As a result of a recent personal awakening, I have entered somewhat of a transformation period-- feeling as if I am becoming an entirely different person. Regardless of the fact that I had always liked to consider myself to be progressing as an individual-- I realize now that that has not always been the case for me. Although my personality may have always remained the same, but my deviant nature prevented me from functioning in the dreaded real world. Of course, I was eventually going to have to trade my youth for something, but unfortunately none of my options looked appealing to my idealistic side. In my mind, the insignificant future that everybody else seemed to work towards was a total turn off, yet my ambition to change the world seemed so far out of reach. I felt trapped in a paradox, and for several years I could not find an exit out of my head. It wasn't until last July, just before starting my sophomore year in college, when I finally started to pursue some of my intellectual interests. In my former years, academic advancements had always been a pursuit that I had very little interest in, but regardless of my bad grades and truancy I have always been philosophical in nature. That's why I have always been able to relate my issues to my own personal studies-- plus, I also found it to be a really good escape for me. During this particular phase I started to study a wide variety of topics, particularly science and evolution. Devoting my time to learning is what ultimately triggered my psyche to change. When I learned about how life came to existence on earth, I discovered a more modern phenomenon regarding a potential evolution in terms of consciousness. By relating the evolution of the original carbon compounds in the primordial seas to the evolution of the human mind-- the sociological issues that our world is currently dealing with became quite clear to me. To me, it always seemed like there was two forces with opposing views shaping our current world, and without a willingness to compromise. This of course had contributed to my own personal confusion-- never entirely sure where it was that I belonged.
In the molecules case, many of these compounds were much too complex to survive-- so as a result they disintegrated back into the earth. As I discovered this I felt a strong relation to the complex molecular compounds because I too am also much too complicated to function in my own environment. It always seemed to be the simple people that were able to get by, and unfortunately I am far from simple. Despite the deaths of these carbon molecules life went on until eventually the complex molecules evolved to make duplicates of themselves-- that way they were able to preserve their identity before disintegrating. Reading about this evolutionary phenomenon triggered realizations that lead me to believe that my own consciousness must somehow be preparing me for the future, only a different type of future. Although I may not be physically splitting myself in half, it’s as if my mind is freeing itself to prepare me for a new reality. I will admit that there was still a part of me that wanted to be like a normal person, just so that I could have the satisfaction of fitting in and starting a career, but it all seemed like such a waste to me. Even though it was expected of me, a nineteen year old, to have some sort of concept of what I wanted to do with my life, I never was able to stay focused like all of my peers. I wanted another option so badly, but I didn’t think that there were any until. At least, until I started to ponder our species existence from a more provident perspective, helping me to understand the true nature of my own mind as well as its potential.
Clearly our world is experiencing a huge evolutionary phenomenon, which explains why there are so many social disputes among the masses, not just psychologically but also politically. Similarly to the carbon molecules, many are fighting against change and it is because not everybody is evolving according to their own mental capacities. When the organic molecules did this they were not able to make the change that was necessary for them to survive into the future. Those that tried to prevent this change wasted their energy fighting it, and as a result their own survival was at stake. Since our world is is not going to be sustainable for ever, people should instead be working to strengthen their minds for a dimensional shift, transcending the limitations associated with this holographic reality. This is why personal evolution should be our first priority-- there is still hope for us all if we put a greater importance on this! Like any evolving organism, those that are able to expand their potential are bound to survive into the future, ensuring an ongoing life process. As for the organic compounds, the molecules that were able to make this shift ended up becoming much more energy efficient than the ones that wasted their energy fighting against this change. As a result, they then evolved so that they were able to: absorb and digest energy, rid the body of harmful toxins, and even move from one place to another. In our current society, people have been developing psychic abilities and advanced brain powers, but if we want to increase our mental capacities so that these gifts can become a new norm we must all change our priorities. As of right now our society does not promote the growth of a higher self. Instead, people are more concerned about productivity and conformity and it seems that almost everybody is too distracted by mindless tasks to focus on these necessary personal transformations.
A new species is emerging as a result of this punctuated equilibrium, and with these new minds comes a desperate need for new information. The social structures that we once depended on are failing us-- that's why so many people are becoming completely discontent with how our society operates! Believing that these old ways will still work into the future will only prevent us from making any type of progress as a whole, if anything it is only slowing us down. The people who have evolved the most acknowledge this and spend their waking hours in a constant state of reflection, not just on the world around them but also on their own actions and character. Those that have these mental tendencies do not accept the world for the way it is. Instead, the seek to better themselves so that they can therefore improve the world around them. This is the trait of a great mind, the same thought patterns that all people should adopt if they want to continue their lives into the future. It pains me to know that there are still so many people let themselves believe that their status or degree has earned them a mind, because to be honest neither of those characteristics are the symptoms of an evolved soul. Having a strong opinion is not the same thing as having a strong mind-- opinions do not get us very far, and besides they are only creating more controversy for the entire whole. Right now our society is in desperate need of a new paradigm, but this change depends on each and every one of us being willing to change ourselves. The reason that we cannot rely on a leader to fix our problems is because the root of the problem is internal, and can therefore only be addressed through introspection. Resisting this is not an act of reason or contentment, it is actually a sign of personal error, and unless one changes their actions they then risk their own cognitive evolution. There is a higher-self in all of us but we all must work to promote its growth by training our minds through reflective thought. That we can all transcend the limitations associated with this reality and fulfill our own metaphysical potential just like those tiny carbon molecules that eventually evolved into life as we know it.
