Welcome – It’s Time For a New Paradigm


Hello, and welcome to this blog. Here, you’ll find articles and discussions related to a new paradigm in human consciousness in understanding, and in this introductory writing, I’ll give my perspective on this paradigm.

On a lot of spiritual and alternative news blogs, you’ll hear talk about a ‘new paradigm’ – a standard of living that’s outside of the confines of our social norms.

A growing number of people are ready to move beyond our old, division-fueled ways and welcome a new way of life that integrates unity, harmony, and an understanding of our oneness, and this drives our continual discussion about the things we can do to bring our planet into the light and move beyond the written and unwritten social rules that keep us from acting on our greater potential.

A ‘new paradigm’ is essentially what the name suggests – a method of functioning that turns us away from things that have hurt our world in favor of a more harmonious and sustainable collective lifestyle.

People are striving to bring the new paradigm about with endless work that’s intended to inform and uplift humanity into a position of creating the planetary change we want to see, and the goal is for more and more people to start working for the greater development of our society as the entire world becomes aware.

We’re standing up to the forces who strive to keep us in the dark, and in doing so, we’re welcoming and anchoring a new social standard that treats every person equally, rather than catering to the few and leaving the rest to struggle to survive.

People who recognize that a large percentage of the planet has been left to deal with ridiculous circumstances that are caused by poverty are doing everything they can to address and fix the conditions most of humanity has been forced to live under, because they’re ready to start healing this massive and ongoing neglect.

We’re starting to understand that we are and have always been one consciousness, and we’re striving to awaken everyone else to this and myriad other important truths in an effort to fashion the manner in which we run our planet around a widespread understanding of our oneness.

Imagine a way of life rooted in peace, love, respect, and service. Imagine a world where division and the self-serving mindset have been replaced with the understanding that we’re one creator consciousness experiencing itself and, as a result, everyone works together to repair this planet and keep it in a healthy, stable condition.

A world where the ‘every man for himself’ mindset has been replaced with an immense collective drive to make sure everyone can get ahead in life. A world where everyone lives comfortably above the poverty line, because the wealth that’s been amassed by the few has been put back in the hands of the many where it’s always belonged.

A world where competition is replaced with the drive to work together in every way, and no person is forced to go without. This is what the new paradigm will entail, and it goes without saying that all of these amazing things can’t just happen on their own.

This appealing new paradigm can’t just manifest with the snap of a finger – we have to actively pursue it if we want to see it. As great as all of these ideas sound, I think they’re basically worthless if we don’t start taking real and solid action to bring them about.

One person can only do so much on their own, and when it comes down to it, all of humanity will need to be ready and willing to construct a new paradigm if we want to change anything. I could make predictions about what a new world will be like all day, but they mean little if effort isn’t made to achieve them.

Reading about a new paradigm is nice, but I have a feeling that working together to bring it about will be much nicer. Imagine the unity that’ll be bred from coming together and respecting our perceived ‘differences’ instead of bickering over them like children.

Imagine being able to work harmoniously with your neighbor, his neighbor, and everyone else who strives to act on the inspiration they feel to change the manner in which this planet has functioned. Imagine the satisfaction we’ll each feel when we lay our heads down at night with the knowledge that we’re completely transforming this planet on a widespread, collective level.

This can become much more than a fantasy that sounds nice – it can become our reality. Right here, right now. We simply have to be willing to take the steps that are needed to move from point A to point B. Point A is, of course, the paradigm we’re currently rooted in, and point B is the utopian paradigm we want to establish.

We have a lot of work to do to get to point B, but the sooner we start this work, the sooner we’ll reach our ultimate destination. A new paradigm is only the beginning, and once we’ve built the society of our dreams, we’ll branch out and explore new planets; new states of consciousness; new realms of understanding.

And we’ll do it all as a unit.

When we grasp just how close we are with one another and just how much we’re meant to work together, our drive to use our unity for good will be stronger than it’s ever been before. Most people still can’t even fathom the idea of working together, much less harmoniously building a new world, but this’ll change as we continue to get active.

Those of you who were led to this article must have some desire to change the planet or welcome a new way of life, and however much you might disagree with what I’m about to say, you can. You can start changing the world right now. Whether it’s easy or difficult, you can start taking the first steps to bring people together and transform our planet and society.

In my opinion, it’s essential for anyone who wants to see a new world to start doing anything and everything they can to bring it about. The more people who are working, the more our influence will spread, and every one of you who reads this can feel free to explore your passions and what you can do to raise consciousness and bring humanity into the light.

You can pursue whatever avenue works for you, and you’re encouraged to have fun with it – to be creative. One of the aspects of a new, spiritually rooted paradigm is a society of people who are able to follow their greatest creative passions, so feel free to pursue the creative ventures that work best for you.

It’s been said elsewhere that we’re creators by nature. Creating things and expressing ourselves is what we do. It’s one of our missions here on earth. As such, you can feel free to pursue creative ventures that excite you over ones that don’t.

Pursue something you enjoy with all of the enthusiasm you can muster up, and if it doesn’t seem to work for you after a while, pursue something else that will. Like I said, have fun with it. Challenge yourselves and really develop your creative, awareness-raising abilities, because they’re essential to our creation of the new paradigm we want to see.

If everyone passionately developed their abilities and challenged themselves in a way that’s intended to help raise consciousness, the planetary vibration would grow immensely.

Eventually, every person would be able to pursue their passions in the name of raising awareness and restoring the earth to the pristine condition it was once in, and nobody would hold themselves back by pursuing things that don’t fill them with the invigoration we’re all meant to feel.

Openhearted creativity would replace the dullness that currently permeates life on earth, and everyone would be excited to change this planet with creative efforts that they can really enjoy. This is the kind of life we’re all meant to live, in my opinion, but it can’t happen if we don’t make it happen.

