When I first read the prediction coming from the Golden Age of Gaia team (more specifically, Archangel Michael, the channeled entity who recently spoke on the radio show An Hour With An Angel) that peace on earth will happen by Valentines Day 2015, all kinds of warning bells went off in my head.
Oh no, I thought. Another channeled prediction. I don’t want to be around if this falls through…
A lot of worries, concerns and judgments sprang up in my mind, and my first thought was to stay detached from the whole thing. Then, I asked myself why I felt that way; why I automatically assumed, with no doubt in my mind, that peace on earth wouldn’t be attained by this date.
The usual reasons came up – most of the world is still spiritually unaware or unaware of the necessity of peace, the world’s still in control of insane elitists who do everything they can to sustain war, Archangel Michael’s call/prediction couldn’t possibly influence enough people to actually create peace on earth, because after all, it’s a huge goal…Blah, blah, blah.
The reasons and detractions continued to flow in, and again, all I wanted to do was stay distant from the whole thing. And that’s what I planned to do, until I realized that my unwillingness to believe such a big goal could actually be possible was potentially inhibiting the world peace I (and so many others) want to see.
Sometimes, we have to think big to achieve big things. If I’m unwilling to believe peace can be attained by a certain day (albeit, a day that’s very close for such a big goal and doesn’t give us much time to achieve it), then maybe there’s a part of me that’s unwilling to believe it could happen at all.
It doesn’t have to be so black and white, but when I really think about it, I don’t know what’s kept me from believing this goal can be achieved except my own unwillingness.
With this unwillingness comes the desire to protect my image by staying distant from it all, and now, I’m asking myself why. There’s no need for the conscious community to care about image management, and when it comes down to it, my ego is what’s stopped me from thinking this goal is achievable.
Whether or not the predicted date comes and goes with no world peace doesn’t matter much to me. What does matter is my unwillingness to believe it can happen and my need to protect my image by staying quiet about it. I’m not saying I think it’s going to happen – I’m saying I don’t know what I think or why my instant reaction was disbelief and discomfort.
I still clearly have some inner issues to work through, but it’s okay because we all do. If we want to see true world peace, especially anytime soon, we’ll want to be brutally honest with ourselves and explore those parts of ourselves that are unwilling to believe such a monumental and important goal can be achieved.
We aren’t required to have faith in the predictions of channeled entities, and most conscious people are more comfortable ignoring those predictions, but every now and then, we’ll be forced to confront our self-created limitations. For me, this confrontation formed when I realized I was hesitant to believe this could actually happen, and it’s clearly something I need to work through before I can properly contribute.
We all want world peace, but if we’re unwilling to believe it can actually happen, we won’t get very far.
I’m not saying we have to believe in every world peace prediction we hear about, but why not believe it can happen? The willingness to believe in things most of society won’t accept is what got us to our current point in the first place, and who knows – maybe we could achieve big things if we open our minds a little more.
It won’t bother me if Valentine’s Day is uneventful in terms of world peace, because this whole thing has taught me a valuable lesson about myself and my unwillingness to believe.
Our collective unwillingness could make world peace unattainable, so maybe open-mindedness (and openheartedness) really is the best way to go.
No matter what happens, I’ve learned that if we don’t open our minds and consider new things – even big things that the ego would rather not endorse – we won’t make much progress in using love, awareness and spirituality to change the world.
