For the first time in human history the teachings of all the religions, magical paths and spiritual practices of humankind are available to us to study and experience. As the planet shakes in ecological, economic and existential crises, there has never been a more urgent or rewarding time to dive in and discover what life is, who we are and why we are here. Of course we can leave that to others to do and simply become their followers or detractors. Better to take the journey for ourselves.
Each one of us is a unique manifestation of conscious human spirit, a self-aware being experiencing life. Our existence on this planet is basically miraculous, considering how vast and dangerous we know the universe to be, and the level of development humans have reached, overcoming the challenges nature gives us, is incredible. Our bodies are amazing, our emotional possibilities are vast, our intellectual capabilities awesome, and perhaps our spirits are infinite and our souls eternal. Why live as a limited being, constricted by logic and constructed by the norms of society. We are unique individuals with powers of intuition, empathy, imagination and insight. Only we can choose for ourselves to get out of our boxes and create the life we would like. And if there is to be positive change in how humanity acts and thinks, only individually can we contribute to the elevation of the collective consciousness.
The reward for making the choice to explore spirituality is knowing yourself as a free, untainted, pure and eternal soul. Or live in fear. Since we passed the cosmic threshold of 2012 the vibration of life on earth has been changing fast. Those who make the choice to grow as a conscious soul will find the times to come much more exciting – and easier to navigate – than those who continue to believe in fear and separation. The choice is going to become starker and clearer. Only our own negativities hold us back. We need each other for support on the path, but we need to choose for ourselves to get on the path in the first place.
Or we could of course just keep moaning that everything is going to hell – and thereby help it get there.
‘Many things in your life matter, but only one thing matters absolutely… that is finding the essence of who you are beyond the short-lived entity, that personalised sense of self. You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.’Eckhart Tolle
“To be human is to be born into a dance in which every animate or inanimate, visible or invisible being is also dancing. Every step of this dance is printed in light; its energy is adoration, its rhythm is praise. Pain, desolution, and destruction in this full and unified sacred vision are not separate from the dance, but are instead essential energies of its transformative unfolding. Death itself cannot shatter the dance, because death is the lifespring of its fertility, the mother of all its changing splendor. If we could bring ourselves to open to this vision, we would undergo a revolution of the heart.” Andrew Harvey, The Return of the Mother
i am shokti, lovestar of the eurofaeries, aka marco queer magician of london town. i explore the links between our sexual-physical nature and our spirits, running gatherings, rituals and Queer Spirit Festival. i woke up to my part in the accelerating awakening of light love and awareness on planet earth during a shamanic death-and-rebirth process lasting from January 1995 to the year 2000, and offer here my insights and observations on the ongoing transformation of human consciousness, how to navigate the waves of change, and especially focusing on the role of queer people at this time.
