Back when I was reading lots of books in the Seth material, one of the areas I felt struck by covered collective consciousness. The energy of thoughts, when people collectively hold the same ones, grows exponentially.
Many teachers since have told me the same thing and I have experienced the powerful energy of people gathered together in a common energy. Perhaps the most amazing moment was when about 1500 of us participated in a meditation involving coming into heart, filling the room and each other with love and then sending love out around the world.
When a large group focuses its attention on a shared vision, the energy going toward that vision gets that exponential increase. This is one of the reasons I believe so strongly in the power of people around the world meditating, chanting, praying, and/or holding a vision or energy space for the same goal or outcome.
This is also why I believe a campaign FOR what you want to see, participated in by tens of thousands or millions can create the reality you hope to see. If you spread the word about a clean earth or a different electoral college outcome and help that idea go viral, the energy and attention being sent toward the outcome you seek will help to make it so.
Collective action like the people coming together at Standing Rock has a big impact. And I particularly love the messages about nonviolence and understanding that have been made by the leaders of this movement/protest. I passed this article, “Standing Rock: A Change of Heart” along on FB and hope to see it going everywhere. The call is for not dehumanizing anyone no matter which side they’re on and I believe that’s one of the most important messages of our time.
Gandhi is said to have made the Hindu gesture of forgiveness as he fell from an assassin’s bullets. The Dalai Lama forgives the Chinese for what they’ve done to Tibet. Martin Luther King preached nonviolence no matter what happened around him. Taking in and living their message of maintaining love and compassion no matter what the circumstance seems to have been one of the hardest lessons ever for the world to learn.
At this moment in time the world needs us to stand together in love and compassion and refusal to be seduced into violence more than ever. And in the next post in this series, I’ll explore the group that’s been building and sailing under the radar for years. We could change the world.
