I’ve been talking to some of the ‘consciousness gurus’ in our area. It seems that we in the Four Corners are ahead of the curve; the consciousness curve, that is. We understand that any and all events, seemingly good or bad have the potential to expand our consciousness. That’s good news, since we really seem to be getting tested in the 3D realm. Of course, being ahead of the curve, we also understand Spirit does not test us. God, the One Source, is perfect Love, right? So we must have created, or are creating from the wisdom of our Higher Selves, these tests to get us to fully expand into our human and Divine potential.
In this issue we have several articles that mention how reluctant we can be to look at ‘our stuff’. But that ‘stuff’ that we often judge as being so bad, is the fodder for the fire of transmutation. The things we think are obstacles to our expanding awareness, can be the very things that end up dissolving the ego so that our consciousness can evolve.
These are perennial questions for the Spiritual seeker: “How do we get from where we are, to where we want to be?” “What is the purpose of the ego?” “How do we work with our shadows?”
Do you wonder when you look at all the craziness in the world, war, poverty, greed, injustices and inequities of all kinds, are they real? Or do we experience it as real because we are projecting our shadow parts, mine and yours, that we have yet to examine? Does it all boil down to how well we know ourselves? We can have a set of Spiritual beliefs, but does that make us Spiritual? Not if we still engage in judging, blaming and justifying our need to be right.
As we approach the Summer Solstice and the midpoint of the year 2012, let’s look deep within for what is ready to be transmuted. We hope the articles in this issue will assist you in that process. And let’s remember that we are all in this together.
