Our global consciousness is acting like someone driving an automobile in an unfamiliar place, and we have missed our turn-off. So before anything else, we must bring the auto to a complete stop, and then reverse the entire vehicle, and then turn towards the correct destination. Although it is just a course correction, the magnitude of the enterprise is global and Cosmic.
Given the endless number of activities we engage in on the planet, this happens gradually, and in stages. First the evident bankruptcy of our past ways of living become more obvious, fueled by climate extremes, political unrest, economic inequality, and widespread disease vectors. A squabble in the family. 🙂
Next, our attention becomes immersed in these large imbalances, and we messily work our way into a more enlightened perspective globally. This isn’t so much an awakening of consciousness at first, vs. being manipulated by Cosmic might into doing the right things, like a compassionate Mother being firm with Her children.
If we extrapolate our future from the cataclysmic events now occurring, we can join the throngs of those predicting calamity for our earth and it’s population. But these are distorted visions, failing to take into account the lively conscious engagement with Divinity also now occurring on earth, and it’s effects.
This is very widespread, this en masse engagement, a deep thirst for relief and safety, and the ability to thrive. Especially on the backdrop of such huge events as are now occurring world-wide, many recognize the need to find refuge within, to varying degrees.
What has changed? The practical knowledge and action of Totality has emerged. Where we once had endless threads of knowledge leading in disparate directions, now we have the leadership of Cosmic life, enlivened within so many, bringing us forward together, even despite our efforts to the contrary. 🙂
This newfound responsiveness of Cosmic life, and Divinity brings unification and completion into all of our efforts. Bringing a strong infusion of sattva, allowing us to spiral upwards, instead of relentlessly chasing ourselves around a deteriorating track or worse.
Thankfully our major issues manifest as environmental, coming from our interactions with the natural world and within ourselves, and are not primarily motivated by political consideration. So an escalation of finger-pointing around the globe is blunted in favor of cooperation to solve our planetary concerns; a growing awareness of our ‘spaceship earth’.
A Oneness in the midst of dynamic diversity begins to emerge from our difficulties, leading to enduring and practical solutions. As redemption and completion take hold, balancing ourselves one by one, we begin to regain ownership of our Dharma and our global future.
Thank you, all 🙂
