Unity Transcends All Destruction

In the world today, it can be easy to look at the forces of destruction, anger and hatred, however in every single moment you have a choice as to the energy you feed. Are you going to feed unity, cooperation and harmony, or are you going to feed the other forces mentioned above? This choice comes up every time there is a news story about humans taking the lives of other humans. This unfortunately is not new news. This is currently a part of the human experience, at least until humanity is able to transcend it. And, yes it can be transcended, not by the few, but by the many.

Transcending destruction happens both individually and collectively; it is accomplished by making the choice to feed the forces of unity, love, forgiveness and compassion. Are you going to continue to give into the energy of destruction by adding your two cents to the judgment or hatred or fear that the media continues to stir up? Or, are you going to find a way to discover a peace within yourself, to see beyond labels to move into a space where you can connect with the humanness of each and every fellow person on the planet?

The path to Unity (Universal) consciousness is all about viewing another individual as a Soul on a path, just like you are. What does that mean? It means that no matter how you agree or disagree with the choices and actions of another person, that you are able to reach deep down and to recognize they too are on their journey to Soul sovereignty, to view the role they are playing on the stage of life, and to understand that it is the part they have been programmed to play. Every individual is programmed; programmed by upbringing, belief systems, past life patterns and daily conditioning from various outside influences. You can choose in any moment to accept your programming as your truth, or to discover the truth of who you are as a Soul.

I create unity within myself, my home, and my community by viewing each individual from the Soul perspective.

When you discover the truth of your Soul, you will find that you can much more easily connect with the journey of other individuals. All paths lead to the same destination, and so when you are seeing another person who is sharing beliefs of anger, hatred and fear, your own path to understanding requires that you look beyond their emotional expression, and gain understanding that they are another individual on their path to discover their Soul. Just because their path is different from you own, does not indicate that they will not arrive at the same destination as you will one day.

Much of humanity has been programmed to understand the world through judgment and separation; looking at the ways in which you are different from others around you. This is something that is learned very early on, as it is highly encouraged to embrace your individuality. Yes, individuality is a valuable learning experience, but the path to peace, unity, and true freedom is forged by obtaining a balance of individuality and collectiveness. Collectiveness is accepting your connection with all others, even those whom you have a challenging time seeing any similarity with.

Back in September of this year, a message on Unity was written, and one of the suggestions was to practice being in Unity at least one day per week; Unity Shift Thursdays. Each week, practice looking at the commonalities you have with everyone else you encounter. Are they motivated to keep a roof over their head? Probably so. Do they strive for Self-Confidence? Most likely. Move beyond looking at physical attributes, and into emotional qualities, there will be more commonalities emerge than even you expected.

The only way to change the energy of destruction is to eradicate the energy of hatred, fear and anger. And, the only way to eradicate such energy is through the processes of creation and re-creation. Creating new bonds and connections, re-creating unity within your home and community, sending love, healing and forgiveness outward to all others, and to yourself. Look within and boost up your own forces of creation, love, compassion, empathy, and forgiveness. What you are able to boost up within yourself, you also contribute to the greater whole. It has been said so many times before; “violence begets more violence,” and, “only love conquers all.” These are true statements. Destruction leads to more destruction, and only the forces of creation can neutralize it.

So what can you do to help neutralize the forces of destruction? Find time to look at the creative forces of love, forgiveness, and compassion within yourself. Find time to contemplate, sit quietly or meditate on discovering more of these qualities within you. If you find yourself feeling hatred, fear, anger or similar energies, write about them in your journal, talk about them with a trusted friend, teacher or confidant, but then let them go. Do not publish them or share them publicly, as that public display of fear will only lead to more fear. You do not have to qualify yourself or defend your viewpoint, by doing so you are in assumption that others are against you. This assumption is backed by a subconscious belief of separation.

