THE LIVING PHILOSOPHY OF POTENTIAL… a come from above, work organized philosophy

Creating Cultures that Work for All Children in the World

Dear Friends,

What is often lost, left out, in the cultural patterns and dynamics of today… regardless of the source – be it sourced in the voices of politics, religion, science, etc. -; what is left out, not present in their process, is this unchanging reality:

The voice of the children:  Ultimately, the health and wellbeing of humanity, of our children, each and all the children… our children, our children’s children… is inseparably woven, in reciprocally nourishing ways, within the ongoing vitality and viability of the life processes of this earth.

Speaking for this earth:  Ultimately, the ongoing vitality and viability of the life processes and systems of this earth are inseparably woven, in reciprocally nourishing ways, within that which sustains and enables the health and wellbeing of each and all of our children.

Both of which require cultures that work for all children in the world…

Cultures that work in ways that advance humanness, reciprocally nourish life… and seek to realize the potential inherently present within each and all.  In particular, our potential to be authentically human, to be and become an intentional people of earth…

Cultures that believe in the truth of our livingness. Coming from below, seeing is believing. Coming from above, believing is seeing – one needs to believe before one can see. Unless we believe, embrace this truth of our livingness, the intended ongoingness of life, we cannot see.  But if we believe, we can see, embrace – develop understanding, organize heart and mind for the work of now – and take up the work. 

We can take up the culture creating work because that which is needed is now in place… present within the living – open to ever increasing wholeness, and development – philosophy of potential… the orientation, the seeing, the intentional processing…. 

All for now, Terry & Sandra

The living philosophy of potential is a come from above, work organized philosophy…

Being Work Organized

Being work organized comes from our understanding the truth of our – as living human spiritual beings – way of working:

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… be it thought, word, deed or material manifestations.

At this time, it is the work of philosophy, in particular the work of the living philosophy of potential, to innerly organize heart and mind for the work of now… the regenerative work of now:

The creation of cultures that work for all children in the world…each and every one.

…regenerative work that requires a regeneration of where we come from… a coming from above, life of the whole perspective, organized by the intended ways of working of life and love on this earth.  Life and love not being separate streams of intent, but rather being inseparably bound.

Coming from Above

Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, if one is not generated from above, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.” (JN3:3)

Seeing the Kingdom of God… Beauty and Wisdom

BEAUTY   Innerly absorbing and experiencing the beauty present within the process… within that which is unfolding before us. Sustaining our attentiveness through an ever-deepening appreciation… a gratefulness for our being present to this moment, that opens us to being innerly organized in ways that reflect the truth of our livingness.  Awakening us to the truth of our livingness, and to the realness of there being a Source, a willfulness, a force, beyond ourselves -something greater than ourselves – at work here.  A oneness of and with the Source.  All of which works to create within us, the willful beingness to seek to be in harmony, non-disturbing harmony, with intended ways.

WISDOM   The openness and seeking present within the willful beingness of the beauty processing, creates within us, the potential for developing the eye that sees the patterns of intentionality present within the process – the patterns and systemic working present within the wholeness, the whole within which the process thrives.  A systemic seeing that makes visible, in an inspiriting way, the reciprocally nourishing character present within the process.  A seeing and understanding that not only enables us to be in harmony with life; but also enables our living and working in life nourishing ways… ways that reflect the whole of the truth of our living human spiritual beingness.  And thus, through our willful beingness, our intentional seeing, we can create and bring into our community processes, the intentional presence so necessary to the work of now.

Joining the Unfolding Process… Liberation and Eternalization 

LIBERATION   Through intentional community processing, our being open to and ongoingly led by wisdom, the wisdom of intent; we unbind, free ourselves from serving the needs and impulses of ego-led desires and pursuits.  Freeing ourselves such that we can turn towards love, love entering through us into the working of the world; and away from power, greed-driven power.  And by so doing, live and work in right and good ways… ways intentionally purposeful, meaningful for each and all.

ETERNALIZATION   A potential realizing process… an ongoing yessing to the work of now – the spirit manifesting, called-work-of-now way of realizing the potential inherently present within each and all.  A manifesting of our spirit, a perfecting of the work we are given way of joining in… of our being inseparably woven within the ongoing upward enfolding eternalizing of life on and through the earth work of the Father, the Creator, the ultimate Source of all.

Embracing Essential Truths of Now

All that is written here emerges from and is organized by our developing understanding of essential truths. Truths essential to the here and unfolding now. Shared truths. Truths of significance to the whole of life, to the whole of humanity, to all children in the world… 

ONE SOURCE OF EACH AND ALL   To begin… There is a Source of each and all… a Source – one and the same Source – of each, all and everything. One Source, an intentionality, a will force behind the whole of all. An intentionality out from which emerges life and love – life and love, intended ways of working of each and of both…. 

EACH AND ALL HAVE WORK OF SIGNIFICANCE   Within and through this intentionality, we, humankind, enter into the life processes of earth, entering into life as living human spiritual beings. Enter as a people, who, like all of life’s creatures, have work and role with regard to the ongoingness of life. Work of significance to the enfolding, unfolding, eternalizing of life on and through the earth… 

LOVE IN THE PROCESS   The greatest truth of now, perhaps ever and always, is: If love is not present in the process, love will not be present in the outcomes. Love being the name and the experience of that which brings wholeness to ourselves, to life, and to humanity… to the whole of life, the whole of humankind. Perhaps uniquely human is the intent for love to enter through us into the working of the world. And, in particular at this time, love being manifested as the compassion of equality… 

And finally, given the centrality of work – virtue sourced, value adding work – to our processing; our developing an understanding of how we – humankind – work is both critical and required. Understanding how we work is both necessary for our taking up the called work of now – creating cultures that work for all the children in the world -, and for the development and exercising of free will conscientious conscious choice. The nature of choosing essential to our being and becoming authentic – to our being and becoming as intended: fully, truly, wholly human… 

HOW WE WORK  How we, humankind, 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 existence. 

Welcome to the path of potential.
