The Adventure of Being Human
by Owen Waters
Thousands of years ago, humanity made a decision; a decision
to live with a sense of inner separation.
At that time, spirits had become tired of incarnating as
fully-aware spirits-in-physicality. They wanted more challenge
in the game of life. They wanted to turn life into a mystery; a
true, stand-alone human experience, not just an extension of
spirit into matter.
Bear in mind that, in the natural state of spiritual living,
as free spirits in the mental realms, there are very few
limitations. People can manifest anything they need, relocate
instantly in space, shift to a different position in time, all
at the speed of thought. In the mental realms, people can visit
friends or travel with them, exploring the universe, all
through the power of thought. That's why they're called the
To be more specific, the mental realms exist in fifth density
consciousness and are the domain of your soul or inner being.
Between third-density physicality and the fifth-density realm
of your inner being lies the fourth-density or astral realm,
populated by people in the early to main stages of the
afterlife. In the late stages of the afterlife, people move
into fifth density to consider their options for further
Physical incarnation is always voluntary. Nothing compels your
soul to incarnate into another physical life. It is always a
decision at the personal and soul group level whether to come
back into physical life on Earth.
Thousands of years ago, physical experience was a
fully-conscious extension of spirit into matter. People knew
who they were as spirits, connected to their inner selves and
to the universe as a whole.
"What if," they said, "we came into physical existence and
didn't know who we were? We could spend our whole lives
searching for the answer to the puzzle. Imagine what a
challenge it would be!"
Mankind then made the joint decision to immerse itself further
into a denser, more focused reality. Their focus was directed
upon the physical senses, along with a detachment from the
superconscious and subconscious levels of thinking. By
maintaining a tight focus upon the "outer" world of the senses,
humans could even believe that they are fixed into one location
in space and locked into a time continuum.
Imagine, physical life would become so intense, so real, so
convincing. Now, most people love exciting rides, like the ones
at amusement parks. And, if the ride seems scary, so much the
better. Roller coaster rides are scary. The old Ghost Train
rides at U.K. fairgrounds were scary. Disney's Haunted Mansions
at their theme parks in California, Florida, Paris and Tokyo
are all very scary. So scary that, when the rides end, people
"That was great! Want to go round again?"
Life can be scary, too. A life spent without a constant,
conscious connection to your true inner nature is always a
Today, the amusement park ride of inner separation is coming
to an end. The Shift to the New Reality is happening today. We
are becoming more and more aware of our inner nature. Those who
grasp the idea of the New Reality will actively develop that
inner connection, and not just wait for it to surprise them as
it slowly unfolds.
And remember, this ride through intense physicality was always
a choice. We may not remember as far back as when the choice
was made, but, at a soul level, we've been willingly hopping on
and off the theme park ride of physical life on Earth ever
We incarnate for the experience of physical life, and to help
transform this reality towards its ultimate state, one which,
today, is looming very near.
These are the days of transformation, the time of The Shift.
The scary ride is coming to an end. As a culture, we are about
to find ourselves and reconnect within.
