If you pay attention to how you feel, not only does this help you clear the dregs and become increasingly self-aware, you gain some new qualities. Inner silence and happiness, personal freedom, and to the point, a much greater sense of what’s happening ‘in the world.’ That is to say what the feeling value in the group consciousness.
I’m not talking about psychic. Thats a different thing, associated with subtle senses*. This is simply an awareness of how it is with the group. I talked about this in The Push.
Sometimes it plays out in subtle ways. Sometimes more expressed, dramatic ways in the world. This one feels like the second. There is a strong restlessness in the air now. Not sure how widespread it is, but it seems to be.
People I know are suddenly making big decisions – leaving town, even the country. Changing careers. Making life changing decisions. Maybe just noticing things are not quite right.
The game, as they say, is afoot. The curtain seems to be opening on the next Act.
There is a great change underway. I talked about this in What’s Up and What More is Up. Every so often, we’ll see it reach a certain point, then some further change will take place in the expression, in the Play. Keep in mind that the world arises in consciousness so consciousness is a much better gauge of the world than the world itself is.
We are, as I have often joked, Stumbling towards Ecstasy. Fumbling our way towards who we really are. Discovering who we are changes everything.
Sarah McLachlin expresses it well in her song, Fumbling towards Ecstasy. It opens with the words:
All the fear has left me now
I’m not frightened anymore
Its my heart that pounds beneath my flesh
Its my mouth that pushes out this breath
And if I shed a tear I wont cage it
I wont fear love
And if I feel a rage I wont deny it
I wont fear love…
* Remember senses arise in consciousness as a feedback mechanism, so there is inherently less expressed values of them.
