EVOLUTION OF SELF



EVERY ONE THAT IS ON A SPIRITUAL PATH OR EMBARKING AND/OR SEEKING A SPIRITUAL PATH IS EVOLVING. SO WE MUST NOW BRING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF EVOLUTION INTO ALIGNMENT, TO SEE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE DO THIS, BECAUSE OUR CURRENT UNDERSTANDING IS REFLECTING A PHASE OF EVOLUTION WE ARE NOW LEAVING.

BY UNDERSTANDING THIS, WE CAN PERCEIVE HOW WE HAVE EVOLVED TO THE "NOW", AND SEE THE PROCESS OF WHAT WE ARE LEAVING BEHYND. WE HAVE BEEN UNTIL THE POINT OF ACCEPTING OUR SPIRITUAL PATH OR SEEKING OUR SPIRITUAL PATH A 5 SENSES BEING. THAT PATH OF EVOLUTION, (FROM THE MOMENT AS A CHILD TO OUR CURRENT ADULTHOOD) ALLOWED US TO SEE THE BASIC OF THE UNIVERSE IN CONCRETE WAYS. WE SEE AND LEARN FOR EVERY ACTION IS A "CAUSE" THAT HAS AN "AFFECT", AND THAT EVERY AFFECT HAS A CAUSE.

WE CAN SEE THAT RAGE CAN KILL, IT TAKES AWAY THE BREATH OF LIFE.WE CAN SEE KINDNESS NURTURES. WE SEE AND FEEL THE DIFFERENCE OF A SNARL AND A SMILE. WITH THESE ACTIONS, WE HAVE PROCESSED KNOWLEDGE.

WE ALSO SEE WHEN ACTIVITIES OF LIFE ARE INFUSED WITH REVERENCE, THE ACTIVITIES BECOMES ALIVE WITH MEANING AND PURPOSE. WE ALSO CAN SEE WHERE REVERENCE IS LACKING IN LIFE'S ACTIVITIES THE RESULTS ARE CRUELTY,VIOLENCE, AND LONELINESS. SO THE PHYSICAL WORLD WE LIVE IS A GREAT TEACHER. IT IS A SCHOOL THRU EXPOSURE, AND EXPERIMENTATION. BY THIS WE SEE AND UNDERSTAND WHAT CAUSES US TO EXPAND AND GROW, AND WHAT CAUSES US TO CONTRACT.

WHEN THE PHYSICAL WORLD IS ONLY SEEN THRU THE 5 SENSES, THE BASIC DRIVE IS "PHYSICAL SURVIVAL". SO WE EVOLVE IN THIS SCENARIO, AND THE RESULTS IS "SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST".

PHYSICAL DOMINANCE IS THEN REGARDED AS "ADVANCED EVOLUTION".

BY LIMITING OUR VIEWS/PERCEPTIONS BY THE 5 SENSES, THE BASIC OF LIFE IN THE PHYSICAL ARENA BECOMES "FEAR". THE NEED FOR "PHYSICAL DOMINANCE PRODUCES COMPETITION THAT AFFECTS EVERY PART AND ASPECTS OF OUR LIVES." IT AFFECTS RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN LOVERS, HUSBAND AND WIVES, BETWEEN SUPERPOWERS, BETWEEN SIBLINGS, BETWEEN RACES, BETWEEN CLASSES AND BETWEEN SEXES. THIS ACTIONS DISRUPTS HARMONY BETWEEN FRIENDS AND NATIONS. THE SAME "ENERGY" THAT SENT WARSHIPS TO THE PERSIAN SENT CRUSADERS TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

IT IS THE SAME ENERGY THAT SENT OSWALD TO KILL KENNEDY, PITTED CAIN AGAINST ABEL. SAME ENERGY THAT BROTHERS AND SISTERS QUARREL, AND CORPORATIONS AGAINST EACH OTHER.............THEY SEEK "POWER OVER ANOTHER"......PHYSICAL DOMINANCE. THE POWER TO CONTROL IS A BASIC HUMAN DRIVE. LOOK AROUND IN YOUR WORLD AND YOU WILL SEE THIS CLEARLY. THIS POWER OF CONTROL CAN BE FELT, TASTED, SMELLED, HEARD, AND SEEN, BY OUR 5 SENSES.

