Toxicity to Transformation: The Role of Illness in Transforming Human Consciousness
Toxicity to Transformation: The Role of Illness in Transforming Human Consciousness Norma Gentile
Will we shift our focus from adoring authority (profane masculine) to honoring the sacredness in the world? Sometimes spirit hides clues in obvious places. Consider that “corona” means a luminous discharge of particles (such as the Sun’s corona). A corona is also a crown, a symbol of authority. What if the coronavirus represents a radical shift in human consciousness? What if its appearance is an opportunity to replace the worship of human crowns with the spiritual crown that encircles all humanity?
“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” This comment attributed to Albert Einstein directly addresses this situation. Humanity is attempting to solve, out of panic, a situation brought about by decades of decisions made out of fear and panic. What is the larger issue? Is it environmental destruction, potential cataclysmic societal upheaval, or emotional turmoil? No, these are all results. The larger issue is lodged deep within human consciousness.
The solution is not found in external “fixes,” but in internal reconnection. This is a process of transformation, not resolution. As a child, I was rewarded for solving problems quickly and according to society’s expectations. As an adult, I see our society’s pattern of emphasizing quick solutions. Relieving pain with an instant, short-term solution rather than making a considered decision that brings about slow but sure transformation is explained away as being human nature.
