In this journal entry, I am using “S.T.A.R.T” as an applied acronym for Science, Technology And Rational Thought. When we take a small step back, we widen our perspective to bring clarity and insight to how we can move forward. We’ve come a long way to be here. Now we must make a turn if we are to fulfil the vision and desire of those who stand behind us – the ones who gave us the life we live today.
S.T.A.R.T has got us to this point, but now we stand on a precipice, a point of choice within ourselves that can realise in the grander scheme of things, humanity’s most beautiful dream of a “great peace”.
S.T.A.R.T has undoubtedly created some wonderful life advancements, particularly in the material sense. Many of us today live in relative comfort and ease, with global communications a daily reality, and instant access to myriad information at our fingertips. When compared with life on Earth only 50 years ago, we are for all intents and purposes, living in a different world.
But despite the distance we have travelled since our earliest ancestors, there are things we need to tend in our hearts and minds. There are things that we have forgotten on our road to S.T.A.R.T.
S.T.A.R.T – in the beginning . . .
What was it that drove humanity toward science and technology in the first place? Was it our naturally inquisitive nature? Was it a burning desire to find solutions to making life easier? Yes and Yes! Before Science and technology, maintaining the essentials of life was endlessly demanding at a physical level, AND extremely time-consuming. At the end of the day, we had very little time to sit and ponder the universe . . .
But when we did make time, sitting on a rock “looking outward and feeling inward” became a transcendental experience – and we wanted more of that, we wanted to live there.
Stepping back, the human animal was a pack-creature and by virtue of group consciousness, would generally follow a consensual thought-train – especially when it came to matters of survival. Deciding in a change of direction was never a conscious discussion, but rather a “feeling for change” that would have stirred within – until it grew throughout the community . . .
The motivation that set us on the path of science and technology commenced the moment we asked ourselves the big question of life . . .
“Hardship or transcendence”?
The questioning was much deeper than what lay on the surface. It was the very fundamental premise of life that was being challenged. At the point where the impetus for change outweighed the need for uniformity, began a willingness to risk all for the sake of a better existence. And so began a mass exodus forward, albeit within the mind at first, it soon expanded into action. Some took big steps others tiptoed slowly . . .
Over a number of generations as the change accelerated, children began arriving on the planet with specific gifts and with a passion to achieve liberation. It was “universal synchronicity” in action, and it was based on the collective desire of humanity to evolve and transcend.
And so here we are, thousands of years into the future, living in relative ease and luxury – with time on our hands to ponder the universe – we are transcending. Our arrival here is the result of our collective desire – a vision embedded into human consciousness all that time ago and carried forward by each and every life that has been lived.
Now, there is a new step to be taken – a mid-course correction. It would seem as radical as turning the steering wheel while on a straight stretch of road. But in reality, we will find that the wheel turns the road as well.
We have achieved much in the material sense – thanks to the development of our Rational Thought mentality. But for all that, there has been an injurious consequence to the heart of humanity, inflicted as a result of our avarice nature and short sightedness. Fortunately though, we are growing up.
I would suggest we have come to a similar point to where we were thousands of years ago when we parted hardship for a better life. Despite our good intentions, human hardship still remains today. Science and Technology has done little to reduce it and much to compound it. On the positive side, (and there always is one) we are waking to a new realisation – and here it begins . . .
“Subjective versus objective perception”
One of the inherent problems we have had with S.T.A.R.T is that it creates a subject versus object reality under the essential mechanism of isolated and separate parts. Typically, this is the mantra of the material world we find ourselves in. There is a negative spin-off from this perception that supports the idea of victim-mentality, a lack of accountability, and a resulting mental/emotional state of low self worth. All of these things are “hardships” to human potential, just as we had thousands of years ago. Like then, there is now a growing awareness to overcome them by moving into the future in a positive way. A future that would balance the dominance of the rational mind with the deeper-intelligence of human intuition is created in the holistic universe . . .
We are within what we see without – we are all involved in the creation of everything we see around us.
Add to this, there are choices to be made if we are to overcome the corruption and elitism of the modern world. What once began as a “questioning of life” has now become a closed discussion. Truly creative innovation is being limited to the filtering of the rational mind. Creative ideas are ignored on the basis of scientific ignorance.
The nature of community is that there will always be those who will promote a new idea and those who will want to keep things as they are.
“The innovator and the preservator” (new word)
There is a balance to be maintained but that balance is dynamic. This creates a time for the innovator and a time for the preserver . . .
When hardship increases, the preserver of life is weakened and the innovator is strengthened. When life is easy, the preserver is strengthened and the innovator weakened. “Weakness and strength” relate to the opportunities available to promote either innovation or preservation.
One of the compounding issues of S.T.A.R.T is that it has created an inbuilt security to deflect any innovation that would threaten the preservation of its rational mechanism. This might seem “fair enough” to the obsessive rational, but it is by definition a form of corruption, discrimination and a betrayal of the essential process that originally led us to this point. To put it more succinctly, innovations that don’t have a mathematical basis are swiftly rejected. Innovations that are scientifically based – are openly invited.
Our human intelligence has two essential aspects. There is “rational intelligence” which is based on scientific doctrine and there is “intuitive intelligence” which is an instinctual precept. Both are essential to human potential and the balance between the two is important. Currently, rational intelligence is the dominating law, but only because intuitive-intelligence cannot be fully understood in a rational way.
The challenge for the rational mind is no different to the one we faced thousands of years ago when we stepped into the unknown to pursue science and technology. Back then; the creative innovator, who saw transcendence, was able to put the case for moving forward as less of a risk than staying put. Today it is no different. The next step we take toward our human potential lies in our ability to take a similar risk.
For many reasons, S.T.A.R.T must accommodate intuitive-intelligence as an essential and equal part of human completeness. The reasons for this, point squarely to the current hardships we see in human society – namely, poverty, violence, crime, corruption, discrimination, stress and disease.
As we develop and embrace our intuitive intelligence, we will see the end of all these hardships and humanity will become rich and abundant.
The “baby-boom” era was full of individuals who have helped to change and restructure human society for the better – because that was the request of the collective consciousness prior to that era. The wave of that change continues today, and our challenge as rational thinking beings, is to take a risk and uphold those who bring innovation through creative intuitive pathways.
Artists and intuitive healers represent the creative side of human intelligence. They are precious, and their goals fulfilled will elevate human society to new and amazing levels. The society we become will be unrecognisable to this, and we will be everything we set out to be thousands of years ago.
Albert Einstein is recognised for his contribution to the sciences. But he was much more than just a scientist. He was an intuitive creative, and he was a musician. He saw great beauty in life. His discoveries were created from the top down in that he knew intuitively what the answers would be. It was through his rational mind that he was able to plot the scientific pathway to that answer, so we could all understand.
S.T.A.R.T is within you. It is an essential part of living in the perception of an individual human being. But what intuitive intelligence brings is the holistic reality of all humans sharing one mind and one family.
The change to come begins within each person taking the time to go within – just as we did eons ago when we took a moment to sit on a rock and experience our transcendence. Today, we can sit in the stillness of meditation and see the homestretch of our journey to peace – and as we do, it will be so.
Peace is here now – see it, feel it within.
With much love to all . . .
