Conscious reality is under siege today, challenged by erroneous notions from centuries past. Although dressed in fancy names, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, these fictions are gaining unchallenged traction by the minute. It is time to call a halt.
I’m not speaking of positive law versus natural law, a new world order, or even of raising one’s consciousness or vibrations. The matter is far more fundamental and of far greater importance than those discussions, vital though they be. It boils down to this question. Is consciousness a property of each living woman or man, each a single soul, or are we instead an individuated expression of a unified consciousness that embraces us all?
Hail the new reality
Every day of the week new articles implore our need of a new understanding, We are implored to grasp a new map of reality so to speak, one divulging a greater truth than anything in our past has discussed or accepted. The central belief, so it seems, is that all living humans are inherently part of a collective field of consciousness which resonates within us.
The founding tenet of this purported ‘conscious reality’ is that Creator is Omnipresent within all creation, which some call Unity Consciousness. In other words, we all exist within the one unified field, oft expressed as ‘all is one.’ Many believe that traumas and strife proceed from divisions of, or separation from this unity, and that freedom from adversity will result from mending these fractures and shifting into ‘service to others.’
Law of One
The phrase ‘service to others’ is synonymous with the Law of One. What is that?
Simply put, the Law of One is the Universal Truth that All Is One. It is the Truth taught by Christ when he proclaimed, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” We are all direct expressions of the One Source God Source. The Law of One is an energetic reality as well as a creational covenant with the Founder Races. The Law of One is practiced by the Advanced Races that promote self responsibility and accountability in our Universal Time Matrix through the comprehension of the interconnection between all living things. The Law of One expresses and acknowledges the interconnection, value, and interdependence of the spirit and consciousness that animates all things.—GSF Ascension Glossary
The last sentence seemingly argues that Mankind should evolve toward greater collaboration, cooperation, coherence, and cohesion. Further, these qualities will contribute to a thriving, sustainable future, in total contrast to division, conflict, competition or fear, all of which thrive today. Few if any will disagree that position, but does that answer the question that I posted?
To whom does consciousness belong?
Is ‘consciousness’ universal, just because many share one ideal? In all history our ‘collective consciousness’ is most needed right now, so these proponents say.
Great caution is urged. Are we to believe ‘collective consciousness,’ or ‘unity consciousness’ supplants individual/personal consciousness. If so, the ‘collective’ is arbitrator of our life and free will is a nonsense. Individual life is sacrificed to the whole.
What drives this notion of collective conscious reality that we’re urged to adopt? Some of the most influential figures in history help answer that question.
Rousseau (1712–78), French philosopher and writer, born in Switzerland, believed that civilisation warps the fundamental goodness of human nature, and that although human freedom is a fact of nature, people should be taught to believe that it is dangerous; whereby they ought to sacrifice their individual nature to the artificial condition of citizenship. According to Rousseau, natural persons should become artificial persons, i.e., citizens — wittingly or unwittingly, — willingly or by legal compulsion. Many socialists agree.
Marx, Karl (1818–83), German political philosopher and economist, endorsed a universal socialism, asserting that only the human species can be free; no individual human being can be. Individual freedom is an illusion, he claimed. Marx called those who identify themselves with humanity as a whole to be universal individuals. These species-beings, he argued, who know themselves to be identical with the human race are true communists, representing the superior evolution of mankind. Moreover, they should not be dissuaded by illusions of morality and justice among those still mired in the false consciousness of their particular individuality.
Dewey, John (1859–1952), American philosopher and father of pragmatism and modern liberalism, explains the collectivist notion as—
“Society in its unified and structural character is the fact of the case; the non-social individual is an abstraction arrived at by imagining what man would be if all his human qualities were taken away. Society, as a real whole, is the normal order, and the mass as an aggregate of isolated units is the fiction.”
Politicians and power-seekers are empowered by this centuries-long chain of ideological collectivism. It seems therefore that proponents of ‘unity consciousness’ embrace the same tenets; ‘universal socialism’ now dressed as ‘service to others’—this a subject for another post.
Notwithstanding, it remains that (conscious) like-mindedness is not consciousness. Consciousness is process, not a product. It is a mental processing capability within our being, just as lungs, heart, liver, and kidneys are processing faculties. At the cognitive level, consciousness is ‘identification,’ the faculty of personal investigation, analysis, and discrimination, our tool of survival—the subconscious mind its silent partner. Accordingly there is no such thing as a collective (or unity) consciousness, any more than exists a unified stomach, kidney or brain.
Common understanding amongst many folks is the product of individual conscious investigation and analysis. That is our conscious reality. We, each, are blessedly unique. Although we may share the aspirations of a billion others, it is our consciousness, our private mental process that chooses our path, goals, and aspirations, not theirs. Our ardent fervour and passion for life’s joys are the (individual) product of personal consciousness. They are not part of another’s but may accord with others.
Accordingly, our consciousness is uniquely and individually ours, not open to (collectivised) usurpation in any form whatsoever. Does this allow for Mankind to evolve toward greater collaboration, cooperation, coherence, and cohesion? Yes, absolutely—it is Creator’s faculty endowed expressly for that purpose.
Our consciousness, is the conscious reality within each of us. It is definitive and personal, by nature, whereby ‘collective consciousness’ is a grossly misleading misnomer, as ‘Law from Within’ makes abundantly clear.
