"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of Love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, humanity will have discovered fire." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
A Spiritual Perspective
As we move into alignment with the Galactic Core, which is exact on 21 December 2012, our galaxy has the opportunity to shine new light throughout the cosmos. Thriving opens hearts and expands minds; and trusting the God within enables us to experience worlds even more magnificent than those of our wildest imaginings.
Eons ago cave dwellers discovered fire and it transformed their lives. Now as planet Earth moves towards the galactic core each one of us has the potential to open the portal to ultra-consciousness. With individual consciousness awakened and the kundalini fire harnessed, the opportunity awaits for us to discover who we are, where we are from, and where we are going. This is the time for a great leap in evolution.
Research reveals that Mother Earth ‘regularly’ cleanses herself of the toxicity that humans have perpetrated upon her and She needs to purify Herself. This could be interpreted as destructive by some - however She is not against us, She is just doing what is necessary for Her own continuing evolution.
It Has Begun
We now find ourselves beyond the point of no return with the calamitous circumstances that have led to climate, environmental, work and economic changes. The current global situation heralds a new beginning and our options are between merely surviving and magnificently thriving. You know all the challenges - Massive unemployment and retrenchments. Poverty. Property foreclosures. Shortages of numerous kinds. Food prices going vertical. Greater violence and theft. Refugees and relocations due to earth changes, environmental factors, tyranny and wars. Global coastal phenomena. Economic crises bringing a swift restructuring of global monetary systems and commerce. Impacts of human population of 680,000,000,000, estimated cattle population of 2,000,000,000. Magnetic changes and continuing pole shifts. Political uncertainty. Health-care crises. Viruses. Pollution and on and on.
History is History - Life as we Know It is Ending
Sounds grim – however we can choose to view these next years as either apocalyptic or as the birth pangs to an unimaginably glorious new consciousness and creation of a New Earth. Indeed, the period from now until 2025 is probably very much like the pain of childbirth and most mothers know the intense pain is quickly forgotten by the untold joys of New Life. If we choose joy and focus on thriving, in spite of the challenging issues around us, life will radiate through us in exquisite and myriad ways. We'd do well to focus upon purposeful attitudinal shifts and spiritual changes along with preparedness for our physical needs and for those dependent upon us.
Thriving is a Decision while these Massive Changes Continue
With suggestions such as these, we may create a future world from a spiritual perspective that will lead to growth and thriving rather than fear, depression and eventual hopeless collapse all-round. Trusting the God within is more powerful than adhering to the personality that often leans towards fear and scarcity, despair and smallness.
We can, of course, choose to just survive rather than thrive thus keeping us in the status quo of a diminished brilliance. The God within is not contained by any religion or dogma and is accessible by All. 'And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell, and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.' - Black Elk, Black Elk Speaks.
