An Ordering?



I mentioned yesterday that I have been reading and studying quite a bit lately. I just finished The Intention Experiment. I'm now reading The Four Insights, a book about ancient healers in hiding since the time of the Conquest, now re-emerging to offer wisdom in order to "sustain us during the great changes we are about to face." (In case you don't believe it's possible for a group to be in hiding this long, there was a writer about an ancient civilization of runners recently discovered in Mexico on John Stewart on Tuesday.) On top of these recent books, I've read The Toltec Prophecies, everything written by Eckhart Tolle, and almost everything by Pema Chodron over the last few months. I feel drawn to do this, and I don't really know why. But I feel as though something is happening. Our world is going through a change. Almost as if there is an "ordering" or organization of energy. People's energy, earth's energy, all energy. Something like "the endless passing back and forth of energy between all subatomic particles, leaving scientists to believe that all matter in the universe is connected on the subatomic level through a constant dance of quantum energy exchange." (The Intention Experiment)

I know some of you will think this sounds crazy. But before you wipe me from your blog world, ask yourself - have you been feeling differently lately? Have you had a feeling of being anxious, but without a ready explanation? Have you been drawn to programs like The Philanthropist, a program about doing good deeds, with messages that we are One? Do you feel a need to retreat from anger, violence, negativity, preferring calm discourse? Or perhaps you have thoughts of a world where everyone is equal, and less of a desire for material things. Does something tell you that you need to be more self-sufficient? Grow, can, eat organically? Maybe not eat factory-farmed meat, or not eat meat at all. Or maybe it's just an overall feeling of wanting to be a better person, to think good thoughts, and be grateful for life's blessings.

I know these are generalizations, easily applied to a variety of reasons. You can say they are just because of the economy, or news programs, or a fad. But I don't think so. Every book I have read has something about a great wave of change coming to our world. If you believe only in the Bible - then it's Armageddon. Edgar Cayce talked about it, the ancient civilizations and healers talked about it, every book I have read lately has something about it. It was even mentioned last night on a program about alien encounters! Is it the end of the Mayan calendar - which is 2012? Is it the changes in our weather patterns? Is it a metaphor for a spiritual awakening?

Could that be what we are experiencing? Is there an ordering going on because we may need each other?

It's a puzzle, and we are the pieces. I would love your wise words, opinions and stories. I hope you don't think I'm crazy. But somehow I don't think you do - at least some of you don't, or you wouldn't be reading this right now, I would have been deleted long ago.

I don't think you're the least bit crazy. I am reading another Cayce book as I write this....and I need to get this one too. And I need to watch The Philanthropist. Thanks!

Phoebe Miriah Kirby said...

You read my blog so you have to know that I feel these things that you are describing.
I yelled at my husband last night for not understanding me. I blew up on him when he told me I needed to "meditate."
But he is right. I need to meditate and I need to read. I need to maintain my composure and hope and pray that something is going to happen that will save this species...

I feel that I am trapped in the inevitable outcome of some force. We all are really, but I feel especially cornered. My husband is in the marine corps. He will be the first to be called to duty when the world is in a crisis. If I lose him, I lose myself.
We have to go where the government tells us to go and when they tell us to go there. He has rifle in hand the second his orders are delivered to our front door.

Something very terrible is going to HAVE to happen in order for us to understand the consequences of our actions.

I'm getting all teary eyed just imagining it...
Wondeful post, Nancy.

Brian Miller said...

i definitely think something is coming...you can feel it in the very air...there is even an anticipation in people...don't know what it is, but i am sure we will have to face it together...

Jeninacide said...

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I do so love listening to you talk about this stuff! Keep it up Mom!

Nancy said...

Mental - Thanks. Edgar Cayce is really amazing isn't he?

Phoebe - I think your husband was right to give you advice that keeps you centered. Hopefully we won't need to send him anywhere. It may very well be a peaceful transformation - an enlightenment.

Brian - I know what you mean.

Jeff D'Antonio said...

Nancy, I got chills reading this.

Because I have felt this wave of change in myself too, but I couldn't put a finger on it until I read what you wrote here. I have been on a journey for the past 3 years. This journey has not been guided by me, but by something much bigger. It has taken me to places I never expected to go. I have listened to my heart and my inner voice like I never have before. I have learned a great deal about who I am and what I'm capable of. I have found the answers to many questions I've always had, and I have asked new questions to which I'm still seeking the answers. I've just felt the need to explore, and take my mind to places it has never been before. I don't know why.

Something has led me down this road, as I would never have gone there on my own. But what? And why? And why NOW?

And I've met people along the way who have led my mind in new directions. Some of them appeared right here in blog land, stayed just long enough to lead me in a new direction, and then disappeared. Where did they come from? Where did they go? Why did our paths cross at just the right time for them to redirect my journey.

