Consciousness and Global Change | A Foundation for Spiritual Activism | a day long event

Global Oneness Project"May we be those who shall renew this existence."
- Zarathustra

"(...) I personally feel very strongly that those of us who have a spiritual awareness have a vital contribution to make, in a way that brings together our own inner awakening and inner awareness and the present global situation. specifically (...) the state of mystical oneness and its relationship to the whole of life."

What is awareness of oneness? Awareness of oneness is a simple spiritual practice in which we see that our essential nature is part of life. i was introduced to the concept of mystical oneness by a wonderful talk of Llewellyn Vaughan Lee titled, Awareness of Oneness. on many occasion while listening to this particular talk, many interesting doors of perceptions were opened which i am unable to put into words. i remember one time in Brunei in South East Asia while traveling alone on a river i was listening to this talk and i will never forget that experience of momentary oneness. it was so intense ... and also embarrassing as well. i remember the embarrassing part of trying to hide my unceasing flow of tears from other strangers on the boat.

You may listen to this talk and experience for yourself. Every momentary experiences are unique, so its unfair to expect what came to me will come to you, may be something more beautiful will unfold. as Llewellyn says, "We are a part of the living substance of God that is in constant motion as It reveals Itself again and again, “never in the same form twice.” Each moment is complete, and each moment is a part of life’s continual outpouring."

you may take some quiet time to listen...
