WEALTH THROUGH ALL WORLDS
Towards A Paradigm of Plenty: Evolving a Planetary Culture of Freedom, Ethics, Cooperative & Restorative Justice
AWAKEN. TRANSFORM. ILLUMINATE. CREATE.
Without the exploration of the inner life, the worldly journey is incomplete. And, without the creative expression of the inner virtues of love, empathy, goodness, & beauty in service to the Whole, the spiritual journey is incomplete. When we interweave the inner & outer we transform ourselves & we transform our society. When the upper & lower are united we envision & create systems, structures, & cultures which reflect our highest values & which give space for the embodiment of our greatest potential as individuals, & as a global citizenry.” ~ Ayisha Aishwarya
The literal meaning of healing is “to make whole”. The paradox of the spiritual journey on Earth is that we are at once already Whole, while in the process of realising our individuated Wholeness. We must become congruent in a fully conscious way. To embark towards conscious integration, spiritual awakening, soul embodiment, healing, also known as ascension, is to recall our Essential Nature, and to reenter the world from there. Through shedding restrictive cultural conditioning, we reveal that which we innately are, and we become free to contribute our soul’s unique puzzle piece to the Jigsaw of Creation. Although we have the potential to enter peak states of knowing or illumination spontaneously, in any moment, sustained awakening and soul integration requires perspective, purpose, procedure, process, precision, patience, and practice.
As humans we meet “the initiations of life” experiencing pain, illness, trauma, bereavement, abuse, neglect, emotional dysregulation and dissociation, addictions, personal and vocational relationship crises, stifled creative expression, confusion of soul purpose and meaning, identity loss…all on the background of upheaval in the collective psyche.
In each moment we take a choice to devolve or to evolve, to regress or to progress, to sow seeds of suffering and negativity or of love and liberation. The process of spiritual awakening and soul embodiment reveals our unconscious choices of enslavement and repression which we learn to upcycle for conscious choices towards illumination, truth, freedom, and altruistic creative expression.
Should we choose to listen to the yearnings of the soul, we can become more enlivened. Perceived from a higher/deeper perspective and with the correct tools, the challenges of human life become opportunities for transformation, expansion, celebration, and conscious co-creation. We learn to integrate the “fractured and fragmented parts” of ourselves and we choose to make that which is hidden visible. We en-light-en the darkness, we intentionally inhabit more of our potential, we access unconditional joy and cultivate unending love: We become illumined from within. We remember our Divine Essence and we reactivate that in human flesh.
The ancients from all traditions and cultures used consciousness expanding practices to help one re-experience one’s limitless nature – for we learn to know ourselves in an experiential way: a deep knowing rather than purely a thinking. These practices included cultivating the virtues, ethics training, meditation techniques of mindful presence, loving kindness & compassion, contemplative methods, healing modalities to transcend trauma and karma, as well as energetic practices to transform one’s perceptions, and one’s reality. They became alchemists, spiritualising the material and materialising the spiritual – building bridges between Heaven and Earth.
In the modern era people are either seeking to convert or to be converted. Dogma free spiritual training which emboldens individual sovereignty, democratising high spiritual principles, emphasising one’s Direct connection to the Ultimate Truth is iterating it’s importance. We are faced with deep systemic wounding from old authority structures which fed corruption and used religious, educational, and societal institutions to distort power, to propagate the hegemonic narrative, and to oppress “the minority” classes. A reductionist world view amplified amazing technological progress on our planet. Equally, it created a cosmology of fragmentation and separatism, and fostered a state of disconnection – disconnection from our inner authority, from our own bodies, from our own hearts and souls, from our own intelligence, from other beings, and from the Earth.
We are at a cultural choice point where we can individually and collectively supersede the old and supplant new modes of truth seeking, updated definitions of power rebalanced for mutual and collective benefit, much improved from the templates of domination which gave rise to “power over” control structures of the past. The crises of our times require us to recover our wholism, to recall the treasures of the inner life, to remember our interconnectedness and to renew our interdependence. We must no longer enshackle our innate Wisdom, outsourcing it to those “who know better”, but learn to cultivate it, honing it with skill and tenacity. We must actively engage in the processes of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual maturation. We are being called to re-embrace our intuition which means to educate from within, and restore eternal value to our lives. We must heal the splintering within ourselves, our relationships, our families, our communities and our exchanges with the Earth, our bountiful home.
What if we reexamined and remembered the wider meaning of Wealth? What if we resutured the erroneous splitting of spirit and matter? What if we deeply understood the sacred marriage of inner wealth and outer wealth, soul and body? What if we came to realise that revealing the intrinsic wealth within bestows extrinsic wealth without? What if we understood that when we make it a priority to grow in self awareness and transform ourselves, we diminish suffering for the collective and we transform the world? What if we reinstated compassion, connectedness, and joy as our default state of functioning? What if we remembered ourselves as living, breathing, walking, talking manifestations of Loving Presence? What if we learned to marry our Divinity and our Humanity utilising our bodies, brains, and hearts to express our soul’s unique spiritual purpose in the world? What if we honoured Every Being’s differentiated full expression of the One Reality? What if we did this in a mutually supportive way?
What if we realised our potential for Wealth Through All Worlds?
