"WONDER of WONDERS - intrinsically ALL living beings are Buddhas - endowed with wisdom & virtue but because men's minds have become inverted through delusive thinking ...

 

THEY fail to perceive this "- Siddharta Buddha
 

 

Man without a sense of the Absolute is a man that is bewildered and

distraught amongst countless relativities. In a world where there is no

Sacred, everything is profane. In a profane world, profanity is

indistinguishable from true and noble speech worthy of man and his divine

origins. Without such distinctions, man is free to bark everything and

anything that comes out of his mouth. Not realizing that the very freedom

of will that he uses to express his profanity is only made possible by the

existence of the sacred and supreme will of his Creator. Hence the

profound statement of Meister Eckhart, “the more he blasphemes, the

more he praises God ” rings true in our day more than in any other.

But the final word must be from the Master of Eckhart - Jesus - upon

whom be peace, who said:- 

 

Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.” (Matthew 18:7)

                                                                            - Shuja Ali Mirza 

 

 

 

 

"Widespread among human habits is the perception

that we are human beings that are having a spiritual

(consciousness) experience.

 

We need to turn that perception on its head.

 


We are BEINGS of consciousness
, living in a realm

of information  and having a material experience

not just a human one, but an experience of

participating in the entirety of material creation.

 

 


The universe IS continually generating fresh knowledge of itself
 
- creating new structure and new relationships. So too are WE – embedded in it, and it embedded in US "

Human liberation through Spirit IS
the goal and I think it’s about TIME
.

 

                                                                                       Elizabeth Debold

 

To paraphrase Professor Brian Cox in the final episode of "Wonders of LIFE" -

 

In a scientific sense - the Earth as OUR HOME - means that the ingredients that are needed for our species to live - an atmosphere, food, water and the right temperature for us to survive - are perhaps uniquely provided  to support the specific need for our biology and chemistry to work - following on from Professor Cox's introduction to the series in which he stated that -

 

SCIENCE has a responsibility 2 explain - spirituality.

"NOTHING in politics makes sense except in the light of cultural evolution."

 

What IS ABSOLUTELY required IS -

"A new form of agreement that transcends the horizontal left/right continuum"

The goal of ICE's proposed synthesis platform is to articulate a fresh political position that moves

in a "vertical" dimension above the current state of paralysis, transcending the horizontal

continuum of left and right, where politics are perceived within a simplistic "winning or losing"

frame of referenceTo accomplish this goal ICE's synthesis platform must incorporate the

essential strengths of each of the major perspectives that currently exist within the

American body politicThis requires the ability to see and understand the healthy and thus

enduringly necessary aspects of America’s conflicting political positions.

The political “synthesis” that ICE envisions must go beyond merely showing respect for each position;

IT IS NOT a matter of simply "brokering policy compromises between political tribes."

Rather, the synthesis platform must demonstrate a previously unconsidered perspective that

effectively transcends the current conflict by better integrating and harmonizing the fundamental

truths of each ideological camp.

"Evolution is a light which illuminates all facts, a curve that all lines must follow." -

                                                     Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - The Phenomenon of Man

Over the course of the past half century since its publication, this prophetic statement has turned out to be true, as evolution has become a defining framework in which we are beginning to understand virtually everything - from biology and technology to the interior dimensions of reality like our psychologycultural world-views, and even spirituality.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the notion that the evolutionary process is ultimately driven by a spiritual impulse is continuing to gain traction, with a growing number of progressive philosophers, scientists, and mystics exploring its implications.

To many, it is simply a compelling philosophy, uniting the revelations of science and spirituality in a way that no other theory can. But others, like Aurobindo before them, are beginning to reach beyond a theoretical discussion to wonder: What might human life and culture look like if we fully took to heart the reality of this view?

Freed from the mythic dogmatisms of premodern religion, transcending the materialistic biases of modern scientific thought, and liberated from the narcissistic self-absorptions of postmodernity, what kind of new world could human beings aligned with the trajectory of a spiritually evolving cosmos actually create?
