The Energy Now

Yes. Yes. Yes. Late summer and autumn of the year 2000. Extremes. Ups and downs. Openings and closings. One may feel frequently off center, out of balance. One's old way of being in the world doesn't work any more. One can feel disoriented, as though one has outgrown oneself. The new pathways are still emerging. One is learning to let them emerge. People are learning these days that they cannot force things, make things happen, manipulate events and people with their will. Even if that approach seems to work for a while, it breaks down. These are demanding times. People are and will be experiencing increased demands from the outer world and from within themselves. A sense of pressure grows. People feel as though there is something that needs to be done, a task that has to be accomplished. There is. From our perspective, which is only one perspective among many, that task has to do with what we have been discussing: paying attention to one's own Awareness, developing one's own Awareness, entering more deeply into a greater Awareness. Look around you. What the world needs, today, tomorrow, next month, and in the years to come, is more people with a greater Awareness, who are living from and relating to each other from that Awareness rather than from their old conditioned habit patterns. This need grows more urgent.

Pressures build in many different ways. People have the sense that time is accelerating, and it is. The extremes will continue to intensify. It will be harder to find a place of rest in the outer world. Therefore it becomes increasing important to be able to find that place of rest within oneself, with the people around one, in small communities and groups. It will become increasingly different to find a sacred space in the outside world, therefore it becomes essential to find it within yourself, to be able to see the sacred in the ordinary, to create sacred space with others. The demand is for people to accept deeply responsibility for themselves, their actions, and growth.

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.
