I’m a curious bloke. All my life I have asked “Why?” when faced with something I couldn’t understand. This has led me down many paths of research and inquiry, which has increased my knowledge base. But the asking of Why? has been a blessing and a curse.
As we move through the Shift to higher consciousness, we also move through our karma, both present life and past life. Humanity as a whole is moving collectively through the darkness we have all created during hundreds or even thousands of lifetimes on earth. This evolution means that on our way upward we encounter negative stuff.
Recently I have been doing some powerful meditations and affirmations, trying to place myself in a very high state of consciousness, and in the light. However, this has inevitably led to encounters with the barriers of negativity from my past actions, thoughts, and emotions. We have all experienced this: the paradox of advancement into the light means we must work through the darkness we have created along the way.
I have been experiencing both physical and emotional barriers as my meditations get more powerful and build on themselves, but I have not been able to fully accept these barriers. “I’m supposed to be in the light! Why am I experiencing this negative stuff?”
It’s one thing to preach, but it’s another thing to practice what you preach! The practicing part, that gets hard.
Curiosity is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it can get in the way. When something happens that I don’t understand, I always ask Why? I realized this morning that curiosity about something fascinating or exciting or informationally new is a good thing. But asking Why? when something bad happens sticks you in the bad thing. Asking Why? puts you inside it, and then you begin to feel crummy. The problem is that asking why is an intellectual exercise, and it doesn’t help you to resolve emotional or physical difficulty.
For example, I have been having balance issues. I’m walking around OK, but I feel that I’m going to fall over. In the past this has been resolved by seeing my chiropractor, but that hasn’t worked this time. So I ask “Why am I feeling so crummy?” This is the wrong question! It isn’t surprising that I’m having balance issues, because the entire planet is unbalanced right now, especially in the US, where the hatred is just getting stronger and stronger, and people are taking sides. Apparently, if you aren’t screaming invective from the Left or the Right, you’re not even in the game.
In my meditation this morning I decided that instead of asking Why? when something negative happens, I decided to replace the why with the love of God. Lee Carroll and Kryon are really big on this. We are all an aspect of God, so why not use that to our advantage? Replace why, with love. Since love is the basis for all emotions, both positive and negative, replacing a crummy feeling with love should dissolve it.
This sounds pretty obvious when you write it down linearly on paper, but it was a profound realization for me. That’s because I always ask Why? Moreover, asking why is a God-driven impulse, because the Creator is the most curious entity in the universe. The Creator sends trillions of souls from the Great Central Source into the physical, to gain experience and discover Itself. We are all little pieces and part of the One.
So, wanting to understand is a Godly impulse. But asking why about negative stuff just flips you more into it. The solution is non-linear: replace the negative emotion with pure love, as much as you can generate. When something unexpected happens to me my first impulse always was, “Why?” Now it’s going to be acceptance, then love.
It doesn’t matter to me anymore why something happens. It happened, so what, accept it. This is an old philosophy (stoicism), but in the old energy it was usually followed by apathy, because the dark was stronger. “Nothing I can do about it.” “You can’t fight City Hall.” So you just grind it out, hoping things will get better.
You Are Your Best Counselor
The good news is that you don’t need anything outside yourself to advance yourself spiritually. You don’t need the latest procedure to enhance your DNA, or remove your karma, or whatever spiritual marketers are hyping. Folks, I don’t want to step on any toes, but there are a lot of spiritual people out there trying to make money. I’d bet almost all of them are genuine, and genuinely believe that their program is the greatest thing since sliced bread (that’s an old phrase my grandpa used to say). But we are all aspects of God. Therefore we all have God inside. The path to enlightenment isn’t through your spiritual guru or the latest and hottest self-help book or program. It’s through your personal connection to God. And that you have complete control of. Your personal path leads through your personal connection to the One, and only you can do that.
This is why I have abandoned all spiritual teachers except Lee Carroll and Kryon. Lee offers his audio lectures for free on his website, you can hear everything he does. Sure, he sells books and tickets to his talks when he channels Kryon. But Lee makes it clear he isn’t in it for the money, even though he’s probably pretty well off (hundreds of people come to his presentations all over the world). I have no problem with that. He doesn’t hype his talks, even though he is hands-down the most genuine channel on the planet (IMHO). I’ve heard other channelers but they don’t even come close. Kryon is the real deal: that energy is coming directly from the other side of the veil. If you are looking for inspiration, go to kryon.com and click on “free audio.” There are channels all the way back to 2002, and it’s not new-age bullshit. If you haven’t heard Kryon before, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
Information Chaos Is Good
I realize now that my understanding of Why is a logical progression from emptying my box of beliefs, as I talked about in previous posts. My belief box was so cluttered with “now I have tos” and “now I’m supposed tos” and “scientist A says this” and “my trusted information source says that” and “here are the facts I am marshaling on this, and this, and that to support my arguments” that I got too emotionally riled by stuff that happens in my life. I was getting too “triggered” by events that were just the opposite of what I wanted, which is peace on earth.
Here in the US, almost everyone gets triggered because the lunatic media spews hatred of the “other side” 24 hours a day. I’ve learned to simply ignore the news programs, because they just marshal facts (or lies) to support a political agenda.
Objective journalism is dead in the USA, but that’s a good thing because before the Shift, the fix was in. Reporting was more “objective” but it was all about keeping the darkness and the status quo firmly in place. I used to read the New York Times, the NYT Book Review, the Economist, the New Republic (when it was liberal), Rolling Stone, NPR, and the Guardian, and convince myself I was “informed.” Hah! I was informed all right, but informed about memes that supported the old energy and the old paradigm. If you think mainstream media are giving you the full picture, think again.
The current information chaos is a great thing because now the darkness is being exposed. People are talking about things that really matter to them, even though the information isn’t “objective.” There’s a lot of hate, but it’s genuine hate! not covered-up bullshit. The fix is no longer in – well, the old order is trying to keep the lid on, but it’s blowing off folks. By election time in 2020 we’re going to know a lot more about the true state of affairs, and who is truly working for the light, and who is working for the dark. As the old energy paradigm releases its hold, we are going to see that things (and people) are not always what they appear to be.
So don’t panic about the current scene. Believe it or not, it’s much more honest. The old energy paradigm is dissolving before our eyes. People are waking up. The world as we know it, which has been surrounded by a shell of darkness, is breaking apart like new life coming out of the egg.
