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.
