The Harmony of these Seven Elements
Produces FULL LIFE
The "seven-storey nature of man" may be likened to a seven-story house whose six upper stories rest on the bottom or foundation story. It is a full house. In the case of human nature, the base story is the physical aspect or body of man. Unlike a house which may be complete with only a single story, man is created in such a way that in order to operate as a fully-functioning being he must dwell in a seven-story house. Moreover, there must be harmony in the house if there is to be health for the individual and society. Without harmony the individual functions poorly. We might say he is malfunctioning. This usually happens when a person ingnores, neglects are abuses one or more of the strories of his house.
A QUANTUM LEAP IN SPIRITUAL ACTUALIZATION
A human transformation that couldn't, wouldn't and didn't happen in ages - during all recorded human history and it is probably correct to say in all human existence - is now within human reach. A human transformation appears to be imminent.
Transformation, the result of evolution, has been considered possible only by a few higher consciousness people. Others have rejected the idea. There is a point or place in existence when time is either in suspension or it is nebulous. It cannot be considered a barometer for measuring or determining adventful phenomena such as a human transformation. At this point when time dissolves into timelessness it becomes the "fullness of time" which bears no resemblance to clock time or calendar time. It is then that things, including time, which appears to be and were accepted as being true, based on our limited understanding and perception of reality, and to repeat: things that wouldn't, couldn't and didn't occur during a million years or the whole of human existence and were designated by those we accept as being our most reliable authorities, as "impossible occurrences," - happened, "things that cannot be" instantaneously in the eternal now.
When such an apocalyptic occurrence which is contrary to human "conceptualization of the possible" and the "law of probability" transforms not just an individual or tribe but impacts in a revolutionary manner the human race it cannot be called a miracle, even though it is miraculous, to say the least. We are compelled to acknowledge it for what it is, a "quantum leap" - the catapulting of man into Paradise where he will again experience life in all its fullness on a higher level than was possible for him when he occupied the Garden of Eden. This, then is more than Paradise, in the classic or traditional sense of the term. Evolved and enlightened man whose consciousness has been heightened cannot claim innocence any longer or re-enter Paradise by the route of innocence. Now, with the end of innocence he can only return, as it were, to Paradise on a higher level than when he was in innocence. Even if it was possible for him to return to Paradise in his prior Paradise state he could not do so and be creative and happy. Man's entry into Paradise has to be on a higher level than original man, a level that is commensurate with his higher consciousness. The new Paradise can be defined as a state of "pure consciousness."
Man's entry into the new Paradise should not be considered to be regaining or rediscovering Paradise but discovery and /or creation of Paradise. Paradise, is in part, created by man, who now because of his higher consciousness, has a readiness which he did not have before to claim and occupy an inheritance which has been bequeathed to those of higher consciousness. The mandate given to man by his Creator, at the beginning, was "the earth is yours - partake of her riches, have dominion over her and enjoy the fruits she yields."
In a quantum leap forward from their more animal-like rather than more God-like predecessors, the Neanderthals, some 100,000 years ago - 65,000 years before being abruptly replaced by Cro-magnons - invented language, art, music and mystical teachings and laid the foundation of commerce, class distinction and even fashion. Cro-magnons are the supreme accomplishment of that quantum-like leap.
Call this birthing of Humanity Being - maybe, certainly not Armageddon... a new creation - a second quantum leap or man's evolution. This second time around quantum leap cannot be considered a re-occurrence of the earlier quantum leap in cultural evolution which occurred a hundred millenniums ago. It is a revolutionary - apocalyptic: spiritual ad cosmic consciousness advancement. Ecologically, this state of consciousness is about man and his relationship to the world and the Cosmos. This advanced state of human existence differs from a utopia in essentiality. Spirit and consciousness characterize this transformational process rather than materiality and political power which are chief features of an utopia. The transformational process results from synchronization of the seven elements which constitute human nature, i.e., physical, mental, emotional, economic, social, political and religious. When this occurs there is harmony within the individual, between man and man and man has a sense of belongingness - being one with the Cosmos. Man's quantum leap forward into "spiritual actualization" transforms the individual and society and creates a condition which can best be described as the Ultimate Community or World House.
The prognostication can be stated in this manner: In the practice of a "Religion of Transcendence" man does not merely endure and prevail, he takes a quantum leap and - by leaps and bounds - claims victory which was always his, but at first being a creature of innocence and after that being restricted or relegated to lower consciousness he didn't know who he was, i.e., until he received enlightenment which seems destined to compel him to take a quantum leap that will catapult him into "pure consciousness." As a transcendent being living in the transformational process, also called the "Full Life Process," man will not only enjoy the fruits of the earth but will enter, in actuality, beyond, into that dimension which until now, has been available in an operational sense to only God and a few human beings, included among them were Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Buddha. Man is destiny to live victoriously and enjoy eternal peace on earth. This is our message and faith - our commitment to full life in the eternal now as we dwell in the World House and it is the abiding evidence that "We chose life in all its fullness."
"The Seven Story Nature of Man" is our saga and we must tell it over and over again, until man and society are transformed into Humanity Being and Community being, respectively, and the lifestyle of perpetual celebration reigns on earth no less than the presence of the Creator Himself.
