Direct Experience—Evolving Consciousness

December 16, 2014 | Short Reflections

We find ourselves today, individually and corporately in the space of impasse. This dark rift between what was and creative possibility is marked by fear, impassible distrust, anger, and layers of unredeemed memory. Alienation, suspicion, sadness and cynicism drive us apart as we face a global comeuppance—a transcultural, multinational, and economic requital precipitated by our habitual inexorable indiscretions and greed.

World religions are bogged down with fundamentalism and extremism which creates wariness and suspicion. Stalemating impasse encumbers our ability to SEE. We must learn to free ourselves to build new bridges so we overcome war of any kind, terror, indigence, even extinction.

Our mission in this new millennium is to reach our human fulness. We are immersed in and belong to the eternal process. It is in the very lifeblood of our experience where we will find the Ultimate. We answer the invitation, “Come and see!” by our own direct experience. Young children remind us of this, showing us concretely the essential aspect of life.

We need to embody a new, inclusive religious spirit, grounded in cosmology, empowered within the evolutionary process. We must embrace our unique role as co-creators of tomorrow’s world. Most humans intuit a convincing case for Love as Source and Goal of the evolutionary process. Clearly, we can become increasingly conscious of ourselves as love creatures and contribute to healing violence in and among us.

A new image of the Source and a new humanity considering a greater consciousness can be brought to bear transformed by the power of love. This can only be understood with the “third eye.” This is a daring and daunting challenge, spiritually summoning humanity to evolve toward greater unity. When we make this transition, we may be meditators of the future, models for multidimensional, cross-cultural aspects of a kind of global renaissance. New forms of consciousness have now taken on specific and definite cross-cultural structures.
