It is interesting to note that every spiritual discipline has a way of speaking about awakening, coming into the light of self-realization and alignment with the God Force … the power of the universe.
The languages of these approaches may be different, but the intent is the same: for us to awaken from the sleep of our uninformed consciousness and embrace more and more of our Selves as we grow to align with the frequencies of purposeful creation.
We believe that consciousness is a continuum that we shape as well as are shaped by, and with the right tools we can access it and improve that shaping process.
In the range of aspects of consciousness, there is nothing truly hidden, just parts that we have not fully explored and opened up for our – and humanity’s – benefit.
What does your inner work and desire have to do with humanity? As we work with these principles to create better lives for ourselves, we are shifting our consciousness. As we move into these higher frequencies of mind energy, we begin to change in ways that bring more compassion, tolerance and understanding, as well as a healthy desire to help others. We become changed in how we see and relate to the world. We become people who understand the harm that is done, not just physically, but verbally and emotionally, to our fellow beings. And more and more we become ones who can do no harm. As one person changes, a ripple effect occurs out toward others, and they are affected by that change.
The effect may be small to start, but nonetheless it is present. Laws and rules and wars have done little to change the nature of humankind. Shifts in consciousness are what will bring about the changes necessary to create a better world for all. So the personal is, in fact, universal in the magnitude of its effect.
As we become more aware of our thoughts, feelings, emotions – our actions, reactions, and interactions – each of us can be an agent of positive change in the world, beginning close to home and then expanding our spheres of influence.
