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: Hierarchies and Contact With ‘Grey’ Extraterrestrials – Part 2/2

Channeled through Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness, Oversoul Teachings

Concluded from Part 1

With the subject of hierarchies and spiritual royalty addressed, we’ll move on to our next question.

Question #2: Contact With the Greys?

“This is more of a personal question but a little while ago I had a conscious ‘dream’ of contact with the Greys [grey extraterrestrials]. I’m wondering if that was ‘real; and if any future conscious contact will occur in this reality?”

The subject of the ‘grey’ extraterrestrials can be difficult, because negative factions of this race have worked with your cabal for decades.

They offered advanced technologies, some of which are very familiar to you today and some of which are very warlike, in exchange for permission to perform abductions, cattle mutilations, and myriad other things that, in your society’s eyes, originate in the imaginations of ‘crazy’ people or people who make up stories.

The Ferguson Riots: Addressing and Ending Social/Economic Division – Part 1/2

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

“Today they say that we are free, only to be chained in poverty.” – Bob Marley

It’s crazy to think that all of the mayhem in Ferguson is happening just twenty minutes from my neighborhood.

A short drive away from Alton, IL, rioting and looting is taking place because of the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager, which has once again put America’s (and the world’s) attention on race and the unfair divide between the advantaged and the disadvantaged.

People are making it clear that they’re ready for a change, and they’ve been protesting in an effort to put the spotlight on the issues at hand – namely, economic division and police brutality.

Like some people (including Russell Brand) have said, we can probably expect more of this as the planetary consciousness continues to rise. People are awakening from their slumber, and they’re taking responsibility for showing the world that a change needs made.

We’re all ready for positive change, but most people aren’t comfortable enough rising up and actually doing something about it. The peaceful protesters in Ferguson are doing something the rest of the world should be doing, and social action will always be a driving force to the creation of direct and widespread change.

Heavenletters: In the Field of Oneness

Heavenletters: “In the Field of Oneness” Channeled through Gloria Wendroff, Heavenletters.org, August 21, 2014

God said:

Despite all the surface differences among My children, despite even all the interior differences between My children, there is an indefinable core that connects. It is called Oneness.

Every single person leads a life different from every other. All possibilities exist within each child of Mine at the same time that there is an irrefutable Oneness, a bond in common, a power of Oneness, a ringing of Oneness, a beauty of Oneness. In this Field of Oneness, all barriers break down. Well, they do not break down. They simply aren’t. Continue reading

David G. Arenson: Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let It Begin With Me

peace-song-700x333Written by David G. Arenson, The Master Shift, August 20, 2014

With war and strife being broadcast on the airwaves with wild abandon, it would seem that the end of days is nigh. Yet what if the very opposite was true?

What if the negative eruption was merely a prelude to peace? What if the storm we are seeing is a final explosion of strife before the calm of dawn emanates its serene message?

A new age is emerging from the dust of conflict. Arising from the embers of destruction is an end to war. It is the final days of dismemberment of and disembodiment of the sacred temple which is the human being and our radiant earth.

The powers of control that have held us hostage and hijacked our freedom, are weakening. It is only through vile propaganda, fear-mongering and hate-speech that war can be prolonged. It will not last. It cannot continue in perpetuity. It is simply not in our nature. Continue reading

Paul Fassa: Marijuana Helps Reverse Woman’s Crohn’s Disease, Replaces Pharmaceuticals

marijuana cannabis plants 263x164 Marijuana Helps Reverse Womans Crohns Disease, Replaces PharmaceuticalsWritten by Paul Fassa, Natural Society, August 20, 2014

As research and the desire for human rights continue to escalate, more and more states are allowing its citizens to utilizing the healing properties of marijuana. As far as rights go, anyone should have access to this plant. But let’s not forget how this vilified substance was able to rid cancer from people’s bodies and halt ‘untreatable’ seizures in children. Now, it’s time to hear how marijuana was able to help one woman overcome Crohn’s disease.

A Little About Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s Disease is affecting more and more in North America, and its debilitating effects are usually underestimated. It’s beyond acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and even ulcerative colitis. Crohn’s sufferers often undergo a few or more operations and suffer through several different pharmaceuticals. And they still aren’t cured. Continue reading

Matthew Butler: How Materialism Posing as Mysticism Limits Consciousness and Subverts Spirituality

MaterialismWritten by Matthew Butler, Guest for Waking Times, August 20, 2014

The law of attraction is a wildly-popular modern mystical belief hyped as the secret to fulfilling your every desire. It has big celebrity endorsements, and commercial products rehashing its claims sell in abundance. But beneath the glossy facade there’s often an agenda pushing egocentrism and greed in metaphysical garb, which limits consciousness and subverts spirituality for shallow materialistic ends.

Many spiritual traditions have arisen throughout history and although they have their differences, a common recurring principle is that greed and spirituality don’t mix. Renowned spiritual teachers like Jesus or Buddha did not promote greed in their teachings or lifestyle – quite the opposite: they showed that greed and egocentrism had to be overcome.

Greed has been seen in many spiritual traditions as an obstacle or trap that prevents us from understanding and fulfilling a higher purpose to life. Because it makes us selfish and obsessed with transient things, it has long been taught that renouncing selfish desires, and selflessly helping others to do the same, is necessary to attain salvation or liberation.

Graham Dewyea – The Dream: Our Unfolding Greatness

me 8-18-14

Written by Graham Dewyea, The Golden Age of Gaia, August 20, 2014

My ex wife recently said to me, “I wish you ‘enough.’”

I knew exactly what she meant. She’s viewed me as a person who can’t seem to be satisfied with what is.

I appreciate and understand this viewpoint, and others have shared similar sentiments. As I scroll back through the years, I think of a family member, who told me to “get off my (expletive) high horse,” or a friend who said, “Graham, you expect too much.”

The truth is, I know what’s possible for us and for the world, and it’s far greater than what we’ve experienced here on the planet. I feel it – deeply. Sure, there are moments when I feel discouraged when it seems that we’re not making progress or it feels too hard, but if I get centered and quiet, I connect with a vision – a dream that I’ve held for years.

I remember twenty years ago getting really excited talking with others about a more peaceful, loving planet, where all thrive. There was something deep within me that knew it was possible, and my belief and excitement were unshakable, even though my utopian vision was scoffed at and tossed aside as nice, but something that could never be attained.
