A New Earth – Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

I believe in the amazing power of books. There are books that can transport you to magical places and reawaken your imagination, there are books that can give you comfort and peace when you most need it, and then, there are books that can totally shake your world and open up a whole new spectrum into your life; it is one of the latter kind that I want to share with you today.

A New Earth

I have just finished reading A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle. The author of The Power of Now has done it again… totally opened up my mind to a new dimension, and I am so thankful for it.

This book is not for everyone, you have to be in a specific place in your life and in your spiritual journey in order to make sense of this book, but it is definitely worth a try, if anything, just to see where you are in this journey!

The premise of this book is that we all have one single inner purpose in our lifetime, and that is: Awakening to our true nature. Once that inner purpose is realized, then we can have many successful outer purposes (what we do and what we achieve during our human life), but none of these outer purposes will be really meaningful nor fulfilling unless we first realize our inner purpose.

I have copied an excerpt below that I feel gives a good idea of what this book is about:

“As soon as you rise above mere survival, the question of meaning and purpose becomes of paramount importance in your life. Many people feel caught up in the routines of daily living that seem to deprive their life of significance. Some believe life is passing them by or has passed them by already. Others feel severely restricted by the demands of their job and supporting a family or by their financial or living situation. Some are consumed by acute stress, others by acute boredom. Some are lost in frantic doing; others are lost in stagnation. Many people long for the freedom and expansion that prosperity promises. Others already enjoy the relative freedom that comes with prosperity and discover that even that is not enough to endow their lives with meaning. There is no substitute for finding true purpose. But the true or primary purpose of your life cannot be found on the outer level. It does not concern what you do but what you are – that is to say, your state of consciousness.”

Nothing we do, whether it is working, parenting, socializing, making love, etc. has true and real meaning unless we have awaken to our inner purpose, only then, every moment of our human lives will be meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of what it is.

I hope I have triggered your curiosity and you decide to look at this book because it is a real Gem!

Have a Great Week!

Moving into the 4th dimension… Is this the evolutionary leap? (Part II)

This post was previously posted on: 2baware.net

So, as promised, here is the second part of my post started last week. Before you read any further, if you did not read last week’s post, I recommend you do it first. Read last week’s post

awakeningto4thdimension

Ok, so lets move on to the exciting realm of the 4th dimension!

The 4th dimension (in the context of this post, that is) is a stage of higher awareness (or consciousness) that many human beings are already experiencing, to various degrees. Many more are having the opportunity to realize its presence, which is the first step towards experiencing it.

I once heard an interesting phrase: “The human journey is one that will take us from Animal stage to God stage” in other words from unconsciousness to pure consciousness, and it seems like we are getting closer to the latter.

Consciousness can also be called: The Universe, The Source, The Life Force, All that Is, even God. However, the name we give it is not really important, because no word can really describe it, but since we communicate through language, we need to name it somehow.

What I mean by consciousness is basically the experience of our true essence and reality. Note that I use the word experience, as opposed to knowledge, because consciousness is not a concept that could be grasped by our intellect, our thinking mind, or our rationale; it can ONLY be experienced.

Now that we are clear about what I mean by Consciousness, we can say that at a higher dimension of consciousness, we will start to experience certain things, that are qualities of that dimension. This said, everybody is on his/her own journey, so the intensity to which we may experience it is unique to every individual.

At this point in our world, the 3rd and 4th dimensions are overlapping, so we are all at a different point in this transition. However, we are all being influenced by cosmic energies that are speeding up the shift and stimulating our perceptions, so there is now a greater chance to move forward towards the 4th dimension faster, but sadly, not everybody is ready nor willing to do it. So, what are the qualities of the 4th dimension?

