Imagineering – September 21, 2016 by Steve Beckow


City of the Future 456 I was contemplating how I could possibly supervise four large organizations and continue to write, after the Reval.

And I was building org charts in my mind, playing with this concept and that, and talking to my assistant.

And I suddenly saw us carrying the same vision and playing with it. Teasing something out of it here and adding something to it there. Fleshing this part out and recalibrating that part.

But fundamentally we were carrying the same vision.

This was realizational knowledge. I saw the matter in a flash and after that it was a settled question: Just express the vision well and unequivocally and ensure that everyone who comes on board can support that vision and bring it into reality.

Let me give an example of a vision.

Let’s take one of the four organizations – the Lightworkers Congress. (1) The function of the Lightworkers Congress is to channel lightworker’s contributions into collectively-funded, globally-focussed efforts to end world problems like hunger, drought, homelessness, pestilence, lack of sanitation, disease, etc.

That’s its purpose and I saw a number of us all carrying the same vision and working toward the same end.  That’s how we’d accomplish our task – by working with, refining, extending, and elaborating our shared vision.

I asked myself what word represents what it is we’re doing when we work this way and the word that came to mind was imagineering – not my word, but Walt Disney’s. We’re using our imaginations to engineer the end of global unworkability together.

We’ll soon have the equipment and then it’s our turn at bat.  Our turn to show what we can do. Our turn to turn this world around.

Just like the imagineers in my contemplative vision, we need to carry the shared idea with us that we can turn this world around, that we have the knowledge, the foresight and (soon) the means to transform the circumstances of our world such that life works out for everyone.

Holding that shared vision is the foundation upon which we generate and project our collective will to eradicate the global problem or condition of unworkability in question.

There has always been more than enough gold for global transformation in all areas of life and soon the first of the more-than-adequate funds to work our transformation will begin to flow.

I’m having a minor spiritual experience as I write this. It started earlier this afternoon and is beginning again, as I write.

I walked to the store and asked myself as I began my walk, “How can I make this walk contribute to world peace?” And I began waving the magic wand of my awareness around myself,  affirming, “I surround myself in peace.”

And I could very palpably feel it. Surprisingly so.

This sense of palpably feeling it was brand new to me. Oh, this was peace! Oh!

Then I lost my awareness of it in shopping.

Now here I am writing and that same palpable peace has come knocking again. It grows when I take the wand of my attention and circle my body with it.

Just like the energy bubble I built the other day when guidance suggested it, this is a peace bubble and it’s even more profound in its impact.

Peace is much more than a mere cessation of hostilities. It isn’t even a void of any sort or a subtraction of something.

It’s full of something so substantial, right, and profound that I cannot find words to describe it.  There’s nothing to compare it to. But then I say that about each new divine state I visit.

As with bliss and love, one can go deeper and deeper into peace and the deeper I’ve gone, the more incredible is the sense of solidity and certainty, appropriateness and fulfilment.

I’ve only had brief glimpses of a peace that deep. But it’s changed my mind on the subject. I feel like an ingenue, saying “I never knew….”
