The lie of overpopulation
Consider the concept of overpopulation, where it is often said that with current resources, the planet cannot feed more people. This cannot be done with the current approach to life. With a mechanical, materialistic approach, it cannot be done. It cannot be done with force-based technology, it cannot be done with the present energy sources that are available. It cannot be done. That is why you see many people, even many aware people, who have begun to believe in one of the most insidious lies that the manipulators have ever put out on this planet, namely the belief that there are too many people in embodiment on earth and that we should do something to limit the size of the population.
It is absolutely necessary that the more aware people become completely clear in your minds that this is a lie produced by the manipulators. You need to work for the exposure of this lie so that more and more people can come to see it for what it is. There are so many people who are well-meaning, who are attuned to some new ideas and new ways of thinking. They have been sucked into the downward spiral of believing that the planet is already overpopulated and that active, drastic measures need to be taken in order to reduce the size of the population. It is absolutely necessary to shatter this matrix in the collective consciousness, to shatter it and to awaken people to the reality that the purpose of life on this planet is not that a few hundred million people live a comfortable life in an affluent state.
The absolute purpose of earth, the only justification for the existence of the earth, is that ten billion people are given an opportunity to be in embodiment on this planet. You have been programmed by the manipulators to believe that ten billion people simply could not be supported by the amount of resources on the planet. This is another lie! Number one: Ten billion people cannot be supported by the resources that are currently in use. Secondly: Ten billion people cannot be supported with the current unequal distribution of resources where a few hundred million are hoarding resources, at the cost of keeping many more millions of people below the poverty level.
Sustaining ten billion people
Can the planet sustain ten billion people? Yes, it can, but not in its present state. If you look at current conditions and project into the future how much of existing resources will be required to sustain ten billion people, then you are perfectly right that this cannot be done. But you are using the analytical mind to create a linear, cause-effect progression that says: “Only the current limited resources exist and only the current amount of resources that we are aware of is available to us.” You are creating an unrealistic linear projection. It is possible to raise society to an entirely higher level where all of these linear projections are completely circumvented. They are transcended because new things come into being.
Just go back 100 years, to the early 1900s. Look at what the population was at the time, look at the technology that was available at the time. Then imagine that a scientist had made the same calculations and had said: “How can the planet sustain six and a half billion people or seven billion people?” You would have seen that, again, the calculations would have shown it was impossible.
When you look at what technology has been invented in the last hundred years, how agricultural methods have been improved, then you can see that the planet can actually sustain six and a half, seven billion people. It does not sustain them in a sufficient degree of affluence, but that is partly because there has not been the equivalent of a sociological, political evolution to what you have seen at the technological level. You have actually seen the arriving of technology that has made it possible that people can survive, but you have not seen the development in society that has redistributed resources so that they can all survive in an acceptable degree of affluence.
It is possible to go even higher and bring forth new technology. The manifestation of the Age of Higher Awareness does not require a reduction of the size of the human population. The higher vision is calculated to be completely realistic and to sustain ten billion people in a golden age society. Not all of the ten billion people will be in the golden age consciousness and some will live in pockets that are at a lower level of development. But the majority of the people in the Age of Higher Awareness can be sustained in a very high degree of affluence.
Transcend Your Fears about earth’s Resources
There are many philosophies that talk about Mother Earth as a specific being, but this is not necessarily the most constructive way to look at it in your present state of consciousness. There are people who can consider Mother Earth as a separate being without feeling separated from her, but the problem in western culture is precisely the sense of separation.
What happens to many people is that they have the best of intentions and they get awakened to the problems that are burdening nature. Then, they react with fear and in their fear, they project mental images upon Mother Earth and upon nature. This will not actually help nature. What is burdening the earth is the energies and the matrices projected upon nature through the identity, mental and emotional bodies of human beings.
You who are the aware people, if you want to do something to heal Mother Earth, you need to first transcend your own fear. There are so many people who are beginning to awaken spiritually. You have the best of intentions. You often have much knowledge. But you have not made that final step of transcending the fear in your emotional bodies. Therefore, your positive intentions can so easily become colored by this and you are actually projecting out a man-made image upon Mother Nature. It is, perhaps, more positive than some of the man-made images that have caused the current imbalance and pollution but it is still a man-made image.
As one example, nature does not have a fixed amount of what you call natural resources. Nature does not have anything that is fixed. The planet is able to change almost instantly when the consciousness of enough human beings will change. That is why you need to be very careful not to lock your minds on a closed image, saying that there are only so many resources and there needs to be great fear, and something absolutely needs to be done now.
The resources of nature are almost unlimited—when you are willing to transcend a certain level of consciousness. There are so many resources that are just waiting to be used by human beings but they cannot be accessed by the current level of consciousness. That is why the more aware people need to be the forerunners for rising to the next level of consciousness where you can use technology that is not based on forcing nature or forcing each other. You do not do this if you are projecting your fears upon Mother Earth. It will only add to the fears that have already been projected for so many thousands of years.
There are, of course, many valid steps, there are many valid teachings. This is not criticizing anyone but if you want to do one thing that, more than anything, will have a positive effect on Mother Nature, look at your own fears and transcend them. Realize that if you know who you are as a non-material being, then you also know that you are connected to higher awareness. You will also know that higher awareness has the power to change any limitation on earth when it is given the authority by those in embodiment. That is what you do when you transcend the consciousness that has manifested the current conditions.
Back to nature versus back to higher awareness
Beings of higher awareness do not belong to the back-to-nature movement, but to the back-to-awareness movement! It is not a matter of thinking back to the “pristine” wilderness that existed when the first settlers came over here, idealizing it and thinking that America should somehow go back to this state, in which only a small number of people could survive here and only do so by being in a constant state of warring with each other over the scant natural resources.
It is the plan for the Age of Higher Awareness that America should transcend, and establish a modern society that has pristine conditions both in the areas inhabited by man and in the areas that are left to natural conditions. Certainly, there is no desire to see overcrowded and polluted cities with slums. Certainly, there is no desire to see the entire food chain polluted by chemicals. This is not the plan for this nation.
But what you see today in the pollution of nature springs from – starts in – the pollution of the heart of the people of this nation. It is hardness of heart, lack of sensitivity, lack of willingness to reach for the higher vision that there might be a better way to do things than the way that is convenient – or seems convenient – right now. Or the way that allows a small power elite to maintain their control over the majority of the wealth and resources in an entire nation.
What overturned the rigid feudal system of Europe was a growth in the population. What will overturn the current elitist system in the United States will be only – at least on the physical level – a growth in the population, that makes it necessary to redistribute – not wealth as the Communists say – but redistribute economic and psycho-spiritual opportunity. So that all men and women can be treated as they were created, namely to be equals and have equal opportunity to raise themselves above the conditions of their own past awareness. And therefore, they can experience the personal alchemy, which when it reaches critical mass will become a national alchemy and turn around a nation and raise it to an entirely new level, that is so much higher than what you have today that people today cannot even envision it.
The vision for this nation would put all of your science fiction literature to shame. All of the things that you see in science fiction literature and future studies are as nothing compared to the real vision that higher awareness holds for this nation and for the world. But for that vision to come into action, into physical manifestation, a critical mass of people must be willing to let go of the old, to let the old images – the old world view, the old expectations – die as Jesus demonstrated by being willing to die on the cross and give up the ghost.
