That’s a post I saw on Facebook yesterday.
For me, it was a perfect year, in every way.
No, I’m not kidding.
Our life is about the priorities we set and how we live according to those priorities.
At the top of the list of mine are
Of course, there are others, but those four are the core.
Love! The most powerful way of being.
Connecting. With myself first. Because if you can’t create and learn to understand and live a deep love centered connection with yourself, how can you expect to connect with others, with nature, with the Earth, with life, in any meaningful way?
Healing. What is it? For us, for me, it is a continuing search and discovery of the cause behind the cause behind the cause and finding ways to correct or eliminate those causes to become and live as healthy as possible.
Living awake. Here is a subject that we could go on talking about for hours, weeks, years even.
I have made strides in all these areas this year I have to pinch myself several times a day to make sure I’m not dreaming.
So yes, for me, the year was perfect.
At the same time, my friend is right, 2018 in many ways was pretty fucked up. What’s going on all over the world is pretty fucked up.
The world is fucked. We are at a very precarious, fucked up place.
Yet, the way the world is today is exactly the way the ancient teachings predicted it would be thousands of years ago.
They have always talked about this time of change and how the old, the destructive forces, the rapists of the Earth, the rapists of all that is feminine and sacred, will reassert themselves one more time before they disappear forever.
So right now, these forces and the people representing these forces are in power and love is an afterthought in their world, if that.
And, as we all know, you cannot build a life without love. You cannot build heart based healing connections and relationships without love. You cannot create a heart-centered culture without love.
Well, you can build a plain empty culture, but look at it, it turns into something as fucked up as what we see today in our modern world.
What is saving us is more and more people who are done with this shit. Who have had enough and are pushing back. People who are working hard for change. Not just on the outside, but inside themselves too, which is where all change begins.
They want to know the truth, they want to know love, they want to know themselves, they want to know the mystery of life and death, of living and dying. They want to know the truth of what it means to live awake and free.
And we know that the universe will rearrange itself to accommodate our picture of reality. We also know that there aren’t quite enough of us to make that new world of ours a reality, just yet.
As I recently mentioned, our dominant Western culture is like a bullet train headed for the abyss, and there are a few of us who are trying to slow it down so that it won’t reach its destination so that we have enough time to build a different world and not crash and burn.
Our teachers always said that to get there, for humanity to see this new world become a reality it is vital, it is crucial, that as many of us as possible work on waking up.
More and more of us working on truly waking up and living awake is the one thing that is needed the most for us to be able to effect lasting change, to stop this crazy train and build a new world.
Now waking up is a loaded concept and one that is, as far as I can see, almost always misunderstood and misinterpreted.
We are moving closer to a greater understanding of it. Inch by inch people are moving closer to a true knowingness of it. And I wish we had all the time in the world to keep moving inch by inch, but damn, do you know how fast a bullet train travels?
So, next week, Kay, Lora, and I will get together for another Ka Ta See Healing Talks LIVE Webinar and talk about what it means to be awake in Ka Ta See.
We will be talking about how these ancient teachings view being awake and how they guide people to that way of living and why our elders always emphasized that people becoming awake is the most important thing that will lead us into the new world.
