I am only
one, but I am one.
I cannot do
everything, but I can do something.
And I will not
let what I cannot do
what I can do.
These words by
Edward Everett Hale, a
Unitarian spiritual teacher who helped with several social
reforms in 19th century America, demonstrates our power
to be a change maker, no matter how seemingly small
that impact may seem to be.
We are living in turbulent times right now.
There are many ideas,
ranging from the ancient Hindu
yuga cycles to the modern
Great Turning theory,
indicating that we are in a profound time of transition.
Everywhere you look,
there is upheaval...
We are being forced to
re-evaluate everything we have considered to be unchanging and the
way that things should. The
imbalances have become so great
that there is now a readjustment phase we are going through, which
will eventually lead to balanced wholeness, one way or another.
It seems there are issues facing our collectively shared reality
that are insurmountable.
This can lead to a
defeatist attitude, as well as a discarding of our values
because fear is driving us to align ourselves with individuals,
movements, and ideas that are perceived as being a "lesser evil"
than the alternative.
We have to be careful
not to give away our power.
We all share a
responsibility to do our part in restoring balance and creating the
Yes, you are just one
person, but that has never stopped other luminaries of times
past from being catalysts for global change...
You can look at yourself
as being just one agent of change in two ways:
You take on a
helping role in a specific way for a specific issue
affecting the entire planet.
You expand and
elevate your consciousness and continuously pulse out a
frequency into the collective consciousness noosphere that
will help raise the vibratory frequencies of all other life,
including the very Earth itself.
The most effective
change makers do both of these simultaneously...
It is easy to be happy
and loving when things are going well, but the true test of how
evolved you are comes when there are extreme challenges facing you
and the collective experience.
How strong are you...?
If someone asks you how can you be happy, peaceful, and loving in a
time when the world is on fire, you can tell them that this is
especially the time to be that way.
The Future is
What We Decide to Make it
Are we collectively evolved enough to take responsibility for
creating a nourishing future for ourselves and of all life?
We will continue to
see the manifestation of situations which do not have our best
interests in mind.
We will continue to
see further turbulence, suffering, and degradation of
It's time to graduate
into a responsible human family working
together to co-create a future that benefits all of us on
The future is entirely in our hands.
Beyond the 3D aspects of
making the planet a safe and habitable place for us, on a more
subtle level, we can shift the energy of the global
noosphere in a way which will
transpose down into the dense 3D realm of our
local Reality here on Earth and
restore balance, harmony, and coherence.
Never underestimate the tremendous power
our consciousness has on physical
reality. Our thoughts can literally shape and create a new reality!
One person alone is
powerful, but consider,
how powerful billions
of people are, all having the same focused intention?
The results would
literally transform reality.
We are in a time of great transition, transformation, and
Let's change the course
of our collective future present towards a reality where we
celebrate and nurture life, restore balance and maintain harmony.
