America has yet to bring its most important gifts to the table of human consciousness. There is information and vision that has yet to be integrated into daily action, and can be found in the worldview of the Native peoples of the Americas, the Transcendentalists of Concord, Massachusetts and the Founding Vision of this country as articulated in our freedom documents: The Mayflower Compact, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution.
This series presents threads of Universal Truth held in the heart and knowing of all of humanity. It challenges America and Americans to become those great truths as articulated in our documents of freedom and democracy. It has been titled “The American Evolution,” acknowledging the process of evolution from the articulation of truth to the walking of truth in everyday life, and America’s role in this process.
The five parts of the series introduce the following concepts that are currently missing in the prevailing paradigm, an understanding of which will enable humanity to realize its fullest potential as loving beings, living in balance on Earth:
- The conscious, loving, interconnected nature of the Universe
- Respect for and trust in the autonomous, sovereign nature of the individual through recognition of humanity’s intrinsic higher nature
- Humanity aligning with its highest conscience leading to profound balance, freedom, abundance and peace coming on Earth through true democracy
- Discovery of the keys to freedom and peace carried in and communicated through the land known as the Americas.
