It becomes clear to anyone who looks around that we live in a broken world.
Things happen every day that are appalling to say the least, and a lot of them are hidden from public view. Corporations and shadow governments run this world secretly (yet out in the open), and most common people are too internally divided to unite and address the problems that run rampant.
Depending on how we see the world, it could be the worst place to live or the best. This could be the most desolate, corrupt and broken planet in our mostly unexplored cosmos if we let it, and those of you who are alarmed or even depressed because of our world’s current condition are, in a way, right to feel the way you do.
A lot of things need to change. This has become increasingly clear, and every day, more and more people are awakening to the corruption of the elitist forces who strive to rule over us and the necessity to come together and establish something that’s beyond their means to control.
More people are asking themselves what they can do to help create a conscious society that embraces love and unity over the division that’s kept us from socially and spiritually progressing for centuries, but despite our widespread and ongoing awakening, our planet’s still clearly in need of being fixed.
Our rapid depletion of our natural resources and our tendency not to care how we treat the earth could eventually spell our destruction if we aren’t careful, and the people who are primarily responsible for this destruction don’t seem to care one bit that they’re causing it.
Quite the opposite – they seem to know what they’re doing, and yet, they want to do more. They want to continue hurting the earth; depleting our natural resources for personal and financial gain with little concern for what it’ll do to the environment or the harm it could cause our species in the long run.
It’s easy to look at our world’s condition and feel like there’s no hope in sight. There is, however, and it lives within each of us.
How we see the world determines the reality we create for ourselves, and if we look out our windows and see chaos, havoc and ceaseless environmental destruction, then these themes will become more and more apparent in our experience of reality.
We don’t want to deny or ignore the awful things that are happening, but we can be aware of them without letting them skewer our perception of this otherwise beautiful world. We can still look out at the world and see a beautiful (albeit hurting) planet who loves and cares for her precious children – human, animal, insect, etc.
We can still see a breathtaking planet that needs to be taken better care of, and we don’t have to let the awful things that happen here each day convince us that we don’t live in a heavenly reality. I think this world was once heavenlier than it is now, because people loved and respected the earth instead of hurting her for the illusory wealth we’ve created.
I think we once treated this world with more respect than we do now, and those of us who see how awful the endless environmental destruction we’re causing is can recreate this respect, hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
The idea’s floating around in the conscious community that if we make changes in our personal lives, we’ll uplift the collective vibration and inspire other people to do the same. We aren’t necessarily trying to influence or manipulate others into doing what we are, but they’ll gradually pick up on our inspiration, partially thanks to our efforts.
We’re believed to be one consciousness that’s been divided into different personalities and identities, and beyond our individuality, we influence each other’s consciousness for the better or worse.
With this in mind, those of us who are ready to help the earth grow can do our best to be examples of real and lasting change; of love and respect for this planet, and we might influence others in the process.
We might as well try, because we have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Most of us are ready to treat the earth more loving and respectfully than we have so far anyway, so why not give it a try and see if the rest of the world doesn’t start to feel as uplifted and inspired as us?
Before I wrap this up, I wanted to mention the importance of gratitude to our creation of what some have called ‘Nova Earth’. I think gratitude is the most potent way to show the earth that we care about her and we aren’t deterred or depressed by the bad things that continue to happen.
We can wake up every morning with extreme gratitude for the experiences we’ll have that day and the beauty of the earth we’ll have them on. We can wake up excited to contribute to our conscious revolution by living in alignment with spirit, and in doing so, we’ll shift what could’ve been a downtrodden perspective into an uplifted, inspired one.
Upliftment is needed now more than ever, and gratitude will help us uplift ourselves as much as any other divine quality we can use to heal ourselves and our planet.
I’ll repeat as usual that outer change has to accompany inner change, and when we can express constant gratitude and appreciation for this magnificent world, pathways will open up for us (inner and outer) and the earth will show us how heavenly she can really be.
I’ve become more passionate about nature than I was a few short years ago, because I see that it’s a direct way to communicate with the spirit of the earth. Nature is just as alive and conscious as we humans, but most people see it as little more than a series of inanimate objects and resources that can be treated with as little respect or nurturance as possible.
We’ll change this when we can express wholehearted gratitude for everything Gaia provides us, and our love and respect for the earth will eventually ripple out and affect others who might’ve never had a loving or caring thought about this world were it not for our effort and influence.
I probably make mistakes every day that unintentionally hurt the earth (we all probably do), but I’m going to at least do my best to take care of it and show everyone else that treating it how it’s meant to be treated is not only possible, but inevitable.
We’ll have to treat the earth respectfully if we don’t want to carelessly destroy ourselves, and I don’t think destruction’s in our future.
Instead, I think the widespread awakening that’s already taking place will influence more and more people to speak up against the environmental hazards that are accepted as normal, and the people, once aware, won’t allow this destruction to take place any longer.
We’re learning to stand up and use our voices, but for now, the aware among us might have to work extra hard and strive a little more to align with the inner and outer disciplines that’ll lead us to create heaven on earth. It might not always be easy, but it’s what we came here for and we aren’t about to stop now after we’ve made so much progress.
