In Light of Our Current World Events (2020-2021) How Can You Be In This World and Not of It?
It's so interesting to consider the fact that Dr. Hawkins passed in 2012!
He's lived through the 1st and 2nd world wars. What's going on today isn't unique!?!
The circumstances may be unique, but the "energies" or consciousness is the same expression which is a, seemingly, never-ending battle or struggle with the creation of the lower mind, lower consciousness, and the ego.
Dr. Hawkins's sage advice is relatively simple and provides a sense of relief in that you don't have to necessarily "do" anything unless you are moved to. You only have to be loving and hold the intention of higher levels of consciousness as to how you are going to be regardless of world events and mass consciousness.
Your decision to remain true to "being" anything of higher consciousness off-sets the negativity of lower consciousness. In fact, Dr. Hawkins speaks about simply choosing one thing to be and hold true to that with dedication and intention and that's enough!
Here are some simple ways of being that are of higher consciousness that doesn't require you to be a Living Saint (575) or Living Buddha (1,000):
- Considerate (295)
- Honest (200)
- Thoughtful (225)
- Dependable (250), and Dr. Hawkins favorite "go-to" way of being,
- Kind (220)
These and many more can be found in Dr. Hawkins's Book of Slides on page 36.
Here's what Dr. Hawkins has to say:
"We are always confronted with the seeming spiritual dilemmas of the expression of the ego and its expression as the collective actions of society.
In any case, the only thing any of us can do is within our own hearts is to reach the highest level of compassion and understanding and try to recontextualize it compassionately because in so doing, we undo it!
Each of those that have been able to undo great negativity can do so because that has been supported by the hearts of all of us. They didn't do it alone...
The evolution of mankind is due to the contributions of all of us...
Each one of us counts QUITE DECISIVELY!
(This calibrates as true.)"
