Healing the Group Mind
What I propose may take a bit of explaining (and may likely not be everyone's cup of tea), so please bear with me.
There are two levels at which I perceive we have the power to heal this "Deeper Wound". The first is at the individual, personal level of treating our selves and one another with respect and loving kindness.
The second level pertains to the human group-mind. This is the more difficult aspect of the work of healing. I wander this realm of our group-mind frequently and it is often a very disturbing realm. For the most part it suffers from a lack of coherent structure. It is in an adolescent stage and most often acts with a mob psychology. It rapidly swings from one extreme to another and finds no center upon which to anchor.
Like a teenager, it is torn between two essential poles. One is its assertion of its own, barely formed, independent individuality, and the other is its undeniable attachment to, and dependence upon, its parent (the whole). This is a natural stage in the evolution of our human consciousness, but it is also a very dangerous and delicate stage.
What I propose, and have been working to accomplish myself, is that we introduce a known structure into the group-mind that will provide it the anchor it so desperately needs for its survival. The structure I have been working with is that of the kabbalistic Tree of Life, but any similar structure will suffice. Eventually, the group-mind will evolve any introduced structure until it meets the needs of the emerging, integrated group-mind. The introduction of a specific structure will act as a seed for this newer, emergent structure.
So, one does not need to employ the same structure as I employ in order to participate in what I am proposing.
Here is the technique I propose:
Sit comfortably or lie down and entirely relax your body and mind. Close your eyes and imagine a great sphere, suspended in space. Let the human group-mind fill this sphere. Now enter the sphere and take a moment to perceive the state of the group-mind as it exists presently.
From your position within the sphere of the group-mind, begin building the structure you have chosen to work with. Construct it from Light-substance and let it fill the sphere. Be certain that your structure is connected to the highest source of Light and that it is grounded in the densest level of physicality. Let the Light pour continuously into this structure.
Once your structure of Light has become stable, visualize the surrounding matter of the group-mind adhering to it. Let your structure become the anchor to which the group-mind attaches itself.
Hold this visualization for as long as it suits you. When you feel complete, return slowly to your normal state of awareness.
Upon your return to normalcy, take a moment to remember the structure you have imposed upon the group-mind and try to bring this structure with you as you proceed with other activities. Keep this structure in your heart and express it through your actions. Return to the visualization work as often as it suits you to do so.
I hope you will join me in this work.
My best to you,
