The vision of America must eventually be in line with the driving force of evolution ~ where mutual cooperation, altruism and service replace manipulation, greed and selfishness and we are once again in sync with our true divine destiny: Allen L Roland
During my monthly national radio show TRUTHTALK on Monday morning March 1st ( www.conscioustalk.net ) with Rob Spears and Brenda Michaels ~ we had an intense conversation on what is really needed to right our badly listing ship of state where virtually no one has confidence in our inexperienced Captain Obama, his staff of burned out Cinton and Bush leftovers and a crew of Congressional leaders who are selling favors to the highest corporate bidders.
Of course, We The People own this ship but we gave up our ownership many years ago when we let fear override that responsibility and the Cheney/Bush administration gutted its internal guidance system by shredding the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.This left our morally and fiscally bankrupt ship floundering on open seas and subject to giant swells of growing ridicule, abuse and disenchantment by its true owners ~ We The People.
So Brenda kept insisting we need a deeper vision besides tea parties, social movements and possible third parties and she was absolutely right !
To keep this ship afloat, we must ride the deep driving current of evolution whereas mutual cooperation, altruism and service replace manipulation, greed and selfishness and we are once again in sync with our true divine destiny.
Our task on this planet is to surrender to this same universal urge to unite and play our part in the great coming together of mankind ~ and it begins with each one of us surrendering to love, mutual cooperation and altruism versus hatred, separation and greed.
Richard Leakey wrote in " The beginnings of mankind " that there was very little evidence of violence and aggression in early mankind with considerable evidence of social cooperation and altruism as the deciding factors in evolution.
Scientific American said virtually the same thing in its issue The Arithmetic's of Mutual Help ( June 1995 ) where it shared how computer experiments show how cooperation rather than exploitation can dominate in the Darwinian struggle for survival . The article by Martin Nowak, Robert May and Karl Sigmund seems to reinforce Teilhard's Law of Complexity-Consciousness ~ " Throughout the evolutionary history of life, cooperation among smaller units led to the emergence of more complex structures as, for example, the emergence of multicellular creatures from single-celled organisms. In this sense, cooperation becomes as essential for evolution as is competition."
They conclude by saying ~ " In the course of evolution, there appears to have been ample opportunity for cooperation to have assisted everything from humans to molecules. In a sense, cooperation could be older than life itself. "
And what else could be older than life itself than LOVE, the universal urge to unite ~ or a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness.
It could also be that the whole world is waiting for us to make this correction. That we have indeed become the rogue and out of control nuclear battleship that threatens not only mankind but the delicate equilibrium of the inanimate, vegetative and animate levels of nature and the consciousness of the planet.That the War on terror is actually our own War of terror and that WE are the true International terrorists who are holding up a rapidly approaching global shift in consciousness. When the assassination of individuals, identified as a threat to the security of the United States, are routinely executed in countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen ~ we have set up rules that are directly contradictory to the rules of Nature.
What we also don't realize is that the Earth has its own set of rules. As B.E. Mahall and F.H. Bormann point out in their recent article ( same title ) in the LA Times ~ " Our view of nature is based on our human desire for more, and that economic model is broken."
They correctly point out that our anthropocentric ( regarding human kind as the center of existence ) economic model for interacting with the world " ignores and is proving to be incompatible with Earth's rules, and is therefore on a direct collision course with them ... To achieve a more accurate model of our relation to nature, we need to see ourselves as part of nature, governed by nature (not economics), beholden to nature for ecosystem services and subject to nature's disturbances." http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-mahall2-2010mar02,0,6899831.story
And I maintain that Earth's number one evolutionary rule, as I have pointed out, is mutual cooperation within an interdependent and loving plan.
In summary, we can no longer resist our innate universal urge to unite which is the principle property of the Unified Field. And if we continue to resist this urge to unite, Nature will force us, through natural disasters such as earthquakes, weather catastrophes and climate change to make this leap in spirit, connection and consciousness.
The Vision of America is not in our arms and munitions but in our hearts. The Vision of America is not in our wealth but in our spirit. We can only right our sinking ship of state when we individually and collectively demand nothing less from both ourselves and our leaders. And any political leader understanding, living and carrying this evolutionary banner will lead America and the world to its divine destiny.
