The Age Of Indigo Man
Our world is in cultural and environmental chaos. I do believe however we are living in great times! We are witnessing the beginning of the end of the 'New World Disorder.' Welcome to the Age of Indigo Man.
The Age of Aquarius is upon us. With a little bit of luck, Nostradamus may finally be left to rest in peace. Yes, true, the world has gone somewhat mad. But there is also method in all of this. The 'mess' we have made is merely a part of our evolutionary process. The frog had to drink up almost half the pond it lives in, before it could leap across it and into the light. No, we did not get here by accident. It’s all part of the Big Plan, the Blueprint. The philosopher, Gerald Heard, realized this fact many years ago when he speculated on the evolutionary growth of our cultural consciousness, and the psychological make-up of modern man. In Pre-historic times we were obviously, for the most part, primitive and content with our day-to-day existence. We were merely Pre-Individuals. There was little awareness of ‘me, myself and I.'
In those pre-individual times everybody lived together in perfect harmony... most of the time, anyway!
Gerald Heard, as Aldous Huxley’s spiritual mentor, must be acknowledged as true grandfather of the New Age ~ Charles E. Vernoff
Of course, this state of affairs became really dreary and boring after some time had passed. The humdrum existence of Co-Conscious Man must also have been remarkably uninspiring... with everyone thinking long the same lines and no new ideas coming to the fore. The need for adventure, exploration and novelty grew, which made the way clear for Heroic Man to emerge. We began to strive for more. To be bigger, better, stronger.
Naturally, all the conquest and victory during that period brought us very little contentment. Our mental capacity increased and our consciousness turned from outward adventure to inner discovery. Humankind had reached adolescence. As expected the world had suddenly become a very confusing place. We needed answers, we needed guidance, and we needed belief systems and moral values. Thus, Ascetic Man emerged and created the great religions of the world, and in the process destroyed many of his fellow men to promote or protect what he came to believe. Additionally, as a bonus to this newfound sense of destiny, we inherited much guilt, shame and confusion.
Philosopher Gerald Heard traces the evolution of man's consciousness, and the attempts he has made to evolve or dilate consciousness beyond the ordinary and limited self-consciousness of the human ego, to a higher acceptive consciousness that is, Heard asserts, mankind's evolutionary imperative ~ Bhuddini
But, Humanic Man came to the rescue with the arts and the sciences. The individual escaped the confines of the collective tribe. We pursued logic, rational analysis and subjugation of the subconscious. The collective unconscious was generally dismissed, and the spirituality of mankind began to suffer. Meanwhile we moved on to increasingly destroying our environment and initiating the potential collapse of our natural resources. You and I are now living in the post-individual age of Leptoid Man... or what I prefer to call the age of Indigo Man. Our world is in cultural and environmental chaos. I do believe however we are living in great times! We are witnessing the beginning of the end of the 'New World Disorder.' The time has come to reclaim our transcendental values– even if we cannot prove them scientifically! We must realize the urgent need for all of us to leap into a much wider and far more superior level of consciousness. We have reached a new stage in our development and we are set to either become highly-evolved spiritually, or face a global tragedy. This is our legacy and our only true destiny. © 2010 Anthon St. Maarten
