The Illusion

ara the illusion

How many times have you heard that everything is an illusion?  I have heard it a million times or more.  It called to me to understand and experience it.

Separation is the illusion.  We are not separate from anything simply because energy, the base chemistry in all things, IS who we are.  It is the same energy that flows through you, through me, through rocks, trees, birds, dust, trees, food, pens, and everything else you can see, touch, feel, taste and smell.

When we begin to experience the oneness of all things we begin to live from our authenticity and not from our own point of personal fear and desperation. Not only is God in all things….all things are in God.  Therefore, we are all of ‘that’ as well.  No separation, just joyful thriving and passion in knowing we are One.

You can experience that glorious feeling of ‘oneness’ by simply being aware and present in each moment.  When you do, you will find that judgments melt away, urgency diminishes, stress levels dissipate and the Illusion disappears. In its place clarity abounds, love surges, appreciation flows and your well-being is visceral.  Dare to live beyond the illusion.  Be the One. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

December 21, 2012

So here it is, December 21, 2012 and the day has dawned as I fully expected it to. As I sipped my morning coffee waiting to greet the light of a new day, I smiled and wondered to myself what all the fearful people were planning to fear next now that the End of the World marketing has been milked completely dry. So much focus has been dedicated to the possibility of a catastrophic end to life as we know it. One fact that was overlooked by many was that the Mayan calendar never predicted catastrophe. That has always been a Western culture construct. The Mayans actually predicted an ‘apocalypse’ which is vastly more far-reaching and miraculous if we choose to see it as such. Why? Because ‘apocalypse,’ in translation is a ‘revealing.’ A revealing of what, you might ask. It is a revealing of a truth that has been behind the veil of our conscious awareness. A truth about the illusion we have been living within for eons.

We are transitioning through the end of one age and the beginning of another. It is a focal point. A place to put our focus where it will be of the most benefit, not just to Self but to each other. I am quick to augment this with the fact that each moment augers the same opportunities for change. One does not need such a monumental platform in order to enact change at all but as long as the platform is here we might as well use it to our collective advantage.

Our focus is our authentic power by which all things are made manifest. It is immeasurable. When we collectively focus on specific targets, miracles occur. It is in this way that you become a catalyst–a change agent–and you begin to understand that you are truly a miracle in motion. Think about it. If your focus has been based from your personal point of fear, and your focus manifests, what have you been contributing, manifesting and allowing? When you experience the power that you are, you realize that fear is simply the absence of Love–the Love of Self–the Love for each other–and the Love of our planet. In essence, you fear Love–which is who you are. When you deliberately focus your power you realize there is absolutely nothing to fear because the Self is fully equipped with the power that creates worlds. Heady stuff!

So if you were to give your attention to something, which is your focus, which in turn is your power, what would you give it to? What do you want to see changed? Some say they would want an end to war, a stable economy, love for one another and to live in peace. To that I say, all is possible—IF they are willing to give it the attention it deserves in their own lives. The ‘world’ is a collective of all vibrational energy from every individual who breathes. It is not something external that we view each night on the news. It is here. It is now. It is in you. It is you–and has been all along. If you believe for a moment that you are not the kind of person who would hurt another, think again. Every time you judge, every time you loathe, every time you punish those vibrations amass with every other individual’s contribution and are played out in full expression on a world stage. When we see the darkness of it, when we witness the pain of it, we still do not recognize that we have contributed to it by what we carry within.

The ‘revealing’ that will occur and is occurring is assisting the shadow side of Self to bubble up to the surface to be acknowledged and healed. So it is with our world–or stage. When your old paradigms and conditioning have been attended to, the world, which is our mirror will reflect it back to us. The paradigms existing in our world because of our vibrational contributions will implode and crumble in order for new paradigms to be seeded, nurtured and birthed. This time of paradigm collapse on an individual level and, in turn, the world, might buffet us to and fro for a time. Hold your focus steady on what you prefer the outcome to be and give little attention to what is seemingly happening. There is absolutely nothing that is impossible–even though we have been conditioned to believe we are powerless. The nature of the illusion now has a crack in its veneer and the light of Truth will shine blindingly in many areas. Chaos may reign for a time but you–together with your deliberate focus–will help pave the way for not only for you in your own life but for all of us and all who come after us. Change is here, as it has been in every moment. Now it is just taking center stage. Be mindful of your focus–or what you give your attention to in your daily lives. You are needed–not your fears or resentments, bitterness or judgments. When we begin to understand the nature of who we truly are we will see clearly there is no Self at all–just one beautiful and powerful stream of pure positive energy that we ride, sharing and expressing our perceived individuality. We have the power because we are that power. The question is, can you get over yourself enough to be that power.
