The Suffering We’re Seeing

Currently in this country, while government officials fight back and forth, while political pundits scream at each other, while Americans yell obscenities at one another across the Internet, social media and in each others presence, we see the suffering again which so many of us have seen before.  The treatment of those different from us, the treatment of those who seek our help, the treatment of those we see as “not us” is happening again, as it has before in the Earth.  This is a very real battle, but not of guns, swords and other weapons – rather a battle of what level of character and consciousness we will choose to determine how we treat one another.

It can be called government policy.  Government policy has done this throughout human history.  But, look deeper into the consciousness of each soul that lives in the Earth.  This isn’t just a “policy” of immigration, although this time it is manifesting as that issue in the current news. There is another perspective which this demonstrates.

It is many things manifesting at once.  Although it would be vehemently denied on the surface, it is ALSO a demonstration of an attitude of inequality – us vs them – and “Inferiority of ‘them’ vs the Superiority of ‘us’ “, which many still hold in their souls in the same way that we’ve witnessed in our world today and in our remembered and unremembered history.”

A Part of History Forgotten

From the beginning of souls entrance into this world, there have been some souls who were known as or perceived as angels or higher spiritual beings – who entered into the human path in the Earth – entering both before and during when other species of humans were present. They were not necessarily all Angels of Light which we think of today. Some of these spirits choosing a darker, lower-vibration, non-Love based path, held onto their “awareness of their own higher nature” even though they were on paths of losing the higher connection. Still, as human beings, this awareness of having been at the angel level of consciousness, became unconscious within them as they trapped themselves (like so many of us) through the human reincarnation process.

This unconscious perception became a belief that something innate to themselves makes them greater than others.  With the attitude of superiority still within them, and held onto, they consider themselves better or greater than other souls in the Earth. This attitude can be seen throughout many, many different cultures and many, many historical societies in the evolution of mankind.  I want to add that this quality is not present within them alone, but can be found within all of us to some greater or lesser extent – per our own choosing.

Because the battle of Light and Darkness began before the Earth existed, and continues now during the continued creation of the Physical Universe, this battle has been carried into the realm of the Earth. While the battle between the Light and Darkness has before been a battle among different spirits, we now have a process of reincarnation and karma within the Earth realm, which lawfully structures the evolutionary process of souls and spirits in the Earth.

These principles and laws bring in place the requirements that each soul and spirit must now face our own selves within our own consciousnesses in order to resolve the imbalances which heretofore had shown themselves externally, and which are now to be dealt with internally. We brought into this plane our imbalances and shortcomings (which we had before we entered) that we manifested in the physical Earth realm, and now we must heal these within the physical Earth realm – including by learning the development of the awareness of Oneness with all life, and the equality of all life – instead of the previous belief and manifestation of superiority/inferiority attitudes and actions.

We are at a point in the evolution of consciousness within the Earth whereby this battle is coming to the surface of awareness (although not known under the spiritual terms and conditions I mention here – which generally people would laugh at if they heard it called this).  Because of choices made to serve self alone, which is one cause of the consciousness of darkness, some souls have little within their own character to hinder their effort to mislead themselves and others.  (Some of us have willingly been walking the difficult road, indeed, back to balanced equality and truth.)  Therefore, they foster fear and paranoia beyond what is truthful. Other souls already have been misled to believe that which would be different than what they would otherwise learn from within their own hearts. These are misled to believe that Love would not be the path to take, but rather fear being the path to take.

Continued after the Side Notes …

************************************

Side Note: these examples in the previous paragraph are also examples of the imbalances yet to be worked out within a person’s own consciousness/soul. Within our own character, we potentially have the desire to hinder the truth due to our own fears and agendas. Within our own character, we potentially have the attitudes of our self being “a better person than that other person”. Within our own character, we potentially have the inclination to not listen to our hearts – the seat of our connection to God, and to not listen to the call of Love which comes from our connection to God.
Side Note: The state of consciousness of fear and paranoia exists in the 3rd Chakra. This is the Chakra of adrenaline and conflict – fight or flight – war – battle – overpowering others – oppressing others – exalting ourselves over others and the like. We can demonstrate the 3rd Chakra states of consciousness blindly or “asleep at the wheel” or instead we can seek to wake up, and to open our eyes, which leads us to learn and gain an understanding on our way to transformation with the 4th Chakra – seeking the lesson of awareness which is teaching us understanding that this is what it is like for human beings – the horror and torment – for humans to struggle within the 3rd Chakra – constant fear (as well as learn other awareness lessons related to the 3rd Chakra.) In this insight leading to transformation, thus we step out of the 3rd Chakra consciousness, work on patience, understanding and compassion, and even feeling long-suffering for those stuck in the 3rd Chakra, and recognize the statement Christ gave us when He said, “Perfect Love casteth out fear.” 1 John 4:18. This statement of Christ’s also shows the path of transformation out of the 3rd Chakra into the 4th.

To Continue…

Now, although we are still participating in the battle between the Light and the Dark, we are able to face these battles, not against other people, but within our own selves – within our own consciousnesses, our own attitudes and our own character. It is in this work – on ourselves within ourselves – where we are able to win the victory over our own darkness. And as we do this – change our own character from letting go of acts of darkness to acts of the Light – that the presence of God comes into our physical realm at ever greater levels of influence and healing at every level of the physical realm. It is this ever greater presence of God which brings the higher levels of Light, raising vibrations of all physical realms, including the Earth, and bringing about guidance and insight into steps we can take or make available to bring transformation into our societies, organizations, governments, and the healing and balance of ever more souls who seek healing and balance.

