A Complete Rebalancing of the World
This is Gilles. I greet you, dear Ones, and bow to the Divine energy present in all of us.
I was reading a post by Anna Merkaba this evening (March 15) and a piece of it caught my eye. Here are Anna’s words. “I feel that this virus is just the tip of the iceberg; it is here to point us to that which is beneath, that which we cannot yet see, but are being forced to pay attention to. As terrible as this virus may seem, it is really here to assist us in awakening all of humanity.”
Personally, I [Gilles] feel that this virus hasn’t accomplished much yet; perhaps it is preparing us for what is yet to come, but it hasn’t achieved anything in terms of rebalancing the forces of power that dictate how we live and how we breathe.
What I am referring to are the so-called most powerful countries in the world, as defined by their economic performance, the G7, the G20, or the G-whatever. Did any of you have a chance to reflect on who’s been affected by the pandemic that is bringing all that s… out of humanity?
Mostly countries in North America, western Europe and a few influential countries in Asia, starting with China.
I have a friend who lives in Ivory Coast. I asked him last week how badly his country was affected. He responded, “We have one case and it is under control. It is the same in Senegal and I also heard about one case in Gabon.”
It is not about geography, dear Ones, it is about power. Power and arrogance. What I call “rebalancing of the world” is about re-equalizing the power structures in the world, and it is obvious to me that the countries that are affected first and foremost are the most … arrogant. And the most powerful as well.
I was browsing the headlines of a North American media this evening and it read, “What are we going to do when the Earth reopens?” Fifty countries are under duress and that is the whole world that is suffering. Ego, self-importance. We are the world. The rest may not even exist.
Another recent example was offered by a candidate in the democratic primary in the United States. This person entered the race late and spent five hundred million dollars in advertising to end up nowhere. Did he think one minute that this money could have been better employed by feeding the malnourished and taking care of the frail people all over the planet? All this money that went to waste, that only served an “ego purpose,” disappeared in less than two months.
How many people do you think we could feed, and for how long, with five hundred million dollars?
Arrogance, self-importance, economic power and a sense that one country (or a few of them) must, or have to, lead the world; these are the causes of this whirlwind of mental and psychological disarray.
What is needed is primarily a readjustment of what has been damaged and sabotaged over the centuries—the human spirit. The world as we know it could be divided between the ‘haves’ and the ‘haves nots,’ knowing that millions of people in the world do not have enough money to feed their family on a daily basis.
It is this kind of economic injustice that needs to be addressed; in fact, that needs to be crushed, and a ‘resilient virus’ that sadly killed 10,000 people may not do the work. In fact, it simply cannot, because people are not seeing these causes for what they are; they are not waking up, and it doesn’t seem to bring decision-makers to reason properly. Just the contrary, thereby creating more fear and chaos.
What we need is what I call a “spiritual earthquake;” one which will crush those economic egos and bring everyone to a level that feels—and is—more egalitarian.
The time is now, dear Ones. The storm is beginning, I shall say, and it must engulf everything that needs to be overhauled, destroyed, or shattered. A Phoenix cannot rise out of crumbling structures; these structures have to be down to the level of ashes, to the level of dust.
And it seems that we, as a human race, still have some way to go before we get to that place where we can call for a “true rebirth.” A rebirth of the human spirit, a rebirth of every one of us, in the depth of our lives.
Then, perhaps, we will see with fresh eyes what this new world is about. Peace, love, fraternity, compassion and a genuine desire to support one another, without expecting anything in return.
A world where we are One.
