INSIDE THE INTELLIGENCE: Mapping The Path to Oneness, Page 6
The antidote is the shift from the plane of duality to identifying yourself in a landscape of reality, which is the interconnection of everything.
Gather a group of people who are blessed by their own authenticity and impelled at this time to be tools for the awakening of humanity to its capacity for intimacy and ecstasy. Presence yourselves in reality. Your state of beingness will be your power, and no forms you might impose will be as impacting as the inspiration that will afford. To be with you will be to be with the future, the state of full responsibility and opportunity for which humanity has been designed.
The awakening to the divine in yourselves is the culminating experience of life: beyond religion, beyond teachers, beyond gurus, beyond following anybody or anything which tries to give you what you don’t have. It is time to recognize that the next step — into self — is a move that each must make in an act of independent authority, and a move that can be made in the company of other independent authorities sharing the energy of being.
The particular people who will collect for this endeavor have no exclusive entitlement. They will have heard the call and will respond. With every new participant, a strengthening of the whole will occur. This is uncharted territory which does not bend to rugged individualism, but exists only in co-creation. Meetings where people really meet are in order.
We, too, keep evolving; there is always more. Oh beautiful. Create your own aliveness, Suzanne. You are a victim as long as you are not creating. Know that you are signaling. You are beaming totality. Right now it is enough to engage with who beams back.
You are an energy that does not know separation. There is no one to whip into shape. There is no you outside of yourself to work on. Who would be doing the working? All separation is an illusion which produces a tension that is a substitute for life. Knowing self as life there is nothing to separate from.
Do not yearn. Only know yourself. Being yourself is just being. There is nowhere to go and nothing to get. Travelling with life, there is only more life.
How long, you ask, is this humanity going to play shell games? How much data about life are they going to sling around without being alive? When are they going to become what they’ve been worshipping since Jesus issued his invitation and they laminated it instead of acting on it? When are they going to sincerely ask these questions instead of expertly answering other ones?
QUOTES FROM THE SHOW
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing.
[After 9/11] America is something different from whatever evils its power structures have imposed on it. Imperfect people come and go, but under all of them is this river of America that the idealistic Founding Fathers so brilliantly conceptualized. They, too, were flawed humans, but this spirit of the United States is something else again. The flags waving are for that, not for George Bush. We are one, beyond where our leadership steers us. Thank God. We are a hope of the world. Maybe, thanks to this tragedy. we will achieve our promise. Let’s pray for that.
[Source of name for my non-profit, Mighty Companions] Now comes a period of settling down. This is a quiet time, in which the teacher of God rests a while in reasonable peace. Now he consolidates his learning. Now he begins to see the transfer value of what he has learned. Its potential is literally staggering, and the teacher of God is now at the point in his progress at which he sees in it his whole way out.’Give up what you do not want, and keep what you do.’ The teacher of God needs this period of respite…when he is ready to go on, he goes with mighty companions beside him. Now he rests a while, and gathers them before going on. He will not go on from here alone.
– A COURSE IN MIRACLES
A coalition already exists in spirit. It is coming together now in the social context by the attraction of its unconventional intelligence and compassionate form of high-mindedness. This natural coalition is drawn together by the recognition that the elevation of consciousness is our fundamental life work. This is a genuinely democratic, self-organizing force, flowing through persons of all descriptions. This force does not flourish as any highly structured form. It is not an institution or a foundation or a non-profit company or anything conventionally named. This coalition is a living organism — natural, wild, free. It is made up of individuals devoted to serving the world and developing themselves as finely tuned instruments of service. They learn to gather in the energy of will-to-good, from which authentic goodwill flows out subtly to the entire world.

A coalition of the best minds is so desirable, like The Twilight Club from the last century: The Twilight Club was founded in the late 19th century and continued well into the 20th century. The motto was, “To cultivate good fellowship and enjoy rational recreation.” Members included Andrew Carnegie, Rudyard Kipling, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Darwin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Andrew Carnegie, Thomas J. Watson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Walter Russell.
It held regular meetings in a building in N.Y donated by Andrew Carnegie and each member agreed to write something every year that had a direct bearing on and reference to the moral code of ethics. What came out of this conviviality of good minds was the elimination of sweatshops, compulsory education and child labor laws, the Better Business Bureau, the library system, the Scout movement, Rotary and Lions and Kiwanis Clubs, and much more.
