Evolution: What It Is Not vs. What It Can Be

A lot of people have very unique images in their minds about what this world will look like “after the evolutionary time” passes. I have some abrupt news for some people. This evolutionary path is not going to manifest as “a wonderful world where everything goes the way we want”. It’s not going to manifest as everyone knowing how to cooperate and get along. It’s not going to manifest as a dream world. Take a look around and realize that we have been on an evolutionary path since the beginning of time, and an Earth-based/human/spiritual evolutionary path since Adam and Eve. Now is a unique time for this process, but there has never been a time when evolution has not been or will not be happening.

Evolution – namely our spiritual evolution will manifest from within our hearts. What we put forth from our hearts is what will come into the world – not one or the other, but rather BOTH – the beautiful and the ugly, what we’re conscious of and what is hidden in our subconscious, all that is good and all that is bad – within our self. This is what will then manifest as our social evolution in the Outer World.

The evolution is activated by how we respond to the world events, both large and small, both global events and individual life events. Evolution begins with what is in our hearts and minds. So, don’t look for it only and simply to independently manifest in the outer world around us – the arena and circumstances of our day to day life. It will grow from our own responses to these outer world circumstances of our day to day life. Our outer world always comes from our inner world and not the other way around.

How we respond (to the outer world,) is the source of what we create within us. It is this consciousness and energy within us, which is that which is evolving. This consciousness will eventually bring about the different life that we seek for ourselves and in turn, what we then contribute to the community of which we are a part.

 

The Decade of the Heart and Mind

Artist-Mark Lewis Wagner

Artist: Mark Lewis Wagner

In the next 6-7 years in particular, we will be faced with many challenges to let go of things we thought were established reliable ways of thinking, acting and living and choosing for our lives. We will have to let go of thinking that we know what we’re doing, and let go of thinking we have a good head on our shoulders. We will be called to learn things that we don’t even know are things we didn’t know. We are being put in situations where we either change how we do things, or think things, or else we could bring suffering of many different kinds or even death into people’s lives. We can see that happening already.

Don’t look to the outside world – any outside-ourselves person or thing – to be the source of any evolution or “saving us” from the next 6-7 years. All evolution and “saving” comes from within us in our choices and responses – when we respond from kindness, love, patience, forgiveness, etc.

We use this guidance to make better choices and/or to manifest more heart-centered responses. We will be helped to see that we do not have the wherewithal to evolve ourselves. We will be helped to learn that all of us are called to let go of that which is holding us back, individually.  And of course, some of us will say “NO” to this evolution and these changes, because freewill will not be taken away from anyone.

If we are willing to evolve, then the evolution will come about, and our responses – either unselfish-centered or selfish-centered, either “my way” or “Infinite Love’s way”, either “what I think should be how people and life should be” or “how God creates the world from the heart outwardly” – our individual responses are what will fuel the evolution of our “self towards our higher self” individually.

Act (Love) Locally – Family, Friends, “Your Neighbor”

Yes, there are people who are willing to respond and help us in our day-to-day lives, but we are called to help others, as well. Not just “help” in the ways we think, but in new ways that we’ve never considered, which we will not even know until the moment that we decide to help. We are needing healing, and we are the ones to help bring healing – the Wounded Healers.

Willingness is everything to this evolutionary process. When we are willing, all things in life then happen in ways that will “help us to evolve”. When we are unwilling, all things in life then happen in ways that will diminish our efforts to prevent evolution. What this means is that God is all about evolution of our awareness of our being spirits who are the Children of the One Infinite Consciousness – God. God is committed to this evolution for all souls, or rather evolution for all life.

Artist: Mark Lewis Wagner

Artist: Mark Lewis Wagner

Be aware of: don’t look for the capacity to control evolutionary processes in the outer world. Our only control is our willingness and decision of when to go within to reconnect with Infinite Life that exists within our hearts and minds. The only control we have is when to turn within, and if need be, cry out to God for help, or say quite accurately, “Thank you God for your presence in my life, for your kindness and deep love, and for the support and help you extend to me every moment of every second, of every minute of every day.”

The Greatest of Challenges and the Calling to Love

Finally, the greatest of challenges has been given to us, (alongside remembering “with God, all things are possible.”) As Christ said, we are called to love our enemies, pray for those who hurt us, forgive those who spite us. This includes the call regarding the following — if we don’t change how we respond to people who we tend to think of as “everyday enemies”, those who severely irritate and make us angry, online, on social media, in our own family, in the political scene, etc, and etc, then we are not doing the work we’re here to do. One of the hardest lessons waiting for us to grasp is that the qualities we see in others are also the qualities within ourselves, otherwise we wouldn’t see them. Even seeing others DENIAL of this truth – is one of our own lessons about ourselves. Hence, why one of the most important prayers we can give forth is, “Lord, help me be honest with myself!”

If we don’t change ourselves, then our world, which reflects our inner selves, will not change in any way.  We do the work. We are the water that yet is to be changed into the wine. If we don’t pour ourselves forth from the source of kindness, compassion, patience, understanding, forgiveness, long-suffering and more, then our world will not evolve.

We start with only ourselves, individually. If we are not willing to heal/change our own hearts, minds and souls, then we can never expect to be successful at healing/changing the world. The outer world appearance and circumstances are simply a reflection of the inner world within each of us.

As the Course in Miracle says, “All we need to do is be willing and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.” This is why, “With God, all things are possible.” This is why this calling is possible. This is why it is possible for us to change our hearts within ourselves.

God bless all of you, and may God bless everyone’s effort put forth to demonstrate the best that exists within our hearts, minds and souls.

Changes to “The Sum of Ourselves” 24-hour retreat

My apologies to everyone.  Because of a mistake in how I worded the retreat’s registration and my not listing a registration deadline, I’m faced with moving the retreat to May 4 – 5, 2019 in order to set up a new registration deadline giving everyone more information and time.

This is official.  The April 6-7th weekend retreat will not happen.  Instead we will meet May 4-5, 2019.  Everything else stays the same except now the mid-priced Health Services rooms will be available (2 single beds).

My previous registration information was misleading.  I had listed Registration from 2:30-3:30 on  April 6th.  This was actually “Check-in” time and not registration.  Registration and sign-up had a deadline of March 6th, and has since passed without anyone knowing of its existence.

I apologize for this mistake and I hope this will not create problems for anyone interested.

Jodie Senkyrik

Please note the few changes below marked with *****.

*******

We think looking at our past lives is like looking into the distant past. But, our past lives are with us all the time. We lived them. We thought, felt and learned through our own previous times of being a person in the Earth. We walked in our own previous shoes. We spoke our own previous languages.  We sat at our own previous tables.  These past lives are our own, and we can learn from them any time we’re willing by simply scraping underneath the thinnest of surfaces.

 

Welcome to another 24-hour retreat at Camp Capers in Waring, TX, on *****May 4-5, 2019, which you may be interested in.

Topics we’ll discuss

  1. Introduction: The Evolution of the soul through past lives and future lives

  3. Continuity through lifetimes: strong/significant relationships, developed talents, interests etc.
  4. Development of the “Fruits of the Spirit” – Loving kindness, patience, tolerance, more patience, mercy, forgiveness, etc.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in attending, then ….
