Coming from Potential… a Coming from Above Process
As above… so below
Coming from potential is a come from above intentionally led process… a two or more intentionally led community process requiring of us the taking on of a life of the whole perspective… the particular perspective required to embrace – live from, live out – the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness… an intentionally led process that, like all of life’s processes, requires systems – systemic working – to sustain its potential realizing capacity.
The particular systems required to sustain the realization of the potential present within our living human spiritual beingness are cultures that work for all children in the world…. cultures – living human created systems – that seek to enable the realization of the potential present within each and all. Cultures, living authentic cultures, that like all of life’s systems, are work organized… have particular work and shared intentional purposes that serve the larger whole (wholes) within which life operates. Wholes which themselves are created and sustained through love… all-inclusive love entering the process. At this time, love that is manifested through the compassion of equality. Compassion of equality being the particular manifestation of love that emerges, emanates, from the truth of our oneness. The truth of one Source, all else equal… a hierarchy of one. The truth of our not being the source, but rather creatures of life… not separate from life, but rather intentionally, inseparably, being woven within life. And like all of life’s creatures, having particular work and role with regard to the ongoingness, eternalizing of life on and through the earth. Earth itself being created for life to have a place to enter into the working of the universe.
At the essence of our particular work and role, is love… our being and becoming vessels for love entering into the life processes of earth. Our being vessels for that which we are not the source of, but necessary vessels for that which brings wholeness to life, wholeness to ourselves.
A vesselness that itself is formed through free will conscious conscientious choice… our exercising of that which seems to be a uniquely human capacity. Consciously exercising free will through our developing an understanding of the intended ways of working of life, and of ourselves… conscientiously managing ourselves through ensuring that our pursuits and actions reflect ethical – right and good – ways; and are truly manifestations of love – the compassion of equality – that the work of now, the work for all children in the world, calls for.
We can, with intentional orientation, and reflective processing, develop our ableness to seek the wisdom of intent, to see and understand intentional ways of working of life, and of ourselves… we can access and acquire the wisdom and understanding that ultimately makes possible the intentional wisdom led reasoning necessary for our ways to be in harmony with, enabling of, the intended ways of working of life. However, with regard to love, we look to a particular source for developing our ableness… ableness essential to exercising free will conscious conscientious choice… ableness essential to our being and becoming authentically human.
With regard to love, our vesselness for love entering the process, we look to the teachings and process of Christ. Whereas there are those who have accessed and manifested love, we have come to see Christ as the through time exemplar… both in teachings and in process. And within his teachings and process, we have come to see and understand the developmental potential present within the Thou Shalls… the potential to develop our ableness, as a community, for loving the Source, loving our neighbor, loving one another all-inclusively – as I have loved you -, and loving our enemy. Seeing within each, the potential to move towards increasing wholeness… encompassing wholeness that is actively present within and from the Source. Wholeness that is essentially present within our potential as living human spiritual beings… present but not yet realized.
Reflecting on the potential realizing path of coming from above, we can readily see and experience hope… the depth and realness of hope present within an intentionally led process. Hope for humankind, hope for the whole of life, the ongoingness of life. And emerging from this imagery is a question… a critical, perhaps the most critical question of now, “What do we put our faith in?”
Reflecting further we come to see: It is one thing to have faith… yet quite another, to put our faith in intent.
Seeing Science as a Trust Building Process for our Being Authentic and Becoming Intentional
A come from potential… come from above perspective
Reflecting on the issues facing humankind and life on this earth from a perspective of potential has brought forth some realizing of potential seeing… seeing grounded in, emerging from, essential truths:
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.
There is a Source, an intentionality, a will force behind the whole of all. An intentionality out from which emerges life and love… and intended ways of working of each.
An intentionality out from which emerges earth as a place for life to enter into the working of the universe.
We, as living human spiritual beings, enter into the purpose and process of earth through life… emerging from life, and through our being inseparably woven within life, the life processes of earth.
Love is the name we give to that which creates and sustains wholeness… wholeness within life, within ourselves. Wholeness being essential to the ongoingness of life giving, life sustaining processes, and to the ongoing working of systems and processes within life, within ourselves.
We, like all of life’s creatures, have work and role with regard to the ongoingness, the developing, the evolving, the eternalizing of life on and through this earth.
Work and role that requires we see, understand and embrace – live from, live out – the intended ways of working of life and love on this earth… and do so in a way that we embrace the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness; embrace and manifest this truth in ways that reflect and enable our being authentic, and our becoming intentional… manifesting authenticity and intentionality through living and working in intentional ways.
Reflecting then, on the intended ways of working of life, and science’s instrumentality – work and role – within an intentional context…
Life is a dynamic, dramatic process… an upward enfolding, unfolding, evolving eternalizing process… that is continuously seeking to sustain its vitality and ongoingly develop its viability through maximizing possibilities and realizing the potential of each and all.
Life organizes itself wholistically… wholes within wholes… increasingly larger wholes.
Life is systemic in its way of working… creating the systems, systemic working necessary to sustain the potential realizing capacity in particular processes.
Realizing potential occurs, is brought about, within and through processes… cyclical process within which potential is realized through reciprocally nourishing structures and structuring at the interfaces… individualized, systemic, wholistic interfaces.
