I am learning a new language, you could say, as I go deeper into my four year ministry about Sacred Science. I always spoke to the metaphysics, and universality of the human psyche and the wonders of creation from the very beginning of my first ministry with the Universal Brotherhood Movement, which began in 1996; and before that as a Mystic interacting with the public, beginning in 1990. I have not been a stranger to the many paths and teachings that encouraged us all to go inward in order to better understand the outward expression of God, made manifest.
During the end of the 1980s, like so many others, I began to feel the shift of consciousness calling to something deep within my Soul and Cosmic Heart. During the 1990s, I began to explore the Mystic side of my nature and what I discovered was so exciting that I dedicated the rest of my life to becoming whomever this new version of me was going to reveal. Mind you, there has never been any doubt that I am not alone. We are a movement, and I always knew that someday I would catch up to the rest of my group. Isn’t life wonderful in that way?
We start out alone, out of our mother’s womb, then we connect with our birth family. From there we establish relationships with our interconnected family; school friends, teachers we admire, camp friends, or church friends. Further along our life path we start to form professional connections, and spiritual connections, then sometime in between these other interconnected relationships, we form romantic connections. We begin to create a personalized version of Oneness that circles around us, one that is not connected by time because time is not important. When we see our people it is like we have not been away from them for very long and we pick up right where we left off. They are, after all, our people; we are connected.
The larger version of a Oneness connection is normally possible when we discover a cause, or belief that we are passionate about, and we discover that we are anxious to model change in the world that will bring a benefit to the majority of humankind. Our eyes have opened to “we”-consciousness, because we have seen suffering, and it has connected to us personally in a way we did not know it could.
This is what happened to me when I got mad at God one day because I realized that its children will never make peace simply because their God Story forbids it. Those who do not believe in God aren’t a large enough percentage, and have little incentive to keep the religious fanatics from destroying the world. Their egos are looking for glory, but what glory is there if no one is left to admire them?
I have participated in Inter-faith discussions, and I have felt good about the people participating with me, and yet in my deepest heart I also know that their congregants are not going to change enough this year to tip the balance. We are mostly working from the old creation story, and it is that story which keeps us from being brothers and sisters. Sacred Science is a new creation story. Say it with me? Sacred Science is a new creation story.
This is why I enjoy using Sacred Science as the beginning point for a conversation about God during the twenty-first century. God’s role in the Sacred Science story is rather simple, and basic; a quantum part of everything and its potentiality.
In the beginning was the consciousness of God, the Alpha and the Omega…
