If someone causes harm to another person based on anger for example, that is letting the unconscious take over. This is a state of imbalance and disharmony with our environment. It is us taking action, yes; but it takes less effort to go with our unconscious drives than to look outside of ourselves, be aware of our environment, restructure our thought patterns, and limit our impulses. The "work" involved in human action toward balance is learning how to create harmony. Life is a learning experience, and learning results in an increase in consciousness and vibrational energy. When we learn how to be in harmony, we can exist in this state, and we have a higher amount of energy because energy flows smoothly through us. It doesn't have to be expended through conflict. We channel it from the earth and sky, and transform it into a more harmonious state just through being by unconsciously directing it toward balance. If our personal energy is balanced, it balances the energy we channel. I know I said that the unconscious was responsible for creating chaos, but this is a form of energy. If we channel energy without conscious awareness of the directions it is going in, we create chaos because we don't know how to manage it. We haven't put in the energy to learn. I really should say the subconscious. The subconscious takes in earth energy, brings it up to our unconscious, and then our conscious mind (bringing in sky energy) decides what actions to take. A person who has not learned harmony won't put much conscious thought into their actions, thus just letting their unconscious operate. So the subconscious creates chaotic energy in the individual, and letting the unconscious deal with it without input from conscious awareness and thought creates chaos in the world. But someone who has a high state of consciousness has created balanced patterns of operation in their unconscious by interaction between the two (conscious mind and unconscious mind), and then their unconscious operates in balance because the conscious has already done the work. Does that make sense? To create harmony in the world we must create harmony in ourselves, between our conscious and unconscious mind, balancing energy, by channeling it through ourselves and out into the environment. The learning process takes expenditure of energy, and once we've learned, we have more energy because we are no longer expending it on this particular lesson. We constantly take in energy from our environment, and it flows through us. Thus history as a learning process is spiraling up in increased energy, and then some enlightened souls choose to opt out of this process and new souls go in and start at the bottom, and new circumstances arise, and we collectively forget, and we spiral back down again.
