Paradigm for A Better World – Part 1: To the Point

We live in a world where we are told be get tough and move with the times or be left behind. Technology impacts our lives more every day and connecting with each other can be instantaneous. Yet I believe that we are more disconnected than ever.

We are supposed to be an advanced civilization yet there is more turmoil and discord in this day and age. To us, cave people seemed primitive and barbaric. Nowadays we have etiquette and political correctness (hence why I used the term “cave people”), yet at our core we are still primitive and barbaric.

Let me explain. Over generations we have learned how to behave so that we don’t appear like our fore-bearers (cave people). However, we haven’t really changed much. We may have changed outwardly but internally, in our hearts, we are still primitive. We even have what we call “primitive nature”. And instead of changing what is at our core (our nature), we have moved to force change with our minds. From the surface perspective it seems to work, but once again our core has not changed. Whenever we are placed into a situation where our lives are at threat or of those we care about, we will react through this primitive nature – it is an automatic response. That which is truly in our core will surface in times of trauma and threat. It’s times like this that our real motives become apparent.

So ultimately, we have not evolved as such, but rather created survival mechanisms to avoid our fears. Fear is the greatest threat on this planet, it has been for millennia – along with self-interest (what is in it for me?)  I will talk about fear more another time.

Now at this point you may be wondering, “what is wrong with wanting to protect oneself and those you care about?” Putting a few people above others causes separations and disconnection. That is why the concept of family (and culture) as we know it is actually harmful. We are all equal (or should be). We are all brothers and sisters on this world and until we realise this, in our hearts, we will have separation.

Primitive nature only exists because we have not evolved – progressed beyond it. We have no idea what is beyond it, as we don’t realise that we can evolve beyond it. We are too busy following our self-interest and “surviving”, that we don’t acknowledge our selfishness and look rather at how we can be more.

We are still looking at the mind as being the dominating factor in our lives, mental intelligence is looked up to and aspired to, and told emotions are weak. But our psyche is not mind dominated, it’s emotional. And it is our emotions/feelings that we are all running away from (by the way fear is emotional). It is what keeps us primal. We are an emotionally cold world – unless it meets our self-interest we really don’t care. By getting tougher and moving faster we move further away from progress and evolution.

The world is in chaos. Something needs to change. Using our minds alone, doesn’t work. It’s obvious! We still go to war; we deface the land and strip oceans. We damage everything and everyone at the same time through these actions. I don’t see that as progress. Our cleverness is destructive, not creative. Continuing this way is mere stupidity.

Progress involves connecting to our core, and this can only be done through the sub-conscious. Only by reconnecting to our inner emotional being can we become truly more loving, compassionate and creative, hence evolving beyond our primal urges.

But we won’t know this as scientific fact unless someone takes a leap of faith to prove it.

I’m willing to at least question the possibility, are you?

The Divine Connection

It’s been 4.5 years and I finally get it! Up until now I have been trying to do it my way. I have wanted to remain self-reliant rather than being God-reliant and I now know the difference. I am not yet doing it constantly but I now understand the process. I know what it feels like. I know that it isn’t scary when I involve God. I am still learning how to use my will to be more loving and feel my emotions as they happen. It is so easy to let my mind take over and listen to the thoughts which keep me repeating unhealthy patterns.

It’s also about raising your vibration so that you connect with higher guides so that the messages that do come through are clearer and more loving. There are many truths out there and if your guides are sharing information on other people or the universe than your connection is not with your higher guides. Higher guides will share information on God’s definition of love and God’s truth. Generally if you haven’t the desire to be more loving and learn what love is as God defines it, then you might not have any of these higher guides. Your guides are attracted to you through your desires, so assess your desires and you will then have an idea of why your guides are with you.

Raising your vibration is done through learning how to love yourself as God defines love. Hence I suggest developing a desire to love yourself and actively process through disharmonious emotions while being connected to God. My hint is to connect with God first and then process your emotions, not the other way around. And when you process, don’t look for words to describe what is going on with you. It is all about the sensation of what you are feeling and words generally don’t come into it.

Processing is the feeling of sensations – all emotions have a sensation. Fear, terror & pain themselves never killed anyone yet most avoid the sensations associated with them. When you learn to connect with God, you are safe to feel all of those sensations that make you feel uncomfortable. It is only your preconceived beliefs that hold you back from openly expressing the sensations of emotions at any given moment. On that note may I also state that they are not all deep, dark and intense!

Emotional processing is personal and other than God, you don’t need to involve anyone. It can be discrete and if you are accessing something deep then move yourself into a space where you can release it without an audience. If you are after an audience then you are not actively processing YOUR emotions. Obviously in some situations moving is not possible, however you can still actively process through the emotion(s).

So ultimately aspire to be connected to God 24/7. Process through the emotions whether joyful or not, notice what truths come through and the sensation of receiving God’s love. You will most likely have an “aha” moment or be in a state of calm. I still get blown away by how simple God’s truths are and remain in awe of them: I thank my guides, my friends, others who have helped me on my journey, God and also myself, for if I had not wanted to know God or myself in the beginning I would not be striving for a life filled with true love and boundless joy.

And for those that haven’t worked it out, that’s life without fear, pain and misery.

Which connection do you choose? I choose The Divine Connection.

Be All That You Can Be

In a world where few people are totally responsible for all of their actions, their behaviour, their safety or their impact on the planet it is easy to blame someone or something else for all of their foibles, shortcomings, weaknesses, faults, imperfections, idiosyncrasies, flaws, defects or what is happening to them– get the picture? To quit smoking, lose weight, be a better person, change a habit or give up an addiction – all it takes is self-discipline. It all starts with you and ends with you.

How many times do you hear people say,” I will when I gain self-confidence” or “when someone shows me”? They want someone else to motivate them, guide them and even do it for them so they can sit back reap the rewards. I’m not saying we can’t enlist the help of others at time to time, but to be aware when this become a habit.

Society is set up so that we give away our personal power and to keep us weak & dependent on the system and culture we live in. We are constantly deceived and being fed misinformation about life in general. We are sheep following those that herd us. It is so easy to listen and believe what others say rather than research the truth for ourselves. It’s easier for someone else to grow our food, make our clothes, create waste facilities and water systems. We create roles so that others cook, clean, iron or provide for us. It is easier to pay for someone else to do it and become dependent on them, yet when the system fails the blame falls on others. Self-sufficiency is lost from the modern western world. In this world of instant gratification, fast food and self-glorification, we as a society have become complacent.

Our potential to be the unlimited beings we have been created to be is quite achievable, but only if we start desiring to be fully responsible for ourselves. Self-discipline is required. It is easy to say “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough.” But right here and now I ask – why not? It also takes persistence. The beliefs, habits and life patterns that have been set up within us are in-ground and it may take time to change, but it will happen. It all depends on how much you want it!

Society has moulded me and I too currently fail at being responsible for myself totally. I have chosen however to focus my journey on becoming more responsible. No one in society can fully help me either as we all have failings. I myself have discovered that the only one who can truly help me is God. God knows me inside and out. Would it not make sense to ask and learn from my designer/engineer/creator personally? It makes perfect sense as I strive to “be all that I can be.”
