The Intentional Purposeful Work of Now
A Time of Realization
Life is a continuous upward enfolding, unfolding evolving eternalizing process. An intentionally led process, having within its ongoingness, cyclical patterns of actualization and realization… patterns of realizing the potential present within the systems and structures that have been brought into existence.
From time to time a new cycle of work emerges, a cycle of potential realizing work that calls upon, requires of us – humankind – a shift, an upward evolutionary shift, in beingness and ableness. A shift in our inner processing, and in that which we seek to create, to bring into existence. A work organized shift in our processing that reflects the ongoing intent for our being authentically human, the intent for our becoming an intentional people of earth.
Now is such a time. A time of realization within the whole of life that calls for a shift in our beingness that more truly reflects the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness. And a shift in our ableness such that what we create, bring into existence, is a more authentic manifestation of the potential inherently, intentionally present within each and all. A shift in beingness and ableness that reflects both the intent for, and enables our joining in, the eternalizing of life on and through the earth work of the Source. A time of realization of potential that is now possible through the accessible presence of all-inclusive love.
The Work – the Intentional Purposeful Work of Now
Having faith in intent, faith in the intended ways of working of love and life on this earth…
We go into community to lead the creation and development of virtue sourced value adding processes…
Doing so in a way that creates cultures that work for all children in the world;
Such that the potential inherently, intentionally present within each and all can be manifested through work… through our working and living in right and good ways.
And by so doing, we join in the process of sustaining and eternalizing life on and through this earth… our common home.
Life is such, that from time to time, there is a need for an affirmative response on our part, to particular work, intentional purposeful work with regard to the emerging cycle of life. Work, an intentional purpose, that is intended to organize ourselves, such that what we create, bring into existence, not only enables our joining in the unfolding intent of now; but also, serves to ensure that what we create maintains the integrity of the intended ways of working of love and life on this earth. Intentional, purposeful work that calls for a particular nature of beingness, and ableness on our – humankind’s – part.
The Work of Now calls for a Work Organized Mind
Realizing potential, making life real, whole, fruitful and wise, calls for a work organized mind… thus, is a process that brings heart into the work, but begins with the work. We need to develop a work organized mind in the pattern of Christ. This image showed up in our processing… an image of Christ expressing the notion of “ I came to save the house of Israel,” and his mother, Mary, responding with “Work for all my children in the world.”
And so, the initial process, the ongoing process, seeks to develop a work organized mind, and an eye that can readily see work in process… intuitively, we see what is not working, and through understanding, develop ableness to see what working looks like. Intuitively we can readily see, know what is not working. It is common to see what is not working before we have developed the understanding, the seeing, to image what working would look like, and create process manifestations of right and good working. For example:
Our faith is not working when it turns us towards seeking power, political power, rather than enabling love… love, all-inclusive love, entering through us into our ways of living and working.
Our governing process is not working when it is being led by political ideologies that lack the wholeness of thought required for the work of now… which is further diminished by the absence of ethical willfulness.
Given this confirming seeing, we can gain confidence in the necessity for the shift. Which calls for us to understand how we work, experiencing and validating that.
How we work: 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, what we bring into the world.
As we turn away from problem solving and towards a work organized intentional process, we can begin, through intuitive dialoguing, to develop receptivity and willfulness towards the work… more and more willfully as we see the lack of hope – for life, for the children – in current processes; and begin to develop seeing and understanding of the here and unfolding now potential present within a work organized, intentional process
“Work for all my children in the world” is a work organized process that requires the development of a work organized mind… not unlike the bees create when those who have discovered the clover field return to the hive… thus, intentional dialoguing is in and of itself work organized… work has to be present in the room, in the processing.
The work of now emerges from the intentional, intended, unfolding of now… this is the way of the Spirit entering our processing… the process of accessing the wisdom of intent the work of now calls for… the central organizing phenomena.
And finally, remembering that it is the work of philosophy to organize mind and heart for the work … the work of now… for which the work organized living philosophy of potential is developed/ongoingly being developing.
