Freedom and the Splitting of Humanity
Seeking freedom and sovereignty only externally is futile as long as we have not learned to self-govern and self-rule.
And this is the hardest part of the work for the resistance of our lower nature, ego, unconsciousness/shadow with layers of suppressed wounds/traumas, programs, conditioning, attachments, and various occult forces acting upon us is strong…very strong…there are distractions and temptations everywhere.
The inner conquest is a battle indeed, much harder than the outer battle. Hence, many people avoid it and externalize everything, caught in endless victim/perpetrator/rescuer cycles, fighting shadows on the wall as they kill each other.
We must have faith and patience, for we are still little children in light of our evolutionary stage during this Time of Transition.
We cannot force the process, for the kingdom of heaven cannot be taken by storm. It can only be revealed by clearing and transmuting what is in the way of anchoring the Divine Light.
And this process does require conscious inner work with sincere aspiration. Sincerity with self is key and also the hardest to establish, no matter what image we try to portray externally or even to ourselves.
An intellectual understanding and pretense only result in spiritual bypassing and more lies to the self.
Be gentle with yourself, but don’t lie to yourself about what is necessary to truly awaken and live in the Divine as a fully spiritualized soul embodied Divine Being.
But before we can become spiritualized and bring forth the soul/true self, we need to become individuated and fully integrated internally [which is the purpose of shadow work]. This step cannot be skipped. Trying it only results in spiritual bypassing.
Most people are still in the consensus state of hive mind existence, identified with certain groups, cultures, society, religions, ideologies, political parties, and flags, where most of their desires, wants, and needs are also culturally/socially conditioned, or they are compensations due to [unconscious] trauma, insecurity, etc……like children in adult suits, trying to fill a bottomless hole.
Right now, during this phase of the “awakening” – which often implies a ‘shocking/rude’ awakening – millions of people are just starting their journey of individuation for the first time in their lifetimes.
They are just barely getting out of the consensus state of the masses and herd consciousness, which is already challenging as it means letting go of old beliefs, what they “thought” they wanted, and attachments to past associations, friends, and even family – and most importantly, who they “thought” they were.
It is a rebirth process. The old needs to die before the new can emerge.
Others fall deeper into the abyss of disintegration and won’t come out of this life. We saw it happening over the past three years, and it is now even more intensifying.
There is nothing wrong with this, for all there is are lessons in the bigger picture of the evolution of consciousness. Some need more lifetimes until the soul is ripe enough to embark on the process of individuation consciously.
It’s part and the reason for the “splitting of humanity” as prophesized by various esoteric traditions [not to be confused with the artificial Divide & Conquer agenda]. It requires the necessary phase of loneliness to establish healthy solitude and an orientation towards the inner life so we stop grasping externally.
Wherever you are on your journey and evolutionary trajectory, know that there is a bigger plan unfolding which you are part of; it’s a Divine plan, and no human will can override it.
The task is to align our little personal will with Divine Will, which is easier said than done due to the aforementioned [inner] resistance.
We still have a long road and adventure ahead of us and work to do. But it is the very reason we came here for and participate in.
The only way out is in and through.

However, as Sri Aurobindo noted:
“…But this is an error; it leaves the money power in the hands of the hostile forces. To reconquer it for the Divine to whom it belongs and use it divinely for the divine life is the supramental [divine] way.
We look upon money as a power of the Divine, and, as with everything else, we want to conquer it for the Divine in life. As the money-power today is in the hands of the hostile forces, naturally, we have to fight them.
Whenever they see that you are trying to oust them, they will try to thwart your efforts. You have to bring a higher power than these and put them down.”
