We can take an active role on so many levels and one way we can be truly pro-active is through our connection with the higher self. Accessing the subtle whisperings of those inner teachers - that inner tuition. As we take those inner, subjective, personal journeys we raise the overall global consciousness. We come together in telepathic union and in physical space union.
