Imagination alone gives us a vision of the future

What is a visionary? Visionaries are those rare and inspired individuals who see great promise and imminent potentials for human consciousness and culture that most of us haven't even begun to imagine yet. They are no longer merely living to get and to have for themselves, or tenaciously trying to preserve and protect what has already been. Visionaries are living for what has not yet occurred because their attention is riveted by the promise of the possible—that future is already radiant and alive in the field of their imagination.

Because they experience that future - and feel its promise on a daily basis - they live in a state of perpetual discontent, simultaneously deeply inspired and ever-unsatisfiedHow many of us have the courage and the heart to live that way—to live for the future like those great souls who have given rise to the higher values of our shared culture?

Just as the sun is at the centre of our solar system, so too must the mind of wisdom be the centre of our diverse personalities. If our minds are strong, then the various parts of our lives will be held firmly to their proper courses, and there will be no chance of deviation.

In the context of my own initiatives to promote the work of dyslexic artists, I have in general

been a supporter of TAC Productions and their own TIME IS ART initiate; but this inspirational

piece from John Hazard, entitled Manifesting the Noosphere, IS right on time and on point.

Jose Arguelles may be dead, but as John Hazard has so succinctly summarised ...  Arguelles has

left us with a beautifully written book he calls “Manifesto for the Noosphere.” He clearly envisions

a new synthesis of collective human awareness, a new state of mind that is a shared experience.

Just as the biosphere is the unified field of life and its support systems…so the noosphere

is the unified field of the mind, the psychic reflection of the biosphere. Because we as a

species, the aggregate of consciousness-bearing cells of the evolving Earth, are not yet

awake to our role as a planetary organism, so too the noosphere is not yet fully conscious.

When humanity becomes conscious of itself as a single organism and unites to activate the

noosphere, we will find the collective resolve and will to reconstruct the biosphere and divert

the energy of the human race from a path of destruction based on a mechanised abstraction from

nature to a new harmonic order of super-organic reality based on an entirely different state

of consciousness than has yet existed on Earth.”

... and John Hazard concludes - Somehow, part of the description for how we get there from

here is caught up in our perception of time. Mostly, our way of thinking about time is by

thinking about the big hand and the little hand on a clock. Time is linear, and we perceive

it when we pay attention to the phase of the moon, or the rising and setting sun. And of course,

we get older day by day.
