Throughout history, the great questions have been asked, and great research has been undertaken, always expanding the territory of the known by shining a light into the unknown. Where is that cutting edge today? And can a community of people from all over the world, each carrying their own unique journey of discovery, come together to inquire at the edge of purposeful evolution, through dialogue and interaction? We think it is possible, and we hope that you will choose to be a part of this exploration.
As we continue our discovery into the nature of humanity as a collective consciousness, we find the intuitive sense expressed by many teachers and leaders that this current time of profound change may be the culmination of a larger universal cycle of growth and evolution. Some call it a paradigm shift, a global awakening, or a fulfillment of ancient prophesies.
It can also described as part of a deep inner knowing in the human model that, as evolution continues, we get to a time when one phase or cycle or epoch reaches its fulfillment or culmination, and something new needs to begin. But rather than being a single big global event, the transition to a new cycle or epoch is a multi-layered process of renewal and upgrading.
The ongoing evolution includes a time of healing and the melting away of old patterns and mental, emotional or spiritual blockages that may have impeded our growth and progress. It’s followed by a new openness to the universal energy that brings an update and upgrade to our human faculties and technology – a new operating system.
We can hopefully be a bit more patient when the institutions of society don't change overnight. But the good news is that on an individual level, if we're doing the work wholeheartedly, the transformation can be quite rapid and is actually quite rapid for people I know who are leaning into service, as you're suggesting, by allowing the upgrade, participating in the upgrade, and being willing to learn perhaps new capacities internally and externally. It seems as if, for these people, this is a very good time to be alive.
