Consciousness Rising

Despite the seemingly bleak situation in America after the surprising victory by reality television icon, Donald Trump. Our collective consciousness is rising. Throughout Trump’s entire campaign, he made no secret of his bigotry, sexism, racism, and xenophobia. There is a contingent of Americans that unfortunately ate this up and found him fit to vote for. In an election year where there really were no good or viable candidates, the worst outcome was inevitable. The mass consensus was that everyone wanted change and wanted someone who didn’t have political baggage. They also wanted someone who was not a Washington insider. Disillusioned by the supposed “liberal” Democratic party and it’s failure to address many of the real problems that America faced, a lot of voters turned toward the outsider.

The great awakening of human consciousness has been happening for a couple of years now, but is really ramping up. People are hitting the streets and standing up for equality in the face of adversity and are finding a connection to the divine by supporting love in the face of hatred. The consensus is that people are not happy with the state of our world. Some are voicing their displeasure by rallying behind those that are being made victims of this horrifying presidential choice. They are standing in solidarity with the groups of people that have been targeted by Trump’s hateful rhetoric. Others, are choosing to celebrate in their own hatred, and are bringing their hatred out into the public eye. This, despite it’s horrific appearance, may actually be a blessing in disguise. It is much easier to fix the problem when it becomes visible and is no longer veiled from public scrutiny.  As humanity accelerates into this new age of Aquarius, there are bound to be some growing pains.

This shift into a new Golden Age will see an end of our old way of life and the beginning of a new way of life. One that promises great change in our world. It is up to the individual if they want to come along for the ride and embrace change, or if they want to stay trapped in their old-world way of thinking. Those who have decided to embrace positive change and are working to spread love in the world have ascended up the vibratory scale and are now dwelling on the cusp of a spiritual and humanitarian breakthrough. These individuals are still somewhat residing in their animal-nature, but are on the cusp of rising above it into spirit. This vibratory shift is the step in ascension right before the lid comes off and we enter the spiritual-based half of our consciousness. These individuals who are working to spread love in this time of chaos and hatred will not be left behind when the sweeping wave of ascension comes. On the flip side of this coin, however,  you have fear-based consciousness that this election and the state of the world have really brought into the light of day. Individuals who choose to embrace this way of thinking will remain stuck in their animal-nature, with little possibility of rising above it. They are in threat to be left behind and are will continue falling further into material consciousness and suffering. With their hatred and bigotry they are promoting materialism, and animal-passion that threatens to drag others down with them. They are being driven by ignorance and are powered only by their fear and a fight-or-flight mindset. This has created a great spiritual imbalance in our world.

All of the great Mystery Traditions teach the process of overcoming the lower-self and our animal nature, and embrace a return to our Divine Nature. Religious and mystical teachings allude to the fall of humankind from a divine, spirit-balanced nature to an earthly, material-based imbalanced nature, and the need for us to raise our collective vibration back up. By doing this, we can reunite with our spirit-balanced nature that we have lost touch with. The goal of the Mysteries and of all true religious teachings is to overcome this imbalance and to live in a way that is in harmony with natural law and is driven by love. This can be done with betterment of the self through self-mastery and taming of our animal nature. This is known as “The Great Work”.  Though it is easy for many of us to become angry and frustrated with the state of our world and those who promote hatred, we must overcome these emotions and counteract them with love and mutual acceptance of all types of people. We must cast out our judgement on others and know that everyone walks a hard road in life. The Hermetic Principle of Polarity states that everything is dual and is polarized. To counter-act the strong polarization of the animal-self that our global consciousness is pulling toward right now, we must put forth our Divine Selves. Anything we can do to help our fellow creatures and the less fortunate is a great first step. We must stand in solidarity with love and equality so that we don’t all get washed away in the coming wave of ascension!

The Great Awakening

It has begun…or maybe it has been going on for a while and we are just now noticing. The internet age is upon us and so is the inundation of information.  We are bombarded with information both good and bad, real and unreal, true and false, fabricated and non-fabricated.  It’s hard to tell what to believe anymore.  I always like to use the “Follow the money” when knowing who to trust.  Since mainstream media is owned by corporate interest, it goes without saying that they are not going to report accurate news which could tarnish their  relationship with their corporate partners.

With the impending “election” of our next President the media is trying to drive a wedge between us and trying to separate us even more than we already are. By pointing out the differences in people, we feel alienated and discriminated against.  Someone is always made the victim and the culprit.  This method has been used for centuries to keep people down.  Divide and conquer.  This is being used against us every day. It’s everywhere, all around us. It’s much easier to focus on our differences than to focus on our similarities.

Despite all of the negative news/brainwashing that is being spouted by the corporate media, there is a movement growing. A movement through social media that is not accepting the world in the state that is in and moving toward.  Fed up with the racist/fascist/police state machine, there is a movement growing and it will not be denied.  The corporate media is doing it’s best to paint the movement as a trend or as an angry mob of dissenters.  A mob that wants to ruin our supposed state of peace and values.  This is clearly attempting to paint the movement in a negative light and to try to add distance between it and the common individual. While this may be working on some, it doesn’t seem to be deterring the movement. It seems that every day, more and more people are questioning the way our government is being run.  It is becoming increasingly clear, that they whole system is a fraud.  When this becomes the consensus among the majority of Americans (which it is headed toward), it will no longer be tolerated and change is inevitable.  The question is, will it happen in time?

It seems that the Powers That Be are pushing us toward martial law and a police state that only has the corporate interest in mind. Since our government and officials are clearly controlled by the corporate interest, this is continually pushed down our throats.  The freedom of speech that the internet provides is our saving grace right now.  We should all make it our civil duty to try and propagate information that we feel will help make change in the world.  It may seem to be a small step, but it’s catching on like wild fire.  People are taking notice and the Powers That Be are scared.  That is why they are ramping up the brainwashing and propaganda.  Look for alternative sources for information. Don’t believe everything you read. Do some research and find the biases, but stay focused on the goal of constantly moving forward, but looking to history for patterns. It is up to us and the time is now.  The veil is being lifted and more and more light being shed on the Man Behind the Curtain.  It’s time to forget our differences and focus on our common goals. To live together in peace and to find happiness.  This attitude will be the downfall of the Powers That Be.
