A New Age Could be Born…
In the history of mankind there have been many Avatars who have returned to help and uplift the consciousness of humanity. Several great human beings who have achieved success in their individual capacity in various walks of life have been instrumental in paving the way for positive change. However the time has now come for large groups to work in unison with each other and hasten the evolution of mankind.
The age of the group Avatar has arrived! As our planet evolves and moves into a higher energetic vibration, human beings will also simultaneously evolve. The challenge for each one of us is to be able to harness this energy and use it productively, and what better way, than to learn to work in harmony and cooperation with each other. It is the age of the power of One in the many!
In the “A Treatise on White Magic” by Alice Bailey, it is written, “in the fullness of time, and through the work of evolution there is emerging a group who perhaps will bring salvation to the world, and who – embodying the group ideas and demonstrating the group nature, manifesting in a small way the true significance of the body of Christ, and giving to the world a picture of the true nature of a spiritual organisation – will so stimulate and energize the thoughts and souls of men that the new age will be ushered in by an outpouring of love, knowledge and harmony of God Himself.”
To comprehend group consciousness, let us understand the concept of critical mass. Apart from the individual consciousness that humans have, there is also a collective consciousness. This can be looked at as a sort of invisible field that surrounds the planet, in which all gathered knowledge is available. We humans, with our individual consciousness are also in contact with this collective consciousness.
Our knowledge is part of this ‘field’ and all our thoughts and intentions are also incorporated in it. When an individual has a new idea, then from that moment on it becomes part of the collective consciousness, and it gets easier for others to have the same idea. There is a general consensus that when enough number of people have a change in consciousness about a certain concept, the entire population will unconsciously gain the same knowledge.
In sociology, a tipping point is a point in time when a group, or a large number of group members, rapidly and dramatically changes their behavior by widely adopting a previously rare practice. The hundredth monkey effect is a studied phenomenon in which a new behavior or idea is claimed to spread rapidly by unexplained means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behavior or acknowledge the new idea.
The story of the hundredth monkey effect was published in Lyall Watson’s foreword to Lawrence Blair’s Rhythms of Vision in 1975. Some scientists conducted a study of macaque monkeys on the Japanese island of Koshima in 1952. They observed that some of these monkeys learned to pick up sweet potatoes and wash them in a stream, and gradually this new behavior spread through the younger generation of monkeys, through observation and repetition. The researchers observed that once a critical number of monkeys was reached, e.g., the hundredth monkey, this previously learned behavior instantly spread across the water to monkeys on nearby islands even though these monkey colonies were not in contact with each other.
When the collective consciousness of mankind has been impregnated with thoughts of oneness and cooperation, this will stimulate an automatic change in the consciousness of individuals all over the world (regardless of their emotional and mental state) and this will trigger a large movement towards a change in the minds and hearts of all.
The time has come for group consciousness to be the way of life. Helping, caring, sharing, working together while understanding individual differences and each ones strengths and weaknesses to achieve larger goals, is the new age yoga. One very powerful method of increasing group consciousness is by meditating together in large numbers. Many Pranic Healers in India are now realising the need to arrange events for large groups to do Meditation on Twin Hearts and bless the planet with love, peace and hope. Apart from anchoring large amounts of divine energy into the planet there are several added benefits to collective meditation.
It is said that when large groups of people gather together to meditate the Higher Beings are forced to appear. The Divine energy descending is magnified as they pour their blessings through us, it is like being under a waterfall of energy that will deeply cleanse and heal all aspects of our life. Collectively anchoring large amounts of Divine energy also serves to heal the area where the meditation is performed, radiating a change outward into the planet’s aura or energy body. Meditating in large groups is aimed at bringing about a global change in the understanding that we are all one and that collectively we can manifest the Divine plan on Earth.
It is very important for us to realize that consistently practicing right thoughts, words and deeds will cause a permanent change that will radiate into the hearts and minds of all mankind through the concept of collective consciousness. The new humanity will usher in a new age of peace, love, joy and happiness as group consciousness and collective work will become the order of the day. As more souls begin to work together for a larger purpose with patience, tolerance and understanding, and learn to harmonize conflicting factors and individual differences, the concept of oneness will be strengthened and the evolution of all souls will be hastened.
If humanity would accept and acknowledge this responsibility and become creatively engaged in the process of evolution, a new reality would emerge, and a new age could be born.
