Polarization. I'm seeing ever more how the polarization which seems to be intensifying on this planet in the long run serves to facilitate the expansion of all of us. It is a major drama in which we all have chosen to play an essential role. As Robert Monroe made so clear in his awesome book Far Journeys, the Earth is a huge, magnificent school, where people have agreed to forget major parts of who they really are in order to go through experiences they could never have had otherwise
Our challenging experiences here on Earth help us to learn, grow, and expand to greater levels of awareness and understanding of ourselves and our world. We all co-create this entire drama as part of the universal unfolding of consciousness as we all, both individually and collectively, explore who we are and who we really want to be in relation with ourselves and all around us. On the deepest levels, each of us is choosing the role we play and facilitating the magical unfolding of all life in its many mysterious forms. The more I open to all this, the more I realize it is silly to get so serious about it.
On Earth, we have chosen to play out the polarization drama in order to facilitate the growth and learning of all. When any of us choose to accept that this is part of what is going on, rather than trying to fight it through identifying with one side of the polarization, we can to some extent step out of the polarization game and have fun playing with the greater synthesis and deeper connection with all that is always available.
I can accept and love everyone and all the roles they play just as they are. There's no need to convince or persuade anyone of anything. By welcoming the dark side to integrate with the light within me, I am playing my essential role (which is no less or more important than anyone else's role!) in inviting a greater synthesis. I just love seeing the underlying unity and interconnectedness!
When I was young, I consciously chose to focus on love and light because it felt more fun and invigorating. I chose not to look at dark side much. I channeled love more vertically, allowing it flow through me, from what I considered to be advanced beings above, and out to others.
As I've grown and opened ever more to All That Is, I now mostly just breathe love horizontally with all around me. I see now that the source of love lies no more in expanded beings in other realities that it does in myself and in everyone who I meet. I've even seen how cold, calculating, "evil" people are playing an important role in this great drama. They are willing to accept and play out the fear projections of all around them and of the collective consciousness of which we are all a part.
I so enjoy breathing this sacred web with all around me now! I've seen and tasted the amazing depth and wisdom that become available when I open to dancing with the darkness, to integrating all parts of existence -- light, dark, and all shades and hues -- into my being and my experience of this existence. Without any judgment of the past, I am thoroughly enjoying opening ever more in the present to all of who I Am and all of who We Are.
Core Beliefs Reflected in Life Experience. As I feel my own reality continually shifting, I become increasingly aware of how the life that each of us creates for ourselves is very much a reflection of how we choose to interpret everything that happens to us. The more I see that I have choice in how I shape my world through my interpretations, the more easy it is to make choices based on my deepest life intentions. I'm continually amazed at how the world around me then shifts to align with these intentions.
It is amazing to me how it becomes ever clearer that each one of us lives in our own reality. We share some aspects of this, particularly the physical aspects, with other people and groups. Yet because it is our emotional, mental, and spiritual interpretations of what happens that most strongly create our experience of life, our lives are much more different than our eyes might have us believe.
There are major groupings, however, which share key aspects of their realities through group consensus. All those who know about the 9/11 or UFO cover-up, for instance, perceive reality in a very different way than those who don't.
Each of us on some level chooses how much power we have in our lives. Some believe that it is the president, or the world's collective political leaders, or a secret cabal which manipulates these leaders who have the greatest power in the world. To the extent that they believe this, it is true and people energetically give up power to these perceived leaders.
For mystics, who know that the deepest power in the world lies within each one of us, the actions of the world's supposed leaders have little interest and influence in their lives. They put little energy and attention that direction, and instead focus on creating their own heaven on Earth.
The most empowering mystics then invite others to join them in creating this paradise, even amidst what to many seems like chaos and confusion. Each of us chooses our own reality much more than most people would ever want to know. It's all quite fascinating!
With this knowledge of the infinite power within and resulting infinite potential in all life, those who step fully into their power are quite literally transforming our world through spreading the invitation. They are inviting us all to transform both our inner world and the world around us. By choosing to let go of fear and embrace the infinite divine power within each one of us, we can choose to ignite that divine inner power and create continual transformation in our lives and world.
