We’ve taken a big step up the consciousness staircase, very quickly—let’s call this burgeoning element of higher consciousness our Higher Being.The Higher Being is brilliant, big-thinking, and totally rational.The Higher Being can see the truth just fine in almost any situation.But when the fog is thick around us, blocking our eyes and ears and coating our brain, we have no access to the Higher Being or his insight.
The collective force of the animals is what I call “the fog.” The more the animals are running the show and making us deaf and blind to the thoughts and insights of the Higher Being, the thicker the fog is around our head, often so thick we can only see a few inches in front of our face: Let’s think back to our goal above and our path to it—being aware of the truth.
In the last post, I described the way my own path had led me to be an atheist—but how in my satisfaction with being proudly nonreligious, I never gave serious thought to an active approach to internal improvement—hindering my own evolution in the process. Society at large focuses on shallow things, so it doesn’t stress the need to take real growth seriously.
The major institutions in the spiritual arena—religions—tend to focus on divinity over people, making salvation the end goal instead of self-improvement.
The industries that do often focus on the human condition—philosophy, psychology, art, literature, self-help, etc.—lie more on the periphery, with their work often fragmented from each other.
All of this sets up a world that makes it hard to treat internal growth as anything other than a hobby, an extra-curricular, icing on the life cake.
