Transcending divisiveness: A process of moving towards wholeness; away from the destructive evilness present within the divisiveness of our time. A moving towards process that begins with, is anchored in, the truth of our oneness; the shared truth of one Source of each and all – the whole of all. A moving towards wholeness which itself is created and sustained by love, love entering the process… by, at this time, the all-inclusive love of the Source entering through us into the working of earthly life. Through all-inclusive love entering and being manifested – lived out – as the compassion of equality. A manifestation of the truth of one Source, all else equal… a hierarchy of one.
What is written here, the thoughts and understanding that follow, are not theological, nor ideological, but rather emerge from and are organized within heart and mind by philosophy… a particular philosophy. A come from above, work organized, essence based philosophy. A living philosophy of potential that looks to intuition – the intuition of wholeness (as opposed to reasoned interpretation) – and to reflective processing, to access wisdom – the wisdom of intent, the truths essential to the here and unfolding now. A seeing and understanding that is deepened, developed and made practice-able through reflective processing, in particular, through two or more intentional dialoguing. A reflective process of seeking essential understanding with regard to particular work; and ways open to love entering through us.
Whereas, this is philosophy, not theology; it is useful to understand that behind theology is an active organizing presence of philosophy. We, for example, can readily see, even today, the influence of Greek and Roman philosophy and their cultural manifestations in the forming of what became Christian religion, Christian theology(ies). And similarly, we can see the active presence of philosophy in science, the other domain of reason. A useful and necessary understanding, in that love – that which creates and sustains the wholeness necessary to transcend divisiveness -, is also present, often a central organizing notion, within many, if not all religions… religions sourced in existence based theologies. Theologies and religions that often share a hereafter, eternal reward aim… an aim achieved by particular earthly behaviors.
The living philosophy of potential neither seeks to, nor in reality diminishes, essential truths present within theologies; but rather through its here and unfolding now focus, seeks to enable the creating of cultures that work for all children in the world. Cultures that seek to enable the realization of the potential inherently present within each and all… seeking to enable the manifesting and living out of the essence, the gift of each and all. Cultures that enable our living and working in intentional – right and good – ethical ways… ways in harmony with the intended ways of working of life and love on this earth. Ways that enable our taking up, saying yes to, our work, our joining in the ongoing, enfolding, unfolding, eternalizing of life on and through this earth. And finally, there lies within the living philosophy of potential a premise. That being: If our here and unfolding now ways of living and working both reflect, and are in harmony with, the intended ways of working of life and love on this earth… and thus a manifestation of our essential reason for being created, a manifestation of our intended vesselness for love entering, and of our significance with regard to the ongoingness of life; then that which follows our passing will be as intended.
Holding this perspective in mind, we then move from essential oneness to love. The love that creates and sustains the necessary and intentional wholeness… that which transcending the destructive divisiveness of our time calls for and requires. Whereas there are many examples of people and thought bases that manifest love, we have come to see and understand Christ as the exemplar with regard to the nature of work required of us, to be and become vessels for love, the all-inclusive love of the Source, entering into the working of the world. Thus, our pursuit, our seeking to see and understand the patterns, process and essence of Christ and his teachings. The essential truths critical to the here and unfolding now.
The Ongoing Work of Transcending Divisiveness
Reflective processing, intentional dialoguing and prayerful questioning have led to seeing the critical ongoing inner work of transcending divisiveness. Divisiveness being truly an evil that keeps us from returning to the intent of the Source of all… ever since the beginning. Divisiveness producing and sustaining our separation from the Source… and from the love, life and truth emanating from the Source. Quite cunning that divisiveness was never (as recollected) one of the vices lifted up in the Western religious history… surely not “on the radar” because leaving the Garden was choosing the reasoning mind of existence, versus wisdom, to lead our thinking, and extracting from, dominion over life, versus harmonizing with the intended ways of life, as our way of working. Declaring divisiveness an evil would end the game. Reflecting on divisiveness led to seeing the time of humanity after the Garden: obedience; salvation; becoming; intentionality…
OBEDIENCE (the time of commands and prophesies)
After the Garden, was a time of commands, with the purpose of putting in place sufficient obedience to keep humanity from destroying ourselves while being given, through the prophets, the image of salvation, that our return to good graces with the Source would become possible. The prophesies also being a way of preparing the messiah who was to come, to make real the salvation process. This was the time of our being disconnected from the Source with the exception of the necessary direct from-above interventions. After which, the journey of return to the Garden called for our transcending divisiveness.
SALVATION (this is what was unfolding then)
The divisiveness that blocks LOVE entering… the divisiveness then, was that we left the Garden, we left the intent of the Source… and at the time of Christ, most significantly, divisiveness sustained by the structure and structuring of hierarchies burdening the people with more and more laws… manmade laws that stood between God and the people, laws that separated people from God based on their existential conditions, calling for community shunning, even killing, if disobeyed. Hence the essential conscience plank of then, “Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone.” Brilliant, in that once again, the hierarchies were trying to get an answer that would justify Christ being condemned… and his answer confronting the truth of the artificial world of their making. The reconnection to the Source called for love once again flowing from the Father into humankind, and returning to the Father… love that makes possible answering Yes to Thy Will in the face of manmade consequences… love that leads to the ultimate of humanness. Christ was pure process… no structures or structuring… and he developed his disciples so that they could go to all nations, all peoples and give them the good news of the gospel: you are loved by the Source of all; manmade structures and structuring cannot block you from the love of the Source, the Father of all. And, if you change your heart and mind, want to be made whole, and have faith, you will be forgiven for previous transgressions.
