Are Angels Watching Our World? A Powerful Look Inside The Claims

Published

on

Have you ever wondered if angels really watch over the world? If so, what does this actually mean and what is the true nature of their assistance? It has been said throughout history that non-physical beings act as guides and provide assistance in times of great need. The interpretations of this have varied depending on the source, whether it be from religious scriptures to new age spiritual texts. There are powerful implications to be understood here, so demystifying this subject is a worthy pursuit. I would like to share with you a unique and profound message that may shed some more light and clarity on this topic, for I believe this understanding to be of vital importance at this time. It can really help us to understand the bigger picture in life, where the world is going, what is at stake, and how we fit into the grander scheme of things.

For the past 31 years, a man named Marshall Vian Summers has been receiving communications from the divine in a series of mysterious angelic encounters that started in the deserts of the American Southwest. Summers is a humble and sincere man and his story is fascinating to read. These revelations have grown vaster and vaster in scope and now amount to more than 9000 pages in total. They are profound, challenging, and direct, written in clear English that can be understood by all. These messages are now known as a New Message from God and have been translated into more than 19 languages and are being studied in more than 87 countries around the world. I believe they are very important to consider at this time. They address the most pressing issues that humanity is facing now and in the future: facing the impending Great Waves of change and addressing our open emergence into a competitive universe teeming with intelligent life.

“Spirituality is fundamentally a quest for freedom—freedom from certain things and freedom for certain things. Seen in this way, the picture becomes more complete. For you have a greater destiny in the world, a greater purpose for being here, a purpose that you are not living now, despite your definitions and proclamations. It is to free you from the life that you are living now to prepare you for a greater life in service to the world that represents the core and essence of all spiritual development.” — New Message Wiki, Quotes about Freedom

These Messages have given me the clarity and understanding of the bigger picture that I have been searching for for many years. The practices known as the Steps to Knowledge offer a powerful preparation to cultivate our deeper spiritual mind and potential in an authentic manner. Developing qualities like stillness, discernment, objectivity, compassion, and strength go a long way towards being effective in this world. I pray that you will see the importance and power of the following message and give it due consideration in relation to your life and your greater purpose. I warn you that the Messages may challenge and overwhelm you at first, as they did for me, but I urge you to press onwards and give them a chance. For there is real potency and potential here, along with the promise to transform your life in a genuine way that allows you to truly be of service and fulfill your mission here on Earth. Thank you for letting me share. May the power and presence of Knowledge within you be your guide during the times ahead.

The Assembly

As revealed to God’s Messenger

There is a great Assembly, the Angelic Presence that watches over this world, and has watched over this world for a very long time. How different this is, however, from people’s notions and beliefs, the way that such great Beings have been portrayed in the past in your books on religion and in the testimony of certain people.

God is not managing the world. God is not running the climate. God is not moving the blood through your veins or pouring the waters over the cliffs or germinating the seeds in the ground—for that was all set into motion at the beginning of time.

But God has assigned a Presence to watch over the world through all of its chaotic and tragic encounters and episodes in history—watching for those individuals who show greater promise; bringing things into the world at key turning points in humanity’s evolution and sending one of their own into the world to bring a new teaching and a new understanding to change the awareness of humanity and to alter, if possible, the course of humanity in a positive way.

Those who you honor as the great Messengers, the great Saints, the great Teachers—such as the Jesus, the Buddha and the Mohammad—come from this Assembly, you see. But when they are in the world, they are human beings. What distinguishes them is that they are here on a greater mission with a greater set of responsibilities and a greater accountability to those who sent them. Their lives are trials. Their lives are demanding. It is not a journey for the faint of heart or for those seeking pleasure and repose here on Earth.

The Assembly watches over the world—listening, waiting for those requests that are truly authentic and represent an honest appeal, particularly if they mark a turning point in a person’s life, particularly if they show a greater demonstration of a desire for contact—not borne of ambition, not borne of foolishness or experimentation. It is the signal that someone is ready to begin to awaken. Only Heaven knows what this signal is, what it sounds like, what it means and how it should be regarded.

For you here on Earth, the Assembly is like Heaven—a bridge between this world and your Ancient Home, from which you have come and to which you will return eventually. Everyone in the world, everyone in the universe living in separation in the physical reality, will return to their Ancient Home eventually. But while they are here, they are prisoners to their own intentions. They are prisoners to their cultures and their nations, in a universe where freedom is so very rare. Yet each has been sent here for a greater purpose, a potential, a seed of wisdom, a possibility that, given the right circumstances and given their own honesty and awareness, a greater life can be initiated.

