The Force Is With Us
Updated: Nov 12, 2022
The rediscovery of the evolutionary “Force” in the universe
brings us essential wisdom at today’s tipping point.
It tells us that there is a force for coherence
and wholeness in nature that we can go with.
It is beyond question that going with this force
is in our best and most urgent interest.
~ Ervin Laszlo, “The Upshift”
Yes, it is time that we all recognize the power that we have available within us and choose to move together at this “tipping point” where the energy appears to be moving in a downward spiral.
How can we contribute in this process for an “Upshift” to occur?
Years ago I realized this truth from Victor Hugo, “There is nothing more powerful than an Idea Whose Time Has Come”. A meditation center was founded and directed for 32 years. Even after my retirement, it is being sustained on this principle to this day.
A good example of this principle coming to life was when President Kennedy created his context of “a man on the moon in ten years.” This idea came to him and everyone thought he was crazy. What came up first were all the ways it wouldn’t work. In holding this context firmly he would respond to “it can’t be done” with “if it could be done, how would you do it?” Those who had oppositions to the idea went to work to try to figure out how it could be done. We all know the end of this story.
So, you may be asking yourself, “How can I be an instrument for creating “an idea whose time has come?” How do I align with this force in the universe and be a part of this “Upshift?” We can be used as instruments in the bigger picture and, even more directly, for ourselves in our day to day lives; with health situations, financial uncertainties, relationship problems, and overall tension and fear that may be present in our lives?
It's quite simple, really. Yet it isn't easy. We will initially want to try to "fix it" in some way and try to do something about it. What worked for me is to stop. Stop trying to figure it out. Stop stressing over it. Stop and sit with it.
In sitting with the situation begin by taking deep breaths. Breathing through any tense areas in your body. Allow your body to unwind and release all of the tension and tightness present.
Now, ask yourself this question:
"How would it feel, right now, if this were already complete, totally finished?"
Now, focus on the feeling that comes up with this question. This is a powerful question. It awakens a "Force" within you that slowly begins to erase the tension and stress over this situation.
Sit here for a few minutes. and enjoy the good feeling present. Be still and know ... all is well here.
You may notice out of this stillness and peace an idea, a plan, a direction comes up for you.
It feels just right for you. It's what's true for you.
This is your "Idea Whose Time Has Come."
As this idea unfolds for you, keep checking back into the good feeling of completion.
Use the question to refresh and align with completion, if something starts getting in the way.
Enjoy the ride.
The insight we now come to is
that evolution in the universe
is neither random, nor externally generated.
It is catalyzed by a cosmic evolutionary force:
present in every living being.
