Autumn shifted its weight and squished the life out of summer last night. It summoned the rain – the very day my cord of wood was delivered. A mist now hangs over us like an inspector making certain summer warmth doesn’t dare sneak back into the landscape.
What a perfect day to put all else aside and focus on our GenOne homework with my GenOne Circle.
Beloved Guides: We like your homework assignment.
Welcome! What a surprise! I had no idea you would be with us today.
With the Love felt and expressed in your Circle call today, we hoped for an invitation.
Always! And look at the time: 11:11:03 a.m. You are too clever!
We know when to knock.
A quick overview about this visit: With the evolutionary connection strengthening on the continuum, the veil between connections is thinner. Humans stand more easily in both dimensions. Barbara’s Wheel of Co-Creation shows the “arrow of evolution” and how it is more efficiently passing through the veils.
We hope all understand how willingness to evolve beyond current levels holds a major key to evolutionary mysticism. Let us be clear, it is available to each consenting person.
And so, as you see, we have come as support.
Thank you for your presence. Your strength and clarity are appreciated.
In our homework this week, we are to meditate and live with the following Code: “Reside in the NEW, in the NOW at the edge of Evolution.” We are asked to be still, be silent, be awake to what is being revealed in the “new now”.
Then, we were asked to remember the question posed by Bruce Sanguin: What does it mean to be an evolutionary mystic – to have the arrow of spiritual essence moving through our lives taking us to the “new now”?
And finally, we reflect on Tuesday’s presentation by Ilia Delio, OSF, Director of Catholic Studies and Visiting Professor at Georgetown University. She addressed our new age of Technology. While we rapidly adjust to new styles, practices, methods of communicating, she highlighted how it is leading us to deeper spirituality.
At first, this seems ironic since many of us see many pitfalls and folly of overuse.
And your Circle members responded honourably.
They did. The teachings are at the fingertips of our being, our consciousness. I’d like to share two stories from our Circle today – both contain examples of practicing our “new now”:
First, C.’s experience. She left the USA a few weeks ago to attend her daughter’s wedding in Rwanda.
The groom, a man from Rwanda, was from a high ranking family so there were 7 ceremonies as part of this wedding. C. was able to attend four ceremonies and had been warned not to talk about genocide or the various tribes that were affected. It is illegal to even speak the names of the tribes, she learned. Rwanda is attempting to exist as one nation.
At each ceremony, C. was given a seat with elders, family members and VIPs. Much to her amazement, throughout these celebrations various family members elaborated on the genocidal events and how they affected their family and country. This happened repeatedly – exposing horrors and miracles.
When she asked about their openness, they explained she was now a family member. As they had come to accept and love her, they brought her securely into the family through sharing who they are and what they had been through. They wanted her to carry the knowledge as would any family member.
Instead of seeing glaring opposites – race, colour, culture, etc. - C. felt the embrace of these welcoming people. Not only did they demonstrate their Love, they demonstrated their trust of her Love. They opened themselves, showed their lives and shared their hope so she would fathom the depth of their acceptance and welcome for her.
We are aware you wiped tears throughout her powerful story. And the second one?
T. identified with C. She had a parallel experience in Syria.
T.’s sister had married a Syrian man in the USA. They were in an accident and were both killed. T. and her husband, with two children of their own, immediately welcomed the orphaned niece and nephew into their home and lives.
A couple of years ago, T. took her niece and nephew to Syria to meet their Syrian relatives. The family’s response to her surpassed every expectation. She was welcomed and placed in a position of honour; she was awed by their Love and acceptance.
As she gave examples of this family’s embrace, she said repeatedly, “I am only an aunt! They treated me as though I was their parent!”
I had to smile over her astonishment. I don’t have to meet T. to know her presence is filled with Love.
What perfect stories to exemplify your assignment.
Profoundly! T. and C. personified Bruce Sanguin’s description of evolutionary mystics. They each portray a sense of deep inner being that removes boundaries wrought by politics, race, environment and culture.
Beloveds, this message is needed for our world. This is the experience needed to turn the hearts of world leaders inside out. Life, miraculous or tragic, needs to be shared and heard – nose to nose or through technology – with open hearts that invite Love and encourage the flow of transforming compassion and hearts.
Are Evolutionary Mystics finding ways of doing this?
Yes. The way is not complicated. For example, look at GenOne. With the Internet, we are able to participate in this evolutionary learning event. Before the Internet, how would we have learned about such an opportunity? Would we have been able to spend up to three hours a week on long distance calls without charge?
Technology allows meditation with people from around the world. We hear stories, first hand, of incredible Love and acceptance surpassing borders, boundaries or differences. We are experiencing a “new now” – a global Love that has been beyond our reach without technology.
As Ilia Delio stated in her presentation to us, technology is here to enhance spirituality in the world. Yes, we have complained about it, but, “We cannot know how to use or develop technology…if we do not know where we are going or why we are going at all. Evolution is not a blind, mechanical process, but a dynamic unfolding of consciousness and complexity.” (Chapter Nine of The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution and the Power of Love.)
As with the intellect, so it is with technology: Essential, but with management.
Perfect summation, Beloveds. Thank you for your Divine encouragement and validation. Thank you for being a steadfast presence.
Are you a conscious evolutionary?
Barbara Manx Hubbard wrote The Evolutionary Journey: A Personal Guide to a Positive Future. In it, she lists numerous personality traits with an invitation to see how much the reader matches with the archetypal evolutionary personality.
Do these descriptions fit you? (The range for the “fit” could be from 1% to 100%):
- You believe that the basis of reality is not material but consciousness and intelligence. You sense a spiritual reality.
- You believe you are not alone in the Universe. You intuitively sense the existence of other intelligence.
- You would accept an invitation from extraterrestrial visitors to go up in a space craft.
- You are physically healthy. You have a positive attitude toward life and practice some form of meditation or positive thinking exercises.
- You have a long history of aloneness. You are an unusual type in your organization or your family.
- You are not seeking manipulative power. You are interested in empowerment of yourself and others.
- You have an intuition of a Designing Intelligence inherent in the nature of reality which is progressing toward a desirable future.