Every world where sentient beings have evolved or have migrated and colonized in the universe, there will be an Assembly there—a great Assembly or a small Assembly, depending on the number of individuals and the nature and conditions of that culture and nation in the universe.

It is a Plan on a scale you cannot even imagine. Your religions cannot account for it. Your theology is far too limited in scope to encompass something of this magnitude. Try as you may to interpret the signs and the symbols of life on Earth, you cannot interpret this. Your intellect was not created to interpret something on this scale.

But within you is the power of Knowledge that God has placed there, a deeper intelligence, a deeper mind. It is this mind that the Assembly is waiting for. For if this deeper mind within you can emerge within the context of your life and circumstances and be accepted and followed and received, you begin a new journey in life. Only in this regard can it be said that you would be born again in the world. Only in this regard would that be true, meaningful and efficacious. Members of the Assembly will attend to certain individuals who are making a greater contribution to the world, but only if the deeper Knowledge within those individuals is sending the message—the message the Assembly is waiting for and looking for among those who live in separation.

God allows you to be in separation. God allows you to suffer. God allows you to make mistakes because that is why you have chosen separation—to have this freedom. But since there is no real alternative to Creation, your existence here is only partially real. It is still connected to Creation, but is a changing, evolving environment—an environment where your life is temporary and greatly challenged and greatly endangered by many things, where error and failure will be the consequence of living without this Knowledge to guide you.

God allows this to happen because you were made to be free. You are even free to try to not be who you really are. You are even that free. But you can never succeed in separation because Knowledge lives within you. It is the part of you that has never left God and still responds to the power and presence of the Lord of Creation and of Creation itself.

Think of your religious teachings in the world—the stories and the vast array of ideas associated with these and consider them in light of what We are saying to you here today. For We are giving you the big picture of your life. See the contrast and you will begin to see that you must embark on a new journey. Your old ideas of religion and spirituality can only serve you to a certain degree. Beyond that, they must be set aside, for only God knows the way to return. Only God knows the meaning of your true existence and the specific purpose that has brought you into the world at this time under these circumstances.

The intellect must bow down eventually. It can only follow when attending a greater reality. This requires humility. This requires surrendering, over time, to the power and the presence that lives within you, that can only respond to your Source.

The Assembly allows everything to happen on Earth. Unless their presence is required and requested with the greatest sincerity, they will not interfere. Only at a great turning point when a New Message is meant to be given to the world, will they provide humanity a new understanding and a greater awareness. This will occur in response to great and potentially devastating change in the world. That is why the great Revelations are only given at certain critical turning points in the evolution of human civilization. They cannot be fabricated. They cannot be invented. They cannot even be imagined, though many people have tried, of course.

It is upon these that the great traditions have been built. But it is also upon these that the great traditions have not been able to follow the spirit of the Revelation that initiated their existence in the beginning. God knows that without Knowledge, people would be in error regarding these things and would make many mistakes along the way. It is the condition of living in separation.

Once you begin to discover the power and presence of Knowledge within yourself, you begin to end the separation within yourself—between your worldly mind and idea of yourself and the greater intelligence that lives within you, an intelligence you had before you came into the world and which you will rediscover once you leave.

This requires a great resonance with life and not merely a complex theology or philosophy. The Angelic Assembly does not respond to those things. But at a great turning point, such as is occurring in the world today, one of their own will come into the world. One of their own will be sent to face the tribulation of being the Messenger—the great difficulty, the great mystery, the great uncertainty, the great Presence that will abide with them as they go through the process of becoming an adult human being, with yet little awareness of their greater destiny and purpose until their calling has been initiated.

No one understands the life of the Messenger, but everyone can receive the gifts of the Messenger, which are gifts that are greater than any person could ever give to the world—gifts far more long lasting, pervasive, powerful and inspiring than any person could ever create or invent. People may have compelling ideas, but nothing that can transform the life of a person in the most natural and beautiful way. That must come from Heaven. It must come through the Assembly that interprets the will of God. For God of the universe is far too great to be preoccupied with this world—the God of countless galaxies, dimensions and Creation beyond the physical manifestation, which is even greater, so great that there is no possibility that you could comprehend its scope and its great inclusion in life.

