One simple step to raise your consciousness

One simple step to raise your consciousness

Transcript

Transcript: Most humans on the planet, how conscious are they? In today's world? Yes. In Los Angeles. You spent time here. Let's take the whole world. I don't want to make a judgement of Los Angeles. In the whole world, it's unfortunately a very miniscule percentage. Miniscule. Why is this so? Why is it people are not conscious? The fundamental reason is, they have taken themselves too seriously. They don't understand that they're just a pop-up on the planet. They'll pop-up and pop-out. But big fuss about that. What is me, has become too important. What is me means, my physical form is me essentially. Isn't it? So, once my limitations become very important, there is no way to be conscious. You're just becoming self-defeating in the process, it doesn't matter how hard you try. The only, and only, reason why the entire world is not naturally enlightened is, they're dead serious about their lives. They've not come to ease with their lives, they're too serious about it. See, I mean you've just been through Inner Engineering online process. If you take the very solar system, in this cosmos the solar system is a tiny spec. In that spec, planet Earth is a microspec. In that microspec, Los Angeles is a super microspec. In that, you're a big man. This is a serious problem, not a small problem. So once you create this problem, then you cannot be conscious. You can only be mentally alert, because it is all about survival. The more mentally alert you become, more you tend to become like a carnivorous animal. You know a carnivorous animal is very mentally alert because every day he has to hunt his food. This is the nature of a carnivorous animal. Once, your alertness, mental alertness, goes that way, you become like a predator. Always looking, what you can get, what you can get, what you can get. It may be in whatever levels of life that people are involved in, but all the time they're trying to grab something because mental alertness creates that. I'm not saying you should not be alert. But if you're conscious and alert, then it works in a different way. But if you just ramp up your mental alertness, you will become like a hunter, all the time waiting. Crouching for something.
