Human Evolution and Unconscious Sabotage -
Questioning our Daily Life Problems
.
BeiYin: Humans have developed their thinking and emotional capacities, beyond the one animals have. Especially because humans are identified with their mental capacity, so they became self sufficient and are since then stuck on this step of evolution. And this since several thousand years. With all its consequences: Self destruction on all levels, endless wars and suffering all over the planet, coming near to the total destruction of all live on Earth.
.
Question: So then why have people chosen to be identified with their thoughts and feelings?
.
BeiYin: That happened at the moment when together with their thoughts and feelings they had developed their awareness about themselves. They found out that their thinking and feeling were abilities they were 'owning' and could be intentionally used to influence their surrounding and themselves. So then their thinking and feeling became their 'property', connected with all the already practiced behavior like defending their property and gathering and enlarging  it. As every body were doing this the best they could, so the individual interests were clashing against each other, competition started and the need to establish ones position and running after more, which in our days is called 'rat race'.
.
Question: Is this also one of the steps of human evolution?
....
BeiYin: Yes it is, but humanity is stuck since quite some time and because of this they are coming near to total destruction, individually and global, what shows up in daily worldwide happenings and also in one's daily private life.
.
Question: You mentioned the word 'awareness'. What is the exact meaning of it and is 'awareness' necessary for human evolution?
.
BeiYin: 'Awareness' is the capacity to be conscious about oneself and one's abilities like thoughts and feelings and of course also the 'awareness' of one's body. Yes, humans are in the state of developing their awareness especially this of their thoughts and feelings, what means that they become conscious about their reactions. Mostly they are still identified with their abilities as their properties and so also with their reactions, so they are just reacting and mostly not reflecting about it. They are not able to see what causes their reactions and mainly give the reason to the outside and circumstances and people.
.
Question: What is the meaning of being 'conscious' about oneself?
.
BeiYin: That means that one is aware of the fact that one 'exists'. This gives sense and a kind of 'fulfillment' to the individual and so humans try with all means to get more of this and as this feeling of existence is connected with one's 'properties' so then being  identified with them has brought with it a totally materialistic attitude, which not only includes properties on the material 'body' level but also on all others, those which one might call: intellectual, idealistic, emotional, self experience, self knowledge, spiritual, etc. Whatever humans do it serves in the first place to get 'self confirmation' and satisfaction and this gives the feeling of 'existence'. Humans are very busy with it and use every thing for it, that shows clearly that indeed they are 'stuck'.
.
Question: What can humans do for their evolution? How is it possible to get out of the state of 'being stuck'?
.
BeiYin: 'Being stuck' also means being blind and ignorant, or in other words: being not awake, because totally depending on conditions and circumstances. So humans manipulate whatever they can, to get what they need and want and all what they do serves in the first place to find 'self confirmation' and satisfaction. As humanity is being stuck in their materialistic world view and in the first place trying to satisfy their personal needs, so they have to go through a long way of personal struggling and disappointments, suffering up to the limit of what they can take - until they question themselves in all aspects of their doing and being. Very few humans are ready to get out of  this limited world view and attitude. So people search for different ways to satisfy themselves on a more subtle way. The dilemma is that whatever they do, the motivation still is the one of 'survival' and this means that they have still the urge to survive with their 'personality'. When they chose now to be 'spiritual' or religious, then mostly their materialistic world view hasn't been touched, but the 'spiritual' aspect gives them a new kind of security as their personality is now identified with new concepts of being 'spiritual', but this new dimension of ones being doesn't change anything essential about ones other properties or ones behavior or attitudes, it just adds another aspect, making ones 'personality' more secure and better to defend against all the many influences that are trying to attack the established state of being, that by the way is easily offended because it is in such a primitive state, depending totally on positions and conditions; with other words: On reactions in encounters with other self images and all those slightly different established concepts.
.
Question: How can one know if somebody is 'stuck'?
.
BeiYin: As this is a general situation for humanity, even there might be very rare exceptions, so you can presume that every body is stuck, even so they have more or less developed ways to satisfy their need for 'self confirmation' and satisfaction and also in the way they use others. They believe that they are developing themselves by adding more and more to their already established property: Intellectual, emotionally or with material stuff... But are people really happy? Of course not, they are building up more and more tension, trying to release this by more distraction or entertainment, longing for satisfaction, but not really finding it, so trying all kind of surrogates, but then finally ending up in disease and desperation. Isn't this obvious? Or is there any question about it?
.
Question: No, I have no more questions. I'm tired now and need a break. I can feel that some fear is arising. If all my concepts on which I have worked all my life long and which are giving me security and are helping me to survive, are just a mean to find 'self confirmation' for my personal existence, then how I can go beyond this, meaning that I have to drop it? Do you have a proof that humanity is 'stuck'? That would mean that I am also stuck!
.
