Shifting Paradigms

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

The state of affairs on our planet makes it obvious that we’re in the midst of a transformative paradigm shift from an era of darkness and elite domination to one of unity, prosperity and progress on behalf of the common man.

It’s clear that things are being shaken up on the world stage as a part of our continual shift from one collective state of awareness to another, and it’s also clear that we need to come together to steer this shift in a positive direction. Beyond everything that’s happening now, a paradigm shift has been evident for decades.

Even in the 60s and 70s when consciousness reached new heights, it was clear that things were changing for the better. Even though most of the conscious hippies from that generation haven’t yet (or never did) see such changes, the chaos we’re experiencing right now makes it clear that things aren’t going to stay the same.

The rapid growth rate of our technology is staggering, and at this pace, we could have technology in our lifetime that we wouldn’t expect to see for ages. If we band together to make real, lasting change, we can take late comedian Bill Hicks’ advice and use the impressive missile-launching technology we’ve built to “shoot food at hungry people”. (1)

Even if you don’t prefer to look at our evolution from a spiritual perspective, we’re entering the future every day with the technological leaps we continue to make.

Our evolution is undeniable, and the paradigm shift we’re experiencing is leading us to a positive future in a way that exposes and uproots everything rooted in darkness and self-service. This, in my opinion, is causing the turmoil we currently experience, and tyranny is being exposed and brought down as I write this.

A growing number of people have become aware that our society isn’t functioning sustainably, and as they do, they awaken others to the injustice that’s been imposed onto the many by the few. People who understand the immense damage we’ve done to the environment are taking a stand against the corporate plunderers who have dollar signs in their eyes instead of love in their hearts.

In a growing number of countries, revolutions are starting up that put international attention on their people’s readiness to have a voice. The United States; Canada; Russia; Brazil; and Turkey (and plenty more countries) are dealing with increased protest and pressure from their people to start working in our favor or relinquish their power.

This time, we don’t just see hippies in the US protesting the Vietnam War. Now, a growing and focused group of intelligent and conscious people from all different countries is putting the pressure on our governments and letting them know that we’re aware of their control and ready to shift beyond it into harmony and sustainability.

Our ongoing paradigm shift is affecting the minds and hearts of millions of people who see visions of a positive, harmonious future and feel inspired to bring that future about. A shift of the ages is happening right now, and it’s bringing about awareness and activism on a massive scale as we experience chaos that seems unending.

The chaos is a necessary “birthing pain” if you will, and it can serve as a motivating factor in our establishment of a new way of living and being that leaves no man, woman or child behind.

Beyond this article, is there any material on the internet about our ongoing paradigm shift? Because of the rising consciousness and the desire to spread the knowledge a conscious seeker gains, absolutely. First, the Oracle Institute.org tells us about the many things that point to a potent social and spiritual shift.

“When one examines the various phases of humanity’s philosophical, scientific, and moral development, it is evident that religion has been used to both help shape and also decimate societies. In fact, one could easily make the argument that religious clashes are the key element to every cultural collapse and resulting paradigm shift. No wonder that politicians and religious leaders have been parasitically entwined throughout recorded history.”

“Currently, we once again are experiencing world-wide tension due to religious conflict, particularly among the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In addition, more and more people are adopting New Age theosophies, pluralistic approaches to God that involve the study of all traditions, including the esoteric paths of the five primary religions. Add to this spiritual turbulence, global economic competition and a sophisticated communications network, and the result is an unprecedented clash of cultures and belief systems.

“In sum, we have all the makings of a major paradigm shift. And philosophers all over the world are discussing what this next paradigm will look like.” (2)

Religion could be positive for humanity’s development were it not for the censorship of genuine spiritual truth in favor of dogma and control on the part of self-serving “leaders” of our past, and I think that in the near future, the most popular religions will either collapse or merge in harmony.

The Oracle Institute mentioned that people are becoming interested in the “esoteric paths of the five primary religions” and this could lead to a unity of those major religions in a way that’d include the beliefs and spirituality of everyone. Or it could lead to their collapse and a completely undistorted view of God and spirituality being cultivated anyway.

Despite the blood that’s been spilled pettily in the name of religion, I think that a new paradigm entails spiritual unity instead of spiritual division. It has to happen somehow, and this takes us back to the chaos we experience being a necessary shakeup in preparation for something better.

Right now, we have people like Pope Francis who seem interested in cleaning up their religious institutions and presenting their faith in an accepting and unbiased way that more people can get behind. Religion, while rightly associated with control, suppression and war, is transforming along with everything else.

