The current system is fracturing.
One of the great successes of the Occupy Movement, is that it’s brought very clearly into light, the systematic nature of inequity, injustice and plain control that is our society. I know many awakening people have found it hard to imagine a global conspiracy to manipulate both people and the earth’s natural resources, but as the evidence increasingly stacks up, it is no longer a question of whether it exists, but rather the extent to which it exists. Yes, we are witnessing an underlying agenda to shape world politics and economics to confine people to carefully configured lifestyles. This controlling conspiracy theory, although once relegated to the fringes of the awakening movement, has now become a central part of it. The two go hand in hand. To me this is a vitally important shift, and I believe it is already beginning to empower us to break apart the matrix we’re living in…
There are no taboos in Enlightenment
It’s felt to me, that within the mainstream Awakening Movement, the global conspiracy theory has so far been a taboo subject. Understandably, it feels like there’s been a yearning to depart all of this and co-create a new reality founded on unity, peace and harmony. But we can only get there if we’ve processed our own inner darkness first, we can’t simply sweep it under the carpet. It’s a fallacy to create rosy realities in our minds and deny the ‘real-world-matrix’ exists or else painting some thinly veiling veneer over it.
And so those who’ve focused on bringing the attempts by the ‘powers that be’ to create an even more controlling system, have really been relegated to the sidelines of this consciousness shift.
I believe the time has come to see the conspiracy theorists and awakening movement as two ends of the same spectrum.
I’d say what the awakening movement really needs now, is a healthy exploration of what’s truly going on ‘behind the scenes’. Likewise we need to learn from the mistakes of the conspiracy theorists: that to build resentment, anger and judgment is self limiting. If we can bring both movements together and explore without judging, it will empower us even more strongly – it will inspire a catalytic quantum shift. Why is that?
Firstly, I believe we can already see quite clearly how our shifts of consciousness into the higher paradigm have begun to break down this controlling consciousness. You can now see the cracks opening up. It began with the credit crunch of 2008. It is banking and big business that forms the bedrock of the global consumeristic machine. The system is of course founded on a fundamental fissure: the idea that a ready supply of oil, can be used to rampantly rape the earth’s natural resources (without consequence) and from that, fund a debt based monetary system to control the world population.
Increasingly awake people are realising that the way we live in society is unsustainable, the numbers simply don’t add up. And since all is consciousness, what we truly believe in our hearts has rippling effects through our outer world. That’s why the system is beginning to crack.
So simply by bringing what’s really happening out into clear day-light, can accelerate this quantum shift in consciousness. It will crack the fissures of the old world consciousness even wider apart.
Catalysing our karma
This brings me to my second point about how looking deeper into this controlling matrix is going to inspire an even greater shift. The outer world is shaped by our inner state of consciousness, we know that now. Our karma created the matrix in which we live. In my own heart, I know that happened because during earlier times on our planet, we’ve tried to shape and control Mother Earth in a way that wasn’t appropriate. We were always meant to live as one with Gaia, according to the natural flow of her eco-systems. So we’ve now drawn this “Opposing Consciousness” to us in order to expose our own inner demons – those of ignorance, greed and lack of divine trust (which results in control).
“One of the most powerful and wonderfully liberating things that’s happening right now in the Openhand Work, is that the catalysing consciousness we’re harnessing, is taking people directly into their past life karma, activating it, helping people process it, breaking the blocking energy down and then dissolving it out. But you can’t activate the karma unless you’re prepared to go there – unless you can summon the courage to confront your darkness.”
What’s happening right now, is that humanity’s darkness is coming increasingly into view through the outer mirror of society. To evolve, we need to accept that mirror as our own creation and to feel the pain once more. That way, we can liberate the lost fragments of soul – the ‘nuggets of gold’ – that have become buried in the sediment of life.
Reading the story within the story
I’d say what we really need to do, is to hone our ability to read the story within the story: to watch what’s happening on the world stage and interpret the actual underlying movements of consciousness. When we stop taking things at face value, or viewing events through the filter of our desires and resistances, then we all have a natural aptitude to do this.
So take for example the European Union right now and the increasing financial stress member states are experiencing. In my perspective on reality, it is certainly not aligned within a global, mutually supporting eco-system for one part to tell the other how to function and operate. Likewise, it makes no sense for detached Bureaucrats in Brussels to try to control the working lives of people in Ireland (for example) and to impose an ever more complex system of regulation.
It is freedom of expression which inspires hearts and minds not constriction and control. And so as we in Europe awaken more, and as we read the outer drama as the manifestation of our own consciousness, it can inspire us to strip away our own need to control our lives. As we summon increasing trust in the divine flow, this new consciousness unfolds its wings causing the chrysalis of control to fall away like a worn out skin. That’s why in my view, whatever immediate difficulty the collapse of the Euro may bring, it would signal a great success for the awakening movement.
The natural order of life
We need to summon courage. The polarity between light and dark – between trust and control – is growing ever stronger. Our destiny is one of greater liberation, of freedom of expression, and absolute trust in the divine order of life. More and more people are discovering this internally in ever greater measure. We’re lighting beacons of higher consciousness which are radiating through the matrix and starting to break it down.
We must keep going. The invitation is to look even deeper within, to confront and break up our own darkness as we feel it exposed by the outer mirror. In those reflections I can see an immediate future of growing discomfort, a pain that is necessary if humanity is to truly grow.
It is such friction that will break down the outdated order that no longer serves us. And out of the disorder this process generates, a new harmony will emerge that serves all. To me, that is the natural order of life itself, and one I am willing surrendered to.
About the Author
At the age of 40 Chris was involved in a life threatening car crash in which he thought he would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.
He found himself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. He began to remember his true reason for being here.
“During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.”
“This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright”.
Prior to the crash, Chris had a rich an varied professional career in industry, in teaching, as an Officer in the Army and finally as a web development entrepreneur before being initiated on his spiritual path. With a Masters Degree in Natural Sciences from Oxford University, participants in the work are finding his integration of grounded scientific understanding and profound spiritual realisation deeply engaging and transformative.
