The New Enlightenment

by Owen K Waters

The legendary scientist Isaac Newton spent his entire life in fear of the possibility of being sentenced to death for heresy. Even as he published his Laws of Motion, he kept very quiet about his religious views.

Newton was a key figure in the Enlightenment, an era from the 1650s to the 1780s in which an age of science emerged. The development of reason and scientific analysis empowered individuals to free themselves of the oppressive power of church and social hierarchy.

The Inquisition was still alive and well in Europe, and there were even laws against peasant literacy. Incredible as it may seem today, there were towns where possession of written material by anyone other than the clergy or nobility was punishable by death. If you were caught with a book, you could be burned at the stake in the town square just like any herbal practitioners who ran afoul of the Inquisition.

Thanks to the invention of the printing press, books and even encyclopedias began to circulate, promoting literacy and the development of an active faculty of reason.

In metaphysical terms, this was a shift in the focus of consciousness from the lower to the higher aspect of the solar plexus chakra. The authoritarian age of social and religious hierarchy was being replaced by a sense of independence born out of the intelligent use of free will.

Today, we face another tide change in the consciousness of humanity and this is the big one. The age of solar plexus reasoning is being enhanced by a shift to heart-centered consciousness. Like all evolutionary shifts in consciousness before it, the new, higher level of thought incorporates all abilities that came before it and adds on a new and wider perspective of reality.

Today’s Shift adds a new standard of social awareness, social responsibility and heartfelt service to others. And that’s just the start of it. Those are just attributes of the lower aspect of heart-centered consciousness – the part where people get used to the feel of the new frequency. Next, comes the mastery part.

The New Enlightenment is dawning. As people master the new level of consciousness, they will use it to take action, transforming themselves from heart-centered to heart-powered people.

Those who are already aware of this new reality are the pioneers in the next revolution in human consciousness. And this is the revolution that will dwarf all previous shifts to higher consciousness.

The heart is the gateway to spiritual consciousness, to a place where inner purpose comes into focus, where life takes on true meaning, and where a sense of unity with all life emerges into everyone’s consciousness.

The New Enlightenment will be a new age of innovation where each person will have their own vision of a better world. And, with the support and cooperation of others, they will act to manifest that vision for the benefit of everyone.

Being as Well as Doing

by Owen K Waters

Many spiritual seekers have a nagging doubt about life, one which comes and goes and sometimes troubles them deeply. They intuitively feel that they are here on Earth to help humanity, but they just can’t seem to figure out what exactly they are supposed to be doing about it.

The problem really comes from our current training in Western society. We are taught, from a very early age, to do things and achieve outward results, to build monuments of our outward ‘doingness’ for all to see.

But, what about ‘beingness?’

The answer to the dilemma lies in understanding that there is a difference between doing and being, and your state of being does make a difference. It actually affects the mass consciousness of the world. As pointed out in the article, You Are Changing The World, the research behind the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness reveals the enormous power of just being, especially when you raise your consciousness in order to be the best you can be. You can support literally millions of people on planet Earth just by virtue of who you are, by being a person conscious at one of the higher chakra levels.

To reach 500 on the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, a person needs to be spiritually conscious. At this level, unconditional love and unconditional forgiveness become alive and well in their reality. Here, one person counterbalances 750,000 people who are below the 200 level that is critical for long-term human survival.

When a person has practiced meditation long and diligently enough to attain bliss consciousness at the 600 level, they are, at that moment, counterbalancing 10 million people below the 200 level.

Your chakra system is designed to receive energy from the cosmos and from the local environment. Your thoughts and feelings condition this life energy as it passes through you as it goes out into the mental environment, which is the atmosphere of the global mind or mind belt. The chakras are receiving and transmitting devices for mental and life energy. An individual is like a radio station – you transmit whatever program you are playing internally.

When you are operating from the frequencies of your upper chakra levels, you are operating in spiritual service to the world. You are spiritually conditioning the atmosphere of the global mind belt and making the world a better place.

While you are here on Earth, you are contributing who you are – your thoughts, your dreams and your passion for life – into the atmosphere of a global mind that is hungry for – more than anything else – spiritual light.
