If that were True

I have had a startling number of people lately seeking guidance on how to stay within a high vibrational state while dealing with people who don’t necessarily see the world the way they do. Some admit to feeling the need to leave loved ones behind so they could truly evolve. I have watched countless others confused with all the different teachings out there. Witnessed people morph before my very eyes into their shadow self on more occasions then I care to count. Observed many who quite honestly prefer to stay oblivious to the fact that our world is in need of repair. Others who are quite willing to leave this world behind in the hopes of finding something more peaceful then our current existence. I’ve even watched countless lightworkers say we are good enough, worthy enough, and ascended enough to just live life free of judgement, no concerns of moral rights or wrongs, oozing with little to no regard on how our thought, intentions, and actions are affecting others.

Well, my friends, if that were true, the world would not be in the state it is today. Why do I know that? Because we have already been living that way for thousands of years, just on the other extreme of that spectrum. You remember, don’t you?? Full of sin, helpless to find our way on our own. Powerless to the judgement coming down upon us. The only difference I see between then and now is that we have swung the pendulum to the other extreme. Pure source energy, no judgement required, powerful beyond measure, with no need to compromise our individual goals for the sake of anyone or anything.  Does that really sound like the makings of a new world?

There is a balance I feel we need to move towards somewhere between these two extremes, both individually and also within the collective conscious. The point where we know, believe and teach we are from source energy instead of pure evil, but the awareness and honesty of not yet living within that full embodiment of the great I Am. Because let’s face it, we all have room for improvement.

The midpoint between selfless sacrifice and pure selfishness. Yes, I did just say that. Two extremes that seem to be playing out in the world right now. The midpoint would be more like compromise when needed. Respect all others by doing your part to clean up your own thoughts and intentions, while ensuring we encourage and cheer on all others as they evolve into the next stage of human evolution. Not an every man for himself, leaving the pack behind to fend for our own survival – kind of mentality. Is that really what you think will create peace on earth? Abandon all others with no belief in their higher potential beyond your own? Or worse yet, staying status quo and honestly believing we are doing the best we can?

I implore this world to find that sweet spot somewhere in the middle, understanding there are laws that do govern this universe, and yes, that does include right and wrong ways to treat all others. We seem to have moved from needing to appease a raging God to not needing to appease anyone at all other than ourselves. Do you really think that will work? From my perspective, anything less then respect for all others will achieve nothing beyond repeating the past.

Perhaps you think I am being judgmental or old-school to point out there are obvious rights and wrongs in this world. However, I have always gone with the notion that if you can’t globalize a teaching to all people within the collective conscious, including those who negatively exert their own force on someone else’s basic human rights, then the teaching should not be applied at all. Do you really think that exerting force or negative influence over another is Divine will? A lesson we need to learn or experience? I for one don’t think so. I think it is just the sad reality of which we find ourselves and the world today.

So, let’s look at this. Can we say we should always follow our joy regardless of how that makes others feel? Well, I am pretty damn sure there are parents of school shooting victims and countless other victims of crime in this world who would disagree with a blanketed statement to follow that intuitive nudge. Because spoiler alert here, not all intuitive nudges and soulful desires take into account the well being of all others. Some are just basic, selfish acts of their own twisted perspective of joy. Right or wrong not even being considered.

Joy is traditionally a high vibrational state that is true, but how do you define and differentiate between all others and their states of joy? I know many in this world who find joy in harming others, using their power to exploit or abuse. Is that a teaching we can rely on to move us forward into a new age? I, for one, believe we must go back to the basics. Love and respect for yourself and all others. Period.

The world will not change unless we do. Find the balance within and I promise you, we will experience it outwardly in a world that is most certainly craving change. No one is being left behind, so we might as well start working together, see the source potential in all things, and create a more unified fashion to helping ourselves and all others see, experience, and be the light. Our collective programming most certainly needs to change, but true shifts in perspective will only happen globally when we find the balance in our teachings and daily lives.

Transformation is always underway. It is up to us, both individually and collectively, to decide what kind. Hiding from our reality won’t change it. Turning a blind eye won’t negate it. Acknowledging all the darkness in this world will not create more. Limiting the soul potential of any co-creator of this world will not suffice. If only that were true, we would have changed the world eons ago.

It is time to find balance. That is the honest to God truth.
