CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “On Maintaining Perspective In The Year 20-F*cking-20”

Whenever an author, filmmaker or other artist sets out on the noble endeavor of pointing people toward the ideal of living life to its fullest, they usually wind up depicting a character going off on all sorts of wild adventures, skydiving, trekking across the Himalayas, and so on.

In my opinion reminding people to live life to its fullest is the artist’s single most important job, but this is also where most storytellers get it wrong. Most people who live wild, interesting lives sleepwalk through the whole ride just like everyone else; in the end they’re left with a few amusing anecdotes rattling around in their skulls and a secret sense of dissatisfaction.

This is because most people don’t really show up for life. Even if they’re outwardly doing all sorts of amazing things and racking up a bunch of impressive accomplishments, their attention was mostly consumed with babbling mental chatter almost the entire time. Whatever happens in their life, they weren’t really there for it.

The real way to live life to its fullest is to simply be present for it.

I point this out because, at the midway point of the year 2020, I think it’s extremely relevant.

For better or for worse, we are at a time of great change from which the world will likely never return. We are heading into what is probably the most significant period in human history to date, and it would be wise to pay attention.

But when I look at what people are talking about in my social media feeds, even relatively awake and tuned-in people, I see a lot of chatter about the same-old, same-old. People are still yammering on about the same old electoral politics they’ve been on about for years, still babbling about PC culture being out of control and how crazy some people’s gender pronouns are, still dunking on shitlibs for likes and retweets. Even my own articles I notice get a lot more shares and attention if they involve something that tickles mainstream partisan interests like criticizing Trump or bashing the Democrats.

And I just cannot for the life of me imagine continuing to hold such priorities halfway through the year 20-f*cking-20.

At this time we need to drastically change our perspectives and seriously re-evaluate our priorities. We’re all standing on a precipice together and we have no idea what the plunge will look like, and people are still babbling about whether or not you should wear a face mask at the grocery store. This, to me, is a nonsensical approach to our current predicament.

All the stuff that used to consume so much of our attention in the analysis of establishment power structures has been rendered far less important by recent developments. All these recent developments will probably be rendered less relevant by whatever major events are coming next. The only consistent pattern this year has been a greater and greater deviation from old patterns.

For that reason, it makes sense to do two things:

Shift toward emphasizing a bigger-picture perspective of what’s going on. Fixate less on smaller occurrences and pay more attention to broader overall trends. It doesn’t mean ignore the smaller things, it just means view them in the proper context of a world that’s moving into more and more unfamiliar territory in bigger and bigger ways.

Pay attention. Big things are happening right now, and it would be a damn shame to miss them.

We are experiencing something huge here, and it would be a shame to let it go to waste.

We should rather all approach our current situation at this point in history like someone who is trying to live life to its fullest: mindful, curious, not hung up on petty mental narratives, and appreciative of how lucky we are to be here right now to witness this thing.

And, much like the approach of the end of life, this moment in history should ideally cause us to cast aside petty differences and bring us closer together.

REFLECTIONS FOR THE DAY ~ Lisa Renee on “The Afterlife”

“Most people do not think of what they will experience or feel when they reflect on what they have done with their life on earth, when they have transitioned to the next dimension. When communicating with earth based humans that have passed their body, the most prevalent experience I found was regret. Regret that they did not do more with their life. Regret they did not unconditionally love everyone. Regret that fear stopped them from achieving important events that would have changed their timeline and improved the lives of future generations. Life goes on after we drop the physical body, and it is as real as you can feel yourself right now. It is even more real than our lifetimes spent on earth.”

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Imagining ‘Life Culture'”

“Ascension essentially encompasses a universal perspective towards the compassionate practise of World Humanism and it includes the entire spectrum of life. All inhabitants of the world, no matter what race, religion, belief or creed to be equally deserving of benevolence, Empathy and Compassion. This is a clear example of how other advanced races beyond our solar system co-exist and live together that are actively participating with the intergalactic community and inter-dimensional free worlds. At this time the inhabitants of this Earth are fully excluded until these global problems of destructive violence and world suffering are directly acknowledged and steps are taken for disclosure which will begin the process of world healing. Disclosure is what is required to end wars, to stop directing the covert and overt military weaponry that is being used to mind control the population as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviours on this planet some in the intergalactic community believe the people of the Earth are criminals and alien hybrids from the Refugee Races that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many in this intergalactic community are wary of Earthlings. They’re distrustful of the people that come from the Earth. I truly pray in my heart, I truly hope that some day the people of this Earth will rise to change that perception and join the intergalactic community. How are we going to do it? Virtue based ethics. Basically what that means is — Be a good person!”

