Connecting the Dots between Our Inner and Outer Worlds

Connecting the Dots between Our Inner and Outer Worlds
By Alisa Battaglia

I gather information, watch videos, listen to talks, blogs, read articles, study research, have discussions and opinions about different burning issues acting out in today’s political theater. Oftentimes, these ideas of humankind are thought-provoking that often leads me to make connections between an issue or situation—connecting the dots so to speak, to perceive the larger framework in manifestation. These connective links of information that form a working composite are checked and balanced against spiritual insight to weave inner connections. Many times the results are perceived at first to be negative in that they have the capacity to produce a fear reaction. Yet, from a wholistic perspective there is a silver lining that if perceived rightly and acted upon with courage, can create rapid fundamental change individually and for the planet.

While this may be true, I do find that few can read information and assess it without taking it inside themselves. This lack of detachment does little to enable best choices in this changing economic arena we are all facing. In fact, it can cause an utter rebellion allowing the ego complex to take reign over the higher wisdom of the Soul. We live in discerning times now where we must exhibit extraordinary courage and action to preserve our freedom and liberties for All before they are dissolved to an increasingly controlling government.

Fundamental change only takes place in attitude. Both life affirming and life destroying polarities are playing out upon the 3-D world stage. There seems to be a vying for power, yet the powers in struggle over consciousness are of two different energies and intentions, one being creative and expansive seeking to connect and liberate the Soul, while the other is banal and contractive seeking to detach and imprison the human Soul into automaton. We each must decide which side of fence we choose to sit on and be true to our choice. Wavering, by default puts in alignment with those who choose peril over Peace.

No doubt, many of us will be struggling in some way and at different levels. It may be financially to maintain a roof over our head, having enough food in the cupboard or affording the essentials. While for others, it may be in relationships, with attachments/addictions, finding our purpose and engaging in time critical missions to a struggle between ego-mind and Soul dominance. Wherever we are, we must start from that point and move forward. Don’t look towards others to find your inner truth. We can be lead to information and wisdom to potentate awakening, but we cannot rely on another to give birth unto ourselves. This is a lone process on our path of awakening, however others often help us get there padding the terrain via their presence, attention, love and care. Love relationships offer us a unique gift in that they are a fast track to our evolutionary growth. Praise them, embrace them! Dig deeper!

May this season open us to new paradigms, creations, and new beginnings for stepping into our individual and collective Soul power. Let us become the highest possible expression of life and to fully realize ourselves – to find our wings, connect the inner dots to our outer path and fly. Our Soul mate is waiting! Our Soul flock is waiting! It’s a unitary endeavor! We are the ones we have been waiting for! Let us construct a new path that bridges the divide in both self, with our divine lover, humanity, Nature and God. Let us uplift together and allow peace to fill our hearts for rebirth into a new life that can generate a world of Peace, both inside and out.

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

“To live with simplicity is to unburden our lives—to live more lightly, cleanly, aerodynamically.” ~Duane Elgin

At a time when we have heard the spectrum of excuses for the failing order and experience its unworthy actions that ask for our trust just long enough until the next dupe are the shifting of the pieces on the chessboard as a collective distraction. This peaceful warrior has recognized the timely fact that an inner re-evolution must meet the outer need.

Amidst the outer chaos and political theatre is a nebulous transition that is opportune in loosening the stranglehold on our body-mind. As these points of tensions meet, illusions are pierced and the desire for glamour loses its glitter. We see the magnetic lure as a weight on personal creativity and a downslide into mediocrity. We finally get that the deep focus on material things has been at the cost of spiritual values and we step back, shift our consciousness and redirect our growing pains from the global financial crisis towards the freedom of simplicity.

This simpler approach to life offers tremendous opportunity to serve the Souls plan as a great “army of implacable spiritual will,” in a time of momentous decision.

“Simplicity and union are related, for simplicity is one-pointedness of outlook and clarity of purpose, and these are descriptive of life lived at a point of spiritual tension. In such a state one becomes a participant in a process of distribution of spiritual energy from the highest realms of our planetary life to the outermost reaches of life on earth, and this is the opportunity [before us].” ~Lucis Trust

This period in our evolutionary history is called the “Aquarian Age” focused in goodwill—the sharing of resources with the collective consciousness, while holding steadfast our individuation. As a responsive cooperative channel—the collective heart of humanity makes every effort to release the water of life poured forth for a thirsty world. This sharing of higher values and clear spiritual focus in all human relations is the gift of the Aquarian Age, as it contains the seeds of solution to the world’s crisis on all levels of living, both personal and in all relations, human and otherwise.

Let us as a cohesive, united force of Light begin to understand the significance of “Global Communion” aka group service in these early stages of human consciousness development and set an example the characteristic of sharing—the will-to good. Sharing in authenticity opens the heart and lets in the flow of Love to absorb, circulate and distribute into the veins of culture throughout the world. Alice Bailey wrote that, “this sharing, beginning on the physical plane, will prove equally true of all human relations and this will be the great gift of the Aquarian Age to humanity.”

We are wise to broaden our consciousness to the fact!

Thoughts on Freedom

Thoughts on Freedom
By Alisa Battaglia 

 

“A Nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”~Marcus Tullius Cicero 42B.C.

 

The age of modernity is all about the expert. Without the degreed opinion obtained by the expert it seems that our world would be at a loss for common sense. Why must we have a degree in law to be qualified to know what the laws should be and how they are enforced? Why must we be a professional politician to hold office to make the laws and govern the country? Ponder why, when nobody has any more right to lead than another. “No right to govern comes from birth, education, might or money.”

Ordinary people with a vision founded our nation. They were farmers, merchants and the like. These thinking individuals wrote their vision that is the United States Constitution and they established a government modeled by that vision as well as to the world. We do not need lawyers, politicians or any other experts to direct this nation. Perhaps we might consider a “thinking degree” so that we may begin to “think deeply” about what actually matters in terms of redirecting this nation – to return to a “government of the people…by the people…for the people.” Common sense from the common people, not professionals, gives us the best government. A government of the common man in which those with the public trust demonstrate, not only with words, that all men and women are equal under the law, but that everyone is equal in the privilege to govern.

Our founding generation understood well that government is a threat to liberty and, therefore, it must be forever held in check not only by formal constitutional fetters but, more importantly, by an ethic of skepticism by citizens. It’s both foolish and un-American to suppose that such powers pose no significant threat to the liberties of the very people they ostensibly are designed to protect.

Our Declaration of Independence spells out the relationship of government to the governed:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Today, with the changing technological landscape affecting how people relate and interact with one another and to life reveals a breakdown in common sense values,
as virtue is turned into vice and vice into virtue. I propose a New Planetary Ethic where Albert Einstein’s quote says its best: “Our morality in our action can give beauty and dignity to our lives.”
