Our crisis is a birth. We cross thresholds in life through pressurization. Hello, polarization on the planet. This world upheaval is pushing us to shift… into love, of course.

People are being who they’ve always been—a crisis brings out what’s already there. No need to be surprised by anyone’s choices, ranting, loving, giving, pushing, inviting.

AFTER the pressure hatches us… THEN we can choose to make new choices. This is GROWTH. This is how we evolve. Evolution rather than involution (backwards).

How to tell a wise decision, policy, idea from unwise?…

Wisdom unites. The opposite of Wisdom is segregation and division. Doesn’t matter how much the intellect or ego tries to justify the reason for division, separativeness has been going on for eons—it has always led to demise and extended pain for everyone involved.

If we’re rejecting various parts of ourselves then we stay small, ignorant to our own Divine Spark. If we’re rejecting others for any reason, we create energy blockages in our own system and stay ignorant of the healing capacity and contribution of everyone around us.

What is “understanding? To stand “under” Wisdom, illumination. Unity with higher virtues. Love.

What happens when you turn your back on your Higher Self? Fractures… “cleavages”, which get filled with dense energy such as separativeness, more shadow and ego. You could say that the cracks get filled with fear. And the fears pull us apart internally and externally.

Can you love yourself when you hate yourself? Can you love all parts of yourself through upheaval and goodness? Boom. That’s it. THAT’S how love transmutes and transforms everything it is given to. It moves mountains of previous rejection.

As we go within to embrace our own shortcomings—and thereby find the beauty in the dark—we simultaneously expand to include EVERYONE in our hearts. No division, no segregation, no one left behind for any reason whatsoever. We find the solutions. Because Wisdom is cohesive. Wisdom will always be looking for common ground and ways to unify and move everyone forward for the good of all.
