Our Mind’s Evolution
MANKIND NEEDS TO GROW UP mentally to keep pace with our physical evolution. This is better explained as being more of a spiritual evolution or realization. Our mind has been dominated by our primal self (the ego) since the beginning. That was necessary for our survival, but now that is not a requisite – our mind must now evolve further.
We are a violent species. None of us like to be told that… but we are. We won’t admit it for that would disrupt our own pristine self image. Such an accusation causes anger – and anger is a form of violence
There’s an old saying, ‘The truth hurts.’ The only reason we resist the truth is that we don’t want to get out of the comfort zone of blaming someone else for the wrongs of the world instead of looking for the cause within our own self. In truth no one is to blame…. but we are all responsible for mankind’s advancement.
When you are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings.
Then you will forget your anger.~ Epictetus
Our mental evolution has remained static while we physically matured, now our mind must catch up. It’s becoming critical that we each pay close attention to the way we react to life’s problems. We must move forward with awareness of what’s going on in our minds.
The evolution of the mind is the spiritual or conscious awareness of who we really are. Once awakened, whatever we do will be done consciously, not unconsciously as we have done in the past. ‘Awakened doing’ is the next stage of our mind’s evolutionary path in the physical world…
Dan’s Quote: “Sin is simply resistance to what is.”