Want to Know Info.com tells us about the qualities of our current paradigm that have been exacerbated by the powers that were to keep us distracted and unaware.

“Together, we are creating a new paradigm on Earth. Yet in order to give meaningful suggestions to further support this, we first need to speak candidly about the old paradigm. It appears that there are factions within the world’s power elite which still desire to exert as much control as possible over the world. Their primary means for establishing control are through promoting fear, secrecy, and polarization, and through distracting people from their deeper purpose in life. When these factions gain greater power and control, our freedoms and liberties are increasingly taken away, sometimes without our even realizing it.

“Fear is used as a powerful tool of control by these factions of the global elite. “The terrorists want to kill us all. Your job, home, and retirement are no longer secure. You are either for us or against us. We might be attacked at any time.” All of these messages push us towards fear.

“And by encouraging us to focus blame on others such as terrorists and “evil” leaders, the global power brokers push us away from feeling in control of our lives and towards the role of powerless victims, so that we look to them for protection. The more we slip into fear and being victims, the easier it is for us to be manipulated.” (3)

So we see that the ruling elite, who both represent and attempt to uphold our current paradigm of hatred and division, use those qualities as tools to keep our current standard enforced. Fear is unflinchingly lower-vibrational and won’t accompany us into a new paradigm based in security and love, but as long as we keep feeding it, the qualities of our current paradigm will remain in expression.

If we feel powerless or as if we’re unable to have a say in things that directly affect our lives, we won’t try to speak up or create anything new. We’ll remain obedient worker bees who don’t step out of line or question if something better could be on the horizon, waiting to be attained, because of the fear of really expressing ourselves.

This isn’t the kind of future I want to enter, and I’m sure most of you feel the same way. Thus, by breaking our dependence on government, corporations and every elite creation that’s put the few above the many, we’ll take significant steps toward creating something better.

We’re then told about instated polarization, or instated division as I’ve called it, and where it fits into an elite plan to distract and blind the people.

“Polarization leads to ‘us vs. them’ ways of thinking. Divide and conquer is a tactic that has been used successfully by the power elite of the world for centuries. As long as people focus on blaming and attacking ‘the enemy,’ they are not likely to look for the deeper causes of their problems.

“Controlling factions of the power elite work to keep public and media attention focused on issues which divide us into two polarized camps, so that their greatest concerns of power and control go unnoticed. The power brokers then control both sides of the divided public by assuring that corporate ownership of the media and key candidates from all political parties support their deeper power and polarization agendas, which often involve war profiteering.” (4)

Finally, we’re told about the mainstream media’s role in distracting us with increased televised violence, greed and lust.

“A final subtle, yet powerful method of gaining control is to distract people from their purpose in life. Consider that television, radio, and movies have been filled with ever more greed, violence, and empty sex. Our educational system has increasingly prioritized passing tests over developing intelligence and creativity.

“Excessive corporate control of the media has limited what news we receive, and often shaped our decisions and the way we think. Our attention has been subtly diverted from our deeper purpose in life to the more superficial attractions of sex, consumerism, and money.

“When we succumb to fear, secrecy, and polarization, and when we lose touch with our sense of purpose in life, elements of the global elite are able to exert ever more control over our lives and world.” (5)

Now that we understand the distraction that’s been cultivated, we can starve the forces that have cultivated it of the benefits they would’ve gained from keeping us unaware and divided.

Now we understand where elite corruption and tyranny fit into our current paradigm and how people profit from keeping it going. Despite all of this, I agree with the referenced source that an important aspect of consciously shifting into a new paradigm is staying away from the divisive “us vs. them” mindset.

Division can be expressed between races, but it can also come about if we choose to hate the one percent because of the corruption and self-service propagated by the planetary elite.

Even the people who’d be easy to hate because of what they’ve done aren’t worth lowering our vibration over, and in regards to unity or anything else, the most important change comes from within. If you can recognize the change that need made without hating the powers that were, you’ll be well on your way.

Since we’ve analyzed some of the aspects of our current paradigm, let’s take a look at the one we’re shifting into. What to Know Info tells us about the importance of committing to bringing about a new paradigm.

“Ultimately, it is the collective fear, secrecy, polarization, and loss of purpose within all of us that has allowed leaders to take power who would subvert democracy, and who would take away our freedoms and liberties. By each one of us making a commitment to work on these issues both inside of ourselves and out in the world – and to inspire others to do the same – we are changing our collective direction and building a solid foundation for a new paradigm. Several actions can help us to take firm steps in that direction.” (6)

I think this quote is important, because it encourages us to understand our power and reminds us that our planet is savable. Even though we’re in the midst of a potent paradigm shift, the road our planet and society takes has always been in our hands.

