Consciousness is on the Move!

We are experiencing a planet wide elevation in consciousness.  Coinciding with the “age of Aquarius” this raising of consciousness is felt by everyone.  It is similar to the rising tide lifting all boats.  Even those boats that don’t want to be lifted.  Those boats are unhappy and such tension is evident.  This is a reaction to change.

 What is “raising” consciousness?  In its simplest sense it is gaining a greater, wider, broader and more in-depth awareness of ourselves and creation.  It is spiritual evolution.  It makes for more satisfying and full-filled lives. 

 For example, an ancient teaching (leading to an elevation of consciousness) was to take an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.  It was a means of establishing justice.  Take only an eye to compensate for the loss of your eye, or take only a tooth for the loss of your took.  Rather than, say, kill someone, burn their house, slaughter their herd and so on.

 Let’s take a step above that level of consciousness and expand it with a new concept:  That which is hateful to yourself do not do unto others.  The shift here is a greater awareness of self in relation to others.  What you would not want to happen to you, do not do to other people.  Those who understood this teaching developed more control over their thoughts (awareness) and their actions.  They gained spiritual power and applied it to their three-dimensional life on Earth, greatly reducing violence and torment.

 The next great raising of consciousness was a teaching that simply stated to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  That was a major leap in consciousness.  Understanding this teaching focused conscious awareness not on others, but on self.  In the older teaching the focus was other people doing to you as the means of choosing how you would treat them.  It is reactive.  The newer teaching focused on how someone wants to be treated and translate that awareness into how he/she treats others.  It is active.

 If you can grasp the difference between “that which is hateful to yourself do not do unto others” and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” then you understand an elevation of consciousness.

 The current evolution is to expand consciousness to a level of awareness that reveals the interconnectedness of everything.  Everything.  To do harm to another (and this will include everything) is to inflict harm upon yourself.  And vice versa.  This is why the Law of Attraction is being taught so extensively.  In another sense:

IT is all connected.

It IS all connected.

It is ALL connected.

It is all CONNECTED.

This new awareness is a game changer not just for us, but for all Earth.  Treat everything as if it is self aware – yes, that means everything.  This is how kindness is developed.

Exciting time, these.  And we are all a part of it.
