PART ONE: Redesigning God 

Goodbye to Yesterday’s God

The gift that you give is the gift that you experience.Giving transform Having into Being.I can imagine myself as “having” abundance, but only through the giving of my abundance to others that can I experience being abundant.

The miracle of giving is that we are giving only to ourselves.

Introducing Tommorrow’s God

Education is the key. It is the most powerful tool you have. Educate everyone. Tell everyone about God and about Life. Eliminate illiteracy, then eliminate functional illiteracy, then eliminate spiritual illiteracy.

The Creator and the Created are the same.

Nothing is observed is unaffected by the observer. In other words, the Creator and the Created are One, each creating the other.

Your message is your life, lived.

Others see their possibility in the reality of you. Be, therefore, a model to all the world.

It is important to be responsible only for the Self. You do your part, and do not worry about the person next to you. Otherwise, if you are not careful, you will be waiting for the person next to you. And they will be waiting for the person next to them. And so on. And nothing ever happens, nothing ever gets started.

Saving the World

The most immediate way for most human beings to expand their consciousness is to become conscious of the fact that they have a “consciousness.”
Having a consciousness is something of which you must become consciously aware. This is called self-awareness, and developing this can be a fairly easy thing.
The next 100 times you look at yourself in a mirror or reflection, do the Who Meditation.
Say the word “Who?” to yourself three times, for ten seconds each time, stretching the oo sound of “who”. You may do this aloud, or silently. Either way, stare directly at your own eyes in the reflection, take a deep breath, and ask, on a single breath, three times….
Whooooooooooo?
The question you are posing to yourself is, “Who is this? Who is this standing before me? Who is this being that I think I am? Who? Who?”
If you do this 100 times in the next 30 days, you will become aware of your Self. You may not have come to a full understanding of Who You Are, but you will come to an awareness that you ARE. That is, you will become Self-Conscious.
Once you know you have a Consciousness – that is, part of you that is larger than you, that can separate itself from the Little You and talk back to you – you are well on your way to discovering the truth of your being and stepping into enlightenment.
You will soon understand that enlightenment is experienced by not seeking to experience it. One does not become enlightened because one wishes to. One becomes enlightened because one is. That is, you are already enlightened, and simply now become aware of it.
It is awareness that we are talking about here. And now I will tell you a great secret. You cannot become aware of anything within yourself without seeing it outside yourself, and you cannot become aware of anything outside of yourself without seeing it inside of yourself.

When you are open to the Outside world, when you are moving in it and through it, keep keen your awareness of everything around you. Look at things as you have never looked at them before. Make every moment a meditation. See the cracks in the sidewalk the leaves on the tree, the petals on the flowers, the faces in the crowd. Practice seeing them all as You.
Just see yourself there. Don’t ask yourself what you are doing there or how you got there or how it is possible for you to be there, just see your Self there. Call yourself that. Do not say, “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” Rather say, “There, because of the grace of God, I go.”
“There I go again, being a street person without money. There I go again, being a flower in that field. There I go again, being a domineering spouse. There I go again, being a dictator in a foreign land oppressing my people. There I go again, being that blade of grass.”
Just see yourself everywhere. And smile when you see yourself there, knowing that you are there, and that what is there is in you.
Now then, set aside time each day to go to the world within. As you move through this inside world, lose all thoughts and images of the Outside World. Allow your mind to go blank. Breathe deeply and simply concentrate on the sound of your breath. Make your breath your mantra – the sound that takes you inside.
Now focus your awareness on a spot in the corner of your forehead, just above your eyes. Keep “looking” there with your inner eyes. Stare into the dark space of that nothingness until you “see” something. Keep focusing on your breath and look at what you see. Look deeply. Do not “put” something there, but wait until what is already there is opened to your consciousness.
Something will suddenly appear to you. To many, it will look like a dancing blue flame. You will not only see this flame, you will feel it. The feeling of it will wash over you. You will call this feeling Love. It may bring you to soft and gentle tears. Let that happen. And…
….say hello to your Soul.

Now, take this vision and this feeling of the Self that you have experienced in your inside World and place it in your Outside world, overlaying it on everyone and everything. You will soon fall in love with everyone and everything. You will have literally turned your world Inside Out.

This revolving, this revolution, will come to pass with humanity’s physical participation or without it. It does not need humanity for it to occur, and yet its occurrence will mean nothing without humanity.

Your brain is a part of your body. Your mind is not your brain, but you can open your mind using your brain.
Simply breathe in the Life that is all around you. Breathe deeply, with the natural rhythm of Life, for an extended period. Sit or lie quietly while you do this.
Yes, Now, as you inhale, feel yourself taking in the energy of Life. After breathing deeply for a while, imagine this energy of Life entering through a portal at the top of your head. Watch with you internal eye as it courses through your body. As you exhale, let it exit through your feet. Do this a number of times. Scan your body with your mind.
Now imagine filling your brain with this energy. Feel the oxygen fill your brain, feeding and nourishing the cells there. Feel the cells of your brain expand. Do this intentionally for seven minutes.
You may feel a little light-headed after this. Do not worry about that. You may feel light-headed because you will be light-headed. You have seen the golden-white light of the energy of life to your brain. You have directed it there, intentionally. This lightens your brain cells. You may feel a sense of enlightenment. With that physical feeling may come an increased awareness of Life, of everything around you. Do not be surprised if this occurs. You have opened your mind, exposing it to the gentle breeze of expanded consciousness.

Changing God’s Name

On humanity’s yesterdays most people who believed in God thought of God as Super Being, which allowed them to create a God in their mind who is like a person. In other words, a Bigger Version of themselves.
In thinking this way and constructing God in this way, they created God in the image and likeness of humans – which is exactly the opposite of what they said that God did.

