Music to read by below:
I have been doing a great deal of soul-searching lately, digging deep down below the permafrost in my soul. I know the answers to everything are there, it is just a matter of finding them. I have been unbalanced lately by the horrors taking place in the world. They are just so not a part of the world, it all seems so foreign and other worldly. I have spent the better part of three years now writing about what is taking place and waiting for a major shift to arrive in the world and alter all of our lives in one deep breath. Because it never seemed to arrive, it sometimes dragged me down and I grew weary from the journey. I was thinking about it this evening, when I suddenly had an ah ha moment of sorts. I realized it has already arrived for it is not the worldwide shift we think we are waiting for, the shift we have waited for is the shift we make within ourselves! Regardless of what is going on in the world, once we have made that change out of old paradigm thinking into the new, we have then entered the new world and what we had been waiting for is already here. That is what the journey was really all about. If we could go within and change our own realities then our journey was complete.
It seems most of us have spent a lifetime looking outside ourselves for answers when in fact they were inside us all along, like magical gifts within us waiting to be unwrapped. This waiting for the shift to occur was just another example of looking outside ourselves to see the change, when in fact it was happening to us little by little everyday. We are the change! It is our shift in consciousness that changes us and in doing so it begins to change the world one person at a time. So much of the world is awake now, no longer willing to gobble up information we are told without checking the facts. We are no longer gullible or slaves to the masters. We have jumped across the stream to the other side, no longer off-balance with one foot on either shore. We made the leap into the other world and didn’t even know it. Now that we are here in the new world, what are we going to do with ourselves?
Much like rearranging a room in our house to give us a new perspective on our home life, it is time to decide what kind of person we wish to rearrange ourselves into. We can be whomever we desire to be, do whatever we desire to do. There is nothing holding us back but our own doubts and that is where we fine tune our lives. Wipe away the self-doubt and we have no more barriers between us and what we want. It has always been self-doubt and judgments that have kept us trapped in lives we would rather not be a part of. We hear people say ” so change it!”. That is exactly the truth of the matter. We just have to change our thinking and create a new way of being. Without the self-doubt we have freed ourselves at last to become whatever we wish to be, doing whatever we wish to do. It is as simple as that. This is why we have already arrived in the new world and it will make itself known to each of us when we finally jump across the stream to the other side and leave the doubt behind.
Blessings to us all,
