We Have it Within Ourselves to Raise our Conscious Level and That of Humanity – New Article

Share

Observing the inner and outer worldWe should take the time to know how we respond inwardly to life, because by changing ourselves and allowing consciousness to shine, we change not only our own lives but those of others around us, and, if enough people raise their conscious level, we can bring about a real change for good in the world.

If we don’t understand ourselves, no matter how many victories for truth there are, the inner level of the majority will keep dragging society downwards into corruption, disorder, and destruction. And even those who pursue truth in the world are not immune to the adverse effects of the subconscious.

All of us live in the present moment – it’s a quality of being alive, but it’s the way we perceive it that can make huge difference to our lives.

Within us is a multitude of constantly changing thoughts, feelings and emotions, and not all of it is good. In fact, in the subconscious are awful inner states that are usually hidden from awareness and that are the roots of corruption and destruction.

  1. Thank you for this article!
    According my understanding one of your points is what some theories call “critical mass”. A minimum amount of people who could change the state of the world. This could happen by both sides though… And i feel in myself the danger someone standing by the side who thinks that is not.
    Points also the need of spreading those universal Teachings so more people experience them.
    Really thank you for that, even i had read before it gave me new insights!
    Thank you everyone for your comments too!

  2. It can be very daunting to see the amount of darkness and deceit negatively affecting the course of the world. It can seem impossible to go against it. But I think the difficulty lies not only in taking the actual actions for good and by being active, but in facing the inner unpleasant states that such an event will undoubtedly bring up.

    (I mean who likes to face problems such as; a sexually degenerated music industry of black rituals, a food industry that is poisoning the world, a global agenda to implement a police sate, endless wars for sinister ulterior motives, the media that has become a vehicle of distraction, propaganda and censorship, the consequences of a staged fake ‘alien’ attack, spreading a spiritual message that is so unknown in the world etc…..
    And as an added bonus facing a population that is unaware of it all, doesn’t understand or doesn’t seem to care. Yet at the same time with some people very willing to go against you, ridiculing, calling names and worse.)

    The obstacle in the world triggers these big inner states within us. And I think this is what many people run away from (if a person even understands the problem in the first place.) And if instead of running you decide to ‘acknowledge’ this heavy problem, internally it seems the ‘animal psyche’ naturally doesn’t like this unpleasantness and wants to get rid of it by fixing the problem externally. You’re then bound by these heavy emotional states and compulsive thoughts that are linked to the external problem until the time that the external problem is fixed.

    Now that doesn’t seem the right way to do things. And I’ve seen in myself how this, coupled with other factors, can drag one down internally. Horrible for our self and our internal work. And on top of that, how will we be able to help others in that state?

    How to stay unattached internally, yet act fully with strength? How to do the internal work the best we can as well as do all we can to help others? This is something I’m trying to learn to do through practice, but it’s certainly not easy to get it right.

  3. Thanks very much for bringing these issues into perspective. It is amazing how much good it would do for each person to practice what you describe.

    I think what you describe here is so important to understand:
    “It’s in our own interests to change, because if we don’t know what is within us, it controls us beyond our awareness and we react and act automatically to life often in not the best ways, as it is determined by states that can be beyond our conscious will.”

    I would imagine that most people can relate to having experienced this, looking back at events that took place in their lives. It’s inspiring to consider that, simply by gaining an understanding of ourselves throughout the day, we can act and make decisions based on this higher intelligence and consciousness instead.

    This way of living makes life so much more purposeful, as we can learn so much from each moment and experience that feeling of conscious perception and being alive.

    Thanks again for this inspiring article.

  4. I got a lot out of reading this. Like others there were a number of passages that really stood out and “hit me” internally, based on things I’ve experienced lately.

    “…if we don’t know what is within us, it controls us beyond our awareness and we react and act automatically to life often in not the best ways [...] This means not only that people can easily adversely affect how we feel and what we do, but that people can be unconsciously influenced and manipulated”

    This made me reflect anew about how weak we really are without self-knowledge. We are bound by our desires and the needs of subconscious states, so that events and the words and opinions of others can control how we feel, what we think, and decisions we make.

    Conversely, it’s really incredible to see how consciousness freed from these inner states can be objective and impartial and how liberating this is. Actual psychological freedom and independence is something so rarely experienced and yet so much worth striving for.

    Another passage that stood out to me,

    “Consciousness needs the mind as its intermediary between itself and form.”

    I think I need to explore this much further, but I found it very interesting on a number of levels.

    It immediately cast a much clearer light on a diagram from “Flight of the Feathered Serpent” (http://belsebuub.com/sacred-texts) showing mind as a kind of intermediary.

    When first studying awareness and self-observation, I had for some reason an idea that the mind is just a tool to be used when thinking needed to be done and that it had no part in consciousness actually manifesting.

    Reading this now suggests that this idea is mistaken to some degree, but even beyond that, it made me wonder at how much my efforts have been and are influenced by underlying ideas of how things are — ideas which may be inaccurate — and how these ideas shape and influence what I experience in subtle ways.

    It really reinforces the need to investigate things objectively and see past any preconceived ideas to experience something new.

    I could go on and on — these were just two things that stood out prominently.

    All in all, a lot of insight and inspiration in this article. Thanks!

    • “Consciousness needs the mind as its intermediary between itself and form.”

      That stood out as an interesting point to me as well, Justin. Thanks for sharing your thoughts – great insights.

