Before a person receives Consciousness they’re just another animal — albeit a sophisticated one. We tacitly assume everyone has Consciousness because people can walk upright, carry on in conversation and generally act civil. However, some people are merely domesticated primates — they only have a highly developed brain supplemented by a complex language system. But you can teach a chimp one of our languages; doesn’t mean they have Consciousness.
This new paradigm, this new consensus that Christ is our personal Consciousness — is key to lifting the veil of ignorance that has kept us in fear of each other. Incidentally, Apocalypse literally means, ‘lifting the veil.‘ This revelation of God within us will unite us on higher mental levels causing, by reflex action, peace on earth.
The original purpose of government and religion was to create in a world where they were no longer needed. They taught us the proper ways to act towards one another: Thou shalt not kill, steal or lie; thou shalt love thy neighbor as theyself. The problem, however, is that these institutions became magnets for psychopaths who have no sympathy for you or your problems. Repeat this after me: Power does not corrupt — the corrupt seek power. But the joke is on them, because, like I said, these institutions were designed to be destroyed by the very powers that created them . . . us.
At some point the ruling class realized this beautiful irony — that a truly effective government would eventually render itself obsolete. And so it’s no coincidence that the very same people who tell us we need them to protect us from criminals are the same people who CREATE crime and poverty! They do it by making certain things illegal which in turn creates a criminal class. We the people learned the lesson of prohibition — and most of us are banging our head against the wall trying to figure why our politicians haven’t learned the same lesson. Well it’s easy to understand if you accept a simple but depressing truth: Power does not corrupt — the corrupt seek power. That’s it. Mystery solved: our elected officials are not stupid and they don’t mean well.
But this doesn’t have to be depressing if we accept responsibility for the situation we’re in. In fact, this all ties back into promoting Consciosuness. The issue with Consciousness is autonomy. Conversely, the issue with animals is hierarchy — domesticated primates follow certain rules just because they’re afraid of the consequences of not following them. Real peace is only possible if we understand the underlying value certain laws possess. And that means understanding the value of empathy — and you can only understand empathy if you possess Consciousness; I think, therefore I am; therefore, I can think about YOU.
Subsequently, with the realization that Christ is Consciousness comes the dictum that we follow our highest light — God within us. Our Imagination and theology are synonymous. To promote Consciousness you must Change how you think — stop accepting beliefs and start creating ideas – ideas that make you feel good about your little corner of the universe. I’m talking about creating ART-MYTH as personal spirituality. ART-MYTH is different from RELIGIOUS-BELIEF because we go into it knowing art-myth is meant to be a personal, subjective thing. At most it inspires others to create their own art-myth.
So to recap. . . Starting now — not only will the art we create be our primary mode of spirituality — but thanks to the creative-based economy, it will also ensure our financial independence.
This revelation is the basis of a spiritual awakening that disregards the animalistic instinct for social hierarchy and promotes autonomy — creating peace on earth — “As the individual become more collective, the collective becomes more individual.”
A truly effective government will eventually render itself obsolete.
This means morality comes from us — from our Consciousness and empathy.
