A Manifesto for an Awakening World

"To build a new world, change the way you see the one you're in, and upon those new perspectives lay a foundation of principles and practices to support the one you crave." - John


We hold these truths to be self-evident, by which all who choose may live:

  1. We are joined by common intention to build lives inspired by the voice that speaks within, and make whatever contribution it calls us to add to our world.
  2. We seek to know ourselves a little better in every moment.
  3. We honor ourselves, each other, and the source of life within all.
  4. We allow all things to be as they are created, and look for the value in every person, situation, perspective, and belief.
  5. We accept and preserve the right of every soul to go its own way while we go ours.
  6. We speak our truth despite all obstacles with patience, persistence, and loving kindness, without filter, restriction, or imposition on others.
  7. We act for others’ expansion and not at their expense.
  8. We listen compassionately to those who struggle, suffer, or are in pain, and act on our inner urges to help.
  9. We look for the divinity within all despite the egoic filters and distortions that keep us apart.
  10. We accept responsibility for our choices and perceptions, and how they shape our lives.
  11. We encourage each other to dream and create the visions of our souls, and to live in accord with our highest aspirations.
  12. We keep no secrets about the inner ways, and hold their truths open to all.

Upon these principles we can build a better world. And so it is.
