My wife took the following photos today (July 20, 2014), when we found a bunch of adorable kittens in our backyard. We don’t know if they have any owners, but they’re certainly photogenic.

Welcome – It’s Time For a New Paradigm

063-small1.jpg

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: Proudly Shining Your Light

Channeled through Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

When you can surrender the mind and ego to the flow of energy and information you’re being given from the higher realms, you’ll see that striving has never been inherently required to find the higher state of consciousness you seek.

You’ll see that little is required beyond the surrender of the lower facets of your consciousness that’d keep you held back forever if they were allowed, and you’ll see that simply retreating into the flow of higher-vibrational information/energy is among the best things you can do for yourselves.

Surrendering the mind and adopting the ability to live from a constant, loving space will help you make the flowing connections so many of you want to make, and after so long of finding and acting on these connections, they’ll eventually flow in an unprecedented way.

You’ll be able to pick up on the energies and impressions you’re being given with a degree of ease, because you’ll see that you are and have always been receptors for the energy of the divine. Continue reading

The Arcturians via Suzanne Lie: Morning Message – Returning To Your Multidimensional SELF

morningMorning Message from the Arcturians – Returning To Your Multidimensional SELF. Channelled by Suzanne Lie, July 27, 2014. http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.co.uk/ | Thanks to Golden Age of Gaia.

We are in the process of shifting our reality. We say “we,” as all dimensions, realities and worlds are shifting into a higher frequency of expression. As it is for the least, it is for the greatest.

Hence, as the third/fourth dimension releases itself from the shackles of “a reality based on illusion” and shifts into the fifth dimension the Light of “Cosmic Truth,” all the dimensions above the fifth also shift into their higher dimensional expression.

In order to make this shift there is a release, a letting go, of what has been your predominant expression of Self. Then your baseline, lowest dimensional expression of SELF, begins its return to your higher expressions of SELF. In the case of our human expressions, the third/fourth dimensions will gradually become less and less hospitable because you will be shifting into their fifth dimensional Lightbody.

You will find that, just as it once took effort to consciously experience your fifth dimension Lightbody, it will become increasingly difficult to consciously experience your third/fourth dimensional physical body. You will find that your consciousness appears to be wandering off into what feels to your physical Self as a trance-like state. Continue reading

Steve Beckow: Love the Recalcitrants Free

Reval 22Written by Steve Beckow, The Golden Age of Gaia, July 29, 2014

I’d like to return to the comments of a source I’m calling the Galactic Group on the Reval, the Illuminati, etc. because I found their viewpoint helpful, rarely heard, etc.

I’m maintaining the anonymity of the group because the channel, who’s well known (not Linda Dillon), does not want to become an Illuminati target.

The Reval is a part of Ascension, the Galactic Group says: “It will be a part of it. It will be the jumpstart, so to speak.”

The group observed that many light workers are living on the edge of poverty. And “living on the edge of survival is a welcome mat to the darkness.” Continue reading

Is Our DNA Mostly Junk? Study Says Only 8.2% of Human Genes are ‘Functional’

dna pink junk 263x164 Is Our DNA Mostly Junk? Study Says Only 8.2% of Human Genes are ‘Functional’Written by Christina Sarich, Natural Society, July 29, 2014 | Thanks to Awakening Daily.

(NaturalSociety) Just two years ago, scientists involved in the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) said that 80% of the human genome had some biochemical function, but a new study from Oxford University suggests that only 8.2% of human DNA does anything important. Is our ‘junk’ DNA really useless, or is there more to the story?

Many in the field of genetics have argued that the biochemical definition of ‘function’ was too broad, reminding us that just because an activity on DNA occurs, it doesn’t necessarily have a consequence. They suppose that for ‘functionality’ to occur, an activity on our DNA must matter. Continue reading

Charles Eisenstein: How to Enslave People With Addiction

War-on-Drugs picWritten by Charles Eisenstein, The Fix, Waking Times, July 29, 2014

Be it drugs, alcohol, porn, overeating or whatever your personal addiction, put an abuser in a playground and see what happens.

You’ve probably heard about those addiction studies with caged lab rats, in which the rats compulsively press the heroin dispensing lever again and again, even to the point of choosing it over food and starving themselves to death.

These studies seemed to imply some pretty disheartening things about human nature. Our basic biology is not to be trusted; the seeking of pleasure leads to disaster; one must therefore overcome biological desires through reason, education, and the inculcation of morals; those whose willpower or morals are weak must be controlled and corrected.

Lisa Gawlas: The Key To August Direct From Source to Your Heart!

key of opening

Written by Lisa Gawlas, The Shift of Time and Energy, July 29, 2014 | Thanks to Awakening Daily.

I wasn’t going to write a blog today, because until about 30 minutes ago, I really didn’t think I had anything to share, well, nothing I understood anywayz.  But with the grace of the mighty, loving universe we are in, I changed my mind because of a “global” visual they had given to me this morning.

Yesterday in the field of readings was literally an energetic wash out.  For every person I connected to, all I could see was incoming energy and nothing else.

All the energy was in my visual at the area we call our near future (which I have a feeling represented today.)  There was no grid, no other thing I could “see” that I could say it means… this.  Just a full on in pouring of energy waves and spirals.

My own self felt very spacy yesterday, like my brains went thru a full on memory dump the night before and were now being stretched like taffy, not allowing me to “see” beyond energy.  I was on the verge of complete exhaustion yesterday, most especially felt when I was connected to other people, once I disconnected, I was ok.

Krishnamurti Quotes: Contacting Fear

J. Krishnamurti Online, July 29, 2014 | Thanks to Awakening Daily.

There is physical fear. You know, when you see a snake, a wild animal, instinctively there is fear; that is a normal, healthy, natural fear. It is not fear, it is a desire to protect oneself, that is normal. But the psychological protection of oneself, that is, the desire to be always certain, breeds fear.

A mind that is seeking always to be certain is a dead mind, because there is no certainty in life, there is no permanency. When you come directly into contact with fear, there is a response of the nerves and all the rest of it. Then, when the mind is no longer escaping through words or through activity of any kind, there is no division between the observer and the thing observed as fear.

It is only the mind that is escaping that separates itself from fear. But when there is a direct contract with fear, there is no observer, there is no entity that says, “I am afraid.” So, the moment you are directly in contact with life, with anything, there is no division; it is this division that breeds competition, ambition, fear.

So what is important is not “how to be free of fear?” If you seek a way, a method, a system to be rid of fear, you will be everlastingly caught in fear.

But if you understand fear, which can only take place when you come directly in contact with it, as you are in contact with hunger, as you are directly in contact when you are threatened with losing your job, then you do something; only then will you find that all fear ceases;we mean all fear, not fear of this kind or of that kind.
