OK, but not that way.
I see this collective experience as entities, trying to tell us to walk a path that is ripe with ways to fall to our demise.
However, I do see the need to walk a new path – a different one. Just not the one they want us to go down.
I see the dissolution of boundaries between us. In horrific ways. This idea that we should all be forced to do something that harms us. Being normalized.
However, the idea of boundaries dissolving so we can understand our connection to each other would serve us. And the path humanity needs to take.
And so I’ll say it again:
OK, but not that way.
“…In short quantum physicists discovered that reality could no longer be viewed as a complex of distinct things and boundaries. Rather, what we once thought to be bounded ‘things’ turned out to be interwoven aspects of each-other – Ken Wilber
I understand the need for us to evolve as a species. And the only way off this path of destruction and violence we are being coerced down is greater connection.
If we can sense another human beings pain due to a greater capacity to consciously connect, through the dissolution of the walls we put up between each other to protect the wounded aspects of our psyches, we could understand with certainty that when we hurt someone else, we are hurting ourselves.
This is how our species moves forward and evolves: Through greater understanding of our inter-connectivity.
So I see the dissolving of boundaries as necessary. Just not this way.
And I dream of a planet where we don’t have these rigid barriers up. If we could let up the energetic effort it takes to keep others from coming near what is ours, whether that be our hearts, our provinces or our countries, that would free up a lot of energy.
I’m not saying we’re at the point where we as a species are mature enough to meander that process – yet.
I’m saying, to let down the US vs Them narrative would do a lot to calm the nervous system of the people of this planet. And when the nervous system is calm we can take in new information and evolve. See where I’m going?
We are meandering toward the entrance of the path we are destined to take. But right now, we’re in the belly of the beast of doing it the wrong way.
This process has it’s purpose, even though it is horrific to witness…
Doing it the wrong way helps us figure out the right way.
“Losing our existing ego-boundaries can sometimes feel like coming apart at the seams: we lose control over what is allowed into conscious awareness and what is kept out, and as a result, our existing identity is likely to be invaded by parts of ourselves we preciously have managed to keep at bay. Howard Saspartas “
This quote speaks to our collective experience. There are many who don’t want to see what is happening in the world. They want to stay in a protective bubble – some of light and love, some by gripping to a desire for things to return to normal. The commonality is a desire to keep certain information from entering their consciousness. Who can blame them?
But this is escapism – the very thing that has led us down this destructive path.
It is of course necessary to connect with energies that support healing and inner well being – it’s required for the nervous system to function appropriately, in order to be able to evolve consciousness. However…
One cannot avoid the truth of what is occurring on this planet.
This desire to turn away, to avoid being uncomfortable by denying the acceptance of deep truths about the history of humanity and the repetition of this history must be examined.
If human beings are to evolve they have to face the parts of their humanity that don’t feel good to face. They have to accept the existence of darkness, shadow, whatever you want to call it in order to have any chance of moving into any sort of light or love.
You use light and love to help you do this – the light is what shows you the shadow.
The light is the flashlight – it shows you the information you need. Does this make any sense? We can’t see the truth of what lives within the collective experience if we have not grounded ourselves in the work of connecting with a frequency that heals and awakens consciousness.
Blame is something that we can use as a guidance system for us to heal. When we feel blame coming up towards the government or pharmaceutical companies or our Uncle Larry for banishing us from the dinner table, we can examine that.
What is the rage of rejection trying to tell us?
Well, it could teach us about how our lives are run according to a primal desire to NOT be rejected, cast away, abandoned. And if we examined this fear of rejection, it wouldn’t take up so much space within. And we could feel SO much freer. And less tired. More open minded because we wouldn’t be holding onto so much hurt and resentment.
So – how do we accept this rejection? Not be happy about it (though you’ll feel much happier not being around people with ill feelings towards you) but just accept it as the current experience. IE, stop fighting with the fact that it’s actually happening.
“It is only when we finally do give up and let go that we create the possibility for something to come along to help us through our difficulties and into our next step or phase of life.” – Howard Saspartas
Keep advocating for the breaking down of corrupt systems and the seeking the freedoms that are being stolen. Also allow yourself to mourn the situations we are experiencing.
This is where the letting go happens. Within.
“I am devastated that my family has abandoned me”
“I am enraged that I have to restrict my air way to get groceries”
Look at what it is about these experiences that are so triggering to you. Beyond the obvious.
Perhaps you’ve felt abandoned by your family your entire life. And this is bringing primal awareness to it.
Perhaps you grew up in a home that restricted who you were – told you that who you are isn’t acceptable. That you had to shut up in order to be accepted in the family unit.
So maybe it’s not all about a mask. Or being banished from Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe it’s about these themes of your life that have been suffocating you for years, and these intense, emotional experiences stemming from this collective experience are the way to be free of them. For good.
