I would like to offer a further observation that has to do why all this murder and mayhem has been happening with accelerated frequency as has the apparent global increase in destructive weather phenomena.
This shift that I believe has already begun will not suddenly take place overnight. This shift that is happening will continue worldwide for perhaps a decade or more, although less noticeably in some countries, because of their current, social and political climate, Evidence of this shift has been openly reported in countries like the United States and other parts of the world, because our political and social systems are ultimately free to engage ourselves openly in this conversation, even with those of us who still vehemently seem to be working against it.
To get to the main point of this conversation, which was triggered by the recent tragedy in Connecticut and which I have already addressed in a previous post. there has been a very noticeable increase in the frequency of mass mayhem and murder around the world and only in countries where we are ultimately free to openly engage in this conversation has it been relatively openly reported in the press. The same may be true, and I say MAY, that the alarming increase in changing weather patterns which some are attributing to global warning as others believe that Gaia is warning us that we need to take care of this planet before it becomes too late to save it and still others, who still cling to old religious beliefs and myths, believe that the end of the world and the final judgement is close at hand. It may be interesting to note here, regarding the second coming, that even in the New Testament of the Bible, the Apostle Paul did admonish many of the new Christians who had sold everything they had, put on sackclothes and sat on their roofs to wait for the return of Christ.
While this postulation is by no means ultimately the correct one, it seems to bring up why this increase in violence of a type unheard of in the past, or at least not reported and recorded can be applied to what we have been observing of late which is attributed to many different causes already mentioned.
I believe that the shadow in the collective unconscious, which many respected observers of myths, like psychologist Carl Gustav Jung and mythologist Joseph Campbell, have been observing and telling us about for quite a while now is the primary cause for this accelerated increase in mass violence of late. There has been a new area of study in the psychological sciences, now called depth psychology, that has been growing into the mainstream as a legitimate phenomena that takes place in the human psyche. This study, at it’s core, continues to both postulate the notion of a collective unconscious and that those parts of ourselves that we deny exist in ourselves and are often not conscious about, called shadow, is a probable notion of what may be running the show in our psyche and which I believe, is the cause of this global phenomena being observed worldwide.
As I have said before and reiterate now, I believe that as this shift gets closer and closer to critical mass, which I believe has been happening for many decades of the recent past, there will also be a counter shift that will appear to be gaining momentum but will eventually collapse because this change is inevitable. Those that oppose this shift, as well as those that are working toward it, already know this unconsciously but it still remains collectively in the unconscious as shadow. It is all a part of this unacknowledged shadow which may also explain why we are at least co-creating an increasing amount and frequency of strange and destructive weather phenomena at this time.
This shadow has been showing up all over the place and for a while, from the Jonestown mass suicide to 9-11-2001 and now to the increasing phenomena of mass murder and mayhem. Many have blamed individuals of religious extremism, like Jim Jones and Osama Bin Laden and now are blaming these monsters who cause so much violence to innocent children and adults andbecause of the weak regulation currently in place to provide easy access to weapons such as assault rifles and automatic weapons that can cause great harm to many innocent victims in a very short space of time, measured in minutes, instead of hours or days.
While I and anyone who has a conscience that is not psychologically considered impaired by factors that are not clearly understood, can’t help but share in the grief and anger that results from these events, yet as a person of conscience, we have an ability and duty to deal with this grief and anger in appropriate ways, rather than simply acting out our feelings in unexpected was as the perpetrator of violence have been doing with increased frequency, which is precisely the point of all this and ultimately it will take all of us, as a species, to be able to save ourselves from our own human weakness.
As more and more of us are beginning to recognize that we have this shadow , the momentum will bring us to the critical mass that will allow all of us to finally get that we are all one being and as individuals are only one unique view of the many unique points of view of the one which some may call call God. This link to one another and its effects in the world at large is often called The Hundredth Monkey Effect as described in the book, The Hundredth Monkey by Ken Keyes Jr.
To me, and for many others December 21-22, 2012 is a celebration for those of us who believe this global change is happening now or is a done deal already, which is why we are want to note its passage. The date was chosen because it seems to coincide with many astrological phenomena, to the end of the approximate 26,000 year cycle (actually approximately 25,800 years) that astronomers call precession and that the Mayan Civilization predicted would happen on 12-21-2012 and to the many other observable phenomena as I have described, but these are not the real cause but only the result of these coincidences. I believe we will have to finally come to realize that we are the cause and we must take full responsibility for not only what we have chosen to manifest in our lives, unconsciously or consciously, that we are all connected to one another and to our source, which some may call God or Goddess, as I now do, and that we are all in this together as one.