You can be in truth without being in judgment. You can understand that there are differences in the world, without having those difference be the central focus of your thoughts. Learn to move beyond focusing on differences and bring others together for common goals and causes. Accept that there is more than enough resources to go around; you are not in competition with anyone else for your resources. Stop looking at anyone outside of you as taking away from you; whether that be in taxes, social programs, food or jobs. You are not a victim of other people’s choices, you are only a victim of your decision to feel like a victim.

You can rise above any tough time, you can create a movement of positivity, you can incite wonderful change, and you can be a participant in bringing about equality, peace, joy and love. Do not give up, do not give in. You are capable of great things!

Past Life Patterns – The Monk

This is the description of one of the 16 Past Life Patterns. These patterns were developed by Karen Downing, in order to help you understand how past life experiences affect your life today. Each person carries 3 to 5 past life patterns in varying levels of influence. By understanding your unique mix of patterns, you can more easily build up your strengths and transform your challenges. Past life patterns are the key to uncovering your Soul Mission.

The Monk Description – The Monk feels uncomfortable with living in the material world. If it was possible for them to forgo any connection to material goods and possessions, they would. This comes from many past lives where they lived sequestered away from the rest of the world in a temple, house of worship, nunnery, or other type of religious existence. The Monk feels best about themselves when they are connecting with their belief system. However, because of their past life patterning, the Monk also has a deep fear of angering God.

The Monk is very adept at meditation, prayer and connecting with the Divine. This is more comfortable to them than connecting with the outside world. The Monk may have more difficulties with technology than the average person, and often will not have a TV in their home. If they could live their life without having to use money, they would. Often the Monk is living a life in the now, because there are here to heal their feelings about the material world.

Some of the typical past life experiences of the Monk are: being a nun, priest, rabbi, monk, living in a religious/spiritual temple, or having a religious focused life. If you feel uncomfortable about the material world, have difficulties with violence and anger, or worry about how “good” you are, then you exhibit the Monk pattern. It is important to note that the Monk is not a gender specific term, and describes both male and female experiences as listed above.

Expression of the Monk Pattern in Your Life Now – The Monk is at home in solitude and quiet. They are typically drawn to quiet peaceful activities that further develop their innate connection with the Divine. Much of the mental chatter that the Monk wrestles with focuses on if what they are doing in life is good enough. Even though they feel so at home in their connection with Spirit, a part of them still worries about if they are doing all they can to be “spiritual” enough. Other people would identify the Monk as being insightful, calming, peaceful, wise and generally comforting to be around.

If you express the Monk pattern, you will have to ensure that you get out of your comfort zone and connect with others from time to time. You will have to keep reminding yourself that you are here now to experience life, not to observe it. Learn to switch your focus to “what can I experience today?”

There is nothing more upsetting to the Monk then to witness violence and anger. Whenever they have such an experience, it can stay with them for a very long time. One of the ways that the Monk can learn to cope with upsetting situations, is to remember that each person has a soul plan. When the Monk can look toward the Divine purpose of everything, it will be easier to move beyond deep emotional scars that can be left being from witnessing such acts. The Monk would benefit from reminding themselves that every soul is living in accordance with their own life plan. For certain souls, they could have the experience of violence in their life to use as a catalyst for positive change. It is by remembering this, that the Monk can remain peaceful even during difficult times. Extreme expressions of the Monk pattern can lead to isolationism and escapism.

There are two ways that the Monk theme reveals itself; The Nurturing Monk and the Authoritative Monk. If you resonate with The Monk pattern, you might discover that you can possess qualities of one, or even both, of the ways that The Monk is expressed. Often in one area of life you can feel one way, and in another area of life feel another way.

The Nurturing Monk – The Nurturing Monk focuses on compassion, care and concern for others. This comes from a deeply held belief that putting others above oneself is more Godly. And, while there are certainly times when caring for a loved one is appropriate, the Nurturing Monk can have a tendency to put more time and energy into caring for strangers than for themselves. If you are someone who feels guilty about doing things for yourself, or fears being judged as selfish, then you showcase the past life pattern of the Nurturing Monk. The Nurturing Monk’s biggest lesson is to learn to balance the time and energy spent on others with the time and energy they spend on themselves. The Nurturing Monk will eventually come to the realization that they cannot help others as much as they would like to when their own energy is taxed and drained.

