We’re bombarded each day with information and data regarding synthetic environmental adjustments which might be altering and reconfiguring the panorama of the earth’s floor. The occasions being reported are simple and disturbing, as they’re decreasing slightly than nurturing the carpet of life that after coated the planet.
Why is that this?
spe·ci·a·tion – noun – BIOLOGY – the formation of latest and distinct species in the middle of evolution.
Maybe, humanity has not but outlined itself as a single species. We appear to have shaped a number of subspecies, differing profoundly in ranges of consciousness and conduct.
The first subspecies consists of an enormous herd – like conglomeration that contains the vast majority of people. A lesser however quickly rising subspecies is comprised of people in various phases of awakening.
This description of the 2 main subdivisions, under no circumstances intends to recommend superiority or inferiority to both group. This dialogue seeks solely to explain the affect and penalties of this division on the flexibility of the planet, to assist life as we perceive it.
The herd is and maintains the established order. It’s the guardian and guarantor of the system, the social order. This method is the cumulative set of agreements, beliefs, widespread perceptions and behavioral patterns that outline human existence. This apparently, seamless system is constantly programmed into us from the second of beginning to the second of demise by mother and father, academics, non secular leaders, political leaders . . . . . all the sources of authority that we’re plugged into. Uniformity and conformity are scrupulously enforced in ways in which vary from direct and apparent to refined and subliminal. Penalties for deviation can embrace demise, imprisonment, humiliation, rejection and disenfranchisement.
Herd members keep away from taking duty for his or her particular person and collective acts. Relatively, they select leaders from their ranks and entrust them to make selections for them . . . . .to lead them. If issues go effectively, they commend the leaders; if issues go mistaken, they blame the leaders. They usually exchange them.
Environmental free – fall is steadily approaching some extent of no return and is the direct results of the historic, collective acts of the human herd subspecies. Herd members are pushed, individually and collectively, by the ego centered thoughts or me, that has been rigorously and steadfastly normal and fitted by the system . . . . .the social order. This huge assortment of me models compete and try for self-fulfillment primarily based on the buildup of issues and the achievement of transient targets and aims which serve solely to quickly inflate and bolster particular person and collective egos.
The satisfaction is passing and leaves the person or herd group with a renewed and intensified thirst for extra. Nature, the host surroundings is seen as a vast, disposable, warehouse of things set in place by a better energy for man’s unique use.
The notice of the herd has not prolonged to a degree the place it’s able to greedy the unity and inter- connectedness of all life in nature and, after all, the resonant results of its damaging exercise on the net of life which incorporates itself.
Neither good nor dangerous . . . simply the best way it’s.
The place does this depart us? The opportunity of deferring change to a future agenda is now not doable. The window of time out there to change human conduct to an extent essential to avert an irreversible, catastrophic chain of ecological occasions is closing quickly. This isn’t a matter of quickly or possibly. That is proper now. We’re approaching the brink of extinction. It comes down to 2 decisions. We are able to make our stand with the herd, take no duty, search for somebody accountable, keep the socially engineered fictions of separateness, specialness, superiority and proceed navigating aimlessly, with out connection, in darkness. The journey might be brief and a method.
The opposite selection is to quietly detach from the herd by merely taking duty for our personal lives and
actions . . . permitting one’s important self the possibility to awaken, prevail and navigate . . . to maneuver past larval consciousness.
The longer term is unknowable. The environmental free – fall that we’re experiencing will play out and rebalance. That’s all we could be positive of.
