If you want to get real - no masks, no cons, no squeamishness

2012-02-14 04:09

Wisdom is about transforming consciousness. Consciousness is present self awareness and existence. Consciousness is your present state of life - where you are at this moment. Consciousness is your life. At the core of your consciousness are dark spots, emptiness and sadness. Transformation of consciousness is a term that is used to describe all human activities that are geared at moving you beyond your consciousness: your existence which at its core are dark spots, sadness, emptiness and persistent sinking dark feeling.

All people of the world, in whatever continent, country or geographic locale there is in the totality of scheme of things each has dark spots, emptiness and a feeling of dark hollowness that you can sense in your spirit. This is the history of the human being - that he find himself not full and complete, it is the the nature of the human race no matter how many things of the world you gather and pile on yourself calling yourself successful and fulfilled the fact of the matter is that there is still vague aspiration of something that is beyond your reach that is elusive. That is the case of your life, if you want to be honest with yourself. If you want to get real - no masks, no cons, no squeamishness, no self deceiving.

Throughout history educational programs has been developed to transform consciousness. Ancient ways of life was the recognition of dark human nature. In the modern days universities and research centres have been built in an effort to know and have knowledge and with that knowledge be able to improve our lives and become better people than people who lived in ancient times. It has been the foolhardiness of our false existence that as human race we often look back in history and think that we are better than past generations. This very aspect is at the core of human ill; to self deceive and think you are better than another person, or your generation is better than the past generation. Or your tribe or race is better than the other.

Of the modern wisdom, psychology has been developed seeking to transform consciousness.And the whole personal development industry of coaches and life experts has mushroomed. But it is getting bad and worse. With all the energy that has been invested in building places of knowledge and learning, our existences has plunged into crass misery and darkness that was never experience by previous generations.

Never in history, did you have that kind of sadness that is clamping down on people of the modern day: unhappy married couples, marriages that lacks sanity with no genuine devotion to each other, single parents choking the world. Parents confess that their grown up children are too busy to see them. Parting and indulging in fleshly sensations - having fun is the goal of life with the concomitant result of alienation from God and therefore resembling animals that have no souls and realisation of God.

People meeting on the Internet and bars offer what one sociologist calls “those infinitely sad confidences”. Because of the corrosive loneliness , clanging emptiness and sadness platforms such as facebook have billions of people subscribing seeking to connect and have friends. Facebook in fact is loneliness and emptiness widespread and becoming paradoxically a shared experience aggravating the pain of emptiness and sadness. Friends, real friends are becoming harder to have than the ancient times.
