And Now for a Perspective Other than the One You Will Get from the Mainstream.

So I sit and contemplate how we got here. I am totally blown away by all the Happy Easter ruckus that is going on. I am especially disappointed in having grown up in the cult of Christianity, after having listened to all the believers claim year after year after year that their true desire was World Peace, since the *actual* message is that they want world peace according to their terms.

I sit in awe of the Powers That Be, who have successfully instilled the notion in the mainstream world religions that we are separate from God, and that a Saviour is here to forgive our sins. What this has done is to create an environment where we collectively believe or accept that we are ultimately not responsible, because whatever horrors we inflict upon each other will ultimately be forgiven and forgotten, absolving us from the responsibility of our actions.

As a more holistic view is now coming into being, we have deduced that our world and our societies are our creations, and that what we do to another, we also do to ourselves. The advantage of seeing things from the perspective of being yet an aspect of the One is that you begin to easily discern that the world is indeed mirroring to you. There is no "other." Of course forgiveness is a fundamental construct from the perspective of the One, but it is actually very easy to do when you are so in awe at the magnificence of the entire process of human experience, and are so excited to be Here, Now, at the time of the Shift  of the Ages. This is why we came here, so it's time to get to work.
Poverty will only end when we decide that poverty will end and act accordingly, and not one moment before that. It is our creation, and only we can exchange it for something else.
Those of us on the edge of the evolutionary step taking place are obligated to write down what we came here to communicate, so that those who may pass this way after us can choose correctly. Every day, in every way, we have a choice about what kind of universe we are going to inhabit. We understand intellectally that we have many choices, but yet find ourselves inevitably trapped in situations because we do not believe we have another choice. We need some practice exercising of our choice muscles.
If you can successfully change your circumstance, however slightly, by simply making up your mind that you are going to change your situation, you ultimately begin to see that your choices and direct inputs into every moment of your day open up new possibilities for a new moment, every moment, and the different options begin to fan out in front of you like a deck of playing cards, waiting for you to choose what the very next moment will look like, and then the very next one after that, etc. This can be a little disconcerting at first, and some find it paralyzing. It is actually where our ultimate power lies. And we as individuals need to exercise our choice muscles a little more carefully so that we as a collective can experience the Shift with grace and ease. Because it's happening right now