BeiYin: The 'proof' is that you don't want to drop your concepts and your self image. When your fear shows up, then you don't want to continue with your questions, you are getting tired or whatever reason you may find... It is not possible that you drop your identity of which you are taking care all your life long and which is supported by society and all what surrounds you.
.
Question: Isn't there the hope that humanity grows out of being stuck and goes onto another level?
.
BeiYin: As long there is 'hope' then this is a good reason not to do anything to maybe change the situation. But it might be that there comes a kind of saturation, especially with those who have the power in this world and are manipulating every thing. These people are also human and even they are totally possessed by their power, they also will come to the moment when they will suffer, having an incurable disease or coming near to their death. Yes, they find ways to deep freeze their bodies to live for ever, but they might know that this is an illusion. But probably they are too deeply stuck in their power and self confirmation games and from there we can't expect any change. Even though at the moment there is no individual showing up who might represent a consciousness beyond the level of personality and its confirmation games, the only way possible that the change will happen is through the 'morphogenetic field'.
.
Question: It smells so strong after mouse excrement here.
.
BeiYin: There are no mice here, maybe from before, but I'm in my talk at a different subject and would like to continue... But I realize that it might be too much and your complain represents probably also the reactions of the readers of this dialog. So I better close...
.
Question: No, I'm sorry, I was distracted, - please continue.
.
BeiYin: I said that a change can only happen through the 'morphogenetic field' and that means a 'transformational change' that rises the level of awareness of whole humanity. At this moment there is too much resistance against any change and the established state of consciousness doesn't allow to be open for influences that doesn't support the security of  what's there. So there shows up resistance against every thing that doesn't confirm the personality in its established self image.
.
Question: Yes, I see: My comment about the bad smell came because I felt attacked and had no argument against it. This kind of self defense for sure happens quite often even one is not conscious about it. What can I do about it as it shows that I don't want to accept the 'truth'? It seems I can't trust myself and those reactions coming out of my unconscious defense need.
.
BeiYin: You can trust yourself in so far as there is an 'universal growing force' present in all existence and so also within yourself. All systems are included and also those that seems to be so much stuck in their established form. Your question shows that you might be ready and open for an answer. What you can do is that you observe yourself and your reactions, mostly expressing yourself out of the need to defend yourself. Then you will notice your  resistance and the tricks you are using to hold your established self image and keep it untouched, - boycotting all attempts that might provoke a change.
.
Question: Can we call this a kind of  'Self Sabotage'? As it is an attempt to keep us away from our inner truth and a real growing?
.
BeiYin: Yes, this unconscious sabotage shows up in all kind of situations and as it is 'unconscious' so it mostly stays unnoticed, unless it causes destruction as a result and then the fault is mostly given to other influences outside of oneself. People throwing sand into their own more or less well smoothly working machinery and also the one of others and so destroying the system that then needs to deal with that kind of forced changes. Yes, this is 'sabotage' and we are just wondering why this happens, not being able to see and to understand that this happens because of our tendency to defend the established system and ourselves doing absurd actions or we are avoiding to respond properly to a given situation and then this is causing destruction. We are calling it 'accidents' or 'bad luck' and don't realize that we have caused it ourselves. Letting oneself being manipulated and influenced by others is part of it and we all have to deal with the consequences: wasting our energy and getting sick and angry.
.
Question: Isn't there something we can do against this strong inbuilt defense tendency? So that we become conscious about it before we do such silly thing destroying ourselves or others?
.
BeiYin: Yes, there is and even a very simple and effective way and that is by understanding that 'stress' is causing a great deal of problems, even causing disease as a result. So doing something against 'stress' seems the most consequent step and who is ready and willing, because being tired of accumulating tension and turning around the same way with dealing with it, can practice a very simple but effective exercise, that is an 'awareness training' and I call it: 'StressReleaseExercise'. That indeed works and creates the necessary condition to be aware of ones 'personality games'. Unfortunately the same unconscious sabotage technique shows up in most people, by not being interested in this or other methods to rise ones awareness and so people are just not interested or when confronted they find a reason not to do it, so being able to continue with their established form, - suffering but not doing anything about it... Just the way the majority of humans do it.
.
Well established are also the many ways to keep oneself numb and unconscious, like smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, excessive eating habits, clinging fanatically on a specific concept, etc. These are established ways of sabotage to avoid to look at oneself, to ask questions and maybe start to have doubt about those worn out concepts and self images and in its resume: to allow ones growing, that might guide one beyond ones narrow 'personality'... To reach a state of being that is beyond all concepts, but only can be realized and not owned.
.
In one thing we may be absolutely sure and that is that we are growing and there can't be anything that might stop us. This inbuilt force will break any obstacle on the long run. We can help with a favorable attitude, but it happens anyway, even against our will, although then this will cause a lot of suffering. So better let's make suffering to something creative, by 'letting go' and understanding that this is part of our growing, that it is not possible to avoid it and that it is necessary to become conscious about ourselves. Resistance will fade away and self sabotage will be recognized before it can manifest itself. The horizon will be open...
