Barbara Marx Hubbard
Conscious evolution as a worldview began to emerge in the latter half of the twentieth century because of scientific, social, and technological abilities that have given us the power to affect the evolution of life on Earth. Conscious evolution is a metadiscipline; the purpose of this metadiscipline is to learn how to be responsible for the ethical guidance of our evolution. It is a quest to understand the processes of developmental change, to identify inherent values for the purpose of learning how to cooperate with these processes toward chosen and positive futures, both near term and long range.
Deep in the hidden process of our metamorphosis we can
see a natural design — an evolutionary pattern to guide us
toward the next stage of transformation. We intuit the presence
of the still-invisible societal butterfly, yet how do we become it?
What we are seeking is a worldview that will call forth our creative
action and direct our immense powers toward life-oriented
and evolutionary purposes. That guiding worldview is, I believe,
conscious evolution. It holds that through our unprecedented
scientific, technological, social, and spiritual capacities we can
evolve consciously and cocreatively with nature and the deeper
patterns of creation (traditionally called God), thus enabling us
to manifest a future commensurate with our unlimited species and
The spiritual aspect of conscious evolution gives us access to that deeper pattern within us. We become conscious of the evolutionary impulse — the dynamic process of creation — through inner guidance, motivation, intuition, and revelation. It is the feeling within us urging us to be more, to know more, to love more, to reach out and touch, to activate our genius, to find our life purpose. It is Spirit in action, God in evolution, the consciousness force, cosmic intelligence, the supramental genius of the universe,
or whatever name we choose.
Memes are the most powerful force in human society. They guide our actions, build our societies, and organize our world. Just as genes are selected based on their ability to survive, so too memes are selected for their viability.
Conscious evolution teaches us to be meme conscious and create life-affirming memes that foster a positive future.
What life-affirming memes, for a positive future, do you suggest for humanity?
Currently, there is a wide range of opinion as to whether we are declining rapidly and perhaps irreversibly toward irreparable global environmental or economic catastrophe, or whether our crises are leading us toward a positive future. Both scenarios, as well as many variations, are possible. Our purpose is to discover a plausible positive scenario that attracts us to work toward it. For as
we see reality, so we act, and as we act, so we tend to become.
We are the universe in person. Our exquisite eyes originated
in the first glimmer of light sensitivity in early cells. When we
wake with fear in the middle of the night, our hair standing on the
backs of our necks, our nervous systems are remembering the fear
of unprotected animals. When we experience our own desire for
transformation, we are feeling the universe evolving through us.
Agents of Conscious Evolution Immersion Retreat! September 13-17, 2015, Petaluma, CA
I am VERY excited about the upcoming ACE retreat with my co-teacher (and beloved sister) Patricia Ellsberg. We’ve created a new series of recordings about this “Advance” communion of pioneering souls that will take place September 13-18, 2015 at Earthrise Campus at IONS in Petaluma, CA.
Please enjoy this new clip about the opening evening and first full day: Agents of Conscious Immersion Live Retreat
Our intention is to give you a felt sense of the transmissions we’re receiving about this next stage of the evolutionary journey. We feel as if we are transmitting a lived experience of wholeness from the resonant field of divine love.
If you join the 50 other pioneering souls that embark on this unprecedented journey, you’ll be contributing to what I believe is the most important work on the planet: Shifting humanity from the old “memetic” codes that have destroyed millions of human beings and entire species of animals and plants -- and replacing them with the new codes for a peaceful, just and sustainable world.
It takes really activating and living the codes, which this retreat can help make a reality for you.
You’ll have a chance to explore new systems, processes and technologies in a resonant field of love that is the “incubator” for a new future and a new human experience.
You’ll find more details about this extraordinary in-person, evolutionary “experiment”, here: Agents of Conscious Immersion Live Retreat
I hope you enjoy the recording with me and Patricia--“stay tuned” for more!
Please join us for this live retreat!
