Keep your intent strong, that which you hold in your heart, the means by which you achieve an end, but equally the spark of an inspiration, the energy you put into upholding that which you truly know, accept, and envision as possible. Keep your intent strong, your heart calm, and your truth always known. In this manner, with loving kindness, weather through the worst of times. Each day, declare your intent aloud for the good of the self and the greater good of all. Intent!
An animal stalks its prey, waiting patiently, instinctively knowing the best moment to strike. Shamans regularly stalk a new identity, when the time has come for them to transform and move on into new life. In this New Era we find ourselves in, we must all stalk a new identity.
To stalk, we must first turn to the ego’s behavior and study its habitual patterns in order to know which to strike to ensure survival in this New Era. Stalking requires pragmatic objectivity to be effective. Belief systems that superimpose their interpretations upon reality miss the mark of what truly is. To stalk is to be a true scientist.
The salient quality of ego is its decision making capability. Though all species may be said to make decisions, only humans have the ability to act contrary to their instinctive programs. Humans, therefore, have functioned as the deliberative brain of planet Earth, altering instinctive programs at will. As a result, Planet Earth has entered into a period of revolt; in striking out the ruling human ego she stalks her own new identity.
We watch, every day, as Planet Earth continues her drastic transformation; evident currently in the fires of Australia, earthquakes in Puerto Rico, volcano in the Philippines, and tornadoes and early summer in different parts of mainland America.
If we stalk the governing ego of the world at present, in human form, what is revealed is an inflated sense of self-importance that blatantly denies the reality of climate change, and is focused on the total exploitation of the Earth, for the material gain of itself. This ego stance is intent upon completely imposing its will upon the Earth, positioning itself as the master of all of nature.
How can such a ruling attitude adapt to the multitude of changes happening daily before our eyes? At best, we might call it a valiant attempt to hold onto the dominating feature of the old era, in what we might characterize as, “ego’s last stand.” But, like buildings being toppled by earthquakes, this exaggerated attitude will, of necessity, collapse amidst the growing imperative of Earth’s transformation.
Ego, as the active side of decision making, is critical to survival in this New Era. However, ego must align itself with the true needs of the self, and the planet. This requires a perspective that considers the interdependent relationship of all things, what could be called the energetic oneness of everything.
The byproduct of this oneness, the glue that holds it all together, is love. Thus, for ego to align itself lovingly with the interconnected oneness of everything would be the correct attitude to stalk, as we inevitably go with the flow of the changes of this New Era.
Our New Era is replete with violation. Violation is the catalyst that opens the portal to new worlds. Trauma survivors and shamans alike know the transporting effect of violation ushering in unknown worlds.
What was once the restricted province of shamans and unwitting victims is now the everyday reality for the entire human race: violation and entry into new worlds of possibility. Blame for violation, at this stage, cannot contain the deeper truth, that we are all part of a collective shamanic journey now, our evolutionary destiny. We are not victims but adventurers forging a new path in a New Era.
Clearly, it is nature herself leading the charge of violation in this New Era, as Planet Earth reshapes herself. Current human ego decision making, at the highest levels, reflects nature’s ruthlessness. But here the analogy ends. Ruthlessness rooted in narcissistic injury is isolated and immature. Only ego, in the service of the greater good, can safely navigate this New Era we are in. Only ego in alignment with what is truly right for all can lead us safely forward.
As individuals, we are being asked to stalk our personal ego’s attitudes, decisions, and actions to determine their true intent. Is my ego aligned with interconnected reality and the greater good? On the local level of everyday life, in the body, is my ego in alignment with the true needs of the self? Does my ego cater to the special interest groups within the self that demand habits that undermine the health of the self?
The New Era we have entered requires a consensus reality to fortify its stability. That consensus reality is built upon a mass of individuals upholding a heart-centered loving foundation for ego to act from. This begins with stalking the ego in one’s everyday life, and striking from its repertoire self-centered thoughts, decisions, and behaviors.
The cumulative effect of a mass collective intent, lovingly bent upon the greater good, will be to arrive at the right attitude with which to live and lead this deeply reconfigured Planet Earth of the New Era. Make your own worthy contribution by first and foremost stalking your own ego, lovingly.
In our audio channeling this week we are all advised to take care of ourselves and Mother Earth too, to do our part to save the planet, to truly become responsible Earth Dwellers. There are many ways to become responsible, beginning with where we live and how we live.
Do something good for the planet today, and then again tomorrow, and every day after that. Just do something good.
Day by day, moment by moment, whenever you think of it, remind yourself that you are a changing being, available to the greater energies that direct change on a universal level. In reminding yourself of this fact, you reconnect to the greater interconnected energy that makes all things possible, to the magical, the mysterious, and the magnificent, to the positive life force that surrounds you, that permeates you, that encourages and entices you to take advantage of it, to tap into it. So don’t forget that you are part of it all, part of the greater good, part of the whole, part of a larger vision that creates and allows, that makes everything come together, that seeks unity, and a world of loving kindness and compassion, happiness and sharing, with equanimity for all beings. And that is good!
Let your heart be your guide. Though your mind may dominate with its thoughts and ideas, turn to the quiet of your heart and there find your peace, your calmness, your stability. In the quietude of your own heart know yourself anew, as an ethereal being comprised of loving kindness, as a soul in search of home, as a knower of all things, as a speaker of truth, as a seeker of all that is good. From your heart be gently guided to all that is right without confusion or controversy. Listen to your heart as each beat sends outwardly its loving intentions and inwardly its calming reverberations. When there is nothing else to depend on, turn to your heart. When there is nothing else to trust, trust your heart. The heart knows.