Qualities of the 4th Dimension:

  1. Time disappears, there is no more past and future, there is only the NOW
    This means that we let go of the illusion of psychological time and we enter eternity as: the ETERNAL NOW, which is all that really exists. Although we may still use time as a frame of reference for practical purposes, and to navigate our physical existence, we will drop all emotional charges from the past and all fearful projections into the future. Past and future will no longer have any bearing on our decisions and actions, we will therefore be free to act on what is real and true.If you would like to read more about this concept, I highly recommend Eckart Tolle’s book: The Power of Now, which explains this in great detail.
  2. We move into Introspection
    People are forced to look inside themselves to find the causes or their suffering, they will realize that the answers can only come from the inside and not the outside. This is a journey into our inner beings, our souls, our deepest essence and it will allow us to see what we are really made of. At the same time, it will highly decrease negative feelings/emotions toward the outside world, such as blame, anger, fear, guilt, etc.
  3. We move towards Oneness and Co-creation
    We feel true Oneness with all that exists, our sense of duality fades and that gives us enormous power to co-create. We are more able to feel compassion and to always work in cooperation with others, as opposed to in competition. We have the true realization that everybody is connected as one, so we act on what is best for all.
  4. We have Choice, we are Free!
    We realize that we have control over our thoughts, our emotions and our fears, so we are not slaves to them anymore. We move from reaction to response, which gives us great peace and freedom. We start living by design and not by default.
  5. We attune more to the Light and less to the Darkness
    We will become more sensitive to negative energies, and we will avoid them instinctively, for instance, we will have less tolerance for violent movies or images, we will be less willing to engage in negative conversations, etc. we will gear more towards clean and positive energies and people.

So as you can see, all the qualities of the 4th dimension are rather positive, there is nothing to be afraid of, on the counter, there is so much to look forward to! However, this is only if we are able to LET GO of negative patterns that are keeping us bound to the 3rd dimension, and sometimes letting go can be scary. So, this ends my post on the 4th Dimension and the Evolutionary Leap.

Have a great week!

Moving into the 4th dimension… Is this the evolutionary leap? (Part I)

This post was previously posted on: 2baware.net

Here is an interesting theory that I find quite fascinating and thought-provoking…

universe

According to some currents of thought, we are on the brink of a major evolutionary leap, we are living in an era of incredible change that affects our species as well as the rest of the world. The fact that our species is at the very center of this leap is not a coincidence.

With the arrival of human kind and the higher levels of development it presented, compared to other animal species, history has seen increasing levels of sophistication that started with language systems, survival skills, etc. Humans have completely transformed their environment in a short period of time. Humans have, unknowingly accelerated the rate at which the earth and its own species is evolving.

So basically, by changing our environment so dramatically, we are also changing our own species at a much deeper level than we can imagine, by the incredible advances of science on one end and spirituality on the other, we are starting to move into a deeper level of understanding of this world, which in turn is bringing our species into a deeper level of consciousness, therefore a different energetic vibration, that most likely will change our human existence.

This last statement brings me to the title of this post: Moving into the 4th dimension… Is this the evolutionary leap?

There are different dimensions of consciousness or awakening if you may. We are now leaving the 3rd dimension and entering a 4th dimension. This is a collective phenomena and it is happening to all humanity. Not everybody is ready for this shift, however, but it is already happening and it is inevitable.

We are running out of time to remain in the 3rd dimension, by resisting this shift we are creating unnecessary pain and suffering individually and collectively. It is therefore important to be aware of this universal transformation, so we can be part of it and experience it fluidly, without fear, without effort. This is an incredibly exciting and wonderful time to be alive, but if we remain “stuck” in the 3rd dimension, we may experience a lot of suffering and confusion during this transition.

Ok, so I hope you are not too weirded out by now, I found a great article that explains what the 3rd dimension is (What Do You Mean the 3rd Dimension Is Going Away? By Jim Self) here it is:

“The third dimension (3D) is a box of rigid beliefs, more or less, with a relatively inflexible set of rules and limitations. Most of us have been living in this box for generations past, so we tend to think it is the only way available to us. One of the rigid 3D beliefs that structure our lives (our thinking and feeling and actions) is linear time.

