With the horrible historical examples of how a small group of people who claim to be acting on behalf of the "people" as a whole created hell-on-earth for those actual people, who then had no voice and were slaughtered like inconvenient obstacles to a higher vision--foam rising up from individuals free to pursue their own interests, and a "unitas multiplex" allowed to evolve according to the interests, allegiances, and affinities expressed in connections that arise naturally--Yes, what a wonderful concept.

My own current thinking about self and world perhaps inhabits a neighboring realm of inquiry: is this world a halfway house designed to educate the individual being and provide an opportunity to work through old karmic stuff in order that our being can take flight into realms that are inherently higher and more open; or is this world important in its own right, the living home of our living embodiment?  If the latter perspective is more true and more pertinent to our current lives, then is Earth a home realm that provides the vital foundation for any idea we are able to form of it?  And in that case, can this home be revived when enough of us sense our individual indebtedness to planet Earth.  Kafka wrote: "When Adam and Eve were cast out of Paradise their fate was changed.  That the fate of Paradise was also changed is not written."

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
