Why This Blog Now?

Why this blog now?

Because we, humanity, are now at a critical tipping point, a crossroads, where some crucial decisions have to be made. And if we, as aware and responsible individuals, collectively fail to make these decisions ourselves, then a small minority amongst us, whose motives most of us wouldn’t like at all, will eagerly try to decide our fate for us. And not surprisingly, it’ll be exclusively for their own worldly advantage.

That’s why this blog now.

So, what’s the choice?

The choice is ‘Wake up, grow up and start taking responsibility for the world we’ll be leaving for future generations OR carry on sleepwalking in this semi-hypnotic trance’ – in which case we’ll be herded like cattle into some kind of neo-feudal fascist future, run by a pathologically delusional minority of wannabe big time winners. Right now, the latter outcome appears to be increasingly likely, but is by no means a guaranteed certainty.

Yes, waking up to this kind of choice is difficult. And then following through with making decisions is also difficult.

So, the specific purpose of this blog is to make some powerful and empowering information as widely available as possible. The motivation is that this knowledge brings some much needed overview and insight into how we, humankind, have become such a dysfunctional species despite all our current technological ‘smartness’, and, crucially, how we can start to make our way out of this tangled mess.

That’s why this blog now.

Who’s it for, specifically?

It’s for whoever’s open to receiving some unfamiliar but timeless, basic knowledge about some of the big, deep questions that affect all our lives in greater and lesser ways. It’s for all who are prepared to venture beyond their familiar comfort zones, and to think ‘outside the box’. That is, the mind-box we were each fitted with in the name of education, and which the mass media feed 24/7 with a confusing, incoherent, mind-numbing mixture of programmes.

That’s why this blog now.

Where does this special information come from?

It was unexpectedly gifted to me, the founder of this blog, after a period of some long and deep thinking.  It came from I know not where nor whom, but it was not directly from a person or a book or a video – which is not to imply any religious notions.  The adopted name and title clearsthepath hints at the nature of this work – clearing the path to a deeper and more coherent understanding of this world.

Much work has already gone into making a modest start to this project. But there’s much much more still to be done. The next stage potentially involves everyone and anyone who becomes aware of this knowledge and is ready to work with it. A forward looking practical vision, entitled One Humanity (OH), is outlined in Notes from the Threshold, a free download from www.pathwayinitiatives.co.uk/

That’s why this blog now.

Also, many indicators around the world are telling us that the stage we, humankind, are currently at on our evolutionary journey is our collective adolescence.

What does that mean?

Adolescence is the phase when the child, still showing various infantile tendencies, is physically maturing into adulthood. For many adolescents it’s a phase of much insecurity and anxiety, mixed with excitement and discovery. Thus the emotional volatility, the swinging between extreme states of mind, such as idealism and cynicism, the hyper-sensitivity to how others perceive us and a tendency to over-react to whatever pleases or displeases us at any moment.

It’s the phase when we strive, as self-centred individuals, for independence from parental authority and control, having not yet realised that full adult maturity involves acknowledging our inter-dependence on one another. So, in our collective adolescence we find various relics of our collective infancy still deeply affecting our lives and our world. For example, there’s the obsession with competing to be a winner and defeating those we sense as rivals – which goes back to the infantile and animal phase of establishing one’s place in various pecking orders.

Then there’s our preoccupation with claiming exclusive ownership of material possessions, property and territory – like small children or like animals defending their living space. Yet all the while, our adult minds know full well that nobody actually owns this planet and can therefore realistically claim ownership of any part of its surface. Obviously, growing out of this immature phase is going to take some time, but a positive start is badly needed right away.

That’s why this blog now.

Clears the path? – what path?

The path to a more grown up and sane future for humankind on Earth is littered and obstructed with the debris, relics and damage of a dark era of descent into matter that we could now start to leave behind. That is, once we start to wake up and grow up, as mentioned earlier, but from here on with the benefit of this vital Threshold knowledge that’s presently being made available.

That’s why this blog now.

Some may at first find this kind of thinking discomforting, and immediately feel defensive or hostile towards such unfamiliar and radical ideas as those being referred to here and in Notes from the Threshold. As a consequence, they may prefer to hang on to what advantages they feel they’ve gained under the prevailing status quo, regardless of whether they sense a resonance of truth and integrity with this new but timeless thinking.

Also, being fully adult in mind and body involves taking on the responsibility to help all those not so advanced on the path we’re all treading, each at our own pace, instead of selfishly exploiting those we consider inherently inferior or weaker and therefore OK to exploit.

That’s why this blog now.

This short introduction can only serve as a hint and offer a few clues as to what’s to follow. The basics of this work project have now been assembled and can be found in a few documents – all with Threshold in their titles, the main source being Notes from the Threshold – all on the website www.pathwayinitiatives.co.uk/

That’s why this blog now.

  1. This stuff should be taught at school. Or at least school and college students could be introduced to it. Just to show that our education system is ‘objective’ and ‘fair’…ehem!
    Come the day when a critical mass of people globally will tune in to this sort of thing. I don’t like to see heads rolling but we might just tell our ‘leaders’ and our corporate kleptocrats to get out of the way and let us lead our lives,