It is ever the process of choosing to open to greater Light within ourselves which helps to eliminate the darkness around us. To manifest this Light then comes the challenges to manifesting of the qualities which the Light has within it – compassion to those who need it and those who have none – understanding to those who ask for it and to those who throw it away – courage to listen to the wisdom and guidance coming from God who lives in our hearts, the 4th Chakra – humility to recognize that God is within every life equally and available to every life equally, and that our own paradigm is always changing, always evolving, and always creating room for more learning and more love – willingness to pray and meditate for the presence of God to increase in this Earth and all physical realms – patience for things which do not come to us on our own personal time table serving our self rather than God’s timetable serving all of us in possibly different ways – letting go of judging others by realizing that we’re also letting go of judging our past selves and possibly our future selves – mercy for those who suffer and are tormented from living in fear like we all have done, as well – and forgiveness for those who ask for it, for those who need it, and for those who reject it – with all 3 of these being our self, as well as others.

We live in a world where love exists and can exist more.  As with the Spirit that is God Consciousness – Love exists when we choose to love. This means that God is only brought forth when we bring forth Love. God is only manifest when we manifest Love. While watching the suffering happening, we are not helpless if we ask God to be within our hearts in order to direct our actions which we can manifest in our world – for the purpose of demonstrating actions based on Love instead of fear.

Love Is It

Every individual struggles to live life as best as possible, even with all the hurdles we place in front of ourselves, and the stumbling blocks we cling to. Yes, our lives are filled with difficulties, pain, suffering and the like. Even when we have wonderful things to potentially make life easier, bring joy and be less painful, and bring happiness and have less suffering, our lives are not free from any aspect of life. We simply have a different kind of pain and suffering in our life.  Some of it is easily seen, and some of it is hidden to everyone except ourselves.

No individual’s life is strictly either black or white. No life is strictly either pain or joy. No individual, no soul is strictly either good or bad. Consequently, no experience is strictly only good or bad, black or white, pain or joy.

In our world, we know suffering exists and many of us try to help there be less of it. In our world, we know that understanding God more can help there be less of it. Yet, again and again we run into the wall of the differences between our efforts and our results. Over and over we seek ways to offer others insights or learning which we have with the hope of reducing suffering and with the hope of increasing understanding and compassion in our societies and the hearts and minds of people.

It is so common to get very discouraged and saddened when we believe that we’ve been ineffective and unsuccessful. If we hold to this belief – that we’ve been ineffective and unsuccessful – or that we haven’t even been able to change ourselves or enhance God’s presence in our own lives, then we can also become depressed or despairing – feeling that we get nowhere with our efforts at changing another’s consciousnesses.

****

But, if we open our minds just a little bit more, we’ll be able to see something different happening. If we can see that our effort at changing our self is the superior path – the path that brings us to greater awareness of our world through the greater awareness of our self, we can begin to see that, of course, we’re going to get depressed about our ability to change somebody else. Of course, we despair when we think we’re here to put love into someone else’s heart.

There’s a paradox here.  These tasks are not realistic tasks for us. These tasks are not the tasks set before us by God.  These tasks are not why we’re here. We’re not here to bring salvation to someone else. We’re not here to bring enlightenment to someone else. We’re not here to bring about someone else’s greater learning.

We’re here to demonstrate something special.  We’re here to seek salvation within. We’re here to seek enlightenment within. We’re here to come to know our own self as uniting with God within. We’re here to seek our own greater learning within.  We can do this by loving God above all and loving our neighbor as our self, and demonstrating all of the above.  What we learn from this is a very simple realization.

Each time we love or express love in some way, each time we feel love in our hearts and demonstrate it, we are in a very real way, bringing God’s consciousness, energy, and vibration into this plane in order to affect this plane – like a tuning fork, to raise the vibration of all things. Each time we love, regardless of who or what receives, we are opening to allow God to have a greater presence in the world. Each time we love, the love energy extends and strengthens the connection we have, and increases our awareness of the Oneness of all life. Each time we love, the world, the planet, the environment we’re in changes. Each time we love, we change.

This means the way to healing is to love in a greater capacity than the way of illness. This means the path of illness, dis-ease, darkness or whatever we call it and this path’s strong inertial pull, can be changed by choosing to love and sending this love out.

While the path of love is not an easy path to walk, it certainly offers more than the path of trying to change others instead of ourselves. It offers more than the path of thinking that we’ve failed because the world is still “crazy” even after all those meditations and talks we’ve done. It offers more than the path of trying to figure out what what we’re supposed to be doing to make ourselves “spiritual.”  It offers more than the path of believing that spirituality is what we do rather than what are.

The path of loving is the path that can offer the strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and taking life one day at a time.  The path of loving is a path of demonstration of all that has been said in this article.  Every time we love, we bring God in all God’s Infinite Consciousness into the present moment into this space that we’re in. Every time we love, we demonstrate love to someone who may have forgotten it.  There is no greater spiritual act that any of us can enact than to love. There is no greater spiritual purpose to which we can attain. There is no greater spiritual path that we can progress upon.

Love is it.

Now, a few questions:
If any of us died right now, would the people in our lives have known for certain that we loved them?  or would they think something else?  If anyone we knew died, right now, would they die knowing that we loved them?  or would they die thinking something else?

What is the harm of demonstrating to someone else that we love them?  What is the harm of expressing to all life that we love all life?
What is the harm of showing God that we love God?