The Lord of a billion, billion, billion races and more is certainly beyond any theological principle that has ever been created in this world. But it is part of God’s New Revelation, you see, because humanity is emerging into a Greater Community of life in the universe and now must begin to think of God in a greater panorama. For to understand what God is doing in this world, you must understand what God is doing in the universe. For the first time, the Revelation concerning this is being given to a humanity that stands at the threshold of space, to a humanity that stands at the threshold of destroying the environment of the world and driving itself into ruin and catastrophe. It is the greatest threshold humanity has ever faced and the most consequential.

Everything will change and is changing even at this moment. Because of this great turning point, God has sent through the Angelic Presence and Assembly a New Revelation for the world—a Revelation about life in the universe and the work of God everywhere, not based upon a tribe or a region or upon a natural phenomenon or upon the limited history of a group or a nation, but upon the reality of life everywhere.

This greater panorama gives you the greatest opportunity to recognize the power and the presence that lives within you and encourages you to use your intellect to support this realization, for this is what it was created to do, and this is its highest service to you.

You will not know the names of those in the Assembly though they might provide a name at some point for some person to help them to respond. Their names are meaningless, for they are both individuals and they are one—a phenomenon you cannot comprehend with the intellect, which can only think of things of this world.

At the time of great Revelation, the Assembly speaks as one Voice. It speaks through one of its members, but they are all speaking at once, a phenomenon that you cannot really consider. It is too marvelous. It is too phenomenal. It speaks beyond your notions of reality entirely. You can only imagine individuals in the universe, but the Assembly is one and many and one, because they are so close to Heaven, you see, where the many are one, and the one are many.

Your focus in life is not to become enamored with the Assembly or to concentrate on the Assembly, for their purpose is to engage you with the reclamation of Knowledge that lives within you. For you must be the one who chooses. You must be the one who faces the consequences, the difficulties and the blessings of your decisions. You are the one who must choose to receive or to decline the great offering. You are the one who must be responsible for everything that you do. So do not go around telling people that God is guiding you to do this or that, for that is irresponsible. You must say, “I am doing this because I feel it is the thing that must be done.” Claim no other authority, for you do not know for sure.

You cannot know the Assembly or the power of the presence that lives within you unless Knowledge has been activated within you and is beginning to emerge powerfully in your life. Do not create a romance about your angelic experience, whatever it may be, whether it be real or fabricated because it is all about the emergence of Knowledge within you, you see. The Assembly is only concerned with this, for until this happens, you are not reliable. You are not responsible. You are not courageous. You are not authentic. You are still subject to the persuasions of the world and to your own fears and preferences. You are too weak.

That is why you must be elevated within yourself through a process of great transformation that can only be initiated by the Assembly. You cannot initiate yourself. You can meditate for twenty years and not know of the power and the presence of Knowledge. It is your prayer given now with the greatest strength, urgency and authenticity that calls the Assembly to you. You pray not for advantages or merely protection from harm. You pray to be redeemed, not knowing what this means, not trying to understand the redemption, not thinking you know how to purify yourself. Only the Assembly knows this. It is a marvelous thing, you see. It is the greatest miracle of all. It is the miracle that creates every other miracle.

God has now sent a New Message into the world to prepare humanity to face a new world experience and environment and to meet the great challenge of preserving and uniting human civilization. God has sent the great Revelation into the world to prepare humanity for its encounter with life in the universe—the greatest event in human history and the one that poses the greatest challenges, difficulties and opportunities for the human family.

A Messenger is in the world. He has been in preparation for a very long time to receive the Revelation, for it is the largest Revelation that has ever been given to humanity—given now to an educated world, a literate world, a world of global communication, a world of global awareness, to a certain degree. It is the first time in history that a Message has been given to the whole world all at once, for it must reach the world in a short period of time to prepare humanity for the great change that is coming to the world and for the meaning of its encounter with intelligent life in the universe, which is occurring in the world already.

None of God’s previous Revelations can prepare you for these things, for that was not their purpose or their design. They were given to build human awareness, human civilization and human conscience and the ethics that could possibly guide humanity to a greater unity and a greater power in the world. Human civilization has been created and though it is very imperfect, full of corruption, division and error, it nonetheless has great promise. If you knew the conditions of life in the universe around you, you would see this great promise. But you cannot see this yet. You do not have this vantage point. But the Assembly sees this, of course, and that is why great emphasis is being given to this world, to prepare for this great threshold. So much is being given now, through the process of Revelation.

