The degree of evolution in individual and social life
determines the expression of life in different physical
actions, skills, sexual interactions, poetic perceptions
and expressions, scientific and technological
development, artistic feats, thinking and formulation
of ideology, leadership and decision making,
administrative and legal frameworks and so on!
At different stages of development in individual life
and social life, the meaning of various concepts such
as “god”, “freedom”, “revolution” change.
The individual pursuits, activities and social struggles,
revolve around preying for survival, procreation,
perpetuation of species, rearing of offspring,
conquering another tribe, establishing autocratic rule,
establishing intellectual technological, economic,
social and political supremacy, establishing religious
supremacy and so on.
Conversely, they may revolve around defending one’s
individual life, one’s tribe, economy, culture, religion
and people in general. They may also revolve around
annihilation of exploitation, arousing mass
consciousness, arousing social commitment,
establishing equality of opportunity, uniting and
reestablishing a particular religion and so on.
The methodologies may include right from guerilla
and open bloody wars to public education, public
awakening, non-cooperation and various other
modalities of protests.
If one tries to find a common factor in all these
phenomena, then one would notice that the world is
moving towards growing sense of global unity, (by
rising above all kinds of fanaticism, pettiness,
superficiality, prejudices and biases) greater efforts
towards international laws and conventions of
universal benevolence, implementation of these laws
in the fields of education, health, industry etc, so that
the individuals and people in turn, enter into the
center of the cosmic consciousness. The trans-
temporal light enlightens and invigorates people
perceptibly and convincingly; leading to increasing
orientation of lives in this direction, which may be
called cosmic enlightenment or cosmic yoga.
