When most people feel under stress they often say, “It feels like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.” It is a very common phrase used amongst English speaking nations. But behind this one phrase is a quintessential truth, because when one is on a path to self-transformation they realize that the weight of the world is truly on their shoulders, so it is up to them to change it. Yet this whole phenomenon of being the change has become confusing to many and in some cases a smell of pollution surrounds this so called change. At this moment and throughout time we have seen large groups of people around the world in rebellion against external forces. The problem with a lot of these rebellions is that most of them are based on an “us against them” mentality, which implies a lack of wisdom as to what the nature of reality is. On the other side of the spectrum we have a large internal awakening occurring around the planet, where major portions of this energetic change have been hijacked and are shrouded in ego to line the pockets of a few with plenty of money. Thus both external and internal are in chaos with one another. We need to find common ground because the weight of this world is becoming unbearable. Somehow we need to find the balance to this weight.
In our present day the weight of the world is not a physical disability, but instead it is psychic in nature. Almost everything we visualize in our external world stems from our collective psychic illness. Buddha once said, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.” This piece of wisdom rings true when one understands the total functions of the mind. One of the innermost fundamental principles of consciousness is that everything in our world either on a personal or collective level is a deep mental projection. So what we create in our reality is either from conscious concentration or it is from a darker emotion suppressed within the human psyche. This is very important to understand especially at this moment in time, because even though some people out there are consciously manifesting reality, most of these people still haven’t addressed the darker content in their own lives, and hence we all contribute to a collective disease. All of this comes back to the psychic dance between the ego and the self. This dance can truly seduce the most ardent believer. A lot of people on Earth at the moment believe they are in true rebellion against the banking cartel, corporate structure and corrupt governments, with the belief they are creating a better world. The seduction here is that this rebellion is only a projection of our ego. The ego does this to keep anyone from having true eternal rebellion. Since the ego is the totality of the mind at present, it will do whatever it has to do from letting you go inwardly and finally dealing with those darker emotions suppressed within the shadow-self. So because of this, what is happening now is the ego is disguising itself under a false projection of a better world to further its own existence and to keep us from the true journey.
