Humanity is now experiencing the birth pangs of a global social transformation the likes of which have never experienced in recorded history. Never in the history of human life on this planet has there been such a grave and serious threat of the planet that we live on becoming uninhabitable because of the actions of one species that has asserted its dominance. Nearly everyone feels that something big is happening, although the reasons being proclaimed for this are as numerous as the stars, thanks to peoples’ various belief systems, subjective perceptions and current levels of knowledge and information about what is going on.
We are now in a completely new phase of evolution, a fundamental evolution of consciousness, that will change everything. This is an intentional evolution, based upon the shifting of our consciousness out of the ego’s domain and into the unity-oriented domain. Oneness among all peoples, regardless of how similar or different they may be to our own selves, will be key to this transition. By uniting together as one species, one family, we can not only ensure that we survive but, also that we thrive and transcend the lower realms of consciousness so that we can have a world that is finally filled with peace, love, and happiness (and not just filled with empty rhetoric). Not doing so will seal our fate in experiencing the most soul-crushing of dystopias imaginable.
There is thankfully an emerging worldview arising out of the ashes of the old order and it can be seen as a sign of immense hope for the immediate future. In order for our long-term future to be a bright one we must become unified in seeing this emerging unity-oriented worldview as being the key to a future we can all be proud of.
Do we want possible future explorers of our solar system to come upon our planet, find our artifacts and discover how foolish we were in our planetary and species’ self-destruction, becoming a footnote in the history annals of sentient races that brought about their own demise because of a lack of understanding about the interconnectedness of everything? Will we be looked upon as being an “intelligent” species that could have avoided imploding in on itself if it only discarded its self-destructive positions of awareness? Let’s not become a footnote in a book of failed evolutionary experiments and become something that we can be proud of.
Let’s not forget how many similarities we have. Think about all the social conditioning from the point of birth to the time of death. Look at all the beliefs we amass that divide us as a species and notice how these are not necessarily representative of reality but were learned behaviors that further perpetuated the destructive cycles in human behavior that we see today.
There is a continuously increasing number of people that are realizing the importance of an intentional shift in the collective consciousness of humanity. They feel within themselves that they have a critical role to play in this shift if they wish to see it occur. These people see that the entire socioeconomic system has to be changed. When they look around and see the egoistic expression of greed manifest itself through the haves taking more and more from the have-nots. They see that 13.7 billion years of cosmic evolution did not intend to end here with the current sad state of affairs.
The psychological addiction of consuming and acquiring, manifested through materialism seems to be increasingly infecting more minds in a shorter amount of time. We are at a dangerous position in our evolution where the old ego-dominated mentality is fighting desperately to maintain its current level of power because they are far too invested in the current order to give it all up and make the evolutionary quantum leap into a new humanity.
Trailblazing Towards a New Humanity
There is an increasing amount of individuals who are taking the human race by the hand towards the unity-oriented vision of humanity that is the answer to the current problems we face (since it is aligned with the nature of our environment). These people dedicate their lives to this cause because they believe so deeply in it and have such an immense love for our human family and, naturally, to the rest of life on our planet that is losing up to 100,000 species to extinction every year. The individuals can be called intentional “evolutionaries” since they are making it a life goal for helping humanity make the shift and transition to the new unifying of humanity that embodies the mind-states of peace, love and compassion above all else.
They will not allow these things to turn into cliches as has happened in the past but, will live them and become the literal expression of these higher levels of consciousness for the benefit of themselves and of everyone/everything else. As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said, “There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.”
How true this is since the feelings being expressed by these intentional evolutionaries are as genuine and good-natured as can be. There is no ego formulating a hidden agenda or any attempt at subversion in order to get something for themselves. No, they recognize that they have a critical role to play in the consciousness shift that is occurring. They know that if this consciousness evolution is to continue to fulfill its potential, it now must be deliberate and, they feel with the whole of their hearts that it is their responsibility and destiny to ensure this happens.
Unity and diversity need not been separate. It’s possible to be united in the expression of higher mind states such as compassion, joy, love and peace while keeping the attributes which make each one of us special and, unique. Cooperation on a global level is possible and, in fact, necessary if we are to make the transition to a new humanity. It seems as if it’s something a child would understand but, unfortunately, the actions of some (particularly world leaders in government and industry) demonstrate that this elementary concept is not grasped by the aging remnants of the old world order. War, famine and environmental destruction would be a thing of the past if only the peoples of the world cooperated with each other to bring about such a world. Today, with various crises extending far beyond any one country’s borders, there is a very real possibility for global unity and cooperation to finally become a reality.
If the human response to crises such as the ones following Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti and the revolutions against tyranny around the world tell us anything, it’s that we can put our differences aside, and unify, to cooperative with each other in order to create positive change. Do not become depressed about the state of affairs currently on our planet. There is a massive awakening occurring with a realization that it is now or never. We need to shape up or we’re shipping out of this world with no possibility of coming back anytime soon.
Become an intentional evolutionary and take advantage of every opportunity that may arise in order to promote the creation of a fundamental consciousness shift that is global in size and scope. Make it a part of your life’s purpose to help in creating a critical mass of consciously evolved individuals that will stop the destructive nature of the current socioeconomic order. Our very future and survival depends on it!