The Messenger faces great difficulties, the same difficulties all the previous Messengers faced—disbelief, antagonism, rejection and ridicule. People cannot see that the greatest event in the world is occurring in their midst. They think it is a violation of their ideas or a challenge to their beliefs. They think it will undermine their wealth, their power and their prestige in the world when in fact it offers the greatest promise of redemption they could ever receive and the greatest preparation for a future that will be unlike the past in so many ways.

The Assembly watches and guides the Messenger, for his importance in the world cannot be underestimated. His importance in the world cannot be overestimated. The Assembly will speak through him to bring the Revelation into the world. They will speak as one because the Message is everything. If this can be recognized by enough people, heeded and followed by enough people, humanity will have the power to turn away from disintegration and endless conflict and war to build a new foundation for the future.

The Revelation has given the vision for this greater world for humanity, but it will be a very different world. It will require great power, courage and honesty to create it and to sustain it in a universe where there are powerful forces and where freedom is rare. Only God knows how this can be done. Only the Assembly understands these things.

Your task now is to learn to receive and to take the Steps to Knowledge so that you may find your true foundation in life, to challenge your ideas, to resolve dilemmas from the past, to forgive yourself and others and to look upon the world without rejection and condemnation, for it is this world that will call forth from you, in time, your greater gifts and your greater role.

There is so much to unlearn here, so much to reconsider. You have to be humble enough to do this. If you think you know the truth, if you think you know God’s will, if you think you know what the universe is, your chances of discovering the truth will be very small.

The Assembly watches over the world. Call to the Assembly—not casually, for they will not hear you. Not to fulfill your ambitions, your dreams or your fantasies, for they will not hear you. You must pray with your heart and your soul. Only then can your voice reach them, for they only know what is true, honest and pure. They cannot be manipulated. They cannot be corrupted. They cannot be influenced. You cannot make a deal with them. You must have the strength to receive their counsel in time and carry it forth without compromise and without corruption. That is how strong you will have to be, to be part of a greater force for good in the world.

People will think, “Oh, this is too much for me to consider. The challenge is too great!” But We say no. It is appropriate for who you are and why you are in the world and who sent you here. You think of yourself in such a demeaning way. You have degraded to a pathetic state when you think like this. You do not know your strength, your power or your purpose, which only Knowledge within you can provide.

The Assembly watches and waits for those who can respond to the Message that God is sending into the world at this moment, for the Messenger is now coming forth to speak, to proclaim and to teach the Revelation. He has been withheld for a long time until the Message was complete. Now it is complete, and the world is in great need of it, greater than you can realize at this moment.

The Messenger represents the Assembly though he is a human being and though he is imperfect, for all human beings are imperfect. He has made mistakes, but all the great Messengers have made mistakes. It is the power of Heaven within him that is his strength, that is his banner, that is his shield. You can destroy his body, but you cannot destroy his Message. And you cannot destroy what he is bringing into the world and the power and the presence that has sent him here, the power and the presence that waits for you to respond. For the gift is now before you, and Heaven watches and waits to see who can receive, who can recognize, who can take the Steps to Knowledge and receive the gift of a greater life in a world that grows darker and more uncertain with each passing day.

Your Life Is Not Limited To One Path

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we often get stuck telling ourselves stories about what the 'best' path in life to take is. It's often based on chasing others' or societies dreams and aspirations, without looking at our own.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we tell ourselves what the 'right choice' or 'wrong choice' is on our own path? What is it based on? Where does our programming come from? Can we not let go of limiting programming? Is our programming our TRUE path?

It is no secret that life can sometimes feel like a limited paved road laid out before us that we feel the need to stick to. Look at how we are brought up. Most of the time we come into the world and begin gaining our perceptions from those closest to us –our parents. As time goes on we find ourselves in school. Throughout that time we also begin watching what others do around us, what we see on TV and in movies.

What is happening is we are observing and creating an idea of how life should be; the best way to play the game. But what is ‘best?’

How many times have we heard “That’s not the best decision” or “That’s not the best decision for the whole family.” When you look at either statement you realize that “best” is subjective. What the “best” is to one person may not be the “best” to another. Even further, both of the perceptions of “best” are created from whatever belief systems each have created in their own lives. This is the key factor to realize.

