It IS an Apocalypse!! © 2015 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC
An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning "uncovering"), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden. Wikipedia
We are living in an exciting time. It IS an apocalypse! We have been experiencing a 'lifting of the veil' for some years now. But it's not something to be feared, but rejoiced.
Remember Dec. 21st, 2012? Most folk assumed that the end of the Mayan calendar meant the end of the world. Hollywood made a block buster movie depicting massive destruction.
It actually was the completion of a cycle, and a beginning of a new one. But when you view things from the perspective of your body/personality, all endings mean death. Your body/personality can comprehend the future, so it's pretty certain it's gonna die.
Humanity's been interpreting endings and beginnings through the lenses of doom and gloom for thousands of years. It makes me realize that the story of Adam and Eve in the Bible was the distortion of the story of incarnation and evolution. Shifting to a new level of knowledge and awareness does *not* mean you're banished from the Garden. It just means you see things with greater clarity. Which may be uncomfortable at first.
If you are clinging to the old ways of doing things, it's going to be really painful to change.
What's really happening is that Consciousness is coming more into form. We are experiencing it as increased energy. Body/personalities may feel that *they* are ascending, as they're feeling a higher vibration. Consciousness is feeling it as becoming more embodied.
It's like unlocking the next level in a video game. Suddenly you have access to greater knowledge (as Consciousness *is* the Cosmic Internet), an inner wisdom, perhaps increased extra sensitive perception.
Greater light in the world reveals the shadow side in us all. It *is* a revelation: collectively, prejudice, bigotry, racism, discrimination, sexism, are rising to the surface to be cleared. If you still believe the old paradigm is reality, you're going to be freaking out as it disintegrates. Your personal reality will be crumbling.
It's going to be more extreme, those folks are going to yell extra loud, as it's in the process of dying.
We ARE Consciousness. We *ALL* are Consciousness. Even the yellers. Our physical forms are just denser energy that we've created as our vehicle in this full immersion interactive game.
WE never die. Our body/personalities reorganize, reconfigure, transmute eventually into dust.
Here's a clue to discerning whether you are viewing things as your expanded Consciousness or as your habitual body/personality: if it's limited, black or white, fearful, survival oriented or negative about change, it's your body personality. If it's hopeful, optimistic, amused, excited about possibilities, imaging unlimited potential, it's you as Consciousness.
Imagine rereading the Book of Revelation as an exciting document! If you removed any reference to sin (the original Aramaic interpretation of 'sin' was an archery term meaning 'missing the mark), or eternal death or damnation (impossible when you realize that we all immortal as Infinite Beings), the whole Bible becomes a story about mankind's evolution towards greater embodiment as Consciousness.
An apocalypse is a good thing. Rejoice in it!
