On this day before the Solstice, I am feeling more and more the
tension and the anxiety in the Collective Consciousness, And also the
anger and the disempowerment. As a society we have reached a
Crossroads and we must make choices. Much of these feelings have to
do with the unfolding horror of the Gulf Oil disaster. It seems as
though this, more than any other recent event, has brought home to
people the very real consequences of our present relationship with the
Earth, and how very damaging and destructive it is and continues to be.

In
reading the angry and despairing comments of many people, I was
reminded how very much this situation is like the one portrayed in the
recent movie "". The cold and detached who was only
interested in profits and was prepared to destroy a people and a forest
without thinking twice, bears an uncanny resemblance to the CEO of the
responsible for the Gulf disaster.

I have always
believed that art, and films, are expressions of the Collective
Consciousness, and that you can tell a lot about a culture by looking
at the art and entertainment that it produces. In many cases these are
upwellings of Collective feelings about life. If we were to look at
Avatar in this way, it would seem that Humanity is tired of the
Corporate Greed and the Economy of Profit that leads to the destruction
of the environment and the disempowerment of people. There is a
Collective desire to return to the "forest", that interconnection with
Nature and the pulses of Cosmic , and to be something different,
an expression of the "people" rather than a cipher in a violent and
destructive corporate money game. This is, of course, the whole nature
and purpose of the Fifth Dimension and the New Earth. Indeed, we stand
at a Crossroads. As a Collective, we can now make the choice that
will shift our Planet into the Fifth Dimension as a whole, or we can
continue down this path of profit and greed, until the next disaster
when we will be faced with the same choices again.

I was struck
by the similarity between the Avatar story and the traditional story of
the Grail, because the archetypes are that familiar. In Avatar, the
hero is a crippled soldier who becomes the warrior who frees the
Planet. He goes through several transformations and initiations to
become part of the "people". In the Grail story, the is
deeply wounded and his land has become a Waste Land. He can only be
healed when the Grail seeker finds the Grail and is able to find the
Grail "question", that question being "whom does the Grail serve?". In
then 21st Century we know that the Grail is the Human Being, the
vessel for Divine Spirit, and the question is, whom do we serve? The
Divine Purpose of Life and Evolution, or the Economic needs of Big
Corporations?

This is a complex question, because life has evolved
on this planet to support 7 billion people, and the way forward must
be able to sustain and support this population. We cannot go back to
the Stone Age. We are a technological society, and we need to develop
technologies that are clean and that honor all forms of life. We need
to stop raping the Earth for resources to fuel artificial economic
growth for profit and find ways to live in harmony with the Earth and
in partnership with other forms of life. We need to find ways to build
communities that are expression of the "people" and not market places
for ever expanding consumerism, while still providing for our daily
needs and the expression of who we are.

No, not easy. But the
choice must be made now, it is that important. And it will not be made
for us. We will not be lifted miraculously to another place and no one
will arrive in a space ship to save us from ourselves. As the Hopi
say, We are the Ones we have been Waiting for. We are the Ones. We
need to empower ourselves and become Warriors of Light and start asking
the right questions in our lives. Who are we serving? Are we
conscious of Who we Are and our Power. And yes, many of us are, and
are doing all we can right now.

I know that many, many of us, are
entering into the Collective Consciousness and the Dream Time to
intervene with holographic images of Paradise and a Cleansed Earth and
Oceans, working with the Cetaceans and the Angels and Masters and the
Indigenous Peoples to find ways to lift Earth into the Fifth
Dimensional reality of Beauty and Love. And this Power Point of the
Solstice is the ideal moment to combine our energies to make a powerful
intervention in the Collective Consciousness to say "Yes" we have
chosen to be part of the New Earth and to serve the Divine Purpose on
Earth.

However, unlike in "Avatar", this will not be achieved with
violence, but by coming together to give our energies to new
initiatives and new forms of Community that express who we are as the
"People". We are only beginning this work, and the first step must be
the choice to be part of the solution and the New Energy of the Fifth
Dimension.

If you can make that declaration as part of the
Solstice Ceremony, then you will be empowering the Collective by
letting it know that you are a Warrior of Light and that you are
committed to the Peaceful Transformation of the Planet into the Fifth
Dimension of Connection, into the Noosphere of Light.

You can say
a simple sentence such as : "I commit myself to the Service of the
Light and the Peaceful Transformation of the Planet into the Fifth
Dimension of Love and Connection, and I serve the Earth and all her
life forms for the Highest Good and with the support of Spirit. And So
it Is".

Then, allow Spirit to guide you and become aware of
choices that you can make in your daily life that will guide you
forward. It makes little sense now to blame and accuse and be angry
other than to awaken people to how far down the path of environmental
destruction we are. Maybe we are grieving for what we have lost, so
that we can move forward into the future. It is time to make another
choice and to follow another path forwards as a Collective. It starts
with us and it starts with the Desire for Love and Peace expressed in
gentle but powerful ways! The Collective Consciousness is waiting to
hear from Us! Now!

So, here is an interesting interpretation of
"Avatar" that highlights the inner need to develop "empathy" and
"compassion" and aspects of wisdom that will move us beyond
exploitation and control.

And
here is a song that I played at a gathering in at the beginning
of the year, ’s beautiful "Heal
the World
".
