My cup of cocoa tea – a beloved St. Lucian breakfast beverage – had the words ‘world centric’ on it. Several thoughts exploded with just those two words.
On the one hand, I recognize a growing interconnection with our world, and our heightened sense of responsibility and engagement toward the collective good. On the other hand, I thought about the division and divisiveness that makes up so much of our national and world cultures. One group is pitted against another, both within a country and with its neighbors.
Each of us has a relationship with the world in which we live, and all that she holds within her sphere. Many depend on the media, which forms the basis of their understanding of how the world turns, what roles are played and by whom. Others travel as tourists or businesspeople, and of those, only some are open to whatever education they can gain from first-hand experiences and observations.
But today, we are becoming increasingly aware that we are not ‘It’ in the universe – that there is so much more — way beyond what we were taught in schools. If we can’t get our world centric selves together, how will we cope with intergalactic communication and engagement? For questions like these, I have found the scientific work and research of Dr. Stephen Greer, Billy Carson, Gregg Braden, and others to be eye opening.
Although the lessons we need to learn right here are far from finished, they may be elementary compared to learning how to navigate higher levels of consciousness and other dimensions.
So, what’s the point here? Simply that to grow, expand and adapt to the changes that are always unfolding, we will first need to be laser-focused on self-management, and interacting compassionately and peaceably with each other. We have much ground to cover. Ultimately, in the not-too-distant future, we will learn to fully transform ourselves beyond what we have believed was even possible.
