…a new human force is rising up even as the structures and systems of the passing civilisation fail through self-interest
Three masons were working at chipping chunks of granite from large blocks. The first seemed unhappy at his job, chipping away and frequently looking at his watch. When asked what it was that he was doing, he responded, rather curtly, ‘I’m hammering this stupid rock, and I can’t wait ’til 5 when I can go home’. A second mason, seemingly more interested in his work, was hammering diligently and when asked what it was that he was doing, answered, ‘Well, I’m molding this block of rock so that it can be used with others to construct a wall. It’s not bad work, but I’ll sure be glad when it’s done’. A third mason was hammering at his block fervently, taking time to stand back and admire his work. He chipped off small pieces until he was satisfied that it was the best he could do. When he was questioned about his work he stopped, gazed skyward and proudly proclaimed, ‘I am building a cathedral!’”
…it becomes apparent that we are in the midst of a mighty shift of identity, a complete turnaround of direction, both human-wide and planet-wide
…the heart is fired into life and we resurrect ourselves into finer beings and restore our world to a more divinely intended order.
This new vision and new world are being realised into being all around the Earth – it is a global, integrating expansion in consciousness. It does not reflect through existing structures though may exist in some of their personnel. It is a complete departure from past modes of relating with one another and the world – it is the rebuilding of the shrine of man’s living. The Tibetan Master explained:
Rebuilding is needed and this will require a dedicated, spiritual insight. The New Age will not be ushered in and find true expression of its latent energies through the medium of old and patched up forms, or through the preservation of ancient techniques and attitudes. It will come into being through entirely new forms and by means of the intelligent discarding of old modes of religion, government and economic and social idealisms. The need for sensitive intermediaries who can sense the new emerging realities and can take the needed constructive steps is great.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol II, page 589
…for those with eyes to see it is becoming apparent that human consciousness is unfolding into this finer state of being
We are not here speaking of ‘knowing something’ but rather of that state we simply call knowing. It is a direct awareness independent of reasoning, logical processes of the analytical mind, and of time or sequence. Direct knowing is beyond the function of the intuition but instantly precipitates that intuition. Any resultant revelation can be given out in a chosen format to advance the thinking of humanity. The format is not the truth itself but only an instrument.” Journey of a Lifetime, by Merle Stubbs, Chapter 3 p.46
This “knowing” inspires such movements as the spontaneous uprising of young people around the world who call for a new way as they march and speak out for safety from gun violence in schools and homes. They are ignoring the demands of the old order and clarifying the need for solutions that help and support – that nurture. See: https://marchforourlives.com/ Young inventors are also showing the way with solutions that cooperate with the natural world to help where need is greatest. See: http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20180316-four-teenage-inventors-changing-the-world “People power” everywhere is pushing back against oppressive and life-threatening practices and both demanding and implementing a more empathic and heart-centred approach that nurtures the human potential for true greatness.
And we know something of what the new humanity will be like through the great Teachers down the ages.
…the power to live and to function subjectively, to possess a constant inner contact with the soul and the world in which it is found, and this must work out subjectively through love, actively shown; through wisdom, steadily outpoured; and through that capacity to include and to identify oneself with all that breathes and feels which is the outstanding characteristic of all truly functioning sons of God.” A Treatise on White Magic, page 603
He it is, the innermost one,
who awakens my being with his deep hidden touches.
He it is who puts his enchantment upon these eyes
and joyfully plays on the chords of my heart
in varied cadence of pleasure and pain.
He it is who weaves the web of this maya
in evanescent hues of gold and silver, blue and green,
and lets peep out through the folds his feet,
at whose touch I forget myself.
Days come and ages pass,
and it is ever he who moves my heart in many a name,
in many a guise, in many a rapture of joy and of sorrow.
~ Innermost One by Rabindranath Tagore
