Pat: Andrew Cohen is an insightful, refreshing spiritual writer whom I’ve been reading for at least a decade. This current article may at first jolt you, but he writes of the transformation of conscious that is now occurring in these “shifting” times.
As the vibrations raise, the light continues its surge, and the higher dimensions are in the process of manifesting. Another way to describe this “shift” is to say that we are awakening to the Quantum / Source that we are and have always been and will always be — the Quantum /Source that is everywhere, every moment, and out-expresses as every particle of cosmos and creation.
We are truly waking up — the Light manifesting from that “deep, still, depth dimension” that lies beyond the Emptiness or “No-thing-ness” that we become aware of if we burrow/explore/meditate deep enough into and past the cells and particles and mindstuff that make up — at least the “surface” self of — who we are. We break into the precious jewel that lies in the ‘invisible’ part of us: our soul, spirit, quantum, divine spark, light of God . . . or, let’s call it as it is . . . the Source within that is manifesting as . . . us.
And I believe this is what Andrew Cohen is getting at. We’ve come to a point in our spiritual evolution where the blinders are coming off and humanity is waking up to the “God” propaganda, memes, programs, etc. that the controllers have put out there to, well, “control” humanity through the ages.
(Overheard at various annual board meetings of the cabal during the past several thousand years: “Let’s keep ‘God’ Up and Out and Far Away. Let’s create an “endless chasm” between ‘God’ and ‘lowly human’. That’ll keep the masses in their place — oblivious to the power within them!”)
Those controlling programs are the “gods” now falling from the sky.
When God Falls Out of the Sky
June 17, 2012 | Andrew Cohen
In the second decade of the 21st century, God is no longer “up there” ready to save us. Until very recently, that creative principle was something that we would ask for help from. But I believe we have reached a time in history when God, which I would describe as the energy and intelligence that initiated the creative process, is now completely dependent upon us—upon sentient life forms that have evolved to the point where they are blessed with the extraordinary gifts of complex cognition, self-awareness, and freedom of choice. At this critical juncture, our own future and the future of our planet will be determined by the conscious choices that we human beings make, rather than by the whim of a higher power or according to some predestined plan.
The mythical god has fallen out of the sky, and as more and more of us awaken to this fact, it begins to dawn on us that the future is literally in our own hands. Our power and our impact have never been greater. It has even been suggested that at this point in the evolutionary process, what Darwin called “natural selection” has been superseded by human choice. The decisions that we are making, either consciously or unconsciously, have become the primary force directing our planet’s future. Indeed, we have become gods.
In pre-modern times, gods were revered as supreme beings who had the power to create and destroy life. Who has that power now? We do. We can create life in a laboratory. And we have at our fingertips the power to destroy all life on earth. Our unique capacity to innovate and our drive to create have brought forth unimagined potentials and simultaneously have carried us to the very brink of self-destruction. Because our technological development has outpaced our spiritual and moral development, we find ourselves in an environmental crisis of unparalleled proportions. And there is nobody “up there” who can help us now, no supernatural power guiding everything from on high, no God that is separate from our very own consciousness.
For the human being who begins to realize this, the implications on a personal level are profound and overwhelming. When we awaken to the infinite panorama of evolution, in fact, we realize ourselves to be nothing less than the very leading edge of a fourteen billion year cosmic process. A cosmic process that gave rise to the vast matter and energy that created galaxies, planets, and stars. That process created the conditions that made it possible for biological life to emerge around four billion years ago. And then, from biological life, 200,000 years ago mind burst forth as the dramatic beginning of human consciousness and culture. Now, the energy and intelligence that initiated that process and has been driving it all along is dependent upon you and me. Indeed, our responsibility for where evolution is going, at the level of our shared culture, is much bigger than most of us are aware of. We tend to not be very conscious of the enormous context in which our own choices and actions are occurring.
For the mature human being in the second decade of the twenty-first century, this is what I see as being the ultimate purpose of higher spiritual development in a nutshell: to liberate the miraculous power of human choice from being unconsciously trapped in a cultural epidemic of narcissism, materialism, and existential apathy. Our moral, spiritual, and cultural evolution—if not our very survival—really do depend on it. God has indeed fallen out of the sky. Now it’s up to each and every one of us to realize that the energy and intelligence that created the universe and is creating it right now is depending upon us to take the next step.
