The True Revolution of Our Time Is the Revolution of Consciousness

If we take a look at the events of our world, we will easily realize that we live in revolutionary times. The revolution of our days is, however, entirely different from any other revolutions in human history. This revolution is not launched in order to rearrange the domain of forms and shapes, so as to replace old and outdated forms and shapes with new, dynamic and vivid ones. This revolution is able to take humanity beyond forms and shapes. The revolution of our time is the revolution of the Consciousness.

Consciousness, which has been sound asleep under the spell of identification with the forms and shapes for thousands of years, is slowly waking up in our days. There is an increasingly powerful alarming impulse, and the number of people sensitive to the wake up call is getting bigger and bigger.

The effects of this impulse, waking us up from our dream of identification with the forms and shapes is felt by everybody, sometimes even several times a day. But many of us are unaware of what we actually experience; all we feel is that successes achievable in the world are less and less attractive for us. We recognize that behind earthly successes and failures there has to be something deeper, something more profound in our life.

We see it day by day that an increasing number of young people question the appropriateness of the goals offered by social and religious education. They shake off the hands trying to lead them along the right track, and as a consequence, they are exposed to the experience of emptiness and despair.

Society offers a ”solution” for the problem, in the form of the products of the entertainment and pharmaceutical industries and the manufacturers and service providers of excise goods and services. Today, these are prospering and extremely lucrative industries. They offer ”help” to young people in suppressing fear and in treating other superficial symptoms.

There is only one gateway leading out of this situation: and that is the present moment. We are only able to shift the center of gravity of our life from the peripheries to the center. What does it mean?

The edge is the present state of Consciousness, in which the overwhelming majority of people live. That is the state of identifying with the mind, that of the dormant Consciousness, which dreams and tells our personal history.

That is the state of perfect identification with thoughts, emotions and desires, where we seek the goals of our life only in the world of forms and shapes, whether they are crude material forms (the world experienced with our sensory organs) or fine material forms (thoughts, emotions). The motor of our existence on the edge is the ambition to become something or somebody and to be in control all the time.

    Conscious life ….
    Revolution of Consciousness ..
    We seem to awaken by this time 2015 years since we last went to sleep .. The monotonous life we live also has come to a standstill in our understanding of this fake life given to us .. Given as punishment for 2015 years .. The years went before 1 ad had their own miseries ..
    I know we have not yet really got to our understanding of what is and of what isn’t ..
    But we are swiftly doing a good enough progress ..
    Consciousness which has been sound asleep under the spell of identification with all the illusions put into us by our illustrious slave master at the top of the pyramid is now beginning to wear thin .. The spell is dissolving slowly .. The spell would be undone soon …
    I am of the understanding that the vibe from the sun’s rays that has been blocked from us for much too long are now very evident and the grip is loosening .. Loosening as we get the vibes from the sun .. It has been quite a rough ride 2015 years of tears .. Of misery .. The world has now known that we were not meant to be slaves on earth … The humanity now is beginning to know that we have a value .. We are not a commodity to be sold in wars to fight meaning less wars that enrich the top guy who sells guns and ammunition .. And waits by his cash register as we kill each other in these wars prepared by the top guy at the pyramid …The Munition industry would have to do without .. Because we are all within the fold that is engulfing planet earth .. The blue wave towing planet earth far away from the killing air polluted air that we breathe daily .. The poisoned water that we drink daily .. Already marine life has been poisoned .. All dead .. And still they ( marine creatures ) horrified as the toxic enters the water streams all over the world where they dump and dump … dump and the toxic substances dumped into the sea and rivers at nightfall by profit margin barons .. Are beginning to spread into dangerous outlets … All this killing just for what ..?? All for profit .. It Has now reached a boiling point .. The food we eat has preservatives .. Preservatives meaning poison .. We are awakening .. and we are aware now that all we call life we live .. is simply an illusion .. Staged by the pyramid man .. It has taken us this long gruelling hardship and misery years of suffering .. But we are resilient .. We are good and we are peaceful …
    I say we have a way forward .. The universe is with us …
    Thank you for allowing me this space to say a word or two .. Lastly I say we are fully awake … Eyes all washed clean .. No cobwebs …
    We have come to grips with our mental progress as it is now possible even to think that the top man at the top of the pyramid is real and all we see and live by has but been an illusion …. Created and staged for us to remain in the dark ….. But the time is nigh .. The tide has moved …. James Kayeja …

  7.' Charlie Ryder says:

    Always keep in mind; If you have never experienced this quantum leap through non-local interactions, it can be difficult to grow. However this life is nothing short of a condensing canopy of ethereal learning.

  8.' Jared Ó Súilleabháin says:

    Are you outta your crazy ass mind?….yes unfortunately this is total BS, We are far more disconnected from each other and far less consciously aware of our role on the ? than ever.
