Blend In or Let Your Light So Shine?

Zen Gardner posted an article called, “When Chaos Hits: Blending In With Your Surroundings is a Must.” That post has generated some interesting discussion ranging from “just lie low and blend in” to “you can’t hide” to “Better to burn out brightly, sharing one’s light with all one might reach. than fade away deservedly.” I thought I’d share the portion of the conversation that I participated in, and you can read the rest of the comments by clicking here.

Blend in? Isn’t that what 90% of the world has already been doing their whole lives? Modern Orwellian society IS a blender. It blends. And that’s what most of the herd has been raised to do. Blend.

Now is the time to Stand. Stand Up. Stand out. Stand in…..but NOT stand down. The coward “survives”. Those living with actual purpose THRIVE and inspire others, by their open courage and conviction not to “blend in”. But to band together around common principle, and THRIVE. Leaving the ‘blending in’ to those of a lesser persuasion who value ‘life’ as but a commodity to use.

Better to burn out brightly, sharing one’s light with all one might reach. than fade away deservedly.

Live Courageously and with Higher Purpose.

Life is but a dream….and a short one at that.

Blessings

Agreed, NFR2014! I was just going to comment something similar — that an alternative is to shine so brightly that it makes you invisible to those who would harm you. Some people have come far enough on their journey that they will NEVER blend in by trying to be like everyone else.

I am reminded of Jesus “disappearing” in the crowd, but there is plenty of faery lore and indigenous lore of people becoming impervious to bullets or being unable to be shot down. Governments have been concerned enough about such things to research paranormal events and techniques, but most them require a purity of heart not found among those trying to develop those skills for ill intent.

The end of the movie, The Celestine Prophecy shows a great visual of this kind of invisibility happening when spontaneously needed. I garden. I prep and I know my neighbors and work to build community resilience. I have had occasions in life in which I needed to walk through very dangerous territory. I had nothing for protection except energy and whatever (substantial) protection I have from the other realms. People refused to harm me. Our home gets passed over when robberies occur all around us. There are ways in which shining brightly and not blending in saves you. I have lived to tell the tales and heard many similar. Blessings on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride…

Laura, that’s one great comment. 🙂

I’m living in a country where the mainstream tells us we are on the brink of civil war. I walk in the sunlit streets and talk to my neighbours – no civil war in sight or in their hearts. Why? because they/we have lived long enough to realize that everything is and has always been in a state of flux.

Yes, it does appear to be a tipping point right now and not only in this south east Asian country.
What is great about a tipping point is – that it can be tipped!

Tipped through the power of synchronous focused intention to manifest a world with greater kindness, compassionate action, clear thinking but with less greed and ego dominance.

This conscious redirection of focused intention on a shared basis lifts the spirits of those involved.
It is palpable,
You can feel it.
It increases the vibration rate of the energy fields of those involved. It not only allows you to become invisible to those who resonate at a lower level than yours, but it radiates out into the community, helping others to feel more confident and empowered in turn.

There’s no better time to do that than now!

@Soliel: “What is great about a tipping point is – that it can be tipped!” Exactly! Continued blessings on your inspirational journey. 🙂

I very much like your vision Laura (and NFR2014′s as well). Unfortunately, I think it may lack a fundamental acknowledgement of our present reality, a reality that we have collectively allowed. A reality that has demonstrated that when the sovereigns (that’s us) allow it, that evil can triumph over right, ultimately via force. This force will always be exerted by other humans or the machines that we have created.

Shining a light into as many hearts and minds as possible is critical, both now and then. But when that heart and mind is immovably employed as an agent of those that wish for our ultimate destruction, and is projecting said force and violence in our direction, then for the sake of this present existence, we must now outlast them as we pursue “the road back”, through all means that are compatible with universal love: that is non-aggression with vigorous defense.

Their sick monuments dot the landscape as trophies, and their history pages pay false homage to the victims of their murderous paradigm. Martyrs cannot tell their stories, as their stories will be twisted, then retold for them (Yeshua the Nazerene comes to mind).

