Could An Extinction Event Save the Humans & the Planet?

Thom plus logo While most conversations about global warming end with concern about the possible extinction of the human race, long before that happens, nation after nation around the world will collapse, leading to a larger collapse of civilization itself.

When we look at the last 50,000 years of human history, we see that time after time, cultures eat everything that's edible and destroy their local ecosystems, producing famine and violence. Out of this, some societies remain stuck in cannibalism and difficulty; others opt for an ecological way out of their problems and their societies become successful and peaceful and in ecological balance. From the people of New Zealand, to New Caledonia, to the original people of North America and Australia, we have seen these patterns and choices repeated over and over.

Now, as we face our own ecological crisis that will almost certainly lead our civilization to collapse, the question is: Will we emerge from it more warlike, or peaceful and ecological?

16 Differences Between Highly Evolved Beings (HEBs) and Humans Living in an Unawakened State

In Conversations with God-Book 4: Awaken the Species we are told that there are Highly Evolved Beings who live in another dimension in our universe who are assisting human civilization in its evolutionary process. When asked, "What is the difference in their behaviors and those of humans?", God replied. "I can give you a list of them." Here, from the text, is that list. These are the common behaviors of Highly Evolved Beings, as compared to the behaviors of those humans who are living in an unawakened state.

1. An awakened species sees the Unity of All Life and lives into it. Humans in an unawakened state often deny it or ignore it.

2. An awakened species tells the truth, always. Humans in an unawakened state too often lie, to themselves as well as others.

3. An awakened species says one thing and will do what they say. Humans in an unawakened state often say one thing and do another.

4. An awakened species, having seen and acknowledged what is so, will always do what works. Humans in an unawakened state often do the opposite.

5. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concepts that humans refer to as “justice” and “punishment.”

6. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as “insufficiency”

7. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as “ownership.”

8. An awakened species shares everything with everyone all the time. Humans in an unawakened state often do not, only sharing with others in limited circumstances.

9. An awakened species creates a balance between technology and cosmology; between machines and nature. Humans in an unawakened state often do not.

10. An awakened species would never under any circumstances terminate the current physical expression of another sentient being unless asked directly by that other being to do so. Humans in an unawakened state often kill other humans without that other human requesting them to.

11. An awakened species would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm the physical environment that supports the members of the species when they are physicalized. Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

12. An awakened species never poisons itself. Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

13. An awakened species never competes. Humans in an unawakened state are often in competition with each other.

14. An awakened species is clear that it needs nothing. Humans in an unawakened state often create a need-based experience.

15. An awakened species experiences and expresses unconditional love for everyone. Humans in an unawakened state often cannot imagine even a Deity who does this, much less do they do it themselves.

16. An awakened species has harnessed the power of metaphysics. Humans in an unawakened state often largely ignore it.

=================================

(Each item on the above list is fully explained in the text of CWG-Book 4: Awaken the Species.)

Asked if we might have just a brief example of what is meant by Item #4 , the dialogue offers this, in God’s voice:

If your objective is to live a life of peace, joy, and love, violence does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to live a life of good health and great longevity, consuming dead flesh daily, smoking known carcinogens continuously, and drinking gallons of nerve-deadening, brain-frying liquids like alcohol regularly does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to raise offspring free of violence and rage, placing them directly in front of vivid depictions of violence and rage during their most impressionable years does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to care for Earth and wisely husband her resources, acting as if those resources are limitless does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

If your objective is to discover and cultivate a relationship with a loving Deity so that religion can make a difference in the affairs of humans, then teaching of a god of righteousness, punishment, and terrible retribution does not work. This has already been demonstrated.

Climate change is a hoax, a scam.

Barack Obama just plopped down $14.8 million for an estate on Martha's Vineyard. It is beachfront property. Why would he or anyone do that if rising sea levels due to climate will swallow it up in 10-20 years. Can someone give me an honest reason?
