We live in a dynamic material world. From atoms to galaxies,
everything within time and space cycles. Everything responds to
vibration and polarity.1
In an interesting experiment one can place sand on the head of a
drum and then strike different notes and tones. The resonating drumhead
will cause the sand to assume different specific forms appropriate
to each tone. This is a simple illustration of the cosmos that produces
material form from the "music of the spheres" in which
the finer energies create and shape the more gross, and the smaller
control the larger.
Physicists who study electron spin resonance find that
each substance has a specific tone as one can see in the octave
nature of the table of elements.
We in the Here and Now of the year 2000
are set within a specific tone of history. The tempo of our cycle
and vibration is increasing. One of the great cycles of our earth
is the Procession of the Equinoxes in which the "wobble"
of the poles describes a great circle every 26,000 years. Although
there is no "end or beginning," there are those who see
us as completing a great cycle and entering a new Age of Aquarius,
elevating to a new octave.
The Cloud of Ideas Expands
As our present cycle began to develop, human consciousness
began to expand. Humans who were focused in the material world began
to become more efficient in exploiting the energy of the planet.
Agriculture and herding of animals were adopted which enabled humans
to extract more, depleting the soil with agriculture and denuding
the watersheds with overgrazing.
Military/agricultural empires developed in China and
in Central Asia. In China a vast temperate-zone forest was leveled
and the yellow loess soils eroded to the extent that the ocean nearby
began to be called the Yellow Sea. At the same time on a higher
octave of human consciousness the I Ching (Book of Changes) was
produced by that culture.
As what we would now call military dictatorships developed
- the empires of Sumer, Babylon, Greece, Rome, etc., they continued
their ecological despoliation in search of material security. Other
events occurred on a higher octave. The Remarkable Essene communities
developed in the mid-east, a whole culture developed in Tibet dedicated
to expansion of consciousness and in Meso-America the Mayans were
developing a calendar who's accuracy was not surpassed until the
recent development of the atomic clock.
Tempo Increases Toward Cycles' Completion
In the past two centuries the expansion
of human consciousness has greatly increased judging from our ability
to receive and generate new ideas.
As many have observed, the flood of inventions in the
last two hundred years has done little to alleviate the basic condition
of human life on earth. In fact it seems the more "labor saving"
devices, the less personal time and happiness we have.
The flood of knowledge and inventions has allowed humans
to more efficiently mine the life of the earth and support more
population. We catch more fish from the ocean, cut more forests,
mine more topsoil, use the finite supply of petroleum faster and
fly to the moon in a metal cylinder. In the Hindu view we are headed
toward the bottom of the cycle of the Kali Yuga, the most gross
depths of material vibration. In tune with this, science has reached
right down into the basic energy of the material world, the atomic
field, to kill and to power more in search of material security.
The Intuitive Response
As the polarities widen within the material world, there
has been a completely intuitive response and rain of ideas. This
development also has to do with the manipulation of energies but
with a direction toward healing and unity of our whole existence.
These new creations have spontaneously come from all directions
in the fields of energy medicine (holistic health), reconstituting
the disintegrating human society with intentional communities2 and new
forms of primary human family relationships. We have also created
new forms of how we eat from the earth and occupy it without injury,
through such new practices as Permaculture,3 Biointensive
Farming4 Biodynamic Agriculture,5 seed saving and the saving of biodiversity
by growing out endangered plants on one's land. We have also created
new forms of human habitation on the earth with all of the alternative
methods such as straw bale, solar, and natural wastewater systems.6
As the tempo of vibration increases we have also opened
up more direct channels into the ocean of consciousness. In the
Eighteen hundreds there was the explosion of Theosophy and also
of intentional spiritual communities. Then came the New Thought
movement centered on Science of Mind. Then there were the many intuitive
spiritual books; then well-known spiritual channels began to appear.
Now channeling from spiritual realms is spreading through the population.7
The newest and so far most exciting development to occur
has been the growth of many dozens of ecovillages around the planet.
These communities are organized into the Global Ecovillage Network8 and are pointed toward complete ecological
No Further Experiments Necessary
We now have the idealized form of future
existence not only in space/time but also resonance into other levels
in the ocean of consciousness. Health, habitation, food, intimate
society, species conservation and spiritual contact have been demonstrated.
John Jeavons and the Ecology Action group near Willits, CA have
demonstrated how to grow enough food on one thousand square feet
to feed one person forever. Nancy and Jack Todd have demonstrated
at The Ark how to create a living habitation that will heat
and feed us. The many hundreds of intentional communities in the
U.S. have demonstrated how to create new human society. The step
now is for us to put this into action on a large scale.
Communities of Harmonious Resonance
We are creating those islands of life, those cosmically
resonant communities whose etheric, astral and physical images will
become the new seed in the next cycle in whatever vibrational dimension.
Like an antenna communicating with levels of consciousness outside
of space/time, those seeds can be informed of the appropriate direction.
A seed community existing on a watershed that they have
restored to biological health through Permaculture and the saving
of endangered species, can establish a resonant foundation within
the living body of the earth. Using Feng Shui and advanced dousing
methods to understand the lines of earth energies, the natural landscaping
can be put aright. The idea of course is that all resonate harmoniously
so that the human community re-presents the life of the planet to
the cosmos so that the necessary planetary and cosmic currents can
be attracted to produce the creative ideas - so that we may have
Those who suck up the life of the earth grasping for
material security use the flood of ideas for their purposes. We
communities who are appropriately grounded within the life of the
Whole have the opportunity of stepping out of the poles of opposites
that exist within space/time. We may put our antennas into the ocean
of consciousness and receive the truly creative and cosmic ideas.
