Our problems as human beings have been developed by our personalities: our patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. On our planet today, we are still being influenced by disbeliefs and misbeliefs that have us reacting as if we humans are the be all and end all of all creation. This perceived separation from the rest of creation – and indeed from one another if they happen to be of a different color and culture, sex, age, or whatever – lies at the crux of all our nasty, narcisstic, arrogant, destructive and dysfunctional behaviors. We’ve systematically over time made our personal problems into widescale social and planetary problems.
To move out of the quagmire of human consciousness and truly move into the personal transformation necessary in order to create social and planetary healing requires Soul Consciousness. Even our brilliant scientist Albert Einstein recognized that “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the level of thinking and behaving that created them.”
Tuning into our Soul’s – The Divine God Spark within us all – voice and abilities through Soul Consciousness is all about consciously connecting with our Soul-full Selves on a daily basis: This means thinking, feeling and behaving as The Mystics, Healers, Artists, and Prophets that we all are as we choose to LIVE LOVE, DARE THE DARK, BESTOW BIRTH and CELEBRATE COMPASSION.
LIVING AS MYSTICS
Living as a Mystic is all about connecting to the awe and wonder of life. Mysticism is a transformative approach or path to life involving spiritual activity, based on the awesome power and purpose of love, which wakes us up to beauty, truth, freedom, compassion, and justice or the reverence for ALL LIFE. The Way Of The Mystic is the path of connection, of living with purpose and balance, of being in service to one another, of being wonder-fully alive in every way.
Basing our decisions and actions on a balanced combination of both rational logic and intuitive guidance would be of great benefit in solving the complex problems of modern society. Just envision our societies and their influences on this Earth if we all integrated these ways of a Mystic in all our decisions, actions and reactions:
- Being in close communication with The Great Spirit/ God…
- Showing great respect for our fellow beings, The Earth and all that dwell here…
- Giving assistance and kindness wherever needed…
- Being truthful and honest at all times…
- Doing what we know is right…
- Looking after the well being of body, mind & spirit…
- Taking full response-ability for our actions…
- Dedicating a share of our efforts to the greater good…
- Working together for the benefit of all humankind…
- Enjoying and appreciating all life has to offer…
A Soul’s view of the world will always include the vision of The Mystic that lives within each and every one of us. This vision includes moving from our present devastating influence on the Earth to a more benign mode of presence as well as treating all beings from intentions of love, of unity, of oneness. It requires holistic thinking, intuitive listening, mindful talking, conscious actions, and appropriate response-ability.
“May we always live as love, keeping open a sense of wonder for all life and an eye for the beauty in all living things.” LIVE LOVE!
LIVING AS HEALERS
Living as a HEALER means developing the awareness of knowing when we are out of balance and how to then get back into balance. Many planetary spiritual leaders have stated that humanity’s most precious gift is the capacity to be aware: the power to be conscious, to be awake, to transform. It is NOT being in touch with- and integrating into all that we do- Love, Divine or Soul Consciousness that gets us into big trouble with ourselves, one another, and this earthly life we live in.
Living as a Healer is all about embracing the life lessons that are constantly coming our way as evolving beings. In order to do that, we have to deal with the negative, the painful and the destructive in ourselves, one another, our societies and cultures, and with nature itself. Our problems (challenges and opportunities) are the very place to discover wisdom and love and to learn how to heal.
Healing is all about becoming whole involving the totality of our body, mind, emotional, spiritual, social, and political being, as well as our relationship with all of life and The Divine Source. Real healing is a holistic journey within oneself to reunite body, mind, and spirit with our soul.
Our ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, or our personality can lift us into the glory and joy of living or send us into the deepest and darkest of despairs. Recognizing and working with the interconnectedness of all aspects of our nature involves:
- Naming the pain along with understanding and working with the personality patterns we acquired (recognition).
- Releasing our old ways of being by transforming our negativity (releasing)
- Consciously integrating our soulfully Divine Self into every aspect of our lives (reconstructing).
- Requiring us to do our Personal Process Work or to dance with our boogabears and demons, daring the dark to teach us its lessons.
Life is all about becoming a conscious co-creator (The Artist) in connection with Divine Source (The Mystic) in order to reach out and serve others (The Prophet) through a self-transformational process of letting go or healing (The Healer).
