"It is interesting that
the gaps in our consciousness
only become visible
when they start to disappear.
And as the gap in my consciousness closed,
my mind opened."
Dr. Melanie Joy
But we're forced to use this medium, at least for now.
Words have intrinsic power, and as many have pointed out, we "spell" words.
This alludes to the fact
that they do often contain spells when maliciously used, while they
can be wonderfully empowering and enlightening when correctly used,
or in some cases avoided altogether.
We don't have to be part of it and can rise above that paradigm whenever we want, which will hopefully become a continual way of living for each of us.
This begs for greater
awareness of the roots of language and how to avoid the many
pitfalls of careless and unintended usages of this medium of
Those are the obvious sort.
Sometimes strong words
are quite apt but they have leaked into the vernacular to a very
Mainstream media uses this as a matter of course and control, but even much of alternative media is rife with polarity and dwelling on the negative and something from which we can learn.
Sure there are occult
influences and there's a concerted effort to quench our humanity,
but look at us thrive and learn and grow in spite of it all.
While they need to be pointed out, it's unnecessary to keep repeating these dark realities we're profoundly aware of.
Why conjure up these images unnecessarily or re-taste their dark effects once they've been exposed? It's contrary to what we're trying to create and actually works against the process.
We do the same when in a
misguided spirit of judgment about people and ideas in our efforts
to formulate opinions and identify what we're experiencing.
We can allude to them
effectively enough without transferring that energy. We do the same
when emphasizing the aspect of polarity when we repeat and emphasize
the "us and them" and "right and wrong" dualistic worldview.
It often comes in a combative form when letting off steam or expressing strong emotions,
That's a vivid form of
what I'm talking about.
We think we're being a
good friend by commiserating and complying with someone's issues, or
initiating our own to get down to their level as a "friend", but
it's so often groveling in lower dimensional, degrading and
disempowering and even violent and angry language which only draws
everyone into a negative vortex.
It not only does no good except to make us feel better about ourselves, it does serious harm - to ourselves and others.
We think we're being smart and informed pointing out all the evil we think we can see so clearly (usually comparing ourselves to those "ignorant" ones who cannot) but we're really just bringing out the garbage again and again and spreading it around to look at and gloat in our disdain, creating a self-sustaining loop of negativity.
That becomes a habit and
thus makes us feel good when we do it, satisfying a misguided urge.
Whole careers are built on tearing down what some consider false. This can be an important part of awakening, but it's only part of the equation.
Without clearly planting
and building up and affirming what takes the place of what needs to
be destroyed, we're left with destruction and chaotic debris and
Many get the wrong negative energetic undercurrent or carrier signal instead of a mountain top vista with clear, empowering solutions, leaving ourselves and others with encouragement and inspiration instead of focusing on all that's seemingly "wrong".
In a fear prone world
it's important to be sensitive to this. We see this so clearly in
the "system" but do we see these tricky mechanisms happening within
ourselves? It's a challenge we need to face.
Remember, the ego, the wrong one based in fear and pride, wants to stay alive at any cost. Only getting fully honest with ourselves can we even see this at work.
Again, it's all fear based, even in the most bold and brave looking fully engaged yet entangled individuals.
No one can see this at work until they've made the choice to be willing to let go of the self image built around our beliefs. Ego driven self assertion only creates more separation which leads right back to polarity, a completely unintended consequence.
Once we do let go, more
than we can imagine opens up to us.
It can be tricky stuff, but it's quite simple.
We just examine what made
us say what we said and how we said it and what feelings and mind
trips are behind it. When that happens we look at the originating
thought process and identify what it is we really meant and come up
with a better more truthful way of putting it.
I won't say evil because that's a buzz word with way too much baggage and misleading meanings and inferences. That goes for a lot of words, but some we have to use.
In fact, we can reverse
the wrong connotations of many words that have been polluted by
using them correctly with right meaning and spirit.
