The New Us

2020—a year that seems cosmically designed to nurture and facilitate greater clarity in human consciousness. As this new year progresses, many of us find ourselves navigating a period of both personal and global chaos that disrupts us spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Our entire species faces the consequences of a longstanding, compulsive fascination with attempting to forcibly control the flow and curate the content of the infinite stream of human information.

It seems our ancestors long ago began to imagine that they could claim dominion over the entire universe by dissecting it and exposing its basic mechanics. Perhaps fear triggered by an unexpected global catastrophe triggered this impulse within us; who can say? Yet it seems that we have taken the pursuit of information as far as it can go and have reached its zenith, only to find that we follow a false god. What has our pursuit of this false god taught us? That information is so easily corrupted, misinterpreted, restricted, confused, limited, and deceitfully provided that we simply cannot trust it to reveal for us the entire truth of anything at all. One by one, we are surrendering to the realization that we simply cannot use or manipulate data in ways that will allow us to control the rest of the universe for our own personal gratification or gain. At best, more information enables us to communicate better with the rest of reality, and to collaborate more consciously with life. Greater access to information does not grant us permission to assume dominion over life. Furthermore, we cannot even respond successfully if we rely solely on intellectual rationalism and objective materialism to justify our responses to reality.

If you believe in synchronicity, the year 2020 thus far suggests that we are rapidly approaching a tipping point of sorts in consciousness. We approach the new omega point together, where clarity illuminates the darkness and clears the confusion that for so long has shrouded and stressed the human mind. The Age of Information appears to be coming to a natural close as the structural limitations and intractable problems generated through relying solely upon information to guide our decisions are growing ever clearer to us all. The Age of Wisdom is rising, calling for an expansion of our awareness that still includes the use of information, while transcending its limitations by transforming its role in our decision-making process.

We came to rely upon information because when we first developed the power of reason we fell in love with its contribution to us. Understanding the world plays a useful role in the process of problem-solving.  Yet the thinking mind does not serve us best when it seeks to decide what we ought to be creating for ourselves. The mind’s proper role is to decide how best to achieve what our spirits want to bring forth, and not to decide what we need to manifest. Spirit initiates our best creative decisions based on all of life’s expressions at every level—sensory, emotional, rational and unseen. It invites our emotions to volunteer their feelings, our bodies to volunteer their reactions, and the entire world to participate in the choice of whatever comes next.

Clarity arises when we allow our personal field of awareness to expand beyond the limitations of our personal perspective by re-centering ourselves inclusively within an infinitely creative, eternally changing universe. It arises once we retrain ourselves to listen deeply and compassionately to the nonverbal cues that our bodies are constantly sending. It arises when we relax and allow ourselves to fully feel our feelings all the way through, no matter how uncomfortable they may become for a time, without discharging them aggressively or violently at others for “making” us feel them. It arises when we fall still enough to listen to the sublingual, whispering truths that flow beneath the highly excited, surface exchanges of our own beliefs and opinions.

Clarity arises when we fall mentally still, open our hearts, relax our bodies, and wait patiently for the aliveness of inspired insight to guide us, instead of relying only on the problem-solving brain to lead us through a difficult challenge. To put the brain in its proper place—to render it a congenial, co-equal branch of the body’s own regulatory system (instead of allowing it to imagine it can dictate the workings of our entire internal system) reveals to us where our structural social weaknesses also abide. As within, so without. Reason, untempered by compassion, condenses into cruelty for expediency’s sake. Punishment, lacking mercy, condenses into vengeance rather than justice. Action, lacking peaceful intentionality, condenses into selfishness rather than service.

To realize this sets us all free from the limits of reason.  We come more fully alive when we align ourselves with life in trust, willingly, courageously, compassionately, kindly, patiently, and with peaceful intentionality. We become at last what we have ever been meant to become, and our consciousness flowers. The Earth looks forward to the full flowering of human consciousness. Having birthed us and having allowed us to eat from her body for many millennia, she now looks forward to watching us self-coordinate and discover what we can do once we know how we are.

I therefore wish all of you a more inspired, loving, wiser, and more graceful life experience this year.  May the clarity of 2020 vision light your way! ❤️

Times Like These

During these challenging times, I’m maintaining focus on inner work. I continue to notice that when chaos surrounds me and getting my bearings externally doesn’t work (because our social maps fail), I can always establish an inner “attitudinal alignment” that enables me to center awareness deep within in my core, so that I might meet the apparent chaos from my internal place of greatest strength. 

My seven core be-attitudes? They happen to align beautifully with the seven chakra centers that Eastern philosophy notes as being the power centers within the human body. Beginning at the root chakra and ending at the crown, they are: trust, openness, courage, compassion, kindness, patience, and peacefulness. 

When I radiate these seven be-attitudes I find that I gain the highest degree of clarity about my surroundings as is possible under whatever circumstances have arisen. They keep ME clear. And while in that state, I am able to draw upon the aggregated wisdom of the cosmos, the inexhaustible power of love, and the innate gracefulness of the entire material world to support whatever needs to be accomplished. 
All I need to do is be willing to go within and realign myself to these base attitudes…right now. And since it’s always now, it’s on me to be always willing.

