Moving Towards the Tipping Point

     Online discussions of The Shift and ongoing Shift Energy often quote an American First Nations storyteller named Choquash  who is credited with this quote:
     "The elders have sent me to tell you that now is like a rushing river, and this will be experienced in many different ways. There are those who would hold onto the shore... there is no shore. The shore is crumbling. Push off into the middle of the river. Keep your head above the water, look around to see who else is in the river with you, and celebrate."
     When we experience Now as a rushing river, we do well to get away from the shore. An eroding riverbank can be deadly as it collapses into the moving water. Clinging to what was, and attempting to escape the flow can put an end to the enhancements we are here to claim for our lives.
     Among practitioners and teachers who focus on Shift, there is much use of the image of water being heated. There comes a point at which those water molecules which have reached boiling point are so numerous and well-distributed that all the other molecules inevitably achieve boiling point. As higher consciousness is attained by sufficient individuals, chain reactions will elevate all of humanity to that level.
     This is called the Tipping Point. In Shift thinking it is applied to that moment when so many people have Awakened that suddenly, nearly everyone ‘tips over’ to adopt the progressive thinking and behaviours that will define the next phase of the human story.
     Today the Shift is well underway, yet the tipping point is still at a distance. There is hard work ahead of each of us as we find each other in the rushing river, and move into the new way of being – as our fully expressed selves and as examples in the world.
     Jim Malloy of the Worldwide Online Meditation Center has provided some guidelines to help us to make the most of this Now.
     Firstly, he suggests that everyone meditate daily. This helps to relax, to see why returning to shore is not a benefit, and to release any anchors which may be weighing you down.
     Secondly, he tells us to stay centered, which can be a by-product of meditation. Frequent conscious centering is a reminder to return attention to the calm depth of Self throughout the day. This will reduce stress as the frequency in our personal energy field is raised by the changing vibrations in our Spirit.
     Thirdly, Malloy tells us to trust in the guidance and the assistance that comes to us as intuition. There is help from the unseen realms available as we move through this time of transition.
     Finally, he advises us to remember that we live in extraordinary times. As Awakened people, our life experience is amplified. We are unable to avoid being present in the feelings when sorrow or joy occurs. We are fully connected to the Human Condition that we, as Spiritual Beings, are here to discover. We do well to be kind with ourselves.
     Abraham Hicks says that it doesn't matter what anybody else is doing with their vibration, it only matters what you are doing. Certainly when we are looking around from the cascading waters we must not allow ourselves to be drawn back to the disintegrating riverbank. The middle of the river is a place of growth in Love. We can beckon people to join us: we cannot make the journey for them. 
     As we Awaken and find each other and build community we may have moments of fear and doubt. These are changing times, and caution is entirely to be expected. Each of us is in a time of progressive transition, and we can ensure the best possible outcomes by committing fully to working together towards a future very different from the past.
