Thoughts on living in this world
It has been some time since I last blogged. This post was inspired by some videos of Bashar I was watching and this one below is very profound.
I hope you feel uplifted by it as I was.
For those who are sensitive this life presents many a challenge. The challenges are in the end one – can this or that situation or circumstance lead me to become more unconditional love than I already am?
We may look around us and see others who seem to be able to simply get on with life with seeming ease, become successful, for whom the road most travelled seems adequately pleasing, and wonder how do they do it. But from our own viewpoint it matters only how true we are to our own hearts, our own soul.
Do you have that prodding within you hinting at your divine nature, and quietly saying when you are hurting: Remember who you are! If so, then we must follow that road less travelled and hear the calling. That calling is what we came into this life to hear. We didn’t really come to hear the ads on TV, or the sound of applause for a wordly achievement or the sound of our own voice. We came to hear the silent voice of our own Divine essence, waiting to rise from the ashes of our limiting self-beliefs and from our refusal to have the courage to reach up and touch our shining light where we are simply love and joy and oneness with all that is.
When it is our time to pass from this life I am sure that the amount of wealth, materials possessions, cars, properties, academic degrees, or any other other accolades we have worked so hard for will not be what matters. What will matter is how much we intended to love, how much we loved, and how much courage we had for both these.
When we look around us we have to admit that there is so little love around. People are so scared to love – to show it and feel it. Love is neither the basis for the many structures of society – business, economics, politics, education, social structures, national and international considerations, religion (although supposedly here love is meant to be the cornerstone), and more. So how will things really change one wonders?
For whatever reason I have long been fascinated by how long this world as it is can continue. The Bible’s end of days and Babylon coming to an end, the Hindu Kaliyug era of moral degradation before a higher way of living arises, and other end of world prophecies have provided much food for thought. An article I read recently by the much respected Barry Long on the end of this world is pretty clear on his views.
I guess if I had to put money on whether life as we know it will continue for a very very long time as is, or will it change – or be forced to change – then I would put my money on the latter. The only question is when this will happen. And who can possibly answer that one.
In terms of the how quickly, this is what I would say. There is what I would call the law of natural balancing. For example, if you keep on eating copious amounts of Macdonalds burgers, fizzy drinks and sweets everyday for 20 years then the balancing law will ensure that your body gets some kind of disease or serious ailment that lets you know that a change is sorely needed – either you make better health choices or the change will come in the form of death. Or if you build a house on inadequate foundations – say the mix of materials is incorrect (I’m no builder!) then you can expect there to be fundamental issues later eg suddenly a crack appears right through the house or the house even falling down. In a similar way I believe that when things change they change quickly. I would also call this the law of healing. Healing occurs now, never gradually or over time. Change never happens gradually – gradual is only a false perception created by our analytical minds of many nows one after the other appearing to be a continuum. There is only the ever eternal now.
So the world is sick, and in need of great healing. Some healing is occurring as we speak with the loving intentions of many good and caring people throughout the planet, but still the main structures upon which worldly life is based are not made to go round because of love, but because of love of money, greed and power. This whole mindset must shift in order for love to become the basis. Jiddu Krishnamurti said that love alone is what leads to right action. So if we have love as the basis of our decision-making we need not worry about whether the right choices will be made, they simply will and the world will be instantly transformed. But we are far from such an enlightened state as yet.
It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will.
So what can be done to help get to that state of affairs in this world?
In the end, there is nothing to do but remove the barriers to love we have ourselves created within us. There is nothing to fear in a way but the absence of love, and so the pull must be towards love, always. As we fail, and hurt another, or indulge in lower emotions, we simply forgive ourselves, do what needs to be done to balance that situation again (speak to the other if need be with honesty) and continue to seek to become conscious again of all our barriers. then we will find ourselves rising into the joy and freedom of love again without effort. Then all becomes healed and balanced again. This is our job, if you like. We cannot stop the world from heading wherever it might be heading but we can seek to remove all the barriers to love that we courageously see within us, and in so doing transform the world. Whilst it may seem such a small contribution to a world that does not listen, it is a massive contribution, because if you don’t do this, who will? You are the one, you are the world, and you are vital to it.
As the video above says life would not be what it is if it didn’t have you in it. The next step is to accept this important role, leave behind lack of worthiness and be the love you already are.
