The Ones We Have Been Waiting For

I am still reflecting about the idea of the second coming of Jesus, and also the mythology of the superheroes that would eventually come to instate a reign of justice and peace on Earth.

When reflecting about the return of the Great Spiritual Teachers to Earth, I believe that we are the ones who bring them back. We do so by communing with the same Divine Energy those Evolved Beings were able to harness and put to good use. By doing so we become able to emulate them and practice their teachings on loving, caring and sharing. Although we have been waiting for the return of the Grand Spiritual Teachers of the past to bring Heaven to Earth, I prefer to believe that we are the ones we have been waiting for.

Consider the following ideas… If Heaven is a place where everyone is loved then it is by loving one another that we create Heaven; it is by treating all Creation with love and kindness that we bring Heaven to Earth.

Can we do this?

Sure we can!

And if this is all we need to do, then we have the power to do it. Manifesting Heaven on Earth is in our hands.

Still, we go through our lives living as if God, an external being, who we believe exists somewhere outside of ourselves, has left us. We dream of the day when God, or one of God’s powerful emissaries, will come to bring justice and peace to us. But God is not a ruthless parent who has abandoned us. If you see God as an external being, then consider that it is the other way around: we are the ones who, in some many ways, evicted God from our lives. We became so self-centered, so full of guilt, shame, and a sense of unworthiness, and so immersed in our trivial distractions, that we are incapable of seeing God anywhere.

We forgot the 3 Rs: We don’t remember God. We don’t recognize God. We don’t reveal God.

We forgot the 3 Cs: We don’t connect with God. We don’t communicate with God. We don’t commune with God.

We forget to acknowledge the miraculous beings that we are. We don’t take time to feel God in us. We don’t appreciate the beauty and the miracles that surround us. We are incapable of recognizing Heaven on Earth.

Unfortunately for all humanity, those who are disconnected from the Divine Mystery are not only experiencing their own hell on Earth, but are also spreading pain and suffering to those around them.

When we think of God as another being, what we have done is to come up with an image of a god that is based on our limited imagination.

Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God book series, lists the following as five false beliefs about God:

There are Five Fallacies about God that create crisis, violence, killing, and war.

1 – First, the idea that God needs something.

2 – Second, the idea that God can fail to get what He needs.

3 – Third, the idea that God has separated you from Him because you have not given Him what He needs.

4 – Fourth, the idea that God still needs what He needs so badly that God now requires you, from your separated position, to give it to Him.

5 – Fifth, the idea that God will destroy you if you do not meet His requirements.

If we believe that we are separated and disconnected from one another, then to imagine a god that is also separated and disconnected from us makes perfect sense.

If we get mad at some individuals and mistreat and abandon them, believing in a god that got mad and abandoned us is perfectly plausible.

Operating at this level of consciousness, we create a god based on our own image, the only limited image of ourselves that we are able to see and understand.

But what if we had a different understanding?

What if we realized that we have created a god in our own image?

What if we came to our senses and realized that it’s the other way around?

What if we really believed and lived, in all its exuberance, the truth that God created us in God’s image?

Pause for a moment and think. This is huge, immense!

It is up to us to wake up, leave the lower levels of consciousness, take the path to the higher levels where we connect, communicate and commune with God, where we recognize and reveal God, and where we realize our God-nature and our immense potential.

The moment we begin to operate at a higher level of consciousness we are blessed with the new understanding that we are, at the same time, human and divine, mortal and immortal, many and one.

We realize that we are, at the same time, fruits of creation and creators, and that we have the Divine spark in us, a spark that we can nurture, enhance and utilize to bring about miracles.

We are not separated from God, simply because this is not possible. God is all. We are God. And there isn’t a drop of blasphemy here; not at all. God is not another being. God is in us and we are in God. We are particles of God. God is where and when we exist. We are immersed and surrounded by God. God is everything: Divine Source, Divine Fields and Particles, Divine Energy and Matter.

God is Love, and as long as we are Love, we are God.

Here’s the equation:

1 – God is Love.

2 – I am Love.

3 – I am God.

This awakening and enlightenment empowers us to have a positive impact on all life. It is then, at that moment, that we become the ones we have been waiting for.

We have the power to do it. Manifesting Heaven on Earth is in our hands.

Namaste! I bow to the Divinity in you. I salute God in you.

I recognize the Divine in me and all around me, and I rejoice.

We Have Work To Do

Holding on to the idea that we cannot bring Heaven to Earth on our own, without external help, many people simply wait, hoping for that day when a superhero will arrive and clean the mess that we have created. Think for a moment on the long list of blockbuster movies and our adored superheroes: Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Thor, Captain America, and so on. This idea — that a superhero will come and fix our problems — is etched in the collective unconscious of humanity. The story of the hero who sacrifices himself to save others is one that has been told and retold innumerable times in all cultures: it is a constant tale in our universal human mythology. Joseph Campbell, the great mythologyst called it The Hero’s Journey. Such repetition of the story has led many of us to believe that the only possible way for justice and harmony to reign on Earth rests on the intervention of one of those prodigious beings. Many of us have convinced ourselves that that is our fate, and that we should accept it with resignation. So all we do — all we believe we can do — is to hope and pray for a mighty being with super powers to come and save us.

Although I don’t dislike the idea of a superhero who will come to our rescue, I feel that this thought unconsciously leads us to leave the hard work in someone else’s hands.  It is easier to say, “We cannot do anything. Only someone with enormous power can bring the peace and unity of Heaven to Earth!”

Well, in my opinion, this is just an easy way out, an excuse we have created for doing nothing. We need to put our fear and indolence aside, roll up our sleeves, and take action. We have work to do, and I suggest we begin this work by examining the validity of the ideas we hold, such as the idea held by many of those who embrace the Christian faith that the second coming of Jesus is the only way of solving humanity’s problems.

Let’s pause and think for a moment…

Maybe those special envoys  from Heaven — the ones who we believe are the only ones capable of installing generosity, justice and solidarity on Earth — will actually come when they are no longer needed. Maybe we have to do the work first, fix what needs to be fixed first, and then they will come. So, let’s embrace the idea that those heroes come to Earth through us. Instead of waiting, and leaving everything that needs to be done in their hands, I feel called to put my talents and skills to work, and offer my contribution, however humble, to bring justice, peace and unity to Earth now. And I invite you to do the same. We are the heroes of our own dreams. We are the ones we have been waiting for. If we imitate the Evolved Masters who came before us, and if we practice the lessons of unselfishness and loving kindness that they taught us, we will bring them back to Earth; we will bring Heaven to Earth.

This is not difficult, not at all. In fact, it is quite easy. It starts with recognizing that God is within everyone. Once we recognize the Divine Presence within each person, we are compelled to treat everyone, even our enemies, with the utmost kindness. We realize that no one comes into our lives by chance, and that everyone we interact with is as important to us as we are to them. We realize that we can learn from them as they can learn from us. We come to the understanding that we can teach them as they can teach us. We develop this inner conviction that we are all interconnected, and that we are all in this together. Every encounter becomes a special opportunity to love, care and share, and it is through this mutual loving, caring, and sharing that we bring Heaven to Earth.

So let us love others, care for others, and share with others, because whatever we do for others, we do for our own selves.

Namaste! I bow to the Divinity in you. I salute God in you.
