That you are here is indication there is something for you to create, be and do. With every new idea your life becomes a canvass to be filled. There is nothing to complete because life is always in motion, life is always evolving and you are always growing. Nothing you have done so far was the end only the first in the series of steps waiting for more to be added to form that which you will become. Worry not that all the education, jobs, activities, or creations do not seem to go together for they will all mesh together as the collective ingredients in what you will create, be and do in the future.

The Evolution of Human Response and Practice

Good day to all from my Skycastle in Germany where I prepare excitedly for the next step in my joyful journey as an inspirational/motivational speaker and teacher.

Todays article is about our development as humans from survival of the fittest to survival of the wisest---Deepak Chopra

This article is my take on this concept.

In the beginning of our human development we were focused in survival because we were not the most predatory creatures on earth. We needed to protect ourselves, either by fight or flight, in order to survive. It was a necessary response for survival. We acted, automatically and immediately, to a stimulus that was presented, without much thought. We responded with a fight or flight reaction and it was all about survival of the fittest. And now, with no predator after us, we still respond with the fight or flight, we are acting automatically and immediately with a defensive stance, being indifferent or overly nice, by passing that place between the catalyst and reaction. That place is calm insightful response. That place where we use our intuition, wisdom and observation. This is the place where we need to stop and just observe, without criticism, and without worrying of others opinions. Deepak Chopra calls it The Restful Awareness Response. We are on the cusp of Survival of the Wisest.

Evolution: A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form. The process of developing, gradual development, change in the genetic composition of a population during successive generations, as a result of natural selection acting on the genetic variation among individuals, and resulting in the development of new species and the historical development of a related group of organisms; phylogeny.

We have gotten stuck in our early human development of fight or flight. Still feeling, on a genetic level that there is a predator awaiting us, fearful we remain in a state of constant alert of the dangers; therefore we engage in thoughts of our defense. These defense thoughts range from reviewing the exact words that you will wield if so-and-so says this or says that to what you will do if they do this or that. We entertain dreadful scenarios and how best to respond to protect ourselves from an onslaught of dreadful perpetrators, of course all the while not understanding that it was our own thoughts that manifested the attack; and most often the attack only took place in our minds. Non-the-less we have, in this state of defense, sparked the beginning of an unwanted manifestation. But because we did not understand our own power of manifesting, we site our anticipated scenarios as proof; we say, “See, I knew this would happen”

Still being caught up in survival, I believe, is the reason we have this tendency to listen more often or make a deity of the male energy. We call God a father, a man, in need of feeling secure, protected, and defended. We listen more seriously to the male speaker, guide or profit. Because Source or the Universe knows that we will listen or take more seriously, for learning, the male energy, the ascended male entity is sent. It matters not that most often the male entity is coming through a female, it is non-the-less male. This is because we are focused in survival and feel the need for the protective strength of the male energy. We must, for our evolvement, to come out of fear of survival, the need for brute force, protection and the need for defense, listen more often to the female energy of intuition, wisdom and grace.

"Both male and female qualities exist in the body. The male qualities are arrogance, strength, egoism, and fanaticism while the qualities of humility, reverence, devotion to God, beauty, and grace are the qualities of womanliness, the beautiful qualities. They male’s arrogant qualities want to control the beautiful female qualities and get on top of them--- By Bawa Muhaiyaddeen

I am not degrading the male counterpart for we need the balance and I am utterly stimulated by the powerful energy of the male.

I am speaking of how we tend to listen to that which is primarily a male direction, survival of the fittest, turning to physical strength for control rather than listening to a female direction because we embrace survival of the wisest, of getting on top of our thoughts to manifest that which we desire; and instead of controlling our manifestations of fear we must manifest the desired which has no need for control.

Although we have evolved as an organism we still are caught up in survival of the fittest. But we are on the cusp, what Deepak Chopra states, of survival of the wisest.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change”---Charles Darwin

The change is upon us, the change from survival of the fittest to the survival of the wisest.

There is a difference between being intelligent and being wise.

Intelligent: –adjective, having good understanding or a high mental capacity; quick to comprehend, as persons or animals:

Wise: –adjective, having the power of discerning and judging properly as to what is true or right; possessing discernment, judgment, or discretion.

The difference between having intelligence and being wise is the difference between possessing knowledge of the collegiate documentations of our world and possessing wisdom or deep understanding of our innate ability, being Source energy in physical form, to manifest what we desire with our thoughts rather than with physical force.

How can we manifest anything we desire if we are caught up in fight or flight, neither is a foundation of manifesting anything other than conflict? Being caught up in fight or flight, or survival, keeps you focused in survival. A focus in survival shall never be a foundation for manifesting a life experience we prefer because we shall be caught in a cycle of stimulus and reaction, stimulus and reaction focusing on that which we actually do not want.

Evolving is what manifesting is all about; moving past knee jerk reaction, in fear of survival, into that place of a calm insightful response.

How do you do this; by noticing the stimulus without criticism of the event/person, worrying not of other opinions and observe. This is the turning point from the knee jerk, early evolution, of engaging in the conflict to the calm insightful response; even knowing that a response is rarely even necessary.

It is the time to just observe and be curious of the event/incitement. Make a choice to just be curious, make your wise assessment from your intuition and move away from the incitement. When you engage in the incitement you fall back into fight or flight, into survival, and by pass your evolution of survival of the wisest.

From an intelligent stand point we think that we need to stop thinking or doing the unwanted thing, however for humans, this is a difficult processes. It is wiser, easier and more beneficial to replace the unwanted thought or action with the wanted thought or action.

Wisdom is ignoring fearful ideals and entertaining loving ideals. There is no need for courage within a life that focuses only on what is desired. Courage is only needed in making that step away from the unnecessary common belief of survival of the fittest to the needed less common belief of survival of the wisest.

We are on the cusp from believing we need physical brute strength to survive, using tools and weapons, to evolving into beings that understand that we create all matter from thought.

It is time to practice calm insightful response, furthermore practice the insight of knowing that a response isn’t always needed. Let the tendency of fight or flight fall away and embrace a tendency to observe, without opinion, and turn to your calm insight ever knowing that you have the ability to create/manifest the life experience, in your environment, that you desire.

There are an infinite number of realities occurring here, at the same time, manifested by each individual. Some are of hell and some are of heaven. The good news is that if your reality is of hell you have the ability to manifest a reality of heaven on earth.

You are the creator, the manifester of your reality. Use your calm insight of this and respond to the unwanted with thoughts of the wanted. Listen and observe the female energy of reverence and devotion to, who you really are, Source energy in physical form, wielding great power to manifest the life experience so desired.

The answer to every question is, “Focus on that which you desire”

Be Well
