Critical Thinking: Will The World Only Change If People Become Aware Of What Is Going On ‘Out There’?
In addition to what has been said about the contagion that has both directly and indirectly had a big effect on the world, there has been an increasing focus on what is going on ‘behind the scenes’. Videos have been made and articles have been written that go into things that the mainstream media would probably only mention in an alternate reality.
But, as this source doesn’t actually exist to inform people, it’s not as though this is much of a surprise. Nonetheless, that hasn’t stopped this source from accusing other sources of being ‘fake news’.
A Good Sign
Anyway, what more and more people are starting to become aware of are things that a small percentage of the population have been aware of for many years. In the past, the people that brought up these subjects were often seen as being a bit crazy and even unhinged.
Although some of these people are no doubt going to be pleased about what has taken place, they may lament the fact that it has taken so long for so many people to ‘wake up’. According to someone like this, the only way that the world will change could be if enough people become aware of what is going on.
Removing the Curtain
When someone has become aware of what is going on behind the scenes, they might no longer believe what the mainstream media sells or believe that the entertainment industry is merely there to ‘entertain them’, amongst other things. Quite simply, they will have been unaware of what was going on and now they will be aware.
They will have started to unplug from the propaganda that is being spewed out twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Said another way, they will have started to take their power back.
While there are more and more people that are ‘waking up’ there are still going to be a lot of people that are ‘asleep’. For whatever reason, these are going to be people that are still ‘plugged in’.
If someone is ‘awake’, they can do what they can to try to ‘wake up’ the people who are like this. At times this may work, whilst at other times they may just experience resistance and end up feeling frustrated as a result.
When one sees themselves as someone who is ‘awake’, it can be as though the people behind the scenes are the perpetrators and their fellow human beings are victims. Ergo, once these perpetrators have been dealt with, they, along with their fellow human beings, will no longer be taken advantage of.
Awareness of what is going on ‘out there’ is then going to be essential; without this, these people will be able to carry on as usual. This is why the more people that are aware of what is going on, the better it will be.
The previous outlook will come from the view that human beings are just observers of reality and are playing very little part in what takes place. Therefore, what is going on ‘out there’ will have to be dealt with before the world will change.
What if it is not this black and white, though? What if what is taking place in the world is merely a reflection of what is taking place in the collective unconscious?
If this is the case, and the dysfunction that exists ‘out there’ is a reflection of what is taking place in the collective unconscious, focusing on what is going on ‘out there’ is unlikely to solve anything. This approach would be similar to what would happen if someone tried to remove the dirt from their glasses by cleaning the window that is in front of them.
Along with the fact that this won’t work, by touching the window in front of them, they would add even more dirt to a window that is already dirty. Furthermore, by trying to change what is going on ‘out there’, they will be coming from a place of resistance.
A Closer Look
When it comes to the collective unconscious, it could be said that this is an energy field that can’t be experienced by the five senses. This field will be partly made up of the inner content that has been pushed into each person’s unconscious mind.
What this then means is that what is pushed out of someone’s conscious mind doesn’t simply disappear and that human beings are not separate, even though their ego-mind creates the impression that they are. The ego-mind is the part of someone that allows them to have their own experience on this earth; it is neither good nor bad.
The Direct Approach
Taking all this into consideration, if what is going on out there is a reflection of what is taking place in the collective unconscious; surely the best way to change the world would be for people to deal with their own inner baggage? When someone takes this route, their own unconscious will start to change and, as this happens, they will have an effect on the collective unconscious.
They will be directing their energy into creating something new; not channelling their energy into trying to change what doesn’t work. This will take away their resistance, and, as what is resisted is what will persist, this will benefit them and their fellow human beings.
The Easy Option
If someone takes this approach they will have to get in touch with the pain that is inside them, which will be hard. On the other hand, if someone tries to change what is going on ‘out there’ they will be able to avoid their own pain and they can get an energy boost through trying to ‘change the world’.
Through seeing themselves as someone who is ‘awake’ and others as people that need to be ‘woken up’, their ego can become inflated too. Thanks to what their reality is mirroring back to them, it will be up to them to change the world.
At this point in time, the collective unconscious is carrying a lot of rubbish. The traumas that people have experience in this life as well as what has been passed down from their ancestors have taken their toll.
As more and more people deal with their own baggage and raise their own consciousness, the external world will gradually change. The reason for this is that in order for the world to be the way that it is, a certain level of consciousness needs to exist.
