THE NATURAL PROCESS OF
We are an unfinished product ... an unfinished painting on the canvas of life! Human evolution is a natural process with infinite potentials for continued growth. In fact, there is no limit to the levels of evolution we can achieve, both as individuals and as a world society. We have within our capacity the ability to guide our own development as consciousness beings, and many of us are doing exactly that.
We as a whole, however, seem to be limited by humanity's own concepts of life and right living. What makes matters worse is that rather than passing on the staff of hope to our children, we continue to impose these limitations to each succeeding generation.
Why is this so and what is it exactly that makes us
continue in this manner? Very simply, it is our ideas
about progress, success and prosperity. It is our
attachment to the material things in life that is getting
in the way of our true development. It's time that we
molded our lives and those of our children and
grandchildren through a display of love and peace in our

all things relating to the physical illusion instead of
achieving the higher aspirations of the Soul. Ask yourself
... are these things really an authentic measure of
prosperity? Do they really contribute to a happier
successful living? Go within to the spiritual center ...
the soul of our being ... for the answer to these questions.
It is there where you will find the vast and largely
untapped potentials of the human spirit. It is through
meditation that you will gain a completely different
perception of life ... one that has nothing to do with
stock portfolios, club memberships, or what the Jones' are
doing. It is there that you will find that the true meaning
of life is far deeper than the corporate status quo will
have you believe.
If you want to find where your natural intuitiveness,
insight and flexibility truly lies, observe the children
who freely use their minds before the cultural inhibitions
have been programmed into them. There you will find that
the natural reaction of a child to express love and
friendship to a stranger is an automatic form of spiritual
expression. Also observe the Native American people who
reflect the natural wisdom that comes from the knowledge
and understanding of Mother Earth, plants, animals, herbal
medicines, practical spirituality and a deep perception
into the purpose of life.
In all of these examples, the word "natural" is the key to
understanding true human progress, for it is through
natural laws ... spiritual laws ... that we learn the
reality of this Cosmos of which we are a part.
Do not let the physical structures or institutions that
we build define humanity's progress. No, true progress is
not found in our physical creations, but in our spiritual
advancement. It is the creator within which must be
fundamentally improved and elevated to that which is our
Divine birthright ... Self realization. It is through
such Self realization that we will experience exquisite
joy, magnificent clarity and deep wisdom ... the true
definition of prosperity. It is through Self realization
that we awaken to our Oneness and unity with all people and
within the context of that which we call God, for it is
through such an awakening that we learn that we as a
species, like Nature, are governed and must adhere to the
same universal laws of life or suffer the penalty of
Overcoming Our Obsession
What do we need to do in order to overcome our obsession
and attachment to materialism? We need to become children
again and apply ourselves to the fundamental principles of
living which do not recognize ethnic differences,
international boundaries, religious dogma or political
philosophies. We need to get back to the natural laws
which a void of the petty judgments of courts, popes,
emperors, kings and presidents; in favor of the fruits of
We cannot accomplish this real purpose of life and
enlightenment while materialism is still the foremost world
religion. We cannot truly become one with All That Is,
find our own souls and real prosperity as long as we
worship the almighty dollar. When are we going to awaken
to the fact that we are destroying each other and the
Earth to gain these things? What good is money, material
possessions and an empire of material wealth, when our
minds are poisoned by self righteousness and dominated by
fear and scarcity?
Time For Change
We are a reflection of a vast, intelligent and creative
universe and it's time that we culturally redefine what
prosperity and progress really mean. It is time to let go
of hatred and war as a means for gaining the love and peace
that mankind desires. It is time to transform our world of
material ideals to a new world of spirituality that is
focused on natural laws rather than biased man-made laws.
The human race is tired of the archaic and ill-conceived
notion that might is right and is more ready than ever for
change. As an intelligent evolved species, we must take our
power back as a free people and begin living beyond the
cultural norms and expectations of the money hungry warlord
minority. We must embrace the truth that we are not humans
having a spiritual experience, but spirits of love having
a human experience, and let go of the notion that nature
and Mother Earth are resources for material exploitation,
but like our human bodies, are sacred temples for spiritual
growth. As a people, let us no longer be viewed in terms of our credentials and resumes, but as who we really are ... centers of consciousness capable of performing miracles. As a society, let us no longer be viewed as a united nation of warring states, but as a global collective entity inseparably united in Oneness. In such a realization, the awakened finds that it is only the love of their fellow human beings that is theirs to experience every moment of every day.
Searching For Truth
Our world is in serious trouble, whether we like to
admit it or not. The stress of unnatural living in the
modern world today is our greatest foe. When I say
unnatural living, I am referring to the worship of money
and material things that is far and above our real need.
Our greatest priority today is what we as individuals do
about this world crisis, and the only remedy is for the
populace to embrace a change in lifestyle ... one that
moves us away from materialism and back to nature ... a
lifestyle of spiritual goals instead of material goals.
Such a lifestyle change calls for us to reject the
materialistic world society in which we live, and move to
the precepts of natural law, thereby dedicating our lives
to the greater evolution of Self. It is one of inner
transformation and our outer revolution rests squarely on
the advancement of this inner evolution.
The Expansion Of Consciousness
Every single thing we do and the manner in which we do
it depends upon our state of consciousness at that moment.
This is why meditation is so important, because it is our
greatest tool for self change. In meditation, we realize
that we are not the thoughts, images or feelings which run
through our being. Our true identity is that which creates
those thoughts, feelings and images. That creator within
is none other than consciousness itself. Not surprisingly,
all of nature is also composed of consciousness, and in
meditation, it is the realization of the I AM presence that
spontaneously arises at a critical point in spiritual
practice. When this happens, we realize that the
consciousness within, is the same in essence as the
consciousness in all persons, all life, and in fact, all
existence. With this reality comes the truth that we are
not only in contact with God, but that we are a part of
God just as cells are a part of our body.
Make no mistake, it is a scientific fact that our
thoughts, emotions and intentions carry an ocean of
electromagnetic impulses just as readily as radio and
television waves. Through meditation, we can direct these
waves to transform the collective consciousness in which
we live and are guided by. Just as meditation is a tool
for us to self evolve ... expand our consciousness ...
this same tool in a group setting with a common theme can
create a mutual force which is not merely additive, but
vastly more powerful than any one individual. This is
because it is a natural phenomenon that the resulting
force generated from the combining of like minds is
geometrically greater than the sum of its parts.
It is through this force of combined spiritually
oriented consciousness that we can reshape the agenda of
future social events. As we expand our individual
consciousness by altering our personal vibrational field
from one of hatred and judgement to one of love and peace,
and change our lifestyle from one of materialism to one of
spirituality, there is literally nothing that we cannot
