Has anyone congratulated you lately? Well, you deserve it, just getting through the day.
Because these days are being lived in the still-newish Age of Aquarius, when all humans must adjust to the thinning of the veil. It’s all too easy now, moving deeply into astral experience (a.k.a. subconscious frequencies), which can throw us off our game — the game of being human. Energetically the world is different now.
Wars and financial upheavals compound the adjustment needed, due to the new astral dazzle.
Even biologically, we’re having to adapt. As a wise chiropractor was telling me today, the sheer number of chemicals each of us deals with on a daily basis has increased exponentially since the 1980’s. This is being processed by us all the way down to the cellular level.
In my frame of reference, the years from 1980 to 2012 were the big ramp-up to The Shift into the Age of Aquarius. And now we really have something different — potentially wonderful but very different. Every human alive is tasked with getting used to it.
So if you’re having some challenges with all this, take heart. You are anything but alone.
If you can live human-based spirituality, in contrast to spiritual shutdown or spiritual addiction, you’re doing really, really well. Do you have the spunk to actively pursue personal development? That’s downtright superb.
Today this guest post came in from DON, who has been feeling the transitional pains of living now. Mine are the headings and small edits. The courageous voice in today’s article belongs to our Blog-Buddy DON.
Feeling banged up by life
The last 3-6 months have been some of the most challenging of my life. Ive found myself in myriad difficult circumstances.
For three years or more, I was on a perpetual growth trajectory. Then all sorts of problems began cropping up. Undoubtedly I learned some valuable lessons, which I hope to take forward with me, but Ive definitely been feeling banged up by life.
Its difficult because Ive felt very empowered by Rosetree Energy Spirituality. The different skill sets I have learned have helped me to make big changes and grow. But ultimately that hasn’t kept me from having to live in this crazy-messy world.
Social skills, common sense, a backbone, and more than a smidge of skepticism… are as vital as cutting cords of attachment.
Personally, I hope Im paying back some karma. But either way Ive revised a lot of my thinking models as they relate to my approach to different aspects of life. Hopefully this will pay off in years to come; I keep doing my human best to sidestep potential challenges.
I’m reconsidering some things, too
Above all, these trials have awakened humility and forced me to reconsider what is truly important, why Im on the earth in the first place.
Although we may be cool, fancy, way-ahead-of-our-time aura readers and energy healers, ultimately were as helpless as anyone else when dealing with the whims of fortune . We cant control others, nor can we control the moods of karma or the universe.
I saw a short HBO documentary tonight about people who collect cans and bottles for a living on the streets of New York. They do back-breaking work to make 30 or 40 bucks (on a good day).
Many are homeless, or live in tenement-style buildings. People yell at them and harass them. Theyre ridiculed, looked down upon. In general they live difficult, miserable lives. Its a heart-breaking documentary.
The other day I read that Martin Luther King Jr. said that ingratitude is the greatest of all sins. I dont remember the reasoning behind it, but I remember that he made a lot of sense.
Gratitude, despite all the challenges
As I sat there watching one of these bottle-collecting women talk about her job — consisting of picking through garbage for five cents a can — she had her two sons there with her. They looked down, looked away from the camera, ashamed and embarassed. I welled up with more sadness and compassion than I had felt for a long time, for these people, for their squalid, forgotten lives.
It felt good to feel sad. It felt good to feel compassion. I remembered how awful our world is for so many, for the billions forced to work back-breaking jobs for pennies.
I gave thanks for how easy I have it in comparison. For all the luxuries in my life. For the freedom and economic mobility I have. For a house, a car, eating out at restaurants, for air travel, for the Internet.
Although it doesnt lessen the pain of rejection, deceit, and betrayal, gratitude reminds me how blessed I am in so many ways. I have to give thanks, and spread kindness, for the sake of that.
