Not only did Michael and the Mother’s call to raise our vibrations bring several strands together for me but it’s galvanized me into action.
I had never considered what our common contribution could be to all that’s going on, but now I see it: Our common contribution is exactly this, raising our vibration.
The very phrase has the ring of truth for me.
Earlier I said that “getting” this phrase was like knocking the billiard ball in a different direction. That’s in effect what it’s been for me.
I, a person who specialized in lowering the vibration by being a stick in the mud as a very young child (in order to be heard), am now confronted with the need to learn something new from square one: How does one raise one’s own and the collective vibration?
I know none of the skills.
I watched myself the other day about to say subtle things on my cellphone which were about control. That was the first time in my life I had seen myself trying to control another person. I do control. Amazing. So awareness is working.
I have to stay out of judgement of myself to make the process work.
OK, here is my beachhead of understanding in this new field.
I can contribute my time-tested knowledge of one principal: The truth will set me free. In the practice of awareness, the truth sets us free from muscular tension, cognitive dissonance, weakness of purpose, etc.
I now have one skill to use in raising my vibration: Telling the truth – harmlessly, of course.
OK, thank you for that. I now have a second skill in my moral inventory: I know that harmlessness comes before truthfulness. I can practice harmlessness, except where life and limb are threatened.
Alright, up comes a third principal. My mind is popping like a popcorn machine. In a civilized society, a crime in the past does not justify a crime in the future. There’s no justification for a moral person to avenge themselves on the basis of past crimes.
These are all skills and principals that will assist me to raise my vibration.
But rather than simply knowing them, I now need to act on them to have the desired result.
I’m now headed in a different direction with three arrows in my quiver.
And a refusal to avenge.
