Mind WorX – Revelation
EVOLUTION of the mind is an internal change that cannot come about by asking for it. The reason is that we simply don’t know what to ask for. How do you ask for something you don’t know? Change of mind can only occur through revelation, not revolution. This revelation has nothing to do with the mystical or the esoteric, but is something quite different.
Revelation is an inner ‘Seeing’ of our need and urgency for change – to observe the need consciously and clearly without trying to bring it about – a seeing that does not occur in time or thought, but occurs instantly – whether the instant is a second or a year doesn’t matter. Revelation is the only way we can totally respond to the challenges confronting us today.
Our response must be new if it is to be successful. We cannot think about it and there is no authority that can advise us – for our thoughts and advice from others can only come from the old and stale past. We need to clearly see the problem we now face without trying to fix it. For that to happen though, something other than thought is needed.
Evolution of our mind is entirely up to us – personally. That may seem impossible and a bit scary for it is completely at odds with how we have tackled change in the past. We are used to relying on the group, society and outside authorities for the answers. This method will not work with the mind.
Only you can change your mind for yourself – YOU – no one else. That is our next evolutionary step and the miracle is, if one person can change – really change, it will be like lighting a candle. From that one flame, every candle in the world can be lit. That is the way true change occurs – personally – from person to person.
Not from institution to institution, not from leader to disciple, but from person to person. This must be done without thought, without trying to make it happen, but by simply being acutely aware of the need for change and the realization that you are quite capable of doing this. The ability has always been there within you.
You cannot take any responsibility for or be obliged to do this for anyone else. This change of mind needs to be very selfish and yet selfless at the same time. The lifting of the veil of ignorance from your mind will automatically spread without any effort on your part to all humanity. You will have lighted the first candle. You have all that is needed right now, at this very moment for the evolution of your mind.
IT CANNOT BE OVEREMPHASIZED OR REPEATED TOO OFTEN:
“Unlike physical evolution, which requires the whole human species to change en masse on the outside – The evolution of the mind requires each human individual to personally change on the inside.”
Although the evolution of mind is a very personal one, as the flame spreads from candle to candle, the result will be a gradual and positive change in the way we view the world we live in. It will be like living on another planet – ‘A New Earth’.
At the moment we are going about it in the wrong way. We are trying to bring about the evolution of our mind using the old methods – by changing what’s on the outside. We create rules, regulations, laws and penalties in a vain attempt to achieve this aim, which is doomed to failure, as we can plainly see in our world today.
We must seek an answer to our dilemma, each and every one of us, personally, for ourselves, without thinking about it, without asking anyone else – when the answer comes – as it will eventually, that is revelation – an instant recognition of the truth – a moment of inspiration.
Evolution of our mind will not change what is physically on the outside so much as our attitude towards it, life will continue on earth as normal. Conscious awareness will certainly not bring about heaven on earth. There will still be sickness, accidents and death. Mother Nature will still vent her fury on regular occasions, causing injury and death to our species.
We will still have our physical existence to contend with. That is part and parcel of our earthly experience. Some of our emotions will remain with us, as they are necessary, but only as a warning to the keeper of our body – the ego, now in its proper place – for our physical survival.
It will be our attitude and the way we look at life that will change. Why? We will be looking through the eyes of our true self, not ego, making the world we see a lot nicer, more peaceful and safer place to live. We will have consciously overcome our greatest hurdle and threat – ourselves.
The evolution of our mind forecasts the evolution of the world – and the world is patiently waiting for its caretaker to graduate into adulthood and become masters of our own destiny.

__________Men of the present time testify of heaven and hell, and have never seen either…
__________and I will say that no man knows these things without this.”- Joseph Smith, Jr.
