Many lightworkers are still looking at compassionate action as something that is done externally, and not an internal alchemical process of transmuting their personal feelings, patterns, actions, and ideas into something new; they believe that they can act our world into a better place without profoundly changing who they are within.
“The only hope for humankind is in the transformation of the individual.” ~Krishnamurti
There are two separate patterns and paradigms of relating to the divine and the material realms that have caused this confusion, for in one paradigm they have a “why” that supports their “how”, whereas in the other they have a “how” that supports their “why”; this probably explains why when these two groups attempt to communicate, it can seem so tedious, as if they’re speaking two different languages.
The “why” that supports a “how” is old paradigm and a hierarchical form of unity, and many lightworkers are trying to fight the darkness, the Illuminati, and governments with this old paradigm thinking/relating; but it’s just not going to work, as many are painfully finding out. The old paradigm rulers are the inventors of this mindset, nobody can beat them at their own game using their patterns and tools. This is why we must leave their game, and consciously set up a new one here on earth, one where the “how” supports our “why”; then we can act as the bridge from the old game to the new game.
Lightworkers who are still acting from within the old paradigm fail to remember that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, as Osho said about acting without awareness:
Buddha has said: If there is compassion without awareness, it is dangerous. That’s what is in the people we call do-gooders. They have compassion, but no awareness. They go on doing good, and yet that good has not even happened to their own beings. They go on helping others, and they themselves need much help. They themselves are ill, and they go on helping other people–it is not possible. Physician, heal thyself first!
Buddha says if you have compassion without awareness, your compassion will be harmful. Do-gooders are the most mischievous people in the world. They don’t know what they are doing, but they are always doing something or other to help people.
…If you don’t know what you are doing, you can think that you are doing good, but good cannot happen.”
To increase awareness, the “how” must be temporarily abandoned for an increased reliance upon asking “why” things are as they are, and then allowing Source to answer these questions. “Why”, especially as it relates to our shadow side, beliefs, patterns, triggers, judgments, guilt, shame, sadness, fear, detachment, powerlessness, and anger, must be analyzed through the lens of our Source within; to be purified and transmuted into self-sustaining emotional and material patterns of relating to ourselves and others.
Without the transformative power of following the “why” back to the original cause of our suffering and separation, we’ll continually repeat the old paradigm symptoms that continue to submerge our life and planet in suffering, resource consumption, and death. Aspects of these “why” answers lie within our own childhood experiences, in the patterns we were taught through example and the hierarchical system prior to the age of eight. Transmuting these faulty patterns into better serving ones, via asking and refining our “why” questions, will lead us home to our individuality and unique role within the universal mosaic of unity experience.
After having been reconnected to our Source through our “why” questions and answers, and with the higher understanding that results from it permeating out from our being, our compassion can finally follow awareness rather than happening in a vacuum devoid from it. The actions that result from this higher, inside-out understanding will be powerful and effective, as opposed to their former dangerous and destructive nature.
If we wish to change the world, we must continually ask “why”, keep refining our “why”, and finally, when we’ve become so adept at asking “why” as to have aligned our understanding with that of Source consciousness—pure and healthy “how” questions, answers, and compassion will follow. Once we do, we will be operating in the unity pattern of a “how” that supports our “why”, rather than the old paradigm’s duality pattern of a “why” that supports their “how”.
