There is arising a new spirituality, experienced as a form of evolutionary consciousness. This consciousness is three-fold: Backward, Inward, and Forward.
It reaches backward in time and identifies itself as the whole process of creation, recognizing that within our atoms, molecules, cells, organs, brain is the whole story of creation. At the same time, this evolutionary consciousness looks inward to Source, to Pure Awareness, to Oneness and holds that as its center. And then it looks forward, yearning to express the creative impulse within, in spirit-motivated action on behalf of the evolution of the self and the world.
Evolutionary spirituality opens up the path of the cocreator. It is not a new religion. It is a new person. Its purpose and practices are to incarnate the Great Creating Process, to discover deeper life purpose, and to express that purpose through joining with others in the cocreation of a new world.
New Thought and Conscious Evolution
Conscious Evolution/New Thought (CE/NT) is a new initiative started by Barbara and Reverend Jim Lockard to create a synthesis between the principles and practices of New Thought, and those of Conscious Evolution.
New Thought is an over-a-century-old initiative to reframe Christianity around the recognition that God is within us. This point of view has given birth to Religious Science and Unity churches among others, and is at the forefront of the new evolutionary spirituality.
Conscious Evolution as a frame of reference is very aligned with New Thought principles. A synthesis of these perspectives will enhance the effectiveness of both initiatives in the 21st century, and a curriculum and new materials are in the works.
Some of this development is to be presented for the first time at the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT) conference to be held in Palm Springs October 3-7. Barbara’s Institute titled Experiencing the Communion of Pioneering Souls is planned for October 5.
