An Evolved Consciousness Sees the World Differently
As we observe people, we see the great differences among us. People range from loving and compassionate humanitarians to that of extreme greed and selfishness. Today it would seem that the gap is greater than ever before. And indeed it is. This does not necessarily mean that people have become greedier or more uncaring – tho new technology, war machinery and media would make it seems so. The vast difference is due to the millions of people who are experiencing an evolutionary shift in Consciousness. This is the end where the gap is widening.
As people experience an awakening Consciousness they see the greater picture of who we are, and our interconnectedness to one another. They see as tho through new eyes – eyes of compassion and love. Whereas before they could be indifferent or uncaring – now that is not possible. Theirs is a deep knowing that there is a new and better way to live, and feel compelled to do their part to bring it about.
What then is the difference between the selfish and the loving individual? It is their level of Consciousness. An evolved Consciousness is an expanded version of oneself as part of a whole, rather than separate. Love is the force that evolves us. Forgiveness is a given, gratitude is joy expressed.
As Consciousness expands, all aspects of fear fall away. This includes the fear of death. From this greater vantage, we recognize dying as the doorway to our greater Consciousness – as we release our body, we re-merge back into our glorious Spirit self, and to a level of Consciousness accessible only beyond our physical experience. We also see birth as leaving our greater Conscious Self, to temporarily experience our next amazing human adventure.
This level of consciousness – Cosmic Consciousness, is not a new phenomenon. Throughout history our greatest spiritual teachers such as Jesus and Buddha experienced a profound Consciousness shift that changed them from ordinary to extra-ordinary teachers of love and compassion. What is new, is the global magnitude of those now shifting in unison into greater Consciousness.
Any who have experienced this level of Consciousness are irrevocably and forever changed. Their memory has been awakened, their Consciousness heightened, and they live in the joy of the human experience regardless of how it looks from the ordinary conscious state.
An evolving consciousness has an expanded sense of wholeness which includes a connection and love for all things. We begin to see the world and life around us differently, and feel things we have never before felt.
We see animals as intelligent fellow beings who have incarnated into physical form with us to experience life on this planet. Like us they have a great capacity for life’s joys, and a deep love for their young – some even mating for life. Without agenda, their unconditional love and loyalty can extend to us. The thought of eating them as food becomes unthinkable.
We see the earth as a living, breathing being, supporting our life system and experience. We bask in its exquisite beauty, its glorious sunrises and sunsets, its expansive blue oceans, and majestic mountains, and desert plains. Like a mother, it nourishes and supports us if we but love it back.
Our heart grieves when we look upon mountains sheared of their trees, at great caverns cut deep into the earth to mine coal, where oil rigs suck out the richness of earth’s blood, using it to pollute the very air we breathe. When we see the rain forests, once beautiful and lush and sustaining us, now nearly dead with struggling efforts to live and breathe, we feel as though our very flesh has been ripped open, for our connection to the earth is deep. When we see great war machinery moving in to kill and maim we can hardly breathe, for we are feeling what their targets are feeling.
We also see the humans we are becoming as we evolve. We know that nothing is lost, nothing is really out of control. What we see are the birth pangs of a birthing and awakening to the next level of the human experience. We see and feel it all…from the anguish to the ecstasy as we shift from one level of consciousness to the next.
The evolving human is us. We are becoming more. We are aware that our beingness extends far beyond our physical bodies to include all else, and with this knowing, are compelled to fulfill our part in this planetary shift into a more joyful and loving world.
We feel the ecstasy of our own becoming, and great joy as in every moment more and more are reaching this threshold of Consciousness to join us as we create a new culture – a new world of love and sharing.
As we move swiftly into 2012, humanity is reaching the tipping point where we could loose it all – or we could gain our greatest dreams. My heart tells me that we are already tipping into the welcoming arms of our joyous evolved selves.
