I got this question recently:
“So where does the hope come from if our food gets genetically modified, the planet is destroyed, innocent children die every day in wars and famine? There are so many dark secrets out there and plans to minimize world population. My question is: Do we or don’t we take action?
Marianne Williamson seems to think we should, and I certainly think it is important to at least be aware of what is going on in this crazy beautiful world… But then again, what you resist, persists, so there you are.
I find this question unsolvable. What is your opinion on this Paxton – lean back and be happy for ourselves, focusing only on good things, knowing we are One? Or maybe both – be happy AND enhance consciousness?”
Here is my answer:
Your very presence on Earth enhances group consciousness. Not what you do but just your presence in this telepathic pool of energy called group consciousness. Consciousness is more real than anything that can be “seen” in this world. Consciousness creates the entire motion picture we refer to as life.
I too have been recently led to become aware of many things happening on planet Earth. All my life I have had little interest in these things. It is significant to note that I was not led to become aware of these situations until I had lost all desire to correct them. Knowing that some scene exists in the motion picture is very different than believing in a “reality” which is all illusion, sleight of hand. Read on.
Those who seek the light always have found themselves in an untenable position. No-win situations have always been the case. Earth is a school and the school uses no-win situations to push people into a new way of looking at life, and to push seekers into becoming miracle workers for whom no-win situations are a piece of cake.
No-win situations cause us to seek another way of understanding existence. Without no-win situations we would be planetary couch potatoes, not seeking the light, having no interest in enlightenment.
The evolution of your soul has brought you to the toughest point on the path. This is the place where we discover that what we see in the world belies the existence of a loving, all powerful, God. Surely a loving, all powerful, God would not allow the domination in society of greed, disease, poverty, pain and struggle.
Then why does it appear that these conditions are in control of the planet and victims exist in all areas of life?
How can we gain self empowerment and the end of victimization?
Must we forever be dependent on medications and insurance policies?
Do we need power over the bad guys?
What is a Master Teacher and can we become one?
Why did the Master Teachers, all of them, including Buddha, Jesus, Lao Tzu, Abraham, and the Psalmists all tell us in their own way “Resist not Evil”?
Why did no Master Teacher tell us to throw the bad guys out of office and punish the criminals?
Because the Master Teachers were talking strictly to the seekers of enlightenment who were willing to make whatever changes in themselves, their beliefs, and their way of thinking, that was required to end their seemingly endless journey through incarnation after incarnation, ad nauseam, in a world of unpleasantness.
This point on the path is frightening because it is terrifying to release the belief system we have relied on for millennia in favor of a new, albeit much more loving, belief system which allows us to see everything as love and to enjoy eternal bliss.
The game is only about our belief system.
Those who are willing to stop seeking the attainments and pleasures in the only world they are aware of, which always bring only very temporary pleasure followed by disappointment, in favor of a radically different point of view will have the lasting joys of true understanding, bliss, eternal states of perfect health, happiness, and enrichment in a society where all are empowered. They must be ready to shift every belief they ever acquired.
Master Teachers rarely talk about action, other than “do unto others”. They talk about consciousness, meditation, and prayer. They know the only sure way to dissolve no win situations.
Are we willing to make radical shifts in what we have been taught and in those “principles” society has taught us upon which our self worth is based. Society teaches that we are “individuals” and our function is to work hard, to “earn a living”, to look out for old number one, to have compassion (feel sorry for) those who are less fortunate, etc.
Seekers slowly discover that there is so much more to the story of life that these “values” slowly fade into the background. This sounds like blasphemy to those who are not ready to abandon the struggles of life in favor of another system which actually works. And throughout history blasphemy it was, resulting in being burned at the stake or being fed to the lions.
But the “New Age” has arrived. The Aquarian Age. That age which encompasses the new Garden of Eden, just now beginning to birth itself in the minds of today’s seekers. This age returns to Earth every twenty-six thousand years. It is the time when Earth School holds its graduation ceremonies. All true seekers, those willing to adopt a new way of believing and seeing, are the faculty members who conduct the graduation ceremonies.
