People around the world were captivated by James Cameron’s film Avatar, and his depiction of the Na’vi, a blue-skinned race living in a lush alien world.
But did this advanced people demonstrate a fall in consciousness?
Could they have responded differently to the American invasion of their planet?
And what’s the relevance of Avatar to today’s situation?
Some are saying that we are right now in World War III, but this time it’s not a war between nations but between the wealthy/powerful/controlling élites and the rest of humanity.
You won’t find much on the mainstream media about this but there are plenty of credible people making thought-provoking statements about the current world dynamics – everything from the virus and global lockdown to vaccination and eugenics, to subterfuge around the climate issue, to the huge inroads being made right now around the world into high-level funding of sex trafficking and paedophilia, to bizarre developments in the Monarchy, to a long-ago hatched plan to institute Communism worldwide… Extraordinary as it all sounds, if you dive down the rabbit hole you may find yourself confronted with enough evidence to figure that there must be something in it.
One speaker, who was commenting on alarming papers published on NASA’s website anticipating a war on humanity at large, made the observation that we ‘can’t win this war by a revolution – it will require a revelation’. These powers have the technological superiority and means to wipe dissenters out in a moment, so the solution is not resistance or battle; it’s got to be a growth in consciousness.
Which brings me back to Avatar: in case you haven’t seen it, they are an apparently primitive race but have a highly advanced sense of connection with each other and with Nature. Their gathering place is the ‘Hometree’, which is located above the largest deposit of the mineral unobtanium on their planet. American interests are, of course, keen to mine that mineral and don’t care about destroying the sacred tree, the environment in general, or the natives themselves.
I was hoping to see a game-changing response by the Na’vi – I wanted to see them applying their advanced spiritual awareness to thwart the lower consciousness of the Americans who were planning to attack them, but instead they dropped to the same level (imho) and battled it out.
Why not demonstrate their higher consciousness by using their minds and power of love to transform the situation rather than engaging in a game of defence and attack?
For the rest of this blog I’d like to share one of the Addendums to my new novel, Power of the Light, in which I expand on this idea of how we might win a war via higher consciousness.
The Next (current) War
“We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds.” – Paul Levy
It is no longer be possible to fight ‘the enemy’ with physical weapons: whoever has the greater or more sophisticated arsenal of weapons will win. The science fiction scenarios described in films like Star Wars (Artificial Intelligence and robot armies) and The Omega Man (pandemics as bioweapons) are today realistic scenarios.
Consequently, any major conflict can no longer be won by force. The ‘worthy opponent’ simply has too much physical and political power, even if that opponent only comprises 1% of the population. How, then, do the relatively unarmed ever vanquish their enemy?
Not by revolution, but by revelation.
By the power of the light.
By enlightened thinking and behaviour.
By responding to attack with love, poise and intelligence.
The response of love, poise and intelligence might not be easy, but it is possible.
If this sounds absurd to you, consider that a ‘miracle’ is simply the action of a higher law.
Criminal activity is a reaction to disempowerment, and punishment is a reaction to criminal activity, but when the number of meditators in a particular area reaches a critical number, violent crime in those areas decreases.
This outcome looks like a miracle but it’s simply the consequence of applying a higher law. Meditation has a stress-reducing and coherence-creating effect on individuals and society at large. Meditation is a higher law (= more enlightened response) than criminal activity.
Studies suggest there are underlying connections between individuals, and that a large enough group practising meditation will generate an extended ‘field-like’ effect in society. (The studies into this phenomenon demonstrate a significant result, not a random result. Eg. A study conducted between July 2006 and January 2007 by Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield Iowa.)
Just as only 1% of the population might be mal-intentioned but have the capacity to influence the other 99%, studies like the one mentioned above indicate that we only need 1% of the population meditating to see a significant effect. Imagine if more people were to apply this higher law... What would happen to the so-called enemy’s power?
This is a balanced universe: every positive is balanced by a negative, every particle by an anti-particle. There is no such thing as pure evil or pure good, as the yin/yang symbol reveals: light holds the potential for darkness and darkness holds the potential for light. Our ‘enemy’ is therefore also our ally, a ‘worthy opponent’: enemies challenge us to develop ourselves beyond what we might achieve in comfortable times.
Which brings us to one of the most transformational states of mind that exists: appreciation. When we consistently look for how an experience serves us, we activate an emotional frequency, or vibration, of love and gratitude. This enlightened state of mind is a higher law…
