Atlantis and the myth about it used to have a magical effect on me. It allowed me to go into a dream state that I used as mental landing pad into my imagination: there is a whole world out there of which I know nothing of. Was it just a story, was it real? I recall when the love & light community was considering humans as star seeds, and everyone chose a favourite extraterrestrial they wanted to be connected with, I wanted to be “from” Atlantis. Today, I realise that wanting to be ‘something’ else than human is an indication of the mess we humans have created of life on earth. A place that is becoming less and less inhabitable because of the accumulation of physical evidence that self-interest is destructive, and our existence in this way futile and finite.
To hear the real story of Atlantis from an Atlantean made me realise the illusion we live today.
When I listened to the interview: Atlantis – the untold story, I realised that my previous mystification of Atlantis is the escape we all exist within, to suspend the fear of not knowing who we are or where we came from, an escape mechanism we have so thoroughly accepted to exist as our culture. We use this mechanism to give ourselves the license to conjure up anything we want. “Hey, we just don’t know any better”. The Atlantean who spoke through Sunette was clearly not feeding my imagination anymore. The being was showing us in its own words that there are other things that exist as reality – beyond our imagination, and that we have little or no clue of what that really is: Growth of self through equality and oneness.
Atlanteans had a concrete grasp on maintaining oneness with each other. It was in their interest to maintain this oneness because it was in the interest of all – basic common sense! When the conditions for one are unacceptable then sooner or later this will be the case for all. For example: if we were to drop colour into a bucket of clear water, the water would become coloured throughout, the drop would not just stay in one corner, refusing to acknowledge that it is in the same bucket with all the other water and therefore not mix. The more colour we add to the water in the bucket, the more intense the colour becomes. Take this as an analogy, humans are made up from 99% water.
Our existence is self-contradictory. One the one hand we are clueless of our beginnings, our purpose, if there is one; or why we live the way we do. On the other hand, the one thing we know for fact is where we are going because we actually create it physically in the world. This is the only reliable measure we have. Yet we make no use of it – we either deny the physical changes of earth, or we claim no participation. Here we miss exactly what it is we do in essence, and that which we claim to be our culture. We draw on activities that pursue illusion. We pursue that which is not real, not here in the physical world but we make it either so in our minds, or with physical means that can convince the mind and our feelings that the illusion is real.
From entertainment, such as the making of film, the writing of novels, the playing of games, to spirituality, rituals, and love & light celebrations – we persistently chase the illusionary. How can we not see this? It is so blatant in the world we live in – our population is largely starving, species are going extinct, we torture and massacre ourselves and all living creatures around us. Yet, the few that have a good life believe that the colour (referring to the water example mentioned above) will never reach them. Nevertheless, the evidence is found among those as well: steadily increasing numbers of sicknesses and the consumption of pharmaceutical products – that are supposed to hold up a sick body in a sick world.
My conclusion after having listened to the Atlantean is this:
The pursuit of illusion in all its forms, resulting from the starting point of denial that we are held together by one place (earth) and by the same (earth) materials, diminishes life until non-existence is reached.
The pursuit of equality in all its forms, resulting from the starting point of acknowledgement that we are rooted and birthed from one place, supported by the same materials encourages infinite growth and the flourishing of all life.
My choice is clear.
