I have come to realize that it is in a way just rubbish talk. Of course it is not intended to be rubbish.
In my experience it is a scheme whereby power and control over others can be gained using circular thinking.
People actually get something worthwhile when they awaken to that fact and gain freedom.
From time to time people can be found who acquire certain communication or reading skills, vibrationally speaking and sometimes others develop powerful memory abilities but my take on this is now that these are aberrations, accidents within nature much the same as concussions or brain damage of some kind. This is not something to be looked for any more than any other disease.
Because it is a disease and not natural the persons with these aberrations will also demonstrate other negative or harmful issues. The system is simply out of balance.
Thank you for your question as I have had this on my mind a fair bit lately and this is a way for me to air it out.
The ages of astrology delineate the evolution of spiritual consciousness.
DAMN RUBBISH !
Evolution itself is rubbish - the earth was always there and the the lives. Human has no responsibility or duty in its transformation and he can not control it backward or front-ward. It is not a human made machine, but either a natural or beyond that (an imagination of the God - the creator). Human and other lives were born on the earth and eat the whole crust and inner part (like the sphere shaped sweet given to children). During the course many generations appeared and disappeared about whom we have only some words or letters (names or photographs that would never return). Even there is not a single person who can control his physical body or mind which is also equally natural like the so-called transformation. No one can live for more than 100 or 150 years with the same body. (Though many can boast). The very actions of the great people and great nations can do is contribution to the transformation by spending money and transforming the resources to meet the need.
The natural transformation is a re-cycling, refreshing and restoring the used resources - (food). where just one sleep cleanse our nerves and help us to forget our yesterdays. During our sleep, our feeling about "myself" is lost and equal to dead. There everything is finished. AND WHAT WE ARE DOING FOR THE COMING GENERATION IS some unknown ideas or imagination to quench our thirst for knowledge or to satisfy the thirst of our mind. After all, even if we support the conscious evolution or else, every busy individual would say it as just "rubbish talk".
Conscious evolution is a process by which we can individually and collectively take responsibility for our future. It is a process of giving direction to the evolution of human systems by purposeful action.
And, most importantly, Conscious Evolution enables us, if we take responsibility for it, to use our creative power to guide our own lives and the evolution of the systems and the communities in which we live and work. It is a process by which individuals and groups, families, organizations, and societies can envision and create images of what should be, and bring those images to life by design."
better take it literally.
Latin, it is a language made of smaller blocks stuck together. Helps if you know what the small blocks mean.
Lit: to cut together?
com (together/with) + scire (cf scindere [cut/divide] from root Skei- split, cut, divide separate)
Literal meaning: to distinguish parts to form a whole image/perception.
Greek cognate (should you ever get deep,
Syn [συν] (together/with cf com-) + Eidesis [ειδεσισ or ΕΙΔΕΣΙΣ] (to call, to identify, to name).
Evolution: from "evolve"
Literally: to roll out, expand, unfold, open out over time.
from Latin. evolvere "unroll," from ex- "out" + volvere "to roll" (see vulva).
To split/cut the whole into bits, you need to twist up: imagine a piece of paper, and you want to make an animal. In origami, you fold the paper to make the form.
Thus: consciousness involves (rolls into, twists up etc), rather than evolves, over time. In latin, the root "In-" means either "into" or "not". For instance: 'individual' means "not divisible", 'insane' means "not whole" contrasted those words with 'input' meaning "to put into" and 'impress' meaning "to press into". By involve I mean to roll into, e.g. to roll up, convolute, twist, corrupt etc. Corrupt means to break together e.g. consciousness (co- "together + ruptere "to break").
You want to learn more, this just makes more folds, more ideas, forms, constructs, concepts, more corruption. You call that evolving (but its involving), with the idea that at some point (a threshold), all the answers will come and life will be bliss and successful (e.g. lucrative).
What is beyond? Beyond means: literally-?around, about- that "over there" pointing to approximate location from a central point. Beyond is only apparent because brain has "involved" an image of self, such that over time the brain can compare/contrast images of where self is not, a concept the brain can perceive as something to become, to work for through further involving of consciousness (time).
Time (from old english Timon) is from the root Dimon (di "to cut" + mon "mind). There has to be a side to "involve", because without a side, there cannot be another side for which to compare/contrast.
There is the piece of paper, it is still the same thing, no matter how you fold it. Folding the paper does not change that driving the fold, just as mountain side does not change water flowing across it.
Actuality (that happening when thought ceases), is far more involving for the whole body, than "involving consciousness". Consciousness can involve all day, it might get you a good fantasy, but it won't get you laid.
What is beyond actuality? If you measure actuality (call it reality), then actuality is no more actuality, but a memory. Actuality is a word without value, meaning, or cause. Giving actuality a meaning brings rise to involution of consciousness.
Is conscious evolution just rubbish talk?
Vanity, vanity... thats all it is.
In my opinion it is not a valid point, just people afraid of randomness and lack of meaning in life.
Conscious Evolution is a new worldview that is now emerging rapidly and garnering worldwide interest and support. It acknowledges that humankind has attained unprecedented powers to affect, control and change the evolution of life on Earth...........Haven`t we messed with nature enough?
