Are You a Cultural Creative? ~ Owen K Waters

 

Are You a Cultural Creative?

The Shift to the New Reality is real, and it has been gathering steam since the 1960s.
 
In "The Cultural Creatives," Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson detail a comprehensive study of more than 100,000 adults in the United States. They found that, since the 1960s, a huge 26 percent of these adults have made a comprehensive shift in their culture - their worldview, values and way of life. A 1997 survey conducted in fifteen European countries shows that the figures are highly similar in Europe. The following is a summary of the typical values of this new culture.
 
Cultural Creatives love nature, respect the Earth and are deeply concerned about the environment. They like to develop close relationships with each other, and to help and encourage other people to develop their abilities. They care about personal and spiritual development, and want more equality for women and all cultural groups.
 
Cultural Creatives would like to develop a new way of life. They are cynical of media-fed information, and want to find a new political philosophy that works in today's reality. They are not materialistically driven, and typically have their finances and spending under control. They like traveling to other countries to get to know new cultures and they want to develop a sense of community where they live. Authenticity is important to Cultural Creatives; that their actions are consistent with their words and inner beliefs.
 
In the early 1960s, there were too few Cultural Creatives to measure in surveys. At that time, American culture was split evenly between two cultural groups - the Moderns and the Traditionals. Moderns reflect an ethic which actually goes back as far as the Renaissance, when European Protestantism freed the population to pursue a self-empowered work ethic rather than continue to give their power, freedom and sense of initiative away to authority figures.
 
The ethic of Modernism is that newer, bigger and faster are all better. Time is money, they believe, and people with more knowledge and wealth are perceived as having higher status. Almost half of American adults today are Moderns. Their self-empowered principles over the centuries have brought progress to civil freedoms, democracy, justice and equality. Moderns tend to believe that theirs is the only way and reject the values of other groups as being incorrect.
 
The positive contributions of Moderns can be appreciated when you consider the quality of life which existed before the Renaissance. At birth, in those days, your fate was sealed. You were born into a certain social, ethnic and racial group at a certain location. You would likely never travel more than 50 miles from your birthplace during your life. What work you could perform, and whom you would marry, were predetermined. You would be compelled to believe certain doctrines, as dictated by rulers, priests and elders.
 
Traditionals are the ones who historically react against the changes brought about by Moderns. They wish for a return to an older, simpler time, and they oppose modern trends such as equality for women. They believe that patriarchs should again dominate family life, that men should be proud to serve in the military, and that their moral values should be forced upon others. In post-World War II America, Traditionals formed half of the adult population. Today they number less than one-fourth of the adult population. Many have passed away, while some have converted into becoming Moderns or Cultural Creatives.
 
Within the Cultural Creatives are two distinct sub-groups. Almost half of the Cultural Creatives form a Core Group of more intense, leading-edge thinkers. The others are the Green Cultural Creatives, whose focus is directed externally, towards ecology and environmental issues, rather than towards inner personal development.
 
The trend-setting Core Group is typically into alternative health care, often as health care practitioners, and most of them want to develop more inner self-awareness. They shun the materialism of the Moderns and the intolerance of the Traditionals toward other peoples.
 
Cultural Creatives cross all types of demographic groupings. They can be of any adult age category, they can live anywhere, and have any spiritual or religious affiliation. Less than ten percent of them identify themselves as New Age. Interestingly, there are just as many New Agers within the ranks of the Moderns as there are within the Cultural Creatives. The ratio of women to men is fairly equal in the Greens Group, while the Core Group contains 67 percent women. Many of the New Age Moderns are men who are still chasing the boys' toys of modern technology and haven't yet settled down to finding a deeper meaning within themselves.
 
Compared to other groups, Cultural Creatives read more books and magazines. Half of them are regular book buyers. They watch less television and are particularly unhappy with the quality of television news. They support, and become involved in, the arts. They like well-made, durable products, natural food, personal growth and alternative health care. They have a holistic attitude; that body, mind and spirit should work together. Their homes may well be buffered for privacy by old-growth trees and large shrubs. Inside, these homes are typically decorated by craft pieces, books and original art pieces which have special meaning to them.
 
Their culture is one of silent trailblazing. Most of them have no idea that there are countless millions of people just like them with the same values and lifestyle. When they discover that 25 percent of the adult population are just like them, they are truly shocked and surprised.
 
Cultural Creatives, it could be said, are the silent revolution. Imagine how much more transformative their effect on society will be when they evolve into networking, voicing their values and forming representative movements.
 
Cultural Creatives are a newly emerging type of humanity. They hold the seeds of a new, sustainable culture, a culture where "quality of life" replaces "standard of living."

Your True, Inner Self ~ Owen K Waters

 

Your True, Inner Self. 

by Owen K Waters

January 27, 2019

 
Spiritual Dynamics Newsletter

Your inner self is your complete self. Often referred to as your soul or higher self, your inner self includes all aspects of your consciousness as an individual.
 