We Get Trapped in Belief Systems

In either case, both scenarios have one thing in common, a belief system of what the “best” choice or decision is. When we create a belief system like this, we limit how we view things. We no longer feel what is “best,” but instead we analyze and define “best” based on a story; often a story from the past, based on entirely different times than the present moment.

Let’s take the example of a child coming out of high school today.  9 times out of 10, that child will be told, and may even believe, that the “best” decision they can make for their life is to continue their education at university or college. It does not matter that they do not know what they want to study, or that the education system will potentially cost them $100,000+, many will state that is best -and even have pride about it.

Next, they would be told to get a job so they can buy a house, as owning and buying a house is a smart decision. Should this child begin their life based on these belief systems, more often than not they will take this idea of what is “BEST” throughout the rest of their life. They will judge their decisions by this, express emotions based on this, develop self-esteem based on this and so forth. From then on, every decision they make will be based on this belief system handed down and taught to them.

Even getting specific, what to study in school, what type of job to get, what type of car to buy, how to spend and save money, what type of house to buy and so on. What is really happening with all of this? We are defining the ideal life or what’s “best” and then we limit our life to a small scope of how things should be.

The Deep Truth

Here is the absolute truth, ready? None of it has any real truth to it. It’s just all a belief system. Perception, ideas! But we often live by this and it becomes so real in our minds that we become stuck thinking this is the way to do it. Then when depression and anxiety follow, as we may believe we are stuck, we forget to look back on the belief system that is often caging us and our reality into a small tight space we often don’t deeply resonate with.

Look at our world. We often all chase the same thing, the same stuff because that is what we have been sold as the ideal life. Each area of the world has its own version of this. Who’s life are you really living? Whose dreams are you chasing and carrying out? We take on these beliefs and we begin to sacrifice ourselves, our health, and our soul desires so we can carry out someone else’s idea of “best” that we grabbed onto.

Back to the child from the example above. Now they have grown into a young man or woman and are in a job they don’t truly like. But it pays the bills and lives up to the idea of “best” that has been given to them. Most of the time, people around them will all reinforce that their decisions are the “best” because they have all been sold on the same belief system. “You have to make sacrifices, you have to work really hard to have a good life!” is what we are told. But who says what is “good?” Even when that grown up child is expressing their sadness or frustration for the reality they are in, we continue to reinforce it to protect the idea of ‘the best.’

We take this entirely expansive creative individual playing in an expansive playground called Earth and we confine them to this tiny little narrow path of what the “best” is. Instead of spending their life being able to make any choice they choose, they stay limited to what they have been sold as the “best” even if they don’t truly love it.

Even Deeper

Then you have the even deeper part, we then look upon and judge others when they make “the wrong decisions.” Look at how we view those who change their minds about what they want to play with all the time. What do we say about those people? “They need to make up their mind and get their life on track.” What track? There is a track? Says who? “They didn’t make a smart decision with their money or their house so they are going to pay for it later.” Who says some decisions are better than others? Is it not an experience either way?

You are the creator of your life and reality. You can choose to play and create whatever type of life you choose. And guess what? If you make a decision and start creating a particular life then you realize you want to create something new, you are free to do this!

No matter what story we tell ourselves like: “it’s too late, I can’t change this now, it’s too costly” etc. know that these are all egoic illusions. You are never limited to whatever life you have created even if you have been doing it for 30 years. Remember to ask yourself: the life you are chasing, the goals you have set, who’s goals are they really? Where did you first hear of them? Are they from your heart? Or are they what you have been sold?

Look inside yourself at what YOU TRULY want and how you wish to express yourself and create. Start there, and create from that space. You will see very quickly that you can create anything you choose.

Remember, there is no right or wrong path here. It’s about looking back on what we choose, where we are at and saying “Is this where I want to be? Am I feeling peace? Expressing my deepest self? Am I inspired about where I am at?” and if you aren’t, you create a new path and see how that feels. Follow how you FEEL, not what you seek as right or wrong. Our life reflects our state of consciousness.

The Hero’s Adventure: What Movies Can Teach Us About Facing Our Shadow

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Hero's Journey is a multi-staged adventure whereby the 'hero' grows to become a new version of themselves, one that is evolved and at a 'higher level' per se.

