Dog or Do-Do Bird? How are we adapting today?

October 21st, 2011

This morning as I opened two emails I was struck by synchronicity at work.

First was Dr. Deb Betterly’s monthly newsletter where she talks about “struggle”: Struggle is trying to rearrange the world so that it aligns with the way you think it should be. It is the greatest source of unhappinessin our world today. This happens when you focus on what you perceive you don’t have, instead of embracing what you do have.

Then, Mary Morrisey’s daily meditation begins with “Be in harmony with your good.” She expanded the thought with a reference to evolutionary biology proving that it is always the highly cooperative species, not the highly competitive, that survive dramatic shifts.” Her reminder was that we contribute to the good when we are in harmony with and demonstrate it.

So, by example, we still have the wolf among us, but the way of the do-do bird is long gone. The gray wolf was so flexible in an evolutionary sense that it morphed into a species we call “domestic dog”, beginning as far back at least as 7,000 BC (some say 30,000 BC). And its offspring are some of our prized pets today. Not only did it survive in the wild, but the wolf’s legacy was learning how to adapt to the rest of the planet and survive for centuries into the future.

When we (humans) lift our consciousness, there is a raising of the consciousness of the whole world, a/k/a “mass consciousness”. The challenge is – what aspect of consciousness are we raising — the good, or the not-so-good? The universe doesn’t discipher. It just gives us what we’re thinking, and by our choice now we have to live with it, until we can change it again. First it’s a thought — then it’s a thing. Simple, but not easy.

Another example — Our planet is experiencing some of the most violent course corrections we can recollect: tsunami, hurricane, tornado, fire…the list is literally battering humanity in recent years. So, it’s easy to understand the comparison of struggle/stress to paddling upstream in a hurricane current. We’ve seen not only the coming of the wave, but the effects of the withdrawal current.

So if you’re in the middle of a harrowing moment and don’t know how you got there, do think back to your original choices. Which one did you make? Did it get your where you wanted to go? And how is that working for you?

Remember that by being in harmony with your good, and in harmony with life, you have the opportunity each moment of every hour of your being to make a choice that will let you float upstream rather than struggle. It’s your choice. You can choose to be in sync with your own heart spirit and that of the natural laws of our universe. Are you allowing yourself to adapt and grow? Or not…and how’s that working for you today?
