I am obviously asking “how have we changed?” since the beginning of the year upon which the curtain will soon be drawn. I could just have asked:
How have we grown in 2020?
Did we move—especially within—at a faster pace than in any other years we experienced on planet Earth?
That is a question for us to address personally, yet the collective implications of a planet in transition cannot be ignored.
Which may lead to a sub-question,
How have the global emanations of 2020 affected us?
Did they bring us to a different vision of the world?
Hopefully, a more caring vision.
And perhaps generated a different conception of our place in this ‘turbulencing’ (or turbulence-filled) planet?
One last question I would like to offer for this 2020 closing process—a very important one, as I conceive of it—is:
What is dying, within our collective consciousness, and within our microscopic selves?
As a piece of further inspiration, I would like to leave you with an excerpt from a lecture from Master Djwhal Kuhl that I listened to recently. His lecture only adds to the questions I offered.
November 14, 2020
I want to leave you with a question for deepening your introspection, one that is drawn from the current circumstances playing out in the world. As the Covid-19 pandemic has unfolded and spread, the collective human experience has changed. Likely, there have been some interesting moments where your individual egos were piqued, possibly when feeling the inner effects of fear, confinement, worry, helplessness or even anger.
Thus, it is probably a good idea for each of you to ask yourself just what this time of immense learning might be about for you. In the light of what you are learning this year, it is probably a wise choice to consider just where these emotional frequencies might lie within the spectrum of your enlightenment. If you can do that, you will undoubtedly grow immensely from this time of uncertainty.
That growth, in and of itself, is very important, and it seems to be the task of the moment these days. However, try to view the current situation from a larger perspective—say the Galaxy or even the Universe. Then, go even vaster because, viewed from the perspective of The Changeless, nothing is going on. Indeed, pandemics, just like hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, or even out-of-control wildfires, are all part of the cycle of life on this amazing planet. Further, the uncertainty of this time and the stressful situations now arising are all manifestations occurring within the realm of change. Yet they are more than that. They are invitations to rise into bodhisattva-ship.
Try to convert those lower frequency emotions into generosity, clarity, steadiness and most importantly, love. Remember, bodhisattvas deliberately move toward suffering in order to serve and help in whatever way they can. So, in your contemplative moments, drop into your heart field and ask within:
“What is my highest intention, my most noble aspiration for this difficult time?”
When you are stirred with deep concern for your loved ones, open your heart a little more and share in everyone’s concerns for loved ones. Indeed, enter the great, shared heart of compassion. What I am referring to by using that term is a spacious field of consciousness from which you can send engaged and authentic compassion to everyone. Indeed, in your truest, unborn nature, you are timeless love and awareness.
Trust it and go be who you really are!
