SOS BOOK - Chapter 2.4 A primitive global Consciousness
Technologically and scientifically we are quite advanced. Yet our global consciousness, the essence of our human collective, has remained so primitive.
HUMANITY IS PREDOMINANTLY STILL SELFISH & LIVES IN ‘SURVIVAL MODE’.
That’s not much better than stone-age savages! Our technology is now of the space age, but our level of group consciousness, from a global perspective, belongs back in more primitive times. Why do you think this is so? What can we do to improve this? Ponder these questions for a while.
WE URGENTLY NEED TO RAISE HUMANITY’S LEVEL OF AWARENESS.
We need to elevate our global consciousness rating to a cosmic level. Let’s try to better understand this concept. It might help if we imagine we’re being judged & graded from afar: being assessed as one human collective on the planet.
GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS IS OUR RATING OF COOPERATIVE SUCCESS AS A PLANETARY SPECIES. It’s how much we have collectively grown up! It’s how compassionately we care about our whole planet and all its inhabitants. Enough global consciousness is also a prerequisite for benevolent interaction with other off-world civilizations.
As individuals, we can easily overlook our own personal need for awareness & consciousness. This is usually because our lives are so busy & preoccupied with material success. This is called service to self! Even individuals aspiring to higher consciousness may not fully appreciate what is needed.
THE SPIRITUAL IDEAL IS LIVING IN SERVICE TO OTHERS. There is a lasting happiness & joy that comes from doing just that! Global consciousness is the summation of all those individual achievements in cooperation & caring for others.
Humans on earth have otherwise progressed so much. THE DEFICIT OF GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS IS EMERGING AS OUR GREATEST HUMAN NEED. We now need this for the survival of our human race and to prevent the destruction of our planet’s ecosystems.
WE ARE DOING IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO OUR PLANET & ITS SPECIES.
We are for example causing a major mass extinction event of animal & insect species. It’s caused by all our collective decisions & actions. Are we prepared to accept this reality?
WE HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE! We can embrace a new world Consciousness and wisely utilize our great technologies. Alternatively, we can continue with our primitive ways: our self-serving ways - our aggressive and materialistic strategies. These policies promote the waging of wars, not the winning of worldwide peace.
The agents of our global self-destruction are not just nuclear, biological or chemical. They are the everyday social, moral & philosophical values that we practice daily in our local society.
ACCEPTING INAPPROPRIATE OR SELFISH VALUES, DIVIDES & DESTROYS OUR WORLD.
This cripples its peoples and eventually will devastate our planet. We potentially destroy ourselves & our ecosystems by destroying the spirit of global cooperation, harmony and love.
LIVING IN SEPARATENESS & TRIBAL ISOLATION LEADS TO A PHYSICAL & SPIRITUAL WASTELAND.
Currently we are tackling global issues with the most primitive levels of planetary awareness: levels hardly befitting the term ‘higher consciousness’. A desperate need exists for such global consciousness, for the survival of our planet and the true blossoming of our species. Will we do this for our fragile world and our frail humanity?
Our current meager level of planetary Consciousness may not be enough to guarantee the survival of our species. Some researchers have presented the statistical likelihood of our planetary survival in the form of a ‘doomsday clock’. The clock is winding down to midnight – which symbolically represents the time of our time of planetary destruction. This ‘doomsday clock’ estimation is regularly updated and accessible on the Internet.
IT’S WORRYING TO FIND HUMANITY’S CHANCE OF SURVIVAL ON THIS PLANET TO BE SO SLIM.
Very few people fully appreciate this! Even fewer then act on this! Imagine what collateral damage is meanwhile occurring to the planet’s ecosystem, and to our level of wellbeing. Yet most governments & leaders either ignore this urgent need or offer some token gesture. Worse still, they promote a materialistic & control-based solution such as a global tax.
SELF INTEREST IS THE ENEMY! If we promote the self-interest of corporations, nation-states or controllers of any kind, then we become part of the problem . If we allow the advancement of the most cunning and ruthless leaders, for material gain, this will be at the expense our humanity. In doing this, we facilitate the destruction of mankind and our fragile planet.
BY PROMOTING SEPARATENESS WE ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERING GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS. This just generates more resentment & hatred. It builds anger and violence. We thus increase the chances of our final destruction through some nuclear or biological attack or through terrorism. We risk ruining or poisoning our planet, perhaps forever. We unknowingly contribute to this destructive process through our lack of awareness.
THE FUTURE RESIDES WITH EACH OF US AND OUR INDIVIDUAL CHOICES.
We all contribute an individual input to collective consciousness. THE LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL IS SO VALUABLE. Each individual also influences others around them.
Global Consciousness is the energy of connection, cooperation and harmony. THIS MEANS TAKING ALL PERSPECTIVES INTO ACCOUNT & WORKING FOR THE BETTERMENT OF ALL. Hopefully we now have enough motivation to change. This change starts by raising our own individual awareness & Consciousness as outlined in this ‘SOS book’.
