Is Anywhere Safe These Days?
After the horrifying events in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, many people are left asking, "Is anywhere safe these days?" My answer is yes—and no. There is no safe place in lower-vibrational, fear-dictated Difficult World. The only safe place, ever, in any geographical location, is the high-vibrational world that Love creates, the reality matrix I've dubbed "Easy World."
Those of you who have been following my work know that I teach that your vibrational level and your focus determine your reality—what you experience—at any given moment. When you allow Love to be your guide and the source of the energy you partake of, you will experience beauty and harmony. You will be at high vibration, ensconced in Easy World.
When you allow the greedy, conflict and sensation-hungry Difficult World Dictator to lead you and feed you, it will always lead you to pain and trauma-inducing Difficult World.
The following is from a news article about the July 20, 2012 theater massacre, in which 12 people were killed and 58 others were injured, describing the movie that was premiering, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. "The film has several scenes of public mayhem—a hallmark of superhero movies. In one scene, the main villain, Bane, leads an attack on the stock exchange and, in another, leads a shooting and bombing rampage on a packed football stadium."
What aspect of the creators of that movie were dominating them during its creation? Greed, manipulation and a fascination with violence and destruction are characteristics of the fear-driven ego. Hollywood knows it's a proven formula for profits: appealing to the reptilian brain and providing it with an adrenalin-rich banquet of fear. It's the ultimate celebration for the Difficult World Dictator! Why are we surprised when the DWD uses the nutrients partaken of at the banquet to fuel extreme Difficult World scenarios in real life?
When you're at higher vibration—and certainly, when you're in Easy World—that kind of entertainment is of no interest at all to you. It is unlikely you'd ever be attracted to it because it's simply not a vibrational match. No, the success of such a movie depends on enough people being at lower vibration, under the spell of the DWD.
In creating it, the DWD within the consciousness of the movie's creators (and its financial backers) were in collusion with movie-goers who were following their own DWD's urges to consume energy in reverse polarity (what the DWD thrives off of).
Am I saying "Don't go to Batman movies" or any other movies with violence? Am I saying the people who were killed and injured were being punished for the "sins" of being seduced by the prospect of watching the violence and the extreme duality play that is the Batman theme? Not exactly.
It is not wrong to follow the DWD. It is not a moral issue but a choice that our human free will affords us. We all do it to some degree or another. But it's important to know that when you do, you are choosing to experience and magnify the DWD's world, with all its ramifications. And some of them are very ugly, indeed.
I know the DWD in some reading this will be tempted to rise up indignantly and argue that, for example, the kids in the Columbine massacre were just at school, minding their own business when that horrific event unfolded—that they weren't actively seeking a fix for their DWD that day. I'm not saying that horrifying things don't happen in situations where no overt attraction to violence is being acted upon by those in harm's way. They do. All the time. But I am saying those involved are in Difficult World, just as most of us are prone to be when we aren't conscious of and managing our vibrational level.
In any case, this is the important point: When you're in Easy World, you are not subject to the horrors of Difficult World. Instead, you are elevated above them. This is not just an airy-fairy theory—it's an understanding that is powerfully practical. But it requires a choice—many choices—in order to realign to the natural high-vibrational state we are designed to inhabit and thrive in.
When you consciously follow your Spirit instead of the DWD, choose Love over fear, and stop feeding the greedy beast that depends on your energy to keep Difficult World going, you find yourself in harmonious, high-vibe Easy World. The experiences you have when you're there won't include being under attack by deranged, automatic-weapon-wielding sociopaths. So my advice is to choose Easy World, the world that Love creates.
It's the only safe place.
