In this essay I discuss the nature of consciousness and its relationship to force and socially constructed reality, along with the relevance for therapy. I argue that both consciousness and force permeate all levels of reality including socially constructed reality. From a causal perspective, however, I consider the argument that consciousness as a social product makes profound sense, and should be taken seriously. I also give an overview on the dominating social structure today, which is based on scientific materialism. From a human perspective it is defective, seriously limiting the consciousness and psychology of the individual.
There is, however, an evolution of consciousness, which today is opening up the possibility for people to develop more integral awareness. In fact, individuals relate in various ways to the present reality frame, some few living more consciously, while others, the majority, are more collectively enmeshed. The implications for therapy are that individuals be taken where they are psychologically and assisted in becoming more conscious. Along with this, there is an ethical need for therapists to continually deliberate on their complicity with the present socially constructed reality.
