MATEO SOL: “Why Our Political Instability Will Continue, And Crisis Is OK”

“Genuinely wise, balanced, whole, and mature politicians are rare. Too many leadership choices are motivated by greed and fear and enabled by immaturity, paranoia, and lack of moral development. The politicians we have today are spiritually stunted and immature, yet despite this, they continue to get elected.”

~Mateo Sol

 

Recent events seem to show our world being turned upside down. With political, ecological, economical and religious stress everywhere, we’ve been experiencing one crisis after another, with no end in sight.

Can anything good come out of this?

Although there is currently a wave of change occurring at a global scale, the natural state of human beings is one of crisis.

We are the only living beings (that we know of) that are aware of our own existence, of the changes we go through internally and externally, and how we expect the world should be. We are constantly in the process of going from the known toward the unknown, the familiar towards the unexpected. It’s no surprise that we are constantly in crisis, the crisis of being alive. We feel this crisis in our perpetual states of existential anxiety, tension, and anguish.

Why is Crisis Necessary?

Our basic spiritual desire to answer the questions “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” are born from the crisis of being alive and not knowing what on earth to do with ourselves.

At a fundamental level, we’re wired to dislike change because it is something we (the ego) can’t control. But our resistance to growth keeps us stranded in a state of stagnation. As a result of this inner stagnation, many of us try to fill this void with all kinds of distractions: work, material consumption, travel, food, socializing, movies, video games, and much more.

The truth is that this abyss within us is always here. But many of us refuse to face this void until we’re forced to, usually through a crisis of sorts.

Every great change in history has occurred in a period of crisis. From Martin Luther King’s revolution and Gandhi’s movement to the French Revolution, the most effective changes have come from the most intense periods of dissatisfaction.

And we’re in such a period right now.

With political and social instability on the rise, we’re starting to see the wide-reaching impacts of chaos and the way it breaks apart our old patterns and paradigms.

Have you ever noticed that when everything is static, we as a collective feel socially indifferent to any particular view? As a result, not much change is possible. But when chaos arises, change is not only inevitable, it is destined.

This is why crisis is actually a necessary force. Without it, we would be stuck rotting away in our ingrained habits, beliefs, and structures.

Rethinking our system and structures is expensive, and there are a whole bunch of people who are invested in preserving the status quo. This system is protected by wealthy elites armed with the power of law, privately owned media, large multinational companies, propaganda, the police force, and the army.

The only way that we, as the other “99%” can make a real, soulful change, is through the force of crisis. Crisis is the only thing that can motivate us enough to change the way we think, feel, and behave.

We have come to a point where a new vision is needed. It has never been needed as much as it is now. Not only is our Earth in an ecological crisis due to our abuse of it, we’re also experiencing a severe political crisis with untold future repercussions.

For these old foundations to dissolve, we must lay new foundations. But for the new to be born, there must be some birth pains. That’s what the crisis we currently face really is.

Why Our Political Leaders Are Immature

The history of politics in Western civilization is full of stories featuring power grabbing or, at best, well-intentioned but psycho-spiritually immature leaders.

Genuinely wise, balanced, whole, and mature politicians are rare. Too many leadership choices are motivated by greed and fear and enabled by immaturity, paranoia, and lack of moral development.

Perhaps our political system is a reflection of our society and education systems that teach us to contribute to the “common good” through self-interest. In our society there is little consideration or exploration of what the “good of the whole” might mean or exploring the primordial questions: “How should I live?” and “How should we all live together?”

Yet when we trace back to the origins of politics we realize how divorced it is from its original Socratic intention as the search for the ideal “good life.”

The good life for Socrates had two primary aspects: what he called “the improvement of one’s soul,” and on the other hand, there is the improvement of one’s society. This sort of Socratic knowledge was what he called wisdom.

This pursuit of wisdom cannot be simply legislated or bureaucratically enforced. The government is only an institution, human-made, and cannot provide the wise society that we seek.

Instead at the center of such a cultural and consciousness revolution must be a spiritual, intellectual and moral rebirth of ourselves as individuals; what Socrates disciple Plato referred to as “Periagoge,” or “a turning around of the soul” toward truth, beauty and good.

Why We Desperately Need Mature Action Right Now

The politicians we have today are spiritually stunted and immature, yet despite this, they continue to get elected. In the end, our leaders are a reflection of us as a society, and as a planet at large. Therefore, our social and ecological health are entirely dependent on our capacity as voters to do some intense soulwork, and go through a genuine process of human maturation.

