The shift in our consciousness is happening all the time but is gathering speed. Stephen Hawking has set the ball rolling to find extra-terrestrial, alien, life despite his misgivings that we better watch our steps. The connection we seek could well doom us but leave it to our Creator to match us in “heaven” when He feels the time is right.

Innate Urge to Connect

Each generation faces realities that they are supposed to make sense of and carry on. We learn lessons along the way mostly by making mistakes as the good is taken for granted and soon forgotten. Harsh lessons resulting from going against reason leave their mark longer prompting danger signs that we better not cross again; the consequences are worse when we repeat them as our progress cuts both ways. Technology has increased our awareness as there is knowledge explosion – what happens anywhere is news all over the world. In fact, we are looking for alien life that shows an inborn thirst to connect with the far reaches of the universe – an innate urge that shows no respite. We are shouting from our “rooftops” – where are you, can you hear us? Even Stephen Hawking has endorsed the hunt for extra-terrestrial life though he had misgivings that it might not be a good idea; in fact, it can invite our doom! Where is the guarantee that the attention we seek will prompt those who are friendly to us? Hawking fears we could well be conquered and colonized! But the ball of creation is ever rolling and we are powerless to stop it, or where we are destined to go? Keep running to stay where we are - could also trigger this innate urge. We learn from history and march on with a gut feeling in the end. It all highlights the oneness of creation.

Weapons over Peace

There is knowledge explosion though we try to make sense of it. We try to separate the wheat from the chaff mostly by trial and error and have succeeded mostly despite some costly errors. We make weapons and give them to the good but some turn out to be bad! Then our tails are on endless fire! We are always dousing them but that process starts many others too – fighting fire with fire - and the process goes on ad nauseam! It reminds me of Mark Twain’s words – “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it”. Is there another way? Yes, but our pride and ego stand in the way! War seems easier than peace just like destruction over construction! We don’t want to cooperate as that is beneath our ego!

Evolution part of Creation

Is a shift to a higher consciousness happening? It looks like the signs and portents signify to that next step. We are now going around in circles and darkness is trying to overcome the light but our Creator will not allow that to happen having taken so much pains to evolve us over billions of years. At the same time, we cannot assume that there cannot be another species to replace us just because we cannot imagine one! Evolution is an ongoing process from the inception of time though I believe creation has no beginning and no end. What even Stephen Hawking was led to do despite his misgivings could well point out to the next phase in our journey of unbelievable possibilities – connecting with “others” and cooperating with them; when we are ready as they are! Yes, there is an unseen hand behind it all to make it happen.

Connecting the Dots

The shift in consciousness is ongoing, subtle, the seeds are sown and sprouting every moment and as we reap them, we are bound to move towards another phase in our eternal journey. With more material at hand by the day even those who came to mock could well understand the clear signs that another era is around the corner with “others” who could well be ahead in many ways and so able to hold our hands and even twist them if necessary to make us realize our follies! After all one need to pay a price for everything and that includes higher consciousness! Maybe, our Creator has to match many variables, a seamless integration, for the path he charts for the inclusive ride. Those who stand in the way could be history as the destination matters. Of course, some can well see this as just a figment of my imagination but I tend to believe there is meaning to every moment and try to connect the dots. Even as universe is expanding we are also part of a journey and want to connect with one another; no one wants to be left behind! No time to lose!

We maybe powerless to resist what is destined for us as actively looking for extraterrestrial/alien life could be a leap of faith - siva

Our awareness of "what is going on" is next to nothing! We have hardly scratched the surface of what creation is about.

Great article and congratulations on the star. It is strange that we often have the thought that it's all about us when we are just a speck of dust on another speck of dust in the universe. To think that we are alone in the vast expanse of space is certainly more than ridiculous. I sometimes wonder about the likelihood of us being discovered by others, but it appears that we probably have been. Hopefully any life forms that come here will be much further advanced than us and friendly. Blessings.

Thanks Kingwell, I agree with what you have said.

Life can exist anywhere and in other energy dimensions. I saw a video of what is said to be not a natural formation on the surface of Mars. And UFOs appear and disappear often. I feel what we have seen of aliens could well be robots while the real ones remain in the background for now. However, whatever is ordained in creation is bound to happen and I feel interconnection with others is a natural process in the not too distant future.

Life as what we see may not matter much in the whole scheme of things and our understanding of creation and meaning could just remain peripheral for now - siva

Dear Siva, the shift in consciousness from generation to generation is a natural result of man’s assumptions that every aspect of our being is in a state of flux and that it is an ever-changing process flowing through us. This process helps us to see and appreciate the reality of our interconnectedness with the next generation and with the universe. Consequently it gives us a sense of peace and stability in an ever-changing world.

Thanks dear Subra for your wise input.

We maintain the continuity from generation to generation through sharing our experiences so that mistakes are not repeated though the young tend to play with fire!

Certain roads we take with a gut feeling or rather go with the flow of creation like searching for extra-terrestrial/alien life. I feel it is more through an unseen wavelength to connect with creation everywhere, every time, and I do not restrict to what we can make of creation as I feel most of it are beyond us.

Maybe, we can still connect with our loved ones even after done here through prompts, dreams etc but they should keep the channel open! siva

Great article siva, that raises many questions in my mind.

