If consciousness is the ‘awareness of yourself and the world around you’, it must surely evolve as new experiences impact our self-perceptions and world perspectives.
During the past 22 months this ever-changing pandemic experience has certainly impacted everyone’s consciousness. Our sense of Self is mutating, just like the virus, threatening our physical and emotional health. We’re recognizing large voids of unfulfilled needs, in both our personal and professional relationships we hadn’t been ready to address previously. We’ve needed to physically extract ourselves from a life-threatening outer world, which has provided more perspective and clarification of who we are becoming as a human collective.
Here in America, individuals have been given unthinkable presidential permission to become more violent and narcissistic. This encouragement, of less humaneness, has activated a defiance of social order and exposed the greatest fault line in the human character-Hubris. Those who believe they know more than Source (or the gods) regress into a primitive form of Unconscious PTSD. Their reactions reduce their impulse control and diminish any anger management backstops they once possessed, keeping them in a militaristic survival mode.
We watch as this minority of predominantly men, force an autocratic social order onto us all, replacing The Divine Celestial order of ’Right Action’. Humane mottos (“One for all and all for one”, “No Man left behind”, “All men are created equal in the eyes of the Lord”), and models (humanitarianism, democracy, philanthropy), no longer guide these extremists. If not abated this hubristic minority will decide humanity’s future interactions, laws and orders, to reflect their “me first” Masculine code.
Those more evolved humans understand the gift of ’Right Action’. How innately it aligns with Celestial Order in the present moment, to create humane, conscious experiences and responses. In this state, one’s motivation comes out of love and empathy for the human condition, and a desire for peace, calm, and sustained win-win relationships.
A new archetypally integrated (Masculine with the Feminine) dimension of consciousness is needed to balance our primordial fear of this abstract unknown. We must strive for higher levels of consciousness to enhance our self-trust, so when individually or collectively called upon, we can respond with win-win right-action scenerios. This is a very tall order for a population who currently operates from its unconscious, thriving on conspiracy theories, misinformation and alternative facts. We’ve been shocked by this minority’s over-reach and attempted retraction of Constitutional, Federal and State laws. (i.e. abortion, abusive policing, voters’ rights and defiance of mandated health orders to save lives).
Are they truly unable to see the reality they are creating (ever intensifying flood, drought, and fire-ravaging climate disasters, unnecessary pandemic deaths, extinction of “God’s creatures, poisoning of our air, water, and soil)?
Meanwhile we will stay trapped in this intense dualistic battle between the Celestial (collective/centralized) and MANmade (Individual/decentralized) Social Orders while MANkind’s unrestrained freewill trumps our collective responsibility, to conform when necessary, do no harm, and preserve our human species.
