Evolution Through Chaos and
Although “New Age” is very young in its reality, it was and
still is a major catalyst in the development and evolution of mankind. It has
been instrumental in moving humanity from the dark ages of religion to a more
enlightened awareness of mankind to its connection with Creator. But “New Age,”
as religion and dinosaurs, must make way for the mammals and new growth.
Three months ago I was asked to develop a training program for
our department at work. I was also asked to upgrade our existing sales Reps and
the new sales people coming into the company; new products required this change.
This change is timely and has manifested itself in a time of change and chaos.
People by nature do not like change and it is upsetting for
many. Chaos is the mark of change. Today companies are struggling to survive and
some are disappearing. Jobs are being lost as companies restructure and lay off
their employees. Change is occurring everywhere and none are immune from it.
But, change is an opportunity for growth. As the dinosaurs (old established
corporations) are replaced by young, hungry companies and workers; the changes
will be viewed as beneficial by future generations.
The change that is occurring now is not about companies,
countries or people. It is about relationships; relationships are changing. All
things in the physical world are about relationships between one thing or
another—people, places and things. There is nothing that is impervious to
change—it is the one and only constant in the universe.
A major change will occur in this century and within the next
few years. For those who are more sensitive to these changes; you are already
feeling them at home, and in personal relationships outside the home and at
I have been feeling restless for several years knowing that
something is happening, but not being able to put my finger on it. I have
written and published internationally, two books as well as more than 500
articles on “New Age” which are distributed worldwide over the internet.
Three months ago when I received my promotion to trainer, I
stopped writing. I have ignored my web sites and isolated myself from my own
writing. The truth is I have moved on or matured past them.
Everything is as an echo in a pail. You write, you talk, you
teach and it keeps coming back to you. It’s no longer going anywhere, and I have
to look at it for what it is; it’s a step that is completed and my right foot is
already in motion, ready to move forward.
The awareness that “New Age” has brought forward was that “we
are all one”, that we are the creator of all that we experience. There is no
“God Like” creator sitting in a place called Heaven; Angry, Vengeful, Punishing
or even Benevolent. There is no chosen few and all are equal and connected.
Although “New Age” may be the stepping stone that takes us to
the next realm of existence, it is still extremely limited in its scope or
understanding of where the next step will take us or what it actually is.
Language is the greatest hindrance to understanding when we
try to teach or pass on our awareness. “New Age” still uses religious terms to
identify with the listener and move him to a new awareness. However, the words
that we use tell others where we are, and they limit us. In an effort not to
alienate ourselves, we use language to bridge the gap. But the language can
never fully explain what the change will actually be. The change can best be
experienced as a feeling where no words are spoken. You cannot explain the taste
of chocolate; it must be experienced.
As “New Age’ writers, we can only image what the next
experience will be. In my experience, our current vision of an afterlife or
passing, only goes as far as the next emanation. We are far greater than what
“Religion” or “New Age” has taught us and we are not limited in any way. The
next great step in evolution will not be as humble as we have experienced over
our sojourn on this planet. There are infinite realms of existence, but only one
Although we may choose to remain in the next realm just for
the experience; we will consciously become aware of our choice and our
alternatives to other existences. But the real purpose of what we will
experience will not actually be appreciated until we discover our true nature;
no matter how many realms we experience. No matter how many times we live and
die. As long as we keep passing responsibility for our existence on to someone
or something else, we will never know our true nature. We will never know
ourselves as “life” as the only thing that really exists; but as an effect or
consequence of it.
“New Age” may correctly assume the essence of our true nature,
but in itself it does not own up and say exactly what it is. It has not yet
reached a comfortable place in time where it can give its final declaration—that
it is properly “this” or “that.” Very much like religion, it does not take you
to your final resting place—it is just another step on an endless path of
awareness. However, the two are not
mutually exclusive, and as beings of consciousness we can be aware of our true
nature and choose not to experience it, as we have done for time immortal. We
can experience the one, experiencing all other things and nothing at the same
time. Within that awareness is the experience of being eternal and perpetual.
To experience the unlimited experience of being, we must
include in our awareness the one that is really experiencing; the observer as
well as the observed. Without the full knowledge or experience of both at the
very least, it is an unfulfilled experience. To be aware of being asleep you
must experience both being awake and asleep at the same time. At that time you
will know the true experience of your conscious thought.
To be alive and to have the convenience of forgetting what we
were before or what are true nature is, is not the full experience of self
realization or recreation. The full nature is to know both simultaneously. Only
at that time can we appreciate our true nature.
The relational changes that we are currently feeling will
eventually manifest into an awareness of true consciousness.
It’s not the end of anything, but the beginning of an
awareness of consciousness, experiencing. Because time does not really exist:
all things shall remain in the collective consciousness as experienced or being
experienced. Our awareness of ourselves is a product of the process of the
manifestation of consciousness that we incorrectly assume is outside ourselves.
We are neither the beginning nor the end. We are the process itself—we are
consciousness in motion.
We are consciousness watching ourselves in a mirror watching
ourselves in a mirror. Every thought we have manifested into action is reflected
back to us. We are the observer and the observed existing in the same time and
space—there is nothing else.
Our true nature does not evolve; it is static. It is within
the awareness of knowing itself, that it experiences evolution. It is very much
like a baby that discovers its fingers, toes and other body parts. It
understands itself as complete in its own experience. It forgets its true
identity as spirit or consciousness in body form, and assumes a temporary
physical experience with purpose. But once again, this is not a complete
experience. The complete experience would be within an awareness of all things
