59 – Conscious Self-determination …

Somewhere in our evolutionary process, we became aware of two distinct yet complementary aspects of the phenomenon we call Mind:

  1. One is what we term “The Unconscious”: the inflexible, self-propelling, relatively pre-determined instinctive forces of Life (survival, adaptation, sustenance, bonding).
  2. The other is what we term “The Conscious”: the awareness of our capacity to self-reflect and have a degree of freedom in adaptation.

We move from one aspect to the other – from the Unconscious to the Conscious, and vice versa – responding mostly instinctively to internal and external influences (needs, urges, crises, demands). But like no other creature we know of, we are highly conscious of the power of self-determination.

Self-determination is one of the main instinctive drives in the evolution of Life. It incites survival and encourages movement toward Complexity through ingenuity in adaptation. But conscious self-determination, the highly evolved capacity to consciously reflect, analyze, resolve, demand, change, has taken us, as far as we know, to the forefront of conscious self-awareness on Earth.

But being conscious of how powerful this high level of self-determination is in us, terrifies those who control our Destiny, those who make decisions for us with their own interests in mind. It is thus the incredible reach of the Human mind is enslaved under the chains of unbounded consumerism and unbridgeable divisions. It is thus we are not allowed to know.

Yet we are, without doubt, clear proof of the power of Conscious Self-determination; this primordial, relentless, astonishing, urging Force that engulfs us with powerful, ancient, and animal drives we hardly imagine we had in us. The same Force that makes us conscious of our own Existence, conscious that we can create and seek Beauty, mandate Fairness, and mold with a degree of Freedom the primordial ground from which we sprout into Life, urging Life into greater levels of Self-awareness.

This is our Destiny: Like neurons in a child’s brain beginning to make connections to prepare the path for the upcoming wonder of the self-conscious mind, we are pioneers in Life’s most incredible adventure: The forging of the Self-conscious Universal Mind.