But if I tell you that God is not a Super Being at all, but the process called Life, your theological apple cart is turned upside down. Suddenly, not only is humanity the image and likeness of God, everything else is as well. This changes your relationship with all things. Now, everything is one thing, and that One Thing is called God.

Human beings would never do the things they are now doing to the earth, much less the things they are doing to each other, if they thought they were doing all these things to themselves.

Now I said earlier that God is that which is Constantly present and Constantly Changing, suiting Itself to each moment, so that God may be understood in that moment, embraced in that moment, experienced in that moment, and expressed in that moment.
I also said that the words “God” and “Life” were interchangeable. And now what I want to tell you is that Life is a process of Change. This is why the words “God” and “Change” are synonymous.

In a sense, your old idea of God as that which never changes was correct. It was simply incomplete. It did not contemplate or consider that the one thing which never changed about God could be that God is always changing; that this could be the Constant.

All of life is energy in motion. Nothing stands still. Nothing. Not a single thing in the Universe is static. All is moving. And movement is change.

Everything is self-aware, but levels of self-awareness differ. Highly self-aware energy always seek to become more self-aware. Once an energy system becomes increasingly aware of itself, it seeks to become more self-aware.
The more you know, the more you want to know. The more you experience, the more you want to experience. This is the nature of Life.
Life seeks more Life through the Process of Life Itself.

The faster an energy vibrates, the faster it is going to vibrate.
An object in motion tends to stay in motion, and all objects are in motion.

All of Life, down to the tiniest cell, molecule, or sub-molecular particle, contains intelligence. This basic intelligence is built in. It is a cellular encoding. Because that is true, these tiny particles move in ways that make sense. Their movement produces a specific and predictable outcome.
This outcome is called Life.
At the macro level, it is called the cosmology of the universe. At the micro level it is called particle physics, superstring theory, and so forth.
Some of you call this built-in intelligence the “survival instinct.” All of your laws of physics and its predictability have been based on the understanding at which you have just arrived.
Now comes an interesting twist: At certain point in the Process of Evolution, Life Energy becomes aware that it is aware of itself.
It is Life becoming aware of what Life IS in its present form. It is supremely impacting, because it produces what I call the Separation Phenomenon. This is when an element of Life first has the “ideas” that it is separate from God. It is the First Pivotal Moment.
Prior to this moment, energy particles expressed themselves as part of an overall System. Their intelligence was experienced as the intelligence of the System.
In the First Pivotal Moment of self-discovery, an energy unit becomes conscious of Itself as part of the System, rather than as the System Itself. Its identity as part of the System soon expands into a thought that it is separate from the system.
This is the Great Oh-Oh of the Universe. It is the Mother of all Oh-Oh’s. Actually, that is true literally, because it gives birth to the next emerging process of Life: chaos.
Chaos? As in “chaos theory”?
Exactly. The thought of being something “other” than the System is what brings chaos to life.
While a unit of energy becomes self-aware, it is losing its awareness of the larger System of which it is a part, Its intelligence – which is really the intelligence of the System – is now experienced as its own intelligence.
An example of this is what is occurring right now.
 In what way?
You(the author) think that this is YOU talking, and really, this is ME. Part of you thinks that this explanation right now is something that is coming from your intelligence, and it is not, and could not be, because you don’t know any of this. Yet, because it came through you, you think it belongs to you. You think it is yours, and really it is ours.
(The intelligence, I am talking about, I am talking about the intelligence that is now bringing these words forth)
 Yeah right. Sometimes I do think that this is all coming from me. Even when I know better, I sometimes think that.
The intelligence IS coming from you. It is coming from the part of you that is me. That is, it is coming from the System, of which you are an intrinsic part.

Now the energy unit, or Life Form, experiences itself as part of a System again. It becomes aware that the more rapid is the vibration of its energy, the higher is its frequency, and the more impact it has on the energy around it.

Second Pivotal Movement: a disappearing of individual consciousness, a melting of it into the All in an experience that some Eastern mystics have called bliss or Nirvana.

Life is ruled by three basic principles: functionality, adaptability, and sustainability. It functions, or, having atrophied to the point of near dysfunctionality, it adapts, and having adapted, it sustains itself.

Bringing the Universe to Life

The Old Spirituality insists that Yesterday’s God created the heavens and the earth, while the New Spirituality says that Tommorrow’s God IS the heavens and the earth.

God is unified and one with everything, and breathes Life not into humans, but AS humans, and that humans may express and experience themselves as God-made-manifes, and may know that everything they touch and see and feel is likewise God in manifest Form.

The earth is a tiny part, a minuscule speck, in this unfathomably massive System, and you are a tiny part, a miniscule speck, within IT. And there are specks within YOU that, compared to the Whole of You, are tiny and miniscule. Yet no part and no speck of You is unimportant to the Whole of You, for each constitutes what that Whole IS. And so, too, is it with You and the Living System known as the All, which is Life itself.

Rupere Sheldrake, the groundbreaking biologist, talks of “morphic fields” that underlie the structure of systems such as our galaxy – and that exist within those systems as well, such as here, on earth. Sheldrake (in his book The Physics of Angels, written with theologian Matthew Fox) says that such fields actually animate those systems, giving them their habits and their capacity to organize themselves. “In this sense, molecules, stars, and galaxies are alive, not just microbes, plants and animals.”

How Religious Beliefs Create Civil Law

People become fanatics when they feel they are not being heard. People become fanatical when they feel their point of view is not being honored.
A point of view doesn’t even have to be accepted, but it does have to be honored. Because, you see, if you dishonor another’s point of view, it is as if you disappear it, discounting it as if it were not even there. And when you disappear it, discounting it as if it were not even there.

