the shadow within

I have been quiet on the blogging front recently - I was writing on my own website for years, and let this blog go idle, but a few months ago my webserver started acting up, and I decided to give it up - as part of the ongoing simplification of my life, I no longer wish to involve myself in the complexities of administering a web server! Although I am now more concerned with becoming the living embodiment of my understanding - rather than analysing or trying to communicate that understanding - I nevertheless will return to posting occasional thoughts and inspirations on this blog, starting with this quote from a recent Charles Eisenstein article which touched a chord in me:
The world is governed by a secret power that holds us in bondage to no good end. But the conspirators are not others, they are we - you and I and everyone. A secret agenda of domination and control has existed in nearly everyone, and a world embodying that agenda has congealed around us, attracted to the dark, reptilian energies we have harboured. The good news is that these energies have nearly run their course, as the world of control breaks down, and the campaign to conquer and dominate all other being founders on its own consequences. Just as Voldemort was unable to possess Harry Potter because he couldn’t abide the love within him, so also is the ruling power of the world unable to abide our growing realization of our connectedness. Love, the felt experience of oneness, is spreading as the walls of separation come down. They never were sustainable. Today, even the most deluded – the power elite – are beginning to recognize that. The reign of the Illuminati is nearly over. That it seems to be reaching unprecedented heights only bespeaks the imminence of its demise - the extreme of yang giving birth to yin.

Evil and its expression as the New World Order - or as I would call it, the process of Separation - has, like all other things, its purpose in this universe. We embark on a journey of separation in all its forms - we reach its extreme, and we come back to Union at a higher level of complexity, enriched by our journey. To adopt the vocabulary of the New World Order myth, we might say that the reptilian overlords or the Illuminati have fulfilled their purpose. Though some might try to hold onto it a little longer, sooner or later they will accept that their time is over, and they will bow out of service.

The Illuminati - the Reptilians - are you and I... Can you not feel the obsolescence of that part of you - the part that endlessly seeks to control the world, to dominate others, to maximize egoic self-interest? Is it not increasingly evident that its efforts have created only misery? Is it not apparent that, no matter how hard you try to remedy its failure by intensifying its efforts, its ultimate failure is assured? For all of us, the time is coming for that part of ourselves to bow out, so that we can step into service, into trust, and, collectively, into the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

Thanks for dropping by Ron, and for your good wishes. Yes, we are past the dead of night, and, as they say, "the darkest hours are just before dawn". Now the sun is starting to rise. Namaste.

Namaste brother Ian, my absence from blogging has run it's course. Like yourself, I hope to become a more regular contributor. Thank you for sharing this quote, as well, for your ongoing commitment to shedding light where darkness resides. Your wisdom, as well, even keeled intelligence, always represent a welcome beacon during dark hours.

In Lak' ech brother Ian, prosper with love,, live with knowledge...
