The topic of Collective Consciousness is one such topic that either it frightens you or it transforms you.
Your response depends on the state of the spiritual maturity you have at the time of receiving this truth. One thing is certain – truth frightens us. Man as such cannot handle too much of truth because he feels that the ground on which he is standing is moving away or his identity which he has built up in his entire life started to crumble away. That would be too much! Seriously, if truth were to be given out as it is honestly, many will run away and only a few brave ones will be willing to accept it. The simple truth is that truth straight away transforms us.