Where am I going?

(sorry for the long comment...:))

The Good Cook said...

I believe that change is coming.. it has already started. Where it will lead is anyone's guess.

The past 2 years I have been on a personal journey. I have removed negative, judgemental people from my life, I try to give more, be more, explore more and take less, less, less.

I pray that the transition coming will be one of peace. I am frightened though, because historically peace does not come peacefully.

May God help us all.

Expat From Hell said...

You remain such an important bell-ringer for the rest of us, Nancy. Thanks for posting this. I, too, have had my ear on the railroad tracks of late, and can definitely affirm that something's coming. This is why your blog is so precious. Keep up the good work!

Momma Moe said...

I think you live in my brain, because I have been having those exact thoughts...simpler, better, cleaner, more wholesome living...a dignified "real" life of good thoughts, attitudes, behaviors, that will spill into all areas of my life, and hopefully, into the lives of those around me. You're onto something here.

Gemel said...

We are about to enter the Age of Light, therefore those of us who hold the Light here on Mother Earth are fine tuning our body vessels, those who are awakening to their Souls calling will begin to shift, they may not know why, but something is happening within them. As the cleansing continues people will lift there own vibrations, they will stop many things, especially the eating of any flesh, as they begin to see that their Soul will not allow the blood of another to darken their Soul. They will end their cycles of negativity and find themselves drawn to the Stillness Within, where, if they surrender to their Self, they will find The Universe within, and their Light will begin to shine once more, taking them home........

Rain said...

Nancy, I love your humour. If you're crazy, then we are both headed for the booby hatch.
I feel like our Earth has gone through quite a change already, with the beginnings of the "green" movement...I say beginnings because I think that there is SO much more to be done. But when I observe the weather, I wonder, are we too late? But then I think of sharks...spent a lot of time watching Shark Week on Discovery! They have been around for gazillions of years, why would things come to an end all of a sudden because the Mayans may or may not have run out of room for their calendar? I know that may sound flippant to some, but I just don't buy it. I certainly don't believe in Judgment Day. I think every day is our own personal judgment day and if we choose to look the other way, we are making human and animal life on this Earth a living hell,not just for ourselves but for others around us and our precious environment.

Hope that comment made some sense! I'm feeling very wishy washy these days!
:)

Nancy said...

Jeff - Thank YOU for the large comment. I love to hear what you have to say about this. I, too, feel guided by something much bigger. And I know exactly what you meant by "where am I going?"

Good - You have already started too, it seems, losing the judgment, etc. It's a large phenomenon.

Expat - Thanks. I feel better knowing you and others have their "ear to the tracks."

Momma - Yep, we're on the same train. (To use ex-pat's metaphore :-)

Gemel - You are always soothing. Thank you for that!

Rain - I know exactly what you mean. Are we too late? I don't know. I hope not. Maybe that's why you feel the need to go into science?

Rain said...

How interesting Nancy, oh gosh, my "noodle" can't hack this deep thinking today, lol.....the atmosphere, climatology, oceanography, geology and astronomy. One of these fields is where I'm hopefully headed....

GYPSYWOMAN said...

yes, but of course! and i think part of that is why each of us has been brought together in this special blogosphere of kindred spirits - individually, i've been wandering my way into more of this interior landscape for a long time - and reading more and learning more is part of that journey as is being here with like-minded other seekers - "the times, they are a-changing" - it's palpable - even the scientific world is spewing forth empirical proof of the geophysical changes coming to our planet soon - how we each find our way into these coming changes is to be found only in our own hearts -

all of which brings to mind what i had planned to post on my travel journal blog today - but which seems to fit so well here - and that is the announcement of the compassionate release by scotland of the lockerbie bomber - i do understand the angst of the victims' families - i do - in how they perceive this event - but as i was listening to story after story of the remaining hatred and vehemence and more hatred the more i became saddened - if we cannot forgive others - if we cannot find love in our hearts - if we cannot find even the most minute bit of human compassion for others - how, then might we find it [forgiveness, love and compassion] for ourselves -

and the light - the coming light - we each carry within us part of that light - it is up to us as to how and if we choose to bring forth that precious light - and light it shine - merging into the next...

peace -jenean

Interesting post...I also feel like something is going on out there. In a way, I really hope it IS, because the thought of more of the same is quite depressing to me. I hope people--especially Americans--have an awakening and we take our world in a better direction. I prefer to think of my kids (and their kids, and their kids...) living in that kind of a new world!

I, too, have been on my own journey the last few years and it is amazing to me how things will "fall" into my lap at the right time in order to take me to the next step....and how things are so very interrelated and interconnected. I just finished Liz Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" and her words were just another tuning fork that I felt deep inside myself.

Great thoughts, keep it up!

Kathy G said...

