2012 and the Dichotomy of Consciousness_Featured_, Ascension, Conscious Living Saturday, August 4th, 2012
Shortly after the 9/11 events, I published an article called Victims of the Attack – Martyrs for Meaning in which I quoted noted author PMH Atwater. In it she said: “(This event represented) a wake-up call (that) was needed – one horrendous enough to reverberate across our country and the globe, affecting every man, woman, and child and in every nation. Many are those who have grown complacent in life – sloppy of dress, rigid in beliefs, uncaring in the consequences of personal activities, ever needful of another addiction convincing enough to prove we are alive…The people who died sacrificed their lives to make the statement that none of us can continue to live the way we have. It is time to awaken…Our complacency comes from putting ‘things’ ahead of service and investment; a consumerism gone mad, a spirituality deemed little more than new age nonsense.”
It is time to awaken, and perhaps this dichotomy of consciousness is a litmus test to see who will do just that. Within this matrix of messages, it cannot be stated enough: WE HAVE CHOICE – Choice to not conform to status quo ideologies. Choice to see and experience the wonder of life and human potential. Choice to educate ourselves beyond the systematic framework. Choice to question and most importantly, choice to change.
2012, I sense is part of a collection of years, both pre and post, that is nudging us to realize that we are indeed on the precipice of such wonders, but is beckoning our participation with firm conviction. Will you expand or repress consciousness? By committing to divorcing from the cacophony of the current world and joining the new, we will become the change we’ve been so longing to see. Which side of the dichotomy are you going to occupy?
