I’d like to share a human moment. Perhaps you’ve been having this moment too.
I am worn out in the sociological and spiritual lessons of this election. I am even more worn out on the fact that so many people have missed those lessons entirely, and appear to be stuck in a 1960’s play-out of adversity and fear.
And that indeed is their lesson.
I’m losing IQ points watching the news. I’m running out of brain cells to process the ridiculousness of the media playing up the “Us vs. Them” aspect of everything, unnecessarily polarizing issues until the news is nothing more than a monotonous drone of single-issue idiot’s delight dissecting “issues” created by a media cycle that beats the horse into the ground, all for the ego and money of “breaking stories first” to the point of wrongly representing facts.
The FBI is under scrutiny for partisan shenanigans. Every news outlet has a bias for their demographic. Truth appears to be sold to the highest bidder.
Who actually believes all of this sculpted hype, I ask myself? Then I watch the hysteria spread effortlessly, like chicken pox through a day care, and I become a little frightened that perhaps I’m the only one who sees our time frame for what it truly is.
That defies the odds, I tell myself.
However, the human part of me worries for the gullibility of our trusting — and groomed-to-be-information-lazy — nation.
Media news cycles continue to peddle the 1950’s McCarthy agenda to keep the masses suppressed through a steady diet of fear, standardization and isolation. And most news outlets don’t even realize the role they play. Good people work blindly in every field, fueled by good intentions.
Thankfully this is not 1950. We are a global community in the 21st century. The wall between the illusion of who we were supposed to be as good consumers, and our very design has human beings — has fallen.
And therein lies the need for so many to remain in a self-imposed sociological vacuum, dreaming of “the good old days”. Which really, were not good.
The masses cry for revolution. Senator Bernie Sanders built a campaign upon this message. Yet we have moved past the time frame where the masculine push and aggressive tear-down of “revolution” is effective. Thus, the movement that Bernie had built struggled for greater footing against the time frame of the feminine.
The spiritual and social physics on 2016 and beyond are not in need of revolution. That is the way of the angry inner child, the ego. To revolt means to change clothes yet to still wear the same fashions.
We are in need of the feminine reflection of revolution, not the tear-down, but the protection and nurturing of the space to grow into something better.
We are in need of an evolution, to outgrow that which no longer serves us. To evolve means to shed off and leave behind, never to return to the aforementioned way of being.
Evolution is not just an outfit change, or a change of regime.
It’s a change in consciousness, over time. Because a better way has come along.
We are in the midst of evolution.
Evolving is making the choice to release the masculine “fight-first” instinct so often confused for righteousness, while our peace instinct is confused for weakness and wishful thinking.
The idea of evolution strikes terror at the core of many whose identities have been forged under the “king of the mountain” masculine. Within this framework, there is a winner and a loser, and the outcome is instantaneous depending on which ram has butt its head against the other with the greatest force.
Evolution takes time. And it selects the best option for survival. Not the most ego-driven option. If an organism no longer serves the whole, it’s usefulness in nature has come to an impasse.
Many fear the impasse at this time.
All organisms experiencing the cycle of evolution will experience loss. There will be certain “ways of life” that die off. There will be outmoded mentalities that fall by the wayside as no longer useful.
That which no longer serves the whole will not propagate forward.
And those who are dedicated to old modalities that do not serve the whole are deeply aware of this impending death.
The fear that we are witnessing at this time in our nation, and our world, is not political. It’s not moral. It’s not theological or sociological. It is greater than that, carried deeply in the survival instincts buried within our DNA.
For those who are terrified that this change upon the world is too much for them to bear — it is the fear of extinction.
The evolution of the human species is here. It’s fulcrum of change is love. It will not be stopped. It cannot be stopped, for it is fueled by the cause-and-effect inertia as ancient as the turning of the earth.
This evolution will not be voted away. It will not be locked behind bars or silenced through governmental gridlock or suppressed through bullying or subjugation.
It is the inevitable next step in life cycles of those organisms that wish to live.
