How to stay empowered and hopeful with darkness around us. (cont.)

20141218-213700.jpg

(Continued from yesterday.)

Looking within at our own mindsets, prejudices, hatred and misdeeds – minute by minute – and owning them – is the way to “face the negative” and releasing it.

Individually and collectively we will begin to see life change. Others may remain looking outward at all the turmoil. Fighting against it. (Joining with it and adding to it. Hopelessly connected to it because they cannot see or admit their part in it.)

But we will “ascend” to a higher vibration where this no longer affects us and we no longer have “stories” around this issue.

(I think this is what Albert Einstein meant.)

I have wanted to share with you this insight for a long time.

The time is now that we all realize our part in what comes into our awareness, and that how we respond, affects the collective.

The time is now that we pay attention with new eyes and understanding, especially where it bothers us most.

Seen in this way, we are being offered the greatest gift… as heaven wants us to ascend to the next level and is showing us the next thing on our list, specific to us, that we must transform to accomplish this.

I have found great peace in this understanding.

With my greatest Love to you and all who may find peace in this understanding.

Love, Lawrence Touitou

How to stay empowered and hopeful with darkness around us.

How can people who are bombarded with darkness every day, turn around and feel “empowered” and “hopeful” about the future?

This is a question that has bothered me, and I think bothers many people.

I’d like to offer the following…

Big “Bad” things do not make “little” good things a waste of time.

To the contrary. To see the bad and not allow it to alter our effort to still do a little good in the world is really a quality I admire in others and aspire to grow within myself. It can be done.

It is, in my view what the world needs right now. Straight up, hard core, LOVE.

I have been awakend by many posts about “challenges” that humanity is facing. I did not know about many of them. But I do not “dwell” there. (I don’t keep hanging out there. I am not drawn to them. They don’t feed me.)

Here are a couple of quotes:

“What we chant is what we become.” – Master Sha (What we focus on, allow to come into our awareness, speak about, look at, listen to, etc. continuously is what we become. And when we “chant” we “look within” basically. We focus on ourselves.)

Or, “A problem cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness it was created.” (Or something like that.) – Albert Einstein

If we see something bothersome,

We must turn off the TV, news or gaze outside ourselves, find a quiet place, and look within, to see where this issue originates. We may have, for example, been disrespectful, controlling, hurtful, abusive…

Towards ourselves, towards others, towards mother earth…

Because there is nothing…

Nothing

that bothers us outside,

that does not somewhere, at sometime have it’s source inside us.

Everything humanity is facing is something that we (collectively) have brought about.

(That’s karmic law basically.)

If we were abused in a relationship, we were at one time the abuser.

If we have challenges with authority,
we once were in a position of authority and guess what?

If we are emoted by an issue, whether it’s “children”, or “men” or “pollution” or “animals” or “government” or “religion”… it is bc we once were in these roles, and we were cruel and abusive to others, harming them, cheating, taking advantage, and more…

(Just the issue that bothers us the most points a clue. That’s why others are not as bothered as we are. We are even bothered that others are not as bothered. That they don’t see the utter horror, cruelty, selfishness… that we do.)

And so, to look at the “darkness” in front of us, to the aware, is truly to ask the question, “why does this issue bother me so much?” Now you are looking at the darkness. Now you are owning the darkness in you.

And with this profound awareness that we are responsible – not anyone “out there” (these are just ways in which we are being communicated with in the only way the universe knows how.) – we shine light (awareness) on it. We send our love to it. We ask for forgiveness for it. We are compassionate and offer our forgiveness. And we forgive ourselves for it.

In time, we rise above that vibration where this issue existed and move higher into more loving and compassionate beings, for all who have made mistakes.

(We break down the barriers that connect us all. We re-join together as one.)

Who has not done wrong? Who has not acted wrongly to another? Who, if not given the power and authority and money and wealth would not despite good intentions at the start, not eventually be seduced to take advantage of their power and create hardship for others, or the planet???

Very few.

Looking outward, we buy into the “finger pointing” game – the war against this or that – that has been embedded into our society, historical accounts, religion, culture, humor, media, etc. keeps us separated from each other and the truth.

