Something we should be aware of in ourselves and in others: the upcoming forms of the human psyche expressing its inner turmoils in the outer world as we evolve, and how we can be proactive about the inestimable havoc it is already wreaking.
As humans continue to evolve consciousness, there are bound to be some profound changes in intellect. Along with the glory of humans developing amazing new insights and abilities, we will also see the darker sides come to the light: people’s inner turmoil and pain. This is especially true for the information kept in the unconscious.
Though this is not anything new, given the current variables of our world there are surely new effects to come of it. We should heed attention to this, in others and especially in ourselves, as people’s inner turmoils continue to grow and express themselves in new ways in the outer world.
For this reason, there is a call now more than ever for us to heed attention to our own mental health, our own neuroses, our own internal conflicts, and our own demons.
This has been the advice of many remarkable psychologists in the past, and it is relevant now more than ever as we continue to expand awareness of ourselves and the world around us.
The energy of the mind grows in extraordinary ways: a lot of power awaits us in the psyche. In the words of Carl Jung: “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
We have all seen, in others or ourselves, the way inner turmoil can destroy us, the people around us, opportunities, peace, etc.
Let us make the effort to put the kind of work into ourselves we need and deserve, though it is challenging to the core.
I don’t mean this to be prophetic; it is something I just strongly feel as I observe the energy in motion around us. The problems in our world are reflections of individuals and their inner states: to work towards solutions in the outer world it truly starts with people healing and developing themselves on an internal level.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious…. There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” – Carl Jung
