Deepak Quotes

We can either allow our past to keep interfering with our optimal expression of love and happiness, or we can move beyond our past with renewed passion for life.

Collective Consciousness and Eruptions of Violence

Category:  Ask Deepak


If it’s the collective consciousness that is getting played out in the world through events such as the Newtown shooting incident that took the lives of 20 innocent children, is our collective consciousness so vindictive and violent? In the last decade I have witnessed the surge in the number of people getting involved in evolutionary thought process, thanks to the internet and social media, but despite all this if our collective consciousness is violent and wants to kill each other, what's the solution and how do we go about creating the change?


The tragic loss of life we witnessed in the Newtown killing or in any mass killing can’t be fully explained or fathomed through the concept of collective consciousness, nor is it even appropriate. Such horrific events compel us to work through the grief and sorrow in their own cases.

If one seeks a more generalized understanding of what these type of violent incidents might indicate for a evolving society, I can offer a few comments. When a group or society undergoes a major shift from one state to another, it doesn’t happen in a smooth gradual transition. It displays unstable and in some ways chaotic behavior until it shifts into the new state. This phenomenon of phase transitions is seen in other physical and biological systems as well. So even as world consciousness is moving inexorably toward a more enlightened, compassionate behavior, there can these terrible eruptions of violence from the collective unconscious as it purifies out these horrific elements. It’s not that society as a whole is violent and wants to kill each other; it’s that as we take steps to move to a more healthy, peaceful society, the violent tendencies erupt to the surface like boils on the skin as the body tries to heal itself.

  • Perhaps it isn't our colletive consciousness that is playing out...but our collective unconsciousness. Our shadow material projected out onto the world, so that some, who are vulnerable to recieving it, will act it out for us. These kinds of deals are made under the table. But it isn't because we are unconsciously evil--it's because we are unconscious--repressing stuff that needs to be looked at, owned and used, rather than projected outward.

    The American Institute of Holistic Theology // 2013-01-09 11:21:32 // //
  • I hope that is the answer ... It seems so senseless - where ever we look the world is acting crazy there is unrest everywhere.. So hard to have faith in God when stuff like this happens

  • Yes before there is total shift in consciousness from body consciousness (or kaliyug) to soul consciousness(satyug) this purification process will keep on happening and it will reach to extreme just before there is total shift. Also all souls will have to settle their karmic account before they leave body.It is just like climax of the TVserial in which last episod shows end of story of each charector in the serial. So wait peacefulblissful satyug is coming ....

  • I feel this applies well to harsh individual life one is innocent of unstable and erratic behavior during times of difficult change, it's partly how we process..we'd do we'll to remember this and put ourselves in the shoes of others to feel compassion and empathy rather than fanning an already angry flame.

  • If we make an empowered choice in our own heart/mind to respond to these chaotic & violent events with forgiveness, compassion & loving kindness, then this plants positive karmic seeds within our consciousness (individually & collectively) & creates a stronger vibration to move a towards a world where these karmic seeds mature and ripen to become our reality...a world where we experience peace & kindness in the heart/mind of all living beings...

  • We also must rememer that just as how we place attention to certain horrific events that take place around the planet everyday, millions of amazing events between people that show an evolving of conscious happen on a daily basis. We get sucked into the medias definition of news and relevancy and fail to acknowledge the greatness that take place around us.

  • Well i really will love to bealeve on that but unfortunaly dnt i think in this world is good very good people but badness and bad people exist as a result of cultural process probably now many people is open their eyes into a new conciousness and is realising their soul and spirituallity and compasive world but unfurtunally many people still far away from that something is improving but will take time because the damage in many minds and souls is all ready made it.

  • WOW!!!

    Nina Marin // 2013-01-06 17:48:10 // //
  • @DinaBELO, your husband`s parents are a different culture than you, and they feel threatened by your marriage, or they feel that this is the way it should be. Maybe his mother was treated like this by her inlaws and they don`t know any better. There is probably nothing you can change about them, but you can be at peace in your feelings towards them. If your husband insists on respect they will most likely vilify you for coming between them, even though the Bible says a man must leave his parents and cleave to his wife. Think of how sad they must be to not relate to you as you deserve, how narrow and limited their consciousness! Pity them for it, and just try to minimize the exposure you have to them. Be polite and sweet to them. If you can talk with your husband about the situation and let him try to come up with a solution because he knows them better than you do, then good. If not just try to get out. Some things your husband can do include that if they tell you to do something he can tell you not to do it or to do it in a different way than they asked. This will show them that you are his and that he is the head of his own household, they can ask your assistance but not demand your slavery.

  • There's no such thing as "right" or "wrong", "good" or "bad", instead, it's a matter of "sickness" or "health"... This problem of violence and agression cannot be reduced to fire arms selling. You have to think: "what kind of horrific experiences do this individuals had to live to react like that?". What you give is what you get. And I do think collective consciousness is all about health, peace, and wellbeing. However, not all of us are connected to that. There are millions of individuals who have suffer violence, abandonment, pyshical and psychological agressions since they where born. This problem needs to be adressed from it's roots: education sistems, religions, FAMILY values and education... We need to understand theese individuals are not "bad" or "evil" people, THEY ARE SICK people. And we need to understand what was that sickened them in the first place in order to erradicate violent responces towards society.

