Could the unconsciousness of the masses be causing chaos to the planet?
It seems lately that every time you turn on the news that there is some new natural disaster or tragic event (I don’t actually have a TV or watch the news but with social media it is hard to be completely removed from it all)
Is it possible that so much of this is caused by the vast majority of people being unconscious to their thoughts and emotions and letting the thoughts in their mind consume them rather than listening to their intuition and their in-built guidance system?
I’ve been reading ‘The Power of Now‘ recently and this passage really stood out for me;
‘Do you resent what you are doing? It may be your job, or you may have agreed to do something and are doing it, but part of you resents it and resists it. Are you carrying unspoken resentment toward a person close to you? Do you realise that the energy you thus emanate is so harmful in its effects that you are in fact contaminating yourself as well as those around you?’
‘Maybe you are being taken advantage of, maybe the situation you are engaged in is tedious, maybe someone close to you is dishonest, irritating, or unconscious, but all this is irrelevant. Whether your thoughts and emotions about this situation are justified or not makes no difference. The fact is that you are resisting what is. You are making the present moment into an enemy. You are creating unhappiness, conflict between the inner and the outer. Your unhappiness is polluting not only your own inner being and those around you but also that collective human psyche of which you are an inseperable part. The pollution of the planet is only an outward reflection of an inner psychic pollution: millions of unconscious individuals not taking responsibility for their inner space.
Either stop doing what you are doing, speak to the person concerned and express fully what you feel, or drop the negativity. Negativity is never the optimum way of dealing with any situation. In fact, in most cases it keeps you stuck in it, blocking real change. Anything that is done with negative energy will give rise to more pain, more unhappiness. Any negative inner state is contagious: Unhappiness spreads more easily than a physical disease; it triggers and feeds latent negativity in others, unless they are immune i.e. highly conscious.
Are you polluting the world or cleaning up the mess? You are responsible for you inner space; nobody else is, just as you are responsible for the planet. As within, so without: If humans clear inner pollution, then they will also cease to create outer pollution.’
Your unhappiness is polluting not only your own inner being and those around you but also that collective human psyche of which you are an inseperable part.
This why is so important to do the inner work of meditation and mindfulness. Too many people are just following a path because it is what they think they ‘should be doing’ or is ‘the right thing to do’ but from the above passage you can see that it is only contributing further to the negativity of the planet and it is causing turmoil within it which is manifesting in natural disasters, tragedies and atrocities.
We need to stop this cycle of negativity. We need to start listening to our intuition. Stop blaming and start taking responsibility. Responsibility for what we choose to put out into the world which is either more negativity or is pure positivity.
Discipline is only difficult until it becomes a habit.
Negativity is easy that’s why we must try harder. We need to be more disciplined and aware of what we are doing until it becomes automatic, a habit.
Think of a time when you tried to learn something new, a skill, say an instrument, a sport, a movement, etc. In the beginning every movement is deliberate and requires a lot of conscious thought. You are aware that you are trying to do it.
Then when you master it or become more proficient it becomes less mentally demanding. You just do it.
That is what we must do with our thoughts and our actions. We must be deliberate and aware of them until they are corrected so that they are no longer contributing to the cycle of negativity and the chaos and turmoil in the world.
