Every time we judge and separate a part of ourselves, we create disharmony and shadow, which then emerges in distorted form. Old religion used to repress sexuality, creating many a closet perv, psychological illnesses and disease.
Religion and spirituality, in the lower form, always seem to want to section out something about being human. New age thinking has its own version of this, sectioning out the ego and all that is not "positive". All parts of the self are worthy of love, and when manifesting as "ego", evolve when cared to with love.
Much talk about ego is judgement towards self and others that leads to separation and rules rather than healing. Berating and separating a part of the self is not a good idea. We don't evolve by sectioning parts of self, we evolve by healing, integrating and understanding the parts of us that pull in unhelpful directions. There is always a reason for behavior. And most often what many call ego, is a young self, most often a child self or adolescent self, trying to get its needs met in dysfunctional ways. Find a way to meet the needs of this young self and the behavior evolves.
Love self in all its forms, even the parts that are wounded and that behave with dysfunction. Listen and care for these wounded young parts of the self and you will observe that healing begins to occur naturally, working its way towards balanced expression.
I envision a world in which there are healing centers rather than prisons and psych hospitals. A little further down the line, I envision a world in which nobody is wounded to the point of acting out pain through psychosis and narcissistic/ sociopathic behavior. Where all children are cared for and nurtured, encouraged in their natural blossoming into the natural blueprint of who they are, so that one can use life as a path towards fullness, creativity and abundance of spirit/life force expressing, rather than spending years acting out or healing early wounds.
While it is and has been part of learning and evolving on planet Earth to encounter catalyst for growth, a form of initiation through challenge that many have had Soul contracts to experience during this wrap up at the end of time (as a method for planetary healing, as one can only heal a planet in the free will zone from the inside), I hold the vision that once our work is done, that we no longer need this method of evolution. And that we can explore the second pathway to growth: the path of creation. May we find way to express the infinite light that each of us is conduit for and manifest that light through the transformational pathway of creativity and beauty.
Our planet is a beautiful planet. Filled with luscious nature and flowers and gorgeous animals of all kinds, it is a planet teaming with life. From the macroscopic to the microscopic, every inch of our reality is filled with life. We are not trained to honor this life or to look for the beauty, nor are we trained to create it. Art is often considered a lesser form in education, like a few leaves of salad to garnish the main dish. And even so art is still seen as a product rather than a process. And yet it is the essence of being human to be creative. And the act of creation is inherently healing. Even when used as a way to purge the ugliness of trauma, the art process heals and the results are often turbulently beautiful.
Imagine what our world would look like, just a few generations down the line from now, if healing, love, the creative process and beauty were the cornerstones of our society. Our cities would look very different. Our homes would be playgrounds of expression. The whole world would be a canvas filled with metaphorical gold. I often have visions of this world to be. A world in which the pinnacle of human expression is made manifest, unhindered by the trauma and distortion that has collapsed most of the human Soul.
I have said this many times, but it bares repeating. We have not even scratched the surface of what it means to be human. We have no experience of a humanity without blockages, programming, pain raised in a functional and Spirit centered love based world. We have been manipulated for functioning at 10% capacity for thousands for years, swimming amongst the most toxic energetics. But as the wave of heightened consciousness permeates all, increasingly each day, the artificial blockages to full expression are removed, like a flood of water crashing a dam. And as the water of consciousness flood all, the vision of a new world nears.
Join me in holding a healing vision of beauty for our world. May we radiate our creative essence like stars and shine all colors of the rainbow and more in every aspect of our lives, as we expand into a burst of life force. And may the world be instantly transformed, as it is bathed in streams of colored light and healing sound. And may the new humanity be born.
Much love to you all as we dream the next phase of being human into being
