The Shift Is Happening Now
Section of an interview with Greg done by Wynn Free
Wynn: Our readers are going to want to know how they can
best face the changes that are coming in our world as a whole.
Gregg: I'll be as concise as I can. I think that the answer to that is perhaps
encapsulated best in the words of those who have come before us, the ancient Essenes, in a
text that's more than 2,500 years old. It reminds us of our relationship to the world
around us, and says simply that the world around us is nothing more and nothing less than
a mirror of what we have become from within.
So when we see a world that appears angry, cruel, and thoughtless, that produces suffering
for our brothers and sisters all over the world from this perspective, that world is a
mirror of what we have become as individuals, families, societies, and nations. It's not
right, wrong, good or bad. It's simply a reflection of who we are. The condition of the
planet is a feedback mechanism.
So if we want to see change in our world, we must become that
change in our every day lives. If we want to see peace, tolerant understanding,
compassion, and forgiveness at the global level, we must become that. At the dinner table.
With our families. We must become that with our schools.
We must demand that we be entertained through peace, compassion, and understanding. It
doesn't have to be dull and boring. It can still be very exciting, but it does not have to
be ruthless, thoughtless, cruel, or heartless.
So in our daily lives, every moment of every day, we make a choice that either affirms or
denies life in our bodies. Because we are linked through this grid. Our individual choices
all pool into the collective answer to our future.
If we'd like to see a collective change, we must individually become that change.
Wynn: We have this date of 2012 that many people are saying is this time of global shift
or Ascension. What do you think is going to happen?
Gregg The date 2012 is interesting because it comes up in Mayan traditions, Egyptian
traditions, some of the Christian traditions, and even in the Bible Code Ñ which is very
controversial unto itself.
My sense is this date could be any date. If we focus on a date and live our lives
preparing for a change on that date, we miss life. From my perspective, if we simply live
each day of our lives to its fullest, we reconcile the experiences that cross our paths
each day, we reconcile the opportunity to honor life, to honor our relationships with one
If we are honest, truthful, considerate, caring and compassionate, if we live this each
day, we have already prepared for whatever could possibly come on 2012 or any other day,
any other year, any time in our future.
I know people who are living their lives hoarding boxcars full
of food and ammunition, preparing for the day when our world changes. I understand, and I
think it's good to be self sufficient. I understand what they are saying. But also what
I've seen is that so much of their lives is dedicated to preparing for that day, they've
missed the beauty and the mystery of life that unfolds in every day. And it's in
perceiving this beauty and mystery that we prepare for the greatest challenges!
Wynn: So basically, if one wants to approach this change with the maximum positive outcome
for themselves, the key is to live each day with the maximum output of love, compassion,
Gregg: Yes, and to do this, we have to live each day consciously. Be aware of the
opportunities. Recognize the opportunities that cross our paths. Every day, we're given
the opportunity to be tolerant of another belief system, to forgive someone who has hurt
or angered us, to reconcile our own judgments about what should or should not be in our
If we can reconcile these things as they cross our paths and consciously deal with them in
the moment, then we know we're changing the chemistry of our bodies by changing the way we
feel, and are thus preparing ourselves for whatever transitions the earth is going to go
through. If that makes sense.
Wynn: Yes, it does to me. Is there anything really important to close with for our readers
that I might have missed?
Gregg: For the
first time in our history, the fate of our species, our entire species rests upon the
choices of a
