We can only attack passively by spreading knowledge, We must educated people. It is going to take a natural disaster on an enormous scale for people
to realize they are no longer in control of anything. U2U me with some ideas if you may.
The whole notion of self and the true nature of the human being is now up for re-evaluation. The 20th century was the century of the self. The 21st
century is and will continue to be the century of the human being, and all manner of transpersonal experiences and psychology. Undo the self, and God
is realized in eternity. Think of a 1000 pedalled Lotus, of a whole Vinyard of emergent Christ-consciousness, of everything that was old, made new and
functional yet again!
It is absolutely inevitable that we will collectively turn away from all materialist distraction and re-pose the most fundmental question that man has
been asking for a very long time - who am I, and what am I? and what is this and what's it all for, although it won't be like some sort of hippiesh
"new age" nonsense, a mere platitude, or a question for which we begin by assuming it has no answer, chuckle and shrug it off, since there is nothing
now of greater importance, meaning and significance, facing the human race, and even the whole weight of human history is now posing this very
question TO us, rather emphatically, demanding to be heard ie: just WTF were you THINKING?!
And the "sign" if you will, the supreme test or the measurement as to its progress, will be the degree to which we both take ourselves infinitely more
seriously as beings made in the image of God, and the degree to which we cannot help but laugh uproariously at the utter absurdity of our folly, born
of the egoic structure, of nothing more or less than petty selfishness.
Once people start REALLY questioning the self, and the nature of the self, then they begin automatically to awaken from the highly constrained prison
of an assumed localized "me" exclusive to the individual body.
Reminds me of a clip from that movie Phenomenon with John Travolta where he becomes a super genious from a brain tumor that he experiences as a flash
of light one night on his birthday, and as the tumour grows it activates vast regions of the unused brain, and at a fair where he performs
telekenesis, he describes the human being like a certain species of tree (i forget which one) who's root system makes it the largest organism in the
So that's my suggestion - undo the self, or show people how it is inevitable that the self is up for re-evaluation at this moment and turning point in
history, and once they turn their awareness and attention towards the self which cannot be found, then God-consciousness, Christ-consciousness,
whatever you want to call it, Cosmic Awareness etc. will be realized, and once the mind changes shape it can never go back to it's original
configuration, there is no turning back and he who looks back isn't fit to plow the field.
The whole egoic structure, as that little quiet enlightened man from Vancouver, Eckhart Tolle has pointed out, must and will inevitably fall, and then
one of the first things we'll do is begin to treat everyone as equals no matter who they are, or what their social "stature", and laugh out loud
together at our own foolishness and absurdity, or at least the absurity of who we THOUGHT we were, and then the whole tree, from what Carl Jung called
the rhizome, which come busting through the ground and enter the scene, what the Mayan's and the Bible referred to as the Tree of Life, which is not
an "it" but a person, and it's also the person of Jesus Christ returned, not from anywhere in particular, or in any one in particular, but from
everywhere and all directions at once, both as an emergent bottom up phenomenon, and causally as a top down phenomenon born (requiring nothing more
than our permission to come) out of the incorruptible source, the first/last cause and the alpha and omega of existence. A free flow of life in
eternity, absent the tree of the duality of the knowledge of good and evil (hard black and white judgements).
Open mindedness, willingness and fearless honesty, with an unfathonable love capable of transcending the very deepest of sorrow and suffering, will be
the means, and the catalyst to action, our own modern history, now strewn around as the garbage that it is, or was. The data, is in. The materialist
selfish way, is crap. It didn't work, and is unworkable. Time to shed that and leave it all behind, and try on a whole new set of garments, as
children of light and love.
Where one or two here and there did it long ago, this will begin to happen en mass, and it's already started I can see it everywhere now. I am it, or
part of it, part of the process itself, not a thing.
All with those to hear let them hear (ie: it's non coercise, non judgemental, nothing more than an open invitation for consideration), a light burden,
an easy yoke.
There is nothing now hidden which will not be made known and brought to light.
And the meek shall inherit the earth - took long enough!
Let it begin, I humbly ask and pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
