The “Everybody Force”

 

1.

For fundamental positive change to happen in the world, the world of everybody (all-at-once) must represent itself (all-at-once).

The world of everybody (all-at-once) must get out of the position of passively accepting guidance and receiving calls to virtue. The world of everybody (all-at-once) must accept the necessary position of taking control of the world-situation. That is what must happen—or else there can no longer be any hope of a cooperative world at peace.

 

2.

Political and cultural leaders are not, themselves, going to be able to make this change occur. Such a profound degree of change cannot be brought about by the virtuous voice alone. Rather, such a profound degree of change can only be brought about by the force of humankind as a collective whole, or the “everybody force”. The inherent collective of everybody-all-at-once actually is (always) the only true power—but that collective is not currently exercising that power, because that collective is dis-united and in chaos.

 

3.

In the present-day, the culture and politics of illusion controls the world. The underlying idea that personal and collective egoic “self”-fulfillment is what life is supposed to be about is the root-source of the current global chaos. As a result, there are billions of human individuals (and, otherwise, large numbers of competitive and mutually dissociative groups, cultures, traditions, races, religions, corporations, and nation-states) that are, characteristically (and even strategically), out of touch with each other—like dust, and bombs, and petty traffic, all blowing in the wind. That wind steadily blows all prior unity into the bits and particles of human chaos.

 

4.

Merely calling on everybody to establish peace and rightness does not create the desired result. To call the chaotic world of egoic human individuals to establish peace and rightness is like trying to give verbal instruction to a cat. Generally speaking, cats do not take verbal instruction—nor do cats respond to advice, or callings, or guidance, or being told what to do at all. They simply do not do that.

That is also how it is with the world of humankind. The world of fragmented individuals and impenetrable collectives is neither available nor amenable to be advised, or called upon, or instructed. However, the world as everybody-all-at-once is (inherently) in a position to collectively decide that things are going to be rightened. The condition of the demand for rightness must be established as reality by the collective of everybody-all-at-once.

 

5.

If human beings collectively (as everybody-all-at-once) realize that they are (always already) in a condition of prior unity—and, therefore, of necessary co-existence and mutuality—with one another, and if, on that basis, they stand firm together, then they will be in a position to directly righten the world-situation. The collective of all the billions of people can—and, indeed, must—refuse to go on with the current chaos.

However, this profound shift will not occur simply because the billions of humankind are advised, or called upon, to do so. The billions of individuals—as billions of egos—are not going to respond to any such advice or calling, because they are too busy indulging themselves in the marketplace of personal, social, religious, scientific, and political illusions. Therefore, the egoless everybody-all-at-once must open their eyes, see for real, relinquish their helplessness, and take direct responsibility for the human world-event. The egoless everybody-all-at-once must renounce its illusions and “come out of the closet” as the only “we” of planet Earth.

 

6.

Fundamental (or all-rightening) change cannot be caused. However, fundamental change can happen—as a spontaneous (and all-transforming, or all-reforming) self-conversion. Also, the necessary self-conversion that is required for fundamental change to occur can, itself, be enabled to happen—not by causing it as effect (as if it were already not-existing, and, therefore, needs to be “created out of nothing”), but, most simply and directly, by re-empowering the self-organizing integrity and prior unity of the inherently egoless everybody-all-at-once that already exists.

It will not be the role-playing of “virtuous speaking” that brings about the necessary fundamental change. Calling everybody to change does not cause them to change. Those who are already moved to do right do not need to be told to do so—and, no matter how much advice and admonition they are given, those who are not inclined to do right are not going to “change their act”.

If there is going to be fundamental all-rightening change, something has to require change. Therefore, the world as a whole must be enabled to require change. It is an acausal matter—not a causal matter.

 

7.

The really-existing inherent collective of humankind has inherent power. The “everybody-all-at-once” has the inherent characteristic (and integrity) of prior unity and the inherent capability (and integrity) of a self-organizing principle. Power in the hands of a few cannot manipulate the total collective, if the total collective exercises its inherent power of prior unity and self-organizing energy.

It is not that “the people” (as some kind of immense natural ego) is morally virtuous, and should, therefore, “take over the world” through some kind of “mob rule”. Only more chaos can come from more ego-power. Therefore, it must be asked, where is true moral virtue? True moral virtue is only at the inherently egoless root-context of existence.

 

8.

Whenever human awareness is subordinated to the inherently egoless (and, thus, non-separate and non-separative) root-context of existence, human life becomes morally enlightened (in both voice and action) by the radiant virtue of selflessness. Therefore, if everybody-all-at-once is represented and mobilized by morally-enlightened principles and persons, Reality Itself has re-acquired the voice and ability to make right changes.

 

9.

It is only the presumption of egoity (or the illusion of inherent separateness) that makes the billions of humankind enact separation from one another—and, thus and thereby, they refuse to enact mutual tolerance, peaceful coexistence, and universal cooperation with one another. In Reality, the billions of humankind are not separate from one another—and should not act to achieve, affirm, or, in any manner, presume separation from one another. In Reality, the billions of humankind exist in the root-context of egoless prior unity. If the inherent energy of that egoless prior unity were brought to the fore, it would spontaneously take responsibility for self-rightening the world.

 

10.

What is (inherently) egoless must re-assert its inherent power in the world. The Reality-power of everybody-all-at-once existing in the condition of prior unity is what must re-assert itself. When humankind as a whole functions in the disposition of prior unity, a positive order is initiated and (inevitably) self-organized. That can (and must) be done.

Chaos has come about because everything became individuated—every “thing” and every “one”. When everybody is fragmented into separate units, there is inevitable chaos. However, when everybody starts to function on the working-presumption of egoless prior unity, then there is the means to bring order into the world of human experience. It is an egoless matter. And, therefore, it is a not a religious matter (in the sense of being determined by the dogmas of a particular religious tradition)—but it is a perfectly serious matter (in the sense of being an articulation of inherently egoless, indivisible, absolute, and infinite Reality Itself).

 

11.

As egos, the billions of humankind are simply a mob of individuals—and that is chaos. However, the billions as an egoless (or indivisible and cooperative) presence is something entirely different. The inherently egoless presence of everybody-all-at-once does not (in order to be re-asserted) require that it, first, be caused—or become the “idealistic” result of some kind of process whereby each individual must first, and one by one, become an egoless perfectly Enlightened being. No—the inherently egoless presence of everybody-all-at-once already (or priorly) exists—and, therefore, it need only be “realistically” self-asserted.

 

12.

Everybody-all-at-once must become dis-illusioned with the ego-made chaos of the present-time world-situation.

That dis-illusionment can make everybody-all-at-once effective in the true Reality-situation of life.

That dis-illusionment can set the energy of everybody-all-at-once in motion, free of the structures and purposes of ego-bondage.

That dis-illusionment is the root and necessary basis for the awakening of everybody-all-at-once to the inherently global responsibility of humankind.

“The fundamental urge of humankind-as-a-whole is to participate—not to be shut down, not to be thrown back on themselves, not to be treated merely as consumers who want this, that, and the other thing. People want the opportunity of participation. All over the world, the energy of participation is what should be tapped.”
