Tradition is a container. It’s the necessary structure that is constructed in order to allow the most number of people access to the containers contents or treasure. In this post and podcast I explain how the traditional level of consciousness entered conventional wisdom and provides people with meaning and purpose. While tradition brings good things like structure and control, it isn’t entirely good. While it brings bad things like structure and control, it isn’t entirely bad. As consciousness raises, we can see in this phase the transition out of a binary system as we learn that it’s not as simple as choosing between the contents or the container. If we want the treasure, we have to buy the field (container), but a field with no treasure is expensive dirt.
