The Ageless Wisdom explains that the soul is in constant meditation – patiently watching and waiting for signs of response from its earthly counterpart. The power and beauty of the Soul is live-streaming its radiant message of new possibilities 24×7 but sadly many are totally unaware that their essential nature is calling and therefore do not register these inner signals of renewal and hope.
The first order of business is to establish a living link between the soul and the personality – a stable connection with sufficient bandwidth to download the note of the anima as it broadcasts to the world. The building of this bridge between ‘heaven and earth’ is accomplished by opening the heart and by connecting the lower and higher mind to allow an intuitive flow of wisdom into our lives.
The New Story seeking to be born on Earth of a better and brighter future that is being beamed from the soul of humanity can only be fulfilled to the degree that it is registered and articulated in everyday life. Each person is a creator and so whatever story we tell ourselves, becomes the sphere of reality in which we ‘live and move and have our being’. This personal story reflects our world-view and is the lens through which we take in data from the environment, draw conclusions and respond. We engage the world in accordance with the story we believe to be true.
In the writing of a new story it would be advisable to inquire whether we are filling our minds with visions of fiery hope or allowing images of fear and doubt to condition and ultimately sabotage our lives.
Let me report on a survey conducted over the past several years. I travel extensively and find myself spending many hours aloft each month with a cross-section of humanity. My observations in wandering the aisles of airplanes and noting what in-flight movies are being watched reveals that a preponderance of the material is steeped in violence and carries a dystopian undertone that paints a dire and disturbing picture of the future.
The phantasms portrayed on the screens are products of ‘special effects’ departments that use Computer Generated Images (CGI) to bring to life vivid ideas held within the mind of the script-writer and movie director. Many of these ideas are riddled with fear and despair and as we sit and imbibe these images on both the big and small screen, our lives are imprinted and conditioned by them.
The New Story however, does not depend on Computer Generated Images – it calls instead for Soul Generated Images (SGI) to shape new light-filled possibilities that are unfettered and free from fear, prejudice and other limitations of the past.
This begs the question: “Who is actually writing the script and directing the movie in which we have been cast?”
As Shakespeare commented:
All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
(As You Like It, spoken by Jaques)
Life can be likened to a divine ‘improvisation theater’ performance in which we, as characters, act our appointed role from the inside out. Life is most definitely not a spectator sport. We are not incarnated on earth to watch movies – we are here as members of the grand ensemble of Humanity to star in the New Story and to play our respective parts from the heart. The part we play has been cast by the soul. The soul is also co-writing and co-directing the New Story along with the scriptwriters of the spiritual realms who over-light and guide its production.
The creative impulse behind any culture or civilization wave is its mythos – the seed-atom containing the promise for that particular epoch in the continuous pageant of human evolution. Before each new cultural wave breaks on the shore of human consciousness, there is great confusion and chaos as time-honored social and philosophical models that no longer serve begin to crumble and lose their integrity. The new impulse, like a giant tuning fork, sounds its note – inviting a resonant response.
New stories, to be truly new, must be born out of ‘new thinking’ as the new is not simply a presentation of the old that has been re-painted and polished. New wine needs new bottles. This is the call of our times.
We need a new mythos: a new creation story to inspire and guide us through the labor pains of the coming birth. The script of the New Story is also referred to as the Divine Plan.
The work of Meditation Mount is to participate in crafting this story and birthing a new civilization based on the qualities of the Soul. Creative Meditation is one way in which we can hone our craft as co-creators, co-directors and fellow actors in this great unfolding spectacle.
The new collective narrative is shaped using the tools of Creative Meditation: such as Imagination, Affirmation, Receptive and Reflective meditation, Concentration and Telepathic Radiation or Blessing. And the solid foundation, upon which this preferred future-oriented story stands, are the three spiritual Principles of Essential Divinity – affirming the sacredness of all Creation; Goodwill – acknowledging the inherent goodness of the soul of humanity as a fount of love and Unanimity – the scientific reality of the interdependency and complete coherence of Life.
These founding Principles are anchored in the pragmatism of daily life through the three Pathways (aka Laws) of Spiritual Approach – the upward path of striving to our highest potential, Right Human Relations – the natural urge of the soul to connect and commune respectfully with all life and Group Endeavor – the honoring of our interdependency through concerted and wholehearted efforts in support of the Common Good.
As the old story fades and falls away, the Soul of Humanity calls out for us to rise together and, in creative partnership with the Subtle Realms, to participate in co-authoring a story that at each turn of the spiral reveals new and richer expressions of Truth, Goodness and Beauty. The building of a New Civilization infused with the qualities of the Soul is an artistic endeavor of the highest order that may take several hundreds or thousands of years to reach its full flowering. However, the time to begin writing and acting our part in the emerging new story is right now.
