10 Characteristics of Highly Evolved
-by Jeff Street
Highly evolved beings, and the civilizations that they create, embrace principles and
ways of being that create highly beneficial outcomes for all. Their civilizations are characterized by cooperation, harmony, and love rather than competition, conflict, and fear. The net result is
civilizations where freedom, prosperity, and happiness abound. Their example serves as a great model for Humanity to emulate if it truly wants to create the better world that many of us are hoping
At this point you might be a bit perplexed and thinking something like, “What highly
evolved beings and civilizations? Where are they, I don’t see any.” Well, it indeed may appear that way, but in fact, we are very much not alone.
There are two reasons that the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations is not
apparent to us; (1) most of them exist in higher dimensions of our physical
universe, so they’re not visible to us, and (2) they aren’t all that interested in direct interactions with a civilization as primitive as ours. But rest assured that many of these
civilizations are very interested in facilitating the evolution of Humanity and are doing so in a number of subtle ways behind the scenes.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the top ten ways of being of highly evolved
1 – They Deeply Understand the Unity of All Life and Live
Highly evolved beings know the Oneness of all — they know we are all parts
of a singular, yet multi-threaded, consciousness that is All That Is. They know that any apparent separation is an illusion because everything is part of one thing and it is all interconnected and interdependent. They know that any action they take that affects
another being or thing ultimately affects everything else.
This is the single most important realization any being can have and in civilizations
created by beings with this understanding it is the foundation of their way of life. They deeply know that what they do to another they are ultimately doing to themselves — and hence they treat
everyone and everything with great care and respect.
2 – They Always Tell The Truth
Highly evolved beings always tell the truth. They are essentially incapable of lying.
They have deeply learned that deceiving themselves or others is counterproductive to achieving their highest intentions and desires, so they have absolutely no interest in lying. But even if they
did, any attempt to do so would be easily detected by all those listening.
At the level of consciousness of highly evolved beings, their ability to sense energy and vibration is greatly enhanced
(everything is energy; matter, light, thoughts, emotion, etc) and so any attempt to communicate something that is untrue would be readily apparent to all listening. At this level, a being cannot
communicate something that is untrue and not radically alter the energy they are emitting.
In stark contrast, denial and deception run rampant in Humanity — we frequently lie
to ourselves as well as others, and we are easily deceived. Only by transcending separation consciousness, only when we realize that we are all
expressions of the same one consciousness, the same one being, and by embracing the unity and equality of all beingness will we eliminate the need to deceive and avoid all the associated undesirable
As an example of how we lie to ourselves, consider the violence that is portrayed in
our entertainment and its connection to the increasing violence in our society. The portrayal of violence runs rampant in our movies and TV programs, in our video games, and even in our children’s
toys. You’d have a hard time convincing a highly evolved being that the constant stream of violent images we bombard our children with has no effects on their beliefs, attitudes, and
Humanity, on the other hand, can’t seem to admit that the increasing violence in our
society arises, at least in part, from the continual onslaught of such images. Because if we did, we’d have to do something about it, and we feel powerless, so we just ignore
This pattern of seeing self-damaging behaviors and then doing nothing about them is a
classic sign of immature beings. Highly evolved beings never hide from the truth, and they always speak the truth. And of course, when they speak the truth they also take congruent and appropriate
action which is the subject of the next two points.
3 – They Always Do What They Say
Highly evolved beings have a habit of speaking their truth, and they also have a
habit of following through with what they say they will do, whether it is said to others or themselves. Their actions are always consistent with their words, they don’t say one thing and do
Humans on the other hand, often say one thing and do another — and then ignore, deny,
or lie about it! Obvious examples abound.
For highly evolved beings, sticking to their word is a matter of honor and integrity.
If they don’t think they’ll be likely, or able, to do something they don’t say it. If on the other hand, they meant what they said, but later they find they can’t keep their word because of
unexpected circumstances, they will face it squarely and go talk to everyone involved to clear it up. They will humbly and truthfully explain why they won’t be able to do what you
4 – They Always Do What Works
When highly evolved beings see a less than desirable situation and have understood
why it exists, they always respond with something that works. They do not ignore it, deny that it exists, cover it up, do something that doesn’t address the true problem, or in some other way fail to
take appropriate action — as is often the case with Humanity.
