A New World Order?

DataNeverSleepsWe face a time where many things are changing, including our world. We need to move forward, but how? Are our values, morals and ethics enough? Reports from the other side* seem to reveal a paradox in that we carry our own judgments, otherwise they do not exist. Yet, the fact that I used the term New World Order caused a response within you and more than likely toward the suspicious rather than friendly and open.

Our thoughts and actions determine our reality, as one might extrapolate based on new thought and quantum theory. Imagine that there is no ultimate Judge, only our own record of behavior weighed with the internal gauge of our own perception. We’re not always clear and conscious as we navigate the ocean of emotion. The spiritual sagas relate stories of the Light and the Void, yet we often miss they are one within us – our internal barometer of balance and harmony.

What if the sensations are the same in the Void as in the Light? What if there is a sense of total individuality and total inclusion in the Oneness, the yin/yang of the life cycle in consciousness? Could this be what the ‘end of time’ is? Are we moving toward a unified field theory that plays out as movement toward pragmatic ends? Is it possible these polarities within us are learning to play instead of fight? How can we help?

Perhaps we’re all just data flowing down some etheric glass tube or something. Our lives are certainly becoming data-driven by the Giver of Data. According to the stats, nary one-third of the population is active. We know it operates on light pulses. What we forget is that we do to, so its possible for data streams to intermingle. I wonder what might happen? We’d certainly need to suspend our belief system in order to process the data without bias.

The only judgments made in the realms of consciousness are our own. Near-Death experiencers validate that point ubiquitously. What a paradox in the face of the fear, guilt and shame game! What if we were able to carry that feeling of connectedness (reported by NDE and Spiritually Transformative Experiencers) with us, knowing it is what we will find at our next transition anyway? Seems we got that advice a couple thousand years ago and very few listened then. We’re seeing scientific leanings toward the same in quantum realms.

Is this our challenge: to move from duality to Oneness in our own consciousness? What a challenge for humans! Our minds are binary processors, so that can be a real challenge. It can also be a great opportunity. Are we more than just humans? Are we alien to our own design? Or do we just not understand what being human really means? We certainly sense the deep connection with loved ones and in compassionate activities. Is this natural? Are we truly spiritual beings having a human experience?

Does a child not grow up to become an adult with the capacity to become a parent? What is a self-actualized human being? Could we be confusing crawl-ins, stand-ins and walk-ins because we have no frame of reference and still cannot claim our own growth toward magnificence? We are taught to cower (respect) in the presence of authority and not question directly. Do we not question the significance of reality on a regular basis?

The natural resonance of what we have categorized as the various forms of love is obvious evidence that we have a deep-seated knowing that produces sensations when we violate our own values in living. Science explains it as harmonic or discordant frequencies, depending on the observable result. Observation is across a sensory array throughout our mind and body, like a transceiver, that we can only ‘read’ when we are quiet, silent and intentionally available.

Our ethics demonstrate how we weigh our knowing of this love with the maligned perception of fear, guilt or shame promoted by those who wish dominance because the grip of their own fear is so unshakeable. The latter is an example of discordant frequencies, they just don’t feel good at all. True happiness is unavailable in that state of being. We can see the falseness of safety and security in money and power.

A self-actualized human being, in my opinion, would have achieved awareness through primary personal portals into the fabric of consciousness, at least becoming proficient in creating constructive scenarios with people, places and things. In other words, going through the trials and tribulations to learn trust in yourself. One who achieves a connected state is able to excel in creating good will and execution of strategic plans to actualize personal or professional goals. They work and play well with others and even lead by example in their community.

Even those connected individuals realize that the challenge to remain connected is an ever-present moment. It’s a constant choice to stay in the precious present. Now what about those who have extraordinary connectivity to things beyond the normal scope of human experience? In other words, what about those who are open to the thoughts and feelings of others? Empathy is their gift, yet it can often extend into the collective consciousness, the ‘thoughtmosphere’ of the planet. How do they relate to a new living awareness? Apparently sensitivities are on the rise due to our planet’s increased vibratory rate as a bi-product of our movement through space. Imagine being plugged in to the cosmic computer with terabytes processing through you in each heart beart.

According to some sources, cosmic volunteers that become self-actualized human beings master experiential knowing and translate their wisdom into ‘righteous’ acts, promoting the good of the order and all. They are able to engage phenomena beyond our imagination and yet because of universal edicts, their lives are often hidden from public view. What if some of these paranormal possibilities began leaking through to the general public?

