A new paradigm, based on scientific breakthroughs, with evidence at all scales of existence and across numerous fields of research, is revealing a radically expanded perception of the world. It is converging with universal wisdom and spiritually-based teachings. In realizing the unified nature of reality, it calls for a collective evolutionary shift of consciousness and the emergence of an inclusive interspirituality which provides essential practices for awakening to this unitive consciousness. Central to its unitive narrative is the recognition of our interbeing; our interconnectedness, interdependence and belonging with the whole community of our planetary home, Gaia, and with the entire Universe.
Revolutionary insights are discovering a Universe whose appearance emerges from deeper levels of causation. Our Universe not only exists and evolves as an entirely unified and innately sentient entity, but meaningfully and purposefully, exists TO evolve- from simplicity to complexity and diversity, and toward ever greater levels of individuated and collective self-expression, self-awareness and conscious interdependence.
Above all, multiple scientific disciplines are concluding that mind and consciousness are not something we have but rather, what we and the whole world fundamentally are.
This emergent understanding is revealing a cosmology of evolutionary consciousness. By recognizing unity with the ultimate Great Mystery or Source of all being and inherent integration with universal sentience, a unitive narrative also contextualizes biological emergence as the expression of an inherently living and dynamically evolving Universe.
The unfolding evolutionary story describes how cosmic mind, articulated in a universal ‘language’ based on digitized and vitally, meaningful, in-formation and pixelated at the most minute scale of existence, literally and actively in-forms the entire appearance and manifest forms of our Universe. The holographic principle, so named by extending research from black holes to a universal scale, is also providing compelling cosmological evidence that the Universe’s in-formed reality manifests holographically; with its innate wholeness expressed in nested and relational complexity of its differentiated and diverse parts.
The mathematical signatures and dynamic patterns and processes of wholeness are being found at all scales of existence and through numerous fields of study ranging from cosmology, physics and chemistry, to biology, complex systems and collective human behaviors.
Beginning, 13.8 billion years ago, not in the old paradigm story of the implied chaos of a big bang, but as a beautifully ordered and incredibly fine-tuned first moment of an ongoing ‘big breath’, a sentient Universe emerged. As space expands from its miniscule birth and time flows from past to present to future, life embodies a profound evolutionary impulse driven, not by random occurrences and mutations, but through resonant and harmonic interplays of forces and influences that are meaningfully and coherently in-formed and guided.
Gaia’s continuing emergence is embodied in collaborative and synergistic relationships and dynamic coevolutionary partnerships on a planetary scale, where, now, the conscious evolution of humanity may be realized as an integral part of our planet’s own evolutionary progress and purpose.
On planetary and human levels, the universal and archetypal relationships now being evidentially revealed are also reflected in faith based and wisdom traditions and in psychologist C.G. Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious and representative archetypes: containing the whole spiritual heritage of humanity’s evolution born anew in the mind of every individual.
Instead of the apparent separation of our inner and outer awareness, and devaluation of our inner perception, a unitive narrative values our inner cognition and invites us to inwardly hear the wisdom of our hearts. In doing so, it also honors and respects the complementarity of feminine and masculine attributes, relatedness and balanced perspectives and empowers the co-creativity of their synergies within and between us. And thus, its unity expressed in diversity guides us to a wholeness of both the inner being and outer doing in our lives and supports us in integrating our innate health and wholeness, both individually and communally.
