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.

Ferguson: Peaceful Protests vs. Chaotic Riots

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

As most of you probably know by now, the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown (Darren Wilson) won’t face any charges, and this has obviously sparked passionate protests, rioting, etc. It’s Tuesday morning as I write this (the morning after the verdict was announced) and depending on who you listen to, things either seem optimistic or awful.

We’ve heard about some of the destructive things rioters have done, like setting fire to shops and even private residences. There’s a store in West Florissant my wife and I like to go to with family, and it’s reportedly been burned. Continue reading

And so it is that we once again would like to take the opportunity to connect with you all in this more formal manner if you will, or rather, by way of words, in addition to the countless less visual ways of information that we utilize to connect with each and every one of you.

For by now, you are all becoming quite well versed in the ability to tune into the more “silent ” ways of communication, the ones that are merely vibrations instead of going by way of a human’s head, hands and eyes and in through your eyes, mind and heart by way of your electronic equipment.

Meaningful Music – Linkin Park: The Messenger

Wes: I shared the song ‘Iridescent’ from Linkin Park a few days ago, and I thought I’d share this song from the same album (A Thousand Suns) entitled ‘The Messenger). This is another song from them that’s helped me through hard times, and I hope it helps some of you out there too. Enjoy!

Wisdom With Wes: Creating from the Mind (or from the Source)

Snapshot_20140731_2When we connect with our inner source of spirituality and creativity, we transcend the mind and its constant worries and distractions. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the mind – it’s how we use it that counts.

The mind can be used progressively, but it can also spell our undoing if we aren’t careful.

It might go without saying that the best way to use the mind is to transcend its influence and fade deep into our sacred center, which will work through the mind to offer us the creative inspiration we use to produce our spiritually inspired work.

Lately, I’m learning that we can either create directly from the mind as we open it slightly to receive creative inspiration from our sacred center, or we can close our eyes, sit back and access this center more deeply, thus allowing it to, again, work through the mind and produce work that’s more flowingly inspired by spirit.

We each contain a wealth of links to our inner realms, but we have to open our minds and utilize these connections to see just what they have to offer.

I can say from experience that it feels great to create with the mind in both ways (creating directly from it vs. opening it and creating from the sacred center), but no matter how we use it, we’ll want to make sure we don’t let its woes and perils distract us from our mission.

We have a lot of spiritually inspired things to do, but we can only do them if we use the mind the way it’s intended to be used – as an instrument for the expression of our consciousness, awareness, and creativity

The mind will hold us back if we let it, so let’s refuse to give into the ego’s overearing influence and continuously embrace our spirituality and the creativity we’re here to present ot the rest of the world.

Will you use your mind today, or will you let it use you?

Stay aware!

Hanna Bier: The Key to Building the Life You Want

fall-wallpaper-25

Written by Hanna Bier, The Master Shift, November 25, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/pnjwpse

Ooooh yes, the time of mapping out the future, making new commitments and looking back at what we’ve accomplished is here. I love fall and the winter time for exactly that reason: new beginnings.

Just like the trees let go of their leaves and get ready for deep introspection only to birth new beauty in spring, so do humans transition through the phase of darkness.

The thing is, not everybody is aware of it enough to use this time constructively. Winter blues? Sleepiness? Desire for spring? News Year’s resolutions? Continue reading

Christina Sarich: 4 Tips on Juicing Cannabis for Better Health

marijuanaWritten by Christina Sarich, Natural Society, November 25, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/op68x8v

Did you know you can juice cannabis without getting ‘stoned’ and enjoy all the benefits that are inherent in this incredible plant?

“If cannabis were discovered in an Amazon rain forest today, I think people would be clamoring to make as much use as they could of all the potential benefits of the plant, I think unfortunately it carries with it, a long history of being a persecuted plant.” ~ Donald I. Abrams, Chief Hematology Oncology.

Cannabis is actually a vegetable, prior to human interference, and has ’34 million’ years of evolution that can be seen as a dietary essential that helps our cells function the best way they can. Cannabis can prevent depression, seizures, and cancer, and it is a medicinal plant that can be added to your green-juices and smoothies to boost their nutritional power for overall health.

Zen Gardner: Thinking Outside the Hourglass

hourglassWritten by Zen Gardner, Guest for Waking Times, November 25, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/qfnllo4

This imposed artificial time constraint is a very subtle one, especially when you realize everything depends on perspective. We’re clearly experiencing a manipulated, illusory cycle of time with parameters that make us feel contained, limited. And that’s the intent. Closing in on your prey is an ingrained predatory behavior. If the subjects feel there’s no escape, compliant behavior will eventually follow. Continue reading
