A New World Emerging, Part Four: Homo Universalis

Aviv Shahar with Forrest Wilson

poetry of transformation

We’ve been imagining a future beyond the prevailing consciousness represented by the industrial revolution, which is losing its grip as the motivating energy driving humanity. It’s like the passing of an epoch that provided the power structures or potencies that drove the story of human progress over the past millennia.

A simple metaphor is that the car we’ve been collectively driving for hundreds of years is running out of fuel. Do we refill the tank with the same grade of fuel, create a better fuel, or discover an entirely new emerging vehicle to carry us forward?

We’ve been sensing that it’s time for the human race to get connected to something better, something higher; a whole new fuel that activates new permissions, perceptions and capabilities,

a new way of being and doing. In that sense, the new car is a metaphor or a way of describing a new model of life, and a new model of the human system itself.

It may be we are actually beginning to experience something else emerging altogether, which is a deeper, more profound, more transformative change than even represented by a new fuel or vehicle coming online.

Where and when can we see that? What part can we play? How can we collaborate? All those questions become so very important because they take the story from an imaginary theological framing into an actualized embodied experience. I get to play, I get to unlock my talent and my gift here and now with others, and we get to participate in this nursery of life.
