DianeHB posted a topic in Current Events & Politics11/30/2017 DianeHB: Hello Michael. This is completely different from what I had planned on asking, but I had to change because current events are really scaring me. Namely, the current attempt to eliminate net neutrality and the tax plan that Republicans are trying to push through by the end of the year. I see significant damage to our freedom of speech on the Internet if net neutrality were to be struck down, and the more I learn about the tax plan, the more I see the death of the middle class. I am seriously scared and depressed. What do you see as the probability that these two things will get pushed through, and what are the likely consequences if they do? And if the world is going to hell in a hand basket, can you give me your higher perspective that helps me feel safe and move forward with courage? MEntity: What you are seeing is the shift into Mature Soul Age in full force. "Everything" will require a collective stand. It will require sharing consciousness and action. This is the only way forward: the collective participation in progress. It can no longer be shifted off as being managed by those in authority. It must be shared as a collective issue to solve collectively. MEntity: It will seem as if the world is "going to hell" because you have never seen this shift happen on such a large scale. You (in other lifetimes) have seen this in communities, villages, cities, etc. and opting into "the fight" was intimate and clear. When the Mature Soul shift happens on a large scale, the issues are on a large scale. MEntity: The Young Soul is doing what it will do: create scenarios for competition, control, challenge. This is going to seem and feel more desperate and dangerous as these scenarios are generated on a larger scale and in ever more insidious ways to fight the changes that threaten a world that no longer requires conquering. MEntity: You will likely begin to see several areas of society that have been in neglect and that have been taken for granted or left to authority rule as being overhauled by collective engagement and action. However, there does have to be a "hundredth monkey" in each of these. MEntity: Though the "hundredth monkey" theory originated from flawed observations, there is such a phenomenon. MEntity: You are seeing this now in the collective response to sexual allegations. The responses you see are those of people waking up, owning their power, and using it. MEntity: However, you also get to witness the fear and distrust that this collective power generates because it IS powerful. Collective control can easily be lost or derailed. MEntity: It is not a new kind of power, but on smaller scales it is more manageable. On a larger scale it can easily collapse under its own eagerness. MEntity: Our point being that even when collective empowerment rises in response to such threats, even it can feel scary. This is important to know because you may seek relief in collective response to a threat and then this response brings its own anxiety. MEntity: If both the threat and the solution are going to bring anxiety, then you must choose now to either own that anxiety and understand that you will have to live with it, OR recognize its uselessness and own your personal center of gravity, your trust, your sensibilities, your transcendence and uses these for navigation. MEntity: There are going to be things that you SEE and things that you KNOW. MEntity: You must SEE in order to KNOW, but one can often be so focused on SEEING that she forgets what she KNOWS. MEntity: Imagine that you break your leg. MEntity: It is broken. You see that it is broken. It will require intervention, treatment, recovery, time, care, etc. It is a fairly serious threat and derails mobility. MEntity: However, you KNOW broken legs can be survived and while there will always be risks of threat and vulnerability along the way of recovery, you do know that most broken legs recover just fine. MEntity: What you see is a broken leg. What you know is that it can be fixed. What you do not know, you do not know. MEntity: What you see is a paradigm shift in the world. What you know is that it is always survived. MEntity: What you see is every area of threat to social progress coming up for examination by those who want to secure it. What you see is every area of vulnerability finally being seen on a scale no one considered before and THIS IS GOOD WORK. MEntity: Think of the shift between broadcasting and cable. Not many saw the shift from free air broadcasting to controlled cable as a threat to society. Many embraced cable and all of the control over this media as it was packaged for the masses. There was little to no fight. MEntity: That will not be the case now. MEntity: So while it can look chaotic, exhausting, tedious, and overwhelming, the THREATS vs RESPONSES will be around for some time now because there are a lot of areas of society that have been left unchecked, dismissed, resigned to the control of a few who took positions of authority. You are not witnessing the fall of a civilization. You are witnessing its awakening to its collective power. MEntity: What you SEE is the mess. What you KNOW is that there are always growing pains. MEntity: To help you lose the division between what you see and what you know, it can be helpful to see the solutions, see the collective responses, participate in the collective empowerment, see the wonder of this awakening to a new power. It will look awkward, precarious, and even a bit unwieldy, but it is evolution. Evolution always confronts its obstacles. Evolution always looks back as it moves forward. DianeHB: I did see it with people rising up against sexual predators. It's just that the threats are coming so hard and fast that I forget again. MEntity: It can be helpful to remember, but even in your remembering, even in your knowing, you must allow room for the very real human emotions of anxiety and dread when facing a threat. Those are normal, natural, and important because they are what you have learned to trust in biological terms. Allowing room for these does not mean they must define you. What defines you are your choices. MEntity: You can allow room for your natural responses and then make a choice. MEntity: The choice is not always about how to change what you see, but to change how you feel about what you see. MEntity: Changing how you feel about what you see does not mean overriding what you feel, but adding to the natural feelings. You need not fight your feelings, but give them some friends, so to speak. MEntity: Give them your higher perspective, your confidence, your trust, your understanding, your patience, etc. Let these stand with your base feelings so that you define yourself as a spectrum with a range of choice, rather than anchoring yourself in reactions. DianeHB: That makes sense, thank you. MEntity: As for the state of net neutrality, the probability for its demise is at about 40%. MEntity: As for the possibility of the tax "reform" passing, we see this at 33%. MEntity: These are fairly high and will require collective response to halt or alter the momentum, but these scenarios are fairly manageable threats at this point. DianeHB: Thank you Michael, I appreciate your perspective. It helps a lot. MEntity: It can be helpful to surrender to the truth that you are witnessing a rise in collective empowerment and that it must confront all areas where power has fallen into the hands of a few or into hands that exploit the collective. MEntity: The boat will be rocked, so to speak, and wishing for stability or the comforts you once knew is not a solution. MEntity: Many comforts of the Young Soul Age are false and ensure collective sleep, however peaceful and calm and familiar they may have been. What you are seeing is a process of ensuring collective wakefulness. MEntity: We will conclude here for today, Diane. We have more to say, as usual, but can elaborate in further exchanges. Good day to you. Goodbye, for now.
