The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness

by Owen Waters

Love is the saving grace of all of humanity. We contact this primal energy in our finest moments. From the moment a baby is born, it is enshrouded in the unselfish love of its mother. From the moment a person springs into action to save others from peril, their own thoughts of survival are 'overlighted' by the love and caring that shines from their heart.

When a person dies and reviews their life, they see that one thing that mattered the most: Love. Pure, unadulterated, unconditional love. It is the source of compassion. It is the energy of caring for others. It is the binding force which holds together the entire universe, and it flows through you whenever you simply allow it.

Love is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. It is through activation of the spiritual heart that we pass into a whole new world of expansion and joy. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we find peace, bliss, and continual inspiration. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we expand our view of life to see the issues that are important to the soul. We can then see how love can heal and how we can and should spend the time to spread a little more love in the world every day, even if it is simply done in silent prayer for the well-being of others.

Let your heart open to love each and every day. Start the day in meditation and prayer for the healing and well-being of others and you will invoke a beautiful flow of natural energy through yourself. It truly is a great way to start each day because it sets the tone and the energy flow for the day.

When you are attuned to the natural flow of love throughout the universe, you then feel the natural flow of energy within your own universe. Your senses of insight and timing develop to help you achieve more and to succeed easily at the tasks that are important to you.

The flow of love is critical to life. Without the love of the Divine Mother which fills the universe, nothing would exist. For centuries, humankind has been playing a game where love and inner inspiration have been blocked off and ignored. Today, the tide is turning and people are opening up to this wonderful flow of natural energy.

Remember the love within, especially when outer circumstances seem dark. Remember that love is the gateway to the higher realms of consciousness where answers can be found to meet every challenge that life presents.

Tune into love. It will never let you down. Instead, it will set your spirit free to explore the realms of consciousness which offer greater vistas of awareness, greater peace of mind, and the sense of ever-present joy.

The Age of Uncertainty by Daniel Pinchbeck

Recently, I have taken as my personal mantra the not very transcendent phrase, "I don't know." The list of things I feel unsure about seems to be steadily increasing. For instance, I don't know if our solipsistic species will survive much longer, and sometimes I am not even sure how much I care. I don't know if Barack Obama is a warm-hearted leader who will unite people at a time of adversity, or the most brilliant puppet ever put forth by the New World Order conspirators (who, as radio journalist and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones suggests, may be plotting a program of rapid depopulation). I don't know if the increase in UFO sightings means we are approaching a benevolent contact experience or a horrific predatory ambush. I don't know if global warming is mainly caused by human action, or if it is part of a phase transition of the entire solar system, as the Russian scientist Dmitriev proposes.

I don't know if men and women should be monogamous or if it is better to be bonobo-like in one's erotic habits. I don't know if we will develop some type of new energy technology that will rescue us from Peak Oil, or if we are destined to see industrial civilization devolve and disintegrate as fossil fuel becomes scarce. I don't know whether to learn to grow food and harvest rainwater or to master some weird new esoteric discipline like Vortex Healing or Keylontic Science. I don't know if free will exists, or if we are conditioned robots, performing an illusory spectacle scripted by Hindu deities or dreamtime ancestors. I don't know if we should get rid of religions or create a really cool new one.

I don't know whether to stockpile gold or create an intentional community. I don't know whether to stay in Manhattan or head for the hills. I don't know whether we are approaching global enlightenment or regressing into barbarism. I don't know whether biotechnology and nanotechnology will fuse to give us immortal physical bodies or if we will all croak as our mistreated planet falls apart. I don't know if anything special will happen on December 21, 2012. I don't know if I should start a riot or throw a party. I don't know whether to panic or relax.

Something seems to be happening that is beyond my capacity to understand or articulate. I can only assume other people are feeling this way as well. We are witnessing the collapse of the old, rigidified structures, while the new hasn't come into realization yet -- that is, if there is going to be a new anything. A change seems to be happening at the level of logic, which is becoming less dualistic, less "either-or," and more binary, "both-and." Former diametric opposites are moving toward confluence, as well as dissonance, in various areas: Like tweaked out psychonauts, the physicists at CERN discuss opening portals into other dimensions. As the financial system evaporates, incredible new gizmos like Pandora and Cool Iris spread freely on the Internet. Obama references Chicago 1968 in his acceptance speech at Grant Park, then hires as his economic advisers the guys who, under Clinton, deregulated the banking system, causing the current disaster.