Your inner self encompasses all levels of your consciousness - subconscious, superconscious and waking consciousness. You can think of your waking consciousness as an "outer self," because it's function is to focus upon a world which has the appearance of being external. The human brain is designed to translate the concepts of space and time into something that appears real. Your outer self's focus is directed at the physical world, which it perceives through the five physical senses.
 
People habitually think of their soul as being something elsewhere, and not something that encompasses their waking consciousness. They also think of the world as being "out there" rather than what it really is - an internal projection of theatrical props which make life appear to be a real drama.
 
It is more useful to use the term "inner self" to describe the complete self because, compared to the external world, it appears to be inside of you.
 
When you look at the reality of life, everything is inside of you. As a spark of Infinite Being, the entire universe is inside of you because the universe was created within the consciousness of Infinite Being. The definition of "Infinite Being" is "consciousness which encompasses all." Nothing can be outside of an all-encompassing consciousness, therefore all must be within and, as an aspect of Infinite Being, it is within you.
 
Before you were born, you carefully planned the possibilities for this incarnation. Your inner self had access to all of the probabilities which would unfold in your current life, thus enabling you to make a life plan. You examined several possible lives and chose this one for the experiences that it would let you explore.
 
Think of your inner self as a nonphysical, spiritual personality which chose to enter your body at the time of birth. Gradually, over a period of months, your conscious mind formed a greater attachment to this new body and eventually became completely identified with it.
 
The current system of incarnation on earth involves spiritual amnesia - we are born with blank physical memories as part of the challenge of reconnecting with our spiritual essence during physical incarnation. That system will change in the coming centuries as human consciousness rises to new challenges and opportunities but, in the meantime, it still provides a fresh start to every incarnation that we choose to experience.
 
Each incarnation occurs in different locations and historical times, with different sets of parents and societal environments. This creates the opportunity for you to play many roles as different personalities. Your inner nature does shine through into your outer personality as an influence, but the variety provided by different incarnations is enormous. Imagine, over the last two thousand years, experiencing incarnations as a centurion defending Rome against the barbarians, then a quiet life as a peasant farmer's wife in Spain, then plying the Mediterranean trade routes as first mate on a spice ship, then as an English nun and finally a talk show host. Now that's variety!
 
Personalities vary from life to life because of the societal environment in which they are formed. Shining through that outer personality, however, is the real you, your spiritual inner self. The wisdom of knowing how to handle a challenge often comes from the inner knowing gained from the experience of countless lifetimes.
 
You can get in touch with your inner self if you take the time to simply go within using a meditation technique such as the Infinite Being meditation (see below).
 
In that contemplative state, ask yourself what it feels like when you get in touch with your inner self. How does life look when seen from its perspective? How does it feel to be connected to that part of you which is, in turn, consciously connected to the entire universe? How does it feel to live beyond the confines of space and time?
 
Words like freedom, expansion, joy and harmony spring to life while you are in the presence of your true, spiritual self.
 
Your inner self is eternal. It can never cease to exist, any more than Infinite Being can cease to exist. This eternal part of you has wisdom and love beyond the confines of any single incarnation. Feel the security of knowing this eternal part of yourself. While you are in the conscious presence of your inner self, see how meaningful the affirmation from the Infinite Being meditation becomes:
 
"I am Infinite Being."

Love and Light to the World ~ Owen K Waters

 

Love and Light to the World. 

by Owen K Waters

January 20, 2019

We live in times of crisis, chaos, and opportunity for growth.
Looked at a different way, you could say we live in interesting times. In fact, the rate of change of many things in the world today has sped up to an almost bewildering degree.
Even the long-established tide of events leading to a carefully controlled new world order has come to a shuddering halt, wondering which way to turn next. There will eventually be a one-world order, but it will be a cooperative utopia based upon freedom of creativity, beauty and inspiration, not a thought-controlled dystopia like in George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four.”

Amid the push and tug of contemporary conflicts, our future is being formed in a way that is functionally more democratic than any political system ever could be. It is being formed in a place in which we all share, yet most people are unaware even of its existence. That place is called the mind belt.
The mind belt is the mental atmosphere of human thought and feeling that surrounds the planet. Our subconscious minds are immersed in it; our superconscious minds are fully aware of it, yet our conscious minds rarely even glimpse its existence. Even so, our minds share in its atmosphere and we feed it with our own thoughts and feelings just like everyone else.

