The Tide and The Undertow:
Our society has strayed further away from the natural world. In many ways, we have attempted to distort and destroy nature for the sustenance of our modern day conveniences, comfort zones, innovations and pocketbooks. We wonder why we starve for the basic necessities of clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, clean food to eat and clean environments in which to live. It is more difficult to ensure the purity of our needs in a world that sacrifices them willingly for power, position and profit. It is insane to believe that there is a viable justification for what we are doing, how we are enabling, and why it is deemed socially sensible to be biting the hand that feeds us.
How we breathe and live is much like the crashing and receding of the waves and the ebb and flow of the tides. There is a universal blueprint in the majesty of this often-overlooked expression of nature. Yet, below the surface of the sea, something equally unseen and significant is happening. There is an undercurrent that draws upon us; much like the opposing force of a magnet. It pulls at our bodies, our minds, our hearts and even our souls. It is the force of life we cultivate with our willingness and it is the force of death we enable with our resistance. It is that which remains unnoticed that makes the strongest impression and passes the greatest influence. It is only the circumstances we feel that allows us to sense beyond the diversion of reality and express our truth.
As conscious human beings we see the undertow everywhere in everything. It is in the extreme swings of the financial markets, the shifting power of the political arenas and the misguided strategy of the established medical industry. It is in the contrived broadcasts of the media outlets, the romanticizing of spirituality, the false heroism of the sports industry and the sensationalized fantasy of the entertainment industry. It is in the marketing of thousands of unhealthy products that lead to millions of deaths a year. It is the declining undercurrent of our society. It is a global vortex that exists solely for the sake of consuming. It is the ugly face of humanity’s collective ego that devours with an appetite never to be fulfilled.
Transcending the Currents:
We live in a social structure we identify, interact with and to which we are tethered that we commonly accept as “reality.” Within this formation of existence, we are constantly influenced and conditioned by continual social undercurrents. Some of these currents are very constructive and life giving such as love, creativity, healthy relations, community building and childbirth. Even if we are not particularly conscious to the presence of energy currents in our daily lives, those of a higher frequency are undeniable. They usually result in the release of natural endorphins that elevate our perceptions, vitality, mood, motivation and experience of life.
However, most of the currents in our contemporary society are very destructive and deadly. These artificial tides shower us through news broadcasts, entertainment, sporting events, religious propaganda, advertisements, misinformation and even personal and family dramas. When we are caught in the undertow of these lower frequency currents, we are left tired, drained, depressed, hopeless and powerless. As human beings, we often struggle to establish a healthy awareness of them. These denser energy frequencies push and pull us to and fro, overwhelming our vision, senses, purpose and life. They possess authority over us when we allow their energetic exploitation. It is only when we concede our intention of consciousness we surrender our power. When we do, we separate ourselves from the eternal spring of energy that the universe provides.
We are in the midst of an energetic conflict and its impact and impression is as constant and relentless as the ominous fate looming within and around us. Whether or not we are conscious of this secret battle does not take away from its potency and the burden of its probable outcome. We are confronted by an energetic conundrum every year, day and breath of our lives. We feel it when we wake up till the time we retire to our sleep. Its presence permeates every facet of our being, most often without our awareness and understanding. Our ability to thrive amid these social currents is dependent upon our willingness to differentiate and choose which energy we will adopt and represent based upon the nature of the expression of our lives.
In The Flow:
There are numerous sources in our world that radiate energy. Whether it is the Sun, the Earth, the winds, the rivers, the tides or even people, we are provided an endless supply. Yet, the energy source that is most available to us is ourselves. We are a biological system of life that generates and expresses an immeasurable amount of vitality. Our body is constantly producing energy through breathing, digestion and hydration. Our mind continuously fires neural activity as it sends commands to our body and relates us with our intuition. Our hearts emanate life force through the circulation of the blood as well as the boundless electromagnetic energy that connects our heart with our soul. Our soul is our direct connection with the source of all life in the universe.
We are eternal energy. All that exists is within us. It is not an external entity that limits our capacity or takes our power from us. It is our personal denial, self-righteousness, judgment and acquiescence that causes our diminished existence. It is we who give our power away when we decline to become all who we are. It is only we who can recover the energy we surrender to the chaotic undercurrents of our society’s turbulent, energetic tides. It is in our nature to become multi-dimensional expressions of life in this world. After all, we already are. It is our living inheritance to claim our common destiny by fulfilling ourselves with the life force of all creation. Everything that we need to thrive in our life is already within us. We need only identify, accept and radiate our universal expression.
We are an instrument for the universe. The nature of instrument we will be is dependent upon the expression of our energetic birthright. We have the potential to conduct the energetic currents that flow into this world. We have the choice to be in flow with the universal energy and the collective stream of consciousness. We have an obligation as living beings to stand strong amidst the social currents as they ebb and flow to challenge the bearings of our destiny. We have the right to transform the fractured tides and undertows in our lives and in the world toward a convergence of energetic evolution. Our lives are opportunities to express and share energy. All it requires of us is to be the truth of our existence. All it requires of us is to be what we are, a universal instrument of energy.
