The clarity with which a high order of awareness influencing the structures of this planet can be observed is as practically manifest as the patterns of international flight paths, or the fiber of the internet. As you may observe- when we map the internet it literately starts to look like a brain.
Consider that with common telephone technology we've allowed many sound waves to spawn distant sound waves at the speed of light, practically ( but not literately ) enabling sound waves to travel at light speed ( and control their pathways, even! )
So it's fair to ask, will a planetary order, informed by communication networks, imply global peace? An intelligent meta system that can organize willing sub-systems into a transcending pattern is as common a concept of the national states. If there were no 'United States' who knows is California might have had bloody wars with Texas over ideology and resources... but the American flag keeps them together as kin- even if they don't like each other... they can't kill their own family! In this case, a national symbol subdues the conflict.
In a similar spirit, I see a global commonality being born of Earth. A symbol of unity is gradually overtaking prejudice, at least from what I can observe where I live, which is breeding prosperity through symbiosis which swiftly overtakes the 'destroyer' paradigm.
Once the power-spell of senseless war has ended for the mean-time, the fruits of respect will naturally be the abundance this world already provides.
I wonder- how will one nation declare war upon another when millions of their citizens are in direct contact with each other through the light of global information?
Yet this question is rhetorical in perspective to the spirit's enlightenment- so long as power is exerted within the structure, the infinite wisdom of the Tao ( flow ) is interrupted by immature consciousness under the spell of maya, and the composing cells in the 'becoming' system will also fall under potentially aligning patterns of illusion through which large crystal matrixes of collective delusion are spawned...
...and this is the very stage upon which the drama of manifestation is born.
It is not possible that somebody's "dharma" be automatically upgraded by external conditions- for all that manifests, short of the phenomenon at the root of novelty itself, is grossly cyclical. ( Thus all form & phenomenon is an expression of dharma / spirit within the formless crystal matrix of 'manifest reality', dancing with it's own shadow )
Only through cultivating the will power of our one and only 'divine spirit' can the subtle paths be navigated to realize an eternal relationship with god, which altogether transcends this plane which is experiencing the paradigm shift. ( So what are the causal and astral implications of the shift [?] )
Once the holy thread has been cultivated to be steadfast in all conditions, all contention naturally melts fearlessly into the pure light of the awareness in which it was formed and spirit fades out of the world of volitions to balance infinite possibility.
One way by which the spirit enters and takes reigns of the [subtle and gross] bodies is though the practice of insightful non-reaction. [ via. Vipassana ]
But where does it lead? There is no end to the churning of samsara so long as the wheels of novelty continue to cycle manifestation. Yet samsara only exists as a delusion within the structure of our own not-inhernatly-existant souls- so true peace is a perception which is even at peace with non-peace.
To face suffering with transparent honestly and insight is to dissolve it's very root- which is 'shadow / ignorance'.
Armageddon is an archetype that will always remain so long as the end is feared. The more axis we begin to navigate, the farther away we stray from the highest mother and the stronger the draw of awareness will be outwards- this is the vortex of oscillation.
There is no end in these impermanent chambers of novelty we call this universe and so deep as our dependence lies in any illusion of a plateau in it's pattern, our peace will be unsettled when it again shifts in any way unexpected.
To say it another way- so long as our heart's peace is dependent on external conditions the peace is as impermanent as the conditions upon which it balances... and as you may have observed, this world is wildly impermanent.
So as 'higher' flows of awareness organizes form into into 'higher' patterns- the entire system becomes more volatile. For instance, if the system in any way collapsed, the natural result (short of love) would be mayhem. [ as demonstrated by hurricane katrina ]
And yet the more we love, the less we'll even have to worry about a nasty Armageddon.
As form balances upon the conditions of it's composing manifestation... and as all form is impermanent- a 'higher' form is subject to more conditions, and thus is more impermanent (as demonstrated by the emotional states of a human when compared to the minerals which manifest that human) The minerals are in this case in much more of a stabilized state.
And the lower the form is, the more it's global conditions are at the mercy of the 'higher' ... thus a balanced way to transcend the polarity of 'higher'/'form' and the 'lower'/'unborn' is the Middle Way.
To walk the centered path is to hyper-intelligently navigate all axis of oscillation into a state of perfect balance, causing all things to reflect within one seamless thread of awareness in which all is.
In this thread it is comprehended that all worlds are simultaneously existent, thus none inherently exist and so are engaged fearlessly.
In this state, all unformed possibilities are projected through an instance of the manifest (body)- it's astral / causal projection is experienced as an internal phenomenon of awareness.
Here, as all things continues to manifest as seen through their formless perfection- threads connecting all levels of the body-form with pure light spawn connections between even the gross manifest body and the most divine.
And as the divine vibration descends to the density of the bodies it is experienced as an ekstasis of electricity that flows in the nervous system - and this the yogis refer to as kundalini.
