We are at a beautiful moment on this planet where a new world is being birthed based on integrity, dignity, harmony, peace and love. The most obvious signs that this is well underway is that everything is changing and nothing seems to make sense. In fact, in many ways it appears to be the total opposite of an emerging new world. We are witnessing lies, deceit, greed, extreme wealth and poverty, sickness, destruction, dis-ease, dis-honor, addictions, abuse, and environmental chaos, along with countless other named and unnamed calamities and certainly little evidence of peace or love. Yet appearances can be deceiving in themselves and what we see and perceive is only a tiny fragment of the bigger picture.

Over the past several years, one of the regularly recurring themes we encounter with The Love Foundation is that so many people we connect with are hopeful of a better world and at the same time they are sincerely troubled by the one they appear to be presently experiencing. They know in their hearts that life is not meant to be a struggle filled with so much fear and doubt, yet they find it difficult at times to reconcile the seeming chaos and atrocities that are bombarding them from every seeming angle internally and externally. What if we stepped back and set aside our endless judgment for a moment and looked at the bigger picture? What if we stepped into the realm of our heart and began to listen to its wisdom?

When we stop and truly and genuinely look around, what do we see and what are we really experiencing? What is our mental and emotional filter of life and how is this affecting our current perspective? Do we perceive our reality as an observer or are we still allowing ourselves to be caught up in the drama like a character actor in a play? If it is the latter, do we know how to shift our perspective to see a larger view and a greater whole? Is there a way that we can connect with the real peace and love that already exists within? Is unconditional love a key that unlocks this potential?

Our mind has been the thinker for millennia and now it is time to move our energy into the heart and begin to think from this vantage point. By expressing from the heart, we can do something different in our own lives to shift our experience and in turn, the reality around us. Coming from unconditional love, we move out of the duality and polarity of right and wrong, good and bad, and begin to share that which we already are... powerful, wise, loving and lovable beings of immense talent, creativity, compassion and strength. Not to mention, individuals filled with integrity, dignity, harmony, peace, and love.

Shifting from one reality to another always includes a phase where the old gives way to the new and this often takes on the momentary appearance of chaos, strife, the need to let go of the known and a courageous willingness to allow the new to manifest. Underlying this or any transition is the loving intelligence that guides us between worlds and emanates from our own heart. No matter what the appearance, the heart knows the bigger picture and from this grander perspective we can make a profound difference.

Make a choice today to suspend judgment and relax into what simply is. Let go of what you mentally think is going on and center your awareness in the heart. Be present in the now and experience the only moment that is real and tangible. Breathe. Allow. Be at peace and you will know peace. Share your unconditional love and the world will know love.

You are the one birthing this new world and I am honored to be in your presence.
