Consciousness vs. Responsiveness

If we are ever to reach a “golden age”, it will take a conscious effort. Meaning that; simply responding appropriately to stimuli is not enough. We must use consciousness to allow us to step outside of our reactions in order to see a more complete picture and enable us to act on awareness rather than the relative sensational responses. It will require a majority of our conscious efforts to even begin to move in that direction. It seems to be a battle between consciousness and responsiveness. Right now we are dominated by responsiveness which has led us through many wonderful and horrible places. I wonder where consciousness will lead us. We have yet to grasp the concept collectively, so we can only wonder until we walk the path.