Humans tend to want spectacular sideshows anyway, and often get caught up in the phenomena to the point of missing the message. We might even begin to see a synergism of previously fragmented bits of knowledge that congeal into malleable frameworks of great import if we pay attention closely. A natural order exists, understood by mathematicians and scientists, that is being presented as a question of balance with inner and outer realities.

Across the Web and in our communities there are so many versions of how this group or that group is vying for position to lead the way to the New World Order, some as cabals and pundits and others as world servers and stewards. A point of perspection dances in the balance of the seer’s vision. What lens are we looking through? Can we have a broader view? Do we really need a view? Can we just choose to get along and move forward like we mean it? Harmony among people and planet would be a new world order.

Just the mention of the phrase ‘New World Order’ carries so many different ‘charges’ of emotional bindings that it is hard to find the ‘truth’ to it all. What were your thoughts when you read the phrase this time? Do you see how sensitized we can become from marginalized information and the projections of others? Still, change happens when polarities come out to play and the situation becomes uncomfortable to an extreme.

So I’ll leave you with this question: What would a new world order of harmony among people and planet look like, smell like, taste like, feel like, sound like and BE like?

Here’s a video from over 20 years ago that might provide some insight and inspiration for the future. It is the first show for One World, a series I created in the early 90s, outlining the concept and hopefuls for the show. Are we willing to incorporate the new and find harmony in the all?

The Process of Critical Self-Reflection

8-aspectsSelf-Reflection

The process of critical reflection of assumptions empowers one and many to view influencing details that determines the ability to find consensus and harmony in any situation. Harmony does not mean the absence of conflict, merely the creative buy cialis 20mg use of it to resolve issues that inhibit cooperative and collaborative relationships in professional and personal environments.

The article presents perspectives of human patterns and the avenues available to establish collective understandings of beliefs, intentions, values and feelings to facilitate a ‘common’ reality that is workable for everyone. Critical reflection of assumptions is used to enter into a discourse to assess alternative beliefs, predicated on universal principles. CRA is used in Transformational Theory, Assimilative Learning, Objective Reframing, and Subjective Reframing for adult learning.

Transformational Theory

Transformational Theory (Mezirow, 1991,1995, 1996), which uses reflection, maintains human learning is promoted in communication through assessing intentions, values, moral issues, and feelings which requiring the use of critical reflection of assumptions. Transformational Theory holds that CRA is not a panacea or provides some transcendent experience to resolve conflict. Rather, it presents the process as a ‘best practice’ compared to other options that have been used in the workplace.

Assimilative Learning

Assimilative Learning, as used by psychoanalysts, pertains to adjustment or accommodation to a difficult situation by accepting it as conforming to one’s desire. This process moves one to act according to regulative principles, a way of thinking or behaving deemed more functional or acceptable. This seems to characterize the way adults learn to adapt to change, using tacit judgment to move forward to constructive results.

Objective Reframing

Objective Reframing examines established definitions, theories, and practices to better understand the paradigms influencing decision-making. Using critical reflection of a premise and defining a problem can lead to transformative redefinition and ‘problem posing.’ The objective of this process, in the all its facets, is to improve performance.

Subjective Reframing

Subjective Reframing examines psychological or cultural assumptions to reveal conceptual and psychological limitations.

In all of the above situations, critical reflection of assumptions is used in discursive groups to assess and manage flow of communication relative to outcomes desired within those same discursive groups that are commonly found within the workplace environment. The task for a manager is to creatively translate the use of critical reflection of assumptions and discourse to effectively facilitate conflict resolution in the workplace.

Questions:

What are the tools available for creating an atmosphere where critical reflection of assumptions can be used effectively? How can one facilitate the use of such tools in environments where human communications are predicated on form, fit and function of critical path assessments?

Potential Answers:

Human resource development programs using a combination of psychoanalytic assessment tools and facilitation training for employees are one possibility. Cultural diversity and sensitivity training for managers is another, as they can then affect communication in their respective departments. Team building or collaborative alliance training outside of the company’s environment is yet another possibility that offers professional development through reliance on others as well as self.

Critical path assessment, defining the basic fundamentals of production, can be introduced through various scenarios involving critical reflection of assumptions. One such opportunity would involve discovering the logic path used to streamline production processes, eliminating wasted resources and labor costs as a functional goal. Another would use interpersonal skills development to better affect communicating goals and objectives to a diverse population within the workforce.

Personal ethics statement: I will to do good for all, desiring to serve humanity in the highest and best use of my mind/body/spirit complex, in the facilitation of a new world order of harmony among people and planet through the development of a state-of-the-art model community and website that promotes this endeavor.