Examples abound, here are a few of them:
If our goal is to live a life of peace, joy, and love (which I sincerely hope it is),
then violence does not work. This is immensely obvious if you take but a moment to contemplate history — isn’t it clear that retribution begets retribution, hate begets hate, violence begets
violence. And yet we repeat the pattern over and over.
If our goal is to live long and healthy lives, then consuming meat daily, smoking
known carcinogens continuously, and drinking alcohol regularly does not work. This has been amply proven, yet many of us continue to do these things.
If our goal is a society free of violence and war, then the modeling of violent
behaviors and attitudes to your children, via our entertainment and toys, which has clearly been proven to facilitate the adoption of those violent tendencies, does not work and would be stopped
immediately. Yet, we do nothing.
5 – They Never Kill Each Other
Highly evolved beings never, under any circumstances, kill another incarnate being
unless specifically asked by the other to do so. Within Humanity, murder and mass murder (war, etc) occur appallingly frequently. We justify much of this behavior as
It’s interesting to note that in primitive societies all attack is called “defense.”
And of course, we certainly have the “right” to defend ourselves and do so in any way we see fit — after all, we are free and sovereign beings, so we
“have the right” to do anything we please. Yet, a highly evolved being would not kill another even in situations we would clearly consider self-defense.
This is because they understand that every act is an act of self-definition, every
act defines who you are. You are creating yourself in each and every moment by what you choose to do, so it boils down to deciding who and what you want to be. Do we want to define ourselves as ones
who are willing to do anything to survive, and create a dog-eat-dog kind of world in the process?
Ultimately, highly evolved civilizations transcend the need to kill others because
they no longer create situations where they would find themselves needing to kill. And that’s because they have awakened to their Oneness, and every aspect of their attitudes and behaviors have
When Humanity fully awakens then all the conflict and competition will end — no more
killing, no more dog-eat-dog world. Instead, we will find ways to share everything and cooperate on a grand scale. And this new-found level of cooperation and sharing will create an unprecedented
level of prosperity and happiness for all, and no one will ever have any reason to attack or defend (physically, emotionally, financially, etc) for any reason ever again.
In the rare case that an unenlightened person chose to mortally attack you, you would
simply allow yourself to be killed knowing that “death” is an illusion and peacefully exit physicality and return to your eternal non-physical self and existence. You would not choose to perpetuate
more violence just for the survival of your physical body — which is not you; it’s just a temporary vehicle. When you know that the real you can’t die it changes everything!
Know then that the body is merely a garment. Go seek the wearer, not the
cloak. — RUMI
But what if we were attacked by another civilization you might ask? Don’t we have to
worry about another civilization coming to Earth one day and destroying us? This question is addressed in Conversations with God Book 4 and I will defer to it on this
All I’ll say about this is that our fear of this scenario is being encouraged by a
whole slew of alien invasion movies and the like. Given the benevolent extra-terrestrial presence that is here (i.e. highly evolved civilizations) trying to gently facilitate the awakening and
evolution of Humanity, it makes you wonder if some or all the “alien fear porn” is the work of some agency with a nefarious agenda? If you’d like to explore this topic further, then I suggest you
check out the work of Dr. Steven
Greer. He is the world’s leading expert and most trust worthy source on the extra-terrestrial presence, and who, why, and how it is being hidden from us.
6 – They Never Damage Their Environment
Highly evolved beings would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm
the physical environment that supports their society. They deeply understand and appreciate the interconnection and interdependency of all life, and they deeply appreciate the environment that
sustains them. They know that to continue to have their environment to provide for their needs, and for the needs of all generations to come, then they must live sustainably — they must live in a way
that is gentle, careful, and thoughtful to their natural environment and planet and wisely husband her resources.
Humanity, on the other hand, continues to demonstrate a callous disregard for their
environment using and abusing it, and poisoning it (and ourselves in the process)!
7 – They Share Everything With Everyone, There is No
In highly evolved civilizations there is no such thing as “ownership.” This is
because they understand that since they are all One, everything that exists belongs to everyone that exists. And hence, they share everything with everyone all the time.
A far cry from Humanity, which generally only shares with others in very limited
circumstances. We have an economic system and mindset that encourages us to accumulate as much stuff that we can call our own as we can, and that encourages a relative few to hoard the majority of
the resources and wealth of the planet. To most of us, sharing everything probably seems completely impractical and unworkable. It’s very hard for us to imagine how sharing everything could work —
but believe it or not, it works very well.
