Please pass on.
This has to be one of the most challenging articles I have had to write because it flies in the face of an old social paradigm in which we have all been immersed. That
paradigm has to do with how we understand and use compassion. For the sake of clarity, I make a differentiation between compassion as we have been taught by society (Let’s call it 3D
compassion) and the higher dimensional version of compassion (Let’s call it 5D compassion).
Webster’s dictionary defines compassion as: Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it; pity. I believe that this is a very good explanation of the kind
of compassion that we have been taught. As you can see, compassion is an emotion: a feeling in motion. It is an active feeling. When a feeling is active, it can be used as a tool.
As a tool, it can be used in a positive or negative manner.
Now notice that Webster’s uses the term pity when defining compassion. Webster’s defines pity as: a feeling of sorrow that inclines one to help or to show mercy. Mercy is often
used as motive for rescuing another from pain. And we have been taught that mercy is good. Yet, from a higher perspective, pity and mercy are seen as terms that define someone who is
a victim, not a creator god/goddess.
I have come to understand that pity is an active form of judgment with the suffering of another being judged as bad. No wonder we dislike being pitied. hmmm… We usually
don’t wish to relieve another of feeling something wonderful, do we? But we do tend to want to relieve another of a feeling that makes us feel bad too, i.e., pain. Sorrow and
suffering are painful and therefore when we take pity on another’s experience we are saying that what they are experiencing is not good, wouldn’t you say? So with this in mind,
would it make sense that 3D compassion, as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, is a tool of judgment? Please keep in mind that this form of compassion being taught to us is all part of the
game and we designed it to be disempowering so that we, as souls, could move into a disempowered state, figure out that we are disempowered and then take the steps to regain our power. In other
words, it is part of the game of soul evolution, therefore, it is neither right or wrong.
Higher dimensional or 5D compassion is defined as: deep awareness of the suffering of another without the need to relieve it, feeling total appreciation for its value; a state of non-judgment.
As you can see, defining 5D compassion is a bit difficult because we have to stretch our minds to embrace another point of view that is quite foreign to us. The thought that someone’s
suffering can have a value is not normal thinking on our world. But, it is the kind of thinking we have been taught that God does. “God is compassionate, God is unconditionally
loving.” We hear those words and yet do not comprehend how to reach those states of consciousness. How do we get to the level of unconditional love and compassion? What are the
steps? In a nutshell, we must shift our perspective of compassion and begin using a version that is beyond what we have been taught. We must move into the realm of non-judgment, leaving
To become 5D compassionate we must suspend all judgment of the actions of another. We must be aware of those actions, how painful they are and at the same time realize that they have a value and
that value pertains to the role they play in facilitating our spiritual growth as souls. It has been said by many teachers that we are souls having a physical experience. We are
souls who have come to earth to partake of the greatest opportunity for soul growth. Why is it a great opportunity? Earth is in a free will zone meaning that there are no limits on
creative expression of Light and Dark. It has also been said that we are creator gods and goddesses and therefore we create our own realities. So if we are souls that are also creator
gods/goddesses and we are incarnate on earth to create in order to learn and grow from what we create, then Earth must be a creator gods’/goddesses’ ultimate playground.
Right? What do ya think?
Now, it’s true that our Dark creations are the ones that cause us pain. I don’t think anyone will dispute that. But, as we who have evolved a bit know, we learn the most from
our painful experiences. In fact, it is through our Dark manifestations that we grow: not from our Light manifestations. Our Light manifestations are the rewards we create for ourselves
for creating, experiencing and learning from our Dark manifestations. Okay, so if all that is true then we are creators of all that we experience - that means all the manifestations Light and Dark in our world – and they all have value because they are how we learn. Let’s take the WTC/Pentagon Attacks as an example.
From a 3D perspective (the way society thinks) the WTC/Pentagon Attacks are horrifically painful events. From a 3D perspective there is no way that there can be anything good about them, thus
they have no value. But, from a higher perspective, they have great value because they a) took us to the next level in this game of soul evolution called Polarity Integration (the integration of
the Light and the Dark), b) it showed us that we, as Lightworkers have moved the mass consciousness of earth to a higher level thus creating a counter move by the Dark, and c) the attacks provided
the wake-up call for Lightworkers everywhere to step into their greater mission for earth (creating a grid of 5D compassion around the earth to pull it up into a 5th dimensional vibration.) So in this case, as always, the horrific pain had a great value.
On a personal level, when I saw those buildings come down, realizing that their demise was not caused by impact of the planes, I knew that that one event heralded a new phase of earth’s
ascension. At the same time, I realized that such an event would not have occurred unless those who play the Dark roles felt that the Light was getting ahead of them. In planetary
ascensions, there is always balance and counterbalance. When the Light forces moved the earth to a higher vibration, the Dark forces moved to counterbalance that move. This is our
creation mirroring to us the power of our actions. The Dark would not have made this move unless we had made a move that put us ahead of them. Does that make sense? So this is, on a
spiritual and creator god/goddess level a good thing because it enables us to see that we are making progress in shifting our planet through the power of collective consciousness.
