Will you step up into the light?
Or will you let the fear engulf you?
There will be three great moments in the history of this planet.
The first is the moment of life, of abiogenesis, the moment when matter slowly shifted together in an extraordinary way which allowed it firstly to
self perpetuate and then evolves in higher more complex forms through time.
The second is the moment of first consciousness, the moment when this collection of self-animated matter became capable of pondering its own
existence. The day the first human looked at his dying loved one or her newly born child and asked the question “Why…? What is the purpose of
life?” This is the moment when we began to lose the calm peace of an unconscious existence and replaced it with the thrill and the fear of realizing
we are alive but not knowing why.
And the third moment is now approaching. It is the moment when all our questions will one day be answered; it is the moment of Awakening. And it is
The world as we know it is speeding up at an ever increasing, exponential pace. The rate of technological innovation is doubling every few years or so
and an awareness of how we as humans can affect our planet in terms of the environment, economics, and socio-political issues is expanding like never
before. We are finally grasping that each and every one of our actions can affect not just ourselves but other people and other things on a global
And the masses have become restless, for somewhere deep in each and everyone us we sense in our subconscious minds that a great shift is coming. What
is this shift? It is that which has been foretold in almost every major belief system and today’s popular culture; wrapped up and disguised in
metaphors and myths. It is the apocalypse, the 2nd coming, the breaking of the seventh seal, the Rapture, the Mayan Calendar, the Age of Aquarius, the
end of the world as we know it.
It is the beginning of the New Age of Mankind, an emergence into the light, a lifting of the veil, a dawning of a new era of spirituality.
We are all on the brink of something great. And we all have a part to play.
Physical evolution has carried us thus far; indeed it has been our main influencing factor for the past 3.5 billion years. Physical evolution though
is slow, but then this evolution, this shift is not physical. It is an evolution of the mind, both the individual mind and as a consequence the global
mind. It is an evolution of spirit; and spiritual evolution can happen in just the blink of an eye.
Everything you see around you is a symptom of mankind’s restlessness for something new to emerge. The old ways are beginning to crumble and this can
be seen in the economic status of the world, the increased bullyboy tactics of the U.S. and the acceptance of it by the rest of the world, the Occupy
Wall Street Movement, the War on Terror and the near simultaneous outbreak of rioting in many of the more oppressed areas of the world. The tighter
restrictions on personal freedoms even after humanity have fought so long to attain them.
Other symptoms of this change include the internet – we are communicating and sharing ideas with more people than ever before. The increase
automation of menial tasks. The advances in our understanding of energies and quantum physics. The linking of eastern philosophies with western
mysticism. The discoveries in the field of medicine about just how our expectations and stress levels can affect our health. The genetic revolution is
another – we are moving beyond limitations of our physical bodies not just on a spiritual level but also on the material plane as well. And we are
just beginning to realize how connected everything really is.
But with change comes fear. A fear that society is not moving forward but is in fact degenerating. It is a fear for the loss of ways and rules and
institutions which kept the world so stable for so long, and at the same time a fear that those old ways are holding us back. One look around you will
tell you they are not working anymore, and thus the world is becoming polarized, between those who are fighting for this change to occur, and those
who refuse to let go.
But this is an old fear; this is a fear that has always been with us. It’s been there as we stole, lied and murdered, as we started wars. It was
there as we distorted the messages of great prophets to suit our own self-serving agendas; as we dehumanized others in order to further ourselves and
allowed corporate greed to run rife. It is the fear of the unknown, of being alone and abandoned. It is a fear that this life is all we have that and
that we must get ahead at whatever cost, that others are against us and that evil is real and exists within the world. It is the fear that makes us
believe that Satan is exists and that there is some organized conspiratorial evil seeking to take control. This fear manifests differently in each of
us, but ultimately it is what holds us back from trusting ourselves and our intuitions of what will truly make our lives, and therefore the world, a
The evolution of consciousness cannot continue while we as humanity are wrestling with the fear. For as fear and stress cause blockages within the
energy systems of our body and mind, so fear creates blockages in our evolution as a species and in the world itself which is essentially one great
living breathing organism..
This fear manifests itself as polarization amongst the masses; and one way or another it will touch us all eventually. All humans are migrating toward
one of two conflicting sides; the first seeking through vague (though slowly becoming clearer) ways to embrace this great shift, the other resisting
fearing, that the old ways of wisdom and important values will be lost forever. Each of us will identify in certain ways with both sides of this
polarization, but ultimately we will gravitate toward one side or another. This polarization is the fear coming into it’s own in one last almighty
stand prior to the shift. It is the epitome of dualistic existence, and it is the last great hurdle we must overcome.
It is up to each and every one of us to make a choice. Will you let the fear engulf you, or will you step up into the light.
For though global, and despite the quickening of the world, this change is unlike anything we humans have ever faced before. This shift does not have
to be cataclysmic. If humanity so chooses, it can be slow and subtle transition which indeed is the preferred way of world for all things of beauty to
For nothing happens in this world which is not meant to happen. And each and every one of you has been born at his point in time for a reason. Like I
said we all have a part to play in this great unfolding. Will your actions be guided by fear, or will you be guided by love and faith in something
So how do we overcome this fear? By realizing we are the creators of our own reality. In our live two things are manifested. That which we are afraid
of, and that which we have faith in.
Each of us must have faith that the world can become a better place; that we deserve better than the reality than that which exists in the world
around us today. And each of us must resist any efforts by others (and ourselves) to influence our lives and others through negative reactions to the
fear. This can be done on many different levels, from how we go about our day to day lives, to who we vote for, to what we make a stand against. We
must resist apathy, for apathy is merely acceptance of this fear and its control over our lives, and it is also an acceptance that you do not have any
power or voice to make a stand.
Ultimately, as Gandhi said, you must be the change you wish to see in this world. We each have been born at this time to facilitate this change in one
way or another; not to sit back and watch more of our personal liberties been taken away from us, more of our old growth forest cut down and another
50 kids get blown up in pursuit of an enemy which did not exist 12 years ago and whose armory consists mainly of ageing Soviet artillery and a few
sacks of fertilizer.
No one is born evil, we are all merely human, and each of us wants a better world for ourselves and our children. It really isn’t hard; all it takes
is a simple decision.
And just imagine…how amazing it will be to live in a world free from fear…
