Evolution Continues

Has evolution stopped? Is the present form of the human race the ultimate expression of form and consciousness? The answer is that it had better not be. The group consciousness of the entire population of the world is what generates the current conditions and circumstances of humanity.

Even the most cursory investigation reveals that we humans, both scientifically and spiritually, have a long way to go. What is even more disturbing is the fact that we are using up the planet faster than the planet can replace what we use. Oil is our biggest concern now, but it is very evident that water and pure air are being put under stress now too. We have generated a technological society that produces wastes that we are not able to neutralize. Thus we are in the very real situation of making uninhabitable the only place we have to live. We are sowing the seeds of our own destruction and not facing the fact that if we have no water and air to sustain life it will not matter how big our bank accounts are. Fortunately, there are people like us, who know that evolution must take place in order for the human race to continue.

For a moment, let's compare ourselves to a school of fish in the sea long ago. Like fish in the sea, we understand that there is something beyond the surface of the sea that we see above us. We are accustomed to living the the water and are not sure what lies above us, but we know that now and then we see things that let us know that something else is up there but we don't know for sure what it is.

One day a fish reports to us that it jumped out of the water and, for a brief moment, landed on dry land and saw the wonders of the earth spread out before it. It came back to report on what it saw but no one was curious enough to jump out of the water with him to see for them selves what lies out there beyond. The fish who had seen what was above them all tried and tried to convince his other friends to join him in this new realm but the others thought he was crazy or delusional and went on their way. The fish knew what he saw and one day swam up to the shore, climbed out, and proceeded to evolve until he could readily function in the new environment of dry land. The only difference between the evolved fish and the others was that the fish made a decision to evolve and thus allowed evolution to continue with him.

This is where humanity is now. Evolution must continue but in order for it to happen we must make the decision to allow it to happen. What is the process needed to partake in the evolution of the future. How can I, one solitary individual, affect the direction of humankind?
The fact is you can, if you decide to. The process you will need to make this happen is the subject of all future blogs. I look forward to having you along on the journey, till next time.
