Pulling Back the Curtain of Oz

As I start to think about my upcoming February Monthly Visions one main theme is churning around in my mind: Truth Vs Theatre. If we have had one major theme playing out this year, particularly on the global stage, it is this one. This year has had a heaviness to it, which may have left some questioning have we truly 'made it'? Have we really chosen the high road of mass awakening and global transformation, the more positive of the two remaining forks in the road? Indeed we have, but before mass awakening and global transformation must come truth, and truth is what we are collectively finding ourselves neck deep in right now.

The heaviness is a result of the megatonnes of truth, or rather deceptions and injustices that were disguised as truth, that are pouring out of every personal, social, political, government, military, corporate, media, pharmaceutical, religious, historical etc nook, cranny and crevice right now, spilling out for all to see and feel – and a lot of it is not pleasant. It can be downright ugly, disturbing, uncomfortable and challenging to our personal reality comfort zones. Yet if we truly want what we say we want – a transformed world – then this heightened exposure to the current reality that surrounds us is an essential part of that process. Shifting to a higher level of consciousness involves being awake and aware to everything that is playing a part in creating our reality, to everything that is being portrayed to us as reality. We cannot change what we are unaware of. We cannot step into our power if we are blind to the ways in which power has been taken from us. Pulling back the curtain of OZ, or the veil of illusion, is not for the faint-hearted.

I’ll have more to say about this in the Monthly Visions, but for now I’m being reminded of a piece I wrote back in 2004 ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. It seems very timely right now.


If this were a reality TV show…

Imagine that beings on some far off planet are watching a daily reality TV show featuring us and the events taking place on Planet Earth today. Our show provides them with entertainment and amusement, it makes them laugh and cry, and sometimes they hold their heads in disbelief at the state we have got ourselves into. They are placing bets in bars all over the galaxy. Are we going to realize that the Emperor has no clothes on? Or are we going to band together and confront him about the truth, and bring down the rascal tailors? Are we going to turn this train around just before we crash, or are we headed towards complete self-destruction?

Whatever the outcome of this particular fairy tale-cum-planetary reality show we are living, we are each responsible for the outcome. We can stay in denial or we can all do something to help put our society back on track so that we can redeem ourselves from this ridiculous state of affairs. It only takes one person to say to the next, “Hey, that guy’s naked!”

It is time to say to the emperor and his corrupt crew of tailors, “The tribe has spoken, it’s time to go.”

Wow Dana, I'm right in the throes of seeing an untruth and having to confront it. It involves stealing money from a group I attend and I have been enrolled as the person to deal with it. Have prayed, meditated, and sought counsel and listened to the "culprit" tell one lie after the other. Tried the 5thD approach three times to no avail--so met him back in the 3rd and, believe it or not, confronting it head on and mincing no words has made me feel better. Don't much like visiting the 3rdD but human kind has far to go yet. Your words are very comforting this a.m. In LoveLight, Sandra :)

What is more effective?

Waking up from the dream or trying to make it a better dream?

If we make it a better dream, we're still dreaming. Don't we want to wake up?

Wake up from the dream and allow a conscious reality to be our daily experience.
