Be the Sunshine!
All too often, we tend to approach our personal evolution as though it is only about our seemingly separate selves. But what if our individual evolution affects the entire planet? You already know that when people suffer, it contributes the energy of that suffering to the planetary whole. So if we each make the effort to evolve towards peace and happiness in our individual lives, then clearly that contributes a positive, uplifting energy into the same planetary whole.
Why not think of our world as holding an ecological balance of consciousness and energy? This would certainly suggest that collectively we are vastly out of balance, since the consciousness and energy of pain and suffering far outweighs that of harmony and peace. Do you realize that we can each become a significant player in Earth’s evolution by contributing a joyful, happy energy into this out-of-balance larger whole? The only way to do this authentically is to strive to improve our individual lives to become lives that bring us joy.
Let’s use a simple image to illustrate this point. Imagine that the color grey represents the energy of pain, suffering, and human depression. Now imagine that the color yellow represents happiness. If we could draw a global map of Earth’s atmosphere of human consciousness using these two colors, what would that map look like? What would be the predominant color? Well, grey, of course.
If you have an unhappy life, which of these two colors do you contribute to the planetary whole? You contribute even more grey, therefore adding to the atmosphere of suffering. If you choose to evolve your life into one where you experience more peace and happiness, what color do you therefore contribute? Yellow! Yellow is like the sunshine on a grey, cloudy day. It uplifts and energizes. It cheers people up and makes them feel better. What if the energy of your life did the same thing for the collective whole?
To evolve your life into one of peace and happiness takes effort. It is not always easy to be motivated in that direction. But what if you knew that your effort made a difference to the greater whole? When you bring your own life into balance it allows you to literally breath more joy into the world, which delicately raises the energy for everyone else. Tie your individual evolution into that of the planet, and allow everything that you do, say, think, and feel to make a positive difference. Everybody wins, including you. There is simply no downside to you being happy. This is a beautiful way to be inspired to improve your own life, and thus improve the consciousness in the world at large.
