However there do appear
to be some delineations that we can identify and hopefully learn
from. Similar to a ladder, the two poles clearly point upward, but
we need intermittent rungs between them in order to make progress
one step at a time.
Maybe this is more a collective phenomenon we experience individually yet concurrently, I don't know. That's a kind of chicken or the egg type of paradox.
But just as we encounter
similar localized weather challenges, we do seem to share the
influence of so many factors in this planetary experience.
Funny how we tend to be so goal and outcome oriented.
Like life is a problem to
be solved instead of something simply to be experienced, as the
Yet the external
experience subsequently changes in sympathetic vibration to our
perceptive awareness. Again, paradoxical in nature essentially,
which doesn't make any sense according to the low level thinking we
were conditioned with.
If you think about just
those discoveries it should alter the entire world view of humanity,
it's approach to science, philosophy, spirituality and most of all
day to day living.
The sages of all time have said the same things in various ways.
It's been in plain sight
The overall spiritual
milieu is so charged with tricky cling-ons of egoic attachments of
every sort it can feel like flying thru an asteroid belt of velcro
balls just waiting to latch on to whatever they can. That's actually
good for us, as whatever "sticks" and distracts or upsets us is
always a mirror, something to learn about our inner corresponding
velcro and to release.
Judgment is a very clever
prankster. It self-righteously points out faults and issues in
others it thinks it sees oh so clearly while exalting the ego of the
observer. Lots of stuff works like that.
Dualism is just part of
the overall, as there is a unified consciousness that supersedes any
mental conceptualization and inherently connects us all.
Enough theory and mental chatter, shifting is all about living in a so-called higher dimension, if you will.
Although again, language
and word encapsulations don't do any of this justice, something we
all will continue to run up against more and more as the shift takes
Where we derive our inspiration and learning from can come from anywhere. In this information age where we can find youtubes, articles and podcasts about almost anything under the sun, it can be quite the minefield.
It takes a lot of
discernment, but that grows as we learn to find what resonates and
We're all on individual learning curves. I find this broad brushing of anything conveniently labeled as "new age" is really stunting a lot of peoples' growth. This goes for any categorizing for personal convenience.
It's usually born out of fear and ignorance of the unknown and very easy to do.
Sure the new age movement was co-opted to a large degree, but the truth still gets out. So was the awakening of the 60's and today's alternative information and research "movement", if you can call it that.
But right there
"movement" has a collective tag and freeze frames mental
It only tracks past events.
Only imagination and spirit led understanding and aware perception can really grasp the essentials. It's so much like settled science, tracking and mapping and dissecting in an effort to get the mind "around" things for a sense of control and egoic superiority.
It always points back to the same thing...
We have to let go of all
that. It's interesting and may bring some understanding, but more
than anything it should inspire awe and wonder and a humbling sense
of being part of such a wondrous natural experience that we all

changes can be good in some aspects, but more than anything they're
deceptive - as if a slow reformation will somehow fix the existing
It's that new, that
different, and totally breaks from any sense of self, the biggest
hurdle to overcome.
We of course can still enjoy the amazing experience here, but without ignorance or attachment to it.
It's not escaping, it's
living our fullness in remembrance of who we are while enjoying the
gift of this strange vacation-land, school of higher learning, and
When we really see that it loses its power and eventually can no longer exist, once it's served its function in teaching us and we let our fascination for it go. Until we do it will continue on.
This is why many talk
into 5-D while the others continue
to learn in 3-D or however you want to conceptualize it. In some
fashion we can move on while the others continue to learn what they
It reminds me of how the subconscious can't hear negatives, so bombastic pronunciations against things only affirms what we are saying not to do.
Dualism is a very tricky
construct if we don't see it for what it is. So much is embedded in
language. Handle with loving care.
