On the brink

light_upon-the-gloom

Welcome to the energies of 2020. As if on cue, the new year and decade have arrived with the clarion call for Change. Due to the immense influx of cosmic light which blasted Earth at the end of last year, it has brought both the energies of light and of darkness into high relief. America’s warmongers, led by the president’s lunatic decision to have the military kill one of Iran’s highest military leaders has led the United States to the brink of a full out war with Iran. Echoes of the year 2001, when the war dogs became ravenous and created an immensely tragic war with Iraq, are present in the atmosphere once more. War. It’s presence on our planet has been a constant for more millennia than history can tell. At this pivotal moment for humanity, it has smelled yet another opportunity to feast upon human flesh and blood, to wreak destruction and havoc, and to siphon yet more resources that could go towards our common Good into its gaping, hideous jaws.

There are those who believe we are living through biblical prophesies. That the years we’ve gone through and are now facing are the Great Tribulation. That Armageddon is right here and now on Earth. Looking at the daily news cycle, it is clear that humanity is certainly going through unprecedented hard times, chaotic energies, ongoing emergencies, wars, and basically all manner of hell. The energies of chaos and disruption are heavy, dense, dark and oppressive. How can we humans cope in the face of all that?

Dear Readers, I am simply one more human being trying, like you, to manage as best as I can through all the density and gloom. For my own sanity and self-care, I turn to the masters who walked the path before me. Many people came to Earth and faced equally horrific and terrifying situations and gave us road maps for how to traverse through the most difficult of journeys. In fact, every culture on our planet has its heroes and brave, noble, peace-loving souls. The ones who persevered in spite of the most dire of circumstances. The ones who held their inner light as strongly as humanly possible and shone that soul light out into the darkness. Although most left their human forms long ago, their light still shines because that is what the light of divinity does. It is an eternal fire and cannot be destroyed. The other great gift these masters gave us is the lesson that we each carry that same soul light within us, and have the same exact power to wield it before those who would destroy it and us. Gandhi implored us to Be the Light and the Change. So did Martin Luther King. So did countless other leaders of the Way, the Truth and the Life. Buddha, Jesus, Krisna, Quan Yin, Mother Mary, all the Dali Lamas, all the holy people of each age. No matter what your spiritual beliefs may be, nor what part of the world your ancestors are from, the real truth of human beings is that we are not separate from one another, nor from nature, nor from our spiritual roots in the higher, divine realms.

As the current, insane world leaders attempt their latest rendition of shock, awe and destroy so they can continue to reap the profits from war racketeering and human misery, it is IMPERATIVE for us—the ones who are reading, the ones who are feeling the exhaustion, the ones who are pleading peace—to daily hold our Light on high and SHINE OUT into the world. Blast your light as wide and as far as you possibly can, dear Readers! Because we are now into a New Era on Earth/ Gaia, when each one’s light is their greatest strength and weapon to defeat the darkness. The time is now and you are exactly where you need to be. Conquer fear through shining your lovelight upon it. And don’t let anyone cover your light. You are incredibly important to the unfolding of what is to come. Stay calm, and remember to breathe into the news of each unfolding event. Keep breathing and shining your light. Keep going.

XR Rebels across the planet

Dear Readers, can you feel the excitement in the air? In case you haven’t seen it on the news media (and chances are good you won’t), #ExtinctionRebellion activists are busy rebelling this week. In 60 major cities in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South America, Mexico, and the United States, people are gathering to shout, dance, sing, glue themselves to heavy objects, do performance art, and whatever else they can think of to tell global governments to STOP INVESTING IN AND SUPPORTING FOSSIL FUEL GIANTS. NOW. Our global house is on fire, and it is a CLIMATE EMERGENCY.

Here is a news segment from Democracy Now! which interviews Dr. Gail Bradbrook, one of the co-founders of Extinction Rebellion. It’s a great segment to watch, especially if you aren’t familiar with XR’s basic philosophy and three foundational demands. Because climate heating is really happening, and governments can no longer simply pay lip service to the world’s citizens. We are demanding Real. Action. Now.

Here are links to XR’s website, for all the latest news, inspiring videos and amazing photos of what is happening in the streets of our world this week. The People are Awake! Shouting! And Fearless! https://rebellion.earth/2019/10/09/xr-unchained-day-2-of-rebellion/

Greta in America & Global Climate Strikes

Greta Thunberg has been in the United States for only a short time, but she has wasted no time at getting straight to work. On Friday the 13th of September, she joined other youth who gathered near the White House lawn for a Friday School Strike for Climate. Everywhere this young person goes, she is greeted with warmth, cheers and love. In just over a year of being a climate activist, Greta has gone from a lone teenager with a sign in front of the Swedish government in Stockholm, to a globally known celebrity and poster child for saving Earth.

In today’s Intercept news site, Naomi Klein interviews Greta with a few questions about her impressions of America so far, how she deals with internet trolls, her thoughts about being a high-profile Autism-spectrum person, and the expense of dealing with climate change. Klein’s article is here.

Next Friday, September 20th,  youth and adults around the world will hold Global Climate Strikes to protest the inaction of governments and multinational corporations to take drastic actions to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are rapidly warming our planet. The Union of Concerned Scientists put together this guide for anyone wanting to know more and how to get involved in their community.  So make a sign, grab some friends, and Strike for the Climate on September 20th!