The Authoritative Monk – The Authoritative Monk feels a need to share their quest for spirituality with others. They can become an expert in a certain aspects of their personal belief system, but they do have to watch for becoming too “preachy”, or that they do not allow for evolution in their own belief system over time. The Authoritative Monk also has a deep down fear of God or whatever Higher Power they believe in, and because they base their worthiness on the ability to please this Higher Power, they have to watch for the tendency to put stress and pressure on how they showcase their belief system. If you are someone who worries about angering God, or needs to feel that you are consistently taking “right” action, then you showcase the past life pattern of the Authoritative Monk. The Authoritative Monk’s biggest lesson is to come to peace with who they are, and to not try to convince others how “good” or “holy” they are.

Past Life Pattern Breakdown:

  • Worries about angering God
  • Is uncomfortable with the material world
  • Enjoys quiet and solitude
  • Is deeply scarred by witnessing violence

Affirmation – “I am good, and worthy of God’s love no matter what I do. There is nothing unGodly about utilizing modern tools such as money or technology.”

Astrology Sign of Libra

Ruling Planet – Venus

Corresponding House – 7th House

Crystals – Kunzite, Lepidolite, Merlinite & Ametrine

Affirmation – “I find balance between the energy of myself and assisting others. I flow with the energy of what is most needed in the Now.”

Personality Traits – Libras can have a great deal of compassion for others, and that is why they often feel most comfortable in a relationship. It is this need to do for others that can also make them appear wishy-washy or unable to make up their mind, but this is only driven by a feeling of wanting to make sure that others’ needs are met. The challenge for a Libra is to realize that their needs are equal to the needs of others, and that it is okay to ask for what they need and want in life.

In a Relationship – Libras make very caring and attentive partners, but be sure that you don’t take them for granted. When you ask Libras to give, but they don’t get anything in return (whether they actually ask for help or not), this can cause them to become jaded, frustrated and angry. Libras are best with a sign that has an opinion, but is also open-minded. Libras love to have discussions on many issues, but they seek fairness within that (and any) conversation dynamic.

Spiritual Health – When Libras do something they love, their world is in balance. Libras tend to have spiritual beliefs that support their life experiences. Of any sign, they are most likely to use logic to support their spiritual beliefs. Libra will hold onto a belief as long as they feel it fairly represents their vision of the world.

Emotional Health – Libras need to take quiet time for themselves. This can be quite a challenge for them, especially if they feel like they have too many responsibilities to others. When Libras don’t take time to relax and have quiet, they will be prone to illness.

Mental Health – Libras think that they have an influence on everything around them. This is not in a egoistical way, but done in a way where they somehow feel like they have a responsibility to everyone and everything in their life. Libras understand that there are things going on in the outside world, but whenever something happens, Libras are first to think how they did something wrong/good to make this happen. Libras can counteract this energy by looking at their world from a more detached perspective.

Physical Health – Libras can have problems with their elimination system and endocrine glands. These body systems are most sensitive when the energy is in a state of imbalance in some way. Elimination problems arise when giving/receiving is out of balance, and the body will represent this imbalance by having loose bowels (giving too much of one’s energy) or constipation (receiving too much from others). Imbalances in specific areas can show up as problems with the corresponding endocrine gland.

Relationship with Food – Libra doesn’t know what they want, as this often can change from day to day. Sometimes they will even cook something for dinner only to find that they don’t want to eat it any more. Libra individuals like to cook for others, and making food is one way for them to express love. But, don’t assume that they always want to cook, as it can also become a chore for them. Don’t ever ask a Libra want they want to eat, you will always get the same answer: “I don’t know. What do you want?”
