In last Sunday’s service, I read one of my short stories, kind of a metaphysical science fiction dealing with the evolution of consciousness and our part in it.
The story sparked a very lively discussion, whether we as a species and planet are moving to a higher state, and we agreed we are. We also touched on the evolution from primates to homo sapiens and what made that change into human consciousness – the “missing link.” In much the same way, what will be the missing link from where we are now to a species with an evolved consciousness?
I’ve been reading some books by a CSL minister, Mark Gilbert: Our Evolutionary Journey. and Becoming a Spiritual Change Agent. In that book he asks:
So you want to change the world? Do you look at the world as it currently exists and recognize that there is a higher possibility to be created? Do you feel an internal calling to use your talents and passions to move us towards a positive future?
I bought these for my kindle, but you can read them on your computer. When you find them on Amazon, down in the right-hand corner there is a link to get a free kindle app to read it on computers, tablets, and smart phones. Mark has a lot more information on the subject on his website: consciousbridge.com
I want to continue to explore these ideas on ways we can make a difference in the world by being spiritual change agents. We are part of the great change – we are the missing link – we are the change we wish to see in the world.