  • Reflect On:

    Movies can be viewed in many ways. Some see it as programming others as inspiration. How can we use what we see in movies in our own lives? To grow and evolve as people? To recognize our true callings vs those of Hollywood?

The hero’s adventure is a term popularised by Joseph Campbell based upon his 1949 work “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”. The late Campbell was an American Professor of Literature and a philosopher who described the adventure one must embark upon to fully realise who he/she is.

A simple explanation from Campbell:

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”

Campbell uses the word monomyth to describe this adventure which was taken from James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake.

According to Campbell the monomyth contains 3 stages, with 17 subsections. Not all journeys contain all sections and no two adventures are the same, yet the hero’s adventure follows a surprisingly similar pattern. The 3 stages are 1. A call to seek out some kind of adventure. 2. A trial or initiatory period where the hero must face an obstacle or series of obstacles. 3. The return back home with that which you were seeking to find. This often repeats in a number of ways, with various steps being repeated, but this is the idea.

The 17 Steps Of The Heroes Adventure:

The Call:

advertisement - learn more
  1. The call to adventure
  2. Refusal of the call
  3. Supernatural aid
  4. Crossing the threshold
  5. Belly of the whale

The Initiation:

  1. The road of trials
  2. The meeting with the goddess
  3. Woman as temptress
  4. Atonement with the father
  5. Apotheosis
  6. The ultimate boon

The Return:

  1. Refusal of the return
  2. The magic flight
  3. Rescue from without
  4. The crossing of the return threshold
  5. Master of two worlds
  6. Freedom to live

When you look to Hollywood movies and best selling fiction books they all follow the same pattern. Star Wars writer, George Lucas, was a friend of Joseph Campbell and famously said that without Campbell there would have been no Star Wars.

Star Wars

If you take Star Wars, it is the perfect example of the Hero’s Journey:

The Call: Luke Skywalker is living a mundane existence, and then while cleaning R2D2 he is shown a holographic recording seeking help from Princess Leia.

The Initiation: Obi-Wan becomes a mentor to Luke, and teaches him to “use the force”. Along the way he meets Han Solo, Chewbacca and other unsuspecting helpers until he completes his apprentice (which he does not know is taking place). Finally after much fighting, Luke is able to rescue Princess Leia and destroy the death star.

The Return: Then he returns home a new man where Leia awards Luke with medals for his heroism.

The Matrix

The Matrix is another example.

The Call: Thomas Anderson is fed up with life at a dead end job and knows there is more to his existence. He has a dream in which his computer types “follow the white rabbit” when someone comes to buy illegal computer programmes from him they ask him to join them on a night out. He declines, but when one of the group turns, she has a tattoo of a white rabbit, so he decides to follow.

The Initiation: Thomas Anderson becomes his computer alias Neo. He meets Trinity, and later Morpheus and is offered to be shown the truth in the form of the red pill (truth) or blue pill (fantasy). He opts for the truth pill and is initiated into a mysterious world where reality as he knew it is actually a computer programme. He gets to download multiple skills, thinks he is The One, but then realises he is not The One. Morpheus gets taken by the agents and he decides to save him.

The Return: Upon trying to save Morpheus he realises he is The One, saves him and defeats the agents. This is him returning with the realisation he is The One, although the return and initiation cross over a little.

This is the same structure you see in Harry Potter, The Wizard Of Oz, Alice In Wonderland, The Alchemist and just about every story based movie there is.

But how is this helpful?

This is the same story we can use as a metaphorical representation of who and where we are in our lives.

If you think life is meaningless and mundane, this means you should be on the lookout for synchronicities and clues of how to break free.

If you have just had a strong urge to go and do something very far removed from your comfort zone that has the potential to change your circumstances, then you probably should.

If you are stuck in a painful situation that seems to have no end, this means you are in an initiation. Being in an initiation does not guarantee you will pass “the test” but at some point you will be given an opportunity to break a cycle or take an opportunity.

If you have just been through an ordeal and conquered your inner (and sometimes outer) demons, bask in the glory, but remember there was 9 Star Wars movies, 4 Matrix movies and 8 Harry Potter books. Your Heroes Adventure may have many chapters, so strap in and try to enjoy the journey.

Much love, Luke.