      • Yes, this one stood out for me too, and how important it is to fight to have a clear mind. If the mind is all busy with incoherent chatter, poor consciousness has no chance to perceive things clearly when this “intermediary” is clouded. :-(

  5. Thank you Belsebuub for this article.

    It’s very intersting for me, even inspiring to read this
    “If we don’t understand ourselves, no matter how many victories for truth there are, the inner level of the majority will keep dragging society downwards into corruption, disorder, and destruction. And even those who pursue truth in the world are not immune to the adverse effects of the subconscious.”

    You clarify very well this issue, in order nobody has any illussions about himself.

    One other interesting paragraph is that already Layla mentioned:
    “It’s in our own interests to change, because if we don’t know what is within us, it controls us beyond our awareness and we react and act automatically to life often in not the best ways, as it is determined by states that can be beyond our conscious will. This means not only that people can easily adversely affect how we feel and what we do, but that people can be unconsciously influenced and manipulated, and that is very dangerous for society.”
    How much shoking is this. Maybe I’ve already known about this, but how much strong is to be posed so clearly, without justifications, traps of minds and so on.

    Thank you very much again!

  6. Very refreshing article, thank you.

  7. When I first read this article at the beginning of the day, along with the other one on inner peace & awareness of the present moment, I knew right away the perspective of spirituality I needed to take for that day. For the last few days the feelings I got from reading the articles keep coming back and reminding me what a critical part of awakening it is to nurture consciousness and to bathe in its emanations.

    For whatever reason I am left with feeling how possible and capable I am of living my life more devoted to capturing those moments of peace and learning about my self through self-observing.

    It feels that this was the missing link of my struggles for the last month or so, and all the questions and reflections of my struggles have been solved by this very basic reminder.

    What hit me a lot too, was what was written here:

    ”If we don’t understand ourselves, no matter how many victories for truth there are, the inner level of the majority will keep dragging society downwards into corruption, disorder, and destruction. And even those who pursue truth in the world are not immune to the adverse effects of the subconscious.”

    I have seen this first hand in the past few weeks while trying to speak out about the UK censorship on spirituality with various communities, and getting varying responses of interest, enthusiasm and rejection. It seems that no matter how positive an effect we can have, the deeper problem is in the state of consciousness as I easily could see people affected by each other, or their own inner states or how a certain negative response changes my own internal state if I am not careful. What it comes down to is not just a victory of stopping the censorship, but perhaps trying to extract insight from why its there in the first place so that we as a society do not hold that affinity to bring something so destructive like this again. Likewise, if I don’t bring the remembrance of spirituality and consciousness in what I am doing, I may be moving in a seemingly good direction, but without the inner light.

    Thank you so much Belsebuub for the reminder of consciousness and the hope you have left me with.

  8. This was a really uplifting article; it’s so easy to lose sight of the potential the work upon ourselves has for others!

  9. Like others have said, this article was particularly synchronistic for me too, but more on a personal level.

    It’s just so apparent how events and people around us can affect our state (and vice versa) and it’s inspiring to read this article. It reminds us what a powerful opportunity we have to understand and change ourselves and, subsequently, help those around us.

  10. Thank you for this article. I have just had a very long and very hectic work day. Reading this really simplifies things. Very clear, concise and inspiring read. Will try harder at work tomorrow to raise the conscious level of my workplace :)

  11. Wow, I really can’t believe the synchronicity of this article, it was something I was reflecting on today and feeling a need for it to be communicated to help people (and myself included) to understand the importance of consciousness.

    This paragraph below really stood out for me

    “It’s in our own interests to change, because if we don’t know what is within us, it controls us beyond our awareness and we react and act automatically to life often in not the best ways, as it is determined by states that can be beyond our conscious will. This means not only that people can easily adversely affect how we feel and what we do, but that people can be unconsciously influenced and manipulated, and that is very dangerous for society.”

    Often we seek the world to improve and for others to change in order for our own condition or situation to improve, and yet it never goes very far, no matter what our technological, financial or other opportunities may be, if we don’t start with ourselves. I find this article so empowering and uplifting because it really brings home that change in the world is within our own individual grasp, as are the many benefits that come with it that become permanent qualities of who we are.

    I also feel that this is very important for any truth seeker, because its very hard to seek the truth if inside ourselves we are not aware of our own subjective egocentric drives that distort the search or weaken it.

    Thank you for such valuable insights!

    • I agree Layla. I think the most important part of working to influence positive change in the world really comes down to how much we can change ourselves within during the process. In any case, the better we become, the greater the possibility to inspire real change, seeing as we then have more consciousness with which to help and hopefully demonstrate and lead by example.

    • This was a really synchronistic article for me as well. I was just talking about this with someone yesterday, almost to the word, but the possibility for influencing the world is something I hadn’t really considered.

      Today, as Michelle and I watched the sunset, we were reflecting on how just by changing inwardly and doing the work of awakening, we have such a potential to reach and help anyone who might be searching for tools to know themselves and change. And incredibly, there are people out there who really want to change.

    • Patricia A. says:

      “I also feel that this is very important for any truth seeker, because its very hard to seek the truth if inside ourselves we are not aware of our own subjective egocentric drives that distort the search or weaken it.”

      I agree with this comment Layla. Making a real effort to seek the truth becomes thwarted if we allow ourselves to ignore and continue to feed our egocentric states, which does not help with the efforts to bring about a positive change in this world. Belsebuub makes an important point right at the beginning of this article about taking the time to study ourselves in order to bring about self-knowledge and progressive change.
