It’s Graduation Day

Life has pushed us into the pool and for some it may feel like the deep end

When one reads this rather sobering information, it’s very easy to fall into denial, despair, hopelessness, depression, etc.

But instead of succumbing to that, it’s better to view this as the opportunity to really put into practice the spiritual teaching.

While many of us read and discuss the teaching in terms of broad stroke aspects of our lives, reflecting on how and when we first found it, the improvements we’ve made in our personal lives because of it, etc., we now have the opportunity to make a quantum leap in both our own understanding and our application of it.

Much of society suffers from what’s called normalcy bias, perhaps in a sense all of us do. Our country has never been invaded and bombed by outside forces, we’ve never seen or endured what many other people around the world have…often as a result of our own country’s institutionalized violence and aggressive policies.

So, for those who understand the no-nonsense nature of the information from Billy Meier and the Plejaren, and the spiritual teaching, we can think of this as an unannounced, unexpected…graduation.

The time is past for simply having long drawn out theoretical discussions, pity parties and hand-wringing sessions. As we often pose the question to people who have recently found the Meier material, let us address it to ourselves, “Now that you/we know…what will you/we do?”

Our studies of the teaching aren’t just meant to prepare us for some vague, distant, future events and challenges. As the saying goes, “It is now – and we are here.”

I suggest that we do prioritize self-reflection and self-awareness*, as we consider this information, these warnings, from Meier. This is a perfect opportunity to do some “inner work”, i.e. contemplation, meditation, etc., on the issues that he’s raised…and the issues that they raise inside of us.

Whether we like it or not, whether we feel “ready” or not, life has pushed us into the pool. For some it may feel like the deep end.

However, there is no better time to observe and control our thoughts, feelings and actions. We need to be inwardly clear, realistic and aware. We need to…see things as they really are. In other words, here’s the perfect opportunity to practice…Neutral-positive Thinking.

We know from the spiritual teaching – and please notice it’s also again in the new warnings from Meier – that each individual must be completely self-responsible and now that includes and pertains to discovering howthey/we will support and participate in a worldwide effort to take back the reins, the control of the direction of our national and international policies, through the might of our thoughts…and the appropriate actions that will follow.

Clearly, we are called upon to resist any participation in the warmongering, aggression, violence, etc. But we can go far beyond just resistance, be it in thought or deed, if we prioritize attaining inner clarity and proceed purposefully in our lives.

Of course, the internal processes should not become exercises in procrastination, nor do we have to feel that we have completely “resolved” any and all personal reactions, feelings, etc., about this ominous information before we begin to take action.

Nor do we need to be “perfect” to interact with like-minded people, in our community and others, online and in person, in order to create the positive changes we want to make.

Our “graduation” bestows upon us great responsibilities, especially in the way we think and…express our thoughts, through words and actions. Rather than futilely waste our time and energy bemoaning the situation and succumbing to feelings of overwhelm, we need to deal with the situation in manageable bites.

Without minimizing the seriousness of what we face, we can put even these formidable challenges in perspective. Meier has written about how to make a large problem smaller and more controllable. That is a good idea for the tasks, and the times, now at hand.

So, acknowledging the inner work that needs to continue to be done, we also have to interact with each other with accountability. Think of it like being on a vessel on the stormy seas, where each hand on deck must have a clear understanding of their part, their capabilities, etc. And, as Meier has so eloquently explained, each of us is of…equal value, no person intrinsically more important than the other in a truly interdependent, cooperative effort.

This isn’t about having to take big, dramatic actions in order to be effective, or to feel worthy. Small, consistent, ever-refined acts evolving out of clear, focused, fearless thinking will prove more important in the long run, individually and globally.

As pointed out before, we need to withdraw our attention from all of the distractions that have us jumping from one video to another, from one sensationalized post or commentator to another, and back to the foundational elements of the spiritual teaching, based on complete self-responsibilities for our own thoughts, feelings and actions.

If we want a different, better future it will only come from such personal efforts in concert and harmony with other like-minded people,

Participate

There are video meetings now being held by members of TheyFly Productions. These will expand and develop for, and along with, all those who choose to participate and contribute for the purpose of creating a cohesive, effective contribution to the overall goal.

As with every graduation, a new beginning, often into the unknown is encountered. But that’s why we have studied, and will continue to study, the spiritual teaching and now more vigorously apply what we have been learning.

 

*The Consciousness Awareness Workshop can be a very useful guide for facilitating such issues, etc.

TurnThat Wheel Together

It’s the time for coming together

to do what’s never been done

there’s a new game to be played

a new world to be made

where there’s more than enough

enough for everyone

We have lived here together as strangers

never knowing we were notes in the same song

till someone needed help

and we gave of ourselves

and we put our hands and hearts

right back where they belong

As we turn that wheel together

nobody turns it alone

it takes the strength of every brother

to turn that wheel along

Now we’re a world of nine billion voices

each one with something special to say

and now the day begins

when everybody wins

and each of us can give

we can give in our own way

As we turn that wheel together

nobody turns it alone

it takes the strength of every sister

to turn that wheel along

As we turn that wheel together

nobody turns it alone

it takes the strength of everybody

to turn that wheel along

  1. When he has burnt the ground to ashes and destroyed all life, when he holds the sceptre of death and destruction in his hands and casts an evil reign over his fellow human beings, only then will he see how he has abandoned everything good and worthy in life, letting out an agonising scream which will travel to the farthest corners of the world. Like a drowning one, he will desperately try to grasp the thin air above him to pull himself out from the water, but alas, it will be too late.

    People, listen to the words of truth and love which the great proclaimer of our time has brought to you for the last time on this world. Pay heed and recognize the eternal life that flows in you as love and wisdom. Open your eyes to the great richness of the truth and set yourselves free from your own despair. Do this, and you will cry the tears of joy and gratitude and steer your lives in love and rightfulness.

    Salome,
    Niko Sulonen
