Eve and the Cosmic Family Reunion

Barbara Marx-Hubbard has written an amazing inspired myth called “Eve and the Cosmic Family Reunion“. Another way to put it is “what the next episode of the Bible should be?”, from a universal Christian experience. Simply put: Eve, the original sinner, comes back to the father Yahweh and helps him see how much she loves him and how harmful he was to her and humanity when he chased her away with anger and punishment. She helps him see that he has to invite Lucifer, the fallen Angel, come home. So far Lucifer has worked on enslaving humanity into a separated mind, where most humans are mostly seeking power, domination and fame. This is the reason why Eve goes to Hollywood meet Mr. Universal, the powerful boss of a big major production company. So far he has been producing massive worldwide successful movies that are based on violence, sex and power, the signature of the separated creative mind controled by Lucifer. She invites him to make a film that will show that Armageddon is not a fatality. Then Eve provokes the reunion and re-union of the big Cosmic Family. This mythic play is a masterpiece. When reading it with Barbara, I was immediately penetrated by the archetypes flowing in the play. Most important, I could witness that there was an unconscious hidden longing in me for this Cosmic family reunion...

Free currencies: an evening talk with Barbara-Marx Hubbard

This retreat week with Barbara Marx-Hubbard is a blossoming of ideas, visions, insights, states of consciousness. We gave ourselves enough time to cover many topics. This video is a short excerpt of our conversation on free currencies. It is also a wonderful journey shared with Dino Bendiab, who is making the movie. Our collaboration and complicity, his patience and boldness, his wisdom and insights provide quite a container for expression. Immediate expression for Barbara and I, and creative expression through the movie he is going to make out of this journey. It is a blessing for me to see these first footages and excerpts, not just because of the images themselves, but because they come from everyone’s right placement, joy and creativity. This is pure blissipline....

Reconnecting with Barbara Marx-Hubbard

This Oct. 22-26 2009, I am attending the Renaissance 2 great shift gathering in Perpignan, South of France. One of the greatest joy and emotion I experience right at this moment is the physical reconnection with one of the guests, my beloved Barbara Marx-Hubbard. She spoke this morning. As usual I could feel joy and a delicious sense of rightness pour inside me like a nectar at every word she said, be it about her own journey or the inner evolutionary impulse that seats in everyone of us. She also mentioned her past campaign as the first American woman running for US vice-presidency in 1984. Her key idea was — and still is — that the Vice-Presidency can hold some new social mission, open new paths that can become tomorrow’s institutions. Quoting her on peace rooms: “If a war room can track and target every enemy, then a peace room should track every social innovation and connect them together for the greater good.“ Our personal stories, Barbara and I, are of course quite different, hence we come from different generations. But beyond the external shape of these stories, as evolutionary explorers and travelers, we do acknowledge the very same dynamics and journey in our life. It transcends forms, time, generations. Beyond our individual present form and actions, Barbara and I experience something unique for one another. Something we can’t...

How radical is the Vow of Wealth?

Recently, a friend who grew up in South Africa shared his thoughts with me about the Vow of Wealth. He said that he wouldn’t see himself in this journey, as he prefers middle paths that allow to build relationships with all parties rather than those that separate you from everyone. He made implicitly clear that, in his perception, the vow was extremely radical and marginalizing. My friend added that the world also needed people like me, which added to this feeling that this vow seemed extremist to him. Then my interlocutor shared that his hero and source of inspiration was Nelson Mandela. He explained that, rather than taking radical position against the white people ruling on South Africa, Nelson decided to drink tea and learn cricket rules. This opening to the other’s culture would later serve the vision for a united South Africa, where opposed ethnic groups, cultures and social classes would learn how to live together. My interlocutor’s perception of the vow as a form of extremism was the first of a long series to come, I am pretty sure. I welcomed this conversation. It offered an opportunity to check what radical really means, and what latent distinctions were waiting to be unveiled. Bringing Nelson Mandela in our conversation was a gift, as I deeply, profoundly admire and honor this man. Nelson Mandela was radical in the sense...

Radical nomadism

This transition period towards integral economy and free currencies triggers many ideas about how my life will need to be reorganized. One of the radical shift is definitely transportation. I want transportation to be as clean, as flexible, as autonomous, and as fun as possible. There is a word for this: the bike. In my case, as for many others in the future I am sure, bicycle has to be brought to the next stage, that is radical nomadism. The question is: is there a bicycle that we can carry everywhere in our luggage, and is there a luggage that we can carry everywhere with your bike inside? Typical scenario is a 10 km ride to the train station, carrying our luggage behind. At the train station we fold the bike and put it in our luggage. From there we walk, get in the train. When we get off the train, we unpack and unfold the bike, attach our luggage to the back, and freedom is mine! So far the lightest and apparently most convenient bike I have found on the Net is the Strida. This bike weights about 10kg, it seems extremely simple to fold, it’s built with a very robust technology, a more advanced one than what I have seen with other flexible bikes. Its kevlar transmission keeps it clean and simple. Drawbacks are certainly the small wheels...

Thoughts on the fly

We get the profile of the enemy that we make for ourselves. Rebellion is a seed, creation is a fruit. Values are priceless. When a conflict occurs, half way toward its resolution is done once the nature of the problem and the nature of its participants have been separated. The middle way, far from comforting rules, can be met only through a dialog with God. Center is everywhere. Action precedes intention. Atheism is the religion of materialism. Your friend is not necessarily a sage, a sage is necessarily your friend. The future is a work of art. He who sees the foreigner in the other is a foreigner to himself. The problem with values is you need to already possess them in order to desire them. Follow the blissipline. The fool is a fool before God, the sage is a fool before men....
