It got me thinking about consciousness,
sexuality and relationships. Most of us
are not ready for the honesty, transparency and humility that are necessary to
make polyamory work. When I say
humility, I mean being able to look at your own jealousies and insecurities
with a gentle eye and a willingness to speak your truth with love. It takes a really conscious person to be
willing to expose themselves in that way.
The group interviewed by Newsweek spoke at length about the insecurities
that arise and how everyone deals with them.
Some would say that with that much
consciousness, a person would be more inclined to be monogamous. That’s one possibility, and is more socially
acceptable than polyamory. To play
devil’s advocate for a moment, at a certain level of consciousness the
awareness arises that we are all one, and that love is all that’s real. When this awareness lodges in your entire
being rather than just being a thought in your brain, perceptions shift. Societal norms become less important and the desire
to judge others disappears.

We can’t pretend that we’re innately monogamous
as a species. Some of us are more
inclined toward monogamy than others, but our level of consciousness does not
dictate an inclination for or against monogamy.
At lower levels of consciousness, people have affairs. At higher levels, they consider an open
relationship or polyamory.
