As the band R.E.M. sings, "It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine".
One of the most powerful wisdom teachings I share with students is the knowledge that "The only constant in life is change". We are on this earth plane to experience change on a daily, weekly, yearly and sometimes hourly basis. Each moment, our cells change, our thoughts change, every thing changes!
Dear Ones, this is the time we have been waiting for and working towards. We are all here to work in our own way to make the world a better place, through our thoughts, words, actions and deeds. Right now, there is great change occurring in our world. This is not something to fear, but rather to embrace. The entire global world is awakening to the fact that we are all connected and dependent upon each other. As the economy here in the US has suffered, the changes are felt around the world in other markets and businesses and to each person who works in their chosen field. We all rely on each other in one form or another. What is also changing is the realization on a major scale that greed and self absorption can no longer rule as it leads to self destruction. We see this in the number of companies sinking along with their leaders who navigated their ships into these murk-filled waters.
The current political debates are based on the fact that we need change or reform, with both parties agreeing that things cannot and should not continue as they have. This in its own way is revolutionary, a shared understanding albeit from different perspectives, but still an understanding that the time is now to evolve. All actions and decisions from the past are being revealed into the light to be reflected upon and changed... from the environment and global warming, to greed and over-consumption, to an emphasis on health care and thinking about each person as an individual rather than further desensitizing humanity as a sequence of numbers.
Around us I see wondrous change occurring, record numbers of Americans are registering to vote and are contacting their representatives to speak about changes they want to see. The spiritual concepts of how to create abundance, the power of gratitude and how to live in the moment regardless of what is occurring around us, is being brought to the forefront of our minds. This is the evolutionary time we have been waiting for, the time to live, to create and to bring the energy of manifestation into action.
As Ghandi said, Be the Change You Wish to See In The World. I explain to students that when we work to create change within ourselves, it's like cleaning out a closet full of junk. We first have to pull it all out, evaluate it and remove what no longer is of value or works in our present time. During this process, we create a bigger mess, as we pull everything out and have to sort through it all. This can cause great emotional and mental stress along with physical exertion to create the new change. This inner personal change we have been concentrating on creating, we now see manifesting around us in our daily lives. Across the globe, souls are awakening with the realization that it's time to clean up our world. As we are doing this, things appear worse before they get better. We're pulling it all out of the dark closet now to really take a look at what we've been doing to the environment, to the economy and to ourselves. Collectively, we've wanted an opportunity to change the world and here it is now!
Use the wisdom you have gained over the years, and don't succumb to the illusion of fear that is rearing its head during this time. As 2012 grows closer, we see the cycle of this age winding down. What was created during this time must be brought to light and scrutinized in order to create the opportunity for new experiences and growth.
Take the good resulting from this experience and move forward to create the life you were meant to live. Like all challenges we face in life, this too shall pass. Use this time wisely for self-introspection, go within to see what you need to clean out and remove. Evaluate what defines you, why you keep the possessions that you do and how you connect with the world and all those in it. Ask yourself the soul defining questions from my book 9 Life Altering Lessons, Who Am I and Why Am I Here? Do you remember the secrets hidden deep within your soul? Perhaps it's time to explore deeper and look within to find the many reasons you are here in this lifetime. Now is the perfect time!
In great love, gratitude and joy,
