Working Together

Every week I make a recording for the International Koalition of Krones, and either as stand-alone or as a part of our IKoK bi-monthly Zoom Chats, I share a message from the Animal Kingdom.  I’d like to share this one with you.  You can find links to my work with the IKoK on my website www.aurian.blog

Today I am talking about a Collective Consciousness where the individuals really know about working together.  They are industrious, determined, and strong.  With stamina and patience, together they can build or bring down things that are far greater than they each could as individuals.  They work together for the good of all members of their community.  If one gets inured others will tend to it,  carry his load.  They work diligently.  They understand that they have to put in the hard yakka if they want to succeed. And believe me, they want to succeed and they are successful.  They are the second most prolific creature on this planet.   

They have one goal – the ongoing survival and success of their community.  They are social creatures and they know that all things will come with hard work, time and conviction and that they can overcome any obstacle if they all work for that one goal. So they do.  They all work for that one goal – survival of their species.

What animal could I be talking about?  Human?  We certainly have all these attributes – except one.  We too are strong, most of us will work hard at what we need to do to survive as individuals and family groups.  A lot of us will help others who are in need.  We can overcome amazingly hard challenges and we are also social creatures, however, the biggest difference between us and the animals I am talking about, other than physical form, is the one major step that we humans have not yet fully gained in our evolution – we don’t work together for the survival of our species.  We don’t work together for the survival of our home.

The Collective Consciousness of Humanity has almost 8 billion individuals. 

The Collective Consciousness of these creatures has an estimated quadrillion individuals.  That is one million trillion.  Way too many zeros for me!  They, not us, could be considered the rulers of this planet.  We humans do not even feature in their society.  We are not on their radar.  They have no idea that we are here.  They inhabit every continent except Antartica.  I am talking about Ants.

I think it’s fair to say that there are very few humans on this planet who do not really dislike ants.  Some folk may have a fascination about how their societies work, but generally we hate them and we fear them.  They invade our homes.  They can EAT our homes!  They get into our kitchen cupboards, our pets drinking bowls, our beds for goodness sake!  They swarm, they try to set up new colonies in the wall behind your sofa – and we wage war on them.  I’ve talked with the other Krones about this, we are all capture-and-release people, but ants and cockroaches?  Well there’s no capture and release for these creatures – they are killed!!!  Swatted.  Sprayed with Tea-Tree oil, boiling water poured over their nest, our homes surrounded with a moat of diatomaceous earth….. 

Yet, other than their physical form, in many ways they actually epitomise what we, humans, are aiming for.  We talk about aiming for Oneness.  For everyone to understand that they are each a small part of something that is far bigger than us.  That we are all connected.  That if something hurts our planet, our trees, our oceans, our family, we too – every one of us – are hurt.  All of us.  Including, ultimately, those that do the harm.

Other than our physical form we have so many thing in common with ants.  So many similarities and this, I believe, is why we really do not like them.  They could easily have been the dominant species of this planet if they were bigger.  We won that race because we have opposable thumbs and because we don’t follow that path of Oneness – that society that has only one mind.  We don’t subscribe to the hive mind.  It is our ability to think individually that allowed us to become dominant.  Though I suspect that ants would challenge that thought if we could communicate with them!

That ability to think individually is our greatest gift and our greatest burden.  I’m pretty sure that ants don’t have “Eureka” moments; I suspect that an individual ant couldn’t think up something as complicated as a motor car.  Or Electricity.  Or the wheel.  It’s probably just as well because if they could – we, humans, probably wouldn’t be here now. And I think – just my personal opinion – that it is this very ancient threat to our species that makes us hate them so much; the potential of similarity in everything other than physical form makes them too alike, too close to us for comfort.

  • Ants’ message is to remind us that we are stronger than we think.
  • That if we can come together in common cause, then with hard work, time and conviction we will achieve our goals. 
  • We can turn dreams into reality.
  • Individually we are small – together we are stronger than we could possibly imagine.
  • All things are connected – but humans have that added ability to think individually.
  • We need to learn to think individually and act as one for the survival of our species. 
  • It’s time to stop thinking about the small things; these will resolve themselves if we focus on that one thing we all desire – to build the best possible future for our species.
