28th August 2013: North Node and Saturn in Scorpio

New Laws For a New Age

With the North Node approaching Saturn in Scorpio, the domain of Pluto, laws are changing all around us, and I don’t mean the ones we’ve made up. These are universal laws, those which govern the unfoldment of our lives and the evolution of the planet: not the ‘shoulds’ and ‘oughts’ of the human realm but the possibilities and potential of the infinite one in which everything past, present and future, has and will come to pass.

Our laws and the universal variety are so very different. The former are all about ‘little me’ and how I think life should be. The latter are all about life and how it actually is. They take account of other dimensions and data we could never comprehend with our tiny minds. They operate in the formless worlds alongside those of form, connecting everything – past, present, future and dimensions outside of time – into an intricate web of cause and effect the likes of which we could never wholly unravel no matter how long we lived.

We don’t make the laws under which we actually live. We may not even understand them, but we are subject to them nonetheless. And now, at this time of massive energetic shift, they are becoming more and more apparent in our dimension. In effect the process of karmic re-balancing is intensifying its impact upon the earth plane in order to bring about a deeper cleansing, the likes of which we’ve not experienced before.

Whilst we tend to view our own karmic experience through very personal eyes – I did this and that happened which is either a) good because that’s what I wanted or b) bad because it wasn’t fair or didn’t work out the right way – what we don’t take account of is the millions of times other people have done the same thing, adding their energy to the vast pool of karmic ‘goo’ from which we all draw as members of the human race. Karma is not a solely personal affair and we are not subject to solely personal laws.

We could be the most perfect, wise and compassionate person on the planet, but that doesn’t guarantee an easy ride because it’s not all about us here and now, it’s also about us in other realms and dimensions, it’s about everyone else throughout time and space who have contributed to the collective karmic well from which we draw. It’s about the vibration of the energy field of the planet at the time of our actions and being part of a collective consciousness, which shares its karma as much as living its own personal bit of it.

It is this collective karma which we will all encounter more directly from here on in. As the Age of Aquarius anchors itself on the earth plane we are more and more influenced by and influencing the collective consciousness of the planet. The karmic consequences of our actions are felt now not only by us but by everyone, just as we are experiencing the consequences of actions not undertaken by ourselves. It sounds a bit alarming I know, but the heavens do not speak of disempowerment or despair as a result of these shifts.

Instead they point to the potential of such a time, because now we can change the results of other people’s behaviour just as they can influence the results of ours. Enough people acting from a place of love can negate the consequences of unloving acts, just as enough people acting from a place of hate can enhance them. Things just aren’t as personal as they used to be and we’re going to have to get used to that and decide exactly what it is we want to be contributing to the collective karmic pot, because what goes in is what will come out on a much grander scale.

Think of it like a pot of soup. We each add our favourite ingredient to it, but if lots of people have a particular penchant for onions, the soup will taste very oniony, even though other people have added a carrot here or a parsnip there. So when we share the soup it will taste of onions, whatever we’ve put into it. Those who threw in a potato or some cabbage may be thinking ‘Well this isn’t fair. I didn’t sign up for onion soup!’, but what they may fail to grasp is that they didn’t put in enough of their ingredient of choice to make a difference in the face of all those onions! This is how the karmic field is beginning to function now. If we want to draw from it positivity, peace, harmony, healing, honesty, wisdom, then that’s exactly what we need to be putting into it and in big amounts, because there are plenty of people out there putting in all kinds of very strong metaphorical onions with the capacity to over-power our contribution!

We can no longer occupy ourselves with only our little corner of the universe, imposing our own egoic laws and complaining when they don’t follow through how we think they should. The best, most compassionate deeds in the world will offer up little in the way of positive karma if the collective field is all out of positivity. Just as the most heinous deeds will have nowhere to anchor themselves in that field if it’s already full to bursting with the karmic consequences of collective hope and love.

This shift in the law, from personal to collective, places great responsibility at the feet of all who recognise it, because it makes us incumbent to step up and contribute the best ingredients we can muster to the karmic pot. It doesn’t mean we must be forever sickeningly positive and smiley when we’re actually dying inside. That’s just dishonest and all we’re adding is more deception into a world already full of it. What we need to be adding is honesty and openness, authenticity and acceptance. Compassion, for ourselves and others, and all the wise actions and choices we can muster. Because as we throw them in we will be creating a well of all those qualities from which we can all draw, today, tomorrow, and for many years to come…

Have a good day everyone.

It seems we're always in the soup, one way or another :2funny

Could I have a sandwich to go with that?

Sarah, thank you for reminding us again so eloquently of our responsibility to "the whole" which is really being willing to manage "the one". This is a concept difficult to understand with "the mind" but yet your gifted way with words has allowed me to feel, with all of me, the truth of this enlightenment.

I personally will be adding chocolate chip peanut butter cookies to the mix, today, so that should be interesting ... Of course I like to eat dessert first ... with a little coffee ... and I agree with Shapeshifter, soup really is better with a sandwich! Lol! :smitten:

I love you all and love the "soup" analogy. I'm for dessert first too, warm gooey dark chocolate anything! Boy, what an exciting time--love the unity conciousness--our work feels like it has just begun. But at least now we know what we have to do, instead of swimming around in the soup--we can enjoy the flavors. Wow, what a journey this is. :smitten:

Perfect. Exactly what I was thinking about this morn. Thank you.

shapeshifter 28th August 2013 12:25 pm

Dark and light hot chocolate soup....
What a tasteful way to merge polarities ;D

So true and exciting!! With all the good 'ingredients' you mentioned (which we will contribute by giving the best we can on a daily basis); we will eventually overcome the atrocities/'onions' and we will live in peace/harmony and joy/bliss!!

I've been in the soup today, and are we ever mixing it up! Sarah, you always get it right.

I'm personally big on onions and garlic. Chocolate soup really sounds quite heavenly.

shapeshifter, I think we're already in the sandwich :2funny

Skyhawke, these words of yours get straight to the heart of it. Thank you!

Yep! I think you're right Sandra. This is the real mission now, not just the prelude or warm ups :police:

And to everyone.. all the comments here about soup and sandwiches, cookies and desserts, chocolate, even parsnips and onions, making me very hungry... I am also a great lover of onions and garlic Kay, but I'd probably pass them over for chocolate soup... :smitten:
