It may seem a strange title, given the events in the world. On the one hand, pervasive global political, environmental, and economic upheaval, and on the other, “Here Comes The Sun”???
Along with all the seeming chaos though, over the last fifty years or so has emerged a profound global interest in consciousness, or the practical study of who is really doing what to whom? 🙂
One of the benefits gained through the systematic exploration of consciousness by those actively undertaking such practices, is we know a lot more about our own nature than was available without such practices. This simple act of shedding light on the multiple layers of awareness, the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual aspects of ourselves, brings such components into Being, into our world. For example, see the endless stream of self-help books on just these topics. Fundamentally we become more and more universal, with regards to both time and space.
Once this universal nature within each of us becomes widely recognized in whatever way our given culture reflects it, the entire way humanity conducts itself begins to change. I emphasize begins to change. This global transformation is not based on the dramatic entrance of a supernatural being, or a cataclysm that descends leaving just the virtuous. This is the unhurried though unstoppable process of us waking up to our common nature, what makes us all more alike than different, the ability to unite in the face of our natural and multiplying diversity as humans.
It happens gradually, not buoyed by airy ideas, or on a foundation of ideologies, religious, political or economic. No, this transformation is occurring from the core of each of us. Not flashy, nothing to write about in the media, because it happens like all spiritual growth does, as an integrated process with holistic benefits. On a global scale, the Self, the universal nature is emerging, and this supports all proponents and students of our universal nature too.
The tide is turning in favor of faster karmic returns, so that if we act in accordance with our universal nature, success follows. If we are fully established in our universal nature, we no longer need be preoccupied with returning a good result from our actions. This leads right away to less fear, and a more peaceful world.
Here comes the sun 🙂
