We exist within a realm that demands our conscious evolution. In a society where a person’s worth is measured by their wealth or physical appearance, we must challenge and dismantle the prevailing standards. Alternatively, we can choose to endure continuous torment and suffer in silence, falsely believing it strengthens us while it actually erodes our well-being. However, dispelling these pervasive myths necessitates a profound connection with the divine, drawing inspiration from the wisdom of luminaries such as Maya Angelou and James Baldwin. It calls for the harmonization of energies and the attainment of transcendental states of consciousness. As James Redfield elucidates, an increasing number of individuals will awaken to this transformative state, thus ushering in a new era of awareness and liberation.
We know that life is really about a spiritual unfolding that is personal and enchanting an unfolding that no science or philosophy or religion has yet fully clarified. And we know something else as well: know that once we do understand what is happening, how to engage this allusive process and maximize its occurrence in our lives, human society will take a quantum leap into a whole new way of life one that realizes the best of our tradition and creates a culture that has been the goal of history all along.
Intuition and surrendering hold immense power within our lexicon. What do they truly ask of us? What do they imply? We have devoted our lives to work, manifestation, and the relentless grind, making surrendering seem like quitting or surrendering to defeat. Yet, deep down, I believe it is a transformative shift in how we engage with the world—a willingness to say “okay” with joy and embrace patience as the highest virtue. By utilizing our intuition, we find the courage to continuously align ourselves with the individuals we aspire to be. The fifth insight urges us to embrace a new consciousness, allowing an evolved self to emerge. James Redfield beautifully encapsulates this concept of evolution by saying:
The thought of both East and West (philosophies) can indeed be integrated into a higher truth. They show us that the West is correct in maintaining that life is about progress about evolving toward something higher. Yet the East is also correct in emphasizing that we must let go of control with the ego. We can’t progress by using logic alone. We have to attain a fuller consciousness, an inner connection with God, because only then can our evolution toward something better be guided by a higher part of ourselves.
I don’t resonate with the term “work ethic”; instead, I propose embracing a “love ethic.” By adopting a love ethic in our lives, we release judgment and overthinking, choosing to approach our work with the same love, care, respect, and honesty we would give a beloved. Just as a disciplined monk in a culture that often neglects the soul, we can identify and release those unhelpful thoughts from our spirit. It’s crucial to intercept and remove those thoughts, loving ourselves enough to have faith in our abilities, to undergo daily transformation, and to recognize the mystical experiences unfolding around us. We must believe in a reality that transcends poverty and relentless stress.
