As strong oppositional lines were drawn recently in Charlottesville Virginia, social media was flooded with exposure to blatant prejudice and hatred. In our world of illusion, we’d prefer not to see the underbelly of our society in such public display. We’re more comfortable if it is hidden in small pockets of lesser towns and hills throughout the country.
One dictionary defines separation as “an act or instance of separating or the state of being separated.” Certainly, we might agree that is what was witnessed in Virginia. President Lincoln’s admonition of a country divided brings to mind the question, can we stand united in this time?
Metaphysically, for me, separation represents the veils of illusion of ourselves in form from our essence. Challenging as it may be to comprehend, I actually believe that we came here for the separation experience. I know, damn and double damn, as we are getting exactly that in spades lately.
Even our head of state is a polarizing figure that attracts hatred and admiration in any given day, or six months, as you will. He has thrown the political “pick up sticks” mightily in the air and laughed at the disarray as they fall. And many of us shake our collective heads in dismay as we witness strong lines of allegiance being drawn.
Those of us who would label our beliefs for life order as “spiritual,” are finding these savage lines at odds with our beliefs that a true world of light, peace, love and equity can exist. It can be rattling to the core then, to see hateful epitaphs spewed and marches with torches. In my view when I can see through this veil, I believe we are witnessing the phenomena of split worlds or contiguous Universes. We are manifesting the reality we desire.
How on earth can you say that? Depends on your point of view. Mine comes from two things: (a) the realization that awakened I can better see the veils of illusion and choose how I want to act and react; and (b) I have a faith that our beliefs create our reality. The latter follows along the lines of what was aspired for in events like the Harmonic Conversion, 11:11 Gateway; Harmonic Concordance; the Lionsgate Portal; and all of the prophetic sharing’s of many a year.
If this world is indeed an illusion, then where I place my magical attention is what I see. Some believe, and I support that belief, that the ultimate gift of this time will be split worlds: El Mundo Bueno and El Mundo Mal-the good and the not so good. Thus, as these many disturbing things unfold, we are even more motivated to err on the good side of things and return to beliefs that support that world. No more gray fence-sitting.
Does that mean we remain silent and just relate to the Virginia malevolent march as a ‘just is’ and do nothing? No! As long as these two worlds are connected, I feel we must speak out and yet magically maintain our core belief in the goodness of humanity. Yet we may also wish to remember to protest peacefully to keep ourselves registered for El Mundo Bueno.
The other side of our challenge is to connect, as we are able, with those on the side of history juxtaposed to ours and begin gentle dialogue. That may be more possible on a small one-on-one scale vs. a platform and megaphone. Meeting people in the middle, listening, and hearing what has brought them to their beliefs of this moment, may help us become more compassionate people. We would not expect to change their minds in this endeavor or we are acting just as separate as we judge them to be. The purpose would be to just see them through eyes of love. Perhaps being seen in the light may soften their positions of hate and prejudice; perhaps not. We will have tried.
Ultimately, we will be called to look through a magnifying glass at places where we are choosing separation. In that reflection, is the work we individually and collectively still have to do to prepare for El Mundo Bueno. See the other side of this time, through the portal of love and light. That sight will help all of us get through.
May Light and Love of that Creative Presence always surround you.
“In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.” Eckhart Tolle
