Paradoxical Times

Paradoxical Times

We are walking our path in paradoxical times. We hear that the world is waking up, yet we read every day that another life or many lives have been taken by senseless tragedies. We evolve with technology yet ponder how to stay connected. We have prepackaged foods yet struggle to take care of ourselves. We have more knowledge but seem to know less. We believe in dreams yet have difficulty believing in our own. We long to believe in God or something larger than ourselves, yet we do not seem to understand that the way to God is by loving what is closest to us.

We have more wealth, yet in so many ways we are still poor, and many of us are longing for a life of meaning, value, and purpose. We long to have a message and an understanding of life that allows us to be heard, recognized, and discovered for who we truly are. We long to matter, and as a teacher of mine many years ago always said, “We are here not to solve all the problems of the world but to not be one of the problems of the world.”

We have become a “me” or “what about me” generation, yet we do not innately understand that there is not a true me expressing in most of us. We are programmed and robotic rather than innately being who we are destined to be.

All of us long to be appreciated and valued. We long to be seen and heard. Until we see and hear our own inner voices and callings, we will simply continue to die a little each and every day.

What is consciousness? Is it available to all of us?

What is consciousness? Is it available to all of us?

Our consciousness is that to which we pay attention. It is our mental awareness. It can be defined as both the conscious and the subconscious mind and all they embody. Our consciousness is simply everything we have ever believed and accepted to be the truth about ourselves. We have been told who we are and…
