"You will never reach the place
where you will not need to be diligent
about your choice of thought.
Because you live in a world that is determined
to show you every pocket of despair.
So you must diligently choose.
But it gets easier and easier and easier to do so."
-- Abraham, Esther Hicks

For the last several days I've been writing about changing the world and that the only way to do that is to change ourselves first. Waiting on the world to change, especially when it comes to things that seem big, or global doesn't really get it done. The main reason is that we are not changing.
Raising our consciousness is tantamount to choosing the higher road, higher thoughts, and our consequent vibration. We want the world to do that, but it must begin here within. But, we say, these things like global warming, warring countries, terrorism, and such are too big for me to deal with. We need our governments to come together. And, they will when we come together first within our own hearts and minds, and then within our close community of those we see on a daily basis.
As we do so, as we change, we give silent permission to others to consider a similar change, then another, another, and pretty soon we can raise the consciousness of a family, a neighborhood, a town, and so on. Will everyone change? Whether they do or not is not our affair. If it were, we would be waiting on the world to change. No, we must choose the thought, change our habitual thinking patterns, and move around at a higher vibration.
Want to change the company you work for? This is how it is done. First, we change. Will the company eventually change? That is not our affair. We cannot choose for another, we can only choose for ourselves, then we can demonstrate in our presence (our consciousness, our vibration) who we now are. Will this have an effect? Absolutely. It always has a positive effect as we raise our own consciousness.
Our lower consciousness or vibration has been clearly displayed throughout time as far back as events have been recorded. Thousands of years of fighting, bickering, posturing, forcing others to think like us and so much more. It hasn't worked in all that time. And, here we are in 2017, with world leaders threatening nuclear war and calling each other schoolyard names. We can go back to anywhere in recorded history and see and hear this same insanity. It didn't work then, and it cannot work now.
As we are in our low vibration, we attract low vibration. For things to change, we must rise above that to a higher vibration where we attract the like in that. This is where love, kindness, mutual respect are.
This is the place where we realize that we are all aspects of the Creator of all things. This is where we see through the childish and violent rhetoric to see the aspect of the Creator that each person is deep within. As we honor that in ourselves, we honor that in another. It is not about agreement, believing the same things, or sovereign cultures. It is about mutual respect for who each of us is, for that within ourselves and for that which created all things--All-That-Is.
This is when things change. So, do we give away all of our awesome power to wait on the world to change? Or do we accept our power as the power given us by our Creator to change our own thoughts, and consequently, our vibration and our entire lives. As we accept and make use of this power, just by our very presence, we gift the same opportunity to others from this higher vibrational stance.
So what can we do as individuals? We can see through events and exchanges of other people and see them first as people, as aspects of the Creator as we are, and honor that in them as we honor it in ourselves. As we do this, we raise the vibration, and as we stay the way we have been for thousands of years, we continue in the low vibration that leads to destruction, distrust, anger, fear, dehumanization, and more.
I've come to this place of raising my vibration by realizing that I am an aspect of the Creator and honoring that in myself, realizing and honoring that same aspect in every other human being on this planet, and sending love instead of fear. This is what I finally realized that I can do. I have been given that power. I have not used it much in the past because I accepted the history and kept repeating it. Now, I have changed. I see that it has not worked in all the history of the world. To continue to repeat it is beyond senseless now.
I Diligently Choose To Ignore History And Change It Within Me.
Spread Some Joy Today--by allowing yourself to vibrate at a higher level and see the view from there.