This evolution starts with us, giving away our blame, and our pettiness, and our “this person did such-and-such to me so I’m going to stay angry and oppress others because it’s my right” entitlements.
This evolution starts with humility, in respecting a difference in acknowledging wrongs that have been committed while addressing how to right those wrongs — and simply using those wrongs as an excuse to stay angry because that’s the reason we give ourselves permission to be more visible.
This evolution starts with our understanding of our own anger. Anger is healthy when experienced as a means to motivate a person toward making positive changes in the end. Staying in anger, without taking action to use anger as a tool in self healing — is simply self-absorption. And, self destructive.
There is no evolving if one is halting one’s own forward progress with being mired in anger for anger’s sake.
This evolution starts with understanding our own participation with our social programming. We believe the rules set forward beneath the masculine time frame stating that anger equals our own power.
We continue to participate in fear cycles because it’s too humbling to admit that maybe, just maybe — it felt good to be that petty. Perhaps, for once, our pain had a voice. For once, we were heard in a society that goes deaf to inner human need yet responds mostly to external stimulus.
We’re trained through this “social programming” to serve not our families, ourselves, our communities, or our Higher Power or Higher Self — but to be good consumers.
Money is God under this format. Power is God.
We cannot relate with this programming at the core of who we are as a spiritual species. So we over-eat, we over-indulge, we over-spend, working hard to receive favor from this unreachable god that makes no sense. We worship the machine as a cog in its financial wheel, hoping that will bring us favor if we produce offerings of new shoes and new cars.
We give our bodies to toxins and we give our minds to trash.
Because it’s just not working anymore.
Evolution is accepting that which no longer works. For a connected planet — that puts fear on the chopping block.
Fear is the Poison. Not the Republicans. Not Democrats. Not Hillary, not Trump. Not the Gays, not the Christians, or any other face we project our deepest feeling of extinction upon.
Fear is the poison alone.
Our addiction to fear in the USA represents itself through racism and blame, victimizing and bullying, marginalizing and gossiping, and politics — because as well-trained consumers, we are taught that our identity is external.
As such, we love to rail on about how we are victims. And we get angry and enforce our victim stance when someone brings forward an opportunity to grow past the illusion of being “held down by the man.”
We then pass up our opportunity for growth by making our hardships into our identities.
As good consumers, we must have an identity.
In our inevitable evolution, we recognize that we are our own limitation.
Evolution means evaluating our strengths — that which is working. If we stop giving power to ideals and to people who do not represent our current consciousness, they cannot lead.
Let us stop blaming “those people” for the restrictions in our lives. Much of the current mentality in the USA regarding power is reminiscent of the Neegan character on The Walking Dead. One evil sociopath with a baseball bat has everyone brainwashed that he is all powerful. Yet the thousands that follow him could simply not do his bidding — and render he and his bat powerless.
Evolution means balance. Today, if a credo went across the USA that all guns would be revoked, all food would be monitored, and all women’s health care rights were suspended — no one would adhere to these extreme laws. These laws would be unenforceable as most farmers would not comply, most medical providers would not comply, and those who would be sent to enforce these constitution-bending laws — just couldn’t do it.
Evolution means not fearing cause and effect. There is a level of ridiculousness that triggers people to simply disengage from the system. We forget in our brainwashing that our “great powers that be” in the USA — the “power” that so many fear — is completely dependent upon our willing cooperation.
We do hold the power when we own our awareness.
In being aware, there may be fear. There may be pain. Yet you will no longer be numb to what is occurring, nor a fearful victim. You will recognize the design of being human — that our greatest power is not in aggression through our numbers — but in Unified Action.
The Powers That Be are aware of the impact of our unified action. Which is why they have worked so hard to keep us all divided. That way, we fall into place like dutiful consumer soldiers.
Yet that era is passed.
It’s the time of Evolution. Not Revolution. Change is upon us. Beautiful, positive, terrifying change.There’s no going back. We evolve, or we die. At this point, our extinction as a culture, a nation, and a world —
— is our choice.
