Grant Dive, Transition Specialist for Global Unity and Cooperation, Author and Humanitarian Expert, shares some key insights into the 'psychology of humanity' and the need for a unified approach to positive global change.
What will it take to awaken and transform individuals and society at large during this time of uncertainty, potential peril, and rapid change? Ordinary citizens and leaders in every field of endeavor are contemplating this question, sharing their insights, and playing their part in building a more peaceful, compassionate world.
As a student of conscious evolution and proponent of co-creative practices, I believe that the following are some of the principles that are foundational for building this new world and awakening humanity to its full potential:Read more
Enlightenment, whatever it is, must manifest its harvest on Earth, as it does in Heaven. The simple realizations of an expanded and altered consciousness cannot be focused on another dimension alone. After all, if the Source was so disinterested in this fourth dimensional plane, why did It bother to manifest it, create it, make it so painfully beautiful, elegant and integrated?
Evolution - the creative process itself – is an essential aspect of Source. It is not merely change, static transformation without direction. These are bold statements, no doubt, mystically substantiated, recently extracted as a truth by members of the evolutionary intelligentsia.
But if evolution is that intrinsic an aspect of creation, then even the most basic particles of creation-quarks, leptons, the Higgs boson, etc - all these should be evolving as well. The most fundamental units of creation should be evolving towards what and from where? Further, shouldn’t each dimension, however we name it, have its own evolutionary directive, angels into archangels, and so on?
Is Source Itself evolving? Not in terms of Its Manifestation (the endless universes of Creation) but It Itself? Is that a good question? Can one separate Source from Its Creation? Can I separate the evolution of my liver from my evolution?
Gifted with curiosity, the ability to ask fundamental questions, some wisdom traditions instruct us to discover that Place where there are no questions.
Is that the be-all and the end-all? After all, the design of Man is not his own, curiosity is as much an aspect of Source as Love must be, and perhaps, just perhaps, it is that curiosity with its endless dissatisfaction that is the evolutionary driver itself.
Not to worry, I have many more dumb questions!

Statistician Nic Marks asks why we measure a nation's success by its productivity -- instead of by the happiness and well-being of its people. He introduces the Happy Planet Index, which tracks national well-being against resource use (because a happy life doesn't have to cost the earth). Which countries rank highest in the HPI? You might be surprised.
