The (R) evolution of Consciousness
Who will be the 100th Monkey?
Iíve previously written
about the aspect of an omni-present, unified All-Knowing energy-- which I
believe occupies the conscious continuum (Symphony of the Conscious Continuum).
In my reading, I came across an interesting concept Iíd like to share
had observed a species of Japanese monkey (Macaca Fuscata) in the wild for more
than 30 years. In 1952, Koshima Island
scientist provided the monkeys a food source: sweet potatoes that had been
dropped in the sand. They observed
that though the monkeys liked the sweet potatoes, they found the sand on them
18-month-old female, who began to wash her potatoes in the salty ocean--
eliminating the dirt and improving the taste, solved this problem.
She taught this trick to her mother.
Her playmates also learned the trick and taught it to their mothers.
Other monkeys in the troop picked up the cultural innovation gradually.
Only the adults who imitated their children utilized this method while
the others kept eating dirty potatoes.
the autumn of 1958, something phenomenal took place.
It was observed that a large amount of monkeys were washing their
potatoes. The exact number however,
is unknown. Scientists therefore
assigned the hypothetical number of 99 to these phenomena.
it happened, the 100th monkey learned to wash its sweet potato.
The conscious energy of the one monkey
somehow created an ideological breakthrough.
Almost every monkey in the tribe was washing their potatoes before eating
surprising was that scientists observed that the habit of washing potatoes had
jumped overseas. Colonies of monkeys on other islands, as well as the mainland
troop in Tokoskiyama began washing their potatoes.
phenomenon seems to lend itself to something more than the knowledge of food
preparation is possible to be disseminated collectively.
We are all parts of the same whole.
When we are able to tap into the continuum of consciousness and obtain
(r) evolutionary insight; sharing the information obtained with other
individuals, somehow injects energy into a frequency within the continuum until
finally, critical mass is reached.
When this happens, it triggers an energetic switch that opens the flood gates of
the continuum, transmitting en force the frequency of the acquired insight;
thereby activating the receptors that exist within our collective of
consciousness allowing the veil to be pierced and the acquired insight to be
disseminated mind to mind via the continuum.
the young monkey was open to receive this way because she was able to move
beyond the mass hypnosis of habit allowing the manifestation of other
alternatives other possibilities, by which she could act upon.
moment, we too are presented with opportunities to step out of the mass hypnosis
perpetuated by our refusal to rid ourselves of habits, beliefs and superstitions
that no longer serve our higher purpose.
Some remain bound slaves to un-serving belief systems because: spiritual
leaders say so or itís what our grandparents/parents have always done or simply
because everyone else is doing it.
However, if we take the time to ask ourselves why we do the things we do,
especially when it is something that causes us to feel uneasiness within we
might use as an excuse some of the reasons previously mentioned.
time to wake up! Itís time to snap
out of our hypnotic state and open our minds to the energies of creation. Who
knows, if enough of us do this we may just reach critical mass.
Any one of us, like that 100th monkey can usher in a new way of being of
thinking which benefits the collective of humankind as we join together--one
with another on our journey along the path to enlightenment.
So who will be the hundredth monkey? Will it be
