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.

Who is Ra? – Part 15: Streaming Energy and First/Second Density – Part 1/2

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Previously, we learned about the pyramids and the manner in which healing, rejuvenating energy was funneled through them to the seekers who wanted to find enlightenment.

We learned that they’re placed at precise points to align with the energy that pours into the earth, and here, we’ll continue to learn about them and a few other topics that are related to this streaming energy.

Ra’s known for talking a lot about the pyramids and the energy we can access and use to help heal/enlighten others, and if we’re particularly open or receptive, we can tap into this energy and use it for a wealth of purposes. Personally, I use it to enhance my creativity.

There are much more direct ways to use it, of course, and the more we tap into it, the more we’ll feel and benefit from it. Continue reading

Meaningful Music – Flobots: Rise

Wes: I’m not sure if I’ve shared this song from conscious rap group ‘Flobots’ here before, but even if I have, it’s a great song that everyone deserves to hear twice. The message is obvious – together, we can arise and create a new world that’s free of the influence of the corrupt elitist forces who strive to keep us under their control.

We’re free, spiritual beings, but we have to reclaim our freedoms as a united people before the world can be liberated. Enjoy!

Youth in Revolt: America Rises Up Against Police State and Drug War

Written by Nick Bernabe, The Anti Media, November 26, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/jwrn2dz

(TheAntiMedia) Young people are tired of the police state that America has transformed into following the passage of the Patriot Act. The true implications of the Patriot Act, which was passed following the 9/11 attacks, are now being showcased in Ferguson, MO and all over the country in a small town near you.

Militarized police forces that see the US public as the enemy now have the weapons to wage war on American streets.

This militarized mentality has spread among the police thanks to the post-9/11 all-encompassing national security state that the U.S. has become. Every move is recorded by the NSA, police locking people away for victimless crimes, cops gunning unarmed people down in the street; these are all symptoms of authoritarianism. Continue reading

Wisdom with Wes: Raising our Vibration with Creativity

Snapshot_20140731_2No matter what we do that’s intended to uplift others, we’ll want to make sure we do it with love.

The purpose of our existence here on earth is to use our creativity or anything else that inspires us to raise the collective vibration, and I think the best way to do this is to incorporate love and centeredness into everything we do.

The ego strives to control the outcome of everything. I won’t be the first to say that if we’re rooted in the ego, we’ll strive to control our fate in a way that doesn’t respect our natural manifestation abilities or the importance of letting our future take shape while still defining it for ourselves without being overbearing.

We’re here to use whatever inspires us to help awaken and uplift people, and I think we should keep this in mind when we strive to produce something we want to be ‘good’.

The ego’s comfortable expressing irrational judgments and expectations, especially when it comes to our creative work, so we’ll want to detach and let whatever creativity comes out of us flow through with as little influence from the ego or the mind in general as possible.

I’ve said plenty of times that the mind’s a great thing – we just have to know how to use it properly and opening it is one of the best ways to use it, in my opinion. Other people have said that ‘the mind only works when it’s open’ and with everything we do, I think we’ll want to remember to incorporate love and open-mindedness.

The collective vibration will raise when we can use our creativity to help ourselves and everyone else find a higher state of consciousness, and when we look back on this wild earthly ride, we’ll be glad we enjoyed our creativity as opposed to endlessly striving to ‘perfect’ it.

How will you approach your creativity today?

Stay aware!

Graham Dewyea: Falling off the Higher-Dimensional Bandwagon


Written by Graham Dewyea, The Golden Age of Gaia, November 27, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/l53xfl5

Something happened to me the last couple of days. I went to a place I’ve not been in awhile.

I felt grumpy and short tempered. I was floundering in what wasn’t going right in my life. I didn’t feel good in my body and was emotionally eating.

I felt disconnected – disconnected to myself, to others, and to source. I had low energy. I felt deeply unsatisfied.

Suffice it to say, I felt really cruddy. Continue reading

Steve Beckow: We’re Exploring Nova Earth

Another thing the Bellingham Meet-Up did was to make a useful and clarifying distinction around meet-ups themselves. And here I credit Cyndy.

Until that point I had been seeing meet-ups as a transitional phenomenon. People came together, shared and met and then “progressed onto” project groups.

But Cyndy pointed out that many people want what the meet-up offers – the cameraderie, companionshiop, sharing, and so on – and wouldn’t be interested in seeing it diverted in another direction. Continue reading
