We often hear people shouting “Save the World” and declaring that they are going to “Change the World” with their ideas and products. Well intentioned though they may be, you can not change anyone or anything, save your Self.
And this is the message of the great Tao: to save the world, you must save your self; to change the world, you must change your self – first.
With this approach, if everybody were to ‘suddenly’ become Self responsible, rather than trying to tell and blame others apart from themselves that ‘they’ need to change (to fit their ideal view of how the world should be), we’d actually see a complete shift, and not one thing would have happened ‘out there’. No protests, no revolutions, no wars, nothing.
How is this possible, you might wonder? Simply by understanding one fundamental truth: you can’t change others, or more specifically, you can’t change how they see the world – their ‘Worldview’ – how they perceive life in other words, and hence what they believe and feel and their actions that flow therefrom.
This is where ‘free will’ comes in. Free will is a very misunderstood concept. It portends that you have free will to do as you wish, despite the flow of consequences from your actions. It suggests that life has no destiny, that we are simply a chaotic collection of random events. This is humorous when you really get awake to see enough of the bigger picture. Even ‘Brownian motion’ – that belief from a “Logic-Based” (Orange) scientific Worldview that atoms are all bouncing around without any rhyme or reason – is very myopic. Chaos ‘theory’ is from a vantage point that can’t see the forest for the trees, so it is no wonder everything looks as it does – from that vantage point it is chaos! Everything in the universe is highly ordered, you just haven’t yet, and these ‘limited viewpoint’ scientists haven’t yet, expanded out far enough to connect the dots that allow you to see the infinite order that is all around us. And this infinite order comes about because the universe(s) – yes, there as many of them as there are stars and planets because its all one infinitely endless fractal – are of one infinite consciousness that is Self aware at any moment at any point throughout ALL of it. When you fully surrender into this infinite oneness, your whole life changes, as you ‘get’ that there is nothing to be done! This is destiny; the past, present and future have a grand order; and this order is toward wholeness.
This is why you can’t change the world, because the world is made up of a collection of Worldviews – each one an individual Soul on a journey of coming into wholeness in their own way and in their own time. And because there is no time, they have as long as it takes. The universe as infinite consciousness is expressing itself in an infinite array of experiences we are each exampling. Some are more limited and some are more expanded of the ‘whole’. The ‘mean’ of these (at this moment on planet earth) are what currently make up the ‘gravity’ of our present collective consciousness.
What those who are trying to change the world are aiming to achieve is to ‘force’ others to see the world as they see it, experience the world as they experience it, and change their habits and beliefs to those habits and beliefs they ‘believe’ are better for others – and us collectively – if only the others knew better. I admit to having been guilty of this and that is why I can write about it – we ALL have been guilty of it and most still are! And maybe you are right… however, when you get sufficiently expanded you realize that right and wrong are also relative, so who are you to judge? It’s their Soul’s expression after all, and we are infinite and immortal and its all just the universe expressing itself anyway…
Does this mean we are to just give up trying? Just throw in the towel and go lay on the beach? Well, that might not be a bad start, because at least it puts you down the true path – the path of surrender. Then what happens? Eventually, you come to understand the message of the great sages and teachers throughout time. The message that you can lead a horse to water, but you can not ‘force’ it to drink. It has to drink of its own ‘free will’.
And this brings up the world we currently find ourselves in, a world where a cabal of elites under the Vatican does their utmost to force us to drink through submission, coercion, Wizard-of-Oz-like fear mongering in every medium known, threats, intimidation, and on and on. The formula is working less and less as more and more people are waking up, so now they keep turning up the heat higher and higher – increasing the number of false flag attacks, mass gun violence shootings, escalating the poisoning of the air, water and food, and on and on – everything short of just outright killing everyone off! But then, that would not be much fun for them, they need us to submit of our own ‘free will’ to their ego of power and dominance of law to get the full psychopathic satisfaction they crave.
And then there are those well meaning Souls on the other ‘pillar’ trying to tell us how we should be behaving and acting, if we want to have a good life. Those with radical viewpoints and fundamentalist beliefs are also using fear and limited victim consciousness to assuage others with guilt and shame and pride and a long list of means to get them to bend their will to ‘their way’ or the proverbial highway.
So how do you ‘touch’, ‘move’ and ‘inspire’ (fill with spirit within) others to come around to your way of thinking – or more correctly, perceiving reality as you do? First, a horse will flat out not drink from a place of fear, so that tactic is not going to get you very far. That leaves the only way the world ever shifts, changes or evolves – from love. Love may be ‘tough’, as the Hindu Goddess Kali examples, but it is fierce love none the less. Second, you must ‘be the change’ you wish to see in the world. Are you someone I’d look up to, feel loving desire to emulate? Many ‘gurus’ that think they are models of change are largely, when you pull back far enough, causing motivation not from positive attraction, but from, again, the negative consequence of what might become of you if you don’t get on the bus. For example, most people, who are in a place of ‘separation’ consciousness from their infinite I AM Self of abundance, are always afraid of having money enough to survive. This of course perpetuates a cycle of contraction and fear, thus becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.
These people – the majority in our present paradigm, flock to ‘get rich’ gurus, teachers and schemes to calm their fear. This of course makes these charlatans rich, but that is not by example – quite the opposite. It is playing off someone else’s fear. It is therefore a form of coercion and force; but as we know, there are no victims, only those with limited awareness. And you could say this is ‘bad’, but as we’ve said, there is no such thing as bad or good, only the presence of something – like love – or its absence, in this case ‘fear’ is what is left in someone who is cut off from the true Source of their life – their infinite well of consciousness I AM. Yet it is perfect of course, it is what they came here to learn this time around, that they eventually learn THEY are the money, that THEY are EVERYTHING – I AM that I AM!
If someone were to truly be a model of success in life, they would have already made themselves by ‘Being’ their ‘Gift’ in the world, and sharing with others how they too can be their Gift, as each of us has a unique expression in this infinite tapestry. That comes from empowerment and love. It comes from a knowing of surplus, not scarcity.
When you speak of a way of seeing life as infinite, abundant without scarcity, full of love and joy; where there is no death – only life; where there is no fear – only love; where there is no limitation and scarcity – only abundance; would that perception be attractive to you? Would you choose to have “what s/he’s having”? I know I would. When the horse finally feels in its HEART (because the mind is so easily and cleverly deceived) the knowing of choice born of love, coherence with all of life, in unity and wholeness with infinite consciousness, it will then freely drink. And this is the heart of Sovereignty: are you freely drinking? Or are you in some mode of reaction to fear because you’ve disconnected in some way from the infinite consciousness you are?
You can’t change others, so you can’t change the world, but you can change your Self, expand how you perceive life from a place of infinite consciousness that sees Beauty where ever you look, because everything is whole, perfect and complete in its order. You can ‘be the change’ you wish to see in the world, and by expressing your Self, ‘touch’, ‘move’, and ‘inspire’ others to choose that in their Hearts and in their lives.
So in the final analysis, there is nothing to change in the world, nothing to be saved – there is only how you see it all. That is ascension. Freedom is the vantage point of infinite consciousness’ perfection. Freedom is BEINGHOOD.
