Aluna Joy, Feb. 2011
Life has been a major roller coaster ride these past few weeks. We are feeling and witnessing a inner revolution of duality. Our inner and outer worlds are transforming right before our eyes. I can feel the light flooding back into the collective at such a huge rate that I can hardly contain myself. Today the world is beginning to be re-born. It might be a bit premature to say this . . . but kids . . . we did it!
The first domino has fallen, prompting not just a “trickle down effect,” but an avalanche into a new world where the masses will be unified, and each will be honored. Freedom, truth, and integrity, love and peace are pouring down on this new emerging dimension, and we all get to be a part of history in the making. This is such an amazing time to be walking on this earth. We have been waiting for this for a long time.
Of course my excitement and exhilaration comes from the recent good news of Egypt obtaining freedom in only 18 short days. I am in absolute awe of the power of what a unified collective can do. We are rising up to a higher playing field as current events as shown us what we can accomplish in a short time if we simply stick together within a common goal. Because of these recent events, I feel even MORE assured that our peaceful transition into a wonderful new world is at hand. We have had our first major example that this is true.
We have earned our renaissance, rebirth, regeneration, and reawakening. This new day is possible because of many brave ones who have gone before us in the fight for love, peace, truth, human rights and equality. My hero short list . . . Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, Jeshua, the Beatles . . . even Woodstock and all the flower power hippies!
Now I have to add to the growing list . . . a young google employee armed with social media that has catalyzed Egypt’s version of the Berlin Wall. We all know now that even an entrenched and well-established regime of darkness has no control over us. Freedom is possible for one and all. The happenings of these past 18 days felt like Gandhi on steroids. He would be so proud. It was spectacular.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the decision that something else is more important than fear. ~ Ambrose Redmoon
As this peaceful revolution was going on in Egypt, I have to admit that a not so peaceful inner revolution was going on inside of me. A revolution began to awaken something inside of me. I was taking a long over-due retreat, yet my body was having huge panic attacks. I felt agitated, my chest hurt, my heart was racing, I could not sleep, and I was out of sorts. I felt that I was losing it.
Alongside the horrific panic that I was feeling, I also felt a deep calm . . . almost too calm. I was confused how my body could be reacting one way and my spirit/soul another. In the middle of the night . . . lying there sleepless again, I had a revelation. I remembered something that I already knew, but just remembered.
This panic was the primal survival energy of my genetic code, DNA, and the programs of this mortal body. On the complete polar opposite side of this was my eternal higher self that lives in timelessness and knows that all IS, and will BE, well. This was the clearest I have ever experienced my higher self.
I know that if I am feeling this now, then many of you are too, as we all connected, if we like it or not. What happens to one happens to all at some level. This inner revolution has been essential in helping us get in touch with our polar opposites. Now that we are becoming clearer about the light inside of us, we are also seeing the dark ego dissolving away, kicking and screaming all the way. It is the end of our inner dark regime! How cool is that! Now we have the ability to make better choices . . . choices from love and trust instead of fear and hate. I choose living from my higher self. Hey, I want to feel good, safe and happy. Don’t you? Living from the higher self is certainly more comfortable and stress free. The higher self is like the quiet peaceful place in the center of the storm, a peaceful retreat that we can go to anytime . . . or even better, we can stay there 24/7!
As we learn and grow through this inner revolution, we will need to support each other. It will be important to allow everyone their personal unique way of dealing with their inner revolution. It is easy to let the fear talk through us in these times, instead of the love in our hearts. So we need to forgive ourselves when we fall short of our spiritual expectations. I hope we can all be as authentic and real as possible rather than always trying to be perfectly spiritual. After all, we are all spiritual beings having a human experience.
Each one of us has a different way of learning, understanding and waking up, but we do have the same destination. So don’t get all in a bunch if fear grips you for a time. Hey, I get wigged out sometimes too. It is human and part of the normal process of waking up. It is the catalyst that helps us wake up. I can’t help but feel the magnitude of the importance of this inner and outer revolution and what we have and will learn from it. It will be vitally important as the new world (and Egypt) transforms around us in the years to come.
P.S. We leave for Egypt in 3 weeks. I missed most of the 60’s, Woodstock and the Berlin Wall. I am not going to miss this. The funny thing is that I knew I would be going back to a new Egypt . . . but at the time I arranged our Egypt pilgrimage, I didn’t know what that meant until these past two weeks.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that was going on inside himself.
He said, “My son, it is between two wolves….
One is evil: Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment,
inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.
The other is good: Joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness,
benevolence, empathy, generosity,truth, compassion and faith”.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then
asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied: “The one I feed”.
