WALKING INTO THE DARKNESS TO FIND THE LIGHT-A CALL TO ACTION


While we all fluff about worrying about our phone updates, the washing and what coloured underwear to put on, the entire world is suffering from a major energetic imbalance which is a serious danger to the spiritual recovery of humanity. But please, tell me again about your new crystals... Yes this article will have an obvious ironic tone, which is designed to help you pause and reflect on your own many selves and many priorities that are dictated by the ego. This is no joke. I am an optimist but not one fooled by utopian outlooks. The reality is humanity is in serious risk of failure in the last stage of this very important time of spiritual transition so it’s time to sit up, turn Happy Gilmore off and pay attention. The ‘show’ may seemingly be going on but the reality that speaks quietly to us as a Divine Voice is alerting us to the urgency of this matter and it is knocking on the door of your psyche and introducing itself as overwhelm, anxiety, depression, fear, scarcity, worry and excessive stress leading to health crises. 

If we keep ignoring the call to upgrade our consciousness we run the real risk of inviting a baptism of fire. Sounds apocalyptic? Well it is. The destiny of this non-fiction storyline is being written by the minds and hearts of every single human in this world. We have the greatest responsibility here to be guardians of the planet. We cannot only see ourselves as superior when it comes to taking from this planet, we must equally own our place of significance in saving it.. and by it I don’t only mean the physical planet- I mean the Soul Essence of our collective consciousness. We have to make a huge effort to ward off this fate, and we have very little time in which to do it. The task seems big doesn’t it? It is big, and that is why the world is going mad researching what planet to inhabit next rather than focusing on spiritually reconstructing society. 

The greatest minds in the world have all warned us that cataclysmic change is inevitable yet we continue to believe the real solution is out there in the world of technological and scientific advancement. The real solution to our disease is not going to be found by the Mars Rover. No amount of Satellite junk is going to help us solve the riddle and no amount of distractions and devices will make this inherent spiritual void dissolve. The real solution lies in the secret closet of our hearts. This may seem too simplistic but actually it is the hardest of all challenges for the conditioned automated human. I assure you I’m no physicist, cosmologist, anthropologist, astrophysicist, geologist or crapologist. I am speaking spiritual truths that are not my own. They are the ancient truths that have been passed down from those before us and those before them. This world has undergone many resets. We are not immune to changes, transitions and spiritual upgrades. We are slaves to the natural laws and cycles of the universe just as much as any other organic matter so to deem ourselves above universal laws is simply narcissistic and delusional. Can we really reverse or prevent a natural cycle? No we cannot. That is why I’m urging you to not be misguided in believing this transition is about the external. The revolution that we must focus on right now is the revolution of our consciousness. We are on the precipice of significant spiritual leap-a leap that can only be successfully completed if enough of humanity start to do some serious inner work and return to love. But do we really know what love is? We hear it a lot these days: "Be heart-centered" and "Be love", "Love is the answer", "Send Love and Light!" and so on. If it is so easy, why is it  that nothing has fundamentally changed on the planet? The issue is we often mistake things like gratification, sentimentality, admiration, passion, dependency, lust, desire, and other superficial emotions, ideas and conditioned concepts as "Love" in order fill something that is ultimately lacking within us. Do we really understand what love is? What it really means? Let’s look into our intimate relationships... We swipe left or right these days based on a 1.2sec assessment of our magnetism to another human. Wow, this is what thousands of years of evolution has brought us to. When people are leaving marriages because they don’t like their partner’s body anymore, is love there? When women cheat on husbands because he is always busy working to feed their family, is love there? When men control their women because of their own insecurities, is love there? Where is the love? In this kind of love more often than not love is more about control games, jealousy, and envy which are expressions and behaviors based on fear and need. The dynamic of our intimate relationships are a microcosm of the disfunction of our societies globally. We are light years away from love. Is love just a chemical reaction in the brain that result in a "high", where people feed off each other? No this is the definition of psychic vampirism disguised as love. Many relationships are based on this unconscious parasitic mechanism. Their connection is based on nothing but an ego need resulting in co-dependance. Sexual attraction is also mistaken for love. Many people get into relationships for the wrong reasons, be it to escape their loneliness, to fill a hole in their lives, to showcase a trophy or feed off another person. For the most part this happens unconsciously and so people tend to lie to themselves about love and their relationships in many ways, not seeing the other person as he/she is and not even seeing themselves clearly as they are. In fact, the moment truth slaps is in the face we want to run the other way.  To truly love another person we need to see the other as he/she is without trying to change that person. That is the basis for unconditional love, but for that to happen we also need to know ourselves and see us as we truly are , so we don't fall into the trap of illusory projections which only result in disappointment and hurt once the high is over. It's about acceptance of your partner in their shadow and light, being able to give and receive, to be externally considerate and walk into the darkness to find the light. ***** "People convince themselves of their own lies, becoming victims of their own inventions as they begin to direct their lives by standards of behavior, ideas, feelings, or instincts which do not correspond to their inner reality. What is truly serious in this matter is that the individual loses all points of reference regarding what comprises truth, and what comprises lies. He becomes used to considering as true only that which is convenient for his personal interests; everything that is in opposition to his self-esteem or in conflict with already established prejudices, he considers false." John Baines ***** Now let’s look at what the light n’ love community for answers. If we look at how society is functioning, we see proof that spirituality and love is eq
