A Better Way

I have realized today that I have approached the way things are going in the country the wrong way.  No; that's not quite right.  I have every right to be angry about it all; all the lower-consciousness stuff going on, and in particular, all the cheating and stealing that, it is turning out, was rampant in the just-past elections for office, in MY country.1  It is my reaction to it, that has some fault.  If that's all I do about it - stew in my own negativity about it - I am at fault as well.  Am not providing a way out of the action-reaction vicious circle.

I have now seen a way out.

It came to me in my reading - during my mid-day reading time, that I give myself often before moving on to other things (usually my computer; or, often, a nap, that I find myself needing more these days) - when I came across some interesting - and somewhat synchronous - material, and ideas, from two books that I just 'happened' to pick out, for today's 'lesson'.  Sometimes it's relatively lighter reading that I am drawn to at that moment in time; but this time I found myself drawn to two books in particular, of a rather 'heavier' nature, in my small but substantial library.  The first that I delved back into (I read sporadically in my collection of reading material - consisting of both books and magazines - depending on my mood) was a book titled 'Who Am I?  Why Am I Here?' by a very committed and inspiring Lightworker named Patricia Diane Cota-Robles;2 and the second was titled 'Your Life After Death', one of a series that is called The Joseph Communications, by Michael G. Reccia, 'with thanks to' a small pod of question-posers for Michael's channeling from an entity known simply as 'Joseph'.  

In the first book, in picking up where I had left off days and days ago, I immediately read such observations/good advice as about not feeding the old:  "Whatever we focus our thoughts, words, actions, and feelings on, we bring into form.  We need to create the vision of what we want life on Earth to be like, and then we need to set about creating that new reality."

Good point: Focus on what you want, not on what you don't want…That short paragraph was preceded by a longer one that was also very germane to my current 'situation'/feelings vis-à-vis 'the government':

"Instead of polarizing against our government, for instance, we can invoke the I AM Presences of the people who hold public office and ask them to take command of their thoughts, feelings, words, and actions.  Then we can visualize the public officials striving for the highest good for all Humanity.  When greed, selfishness, and the gross imbalances in the distribution of wealth are brought to our attention, we can invoke the I AM Presences of the people involved in these activities as well.  We can envision their I AM Presences taking command of their hearts and minds, and we can visualize their responding with integrity, generosity, and a willingness to assist those who are less fortunate than themselves…"

And before that one, another very pertinent paragraph to my 'quest':

"What affects one part of Life affects all Life.  In other words, as I AM lifted in consciousness ALL Life is lifted up with me.  Instead of polarizing against everything we disagree with, we need to create a new reality, a reality that reflects our Oneness and makes the concept of separation obsolete.  (My emphasis)

And so forth in this vein.  (It is from the last chapter of her book, in a section of it titled 
'Healing the Polarization'.  How fitting…)

I mulled it all over, appreciating her insights, and the timing of it in my life; and then I turned to the second book; in which, again in picking up where I had left off (also many days, if not weeks, ago), I immediately came across such gems as:

"What the soul on Earth views to be true within itself it activates via the God within to produce form and, unfortunately, potential can be negative as well as positive on the earth plane.  You are a being of infinite, limitless potential and you create right now (just as much as those more evolved souls create) because you go within daily to see what you believe to be true and then bring it out into form around you.  If souls on Earth understood and acknowledged it and operated under its dictates the world would change now because the choices that souls on Earth would make would be choices for peace, for good, for health and for spiritual evolution.

"So, you must consider that in examining the greater spheres…you will have to come to terms with the fact that you are limitless potential and that you create and bring forth whatever you believe to be true." (Emphases & punctuation in the original)   

So: the old adage, that 'you create your own reality' - but with the added awareness of the role of 'potentials': Don't feed/give in to the negative, because you will thereby just assist in the bringing of it "out into form around you".   All good stuff.  All very timely for me, as I consider in particular all these reports of massive voter fraud in this election just past.

Lying, stealing, cheating - nasty stuff; but if I simply get weighed down with that sort of thing, that sort of energy, that sort of consciousness, I offer nothing to replace it with.  I would like to tell those involved in cheating and such - and if someone came up to me intending to cause me harm, say - something to deflect the energy towards a positive outcome.  Towards the potential of such an outcome; humans having free will and all.

So therefore, there is something I have figured out that I can do.  If I ever come across something negative like that going on in my path, I'll say to the person exhibiting that lower-consciousness sort of behavior: 

'I wouldn't do that if I were you.  And I am you  And you are me.  And we are all One Another.  And beneath the illusion of separation, We Are One.  So let's start acting like it.' 

And let's see what sort of world we - together; as One - can come up with.



1 I indeed have a very proprietary feeling about America.  Some say that the Illuminati were behind its creation, what with the Masonic connections of some of the Founding Fathers, and the symbols on the one dollar bill, and the layout of Washington, D.C. and all.  May be.  But there are Masons, and then there are Masons.  (Washington, e.g., though a Mason, warned about the Jacobin influence from the Continent.  Which had a role in the French Revolution, and was of a decidedly different character from the American one; which emphasized the individual over the state.)
     Don't be put off by surface impressions.  America has served as s link to the higher heavens by its emphasis on the principles of liberty, self-governance, self-reliance, and personal responsibility.  Those are its key features.  Don't lose contact with them.  They are your link to your future, on an ascended plane of existence.
     Just for the record, Barry:
     Socialism - or whatever statist variation thereof - is not the way of the future.  It's part of the process of getting to the way of the future.  The same as capitalism.
     The way of the future is by way of Love.  Not Force.  

2 whose seminar, titled the 26th Annual World Congress on Illumination (subtitled 'Birthing A Renaissance of Divine Love'), I attended this past August on the isle of Kauai in the state of Hawaii.  A good time was had by all, including me. (I wasn't 'illumined'; but I was inspired.)
