In many cases, the changes are positive, advancing the seekers to a more expansive place in the above areas, and more significantly, enhancing the feelings of joy, pleasure and harmony on the way. But in some people, the acceleration they're experiencing seems to be towards the negative, a spiral into crises in the same areas, increasing feelings of despair, deprivation and frustration. I say "seems to be" because as others and I have written before, everyone is ultimately going to a place of higher consciousness and vibration, but some are choosing to swim against the current, while others are going with the flow.
One thing, however, that slows everyone down is the grip we have on expectations. Even those who are genuinely dedicated to their own enlightenment/self-actualization/ascension hold onto pictures of what it will look like when they "arrive." I've had some recent conversations with people about this, and shared some spontaneous insights that have come to me this summer.
I started to write a book while on vacation in the first half of July, an attempt to bring together all that I've learned, taught and written about since the run-up to 5D began 4 or 5 years ago. I'd been thinking for a while that my next phase of self-actualization was going to include being a writer for a living. I had the picture painted in HD in my mind. But here's what I came upon in the process of writing said book - everything is changing so fast, the paradigms shifting so thoroughly, the new tools becoming available so often that what I was putting down on the page was becoming obsolete as I was writing it!
So, with tongue in cheek, I quipped that I decided to plant a vegetable garden and focus on that instead!
Turns out not to have been a joke. What I've discovered is that the road to enlightenment isn't a path toward achieving grand outer goals, like great financial wealth or big "success" in a particular career or anything else "huge" that my ego-mind or intellect could conjure up. Mind you, those great things can happen on the self-actualized path, but they arrive as synchronistic "by-products," as it were, if they are aligned with a particular agreement you've made, or a destiny you have in your soul plan.
What I've discovered/am discovering is that the true direction of the journey is toward inner harmony and serenity, compassion and love (of self and others), laughter and finding joy in even the most mundane aspects of being a soul in physical form, like walking in the park, swimming in the sea, holding someone's hand... or watching a tomato turn red or a pepper yellow under a loving watch.
Here are the latest pics, verifying that I made the aligned decision! (And a song about getting "back to the garden!"
