And now the analysis:
I do not have an insider or direct source for the meanings below. This is my interpretation of the update, based on extrapolation and contextual usage of the terms. The meanings provided are not the only ones that can be gleaned; in my view, all meanings have value, especially when shared and discussed openly. Please comment below if interested, I'd love to hear other's thoughts on this material.
Consider that when two nations war against each other, their individual goals of conquest create a consciousness of separation. Each nation wants to overpower and dominate another, yet the opposing society does not want to to be conquered, as such, these goals are inherently harmful, dishonorable and self-serving. As a result, they are mutually exclusive, meaning, only one nation can be the victor, not both. And so long as this desire or goal to conquer is given life, the people who labor under it will suffer. This could arguably be a selfish and self-serving desire, again founded on separation consciousness. As such, when the causes of these effects have changed, when separation consciousness has been transcended, desires change, and the actions which were needed to realize them also change. In this case, stealth movements are no more. This statement seems to be referring to the fact that in order to change effects, one must change the causes; and the causes of suffering, disempowerment, and disease are separation consciousness, expressed in the statement as a stealthy movement.
"Darkness faded by the Inner Light." - Here we have a further refinement of the concept of transmutation of the physical or manifested world by way of inner change. In the preceding statement, an inference was made to the fact that before one can change the effects, one must change the cause. Stealth movements are effects, a behavior or action, and as such, the cause is internal or the stuff of consciousness. Here darkness seems to be a reference to unconsciousness, nescience or ignorance—a lack of knowledge, insight or wisdom. This darkness is fading as a result of Inner Light. Symbolically we can assume that Inner Light is a reference to awareness or the conscious mind. When we focus our Inner Light on something, we are becoming conscious of it. But more precisely, Inner Light is a way of looking out from within. That is to say, all external events, experiences and happenings have an internal or metaphysical effect on consciousness. But rarely do we consider these inner changes when interacting the outworld of things and beings. Yet it is this inner world that should arguably be our greatest concern because when we cast the light of our awareness inward when we ask ourselves "how is this external experience affecting me and my internal process?" we nurture a consciousness of empowerment. Laying hold of the truth within, changes us, dispelling the darkness which holds us back. Once this has been done, we can properly observe ourselves in the world, and make changes to our beingness so as to transcend limitation, fear, and suffering.
"Half measures are discarded, as fullness of Light incorporates." - A half measure is an action or policy that is inadequate or ineffective in achieving an end, a token gesture. For example, if one is unhealthy due to the consumption of processed food stuffs, replacing them with whole raw foods would be a full measure whereas reducing consumption is a half measure—there is no safe amount of poison to consume. In our world today, humanity is plagued by half measures and token gestures and one of the best examples being charities. Most people probably recognize that the world is in disarray and needs to be restored back to health, yet instead of personally participating in this process, we delegate this to institutions that allow us to feel as if we are contributing, but in truth, we are not. And these so-called charities, by and large, have very little effect in changing the status quo. In most cases, such as curing cancer, these institutions actually allow the causal consciousness of disempowerment to be maintained, meaning, instead of people researching and understanding the true causes and cures of cancer, they willfully maintain ignorance believing "someone else" is doing that for them. In it's grandest conceptual expression, a half measure is an expression of separation consciousness, either due to nescience or out right ignorance. Yet these are now being discarded, as fullness of Light incorporates.
As we discussed above, Light is symbolic of true knowledge or wisdom, which is complete by nature; and since it is incorporating in fullness, any half measure of the past will seem undesirable with this new perspective. On the other hand, false knowledge lies, or deceptions are incomplete truths, which facilitate a half measure of understanding. The term incorporate here is very aptly placed in my view, because its phonetic components suggest the following meaning: in-corp-orate, in - meaning internal, corp - meaning corporeal, real or objective (manifest), and orate - meaning to speak. Incorporate translates to: to make real through speaking, and this dialog of speech is internal in nature. When we realize the truth, an internal process of synthesis takes place, a blending, and merging of the old with the new. In the process, half measures, token gestures, and false beliefs can be recognized and cleared away. This statement seems to be suggesting that this process is occurring, and with it, comes a shift in desires and goals. No longer are token gestures seen as the path of least resistance, and instead, individuals seek for real change. All of this is made possible by an inner shift in consciousness as a result of making contact with the fullness of a truth.
"Stories are told for all to enjoy." - A story being told suggests a final expression or culmination of the transformation process being outlined in this update, that of internal change made possible as a result of inner awareness. Consider that most advents of personal change come about as a result of some kind of crisis or challenge, which does not have to be negative in nature. We may have formed a habit that seems beneficial at the time, but after carefully considering the fullness of its effects, an internal change takes place. This internal shift causes an outer change in our behavior, which is seen as productive, becomes grounded. For example, we may have labored under a food addiction for years, suffering poor health as a result, but after finally coming to terms with the truth, we change and now feel accomplishment as a result. This success can now be shared with others as a story for them to enjoy, becoming a beacon of light and inspiration. In other words, when we share of ourselves, when we pour our wisdom out for all to drink from, we become agents of change, restoring balance to a world hindered by separation. Conversely, when we try to hide and keep secret our wisdom, stealthily moving through life, no one can benefit from the fruit of our experience, and all suffer from half measures.
This update seems to be highlighting a theme of personal transformation as a result of an inner change, which is then expressed outwardly as an inspiration for others. When we actually find the courage to share our experiences with others, we benefit from their insight and perspective, while also catalyzing the experience for ourselves. In most cases, the simple act of expressing ourselves feels good, especially if it is something we feel self-conscious of. But often the fear of being vulnerable is founded on a separation consciousness, which can be transcended if one makes a step in transparency.
PS - In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn't sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know, that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.
Note about meanings: The meanings offered are my attempt to objectify the Gaia Portal updates, to give them a scientifically supported basis in reality. However, the subjective process of reading the update personally is incredibly valuable, and meanings generated in each respect are not mutually exclusive (in conflict with each other). I suggest reading the update, like a tool for divination as if it was written specifically for you; similar to a psychic reading. Your meanings may not match what I share, but that does not mean one is more 'correct' than another. All meanings have value, depending on the context which is applied to them, all perspectives have a place within the whole of what IS, and therefore, can be part of an exploration of one's self. Our perspective is intimately connected to all others.
