A unified collective consciousness
The power of change
In the collective consciousness if there is division we lose much of our power to create the change we desire. In this instance, perhaps our desire is to create a more peaceful existence, History demonstrates well mans effort to live a more peaceful existence but it also demonstrates well how we have failed much of the time because of this perceived division. Sadly we are not aware of the interconected web of intricate patterns of energy that we are connected to, that gives the power of creation is jump start. The amazing power for change then lies in a unified collective consciousness.
Perhaps, the division that is occurring in the collective consciousness, as an analogy, can be likened to a body that has cancer cells. The cancerous cells are normal cells that multiply at a rate much faster than the healthy cells. Each cell in the body is interconnected and interdependent of each other. Each cell or group of cells have their own function and because they are interconnected and interdependent, how well each cell or group of cells function will determine the type of effect they will have on other cells. When the cells are functioning in synchronicity and harmony a healthy body will result. If for whatever reason cancerous cells ears are closed, the synchronicity and harmony no longer exist and a diseased body will result. Cancer cells do no know they are not multiplying in synchronicity with the other cells because they cannot hear the communication that goes on with the cells and just keep doing what they do until the condition that causes their ears to be closed is healed.
A unified collective consciousness is like a body with cells that function in Sync. A divided consciousness is like a body with cancerous cells. An individual’s consciousness is like one cell, interconnected and interdependent on other individuals’ consciousness. Of which makes up the collective consciousness. How well they function will affect the collective consciousness. Whether it is unified or divided the cause lies in the heart of each and every individual.
So how do we deeply implant the principles of non violence in to the consciousness of each and every person that are, whether they know it or not, part of the collective consciousness?
With each new birth there is an individual consciousness that can be taught the way of peace The power of change starts first with the heart of an individual. It is not so much about changing what has already manifested. It is more about changing that which is yet to manifest which lies in the heart of each and every one of us. Whether we advocated violence in the past or not it only takes a decision to make a peaceful choice. But it starts with the individual.
If more individuals chose peace in their heart and every new individual were taught peace, perhaps the collective conscious will become more unified and the harmony of living will be more peaceful one.
