Responsibilities of the Awakening Path
Societal consciousness follows a wave pattern undulating between clarity and confusion. When certain conditions have become comprehensible to the group consciousness, there is a kind of progress in the form of an awakening followed by a measure of peace and harmony.
When new elements are introduced, those circumstances alter with new nuance, and again wrinkles of confusion propagate within the consciousness. Right now we are living in a period that is characterized by such wrinkles of confusion. My guess is that it began in the early 2000s and may last until the mid 2020s.
This is a large-scale process on the level of the human species within the physical world. On an individual level, however, we may be entirely “ahead” or “behind” when it comes to these developments.
Those who are ahead have a twofold responsibility.
The first is to be frequency holders. We should anchor the wakeful consciousness of peace, freedom, and happiness through leading by example. And by that I mean embodiment. It has nothing to do with building an audience, preaching, or even teaching. It is more like being a living, breathing butterfly effect.
The second responsibility is not to resent those who are behind on their growth. Those who are closed-minded, who are filled with divisive perspectives and fragile identities, they do not know anything else. Their ignorance also makes problems for others and so much as we can help with those problems, we should. But if we start to resent those who are still growing, we allow their confusion to enter our hearts.
Walking your own spiritual path, increasing your enthusiasm and appreciation for the awakening process, you will eventually find yourself beyond the state of the collective human consciousness. It can be a jarring experience, feeling as though you are surrounded by insane creatures—beings who endlessly harm themselves and others. Non-reactivity and unconditional loving-kindness will guide you through the transition. Don’t give up and don’t get caught up.