We can develop some imagery, see the reciprocally nourishing structures and structuring at the interfaces through reflective, intuitive processing. For example, reflecting on, while holding in mind the wholistic ways and systemic working present within, the process of pollination. More specifically, reflecting on a hive of bees preparing for and engaging in the pollinating process… paying particular attention to the reciprocally nourishing structures and structuring that is occurring between the bee and the flower… seeing not only the particular, but also the nourishing effect on the related systems and wholes involved. Another useful example is to reflectively process the seeing and understanding that is emerging from the mycelium work. Seeing how the disciplined process of science is making visible systemic working, and reciprocally nourishing processes in ways not previously seen or understood. Revelations that not only reflect the realizable potential in science, but shift significantly previous premises and understanding.
All of which leads us to seeing science as a trust building process for our being authentic, and becoming an intentional people of earth. A process which begins with our having faith in intent… more specifically putting our faith in intent… intended ways of working of life and love on this earth. Faith and trust are complementary partners… developmentally complementary. That is, each sustains and develops the other. Thus, whereas we can image and experience the potential realization and hope present within our understanding of intentionality, and through that, seek to put our faith in intent; it is through trust – the experientially predictable and validate-able seeing and experiencing of work and results – that our faith in intent is sustained and strengthened. It is this relatedness of faith and trust, and the making visible of intended ways of working pattern of science, that brings to light the seeing of and becoming of science as a trust building process for our being authentic and becoming an intentional people of earth.
Love thy enemy… Reflecting on what has been written, has evoked some thoughts on Love thy enemy… its way of working, its necessity… that which makes it possible.
My reflections took me to Man’s history, in particular technical man and his attitude/orientation to that which we have called nature. His not uncommon seeing of nature, the manifestations of nature, as that which needed to be conquered, that which must surrender to man’s desires, be willfully molded and shaped according to our needs, wishes and desires. Wishes and desires that commonly emerged from a problem solving perspective… problems we had, problematic interference from natural processes, systems and structures. And then, the seeing of the influence, the effect, of shifting one’s perspective to a come from potential – come from above – perspective. And now seeing the possibility to love one’s enemy… to do so by making visible the intended ways of working of life on this earth, thus enabling our embracing the wholeness of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness, making possible our being authentic, becoming an intentional people of earth. Sustaining the through time realizing of our significance, through the essence of the scientific process – making visible the beauty and wisdom present within intended ways, and developing our ableness to willfully live and work in harmonious accord with that… enabling the intended ways of working of life and love on this earth through the manifesting of the whole of the truth of our intentionality… our essential reason, purpose for being created.
Oneness and Wholeness… Realizing the Potential Christ makes Possible
A come from above… coming from potential perspective
Seeing the living philosophy of potential as a process for enabling our realizing of the potential Christ makes possible through completing his work on this earth… in particular, his embedding within, making accessible to each and all, all-inclusive love entering through us into the working of the world.
The potential Christ makes possible to be realized now is Oneness and Wholeness. Oneness with the Source. Wholeness within ourselves, our communities – our living communities – as a people of life, a living people of earth. Oneness and Wholeness within the living earth, within the whole of creation.
All-inclusive love is both necessary for, and enabling of, our transcending the limitations of obedience – obedience being that which enables connectivity and right orientation (as in, “There is a Source, we are not the Source”), but is insufficient for our joining the eternalizing of life work of the Father/Creator… perfecting our work. Joining in the eternalizing of life on and through the earth is a process that calls for free will conscious conscientious choice… a whole heart and mind choice, not unlike the choice process of Mary, of Christ. One of resisting the temptations of existence, one requiring a coming from above – coming from potential – perspective… thinking not as man thinks – from existence – but rather in the come from above pattern that Christ made visible, makes possible through our embracing the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness… realizing the potential of that which is present within the intentionality of our authenticity, our being and becoming an intentional people of earth… of life. A people of and from the way, the truth, the life.
Loving thy enemy is the community process whereby, our having transcended the limitations of obedience, we move towards oneness – a unity with Source – with the whole of Creation… unity, oneness within the whole of Creation. A process of seeing that which we see as enemy, is in truth of and from the same Source… one Source of each, all and everything. Thus transcending the blindness that ego imposes upon our processes.
All of which calls for the inner organizing of our hearts and minds, the forming of community – transcending the limitations of individuality by creating that which is necessary for realizing the potential – manifesting the essence pattern of potential – present within each and all; and the intentional purpose of humanity’s creation, the essential why of our being present on this living earth: the manifestation of our intended significance within the upward enfolding unfolding evolving eternalizing of life on and through the earth. The inner organizing of heart and mind, the preparation of our instrumentality for life, and our vesselness for love entering through us into the working of the world, is the work of philosophy… a living, come from above, here and unfolding now, work organized living philosophy. A process, a living non-dogmatic philosophy, that enables the inner organizing of heart and mind such that we can exercise free will conscious conscientious choice, authentically say yes, and truly join in the work. The reconciling of issues work, the work of creating come from above virtue sourced, essence based ethically working value adding processes… all of which – like all of life’s processes – require particular natures of systems, systemic working, to sustain their potential realizing capacity… which for humankind, for the life of the whole, at this time calls for our creating cultures that work for all my children on this earth.
