The Australian people, most of them, are burdened by this specific energy. Sort of a blending of regrets or a sense of lost opportunity, or a sense that things are not the way they could or should be. This is something that makes people more serious than they need to be, that makes them feel not necessarily inferior but gives them a certain sense of hopelessness, almost fatalism. It is as if they do not truly believe that things could be changed, that conditions could improve, that certain problems could be solved.
Freedom exists only in the now
Let us again consider the topic of superiority and inferiority. You go into this consciousness of defining a goal that is the superior state that must be attained. What is it that happens to you? Well, if you are in the consciousness where you feel superior to other people, then you have a sense that since the earth is not yet where it should be according to your epic vision, you are focused on the future, on what has not yet happened but what should happen, what must happen, what you must help to bring about by all means possible. You are trapped in the future. You are imprisoned by the future that has not yet come about, so your prison is the future.
Now look at those who feel they are inferior, that they are victims, that they cannot be free, they cannot change their destiny. They often look to the past for what happened that enslaved them, what injustice was perpetrated upon them in the past, be it by the elite that is ruling them, be it by other people or be it by an angry God in the sky. These people are trapped in the past, imprisoned in the past.
You may think that the key to freedom is to let go of the past and move into some state in the future. But as long as you see a distance between where you are now and where you should be in order to be free, then you cannot be free. You cannot be free in the distance, in the space, in the separation. You can be free only in the now, in the singularity, in the present moment, in the interval between past and future.
There are many people who will think that they live in the present, but they do not because they are seeing the present through the filter of one of these dualistic dramas, either created in the past or in their vision of the future that should come. This is what gives rise to the sense of regrets, of lost opportunity. When you look to the future, you are regretting that the future goal has not yet manifested. When you look to the past, you are regretting what happened or did not happen in the past. Either way you are trapped, you cannot be free you cannot rise beyond your vision.
Confusing cause and effect
What is the key to this? To some degree, it is understanding, where you rise in awareness to overcome the various illusions so that you pass through a veil that obscures your vision and therefore imprisons you. What imprisons you is not a condition outside yourself but a vision, a mental image you hold in your mind. The prison is in the mind, it is not in the outer conditions. Yet look at what has happened to the vast majority of people on earth.
They believe it is the outer conditions that take away their freedom and thus they think the key to freedom is to change certain outer conditions. But this is one of the most subtle aspects of the duality consciousness. When you step into duality, you begin to assign reality to the dualistic extremes. You begin to assign reality to the god in the sky that represents good and to the devil in hell that represents evil.
You believe that certain conditions on earth were created by God and therefore it must be God’s will and therefore you cannot change it, and other conditions on earth were created by the devil and he has the power that you cannot override either. And thus, you cannot change it. What happens when you are in the duality consciousness is of course that you now reverse cause and effect. You think material conditions are the cause of your state of consciousness whereas the reality is that your state of consciousness is the cause of material conditions. You now get focused on changing the material conditions as the only means you can see to changing your state of mind.
Motivated by unresolved psychology
Some of the most closed-minded beings you will ever meet are the manipulators in embodiment. They are so trapped in their spiritual pride that they believe it is their sacred duty to get the entire world to conform to their vision, their epic vision of this ultimate outcome that will bring God’s kingdom to earth or will bring all people to heaven, however they define it.
It is simply a complete illusion that human beings are driven by this altruistic goal. Human beings who are trapped in duality may delude themselves into thinking they are working for a greater cause. But the deeper reality is that when you are trapped in duality, everything you do is motivated by your own unresolved psychology, your own state of consciousness. You are not seeking to change the world according to some divine vision. You are seeking to change the world in order to change your own state of mind because you are not willing to take responsibility for yourself.
What does it mean that you take responsibility for yourself? You accept that your state of mind is your responsibility, which means you do have the power to take command over your state of mind regardless of the material conditions you face. This is what the manipulators will not accept. That is why, in their pride and their spiritual blindness, they are literally seeking to change the entire world and enslave all of the human beings on this planet in order to change their own state of mind, and attain a state of mind where they can finally feel that they have attained this ultimate state of superiority, which proved that they were right and God was wrong.
This is their goal. They may camouflage it by defining these supposedly noble causes and trying to suck all people into working for those causes. But the deeper reality is that they are driven by completely selfish mechanisms in their own unrecognized psychology. When you begin to realize this, you can, of course, begin to ask yourself whether you want to continue to serve one of these causes defined by the manipulators or whether you will make a sincere effort to transcend the level of duality so that you can attain true freedom.
Higher awareness needs you
Higher awareness is determined that the next two thousand years will be a golden age. For this to happen, it must happen through people in embodiment using their free will to manifest the Age of Higher Awareness, to become the open doors.
You need to free yourself from fighting the causes defined by the duality consciousness, but this does not mean that you become pacifists who are sitting in your little rooms giving spiritual exercises or studying spiritual teachings. Millions of people need to engage themselves in society in various ways. Higher awareness is not telling you to be inactive, but to not engage in society without engaging in the dualistic struggle. It is only by providing people a frame of reference that there is something beyond the dualistic struggle that you will actually advance the manifestation of the Age of Higher Awareness.
Why do we not have a golden age on earth? Because for so long people have been trapped in the duality consciousness. We will not manifest the Age of Higher Awareness by winning the ultimate dualistic struggle where good triumphs over evil by destroying evil. This simply is not possible, for one dualistic polarity cannot destroy its opposite. Both of them would cease to exist at the same time. But that which is born of duality cannot destroy something else born of duality. Only light of a higher vibration can transform the dualistic energies into a higher form of energy. Higher awareness looks for millions of people to become the open doors not only for the insights and the wisdom but also for the light, the light of freedom.
