Ushering In A New Year
For Positive Transformational Change
Are you interested in seeing what difference you can make towards positive change, given what’s happening in the world? And maybe your calling isn’t politics, or directly taking action in the environmental organizations, or in any one of the other great organizations that are focused on ending hunger, saving children, as well as saving some of our endangered species. Yet you care deeply about these issues. There are many humanitarian crises that are confronting us now: firestorms and earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes, theunconscionable ways human beings can treat each other …
One can succumb to a feeling of helplessness in the midst of such overwhelm. But I boldly state, you can be a change agent of the most powerful kind. And you can be seemingly anonymous in the process. Your profession – or what you accomplish in the world every day, has nothing to do with it. Whether you are known, in the public eye, famous, or essentially anonymous – makes no difference.
YOUR POWER TO EFFECT CHANGE RESTS ON WHO YOU ARE BEING
WHILE YOU DO WHAT YOU DO.
You can become self-realized. Don’t let the words intimidate you or have you roll your eyes. This is a very attainable and pragmatic process in which to engage. And, by the way – it is the process that can free you to become the person you always dreamed yourself to be. No kidding. A self-realized person is a natural change agent. Change agent is one modern term for the true mystic.
THE TRUE MYSTIC WEARS NO ARMBAND ADVERTISING SUCH.
THE TRUE MYSTIC, AS A CHANGE AGENT, WALKS THROUGH ALL ARENAS OF LIFE: AS HOMEMAKER, LINE WORKER, CEO, EXECUTIVE, POET, TEACHER, STUDENT, ELDER,CHILD.
At any age, any gender, any role in life experience, any cultural or educational background, the true mystic emanates a serene countenance, listening from the cues of Infinite Intelligence, Omniscient Wisdom, and OmnipotentLove.
This modern mystic is a person who has cultivated the capacity to deal with their own inner turmoil, frustrations, and inauthentic expressions of self. The mystic turns to the Silence for intuitive guidance. Such a person consistently does the true inner work needed to cultivate Presence, being present to themselves as their purpose, their own authentic self-expression.
To have done this inner work is to have developed the capacity to act from being willing to be responsible for creating your experience of life. You can then be around reactive people and not get seduced into your own reactive response. You can maintain your bearings, your equilibrium, in the face of even extreme and dramatic behavior. The self-realized person knows that to react to another’s reactivity or drama, is to actually become the very behavior or action you are not committed to being.
This is a powerful freedom and a gift to give yourself. Grace permeates someone who understands the innate freedom available through the willingness to be responsible for creating his or her own life experience.
This attitude emerges from alignment with the Silence, and is quietly contented and hopeful. It is an attitude which delightfully anticipates the unexpected, and allows for people’s mistakes without judgment. Operating from this gentle stance, you cast your own light, resulting in that light permeating the environment within which you walk. Your presence raises the feeling of the environment to one of hopefulness and calm. Your light – at home, at school, or in the office – is simply the luminosity of the quality of your thinking. All is thought.
The thought is the thing.
Since the physics of a higher vibrational rate catalyzes the lower vibrational rate of the instruments around it, the resonance of your state of mind when aligned with the resonance of the Silence catalyzes the health in yourself, in another person, as well as in an entire system. The unhealthy system cannot stay the same if a consciousness of health and compassion remains withinit.
This is true leadership.
