There is a lot of good happening in the world and many signs we are evolving as a planet. You wouldn’t know it from what a lot of what mainstream news still puts out, which is largely designed to keep us in fear, separateness and struggle, and certainly doesn’t provide a balanced perspective of what’s really going on in the world.
I know what’s possible and available to us as a planet where all thrive, and peace, love and unity consciousness is the theme. I know the power we have as individuals and a collective, and if we choose to, we could have this today. I believe more and more people are waking up and we are moving in this direction, even though it feels at times we are moving there at a snails pace.
Change in the world starts with us as individuals and that’s where I go to measure true progress. I’ve experienced significant changes and shifts for the better in my own life since I’ve been on the path of “being the change” and embodying what I choose to experience in the world.
As a result, I feel much more peaceful and joyful, I’m not carrying old emotional wounds and upsets like I used to, I’m doing work that feeds me and is contributing positively to society, I walk lightly and in harmony with the planet, my health is better than it was twenty years ago, and I feel great in my body. I’m much more present and mindful, and my connection to spirit and to my intuition is stronger than ever, and helps guide my choices in life in accordance with what my heart most desires.
It’s no surprise that what I experience in my outer world has been impacted as well since our outward experience is a direct mirroring of what’s going on internally. These days I experience far less drama and conflict as a theme, and any that I do experience is resolved most often with consideration and respect. The quality of my relationships are far more nourishing and loving, and the people I interact with and come across tend to embody a theme of kindness, compassion, and higher consciousness more and more.
Life keeps getting better and better, and I’m experiencing a glimpse of what a more evolved way of being looks and feels like. No, I’m not fully there yet, but the changes I’ve observed in my own life are wonderfully encouraging and hopeful.
The other day something truly delightful happened. My son and I went to a movie together with my ex wife and we all seemed to really enjoy ourselves. That’s huge. Anyone who knows the journey my ex and I have had would likely be completely shocked that we were in the same room together, let alone got along.
I’m still digesting it myself because our recent history together has been highly volatile and tumultuous at best. And yet, we were able to find within ourselves the capacity to put aside our upsets and differences, and be kind and respectful with one another.
We even found ourselves laughing together in moments. There was no criticism, no judgment, and the conversations and energy of the experience felt light and friendly. It warms my heart to no end that we shared that experience together, but I’m mostly thankful that our young son was able to witness his parents coming together like that. He was beaming.
If we can make shifts toward greater harmony and peace, anyone can.
I have great faith and hope in us and our beautiful planet. We have it within this lifetime to put aside our differences, truly come together in unity, and celebrate our rich diversity, while we pool our collective wisdom, skills and energy to co-create a world that works for all.
