Computer technologies, multiplying our abilities and extending our senses, are now critical to our safety, health, longevity, prosperity, and sense of connection to ourselves and each other. By providing so many avenues for fulfillment, computers also create a faster, larger world for all of us, without any secrets or boundaries. Our responsibility as global citizens is magnified.
This has implications everywhere – every avenue of human endeavor is being exposed, and reconsidered, rebuilt and reconfigured. The toppling of edifices of secrecy and exclusion occurs globally now, leaving fewer and fewer spaces to hide anything. It is impossible to silence the light of billions of voices expressing themselves now – locally, communally, nationally, regionally, and globally.
At the same time, personal and social life continues at a furious pace, driven by interconnected networks running the fastest processors and switches, backed by an estimated 3 exabytes* of data stored on-line, and growing exponentially (*one exabyte [EB] is 1K petabytes [PB], one petabyte is 1K terabytes [TB], and each terabyte equals 1K gigabytes [GB], and one gigabyte is a billion bytes of data).
The four largest brokers of our personal data now store, sell, and mine an estimated 1.2 exabytes of data between them, with software capturing up to six thousand parameters on every person on-line, a database populated at last count with 1.2 Billion of us.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for all of us to use the lever of social media to raise the earth up. Enlivening our collective spirituality based on Archimedes’ principle of the lever, using the fulcrum of consciousness. Raise the consciousness, and raise the planet closer to our Divine values.
Words and thoughts are comprised of focus and energy, leading to manifestation. Simply by producing a deep and accurate description of Reality, Totality, through social media is all it takes. Advertising provides ample evidence of this to sell dog food and toothpaste, and the same is true with “selling” Reality.
Rather than feeling overwhelmed by the endless blending of cultures, ideas, initiatives, proposals, power plays, intentions, arts, sciences, fears and joys expressed on-line, our Silence, the Divinity within us seizes the opportunity to express the truth of life, the potential of life, Totality, now globally. Supporting this engine of Divine expression are the silent meditations of millions, collectively releasing the purifying effect of billions of mantras into the global consciousness.
Rather than becoming lost in the rainbow and chaos of so many voices, the natural organizing power of the Self, of Being, of Divinity, of Brahman allows the voice of itself to be heard in any environment, harmonizing with the global chorus.
With the intense global interest shown in every form of spiritual endeavor, a foundation of Silence, of Being has been growing for some time in the collective consciousness. This continues to allow spiritually oriented ideas and feelings, birthed from Being, to permeate the cultures of the world, Oneness begins to take hold.
Just as our lives have grown from Being within to Unity in the world, so now we enliven a deeper yet complementary spectrum, moving from the Divinity within each of us, to a seamless relationship with Divinity in our world. Moving into the future, we go back to our beginning, bringing Heaven on Earth through our Selves, our Being, our Divinity, and the gift of communications technology.
This nascent process of marrying communications technology for the realization of Brahman, Full Enlightenment, was begun by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and it now quickly finds its global fruition. He did not see the future, He created it. 🙂
