How did I get here? I ask myself as I, a Canadian, prepare to be interviewed by California’s feminist-activist Elaine Holtz? It's Monday, May 23, 2:20 p.m. EST.
“What message will I have for women awaiting their U.S. Supreme Court to overturn laws that will lead to an expected 50% of the states banning abortion?” Elaine has assured me she's not asking me this question because I’m an expert in this or any other field.
What have I got to say? I ask myself this question realizing I’m presenting on the weekly Co-Creators Convergence Zoom Call Thursday, June 23, 2022, 8-9:30 pm EST. It’s certainly not because I’ve won any creativity awards.
"What story can I offer the dynamic, open-hearted Barbara Marx Hubbard legacy group dedicated to giving our unique gift to the shift in Humanity?" The question comes from founders Noel Marshall and Bob Warner. www.CoCreatorsConvergence.com
In a phrase, my answer to all the big questions of life, these days, is Evolutionary Spirituality – that view of Universe as conscious, synergistic and emergent.
When my partner and I said, “yes!” to the evolutionary forces unleased by the environmental crisis, we found ourselves not only cooperating but co-creating with something larger than the personal, social, religious, or political.
Now life, lived in a context of the 13.8 billion-years-long story, is part of a reality ever dancing toward greater consciousness, complexity, and interdependence. As a result, my answers to the big questions lies in living everyday with an evolutionary spirituality.
Once upon a time I actually said, ”the last thing the world needs is another book.” In fact, one employer would have said the chances of me being able to write a book were highly improbable. And yet these interviews are opportunities to tell this author's story of writing Evolutionary Dancer, Out, In, and on the Fringe of the Church.
But this sacred dance called evolution has led me out of what was once too narrow a life, beyond the impossible, and into the realm of the probable. It has brought me to this truth –
God (AKA creative energy) is not remote from us. It is at the point of my pen, my (pick) shovel, my paint brush, my (sewing) needle - and my heart and thoughts. Teilhard de Chardin
