The age of crude, gross, and insane materialism is over.

Humanity is most definitely on the brink of awakening! You need to wake up from the dream/nightmare/illusion that has encouraged you to believe in separation and engage in interminable conflict for eons. Over the last few decades the technological achievements of mass instant communications worldwide has enabled awareness to grow of your global interdependence – no one is an island – and of the essential requirement for a change in attitudes and behaviors to eradicate poverty and become true guardians of your beautiful Planet Earth. Your disastrous industrial behavior, which has caused so much environmental damage, has to be terminated and replaced by modern technologies – which are readily available – that treat the Earth, your home, with honor and loving respect. There is no lack, the planet is well able to support you all if you will just engage with her lovingly and considerately.
The age of crude, gross, and insane materialism is over. It is being superseded as the young members of humanity everywhere rightly demand change so that a sustainable way of living that honors the planet and all life forms, while at the same time starting to repair the enormous industrial damage of the last two or three hundred years, is introduced. The damaging methods of industry, that have escalated in recent decades, must cease, and the toxicity that they have caused must be cleaned up. The technology to do this is readily available now! It has been suppressed by those who chose to enrich themselves regardless of the cost to humanity or to the planet, but it is now being brought into action on a small scale in may areas for proof of concept trials that will lead to large scale planetary revitalization and remediation.
As you well know, humanity has taken the collective decision to awaken, and as a direct consequence of that decision much is now arising into people’s awareness that has long been buried, hidden, or denied, because it was far too painful to be held in conscious awareness. Basically withheld and unacknowledged harsh and bitter judgments of others, judgments that were in truth self-judgments projected out onto others in order to avoid the intense pain of owning them – pain so intense that it could lead people to desire self-destruction.
Over the eons this has set the stage for today’s development of weapons of mass destruction to be used preemptively to attack othersif those who possessed them felt sufficiently threatened. But an attack is always an attack on the self, because there is no other. That is why conflict always leads to further conflict as the self repeatedly attacks itself to right wrongs it believes were directed at it by others. This is nothing but a continuous feedback loop constantly reinforcing itself until the insanity is recognized and someone chooses to break or discontinue it. That recognition has now occurred, and has given rise to peace movements, and to an increasing number of meditation or prayer groups meeting regularly with the same intention, namely to live peacefully by engaging fully with their true nature which is Love.
What still has not been widely enough recognized is that peace has to arise first within the individual, within the self. To demand that others be peaceful and respectful while failing to release negative and harsh judgments of them is self-defeating. Negative judgments are always a reflection of unacknowledged negative self-judgments projected onto others. Yes, others do behave in ways that are unkind and unloving, but that is just a reflection of their own inner turmoil, and self-hatred. Self-hatred in self or in others needs to be met with love, and only with love.
The way forward is to acknowledge this – in yourselves and in others – however painful it is to admit to having made seemingly terrible and unconscionable choices and then acted on them, and then forgive oneself and resolve not to continue along that path. Doing this brings an enormous sense of peace, along with the strength to feel emotions of anger and resentment without acting them out on others, and in that space Love is found, along with a strong desire to forgive those whom one believes has hurt or offended oneself.
As so many wise ones have informed you: There is only Love, nothing else is real. However, when feelings of bitterness, resentment, a need for restitution, or hatred are harbored and nursed Love is blocked out because when you hold onto to unloving feelings you just cannot be loving, as Love is hidden by the fog and confusion that those feelings produce, and your awareness and attention are finely focused there, and only there, in that fog of confusion. And in that confusion of thought and of perception it is impossible to see the way forward to a state of lasting peace, as your history clearly shows. Because you are very powerful divine beings, what you focus your attention on is precisely what you experience. Change your focus and change your experiences.
When you go within, to that place where peace and love are always present, to relieve your stress by relaxing and letting go of the worries and anxieties with which your lives are often seemingly filled, reset the intent to be only loving whatever arises. This intent needs to be reset regularly because it is often displaced or overridden when an event or situation arises that angers or frightens you. By resetting the intent you effectively let go of the unloving emotions that have arisen, leaving you free once more to be only loving. And when you do this you feel so much better because your mood has shifted. This is the best way to exchange a bad or unhappy mood for one of peace and contentment. And when you are at peace your energy field is welcoming, encouraging others to feel the peace and respond to you peacefully.
To awaken is to move into your place of peace and remain there at all times, thus finding yourselves feeling happy and contented because you are at HOME! You are at One with Source instead of attempting to separate yourself from that perfect state of being. Then life is constantly joyful and the issues that made you feel separate, alone, lost, are no more.
With so very much love, Saul.