In highly evolved civilizations the idea of “ownership” is replaced by the concept of
“stewardship.” Beings in those civilizations mutually agree on who will have stewardship responsibility for what, who will partner with whom, and who will perform what functions. The person or
persons that care for and manage a given thing or resource (e.g; the stewards) do not “take” it as their own — they are simply responsible for managing it. It could be said that the resource is
“owned” by the community and the steward of the resource is taking care of it on behalf of the community. But of course, enlightened communities understand all resources are essentially gifts from
the Universe that are to be managed responsibly, and used fairly, for all those using it now, and in the future.
Those who accept stewardship of anything, be it land or something else, do not
imagine that they “own” it. They understand that they are merely caring for and managing it for the benefit of the community. For instance, no one imagines, that just because they are stewards of a
particular plot of land on the planet on which they incarnated, that they “own” the minerals, water, and whatever else is under that plot of land — all the way down to the center of the Earth. Nor
does anyone imagine that they “own” the air, or the sky, above a particular plot of land — as high as the sky goes. Such ideas are absolutely ludicrous to highly evolved beings and any debates about
who owns the “rights” to whatever seems utterly pointless to beings who understand that they are all One.
A big stumbling block to embracing the idea of “no ownership” is our difficulty in
imagining how we would earn a living without the profit motive that seems so strongly linked to ownership. But unlike Humanity, highly evolved civilizations do not view living as something you have
to “earn.” Systems can easily be devised that allows a society to fulfill individual and group needs without the members of that society having to sell their soul and abandon their dreams to survive.
Many civilizations have created such systems and have demonstrated that they work very well — producing a high degree of freedom, prosperity, and happiness for all.
Highly evolved beings also have a different way of looking at “profit.” They do not
consider it “profitable” if one individual benefits at the expense of another. They do not consider it honorable or acceptable if they get more and another gets less. In highly evolved civilizations,
no one benefits unless everyone benefits. It might be said that they would measure profitability by how well a stewarded resource is managed and how well it provides benefits to the members of the
community. And hence, they would likely describe the degree of success of any venture by using the term “beneficial,” rather than the term “profitable.”
If you still think a society sharing everything is unworkable consider that Humanity
makes sharing work all the time on a small-scale — with our loved ones and families. In this context, we generally care for others no matter what, regardless of what they’ve
What if we could extend our sense of family beyond blood relatives? What if we could
start by caring about everyone in our community with that same type of bond and the same sense of connection that we have for our family members? And then what if we could extend it to everyone in
our country, and then our world? This is the difference between highly evolved civilizations and Humanity — they feel that same connection, the same amount of compassion, care, and love for everyone
in their society.
C’mon people now smile on your brother, everybody get together and try and love
another right now. — THE YOUNGBLOODS, GET TOGETHER
When you begin to stop seeing others as outsiders, when you begin to transcend “us”
versus “them,” you are on the verge of a breakthrough in the evolution of your
consciousness. When you can treat every single person with kindness and respect no matter what they have done, then you will have transcended separation and will have powerfully aligned
with the unconditional love of the Source within you.
One of the root impediments to adopting a sharing economy is the belief that there is
not enough for everyone, which leads to people wanting to make sure they get theirs, so someone else doesn’t get it instead — possessiveness, greed, hoarding, etc. The belief in scarcity is one of
the key beliefs that is responsible for creating the type of world we live in (e.g; one characterized by conflict and competition).
The apparent scarcity of many things on our world is largely due to unfair or
inefficient distribution, not any inherent scarcity. As a shameful example, there is actually enough food produced on this world for everyone yet many continue to starve. And of course, much of the
apparent scarcity on our world is intentionally manufactured by commercial interests to maximize profits or by distribution strategies based on profit only mentalities which leaves many without even
though there is plenty. And imagine if all of the energy and resources invested in the worlds war machines was applied to everyone’s welfare — we could easily solve most if not all of the worlds
Because highly evolved civilizations work cooperatively, share everything, tell and
face the truth, and do what works, they rarely experience scarcity. But even more deeply, highly evolved beings have transcended scarcity altogether because they understand metaphysics and know that they are creating their reality with their
thoughts and beliefs and so ultimately scarcity is an illusion which is self-created.
