Question: The next question is about competition in the Golden Age. How can I spiritualize what I do, spiritualize any of my activities?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Novosibirsk, Russia in 2017.
There will not be competition when we move fully into the Golden Age. The entire competitive consciousness that you see today is of course very dualistic and there will come a point where a critical mass of people will have transcended it, and companies will come to recognize that they can grow far more, they can manifest far more by cooperating than by competing. This does not mean that there will not be differences in terms of different companies focusing on different branches of industry, or different companies coming up with certain innovations. And so, it is not that all companies will cooperate, but those who have been in competition previously will recognize that they can gain more by cooperating, which does not necessarily mean that they merge.
And so, clearly this ties in with what I have said in recent dictations where the shift in mindset towards the Golden Age is very large and this means that very few of the people who are today in the leadership of companies can make this shift right now. They cannot even begin to grasp what the Golden Age is about because many of them could not imagine a situation where there was no competition. They in fact thrive on competition. They like to feel that they have beaten their competitors, or done better than their competitors and they feel that this is what motivates them, and industry or business would collapse without competition.
And so, this means that for you individually, there is little you can do to change this kind of environment. You can decide whether you want to work in this kind of environment. “What kind of person am I? What kind of environment do I want to work in? What kind of environment do I deserve to work in?” Or you can attempt to spiritualize it, and spiritualizing something means first of all, that first of all you are willing to look at yourself and see how that particular environment pulls you into a reactionary pattern. I am not encouraging that you remove yourself from a difficult situation in order to avoid the challenge. I am encouraging that you actually stay in a situation and seek to look at your reactionary patterns, look at your attachments, overcome those attachments, free yourself from the reactionary patterns so you can be in the environment without reacting. And then you are free to decide, “Now that I can actually be here, do I want to be here? Do I truly want to be here?”
If you make the decision that you do not want to be there, then most of you will find that within a short period of time, you begin to see something you had not seen before, which opens up an opportunity for you to change your environment and find another way to sustain yourself and your family, and this will even lead to increased spiritual growth in the long run. Take note that certainly the business environment will be changed in the Golden Age, but there are many businesses where you cannot expect to change this, or expect that it will change, in the immediate future.