The attacks also alerted me to the fact that we are in a whole new ball game, having moved into the level where the stakes are much greater. Just as we have moved the collective consciousness
(the collective mind of the people) into a higher state and thus, out of the fish bowl so to speak, so the Dark forces now move to get us back into that fish bowl. As I have said before, this
is no longer a game fought just to imprison our bodies; it is now a game to imprison our minds. Why? Because we finally moved our collective mind out of the fish bowl! Before now, that
had not occurred because there weren’t enough people spiritually awakened to make that shift but now there is.
So, getting back to compassion. If we use the 3D form of compassion in responding to this latest creator god experience, we will find ourselves back in the fishbowl. Why? We are choosing to view
this experience as victims by wanting to stop the pain and by pitying those who have suffered. When we act in this manner we separate ourselves from our highest potential i.e., our creator
god/goddess selves. We see this creation as that of someone else—we see those who played the Dark role as separate from us. Creator gods and goddesses know that they are One, they
are part of a greater whole. When we use 3D compassion we say by our actions that we are not powerful and therefore unable to create a different experience, unable to learn from it and unable
heal and balance this latest painful creation.
When we use 3D compassion we feel pity. When we pity someone we state by our action that what they are experiencing is bad and therefore negative. As souls and creator gods/goddesses,
there is no right or wrong, just expressions of polarity and all expressions have value. So, creator gods/goddesses do not use pity…instead they remain non-judgmental, allowing all
expressions of creation to just be. Now, doesn’t that sound like the way that God is non-judgmental, allowing and unconditionally loving? If so, then we now know how to be like
Moving on, in the example of the WTC/Pentagon attacks, we see that using 3D compassion will only assure that we stay in the fish bowl. If, instead we choose to use 5D compassion we will not only
keep our collective minds out of the fish bowl but we can move it even higher and further beyond the rim. How do we do this? We do it by accomplishing 3 creator god/goddess steps.
- Seeing and learning the extent of the actions of the Dark in this life experience.
- Feeling and transmuting those energies into compassion.
- Funneling that compassion into a new reality or grid of consciousness that we expand to envelope our world, thus moving us even further out of the fish bowl. I’ll explain.
1: Learn the extent of the actions of the Dark: Don’t be an ostrich
This step means that we as creator gods/goddesses explore the depths of our creation. We do not hide or run from what we have created. No matter how dark,
ugly, disgusting and painful that creation is, we realize that not only are we responsible for it because it is part of All That Is, we find value in it as a learning opportunity.
I have found that many Lightworkers are either not aware that they need to do this or are unwilling to do it. They think that by not looking at the Dark, not
researching and investigating the official story being given by the media, that they are doing the right thing. In other words, they are not adding fuel to the fire by responding in anger or
feeling the need for revenge. On one hand they are correct, but what they are missing is that they are not doing anything to counterbalance the event. In other words, they are not creating and
fueling a counter reality to the WTC/Pentagon attacks.
I have received numerous emails from well-intentioned Lightworkers, informing me that they are staying centered in the love and therefore, are not acknowledging the
Dark. In this instance that means the actions of the terrorists, the Global Elite and/or on a cosmic level, the reptilians. In many but not all cases, I get that they are avoiding seeing
the Dark, thus they behave much like an ostrich. They are sticking their heads in a hole, thinking that if they don’t acknowledge the bad and the ugly, it will go away. Well,
unfortunately we all know that that doesn’t work. If it did, I would be the first in line to do it. So, my friends, the first step is to know the extent of the actions of the Dark
side, however they manifest. It’s not fun and, in fact, it’s very painful. Some of what I have researched turns my stomach and gives me nightmares but I would rather have
these things happen than to be naïve. Knowledge is power. When we know what we are up against, we can do something about it. We are empowered. We have choice.
2: Transmuting the energies
Once we know the extent of the Dark’s actions, we can then move to the next step: transmutation. This is where higher dimensional/creator god tools come into
play. We cannot transmute the pain, anger, revulsion and disgust into compassion unless we have a tool that enables us to see their value. At this time in our history, we must activate
those tools and we will find them stored in our DNA. We did not choose to be here on earth at this time without the tools that would enable us to successfully complete the mission. I have
dubbed the most powerful of those tools the Formula of Compassion. It contains the higher dimensional version of compassion.
As creator gods/goddesses we take this tool and transmute the energies of our Dark creation. We feel and express the anger, rage, hatred, revulsion, etc., move
them up through our lower charkas, through our heart and into our high heart where they are transmuted. Once there, we hold them in our high heart while we look for their value, in this case of
the WTC/Pentagon attacks, the value stated above. Then, once we find the value of each, we move into gratitude for the teachings they provided. At the same time we release them with
appreciation along with those who played the roles to trigger those feelings in us. At that point, we feel compassion and we are compassionate. We are also now doing what we really came
to earth to do!
3: Creating the grid
Using 5D compassion means that as creator gods/goddesses we understand that we must now create an alternate reality to the previous one. We must create a reality
that not only counterbalances the Dark one but also takes us to the next level in our learning. So, we invest time in transmuting all the dark energies from our current creation, wresting every
drop of darkness to use as fuel that we transmute to energize our new reality, and our next step. In regards to the WTC/Pentagon Attacks, we are at that point now.
In closing, as creator gods/goddesses, we have a choice to make in using the tool of compassion. We can either use 3D version of compassion and remain in the fish bowl,
neutralizing our power to create something better, or 5D version and move our world to an even higher state of consciousness. Which version will you choose?
