A voice in the wilderness
WE COULD BE JUST A FEW
STEPS FROM OUR AWAKENING
If humanity continues on its present course, life as we have known it on this planet will be a thing of the past. The challenges faced by our species today — from the imminent threat of nuclear war to the apparently-we’re-just-going-to-ignore-it threat of global warming — may now only be overcome-able with new and never-before-tried approaches to changing basic human behaviors. The question before humanity: are we just a few steps from our awakening …or from our abandonment of the life of which we have so long dreamed?
In the newest Conversations with God dialogue we are offered a list of sixteen differences in the behaviors of an awakened species when compared to the behaviors of humans living in an unawakened state.
In the days ahead we complete our review of that list, and provide an opportunity for deep discussion of it. Here, then, are the final items, #13-16:
13. An awakened species never competes. Humans in an unawakened state are often in competition with each other.
14. An awakened species is clear that it needs nothing. Humans in an unawakened state often create a need-based experience.
15. An awakened species experiences and expresses unconditional love for everyone. Humans in an unawakened state often cannot imagine even a Deity who does this, much less do they do it themselves.
16. An awakened species has harnessed the power of metaphysics. Humans in an unawakened state often largely ignore it.
Looking at these four observations, do you agree? What changes do you think would take place in the daily experience of humanity if we adopted the four behaviors of an awakened species that are listed here?
Conversations with God-Book 4: Awaken the Species has placed before us a road map, providing us a look at how we may get from where we are as a species to where we want to be: a place that is free from violence and strife, from suffering caused by others, from the experience of lack and insufficiency.
I believe it is possible for the human collective to get there, to create these outcomes. What do you think? Is this all a pipe dream? And regarding the four behaviors on the list above, do you see them as applicable and functional in any way in the daily experience and expression of the sentient beings on our planet?
