As a tribute to Adiyogi, the Prime Minister will light the sacred fire to commence the Maha Yoga Yagna across the world.

Around one million people will take an oath to teach a simple form of yoga to at least 100 people each in the coming year, and touch at least 100 million people before the next Mahashivaratri.

The Ministry of Tourism, Government of India has included the consecration of this glorious face in its official Incredible India campaign as a destination.

The unveiling of Adiyogi is part of the largest Mahashivaratri celebrations in the country which will be telecast live, simultaneously in seven languages to over five crore people through over 23 satellite television channels and several online platforms.

At 11o latitude in India, because of the tilt and precision in the spin axis of the earth, the centrifugal force is nearly vertical, and Isha Yoga Center by virtue of being on this latitude becomes an ideal place to be on the night of Mahashivaratri.

The festivities of Mahashivaratri begin at 6 p.m. and conclude at 6 a.m., the next morning. The nightlong celebrations include the powerful midnight meditation and discourse by Sadhguru, cultural performances by Kailash Kher, Rajasthan Roots with Kutle Khan, Sounds of Isha (Ishas home grown, anomalous group of musicians) and dance troop Nritarutya. Maha Annadanam or the offering of food will be made for all.

Describing the significance of Adiyogi, Sadhguru said, It is essential that the next generations of people on this planet are seekers, not believers. As philosophies, ideology, belief systems that dont stand the test of logic and the scientific verification will naturally collapse in coming decades, you will see the longing for liberation will rise. When that longing rises, Adiyogi and the science of Yoga will become very important.

In Tamil Nadu, Amavasya is considered the most important day in the month. We will leave the first offering to Adiyogi to the local people as a way of honoring the common people of the land, as an expression of their love and devotion. -Sadhguru

Home Global Communication Hub

The Evolutionary Spiral and Wheel of Co-creation graphic tells the story of our evolution from Universal Intelligence – the field of infinite possibilities; from the origin of the Universe through the formation of Energy, Matter, Earth, Life, Animal Life, Human Life and now us going around our turn on the Spiral.

The Core of the Spiral represents Universal Intelligence,the Impulse of Evolution within us, that sense of Spiritarising in each of our hearts as our own impulse to create.

We feel resonance with the global communion of pioneering souls as we discover the new Planetary DNA, divining the design of evolution.

The Wheel of Cocreation describes our current turn on the Spiral. We identify Golden Innovations that work, joining with Global Cocreators and each other in every field and function that are symbolized by the various sectors of the Wheel.

The same mysterious process that co-ordinates atom with atom and cell with cell is co-ordinating us within the Wheel. The Wheel of Cocreation is not static – each of us is turning the Wheel by everything we do.

We celebrate the planetary birthing experience as we come together as one planetary body embracing the next epoch of human evolution as a Universal Humanity.

The Wheel of Cocreation is a potent representation of the whole-system shift. If you look carefully into the Wheel you will see twelve societal sectors arranged in a wheel-like structure according to the so-called 12 around 1 model; we believe these twelve areas comprise the full list of the basic functions of any community. The 12 around 1 principle is considered to be a model of stability in nature, and is the basis of the concept of tensegrity pioneered by Buckminster Fuller. Thus, the sectors or functions represented by the Wheel provide us with a reliable and integrative model for our collective transformationtwelve divisions of the positive fluctuations needed to create a leap to social synergy. It is our responsibility now to activate the Wheel of Cocreationour turn on the Spiral.

When the Wheel of Co-creation is fully activated, we will see the new world that is already arising in our midst. It will offer us a coherent picture of humanity as well as our whole planetary system as a living organism. It will tell us where the problems are, who is working to solve them, and where we can find the needed innovations all organic elements of a living, holistic system of relationships. It will provide for us what I call the new news of who we are becoming in such a way as to continually activate our potential to participate.

Grey Magick and Soapbox Preachers – Patheos (blog)

Posted: February 14, 2017 at 11:59 pm

Yesterday I had dental work. I also had a sinus infection. I was excused from returning to my office. This freed me up to take a trip downtown to file my modified paperwork from last weeks adventures. Its an odd moment to realize that one is excited to be sick enough to go to court. I was so ill that I actually forgot where the courthouse was, and wandered around until I got my bearings.

In front of the courthouse is a statue of Justice, and I admit that this is not my favorite representation. She is blindfolded, but holds no scales. Her empty arms are in different positions, which I infer is the artists rendition of the concept of balance. My impression is quite the opposite. She seems lost, blind, and imbalanced. Other interpretations I have viewed depict a woman who is serene and exudes confidence. This woman is confused and unsure. I prefer the traditional model, but perhaps this new idea is more aligned with the actual reality of the system she represents.

I got to thinking about the idea of Grey Magick, at least as it is applied by most of the practitioners that I know. Esoteric discourse is rooted in the politics of the time period in which it occurs, it becomes an interesting gauge for historical events and cultural shift. Classically, there has always been a stark dividing line between White and Black Magick in Western thought. I heard Lon Milo DuQuette describe it best ..in one you kiss Gods ass, and in the other, you kiss the Devils. Another way to look at this dichotomy is practice that aligns one with external, or astral entities to adjust internal consciousness and create results. On the other end of the arc is practice that pursues similar goals through the use of ones own body, and alignment with terrestrial, or earthbound entities to effect something or someone outside of the self. One is used to bless, and one is used to curse. These categories have become less distinct over time.

