Becoming Authentic… Embracing the Truth of our Living Human Spiritual Beingness
The Perpetual and the Prevailing Way of Truth
Truth is a cyclical upward enfolding process of moving towards a more whole, more complete manifestation of intentionality…
A way of truth is one where the essence of the previous cycle is enfolded within the emerging evolutionary cycle of intentionality.
Ongoingly present, within each cycle, that which sustains the ongoing upward enfolding, unfolding, evolving – willful – manifestation of intent, is this perpetual truth:
If love is not present within the process, love will not be present within the outcome.
That which initiates and organizes a particular cycle is a prevailing truth… a truth that is to prevail, prevail over… to prevail over the particular cycle.
A perpetual truth and a prevailing truth, a wholeness of truth that we are intended to be open to… to experience, to embrace, to evolve from, in the direction of increasing consciousness, increasing conscientiousness. Evolve such that we can live and work in right and good ways… intentionally ethical ways. Evolve such that we can join in the work, the eternalizing of life on and through the earth work… the essential purpose of earth. The prevailing truth of now, that which we are to fully embrace, live from, live out, is…
The truth of our living human spiritual beingness.
We can see the way, the process, the pattern of truth through reflecting on the truth of Christ. See this in the ever presence of the perpetual truth of love… in particular the all-inclusive love that Christ, through completing his work on earth, embedded within the life processes of earth… thus making it accessible to each and all. We can see present in his statement, I am the way and the truth and the life, the initiating, organizing character of prevailing truth… the truth that reflects the completing, the fulfilling, of the previous; and the initiation of a new cycle. Seeing the enfolding of the essence of the previous – Love God, Love thy Neighbor – emerging as a more whole, more complete, more inclusive manifestation of intent in Love God, Love thy neighbor, Love one another as I have loved you, Love thy enemy… and seeing within that, how our fully embracing the whole of this perpetual truth would enable the advance in consciousness, conscientiousness, the ongoing upward enfolding unfolding evolving eternalizing of life on and through the earth would require of us.
And now, through the embracing of the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness… through our saying yes to the prevailing truth of now, we begin the fulfilling and completing of that which Christ has actualized, made real. And, by so doing, making possible the realizing of potential present, inherently, intentionally present within us; but yet to be manifested. A realizing of potential that calls upon us to embrace, in the pattern of Christ, the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness… the prevailing truth of now… the living out and from the wholeness of truth which the reconciling of the issues facing humankind and life on this earth demand. All of which, like is true within life, within ourselves, becomes possible when the all-inclusive love of the Source is actively present within our ways of living, of working, and within the working of cultures we create.
The Mission, the Intentional Purpose of Christ
The mission, the intentional purpose of Christ, was love… embedding within the essence of our humanness, the ableness to be a vessel for love to enter into the life processes of earth. Love – all-inclusive love – the love that makes possible the realizing of the potential of each and all – of ourselves, the whole of life…
And to do so in a way that completes the work, the original intent of the Father – the One who sent him. A way, a process that establishes a pattern of humility – humbleness… a way we can, with serious intent, follow…. as a person, as a community, as a people of earth…
Such that we can transcend the limitations of our human nature (animalness, sinfulness, egoism, seeking power over, and so forth) and become as intended – authentically human… fully, truly, wholey, intentionally human… be and become as intended, be and become a vessel for all-inclusive love entering the working of the world – our world, the living earth. And such that we can, as he did, join in – become an instrument for – the eternalizing of life on and through the living earth work of the Father… the Father, the Creator, the Great Spirit, the Source – the Source of truth, love, life and good… the common Source of each and all, of the whole of creation. All such that we can live and work in congruent harmony with intent – original intent – the intentional ways of living and working on this earth – the common home of each and all, the whole of life.
Forgiveness, redemption, salvation were the means, not the mission, not the intentional purpose of Christ. Somewhere along the way, we traded love and the way, for power, power over… over others – fellow humans, fellow creatures of life… and over the life processes of earth…. ego-led pursuits. Organizing around ego – the illusions and desires of ego… ultimately turning us back towards human nature, a problem-solving perspective, the establishing of false hierarchies… losing sight of and connection with the truth: only the Source is greater.
