Unlock Our Identities—LOVE
February 7, 2017
These days, I am doing my best to understand the great divide in this country—where did it come from and where are we going? It has been so hard for me to understand why folks vote “against their own self-interest.” And why they appear to be so dedicated to those billionaires that they feel will save them.
But guess what? It appears that we are all lulled into trust and inaction until we realized that we—all of us are threatened. That is our true humanity, our Unity of Human Spirit and Heart are being stolen from us to the extent that we allow that to happen. And I have been helped by Baba Siri Chand to see this whole machination as an opportunity to heal our Shadow—our collective Shadow—not just “THEIR” shadow, but MY shadow, OUR shadow, our COUNTRY’S shadow, and mostly our historical and current COLLECTIVE shadow.
You can read these most incisive commentaries yourself and test out the truth of them with your own experience, as well as feel from Soul whether or not they ring True to you. An incredible blog is by Jonna Ivin, called “I Know Why Poor Whites Chant Trump, Trump, Trump,” which is an experiential discovery coupled with an excellent evaluation of history at http://www.stirjournal.com/2016/04/01/i-know-why-poor-whites-chant-trump-trump-trump/ .
And the other is a wonderful book on collective “framing” of cultural identity and consequent outlook by George Lakoff called “Don’t Think of an Elephant.” http://amzn.to/2ld452K It helps us understand not only the conservative mindset, but the progressive as well. Understanding and compassion is what we as Light Workers are after, and definitely not blaming any “other”, which would take us right down into our hurting minds and emotions! You are truly better than that, Dear One.
In this quest, I have had to deal with my own pre-suppositions as well, and I invite you to do the same. I have been having a big conversation with Soul about what is REALLY going on. I feel that parsing all this out is an important way that we all can get to the very bottom or common factor—that of our common humanity, our shared Divinity within. This is a path of engaging great forgiveness and humility, letting go of our personal hurts, blaming, and divisions that we have picked up along the way, exploring the Truth to find our next step together on this road to full Aquarian realization. It is a primary way to truly discover an approach to open our hearts to one another to realize the Aquarian Dream of peace and love—safety, support and dignity for all.
Yes, can we lower our walls of maintaining power over each other, or becoming powerless by consciously giving up our habitual statements of “I am better/worse than they are.” That causes such division in our cultural thinking and identity—whether within our own group or towards other groups. That happens even in ashrams, and is called “spiritual ego.” Yogi Bhajan told us over and over again--“there is no high and no low.”
Imagine if we, each one, “took hold of our Golden Temple”—mind and body to live that freedom, which is in pure humility to the most sagacious, readily available and trustworthy guidance from our very God Self and insisted on kindly recognizing that spark of pure Consciousness within each other simply because we know it is there, even if they don’t. Giving joy and kindness, while anchored in Truth becomes our pure joy!
It is our only personal and joined salvation to live in the deepest compassion and commitment to never blame, but profoundly forgive these deeply held divisions that hide the Truth of One Heart; to stay rooted in our humble vulnerability. But at the same time, not be invaded, put down, or smashed. Rather go beyond the great smoke-screens produced by those who want to divide and conquer us all so that they can keep us distracted by fighting one another, while the ones “on the top,” who feed us lies of separation escape with all the spoils. These are some of the “top” or wealthiest 1 to 10%. Yes, this country is rigged by them so that the rest of us can be used for their own purposes—black, white, brown, red, or yellow!
It looks like the days of the Robber Barons are back, but with a global vengeance. And they have done this by miraculously convincing many that they are the gracious Papas taking care of our needs. Yikes!
Being obscenely rich and grabbing for more, rather than sharing through generous and worthy philanthropy is seen as affirmation from God that these folks who would take over others’ minds and prosperity are good and just, versus the rest of us—whether we identify as red or blue.
So, Sweet Ones, it is appearing that this is not actually a red/blue thing after all. But rather an enormously rich/poor thing, that set up outrageously strong lines of identity division, which at its root is a real crock! Back to one, joined human heart for the love and good of all. Yogi Bhajan always said that the spiritual path is one of changing our identity—that is real, practical knowledge, the everyday experience of living from and as your God Self, your Soul! This is the opposite of “holier than thou.” It means becoming absolutely authentic, with no identity walls hemming us in. It means that we live strictly from the flowing heart and rooted Truth within us. Cook and serve lungar (free meals) for everyone--everyone!
So, you see, this is a huge challenge for all of us to first let go of our old belief systems. No blaming or judging of others. NO GOSSIP! The ones who are inflicting and re-enforcing these judgmental divides are not just “them,” but all of us—starting with the proverbial and very real ME!
Let us serve and deeply love one another. That is the only way to shine the healing Light on the powerful Shadow. The love, the Light will dissolve the Shadow, just as Dorothy threw the bucket of water on the Wicked Witch of the North. Can you see the steam rising now?
Remember, stay in your heart and serve the hearts of what may appear to be “others.” But in fact, we are One! So, if and when you see or hear someone being hateful, or blaming or going on a nasty rant, don’t let that trigger you into fighting mode, hate, or hurt. Just immediately realize that the other person is in extreme and deep hurt, even though they may be very aggressive and angry. Immediately jump into strong, healing Heart Breath for them. www.SoulAnswer.com/heart_breath.html They will be affected by this healing energy in some way, but you surely will greatly benefit! It will bring you back to your core, firmly rooted in Mother Earth, stable, yet flowing in kindness and neutrality.
Jesus laid down the New Law two millennia ago. He said that the New Law is no longer an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, but rather “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and Love your neighbor as yourself," for the love of God!
Guru Nanak gave us “Nirbhao, Nirvair”, which is Without Fear, Without Revenge. Yogi Bhajan’s parting words were “Live FOR one another.” Remember, this doesn’t apply to just “our group,” but to everyone in every group! This is Universal Truth. This is the healing balm, the actual creative “stuff” or energy that has the capacity to change the world—even, or should I say, especially in these times of deep division. With the current great influx of Consciousness, if we but heed what is being transmitted from Soul to us, change for the miraculous happens. Baba Siri Chand has told us many times that if just 40% of us switched to Soul, our whole world culture would follow.
Serve the hearts of all kindly, simply and freely. Don’t blame or preach. Never get caught up in “my way or the highway,” or blaming someone for doing that—including the 1%. This is our sacred opportunity to just be simple, talk simple, love simple, without all the political identity “meshugas” or craziness. Be strong and creative in resisting oppression and lies to support the Truth, the shared heart! Laugh, dance, sing, create, and love often! I am sure that anyone in the Women’s Marches felt that. It wasn’t AGAINST, but FOR.
We can do this together; we can do this in Divine. This is where our personal and fused Destiny is joined. And we trust that as we live in this most simple habit of Soul, we will successfully arrive at the sweet fruits of the promised Aquarian Age!
