YOU HAVE THE FORCE OF THE CHOICE
Each of the group beliefs direct a certain degree of our energy in an act of creation, and thus has a direct consequence upon ourselves.
When we share a belief with other groups, we take part in the physical and energetical events created by these groups. This is the symbolic and creative expression of the sacred truth at this level: "All is one."
The negative part is that the individualities involved in a negative group of action rarely accept their responsibility and their personal role in the action.
The unwritten laws of the group claim that the leaders of the group should take on the responsibility, not the followers.
Owing to this "power" of the beliefs, be they good or bad, it is difficult to be in harmony with the group all the time. We are taught to make the choices that meet the group's approval, and to adopt the same attitudes and social manners.
Symbolically, this adaptation reflects the union of the individual will with the will of the entire group. It is a powerful feeling of belonging to a family or a group in which there is a deep harmony on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Such a union gives us power as long as we continue to make choices according to the general tendencies of the group. In the same time, we have an inner tendency to explore our own creative abilities, to develop our inner individual force.
This desire is behind all our attempts of becoming "conscious". The universal human travel towards perfection requires that we become aware of our power and that we find the best suitable way of using this power.
Becoming aware of the responsibility hiding behind a choice represents the essence of this travel.
Considering the things from this perspective, the evaluation of our personal beliefs and the separation of those that no longer sustain our spiritual evolution is an extreme challenge, and very painful as well.
Change is the very nature of life. It is the only constant of life. Inner and outer change happens all the time. Inner transformation infers giving up to certain beliefs and reinforcing others.
The first beliefs we need to analyze are the beliefs of the group we belong to. They were formed in a great span of time and are crucial. Our spiritual growth follows the structure of our energetical system.
The evaluation of our beliefs is a spiritual necessity. The moments of crisis in our lives underline the fact that we need to free ourselves from those beliefs that no longer sustain our spiritual development.
These points in which we need to choose between evolving and stagnating are our foremost trials. Each new crossroad means entering a new cycle of change, and change inevitably means leaving that which is familiar and known and heading for a new stage of our lives.
The great majority of people get stuck in between two worlds: one that they need to break free from and the other in which they are afraid to step.
We wish to become more conscious, but in the same time this requires becoming responsible or ourselves - for our health, career, attitudes, thoughts. Once we accept this fact, we will never be able to avoid the consequences of our personal choices.
BEYOND THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE
The energetical predominance at this level is the sign of an excessive preoccupation of not getting hurt by the others.
The person feels more and more fear of being attacked, or on the contrary, has a strong tendency of attacking others, according to the polarity on which this imbalance manifests itself.
The fear involved here is often intense, irrational, associated to the types hunter-hunted. The primitive societies preoccupied mainly with hunting, in which the main issue was the survival in their natural environment reflect the predominance of the unilateral activation of Muladhara chakra.
Moreover, this activation is reflected in all social circumstances in which the law is temporarily suspended or destroyed or, on the contrary, it is applied excessively and rigidly.
The deities corresponding to Muladhara chakra are Brahma and Dakini and the symbolic animal is the elephant.
