I like the message in the video below.
This resonates with my own awakening and recovery from a relentless case of anorexia. Instead of focussing mostly on abuse and all of the things I could have shared or the fight between parts of myself (one deeply connected with the dark anti-life force that is anorexia), I focussed on what was most true –“the end game” as described here. That is why I’m alive today. Personal and collective awakenings are similar.
It’s important to find the place within us that is most healed. Darkness finds its way in where we have wounds. There are forces that would use this for their own agendas. People with good intentions are used without even knowing it is happening, so it’s important to remain connected with our own hearts/God/higher selves. I have practiced listening with my heart for what feels true. I filter everything and look deeper. I’m not afraid to listen to all kinds of information because I’m able to filter out what feels true and in alignment with my heart. If something feels “off,” I trust that. I don’t feel locked in to particular people/leaders/ideas as being all good or bad. I’ve had to leave that kind of black and white thinking. It takes some effort to navigate when things aren’t what they appear on the surface, but it is possible.
I have no doubt the end game (wholeness and unity) is where we’re headed.
