How a rapid change of consciousness is awakening the planet.
One of the greatest lessons that was taught by our time in the comet of Covid-19, is that you can quite literally change the way that you live life. You do not, and maybe even cannot live as before. There’s no normal anymore, only a sweep of change that is quite literally breathtaking in scope, This wash of circumstance has done in a few months, what had previously taken centuries to accomplish – a new possibility of vision, an awakening of consciousness.
Change is incredibly hard, and we as socialized beasts, love our comfort and security. We forget that someone had to invent all of the circumstances of modern life that we now take for granted. There were generations of people who planned cities and sanitation, invented safer modes of travel and distribution of food for the masses. We had grown complacent and unwilling to adjust to the next stages of consciousness that are required.
It is hard to imagine a kind way to awaken billions simultaneously. In fact, many in the Consciousness Community had been bracing for a new, awful war as the catalyst for human’s emergence into Light. Now, that’s not to say that for some this trial wasn’t unlike the loss experienced through warfare. But it is to say, that no matter how challenging, fear-inducing and heartbreaking that this comet has been, it could have been monumentally worse for many millions more.
Many things occurred simultaneously. The swath of this upheaval revealed with ever greater clarity, the misdeeds and malfeasance in gritty relief. The world over, a wave of gratitude was formed. A sense of cohesion grew that was indescribable before quarantine, for those who would quietly, day in and day out, keep the peace, keep the lights on and keep on keeping on. This moment of great contraction was like a wave pulling back out to sea, revealing the shells of what had been, the crawling beasties in the mud, and a feast for scavenger birds flying overhead, scouting to carry away the choicest bits. We got to see what had been hidden in the shallows waiting to pounce. This reveal ushered in waves of protest and reminders of work still left undone that had been begun by previous generations. We were given moments to be awakened to the power of community and the simple support from strangers. We understood what being united together truly felt like, not just what the shouted slogan sounded like. Everyone of us had moments alone and isolated to reflect upon what truly makes a life well-lived and well-made. Perhaps it wasn’t best lived at a million miles an hour after all. Perhaps it wasn’t in the acquisition of trinkets, or in the relentless quest to look good at all costs. We unearthed deeper roots and common bonds, and even more remarkably for those on the spiritual path, a true revealing of our Light that could shine in any darkness.
We grew. Some kicking, screaming and waving weapons, but we grew, and are still growing with an alacrity that is impossible to measure with the old metrics. Which means we must now be the ones to create new markers for evolution, new pathways for humanity, and new avenues of empowerment. New hallmarks of stability and of truth have become our standard to rally behind. We have been upgraded in ways that we have been seeking on our knees in our prayers, and on the mats of our practice.
Thank you for all the intermingled voices that have been in supplication for conscious evolution for centuries. Those who burned for it, who were cut and marginalized for it, because it has begun to come to pass. Now, keep up Beloved! There is still way more to come. The practice you have cultivated up till now will make it even easier for the next waves to swell and break upon a new shore.
