If we examine the world and the state it is in right now, things might not look very encouraging. It is a world dominated by greed, violence and lies. Discord and hatred are everywhere. We are constantly fighting against each other over differences of opinion and belief. Why is this happening? Why can’t we just get along? Where is this ‘spiritual era’ so greatly heralded by mystics and prophets?
It is right here. In the midst of all the internal struggles of humanity, our deepest strength lies secretly hidden.
If we were all meant to have the same thoughts, the same beliefs, the same outlook on life, then why are there so many of us? Why is the world not just populated by one perfect being, which could then call itself ‘God’?
Because diversity is the cornerstone of our existence.
In other times, people who thought different and defended new ideas were persecuted and killed, stifling any attempt to change the widely accepted status quo.
But not anymore.
Today we live in a time of empowerment, a time where all ideas have equal validity. It’s already so ingrained in us that we take it for granted. Each individual has the right to speak and be heard, to believe and to act freely. This includes the good, the bad, and the ugly. Who are we to censor anything? Even if we disagree with most of it, we can’t deny that this freedom is accelerating our collective development immensely, on every level. So, instead of resisting, let’s celebrate it:
-By being tolerant instead of forcing our ways onto others.
-By being understanding instead of judging.
-By showing ourselves to the world instead of building walls against the ‘evil’ outside.
We will find that the only evil we experience is the one we bring to our lives ourselves, and that people only disappoint us because we expect them to behave according to our standards. It is time to change our paradigm.
When I look at people, I see potential. I see a seed that is quietly growing in all of them. Even in those who choose to be blind, deaf and dumb. Even in those who are violent, intolerant, or dominated by fear. All human beings are meant to awaken, and walk their own path. Each of us is only waiting to be touched by consciousness and purpose, and once our inner fire has started to burn, it can never be put out.
You, all of you reading this blog right now, have the tools at your disposal. You already have all the wisdom you could ever need, so pass your message on to the world, whatever it is and whether you express it in words, actions, feelings, or just by being. If it comes from the heart, it will always be heard.
Nobody can force other people to change, but our messages are sparks capable of igniting the spirits of others, even if only as tiny candles in the black night at first. But soon those flames will grow, overcoming the stranglehold of darkness, and then they will start to create little sparks of their own. The awakening of humanity will be the biggest nuclear reaction ever seen on this world, and the point of reaching critical mass is drawing nearer each moment.
I have just one thing to say to that:
Let the fireworks begin!
