Transition-Prayer for Collective Sense-Making
At AER, we are engaged in an inquiry on how to adapt, create resiliency and become more attuned to the current cultural context of the anthropocene (late-stage modernity/capitalism/kali-yuga).
To be a contributing force for cultural evolution, we need to embody new and ancient ways of being. This requires great acts of courage as we shed our old belief systems, programming and stories.
We recognize that the evolutionary force that puts the stars in motion is moving through us and is a dynamic, self-organizing process whose grace and guidance we can trust.
Our vision is a future in which everyone knows that we are part of an intelligent, living earth.
As a living laboratory, we are holding questions of how to decolonize our minds from the dominant culture of capitalism, patriarchy, racialized hierarchies, scarcity logic and oppressive systems of control.
How do we become stewards in service of all life, while walking the Buddha’s Noble-8 Fold-path?
Our prayer is to create an imprint of lived possibility in solidarity with all life, in dialogue with the living planet, and in service to the collective transition.
I trust & surrender to the guidance of the Dharma, Bio-Intelligence & Emergence. I want to serve the letting go of old forms & emergence of the new until enlightenment.
