I’m a homeschool mom and the more I study history, the more I realize the nation called The United States of America has been divided from the beginning.
Our nation was founded by 3 separate groups.
The first came for greed – they actually thought gold and precious gems were lying around on the ground. They almost starved to death the first winter. The next group were religious fundamentalists that couldn’t practice openly in their homeland. Finally a group arrived bringing slaves.
So, there you have it – the roots of the United States.
I’m not sure how those 3 could ever come to an agreement about anything. And personally, I don’t resonate with any of them. Yet there are remnants of those motivations still running rampant throughout our society.
The greedy are all too often willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their dreams regardless of the cost to others or the environment. The religious fundamentalists condemn anyone that disagree with their beliefs and many of them are willing to use violence in the name of God. There are still those who feel they are “above” or “better than” others based on their race, religion, gender, economic status, or something else.
In all three cases, there is an us vs. them mentality. Instead of looking at how we are all similar, the focus is on how we are different. Instead of wondering how we can all help one another, there is a focus on how we can get what we want with complete disregard for others.
The Founding Fathers locked the windows on the room they occupied in Philadelphia, not wanting others to be able to hear what they were saying inside. They spent 3 months fighting over the Declaration of Independence. When it was read aloud in town squares after being signed, there was practically rioting in the streets. Delaware wouldn’t even send a representative to the meeting in Philadelphia.
The Civil War divided the nation in half and it’s never quite recovered. You see it every day in everything from politics to sports to business. There is competition and fighting everywhere – between companies, between special interest groups, between liberals and conservatives, democrats and republicans, this team and that team.
With all of that going on, how can we achieve Oneness?
It certainly isn’t easy.
Recently I wrote something on Facebook about being tired of the political lies and politics in general. It spurred many comments from friends and fans. One person wrote a comment about the families that run the world and how they all work together to keep humanity disempowered, controlled, and struggling.
I’ve been hearing and reading similar stories for many many years. I know WAY more than I want to about conspiracy theory. This group is doing something. That group is doing something else. There is yet another scheme to keep the people down and controlled. The more you focus on those things, the more evidence you will find to support those theories.
You are more powerful than you can even imagine.
Whether the conspiracies are real or contrived, focusing on them keeps people in fear, small, and powerless.
I give it no thought or energy whatsoever. And I encourage you to do the same.
My only job is to rise up and become my highest potential and then to teach and help others to do the same.
We are living in a multi-verse, with multiple realities happening side by side and simultaneously. Just ask my 13-year old. He will tell you all about how string theory works.
You can pick the stream (or band of consciousness) you choose to live in. It all has to do with where you put your attention. Some people will read that and think I’m living in lala land.
Until you have experienced living at an extremely high vibration, it’s hard to “get” what I’m talking about.
There are streams that are full of wonder, synchronicity, joy, helpful people, and unexpected assistance. There are streams full of struggle and strife with mean and manipulative people at every turn. The stream you live in and experience is dependent on your thoughts, your level of consciousness, your level of inner harmony and balance, the people you associate with, how many emotional wounds, fears, judgments, and limiting beliefs you have.
Heal the wounds, forgive yourself and everyone else, raise your vibration, find balance, surround yourself with people who love, honor, and accept you just as you are, become whole, focus on love and the Divine, and you can literally pick your stream.
I encourage anyone who reads this to pick the high road. Focus on your own I Am Presence or Higher Self and total merging with All that Is.
For those of a Christian persuasion, think on Jesus and his words and deeds. Do your best to emulate them and begin to think as he thought. The same would go for Buddha or any of the Avatars of earth history.
EnLightenment is not a mental process, something to be thought about, pondered, and discussed. It is something to be experienced. And once you have, you see with new eyes and hear with new ears. Everything is perceived from a different perspective. You no longer consider your needs above others, you become conscientious (conscious) about how everything you do affects those around you and even the world.
The only way for the world to attain Oneness is by you doing it. You really don’t need to worry about what the other people are doing. It’s what you are doing that matters.
Every time someone attains Oneness, it makes it easier for everyone else.
Have a deLightful day,
