PEACE & HARMONY
Our inner & outer worlds
Peace and harmony, the condition that so many people say that they desire. To be in a state of eternal peace, calm, balance and harmony within one’s self and with their seemingly external environment is the final destination so to speak for many. People may experience inner peace, but their outer world may look chaotic and vis versa, they may see outer peace in their environment yet their inner world is turbulent. How do these inner and outer worlds merge and are they even supposed too?
By in large we are a “collective of individuals” who are all at some level attempting to get their own needs and wants met, along with making a contribution to the collective in some way, i.e. making the world a better place through our presence and actions. Within these motivations and intentions we may feel like there is not enough of something (meaning our needs might not be met) so we run around in survival mode inside of our minds strategizing how we can make it all work so that we can survive. This perspective of scarcity is clearly not in congruence with inner peace. When we are stuck inside this perspective of scarcity, even if we have a million dollars in the bank and can logically see that this is plenty of money, we will continue to feel fear that we might not have enough. Here the disturbance lives inside of our own mind and we do not feel rested, calm or at peace even though the external world is abundant. These same disturbances can live in our outer world too. There may be something that appears to be a threat in our outer world, perhaps disrupting the environment and lives of others, while simultaneously we feel at complete peace and calm inside. Our inner state is unperturbed and not matching that of the outer world.
There is more often than not a congruence between our inner and outer worlds. The reason for this being that most individuals take their cue from their environment and/or project their inner state onto external circumstances. So if something appears to be bad in the outer world people will match that in their inner world and thus feel bad inside. The opposite goes as well, if someone wakes up in the morning and feels amazing, energized and fully vibrant then they will tend to project that onto their outer environment despite what might actually be appearing. This is how two people can look at the same thing and see it completely differently. This is also why it sometimes appears that people live in different worlds from each other, because in some ways they actually are living in different realities.
I personally believe that we are at a time in our evolution where this disparity will become increasingly and increasingly more evident. Where based on people’s chosen perspectives they will create outer worlds together that match their inner frequencies. It may even be that at some point that beings of slightly different frequencies may not be able to physically perceive each other anymore as the different frequencies band together creating more coherence within themselves as a collective of like frequency. Like waves riding on top of or parallel to each other with less and less mixed frequencies and more distinctly coherent and unified frequencies coming together. Literal parallel realities which have none or minimal interaction with each other as they offer completely different experiences. Again speaking from my personal perspective I believe this is similar to what happens in what we have come to call the death process. There is a different frequency in which the spirit of the body transitions into, which is why we can no longer see them, however they are very much still in existence just imperceptible to us from our current frequency. Death simply being a transition into the new. Some beings may pick another human body and reincarnate into a similar type of experience and others may have learned everything they came to learn/express and move into another frequency experience. Either way I see us on Earth, while embodied, making this transition collectively, some will be repeating this cycle and staying at the current frequency to learn/express more at this vibratory level, while others are ready for the next vibratory level of beingness.
COLLECTIVE TENDENCY TOWARDS DISHARMONY
Coming into right relationship with what is
Our current frequency or collective has a tendency towards disharmony. The prime reason for this being that we still perceive ourselves to be separate from our environment and from other people. This sets up the conditions of needing to live for a “me”, take care of a “me” and support a “me”. As long as the perspective of being an individual is primary we will also need to protect ourselves from perceived others including our perceived outer environment. This will bread more war, both outer and inner, as we will always have to defend ourselves from the evil thing, which in truth is just an aspect of ourselves, but we cannot perceive this if we continue to insist on the perspective of separation. So we will fight, protect, avoid and try to get rid of or stop certain things inside of the appearance because we fear the end of our personal, egocentric existence. In truth your small limited person centric consciousness cannot stop life from occurring. You can definitely attempt to hide your portion of the One that you are from life, avoid life, avoid certain people or experiences, however in the end its all included and at some point on your soul’s journey you will, you must, come face to face with everything you attempt to push away. This is how you will come to know your unity, your oneness will all. From the smallest microbe to the largest galaxy, you are one with it all.
Due to the fact that we do not intimately and undoubtedly know ourselves as One we do not know harmony. Harmony is an impossibility from the perception of separation. You see harmony is health. Health of our human body, health of our planet as the larger body, and even health of our universe as the One body. Most of us don’t think in scales this big, but instead only see ourselves as human(s) and maybe our planet as being important. However every action you take either physically or in consciousness has an impact on the entire universe.
In our healthcare system we call harmony homeostasis, however we only look at it from a physiologically perspective. If all of the chemical reports reveal the right ratios and numbers we think that is health. Never mind the investigation of where harmony comes from in the first place. To be in harmony is to be in right relationship with. This means to see all as extension of you. In this way you can come into right relationship with your cells, bacteria, viruses, cancers, and the myriad of other “afflictions” that can occur to this physical vehicle. Things are only afflictions if you are not in harmony. People fear because they do not see that they are the operator of this vehicle, that they can come into harmony with themselves and with everything else and thus see the effects of that that harmony play out through this human vehicle. Instead they feel the need to fight the foreign invader and fail to see how they can come into harmony with what is and produce health. When will we believe more in the power of peace and harmony than we do in the power of destruction, alienation, fighting and war?
All that is required is a change in belief. To see harmony as the power that it is. To believe in its power. To stop protecting ourselves from ourselves. To see ourselves in and as all. To see how coming into right relationship with what is is more powerful than resistance and fighting what is. To do so, to choose so, creates an entirely different outer world. This may seem too simple for some to believe. They want it to be harder, more complex, but really what they want is to hold onto their belief that destruction and war is what heals and creates harmony. They also want to continue to hold onto the belief that they are separate from their own body, from other humans, from plants, animals, insects, trees, dirt, bacteria, other worldly beings, other planets and the universe. They prefer the story line that they are alone in the universe and that life is solely up to them.
Life is not solely up to you and simultaneously you matter beyond infinity. Come to understand that you are part of one much larger beingness of which you have never been separate, you’ve only believed your separateness. Its just a belief, one that can be changed by you, through you. In opening your own mind to the possibility that separation is simply an illusion, just a veil or mask through which you’ve been looking through, you will come to see that you could never be separate from anything ever. What is possible is that you are connected in and as the source of all. Human consciousness on this planet is like a cancer in the universe believing itself to be separate from the whole of the universe. The universe is benevolent and is organized towards increasingly higher and higher orders of coherence, i.e. wholeness. It is time for the cancer of our consciousness to heal, to come into its knowingness of itself and reunite with its universal family remembering the power of peace and harmony.
