Making Life Sacred and Creating Richness in This Transitional Space
14th July 2014
Our Planet is in transition. We are in the middle of a process that is changing all life on Earth! Of course we know this, we have talked about it and hoped for it, but now we are living the Reality. It is not easy, but there are solutions and ways of dealing with the changes to facilitate a graceful and easy personal transition. The purpose of this series of articles will be to suggest ways of moving with the Transition in order to make life meaningful and rich, even in the crucible of change.
In the last few weeks I have really noticed these changes. First...the weather and the crazy weather patterns. There is no doubt that unusual weather patters are asserting themselves everywhere on the Earth. Then, we have all become aware of the economic hardship on the Earth as "austerity" and bank fraud take more and more money from the working people and give it to the rich who are becoming obscenely richer and richer by the day. Our Earth seems to be locked into an Economic system that just sucks up resources and wealth leaving the majority with nothing.
In our emotional and spiritual life we may have also become numb and cognitive disonance is setting in. We are told that everything is wonderful, yet plainly it is not, and at this time there are two wars going on where civilian populations are being bombed and shelled by military, in plain view, and nothing is being said in media. We are focussed on our own little sphere, on ourselves and our personal happiness, and we have forgotten how to be part of a community. In the past, a community was a small entity, it was "local" and you knew the people in your community. Now community is Global, and we may feel exhausted and alienated by trying to fit ourselves into some sense of community that includes our own well being and that of others. But in the Fifth Dimension we are all inter-connected and so any definition of community includes all of us together.
Then, we daily face issues with regard to food, health and living space as the population increases and resources are used at an ever faster rate. We seem to be caught up in a consumer "race", working and earning in order to consume ever more and more, just to stay alive. It is easy to either become despondant or to just close out what you can't cope with.
But, we are not alone in this transformation, we have Angelic and Spirit helpers who have guided us to this point, and are now willing to help us as we take the first steps in the Conscious Creation of something new. But it will be our Creation and will be based on the choices that we make.
In reality, if we look at our Planet right now, we have become caught up in a Money Economy that sees Nature and the Planet as Resources to be consumed and used in the creation of "wealth". This wealth is measured in monetary terms in regards to how much can be held by an individual as personal resources and consumption. In this view of our Earth, we are simply exisiting on a dead world, consuming until all is consumed and then hopefully we will go somewhere else and continue with this endless consuming.
The Earth was never designed to function this way. In the original Blueprint the Earth was a Sacred and Self-Sustaining entity. The Planet was designed to support life in an endless cycle of life, death and renewal. In the originl blueprint, humans were simply a part of the Planetary ecosystem, and they were designed to find their sense of joy and well being in supporting and being supported by Nature.
I guess in our culture we call this the "Garden of Eden" or "Paradise", where everything functions in balance and harmony. But then we left the garden in favor of greed and power and consumption and wealth. And now we have chaos as the Earth responds to this pressure. The Planet has moved to the Fifth Dimension where the inter-connection of all things is the key aspect of life. We know that we cannot live without taking into account the lives of all beings on our Planet, for if the Planet dies then so do we.
At the Fifth Dimension we have to raise our consciousness and perception and start to understand what it means to live in a Planetary Community and to be connected. It is to understand that all life is a part of us and that what happens on the Planet happens to us. There is no escape....only the ability to interact with Nature and to Create and Weave something new into this Transitional Space.
A Life that is Sacred
In a world where human life and nature have become cheap, it seems strange to suggest that what is needed is a return to the acceptance of Life as Sacred and part of the Sacred River of All Life.
The Ancients knew and understood that Life was a gift and that it was magical. They understood that the Planet was a living being and that all beings on the Earth were joined in a common destiny shaped by Nature herself. They connected with the Elementals and with the Spirits and they tried to live a life in balance with nature. They created communities and celebrated the Rites of Passage and the Sacred Ceremonies of Life.
Their lives were Rich, even if they were not "wealthy" in material terms.
In order to return that "richness" to our lives we need to disentangle ourselves from the need to seek wealth and consume, and return to the way of life that honors the Sacred in All Life.
This is not easy to achieve. Quite recently I enrolled for a course with a well known American Professor who was offering a course on a Sustainable future for the Earth. This course was presented withon the framework of the Consumer Economy model, and suggested that the only way to ensure a "sustainable" future was to achieve "more", more economic growth, more people, more corporations, banks and financial power. It seemed insane to me that the so called answer to the problem was more of the problem, but these people are "inside" their own box. When asked about the pollution and destruction of habitat, the eminent professor ensured us that it was possible to "uncouple" these effects from future growth by having "cleaner" industry and manufacturing. Of course, people like this don't really seem to mind the destruction of the Earth as they believe by then they will simply get into their spaceships and buzz off to another planet to continue consuming.
I don't know about you, but I kind of like this Earth and would like to see our small blue planet becoming the Star of Light that she is meant to be, together will all who live on her.
For this reason, I travelled recently to Lake Baikal in Siberia to work with a Family of Light group to reconnect with the original purpose for Earth and with the power of the Shamanic tradition. Lake Baikal is the largest fresh water body on the Earth. It is a pristine and clear environment where the Elementals are still empowered and active according to the original blueprint. It is also one of the seed points for Shamanic tradition.
Shamanism is a view of the World that sees the Sacred and Spirit in all things. We can learn from the past as we move into the future. We need to learn form our past how to perceive the Sacred, to listen to Nature and to work with Nature to create a rich and balanced life as a Planetary Community. In the coming months I will be writing more about how we can make these connections in our everyday lives and how we can assist the Planet in her transition back into the original blueprint and then to evolve forward as a Planetary Community.
A Life that is Rich
When we begin to understand that all life is Sacred, we begin to see life in a different way. We begin to see the colors and the patterns of life. That is because we are not having all our attention taken up by the relentless need to earn and consume, we have time to notice the great symphony of life and our place within it.
We can begin by connecting with the Sacred Circle of Life. We are Galactic Shamans walking in the Fields of Dreams, and we are here to create our Dreams. We are also here to share in the Common Dream of Life and Creation, and to appreciate the Grand Creation of the Planet and all her beings. When we approach life and the planet from a perspective of wonder and gratitude and appreciation, we begin to see things that we would not see otherwise.
And we begin to appreciate our place on the Earth and our part in this Great Transition.
We may also begin to feel that we ned to "walk our talk" and begin to see how we can change our lives to align with the incoming energies of the new. These new energies will take us back to the original blueprint and then onwards to a Planet in Harmony and Balance. But we must take those steps towards harmony and balance, and look at the ways in which our lives are still connected to the outgoing system of consumerism. At this time of change, it is inevitable that we will live with one foot in each world, so to speak, but we should be working to ensure that we move more and more towards a world of harmony and balance, and that we make these choices.
It is up to us. This is what we are here for. We need to make the life choices that will align us with an Earth Future that is rich and harmonious and supports All Life.
Thought for the Day: Today I will make Choices that support Life on Earth........Today I will be aware of the Richness of Life.....Today I will be aware that all life is Sacred!