Let’s stop and think for a moment. Is it better to feed the global mind atmosphere with thoughts of anger, fear and desperation, or is it better to offer something more inspirational as our donation to the world’s mind belt?
The question hardly needs answering. As lightworkers we know how to raise our consciousness. While others spend their energy in anger and hate or in scheming to gain more power at the expense of others, we know that the future lies in the next step up the ladder of awareness, which is heart-centered consciousness.
The question is, how do you avoid being pulled down into the mire of human conflict when you want to create a state of harmony for yourself and others?
I’m so glad you asked… 🙂
Here is a technique you can use to create an enlightened space of consciousness for yourself and heal the world at the same time. It is called the Love and Light Technique.
The Love and Light Technique
Several times a day – whenever the need arises – take a pause to refresh your state of consciousness. Any time you get the chance to enter a quiet space within for a few moments without distraction, you can begin by focusing on your breath.
Imagine, with each in-breath, the air you breathe in is filled with brilliant, energy-charged light. Breathe this light energy into the heart area in the center of your chest.
Then, on each out-breath, mentally focus on the words,
“Love and light to the world.”
Breathe in light, then let it out into the world, conditioned with the intention of love and light. Repeat at least twice more… and many more times when you can.
Do your part to fill the world with love and light. It changes your own state of consciousness and it helps heal the world in these desperate times of crisis.
With crisis comes opportunity. The opportunity to become who you really are, to manifest your soul’s true mission in life.
This is what we lightworkers are here to do. To change the world. The Love and Light Technique empowers your ability to help humanity, to usher in theNew Reality of love, light, and freedom of the spirit.

The Nature of the Dreamstate ~ Owen K Waters

 

The Nature of the Dreamstate. 

by Owen K Waters

January, 6, 2019

Spiritual Dynamics Newsletter

Upon going to sleep at night, your two etheric bodies rise up together and hover a few feet above your physical body.
What? TWO etheric bodies?
Yes. No doubt, you are familiar with the concept of an astral or spirit body which leaves your physical body while it sleeps at night. But there is also another, more dense etheric body, one which is more closely aligned with the frequency of the physical body.
The following is an excerpt from the material in our upcoming Spiritual Metaphysics course, which will enable you to master the key laws and principles behind all things in the universe.
The etheric body
This is the energy body that powers the physical body’s needs for universal life energy, which is also known as etheric energy, prana or chi. When science masters this primary form of energy, this will lead to technological innovations that will dwarf everything that electrical science and electronics have ever achieved.

The etheric body acts as a battery for life energy. Whenever the constant needs of your physical body deplete its energy reserves, you feel the need for sleep. During sleep, the etheric body floats in the air above the physical body, recharging itself from the etheric life energy which fills all space.
This is energy that the Sun deposits into the atmosphere during the daylight hours. When your etheric body’s recharge has been completed some hours later, you will no longer feel the need for more sleep. Conversely, whenever your etheric body reserve of etheric life energy is highly depleted, you feel a strong need for sleep so that recharging can take place.
Notice how Seasonal Affective Disorder occurs during cloud-covered winter seasons and produces lower mental, emotional, and physical energy in a person. This is because the daytime influx of etheric energy from our primary source of light the Sun collects mainly above the cloud barrier, providing less ambient energy at ground level. The shortfall can be made up by the use of bright, full-spectrum lighting in the daytime or evening. This is because light consists of, not just electric and magnetic energy, but also life-giving etheric energy.

Astral adventures
Once your etheric and spirit bodies have left their physical shell, your spirit body then rolls out of sync with your etheric body, leaving your etheric body parked above your physical body. With your awareness now focused in your spirit body, you can travel around in the 3D physical world or, more likely, be attracted up into the light of the spirit body’s natural home environment in the 4D spirit (or ‘astral’) realms.

Upon waking, if you feel a close connection to a beloved friend who has passed on into the 4D afterlife, that is a typical sign that you were in contact with them during the deeper out-of-body sleep states.
Recall of your travels in the deeper sleep states isn’t so easy, but what might be termed the dreamstate is much closer to physical consciousness and therefore easier to recall.
The dreamstate
The dreamstate occurs in the lighter levels of sleep, especially before waking in the morning, when your spirit body has returned from its travels and is parked back in sync with your etheric body.
The dreamstate is like an echo chamber in which the subconscious mind can play. In the dreamstate, all the stresses of the day work themselves out using forms of symbolism for the exercise. Hence, the sometimes wacky, illogical nature of recalled dreams. The subconscious mind is rather like the mind of a very young child. It throws up dramas with very little intellectual rationality, just to release stress and blow off steam.

The deeper levels of sleep, in which the spirit body is free to roam, are higher consciousness levels of operation. In these states, you are also in deeper contact with your soul mind and can see the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in your life.
You then plan for these upcoming events in order to stay aligned with the life objectives that you planned before you were born into this life. With each new physical incarnation, amnesia about your plans comes with the package just to make the adventure more interesting, but your soul stays in constant awareness of your purpose and your progress throughout your life.
With our upcoming course on Spiritual Metaphysics, you can acquire the answers to the mysteries of life. Join us now and establish yourself as a Leading Light in the emerging Age of Spiritual Enlightenment.