What an awesome and wide-ranging body of reading you've done!

I don't feel anxious, but I attribute it ti my hard-won ability to live in the present, one day at a time.

Leah J. Utas said...

Yes. The change is happening around us and within so many of us.
I like your description of reordering. I've been saying someone's pressed a spiritual reset button.
Are you familiar with http://www.emergingearthangels.com/
? If not, check her out. It's in keeping with what you're saying.

luksky said...

I wish I felt it...I felt it before, now the feeling is gone. I feel disconnected and out of sorts. My ego has overtaken me once again....

Post nubila Phoebus.
(Rain will be followed by sunshine.)

Thank you for putting a voice of, what many other, seem to feel, think, live.

Reya Mellicker said...

Doesn't sound crazy to me.

As for my impressions, I'm happy to be engaged in whatever this is, but I wouldn't dream of trying to name it or describe it just yet. It's still unfolding.

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

How interesting that you posted this at 9:11.

Linda Pendleton said...

I've said for months, actually more than a year, that we are going through a change, but I see it as removing the negativity both in a personal sense and in a sense of community (meaning even global). I think most people are so tired of the fear that is generated from outside us...and in the recent nearly decade we were bombarded with it. And many are now letting go and not accepting to be in that negative place, and coming into our authentic selves. And that authentic self is one of a spiritual being. I think we are "remembering" that now.

"Jo" said...

I like to believe we are spiritually awakening. It's everywhere, really, once you've noticed it. It's almost as if physical and mental health has become a hype. If so, it's an irreversable one because it's impossible to resign to ignorance once awakened. I think we're starting to understand we need each other, starting to understand our collective conscience, and that we cannot be healthy if our environment isn't and our fellow beings aren't healthy. I think the Zeitgeist movie (and movement) is a very good example of this because it clearly explains why we should become aware of what and who we are, instead of allowing our world to evolve around financial profit at the expense of the well being of pretty much everything around us. Another good example are the books of Neale Donald Walsh, whose books sets guidelines for becoming spiritually and emotionally awarene.

I don't know who set this change in motion, or what set this change in motion. All I know is that it is natural to keep evolving. It was to be expected we would come to understand the essence of our being, even if it took ages of evolving and overcoming greed, ignorance, distrust and selfishness. Now that the mainstream media is starting to understand as well it's only a matter of time before we actually achieve our utopia. Maybe not in this lifetime, or our children's lifetime, or our children's children's lifetime, but with every generation the possibiltiy and plausibility grows.

I could go on for hours about this but what I'm trying to say is: I'm definitely not going to delete you, I think you're right.

Spiritual Journey said...

I can so relate and understand this. I'm currently listening to the audiobook The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer and I'm in the part now where he was discussing quantum physics in which the observer really has an effect to the thing observed. So Dyer said that whenever we change the way we look at things, the things actually change (either for the better or for the worse). So basically, it makes sense that each person's energy when combined with the universal consciousness leads to major change.

Joanna said...

Interesting that so many sources refer to this as a time of change. My friend Jane has been channeling messages from spirit guides for more than 20 years. They talk about this time as the great overturn of souls. If you want to see what they say about it check out our blog at http://www.dialoguewithspiritguides.blogspot.com

DJan said...

It is obvious that you are a nexus point and draw people together from disparate viewpoints. I have found some of my most favorite bloggers from comments on your posts. You are a kindred spirit for many of us who are seeking past this present moment.

yesterday when I got home from my hike I found that my internet was gone, so this morning I left an hour early and went off to the local food co-op that also has a cafe with an internet connection. I met two new friends and had a very interesting conversation with one. What brings us together is not linear.

I am addicted to the blogosphere, but I need electricity, a computer, and a service provider. If I didn't have that, would I lose you? Or would you show up in my life in some other way??

susan said...

There was a sci-fi book I read a long long time ago written by L. Ron Hubbard called 'The White Rose'. In it he postulated a generation of children with back humps born to normal parents. One day the children 's wings sprouted and they flew away. The book was recalled and all copies destroyed because it didn't fit the new Scientology premises being promulgated at the time. I have to go and scratch the two little lumps on my back. See you later ^_^

Pam said...

Great post, so thoughtful. I feel it too.

Hilary said...

You're not crazy.. you're insightful. I keep coming back to your blog because you make such crystal clear sense.

Natalie said...

With you all the way, Nancy.xx♥

DUTA said...

Something is going to happen and it will start with the USA. America is in big economic, political, and social danger and the three are interrelated. The old tricks of keeping such a diversified society in one piece won't work anymore. As a non american I can this danger very clearly.

Heathermrtnz said...

Wow, I find your post most intriguing. I have been going through a very similar thought process and change within myself over the course of the last year and a half. I don't find you crazy at all! Good to know I can relate with someone. :)
