Like some of you, I feel like I’m here on a mission to use self-expression to raise awareness and uplift people. I want to spread knowledge and help people understand spirituality, elite corruption and any other topic that’s relevant to the things we’re doing, because knowledge, especially of these subjects, is liberating.
I want to help people understand that life is nothing like the existing power structures want us to believe, and beyond what we consider ‘normal’ reality lies the true reality we once freely inhabited and, in fact, still do on another level.
For centuries, spiritual seekers have tried to glimpse this reality – some successfully, some not – and my purpose is to help you all become aware that it exists and it’s accessible. I myself have only recently become aware of it, and the small glimpses I’ve received have encouraged me to write about it and, hopefully, help others glimpse it too.
All around the world, spiritual seekers are realizing that they’re on this world for a reason, and as they do, they rise up to fulfill their mission. While it’s hard in the beginning, stepping into our role is one of the most rewarding, liberating, satisfying things we can do.
It’s second only to exploring our consciousness with meditation or other inner tools, and if we can do these two things in conjunction (fulfilling our mission and exploring our consciousness), we’ll create a life we can be excited about instead of loathing or trying to avoid.
The key is to willingly give up the things that stop us from exploring ourselves or playing our role in humanity’s awakening, and it helps to call on our higher consciousness as often as possible.
Even with our higher consciousness by our side, we might not always be willing to play our role. This can cause us to stray from the work we’d otherwise be excited about, and by the end of the day, we’ll probably feel distant or disconnected.
Things will start to feel ‘off’, and we’ll feel like we’re missing out on something important. We are, because we’re failing to pursue our passion. We’re blocking ourselves from our purpose, and when we realize it, we might question why we hesitated in the first place.
The best answer I can come up with is that fear stops us from taking our creativity further, and if you have trepidations about your work, fear is probably stopping you making any more progress. The question is: will you follow the fear?
Will you succumb to fear and embrace a passionless, purposeless life over the fulfilled life you could have, or will you refuse to let it stop you? We tend to give the mind and ego too much control over our thought processes and the actions that result, and fear can easily stop us if the ego’s in control.
If our intuition is at the wheel, fear will fade as we embrace our purpose and keep our creative channel open and flowing.
Plenty of spiritual teachers have told us that the ego – our sense of self, which is separate from our creator – is one main cause of all of our unhappiness, and while it isn’t the sole cause, it does play a role in our unhappiness if we feed it too much.
If you’re constantly unsatisfied with life and you fight change every time it comes your way, you might be stuck in the ego. The good news is that you don’t have to stay there, and you can leave at any time if you’re willing to step outside of it and into territory that’s new and potentially uncomfortable.
This is why so many of us choose to stay in the mind – the territory that lies beyond it is strange and unfamiliar, and we’re afraid to take the leap. In some cases, taking that leap is the last thing we need to do before we find what we’ve been searching for, and when we finally do take it, we’ll be overjoyed at the result.
Our mission will require us to step outside of the ego and transcend its constant influence, and regardless of what some people think, true happiness and fulfillment don’t come from the external. They don’t even come from fulfilling our mission, even though it does feel pretty great.
They come directly from within, and we have to bring them up to the surface unconditionally. We have to be willing to stop seeking happiness in material things, and our effortless joy and upliftment will translate into work that helps others.
It’s our nature to be happy and enjoy life, so we don’t we let ourselves? Why don’t we stop finding the bad in every situation, whether it’s related to our work or not, and try to see the good? I don’t think this is just another way to avoid the bad parts of life – I think it’s a way to recognize that they exist without letting them bring us down.
While there’s a lot of bad in life that we don’t want to ignore, there’s a lot of good that we’ve been ignoring for too long. Let’s give ourselves the full picture instead of trying to ignore the good or the bad, and let’s just exist without requiring specific conditions or circumstances to be happy.
Happiness is right here, and grabbing ahold of it will allow us to approach our mission with more excitement, enthusiasm and willingness. We’re the only ones that stand in the way of our own progress, so let’s get out of our own way and let our joy (and subsequently, our creativity) flow without reservation or restriction.
Let’s make sure we’re in the right frame of mind to create the new world we want to see. With the understanding that our happiness lives within and waits for us to access it, we can stop seeking it in material things and start investing it in our work.
Then, the fun will really begin because we’ll have learned how to work hard and find happiness at the same time. Everyone will benefit, especially us, and we’ll be glad we found our joy within when we look back on this journey with appreciation for what we were able to achieve.
I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
