Today’s blog is inspired by a series of events and experiences that I have observed and confirmed by the following article on the coming of “the Age of Aquarius” http://www.3ho.org/ecommunity/2011/09/the-aquarian-shift-what-will-be-different-about-our-world-after-november-11-2011/. Whether you believe in the idea of a galactic shift or not, we are each given, in every moment of every day the opportunity to choose our life. Do we choose love and truth or fear? The choice is ours….and the time to choose is NOW!
Mystic Crystal Revelations
Every single spiritual master that has graced this fair planet (Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, The Buddha, The Dalai Lama, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, St. Francis, Osho, Swami Rama, Yogananda, etc. etc. etc. ) attained the same understanding: “All we need is love.” Then they went out to share this truth with the world. These teachers acknowledged THE common longing among human beings….and that is the longing to know love and to know peace. Fear, they knew was the obstacle to knowing peace and love, and they shared with their students (and the rest of the world with them) specific tools for healing and releasing fear so that all could know the joyful contentment they had come to know within themselves.
And the Minds True Liberation
The key to knowing the love and the peace known by these spiritual masters is CHOICE! And it is a matter of CHOICE. Because of the nature of the human condition, peace and love are not likely to show up on their own. Yes, we have fleeting glimpses of the love and the peace that we are, without ever picking up a spiritual text or engaging in a spiritual practice. If, however, we want peace and love that will endure and if we want to more forward in our human journey in spite of the reality of fear, then we have to CHOOSE peace and love. It is in choosing love over fear, truth over ego, peace over anxiety, joy over despair that we are liberated from the bondage of the human condition. We find freedom when we choose love. We find expansiveness when we know joy. We find contentment when we cultivate peace.
Then Peace Will Guide the Planets and Love Will Steer the Stars
According to those that follow the science of astrology, November 11, 2011 marks the beginning of “The Age of Aquarius.” Whether or not we believe in the “prophecies” about the significance of this planetary line up, one message is clear and it is clear for all of eternity……the time to choose is NOW. If you want love, peace, joy, harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding, no more falsehood or derision…..CHOOSE IT! Stop allowing fear to run your life. Choose love. Choose peace. Choose joy. And support that choice through sound spiritual practice. And if you need additional support, read my book 🙂 Authentic Freedom – Claiming a Life of Contentment and Joy!
The song, “The Age of Aquarius” by the Fifth Dimension is the very first song I ever remember hearing as a child and THE song that touched me in a deeply impactful and significant way. When I first heard the song….I believed it. I knew this was where we were being led as human beings and I knew that we would see the words of that song manifest in our lifetimes. For whatever reason, this song has become the guiding principle of my life and I truly believe that the Divine was speaking to me in some way through this song. So….without further ado: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0G8XJNz4bY Let the Sunshine in!