Seekers, this is not easy.
Be patient. It takes years, or lifetimes, to arrive at the new understanding.
Start by having the willingness to be shown how it is possible that there truly is a Loving, all Powerful, Source in this Universe that knows what it is doing. You can trust this source. “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed”.
Begin to contemplate the fact that your intuition has access to understanding which your intellect can never find. Through the intuition you can converse with all realms, including the Angelic and Extra Terrestrial. Through the use of your intuition you can begin to see the perfection in the Earth School system of education.
This ball game is a different one than you thought you were playing. It has nothing to do with “getting ahead” in the world or “saving” the victims. There are no victims, only students taking difficult classes with the self-chosen objective of graduating. Each person voluntarily enrolled in each life with the help of a guidance counselor. No mistakes were made.
All the Holy Books of all ages have contributed explanations and understanding of the purpose of life on Earth. So far not one in a million has caught a glimpse of what was in these books. All that changes now. It is the Aquarian Age. After the Aquarian Age the cycle will start all over once again. Then life will return to being an uphill battle, but for the next three thousand years life turns into the Garden of Eden again, the time when Gods and Goddesses walk on Earth.
Accelerate your journey to awakening by slowing your life down. Cherish moments of quiet. In the quiet your intuition gets activated. You touch the face of God in moments of stillness. Walk in nature. Sit by water. Have a quiet, sacred space in your home.
Accelerate your journey to awakening by contemplating, without immediately rejecting, some expanded ideas such as:
- Nothing on Earth is what it appears to be.
- There are no victims.
- Love is in charge of everything.
- Peace is the only thing you want.
- Nothing you see means anything.
Nearly all things that “exist” in this reality actually don’t exist at all, other than in our minds as a thought. Time doesn’t exist, duality doesn’t exist, solid objects don’t exist. Being the infinitely powerful creators which we are, we can still create “pain” in our minds around things that don’t exist, just as we do when we watch a motion picture in which Matt Damon is being killed. But it never happened.
Find the teachings of Masters who inspire you. Masters from any religion or any philosophy or any spiritual path. Pay attention to what they do not say (fix things and situations) as well as what they do say.
My personal favorite books written by Masters are Autobiography of a Yogi, A Course in Miracles, Illusions by Richard Back.
Before individuals have reached the point on their path where they are ready to stop defending their old untenable belief system, they still make progress by means of the Karmic Path. The Karmic Path causes each of us to, subconsciously, try to fix the wrongs which we engaged in in our past incarnations.
Therefore we have “causes.” We each have different causes because we have different past lives. For the karmic path to have any usefulness at all we must believe that what we see is real. We must believe that what we see is wrong.
So we try to correct politics, economies, the behavior of others, world hunger, the list is infinitely long. We feel like we have lost our sense of compassion if we surrender our belief in error. God does not allow error. God grants understanding, through the intuition, when we ask the divine for assistance.
The Karmic Path is a good path. It gets people to the point where, through frustration and pain, they want more. They become seekers of understanding, awakening, and enlightenment. They are ready to end the millennia of endless up-hill battles. They are ready to stop being “individuals” and become one with all that is.
We can honor other people’s (and our own) karmic paths without feeling a need to “fix” them. The spirit realm ensures that each and every soul returns, in time, to remembrance of its divine nature. There are no bad guys. Everyone makes it home.
There is no time.
You have two functions to accomplish in this life. First, complete you karmic lessons so you become “awakened” or “free’. This is done primarily by forgiving those people and situations which are unforgivable and loving all. Second, follow your bliss. That is, do what you love to do. In this way you will be sharing the gifts for humanity that you came to share.
No one has experienced pain and struggle except by watching it on the movie screen of their mind.
Everything is OK just the way it is.
Blessings dear one. You are safe. Understanding of all that is is coming your way. The outcome of your journey is guaranteed.
