Beyond all the celestial glitz of living full enlightenment or Brahman, the same human needs continue to apply. Two that come to mind during these fast moving times are safety and stability. Safety, or the need to feel protected, and stability, the desire to feel grounded and able, regardless of the situation faced.
With the saturation of collective consciousness affecting each of us, it can be an easy thing to capitulate into either fight or flight, destructive engagement, or distracting out. The waves that flow through us according to ever changing world events and the ever shifting context of them, tests each of us to our core. There is no escape from this enforced unity brought about by social media.
Not that there’s anything wrong with it, either. 🙂 We cannot tell exactly how the fabric of global creation will manifest moment to moment – even Mother Divine does not know this. However we can encompass all of global consciousness within our own awareness. Just know thyself, and multiply by eight billion. 🙂 In this way, there is no other, no fear, and the only question remaining is our degree of personal involvement, our choices, and our momentum.
We can only bring in the collective awareness within us once we have established our infinite and universal nature, beyond question. Otherwise it is like ingesting our own snarl of judgments, fears, and limitations, and cannot be accomplished cleanly and completely. However, by continuously transcending our limitations, remaining open to all of cosmic life, we can find a way to shut nothing out, while remaining resolute, calm and making progress, whatever the circumstances.
This comes not from control, but instead with more and more openness. As more of our everyday life is revealed to us, our thoughts, emotions, perceptions, and actions, then solutions make themselves evident, greater possibilities appear. Discovery cannot be accomplished by closing ourselves off to ourselves, only by an attitude of patience and acceptance.
Human beings are meant to live in this way, always transcending our greatest challenges and abilities. The process never stops, and is the straight road to incorporating the collective consciousness of the planet within our own awareness.
Then we are always safe within our infinite selves, and as stable as the cosmos. Despite the many stories to the contrary, humanity remains firmly in control of a brighter future, and it is up to each of us to fully engage this inevitable journey to greater fulfillment. 🙂
