Are You Aware?

Article from my blog: http://thehardrightedge.com/are-you-aware/

Who looks outside, dreams; Who looks inside, awakes.     --  Carl Jung

Have we as a people stopped to realize that we are living in a completely unique time period within the history of humanity?  Can you name one other period in humanity where sharing opinions with one another has been so easily achieved and utilized via the internet?  Has there ever been a time in the world with a more integrated worldwide financial and political web on the planet than today?  Has humanity ever been so interconnected with no time delay?  Have there ever been so many distractions for the individual to overcome in order to find himself?  Has there ever been the abundance of available information for digestion by the individual, regardless if it is true or false knowledge.  What are the consequences and risks of living in a society that functions in this unique paradigm compared to the previous civilizations that have thrived and fallen? Can you step out the your unique normalcy perspective and observe a broader and more undefined structure?  Why is society plagued with constant war, corruption and psychological manipulation in the name of profit?  Is humanity about to achieve a new awareness that frees itself from the chains of illusion?

The potential exists to collaborate with one another and evolve as a species into a higher level of consciousness in which individuals strive to understand one another, the self, and reality (and live accordingly).  The challenge is great, the obstacles are daunting, the emotions are volatile, and the threat is ignorance, but the reward is the ability to truly live as a species.  Open your mind, we are apart of a new age in humanity.

The journey starts within your conscious self.  The only thing needed is an open mind coinciding with awareness.

Below are the philosophies of Anthony de Mello, a spiritual teacher.  You can listen to hours of thoughtfully stimulating and perspective changing philosophies on the hosted website for the cost of only your time and attention.  His philosophies have been a great beacon of light in my personal journey for self-awareness.

Illusion quickly drops once awareness is shined upon the emptiness of lies.

Every majority opinion starts as a minority opinion of one.

Heh, the point was conscious

Heh, the point was conscious awareness is an important step in the preparation in the end of the current economic system. All of this prepare accordingly for end of keynesian economics ending together for Europe and the US is vulnerable to the short-coming of imposing loss of liberty in the name of security. 

Something is going to happen so just have your mental game prepared.  Avoiding irrational decisions due to overwhelming emotions instead using reason and thought may be more important than any other aspect of "prepare accordingly." 

Who knows what the future brings, but it certainly can't hurt to be grounded to reality.

I like the post, but.....

One question:  Is the "loss of liberty in the name of security" line an inadvertent preaching to the choir, or are you saying something I missed?  I like the thread, but am not sure where you're going with that line. 

Most, if not all, of the people here (assumption) are willing to sacrifice for their freedom. 

Interesting thread, BTW.
