Nostradamus, Dolores Cannon, New Age Political Correctness

Obedience is not a value to me at all, neither is disobedience a disvalue. Your own understanding is the value. Out of that, obedience is good; out of that, disobedience is also good. Morality does not disappear, but acquires a totally different meaning… Language provides numerous terms to pinpoint [the traditional] type of morality: loyalty, duty, discipline, obedience… Great words! They can drive you into an unconscious, robotlike behavior. This is now the greatest danger to human survival: the capacity for man to abandon his humanity; indeed, the inevitability that he does so as he merges his unique personality into larger institutional structures. It is not anger, violence, aggression, destructiveness, which is so dangerous, but the greatly valued idea of obedience… Remember, if we want to create a new humanity, we will have to reconsider the whole mind of man. The past has created a very ugly mind – of course, with beautiful labels, with beautiful painted smiles, and behind is great animality. My emphasis is on the individual – not on the society, not on the nation, not on the religion… The individual has to be freed from all kinds of social bondages and slaveries… Become aware…and out of your awareness, obedience is good, disobedience is good. But it has to be rooted in your awareness – then everything is good. And out of unawareness, obedience is bad, disobedience is bad. Osho, Philosophia Perennis, Vol. I, Chapter 3
