We aren’t there yet, but personally I hold onto the belief that at some point humanity will be. My True Will, my Life’s Purpose is to aid others in finding that peace and harmony within themselves so that they can aid others in finding it within themselves. At the present time, there is so much fear manifested on the earth plane. And fear is contagious, actually all emotions are contagious, especially when they are fueled by the energy of individuals who aren’t necessarily projecting that emotion, but are aligned with it and perpetually add their own energy to that existing bundle of energy. This creates a building momentum that then blossoms and gives birth to a thoughtform. Thoughtforms bombard each of us on a daily basis and if we are not aware of them, we will react to them as if they were our own thoughts and emotions, even though they were created by someone else. We react to these unseen influences emotionally, which can be corrosive to our overall well-being.
Though the saying “People fear what they do not know” may be cliché and overused, I find it to be a true statement. Perhaps some individuals use this understanding as an excuse to cultivate the fear they hold into an energy that is less passive and more active such as hate, but it doesn’t make the state any less true. Unfortunately many individuals chose to stay ignorant, even when given the opportunity to gain knowledge, which would lead them to an understanding and compassion about that which they fear / are ignorant about. It is even possible and probable in some instances that the individual intentionally remains ignorant so that they can feel justified in promoting hate and actively engaging in acts of hate, but even then, this individual and their behavior does not negate the truth within the statement that “people fear what they do not know.”
With our modern technology and the availability of the internet we are able to become educated about almost any subject even if it is just the surface knowledge, however sometimes individuals do not possess the motivation to seek this knowledge; be it cultural influences that the individual embraces, or concerns about retaliation from family members, friends, or community if they were to educate themselves, or perhaps some other personal reason to remain uninformed. It is because of an emotional response that keeps them ignorant.
Human beings operate from their heart and not their mind, well, most human beings do. We respond with emotions and feelings instead of intellect and logic. It is a response that can clearly be witnessed when interacting with someone, and I am certain you could identify the emotional responses within yourself. Take a moment right now and consider it. Think about what your first reactions are to; the music you hear, words you read, things you touch with your hands, food you eat or smell … do you analyze these things logically before you determine whether you enjoy them or not? Or do you respond with a feeling before you take time to analyze why you feel this way about it? I think that if you are honest with yourself, you will realize that you are responding with your emotions first and intellect second. This is because our emotions are of a higher vibrational frequency and are quicker than the vibrational frequency of our intellect. I recently had a conversation with my husband about the very topic and he shared with me what he had read in the book, In Search of the Miraculous written by Peter D. Ouspensky, which stated, “Emotion is much quicker than thought and responds instantly to many situations.”; and in analyzing myself and contemplating this concept I foun this to be true.
Once humanity is able to recognize that we respond to outside influences with emotions and be more aware of ourselves enabling us to embrace the personal responsibility of our subjective reactions, we will be able to find a way to align more fully with love, peace, and harmony and propel humanity towards our next evolution as a species, towards our desired Ascension.
