Our Place in the Universe
Some say we are living in the end time. They believe that all apocalyptic prophecies were talking about our generation. So we can do nothing about it. We are helpless observers of our inevitable fate. It has already been decided.
Others see themselves as active participants in a cosmic process where the future is still open. They say if we want a better world, we will have to create it. We sink or swim together. There is no such thing as personal salvation. They subscribe to the dynamic emergent evolutionary perspective. They can see the current chaos as a call of evolution for a higher non-dualistic transcendental consciousness that could emerge in our time and place. They will agree with the new physics and with Max Planck, a German physicist of the 20th c. who described consciousness as the divine matrix that holds the universe and the bridge between all things, and the mirror that shows us what we have created. This new physics tells us this network fills all space and we’re connected to all that is.
So, we can use that network for the common good. That would be conscious evolution. We could, for example, unite with a collective aspiration for a more balanced and integrated awareness of wisdom and love, reason and intuition, feminine and masculine. Such an intensive and focused aspiration could raise the psychic temperature of the earth. This elevated temperature could open a door that has been locked and we could take a meaningful step towards the distant goal of evolution – the emergence of the androgynous state of consciousness.
