I am fully aware that they are higher forms of consciousness that can free you from the Matrix. I have experienced it myself and know that there is truth in that. My concern is that there is a fine line between that, and narcissism.
I am a very practical person. World hunger will not end through Collective Consciousness. World Hunger exists because of apathy and indifference. Poor choices feed World Hunger.
World Peace will not occur through Collective Consciousness. World Peace does not exist, because of Stupidity. Stupidity is like a Cancer, it just spreads and grows. No amount of Meditation will cause World Peace to arise.
It is a simple choice between stupid choices and actions, and wise choices and actions. Unfortunately we live in a World filled with Stupidity, and that is the reason our World is so screwed up.
Do all you can to become the best person you can be each day, and spread love and peace wherever you go.
