Choice and Discernment, Use It!

In the following article, "Time for Discernment" posted on The 2012 Scenario by Steve Beckow, Steve reminds us that we still cannot trust a great deal of the information that's being presented to us. Although things are getting better, and more deception is being uncovered and announced every day, there are still factions and people who fail to grasp the magnitude, importance, and reality of the changes that lie just under the surface of all that we currently see. Many many people are so stuck in old paradigms that they cannot even accept good news when they hear it, let alone walk away from bad news.

So while I agree with Steve that we need to be using our discernment, I'd take his advice even a step further: If what you read or hear or think about sends shivers of upset into your body, stop and ask yourself why. Ask yourself if you want to continue to be led into the depths of darkness and despair, or if instead you prefer to follow the path of light, into a world of peace and joy and abundance for all. A world that works for everyone.

How we respond to things that we read, hear, or think is our choice. It's a choice we always have. Always. We don't ever have to "go there" with information that makes us upset or feel bad or lose hope. You can follow the lead of those who react and stay in fear, or you can stand as the powerful creator being that you are, that you know you are, and find a way to shift your perspective of whatever is currently confronting you.

If you find yourself feeling bad about what you are seeing, hearing, reading, thinking, or being told, find a way to shift perspective such that the feelings of fear and hopelessness dissipate, or simply walk away from it - "mmm .. ok, interesting but not for me".

But whatever you do, allow yourself to return to the joy and hopefulness that is your inherent right as the spark of God that you are. "All is well in all of creation, and all is well with me." Right here. Right now. It is your inherent right to experience that joy, but you must choose it.

Here's what Steve had to say:
Time for Discernment
2012 NOVEMBER 12

Heavens, it’s getting to be the case where we have to file a story often on the stories we don’t post. There’s a very confusing story circulating that “15 states have filed petitions to separate from the United States.”

We could post it. Many other sites have. But is it truly a story or is it one more attempt by the cabal to block a return to honest government?

In actuality a very small numbers of citizens from several states have filed petitions such as these but that could hardly be called “states.”

In a democracy people have the right to petition their governments. In China, it was a petition filed at a government office which started the tremendous persecution of Falun-Gong members.

That persecution has reached levels which, if we in the West, knew what actually happens to Falun-Gong members in jail or prison, we’d be revolted. And we’d revolt against such treatment. But FG practitioners get word out to the world at great peril and regrettably-few people show very much interest in a religious group in faraway China. So the right to petition one’s state is a free-speech right that shouldn’t be taken for granted and should be treasured.

But a few hundred people doth not a state make. This is just one of many stories we have to be circumspect about posting. With regard to the petitions story, it suggests that the election of President Obama was the last straw for many people. It suggests that ordinary citizens are advocating secession and one story even uses the words “civil war” in a sentence.

But we’ve seen how the elite in Congress, business and elsewhere operate. They did anything they could over the last four years to defeat whatever measure could be connected to President Obama. They use words like “socialist” to taint any effort that promises to benefit the majority of citizens. They argue that measures that benefit the environment, the sick, the aged, etc., cannot be afforded while wars of aggression against countries whose oil or other resources they covet must be carried out. They advocate cutting taxes as long as it’s for their allies and cutting spending as long as it’s social rather than military spending.

We have to ask ourselves if the small number of people who signed these petitions really are “ordinary citizens” or if this is just the next move the Right wishes to make to place any kind of obstacle they can in the President’s path.

And this is only one story from among many that are being floated right now that seem to be highly suspect and look like they’re simply designed to instil fear. They’re a companion piece to the ubiquitous programming on TV that features a vast array of predatory enemies (monsters, aliens, criminals, and so on) or dire conditions (earthquakes, tsunamis, electromagnetic storms, asteroids, etc.). Everything is being done to unhinge us and make the world seem unsafe.

So we ask you to be highly discerning in what you read at this time and to remain calm in the face of what may be last-ditch efforts to stampede the herd and throw us all into panic. Heaven knows we may have enough of that when our star brothers and sisters begin showing themselves to the public.

We’re in a time now in which the cabal is in its death throes and we can expect any kind of story to be floated and any measure to be tried to defeat those who are corraling the cabal. Now is the time that will test our discernment, calmness, and balance.

Yes, there are obvious Earth changes that are occurring. Yes, some do have impact and hardship is being created which is challenging us to reach out to those affected. But we have to separate out the real from the contrived. The situation for those affected is bad enough without chaos being added to it.

So do use your utmost discrimination in what you read these days and how you interpret it.
