Much has been said recently regarding the “mass awakening.” Whether this is really occurring at this time or not, while certainly significant, it is not what is most important to me.
Personally, I can think of no fate more cruel than to rely upon the elevation of consciousness of the sleeping masses for my continued existence. This sounds like the false construct devised by a demon rather than emanating from anything good.
Sorry, but I just don’t buy it.
Please understand that I do believe that remaining alive in physical form could very well be dependent upon mass awakening. Unconscious people have killed off good people throughout the centuries and it continues to this day with reckless abandon.
I just don’t believe that this is where it ends. There is either a realm beyond this life or dependency upon the awakening of others must be, by default, the cornerstone of our reason for being. In that case, there is no god that I wish to serve that would put me in such a horrific situation.
I believe that the true Source has a love that is unconditional. It is not dependent upon my awakening or anyone else’s for its existence. It’s the other way around. It allows me to go on my merry way due to free will. My suffering from going the wrong direction is what calls me back.
The only real purpose of our lives is not so much to attempt to awaken others as it is to continue to follow the light within ourselves. Why do I care what others think of me? Why do I not have the guts to stand up to this? Why do I continue to compromise myself in order to get along with people who have absolutely no concept regarding the purpose of their lives? These are the sort of questions we should be asking ourselves.
In this life, we must be willing to stand alone in our understanding. If we take a moment to look around us, we will see that we are not alone. Although this is certainly heartening, it’s not why we do it. But if we look within ourselves, we begin to see that what connects us to these like-minded souls comes from the same place. It’s not up to us whether the masses make this connection and choose to follow it or not. All we can do is tell them the truth.
There is more to life than just this physical incarnation. Whatever our fate, I have every intention of seeing others who have made this connection on the other side. If there is no “other side” for consciousness, then this life is nothing more than a sleep and a forgetting. And that means that there really is no reason to pursue enlightenment at all.