We can understand and utilize our power to be a massive force for change, and of course, inner work is important of we want to change the planet.

We’re then encouraged to find our purpose in life and passionately get to work.

Develop purpose and intentions for your life. To live full, rich lives in today’s complex world, it’s vitally important to give your life clear direction by exploring what is deepest and most meaningful to you, and by developing life purpose and intentions based on this. Then choose to live your intentions and follow your purpose to the best of your ability every day. By choosing to live with clear direction and focus, life becomes deeper and more meaningful. This then weakens the seduction of consumerism and media hype which distract us from our purpose, and allows us to more effectively focus on creating a new paradigm.” (7)

Developing our life purpose based on things we want to do is crucial to the service we give, and I’ve seen firsthand what can happen if we try to work away at something we don’t “feel”. Creativity and passion are important for anybody who wants to follow their dreams, and whatever you choose to do could be done for the benefit of others.

Instead of posting snippets from each recommendation given by Want to Know Info, I’ll post their list of the best things we can do to accelerate our paradigm shift.

“Choose to transform fear into acceptance and love

“Transcend victimhood/take personal responsibility for building a new paradigm

“Avoid secrecy and encourage openness and transparency

“Move beyond polarization and the focus on ‘good vs. evil’ and ‘us vs. them’

“Come together in groups and communities”. (8)

You’re encouraged to follow reference #3 and read more about these higher-vibrational qualities.

In my opinion, these are among the best things we can do if we want to start affecting our planet and the people around us positively. You’re encouraged to take these suggestions to heart and become a shining example of a new paradigm in action, because our planet’s desperately in need of people who can show the way.

Nothing stops us from blazing the trail and becoming the greatest force of inner and outer change this world’s yet seen, and like everything else, the decision to do so starts within. Just like changing the world starts with changing oneself, welcoming a new paradigm starts with the decision to become an example of it.

Of course, we’re in the midst of a shift and we’re not intended to get there all at once. Instead, we’re meant to learn and grow from the experiences and catalysts we go through.

We’re just beginning to grasp the idea of living in peace and harmony and treating each other and the land with respect, and we won’t be perfect examples of a new way of living overnight. This doesn’t mean we can’t put all of our effort into trying, however, and the first steps are always the most important to take.

The first steps put us on the path to fulfilling our greatest dreams and desires. If your greatest dream is to see unity and harmony come about between races and nations, take the first step by accessing the vast, natural reserve of peace and harmony you hold within.

Don’t suppress negative emotion or feign peace, but let everything flow naturally. You’re encouraged to situate yourselves on your own personal cloud nine with the bliss and harmony you can access, and when you do, you’ll be a potent force for transformation and transcendence of lower-dimensionality.

The paradigm shift we’re experiencing is calling us to cultivate the divine qualities and start making the effort to come together and mend the condition our planet’s in. If we can answer this call and seek within to find out what we can do to help awaken people and start moving in a positive direction, we’ll take the first steps on our road to repairing the planet.

If we can understand the importance of doing away with environmental destruction, the rule of the one percent and so many other things that keep us back from a new paradigm, we can build a future that far exceeds our wildest dreams.

I talk a lot about taking action to address the biggest issues we face and repair the planet, but there’s nothing wrong with envisioning a time when peace and harmony are the laws of the land and technology has advanced in a positive way instead of one that serves the few.

I don’t know about you, but I feel inspired to be a part of a movement geared toward real and lasting change that sees us act on our vision.

Believing that we’re in the midst of a social transformation that’ll make the movements of the 60s seem like child’s play, I’m ready to contribute as much of myself as possible to bringing humanity together and addressing the destructive ways this planet’s been run.

It’s time for respect and love to replace judgment and division, and it’s time for every aware person to throw themselves into raising the collective vibration so that everyone can feel the results of our ongoing paradigm shift. I’ll continue to write about it, but I can only do so much.

At a certain point, it becomes necessary for all of you out there to act on the inspiration this website intends to provide. After so long of talking about a new paradigm and bringing peace back to this lost world, action has to follow suit.

Even though we’ll experience adversity along the way, nothing will stop us from uniting and building the great galactic society of our dreams. Advanced technology that’ll be used for humanity’s benefit and economic growth that’ll spread like wildfire to every country and person await us, if we can step up to the plate and make it clear that we’re willing to work for them.

The work doesn’t have to bring us down, as long as we find our greatest passion and run with it. Feeling passionate and inspired to create and be the greatest changes we want to see will motivate every person to get to work restoring our planet, and you’re welcomed to this website with one simple question: how do you want to change the world?
