Humanity Awareness

Whereas there are many individuals around the world that are beginning to embrace this worldview, there are no nations operating from this worldview. There are however some nations that are exploring policies that align with the worldview of Humanity Awareness.

The central idea in the worldview of Humanity Awareness is to support full human self-expression. In Humanity Awareness we recognise that we are all members of the human race – we identify with humanity. Not only are there no ethnic, religious or gender divisions in Humanity Awareness, there are also no territorial boundaries. Our home is the Earth. We are transnational and we are global.

In the worldview of Humanity Awareness, the approach to solving problems is holistic and systemic. We get involved in system-wide changes. We are not blinkered by our beliefs, as people are in the preceding worldviews, we seek answers to the questions that are facing humanity through deep dialogue, intuitive insights and processes that invite our collective intelligence – processes that involve all concerned parties and align with our universal values.

In addition to improving social welfare, Humanity Awareness also focuses on psychological welfare. Whereas social welfare solved the problems associated with meeting people’s deficiency needs, psychological welfare solves the problems associated with meeting people’s growth needs – moving through and beyond the individuating stage of psychological development to the self-actualizing stage of psychological development.

Instead of measuring happiness, the focus now is on measuring well-being.  Well-being is a more important indicator than happiness: well-being is the feeling you get when you satisfy the needs of the stage of psychological development you are at. Other measures of human progress in the worldview of Humanity Awareness will focus on improving empathy, kindness and compassion and decreasing suicide and homicide rates.

Unlike previous worldviews, the worldview of Humanity Awareness recognises and appreciates the ‘verticality’ of societal development – it understands the evolutionary perspective. People operating from this world understand that people at different stages of psychological development have different needs and can operate from different worldviews. People operating from the earlier worldviews are unable to do this because they look at the world only through the myopic belief structures of their own worldviews. They live in societal flatland – they can only interpret and judge what is going on from the beliefs of their worldview. People operating from the worldview of Humanity Awareness see other worldviews not through the lens of competing beliefs structures but through the lens of competing value priorities.

In the worldview of Humanity Awareness, the evolution of human consciousness is seen as a work in progress. Chaos and change are accepted as the natural order of things. The difficulties that people face are regarded as opportunities for learning, rather than problems to be solved.

People operating from the worldview of Humanity Awareness may experience anxieties about the future, but they are not fearful. They trust in their collective intelligence and knowledge and their innate creativity to resolve all issues.

Respect and recognition in Humanity Awareness is earned; it is not dependent on power, authority or wealth; leadership is situational – it is based on a person’s level of competence and creativity.

Justice in Humanity Awareness recognizes that people make mistakes due to their childhood conditioning. Rehabilitation is handled though psycho-therapeutic support (the reprogramming of our limiting beliefs and Early Maladaptive Schema) and self-knowledge – understanding your true nature and purpose in life.

In Humanity Awareness we find a focus on values-based education, meditation and psychological growth. Children are taught how to, fully express their unique gifts and talents, connect with others in meaningful relationships, and contribute to the well-being of their community. They are taught how to be the best for the world, rather than how to be the best in the world.

Humanity Awareness heralds a new form of democracy; not dominated by power, authority and status hungry elites, but by citizens working together collaboratively to find solutions which focus on the good of the whole. Different age groups are represented in governance structures. Decision-making is decentralised to the appropriate regional or local level.

To tackle issues such as the pollution of the global commons, global warming and international crime, a new and improved global governance structures are developed based on national representation at a regional level, and regional representation at a global level. The structure and decision-making in the United Nations are completely overhauled.

Health and healing in the worldview of Humanity Awareness focuses on ego-soul alignment. The body is seen as an energy field – the vehicle of the soul in the material dimension of existence. When the energy field is healthy – aligned with the motivations of the soul – the body is healthy, when it is not, it gets sick. Health is improved by releasing anxiety and fear and embracing love and joy.
