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 Q&As: The Spiritual Significance of Hypnosis

With all of the inexplicably pure love you now have the potential to feel, you have little reason to continuously turn to the ego or go out of your way to feed or stimulate it.

You’re spiritual beings who are just beginning to rediscover your innate spirituality and the immensely important things you’re on the earth to do, and while we understand and empathize with the fact that you’ll fall short of your potential or the expectations you’ve set for yourselves every now and then, we still encourage you to stick to the paths you’ve forged for yourselves as much and as often as you can.

You obviously aren’t on the earth to be perfect, but as many of you are learning, the more you feed the ego, the more you’ll be pulled into its universe.

An ego-filled universe is a universe of strife, difficulty and depletion, and we’re confident that you’re each ready to anchor and adopt a new way of life that transcends the wants and desires of the ego and embraces the love you can now access. Continue reading

Wisdom With Wes: Resiliently Spreading Positive Energy

Snapshot_20140731_2The main purpose of our existence on this beautiful planet is to spread the positive energy we’re here to use to uplift humanity.

When we can remember that keeping our vibration high is more important than any momentary goal or issue we’re experiencing, we’ll navigate our lives much more easily and our positive influence will spread to everyone who could otherwise be easily taken down by the pains and stresses that come with living on earth.

Strength, empowerment and resilience will always be important, and it helps to keep in mind why we need to embody these qualities: so we can shine our light, free of any worries or concerns about the drama that competes for our attention.

We’re here to uplift ourselves and everyone around us, and even when we’re embroiled in conflict, we can keep in mind that we’re meant to spread a good vibration instead of endlessly fighting and hating each other.

Let’s allow love to become far more prevalent than we have so far, and let’s invite everyone else on this evolving world to do the same.

How do you choose to express your love today?

Stay aware!

Kathleen W: On the Road

As Steve and I continue our trip listening to and speaking with lightworkers down and up the west coast of the United States, we’re continually amazed. The deep heart sharing of life stories and spiritual journeys in town after town is phenomenal.

At the beginning of our trip it was individuals who were stepping forward to visit with us. The transition to groups gathering to speak happened seamlessly, first in San Diego, then Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Mount Shasta and Ashland. Continue reading

I said earlier that I’m not in the habit of naming the names of people we visit with or recounting what they said. That’s so that the next people we meet don’t recoil in terror when we approach for fear of appearing on the blog.

But I can summarize some of the things we’re seeing. And show you some of the people we met.

But before I do, I have to acknowledge that the opinion I formed of the places we’ve visited where I said I met uniformly happy and amicable people was … well, battered a bit by an incident in one major city. Continue reading

Steve Strong: Could Mysterious Engravings of Ancient Egyptians in Australia Rewrite our History?

Ayers Rock AustraliaWritten by Steve Strong, New Dawn, Waking Times, October 21, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/pu4os29

Until receiving a phone call from Nina Angelo (OAM), I knew nothing of neither the struggles involved in protecting the land around Kariong (near Gosford) nor that part of this land was now on the market. When on-site I had seen a lot of tagged trees, and a for sale sign somewhere along a main road, but being unfamiliar with the whole region, nothing registered.

The land for sale contains the Gosford Glyphs, located near Kariong, about 60 km north of Sydney. This site features little known carved ‘ancient Egyptian’ hieroglyphs that were brought to light by various researchers in past decades. Continue reading

Humor – Lawrence Howard: Getting the Most Out of New Age Conferences

SLC-crowd_0

Note from Wes: This post seems half supportive and half critical of ‘new age’ conferences and speakers (it makes more sense if it’s read from a sarcastic perspective).

The theme expressed here seems to be that these conferences/speakers will take away our empowerment if we let them, and it goes without saying that we should never seek upliftment or enlightenment from another person, especially if they only want to sell us a product.

Read with discernment, and get some laughs out of it like I did. Most of all, always keep in mind that self-empowerment is very important – especially when it comes to anything ‘new agey’.

Expos and fairs are a nice place to meet and learn from speakers from new age movement. I’ve attended about ½ dozen of these events and noticed a recurring pattern and thought of a means to maximize the benefit from them. Continue reading
