DHP: I think the only way to shift human consciousness is to take responsibility for the individual energy we put out everyday. If we get too upset about what is going on in the world right now, we forget that individually we have the power to affect the planet everyday just by meditating, loving peace, having an open heart and letting ourselves be seen.
