For me the Middle Way is to live a transpersonal life, a life that is to be compassion- and wisdom-inspired and that serves a function for and as an integral part of the Earth. In such a life bhavana (cultivation) includes an inner mutation and an outer transformation, thereby changing both person and Earth. The inner mutation involves changing the quality of one's will, thoughts, feelings, desires, emotions, values, etc. The outer transformation entails changing the quality of one's behavior and activity in the world, therefore also one's relationships with others. Such a mutation and transformation is to be founded upon, infused with, and impelled by an all-inclusive, universal, Divine Love-Compassion---the essence of the four immeasurable contemplations of Loving-Kindness-Friendliness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, and Equanimity.
One function of the four contemplations is to redirect one's allegiance from the lesser wholes--one's family, people, country etc--to our one greater planetary whole, that Being within which we live and move, and which IS our being. A second function through an ever more inclusive embodiment of Wisdom and Compassion is to contribute to the preparation of the foundation for a future global society. Such a contribution means to establish a new vision, way of life, and meaning for being; one that is based upon the Earth as the foundation--the Earth, in all of its material, biological, mental, and spiritual aspects.
Much easier said than done and saying it is not that easy either!!! Following through with my aspiration I could be described as a very serious, disciplined, highly-focused, and broad-minded person, perhaps the last of the "hermit-monk-philosophers," and a "big picture" visionary with extra helpings of sincerity, honesty, directness, equanimity, sympathy, empathy, and compassion to go along with that!
The call and challenge of a pan-human rebirth, transfiguration, and global society is upon us. May all those who are able to 'hear,' answer that 'vocation!'
I am seeking someone who is interested in living FOR something, hence living a life of transformative Meaning and Purpose; someone who might come to feel a MISSION, a CALLING, to share in the establishment, sustentation, dissemination, and exemplification of a new vision, way of life, and meaning for being. Such a co-working companionship would work towards the inner mutation and outer transformation mentioned above, and manifest and radiate both as single persons and as partners the following qualities: Tranquility, Serenity, Stillness, Equanimity, Autonomy, Centrality, Willingness, Discipline, Responsibility, Attunement, Receptivity, Adaptability, Detachment, The Art of Letting Things Happen, Knowing Where One Belongs, Simplicity, Tolerance, Ease Non-Identification, Comradeship, Personal Integrity, Service, Courage, Non-Possessiveness, Intellectual Honesty, Sensitivity, Discrimination, Equanimity in Love, Non-Competitive Efficiency, Creative Visualization, Self-Reliance, A Sense of Humor, Faith in the Future, Aspiration-Ardency, Adoration-Reverence, Hope-Expectancy, Sincerity, Perseverance, Gratitude-Appreciation, All-Embracing Openness, Empathy, Love-Compassion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Solidarity, Cooperation, Fulfillment, Communion, Self-Forgetfulness, Self-Surrender, Self-Consecration to a Greater Whole, and MORE!
May Wisdom and Compassion bring together the conscious co-producers for the transpersonal way and may we become the foundation necessary to transform life and living into planetary acts of creative power!
Let us one and all assume our responsibility of all-inclusive growth and transformation, and move forward in consciousness and participation, in service to the emerging World Community--the consummation of humanity as a whole--working to call forth creative tomorrows and a greater Life for the Earth, that Being within which we live, move, and which IS our being!
