Seeing the best in life's challenges

Simplicity and Open-Heartedness

on November 15, 2011

The following is something I found online back in 2006, I believe:

“The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light. Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder … said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way.

Reflecting on this, Mr. Barrios explained: “We live in a world of polarity: day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance. Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy …”

“On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group’s understandings, are the key. There’s a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus.”

As Mr. Barrios sees it, the dark side works to block (oneness) through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining (world), the materialism. They do not want it to change.

They do not want (oneness). They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level.

The dark power of the declining (world) cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It’s too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to (oneness). “

A couple of years later, I found that Carlos Barrios published a book called The Book of Destiny.  It’s a really interesting book about the Mayan perspective on the world.