THIS POWER IS CALLED EXTERNAL POWER......

IT CAN BE ACQUIRED, LOST, AS IN STOCK MARKET OR AN ELECTION. IT CAN BE BOUGHT, STOLEN, TRANSFERRED, AND EVEN INHERITED. ONE PERSON GAIN ON EXTERNAL POWER IS SEEN AS ANOTHER PERSON'S LOSS. THE RESULT OF EXTERNAL POWER IS VIOLENCE AND DESTRUCTION.

ALL OF OUR INSTITUTIONS, SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, AND POLITICAL SHOWS UNDERSTANDING OF POWER BEING EXTERNAL. EVEN IN FAMILIES, LIKE CULTURES ARE PATRIARCHAL OR MATRIARICAL, "ONE PERSON WEARS THE PANTS". (THIS IS GENERAL VIEW AND NO REFLECTION OF ANYONE HERE) CHILDREN LEARN THIS EARLY, AND IT SHAPES THEM. IF WE REFLECT BACK IN OUR CHILDHOOD, WE WILL SEE THE SAME.

ANYTHING WE FEAR TO LOSE, MONEY, A HOME, A CAR, AN ATTRACTIVE BODY,AN AGILE MIND, BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND, SPOUSES, A DEEP BELIEF IS SYMBOLS OF EXTERNAL POWER. WE THAN "COMPETE"......(SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST) TO HANG ON TO OUR EXTERNAL POWER. THIS COMPETITION FOR EXTERNAL POWER LIES AT THE HEART OF VIOLENCE. (TAKE A MOMENT AND REFLECT ON THAT REMARK)

COMPETITION FOR EXTERNAL POWER OF BELIEFS IS....EXAMPLE: OF CONFLICTS OF CAPITALISM VS COMMUNISM, IRISH CATHOLIC VS IRISH PROTESTANTS, JEWS VS ARABS, MARITAL CONFLICTS.

WHEN A HUSBAND AND WIFE "COMPETE" FOR "POWER"IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ONE RACE COMPETES AGAINST ANOTHER. THE END RESULT IS SAME. ONE WILL BE "DOMINATING". THIS IS THE CAUSE AND EFFECTS OF THE ACTIONS OF PHYSICAL DOMINANCE. FROM ALL OF THIS, WE HAVE FORMED AN UNDERSTANDING OF EVOLUTION OF OURSELVES. .....THAT IS....

TO CONTROL OR BE CONTROLLED......

THIS IS HOW WE HAVE EVOLVED, UNTIL NOW, AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE LEAVING BEHYND.

WE ARE EVOLVING FROM A 5 SENSORY HUMAN INTO A MULTI-SENSORY HUMAN. THIS IS AN UNDENIABLE CHANGE THAT AFFECTS EVERYONE WHO IS ON OR SEEKING A SPIRITUAL PATH.

THERE ARE MANY LEVELS OF THIS, AND THIS IS DONE, BECAUSE ALL OF US DO AND LEARN ON DIFFERENT LEVELS AND DIFFERENT PLANES. REGARDLESS, EVERYONE ONE OF US CHANGES. WE ONLY CHANGE WHEN WE ALLOW IT.

THE 5 SENSES AS EXPLAINED IN PREVIOUS POST, FORMS A SINGLE SENSORY, THAT IT'S SOLE PURPOSE IS TO VIEW THE PHYSICAL REALITY OF OUR LIVES AND WORLD. THE MULTI-SENSORY HUMAN IS ABLE TO VIEW, UTILIZE, AND EVEN APPRECIATE THE ROLE THE PHYSICAL REALITY PLAYS IN A LARGER PICTURE OF OUR EVOLUTION, AND THE PHYSICAL REALITY IT CREATES AND SUSTAINS.

IN THE INVISIBLE REALM, IS WHERE WE WILL FYND OUR DEEPEST ORIGINS OF OUR TRUE VALUES. FROM THIS VIEW/PERCEPTION, THE MOTIVATIONS OF THOSE WHO "CONSCIOUSLY" SACRIFICE THEIR LIVES FOR A HIGHER PURPOSE AND GOAL, MAKES SENSE, THE POWER OF "GANDHI", AND THE COMPASSIONATE ACTS OF "CHRIST", AND THE WISDOM OF "BUDDHA" ARE UNDERSTOOD. TO THE 5 SENSORY PERSON, THIS IS NOT EASILY UNDERSTOOD.