Only once we have more matured Souls on this planet will we realize that “self-interest” actually includes the concern for other people because we are all interconnected.

The current state of our world brings great despair and anguish to all of us, this is especially true for the old souls with mature hearts among us who feel the rape of society and torture of the earth more intensely.

Mature action involves preserving and protecting all that is left while simultaneously exploring our inner selves and reconnecting to our Souls.

Whether it be political or charitable action, mature action must come from an inner place of humbleness, rather than from a place of “needing to do good” which can easily be tainted with all kinds of needs, such as self-gratification, power, and control — as is the case with so many politicians today.

ADEANA M. SLATER: “Most Soul Progress Comes From The Biggest Challenges”

Most soul-awakening articles that you read may sound redundant. Why is this? You may realize that the majority of Lightworkers often repeat themselves in articles to really “drive the points-HOME.” This “Home” is your birth-rite reality. It is like taking you back to where you were and consciously/collectively vibe’d as a whole. You are finding this place again that has sat dormant for eons of time. Only this time you are ever ready to make it better and make sure you can say that these “points really add up” over time. We have newly awakened souls who are looking for articles and information from so many other Lightworkers around the Globe for assistance, support, and clarification overall.

Change is occurring, whether you realize it or not. You may be the one screaming, “enough is enough!” You have experienced this rollercoaster of Ascension perhaps more than you desired. It seemed to continue on like a broken record. One thing after another occurred for you. Tower moments came and went. You experienced an awful lot of triggering events. Anything that you endured has made you wiser, stronger, and more equipped to tackle the next set of adverse interactions. This is never to discourage you or disappoint you, because you are a soul-warrior that can do absolutely anything your heart desires. Please realize that most soul progress and healing comes from the biggest of challenges. Your emotional reaction and personal perception to any event that perpetuates in your life is for you to make the most of it.

No one else is your moderator. No one else can tell you how to act, react, live your life, feel, respond, or what to do. This does not mean we, as a collective, wish for utter chaos to fill our streets with crime and unruly actions of hated. The idea here is that we increase in higher consciousness. This will naturally bring all of us out of these dense low energies that encourage us to fight amongst one another as opposed to bringing us together in unity. Our goal as a collective consciousness is to find the unity within all of us that binds us and supports our efforts as ONE. This effort is expanding greatly and to which you should all be proud of! You are asking how you specifically are making a difference, as if you are not. You do and are!! We are moving ourselves faster and father than projected.

With soul projection, growth, and expansion, it was a difficult gauge to begin with. There was no way to honestly and accurately gauge the progress or growth of the collective consciousness.

Why?

Because the domino-effect cannot be guessed. It’s a process that must be played out.

The influence of Energy fluctuates. Energy is a constant flow at a particular timeframe. The reaction to this energy is the fuel to the fire so to speak and reacts accordingly. Please know that timing is everything and do not be discouraged or disappointed if anything transpires without your specific attachment to do so. We know we are moving faster and farther based on the consciousness achieved thus far.

It is best if you are able to release any and all attachments as you move yourself along. Another words, I know it is difficult when you are faced with the options for change. The least you attach to outcomes or expectations, the better for you to minimize disappointments or added heart break. Everything happens for a reason. Absolutely everything. You are NOT a victim. There is no Pity-party awaiting you in any realm of reality you choose to create for yourself.

You see… this magical land of the new Earth that we are all collectively and consciously creating, is of love, unity, peace, joy, and forgiveness. Anything else is our stepping stones to get to these ultimate goals. We are well our way!! Congrats in advance!! The ripple-effect is in full swing. It’s unstoppable.

Love and blessings to you all.

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “It’s Better To Do Nothing Than Do Things For The Wrong Reasons”

It is but human conditioning to do desirable things to avoid doing things that are not desirable. This is the dilemma for most of us. In so doing, when we have done the things that are desirable by every human soul, we expand our egos and secretly tell others: Look at me, I’ve done it. I’m good.

We then become self-righteous, judging others for their meager progress. This is most especially true for most people who offer service in religious or other similar advocacies.

Glorifying people for their good deeds while not bad in itself, it still coupled with negative effects, especially when the person receiving the glorification is spiritually immature.

It’s better not to do things than do it for the wrong reasons. I desire heaven because that is where I come from. There is no need for me to avoid hell because, heck, I’ve been there!
