What I Want

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 253rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

What I want is simple.

I want the world to live in peace; not die in war. I want to see people treat each other as equals; not hate and kill each other over something as silly as religious or political differences. I want us to treat each other as one human race; not multiple races in perpetual conflict over what divides us.

I want to help people understand what love really is; not the romantic notions we’ve come to associate with love, but true love. This is love for all mankind, and with it comes the understanding that we are one race. We can thrive together or fall together. Continue reading

Continued from part 1 (read full post here).

We Don’t Need Them

We don’t need Big Brother watching our every move for ‘national security’ purposes and pouncing on us when they think we’ve done something wrong.

We don’t need militarized police forces causing mayhem in the streets, and we definitely don’t need political pundits in expensive suits screaming at us to conform to a corrupt system that serves them and their rich friends.

We need a new way of life free from the greed and corruption of the one percent, who’ll tell us any lie imaginable just to push their agenda forward. We also need a world free from the greed and corruption of the common man, whose negativity enables the world’s suffering. Continue reading

Are You Ready for a Spiritual Revolution? – Part 1/2

If we want to create a new system out of the ashes of the old, we should think about the role we’ll play in creating it.

We should figure out what we can do right now to reflect the paradigm shift the world needs, and we should remember that if we continue to be angry, greedy or judgmental, a new world will be impossible because we’ll fail create it from within.

Any changes we’re able to make will be nullified shortly after, because we’ll fail to heal the underlying cause of the world’s broken condition; namely, the anger and greed we’ll continue to sustain. Continue reading

I Stand With the Conscious Community

I stand with my brothers and sisters in the conscious community who are working hard to raise awareness and set the planet free. I’m proud to be a part of this movement, and I’ll gladly work with anyone who’s genuinely dedicated to change.

We can achieve more if we work together or at least support each other, because we’ll have an interlocked network to go to for guidance if we ever need it. We can come to each other with problems that stump us, and we can remind each other that we aren’t alone; there are people around us willing to lift us up when we’re in doubt.

Everyone is approaching this revolution from a different angle, and we all have something unique to give that comes with its own set of problems. This is one reason I think we should support each other, and while we might not be able to help with issues that are specific to someone else’s work, we can still let them know they’re not alone.

We All Want a Better World

The conscious community is comprised of people from all walks of life who are passionate about changing the world, and we all have different beliefs, lifestyles and visions of the future.

Some want to expand their consciousness, while others want to protect endangered species and hold corrupt corporations accountable for environmental crimes. Some want to expose government corruption, and some want to do all of it.

They want to protect animals, raise their vibration, hold the corrupt accountable; advocate healthful eating; the list goes on. These are the ones who can achieve the most if they’re motivated enough, because they’re passionate about it all. Continue reading

Freedom from Duality – Part 2/2

The Teachers Speak (KEEP)By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

This is a part of The Teachers Speak, a series of articles on the Culture of Awareness. Continued from part 1 (Read full post here).

According to John Ruusbroec, we strengthen the barrier between us and our creator when we try to intellectually examine life.

“At the very moment when we try to examine and observe what it is that we are experiencing, we slip back into the activity of reasoning, at which we become aware of distinction between ourselves and God.” (1)

The Upanishads tell us that our false sense of separation from the Source creates fear.

“So long as there is the least idea of separation from him, there is fear.” (2)

To be one with God is to be free of fear, because we know we can do anything with the Most High by our side. Continue reading

Freedom from Duality – Part 1/2

The Teachers Speak (KEEP)By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

This is a part of The Teachers Speak, a series of articles on the Culture of Awareness. Read full post here.

According to various spiritual teachers, the material world begins with duality. Higher stages of spiritual growth reveal to us that everything is one; we’re all on this journey together and to focus only on our differences is to impede societal and spiritual evolution.

At a certain point, we realize we all share this experience we call life and we can create amazing things if we create them together.

When we become aware of our unbreakable connection with all living things, tension fades and discomfort toward others is replaced with empathy, understanding and the willingness to work together to improve the world. Continue reading
