There’s a lot of buzz about ascension in New Age circles. People want to escape by ascending. “I’m really fed up with planet earth, it’s too hard. I want out of here, I want to ascend!”
You aren’t going to ascend until your feet are firmly planted on the ground. You aren’t a miserable human being reaching for a spiritual experience.You are a spiritual being having a human experience. This is why it’s important that you’re fully present in the here and now—in the here and now in your life stream. Ascension isn’t some kind of escape.
People need to learn responsibility. Responsibility is a big thing, because a lot of people don’t want to take responsibility. We’re all responsible for the situation on planet earth. You might try and deny it as much as you like, but each individual is responsible. You might say you’re not responsible for war, you’re not responsible for famine and things like this, but in fact we all are. Remember, we’re all One. You may choose to see yourself as a victim in your own life, or in our own country, or in your own street, but actually you’re not a victim of anything. We all have a responsibility in it.
We’re creators and co-creators. We create reality, and we co-create reality. Reality hasn’t created us. What you consider to be reality is not reality at all. It’s possibly a small fraction of it. But as my aboriginal friends say, “Wake up and dream!“ When you dream, your ego isn’t awake, so what you experience is actually real. When you’re awake you have to look for the realness in so-called reality. We’re only experiencing a very small fraction of reality. But the way we’ve allowed ourselves to be programmed, we think that what we see is what there is.
