Personal, Social and Cultural viewpoints
The three awareness level groups.
How we view our outlook on life
If I look around and make an assessment about the people in my life, on which awareness levels they focus on in their lives, many of my immediate family fall under the personal category. My close friends are in-between. Some focus mainly on a personal and community Social) level, depending on their situation in life at that moment. Most of my network friends and followers are almost all (cultural) globally-minded individuals.
A definition of the three main levels of perception
- Personal outlook: Focusing on ourselves - Or...they are very shy or fear driven to interact with others. Only listen to their inner critic. Never interact through Social media but might look. - They must learn to take the focus off themselves and look for meaning in their experiences.
- Social outlook: There are four main components of social perception: observation, attribution, integration, and confirmation. - People who are great volunteers for their local bazaars or will keep family members together. Or...They do rarely interact through Social Media unless it's to their own family or friends - Social perceivers must integrate all available information into a unified impression.
- Cultural outlook: Humanity as a whole. People who are interested what goes on in the world on many different levels. A belief that humans are part of the natural world and must respect and care for it.- They must find, or awaken to their Higher-level visions in order to make a difference to themselves and every person they come in contact with.
Only when a person is in balance with all three aspects of their lives can they evolve to the next level of 5th reality consciousness. In the 5th dimension, we are completely spiritually oriented.
Personal outlook on life:
People in this category are mostly young children up until teenager age. This outlook on life is also called being self-centered. Everything revolves around them. (In the early stages of life this self-centeredness is necessary in order to develop personal individuality). When you recognize this level in an adult, this is clearly an individual who is still in a kind of survival mode. He or she comes first.
Their agenda will always be “What is in it for me?” On social networking platforms, these people are still there for themselves and rarely venture out toward people they do not know physically. This outlook must be explored until the individual is stable within themselves in order to move to a more Social community outlook on life.
Which awareness level is the largest on the planet?
Community (Social) outlook on life
People in this category think about how they can be of assistance to the lives of their family, village or community. They explore all the feelings within themselves and how that might affect others, but not for the approval of others, rather for the good of themselves and others. These people will overcome any social fear by just getting out into the crowd. The individual’s needs come first, and then it spills over into the family’s needs, and then their community.
Today you find a lot of people who are using network communities to do just that. The internet has brought people together who otherwise would not have reached this stage. Many social network communities have sprung up that have attracted people with the same interests. These communities are often skill based. People are sharing their knowledge and talents for the benefit of themselves and others. Often these members are joining larger networks that have a Global outlook on life.
Cultural (Global) outlook on life
People in this category are drawn to planetary solutions that incorporate human beings, animals, and our nature kingdom as a united group. Viewpoints are specialized due to the interest and skills each individual has brought into this outlook on life on a cultural and global level.
Here you will find visionary leaders who have the global community at heart. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society. The human desire to understand and influence their environment has been the foundation for the development of science, philosophy, mythology, environment, economy, healing and art.
The Dawn of the Third Millennium
At the beginning of the 21st century, (never before in human history) we have had so much complexity, uncertainty, and change to deal with; due to wars, depressed economies and rising crime rates that our society can be seen to be crumbling.
The nuclear family no longer provides a meaningful context for young people. Many of us only see our parents or children once a year. We are all dealing with unprecedented diversity in our workplaces; people with very different worldviews, beliefs, attitudes, and preferences. Look at your own lifetime. How many new sets of skills have you had to adapt to during the last five years? Most of us know that things are changing fast, but how many of us are aware that the rate of change itself is accelerating?
Does this newsletter Of Alex Colliertell us that we are soon see major changes coming?
What we can imagine we can make real!
Is change itself accelerating?
Is our Society accelerating?
- From Family to clan, to tribe, to the village, to a city, to state, to a nation, to perhaps a global village?
- From Papyrus to the printing press, to the telephone, to the internet.
- From Horse and buggy to the automobile, to the space shuttle.
- From Hunter-gatherer to Shakespeare to rap music (Okay, maybe I should have left that one off the list)
So, evolution has been on this upward spiral not so?
- First on a cosmological level, then on a biological level, then on a cultural level.
For me It is clear that we are heading in a very specific direction; From a positive viewpoint we could ultimately move towards the global village on an arc toward Unity, or we crumble due to the corrupt practices of a few that control most of the population.
Who takes control? The common people, or the super wealthy who control the leaders in our governments?
How do we educate our children to become global citizens?
‘Think global, act local’
At this time there are significant and substantial global challenges but there are also many opportunities which we should grasp to ensure that children and young people develop the skills, knowledge, and values to flourish and succeed as responsible global citizens.
“Think global, act local’ is a world-famous slogan that has been attributed to Sir Patrick Geddes, the Scottish biologist who was also an innovative thinker in urban planning and education. The words are part of a legacy which has influenced education for global citizenship today.”
Is our animal kingdom evolving towards a 5th dimensional level?
I think they are. There are many stories on the internet where we humans can learn from our animals, both domestic and creatures that live free in the wild.
There are several books that clearly tell us that we can learn a lot from our fellow Earth citizens whom humanity has categorized as belonging to the animal kingdom. What we learn tells us that they might be fellow creations in consciousness but in a different body?
Book reviews that could shift our outlook on life
In the book Hunting with the Heart - A Vision Quest to Spiritual Emergence by Graham Saayman
The opening chapters tell the story behind his research as a behavioral scientist on African baboons, dolphins and whales during the 1960’s and 1970’s, when anthropologists first suggested that naturalistic studies of long-lived, large-brained mammals might illuminate the origins of the human family system.
In the animal kingdom you can see these levels very clearly. In Graham’s book we learn about the family structure of dolphin’s, chimpanzees and whales who all signify the natural buoyancy of the human spirit. The story of Yogg, a huge male baboon who radiated a sense of confidence stands out for me. He was not only a leader of his community, but he expressed an astonishing wisdom when threatened or attacked by potent males.
Touching Animal Souls - Life Lessons from the Animal World by Gabrielle Harris
The author's more than twenty years professional experience in training wild animals including dolphins, horses, dogs, and monkeys is remarkable. Gabrielle knows the perils of dogma and superstition. She neatly pulls back and gives a unique line between what we think we know and what we feel. Read it for insights and expect to be challenged. It confirmed what some readers might already know, that animals are not simple beasts and when we approach one we better know a lot about them while keeping our ego out of the way. We can learn many qualities by interacting with the animals in our world. This book includes amazing stories about animal communication and the touching gifts that they bring to our world.
The Seven Awareness Levels
- Are there any Parallel Worlds & Realities?
In this 3rd dimensional realm – Planet Earth – people live in a ‘world’ that is based on the preconceived belief that they exist on just one solid timeline rather than on multi-dimensional levels.