On Taking Life Too Seriously

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Much of the time in life, we allow ourselves to take situations VERY seriously. This will sometimes turn pain into suffering, or prolong the challenges we face for growth. It also stops us from truly finding peace in life.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you feel a constant sense of anxiety in your life? Underlying everything? Where do you notice you take life or situations too seriously? What do you do to begin connecting back to self, and taking life less seriously?

Do you go through life with constant angst? A feeling deep down that there is always a little bit of stress or a little bit of worry? I’ve been through this. And in some ways, I thought it would never go away. But I focused on self awareness and living in the heart enough to kiss those days goodbye.

We can sure take life too seriously at times can’t we? I mean it’s fair. We have stresses in life that we get caught up in, we go, go, go, go, and often forget to take a moment to breathe. In Western culture, it’s all about obsessing over goals and getting there and telling ourselves sotries about what life will be like when we do finally get there… but what often happens to us when we live this way? We step into unconsciousness. We stop taking time to FEEL.

I want to help us remember to be STILL with this.

Various experiences and events have taken place in my life that have challenged some of my deepest ideals, belief systems and concepts that I felt were a part of me. This has gone on and occurred in my entire 11 year journey of truly changing myself. Whether it had to do with the work I do, friends, the world, relationships or big decisions in life, many things were challenged. It has truly been an incredible ride.

We sometimes might think “when will all the change and ‘chaos’ end?” A good question indeed, but isn’t this what we are here for at this time? To truly look at ourselves, look at all that we hold onto and all that we define our reality with. Literally everything! If you are feeling like you are the only one out there going through this stuff and feel like everything is backwards -that things are constantly being challenged, know that what you are experiencing is perfect, and we must remember to have fun with it!

Not Just A Human Experience

We are not here at this time to simply have ‘a human experience,’ we are here to evolve the human experience. It’s different! Stop looking at the past to tell us what to do, how we should move forward, and what ‘the greats’ did in our past to figure things out. We are not in that time, and the zeitgeist of our time now is not to simply exist but to be present as we deeply evolve the way of life on this planet.

We hear a lot “but we’re human, just embrace that!” That’s all fine, but what does that mean? What is a human? How should we be? Does being human mean accepting the world as it is? Are we capable of more? Can we redefine what it means to be human and what life should look like? Why do we give up so easily on dreaming big about these things?

I used to accept MANY limitations about myself and what I could do. But eventually, I was faced with the chance to let all that go, and reimagine what was possible. Even when everyone told me I was crazy and I couldn’t do what I was trying to do, I used my connection to self and consciousness to create it. Because I believed I was capable of more, and so is everyone else. This is how Collective Evolution, the site your on, came to be.

Embracing Change

After experiencing the many deep questions and challenges I have thus far, overcoming them and moving forward, I have one very special thing that I have reminded myself about over and over and truly understand to a deep level. We are here to play and evolve! None of what we are experiencing is as serious as we think!!

The mind and ego can make things very real, very dramatic, very frightening. I know! But the highest aspect of who we are is always clear, always neutral, and always sharing with us exactly what we need to hear because IT IS US! We are not the mind or the stories it creates that makes things so serious. They are there because that is our challenge. To go beyond the mind and the stories it creates -so we can experience this sensorial world and remember who we truly are (click to listen to my podcast on this topic.)

So let’s remember, whether it’s life choices, relationships, friends, work, family, sports, or everyday events, know that it’s just an experience! We can spend our whole lives always caught up in the drama and the intensity, saying “oh my gosh things are so tough, the world is so crazy, my life is upside down, and I’m so busy!” but where does this lead us? This is a question we must ask ourselves.

If we remain caught up in these perceptions, repetitive patterns of mind, we will continue to miss out on the entire journey we are on because we are lost and caught up in the mind. We perpetuate our so called “suffering” when we make things serious and make them a big deal. When we can see it for what it is, we allow the emotions to subside, allow back in our full potential and know how to take action forward. This is called finding true peace.

I’m not talking about simply accepting things and saying “well get over it” or “that’s how it is, so deal with it.” No. I’m talking about truly seeing things for what they are. Seeing why we color something in a particular way. Seeing the belief system behind why something is good or bad or right or wrong or even why it’s serious!

I promise you, behind every strong emotion, every serious situation, there is a belief system that makes it that way. One that is held in the mind and made real by the mind. But the mind is not YOU! See the story! Let it go and just play! You will find much peace and joy in flowing through your experience in this way.
