Exciting news for us all – the Global Coherence Initiative

I received this from a Unity minister friend. Now I know why I have a magazine and a blog.  This is what I live for, to pass on news like this and bring minds together for purposes like this.  There are two links for you at the end.  Andrea

Dear Spiritual Awakening Student –    In early February, we, along with other area ministers, attended a reception and presentation at Innisbrook Resort and Country Club at which the featured speaker was Deepak Chopra.  At that event, at Deepak’s request, 1,000 people, including us, stood and took the pledge to support Deepak in something called – The Global Coherence Initiative, in concert with a group of modern day New Thought leaders working under the name of The Evolutionary Leaders Counsel.

Basically, we pledged that night to focus on peace, prevailing in all of the conflicted areas of the world – and to support that peaceful outcome by creating a consistent climate of peace in our own hearts and minds. We found it very easy, especially boosted by the synergistic energy of a group of like-minded people, to make that pledge.  Since then, we have found (no surprise) that maintaining peace in our minds and hearts at all times has its challenges – but – we’ve been working on it.

Below is the message we just received from the Evolutionary Leaders Counsel:

The Obama Administration has asked the “Evolutionary Leaders” to communicate with them about what is transpiring on the planet, and how we can change the course of the unprecedented events that are challenging this planet. This is a window of opportunity that must be taken! A deadline was given for this information to be conveyed to the Obama Administration.

The Evolutionary Leaders like Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, Michael Beckwith and many, many others, gathered together to write up the information to present to the Obama Administration. They are also asking us to sign a petition to show the Administration how many people favor that these changes.  They need 10,000 signatures. We need your help to reach that number and beyond!

The Evolutionary Leaders: Michael Beckwith, Joan Borysenko, Gregg Braden, Rinaldo Brutoco, Thomas Callanan, Deepak Chopra, Mallika Chopra, Dale Colton, Gordon Dveirin, Duane Elgin , Leslie Elkus, Barbara Fields, Debbie Ford, Ashok Gangadean, Kathleen Gardarian, Tom Gegax, Charles Gibbs, Kathy Hearn, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bruce Lipton, Judy Martin, Rod McGrew, Steve McIntosh, Lynne McTaggart, Deborah Moldow, James O’Dea, Carter Phipps, Wendy Craig-Purcell, Carolyn Rangel, Rustum Roy, Peter Russell, Gerard Senehi, Emily Squires, Brian Swimme, Diane Williams, Marianne Williamson, Tom Zender
Here is what the Evolutionary Leaders are telling the Obama Administration and asking us to support:

The human family is in the midst of the most significant transformation of consciousness since its emergence in Africa over one hundred thousand years ago. Consciousness has been evolving for billions of years from the first cell to us. We are becoming aware that through our own consciousness the universe can know itself. This awareness reveals incredible new potential for our individual and collective humanity.

Simultaneously, we are the first species on this Earth aware that we can destroy ourselves by our own action. This may be the greatest wake-up call to the evolution of consciousness since the origin of Homo sapiens.

We now realize that we are affecting our own evolution by everything we do. This knowledge awakens in us the aspiration to become more conscious through subjective practices including meditation, reflection, prayer, intuition, creativity, and conscious choice making that accelerate our evolution in the direction of unity consciousness and inspire us to deeply align our collective vision.

At this juncture in human history, urgent global crises challenge us to learn to live sustainably, in harmony and gratitude with one another and with the living universe. The changes required of humanity are broad, deep, and far reaching. Only by acting swiftly and creatively can we birth a planetary culture that will bring well-being to every form of life in the Earth community.
The good news is that a compelling new story of our potential as a whole human species is emerging-a story of collaboration, citizen action, dialogue and new understandings propelled by unprecedented levels of democratic freedom, multicultural exchange, and access to communication technologies. It is nothing less than the story of our collective evolution.

We recognize that the inner and outer aspects of life evolve together. A dramatic awakening in consciousness will involve an equally dramatic shift in outward aspects of our lives. In particular, we see the following as vital opportunities for our conscious evolution, both personally and collectively:

Cultivating a Paradigm of Aliveness: We regard the universe as deeply alive and conscious by nature. In a living universe, our sense of subtle connection and participation with life around us is the basis for a compassionate and cooperative approach to living.

Educating for an Evolving Consciousness: Awakening consciousness is the foundation for all the change we seek to see in the world. We can work to elevate our capacity for conscious reflection and creative action in our personal lives as well as our collective lives as communities. We must support research and educational strategies that optimize human capacities and explore the nature of consciousness.

Restoring Ecological Balance: The balance of planetary ecosystems is fundamental to our survival. We must reverse the pollution of our global commons-the water, air and soil that nourish all life. We must encourage the proliferation of clean, renewable energy sources and expend all necessary resources toward mitigating the effects of climate change.

Encouraging Conscious Media: We must find innovative ways to use the new electronic media as the mirror of our positive evolutionary story, investing in their capacity to reach across differences of generation, culture, religion, wealth, and gender to build a working consensus about our collective future.

Engaging in Social and Political Transformation: More sustainable ways of living will require the support of a more conscious democracy and vibrant civil society from which more enlightened leaders will emerge. All individuals should be encouraged to use their gifts to create participatory, responsible and compassionate models of governance.

Working for Integrity in Commerce: Conscious businesses that are aware of the scope, depth, and long-range impacts of their actions are key to achieving sustainability. Business must become an ethical steward of the Earth’s ecology and consciously establish an economic basis for a future of equitably shared abundance.

Promoting Health and Healing: The science of mind-body-spirit health has demonstrated the profound connection between the health of a whole person and the health of the system in which he or she lives. Whole systems healing, respecting both traditional knowledge and modern sciences, must be supported in physical, social, and spiritual domains.

Building Global Community: The new story is about all of us who share this planet. Together, we can create a culture of peace that eliminates the need for armed conflict, respecting and appreciating the glorious diversity of our human family.

Our group has done its best to articulate possibilities for the evolution of consciousness at this crucial moment in time. Please reflect on this document, feel what resonates in your being and calls forth a response on your part. We invite you to discuss it with others, continuing this global conversation by adding to it the wisdom that is uniquely your own.

Together, let us co-create a new narrative of conscious evolution that is a call to individual and collective action, birthing the most significant transformation of consciousness in history. Join in the Call to Conscious Evolution by signing the pledge now.

We (The Revs John and Lauren McLaughlin) have given our pledge to support the work of the Evolutionary Leaders in person to Deepak Chopra and by placing our signatures on the petition available at this link http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/248704259 .

If you feel able to support this initiative as well, we invite you to join us and all the other “torch bearers” for the Shift to a Higher Consciousness that is taking place – world wide – by adding your signature to the petition. As of this writing, your signature will be joined by 18,645 others who support this initiative.  (The goal of the Evolutionary Leaders is a minimum of 100,000 signatures – 10 times those requested by the Administration.)

It is exciting to us to have a chance to influence, in such a wide-ranging way – a positive difference in the future of our own lives, the lives or our children and grandchildren and the vibrant health of our planet.  Because here is what is undeniable about the work behind the Global Coherence Initiative:

Whatever the end result of this petition is, as it wends its way through the highest levels of our government – a very large number of people, all focusing on a the same positive outcome, are already employing the LAW OF MIND ACTION and are co-creating the recommendations of the Evolutionary Leaders at a powerful Spiritual level.  As long as we keep our minds focused on the outcomes we want to see manifest – and not on those that we don’t want – we will all emerge winners.

Thank you for your attention to this special message and always remember, God Loves You and so do we.
The Revs John and Lauren McLaughlin
