Years ago I was interviewed on the Humboldt State University radio station, speaking about how individual healing leads to global healing. The show was scheduled way in advance, and as fate had it, I was interviewed on the night the US declared war on Iraq the first time. I wrote a blog post about it, years ago, entitled “Peace, what are you giving and receiving?”. Throughout the years I have explored more deeply into this topic.
Scientists are now proving that we truly are one, that what goes on inside of us affects everyone. It has been documented that large focused group meditations can affect sun spots, and a decline in emergency room visits and crime has been noticed as well. The fact that you can walk into a room after someone has been in an argument and feel it has been scientifically explained.
In 2004, when Dennis Kucinich, one of my heroes, spoke at the University of Washington, he spoke about violence. He talked of being in congress as they were deciding whether to enter or assist in a war going on elsewhere. He said he looked around the room at all these intelligent people and was wondering about this discussion taking place. He decided to look at violence and why it is a part of our reality. As he spoke of this, he was standing at the front of the stage. His first observation was to look at what causes war and violence between countries. Then he stepped back a little bit on the stage and spoke of then looking at what causes violence in a community. Then he stepped back further, as he mentioned looking even more deeply into what causes violence in a family. Then he stepped back even further, as he talked of looking even more deeply into what causes violence within him. It was a very powerful teaching moment.
Today I read an article, a transcript of an “interview” between Steve Beckow interviewing Linda Dillon channeling “Maitreya”. http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/06/maitreya-i-am-among-many-who-return-to-walk-among-you/
In the interview, Lord Maitreya, spoke of how we as humans feel so guilty, thinking we have done something wrong, are separate from Spirit and so we project that guilt outward as blame. He also spoke of the powerlessness that many feel. Maitreya reminded us that the evil or dark we assign to a Christian, a Muslim, a Hindu, someone of another culture or ethnicity, or the Illuminati, or Cabal, is also represented within each of us. AND, even more importantly, the true nature of all of us is light, love, our connection with Divine source and oneness. To put it in Christian terms, we ALL ate the apple. But even closer to the truth, is that ALL of us never truly left oneness. Our true nature is immense and vast light. This illusion we carry and is taught us, is what keeps us feeling so separate, so easily shaming ourselves and leading to guilt, along with projecting that outward in blaming others or attacking others.
I read a reference the other day to the movie “Cocoon” and it pointed to the scene where the ET’s, took off their human “suits” and underneath they were just light beings. The article reminded us that in truth, we are those light beings, just forgetting that we put on this light suit, and getting so lost in this illusion of separation that we have created this entire history of war and violence, lack and limitation, struggle and challenge on this planet. I used to not understand Buddha’s reference that this world is just illusion. But lately, more and more, I am beginning to see the truth that it really is all an illusion, that we all created this violence and separation out of a lie.
It seems that most of the revered spiritual teachers have spoken of this, all using perhaps different metaphors, such as Jesus reminding us to first seek the kingdom of God, the truth, the light, the love; and others pointing to the truth in other words.
I feel that we are in the midst of waking up to this truth, as this world transforms, and as we do, we will design and create another way of being and living. It feels as if instead of writing the screen play for a disaster movie or a war movie, we will write a new script that is uplifting, beautiful, encouraging; a movie/life/world of peace, cooperation, harmony and joy.
As we learn to forgive ourselves for these perceived mistakes we have committed, forgive others for buying into that same lie, it frees everyone up to take off those warring, angry, violent, fearful human suits and expose our beings of light.
Ah what a blissful time THAT will be!!!!!
