In the early 20th Century the teacher and spiritual leader, Ernest Holmes wrote, “We all look forward to the day when science and religion shall walk hand in hand from the visible to the invisible.” Well that day has arrived. I witness it in the talks and teachings of scientists like Bruce Lipton and visionaries like Barbara Marx Hubbard and the new science – Epigenetics, which merely means “above genetics.”
We can no longer say that we are subject to our genetics, unless we believe we are. According to this new science, simply put, we are not self-determined automotans as we were once programmed to be. We are free moving, changing Intelligence – Consciousness – whose genetics are determined by our perceptions of our environment as it plays back to us. Simply put: “It is done unto us as we believe.”
As I listened, yesterday, to scientists expound on this idea, I found myself getting more and more excited at the prospects available for all of us. We are on the precipice of a New Earth and I am grateful to be here to be part of it.
When Barbara Marx Hubbard said that she had had an experience of illumination where she realized that she was the “impulse that created the Universe” and stated “I am evolution becoming consciousness of itself for the first time,” I thought of my readings in the Science of Mind textbook, where it is stated that God could not make an automatic individual and that we are left alone here to discover ourselves.
When Pope Francis was on tour in California a little child asked him, “What did God do before he created the world?”
The Pope couldn’t answer at first, but then said – “He loved. …Before God created the world he loved…in order to share that love out of himself, God created the world.”
This is a true statement for me. I do not believe in duality, but the Principle behind this statement is my truth. This is a Universe created from Love. We define Love as the “self-givingness of the Spirit through the desire of life to express itself in terms of creation.” We are that Love, experiencing that impulse to create in every moment. The power of that desire is as strong right now. I feel it. We are conscious of it as never before. We are conscious of ourselves as creators.
As we think and perceive our world and all that is occurring right now, we have the ability to change our perception and thus change our experience. If Love backs that perception than everything changes – everything is possible. “Perfect Love casteth out all fear.”
What are you thinking about right now? What is rising up in you longing to express itself? If it is backed by that recognition of yourself as Love, everything is possible right now.
Barbara Marx Hubbard reminded me yesterday that we were the sixth species in recorded history that is on the verge of extinction. Others have gone before us and we are here now. We have the opportunity to rise above our previous history of repeated hatred, war, revenge and lack consciousness – our automaton behavior – or to embody the Principle of Epigenetics and rise above it.
I am choosing to rise above it and to only be love, beginning with myself. At our Peaceful Solutions Cafe the other night, as we brainstormed ideas for bringing more peace into the world, every finger pointed to the self. We are each responsible for the next step. “One alone in consciousness with the Infinite constitutes a complete majority.” We do not have to wait for anyone. We can start right where we are. We can rise by following our passions, using our creativity, expressing our true selves.
I am the impulse of evolution right now. Yes, I am and So are you!
