The Art of Collective Visioning
Somewhere between toddler-hood and adulthood, we learn that if we really want something, we must ask or pray for it, work really hard, and if we want it badly enough, we daydream about it. Then one day, it'll manifest. We'll get what we want and move on to the next grand scheme that tickles our fancy. Some of us dream big, others are yet to learn how to go beyond boundaries set by society and our environment, but we all have an idea of how to get things for ourselves.
When it comes to creating an environment of peaceful evolution for our communities, our countries, our world, however, few people dare to dream that big. Why?
Because they can't IMAGINE it.
The mind is powerful. Our thoughts and imagination drive our world. Right now, as CV-19 rages through our cities and towns, tearing the world as we know it down, showing us all the places and spaces that need Light, it’s hard to imagine a future that is bright. But it’s right there at our fingertips: beyond the fear, a kernel of Light peeping through the veils of confusion and despair reminds us that we ARE connected to the ocean of wisdom that guarantees us a path to 'life-as-it-should-be'.
All it takes is a shift in perspective.
The best happens when we collectively imagine the best, and the worst happens when we collectively imagine the worst. So if we -- at least a critical mass of us -- cannot collectively imagine a world without wars, it won’t come into being.
Everyone declares that they want to live in peace and yet, in reality, conflict is what we avidly feed on daily. 90% of our movies, our news, our TV dramas, play up conflict with vicious brutality. In sci-fi movies and books, people’s clothing and technology get more and more sophisticated, while their minds remain mired in fear, and its cronies greed, estrangement, and conflict. The only thing to look forward to, it seems, is enslavement by the technology of the day.
Is this really the future you want, 21st century people? I’m guessing the answer is a resounding NO! for most of us. Well... the only way that ‘no’ can become a reality is if a sufficient number of us consciously choose to create a new paradigm — one that has peace and accord at its core — so we can finally find out what creative greatness lies beyond the state of universal harmony.
And that's exactly what groups of us all over the world have been doing 'independently' for the past few decades. Now a new paradigm is in place, waiting for the 'sleepers' to awaken to its potential.
Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking that peace is for pansies! The determination, strength, and emotional balance it takes to move beyond the rape-and-pillage, every-person-for-themselves models permeating every aspect of our lives, requires a step-up in consciousness, a quantum leap into the unbounded unknown, which takes a lot of bravery. But those who have already done it have paved the way for others to follow.
If you are one of those still hesitant to take the leap, isn’t it time to pluck up the courage and say YES! I want the freedom the new paradigm brings? Why is there so much unrest in so many countries across the globe right now? People are asking for the new paradigm. And what is the pandemic asking of us? To become aware of our interconnectedness, and our need for Ubuntu, the philosophy originating in Africa that leaves no-one behind, that says, "I am, because we are." The shift in perspective is happening. Let's rise up together to that place within us that mirrors the unity symbolized by our sister star system, the Pleiades. Let us rise to the consciousness of our interconnectedness from which compassion, harmony, Love, naturally spring. Let's begin to live the amazingly vibrant and creative lives our inner selves have dreamed of for so long.