Is a shift to a higher consciousness really happening in our collective lives, or not?

If this is so, the possibility of a higher consciousness must already exist for us to be able to move into it, or is it being more created by us as we grow in consciousness anyway.

Consciousness is often seen to be such a progressive laddering of love that we climb ever upwards.

The truth to me is though that we all live on the surface of love, and that there are really no such ladders of consciousness. If there were, they would take us away from love, not towards it.

Consciousness is created for us by love, as we love.

We do not grow into a higher consciousness level then, pre-existing for us like a new rung on a ladder.

No, to me, it is more like that we stay where we are, but as we love more, our strength of consciousness increases too, because consciousness is an added on field existing around love loving. It is existing like how a magnetic field exists (or is created) around electricity flowing through a conduit of itself.

Love loves.

Consciousness just observes or mirrors this loving back to us.

When we grow in consciousness then it is because we are growing in love. The growth in consciousness is just a by-product of this increased loving, not anything else (in the sense of its existing independently, or separately) of itself.

Thanks Spirited for your input and valuable thoughts.

I feel we are going around in circles with hatred trumping love in our daily lives often, though love is never defeated. This has been our bane from our beginning - time to break free!

Our beliefs are supposed to inundate us with love but often in our pettiness, it leads us to hate another who do not share our path.

We see others as less than worthy and that is where a higher consciousness will help towards genuine coexistence than keeping ourselves out of harm's way.

We should realize and live a path that we are from the same source and also destined to travel the same together.

We are now at the crossroads where our search for extra-terrestrial life adds the thrust and also acts as the booster rocket towards a higher level of awareness. I can see such an urge everywhere as China is building a super telescope to contact those who could well be eyeing us, hopefully with love!

Hawking has his misgivings for contacting "others" but it is sort of "willed" that he goes with the flow towards the next stage - siva

thanks siva,

The problem is that these super powers want to get more "super" by any means possible.

They would like to "borrow" (steal) what they can, even from aliens too, if it would boost their own coffers.

Let's hope a greater awareness is accompanied with a greater love too!

A higher consciousness? It depends on how you define consciousness, but I have my doubts about whether we're getting to a higher one.

Thanks LeRain.

My take is we can go only higher as we are at the bottom in terms of of coexistence. We have hardly scratched the surface of our potential in terms of living with love and compassion, playing our roles as co-creators.

We should convert our dreams into reality - siva

Thanks again Spirited. Sometimes the common citizens want their leaders to act tough, show belligerence, than compassion and love. Then the trap is set!

Yes,, the superpowers could well be motivated by the resources in the outer reaches and plunder them for themselves! What China is building is one hell of a telescope that can attract all and sundry!

Maybe, the aliens we seek could well turn out to be our forefathers who could then thank us and share their wisdom through their experiences of after-life! That should wake us up once and for all, not what the higher consciousness we seek!

However our Creator is ever forgiving - siva

Thank you Siva, for unveiling this topic. The things which you put your beautiful thoughts on, need to be unraveled. These issues are not to be overlooked and we cannot let them be overshadowed by trivial issues of daily life like love and affection. We are mere quantum in this limitless universe so how could we not expect to be annihilated and dominated by the unknown any time sooner. Loved the article

Thank you Kanu for finding deeper meaning to my post.

There is a higher purpose to our lives as we are supposed to play our roles as co-creators in line with our inner awareness. But we waste our time trying to set one God against another as if they are competing with each other forgetting we are from the same source!

Yes, every species is allotted time and individually we should leave our footprints that matter to creation - siva

Thanks for sharing this article ~ Siva. It provokes me to laughter and serious thought I especially like what you said:

"We make weapons and give them to the good but some turn out to be bad! Then our tails are on endless fire! We are always dousing them but that process starts many others too – fighting fire with fire - and the process goes on ad nauseam!"

What you said here is sad but so profoundly true: "War seems easier than peace just like destruction over construction! We don’t want to cooperate as that is beneath our ego!"

Thanks ~ again ~ Siva ~ for sharing your wisdom and insight.

Blessings!

Thanks Helen, I feel the main issue is our prejudice right from time immemorial.

I have a view - all are good under right conditions but we should give them space too.

I look at actions and when I do I find actions speak louder than words. For some the person matters more and that will doom us. Many are unsung heroes in our midst - siva

Yes, Siva, evolution is powerful and I am thankful I lost my tail. However, I could do with the wings.
Seriously, conscience does dictate but the conscious follows the immediate here and now.
Well brought out, again as in articles before.

Thanks Snerfu, you are really missed here. I know you are busy elsewhere too. Agreed our wings are clipped for a reason and also the tail!

We tend to become wise after the events and then forget! Every generation is different and more so now with accelerating changes in technology leading towards a global village.

Our Creator used to be more hands-on earlier, sometimes giving directions, but now he seems to be rather distant! He has a reason having given us an inner awareness to chart out our own path - sort of it is our call whether we want to survive - siva

We have seen almost everything - reaching the nadir but rising up soon after in one piece after paying the price. So lessons are learned but we have only to remember them!

Thanks Abdul for your motivation.

We are interconnected through an unseen thread, but we sense it every moment. We want to be together and our inner voice implores us to believe in the oneness though we are created uniquely to add value to creation - siva