Now is the time of potential… the time of realizing the potential Christ makes possible through completing his work on this earth… a time for saying “Yes” to called work, our intentional work… the called work of now: creating a culture that works for all children in the world. A time for realizing the potential present within our having been created as living human spiritual beings. A time for becoming a vessel for love entering into the processes of life – our life, the whole of life. A time for joining in the eternalizing of life on and through the earth work of the Father… the work that lies within the intentional purpose of earth being created.
Perhaps and hopefully what has been written here is an angst free – free enough at least – expression of what we have been given, come to understand… one that is whole enough to go into community and begin leading the creation of value adding processes… taking up the called work of now: becoming a vessel for all-inclusive love entering such that we can authentically begin creating a culture that works for all children in the world… become an intentional people of earth, joining in the eternalizing of life work of the Father.
The Work, Our Work, the Called Work of Now
Given the work, the called work of now – creating a culture that works for all children in the world, a culture that seeks to organize itself in ways that realize the potential of each and all – we have come to understand the need for a philosophy that is whole enough, complete enough, and alive enough for this work. The living – developing, evolving – philosophy of coming from potential is emerging… a here and unfolding now living philosophy that is grounded in intentionality – intended ways of living and working on this earth – and in a clear understanding that if love is not present in the process, love will not be present in the outcomes… in what we create, in what we bring into existence.
The living philosophy of potential is a work-organized philosophy that is guided by how we, as living human spiritual beings, work. In particular, the perspective we hold, where we start our thinking from, determines the path we take, what we move towards, what we move away from, and ultimately what we create – bring into existence. And too, the understanding that at this time, community – two or more gathered – is the smallest whole. Its focus is the seeing and understanding of process… seeing, understanding and bringing into being intentional – advancing humanness, nourishing life – ways of living and working on this earth. All of which requires our – as a person, as a community – developing the heart and mind for the work now before us: our becoming an intentional people of earth – vessels for love entering the life processes of earth, instruments for the ongoing eternalizing of life on and through this earth. The living philosophy of coming from potential holds within, the aim of realizing the potential inherently present within our humanness… the potential Christ makes possible by completing his work – his mission, his intentional purpose – on this earth… the potential to return to the path and ways of original intent… the potential, through all-inclusive love entering, to create harmonious congruence – oneness and wholeness without loss of individual uniqueness – with the intent of the Source… the common, the one and the same Source of each and all, the whole of creation.
Completing the Work of the Father
I left the camper before sunrise and walked out into the desert, eventually returning to the oasis where we were camped. And along the way…
I started to see that the recent writing could be titled, “The Work, Our Work, the Called Work of Now,” which brought forth some thoughts about our work – making visible the path of potential… the path of original intent… our work as living human spiritual beings…
And this followed… Christ came to complete the work of the Father… he came to embed love within the essence of humanity, within our humanness. Christ’s process was forgiveness, redemption and salvation… and through resurrection – completing the cycle of work of becoming fully and truly human – returning… realizing oneness with the Father…
And thus… We are now being called to realize the potential Christ makes possible through completing his work on this earth. Beginning with a “Yes” in the manner of Mary, our process is to work for all children in the world… create a culture that works for all children in the world… a culture that seeks to organize itself in ways that realize the potential present within each and all… the whole of life
And, while it has been long understood that love was the process through which one could realize union with God; at this time, what is being called for is an evolutionary shift within this truth. What is seeking to unfold now is the through love – through all-inclusive love in the process – realization of the union of humanity and the whole of life with the Source… an intentional uniting – a oneness and wholeness – with the Source of each and all, the whole of life. For, as we have wandered off the path of intent, we are more and more taking the whole of life with us… towards the nonintentional, artificial path and world of our making. Thus, the particular work: working for all children in the world, creating a culture that seeks to realize the potential present within each and all, within the whole of life… and the need for community being the smallest whole… the particular work and community processing that brings new life to faith, hope and love… to our having faith in intent… to our putting our faith in intended ways of living and working on this earth… to our becoming a vessel for all-inclusive love entering into the life processes of earth… and the presence of real hope for humanity and the whole of life through our becoming an instrument for – our joining in – the eternalizing of life on and through the earth work of the Father, the Creator, the Source of the all.
After returning to the camp, I could see the repeated pattern… unfulfilled original intent – man leaves the garden prematurely. Christ comes to complete the work of the Father – love now inherently present within humanness, within human essence; a potential yet to be realized… becoming realized through our/humankind working for all children in the world. Thus, that which became possible through Mary’s “Yes,” begins to become possible through our “Yes”… yes to our vesselness, to our instrumentality, to the called work of now.
