Why I Love Conscious Community.

Via on Feb 19, 2013

Cosmic Eye Divine Awakening

The human spirit is waking up!

Bursting open, crying in ecstasy, laughing, fervent in joy, dancing, playing, leaping up and down in remembrance.

As a species of mankind, we are collectively recovering Spirit while simultaneously existing in the material world. I see it all around me. In spiritual communities especially, but even not—the unified field of love is seeping in, out and through from every corner of the room and infiltrating the ways of old paradigms as the standard of life is shifting—updating into a more refined, intelligent, aware, mindful, heart-centered, love dominated and conscious culture.

Conscious community is a gift—the highest blessing of reflection from individuals who are doing their own personal work towards self-realization. There is a base and fundamental understanding that they, we, are actually, yes, more than just a mechanism of a body flailing through the constructs of time and space. In turn they, we, are Spirit in the body, embodied as human being creatures moving through the breeze of time and space, AKA, life, together.

We are sincerely pursuing the exploration of who we really are—beyond what society expects and presents to be the model of living. Being a part of conscious community allows us to engage and step up to the plate of what we’re practicing internally into external action—that’s where the magic happens. You can be holy and peaceful all you want at the top of the mountain, but how’s life gonna be when you come back down? Being in relationship and reflection allows for tremendous growth. There is an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

For me, the more personal the mystical indicator in life becomes, the more I listen to it. My life has turned into a daily kirtan, call and response singing with God. “Which way, Universe?” A sign is then sent. “Oh okay, thanks for the heads up.” Synchronicities, coincidences, chance and luck are all another way to say, “The Divine Plan.” Divine energy wants to communicate with us at all times. At all times. Any kind of warrior knows this.

A warrior is one who is in commune with his Spirit. (By saying his, I am also including hers.)

“A warrior takes every opportunity to teach himself,” says Paulo Coelho.

The warrior asks questions and seeks to validate his own internal experience by affirmation of external life and vice-versa. Interior in harmony with exterior—that is the way.

Warriors on the spiritual path are constantly diving into themselves to accurately present and articulate what it is they are experiencing inside to express it back out into the world in a way that is truthful and in resonance with their heart’s call. They see beyond the eye and take chances with the marginal physical form. The warrior knows he must personally accept the responsibility of improving his own life. Everyday each and every one of us is granted the opportunity to simply show up.

Terence McKenna says, “If you’re not the hero of your own novel, then what kind of novel is it? You need to do some heavy editing.”

He’s right on. Your relationship with your self and with life, is a very personal dynamic. It’s your duty to wake up your spirit and enliven your soul.

McKenna also most eloquently states that, “there is a spiritual obligation, there is a task to be done. It is not however something as simple as following a set of somebody else’s rules. Understanding the Universe is your own responsibility because the only understanding of the Universe that will be useful to you is your own.”

Spiritual life means owning your power and every nuance and aspect of who you are and how your life manifests. It means you’re fully an adult.

This is the invitation and the challenge at hand. Can we, as human beings, take full responsibility for the movement of our lives and instead of stepping all over the feet of Grace with two left feet, depending on what kind of music is playing—can we slow dance, waltz and/or tango with Spirit, with Source, with God, with life?

I sure do believe so. I’ve got faith and I’ve got hope. And I’ve got life and conscious community around me to prove it.

Thank you to all the beautiful souls I’ve met and are meeting along my journey who serve as the most purest reflection of living from the heart in devotional and loving service.

Thank you to my teachers for so lovingly bestowing upon me the practices, knowledge and wisdom that would forever change the course of my life. Thank you for showing me the way.
