A Global Awakening Is Happening

aAwakening is word getting thrown around more and more nowadays but does any of us really know what this means?

What does awakening mean on a personal level? How about on a global level? How does awakening apply to business? What about family, schools, the arts…

Is every aspect of our lives being affected in some way? And what is happening really?

Maybe we can get some insight from the root meaning of the word Awaken: “to spring into being,” also,”to wake up;” “to rouse from sleep” or “to stir up, rouse to activity”. Source: http://www.etymonline.com

But what are we awakening to?

I posed the question on facebook, “What does the global awakening mean for you?” and here’s some of the responses:

“Global awakening means to me the evolution of consciousness to who and what we are as a being and a species along with the withheld information about humanities origins and our divine connection with God and the Universe.”
~ Shannon Ramon Jeffries

“Reaching the core, of our light body. Realization that humanity is one working mechanism. Activation of our dormant DNA strands that completes as part of our evolution. It means far much more.” ~ Priscilla Thompson

“We are not alone…” ~ Lama Pittman

“Interconnectedness, a conscious responsibility for our own evolution and leading by example.” ~ Maria Munoz

“Through earth and cosmic changes, evolving to a higher level of existence; becoming a more spiritual, loving, effective and responsible being.” ~ Heidi Herman

“When the harmonic resonance of collective consciousness and unconsciousness amplify ‘good’ ideals actions and dreams. When utopia over topples this current distopia of reality…” Lozza Natili

“It is the ripple effect. One person becomes enlightened, then his surroundings, then his community, his city, his country, his world, the universe at large. Everyone is Consciously living… and the realization that all is One.. is understood Consciously.. by all.” ~ Kalani George

As we can see the concept of a global awakening means different things to different people. Though if we look closely we can see some ideas that we may even call universal in relation to what this awakening means to me, you and the average joe next door:

Global Awakening Concepts

  • Remembering Our Connection To Source
  • Remembering Our Connection To Each Other
  • Realizing That We Are A Global Community
  • Taking Responsibility For Ourselves & Our Actions
  • Leading By Example
  • Being Conscious or Aware In Our Everyday Lives
  • Realizing That Heaven Is Here On Earth

A lot of people toss around the concept of universal love emerging within the hearts of all. That this love will enable the world to make the fundamental shift necessary to move into the next stage of human evolution. I think this is too much of a leap for the world to take right now.

You can’t fake a feeling. You can’t just walk up to someone and expect them to be down with the “All we need is love program.”

Later on. Further down the path yes. The individual will come to conclusion naturally. But at first they’ll just shut down, turn off, and tune out.

It seems that the most influential concept that may be necessary and easily accepted by everyone is the idea of our inherent connectedness.

Utilizing The Law of Attraction

by Jack Canfield

loa

The law of attraction states that you will attract into your life–whether wanted or unwanted–whatever you give your energy, focus, and attention to.

 

You are constantly giving off vibrations of energy when you think and feel. These vibrations can be picked up and received by other people. That’s why people say, “he has good vibes,” or “he gives off bad vibes.” You are constantly giving off vibrations — literally!

 

If you’re feeling excited, enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, loving, appreciative, abundant, prosperous, relaxed and peaceful, you are giving off positive vibrations.

Full Moon and Eclipse Aug. 5-6 2009

Everything that rises has to descend.  If the arch of an arrow stretches it must be released. These are laws of equilibrium and duality.  This galactic cycle that is ending now is that of the new Mayan year.  The next galactic cycle is the Magician.  It is the galactic cycle that comes to activate the warriors of light. The energy that takes you toward a higher vibration to prompt you toward the light.  It is like the confusion prior to an eclipse.


All the animals become noisy and are confused. In the case of the human beings that have not done any personal work of awareness, they are going to feel the energy stonger leading to exhaustion, headaches, anger, discussions. This energy guides each and everyone of you to self understanding.  Therefore the importance of inner purification before the eclipse, so that each may benefit from this energy. Prepare your body, cleansing your “house” to receive the new energy.  The challenge of the galactic cycle is to balance the duality through the vision of service, knowing when to say “yes” or “no”.

