"It's what we think we know that keeps us from learning."
Where did human beings come from? How did we come to be? Why are we here?
These are cardinal inquiries that few people in modern society have bothered to seriously pursue. Have you? If you haven't, the first question you should ask yourself is: Why? Why haven't I sought answers to these fundamentally human questions?
A typical response to that question is "Because I already know the answers." And how do we "know"? Because "experts" and "authorities" have given their carefully crafted "answers" to us. Therefore, there is no need for you or me to look into such things for ourselves.
But those same "authorities" and "experts" have a long history of contriving and disseminating stories that are full of holes, half truths, distorted truths and outright lies—particularly when it comes to major historical events. So why, then, would we assume that their most heavily propagated theories of human origins—the preeminent human "event"—would be any less deceptive and manipulative?
The reality is that [collective] human consciousness has been intentionally steered toward and confined within one of two primary ideological camps: Some version of either Creationism or Darwinism.
Though antithetical on the surface, closer inspection reveals the telling foundational common ground these two ideologies share:
~Both are false-religion doctrines—dogmatic belief systems instilled and promulgated via cultural religion and scientism, and unquestioningly accepted by their adherents.
~Both debase human beings by concealing and obfuscating the truth of our immeasurable value and our powers and abilities as co-creators of reality, albeit through contrary narratives:
Creationism positions the many as lowly creatures who will lead lives of joy and prosperity, or misery and suffering, in accordance with the will, and at the mercy of an omniscient, all-knowing, all-powerful "being".
Conversely, Darwinism positions alleged "time-evolved" homo sapiens as the superior, "highest-ranking" species on Earth, destined to hold dominion over all "lesser" creatures and nature's abundant resources, thus entitling "us" (read: "behind-the-scenes" beings) to harness and exploit both however "we" see fit toward fulfilling "our" self-serving egoic desires.
Both ideologies revolve around allaying further investigation into our origins through the use of seductive expositions which totally bypass our personal responsibility and satisfy curiosity enough to keep it at bay by "reasonably" connecting the dots of human origins.
The resultant degraded human consciousness undermines the quality of our co-creative abilities, ergo the quality of our manifest conditions.
AN EXPLORATORY VOYAGE—NOT A DESTINATION
Doing your own investigation and sensing into your own inner knowing of human origins is a vital step on the awakening journey. Unquestioning acceptance of any ideology—whether faith-driven or framed as "fact" based—binds humanity to extremely limited, low-level consciousness, resulting in collective as well as individual consciousness regression.
The modern proverb, "Life is a journey, not a destination," imparts a profound truth as to the true inherent nature of human beings. At the most fundamental level of our beingness, those of us on a conscious journey of awakening are explorers on an ongoing expedition to seek out and become familiar with the unfamiliar in order to facilitate ongoing expansion of our conscious awareness for the purpose of enabling our capacity to transduce the higher-order intelligence and creational capacities of Core Self.
We must tap into and cultivate our natural proclivity for questioning and challenging the status quo—and be willing to abandon erroneous ideologies, paradigms and beliefs which harm and hold us back. We must consciously seek out and scrutinize without fear or bias, then prudently weigh information that stretches the current dimensions of our minds.
We must free ourselves from attachment to any ideologies, paradigms and beliefs in constant pursuit of truth. We must develop the courage to say "I don't know" and be at peace with that while we continuously seek to discover for ourselves and come to understand the true origins of ourselves and our world.
