Wake Now Discover

Watching "Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream" on Gaiam TV yesterday reminded me of how imperative it is to wake up from this illusion of separateness. This collective nightmare socially permeated our world with the industrial age and the belief that we can be understood in a mechanistic way.

We dissected the world and then began to believe with an egoic sense of superiority that the human species was separate and above all. With this critical mistake in thinking we began to treat the planet and all living species as an unending resource. As a result we all suffer.

Now, we not only feel but are truly beginning to "know" that this is not true. Our every action and inaction ripples outward and inward affecting all. This collective behaviour is not a "flaw" in human beings it is simply a mistake. With awareness of the mistake and then with attention and correction of the mistake by our choices and our behaviours we have the awesome opportunity and responsibility to  begin to live in a way that honours all as one on this beautiful blue-green planet. We are blessed to be living in the time of a global shift in consciousness.

Share the collective vision of "bringing forth an Environmentally Sustainable, Spiritually Fulfilling, Socially Just human presence on this planet." Wake up to find out that not only are we the eyes of the world, we are the world.

Wake up in love, in peace, as one.