The Eagle is the most important force for the warrior representing the Vision. The Vision towards Mother Earth that comes through the synchronicity of situations which She brings us and the correct use of your free will on behalf of the Light. The lunar eclipse falls on the day of Lunar Eagle.  That is the vision of the moon.

To Renounce or Not Renounce

buddhist-robe-begging-bowl

That was the question posed to the great Ramana Maharshi…

Ramana Maharshi – The life of action need not be Renounced

Question : The yogis say that one must renounce this world and go off into secluded jungles if one wishes to find the truth.
Ramana Maharshi:
The life of action need not be renounced. If you meditate for an hour or two every day you can then carry on with your duties. If you meditate in the right manner then the current of mind induced will continue to flow even in the midst of your work. It is as though there were two ways of expressing the same idea; the same line which you take in meditation will be expressed in your activities Continue Reading…

Prajnaparamita The Heart Sutra

Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, meditating deeply on Perfection of Wisdom, saw clearly that the five aspects of human existence are empty*, and so released himself from suffering.  Answering the monk Sariputra, he said this:

Body is nothing more than emptiness,
emptiness is nothing more than body.
The body is exactly empty,
and emptiness is exactly body.

THE DECLARATION OF EVOLUTION

by Dr. Timothy Leary, Ph.D.

declaration-evolution

THE DECLARATION OF EVOLUTION

When in the course of organic evolution it becomes obvious that a mutational process is inevitably dissolving the physical and neurological bonds which connect the members of one generation to the past and inevitably directing them to assume among the species of Earth the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them, a decent concern for the harmony of species requires that the causes of the mutation should be declared.

The Cathar Prophecy

The Prophecy of the Cathars 1244

And the Cathars proclaimed that…

It has no fabric, only understanding.
It has no membership save those who know they belong.
It has no rivals, because it is non-competitive.
It has no ambition, because it only seeks to serve.
It knows of no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
It is not of itself, because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions
It acknowledges all great teachers of all the ages who have shown the truth of love.
Those who participate practice the truth of love in all their beings.
There is no walk of life or nationality that is a barrier. Those who are, know.
It seeks not to teach, but to be – and by being, enrich. It recognizes that the way we are may be the way of those around us, because we are that way.
It recognizes the whole planet as a being of which we are a part.
It recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transition, the ultimate alchemical act of conscious change of the ego into the voluntary return to the whole.
It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice but in the subtle realms of loving.
It salutes all those in the past who have blazoned the path but have paid the price.
It admits no hierarchy or structure, for no one is greater than another.
The members shall know each other by their deeds, and their being, and by their eyes and by no other sign save the fraternal embrace.
Each one will dedicate their life to the silent loving of their neighbor and environment and our world, while carrying out their daily task, no matter how humble.
It recognizes the supremacy of the great ideal, which may only be accomplished if the human race practices the supremacy of Love.
It has no reward to offer, either here or in the hereafter, save that of the ineffable joy of being and loving.
Each shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by stealth and teaching only by example.
They shall heal their neighbor, their community and their world.
They shall know no fear and feel no shame and their witness shall prevail over all odds.
It has no secret, no Arcanum, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want to be so, the world will change if we change ourselves first.
All those who belong, do so because they belong to the Church of Love.

Secret For World Peace

Unlocking The Secret To World Peace

peace-in-oneself-peace-in-the-worldWorld Peace Is Possible!

The only way for World Peace to be present within Humanity is for Humanity to be present to the wellspring of Peace that is present within themselves and the World.

Peace is here! No really it is. It’s waiting for you to find it. Peace is patient and sure. It knows that someday you’ll hear it’s call and when you do your life will change forever.

