Folks are waking up, there is beautiful energy lighting the earth! I've pondered so much the unconsciousness of the planet and have seen it inside myself and wondered why it seemed so hard to stay awake. The gnostic Valentinus (100-153 AD) spoke of a forgetfulness that descends on mankind. In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus was said to say that mankind was intoxicated. The gnostic Sylvia Brown says that earth is the insane asylum of the Universe.
We have understood we are born sinners and that we have to work very hard to be accepted into the pearly gates of heaven. But we are God's creation, He would not have created us wrong, lacking. We were seeds of perfection on the earth, beautiful blossoms, shining with God's light and then we learned we were sinners. What if we come into life perfect, without sin and having all the information we need tucked inside us? Then the forgetfulness, the intoxication come as we learn the ways of this world. Each generation teaches the next generation and one can only teach what one knows. I believe it was Jesus who said, the blind will lead the blind into a pit.
In the Bible it mentions that we need to seek, but that seems to be only as far as your nearest church and then consider yourself done, you have found. The Gospel of Thomas quotes Jesus as saying "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."
We have understood that we are to accept on the basis of faith and trust in the dogma that is handed down to us. Dogma is an unquestioned belief, how can we seek without questioning? How can we shed this cloak of forgetfulness, the fog of intoxication without shining the light on things that may make us and others uncomfortable? We can only see that which is illuminated, we can not see in the dark and ignorance of the Truth is a very dark and sleep filled place.
Yes, we are seeing things that are disturbing to us, we are looking into to ideas that years ago would have seemed so foreign, or even sinful, to us and we have felt the guilt for not doing as we have been told. We have felt the change on the earth and have grown restless with the limiting boundaries we perceive around us and we are finding that most of the fences we see are indeed an illusion. Tell yourself you remember God, say it out loud and then trust that you will remember. Once we shed the weight of forgetfulness, we will know and be known.
It is a glorious time to be alive, seeking has never been easier and never before have so many been seeking. The earth is filling with light and beauty, know it, feel it, trust it, it is an incredible time to be living.
