The Power of Collective Consciousness

Spread the love

[Note: This is written by a local new thought minister.]

October 10, 2008 – “It’s not what they take away from you that counts.  It’s what you do with what you have left.” – Hubert Humphrey

 

With all the news of late it’s easy to fall into the morass of gloom and doom.  When you look at your most recent investment statement, you may be tempted to focus on all that you’ve lost.  It’s the topic of the day. 

 

We’ve been in such a booming market that people seem to forget there is risk involved in any investment, even the ‘safest’ ones.  Risk and reward are equal components and possibilities in any investment, whether that investment is financial or whether it is an investment of the heart. 

 

We don’t control the world, we don’t control the financial markets, but we do participate in creating the world and the financial markets by how we react, what we feed into them and what we really expect to happen next. 

 

Right now the biggest expectation is that things will continue to get worse before they get better.  Guess what?  When most people believe that, feed that idea with fear and fixate upon every move up and down in the market, that expectation becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. 

If we believe that things will eventually get better, why do we believe that they have to continue to get worse first?  Just to see what we can take, test new territories, set new records?  Why not skip that experience and get moving onward to the recovery? 

 

This is no different from what we each go through individually any time we have a challenge or a disruption.  We choose how to react, what to focus on, what to give our energy and attention, what to expect and then what to do with what we have. 

 

The difference is that we are all experiencing this together.  We are watching the power of collective consciousness create our collective experience.  What a great lesson in the Law!  What a great opportunity to grow beyond our current level of thinking that created this experience!  Let’s learn from this and point out to people how we can use this very same process to affect change for the better. 

 

What the world needs now is a committed group of individuals who will stand in the midst of this ‘crisis’ and know something better.  I invite you to join me in doing that.  Do that right in the face of the ubiquitous stock ticker that seems to be everywhere all of the sudden.  Do this right in the face of the bleating newscasts.  Do this (with love) in the face of those yelling about how the sky is falling. 

 

We will get through and beyond this; the only question is what will be the quality of our journey through it and how lovingly we treat each other along the way.

 

I choose love, I choose brighter ideas, I choose to absolutely know that good is right here and now available to all.  That’s what I can do, and so can you.

 

Life is truly wonderful!