It’s an amazing time that we’re living in now. I remember the awesome feeling I had when I joined committed Peace keepers from Toronto and all over the world and marched for Peace. It was beautiful. So much love, joy and of course Peace.

And to see and know that this was really the first time that the world could see that people from every nation yearned and craved peace. That they wanted all of us to know that peace was possible if we just chose it. It didn’t matter color, creed, or country, we all marched for Peace.

That’s what John and Yoko tried to say, that Peace was possible if we chose it.

martyn3/syssym/ssh76So to help unlock the Peace that’s present in this moment and within yourself I share with you a prayer for peace. For more info check out our World Peace Prayer group on facebook.

For I know now that Peace begins with me and is Humanities rightful legacy. A legacy that I live out daily with all my thoughts, words and actions.

Peace is here now!

Peace is here Forever!

I give thanks for this sacred moment of Peace. I give thanks for an eternity of Peace. I give thanks for my global family who lives in Peace. I give thanks for the bonds of love that bind us together and give us strength and courage to create the world of our dreams.

A Peaceful World.

A Loving World.

A World Full Of Infinite Possibilities.

PeaceThe Secret To Having Peace On Earth

Peace can only be possible once we realize that peace is the only way toward total prosperity. The only sane solutions for our lives are peaceful peaceful solutions.

The only way for Peace to be present within Humanity is for Humanity to be present to the wellspring of Peace that is present within themselves.

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.” ~ Robert Fulghum

We have to dedicate ourselves to Peace. To feeling peaceful, to speaking peacefully, to living peacefully. The new dawning Oneness consciousness that’s emerging on the planet will enable the possibility of peace to become a full blown potential that we give birth to in our very own lifetime.

“One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news.
Many people, giving some of their time, can make history.”
Peace Pilgrim

Have you heard of the Peace Pilgrim before? She’s a women who dedicated her life to peace.

About Peace Pilgrim

From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only “Peace Pilgrim” walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to “remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.” In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America.

You can find out more about the Peace Pilgrim and her amazing journey @ her website: http://www.peacepilgrim.com/

The Secrets To Peace

The following is an inspirational piece of writing by Saskia Davis entitled the Symptoms of Inner Peace. If we look at them a little differently we can unlock the secret code of peace that lays hidden within the words. She illustrates a series of thought patterns and behaviors that if adopted can unleash the peace presence within us all.

SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE™

© 1984 Saskia Davis

A tendency to think and act spontaneously

rather than on fears based on past experience

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment

A loss of interest in judging other people

A loss of interest in judging self

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

A loss of interest in conflict

A loss of ability to worry

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature

Frequent attacks of smiling

An increasing tendency to let things happen
rather than to make them happen.

An increased susceptibility to love extended by others
as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it

WARNING: Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many already have been exposed; and it is possible that people, everywhere, could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

If you have some or all of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition of inner peace may be too far advanced to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.

Law of Attraction & The Power of Focus

The Law of Attraction

Embracing The Power of Focus

Recently the power of focus and the law of attraction has been a key driving force in my life. Daily I’m reminded to keep focused on my goals and to use my gifts as creative expressions in my life.

Even to show me what I’ve been out picturing in my life and holding as a resonant frequency my daughter has begun to become effected by my thoughts.

She has shown me what it’s like to set the law of attraction in motion and then to suddenly change your mind.

She’ll ask for something like cereal and I’ll get up and go make it for her and then she’ll change her mind and not want it. She’ll ask for a glass of soy milk so I’ll go get it for her and before I start pouring it she’ll change her mind. Over and over this was happening.

Then just the other day it hit me, “This is what I’m doing with my life.” I thought to myself.

I’ll start something and then abruptly change my mind. I’ll set the power of the law of attraction in motion and just as the ball starts rolling in my life I’ll change my mind. Effectively getting me no-where and just frustrating all those people in my life who are hoping for my best and want to see me succeed.

