We all make choices, every single day. Sometimes consciously but most of the times, unconsciously. - We need, however, to become a lot more aware of our choices and understand that our life unfolds according to them. - Let’s not enter that place of blame, for you are the only one responsible for your actions and your own reactions, too. - Life always brings you contrast and at those times, you also have a choice: Trust or not. - I say: Trust and you will be rewarded with the most fulfilling life, no matter what. - With much love, Eva 💕
The only way for humanity to rise above its current dilemma is to transcend the consciousness of duality and separation and see through the eyes of oneness. No amount of fighting, blaming or controlling will EVER lead to peace. The reason is because the desire to control others and eliminate the "enemy" arises out of the very consciousness that created the problem to begin with, namely duality and separation. The nature of duality dictates that there must always be two relative viewpoints that are polar opposites - good and evil, right and wrong and so on. All nations that desire control believe what they are doing is somehow beneficial, but in order to feel superior and justified in their actions and stay in accordance with their dualistic nature, there must be an enemy, someone who is their polar opposite. Due to the widespread prevalence of duality on earth, another group will always take up that role and play out the other extreme. But that group will then believe they are the superior ones and that the other group are evil, thus reinforcing the duality consciousness. As you can probably see there is literally no end to this circuitous logic. In duality, evil must always have an enemy in order to feel justified and so any attempt to control the world and create a centralized government that could control everything is a false dream of the fallen beings, because an enemy is always needed, and so they will eventually begin to fight amongst themselves. So duality consciousness is in a sense self-defeating and one side must realize this before they all descend into total destruction. The only way to rise above it all and bring the Golden Age to earth, is for enough to people to transcend the consciousness of duality, see through the eyes of unconditional love and as Jesus said, turn the other cheek.