You’re Making It All Up

The moment you expect to be, you are not. The very act of expecting yourself to be something preludes you from experiencing it. You cannot “expect” to experience something that you are already experiencing. If you are experiencing something of yourself, that means you are not now experiencing it. Either you are experiencing something, or you are expecting to experience it. Expectation places what you wish to experience into the future. Remember that. Expecting something pushes it away from you.

You can create the best apple pie in the world, and still seek to create an even better one. You can know much about the world, and still seek to know more. This is called growth, and the urge to grow is not a negative energy, but a positive one. It is not a judgment, but a desire. It comes not from dissatisfaction, but from passion. The passion OF Life for MORE Life. This passion lies within you, and is the driving force behind all creation.

Judge not, and neither condemn.

Tommorrow’s God talks with everyone, all the time.
Yet the turn of phrase “a God with whom you can speak” can have a double meaning. It can mean that you are speaking “with” God – as in, “conversations with God” – and it can mean that God and you are speaking at the same time – as in, saying words “along with” me.
The first meaning is the meaning associated with yesterday’s God; the second meaning will be associated with Tommorrow’s God, God who speaks TO you and THROUGH you.

Until you see God in the face of your enemy, you cannot see God at all. For, in truth, there is no such thing as an “enemy”. There is only that part of you which is contrast to another part of you.

God exists in, as, and through all things. That God is absent from no one and nothing.

When someone has hurt you, you can do one of several things. You can (a)defend yourself, (b) attack back, or (c) find out what they thought their reason was.
Attacker feels that the one being attacked did something or is doing something to which a defensive response is required.

God is Love.
God is freedom.
God is joy.
God is peace.
God is unity.

You can act as if you are something you are not, but you cannot be something you are not.
“I will always see what you are being. I do not care what you are doing, because what you are doing is not who you are. I will always see you at the level of being.

Change yourself, change your world.

Yesterday has nothing to do with Who You Are. It has only to do with who you thought you were.

Here is a central tenet of the New Spirituality: the purpose – and the greatest opportunity and gift – of life is to re-create yourself anew in the next grandest version of the greatest vision you ever held about Who You Are. And you can do this in every single golden moment of Now.
The time of your transformation is at hand. It is always at hand. It is not a question of whether you “have what it takes,” but of whether you take what you have – and then use it.

If you have the desire, you will have what it takes – precisely because desire is what it takes.

You are affecting the All in All, right now. You can never not affect the All in All. You are affecting It because you are a part of it. What you do, It does. Especially that part of It that is in close proximity to you. You cannot do a thing without affecting the All, because you are It, and It is you. Therefore, what you do affects It, immediately and profoundly.

The Jesus Factor

The very fact that you are an individuated part of me means that, by definition, you cannot possess the Totality of Understanding, Recollection, and Knowing that the non-individuated Ultimate Reality you call God possesses.
For the same reason that a drop of the ocean does not contain the power of the ocean, even though it is made of the same stuff. It is identical in its composition and its characteristics and its qualities, but it is not the Collective, it is the Individuation, and the Individuation and the Collective are not equal.

“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bound or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? (I Cor. 12-16)

Jesus message was that he is greater than none, nor is any one greater than any other, for You All Are One, and a thing cannot be superior to Itself.

Foundations of The New Spirituality

We Are All One.

Tommorrow’s God will simply say, “I require nothing of you. You may do as you wish. I give you Free Will.” And Tommorrow’s God will mean it. She will not say, “ You have Free Will, unless, of course, you do not do as I require, in which case I will punish you forever.” What kind of Free Will is that? You are free to do what I want you to do?

Well, there is some good logic for you. You are free to vote, but if you don’t vote for me, I will have you shot. You are free to own your own business, but if you don’t give me most of the profits, I will have you fined and put out of business. You are free to speak, but if you say anything I don’t like, I’ll have you thrown into prison. No problem here. You have Free Will, right? You know, in the world in which you live, you call that kind of freedom a mockery. You call it a dictatorship.

Well, the Bible does say that we were made in the Image and Likeness of God.
And the Bible is right about that.
Then you are just a bigger version of us.
No. You are just a smaller version of me.

Life’s Secret Formula

The statement that you are made in the image and likeness of God does not mean that God is like you, but that you are like God.

A true Master is not the one who creates the most servants, but the one who creates most masters.

You are here to wake each other up.

When you give away that which you thought you lacked – love, compassion, companionship, money, anything – you suddenly experience that you had it to give all along. This changes everything. This turns your thinking completely around, allowing you to see that you have what you thought you lacked.
You have it. You have it. Now all you need to do is multiply it. It is impossible to multiply something you do not have. But now that you know you have it, you can expand that experience easily.
But remember, the experience ultimately has nothing to do with quantity. If you have a dollar and you give a quarter, it is as much as if you give a quarter million when you have a million. You cannot quantify beingness. You are either being Giving, or you are not. You are either being Loving, or you are not. “Givingness” cannot be quantified. Neither can love.

You cannot love one person “a lot” and another person “ a little”. You either love or you do not. How you demonstrate your love is another matter. Love may be demonstrated in many ways, but if it is love, it knows no condition, least of all condition of quantifiability.

Is God Needless?

Needlessness is the State of Being in which God resides. God needs nothing. You also, need nothing.

You did not have any needs. You were making it all up.

Life is obedient to Three Basic Principles. Life is functional, adaptable, and sustainable. When it moves toward the edge of functionality – when it cannot function much longer the way it is going – it adapts. Life on earth is about to adapt. It cannot go on like it is. Something is going to have to change, and it will. Life will not let Life down. It will adapt.

Unconditionality is a state of being having no condition at all.

So, Life exists, without any conditions. That means that God exists without any conditions. That means that Love exists without any conditions.

