Conciousness, Our Potential for Self-Transformation Through Awareness
we have sensitivity, we don’t need conscience,
when we have consciousness,
we don’t need the conscience.”

The exploration and
development of human consciousness could lead us from the acceleration
of technological evolution engaging us into a Spiritual one provided
that we wake up and develop the wisdom that will transform our minds
using our new powers for the sake of everyone’s survival and
all of life on the planet. The greatest obstacle we are confronted
with is how we divide ourselves’ from others and with life’s
species. We pull apart and destroy instead of honoring and coming
together in unity. It seems that when natural disasters or wars
occur we bind together only motivated out of greed and mutual self-interest.
We have yet to see that the currency of war is human life.
A closed mindset is
stabilized through complacency by holding a mental attitude that
our efforts to change will not make a difference in the world. It
divides any potential for unity consciousness sidestepping our collective
purpose and moving quickly into the comfort zone of our minds. Change
starts from within, not without our selves and because we are all
agents of change the shift requires a willingness to experience
something new by confronting our conditioning, the root of fear
within ourselves. Alas, we continue to seek the desire to stay separate
from others from the outside world and the whole universe. Our chaotic
inner selves' reflect the truth back to us through our chaotic external
world. Yet we still complain and refuse to change, we forever find
justifications acting out of ignorance that causes harm. What will
it take for the Human Heart to surrender to its origins, the undivided
nature of Self? How much must we lose before we finally understand
that to empower ourselves', does not mean taking power from others?
There is nothing more important than this revolutionary need for
change, no maximization of money or power or self interest could
ever take priority, let alone exist, for without the earth to manifest
we are merely energy seeking form someplace else!
Awareness is our only
way out and our potential for healing. We must realize that what
stands between ourselves' and different lives are matters of response-ability
and choice. Choice gives us the power to change where our inner
revelation becomes an outer reality! Paving our way through the
journey of conscious living we develop wisdom in our choices. When
we choose consciously, we evolve consciously as when we choose unconsciously,
we evolve unconsciously. I find that people want free choice, but
want no obligation towards the outcome of their choices and still
expect absolution when things have gone awry. Each decision that
we make is an answer to the question of how we choose to live life.
Whether through love or fear we create that reality through intention
and the energy invested behind it. Our decisions and actions are
means by which we evolve on earth into greater consciousness. With
every choice that we make in alignment with the energy of our spirit
we fuel our passage into authentic power. Self-empowerment is thus
earned choice by choice.
As we move into awareness
we observe the inherent juxtaposition of apparent contradictions
expressed within ourselves' in context to Global society and our
natural world. We bring the extremes within ourselves into balance.
Equally, we recognize the monumental shifts in balance that are
occurring in Nature and Kosmological processes. Harnessing the foundation
of this basic wisdom liberates us into deeper authenticty and brings
us closer to nature. Empowered in Self and supported by Universal
Principle we no longer deny that we are too small to make changes
occur, as each individual is essential in making a difference! We
see the world as a learning environment where everything serves
a purpose for higher growth. At each moment we understand the value
of choice and the value of focusing our attention on our creative
efforts. Of finding eco-friendly ways to sustain our lives in this
century and for the future of our families.
The failure of our
hearts to respond deeply to this collective call to change transcends
the political process and ideology. Turning a blind eye shows horrific
signs of humanities moral and spiritual level as a real lack in
evolution and the prediction of devastation where there is no possibility
of our species surviving. It is time to wake up out of complacency.
What will you do?
