Conflict or Crisis - A universal mechanism for the emergence into higher states of consciousness.
Let us offer a perspective into the benefits of conflict or crisis within an individual’s earthly experience.
Throughout history there is evidence of this phenomena and the profound impact it has had on the evolutionary path of humanity. We can observe this phenomenon by examining the unfoldment of an individual, country, nation, or this planet. However, let us place our focus upon the individual and how we can transform conflict or crisis into beauty and harmony and emerge into a higher state of consciousness. This can be accomplished by the study of the seven Rays pouring forth upon the earthly plane and each personality’s connection to these Rays. Additional approaches precipitated by the personality, as outlined below, can assist in this process as well.
One of the predominate Rays that is now impacting all aspects of the earthly experience, from the lowest forms found in nature to its highest, is the fourth Ray of Harmony and Beauty through Conflict. Friedrich Nietzsche provides an interesting quote that summarizes this profound Ray and its qualities. “Out of chaos comes order”. Additionally, he is quoted as saying, “You must carry a chaos inside you to give birth to a dancing star”.
At the early onset of conflict or crisis there are signs given that indicate change is in the near future. Should the personality be cognizant of these indicators, resolution can be accomplished through harmony. However, should these signs be left unattended, conflict or crisis swings into action and there is a significant portion of tension created within the personalities experience. This tension can be the catalyst or springboard into a higher state of consciousness or the complete collapse of a personality’s earthly beliefs. Both are beneficial and ultimately lead to a new experience that provides the perfect opportunity for growth.
As the personality experiences the tension within the conflict or crisis, it has the option of releasing its attachment to the situation and its outcome and working to resolve the discordant energies that are inherent. If not resolved in the initial stages, there is the opportunity that the personality will, in fact, create a karmic energetic that at some point, during the life stream, must be cleared. They KEY to the resolution of these events is non-attachment and divine dispassion.
When there are multiple conflicts or crisis, during a personality’s life, left unattended it can develop into what is often referred to as the “Dark Night of the Soul”.
