A Critical Mass
A new spiritual awakening is occurring in human culture, an awakening brought about by a critical mass of individuals who
experience their lives as a spiritual unfolding, a journey in which we are led forward by mysterious coincidences.
The Longer Now
This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation
with secular survival and comfort. While this
technological preoccupation was an important step, our awakening to life's coincidences is opening us up to the real purpose
of human life on this planet, and the real nature of our universe.
A Matter of Energy
We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field
of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit.
Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction...where attention goes, energy
flows...influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives.
The Struggle for Power
Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and so feel weak and insecure. To gain energy we
tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and thus energy. When we successfully dominate others in this way,
we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause
of all conflict between people.
The Message of the Mystics
Insecurity and violence ends when we experience an inner connection with divine energy within, a connection described by mystics
of all traditions. A sense of lightness - buoyancy - along with the constant sensation of love are measures of this connection.
If these measures are present, the connection is real. If not, it is only pretended.
Clearing the Past
The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under
stress. In these times, we can see our own particular
way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more
constant and we can discover our own growth path in
life, and our spiritual mission - the personal way we can contribute to the world.
Engaging the Flow
Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First
we have a question; then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us towards the answers, which usually are synchronistically
provided by the
wisdom of another human being.
The Interpersonal Ethic
We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives. Care must be taken
not to lose our inner connection in romantic
relationships. Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others. With
children it is extremely important for their early
security and growth. By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of
hearing a synchronistic message.
The Emerging Culture
As we all evolve toward the best completion of our spiritual missions, the technological means of survival will be fully automated
as humans focus instead on synchronistic growth. Such growth will move humans into higher energy states, ultimately transforming
into spiritual form and uniting this dimension of existence with the after-life dimension, ending the cycle of birth and death.
Holding the Vision
The Tenth Insight is the realization that throughout history human beings have been unconsciously struggling to implement
this lived spirituality on Earth. Each of us comes here on assignment, and as we pull this understanding into consciousness,
we can remember a fuller birth vision of what we wanted to accomplish with our lives. Further we can remember a common world
vision of how we will all work together to create a new spiritual culture.
We know that our challenge is to hold this vision with intention and prayer everyday.
Extending Prayer Fields
The Eleventh Insight is the precise method through which we hold the vision. For centuries, religious scriptures, poems, and
philosophies have pointed to a latent power of mind within all of us that mysteriously helps to affect what occurs in the
future. It has been called faith power, positive thinking, and the power of prayer. We are now taking this power seriously
enough to bring a fuller knowledge of it into public awareness. We are finding
that this prayer power is a field of intention, which moves out from us and can be extended and strengthened, especially when
we connect with others in a common vision. This is the power through which we hold the vision of a spiritual world and build
the energy in ourselves and in others to make this vision a reality.
The 12th Insight is yet to be released
