How can we effect change without losing inclusivity?
Michael said recently:
“Do not get caught in the drama of white hats or black hats, or good guys or bad guys. All beings are birthed directly from the Heart of One upon this beautiful Planet of Gaia, and far beyond.
“There is no being beyond redemption, beyond resurrection, beyond recognition. All energy is light and love, and it will find its way back to the One.” (1)
No one. I once asked him how one of the most nefarious figures in human history was faring on the other side and he began by saying this was a most unfortunate case.
If I told you whom he was talking about, your eyebrows would probably go up.
Working against our desire to be unitive and inclusive is the level of mind we call the ego.
The ego sees itself as separate and struggling for survival amid seeming scarcity. It creates the justifying belief that it and the group it identifies with are superior and others who compete with it for the same resources are in some way inferior.
This viewpoint has been around probably since the dawn of history. Empires from Sumeria and Rome to the present-day have been based on enslavement of so-called “inferior” races.
The natural-selection principles of Charles Darwin gave the racial-supremacist movement new form and fire. Let’s listen to how Darwin puts the matter:
“At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races.
“At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state, as we may hope, than the Caucasian and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla….
“With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilised men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox.
“Thus the weak members of civilised societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.” (3)
We have much to look back upon with deep regret.
Today Darwin’s views on eugenics and society are called social Darwinism. There’s nothing humane about them and nothing that leads to the unfoldment of what we think of as Ascension.
Though Michael advises us to resist the temptation to subdue and punish, we still face the task of stopping the depredations against humanity, before the time when higher levels of love make that task effortless. How do we do it?
For me the answer is two-fold.
First, focus on behavior rather than people.
If we need any more powerful evidence that focusing on people doesn’t work, the human race created it in the Second World War.
There was an attempt to wipe out whole peoples and social groups like Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, homosexuals, and others. It not only failed; it brought misery to millions of people.
Now it’s imperative for us to eliminate the behavior but help the perpetrators come back into the tribe. This Ascension is inclusive.
Michael offered us the Company of Heaven’s perspective on the matter:
“All dimensions, all reality, all experience, all expressions of Nova Being on Nova Earth are intended to be of love. When you extend yourself in love – not buying into the chaos or the intrigue, or this faction or that faction – when you simply redirect aberrant behaviors, terrible behaviors, abusive behaviors, then what you are doing is extending hope and forgiveness and compassion. Not only to those who have been the victims of abuse, of betrayal, but also to those who have acted in such a misguided, miscreated way.
“Old Earth has been based upon punishment and reward, and it has created factions of haves and have-not; of those in power and those who are powerless. It has created such fragmentation that unity became a dream, a thought, a hope.
“When you extend love and forgiveness – when you model and mentor love and forgiveness, peace and compassion to those that have erred, to those that have created and fully participated in chaos – then what you are doing, beloved, is laying down the new paradigm: what it means to be human; what it means to be Gaian; what it means to be your true ascended self.” (2)
This involves the second tack, moving from seeing things from what Werner Erhard once called an us-against-them perspective to an us-and-them perspective. He called for ours to be a “me-and-you” world.
We’re going to have to make the leap.
What Michael says is true: All of us, even the most wicked, have a soul, which is a spark from the One Divine Fire. All of us are firebrands plucked from the burning. (3) All of us are thus equally Children of God.
But it isn’t enough to simply think that. It has to show up in our words and actions, in our principles and laws. And for that, it has to show up, not from our egos, but from our hearts.
Eventually the rising energies will give us the buoyancy of love that we need to make the leap easily. But do we want to watch the continuing toll of competitive, conflictual predations from now till that time?
How does this new paradigm of meeting hatred and criminality with love really work?
