THE GREAT TRANSFORMATION
by Gary Zukav
A great transformation is reshaping human consciousness in a fundamental
way. This transformation is the largest event in human history, except the
genesis of humanity. It is that big. Nothing before has happened like it.
Within a few generations the entire human species, every individual, will
experience more than the five senses can detect. Our understanding of
ourselves and experience of ourselves are changing dramatically. In ways
large and small we are beginning to sense ourselves as more than we thought
we were, more than bodies and minds, more than accidents in a random
universe of inert - dead - matter. From our emerging vantage point, not even
the stars themselves are dead. Everything is an expression of Life, a form
of Life. There is nothing but Life and we are Life.
With this transformation comes new potential as well as new experiences, a
new way of evolving as well as a new way of experiencing ourselves, and a
new understanding of power. The new way of evolving is through spiritual
growth. The old species evolved through survival. Now survival alone is
insufficient. We long for more than existence - we long for something even
more significant, for the reason we were born. We long to touch meaning and
purpose and to live them. We sense that we are on the Earth for a reason and
we thirst for that meaning.
The new way of understanding power is the alignment of the personality with
the soul. The old way of understanding power is the ability to manipulate
and control. That type of power is now counterproductive. It produces only
violence and destruction. The new potential is the Universal Human - humans
who are beyond nation, religion, race, sex, and economic circumstance; who
are citizens of the Universe (not children of the Universe); and whose
allegiance is to Life.
This is the backdrop against which every individual and collective
experience is now occurring, from the birth of a child to the dissolution of
a marriage to conflict between nations to economic turmoil to the emergence
of new interpersonal and social structures built on harmony, cooperation,
sharing, and reverence for Life. Without an understanding of the great
transformation in which we are participating, we cannot grasp the magnitude
of the changes that are underway in the human experience and in us. We
cannot comprehend or use the new capabilities that we are acquiring or
attain the new aspirations that are now coming to us.

Soul Institute is to assist individuals in the creation of authentic power,
to contribute to the new species that we are becoming by providing tools
that help illuminate the differences between frightened parts of the
personality and loving parts of the personality, reveal opportunities to
challenge frightened parts and cultivate loving parts, choose intentions
consciously, consult intuition, and trust the Universe. We invite you to
experiment with your creativity, follow your healthiest impulses, and begin
to use your life consciously and constructively.
I am grateful to be on this journey with you.