BECOMING (this is what is unfolding now)
Unfolding now is divisiveness between people and communities of people. Image single persons and groups – any person or group we find ourselves personifying as the enemy in order to achieve our goals. The people all having rocks in their hands. They personify any group we have to motivate to pick up the rock to stone the perceived enemy. Hence the conscience plank of now: “If love is not present in the process, love will not be present in the outcome.” Divisiveness blocks “Love one another.” The reasoning mind being misused to create cultures that serve self and existence, cultures that call for aligning oneself with the ideologies of individuals, groups, organizations, religions, etc. This tribalistic way, present since our leaving the Garden, has now created the structures and structuring that, through providing previously determined tribe-centered answers to all questions of significance, and by silencing intuition of wholeness, are producing a complete absence of free will conscious conscientious choice, and from-above wisdom – TRUTH – leading our thinking. The wisdom essential to our ableness, in community with others, to take a role in the Father’s intended ways of life and love is now absent from our thinking. And the divisiveness and fanning the fires of divisiveness – arguing, hating, fighting, killing, etc. – consuming our lives and our ways of thinking, living and working.
Now called for is the community ableness to come from above, with all-inclusive love in our process, to see intended ways of working of life, to hear intended ways of working of love… and the will to answer Yes to the from-above seeing and hearing… the ableness to become authentic living human spiritual beings.
Now is the time of the Spirit… the time of potential… the time of embedded essence being seen and manifested. All beginning with the love in the process conscience maintainer while working for all children in the world. Leading the creation of processes beginning with from-above essence by entering into ongoing dialoguing with the intent of accessing from-above seeing of essence, potential embedded within… and taking up work essential to realizing that potential.
Salvation actualized the Thou Shalls – Thou shall love God; love your neighbor; love one another, love your enemy. Becoming realizes the potential in the Thou Shalls… the potential to transcend tribal egos (ideological attachments) such that we, in oneness, can access the will to answer Yes to the Father’s intended ways of working of life and love.
The time of becoming being the second phase of the time of Christ – the time of the Spirit – the come from above time… the time of transcending the tribal ego. Community is the smallest whole… compassionately working community. The ego work of this time of becoming being that of shedding the powers of tribalism over our hearts and minds. The ego work of salvation being that of shedding artificial manmade barriers to accessing the love of the Source. The time of intentionality calls for shedding our – humankind’s – false dominion over life…
INTENTIONALITY (shedding our false dominion over life)
Following our having developed the ableness to come together as a compassionate community, leading our thinking with from-above wisdom; the ego work becomes that of shedding our false dominion over LIFE, and embracing intentionality… intended ways of working of life. The divisive evil being our creating structures and structuring that uphold our separateness from life… that which sustains our disconnection from life, the imagined and false separation of humankind and life.
Leaving the Garden, we left Love, we left the wisdom of Truth, and we left Life. We rejected the wisdom that had guided our intended ways of living and working so that we would live and work in harmony, joining the Father’s everlasting life on this earth work. Here is the last and the most tragic stronghold of divisiveness… the greatest of the greatest of evils… the evil of destroying the intended ongoing creation – life unfolding – of the living earth… essential to the Father’s everlasting life on earth intent for the Universe.
The clarity of this is essential in this time of becoming, so that we – humankind – who seek to free ourselves from the clutches of divisiveness, never forget where we are heading… the work for which we were and are being created. The time of intentionality which is to come must be understood as we work to become authentic living human spiritual beings. We must always remember, a shift in, the advancing of our humanness, is of value to the Source of creation when it leads to our yessing Thy Will – everlasting life – being done on this earth… leads to our embracing our “pollinating” work, reciprocally nourishing the life processes of earth.
Divisiveness, powering over life… the evilness that stands in the way, willfully interferes with the intended ways of working of life on this earth… standing in the way of our awakening to the truth of our being created intended members of living earth, having work and role in the intended ongoing upwardly enfolding unfolding of life. What is that which stands between us and life? …the manmade structures/structuring that work to gain power over life, over the whole world? …the power gaining which ultimately destroys life and humankind along with? Intuitively, roboticism, the total separation of ourselves from the living world of intent, an artificial life totally from the world of our making, seems key to the evil of divisiveness taking power over living earth… ultimately separating earth from the Source of the all.
Not listening to the children crying out, “Stop the war of for and against!” and “Who will speak for living earth?!” Silencing the children from the wisdom they speak, is already taking place… and the roboticism well on its way… relinquishing our intended community role in developing the children, in ways sourced in all-inclusive love, with wisdom leading thinking… losing sight of the truth of embedded essence – the essence within each child and within all children, the essence of core community processes such as educating, the essence of authentic humanness, the essence virtue of the particular land we call home, etc.
Christ told us, we would do greater than his miracles. Speaking to the miracles that take place when we come together in community – two or more gathering – in the name of all-inclusive love entering, with the aim of working for all children in the world, and opening ourselves to come from above wisdom, ongoingly answering Yes to the wisdom we are given leading our thinking. Christ told us this (we would do greater than his miracles) while teaching during the time of salvation… preparing us for what must come in the time of becoming. In the same way, during the time of becoming, we are being called to always make visible the intentional work to come. Embracing the essence of the land, as the living philosophy of our community, being a critical beginning… beginning our process of becoming a virtue sourced essence based people living in harmony with the life processes of earth.

The divisive character of our cultural patterns brings into our processes an evilness that is not inherently, intentionally present within us… thus not a reflection of who we truly are, nor who we are intended to be. Not a reflection of our intended living human spiritual beingness.
