Being is desirable because it is identical with Beauty, and Beauty is loved because it is Being. We ourselves possess Beauty when we are true to our Being ; ugliness is in going over to another order.PlotinusFor millennia, the respect for nature and the knowledge of its secrets were transmitted from generation to generation, which insured for thousands of years the well being of our species and the preservation of our environment. Only recently our modern society has lost its way, giving birth to and perpetuating a system and a lifestyle that cause a psychological and physical imbalance resulting in an invalidating stress that invades the individual and radiates in the world at large. Continuous exposure to stress, tension and fatigue fueled by the fever and greed of modern society results in a mental and environmental pollution that destroys the inner harmony necessary to a healthy lifestyle for the individual, the environment and the planet.At a physical level, we, humanity, have shoved our way far into discovery and innovation, breaking technological boundaries in an incredible and unprecedented way but in what regards the level of our consciousness, the understanding of ourselves and of the relationships with each other, in what regards the understanding of life itself, we find ourselves steadily in precarious situations. Through his kinesiologic research, Dr. David R. Hawkins, renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, spiritual teacher and lecturer has discovered how to calibrate the levels of consciousness. Apathy, anger, fear, lust, are the emotional states in which most humans are caught and these are energetical levels of low calibration. According to Dr. Hawkins, love calibrates at a 500 level and approximately 78% of the worlds population calibrates below the 200 level. The level below 200 has a destructive capacity. Dr. David Hawkins describes that this majority would annihilate mankind if 22% of population would not calibrate above the 200 level. Using this discovery he explains the state of our world today. And he is saying that if a person is becoming self-aware, the level of consciousness can jump at high calibration levels during this lifetime.We are reaching nowhere faster and the dark spell of estrangement from ourselves and from natural spiritual laws lurks among us. The results of this estrangement came to the surface for all of us to see : social storm events, natural cataclysms and the environmental changes now appear to be at an unprecedented level globally.