@Scooter: I am very much aware of the challenges that face us. After extremely careful assessment of my skills, temperament, values and direct life experiences, I’ve made a calculated choice to live as I live because I have found it — consistently — to be the most effective. I also know veterans of various wars, and the psychic ones survive. I know that not everyone knows how to do this, nor do I expect the majority to step into this level of awareness. I’m simply acknowledging that it IS possible. I have witnessed it in my own life and others. I’ve had our car approached by muggers with guns who left completely dazed, confused and smiling, unaware of what “hit” them.

Our neighbors had their stolen goods returned and were extra blessed after I put a return “tag” on anything taken from our two properties. (Our house, though the most logical one to steal from on our block, is always passed over for robberies … and wisely so, I might add.) I have been in extremely dangerous spiritual traps and Houdini’d my way out as effectively as the more mundane 3D traps. It’s about energy, awareness and cooperation/willingness to accept help from the Otherside. That allows me to step into really dark, shadowy situations to help people that I otherwise could not safely assist.

I don’t care whether or not I become a martyr — no interest in that. I have enough awareness of my past lives and enough communication with people from beyond the grave that I have never been afraid to die — even when it seemed imminent or already to have happened. I realize I’m the weird one, but I am not the ONLY one able to access this level of protection and awareness. I’m simply offering a different perspective for people who, realistically, have zero hope of ever blending into the background. Some people stick out no matter what. If that’s the case, then better to shine so brightly you blind those who would harm you … or remove yourself from their frequency and level of awareness. I have personally had experiences in which my frequency was so vastly different from those around me that they could not see me or acknowledge me. It’s not unlike speaking such volumes of truth that people just ignore you. 🙂

Courage: The Time is Now

This is a call to all Lightworkers, Raw Foodies, Conscious Eaters, Natural Medicine Lovers, Healers, Mystics, Artists, Inventors, Uplifters, Green Witches, Faery Lovers, and Freedom Fighters:

There has never been a better time than right now to reveal your inner magnificence to the world. If you have felt oppressed, ignored, or misunderstood, this is your chance to prove yourself. This is your chance to celebrate. Now is the time to let all that repressed beauty, wackiness and enthusiasm explode from within your heart and mind. Now is the time to get creative. To love yourself. AND your neighbor. Now is the time to share the best you’ve got. As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

As Marianne Williamson puts it:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Let’s see some of that power! Let’s see how big we can grow.

Occupy Wall Street has grown to Occupying other cities. The media continues to block most of what’s happening there, but that doesn’t make it go away. People are waking up all over the place, realizing they have inherent rights to prosperity, joy, peace and freedom. People have had enough of the illusion of being slaves. Earth is a free will planet. Let freedom ring.

Let freedom ring and sing like a Tibetan bowl whose sounds expand upon each other, creating a vortex of transformation. Let freedom wash over this country and this Earth. Let the golden light flow into and around every living creature and every created thing. Let the words “as above so below” permeate our minds and manifest miraculous things in our reality.

Let “following our bliss” become the norm, not the exception. Jesus said, “The kingdom of god is within you.” And you. And you. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, and I have one, too. I dream of a life so full of joy and abundance for everyone that people realize they really can do, be, have and create everything they ever loved or would love to love. Maybe it’s the faery in me, but if I could use my magic wand and sprinkle pixie dust across the universe, I would scatter happiness far and wide. I would join the cosmic giggle and the music of the spheres and dance and sing in harmony with the Universe.

We can do this now. Even in the face of seemingly extreme obstacles. I was blessed to attend the Deva Premal, Miten and Manose concert in Madison, WI last night. Deva echoed my thoughts about “negative energy” when introducing the song, “Narasimha,” which offers protection from all obstacles, doubters, and oppressors. While Deva Premal does not focus on negative or dark energy, she recognizes the challenges of those following an alternative path. She explained that Narasimha is a fierce warrior who fights against tyranny. If you read the myth linked here, I suspect you’ll recognize some parallels to our world of BigBanks, BigPharma, mainstream media and rogue governments. The sweet melody reminds us that strength can arrive in the form of Grace, rather than bullying:

We can continue to focus on “all the good stuff” and let the Universe sort out the details. We can have courage through our love. I will leave you with another Deva Premal song from last night’s concert. Tumare Darshan expresses overwhelming gratitude for all that is. As Meister Eckhart assures us, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” We are the ones we have been waiting for, and what we have been waiting for already is. We just need to recognize and love it into our experience. I hope this song evokes as much joy in you as it does in me.