We notice a softness appear in our communications and demeanor yet the same basic message is conveyed without the swords and spears and tar flinging. We then soon start to notice the sound of the trees, the shimmer of the starry night sky, and the beauty in people around us, and not their faults and weaknesses.
Life changes. In fact,
our reality changes. Because we did.
We're aware of what's out there, but aren't drawn into it.
The problems arise when
we don't want to let go of the world we've built and worked so hard
to create as our bastion of beliefs from which to attack the
"enemy". That's a big one, but it's surmountable as we let go of our
misguided belief systems.
It's not going to work - it never has and never will.
That's one of the main things we're here to learn in this dimension of seeming separation. It's the very thing that inhibits unity consciousness as well as personal development and stops love in its tracks.
So there's no condemnation in coming to that realization - it took all that for us to arrive at the right answers.
And we're a lot stronger
and wiser for it.
We endure it to be a friend and a listening ear, and there's a time for listening, but,
The easy way to start is to eliminate harsh and condemning words, anything that "conjures" up dark imagery and unnecessarily draws focus on what's wrong.
There's an element of importance in understanding what we're up against in this reality, but to continually draw attention to it and see it in everything is to be entrapped by it, when there's so much beauty around and within us. What we accentuate and give energy to grows.
Do we want the dark
energy to expand and grow, or goodness and love and what's right?
Again, it's pure physics and energy dynamics when it comes down to
it and extremely practical.
We assume we're understood, that we don't literally mean what we're saying and that it's just to make a point and chime in to the vibe going around, but the words stand alone and have weight - serious weight.
This behavior is curried
by the very things that many of us detest in social engineering
programs, yet we fall for this on a very personal, continually
reinforced level, even in our self chatter, denigrating ourselves.
It's careless, and quite unconscious behavior that takes a serious
toll on everything energetically.
We've so often fallen for the engineered worldview we often give up our sense of wonder and love except as a fall back position, instead of it being the prominent reality.
We're angry and pissed
off at everything and let powerful negative emotions and frustration
Even the quantity of
information itself, as well as the quality, can be overwhelming and
needs to be carefully monitored, in addition to any fascination for
Re-read something you wrote and take out what you know isn't fully true phrase by phrase as well as any strong wording that could be said another way that still tells the truth of what you're trying to say.
Take out (not "cut" as an example) the words that lend pointless or excessive negative connotations.
...or something closer to the truth and not such a harsh put down of yourself you don't really believe anyway.
That's a false belief we take on temporarily to self efface and gain points and chime into some false meme. So unnecessary - as well as patently untrue.
Just look at the effect.
This can be applied across the board.
Violent and harsh and negative language and thoughts even weaken our immune systems and cause other health hazards. It's mindless behavior. It's a perfect example of how energetic systems seek to grow, be they shadow energies or life giving ones.
We need to choose wisely
what we want to be part of, now more than ever as times appear to be
There's a place for right
knowledge but so much is toxified we have to be extremely careful
what we deal with and how we interact with it.
Once we understand what's going on we're meant to detach from the mechanisms that hold us back while utilizing the empowering information. We literally leave one room and move into another realm.
So why spend so much of our time being upset about the nature of the old one, or re-describing it continually, be it the world system or our own pasts?
The answer is to simply
get out and not let it sap our energy, and by our example
encourage others to change paradigms as well.
When we get to that truer and better reality then we'll understand what real solutions are - and how they've been available to us all along by simply throwing the switch - saying goodbye to the old and moving into co-creating the new.
The shadow miasmas that
are currently in place to teach us, being our own unenlightened
reflection in many ways, will dissipate for lack of participation in
thought and deed and thus not allowing ourselves to be its energetic
"Give life to things which are beautiful.
Don't give life to ugly things.
You don't have much time, much energy to waste.
With such a small life, with such a small energy source,
it is simply stupid to waste it in sadness, in anger, in hatred, in jealousy.
Use it in love, use it in some creative act, use it in friendship, use it in meditation;
do something with it which takes you higher.
And the higher you go
more energy sources become available to you.
At the highest point of consciousness,
you are almost a god.
It is in your hands."
