Modern Day Initiations = the making of a beginnning in the now
The Unintentional Global Initiation
In Part One and Two, I offered the lense of Modern Day Initiations as a framework; a framework growing from our cultural history and ancestry in which to view and experience the events of our lives. MDI may be intentional or grow from unintentional events into intentional initiations. Walking through this MDI threshold may occur on a personal, group, and/or global level. In Part Three, we will explore the journey of the unintentional towards initiation on a global level.
Reclaiming Our Global Initiations
When experiencing our daily lives in the present world, one does not need to look far for wounding global events. Though we may choose consciously or unconsciously to ignore it, there are major widespread catastrophic traumas happening on a planetary scale right now.
From massive ecological degredation to rampant political misappropriations, virtually all areas of our global lives have been messed with, taken advantage of, and left for someone else to clean up; health, education, government, energy, business, food, the environment, the economy, media, religion, culture. It is understandable if everyone on Planet Earth right now feels like a victim to the powers that be. It is understandable if everyone on Planet Earth right now feels, at times, enough despair and grief to keep them hiding in a cave for an unforseen amount of time.
Waking Up To Our Choice
In fact, a lot of people do. We hide in the cave of our homes, our jobs, our favorite t.v. show, or who’s twerking now. We hide in our dramas, our judgements, our devices, and our consumerism. We would rather wait in line for a bargain at Target than wait in line to protest the Keystone XL Pipeline. We hide because that is the best option provided for us. It is too overwhelming to be conscious of it all and still live a “happy” life.
Many are not aware that this is actually a choice we all make. We choose to go dormant. We may not even be aware that this is the reality until something shifts us, moves us, wakes us up to our inherent power to chose our reality.
This reality is a choice? But, you say, these things that are happening are awful and real and no personal choice I make will change that! Therein lies the answer.
Embracing Our Collective Power
As we allow what is to be, and accept what we can and cannot change, we begin to see our part in the unfolding story. As we awaken to what it means to be a global initiate in the evolving chapters of humankind, we see that we are more powerful than we had ever imagined ourselves to be.
When we consciously embrace our global Modern Day Initiations as such, we open up doorways to our deepest selves. The part of our selves that wants to effect change on behalf of our planetary family. The part of our selves that invents a carbon neutral energy source or the part that becomes a holistic health practitioner or an innovative educator, or a conscious politician, or a teacher of bioremediation, or a cultural creative. The part of ourselves that joins others across the globe in prayers for peace.
By turning towards, opening and coming through the thresholds of global initiation, we envision a future worthy of our children and our children’s children. Better than that, we know that it is possible by the efforts we make everyday in concert with other global initiates. We are now beginning to fully know our collective power and to utilize it for the healing of our
