Are you choosing heaven, or are you choosing hell?

I was recently shown this image:

· Each person on Earth is standing in front of two doors.

· Through one door is evolution. This door leads to ‘heaven’ or paradise – all green fields & forests. In this reality, humanity solves its dilemmas, works with the Earth to create a peaceful, sustainable society.

· Through the other door is hell -- rigidity in an effort maintain the status quo. This eventually leads to disintegration, because change is inevitable. If you fight change, it happens anyway, just more slowly and more painfully. This is the door to ‘hell’ – a fiery reality, because fire sets free the energy trapped by photosynthesis in wood. (This is why hell is always seen as fiery.) The disintegration sets free the energy in these souls to be reused, to evolve. This is the reality envisioned by "Mad Max".

I was told that 70% of humanity has chosen which door he/she will go through, and 30% has not yet chosen. Of the 70% who has chosen, 2/3 has chosen to evolve, and 1/3 has chosen to disintegrate. That is, about half of humanity has chosen to evolve, about 30% has not chosen and about 20% has chosen the door of stuckness/disintegration.

It is very difficult to change your choice once you have chosen. It is possible, but you’d have to change who you are to choose the other door.

It used to be that you could only walk through the door after you ‘died’. The Earth is vibrating faster now, and this is no longer true, but people still think it is true. Now you are actually encouraged to walk through while you still have a body.

There are a variety of reasons why people don’t walk through a door after they have chosen. They wonder

* Is it real?
* It looks okay, but is it? I’m still scared.
* Who will I be after I’ve walked through the door? How will I act?
* What will the world look like to me after I've walked through the door?
* Will I leave others behind? What happens to them?
* Does the door close behind me?

I am unclear as to what happens as more and more people walk through their chosen doors. It looks like the earth eventually splits in a kind of mitosis, into a faster vibrating Earth (the evolving Earth), and a slower vibrating Earth (the disintegrating Earth).

The Earth which vibrates more quickly will seem like the fabled Paradise, more green, more comfortable somehow, than today’s world. It still has its problems, of course, but humanity has decided to work together to solve them. Apparently this decision alone goes some way towards solving the problems, because Gaia feels our intention and works very hard to heal herself.

The Earth which vibrates more slowly will seem like an even more screwed up version of today’s world. The problems which exist now will have gotten worse – more pollution, more disease, more inequity, fewer resources to go around. There will probably be geophysical catastrophes to hasten the disintegration.

If I’ve chosen to evolve, and my neighbors haven’t, do they disappear from my world, and I from theirs? Or do we just never see each other? I don’t’ know. What happens to their house in my world, if they disappear? I don’t know. I have the sense that some of the splitting comes from migrations, that people who choose to evolve have already moved to, or will move to, places like the Bay Area. Does this explain all of it? I doubt it.

How long does this take? I don’t know. But I do know this:

The process of the Earth splitting is awkward and uncomfortable. At some level, everyone feels the bi-directional pull, and it makes us uncomfortable. People who have chosen to evolve feel the urgency of the situation, see ways out of it, and are moving towards those solutions. They are frustrated by, and have little patience with, those who have elected to try to maintain the status quo. People who have chosen the futile effort to maintain the status quo are frustrated and frightened by the inevitable prospect of change.

You can already see the awkwardness in those people who are doing anything in their power to stop change, and how polarizing they are. A good example is white supremacists, who would like to turn back the clock to an imagined better day when the US was mostly white. First, as most of us know, this is simply not going to happen. Second, because the white supremacists know this at some level, they feel very threatened – threatened to the point that they feel their best recourse is violence. This violent streak offends many, in fact, many more than those repulsed by their views alone. It’s hard to be neutral about someone who is willing to be violent to you for not agreeing with them. Thus these groups are even more polarizing than their views alone would warrant.

While these white supremacist groups are one example, you can see many others: watch the health care debate going on on Capitol Hill, where those who oppose change are willing to lie to (temporarily) thwart change. Watch any sort of so-called fundamentalist religious group, whose leaders twist the words of holy writings (mostly written millennia ago) to support their own beliefs, and their own amassing of power.

This choice of evolution/heaven or disintegration/hell is playing out every day in ways large and small. Just watch the news!
