Yesterday was the crest of the 5th day of the last wave of the Mayan Calendar. Picture humanity at the highest point or crest of a roller coaster ride. We are all securely seated, each with our unique view point, knowing that we are all about to take a plunge. Some are fearful of what they think lies ahead. Others are giddy with anticipation of the rush of the ride and some are just along for the ride and don't care either way. Just look around and I think you will see people who see this time in history as a time to fear or a time to rejoice or are just observing in neutral. No matter how you view it, there seems to be no way for humanity to turn this ride around. Like it or not, here we go!
I am currently living near an amusement park that is within walking distance. During one of my walks around the park, I thought about how a roller coaster is a metaphor for life, with its ups and downs, twists and turns, and coming full circle. Even so, people choose to take the ride. We all decided before we embodied to take this ride during this lifetime of change. How we choose to experience the ride, whether to embrace the ups and downs or to fight the flow, makes all the difference in how we feel when we are done.
The purpose of an amusement park is to amuse or bring joy. Life is meant to be lived in joy. We, as conscious co-creators, are designed to create from our hearts and what resides in the heart? Joy.
The physicist, Julian Barbour, proved that what we think in this 3-D world creates certain forms in 6-D. I refer to these forms as etheric templates in the book I am currently writing. He proved that what we focus on is created as sacred geometry forms (thought forms) in another dimension, which eventually become part of 3-D. When we focus on fear, we get more fear. When we focus on joy, we get more joy.
I knew that at this crucial time, humanity would be looking for lifelines. Hence the title of my blog and publishing company, Life Lines. What lifeline will be strong enough to survive this ride we are on? The obvious answer is love but love is cliche. Love is a loaded word that can be interpreted in various ways. Joy, on the other hand, is less ambiguous. Can you imagine feeling joy without also being in a state of love?
On August 18, we enter the energy of destruction during the 5th night of the Mayan Calendar. Destruction of the world economy, destruction of political and societal structures, destruction of the environment, destruction through catastrophic earth changes, and destruction through war may all come to pass. Not a pretty picture and yet, if you realize that we can no longer survive if we continue on this current path, then you can look at this change with gratitude and joy. If the world as we have known it is coming to an end as the indigenous of the world have predicted, then let's keep dancing! Let's bring in the new with enthusiasm! The word enthusiasm comes from the root entheos meaning having a god within. What may seem to be counter-intuitive to most people, being in joy, is exactly what will turn the tide.
Riding the waves of change while in joy creates smaller swells. It calms the rough seas of change. Time flies when you are having fun because joy keeps you in the moment of now. Fear cannot exist in the moment of now.
I wrote in my book, In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul, "Joy comes from living the truth of who you are." As destruction increases in the last months of the Calendar, our consciousness increases. Joy is the natural effect of awakening to our divine nature. As doom and gloom abound, joy tiptoes in unannounced. When was the last time you played? Pay attention to what brings you joy. Notice when you are in your joy. Choose joy. Joy is contagious.