Focus & the Law Of Attraction

Well this has all changed now. Daily I focus in on my targeted goals and anything that does not bring me closer to them get’s dropped out of my life.

Over the last few weeks, my life has become like a laser as I focus in on my chief goal, and do everything in my life to bring that dream into reality.

I’m becoming focused and as a result of that focus my power has increased 100 fold and the Law of Attraction has kicked into overdrive into my life.

So this process that has unfolded in my life has reminded of a concept that I first read in Jim Collins’ amazing book Good To Great.

In it he proposes that there are two types of companies, hedgehogs or foxes, and it’s the hedgehogs that move to ultimate success, blowing there competition out of the water.

The Law of Attraction – Are You A Hedgehog of A Fox?

In his famous essay “The Hedgehog and the Fox,” Isaiah Berlin divided the world into hedgehogs and foxes, based upon an ancient Greek parable: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”

Good to Great, by Jim Collins

Are You a Hedgehog or a Fox?
Chapter 5, pages 90–91

The fox is a cunning creature, able to devise a myriad of complex strategies for sneak attacks upon the hedgehog. Day in and day out, the fox circles around the hedgehog’s den, waiting for the perfect moment to pounce. Fast, sleek, beautiful, fleet of foot, and crafty—the fox looks like the sure winner. The hedgehog, on the other hand, is a dowdier creature, looking like a genetic mix-up between a porcupine and a small armadillo. He waddles along, going about his simple day, searching for lunch and taking care of his home.

The fox waits in cunning silence at the juncture in the trail. The hedgehog, minding his own business, wanders right into the path of the fox. “Aha, I’ve got you now!” thinks the fox. He leaps out, bounding across the ground, lightning fast. The little hedgehog, sensing danger, looks up and thinks, “Here we go again. Will he ever learn?” Rolling up into a perfect little ball, the hedgehog becomes a sphere of sharp spikes, pointing outward in all directions. The fox, bounding toward his prey, sees the hedgehog defense and calls off the attack. Retreating back to the forest, the fox begins to calculate a new line of attack. Each day, some version of this battle between the hedgehog and the fox takes place, and despite the greater cunning of the fox, the hedgehog always wins.

Berlin extrapolated from this little parable to divide people into two basic groups: foxes and hedgehogs. Foxes pursue many ends at the same time and see the world in all its complexity. They are “scattered or diffused, moving on many levels,” says Berlin, never integrating their thinking into one overall concept or unifying vision.

Hedgehogs, on the other hand, simplify a complex world into a single organizing idea, a basic principle or concept that unifies and guides everything. It doesn’t matter how complex the world, a hedgehog reduces all challenges and dilemmas to simple—indeed almost simplistic—hedgehog ideas. For a hedgehog, anything that does not somehow relate to the hedgehog idea holds no relevance.

Princeton professor Marvin Bressler pointed out the power of the hedgehog during one of our long conversations: “You want to know what separates those who make the biggest impact from all the others who are just as smart? They’re hedgehogs.” Freud and the unconscious, Darwin and natural selection, Marx and class struggle, Einstein and relativity, Adam Smith and division of labor—they were all hedgehogs. They took a complex world and simplified it. “Those who leave the biggest footprints,” said Bressler, “have thousands calling after them, ‘Good idea, but you went too far!’ ”3

To be clear, hedgehogs are not stupid. Quite the contrary. They understand that the essence of profound insight is simplicity. What could be more simple than e = mc2? What could be simpler than the idea of the unconscious, organized into an id, ego, and superego? What could be more elegant than Adam Smith’s pin factory and “invisible hand?” No, the hedgehogs aren’t simpletons; they have a piercing insight that allows them to see through complexity and discern underlying patterns. Hedgehogs see what is essential, and ignore the rest.

Become A Hedgehog A Set The Power of the Law of Attraction Into Motion
Become a hedgehog today. Focus in on a single goal or mission. Keep your energy concentrated and focused don’t let it be diffused and weaken your life.
