The secret to awakening, the entrance way is when you can come to acknowledge that whatever you perceive in another to just be deplorable, despicable, truly resides within the self as well. You see, you both contain darkness and light and you both, for a little while longer self identity with the ego, lower consciousness. As you see this, play with this, acknowledge this you will wake up out of the dream. You will stop blaming or finding fault with what the neighbors are doing, what your children, your parents, your country's leadership is doing and you will start to take ownership for the whole thing. For the creation of the ego. You will acknowledge that this same ego resides within.
Because you see, all the lava lamps, all the psychedelic colors and peace signs will not cover up this central issue. The time has come to stop screaming and yelling at others for starting the war and to start to look within. Stop harboring resentments for how others are choosing to identify with their ego and begin to develop your own coursework of enlightenment. The Christ and the ego reside within as different aspects, parts of you. Acknowledge this, own this, stop running from this if you can, if you are ready. As you recognize that what the "others" are playing with are simply energies, an identification that " I too possess ", or is in possession of me. As you acknowledge this, you will stop complaining about "them" and start taking ownership within.
Turn the tables around and recognize the problem has never been with "out" all along. As you realize that you will assume a position of power. The world is only a reflection of you. The world is only reflecting to you, your misidentifcation with ego consciousness. Choose to own this, choose to acknowledge and realize this. Because as you do, you will stop blaming he world. You will put down your picket signs and start getting to work. The real work. You will start realizing the problem is within. It is with your own identification with ego.
The is not a "bad" thing to see. It is a crystal revelation, more illuminating , more empowering, more uplifting then you can image. The Christ lives within me now. I may see the ego in myself or another, but I now know it is all the same. I choose, and this is key- I choose to identify with Christ consciousness. You see, it is not about "fighting" with your ego or someone else's ego, because this "fighting" is also ego consciousness, do you see that?
It is a path of redirecting your mind, your focus back to Truth. Christ walks here, abides here, lives here. That is your Truth.
Go in Peace
