It seems that the human world is moving into a new phase of instability. The old order [that’s to say the principles and programmes that have been running things through our national, cultural and social institutions] is crumbling. It started to decline in the last half of the twentieth century, that decline is now becoming more and more obvious.
In the past it’s been more comfortable to comply with the dominant programmes of the collective, even though they insist on suppressing your truth, rather than to challenge them and stand in your own authenticity. Where we are now is at the point where it’s more uncomfortable to go along with the old ways than to engage with our own authenticity and find ways to express that. This is a tipping point for human consciousness.
The world’s populations have been programmed and controlled through fear for age upon age. Social historians and critics offer plenty of analysis, but the largely self-inflicted suffering of humanity continues. And fear predominates.
However, the strategy of fear is losing its impact. The consequence of this is that the fear level is being escalated so as to maintain control. One of the strategies for this is the current fashion for security, which speaks directly to survival issues. But this escalation is actually self-defeating as it’s showing the cracks in the social order ever more clearly.
The control that’s been imposed on humanity for so long is executed through distraction from the authentic essence of being [the Divine Brilliance] that inhabits each and every one of us. That distraction is implemented through the imprinting of fear supported by institutionalised false negative belief systems that invalidate you – or outlaw you – for non-compliance.
The effects of this form of psychological oppression are multiplied when they trigger the negative emotions of resignation, resentment, despondency and despair – more emotional distraction from your true nature.
The Creative Challenge
This is a fantastic time to be alive. What we’re witnessing and sharing in is a transition of enormous significance. It is, however, also a precarious situation. As the old order of consciousness collapses the vacuum created is very attractive to alternative forces of oppression, typified in the rise of right wing extremist politics. So although the opportunity for transformation is unprecedented it is also more insistent. There is a choice to be made.
That choice is to take full responsibility for creating the reality you live in. It’s a choice that’s always been available, throughout history, but the consequences of ignoring it haven’t been as explicit as they are now. If you want things to change, then you have to change in yourself.
The challenge, as I see it, is that there is little coherence in a collective vision for the future. Most of what seems on offer is either an amalgamation of old energy utopian concepts, or a revision of the present control systems with a more palatable aspect that ostensibly seek to put right whatever is wrong. In short we can’t actually see where we’re going because it’s a form of existence we have no experience of. This is fearful in itself and plays into the mistrust we have of governments, of people, of life … and ourselves.
To paraphrase Albert Einstein: we cannot create a solution to our present situation with the level of thinking that created the problems with that situation. We have to be different. We have to evolve.
Transform Yourself – Transform Your World
The way through all of this is to ground into the flow of your own Divine Brilliance. You do this as follows:
- Appreciate all the blessings that you personally enjoy – and have enjoyed.
- Focus on what brings you peace and an expanded feeling of joy in your heart.
- From this place bless everyone else in the world with compassion and kindness as they follow the life they choose to lead.
This will increase your immunity to the old forms of social psychological oppression. It will shift the level of consciousness you operate from. It will support others to shift their operational level of consciousness.
This is the way a reality will emerge that reflects a consciousness rooted in love and compassion. Universal Law applies: As within, so without. It will take us beyond our present capacity to imagine our ideal existence.
“Imagine there’s no countries … It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for … And no religion, too
Imagine all the people … Living life in peace …”
~ Imagine / John Lennon