Contemporary practitioners, whether they self-identify as magicians, Witches, Pagans, or other, typically use a variety of these techniques. Donald Michael Kraig describes this approach in Modern Magick as Grey Magick, or the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will for the purpose of causing either physical or non-physical good to yourself and others, and is done either consciously or unconsciously. (MM, 11.) Grey Magick can quickly turn Black, as sometimes unintended consequences arise from the best ideas. Whenever we use our energies to change the world outside of ourselves, we take this risk. The results can be unpredictable. I thought of these things when I looked at this statue in front of the courthouse, my local equivalent of a Grey Temple. Looking at her I could only think that so much unconscious harm is doled out in pursuit of blessings.

To the side of the building but within range of the front door was a man with a Bible and a microphone. He had a step ladder instead of a soapbox, but the message was the same. Seems like an active season for the Jesus People, they are out and about in droves. Sports events, elementary schools, now court. He was not as strident as most, but he mentioned repentance and the promise of salvation if I just surrender to Gods love. It is tiresome to hear this everywhere these past few months, and I think I have become anesthetized to it on some level. I suppose to some this message would be appealing. He seems related to his bronze companion on the front podium. Trust in a higher power, trust the message, let wiser heads decide. Surrender, it is so much easier, and everything will work out in the end. We cannot see the pattern, but just have faith in the system. Let us guide you.

This has never worked for me. In the words of Elle King, Its a mean world that Ive known. Never got no good, doing what Im told. In fact, my rejection of religious dogma and exposure to the realities of the judicial system have led me to embrace a magickal worldview from an early age. I prefer to live from a philosophy of self-determination. I am responsible for my salvation or damnation, and am aware that all actions will have unforeseen effects. I do not need an external source of validation to assure me that everything will be fine. (Though it is gratifying to hear every now and again.) Conversely, I am not often unnerved at bad news or unexpected information. I have no expectation of safety, good news, or ordered existence. My early experience has trained this into me. While this was a source of pity in my youth, I find that it has served me well in recent circumstances.

To be accurate, I can take direction and frequently do. I have Gods, Ancestors, Fae, and other Allies whom I consult for perspective and guidance. The difference is that I can choose to obey, or not. Sometimes the recommendations are tough but necessary. Sometimes the advice conflicts with what I am aiming to accomplish. It is always up to my sole discretion. This is challenging, as there are many moments of self-doubt. However, I think this process is crucial to our survival as a species, if my own personal experience is any indication. We must question everything, and stop expecting to be saved. When we realize these things, conscious evolution occurs. It is not easy, but it is authentic.

Stay Inspired: Conscious Evolution with Barbara Marx …

Posted: November 21, 2016 at 11:04 am

For Barbara Marx Hubbard, the meaning of I am comes from the source of creation, and it is an impulse that for billions of years has been creating quarks, electron, protons, animals, and now humans. I am the universe in person, she adds, so the I am principle in every one of us is actually our unique experience of the creative impulse of the universe. In this far-seeing and hopeful interview with Lisa Garr, originally webcast on March 9, 2016, Barbara explains the importance of people who are already loving coming together to create a field of attraction and a vision of the future to overcome the negativity of old ways to generate a transformative evolutionary consciousness.

Barbara Marx Hubbard is a visionary and a social innovator. She thinks from an evolutionary perspective and believes that global change happens when we work collectively and selflessly for the greater good, and many would agree she is the global ambassador for conscious change. Deepak Chopra has called her the voice for conscious evolution. A prolific author and educator, she has written seven books on social and planetary evolution and she has produced, hosted and contributed to countless documentaries seen by millions of people around the world.

Conscious evolution – Wikipedia

Posted: October 17, 2016 at 1:22 am

Conscious evolution refers to the claim that humanity has acquired the ability to choose what the species Homo sapiens becomes in the future, based on recent advancements in science, medicine, technology, psychology, sociology, and spirituality. Conscious evolution assumes that human beings may be positioned at the crest of the ongoing evolution of the universe.

It has loose connections to integral theory, Spiral Dynamics, and noosphere thought. It is also sometimes connected to the theory of the global brain or collective consciousness.

Writers and thinkers on conscious evolution include Ervin Laszlo, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Andrew Cohen. Tobias Tripler made some important contributions in his widely appraised treatise “Common Sense and other Things Mankind has not yet achieved”, Fnord, 1991.

Conscious evolution suggests that humanity can choose advancement through co-operation and co-creation or self-destruction through separateness and competition.

In April 2014, Cardinal Gerhard Mller, prefect of the Catholic Church’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, issued a rebuke to the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, which represents the majority of U.S. nuns, for its promulgation of conscious evolution.

In the rebuke, he wrote: “The fundamental theses of conscious evolution are opposed to Christian Revelation and, when taken unreflectively, lead almost necessarily to fundamental errors regarding the omnipotence of God, the Incarnation of Christ, the reality of Original Sin, the necessity of salvation and the definitive nature of the salvific action of Christ in the Paschal Mystery.”[1]

Soon after Mller’s rebuke, the National Catholic Reporter issued a response by Barbara Marx Hubbard, whom Mller had mentioned in his remarks, in which she attempted to explain how the concept of conscious evolution is not, in fact, incompatible with Catholicism.[2]