True love is unconditional. Love that places conditions is not love at all, but a counterfeit version of it. Real love, like the real God and like real life, knows no condition.

Love and fear, cannot exist simultaneously in the same space.

EVERY day is Judgment Day. Every moment is the Last Judgment. Everything you think, say, and do announces your judgment about yourself. Every act is an act of self-definition.

Every creative act is a last judgment because you don’t get to redo it. It is a one and only choice.

Wisdom is not having all the right answers, it is having all the right questions.

God is the Source of all that is creative. Answers are not creative. As soon as you think you have an answer, you stop creating. Answers kill creation.

The End of The Single Source

Search within, ask within, inquire within, seek within, go within – for if you do not go within, you go without. You go without answers that satisfy you, you go without peace that remains with you, you go without joy that emanates from you, you go without love that becomes you.
Love does become you – it makes you look very wonderful, indeed – and it turns into You while it turns You into it. That is what Love does. It is transformative. It turns everything inside out. Yet it, like wisdom, must come from within you – each of you – for the experience to be personal and lasting.

Nothing will kill the New Spirituality faster than the idea or impression that it is coming from One Individual Human Source. It IS coming from One Source, but not from one INDIVIDUAL HUMAN source. It is coming from the Single Source that flows through all humans – and indeed, through all of life – everywhere.

Do not say that the truth is exclusively “here” or exclusively “there”, but, rather, that the truth is “neither here nor there,” but everywhere.

Truth is found in Whole nowhere, and in Part everywhere. All of those sources(Qur’an, Upanishads, Bible, Bhagavad Gita, etc), taken singularly, contain incomplete understandings.

The living of your own life writes the book of your most sacred truth, and offers evidence to it.

PART TWO: The Fourth Transformation

New Ways For You to Experience God

Humanity cannot continue to resolve twenty-first century dilemmas with first-century guidelines – much less guidelines that came from before that time.
This is akin to going into a twenty-first-century operating room with first century healing tools.
Tommorrow’s moral, ethical, and social challenges cannot be met using eighteenth – or tenth – or sixth century understandings and instructions. Those instructions and those understandings were not “wrong”, they were not “bad”, they were simply incomplete.

Fundamentalist understandings of the holy scriptures of all your wisdom traditions are wise in many ways – and incomplete, and therefore dangerous, in many other ways. Honor the tradition, but expand the understanding. That is the trick now. That is what religions must do right now if they hope to be helpful to humans in the years ahead – or even to survive.
Honor your wisdom traditions, but expand their understanding.

For those who see themselves as witnesses, rather than participants, in the process of evolution, it will move more slowly.
The New Spirituality will never condemn traditional religion, but seek always to include it in the process by which divine truth continues to be revealed.
There are far too many treasures in your religious traditions to abandon them. The future of humanity with regard to religion is not about desertion, but dissection, not about rejection, but rejuvenation.

This will not occur through the leadership of one person, but through the leadership of many.

There is no area of your life that is not a demonstration of what you believe about Life Itself.
Politics is your spirituality, demonstrated.
Economics is your spirituality, demonstrated.
Education is your spirituality, demonstrated.
Relationship is your spirituality, demonstrated.
Sexuality is your spirituality, demonstrated.
Your life is your spirituality, demonstrated.

God does not call the qualified, God qualifies the called.

Those whose minds have not been closed, those whose hearts still beat boldly, those whose soul can yet be heard, will declare their membership on humanity’s team, and move with thunderous power and lightning speed to reclaim the future.

A Civil Rights Movement for The Soul

The first assignment for anyone wishing to seriously explore Tommorrow’s God and to personally live the New Spirituality will be to go within.
Begin a schedule of daily practice in meditation, deep prayer, silent listening, whatever you are comfortable with.
Exercise your body.
Third, eat well.

Smoking is eating the worst kind, because it is eating away at YOU – but you simply don’t seem to care. You don’t even care for those who deeply love you, for you are willing to deprive your spouse, your children, and your family of you by dying earlier than you were designed to, just so you can have your multiple nicotine hits each day.

When Life, rather than Instant Gratification, becomes your Prime Value, you will know that you have become truly spiritual.

Presently, most humans do not want to take care of themselves. They want someone else to take care of them.

If there is one thing that is doing you in, if there is an Achilles’ heel of the human race, here it is: Dependence

Only because you are dependent can you be oppressed by an unreasonable, violent God. Only because you are dependent can be oppressed by an unreasonable, violent government. Only because you are dependent can you be oppressed by an unreasonable, violent society, or an unreasonable violent economy, or even by unreasonable, violent schools – where now you have to not only educate yourselves, but defend yourselves. The second greatest weakness of your species is lack of interdependence.

To be “interdependent” is to be in a reciprocal relationship. To be “dependent” is to be abnormally reliant on something to the degree that it is physically or psychologically habit-forming.

Tommorrow’s God will not encourage any such thing. In fact, Tommorrow’s God will say, “You do not need me. You do not need religion. You do not need government. You do not need your employer. You do not need the social structures you have invented. They are your tools, you are not theirs. Use them for your convenience, do not be used by them for theirs.

Do not swallow anything whole, do not accept anything on someone else’s word, and do not “go along with the crowd” because it is the easiest thing to do.