The Work of Now calls for Community Creating the Processes for Our Becoming Intentional People of Earth
These are not ordinary times… rather, times of great hazard to life, to humankind… metanoic – think in new ways – times…
Think in ways that enable us to deal with the issue of diminishing vitality of the life processes of earth, the diminishing of humanness; not from a problem solving perspective, but rather one that seeks to realize the potential in each and every one of us… each and all…
Ways that reflect the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness… not just our humanness; not just that which a human centered perspective creates. But rather, that which requires a come from above, life of the whole perspective…
Ways that move us towards living and working in harmony with the intended ways of living and working of life and love on this earth… purposeful ways that reflect why we are here… our work and role within life – the larger community of life – within which we are members… intentionally, inseparably woven within. In good and right ways… ways that are good for the community – the whole of life – and right for humanity…
Ways that require the seeing and understanding made possible through two or more community processing… the seeing and understanding essential to our becoming intentional people of earth…
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them (MT18:20)
(Authenticity) BEING AUTHENTIC IN CHRIST. Seeking to be authentic in Christ, we can expect to experience the beatitudes (MT5:3-12). Useful to see the beatitudes as not so much a linear list, but rather a cyclical process… and a process of upward unfolding of cycles, as opposed to an event. Being authentic in Christ is not so much winning the argument as it is having love present in the process… in particular, all-inclusive love – the essence of the Christ process. If love is not present in the process, love will not be present in the outcomes.
(Vision) THE FATHER’S COMMAND IS EVERLASTING LIFE (JN12:50)... as in heaven, so also on the earth (MT6:9-13). Awakening ourselves to original intent… to the intended ways of working of love and life on this earth. Embracing the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness. Living and working in advancing humanness life nourishing ways. Creating virtue sourced, essence based, ethically – right and good – working, value adding processes – process that add value to life. Thy will being done on this earth (MT6:10) at this time.
(Change) GOOD AND RIGHT. Shifting/changing to thinking the things of God, not the things of men (MT16:23). Thinking the things of God: Good for the whole, right for the one. Good for the whole of life, right for humankind; good for the whole of humanity, right for the one; good for the community, right for the one… working ethically – in right and good ways. Reciprocally nourishing processes, e.g., bee pollinating the flower, obtaining nectar for the hive’s wellbeing, flower sustaining its process, reciprocally nourishing other creatures, and life processes… sustaining the meadow, the field. Thinking the things of man, humankind: human centered (vs. life of the whole centered)… such things as economics, work ethic, stock market, etc.
Thinking the things of God, we enable our having faith in intent, intended ways of working of life and love on this earth. Faith in intent such that if we live and work in intended ways we can earn our keep, have meaningful and productive lives. Ultimately advancing from work ethic, to working ethically – working in right and good ways, advancing humanness, nourishing life ways.
(Ideals) THE GOSPEL. Ideals, images of the ideal… the gospel given by Christ. Looking to the gospel, the teachings of Christ. Seeking to understand and embrace the four “Thou Shalls” – the all-inclusive love – Christ lifted up… the two of the previous (Love God…, Love thy neighbor…) – the going forward essence of the Old Testament – and the two Christ added (Love one another as I have loved you; Love thy enemy)… the four “Thou Shalls” emerging as all-inclusive love.
All of which calls for COMING FROM ABOVE as intended… see “The Story of Now”
The Work of Now calls for Worshiping in Spirit and Truth
We, humankind, are intended to ongoingly worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father, the Source, the Creator of the all seeks such worshiping. (JN4)
The ‘Father’s house’ is the living earth, a place of and for life, love and truth entering; not a place of merchandising, but a place for worshiping… worshiping the Father by our – humankind – being vessels for love entering life, and becoming instruments in the Father’s eternalizing life on and through the earth work… being authentic living human spiritual beings, and becoming intentional life nourishing people of earth. All of which calls for our having faith in intent – opening our hearts and minds to the Spirit ongoingly entering with come from above truth of intended ways of working of life and love.
To worship in spirit and truth, is an ongoing community process, the two or more gathering “I AM” process actualized by Christ… the intended way of worshiping the Father in spirit and truth. We – humankind – are intended to realize the process Christ actualized. Now is the time.
This is my beloved Son… Listen to him:
I am the way and the truth and the life. Follow me!
