Inner Landscapes Activists’ Community-of-practice

____Activists attempt to move socio-political reality from point A, to an improved point B.
____Physicists create models of reality.
***Quantum mechanics and digital physics in particular have arrived at the same non-material understanding of reality as a probability distribution in which consciousness, not “bits” of matter, is the fundamental stuff of reality.
___Mystics tap into and experience a much wider swath of reality than most — including non-material reality.
____Contemplatives employ the practices and tools that facilitate arrival at a broad, mystical, exerience of reality.
____We are all now standing in the same space, sharing the same understanding and experience of reality. There is a confluence of wisdom and experience that activists, enabled by discoveries in physics, neuroscience, and using contemplative tools, are  bringing to bear on their social transformation work from a wide-angle perspective and a vantage point of unprecedented clarity.

Community-of-Practice Democratizes “Esoteric” Quaker Mysticism

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Quaker Friends speak of a state of “unity.” Mystics worldwide describe resting in and obtaining guidance from undifferentiated consciousness as the ultimate state of bliss.

The Quaker Pathways Forward community-of-practice takes the mystery [but not the awe] out of “mystical.” We usher the mystical experience out of the esoteric closets of the few by participating together in practices which democratize the opportunity for ALL interested Friends to co-create with spirit. The community-of-practice cultivates Friends’direct, frequent, and sustained experience of the light —the undifferentiated field.
A “Mystical experience” is where deep contemplative practice melds with reality as a probability distribution as explained by quantum science, digital physics, and neurobiology.

In community, Friends foster and hone ongoing, conscious alignment with universal intelligence lived daily, for their evolution, and that of society. Continue reading Community-of-Practice Democratizes “Esoteric” Quaker Mysticism

Love is THE Evolutionary Spark

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
We are called to reclaim, live, and become the TRUTH of —Love— . Deep, impersonal, all-abiding love,   —the “evolutionary spark,” is impervious to the onslaught of our culture’s attempt to  commercialize, trivialize, and commodify it.

Becoming and being love connotes experiencing and transmitting the joyous “evolutionary spark” which propels our growth toward ever greater conscious alignment with the larger consciousness system.  

BECOMING LOVE: is to consistently expand our awareness beyond the self, (personal avatar-centeredness*), into Self (larger frame of consciousness). This means to live into —  intentionally experience our oneness with others and with ALL. When that experience becomes the norm it pervades, and conditions our relationships and we become universal love receivers, generators, and transmitters at once.

Supports to Practice: Quaker Resources on Mysticism, Quantum Science, Contemplation, and Quaker Revitalization

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
There is a plethora of excellent Quaker and resonant material in use around mysticism, quantum science, contemplation, and the revitalization of Quakerism. There are as many pathways toward the goal of “being love” in service to the planet as there are Quaker Friends.

Therefore members of the Quaker Pathways Forward – Rekindling the Fire of Fox community-of-practice are enthusiastically encouraged to avail themselves of the publications, programs, curriculum, retreats, training, and study guides which enhance spiritual deepening. These are “supports to our practice” – tools that help to purposefully focus intent.

Some seminal offerings are listed herein. Continue reading Supports to Practice: Quaker Resources on Mysticism, Quantum Science, Contemplation, and Quaker Revitalization