Well, there are many authors whose books I(the author) would recommend, including Brad Blanton (Honest to God), Deepak Chopra (How to Know God), Ram Dass (Still Here), Wayne Dyer (There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem), Duane Elgin (Promise Ahead), Thich Nhat Hanh (The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching), Thom Hartmann (The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight), Robert Heinlein (Stranger in a Strange Land), Hazel Henderson (Building a Win-Win World), Esther and Jerry Hicks (Ask and It Is Given), Jean Houston (Jump Time), Barbara Marx Hubbard (Conscious Evolution), and Gerald Jampolsky (Love is Letting Go of Fear).
Also, Daphne Rose Kingma (The Future of Love), Dr. Illchi Lee (Brain Respiration), Rabbi Michael Lerner (Spirit Matters), Mary Manin Morrisey (No Less Than Greatness), Wayne Muller (Learning to Pray), Jack Reed (The Next Evolution), Don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements), Rabbi Jonathan Sacks (The Dignity of Difference), Robert Theobald (Reworking Success), Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now), Marianne Williamson (Everyday Grace), Paramahansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi and Gary Zulkav (Seat of the Soul).

Whole that is Greater than the Sum of Its Parts.

Standing firm in an “either/or” position rarely serves anyone – least of all, Life. You do not live in an “either/or” reality. The reality is “both/and.”

From your(the author) present point of view, it makes perfect sense, because you are standing firm in your black-and-white world. Yet if it’s true that “religions mean nothing if they mean everything,” then God would have to mean nothing, too, since God is everything.

Yet if God is “this” and not “that”, then something would have to exist that is “not God” – and such a thing is impossible.

Nothing exists, nor can exist, outside of God.

In the days of the New Spirituality many of your presently established religions will stop declaring that something can exists outside of God.

In the days ahead humanity will choose between Big God and Little God. Big God is the God That Is Everything, and Little God is the God that is Some Things, but Not Other Things.
In the world of Little God, God is the source of all things positive, and the Devil is the source of all things negative. This is how your major, exclusivist organized religions have resolved the duality between what you call the Positive and the Negative in your limited thinking.

When you deny the good in anything, when you deny the perfection of anything, you are seeing it as negative. In this you imagine that you are seeing Satan. SATAN is Seeing Any Thing As Negative.
Satan does not exist as a person. Satan is a State of Mind.
“See the perfection.” “All things are perfect.”

DEVIL is Denying Everything Valuable in Life! When we deny God’s perfection, calling anything in Life imperfection, we have got it all backward, we have lived backward. And “lived”, backward, spells “Devil”!

GOD is Getting Over Denial.

All of Life is a movement between the Macro and the Micro, between the largest and the tiniest expression of Itself. It is a pendulum process, a breathing in and a breathing out.

The human race has been in the process of expanding. Expanding its consciousness, expanding its awareness, expanding its state of being. Yet humanity is now making a decision, and the human race is holding its collective breath. You are asking, shall we become more, still more, than we are now, or shall we begin to become less? Shall we take in more air, even more life, or shall we stop expanding now, and begin to expel the air we have inhaled, releasing the life energy we have collected, and eventually starting the whole process over? Shall we inflate or deflate, expand or contract, become larger or become smaller?
It is no accident that your doctors call the act of breathing in “inspiration”. And so, do you choose inspiration or expiration?

When human see themselves as A PART of God, instead of APART from God, their whole perspective will change in such a way that life across the planet will become something it has never been before.

Tommorrow’s God and “Real Life”

To say that it is raining outside is not the same as saying that rain is bad.

God is all powerful, all creative, all knowing, unlimited, and everywhere present? And are these not the characteristics of one who is the essence of freedom itself?

Life will be rearranged to become part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

Enlightened societies are self-determining societies.

Throwing The Money Changers Out – Again

Your society and the values you have established for it have made it virtually impossible for a business that does not make a profit to stay “in business”.

In the days of the New Spirituality, wealth will be defined not as possessions and power, but as access and happiness.

Shift from a “possessions-and-power” economy to a “use-and-cooperation” economy. Not everyone needs their own vacuum cleaner. They simply need the use of one. Not everyone needs their own washing machine. They simply need the use of one.

Right now many humans are paying an enormous amount of money to own and hold things, most of which they use a tiny fraction of the time that they own it.

It is simply a matter of changing your “every man for himself” economy to a “highest good for all” economy.

In the book ‘The Next Evolution’, the book by Jack Reed, wrote that the world could change overnight if humanity simply changed its definition of wealth from “possession and power” to “use and cooperation”.

“Live simply, so that others may simply live.”

In the days of the New Spirituality, the economy will be transparent.

(Conversation with God, book 2) Business practices as placing two numbers on every price tag – “Our Cost/ Your Price” – so that consumers would know at the point of purchase what a company’s per unit profit margin is. Also, sending around to all employees within a company a sheet each month indicating the to-the-penny salaries and benefits of every person employed.

Instead of creating one massive economy, create lots of “little economies” all over the place.

Humanity’s greatest weakness is dependency.

In the days of the New Spirituality, there will be no disproportionate holding of wealth and resources, and abject poverty will no longer be allowed to exist.
In the days of the New Spirituality, it will be recognized that every human being has a right to the basics of Life and the ability to survive.

In the days of the New Spirituality, it will be recognized that natural resources belong to all.

Our Kids and God

Children spend hours in front of screens – TV screens, computer screens, video-game screens, movie screens. They are being, quite literally, screened out from Life Itself.
This process removes them from reality and places them into an imaginary world.

Tommorrow’s God will teach children never to be afraid to fail, because failure does not exist in God’s kingdom. Only effort exists, and effort is all that matters and all that counts, because every effort leads to an outcome that moves Life Itself forward – and forward is where Life yearns to go.

Tommorow’s God will teach children that there are no losers, only those who have lost their ways.

Education is the single most important tool that can be used in the transformation of humanity. Those who seize power and seek to hold on to it understand this very well, and that is why they do whatever they can do to curtail or control education and learning among their people. The way to control a population is to control a population’s mind, and the best way to do that is to being with the young.

