The Shift, The Rapture, Enlightenment, Ascension, or What?

“Whether we are changing the world or we are changing ourselves, the effect is the same – we are living in a new world.”


Superhero Report from Monday, August 11, 2014

Since time began, or at least since either climate change or barbaric hoards came and destroyed the harmony that human beings had once known (see Riane Eisler’s books, Sacred Pleasure and Chalice and the Blade for more on these theories), we have been yearning for another kind of world.  Whether communicated through hippie tie-dye dreams of peaceful revolution or apocalyptic foretellings of the rapture and the promise of the “kingdom to come,” we have looked for something other than the fear and conflict that often defines the human condition.  This generation’s talk on enlightenment and ascension is no different.

. . . or is it?  Ultimately, that decision is up to you.  Because, in a sense, we create our own reality (more on that in a bit), so we get to decide….do we want to remain in the world as it is, or live in a way that supports a more peaceful and harmonious world?  And, is there something to the increasing numbers of people speaking for and working toward making the world a better place?  Or is this as it always has been and we just have more access to these conversations because of the internet?  Again…the answer to this question is up to you.

As one who is not interested in creating or supporting anything as doctrine, I will not tell you what to believe, but instead, will invite you to discern for yourself.  There are a million and one resources out there for exploring the ascension, enlightenment, world changes, third dimension/fifth dimension transition, the shift, etc. etc. etc.  Simply type one of these terms into Google and you will find a million possible answers.  At the end of this post, I will share with you the resources that I turn to for support in this discernment, but again, don’t take any of this as doctrine, instead, please discern for yourself.  In the meantime, it is important to understand that:

“Whether we are changing the world or we are changing ourselves, the effect is the same – we are living in a new world.”

And this is exactly what it boils down to.  If we are in a stage of our human evolution which is facilitating dramatic and peaceful change in our world…..yay!  If, on the other hand, it is more about our own inner transformation, then that is ok too.  This is the part about creating our own reality, because ultimately, creating a peaceful and harmonious world, starts with ourselves.  When we do the inner work of cultivating peace, compassion and harmony within ourselves, it can’t help but trickle out into our lives and ultimately, out into the world.  When we take care of the world that resides within us, it is reflected in the world around us.  When we become peaceful, compassionate and joyful, the world becomes peaceful, compassionate and joyful – even when we are surrounded by hatred and fear.  When we know the love that we are and enjoy the peace of that knowing, the events of the outside world have no negative impact on us….and maybe this is what some of the New Age “Ascension” folks are talking about when they refer to the 5-D, fifth dimension world:


Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derision

Golden living dreams of vision

Mystic crystal revelations

And the minds true liberation…


Ultimately, it is up to you.  If you are looking for a peaceful, more loving world, enter the SHIFT within yourself and see what happens.  In the meantime, here are a few resources I have found helpful:
