Darkness is the absence of light, hate the absence of love, ignorance the absence of wisdom. On the other hand, light is not the absence of darkness, love is not the absence of hate, wisdom not the absence of ignorance. Light, love and wisdom are their own self-existing forces.
In Nature, stillness and motion are apparent dualities, yet neither can exist independently because they are relative to one another. Nature's dualities are neutral.
In human society, polarities such as hatred and love are charged with emotional energies. They are mutually exclusive and cannot exist simultaneously. Whereas the dualities of Nature exist in balance, the polarities of Humankind exist in opposition and create imbalance and havoc. As a biological creature, homo sapiens is part of Nature, yet has separated itself from Nature.
While Nature does not have objectives or will as we know them, it acts on principles set by its Source — such as design, organization, expansion, experimentation, diversification, evolution from simple to complex organisms, and stasis or balance.
Nature's purpose is to efficiently create habitation and objects of observation for the creative field. The idea of Man in the mind/heart of Source is a sentient creature capable of acting by free will choice as its conscious co-creator and emanating the presence of pure consciousness to all of creation. Those who so emanate expand Presence where there was absence.
We are living at a time when new energies are being supplied to the Earth, giving an opportunity to fulfill the original design. Some say the energies do all the work. I feel that, without striving, each person can tune themselves to the higher, more complex frequencies coming in. This is not an intellectual exercise only, but embodied by selfless acts of light, love and wisdom, in service to the Whole.
Comments from the Collective Evolution Discussion Group
From Marcel B:
An abundance of wisdom here Gary R. Smith. Thank you for sharing such a profound message. It has personally taken me a long time to concede the duality of all things and it is still a work in progress. From my perspective, embracing that there is no good/bad or right/wrong in this world we call Earth is perhaps one of the greatest messages we can convey to others to transition from separation back to oneness. The embracing of duality consciousness at its core is the one thing that has led me to a greater understanding about myself, my actions, my reactions, my judgements, but most of all my perception of reality. In fact, I believe it has changed my perception of all things more than any other concept.
I don't share the perspective that the Idea of Man was interrupted or fallen from anything. The current and new consciousness simply exists because another form was made available. Everything is inside of something else and the spiral up and down of creation is only facilitated by those things we perceive have fallen, but they simply contracted and and then expanded.
"without striving, each person can tune themselves to the higher, more complex frequencies coming in." Very true. All beings receive all frequencies at the same rate and it is only the core filters and our perception that allows one person to interpret that energy differently than another. But it is all the same incoming.
And nature has many functions, many which you mention. Another is to hold a frequency which humanity can be receptive to while tuning in. As we ascend in our capacity to vibrate at higher frequencies, nature becomes a conduit to change the core vibrational state to even higher levels. We then start to communicate with nature in ways we never have before. And all it takes is an openness and transparency to meld with Gaia in all her beauty. You walk through a forest and you welcome nature into your heart not as you think it should be, but how it is, in all its majesty. Communication with nature will be very different moving forward once humanity realizes what Gaia really is, a part of us and our biological and spiritual being. Gaia is as much a part of humanity as our cells and DNA are to our physical existence.
The more we embrace that the Earth is a test of energy, not humanity, the more we change our perception to what is, without having to define it, label it or judge it.
G - Do you see then a direction of humankind's spiritual evolution?
MB - Absolutely. But that is only because of the place in which we currently reside on the time space continuum. We have to be careful with the term spiritual evolution because there is an interpretation by many that it means better, higher or more advanced and that is not the case. In fact, it can be stated that humanity regressed spiritually from what we were well before the dynastic age, especially from more complex understandings of spirituality to the simple comprehension we have today.
G - I remember your saying to the effect there is nothing for us to do to ascend in our capacity to vibrate at higher frequencies. You mentioned there are certain types of breathing which can be helpful. I found some web pages about breathing deeply from the diaphragm, exhaling very slowly and pressing the diaphragm to the spine. This activates the Vagus nerve and has other health benefits as well. I'll post about it.
MB - Well perhaps I should clarify that there is nothing for us to do except what we are doing now. Meaning there is no amount of deep breathing, yoga or meditation that will allow us to ascend at a rate higher than consciousness will allow. There are thousands of people that take yoga and meditate that have absolutely no awareness of what those things do, their original purpose or how to apply them to oneness. Yet they are still active exercises in self-improvement which is commendable, but not necessary. The second we think we must improve ourselves from an undesired state, is the same second we must admit that there is something wrong with us, which is a self-defeating behavior on its own. Very deep breathing can allow a greater exploration of what we are but we must still attain the frequency that gets us to that point and that takes practice. I personally do textured breathing (narrowing the passage of air flow) through the nose no less than 15s in and out starting from the diaphragm up to the chest and then reversing on the exhale. Some find it difficult to inhale for 15s or more but it comes in time once we learn to narrow the air flow more. The beauty comes from noticing the stillness in between the inhale and exhale. In that stillness comes a wealth of information and it is different for both the inhale and exhale since each is a different perception of consciousness. So what you breathe in can carry different aspects of consciousness than what you breathe out and you will notice it over time.
I always enjoy your insight Gary R. Smith and you can reprint any of my comments, with or without my name as you see fit.
G - Marcel, how do you feel regarding the general theme that entities and/or forces in the seen and unseen have deliberately held humankind back from living to its fullest potential, so they can feed on our energies of emotional trauma and distress?
MB - Well that rabbit hole is very deep. Most that persist on the theme of entities, aliens and hidden forces guiding humanity towards emotional trauma and distress, usually dive deep down into a crater of conspiracy, limitation, opposition, antagonism, anger, hatred, etc, etc, especially if they cannot pop out of that crater to see the divinity behind it. They thrive on statements such as "if only they didn't exist, we would be free" or "if only they didn't control us, we would be so much more than what we are" which only demonstrates an ignorance of their role on planet Earth. Yes, they exist. Yes, there are and have been beings which feed on the emotional trauma of humans. Yes, they have facilitated limitation. And guess what? It was all invited so it doesn't really matter. It was all our own creation.
We can dwell on who did what, where and how and as long as we feel we must emphasize that part of our existence through negativity without wisdom, then we stay stuck in an endless loop of limitation. Most would likely be in a state of shock, awe and denial if they discovered the role these entities had, especially in the past 5000 years on Earth, the Moon and other planets within our solar system.
We are where we are today, in part, because of the assistance of these beings that thrust us into a vibrational state which changed our abilities via our DNA, changing the receiver/transmitter relationship so only a fraction of frequencies could be discerned. If not for this, the contrast moving forward would not be what it is. Creative source, God, the Master Architect of all that is requires a system of antagonism to oppose what are the forces that lead humanity to realize its full divinity. It's all a game from density back to light and there are many entities along the way who assist with this process, but all are invited, all are expected and all are a part of the game. So if we must look for what took place deliberately, we can only look at ourselves and if we feel we must look outside of ourselves, then we have lost touch with what is the game and taken it far too seriously.
