What’s going on in the world holds our close attention.
From fires in Australia to flooding in Jakarta, from earthquakes in Puerto Rico to volcanoes all over the globe.
And here I am writing about Ascension and loving. It feels incongruous.
My instructions are to look at these matters from a neutral place, without making-wrong.
How to get from here to there? And where does a lightworker perspective fit in anyways, when suddenly deluged by events?
I can only report on what I want to see come out of so much suffering.
What I want to see is the rise of global community, a worldwide connection among us everyday people. Never mind the world’s present controllers. We’ve been told repeatedly that their day is over.
But ours has just begun.
How do we connect as a world?
It’s sad that people only seem to throw custom aside and pitch in wholeheartedly when a big tragedy strikes. Or when some writer talks it up and stirs up a maelstrom.
Normally we hardly seem to smile at each other on the street these days, so distant have we become from each other, in my opinion, because of our cellphones.
Global community? We haven’t got a local community. Our emotional distance has probably affected many family communities as well.
If at first it may feel like an uphill battle, well, it probably is. But it’s a journey, I say, we all need to take as a world.
The first step in addressing the tragedies, in my view, would be in sharing what is easiest and most portable – a portion of our disposable income. I’m not asking those without to contribute. I’m asking those who do have the means, to start building global community by sharing – globally. (1) That’s the easiest way to express caring in our society as it is, short of offering listening.
Yes, caution is required. Contribute to some foundations, for instance, and none of it will reach its desired destination.
From that point on, everything depends on availability, resources, etc. Whatever it is, it sees us begin to take action beyond just contributing. Firefighters go to Australia. Alternative media uncover the true story of the bushfires. Countries send needed supplies as well as military vessels to ferry those in need of rescue. Or put out fires.
We’ve had so many attempts at this from people and movements too many to list. But somehow we haven’t reached the critical ignition point yet. And we haven’t achieved an enduring global connection.
How will it occur?
Do planetary disasters on this scale have to happen to bring us to it? 9/11? Hurricane Katrina? Haitian earthquake?
Does it await Disclosure and the impact of meeting our star family?
When will the planet be aflame with community love and compassion and disown the cold indifference we’ve developed towards each other, none more than I.
I want the world to be my community. No borders, no elites, no secret agencies, no militarism. Just ordinary people enjoying life and reaching out. We’ve had this kind of world before (after World War II for instance) and we can have it again.
(1) We used to call it “building social capital.” I agree with that label. Receiving money is a language most people speak, understand, and welcome. I think it does build social capital and that it leads to people connecting.
