Sufi mystic Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Over the past three or four years, I’ve had conversations with family members and close friends about how it feels like the world is going through a big transition. From the way we connect to one another, to the way we work and live, it just feels like things are changing faster than they ever have before in so many areas of our lives.

Some people might say – well, you have nothing to base that observation on, no comparison – but I disagree. I believe that we’re all made up of and intertwined in a unified energy field that carries the memories and knowledge of all of our collective experiences.

I would have maybe rolled my eyes at a statement like this just a year ago, so I understand if it doesn’t make sense or if it sounds far out to some people. It’s okay.

I can only speak from what I’ve experienced and felt over these last few months, and from my perspective — from where I stand in this unified energy field — I feel confident in the observation that things are changing in a very significant way right now for everyone on the planet.

As I’ve started exploring more about higher levels of consciousness, I’ve found that a lot of people are describing the experience of “waking up” in different ways, but it seems like meditation and/or a return to stillness and silence is a common theme for people moving down this path.

Now that I’ve started becoming more aware about who I am as a person, I’ve started seeking out people who are discussing how we, as a planet, are transitioning into the next level of human evolution.

I especially enjoy the way Sufi mystic Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee talks about the concept at minute 14.09 in this video interview.

(As an aside, I don’t connect with, relate to, or believe in everything he believes in, but some of what he talks about does resonate with me.)

I was struck by the answer he gave when the interviewer asks him to describe the circumstances under which the world as we know it would come to an end. I was struck because it rang so true to me and just felt accurate. Like it was something I’d already sensed, but haven’t quite put a finger on yet. He said,

“The world as we know it has already come to an end. Things change first on the inner. There is a law that everything that happens in life first constellates on the inner planes.

The world as we know it inwardly has already ended, it is already over. I think somebody once said it’s like the last dance on the Titanic. It is already over. There is a whole other level of evolution called evolution of oneness or global awareness. It is already setting the scenes for the next level of human evolution.”

In this article from 2011 – “How Our Consciousness Affects the Environment” – he talks about how the science journal Nature announced that there are clear indications that the world’s sixth “mass extinction” is already underway.

Yet we sense in our souls what we can see in the ecosystem: that something is over, that the world will not return to what it was.

And the collective, still caught in its dream of materialism, feels an anxiety, even anger, as it knows that this dream has passed its sell-by date, that its promises of prosperity are empty.

How long can this last? How long can the ignorance of our true predicament remain? How long can we collectively sustain the distractions that protect us from seeing what is really happening? And how long will humanity and the whole world remain in this darkness?

Interesting stuff. Again, I don’t relate to everything he says, but some of what he teaches does line up for me.