We’re really only asked to pursue things we’ve always wanted to do in the name of the progression of humanity, and when you think about it, that doesn’t sound like a very tall order. You want me to do something I already enjoy doing anyway? Sounds great!

Given that we’re meant to enjoy whatever we do to bring humanity into the light, what’s stopping us from doing exactly that? You’re all encouraged to find the talent or craft you enjoy and use it to help awaken humanity, and it’s interesting to think that pursuing our passion is so important to humanity’s development and evolution.

Having fun in a way that utilizes our creative abilities and awakens others is all we’re tasked with doing, and eventually, our efforts in doing so will motivate the rest of the planet to take the steps needed to transform our society and enjoy ourselves doing it.

Let’s individually take these first steps now, fellow seekers, because the planet can’t change without us. We can’t enter a new paradigm if we don’t make an effort, but we’ll be able to enjoy the efforts we make and appreciate the social standard we’ll set for ourselves.

Needless to say, it’ll be very different from our current standard, and I, for one, can’t wait to do everything I can to bring it about. How do you feel about changing the planet? What are you passionate about doing to raise humanity’s awareness?

Feel free to leave a comment about your world-changing passions below, because an essential aspect of changing the planet is changing it as a community. The hope is for this blog to become a community where like-minded seekers can talk about the creation of a new world, and I sincerely appreciate your visit. Thanks for being a part of our new paradigm.

Oversoul Teachings Q&As: A Permanent Home and Healing Exhaustion – Part 2/2

Concluded from Part 1

(Continued from question #1)

You were once a part of a great and prosperous higher-vibrational civilization that still prospers just as much as they did when you were with them, and you’ll eventually return to this place when you’re back in the higher realms and you’ve enjoyed your higher-vibrational earthly experience enough to branch out and see what other planets and galaxies have to offer.

You aren’t alone in this, and there are waves of seekers who seem to have difficulty securing a permanent living space. The general message that the earth isn’t your true home is being conveyed to every seeker who experiences this, but we don’t want to generalize your experiences because everyone’s path is unique.

We’ll encourage you to simply go with the flow, as we encouraged at the beginning of this message, because you’ll only meet with difficulty and unhappiness if you resist. You’ll eventually be led to a home that’s right for you, and until then, we wholeheartedly encourage you to cozy up to the lightwork you’re on the earth to do.

Now, we’ll move on to our next question. Continue reading

The Hunger For Spirit Grows

Credit: Chakra Center

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

I don’t know about any of you, but my hunger for spirit is growing these days. I feel more driven than ever to produce as much spiritually inspired material as I can, because I’ve reached a stage where my creativity actually provides a meditative ‘high’.

Some musicians will tell you that their music seems to provide a sense of natural upliftment, and writing/channeling have provided this for me lately. Channeling always did in a sense, but the messages seem to be getting purer and more direct than ever before and my meditations during and after each session reflect this.

I’ve reached a stage that most creative people probably strive to reach, and I get the sense that as long as I stay committed to writing/channeling each day, the flow (and the good vibrations that come with it) isn’t going anywhere. In fact, I think it’s going to expand. Continue reading

Stop finding reasons to complain or worry, and see the possibilities that are everywhere. Make the choice to enjoy who you are, where you are, as you are, and the best of those possibilities will open up to you. Don’t look for reasons to judge, look for things to enjoy. Decide to focus on the beauty that exists in every moment, in every place.

My second son turns 24 today.  He has become and continues to evolve into an amazing young man.  I marvel at his growth, his choices and how he stands for his beliefs.  Yesterday we met up in town for a bit.  I wanted to give him more than I could at the time.

I came home to create this list of lessons and suggestions for living authentically reaching his favorite number of 37.  Happy birthday, my darling son!  Life is truly magical and inspiring.  I can get messy at times but it’s so worth the ride.  Thank you for continuously teaching me so much about myself.  I love you, baby!

1. Don’t let anyone step on your thoughts, dreams or passion.

2. Creativity is sign language from the Divine. Read great books, write your heart out, be moved by films, be touched by music, create from a place that’s raw and awesome. Continue reading

By 2025, half the kids born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with autism, according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She, like many others says autism isn’t just genetic – it is almost surely due to environmental factors. Just a couple of those factors are Monsanto’s RoundUp (glyphosate) and heavy exposure to a cocktail of heavy metals, including aluminum. Continue reading

Pao L. Chang: 5 Ways to Increase Your Spiritual Awareness

Flickr - Consciousness2 - h.koppdelaneyWritten by Pao L. Chang, Guest for Waking Times, September 15, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/ouu8q3y

Many of us seem to think that being spiritual means we have to be religious. Just because you aren’t directly affiliated with a specific religion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to be more spiritual. The whole concept of spiritual awareness isn’t all about connecting with a higher divine power, but also connecting with nature and yourself.

Once you have established this connection, you will see life from a whole different perspective. People with a highly developed sense of spiritual awareness are often less prone to depression, addiction, manipulation, and control. In addition, they generally understand what it means to be truly happy. Continue reading

In the first-ever gathering of the world’s leading whistleblowers, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden and journalist Glenn Greenwald joined internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom to discuss threats to privacy worldwide.

The whistleblowers came out in support of Dotcom’s campaign against unaccountable surveillance by the NZ government, at an event to promote Dotcom’s Internet party at upcoming elections.

“We share the same prosecutor,’ Assange told Dotcom, referring to attempts by authorities in Washington to extradite both men to face charges in the United States.

Assange accused the US of trying to enforce its laws worldwide. By trying to control other countries’ law enforcement systems, the US is “annexing other countries,” the whistleblower said. Continue reading
