Jason’s January Message
Being Peace in 2016
Please do your absolute best to find some real inner peace this New Year for the good of the whole human race. If it was easy for human beings to find true, lasting inner peace, the whole world would be at peace by now. But we are always fighting someone or something. What would it be like to live your whole life in peace, with absolutely no fearful thoughts, no grievances and no attack thoughts? You have no idea and neither does anyone else!
Sadly, given the current level of collective human consciousness, wars are inevitable. In the West, we are actually very lucky to have enjoyed around 70 years of relative peace. But the human race is never totally at peace. After WWII, we had the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the two Iraq Wars to name just a few. Now the war against terrorism is spreading all around the world.
Don’t ask why we keep fighting and fighting, we just cannot help ourselves. We all hold strong views about right and wrong and then one ideological camp has to fight the other camp.
In my whole life, I do not think I have ever met a human being whose mind does not entertain some kind of conflict, and when our minds are in conflict, the world will be at war.
Most people still believe that peace means a truce between periods of fighting. But true peace is much deeper than that. However, we all find it so hard to dwell in true peace because our egoic minds never shut up, and moreover, these minds are always trying to persuade us that we have real enemies in this world. So now, we urgently need to expand our awareness in order to observe the craziness of our angry, fearful minds and thus begin to disassociate ourselves from our attacking thoughts.
Do you realise that all the conflicts and hatreds in our world are simply a reflection of the conflict and self-hatred within our own minds? Good friends can so easily turn into enemies and then they never make up for the rest of their lives. Does this not seem odd, or even tragic, to you? Have you ever had an enemy who turned into your best friend? I doubt it.
I now treasure friendship above all else because I have noticed how blessed I am to have a few good friends whom I can really trust during times of turmoil. Our world is never stable because our egoic-self is never stable. We keep changing our minds. One minute someone is our best friend and the next they are our enemy. How can this be right? Basically, our egoic minds are always deceiving us about other people and even ourselves. Your version of Jason Chan for example is totally different from the version of Jason Chan created by the other people reading this message.
Moreover, our opinion of other people depends on how we are feeling at any given moment. If we are feeling moody, our partner, for example, may really irritate us. This has nothing to do with the other person and everything to do with our crazy, volatile egoic mindset. All human beings are volatile and unreliable because the egoic thought system is so erratic and crazy.
All minds are joined. Our minds are not solid objects like brains, and they definitely still exist after our physical brain is no more, and so we can still communicate with our loved ones after their bodies and brains have passed away. But now you need to set your own trapped mind free. Keep expanding your consciousness, until eventually you can totally escape from the nightmare that is the egoic thought system. Once you can expand your consciousness into the higher light, you can begin to cultivate a lasting inner peace and then extend peaceful, calm energy out into the world around you.
Building Strong Foundations
Before we can be the peace we are seeking at all times, we need to create balance and harmony in our body, mind and emotions. Taoists in ancient China found out about this vital truth about life a long time ago. Have you attained a state of inner balance and harmony yet?
The human race is still evolving slowly and painfully, and so we all still experience a lot of conflict within our own minds and in the world that we perceive around us. However, if the human race is to survive in the long run, we all now need to connect to the true beauty, grace and peace of Life Itself.
We can all connect to God’s eternal peace momentarily – if our consciousness is open and quiet enough. But then our minds move and we lose our connection to this lasting peace once again.
When our consciousness is centred in our Heart or Crown Centre, we will naturally begin to connect to the true beauty and innate peace of Life Itself. But most human beings are still trapped in the low consciousness of their three lower centres, and because of this, we can still kill each other in our millions.
All human greed, aggression, guilt and hatred are centred in the three lower centres, and moreover, there is no real love in these centres, and so the whole human race is still in a mess. All wars start from the angry aggressive consciousness of our lower energy centres. So now, if you want to be of real help to our troubled world, you need to strengthen your three lower centres, at the same time as shifting into a higher consciousness so that you can connect to ‘the light’.
Before you can assist in transforming our world from one of based on fear and conflict to one based on true love and peace, you need to transform your own energy and consciousness. First, balance your three lower chakras by bringing love energy into them so that you can feel truly safe and abundant and then open your heart and mind to eternal grace, peace and love.
Most people never feel truly safe in this world and then they inevitably play up. I now make absolutely sure that I never threaten anyone with my angry words or angry energy. But I do know just how challenging it is to maintain one’s inner peace when the whole world is at war. Unfortunately, we cannot just tell those who are not dwelling in inner peace, grace and beauty to lay down their weapons. We have to become the change we long to see in the world. We have to demonstrate to others how to live in peace and harmony, rather than lecturing them about the need for World Peace. Once we connect to true grace and beauty, the effect on our whole system is so powerful that we just will not be able to wage war on anyone, not even our greatest enemy.
A clear mind dwelling in a high vibration is a peaceful mind, and a peaceful mind has the power to protect us from all the negativity of the destructive egoic thought system. When our mind is open and peaceful, our emotional body will also become calm and harmonious, and so we can finally become a true blessing to the world. Instead of adding to the world’s problems by thinking angry, or even hateful thoughts, that always have negative energy attached to them, we can commit to thinking nothing but kind, peaceful thoughts that will automatically send peaceful, harmonious energy out into the world around us. Isn’t this a wonderful goal to work towards in 2016?
Of course, we may not reach a state of perfect inner peace for quite some time, but if we resolve to do our very best to become more positive, peaceful and more harmonious in 2016, we will still be assisting the whole of humanity to evolve towards a truly peaceful and prosperous future.
