Dear Courageous Spiritual Champions,
In Gary Zukav’s book, ‘The Heart of the Soul’ the most important thing was, “The need to feel safe, valuable, and loved is at the core of human experience. It is a need that is as deep as the need for food and shelter. This need has created hunting, agriculture, and shelter. It has created science, transportation and communication technologies, furniture, and every object that is not found in nature. It is a need that has propelled us to observe carefully what lies around us and to use it effectively. Since the origin of the human species, the need to feel safe, valuable, and loved has focused our attention outward toward what is external. We are so used to reaching outward to satisfy that need that we scarcely notice it. It has become natural, and, for millennium, it has worked.”
We are at the precipice of a new creation story that is unfolding within and without! We are in the liminal (the doorway) of two worlds—the new consciousness and the old consciousness. Never before have humans experienced this. As children, fences have limited the experiences of our childhood. We are now encountering a new world beyond the limits of being fenced in! It encounters its impact upon the world beyond the fence and the impact of this larger world upon it. Up until now our limited self and just using five senses have been our fence!
Spiritual growth is now eclipsing survival as the focus of our human experience. It’s so popular and becoming so much more attractive because it is aligning with our Soul’s plan not only for survival and but for evolution. And, as Michael Meade wrote, “In making more Soul in this world, we strengthen the connection to the Soul of the World and help sustain the bridge between the worlds. For the Soul has its own inner light and each Soul is secretly connected to the song of the earth, to the Soul of the World, and to the indelible spark of life and light that can only be found in the darkest hours and the darkest times.”
Growth by looking inwards instead of reaching outward is the newer and deeper understanding of why we are here and how we serve. Instead of trying to control external circumstances for us to feel better we are evolving by going within, digging deeper to discover our wounds to find the roots of our insecurities and heal them. As Zukav wrote in his book, “Getting a new wife or husband, a larger home, or a better car are all ways of pursuing external power—attempting to make yourself feel more whole and secure by manipulating and controlling the external world. So is every use of intelligence, beauty, wealth, education, muscles, and the latest hair style. Every attempt to acquire external power now produces only violence and destruction. The pursuit of external power produces physical violence and destruction between nations. You can see this in every newscast.”
Which brings us to Now and our present day. As a society, for those who have evolved, we can no longer depend on looking outward for the safety and security that we all longed for to survive. However, our minds still have that channel on default! As our Souls ascend, our satisfaction now comes through developing and aligning with our Internal (Authentic) Power. Shifting from external power towards aligning with our authentic power requires us to become heart-centered. It requires all of us to have compassion, to feel the pain and joy of others, as well as making their concerns our own. Faster technology, going into outer space and having bigger, better cars and aircraft won’t make us more heart-centered nor compassionate.
Just to be clear, AUTHENTIC POWER is the alignment of our personalities with our soul. The most essential part of creating authentic power is our INTENTION. Moreover, without LOVE we cannot create it! Developing this part of us requires a lifetime of focus and awareness. It requires us to be aware of what we are aware of in each moment! Moreover, until we are able to align with this we will experience some of the most undesirable parts of ourselves—the parts that blame, criticize, judge, resent, envy, and hate ourselves and the world at large. It isn’t a walk in the park! However, these are the parts that must be uncovered and changed and loved so we don’t keep projecting our wounds and insecurities onto others.
This is what we have come here to do. To have our Souls reveal themselves as us!
This is the doorway to the spiritual path. Those parts of ourselves that are loving and compassionate are already aligned and when we cultivate them we align our personality with our soul! It is up to us which doorway we choose! One door opens to the experience of acting with love. The other opens to aligning with fear. Our choices determine whether we will learn through Love and Trust or Fear and Doubt!
Be who you truly are. It will light the way for you. All of this is available only in the present moment. Our minds are only going to limit us. Moreover, by staying in your hearts and by being your beautiful selves you are making it easier for all of us to ascend and be lifted up. Remember to keep thanking yourself for being a catalyst and container for peace, love and beauty. Each of you is part of the whole and so needed.
We have much more to do. Let’s do it together! Let us do it in wisdom, with love and compassion. Let us make this the human experience. Creating authentic power is learning to distinguish love from fear. To embrace the frightened parts of ourselves and choose love no matter what. This requires much awareness and blissipline/discipline!
Thank you for being a catalyst and container for peace, love and beauty. Each of you is part of the whole and so needed. I believe that is one of the reasons we are always looking up at the stars. They are reminding us that we are the dreamers! We are tied to the stars. The word Destiny comes from the Latin word ‘destinare’ to make firm, establish. The sense is of “that which has been firmly established,” as by fate. Especially “what is to befall any person or thing in the future” from the stars! We humans are all playing our part in the unfolding of this incredible, awesome universe. As Archangel Michael decrees, “Beloveds, shine your light for all to see. Call on us, and we will assist you in every way! You are Loved.”
Have a gorgeous week. I couldn’t do this without you and without all the wonderful teachers, authors, mentors and guides. Thank you Gary Zukav for sharing what authentic power is and all your wisdom for helping us to walk this golden path back home with more courage, resilience and love.
