On 10 July 2016, I meditated on the words that could perfectly represent what calls to me most deeply – my essential purpose and work in the world. About three minutes in, the below started to arrive and I was compelled to get up and start writing. It is true that supporting people in realizing and accepting their own divinity brings me unsurpassed joy. And in the context of Sourcing The Way, our work goes beyond the client’s Self-realization to include living and working beyond ego, as a radiantly whole person or organization. May these words be of service.
To Each One of My Dear Clients and Beloveds:
Time is short. Nonexistent, actually. So let us be brief: You are a unique Avatar, Buddha, Christ. You are a creator god on Earth; and even such expansive language understates Your majesty.
From the perspective of a world evolving in time, my singular vocation, or life’s play, is the ignition of Self-realization, enlightenment, and beyond in as many people and systems as possible, in the least amount of time possible.
Yet in truth, no time is required and universal enlightenment is already attained. Enlightenment is not a temporal phenomenon. It is not an experience. Experiences always have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Enlightenment is the one thing, which is actually not a thing, that has no relationship to time. It already is, it is untouched by birth and death, and you are it. You are it, we are it, and this is it. Even if we do not yet burn with the liberating fire of Self-realization, we are already enlightenment.
Recently I was asked to recommend a practice for discovering that we are love, for recognizing love as our own true nature. Rather than inventing something or searching for someone else’s answer, I responded with a description of an experiment in “beaming love” that I’ve been living for the past few years. And while reflecting on my own journey, I realized that discovering that I am love is the same as “finding true love.”
One of my greatest wishes is that we all find true love! Here’s a way that I know will work…
By some miracle, we humans have the experience of life, and we have the experience that everything in life comes from something else. Through investigation, and given enough time and resources, we always seem to be able to find the source of whatever it is that we are investigating. This ability to inquire is certainly one of our greatest gifts. We are born with the capacity to explore life and discover the source of it. And when we find the source of life, we also find the source of peace, happiness, and flow…
The word “self-realization” is especially challenging to define, since what it refers to must be experienced to be understood, and yet the fullness of what is revealed is beyond intellectual understanding. Nevertheless, with a bit of good fortune, we may taste the nectar of self-realization by taking a little journey together.
Many Eastern wisdom traditions hold that reality, a.k.a. the world, is experienced as a projection of forms from a source that is beyond the forms projected, much like a movie appears on a screen thanks to a very bright light at the back of the theater. In the 20th-century analogy, the projector beams moving images onto a two-dimensional screen; and though the images are flat, people easily identify themselves with the activity happening in front of them. In the second decade of the 21st century, we are beginning to see holographic projections, in which the images produced are three-dimensional. Once this technology has been perfected, humans will have created a powerful tool for understanding “Maya” – the world of illusions, or divine display – by losing themselves in three dimensions.
Over the last five years certain inner sciences have been developing in connection with Sourcing The Way, which seem to be unique in terms of their potency. The intuitive guidance is saying that these are now ready to serve more widely.
Specifically, we are being called to offer:
Field Alchemy: What would you do with greater consciousness and self-awareness? Would you like to transform your life at the foundations? Radically accelerate your journey of evolution and awakening?
Essential Purpose: Why – the deepest why – are you here on Earth? What is your sacred role and noble contribution? What are the steps you can take now to live the path of greatest resonance?
These offerings work with individuals, groups, and entire organizations. In the case of individuals, Field Alchemy and Essential Purpose typically involve just 1-2 sessions.
We are also being encouraged to provide intensive retreat experiences:
Living Realization: Sourcing The Way has been gifted with the capacity to open vast spaces for inner transformation (personal and collective). As we follow the whispers of Spirit around the world, there is an opportunity to gather for transformational intensives in different places with people who are called, and who have the desire and courage, to go all the way on their journeys of Self-realization.
If the above resonates, please consider being in touch to explore what is ready to flower in and through you.
After a powerful first day at the September 2015 InClaritas retreat in Seattle, the following visual came to me as a way of understanding the essence of both InClaritas and Sourcing the Way (the strategic consulting company co-founded by Maria Bäck and myself).
In a flash I saw that group processes and deliberations, especially in matters of governance, typically involve a considerable amount of people “bumping up against” one another, on multiple levels. At the same time, I saw that much of this friction and conflict could be eliminated through awareness cultivation practices, and furthermore that doing so would unlock a group’s potential for collective flow and even genius.