Linear time is an optional belief on past and a future. Because this belief is the default assumption of mass 3D consciousness, and events seem to validate the belief, most of us think and act as if it’s true.

So the structure of time is quite specific (and limiting) in the 3rd dimension, but your experience of time is quite different (and empowering) as you move into higher dimensions.

The 3rd dimension also offers no possibility of choice. We don’t choose our thoughts, feelings, and actions in every moment, instead we react from unconscious beliefs and training to the people and situations that pop up in our space.

Duality provides another rigid structure for 3D experience. Up/down. Left/right. Should/shouldn’t. We have become very fearful as a way of life, and in that fear we have learned to narrowly define good and bad, right and wrong, etc. Unconscious judgment permeates 3D thinking.

Moreover, we perceive our 3D experience predominantly with the left hemisphere of the brain, home of the rational mind, and so we use only about 5 to 10 percent of the brain’s capacity to play the 3D game. Most of us suspect the rest of our brain must do something but have no idea what it actually does and how it functions.

In fact, what the rest of the brain enables us to do is function in the higher 4th and 5th dimensions, and beyond.

We already have the potential, all the necessary equipment and wiring, right now, to be fully conscious in all these dimensions. But our habits of thinking and feeling, grooved over many lifetimes, dumbs- us down and limit us to 3D experience. Our left-brain, rational mind only knows what it knows, and doesn’t know what it does’’t know, and it works tirelessly to keep us within a thin range of objective 3D thinking and possibilities.

The increasing light energies and frequencies of the Shift are rewiring our brains to allow us access to a much wider range of information and possibility than is available in the 3rd dimension.”

If you are curious to know what the 4th dimension is and what we can expect from it, don’t miss my next post!

Have a great week!

Change the Dream

A few days ago I came across a very interesting story that I would like to reflect on today.

The story I read was about the Ashuar, an indigenous group from the rainforest of my home country Ecuador. This group reached out to environmentalist groups and global activists in order to transmit their message to our civilized world (if we can call it that…)

These people believe that our civilized world has created a reality based on a collective dream, a dream that has become a nightmare and is affecting the entire planet, it may even drive our human race to its collapse. And, according to the Ashuar: “The world is as you dream it.”

In their view, we live in “the dream of more”: more factories, more companies, more houses, more cars, more of everything, and according to them “we can’t really change our everyday actions because at their root, will always be the dream we have of our future and we will always act consistent with that dream. However, the dream itself can be changed in the space of one generation and the time to do it is now” (source: The Soul of Money – Lynne Twist)

The way I interpret the meaning of “dream” in the context of the Ashuar’s message, is the equivalent to our beliefs, the ways we see the world and the assumptions we make as a society. This “dream” is not necessarily true, but it drives our lives and the way we act on others and on our planet. To me the “dream of more” represents materialism, the culture of money and overall the capitalist system that now rules most of the world.

Also, in this message I find an interesting parallel to the law of attraction that states that what you focus on and give your attention to (whether is good or bad for you) will manifest in your life. Aside form our individual focus and attention, we also have a collective focus (or dream), a collective set of beliefs that brings about the world we live in. Our “dream” therefore is our deep seated beliefs about life, that have been around for many generations and have become the norm, most people don’t even question them at all, it is what it is and it rules our lives and our social systems.

But what IF we started to question it? what if we tried to detach ourselves from this collective dream?

Each and every one of us is part of this dream and we have an individual responsibility to change it if we want to survive as a race and live a more fulfilling life. As the Ashuar say, we can’t truly change our actions unless we start by changing the dream and we can, one individual at a time.

Our own journey into the realization of this dream is very important because it will contribute to a greater change, it will bring a positive shift on our societies.

To me this message rings true and it gives me hope, hope that there are enough people in this world that are raising to a higher level of awareness and they can help others move into it, hope that this message will spread so that there will be more and more people questioning the current dream we live in.