ALL OF OUR GREAT TEACHERS BEEN MULTI-SENSORY HUMANS. THEY HAVE SPOKEN TO US, AND TEACH US LESSONS IN ACCORDANCE OF PERCEPTIONS AND VALUES, THAT SHOWS A MUCH LARGER PICTURE THAN WE NORMALLY CAN SEE.

THEREFORE, THEIR WORDS AND ACTS AWAKEN WITHIN US THE RECOGNITION OF "TRUTHS". WITH THESE VIEWS AND CONCEPTS WE DIFFER WITH THE 5 SENSORY PERSON, IN BELIEVING WE ARE ALONE. WE ARE NOT ALONE. THE UNIVERSE IS ALIVE, CONSCIOUS, INTELLIGENT AND COMPASSIONATE.

WHEREAS A 5 SENSE PERSON SEEKS TO DOMINATE, IN ORDER TO SURVIVE, THE MULTI-SENSE HUMAN LOOKS AT THE PHYSICAL WORLD AS A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT, THAT IS CREATED JOINTLY BY SOULS THAT SHARE IT, AND EVERYTHING WITHIN IT SERVES OUR LEARNING.

SO WITH THE UNDERSTANDING WE ARE A PART OF SOMETHING GREATER, A PART OF A WHOLE BEYOND OUR PHYSICAL UNDERSTANDING AND PERCEPTION, THIS IS WHERE THE EVOLUTION OF US CONTINUING TO CHANGE IS HAPPENING.

WITH A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF OUR HUMAN AND SPIRITUAL PERSONA OF OURSELVES, WE LEARN TO SEEK "AUTHENTIC POWER".

THIS IS ANOTHER KYND OF POWER. IT IS A POWER THAT LOVES LIFE IN ALL FORMS THAT IT APPEARS. A POWER THAT DOES NOT JUDGE WHAT IT ENCOUNTERS. A POWER THAT PERCEIVES MEANINGFULNESS AND PURPOSE IN EVERY SMALL DETAIL ON OUR EARTH AND OUR LIVES.

WHEN WE ALIGN OUR "THOUGHTS", OUR "WORDS", OUR EMOTIONS, AND OUR VERY DEEDS WITH THE HIGHEST PART OF OURSELVES, WE ARE FILLED WITH ENTHUSIASM, PURPOSE AND MEANING. LIFE WILL BE RICH AND FULL. WE HAVE NOR CARRY THOUGHTS OF BITTERNESS, FEAR WILL CEASE TO HOLD US BACK.

THIS IS THE TRUE EXPERIENCE OF AUTHENTIC POWER...............

AUTHENTIC POWER LIES IN OUR DEEPEST ROOTS OF OUR BEING. AUTHENTIC POWER UNLIKE PHYSICAL POWER CAN NOT BE BOUGHT, SOLD, TRADE, OR INHERITED, NOR HOARDED. AN AUTHENTIC EMPOWERED BEING IS INCAPABLE OF MAKING ANYONE OR ANYTHING A VICTIM.

AN AUTHENTIC EMPOWERED BEING IS STRONG THAT THE IDEA OF USING FORCE AGAINST ANOTHER IS NOT PART OF HIS OR HERS CONSCIOUSNESS.

SO WE ARE NOW LEAVING BEHYND THE PHYSICAL POWER THAT WE EVOLVED WITH, THE POWER "TO CONTROL OR BE CONTROLLED". BREAKING THE CHAINS OF THOSE VIEWS AND UNDERSTANDING THAT CONTROLS US. INSTEAD WE SEEK THE AUTHENTIC POWER THAT LIES WITHIN US AND BEFORE US. THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF OUR EVOLUTION FROM THE PHYSICAL INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALMS.

MAY EACH OF YOU, ON YOUR JOURNEY, SEEK THIS POWER THAT IS YOURS, AND SEEK THE FREEDOM THAT LIES WITHIN YOUR SOUL.

WALK IN PEACE
