The reason why the lower centers of consciousness can’t bring you happiness is because they cause constant distortions in perceiving people and life situations. Those centers keep you from loving unconditionally and make your relate to people as objects, they make you waste your energy and subject to multiple addictions. You are in a rut of emotional overload. You are overloaded with multiple addictions and emotions, repression, anxiety, depression, dullness, that can’t be satisfied.
Where you are is perfect for your growth
The first center, the security center, your feelings of security are created by your emotional programming. The outside conditions of your life do not make you feel secure or insecure, they only trigger your inside programming. One person may feel insecure with a million dollars in the bank, while another person may feel secure with practically no money at all. You begin to move out of this center when you begin to understand that your programmed feelings of security or insecurity you picked up from addicted people around you as a child.
Operating from your security center is the loneliest center
When your consciousness is preoccupied with striving for what you feel to be your “security needs” you are more isolated from people than on any other level. You create “others” as objects to help you become more secure. On this level you can’t “love” others because this level creates great distances between you and other people.
The second center-sensation
If you are like many, sex might be your most looked for sensation. Your lifestyle may reflect this; speech, clothing, thinking, actions are determined by what you think will make you appeal to sexual partners. You treat others as sex objects. You will not find happiness sharing such a small part of yourself with others. You are not responding to them as a whole person and vice versa. Sex is a sensation many people are heavily addicted to. On this level it can also be food, music, social environment, movies, adrenalin, keeping you busy, but it is never enough. When you are enough through higher consciousness, everything can be enjoyed. Balanced, by upleveling addictions to preferences, you enjoy it all.
The third center of consciousness-power
Operating from this level is a step forward from the lower two centers-you have more energy and you are involved with more people. What you strive for on this level is money as power. The more money you have the more you can manipulate people; attractive home, fashionable clothes, status symbols, knowledge, lots of hobbies so that others see you as achieving. Sex may now be a power game. Do you go after a partner who is hardest to attract? Anxiety, ulcers and heart disease increase at this level. The more successful you are on the outside the less successful you are on the inside.
How do you know you are done at the 3 lower levels of consciousness
When you realize deeply you are not happy in life and your addictions seem futile. You renounce the emotional back logged demands and you become aware of your power games; status symbols, bossing and bullying people around. For example, it is clear that someone talking in a loud voice is trying to control people.
You have loads of things in your head that you are as part of your personal boundaries and social position
You will grow in happiness as you realize this “stuff” is not really who you are. One of the bonuses of higher consciousness is that when you give it all up, you get it all back. What you get back is what you really need to be happy. As you grow into the fourth center of consciousness you will find you have all the power you need in life. Because unconditional acceptance of everyone around you will open doors that you could never have opened when you operated from the lower three levels of consciousness.
