The present state of human evolution on this planet is in its early beginning
and so as well 'self-awareness'.
of oneself' is limited and always connected in this primitive state
with the identification with one's body, the body sensations, emotions
and thoughts, what mainly consist in any kind of reactions, although these
are mostly unconscious, even though there is identification and then there
is identification with all kind of property - inside and outside.
starts with the early childhood reactions. When there is no response received,
then there stays a lack, programed in one's unconscious background structure
which can remain during all life time and forces the individual to a certain
behavior and determinant doings, always looking for 'fulfillment' of one's
needs and so provoking the surrounding and other people, in all this totally
unconscious, but easily reasoning and finding an explanation. It is the
common 'obstacle and error' of this society. People getting their
feeling of existence from their identification with their properties:
Body, emotions and thoughts and with this also with their wishes, goals,
needs, beliefs, concepts, etc. then the same with all the other properties
they are gaining and for which they work hard, getting sucked and lost
by doing so. There is indeed hardly any 'self awareness'. Although
humans are part of evolution and so in a constant growing process - as
a whole and as well individually - the 'development' is hardly visible,
in the first place because the 'obstacles' are inbuilt as part of
human nature. To go beyond this would be a step beyond 'personality' and
this is only in a very few individuals possible whose evolution is far
ahead of the common... The majority of humans are in the process of building
up their 'personality'. Enriching it with all kind of properties on all
levels, until the individual - and this also happens with all kind of other
systems - blows itself up to such an extend that it might collapse, then
having the chance to go back and connect to one's essential being, having
gained self-awareness which doesn't depend on personality games and identification
and any kind of property. Then one can appreciate just 'being' and
don't need to find satisfaction and fulfillment in other things less essential.
