All life is sacred.
In the Book of Genesis, there is a story of Creation. First, spirits/souls are created in the image of the Creator. Then, a body is formed from the dust of the Earth and Life is breathed into it. Later, there is a separation into male and female.
Separation is but an illusion. We are all one. And we are never alone.
We are all part of Creation. This Universe we live in is part of Creation. We are all, therefore, part of the Creator, for Creation and Creator are one. And since the One overseeing this Universe, the One we call God, we are also part of God.
Some do not believe there is a "God". Yet, in denying a deity, the idea of Divinity is acknowledged. Perhaps, some deny a god made up by others or separate from themselves. Or the image of the divine some proclaim is betrayed by ones claiming belief or the image itself is unbelievable. Some simply will not believe in a deity invented to keep people in line through fear. And some will not accept a god who gives us free will on one hand and appears to interfere on the other. Some may not have a personal deity, preferring to focus on an Ideal, such as Beauty, or Love.
Some say there is only one God, by whatever name. However, differences between humanity and divinity are often the focus, obscuring God’s true nature. For instance, Hebrews, Moslems and Christians allegedly share the same One God but see Him and His ways differently. Practioners of all three have beliefs and tenets at odds with a God Who is Love. Some hold “an eye for an eye”, while others may teach “forgiveness” and profess love for all, yet engage in bias.
Some believe there are many gods, each overseeing an aspect of daily life. The ancient Egyptians had many gods, while some also believed Ra to be the One God. The Greeks and Romans had quite a few gods, each with a main god, known as Zeus and Jupiter, respectively.
The Hindu have three equal aspects of a Supreme Reality, a Trinity. Brahma, the Creator, is responsible for Creation. Vishnu, Keeper of Creation, maintains the Welfare of all. Shiva, together with his other half, Shakti, is responsible for dissolution and recreation. All three work together, assisted by other devs and devas, keeping the world running smoothly. It is said there are 330 million gods, a number which represents each one of us.
Indigenous Americans honor the Creator, called Gitchi [Kitchi] Manitou, Bactamo, Kishlamakong, etc., plus all the manitou who help keep Creation flowing in harmony. Gratitude is daily expressed for blessings received and Mother Earth is honored. Humans’ caretaker responsibility is recognized, along with preserving Earth’s resources for the generations to come. Physical separation from "civilization" until the 15th century, may make remembering our spiritual nature easier than it is for many who have long been 'blessed' with the benefits of civilization. Sadly, many now are also in danger of forgetting.
Some think we are all gods, or gods in the making, since we are all part of God and the Creator.
Which point of view is true? Is it possible they all are? Or, that all viewpoints have some basis in Truth?
And what of the God Who is Love?
Throughout history, there have been all kinds of disputes about the various aspects of divine nature. Perhaps, it’s time to focus on the aspects on which we agree and which are beneficial to us and our destiny. It’s time to get to know God.
The Mayan tell us 2012 is the end of the 5th Age, the Age of Movement - Duality, characterized by polar opposites: good/bad; positive/negative; war/peace; individuality/oneness. It is the start of the 6th Age, the Spirit of Living Things - Awareness - the beginning of Oneness. The Mayan 7th Age is to be the Place of Melting into One - return to original oneness.
As we transition into the 6th Age, dualities are slipping away. Either/or is no longer the dominate condition. We are more open to coexisting with each other, to allowing each other to be ourselves; to follow our hearts as the rising energy levels on the Earth Star makes it easier for this to occur. As we develop "new" traits and abilities, we are seeing things in a new light, seeing the light.
To those who would control humans for their own purposes, 2012 is to be the end of Earth, Terra. The shadow riders would have us forget it is a beginning. Various opposing religious, political and economical beliefs have been promoted, fostering discord, conflict and fear to keep humans off balance and in servitude in order to support their very existence, as well as satisfy their greed and lust for power. The dark cannot support itself. It is a parasite, a contagion, living off fear.
War is promoted to set up imbalances. During Aries, the Age of Warfare, 2160 to 60 BCE, people were controlled with blood. This continued into the Piscean age with mass warfare and blood spilling replacing women's blood rites to fertilize the earth. Those fighting wars are trained to forget their humanity. They may feel alienated and be difficult to live with, even with themselves. Material greed combined with the looting of natural resources without consideration for the environmental impact of what we do is one of the downfalls of our current civilization.
Control, however, is an illusion. Nothing happens to us unless we allow it. And we have allowed it.
We must change our ways.
The Golden NOW.
This is the turning point in our existence here. Life is changing dramatically on planet Earth. For one, our experience of time is changing. In 3D, we move linearly through time and space. Things happen one after another, in a single time line, with our eye ever on the clock. We have even allowed ourselves to be controlled by the clock.
Time, however, is more like a string held up so that it hangs as a single strand which is then dropped. The resulting circular criss-crossing mass with multiple intersections is a more useful image of time than the illusion of linear time.
As Earth moves into the Golden NOW, we live in the present. We continue to notice the movement of Earth in relation to the Sun and the Moon, with sunrises and sunsets, but clocks don't matter.
To enter the Golden NOW we must let go of fear and all that is fear based: war, anger, greed, jealousy, hate, violence, anxiety, stress, etc. We must also live without illusions to remain with Earth. We must be one with our multi-dimensional and multi-tasking Soul.
