As our world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future offers us both great peril and great promise. To proceed wisely, we must recognize that, even with our extraordinary diversity of cultures and life forms, we are but one family amidst myriads of life forms in an awe-inspiring universe. Now more than ever before, we must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on the inter-connectedness of life, universal human rights, economic justice, respect for the higher truths in the great spiritual and philosophical traditions, and the gifts of self-realizing a higher wisdom, what the prophets have called the divine Chokmah or Sophia.
The age of quantum discovery is upon us. Archaeologists are currently finding evidences of earlier strata of civilizations that may have been vastly more interconnected than popular history books have told us. We now know that the southwest Pueblo and Anasazi cultures spoke of their chiefs as Yavhas, and that petroglyphs from Israel and Yemen to Colorado and Australia (the Paramitee writing system) reveal a proto-language system of the divine Yah that is now being confirmed by some of the best minds in the world.
Nevertheless, after thousands of years we have still not come to recognize the greater oneness of humanity. We live in the midst of clashes of civilizations and religious values. It requires our highest efforts and energies to maintain peace in the midst of multi-culturalism. It is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations. We can build a culture of peace.
Humanity stands at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when each of us must choose our individual future. If we are to realize our true destiny, we must live with a conscious sense of universal responsibility, identifying ourselves with the whole of humanity across the globe as well as in our local communities. We are at once citizens of different nations of one world and citizens of a space in which local and planetary worlds are linked. From the Near East to the ends of the earth, we are to transform the diaspora into an “ingathering” of the artifacts and documents of history that speak to us of a higher plan of destiny and oneness. This plan invites all those desiring unity among the scattered brotherhoods and sisterhoods to work publicly and privately as peacemakers, using the Divine Name in an inner preparation for the Kingdom to manifest itself, eventually permitting us to enter into that region Christ called the Father’s House of Many Mansions.