I(the author) wonder if educators will ever acknowledge that most of those problems and challenges that today’s kids are going to have to face will be in the end have little or nothing to do with geometry, geography, biology, or history, and everything to do with fairness, tolerance, equality, and honesty.

In the days of the New Spirituality, coercion and punishment will not be part of the educational process.

Spanking a child after telling the child that he should never deliberately hurt others does not teach the child to “be better”, it only teaches him that physical violence is the way that people in control deal with problems. It models for the child the exact behavior you are asking the child not to demonstrate.

There is no such thing as Right and Wrong, there is only What Works and What Doesn’t Work, given what it is you are trying to do.

You do not want the child to simply stop her behavior, but to alter it. There is a difference. Punishment, or the threat of it, can perhaps work once in a while in getting another to stop a certain behavior – but the behavior will start up again in some very near future (as parents…and presidents…have learned), because punishment merely halt behavior, it does nothing to change it.

Well, I (the author) have to say that there are some education experts who agree with you, and who do not say that punishment is sometimes the best and only last resort. Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish did write a book on this subject alone, and it filled with priceless wisdom for teachers and parents. It is called How to Talk So Kids Can Learn – At Home and in School.

Many people do believe that God punishes human beings for not obeying his laws, and that human beings, therefore, have the moral authority and the responsibility to do the same to each other.

Emphasis in future schools will not be on getting children to duplicate(memorization), but to create. Duplication is one thing, creation is another.

In the days of the New Spirituality the focus of education will be on creation.

It will be, most important, about connecting their minds to their souls, connecting their bodies to their minds, and experiencing all three as one.

Creation Education will be centered around the following major messages that the New Spirituality will bring to children:
1. You are One with everyone and everything in the Universe – including God. All things are part of One Living System
2. Because you are One with God, you have the power to create what you wish to experience in your life
3. The way you create is by what you think, say, and do.
4. It is not possible to make a mistake in the process of creation, and failure is an illusion. Everything that you create is perfect just as it is – including you.
5. When you create, you are fulfilling the purpose of your life, because creating is how you grow and evolve, and that is what you and all living things are on earth to do.
6. Life itself is your greatest teacher, and it has built-in consequences, but never punishments. Punishments is not a part of God’s plan, and has no place in God’s Kingdom. Learning was always meant to be easy – it is actually a process of remembering what your soul has always known. This kind of “learning” will be joyful when you use the experience that you are now having to remember as much as you can about Life. Then you will remember what you need to remember when you need to remember it to make life work in the future.
7. Try never to harm another person, place or thing in any way, but only to help others and love them as best you can, especially when they have made a mistake or have done something wrong. If you can do this, you will create a friend of just about everyone you know, and when you need one, you will never be without one.
8. There is enough for everyone. It takes very little to be happy, and the fastest way to create happiness for yourself is to create happiness for another.
9. Your very best friend is Life Itself, because it never ends. When portion of your life that you spend on earth is over, there will be no “Judgment Day,” no condemnation, and no punishment, but simply an opportunity for you to review all the thoughts, words and actions of your life and decide whether, as you go on to other adventures, you wish to choose again when confronted with similar circumstances. Choice is the process by which you evolve, and ultimately experience Who You Really Are.

The Three R’s that you would teach your children about are not nearly as important as the Three R’s that Tommorrow’s God will invite you to teach your children about.

Children do learn to read, write and work with numbers, but only as tools which they can create Reconciliation, Re-creation, and Re-unification.

In the days of “the New Spirituality the priority of education will no longer be the dissemination of facts, but the increasing of sensitivity and awareness and understanding and compassion and acceptance and celebration of and appreciation for the awe and wonder of Life.

Every teacher should be first, a teacher of humanity, and then a teacher of a subject.

These subjects(geography, history, etc) will be shared with children not as things to learn merely for the sake of learning them, but as things to use while they are learning the things that they came to learn.

When creation is experienced as fun, using the tools that it takes to create will be something that every child will want to do. They will not have to be convinced to do it.

There is no such thing as a “purely academic subject”. Everything has to do with Life, and the problem with your schools is that, too often, this connection is not made. Students do not see the relevance of what they are being required to learn, and so they do not want to learn it. When children have a reason to learn something – a reason they agree with – you will never see learning faster. Children can learn the most complex computer program in minutes, leaving adults in the dust. They have figured out how to operate the new TV remote before their parents have finished reading the instructions. They are the only ones in the house who know how to set the timer on the VCR.

All that children want to understand is, “Why do I have to know this?”
What will work is drawing a circle of relevance around a subject. This can best be done by not teaching the subject at all, but teaching something entirely different – something in which the child does have an interest. You might even ask the child on any given day what it is that they would like to learn.

In the days of the New Spirituality, the function of education will be to draw a Circle of Relevance around the raw data and systems that support Life.

The children will be engaged in exploring and experiencing life concepts, with a fact or an equation or a method or a formula not being learned as an end in itself, but used as a means to an end.

An early message of the New Spirituality is that you create your own reality, and much time will be spent in Creation Education opening children to their natural abilities, including their psychic abilities and their manifestation abilities.

The adults can be one of those who provides the “Creation Education”. You can offer classes right now in the New Spirituality, bringing people together on a weekly or biweekly basis, and exploring all of what Creation Education will be saying to children in the years ahead.
Author: How can people do that? How can people give a class in what they don’t even know?
The best way to learn something is to teach it. Go ahead and offer the class. Call it an informal study group in the New Spirituality. Go out and get some of those wonderful books mentioned earlier and build a program around them. Give the group reading assignments and then bring it together to discuss the material.
Create a learning environment in which the “teacher” is doing as much exploring as the “students”. You do not have to know everything there is to know about something in order to teach it. You need merely to have to want to know more about it, and be willing to share your growth process with others.
Remember that good teachers do not try to put something into, but rather seek to bring something out of, every student.
Author: It is not about putting in, it is about tapping in.
And so, in your study group, your job is to pull the wisdom out of the others, not to put your wisdom in there. To pull the wisdom out of others, you need to know nothing. In fact, the less you think you know, the better.