We all can continue to suffer feeling hopeless at all the worldwide oppression and destruction and feeling helpless to stop the worldwide polluting, pillaging, and terrorizing. Or we can Dare The Dark and do the healing work- be the HEALERS we are- that is demanded of our human species at this time. This is to do the work on our inner lives in order to transform ourselves and each other to living lives of love, of service in connection with one another and all of Earth’s inhabitants.
“Divine Healer, I release to you all thoughts, intentions, feelings, beliefs, attitudes, habits, energy patterns, and behaviors that bind me to negative, destructive and nonproductive experiences. So be it…” DARE THE DARK!
LIVING AS ARTISTS
Living as an Artist is really all about The Art Of Conscious Living. It is about being deeply engaged and connected with life, releasing and healing all that keeps us from moving out of merely looking and hearing into deeply seeing and listening and then allowing new energies to merge from that deep engagement.
Living as an Artist encompasses uncovering and developing our natural creative talents or abilities, putting in the time and energy it takes to develop our abilities into skills and then getting out of our own ego’s way to allow The Divine to join with us as we birth a new way of being, of expression, idea or art form. Living as Artists we are designers selecting, simplifying, embellishing, and making choices that reveal personality, perception, and insights. It is about managing the power of choice.
The way of the Artist is a way of being that celebrates creation, becoming the spokesperson. In order to do so we need to free up our vision by changing our consciousness. In doing so, we grow to understand that humankind is a co-creator with The Divine Source in creating our evolving world or universe. It is our task here on Earth to move beyond our illusions of separation into the very full and active energy of The Divine Creator and to then co-create with love and enthusiasm.
The abilities of being able to step outside the lines, to imagine things that aren’t yet manifested or connected, and to draw inspiration from deep within ourselves are all part of Living As Artists. It is about learning to enjoy the process, discovery, and risk of ideas, new directions, and challenges that come with knowing that there is another wonderful adventure just around the bend.
Living As An Artist means that you will be trying new things all of your life and making miss-takes galore. It means that you and your life are a work both in process and progress. Claim your treasures and give birth…
“Infinite Wisdom guides me. Divine Love prospers me. I am blessed by everything I undertake. I am expanding and utilizing my truest abilities and talents clearly, creatively, and attuned with the Divine.” BESTOW BIRTH!
LIVING AS PROPHETS
Living as a Prophet means that we involve ourselves in and create work that is an expression of Spirit, of Soul, at work in the world through us for our work is the way we return our gift to the community. The Prophet thinks of The Universe as their employer and one that encourages us all to work for and move humanity by contributing who we are, how we are, and what we can do in the spirit of interrelations and compassion.
The Way Of The Prophet acknowledges that every choice we make, every thought we have is an act of power that has biological, personal, environmental, social, and global consequences. As a result, we have to make a commitment as Prophets to not only remain constantly aware of the importance of staying conscious, present, response-able, and participatory but also of exploring and integrating new depths of response-ability, integrity, accountability, and connectedness or compassion. Therefor, we must know how to get unstuck, how to move past limitations and barriers, and how to create movement, change and transformation in all that we are and do.
Living As A Prophet is about being committed to helping support and celebrate the compassionate transformation needed in our world today. Acting out of a compassionate way of being requires that we be fully present as a being of love and light. To live an awakened compassionate lifestyle from the heart of our Inner Prophet means that we are an affirmer and celebrator of life. Living As A Prophet invites inspiration, participation, transformation and celebration.
As Co-creators we are response-able for our unique roles we are here to play into being in shaping and transforming both the present and the future of human society. In this process, we use the personal transformation we have worked on to help us to hear, see, answer, and make visible what The Creative Life Source is asking us to do and be in a whole sense for the greater good: FOR THE BEST OF ALL CONCERNED.
The Prophet is The Mystic, Healer, and Artist all in action. It calls for the reality of having to live what we preach integrating into our daily lives the new ways of being we have helped to unfold or walking our talk. The Prophet’s goal is an awakened society that conducts its affairs with compassion.
“May we be blessed with the love and wisdom of Divine Guidance in becoming and living the change we wish to see for the world.” CELEBRATE COMPASSION!
