|There are many changes going on these
days all over the world; earth changes, population changes, climate changes
and consciousness changes. On top of all this, there are many predictions
for even more changes to come.
One of the outcomes of these changes and predictions of what is before
us is fear. Many of us look at what is going on as evidence of past
predictions and see current predictions as an inevitable, catastrophic
future. We perceive this current lifetime, this miniscule speck of existence
out of all infinity, as something to cling to and have great concern
Granted, we are all here at this time to serve a purpose. We are here
to play a part in the great changes that are occurring. However, there
is nothing to fear. We are not finite beings that will "poof" out of
existence with the shift of a magnetic pole or the dramatic change of
a climate or the disappearance of major land masses.
We are infinite beings as parts of the one Infinite Being that has
always been and will always be. That doesn't mean we can shirk our responsibilities
to live out our current life purpose and assist in directing the course
of Earth changes and the raising of consciousness. I only mean to say
that this life and this Earth-form, as we know it, is not the be all
and end all. Change has always been the norm, major and minor, and it
will always be the norm. Clinging and attaching to your life staying
the same will only bring you pain because that will never happen. Status
quo is not the nature of the universe. Being able to let go, to release
fear of change, will allow you to relax and enjoy the ride to the never-ending
future. The following is guidance received from a meditation several
years ago. I hope it is helpful. "There are dancers, singers and watchers
in any drama that unfolds. Each has their own part to play to make the
unfoldment worthwhile. Without the singers, there is no music with which
to dance. Without the dancers, there is no beauty of production to entertain
the watchers. Without the watchers, there is no one to entertain and
so no satisfaction for the performers.
It is all God playing out the drama of eternity for no other reason
than the enjoyment of the play. There really is no destination as there
was no beginning. Oh, there is the appearance of beginnings and endings
for that is the nature of the drama. It makes it more interesting when
there is change. What if all the books ever written were just continuations
of the same story with all the same characters acting out their parts
in the same scene and nothing ever changed? What would be the point
in reading a story that was always the same? The element of creativity
would be unnecessary and all would be stagnant - just like a pond where
the water is stagnant. It becomes murky, slimy and smelly. It is of
no interest to anyone but frogs and mosquitoes.
There is no end to divine creativity. It never ends. To think of heaven,
enlightenment, nirvana or any other similar concept as a goal or some
endpoint to a journey is just pure fallacy. To be sure, there are greater
and lesser levels or awareness but it's all relative. There is no final
state of complete and total awareness because God is always and eternally
creating so there is always more and more of which to be aware. As I
said, "It never ends."
Now, don't perceive this as a hopeless situation like being a rat in
an endless maze with no hope of reaching the way out and a yummy piece
of cheese. It is not a divine joke designed to create eternal frustration
and futility. It is meant to be an eternal creation of wonder and adventure.
So, what if there was some grand and glorious endpoint and you reached
it . . . then what? Parades of recognition? Parties? Angels floating
on clouds playing harps? For all eternity?
If that was the case, that there was some eventual goal, and everyone
finally reached it, what purpose would God have? All creating and creativity
would cease. The true death of God would occur and without that one
true source of everything to provide sustaining energy - there would
But of course, that's not possible. It is the nature of God to create
and to keep on creating endlessly. So, enjoy the ride. Think of yourself
as the eternal explorer, creator and adventurer. You might as well since
that's what you truly are anyway. Set your sights on new horizons of
delightful experiences and play away. Play at creating. Create to have
fun in the process of creating. Don't create because your creations
have to mean something or make a difference. Create for the pure joy
of creating and because it's your nature to create. You only need to
look at nature to learn that lesson. Plants don't create beautiful flowers
to impress anyone or make a meaningful social statement. They create
flowers because it is their nature to do so. That's what Jesus was referring
to when he spoke of the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.
They fulfill their natures without anxiety by surrendering to their
Birds do not try to be dogs. Lions do not try to be monkeys. Violets
do not try to be oak trees. Only humans try to be what they are not
- and that is human. However, there really are no such things as human
beings because everything is the living, creating spirit of God in an
endless variety of forms.
So this is some of the new information you asked for. There is no eventual
goal to reach. There is only eternal creation in infinite dimensions
for no other reason than it is God's nature to create. It never ends
. . . never! So enjoy and have fun."
