Unity Consciousness ~ Is It Happening? ~ Is it Practical?
Unity consciousness is an idea that has been around for as long as consciousness has been recorded. It shows up in all of the spiritual teachings as Love. So what is new now? And, how is it manifesting?
I once searched for some tangible manifestation of ideas. How do they manifest? And, do they serve any material purpose? I found a book that was written by an artist. He explained the manifestation of ideas as a triangle of creation. For instance, an artist may be inspired with an idea. The idea becomes her creation as music, painting sculpture, architecture, etc. In the process of molding the idea into form, the idea enters the mental field and other artists pick up the same idea. Soon there are many similar creations. These creations become more popular and emotionally desirable. The idea begins to spread. As it spreads it becomes less pure but more pervasive. For instance, it enters the world of fashion, furniture making, and the creation of tools and buildings. From this point it belongs to everyone.
I remembered this explanation as I studied and meditated with ideas in an Alice Bailey group. These ideas were so new at the time that even though the books were already thirty or more years old, no one really understood them. We were told not to openly discuss what we were studying because unless we truly understood them we would distort the ideas and discredit their source. The advice was to personally live the principles and see how they worked in our own life.
Now these same ideas of right human relations, sharing, group consciousness, Unity in diversity, etc. have been transformed into the spiritual and ecological movement of today. In my part of the world in California it is not uncommon to explain what is happening in terms of energy. This would have been unheard of forty years ago. Are there distortions to the original ideas? Of course! This is the path of creation, from idea to physical form. Once the idea is out and more and more people pick it up, it becomes the creation of each one who works with it.
Today we are expecting the birth of Unity Consciousness. We have the dates foretold by the Mayan calendar to look forward to. October 28th is the first big one coming up. I believe the birth of this idea is an organic creation. It comes from the 99% of us tuning into the idea of “Unity” as it exists on the mental and emotional planes. The idea has been evolving for a long time. We are just beginning to see its material creation. I think we see it in the many, “Take Back,” demonstrations which are breaking out spontaneously all over the world. It is sometimes messy. It sometimes distorts the original idea, but this is the way of creation. There may be outward chaos, but the strength of this movement is in its inner connections. The fact that most of this activity is spontaneous and peaceful is encouraging to me. It is an indication that the Soul of Humanity is its source of direction.
Will it get organized? Is it safe from manipulation of sinister forces who would use it to herd us again? I believe it is Spirit driven and watched over by our waiting guides, by whatever name you want to give them. Unity Consciousness is an idea whose time has come. It is ripe for manifestation. The outer manifestation, the organization of it, its outer goals will evolve according to the needs of all of us, for individual freedom to experience abundance, peace, beauty, and love. It will be in alignment with the needs of the many other beings of nature who live with us on this planet. And, it will be in alignment with Gaia, Herself, and her need to ascend to greater perfection.
Blessings of Unity, Peace, and True Insight,