Let’s look at imagining what a Life Culture would be. In ES Guardian context, we call Life Culture — World Humanism. Imagine that we did live in a world where people wanted to live in harmony with the natural laws and therefore all people on the planet were treated with love, dignity and respect. They were equally educated in creating balanced and holistic lifestyles with others. Imagine that our communities and societies were founded upon organizational policies and programs that are based in a shared humanitarian value of co-creating world humanism, shaping our communities and world through modelling behaviours such as:

  • Unified cooperation and Service to Others,
  • Loving kindness, Compassion and Empathy,
  • Respect, dignity and harmlessness for all people,
  • Living in honesty, integrity, truth and transparency,
  • Being able to hold fairness and forgiveness and true Humility,
  • Wanting to experience consciousness expansion and higher learning through synchronicity,
  • Co-creating responsibly with Earth, nature and the animals,
  • And legitimate admittance to participate with the inter-galactic communities.

World Humanism is based in the re-education of human value — valuing human life. It emphasizes the importance of shifting from an anti-human or a death culture belief system into humanist based ethics and related philosophical principles. All human beings deserve humane treatment in order to live upon the planet with dignity and with basic access to meet their Fundamental Human Needs.

Our goal in the ES community is to practise this model when we can, the best we are able to apply humanistic, ethical philosophies blended with the spiritual principles of the Law of One to expand consciousness which inspires a direct knowledge and spiritual awakening experience. Ascension essentially encompasses a universal perspective towards the compassionate practise of World Humanism and it includes the entire spectrum of life. All inhabitants of the world, no matter what race, religion, belief or creed to be equally deserving of benevolence, Empathy and Compassion.

This is a clear example of how other advanced races beyond our solar system co-exist and live together that are actively participating with the intergalactic community and inter-dimensional free worlds. At this time the inhabitants of this Earth are fully excluded until these global problems of destructive violence and world suffering are directly acknowledged and steps are taken for disclosure which will begin the process of world healing. Disclosure is what is required to end wars, to stop directing the covert and overt military weaponry that is being used to mind control the population as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviours on this planet some in the intergalactic community believe the people of the Earth are criminals and alien hybrids from the Refugee Races that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many in this intergalactic community are wary of Earthlings. They’re distrustful of the people that come from the Earth.

I truly pray in my heart, I truly hope that some day the people of this Earth will rise to change that perception and join the intergalactic community. How are we going to do it? Virtue based ethics. Virtue Based Ethics emphasizes the focus upon developing virtues which strengthen the mind, strengthen the character and strengthen the spirit. For us in our interpretation this is the basis of building the strength of the spiritual foundation. It’s critical for the Light Body to hold higher consciousness and universal knowledge to learn what virtue based ethics is because this is what leads us to spiritual freedom. Now, more simply a virtue can be defined as a character trait that’s positive. Expressing virtuous qualities causes more positivity to ripple out into the world and that is the direct result of a person’s choice, a person’s choice in their behaviour and actions. When a person expresses virtuous qualities in their behaviours and interactions it contributes to the co-creation of personal well being and happiness. It also helps other people to reach that feeling of well being. In the spiritual context this is experienced as blessings, feeling a blessedness that guides our path forward which allows us to flourish and feel happiness and contentment in our lives.

The sentient intelligence of our Soul and Spirit if we learn to listen will always lead us to express many kinds of higher quality Virtues. The Soul and Spirit’s purpose is to guide each person to experience their own fulfillment of spiritual purpose and to flourish in peace and contentment while developing the deeper connection with higher consciousness. We create the state of well being, happiness, peace and contentment in our life when we have disciplined our selves to achieve the natural flow of expression of higher qualities of Virtues and ethics because this is what allows people to succeed and fulfill their higher spiritual purpose. Another way to express this is that when a person practises virtue based ethics in every area of their life no matter what kind of difficulty, adversity or challenges that comes their way they can defeat the obstacles in their path through the dedicated practise of expressing, behaving and committing to the strengthening of Virtue Based Ethics. Basically what that means is — Be a good person!
