Prophets Conference

JEAN HOUSTON, Ph.D. takes The Prophets Conference ~ Palm Springs into its stated theme/objective to „seek avenues for exploration of inner and outer space, and then realize our new being.‰  Dr. Houston is one of >the most dramatic and adventurous social thinkers and doers of our time.  She is an internationally renowned scholar, philosopher, and teacher.  What she talks about is „the changing of the guard on every level, in which every Œgiven‚ is quite literally up for >grabs.‰

The following, written by Dr. Houston regarding our partnering Creation, was submitted to us as preview to her presentation at The Prophets Conference.
_________________________________

This is the time and place where we partner Creation in the recreation of ourselves, in the restoration of the biosphere, and in the assuming of a new kind of culture, what we might term a culture of kindness, in which we live daily life reconnected and recharged by the Source so as to become liberated in our inventiveness and engaged in the world and our tasks. We come into what may be termed flow consciousness. Mystics have always written about this state. But recently, scientists have used similar language to describe the way the universe works.

The universe as we presently know it is expanding rapidly. It consists of at least 50 billion galaxies, each of which has in the neighborhood of 100 to 400 billion stars and the Universe only knows how many planets with intelligent life on them. Space is not empty. In fact even a complete vacuum contains tremendous amounts of background energy. The majority of the cosmos is dark matter; that is, for each particle in the tangible universe, there may be something like a trillion shadow particles in universes in other dimensions. You and I may be replicated, with variations of course, in an infinite number of parallel universes. Further, theorists tell us that the cosmos is an integrated system that is deeply and totally unified in some mysterious way. Things that seem separate from each other are really connected through influences that transcend the limitations of ordinary time and space. Immense levels of energy flow through the universe constantly and, what is more, continuously regenerate it. You are new at every second. Or as physicist Brian Swimme puts it, "The universe emerges out of an all-nourishing abyss not only 15 billion years ago but in every moment." Thus, everything in the universe is a flowing movement that arises with everything else, moment by moment, in a process of continuous regeneration. And what‚s more, the cosmos itself may be a hologram, such that each part of the flow as it continually recreates itself contains in miniature the whole blooming picture. If the cosmos is a hologram and I tend to think that it is any change anywhere results in a change everywhere. All is within all, the totality present within each part, and each part fully connected to the whole. And if each part of the universe contains the immensity of everything, perhaps our universe is itself enfolded in a Meta-Universe, beyond our local laws of form, which connects us instantaneously to a vast cosmic system in which higher creative laws predominate. When our cosmos blossomed into existence from an infinitely small pinpoint some fifteen billion years ago, it emerged out of an infinitely deep domain of Being‚s vast intelligence, creativity, and energy. Perhaps this domain is the Meta-Universe, the ultimate, generative ground of our being. It
provides the nutrients and light of the Life Force that continuously sustains our cosmos as a unified organism. So self-reflective and co-conscious is our universe in all of its parts that at a certain level of evolution, its organisms can achieve awareness of the Meta-Universe, even tap into its fecundity, as well as adding their productions to the Mind of the Whole.

Allow yourself to marvel at the immensity of this picture for a moment, and then ask yourself:
*Where does my life fit in to the consciousness of a universal reality?
*What can I do to play my part?
As we become conscious of our participation in an immensity of consciousness, we begin to realize that each human body-mind is constructed so as to have the capacity to receive from the pulses of the Universe the knowledge and the power to make the changes that can save the world.
