Cosmic Christ    More | Link | FOCUS
"True mysticism is not, and cannot be, a private affair. It is by nature redemptive, as Christ is, and so we must become Christ, enacting the resurrection of the living Cosmic Christ in our beings and then our actions, to transform society and bring healing to all its suffering, broken parts through love, imagination, peacemaking, and environmental, moral, and social justice."
Restoring the mystical mind of compassion (the Christian work of love) can bring a global renaissance to the entire world, including every aspect of society, from religion to sexuality, from peace-making and disarmament to mentoring the young.
The Cosmic Christ is the Logos.
The Cosmic Christ IS "The One".
The Cosmic Christ is "the pattern that connects" (in the words of anthropologist Gregory Bateson, in "Steps to an Ecology of Mind", and quoted by Matthew Fox in "The Coming of the Cosmic Christ")
The Cosmic Christ is the pattern that interconnects everything that is. It is the pattern that holds the Oneness of being.
Human beings can incarnate or become the Cosmic Christ in their own personal being, by becoming attuned to the divine template or divine pattern.
"Logos designates the power of 'reason;' the pattern or order of things; the principle of relationship; and an articulation of something."
In general, the Logos has the following meanings: 1.) Order or pattern. 2.) Ratio or proportion. 3.) A discourse, articulation or account, even a 'sermon.' 4.) Reason, both in the sense of rationality and in the sense of an articulation of the cause of something. 5.) Principle or cause (logoi=principles, ratios, reasons). 6.) A principle of mediation and harmony between extremes."
Let us contemplate the one simple nature of that peaceful unity which joins all things to itself and to each other, preserving them in their distinctiveness and yet linking them together in a universal and unconfused alliance. Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works - John Farina, Editor-in-Chief
Dialogue    More | Link | Focus
We must bring people together from every point of view, and support an open and respectful dialogue among them, regardless of differences.
We must not close our dialogue to those who disagree with us, or take a different position or point of view.
Everyone is welcome into the dialogue who will honor the principles of dialogue.
Divine Feminine - The Goddess    More | Link | FOCUS
The energies of the divine feminine have been repressed or denied throughout history. Today, they are emerging again in significant ways.
We must work together to unite the energies of the feminine and the masculine spirit.
The great feminine figures of spirituality and religion can be understood as representatives of a universal spiritual force.
A balance between the feminine and the masculine energies is an essential part of spiritual and cultural health.
The Divine is neither he nor she, male or female, yet holds qualities of both.
"Deep feminism" is a way of perceiving and thinking that follows the interconnectedness of all being and that knows as its base the depth of this interconnectedness.
Everything is connected to everything else    More | Link | Focus
Everything is interconnected through "the pattern that connects" (in the words of epistemologist Gregory Bateson).
All things are One. The sense of individuation is a human perception, that creates "duality". We do need to think in terms of "the many", but from an absolute point of view, the Many IS the One.
The "patterns that connects" can be interpreted as the "Cosmic Christ" -- perhaps as an interpretation of the words "I am the vine, ye are the branches".
Gather the Women - Save the World    More | Link | FOCUS
Women bring life forward. Women are in touch with the cycles of life and function in a context that is deeply relational. Women have the capacity to generate creative solutions that benefit all life on the planet.
Women are creating a rich exchange of cultural values to dissolve the ties that bind us to the illusion that one segment of our human family can win while another loses.
Women are contributing to a new collective wisdom and we are lending our strength to that which we wish to embrace. From this emerging balance is being born a new dimension of our humanity.
If ever the world sees a time when women shall come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a power such as the world has never known. (Matthew Arnold)
Many experts, male and female, have acknowledged that the missing element in our social context has been the full participation of the Feminine Principle. Women are the Feminine embodied. Women are conscious that through their individual talents, skills and presence contribute to the evolution of all of humanity, individual and collective.
Global Oneness - We are all One    More | Link | FOCUS
Love is the universal force that interconnects everything.
All that is - is One.
There is a "universal template of being". This is what the Bible means when it says "We are made in the likeness and image of God."
If we are "All One" -- that includes everybody -- not just the people I like, or the people who share my beliefs or ideas. It includes those I must strive against, and, if I have them, my enemies.
We are responsible to each other, the earth, and future generations.
There are enough resources for us all, if we share.
Free exchanges of information allow for greater, collective creative potential.
Love, care and compassion have the power to transform the fabric of society.
Namaste    More | Link | Focus
The divine resides within you, and the divine resides within me.
When the divine within me honors or unites with the divine within you, you and I become one. This is the principle of Namaste.
The union of namaste connects people "horizontally", from person to person. But it also connects each individually "vertically", directly to the universal.
New Paradigm    More | Link | Focus
We need new ways of thinking and creative ideas.
We need to step out of the conventional.
We need to think "outside the box".
We need networking and discussion among all levels of society and a bringing together of people from all aspects of society.
We need new science, new understanding of the Universe, and new understanding of the nature of life and death and to celebrate the infinite potential of the Human Mind.
We need to be open and have openness of dialogue.
Teamwork - human beings must work together    More | Link | Focus
No one person can know everything, or have the answers to every question. We must work together to create solutions to the problems that face us all.
The individual human mind can only deal with so many issues and concerns at the same time. We need ways to share the load.
The One    More | Link | Focus
The One is the Absolute.
There is only one "One".
The Shift - Geopolitical    More | Link | Focus
The world is becoming increasingly global. International boundaries are dissolving. The nation-state is becoming less significant, and is blurring into a broader concept.
To build a healthy world, we must think globally. We are one world, one planet, one people. We need one system of global governance.
The Shift - 'Global Mind-Shift' - Psychological / Spiritual    More | Link | Focus
Globalization forces are transforming us all.
We are witnessing the birth of the true "Universal Human"
As human beings interact with ideas and energies from once-foreign or external cultures, they become broader, their insights expand, they become more universal
We believe that to unite as a human species, we need to engage, globally, in dialogue that will help bring our collective interests and objectives into focus. Only then can we truly begin to work together in a spirit of creative cooperation so necessary to our survival.
In the final analysis, change is all about motivation, and if we can see that beneath our many differences is a powerful undercurrent of connection — reflected in our common origins and our shared hopes for a better world for ourselves and for our children — we will find the motivation we need to change in ways that benefit not only some small group, but humanity, and life, as a whole.
A global mind-shift is a change in HOW we think.
We must learn to see the world and ourselves from an ever-broadening perspective.
Problems are signs that a way of thinking is obsolete.
Problems such as global warming, resource depletion, conflict, disparity between rich and poor -- 1) they are all global, and 2) they are all interconnected.
Rather than seeing ourselves as parts and pieces, we need to see ourselves as interconnected pieces of a larger whole. That's what we mean by a global mind-shift.
Universal Resonance / OM    More | Link | Focus
OM / AUM is a universal harmonic that takes the form of Oneness. It holds all things in unity, and heals fragmentation, confusion, and "illusion" ("maya").
By meditating on OM, an individual human being is guided towards their own higher self, the "pure ground of being", and the spiritual essence of every other human being.
