What does it mean to be a conscious human being? What does it mean to be alive? While the world sleeps in its dormant state, those who find themselves awake and comprehending energy in a Universal state are the ones who have been left to shoulder the burden of a deteriorating society. Those awake individuals move through the masses harboring a Will to change the world around them. They are consciously trying to encourage those who have stalled in their beauty and have ended up giving up on their journey for the sake of least resistance.
The awakened souls know the secret pathways around these kinds of obstacles, they also know you can never come to the climatic finalization of such a journey while still sleeping. They therefore turned their attention to waking the populace up. Books were written, religions and followings adorned the streets, movies were created; yet even still, progress has been excruciatingly slow.
The Art of Waking Up
If you can imagine a sleeping baby, deep within the world of dreams, floating amongst clouds of thoughts, safely ushered away from reality; then you can understand a most perfect analogy for the human populace. The deepest problem is that most do not actually want to wake up. And this in itself is one of the most challenging dilemmas; how do you wake somebody up who does not in fact want to be awakened? The answer is very simple; either not at all, or you willingly shock them awake through sudden sensory stimulus. No matter how gentle you try to slowly rock them awake, the sudden difference between the silky soft air of nothingness and the very first instance of a sense reaction, commences the waking up process.
One of my favorite scenes from the movie Inception was the scene where Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is talking about his ideas for their upcoming inception, when Eames (Tom Hardy) demonstrates the art of a "kick" by knocking Arthur's (Joseph-Gordon Levitt's) chair and throwing him off balance.
This single 18 second sequence in this movie demonstrates exactly why negativity exists in the Universe. This single clip is so profoundly accurate it also gives us reason enough to understand why we even experience negative events on Earth. The "kick" Cobb is referring to is a shock in the human senses that reacts to the changing nature of our surrounding environment and initiates a deep self-programmed function to wake us up. It is almost the reverse function of when we suffer a blow to the head and our body forces us unconscious in order to reduce more possible damage if we were to continue our current course.
How does this relate to negativity? What if I once told you that there existed a Universe many Universes ago. This is most definitely not the first time this Universe has existed, in the same way it also not the first Universe in existence. There was a time when our Creator decided to experiment with the particular polarization of his Universe. This Universe was set to a polarization of approximately 98% Light and 2% Dark. It was a beautiful utopian paradise. The Universe was filled with so much Light and Love and support from the ethereal world. The Beings cherished their very nature for being alive. The Light soon overturned the little Darkness the Universe contracted, and it became one of the most peaceful Universes in existence. There existed no crime, no hatred, no problems, only respect and Love for one another. Sounds like absolute Heaven doesn't it?
What if I now told you that this Universe failed. The first question you would ask is "How is it possible for a Universe to fail?" Very easily, not enough Creators (if any at all) actually progressed through the Dimensional Ascensions to became Creators themselves. In fact the Universe dragged on for so long and so little was achieved, the plug had to be pulled prematurely because it was a waste of time continuing something that was so obviously failing. The Universe became stagnant. It failed because nobody ever wanted to achieve anything, nobody "needed" to progress or even think about Ascension when Life was already perfect the way it was. This is the most important part; negativity is introduced as a form of accelerator. It gives us a distinctive reason to progress, it allows us to express our genuine nature to help others, it is a foundation to want to become a better person, and in-turn; the need to progress forwards.
Our lives were structured to build-up multiple lessons over multiple incarnations on Earth. Though what we may currently be experiencing is hard, it was scheduled into Creation in order to accelerate a particular pathway of learning. What is learning? The self-realization necessary to become aware of the fact that we are developing Creators. In other words, to wake up.
This downward spiral we may feel is what I like to refer to as a spiritual "kick". Our souls subconsciously start to comprehend the changing nature of our environment and the waking up process initiates. Negativity in its utmost beauty and absolute destruction is causing us to become more conscious and aware individuals. Without a stimulus, we would most certainly remain within the slumbering state. Such downward spirals are also known as Chaotic Nodes, or the systematized orchestration of deconstructive events that create the feeling of the "kick" in a seemingly normal life that would not ordinarily experience abnormalities.
What does it mean to be a conscious individual? It means you have already been to Hell and back and are now operating on an Unconditional frequency where failure is not an option. You are an alive soul of God walking through the masses as somebody who is one the cusp of evolving past the need for humanity. This is what it means to be truly alive.
My mind plays at the thought of what it would be like to offer a random soul sudden realization as to the true nature of their Being. Would we accept the nature of this Universe, or would we just decide to remain a part of the unassuming masses?
It is very rare to encounter a person or even a series of events that have the ability to completely dishevel the illusion surrounding our slumbering beast. A beast so powerful that it can completely break apart the constructs of an organized and controllable Life. This awakening unearths all of the most powerful spiritual and religious paradigms into that of an utter mess. Everything becomes voluntary and insignificant compared to this beautiful explosion of awareness the soul suddenly starts to embrace.
Ignorance is bliss. It is the path of least resistance. It means we don't really have to do anything. If we are lucky enough to be experiencing one of our more fortunate lifetimes on Earth, sure ignorance will probably be the most acceptable and rational pathway we could ever decide to stay with. And this is the biggest problem with spiritual ignorance; when our clock dials point up, we feel ecstatic and wonderful like our lives are complete and satisfactory to our hearts content. However, when our dials point down, we feel all manner of extreme volatility until depression and anger define how our lives are to drag us through another day.
I see a lot of people saving up for a rainy day and making sure there is enough to keep them going till their ripe old age. I really question this behavior when those same people depart Earth. We will all eventually die. The only thing we take with us is the experiences our soul has endured and grown through in any particular lifetime. So few people truly understand the value of spirituality if it is viewed from that of a singular lifetime. When we include the most basic element of spirituality; the process of reincarnation, spirituality becomes a lot more valuable. All of a sudden we want to believe in the Afterlife, God, Heaven, and everything else and a day, just because of the "if"s and "maybe"s that arise while contemplating our soul's continuance. We may be the most hypocritical race of beings; stupid we are not.
I seem to believe the human race has a fear of being judged. This fear may be so strong that it could completely humble the average religious soul from "possibly believing in Heaven" to "Yes there is a Heaven and you have to be a good God-fearing person to make it in." I don't seem to care since I have already met Heaven's Gatekeeper, but it seems to be really obvious that fear is driving society to be a more spiritual race. Would religion see even half of its numbers if it were not for the fear of death? I already died when I was 3 years old so I am not really subject to this particular fear either. What drives me if not for the multitude of lifelong fears that have seemingly pronged society into place?
I AM alive on the current planet called Earth, doing what I AM doing, because I was Created to be doing exactly this. If not for my string of past lives causing me to react given a certain amount of constraints, I would not ever feel the need to be doing this. As much as I love the idea of a conscious decision to make a difference, there was never any decision to make, I am simply helping you because this is how the creation of my Universal lifetimes were scripted. To consider ourselves anything other than a simple Universal witness, causing and reacting, is to surrender to our egotistical need to differentiate ourselves from God.
To be religious is not the same as to be conscious. In the same way that to be religious is not to be considered an awakened soul. We may follow the Masters in their highest respects; but to follow is not to achieve spiritual independence required of self-realizing Creators. We are self-realizing Creators. We may live and breathe in a limited form, but our souls may feel otherwise. Our personal truth may only come through hundreds of consecutive incarnations. To be completely conscious would be to experience full-scale Enlightenment and have at our option the ability to solely incarnate to try and increase the consciousness of society. This need, this want to help others around you; this is the result of experiencing a Life as an awakened soul.
