We have always had the desire or the inner drive to Be Who We Truly Are.
Our Authentic Selves are loved and loving.
We seek to be loved and loving in different manners throughout cultural history and our individual personal histories or development. In the earliest stages of human history and child development we felt love by being given and providing Safety and Security. Those that need these things are given them by their parents or by the group efforts of the clan or tribe. When we’re older and more capable we provide this for ourselves and each other. In that sense it is an authentic expression of love.
As we move through history to a time where it is not a daily struggle for survival we see we look to have more choice in how we live our lives. We can express our love of self and others by choosing our trade and in giving to the community through our work. As a child we now are given gradually more autonomy in the choices we can make. So at this stage of development we begin to access a sense of Control.
In the macro view over the ages of human history and development and in the more personal micro view we are moving up the Chakras.
At any time fear or ego can take over and we forget about our true nature that is Love. Ego can take Safety and Security and turn it into hiding or aggression. Fear of not having Control can slip into panic and flight or ego will try to dominate.
In the most recent Age collectively we have been developing the Third Chakra. Some societies are still working on One and Two but generally speaking we’ve been developing our sense of Power. The expression of Love in the Third Chakra manifests as appreciation of each other and ourselves. We value, include and approve of each other.
Ego or fear turns these thing upside down. When we feel we are not appreciated or valued we try to prove ourselves worthy or in an aggressive way we try to dominate.
When we are Self Empowered we provide
- Safety and Security,
- Autonomy (or Control), and
- Acceptance and Approval
to ourselves and others. We have dominion over our lives and seek to honour and accept others, never dominate or rule.
Humanity at a Crossroads
Individually we develop at different rates. Collectively we do so as well. Some individuals have developed beyond the Fourth and Fifth stages as have some societies. Some groups, societies, cultures or countries are still developing the First and Second, many are at the Third and some are beginning the Fourth.
Humanity is at a crossroads where we are about to collectively embark on the development of the Heart Chakra. With enough individuals and societies moving into this personal area of development Humankind will as well.
The Heart expresses love through Compassion and Understanding. It embodies all of the expressions of Love of the three lower chakras as well. It is Inclusive and sees the Wholeness of all.
Ego again turns these things backwards. Compassion becomes pity which is self-interested in that ego would not want to be in that other person’s shoes. In this way it is judgemental placing one above another. Without Compassion one cannot be Inclusive, Understanding or Loving.
In this Age of Authenticity we are Being Who We Truly Are.
- Compassionate and Understanding of ourselves and each other
- Whole and Inclusive
- Loved and Loving
We Are Love♥
