An Essential Choice
By IAM SAUMS
“We either bury our heads in the sand or choose to make our stand.”
As It Seems:
Society is an abomination. What have we become? Why have we allowed it to get to this level of delusion, depravity, destruction and death? Why do we enable and embolden the industries of economics, medicine, politics and religion? How can we wield our desire, entitlement, ego, intelligence and self-righteousness as weapons of social destruction to protect our fears, failures and insecurities? Will we find the courage, intention, strength and willingness to defy our arrogance? Will we choose to claim and express our unique power to transform the nightmare we have enabled with our lives? Are these impossible questions to be debunked with our cognitive dissonance or opportunities to shift our experience?
As It Is:
The impacts of events over the last 18 months have been devastating beyond our wildest fears. Conflict, corruption, cruelty, disease, inequality, injustice, poverty, prejudice and war have become our nature. We cannot observe how society is, turn and point the finger at our opponents, then claim victory on Social Media to make ourselves feel better about our own apathy, denial, indifference and judgement. Our arrogance, entitlement and obscurity are obvious when we see how we helped cause and spread this madness. Yet, we plod on with our egos, ire and opinions in tow, minute men and women for the timeless debate of wit, wile and wanton. Are we willing to be accountable and shift our focus from oblivion to awareness?
Totalitarian organizations are enforcing modifications to the dynamics of our being, preventing us from being in flow with our heart, soul and the universe. Over the last few decades, our social environment has become inundated with toxicity. The effects of which are rarely acknowledged, yet often exhibited as disease, egotism, negativity and violence. All of this, combined with the current conditions of disorder, inequity and prejudice, have rendered social reality uninhabitable. Our bodies, minds and hearts are being distorted, manipulated and terrorized by the calculated, callous nuances of simulated society. The sacred cord that connects us with the universe is being severed. Social reality is segregating us from our soul.
The greatest side effect of the current pandemic is not physical illness or the fear of contraction. It is not even the mainstream media assault we have all had to endure. The deepest impact is on our adrenal glands and nervous systems. Our social environment disrupts our natural balance. The stresses of common perception and impending doom have frayed and fatigued our instinctual sensibilities, leaving us tattered and torn beneath the gravity of social reality. We have all been broken, burdened by a constant barrage of consumable anxiety and disease, spinning us out, turning us around, inside out and upside down. Our constant, collective focus on it has completed the vicious cycle.
“We have given away our power for the fantasy of Social Reality.”
As much as recent events impact us physically, the psychological effects are as or more devastating. Mass fear and hysteria has been imposed upon the world’s population with a biased broadcast of information and a relentless campaign, laden with evident agendas. This is the principal cause of adrenal fatigue and stress exhaustion now rampant in society. Yet, it has also distorted, dominated and manipulated our thoughts, scrambling our neural pathways and transmitting destructive signals through our minds and bodies contributing to our imbalance. This has compromised our already fragile immune systems, rendering us susceptible to delusion, disease, degeneration and death.
This last year has been an emotional tug-of-war. Whether it is the official narrative on which the pandemic is widely reported in contrast to alternative and holistic viewpoints, the intensity of the US Presidential election, classism, inequality, injustice, racism and unrest, the will of the people is broken. The necessity to defend our unique perception exacerbates our social climate. Common acceptance and understanding are eagerly abandoned. Our hearts are overwhelmed both physically and emotionally under the sharp intolerance, judgement and scrutiny from family members, friends and colleagues wielding burden of proof as universal credence. Our heart centers are being attacked, depleted and traumatized. When they become unbalanced, we can no longer relate with our soul.
Our intuition is the interpreter of our being. It empowers communication between our body, mind, heart and spirit. When our body is healthy, our mind is clear and our heart is focused, the centers of our being resonate with our soul. We all have seven major chakras. When aligned, they are conduits for energy to flow from the universe and our soul, through our centers and into our heart, mind and body. Our intuition is an eternal and infinite presence. It empowers us to establish and maintain equanimity between the elements of our being. When we achieve this balance, we are sourced by the universe through our soul. Our intuition sends this multidimensional energy to enliven our heart, mind and body.
Most people will not intimate with their soul until they pass from this earth, let alone embody it. Everyone has a destiny with this experience. Few choose to clarify, realize and sustain this extraordinary expression of being. Society is a soulless entity, devoid of empathy, kindness, integrity, truth and understanding. It is a viral syndrome, enslaving our collective soul. We are immigrants to our essence and the universe. This stark reality is most present in who we are being, how we live and how we treat each other. Our arrogance, desire, ego and self-righteousness have sacrificed our soul for instant gratification. The reckoning for humanity has come.
The Present We Live:
How we live our experience is our choice. Society implies that there are choices, though few exist within its construct. There are only menial decisions provided by an authoritarian-imposed affront weaponizing duality with left or right, dark or light, good or evil, day or night and wrong or right. Being is our ability to break the spell of social conditioning to which we all fall victim. Social reality is the wool pulled over our eyes when we are not paying attention. This is our dilemma. Our brushes with authentic epiphany and insight are rare and fleeting, to the degree we no longer acknowledge them as opportunity. The past is dead. The future is created by how present we live. Universality is the only way we transform reality.
There is a positive energetic shift occurring in the universe sourcing us with creativity, imagination, opportunity and transformation. There is also a negative energetic movement in society influencing us toward captivity, destruction, fear, illness and death. Our current era is defined by choice. We become what we choose. Where we aim our focus of attention is where we place our energy. Aligning with the universal shift empowers us to transcend duality and be one with all. When we opt for societal indoctrination and modification, we concede our personal power as victims of social reality. The power of this choice cannot be weighed with instinct and intellect alone. Emotion and intuition empower our choice to become an expression of the universe.
“Choose wisely! While the universe will bring you life, social reality will take it from you.”