In the days of the New Spirituality, education will be more about creating, not a school, but a learning environment.

God’s Way in Relationships

In the days of the New Spirituality human relationships will be completely re-created in both purpose and process.

The purpose of a relationship is to create joy and happiness, completion and fulfillment, through the sharing of life with another.

In the days of the New Spirituality human relationships will no longer be seen as a means of need fulfillment.

Humanity will understand that need is an illusion, and while human beings may choose to dance in that illusion and play with that illusion – much as a magician who enjoys his own tricks – people will ultimately understand that the purpose of life’s most holy experience, union with another, is not about fulfilling needs.

If you are finding something, you do not have it, and if you do not have it, you will imagine that you need it.

You can only create something out of something you have.

If you think that the purpose of a relationship is to “find” something, then you will be continually looking for it. You won’t experience that it is inside you, because you wouldn’t be trying to find it if it were inside you. So you will be looking for it outside you – namely, in the person that you call your beloved.
If, on the other hand, you think that the purpose of a relationship is to “create” something, then you will be bringing to the relationship what it is that you wish to experience there. You will see yourself as the source of what you choose to create, because the creator of anything IS the Source.

In the absence of that which you are not, that which you are, is not. In the absence of “bad”, “good” is not.

You cant have one without the other in the Realm of Relative. This is not true in the Realm of the Absolute, where All That Is is All That Is.
In the Realm of the Absolute, nothing exists in relationship to anything else, for the simple reason that there isn’t anything else.

What God chooses to do is to Know Itself in Its Own Experience. This is God’s holy purpose: to know Itself Wholly.
God can know Itself conceptually easily enough. God merely has to think about Itself. Yet for God to experience itself, God has to encounter something that God is not. Only through such an encounter can God experience what God is.
The conditions however, that is there is nothing that God is not. And, I will repeat, in the absence of that which you are not, that which you are, is not.
God found a solution in this situation, however. God reasoned that since nothing other than God existed, God would have to create something that appeared to be “other than” God out of Itself. God did this by dividing Itself into a billion or more (actually, many more) smaller parts – and each of those parts would be something other than the Totality of God.
In this way, any individual part could know the Totality, and the Totality could know each individual part, and God could experience Who and What God Is.
And so, the Realm of the Relative was created, and along with it, relative experience. Now, all of the parts of God can experience themselves as Who and What They Are in relationship to Who and What everything else is, and thus know both the Individuality and the Totality of God – the magnificence and the wonder and the glory of the All, and of All That Comprises the All in Its Various Parts.

Something that is “bad” according to your terms, has to exist in your experience in order for you to experience something that you call “good”.

(Author)Well, that explains a lot. Now I understand why life is so often a pile of –
But here is what you would call the “good” news: The “bad” that has to exist in your experience does not have to exist in your immediate experience. It means that the so-called other side or opposite of what you wish to experience may exist either in your past, or in some location far away from you – such as the most distant location in your universe. It merely has to be something of which you are aware. It has to be part of your consciousness.
Now you can reach into this Contextual Field of memory and distance – what you have called Time and Space – and find the opposite of any experience you presently choose to have. You do not have to draw the opposite to you. You need only to know that it exists. Thus it is said that “Knowledge is Power.”

“Good” and “bad” are simply your point of view. From another perspective, what is “bad” might be called “good”. So life is just a matter of perspective.

You are living the story you have created, as a playwright who has fallen asleep and is dreaming that he is living his own script.

In the days of the New Spirituality all people will understand the purpose of relationship and the Process of Life, as well as their role in it, and they will bless the process and call it holy, they will engage the process and call it adventure, they will experience the process and call it joy – and they will complete the process and call it Nirvana… they to happily begin the process all over again at the time of their choosing in the never-ending cycle of bliss that is Creation itself.

If you feel alone within, if you feel incomplete inside yourself, you will search outside yourself for the rest of your life to find that which cannot be found. And, after experiencing this over and over, you could wind up with a series of relationships that do not last.

The relationships don’t last because you do not understand what you are doing there. You are trying to find fulfillment rather than create joy. You are trying to find completion rather than create completion. You believe that relationship is a process of discovery and it is not. It is a process of creation. The same thing can be said about Life.

You don’t need a relationship to create joy and happiness and completion. It’s all “within”. You use a relationship to experience it. Like God, you create relationships in order to experience who you are within.

In the days of the New Spirituality it will be clear that all relationships begin and end and are created with and within the human soul.

What you do not have within, you cannot live without.

(Author) Clever. But if I cant “live without it,” yet I do not have it within, how do I get it there?
Not from the other person in your relationship, I can tell you that. Put that burden on your beloved, and they will never be able to carry it. They will run from you as fast as they can. They will see that there is a hole within you that they cannot possibly fill even if they tried.
The purpose of relationship is not to find completion, but to share your completion. Not to find joy, but to share your joy. Not to find happiness, but to share your happiness.
If you are not happy going into a relationship, you will have no happiness to put there – and in human relationships, I will say again, you only find what you put there.
This is true of all of Life.
So relationship exists as a Contextual Field, as a holder or container into which you can pour all that you are. You can then reach into that and pull out whatever aspect or aspects of yourself you now wish to express and experience. Yet you cannot pull out of that container anything that you have not put in. You will be making the biggest mistake of your life if you are waiting for someone else to supply it for you.
(Author) In short, a relationship is about giving, not about receiving.
It is about both. But what you receive in relationship you receive from yourself. Your illusion is that you receive it from another. And so, what you receive is only what you give.

