Hope for Humanity


Humanity finds itself at a crossroads between liberation and destruction. We are in a borderline state where we can slip on either side. On the one hand the cry of our collective soul is unbearable, and on the other hand our Mother Earth is screaming at us with its disasters and climate change.

Our humanity is lost in the scarcity of the minds of its people. There is an urge to act collectively because time is no longer on our side.

We see pain, suffering and sickness from our mental construct.

Children come to the world seeking hope for us, but they get colored by the stories, pictures and memories of our mental enslavement and then they become like us — also lost with all that dirt that had been transferred to them consciously or unconsciously.

We cry from our agony because we are aware, we are aware, we are aware. We feel, we sense and we see what is going on.

We suffer from our separated selves, we suffer from our ego selves and we suffer from that illusion that we have created that is a made-up movie from an illusionary world. But the truth of the matter is that sometimes we live in that made-up movie as if it is real. And then we become strangers in our own lives.

A new way
We cannot continue, we cannot pretend, we cannot close our eyes and think that everything is all right, and we cannot continue with false stories and we cannot endure to live in pain, hurt and suffering.

My heart is crying and yours is also crying. You and I know that we cannot keep going with our ego-centered lives.

Only you and I have the answer.

The answer is to drop the mask, the mask of false identity, the mask of the separated self and come together to learn a new language, learn a new way of being, learn a new way of living and learn a new way of doing.

Now it is time to relearn everything from the ground up, which is a new way of being and living and doing. This new language is a delicate language, a language based on words that are chosen carefully with care and compassion. Words that have to be spoken from the temple of our hearts. Words that have to be infused with compassion from the depth of our beings in order for the healing to happen — a healing that is from the unconditional love that is cultivated from within.

This is the new language that I’m talking to you about! Everything comes from the words that we put together in this new way of communication.

Then we move to another layer where you and I are aware of all the veils that have covered our hearts. Those veils are the veils of separation, limiting beliefs and pain and suffering that took us away from the Truth of who we are.

The second layer of work is to remove those veils one by one.

This takes willingness, effort and “the wanting” to do the inner work to find the purity of who we are. Indeed, this is not an easy layer. It’s painful because we don’t want to face this illusion that we have created and the memories and pain associated with those stories.

But we don’t have the choice anymore to continue and pretend. We don’t have the choice anymore!

Profound changes
From this willingness to do the work we will experience profound changes in our beings, a new relationship with our true self, changes that are beyond our imagination, to finally come to the inner peace that is within. We get a taste, such a sweet taste of this peace, and we know it’s always there because we have touched it and we will continue to touch it. And then our longing is to come back to it over and over and over.

We start to see the changes within. The mind silences and the stories get dissolved. The hurt and pain and suffering are dissipated by the quantum leaps that we are experiencing. There is no such past and future in this transcendental experience of finding the Truth of who we are.

Our true self starts to shine, our consciousness expands and, of course, we will continue, because we start to see and feel everything from a different set of lenses. Our body gets infused by the sweetness and fragrance of the unconditional love. And we extend our inner arms to love others unconditionally and see them with compassion, care and gentleness — and touch them with our grace.

Another dimension
Life starts to take another dimension. We become aware of the present moment. We live in the music of our breath. We start to live an outer life with such elegance and simplicity of being. This is the new way of living that I was talking to you about.

Our actions in the world become flowers of this inner garden that we have planted. Our actions become instilled by this inner fragrance. A new way of living with others starts to shine. We see others with this inner eye of our hearts. We offer a hand, a smile.

Our happiness becomes the happiness of others. Our joy becomes the joy of others. And our sense of life is to offer all that we have to help, to support, to listen and to heal and to finally come together and share this inner house that we all have access to.

In this inner house, we eat the same food, but this food is not like any other food. It is the food that we are all seeking to be nourished from.

We join together into this inner place where we get inspired to continue our journey together and thus it is the ripple effect that we have created, which is a hope for our humanity.

Hold my hand and let us stand at each other’s side.