The Challenge to Change

CelebrateChangeThe Challenge to Change

We know, or at least some have a sense, that all things are connected – a holistic model of consciousness permeates creation. Quantum sciences are pointing toward this as fact now. We still choose to separate ourselves from others today, though.

Fear is being promoted at the very top of national leadership across the world. Even when prompted to contact or communicate with another, our ‘logic’ often prohibits the interaction due to fear of misunderstanding, rejection or threat of appearing less than what we think we should.

Can we affect change where primary belief systems seem diametrically opposed? Can we offer a solution? Do we really want solutions? It has taken us centuries to arrive at the present conditions. Can or will it change in a few years? Will we rise above fear and embrace a new way?

How can we open our minds to something we’ve never experienced? What if we were able to acknowledge the obvious? Our minds and hearts are still in opposition, we fear what we do not know or have not experienced.

Oftentimes a new experience brings such a ‘rush’ of energy that we confuse it as a threat rather than a thread in the fabric of our evolution. We lock up – the fight or flight syndrome so common in psychology.

Are these our only choices? Do we have yet another choice yet unexplored? We can rise in consciousness but we actually take the mandatory rollercoaster ride to get there. It is our unconscious patterned desire for continued separation that inhibits our ability to connect, a pattern so deep and in such conflict with self/Self that wars are fought across the planet because of it.

Ancient Mayan and even Sanskrit terms in use today indicate we might want to consider some alternatives. ‘In lakesh’ (I am another you) and ‘Namasté’ (internal and external obeisance to thee) both acknowledge the oneness in self and others.

The humble bow of recognition that is part of many cultures moves us closer toward a sense of unity or at least understanding. It is more than respect. I am challenged to see and sense myself in another, even with the extensive experience and knowing of this truth and an attitude of gratitude. What about those unaware?

The Internet brings us closer in communication and yet further apart from physical communion with others. What do we really want anyway? The hot new belief system says we can attract what we want by identifying what we desire, giving it attention, and allowing it to happen.navigate

Easier said than done, yet it warrants further consideration for sure. Implementing an action plan that creates the magnet for the desire to manifest is the key that we seem to ignore, thinking that we can defy known scientific rules: potential energy remains at rest until acted upon.

Conversely it is an obvious strain in feeling and logic to eliminate the concept of identifying what we don’t want in order to move closer to what we do. Still the objective is to create, co-create or construct new thoughtforms of a stronger magnetism that allows matter and spirit to coalesce in accordance with this new living awareness. I’ve heard it called ‘structural tension’ as an element in the creative process. How do we make the process simple?

Simplicity of being, doing and having is the goal for all spiritual seekers, allowing the greater consciousness to permeate their worlds and guide their daily movements. Simple gratification and validation is also the goal of most individuals in daily living, unconsciously desiring to love and be loved in the spirit of oneness. We talk a good line, but the result is tainted with pushing or pulling energy to move as many mountains as possible with as little effort as we can muster.

This is not to say that humans are lazy, yet they do tend to avoid the stretch to actually make things simple in their daily lives, let alone shift into a heart-centered awareness. Once a heart-centered awareness is achieved, though, the knowing moves us toward more prudent paths.

Our perceived intelligence often convinces us not to listen to the still small voice within, even after a so-called ‘spiritual awakening.’ We rarely challenge the notion of duality, yet it is the stumbling block laid before us in our quest to find balance and harmony.

Even science and religion strive to find harmony in their expressions of reality and thousands of books have been written on the subject of Unity… unified field theory to universal love, M Theory to The Masters of the Far East and much more. How can we simplify?

Would it be easier to simply look at the existing systems in our global economy, for instance, and focus on developing life-friendly processes and protocols? How can we better manage our resources, both human and material, while promoting a sense of unification without subjugation?

We are faced with choices on a moment to moment basis, pushed and pulled by this or that to make a decision about our lives, great or small. Granted some do not want to choose, they simply want to follow or be told what to do so they do not have to be accountable or responsible for their actions. It is far easier a path to be led than to lead. It is a challenge to think, let alone change.

Something to consider is that challenge and change are only 3 letters different. Take out the ‘lle’ and change is automatic. I like to offer that the ‘lle’ stands for ‘liability, limitation and excuse’ and all fall into the personal capacity realm first, but extend into the group, organization or team when facing goals and objectives. Consider the identification and systematic elimination of those items in yourself and/or your organization. What might happen as a result?
