The goal is one million awake aware adult human beings. This would be enough to change the world. Some changes in the world require massive group action. But others are a matter of individual growth, and those are the best focus: best for you, best for the world. Chains are no stronger than the weakest link. Don’t be that link.
The major tool is the concept of balance. The most basic balances I see are:
- Body, mind, emotions
- Child, Parent, Grandparent
If you resolve the apparent dualities, allow the same “energies” to manifest on different levels, I think you have a pretty healthy human being.
- “Awakening the kundalini backwards.” The major mistake here is to construct reality from a concept rather than actual experience. If you don’t understand how powerfully our emotional filters prevent us from crunching real-world data you can easily mistake ignorance for knowledge. SOLUTION: start either from love, or from an alive body with full hungers activated.
- Not loving our “child” (or “heart”) enough to commit to protecting her at all costs–including growing the #$%% up. Asking other adults to be our mommies and daddies. This is a dinner bell for predators, and you are going to be very unhappy with life. Artists fall into this so easily it makes me weep. SOLUTION: Heal this damage, and commit to being all you need emotionally. That frees you to have adult non-codependent relationships.
- Forgetting that there are both direct and indirect forms of force. And that a good, creative person denied direct influence will find indirect influence. And so will a malign snake. The indirect is harder to see, and this is a tough one for people to see. If you don’t start with an assumption of equality, then ask: “well, if…?” about the apparent issues, you’ll get lost in the politics rapidly. But if we’re equal…then those things that free women will also free men, in some amazing ways most people can’t even see. All I can say is this: if women’s power REALLY diminishes men, this is going to get bloody as hell. But I believe that that is the nightmare, not the reality. SOLUTION: See how women would act like men, and men act like women, if the positions were reversed. The same souls having different experiences.
Sleeping Children–>Sleeping adults.
Within the dream we can function as adults (taking responsibility for emotions and actions) without awakening to the illusions we accepted in order to function as individuals or societies. For instance, the South is awakening from such a dream, and it is painful: they needed slavery, and needed to justify it with a myth of inferiority. America didn’t really awaken from this nightmare until about 1970. IF then.
Mankind as a whole is awakening from a dream in which women are seen as inferior by men…and vice versa. Make no mistake, both sides do this crap. From my perspective we made a deal 10k years ago, and the agreement was that women’s external dreams were disposable, and men’s lives were disposable. It worked great for producing maximum grandchildren, but sucked for men and women.
We can make better choices now. Move forward. Become Angels with computer chips built on the chassis of killer apes.
Man, I like that notion. But we have to resolve the dualities to reclaim our real potential for thought, love, and physical excellence. I think its worth it.
But first, we have to wake up. Repeat after me:
I AM MADE OF THE SAME STUFF AS THE STARS. NO ONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN BORN IS ANY BETTER THAN ME, AND I AM NO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO LOVE, AND HEALTH, AND HAPPINESS, AND THE RESPONSIBILITY TO SHARE MY LIGHT WITH THE WORLD.
That is how I see you. Oh, and that “angel with a computer chip on the chassis of a killer ape” thing. Yeah, that too.
