Love + Work: The Pursuit of a Lifetime

Driven Forward by the Forces of Successive Stages of Consciousness

I'm pursuing the beautiful intersection of where work meets love. As depicted in my flight plan, this involves the convergence of consciousness, communication and commerce. It also involves deliberate focus on expansion of my own consciousness. I view this as fundamental to discovering and releasing my potentials as well as accessing the most effective channels for my creative expression.

This epic journey includes taking a heavenly ride inward to the home of the self, dancing with old and new clay-like identities and exposing the sub-conscious shadows of my psyche to the light of the day.

The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. Nikola Tesla

As Tesla so urgently stated, the convergence between these seemingly disparate worlds can be a transformative foundation to work from. Combining the esoteric worlds of consciousness with more science-driven approaches is not only fascinating, it’s grounding. Therefore, my recent explorations have included working with The Institute of Noetic Sciences and Nine Gates Mystery School. Both of these organizations value the bridge of how we can bring the mysteries of the cosmos into everyday reality for more meaningful living.

And still, my mission is beyond just constructing a meaningful vocation, it’s also rooted in being a productive and healing ripple within our broader co-existing world.

Consider this:

The structure of society does not enforce imitation and conformity. The human fear of self-actualization necessitates structures that enable imitation and conformity. There would be riots demanding such structures if they didn’t exist. No government in history has ever had to deal with the problem of too many of its citizens wanting to live so imaginatively that institutions based on conformity and imitation become unsustainable. If anything, the problem has always been the reverse one: getting enough of the population to act with enough imagination to keep the institutions alive. (Venkatesh Rao)

This perspective is powerful because it begs each human to take responsibility for himself or herself as an individual. It offers credence to how we can take accountability for the creation of our identities, lives and creative expressions, rather than get stuck in fear-based entitlement demands. A country filled with increasing self-accountable and self-actualized people could be a peaceful and loving place to live. Therefore, in light of doing what I can for contributing to a more liberated world, I’m driven to continually discover where my love of myself and of life intersects with purpose-driven work product.

The old temple inscription "Know Thyself" is often repeated today, but perhaps it is not adequate. It should declare "Construct Thyself" as well. Shape your mind, train your thinking power, and direct your emotions more rationally; liberate your behavior from the ancestral burden of reptiles and monkeys—be a man and use your intelligence to orient the reactions of your mind.

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
