I’d like to suggest that for some people “the world” is getting better and better, and for others it is getting worse and worse. And that we get to choose which group we are in.
I’d imagine that anyone dropping by here would be firmly in the “getting better” camp, as far as their own personal life goes, anyway, but I thought I’d still like to write about this.
Choosing between love and fear
In The Starseed Transmissions (1982), by Ken Carey, it says there is a “new vibrational pattern descending upon your planet” and people’s experiences are becoming more polarized. This is a channelled book, authored by an angel. Our angel puts it this way:
You are being offered an opportunity to enter a new reality. It is already here for those with eyes to see. Soon it will be the only reality to be seen. Those who tune into the new frequencies will find life growing more wondrous every day. Those who tune into fear will find things falling apart. The worlds of consciousness will begin to form ever more distinctly: the world of Love and Life, and the world of fear and death. There will continue to be some overlap of these worlds for several years to come, some going back and forth for certain individuals, but as the century draws to a close, the polarization will continue to intensify.
There will be better times for some and worse times for others, depending on their orientation and involvement. Fortunately, the natural tendency of your species is to gravitate toward Love and Life. For the vast majority, the times ahead will be better than they expect.
But it’s all going downhill
Many people comment on how the world is getting worse. It’s certainly not hard to find evidence to support this perspective—there’s a plethora of issues to choose from. We can always find evidence to support our outlook.
When we are upset by world issues that are basically outside our own experience, we can observe ourselves and see things that may need healing. For example, if we are especially upset by child poverty, is there something in our own background that leads us to relate to this? If we are especially upset by the government not listening to us, are we still upset our parents didn’t listen to us?
I’m not suggesting we should all be happy about child poverty or that governments don’t listen. I’m saying we can get clues about ourselves from the emotional charges we get from thinking about particular issues. Maybe we can even heal the world “out there” by acknowledging and working with our own wounds in these areas. At the very least a healthier person is going to be more effective should they take up working directly on fixing any of these world problems.
What is real?
I know my life is becoming “more wondrous every day”—things are working out amazingly well. (It hasn’t always been like that… it has taken quite a while.)
Should I be worried about the problems of the world out there? I think it’s a matter of focus. I’m actually a bit of a news junkie, I used to teach kids about recycling and other kinds of environmental stuff, and I recently wrote a book about climate change (I was just dealing with an email request from my editor last night). I get upset by things in the news. But I don’t see the world as going downhill… I see people’s experiences polarizing and becoming more extreme perhaps, but I find myself focusing on ways in which the world is getting better.
I don’t think I am being callous—I know my intuition will lead me in the path of being the most service to other people, and I think we can best help other people raise their energy by raising our own. Funnily enough (if you read my last post), Marelisa has recently written something much like this last bit too—it’s right here.
What to you think? How do you see the world? If you, my wondrous reader, would like to leave a comment, that would be great!
