What is your cosmology, dear Reader? What are the stories you tell yourself to make sense of the world? Do you subscribe to a personal God, an omnipotent creator? Or do you subscribe to the notion that life is an accidental electrochemical reaction and that consciousness is simply a biochemical accident that attaches to that other accident? I suspect because you are here, that yours is a more nuanced view, but I think that a predominant cosmology amongst peoples of the WEIRD nations (western, educated, industrial, rich, democratic), and who since around the sixteenth century have drifted inexorably away from the source of all things, becoming too sophisticated to believe in God, is just that. In the new religions of science and economics, the general conclusion that the public took from Darwin and Adam Smith were that life is a random accident subject to genes and environment and that people are motivated primarily by self interest and the maximization of profit.
There are many other cosmologies but, to my mind, a promising development which seems to be a blending of thought from Taoist and Vedic sources, from the esoteric branches of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, and from those of indigenous peoples of the world, is that divine Spirit gives rise to energy and energy gives rise to matter and to life itself. Spirit drives life. In this view, we can easily conclude that, since our individual consciousness is an expression of the divine, our nature is therefore innately good and perfect. So how do we find ourselves in the pickle that our pundits routinely remind us about? Climate change, health crises, not only regarding pandemics but rampant mental and physical degenerative disease, poverty, starvation and war. If I may offer a story of my own.
For ninety-five percent of our history, from the emergence of our species about 200,000 years ago or longer, until about 10,000 years ago, we lived long and healthy lives in communities that had zero-carbon footprint, were egalitarian, had minimal or no warfare, no exploitation, poverty or mental illness. Then, from the density of human consciousness, ego arose. This is by no means to malign ego, it was a necessary step in our evolution, because now we have garbage pick up, rail and air schedules, social media, Roombas and, most importantly, the capability to reach for the stars. But, the price was steep: we lost a balanced narrative and surrendered our sovereignty. In learning to manage the surplus wealth made possible by agriculture, Inanna, Astarte, Ishtar, Isis – the manifestations of the Goddess – withdrew to the inner planet, making way for kings and priests, almost invariably male, who, when the time was right, transformed themselves into bankers and media barons who continued to manage the surplus of wealth and convince us, through narrative, that this was all in everyone’s best interest and most recently that “we’re all in this together.” Society transformed from free and egalitarian to restrictive and autocratic while we and our planet are subject to all of the ills from which our ancient ancestors were blissfully free.
This is where I yield to Natha Jay who is able to see down these timelines and who offers hope in a vision of a future – as do many many old souls who are helping to illuminate and elevate our species – and launch us towards what I believe is our birthright, a heart-based, interstellar, post-scarcity civilization. In this book, you will find a wealth of information about the practical aspects of 5D, Ascension, Heaven on Earth, or, as I like to think of it, the next step in the evolution of consciousness. We are being asked to deliberately take part in becoming as divine beings, creators of our own lives, to live in happiness, gratitude, love and abundance. We are being asked to let go of the behaviors that have made our species so furiously successful and we are being asked to trust in the future, to step into new timelines because when we do that, as related by Ken Carey in Return of the Bird Tribes:
When humankind is healed, and [Spirit] is able to work freely … there is no ecological damage that will not, even before a few centuries, be entirely undone. It is easier to flush toxins from the earth’s river valleys than to remove the toxic ideas that cause them from human minds. In order of healing, it is human consciousness than first must change.”
Thank you, Natha Jay.
