"All historical experience demonstrates the following: Our earth cannot be changed unless in the not too distant future an alteration in the consciousness of individuals is achieved." ~Hans Kung
Ascension of the Consciousness of Mankind
By Peter Shepherd
We are on the crest of great times, perhaps the greatest period in our history is nearly upon us. Ascension, at this time in human history, means moving from a very material, survival-oriented struggle through life, to a new and expanded consciousness where the world will appear as different as night from day. In fact you could simply describe the process as moving from Darkness to Light. Human beings will recover their true potential, and the spiritual dimension of our being will be united with mind, body and feelings. We will be whole and united as One: with each other, nature and God.
We do not need to split, or to destroy our ego. Ego is our personality - our face to the world, as well as our inner thoughts, fears, likes, desires, needs. It's an essential part of being a human being, our everyday conscious thinking self. Without wanting to do well competitively, to play and win at the games of life, the world would be back in the Stone Age, yet often we're told how our "selfish ego" is such a barrier to spiritual growth. Well, a selfish ego is a barrier, but personal growth is about transcending the ego, not weakening it - it's already too weak and afraid, which is why it's immaturely selfish and hateful.
The ego - our thinking mind - should be embraced and loved, like a child growing up, not rejected as imperfect. The more developed and mature it is, the more transparent it becomes to the spiritual essence that lies behind the personality. The ego then becomes an instrument of Love. The ego is ascended.
Personal growth is about integrating and loving; it is never about separating and destroying. Ascension involves clearing, integrating and transcending all barriers, to be one with God and also with the body-mind, purified by Love - since there is no separation in truth, in Love.
If you're one with God and God includes everything, then you're also one with everything, at the highest viewpoint of oneself - the Higher Self. The Higher Self may be better described as our connection with God. It is Self. It is God too... expressing and experiencing through us... it is our all-knowing, all-loving Source of being.
The more we are aware of our connection with God, the less reason the ego has to fear its awful loss of identity at death. This fear underlies all others and releasing it opens a huge pathway for the illumination of Love to lighten the shadows of our personality. The healing of fears is always Love: unconditional acceptance. A beautiful aspect of love is that it never dies. You live on in all that you love; you live on because you ARE Love.
Free at last, one might add. That freedom will demand all of our responsibility and energies, in order to create all that needs to be remade, and to restore the world to peace, justice and abundance for all.
A radical inner transformation and rise to a new level of consciousness might be the only real hope we have in the current global crisis brought on by the dominance of the Western mechanistic paradigm." ~Stanislav Grof

- The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies, and Possibilities
It began with the Mayan calendar--a startling astrological artifact that reaches its end point in the year 2012. As major spiritual traditions, independent researchers, and archaeological findings all point toward this date as a critical moment in human history, readers everywhere are starting to ask the same question: What will happen in 2012? For the first time, the leading authorities on the 2012 phenomenon are all given voice in a single book, now available in paperback: The Mystery of 2012. An invaluable resource for readers who want to learn more about this time of change, this fascinating book features essays from dozens of prominent thinkers, including:
- Gregg Braden's examination of the scientific evidence for a shift in the earth's magnetic field--and how it will affect all life
- Barbara Marx Hubbard's and Peter Russell's explorations of the "accelerating pace of evolution"--why we may literally be transforming into a new species
- John Major Jenkins' journey to the source for answers: the original Mayan calendar
- Ecologist Joanna Macy's vision of "the Great Turning," and how we can take part in this shift to a life-sustaining culture
- Daniel Pinchbeck on the meaning behind the rise in psychic phenomena as we approach 2012.
Are we coming to the end of a cosmic cycle? Will there be an age of awakening, a new step in human evolution, or even an end to the world we know? Here is a thought-provoking and comprehensive exploration into the possibilities of this pivotal time.
- Great Shift, The: Co-Creating a New World for 2012 and Beyond
This extraordinary book brings together many sources of important information on the changes occurring within our world, ourselves, and the evolution of consciousness leading up to the year 2012. The text is addressed in part to Lightworkers, for whom the energy shift now gearing up has been ongoing for at least the last twenty years.
The time is getting closer. The Great Shift is a progress report from the field and the messages are positive. "You don't have to logically do anything but 'show up' with spiritual intent, and the DNA quantum field is activated in your body," Kryon says. He tells us to expect changes and peace we may have never thought to see in our lifetimes, even in the Middle East. He says, "God is not a controlling force. Look for the love."
Tom Kenyon channeling the Hathors, a group consciousness entity, reminds us, "It is your attention to an event that makes it conscious." Kenyon also explains what channeled material is, which is important in understanding how we co-create our own world: "From the standpoint of neuropsychology, channeled information is just another expression of our brain/mind potential - a movement into the unknown territory of one's own psyche to see what emerges in terms of contact (with other intelligences) and information."
The Hathors message for what is now and what is to come: "It is so simple, it is forgotten... Find a way to live your life in joy and happiness." Mary Magdalen, through Tom Kenyon, makes it clear that restoring the balance between male and female energies will mean good things for men as well as women and will reignite our creative potency. Patricia Cori channeling the High Council of Sirius reminds us that the future is never predetermined and the past is an illusion--different for each of us.
