Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, spoke often of the “Laws of Nature”, the invisible dynamics of karma, creation, and dharma, enveloped within the rising and falling Yugas; the massive tides of Cosmic consciousness.
We are in such an upswing of Cosmic consciousness now. We are moving towards a more peaceful world. Even as the deadly machinery of war remains ever ready – ‘defense’ we call it… The Yugas, each thousands of years in length, operate like tides across the cosmic oceans, allowing our global consciousness to rise and fall over time, with the positive greatly outweighing the negative.
Now is such a rising tide, an up-welling, triggered and sustained by the many souls on the planet awakened to their Infinite nature.
Another global dynamic has come into play now too, accounting for the many directions we seem to be going in, simultaneously. Coming from an age of inertia and lethargy, tamo guna dominant, into an age of motion and energy, raja guna dominant, activity is furious in all domains now. In terms of global change, Heaven on Earth, this transition is critical, because a sattvic (Divine) environment cannot emerge directly from tamas (inertia, stasis) – it must go through rajas (activity) first. It is the Law. 🙂
So, as Maharishi said, “All is well and wisely set”. Even though appearances around the globe may seem to still reflect the past, or cause us to be fearful of the future, it is something of a mirage, proven over time to be so.
Like an old man waving a rusty saber or plotting in a back room, the past will seek to sustain itself, but the light is here and growing. Light doesn’t act in opposition, though a blast of it in complete darkness can be startling. After the initial shock though, it remains to bring truth, clarity, and peace.
With light we can see others as ourselves. By diving deep within we discover commonality, and peace. This changes the global psychology from one of beasts fighting for territory and spoils, to a simple recognition that there has always been more than enough for all. We find peace within and bring peace into the world.
Just as sin and evil have had ripple effects in our world for too long, so do peace and acceptance. If such ripples of peace are deep enough, and they are, nothing can overcome them. Such is the world we are creating, of manifest peace, manifest strength, and manifest fearlessness. It is easy. After all – we already have the Cosmos on our side. 🙂
There is no need for grand gestures – give a little money to someone sleeping rough, be kind, express your heart, find your joy and silence too. Live a peaceful and compassionate life from the inside, out. Bring Heaven on Earth one person at a time. Then, simply Radiate. Thank you.
