Self Authority

Scarcity consciousness is not human nature, it is the outcome of cultural inheritance of a people growing through evolutionary cycles which have been predominantly focussed on survival.

Abdication of Self-responsibility has been a powerful force across time administered by religion and work ethic, which since the collective trauma of two world wars (which gave rise to the current oil hegemony) has lost any relation to moral value. With the advent of a global pandemic, our individual survival is predicated by the only viable 'rule': "Don't act in a way that you could get it. And don't act in a way that you could give it." - Simplified: "Don't Get It. Don't Give it". We are at a threshold of evolution and change that bears reference to past processes that only facilitate appreciating how we got into such a mess now.

Pandemic is not new to humans, but the strategy of 'Lockdown', social distancing and self-isolation is. While our governments and so called leaders have established lockdown along with the inevitable economic catastrophe that comes with it, they also present us with the maxim of a 'New Normal'. Lockdown has presented us with a significant opportunity of reflection. Not only the self-reflection brought about by the cessation of daily pattern (for many, not all), but also reflecting on the perpetuation of cultural patterns and work ethic that previously were the bedrock of sustaining cultural normality. I have to reflect, personally, that one of the most shocking experiences of my personal journey was the day that the recognition dawned that 'new' means NEW. i.e. What will come will bear no relation to what is known. I feel that the pitfalls we all are prone to is born of attempting to accommodate change within the context of the current, once normal, where the current process of change is 'new' and the human opportunity of evolution is radically new.

The description of the world of our inheritance comes from religious claim to authority of spirit and scientific claim to authority of matter. So much of what human consciousness is attempting to assimilate is that spirit and matter are unified in human beings in a manner that empowers self authority in an individual. The individual self has culturally been subject to external authority in religion, science, education, rulership and so many other ways. In fact the description of correctness is pinned to being receivers of survival means. The leaden weight of the scarcity and survival fear exerts a toll of inertia against the willingness to fully assume the Self Authority required to command the choice for a better world. While the 'old normal' had us in slavery to debt and scarcity consciousness, significant resource have been made available in the immediacy of the necessity of lockdown. It is now that we are presented with this opportunity to reconsider the outcome of scarcity consciousness and debt based economy. Our determination to be accountable individually includes that we be prepared to rise above the self-abandonment we inflict upon ourselves by submitting our Individual Sovereignty to any external authorities.

That personal integrity is the world' scarcest commodity is not surprising as integrity is the first sacrifice when abandoning self and while we can blame, judge and condemn the unethical behaviour of external authorities, to do so only keeps us from any hope of reclaiming our own integrity.

People remain extremely vulnerable to emotive manipulation, because we remain largely within child motivation with need for approval (conforming to claim a sense of belonging), recognition (believing the same as others to find a sense of worth), security (accepting old normality - was debt really secure?) and acceptance (correct social attitudes within a spiritual/religious standard).

Authority was stolen from people at the point of the blade once we learned to smelt metals. Now we have mutually assured nuclear destruction and despotic abuse of science (including biological and chemical weaponry) by authorities that seek to maintain and enact domination. However, the very science that brought us to this is bound in the closed system laws of thermodynamics and the structures it has created are indeed entropic. The financial system of the elites has fallen apart and they know change is here. As we move forward to meet the inevitable 'new normal', will we fall foul of attempting to push back into the 'old normal' where we endured austerity for how long? Truth Amnesty worked in healing Apartheid and will likely be required in coming days as we will need to heal from the scars of lockdown. However, the greatest challenge we face is to embrace maturity in reclaiming individual authority for our choices through this evolutionary process. We are called upon to express individual maturity in maintaining the only valid rule of "Don' Get It. Don' Give it", where we are faced with the reality of preventing virus transfer.

Ancient Greek sciences embraced Infinity and Zero, fundamentals of new energy science. They also appreciated aesthetics. They maintained that wisdom was brought to human consciousness through energy transfer. This transfer of information energy was held to occur through musical harmonics and beautiful thought forms that resonated as part of the functioning of an Infinite universe. Would access to the energy of the void (new energy) not also be a process of energy transfer? As is the exchange between spirit and matter. It is this perceptual grasp that is the foundation of ethics and morality. It is fruitless to approach the unethical for ethical solution. Therefore the delivery of new energy and all other transformative solutions will emerge from those who, through their personal choice to enhance their reality, cultivate an intent for a better world and discover security of self on one planet in a Universe of billions of Galaxies that is clearly abundant in its manifestations. Scarcity is the antithesis of this reality.
