Ar. Ranjeet Mukherjee, Partner, Vrindavan speaks on how the spiritual realm is all encompassing and inclusive in order to strive and aspire to greater heights of creative harmony.
Spirit is in the process of unfolding through matter, by its involved complexity. This process has been active since the beginning if there were any such conceivable thing. Ours may not even necessarily be the ‘only’ manifest of Divine joy, for it is believed that there have been many cycles of creation and will be many more. Moreover, should our linear conceptions of temporal and spatial evolution be cast aside, we may notice that every possible reality could be co-occurring, for history itself would be but a flicker when measured up against an Infinite and Eternal canvas of creativity.
Paradoxically we occupy a realm where, to the best of our analytical capacities, it is found that regardless of how finely we divide space or take matter apart, there seems to be no end in sight. Every point of time and space, now shown through entanglement to be fundamentally connected, separate only to deluded, defined, restrained and narrow perception.
Every aspect of the Action is perfect, a fact denied only by the Ego, which strays through the fantasy of being the Driver, separate from the Whole. This current Zeitgeist can best be compared to a birthing process. Chaos, pain, tearing, bleeding, crying and a distinct sense of emergency, though all endured in the light of bringing forth an entirely new force. We are metaphorically caught in this situation at a planetary or galactic scale or perhaps something even more profound.
All this momentum is revealed vividly to those ‘tuned in’; through awakened awareness, understandings are enlarged to the extent of being able to zoom out effortlessly and perceive transformation. Unfortunately, the vast majority of our brothers and sisters remain trapped by institutions and systems that emerge from an ever-enlarging Ego-centric religious and scientific agenda that sculpts the landscape of contemporary global culture. Both religious and scientific institutions originate from the same source, a sense of duality and separate domains; the original sin, our first disconnect with humanity and turn away from Unity.
Characterised by defined ideologies and exclusive aesthetic identities, these forces are fundamentally intertwined, intricate and powerful. Within the last century or so, we witness an ultimate merger of their agendas; with the unfurling of a military police state, mainstream media-driven, pharmaceutical, legal, bureaucratic, corporate and political ‘network’, of dubious allegiances to divergent trans humanist interests and eugenic philosophies, all at constant siege with each other.
Their interests are worked into the system by lobbyists and public relations consultants to allow for ambiguous abstract entities and conglomerates; to take control of most activity that defines the collective human endeavour. Relentless propaganda permeates every realm of ‘development’, making our modern way of life ‘consumption driven’, deceptive, reckless, destructive and remorseless. This model upon which our global system has been confirmed cannot be considered healthy from any reasonable or responsible perspective.
It seems like the primary mantra of the varied authoritarian regulatory mechanisms that channel human potential; is to ‘Take what we can, while we can and leave’. Almost as if the collective consciousness of popular culture had been hijacked by some locust overmind, which somehow drives us to willfully annihilate our habitat while simultaneously and persistently (through varied gestures) urging us to look to the stars and locate the next habitable target, to colonise and eventually consume entirely. To be aligned with the unfolding of Spirit differs ‘in essence’ from humanity’s mutant step-siblings, the religious and scientific establishments and their countless demon offspring but is never ‘apart’.
Tracing back the origins of organisations, agendas and cultures, we are enabled by and are enabling, daily, at multiple synchronised levels, through ‘business as usual; it may be revealed that we are in some way or another, often integrally part of this vicious machinery, in some cases even, active perpetrators of Ego sponsored crimes, against ourselves. We are discovered as unconscious agents towards a homogenised, standardised, global operating protocol. Even academia, the identified institution whose primary program should have ideally been boundary dissolution, often peddles the same ideological product and is funded by (so, therefore, at some level, controlled by the Ego agenda.
Tools to achieve Convergence are already at our disposal, for we are literally ‘growing’ the microbiological tissue of the greater resultant organism our species is weaving into. Contextual, environmental and ecological sensitivity is a default setting, or precondition, necessary for composed and consistent spiritually guided praxis. Attaining the stage where Work becomes meditation cannot stem from some new theory, manifesto, referable best practice, guideline, movement or instruction. With critical mass and momentum in this direction, what must be done will be collectively understood, and Grace will reveal our true Vocation.
