Alive By Loving

Andrey Remnev

“This problem cannot be solved collectively, because the masses are not changed unless the individual changes. At the same time, even the best-looking solution cannot be forced upon him, since it is a good solution only when it is combined with a natural process of development. It is therefore a hopeless undertaking to stake everything on collective recipes and procedures. The bettering of a general ill begins with the individual, and then only when he makes himself and not others responsible. This is naturally only possible in freedom, but not under a rule of force, whether this be exercised by a self-elected tyrant or by one thrown up by the mob.”

— C.G. Jung, Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious


“Their biggest mistake. They knew that the human collective was reaching a very high vibration. But they weren’t aware of the amount of awake souls. They noticed the evaluation error. And they got scared. Now they don’t hide anymore. Now they are in a hurry to officially launch a “new world order”. Now their attacks are direct and frontal. And the attacks will increase. They will try by all means to keep people from waking up.

Connect with your soul. And watch yourself.

…above all, have fun, be happy, smile, sing, dance. Loves. We are alive by loving everything. And you are part of it. Together with the stars and the sun. And to all the galaxies of the universe. You are love.”


— Alejandro Jodorowsky

It’s obvious that our culture is not built on love. We see proof every day of what miseries are created by individual narrow self interest codified into social customs. The “way things are” in the individual consciousness is expressed by the collective as law. Rules created for the general welfare are twisted and routinely violated by humans intent on beating the system for personal advantage. Until an aggregate preponderance of individuals with evolved consciousness appear in our midst, no system, no matter how intelligently constructed, can hold.

Our present situation is dramatic exactly because those people most motivated to act are those who fear losing their power to exploit. Kind hearted people are less sure of themselves when it comes to taking action and speaking out. At least it seems so. Maybe that’s changing. If Jodorowsky is right, what we’re seeing is panic on the part of those who fear a love-based system will steal their advantages. They have always maintained those advantages by obfuscation and lies, but maybe those tricks are losing their effectiveness.

We’re used to seeing travesties of justice everywhere. We’re proud of our freedom to pursue personal ambitions to amass riches, but we ignore those who are tossed to the wayside by our unquestioned principles, as if those poor souls are victims of natural laws nobody can change. As increasing numbers of human beings succumb to these “natural laws” the more obvious our cruelty and ignorance become to us. That may be the alchemy we need for an advance in consciousness, but we can expect resistance.

Uncomfortable questions will be asked by young people who can’t imagine a future in a society built on personal ambitions because it favors a relentless focus on material accumulation, not sharing of resources, certainly not caring for life wherever it manifests.

What is needed now is caring about the general welfare of the whole. That kind of consciousness has to become common. The world needs it to become how humans think and feel, both individually and universally. Are we on the cusp of this kind of humanity? If we’re not, we’re in more trouble than we can handle.
