compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

" KNOW THYSELF " said Socrates

to truly understand THIS.

"REALITY cannot be found except in ONE SINGLE SOURCE,

because of the interconnection of all things with one another."

( Gottfried Leibniz, 1670 )


"WE R a part of NATURE as a whole whose order we follow."

(Spinoza, Ethics, 1673)

Hail to Spinoza !
- and his support for Leibniz during the times of the inquisition

In the context of the Kosmic Consciousness question & answer session about whether there is - a 3D visual model for the integral map - I would like to share some ideas of using the triangular prism model - to map the evolving stages of personal development to assist ... THE journey in search of SELF and ALL that IS LOVE.
Looking at the hexagrams of the I-Ching Leibniz recognized his own system of binary mathematics in the symbols by representing yin (the broken line) as ZERO and yang (the unbroken line) as ONE.
For Leibnitz there were only two unquestionable realities - ZERO and GOD
3-Divine Feminine, Kundalini, Music of Eileen Meyer

Comments would be most appreciated ...

" So...when I think of myself more as 'human' than 'divine', I am erringly understanding myself ... and the best thing I can do for myself is to just remind myself to just be my authentic self, the divine God-particle that I truly am " Lori

Oh dear.

How is it possible that ZERO exists?

Does ZERO exist only in a relative sense?

The symbols of the I-Ching DO NOT include ZERO because of its non-existence in the ancient Chinese mind-set - & yet the hexagram symbols, provided for Leibnitz, corroboration of his own system of binary mathematics !! ??

ZERO as data or information IS but a symbol - a symbol of relativity in fact !

ZERO as wisdom of knowledge cannot exist & as such the ONLY unquestionable reality is the ONE force of GOD - which has forever existed !

The individual who is deeply awake to this Authentic Self, which is the evolutionary impulse, feels an ecstatic compulsion to create the future.
He or she becomes aware of being not separate from God himself, herself,
or itself, at the leading edge, endeavoring to create the next moment.

Such an individual realizes that the only one in the driver’s seat is me, because
I am the one who decided to start this roller coaster in the first place.

When we embrace or awaken to the Authentic Self, we realize that I’m not really here to live my own life, and I’m not even really here for my own liberation.


I’m here to create the future, because there’s nothing else for me to do. I am God in manifest form, and it’s really up to me and me alone, because I’m the only one there is to do this.

So I find my own liberation as a manifest, incarnate, sentient being through committing myself to creating the future.

When two or more individuals who have awakened to what I call the Evolutionary Impulse, or Authentic Self, come together in deep dialogue and focused conversation, the experience is something akin to thinking aloud with yourself.


Because there is only
ONE Authentic Self.

What is the true meaning of the word Jihad? To conclude our week's investigation into Islam and the beauty of this great religion, which is so often hidden behind the violent and extreme forms we see in the headlines, we present an article by Dr. Elizabeth Debold from EnlightenNext magazine, in which she explores the deeper meaning of Jihad in its authentic form. In it, she presents a view where Jihad is not a battle with "unbelievers" who are outside of us, but a much deeper and more vicious inner war between good and evil—between our inner demons and our heart's longing for freedom and liberation.
