The Seven Statements are evidence-based observations about the nature of objective reality. They are not new discoveries or insights or original thinking. Rather, they represent a synthesis of generally accepted knowledge based on a three-part convergence model or paradigm which I call “Integrative Holistic Spirituality.”
The three foundational pillars of this convergence model are as follows:
(1) The timeless wisdom of the ancient mystics, sages and saints;
(2) The cornerstone traditional teachings of the world’s major religions;
(3) Modern scientific research from the study of spiritually transformative experiences and consciousness.
As such, the Seven Statements may reflect the most accurate comprehension of reality and timeless universal truth formulated by human beings over millennia of reflection, contemplation, mystical experience, scholarly effort and research.
It is conceivable that global acceptance of the Seven Statements could result in the creation of an optimal future for Earth and all its inhabitants. The Seven Statements are subject to revision, if or when new scientific evidence emerges which compels their modification.
They are as follows:
1. Consciousness is infinite and eternal, transcending time, space and matter, including the physical body and the brain. Therefore, consciousness does not and cannot die. It is indestructible and immortal. Highly evolved consciousness is the primal causal impetus of all things, through directed focused intentionality in a state of perfect unconditional love fully resonant with zero-point energy, which thereby places all quanta and matter at effect.
2. Consciousness can exist uncontained by form in the realm of spirit, or it may materialize in various physical forms in the dimensions of time and space as needed to evolve spiritually, or to voluntarily serve others altruistically, throughout multiple incarnations during the endless journey of eternal existence.
3. There is an unfathomable yet knowable infinite intelligence or creative Source, which gives rise to all creation, from which all things in the cosmos originate and to which all things in the cosmos return. This Source or Creator is best described as the ultimate in non-judgmental perfection, knowledge, magnificence, beneficence, compassion, kindness, empathy, goodness and unconditional love.
4. All things in the cosmos are one vast interrelated, interconnected, interdependent, interfaced, integrated whole, meaning that all things are one, inextricably linked in the grand matrix of creation.
5. Unconditional love is the organizing principle of the universe. It is the bedrock of all that exists. Unconditional love for all things, including oneself, is the evolutionary imperative underlying all of creation. It is the highest state of being one can achieve and the ultimate evolutionary goal of all spiritual progression.
6. In the cosmic web of creation, there is a vast matrix of cause-effect relationships, meaning that what one does to all other things, one does to oneself. What is sown is reaped. As below, so above. What goes around comes around. Free will is a universally honored and upheld principle and practice, while so too is accountability for all actions or inactions in the exercise or expression of one’s free will. Any use of free will which is not consistent with unconditional love and compassion brings eventual adverse karmic consequences.
7. The good of the many is served and upheld by the good of the one. The good of the one is served and upheld by the good of the many. The whole can be only as healthy and strong as its constituent parts. The constituent parts can be only as healthy and strong as the whole itself. Therefore, the whole is dependent on its parts, and the parts are dependent on the whole. A constant symbiotic and synergistic dynamic or gestalt exists between the whole and its parts. A chain can be only as strong as its weakest link. Any weakness or vulnerability potentially compromises the health, vitality and viability of the whole.
