I am sixty two years old. I cannot remember a time when we were not in a war, preparing for a war healing from a war or threatening to go to war. My grandfather fought in World War I. My father fought in World War II. My husband was drafted in the Viet Nam War. I lost family and friends in all three wars.
In her book "Great Cosmic Mother", Monica SJOO and Mabrabar Mor talk of the patriarchal War god that has become the Global God of Global War. The state of holy war has become global, inevitable and continues. Author, Paul Virilio, explains in his book, "War & Cinema" the distinction between the historic idea of a "just war" and the fanatic pursuit of "Holy War". In the age of nuclear technology, there is no room or time left in his opinion nor mine for war. "All war today is fanatic, and moreover technologiclly devastating. All war has the potential for rapid acceleration into total war. To maintain itself in power the patriarchal system must maintain the world in a continuous constant state of war of one kind or another."
We have crossed over a line with nuclear weapons. The possessors of nuclear weaponry are dangerous men strutting around playing a game of chicken, aiming at each other, racing to hit each other head on,and seeing who is afraid,or who will pull out before striking. I have it,I might use it. The United States did use it. Follow the money. I don't think you will be surprised in the amount of money that has been made by private corporations in the making of weapons,ships, planes,nuclear technology, and a $1775.00 hammer.
The wounds go deep in our history alone. Almost no one is innocent-founding fathers, governments that followed, churches, banks and the unholy spirit of corporate captialism and expansion that still exists. Who ARE those few at the top in control?
And now the good news-No More War! A time of healing has begun. War will not be accepted any longer by our advanced civilizations. No more innocent children dying at the hands of warlords. One by one the dictators, cruel regimes, and corrupt governments that oppress the people will be gone. We have become spiritually and technologically connected by the internet to the whole world, therefore the evil ones cannot hide.
How do we know when we are shifting our consciousness? It is because our thoughts and concerns are for the welfare of the world not just one person, or nation. This process is new for humans on our planet, as we have not been aware. The new process moves us into a higher level of reasoning. It is a broader view of reality. We are no longer caught up in the war machines deception or being manipulated by the wealthy few. This is the shift in consciousness. A new species which says ENOUGH-No More War!
Along with our new consciousness comes a new energy, a fire energy driving new rules. One new rule is that the natural resources belong to the people of this planet, given by the Creator for our support and enjoyment, not for exploitation by corporations.
What will we have when we convert "Eighty" billion dollars of war machine to "Eighty" billion dollars of peace machine. We will be witness to loving communities where children are safe, provided with good water, healthy food and quality education.
I believe we will see the new world in my lifetime. I have faith in the evolution of our species. Millions are becoming aware and aligning with groups and small circles all over the world for the shift in consciousness. The Universe supports us-as we are not alone!
