Mind WorX – Apocalypse

ARMAGEDDON has become the catch cry of the 21st Century. There is no shortage of doomsayers running around like chooks with their heads chopped off insisting that the end of the world is at hand. We have all become familiar with apocalyptic thinking, especially when it comes from a religious source.

At regular intervals the ending of the earth or the return of Christ is foretold. For a start, the earth is robust and resilient, having withstood many onslaughts in the past without blowing to smithereens. Even if it did eventuate, and there is always a possibility of course, it would have nothing to do with some spurious prediction.

As far as Christ is concerned, He would not be game to show his face on earth at the present time. What with the – gun happy, shoot ‘em dead, ask questions later attitude mankind has – he would be shot as a terrorist or alien before he had a chance to explain who he was.

Every time some prediction is made, anticipation reaches fever pitch and then the days go by and nothing happens. Indeed, it seems that every few years another date for the rapture or end of the world or the return of Christ is set. Then speculation dies down once again until still another date is set by yet another fanatical religious leader with messianic conviction.

Some preach that we are reaching some sort of culmination of history and that we need an era defining event to pave the way to a new future. The year 2012, the final year of the Mayan calendar is said to be when there will be a dramatic change.

In the latest world news, a US company is offering underground shelters for sale (to the select few that have the cash to buy a cubicle) as protection from the expected 2012 disaster. It is postulated, that this extreme event could be caused by a rogue comet, tsunami, terrorism, EMP, (a burst of electromagnetic radiation) solar flare or something they cannot even contemplate.

It is preached that the apocalypse will be an event that is dramatically outside the normal process of history and will change everything, lifting the majority of humanity to a higher level of consciousness and creating a more enlightened future. This is speculated to be of a cataclysmic and sudden, eruptive event.

Such premonitions cause fear and panic throughout our world, and if we are on the ball, we would twig that fear and panic is of the ego. In fact the whole apocalyptic prophecy, (not the event itself, which is unpredictable) is a scare tactic perpetrated by the ego, for it certainly does not want us to evolve mentally, as that would mean the end of its reign over our mind.

Any extreme event of this sort has nothing to do with the evolution of our physical selves or our minds. Evolution is normal and natural, not extreme. It will certainly not be an apocalyptic event. We definitely won’t wake up one morning to find that, Abracadabra; we are suddenly an enlightened species.

Whatever physical events that happen in our world is governed by Mother Nature, not by us or some physic premonition or phenomenon. If something does happen, and that is always a possibility at any time of course, as physical existence is unpredictable, it will be a natural event that is completely apart and separate from our evolution as a species.

Not to say that an apocalyptic event would not affect our evolution, of course it would, the same way as any other extreme event that has happened before on earth since we have been here. It will not be the cause of our evolving in a certain way however, but only a side effect.

The evolution of the mind can be explained as really being a spiritual evolution, or – spiritual realization. Our mind has been under the control of the ego for the last few million years. That was necessary for our survival, but now that is not a requisite – our mind must evolve to keep up with the times.

Our minds have been compensating for the last few hundred years at least, now we must catch up to our physical evolution. This is as it should be. We are exactly on track. There is a good reason why we have physically evolved at the expense of our mind.

That reason has now been fulfilled, the lessons have been learned and it is now time for us to move on, to advance as a species on a predetermined path. All of this is leading us to our destination. The evolution of the mind is the spiritual or conscious awareness of who we really are.

By awakening to who we really are whatever we do we will do consciously, not unconsciously as we have been doing. Awakened doing is the next stage of consciousness in the physical world. The closer we get to this evolutionary stage, the more dysfunctional the ego becomes, as can be witnessed in the world today.

We are in the midst of a momentous event in the evolution of human consciousness, but they won’t be talking about it on the news tonight. It won’t be sudden; it will be a very gradual awakening (that has already begun) and has nothing to do with Armageddon or the end of the world, or the return of Christ.

Mankind is on the right evolutionary path to conscious awareness whether we know it or not. It is the way it is meant to be. Have trust…All is well.
