NOTE: I'm quoting the whole speech on "higher awareness" to just use a name. I propose THE WHIP AND THE TREAT with the beast. See at bottom...

My apologies but I could not take these comments as the final conclusion but only the end of the old ways - opening only to a new way/level of perception. Current/old way is clearly described in short below, thanks to Thomas's excellent perception skills. If we are involved in the game we will remain gamblers, if we perceive from outside the game we can create something beyond playing ie it will be for true living in peace and harmony. Now for some indication of the new way to look at people.
Let me call this Le Banane Evolution !
A> Human being is created higher than angels ie a perceptive conscious being as such unless we perceive at this level the real truth about anything cannot be discovered (not mental or physical perception) - it provides a bird's eye view from each one human being having the potential to see from one's inner self as micro creator's point of view. In this way all us a the same - divine conscious beings given different natures to conceive and achive
B> The human nature part of us is like being provided tools to conceive from our inner perception. The more we share inner perception and perceive the clear picture of our own and share with others together, the mental conception will be how to achieve the perception. The differences in nature promote creativity in self expression.
- Perception at this level is at a nature based human being - looking at other nature based human beings that share common perception at mental/physical levels - small world and fragmented
C> Achievement ie start to take steps to work towards a clearly perceived and conceived picture, is easy once each one can perceive and conceive... and each does their bit creatively in different ways independently for the purpose to relate interdependently - only then we can be part of something greater than individual our selves.
- Conception for nature level as a nature based human is materialising the perception (premature and experimental and for the purpose of survival and if this becomes successful, changes to ruling in the jungle.
....... In nature consciousness there is and E> which means achieve... after materialising the premature concept, winning to keep enhancing and changing it to strengthening it is achievement (short lasting as nature outgrows... so we have to keep running after more and more advancement to catch up before problems arise or when problems are created to keep solving).
The current/old way we are all at nature conscious level hence worse than animals (because we have this little piece of meat called the brain causing protecting iteself at the excuse of being a protector of our body and the others... ) when this is the case we live in a jungle reality and thus survival of the fittest and highest mental capacity is the key weapon used to manipulate perception and realities are shown as per the will of the fittest few. In the new way - the simpler the person (like a child) one can see true sense and question to understand the truth behind any reality - asking the right question to one self provides the answer from the highest conciousness to our inner being - and we become free from the mental/emotional chains tying us up into true feelings and inspiration from the very core of our hearts and soul and connect with each other. For this each one needs to question the real purpose for one's existence and life on this planet for a consciousness was not born and thus does not die, the body was born and thus dies, giving the consiousness the opportunity to create what is sometimes called heaven on earth - I would call it a personal journey back to being our true selves is the real and only step if for each to have self respect for oneself for what one is, has been always but not known, and get to know - so that we can enjoin each other to truth with real self respect (not in respect of mind of body or wealth) and dignity of each one being potential creators in our right with each one given a dignified position in being the centre of our own universe - and interacting in the same reality as the planets and stars do in the universe.
With my deepest feelings of true love I pray we are at a cross road point and giving up point to the mental battles each one carries within so we can give up - even for a split second to give ourselves the opportunity to hear our true self speak to us. To remember who you are is very simple, it is who have always been - as a child, growing up and even now... you know it but cannot define it (whatever can be defined is not you) - to be or not to be is the real first question, all subsequent questions for oneself relate to the answer we give to ourselves to this core question - relate to our selves from who we are (non definable) or relate to ourselves from what we have made ourselves believe who we are (definable ie nature based, labelled and boxed in the mental world). Time to set ourselves free by knowing this simple truth...
Very enlightening indeed, almost sounds like the Little Prince. I wished it became true but it's unlikely that the evil in man (power hunger, greed, the lie) can change just by wishing good or by having the right models, namely Jesus, Buddha or Gandhi. We haven't changed that much in the last 2000 years, even though we now have Christianism, Buddhism or whatever...
The way I see it: I see a beast (the lion, the dinosaur) that's not totally bad, but who must be tamed. He prevents CHANGE at all cost. You face him with the word "evolve" (same word you use) and he roars at you threateningly. He's stuck in the past and doesn't want to hear anything new, not justice, not humanism, not new energetic technologies, just the same old HUNGRY BEAST.
What do we do? The same thing we do with any beast that needs to be tamed: THE WHIP AND THE TREAT. The whip is boycott, and the treat, well, the treat is banana, which I understand he can digest.
(You may also think of the treat as the fact that he's being saved from self-destruction)
So that's the way it was in the good old-fashioned days of the Jurassic...
EVOLVE OR ELSE!
Once upon a time lived a race of dinosaurs whose violence and appetite alarmed everybody... One day a Little Ant, tired of feeling stepped upon, and worried about her cooperative enterprise, came up to the Americanus Raptor--the biggest dinosaur of them all--and asked: "Why you eat and eat everything in your path? Why don't you slim down? Why can't we little animals at least have our own way?" Then the dinosaur, blowing the Little Ant away, shouted: "Bigger is better, so get lost!"
The Little Ant, then, gathered the whole cooperative and said: "Comrades, our world is being threatened by the dinosaurs, so..." And at that precise moment the Earth was hit by a big ball of fire, destroying all but the small animals...
