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.

Compassion Will Change the World

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Compassion is desperately missing from our evolving planet, and we’ll have to change this if we want to change the planet. We all know by now that we’ll have to be the change we want to see, and I think an important part of doing this is learning to express love and compassion to others.

Compassion and selflessness go hand-in-hand.

When we empty ourselves of the ego, we gravitate toward others in a big way. We begin to care about the plight of others instead of thinking solely about ourselves, and the inner love we start to feel enables us to be compassionate when we could otherwise care little about the things people around us are going through.

Oversoul Teachings Q&As: The ‘Tall White’ Extraterrestrials

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

Seek constant, daily alignment with spirit and the higher vibration you have the opportunity to feel and access, and you’ll never be without the greater perception so many of you seek.

When you live unflinchingly in the open heart space, your willingness and enthusiasm to contribute to your ongoing conscious revolution by producing as much and as pure spiritual work as you can grows to new heights and you never have any difficulty finding the spiritual/creative flow so many of you enjoy bringing through.

Seek open-mindedness and openheartedness throughout your daily existence, and do everything you can to make your lives and the lives of others easy, joyful and free-flowing. Continue reading

Music With Meaning – Matisyahu: King Without a Crown (Performed Live)

Wes: This is the second song I’ve shared from reggae artist Matisyahu, and it’s another great one that’s filled with wisdom and insight. In this song, we’re encouraged to see that we already have all of the spiritual power we could hope to and then some – we just have to open up and see it.

From the song: “If you’re already there, then there’s nowhere to go. if your cup’s already full, then it’s bound to overflow.”

I decided to share the live version, because Matisyahu performs very well live. Enjoy!

Wisdom With Wes: Producing Energy

Snapshot_20140731_2I mentioned a couple days ago that when we feel tired or depleted, the best thing we can do is rest and recuperate. Today, I want to go in the opposite direction and encourage us to use our depletion as a reason to become more active.

Sometimes, the best thing we can do really is to rest and allow our natural, vibrant energy to restore itself, but we don’t want to rest too often if we feel depleted routinely. Sometimes, we’ll have to produce as much energy as we can if we want to restore the vibrancy we’re used to having.

It goes without saying that we’re going to have days when we just don’t feel up for doing anything, but on some of these days, we can challenge ourselves and get active anyway.

In doing this, we’ll restore our greater energy and enthusiasm in the long term. We’ll be very glad we made an effort to get active instead of continuing to rest, and our energy will remain restored for a longer period of time. We might even increase it!

How do you choose to use your energy today?

Stay aware!

Archangel Gabriel via Marlene Swetlishoff: The Quality of Love Known as Transmutation

gabrielArchangel Gabriel: The Quality of Love Known as Transmutation, channeled by Marlene Swetlishoff, October 22, 2014, http://www.therainbowscribe.com | Thanks to Golden Age of Gaia.

Beloved Ones,

Let us have discourse on the quality of love known as transmutation.

This quality of love within a person comes into effect after great struggle within the depths of their soul to understand who they really are and what they truly stand for.

Transmutation begins when one awakens to one’s spiritual essence and discovers the spiritual path. Along the way, the individual who was identified with their outer persona through the body, emotions, and mind gradually becomes identified with their soul, their inner spiritual being.

Andrea Scully: What Goes Into Practicing Unconditional Love?

Love is all that matters

Love is all that matters

Written by Andrea Scully, The Golden Age of Gaia, October 23, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/knoohom

I woke this morning and had a short Skype chat with Steve Beckow, in which I was accused of being a practitioner of universal love (unconditional love).

My first response is to laugh, my second is to agree with the practice part implied by the word practitioner. I surely wouldn’t see myself as having this perfected, though I do see I’m well on my way to making the practice habitual.

I went on to read the article about proof he wrote You Proved It to Me. (1) This leads me to consider what exactly goes into this practice of universal or unconditional love. How do I do it? How do we do this?

The first thing that comes up with this consideration is intent. The level of love I can manage at any given time is taken to that level by my intent to do so. The quality and intensity of this love is directly proportional to my focus and where I’m choosing to place it. Continue reading

Lisa Gawlas: An Emerging Understanding


Written by Lisa Gawlas, The Shift of Time and Energy, October 23, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/pnjqtgg

What an incredible sight to behold you are.  What an amazing series of events, of understandings, that came thru the readings yesterday!!  I am also understanding so clearly why the ET’s have started their conscious movement towards you, their incarnate human friend/family.

This new hexagonal bubble of creation was perfected on another planet (which one/ones, was not revealed at all) and those of you who have the task of understanding how this super powered creational field/bubble works to the max have friends that are showing up to help you remember.

There are also, interdimensional Beings assisting too, beyond those incarnate on different planets, there are those that exist between the betweens (smile.) Continue reading
