Greetings dear ones. We wish you all a very happy 2012 — the year so many have been waiting for for so long. Be aware that not all is going to suddenly appear different on December 21, 2012.
This is an ongoing process of light which is dependent upon you, dear ones, dependent upon the activity of light flowing onto the planet though the awakening of souls to their divine nature. These times are about awakening to your divinity, not simply about making the world a more pleasant place to live.
It is time for rejoicing, for you are close to the goal line, but it is not time to drop the ball. Every individual choosing to be a part of this most important time, must continue their inner journey beyond simple intellectual understanding. When recognized, truth must then move into a conscious realization–this is the journey of evolution. Depending upon soul contracts, lessons chosen, etc., some awakenings seem take longer than others but there can be no comparisons for if an individual’s intent is to awaken, the process will proceed perfectly, directed by Higher Self.
Mind interprets an individual’s state of consciousness and then manifests it as the outer. A mind filled with beliefs and concepts of duality and separation will manifest in the outer as experiences of duality and separation. As the individual consciousness becomes more and more enlightened, discarding that which is old and untrue, the outer then will begin to manifest in higher and higher forms. This is what is taking place, you are creating a new world from your enlightenment.
We say to you dear ones, that there is still much work to be done. Many do not realize that this is a process that must take place within the consciousness of each individual choosing to move forward and is not something that is going to simply drop into your laps as a gift from the Galactics. As each truth unfolds through personal inner work, it must then be put into practice. It must become your way of life, your way of thinking, your way of understanding the world–your state of consciousness.
Truth cannot simply be interesting dinner party conversation for new age thinkers, who in turn the next day go back to playing the game of “life as usual”. If you want to change yourself and your world, truth must be taken seriously. “Are these ideas that I am becoming aware of, truth or not? Do I really believe or am I just spouting words for my own ego gratification? If what I am now discovering about myself and the world is truth, than why do I continue to revert back to living that which is not truth?” These are the questions each and everyone must ask themselves for the time has come to stop procrastinating and choose.
You are see many engage in battles with anything that appears to be of the negative, however, when you engage, you are simply giving these negative appearances their own power. You see, it is just another form of duality sneaking in the back door. The more illumined way is to practice seeing through appearances to the reality behind every form. Recognize that all beings are Divine in their true essence even if they themselves have no interest in this truth; then take whatever human footsteps may be called for. If words and actions go forth carrying an energy of unconditional love (recognition of ONE) then they will have a very different effect than words and actions that flow on an energy of hate or anger. Remember, words are energy.
Begin to see the divinity of all living things. You can practice by imagining the spark of a diamond within the heart center of all you meet, read about, know, or see on the news. Your realization of their true nature will often help to awaken them if they are at all receptive. Make little reminders for yourselves–whatever works.
It is fine to stay informed regarding world events, but instead of going into frustration and negativity, begin to use the information as an opportunity to practice knowing the truth.
