The New Year From a Spiritual Perspective

I keep hearing how tough it is on people as they forge into a life of greater awareness. If people knew what I went through to share what I do, and do the work that I do to serve humanity, they would understand that pain is inconsequential.
We have all come out of a tough year. It was to have us all witness the incredible deluge of ignorance and control we were once immersed in. If we are not falling for it any more, that is a gauge of our own spiritual growth. If we find those who are still immersed in it, we can have compassion for them and show kindness and wait for them. There is no need to attack them or try to educate them. They will awaken through osmosis.
Part of being immersed in old consciousness was perceiving everything and everyone was static. But no. We are all growing, changing and emerging at an alarming rate. If some seem stuck, they will not be afforded the luxury of their old consciousness for long. Let them have it while they can. Even with all the fear, bickering and competition, it is teaching them to be spiritually aware.
Just as toys teach necessary skills as children play. Their crutches and pet concerns will be taken from them soon enough. It is more compassionate to allow them their own process instead of thrusting ours upon them.
The struggle doesn’t validate you. It will fall away. The incredible satisfaction of knowing you are a part of the evolution of mankind from ignorant brute to spiritual giant is what matters. Focusing on the struggle is romanticizing the brute instead of appreciating the freedom that is being realized.
Using the struggle to contrast the freedom only serves to keep one immersed in the worlds of duality. Our wings of awareness takes us to a much more expansive realization; if we allow it.
