Do You Believe People People Are Becoming More Conscious?

Post by David92506 » Sat Feb 23, 2019 5:50 am

I've read all of Eckhart Tolle's books and I've enjoyed them tremendously.
I also enjoy this forum - I learn so much!
I've read we are going through an awakening.

However, things seem to be getting worse.
1. People seem to be more triggered these days.
2. People seem to be shorter fused.
"Across most generations, genders, and demographics in the U.S., drug use has increased. Whether discussing heroin, prescription drugs, marijuana or synthetics, American drug abuse has reached alarming levels."
3. More and more people seem to only be interested in what they have to say and not so keen on what you have to say - unless they want something from you.
4. On Twitter, and other forums, if one says anything that isn't "Leftist" "mobs" form and they attack. They always yell out, "Racism! Sexism!" even though it had nothing to do with either of them.
5. More and more people are saying they have no problem yelling, or even hitting, someone who they believe say anything offensive or degrading.
6. In dating forums, people are saying that it is all right to lie and be deceitful but it's NOT all right to bring up those issues - because it's hurtful and rude.
7. And now more and more Americans are turning towards "Socialist-Democrats" which is the same thing as Communism.

If there is a consciousness awakening - I don't see it.
Do you?

Haha well said smiileyjen. It may be true that unconsciousness is increasing and that is good. The deeper the world suffers, the brighter the light of awakening becomes. When suffering arises it becomes fuel to drive one to dissolve the ego. So it is a great thing in the end, the world may blossom from the fertile soil of negativity.

We are currently in the middle of a Global paradigm shift.

Shifting from the current Post Modern, Transnational Socialist (Globalist) paradigm to a Traditional Nationalist paradigm some might call Post Secular. Ironically, this is a global awakening.

The powers that have benefited from the old Globalist paradigm are fighting to maintain their grip on power, which is being played out in the cultural turmoil we see at the moment in the world in general.

Paradigm shifts are always difficult, the old paradigm fights to retain relevancy as the new paradigm emerges. This fight though is completely futile but it does create a lot of havoc.

If you are interested, Dr Steve Turley does some awesome analysis of current events.

I definitely agree with your observations that people seem to be more triggered and short tempered. That has also been my experience of dealing with people. I like to think that the increasing unconsciousness will give way to the light of awareness eventually so hopefully it all has its place in the grander scheme.