In the days of the New Spirituality, love and freedom will be understood to be the same thing.

All choices have outcomes. Yet outcomes are not punishments, they are results.

As I observe humanity, I would say that in the best case scenario all relationships between people, including marriage, are experienced as a constant ebb and flow, a continuing and ever-changing process, in which there are no rules or restrictions, in which the only agreement is to tell the truth right here, right now, and in which preferences are openly announced and decisions and choices openly made and outcomes openly embraced as the natural consequence of the ebb and flow itself.

In other words, everyone gets to say what they choose, do what they choose, and be what they choose, and if one’s choice impinge upon or prevent the happiness of the other, then the other gets to say that, and if the same choices continue to be made, then the other gets to make their choice, and so goes the process, free choice after free choice, in the name of Love and Life Itself.
In this scenario, there are no victims and no villains, no spouses or partners in the “right” or in the “wrong” but only awake, aware, conscious beings consciously observing and consciously choosing the continuous co-creation.

In the days of the New Spirituality, relationships will not include blame and judgment or victim-villain scenarios, but will be understood to be co-creative experiences in which all parties take responsibility for their choices and decisions.

What human like to do, however, is freely make a choice, then declare that they had no choice. This allows them to make themselves the “victim” and someone else the “villain”.

To say that you had no choice is to give your mastery away.

The bottom-line purpose of relationship is to evolve.

Evolution is the bottom-line purpose of everything. And there is no faster way to evolve than through the process of your exterior relationship with another.

Sex and Spirituality

Tommorrow’s God says that every church is “his church”, and every faith is “her faith”, and every soul is God’s soul, because it shares the same soul with God! And no person or living thing in the universe stands outside of the community of God.

It is true that too much emphasis on anything produces imbalance and depletion of energies. Too much work, too much eating, too much drinking, too much sugar, gardening, bowling, swimming, TV, carrot juice, sex… too much of anything – even too much spiritual practice – can create an imbalance.

Sex is Synergistic Energy Exchange.

(Author) Still, sexual crimes are rampant in our society.
That is because sexual repression is rampant. Wherever you see sexual repression, you will see sexual crime and sexual dysfunction.

The Way to Enlightenment

Every time you go within, search with a pure heart and deep desire to know your highest truth, you will receive it. All you have to do is listen to what you have to say to yourself – and then trust that.

(Author) To put this another way, God, or divinity, or enlightenment, if you please, appears in a form in the lives of every person that is most appropriate to their background, their culture, the level of their understanding, the level of their desire, and their willingness.
This very conversation, this book that many will be reading, falls into that category. For some, it will be perfect, the perfect tool of communication. For others it will not, and they will not even have read this far and will not know what is being said here.

(Author) The Buddha said, in effect, “I’m enlightened because I have realized that enlightenment is knowing that there is nothing you have to do to be enlightened.”

(Author) Nothing matters. If nothing matters intrinsically, then I am free to declare what I choose to have matter to me. But if something matters intrinsically, that is to say, if something matters to, shall we say, God, then I had darned well better figure out what that is, because if I don’t figure out what it is, I will be the thing called condemned, or at the very least, unenlightened. We are free to make matter what we choose to make matter in our lives. And I mean in two ways: not only to make matter, but to make something into matter, to manifest in physical reality something out of invisible energy. To turn it into, to turn energy into, matter.

(Author) Enlightenment, when it is all said and done, has nothing to do with what you do with your body and your mind. It has to do with what you do with your soul.

(Author) When you have so much happiness, peace, wisdom, and joy that you spend your life sharing it with everyone else, no matter what your predicament, that is enlightenment. You have become a master. When your life is no longer about you, has nothing to do with you, but is about everyone else whose life you touch, you have become a master. In the end, this is why you came here. You did not come here to somehow “get better” or to “work on your stuff”. Consider the possibility that all the work you will ever need to do is finished. All you have to do now is know that.

Stop working so hard on yourself that you don’t even enjoy it anymore. Do what works for you, but make sure it bring you joy.

(Author) You want to know the fastest way for anyone to experience that they are enlightened?
Yes, can you tell me? Can you really tell me?
(Author) The fastest way of all for anyone to experience that they are enlightened is to cause another to know that THEY are.
That is the message of Tommorow’s God. That will be the teaching of the New Spirituality. That is why Namaste has become such a powerful tool, such a meaningful and special exchange of energy:
“The God in me sees and honors the God in you.”
There is nothing more to be done if we really mean that. Of course, if we are saying that because it sounds good, then there is a great deal more to be done. But if we really mean that – if, when we say that, we really mean that – then the struggle is finished, the search is over, and enlightenment is ours at last.

HOPE OF HUMANITY
(Written and copyrighted by Don Eaton, 2003)

I see so many people lost in despair.
They have no hope, and they cant find their way.
But I still believe that there is a fire in some hearts.
And that a few courageous souls will dare to say:

I am the hope of humanity.
I am a bringer of the Light.
My love will help to heal the world’s insanity.
I am a candle in the night.

Now some may call it arrogance or say it’s vanity.
To think that we’re part of what dreams may come true.
But do you imagine I could feel this Light inside myself
If I hadn’t seen it shining first in you?

You are the hope of humanity.
You are a bringer of the Light.
Your love will help to heal the world’s insanity.
You are a candle in the night.

Now I’ve been very blessed to travel
With some strong and humble hearts,
A family of those who’ve heard the call.
And I’ve bathed in their heartlight and I’ve come to understand
There’s just one reason we are here at all.

We are the hope of humanity.
We are a bringer of the Light.
Our love will help to heal the world’s insanity.
We are the candles in the night.