Continued tomorrow….

Oneness and Accountability Final

(Continued from yesterday)

Many are taking action and it is coming. More and more people are waking up to who they are (who the collective is) and showing up to say, “I see you.” (I see you doing something which is not right.)

With the growing multitudes waking up to this knowing of “oneness” that we all are – with this truth out of the bag – no oppression of individualized self, creation of lack, fear and separation can prevail.

With our growing love, compassion and respect that we have for ourselves each day, and all that we see and experience in our lives that is not aligned with oneness, we are compelled with open eyes to be the presence which discourages and removes it, without joining it.

20131125-140603.jpg

We no longer need to be hostile or fearful. But not close the door or look the other way either; to face it. Compassionately as we would a lost child or someone ill.

To be a leader in the new age will require great courage, inner strength, evolution of heart and a different paradigm than the one we have been living from. The time is right for this great change to occur.

To realize our connection to all things, this “oneness”, is, “the ultimate accountability”.

It allows us to feel joy and pain for all things. It allows us to see the truth clearly, uncluttered by our selfishness.

It also creates a presence which permeates to all; to “wake up to our calling, to wake up to our “oneness”, to “do the right thing” by and for all, and to take center stage.

These will be the leaders of tomorrow.

It’s time we stop ignoring “what we know”. We are all accountable.

We aspire to reach this ideal and in time we will.

With all my love…

Oneness & Accountability Continued…

To radiate “oneness” is to awaken in others their connection to all things.

And in this state of oneness, it makes no sense to be at war, in opposition or in disharmony with anything.

This “oneness”, achieved by self-love, forgiveness, compassion and light (where “self” becomes “all”) is therefore “the ultimate accountability”.

20131125-141947.jpg

It forces others to face themselves. Their actions. Their words. Their thoughts.

All we need to do is “be” this example. To radiate our oneness. To radiate our natural love, peace and harmony with all things.

Not to tell others to do it. Not to tell others to change their ways. But to be the experience of that change. To be love. To be the experience of peace. To be the experience of compassion, understanding and light.

And not in an ashram… Not in a cave or monastery. To be this light and love in public. Just as a child or animal would do. They would not hide from it.

To remain an example of unconditional love, forgiveness, compassion and light with eyes wide open, in times of adversity and challenge… Not in bliss.

In the face of lying, cheating, stealing, war, taking advantage of ones position of power, suffering and exploitation of people and our planet…

All we need to do is show up. Non-violently, non-confrontationally, show up. As one. With pure love in our hearts. (There is nothing to fight against except ourselves.)

This is what is needed in the world right now. It’s what has always been needed. But now everything is coming to the surface so the time is right for change.

“I see you.” “I see you as my own pain and suffering.” “I see you as part of me.”

To remain in oneness during times of great adversity has been the task of great souls, angels and saints like Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and many others throughout history.

This is how Heaven will come to Earth. Through us.

(One final note. tomorrow…)

Oneness vs. getting “hooked”

In the last post I described the reality of oneness as I experience it. In this new reality, how do we regard those in the “old reality”?

With love and compassion? Why? Because the moment we don’t, we will return to this “old reality”.

20131022-125138.jpg

To be part of the universal whole, we must vibrate with oneness, compassion, forgiveness, love and light as much possible, no matter what transpires.

The moment we see ourselves as “better”, “I’m good, you’re bad”, etc., we create separation. We fall back into “who we are” as “separate”, ego rears it’s defensive head, and we lower our frequency and join the reality that is being shown to us.

(We become the thing we were opposed to, or obsessed over or predominantly focused on. It now has power over us and we have become vulnerable, and susceptible to it.)

Once we get hooked, we have lost our ability to help bring that issue to oneness. To influence that situation in a positive way.

To offer our love, compassion, understanding and forgiveness towards dark and light, good and bad, that we perceive in us, and around us; in all people, groups, situations and experiences, without allowing them to “hook” us, is one of the keys to staying in oneness.

It is not a destination. It is a way of being.

It is the ultimate accountability.

(More about this in my final post next time…)
