122 – On the Universal Mind …

We have come to a point in our evolution where we are born into Life with a highly advanced neuronal connectivity that, to a degree, makes us capable of conceptualizing our Universe: How it works, how it has progressed with immense creativity through eons of time into a complex, organized and constantly changing system.

The Human animal is very inquisitive. Already in early civilizations, we were coming up with primitive concepts to explain our perception of a higher Order … the daily reappearance of the sun, the faces of the moon, the cycles of life and death, the returning constellations, the changing seasons … but unfortunately, in trying to fathom that Order, the crippling dogmatism of organized religions came into power to curb our inquisitiveness, castigating and eliminating those who defied them. And even so, in the midst of the horrors of indoctrination and greed for power and control that continue to dominate us to this day, there always shone the light of individuals who possessed not only the farsightedness of the universal mind … Socrates, Galileo … but also the courage to break free from the claws of dogma; a universal mind that realizes how intimate is our connection with the living Being we call our Universe, and how, amid the creation and annihilation of environmental forces, brings together all existing things under a common process that urges us to grow and thrive and bond and self-generate and survive.

And so, dominated by indoctrination and greed, instead of developing our ability to conceptualize our connection with the Universe that gives us Life, it is curbed. No curriculum, especially in Western educational systems, offers a methodical exploration of this, our magnificent ability. But we do possess it, and although dormant and subjugated we can liberate it on our own by beginning to look at things we innately do which reflect our Universe’s: Like generating our own components, self-organizing our own growth, adapting with immense creativity and a relative degree of choice to changing environments.

Long ago the universal mind of a philosopher* understood that “everything is involved in some kind of process which is common to all existing things”, and so he came to the realization that, by understanding the process in ourselves, we can begin to understand the Universe that originates it. Know Thyself.

As we imprint every cell in our bodies … DNA … with the urge to grow, thrive, bond, self-generate and survive, so our Universe imprints us … each and all of us … with the urge to grow, thrive, bond, self-generate and survive. As we are born with the innate ability to learn languages, so we are born with a universal mind that is innately capable of conceptualizing our intimate connection with our Universe.

A universal mind and being alive are our most beautiful possessions. Knowing this will change future generations as we, as an evolving species, delve into our destiny.