Reality is becoming more improvisational and up-tempo. Although I don't pretend to have certainty about it, the ideas that Jose Arguelles, Terence McKenna and others have proposed about time speeding up and going through ever-faster fractal spirals of historical pantomime -- including, alas, the mass suffering usually caused by historical convulsions - seem increasingly on the mark. If we are shifting away from dualistic separation and linear logic to a binary thought marked by polarities, this also suggests a shift from the modern historical perspective to a revived mythological consciousness. Like processes in the unconscious, myth resolves oppositions through symbol and image, without need of rational explanation. A society that reintegrates mythic thought at a deeper level of awareness will be able to handle seemingly contradictory perspectives without breaking down.

Transition to New Consciousness

Dearest Beloved Ones,

A new time is upon us, which requires new ways of thought, new actions and new responses to situations. It is important to understand that all physical manifestation on the Earth is the result of divine thought, divine intention and divine energy. Though objects, people and buildings appear solid and unchanging, in reality they are alive with the dance of light, vibration and the constant movement of atoms, molecules, electrons, energies, and physical/non-physical particles which form the spiritual building blocks of physical reality.

Beloved ones, the growing light on the Earth requires a new awareness of yourself and of how energies, thoughts and emotions flow both within your own being and amongst people. Most people have learned to identify with their emotional states, or with their life roles, or with the work they do, or with their beliefs, or with their relationships. "I am a parent" "I am anxious" "I am a tax attorney" "I am disabled" and so forth, are ways of relating to oneself that were developed during humanity's exploration of separated, individuated consciousness. Now, as humanity moves into a new direction of integration, wholeness, and unity, it becomes possible to experience a deeper understanding of who you are, beyond the roles, relationships, ideas and concepts that you may have previously identified with.

Beloved ones, you are so much more than you believe you are. Underneath the humble and seemingly ordinary face of your daily life experience lies a treasure trove of spiritual jewels, waiting to be revealed. The growing light on the Earth is already beginning to transform consciousness, so there is no need to "try" to see what God is revealing to you. Rather, what is needed is the willingness to be flexible in your consciousness, and to un-hinge yourself from daily habits of thought, word and action that create separation from life and separation from others.

When you release yourself from habitual actions and thoughts, life opens in a miraculous way. The present moment with its infinite dance of possibilities, beckons forth new qualities from within you, and asks only that you be present and aware. It is not necessary to practice this, but rather to allow it. Sometimes a change in your daily schedule can create more space for this possibility, but the awareness can be brought to any moment, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. As you open to this awareness, which is at the fundamental root of who you are as a spiritual being, new possibilities arise that can transform even the most entrenched situations.

Solutions to so many of the practical challenges of today's world are in existence and already present within the collective consciousness of humanity. What is needed is for humanity to release habitual roles and forms of consciousness, so that the larger collective spiritual awareness can be revealed, which contains the inspirations and solutions that are so desperately needed. Many souls have already started down this path, and have created a spiritual pathway of consciousness that others can follow. You can begin to awaken by making a choice to do so, which will begin to attract the situations, people and supports that will help you.

The more people who choose to open their consciousness to spiritual reality, the more rapidly the larger collective body of humanity can awaken and discover the solutions to the many practical problems of today's world. The challenges facing today's world cannot be solved by actions alone, but by a collective shift in consciousness and vibration. The momentum towards this larger transformational shift is accelerating, and your part in this transition is essential. Each individual has a huge impact on the whole, and your choices and actions can open a pathway of light for others.

For some souls it may feel like you are being swept along in a strong current without a life preserver right now. The process of purification is greatly amplified, and you may find yourself with sudden bouts of negativity, fear, despair or emotional suffering. Despite your best efforts, you may find yourself at times unable to contain these energies, so that you end up acting in ways that do not match your soul's intentions. It is deeply important at this time that you create a supportive environment for yourself so that you have a way to process what is happening for yourself internally, and so that you have the space in your life to be able to release negative energies in ways that do not adversely affect other souls.

Beloved ones, the support and light that will carry you to the next phase of this new time are already present and available to you. By allowing yourself to be fully present in this new time, all that you need will be made available to you, and you will be guided and supported in your journey. New supports are being created that will support this transition, and we recommend your participation in the Art of Being Present which will open new pathways vibrationally in your consciousness to allow this transition. We bless your presence on the Earth and in this new time. Amen.