  • We as humans are intelligent and can think. Earth was formed and so did humans. As we can think, we are trying to make sense of everything and anything around us. The reality is that we are just born, we live and we die... and a part of this cosmos. Everything else is derived theories or perceived theories... it might be through rishis like Ramana maharishi etc.

  • eath well, meditate, cear your homes and energy-bodies, do qi-gon or yoga or whatever ceeps you strong-EVERY DAY. We have to welcome the new higher concusness and our magic power, with becomming the magick,powerfull creatures we really are...Remember this dark viruses seeks itself to where the light is-AND WE ARE SHINING BRIGHT. so we have to be smart to trick it. All the legends, and stories of magick is telling us,all the time, how to fight..usually its with a good heart. its with protection, light,and to just let the darkness fall into its own traps!

  • Love the dialogue surrounding these questions. Chopra's question is beautifully designed to invite "higher thinking" -- we are disciples in training -- as we raise our awareness, individually and collectively, to reach for answers that lie beyond our immediate and very conscious thinking. I'm grateful for that. Come to

  • there are paralell "realeties" existing at the same time, but they all effect each other, sort of like in the serie "once upon a time"...right now an energetic invasion of creatures,functioning and similar to viruses-energetic viruses, are disturbing our its verry important that we do what we can to "clean" oure energy bodies, beacuse we are very exposed at the moment-beacuse of the allways "clean" and protect your bodys, take help from earth and cosmic energy, and send this darkness back to where it came from!!

  • Wow -- another great question! Takes some contemplation. But off the cuff, I think of Robert A. Johnson's book, "Owning Your Own Shadow." And others such as Jeremy Taylor (Living Labyrinth) that support the motion that there is no collective solution only healed individuals. Confusing when you think that the culture that produces so much violence is serving ego needs and letting the weaker ones bear the brunt of self-serving dynamics.

  • This leaves me thinking the collective consciousness is neither good or bad. I think we get whatever we get by chance. It does not feel good when we know that some people (and some animals are born deformed or have mental deficiencies from the start). If God is really looking after us would he not make us all perfect? Looking at this another way, he is giving us a chance to make things better at least in some ways.

  • We need to respond to events like this with love. Overwhelming love to contrdict and transmute the energy involved. I was personally moved by the response in India to the gang rape that occurred. 600 guitarists united in a pavillion to do a tribute to the victims singing and playing in unison to John Lennon song. Overwhelming love was behind this action. At each step of the way in my opinion outweighing a negative with an overwhelming positive helps to rebalance the collective conciousness. Despite the lack of news coverage of the positive responses they exist and are neccessary.

  • There was a post not long ago about the young angels from Newtown. The gist was that they were "Masters" who had been among us to teach something very valuable and that their sacrifice was "great". If we are spiritual beings having a human experience, these Masters are to be held in love and honor. Mankind is now realizing that through bonding in dark days, we infuse it with light so that it is no more........

  • I appreciate this posting ... and sometimes, the collective consciousness via each one of us needs to take some practical steps to prevent such mass killings from ever taking place again. Michael Moore's "Bowling For Columbine" offers great insight and informational tools that we can use to collectively demand more stringent controls on weapons of violence (gun control). This is no mystery. When American tax payers take responsibility for where there tax dollars go, how they are used, and then speak loudly and insistently to those we place in power, only then will "collective change" begin to evolve with our consciousness.

  • Firstly I would like to send my deepest sympathy to all those affected by the Connecticut shootings and no words could express my feelings about it! ♥ I do agree that violence need to be addressed however I do believe that focus must be given at the current ‘violence’ within our Governments. How can we say that what Government officials adhere to is any different from the shootings taking place? Yes, the media, TV, films, video games do brainwash the young people of today on a daily basis with horrific scenes of violence and killing. But how can we say that governments do not? How can we say that the wars within the worlds, sending troops to fight for our countries, the massacres of thousands of innocent children, women and men, young troops included is any different to what we have recently horrifically seen?? Is there a difference? Someone told me that ‘yes, but the shootings that killed these innocent children and teachers’ had no right no permission to do so!’ And yes I do agree, but just because PM’s have given permission through the army and troops, does that make it acceptable? Just because PM’s don’t personally pull the trigger does it make it OK? And as touching as it was for Mr. Obama to show a tear on the day of the shooting- and please don’t feel I didn’t feel the genuineness of this- what about the daily massacres taken place? Is it not a contradiction for laws to change in relation to banning guns and firearms, when the person you will be implementing this continues the wars of self destruction? Is it not about each and everyone’s ‘internal wars, and violence based on fear’ externalised and glorified for the protection and good of the country; and are governments any different to the damaged individuals who commit such horrific and atrocious crimes? And should change not come from our Governments and change their attitude that promotes ‘killing is OK’ as long as it’s done in my terms? I do hope that this change will take place, especially as so much has been said about this Universal Shift in consciousness for the good of humanity, the people, our Children of tomorrow! Love and Peace :)

  • When I see in America for at least the last 20 or 30 years a move to violence by video games, so called reality tv. We are teaching our society hate and not to trust. Look at all the bullying ! It is in every school so I think the collective consciousness In the USA would be something to consider.

  • My transition to consciousness was not easy at all! Infact I thought for years I had developed an ocd and depressive disorder which I did axtually but because of an increase in sensitivity previous exisiting disorders were being amplified by 10. I felt at times I was just going nuts. Thank god I wasn't, it was the other way around, I was too sane. You cant be conscious amd insane at the same time. I still at times struggle with it tho.