That’s my work. ❤️

Welcome to 2020

Welcome to 2020—a year that seems cosmically designed to nurture and facilitate greater clarity in human consciousness.

An MHP Holiday Message

As chaos erupts at the surface of things during this time of focus on the birth of Christ Consciousness, the dissolution and disarray of all social norms at superficial levels creates amazing opportunity for what nestles, seed-like and vulnerably opening, beneath the surface fractures in all of humanity’s systems.

Radical trust ignites the opening. like a seed pod opening and unfurling itself toward the sun. Seed pods of consciously-based radical trust are beginning to bloom everywhere at this time. Create your own pod or find a pod of individuals near you. Trust your intuition to guide you as to right timing and right locale. Know that what magnetizes you will not force you to remain in its orbit, but will draw you in naturally by how it manifests. Notice what magnetizes you, and what causes your heart to leap with joy, your mind to rest peacefully, and your body to relax and open wider to its own creative capacities and potential contributions.

Notice what makes your spirit SING…and do not settle for anything less at this auspicious time in the Great Internal Melting of human self-consciousness.  Decouple from any obsessive attachment to the thinking mind—not to undermine the power of thought, but to coordinate it more harmoniously with the brilliance of Spirit, with the loving heart, and with the graceful physical body.

Love all. Trust Self. Harm none.

Above all, be kind to yourselves at this time of great upheaval.

You ARE loved.

You ARE love, seeking the fullness and fulsomeness of its own expression.

Remembering Barbara Marx Hubbard

Dear Friends,

I am sorry to share that my dear friend and the “mother” of the human conscious evolution movement, Barbara Marx Hubbard, has departed from this material plane of existence. Godspeed to you, dearest Barbara…and may the love of all those who are grieving your loss lift your wings and carry you home.

Before she departed, Muse Harbor Publishing had the distinct honor and privilege of publishing The Evolutionary Testament of Co-Creation: The Promise Will Be Kept. Now, as I think back on all Barbara offered to the world through her many books and her entire life’s work, I am left to wonder…is the God that Barbara communed with keeping that promise?

The promise that Barbara Marx Hubbard foresaw—and what she shared throughout her long and illustrious life—refers to an emergent, unstoppable evolution in the nature and the focus of human consciousness. She talked often about how she was feeling a potent expansion of her own, ego-based perspective. She experienced within herself the emergence of this deeper, more powerful capacity for self-awareness and viewed it as the antidote to the challenges created by human self-consciousness. Barbara frequently experienced profound visions that involved all of humanity joyfully participating in a single, unified, living and self-aware system, containing a multitude of utterly precious human parts.

Barbara sensed that this rapid change in self-awareness was giving birth to a new humanity that would become more creative, intentional, and benevolent in its choices than has been homo sapiens. She even considered it to be creating a new species of human that she classified as homo universalis. Barbara realized that those who are presently undergoing this internal shift in consciousness were only beginning to learn and master their innate capacities, and she nurtured that process so that others would learn how to trust themselves to use their own gifts more gratefully, wisely and lovingly. Barbara further sensed that this new form of human beingness that is arising will soon inspire a secondary wave of more masterful human doingness. She therefore urged us all to join our geniuses as well as our genes, and to do our part so that humanity as a whole can overcome the many challenges we face.

The Barbara I knew inerrantly followed her heart’s inner compass of joy. Because she always focused on placing her grandest version of herself in loving, trusting service to her God—the Source of all life—Barbara lived an authentic life that was filled with joy, and purpose, and countless wonderful friends. She believed, quite strongly, that once any of us sets ourselves free to live our own authentic purpose, the loving abundance of the life force—which is our natural birthright—will be ours. That is the promise that Barbara believed God has made to humanity. And she made it clear before her death that this promise has been kept, and that the wave of change she once foresaw has already begun making its brilliant, flowing movement around this Earth. Of course, the global flood of greater awareness that Barbara Marx Hubbard predicted is not a material tempest of actual waters, but a tsunami-like wave of a powerful, unstoppable flow of good will, compassion, interconnectivity, and love for all that is, has been, and has yet to be.

Beloveds, as we collectively experience this massive, cresting wave of awareness moving toward us all like a brilliant flash of wondrous inner light, we need not be afraid of the power it carries. The light that rushes toward us now is no more fearsome than was the darkness out of which we now emerge. It will not swamp or destroy us with its radiance or its essence; rather, it will illuminate what we most need to see so that we can thrive in the joy of our shared aliveness.

Barbara knew this wave existed because she lived within it. Like a prophet of human consciousness, she proclaimed the coming of this great flood of higher awareness to all who were willing to listen: “Christ Consciousness is coming, so please open yourself and go meet it!” We have all been invited to open the inner floodgates that are holding back love’s healing energy, and to let it flow through us. Today, as we enter Easter’s Holy Week and humanity’s ancient stories of death and rebirth take shape in our collective consciousness, we will be well served to remind ourselves that Barbara’s most cherished vision was for each of us to hear the knock of Christ Consciousness at the inner door in our own hearts, and then rise to go meet it.
