A friend recently made a good point: the youth are partly responsible for helping others become aware of the global shift in consciousness taking place. The masses need to know what’s happening, and if you’ve experienced a spiritual awakening, there must be a reason for it. Young or old, you’re here to help.
The youth aren’t the only ones here on a mission to share what we know. This job is entrusted to people of all ages, but by educating ourselves, spreading knowledge, and supporting the struggle for freedom across the world, we can inspire more people to take a stand. We can energize this revolution.
With all this in mind, here’s my perspective on the consciousness shift and the love that drives it.
The World Is Evolving
Simply put, the world is evolving. A quick glance at society might make you think we’re moving backwards, but if you look deeper, you’ll see that something incredible is happening.
Around the world, people are fighting rampant government corruption and protesting the massive corporations destroying the earth for profit. The masses are finally starting to care about the environment, and people are pioneering new ways to produce everything we need without carelessly polluting the earth.
We’re taking a stand for things that matter and sacrificing our egos for the greater good. Instead of letting apathy flatten us, we’re letting compassion inspire us. The great thing about it is that it’s happening worldwide. It’s not just some trend in any one area; this awakening is spreading to every corner of the globe.
More evidence of this global shift can be found in the massive number of people embracing independent spiritual paths. Instead of letting a pastor or guru tell us how to live, we’re learning to trust and live by our personal truth.
Each person’s truth is unique, so rather than follow the herd, we’re letting the inner voice guide us along roads less traveled.
The inner voice communicates with each of us differently, so it’s foolish to assume only one truth is correct. Thus, we follow the intuition with respect for the ways it guides others. This eventually leads us to discover the heart’s power.
No More War
We’re becoming aware of the need to resolve our problems peacefully rather than through war. Along with peace, we’re embracing compassion by speaking out against war for the sake of the lives lost and the lives that have yet to be lost.
We no longer see war as something inevitable that we don’t have to worry about because it happens far away. We ditched this mindset long ago, and we now see that war affects everyone no matter how far away it seems.
The children whose lives are lost in war could just as easily be ours. Therefore, we advocate peace and the complete cessation of war. Nothing less.
Revolution of Love
The biggest indicator of a global shift is that people are open to love; the most important creative and revolutionary force at our disposal. Compassion, selfless service, and the cries to end war all come from love.
When love flows, we don’t want to see anybody hurt. If we can prevent it, we surely will. When love flows, compassion is second nature. We can put ourselves in someone else’s shoes instead of claiming it’s not our problem and moving on. When love flows, we discover the purpose of life and inch closer to enlightenment.
If mankind can be open to love, we’ll surely reverse our course and heal, rather than destroy, our only planet.
Admittedly, it’ll be difficult to help people become aware of the power of love without infringing on anyone’s unique truth. The purpose of this revolution is not to gain followers or convert anyone, but to invite people to let love into their life and do something positive with the compassion it inspires.
Intuition and the Power of Love
You might be asking why love should even be a part of other people’s truth. If the purpose of this revolution is not to gain followers, then why expect people to be open to something just because you are? Surely, not everyone believes in this power.
In my opinion, love is something you don’t have to believe in. It exists on a level beyond philosophy, belief, or personal truth. Everyone eventually discovers it as it works its way into their life.
The intuition encourages you to be heart-centered, and this subsequently enhances your intuition and your understanding of the power of love. Before you know it, this power will be at your fingertips.
We’re evolving by learning to live from the heart. Everything else (like resisting corrupt governments and corporations, finding compassion for those who need it, and evolving spiritually) will flow from there.
If you want to help the world in a big, bold, undeniable way, start living from the heart. Millions of others will join you. Along the way, try to spread the word about love, compassion, and all the other divine qualities that will ensure this revolution is successful. Don’t be afraid to use your voice. Be excited.
Something as amazing as a global shift in consciousness doesn’t happen every day, and we can be a part of the fun. Why be afraid to speak up? Let the world know what’s happening, and make it clear you intend to contribute.
