Deeper Perception Made Practical

Householder Enlightenment Leadership. A Guest Post from ISABELLA C.

"Euwww, I'm awake for this? I mean, I'm glad to be awake. Grateful. But...."

“Euwww, I’m awake for this? I mean, I’m glad to be awake. Grateful. But….”

When a blog comment moves me to tears, I think it deserves to be elevated to a guest post (if possible). That happened today.

We were discussing how Enlightenment doesn’t necesssarily solve all human problems. And how difficulties can even arise post-Enlightenment that seem, and feel, very personal. Yet they may result from a leadership role in collective consciousness.

In this new Age of Awakening, millions of people may be moving into Enlightenment. Doing this as householders, too. Rather than following time-hallowed models, suitable for earlier development of consciousness at Earth School, when the path to Self-Realization was deemed to require the renunciate way of life.

Over at Does Enlightenment Break Your World Wide Open?, Blog-Buddy SARAH asked about “the idea that pioneers/leaders of a group are taking on karma for that group beyond their own personal karma.”

Responding, I wrote:

Yes, as far as I understand things so far, pioneers/leaders of a group do take on karma for that group beyond their own personal karma.

When the identity shifts to a much higher concentration of Divine than previously (one characteristic of Enlightenment), one’s version of World Service can get bigger.

We’re still responsible for what we do, such as ethical behavior. Yet what we’re dealing with may involve an entire group in collective consciousness, such as “Single Fathers” or “African Americans in the Age of Awakening.”

There’s our context. Now for ISABELLA C.’s perspective.

About Those Funny “Leadership Role” Consequences


I agree with these being, at least partly, “leadership role consequences,” ROSE. I think of it more like doing a really important job. (At least one you consider important!)

On one hand, I think my thrashing about has been like a teenager challenging a parent. “Will you still love me now? Now? NOW?” From this I have learned unconditional love and trust.

Part of it has been venting. This deepened my relationship with God, as it does with friends.

I have learned that God is the same as us, and that humbleness is a quality of God. How humble you have felt in the face of God.. that IS God. When you come home God is humbled. Astounded and amazed at what you have managed to do.

This means I can do with my life what I choose. God trusts me and I trust him. When I come home I will have something good to share, and God will be proud. This is not a challenge or a test; this is a truth. God is honored and glad that you lived.

That’s what I think, anyway. 🙂

    When we amp up our light, we naturally become a lighthouse. We may not even notice this shift, but its there, even in the very mundane.

    This is beautifully expressed and deeply comforting. It points out a way I was still thinking of God in terms of my childhood religious training (separate from me, sternly judgmental and expecting an undefined and impossible to reach perfection). I’ve moved past that in many ways, but needed to hear this. Thank you Isabella.

    I think I have read this blog post before, but reading it again gave me a comforting feeling.

    ‘… When I come home I will have something good to share, and God will be proud. This is not a challenge or a test; this is a truth. God is honored and glad that you lived.’

    That God is honored that I live…I like this.:-)
