We Are Social Animals
YOU ARE ON A MISSION OF EVOLUTION. The motivating force that keeps you moving forward is a natural wish of the universe to expand and develop. We are all included in this natural expansion – and that expansion includes becoming consciously aware of who you really are.
Who you think you are correlates collectively to who we think we are as a species – and both individually and collectively we are under the delusion that we are this human body that cocoons us and a thinking mind that overwhelms us – but that is not so.
By nature we are social animals, (with the emphasis on ‘animals’). This means that the controlling factor in our social-ness – which collectively makes us a ‘Society’ – is the ego (the instinctual animal, or physical-ness of ourselves).
Our societal approach to life is largely unconscious, therefore prone to controls being imposed by the selfish, ignorant few who have surreptitiously gained the upper hand. They do this unconsciously of course to ensure the unconsciousness of the masses and therefore society as a whole continues to run rampant.
That doesn’t let us off the hook, for by implication we are all to blame. We are willing participants in our social structure, but to try and do something to alleviate the problems of society only makes us as bad as them, for we tend to create our own rules to replace theirs.
Rather than doing something, we need to become consciously aware of the restrictions that society brings to our freedom. Once we are consciously aware, we will evolve into much more compassionate Social Beings rather than the ‘social animals’ that we presently are – We need an Apocalypse.
“Very few people know that the original Greek translation of ‘Apocalypse’ means ‘lifting the veil’ or ‘revelation’… A disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an area dominated by falsehood and misconception. Far from being a horrible experience, Apocalypse represents the revealing of the true nature of things. It ushers in an era of forgotten freedoms and unprecedented clarity. This ‘lifting of the veil’ will set us free from the misery that has been the result of our ignorance.”~ Collective Evolution

I very much like your approach Dan. We are indeed social animals, who are evolving. To try to quote Eckhart Tolle (can’t remember his exact words) but he proposes that we are an organism, “the self” being somewhat an illusion, and we are the product of history. He avoids talking about good or evil in history, but just that it is.
Although it may be hard to totally subscribe or grasp this, I can see the analogy. Humanity growing up through history’s lessons, just as a person cannot be called bad when he was a child and turned good when he grew up. A child is but a child after all.
The lifting of the veil may be when we, humanity, as a whole, grow up.
