Sacred Commerce and a Holographic Economy
Dedicated For Two Jules,
Those like-spirited souls who resonate with Spiritual Philanthropy will perceive intuitively and naturally that we naturally give and receive. Furthermore, it is clear that we have infinite gifts to share unconditionally with each other and the world. Love. Wisdom. Time. Energy. Passion. Attention. Skills. Knowledge. Expertise. Connections. Perceptions. Resources. Currencies. Art.
A Spiritual Philanthropist remembers that the separation between self and other is a subjective perception that fulfils its role in life, but is not the entire story.
A Spiritual Philanthropist comprehends our holographic nature of existence; where each individual reflects the whole of reality and the whole reflects back as individuals. We seem to be co-creating reality together as a family of beings on Planet Earth. This interplay between wholes and parts inspires the realisation that each of us carries within us a spark of Universal Consciousness which is forever entangled and connected to every other part of Itself. Therefore, serving others is equal to serving one’s self and serving one’s self is equal to serving others. It’s simply the Golden Rule in action and Spiritual Philanthropists live passionately through this lens of unified consciousness expressing itself as diversity.
Philanthropy (etymologically) is the love of humanity
Spiritual Philanthropy is the love of love… an act of unified consciousness.
Spiritual Philanthropy implies investing our whole self into life and aspiring towards Return On Intention and Return On Imagination. It does not exclude financial aspirations, ultimately it encourages the aforementioned varieties of wealth, abundance and prosperity. Spiritual Philanthropy simply transcends and includes the current triple bottom line mind-set into a more integral stage of co-creative expression; the heart coherence of a holographic economy where expansion and contraction are simply the eternal pulse of gifting and receiving. A breath of fresh air, Spiritual Philanthropy is syntony; an alignment with unified consciousness and therefore alignment with the people, communities, projects and passions that inspire us.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make any sense.” Rumi
I am inviting kindred spirits to enter the field of Return On Intention & Return On Imagination… to invest their Gifts into the world. This is Rumi’s field where we all meet and play and co-create. The details and structures manifest effortlessly when we are invested together in love, in unified consciousness. Solutions arise naturally, effortlessly, when we trust life. When our souls lie ‘in this grass’ of unified consciousness, the ‘world is too full to talk about’, and money, business, control, fear, hate, ‘doesn’t make any sense’.
The participation I am inviting is into love itself; where financial return on investment evolves into its highest frequency of expression, Return On Imagination. The edge of cultural evolution is where spiritual philanthropy transcends and includes all current models of business, investment, economics and philanthropy. Because this is an integral, synergistic process, we can preserve the best of what now exists in the changing forms of energetic structures and rest in that which never changes.. unified consciousness… LOVE!
Let us announce the arrival of the embodied grounding of these New Paradigms for unified consciousness. Let us invert the processes we have come to accept as natural like creating structures from the outside in. Let us invert the reductionist, masculine perspective of the parts dominating the whole. We no longer need to build ‘things’. Let us start from the ground of being, love, and nourish, support, attend to and cultivate our unity through that expression. The ground of unified consciousness and love is where every world truly begins.
This term, coined by Eric Jantsch in his book Design for Evolution, described one of the ways of accessing conscious evolution, as mentioned earlier. The relationship between the cosmic design and the individual intensifies through some form of syntony or resonance. Syntony feels like guidance, intuition, or direct knowing. We do not have to figure out what to do. We know. We perform with spontaneous right action. The inner world of subjective experience and the outer world of objective reality blend and become one. We and the world “outside us” are interconnected in one larger field of intelligence. The great flashes of awareness that mystics have experienced throughout history are reinforced and normalized. Each of us becomes more attuned to the deeper patterns; intuition and intellect blend. The mystical state becomes grounded and manifested in spirit-motivated social action.

THE 54th GIFT – ASPIRATION
MATERIAL AND SPIRITUAL LIQUIDITY When the 54th Shadow (greed) transforms into a higher frequency, the 54th Gift of Aspiration is born. Aspiration here refers to the energy to aspire to something beyond the material realm. Aspiration contains within it the seeds of all higher consciousness. At the Gift level, aspiration has to do with working with others for the benefit of others. The Gift concerns the way in which energy is invested. At the Shadow level, any accumulated energy went back into the drive to accumulate more, with no other real purpose. At this higher level of frequency, accumulated energy is recycled and used to support people lower down in the hierarchy. In this way, a truly healthy model is created. The roots support the branches, twigs and flowers and the fruit fertilises the roots. The 54th Gift is aware that all systems in nature are interconnected and therefore cutting off energy from one area will ultimately deplete your own resources.
The 54th Gift aspires to a higher vision of prosperity. It still operates within its own community or organization, but it knows that the secret of real growth and expansion (the 53rd Gift) lies in mutually cooperative models between different groups or organizations. Aspiration allows you a much broader vision of how to create prosperity for everyone. Here we see ambition moving beyond the personal and into the communal. These people want their entire community to thrive in order that they can draw more and more people up the hierarchy away from the self destructive patterns of the lower frequencies. The by-product of this cross-fertilisation with other communities is exponential growth for everyone. Today the 54th Gift is more in evidence as more and more high-level businessmen and women begin to think in these new holistic business terms. However, this new phenomena is just being born into the world. People are only now realising that businesses with a holistic perspective can be even more successful than greed-driven businesses.
This shift in perspective from self-serving to community-serving is giving birth to a whole new paradigm in business itself. For the first time since the industrial revolution, people are asking what the real purpose of business is. Instead of being an end in itself, business is being seen as a means to create a better and more sustainable world. Through networking with other businesses at similar high frequencies, enormous change is possible in our world. As these so called cultural creatives begin to work together and dovetail their energies and resources, they open up entirely new vistas that could potentially transform our entire planet. When enough people with aspiration overcome their individual fear and competitiveness, they will create a deep and lasting equilibrium in the global economy. The real urge behind aspiration is to seek out this higher harmony, and in the material world this means moving money from places where there is too much to places where there is not enough.
The Gift of Aspiration has some other fascinating qualities connected to the transformation of energy into more rarified frequencies… The 54th Gift also transfers its higher frequency through the medium of physical presence, but in doing so it immediately put others at ease. You can smell a supportive energy just as easily as you can smell fear. Thus the 54th Gift has its own biofeedback loop that creates trust wherever it goes.
Because the 54th Gift attunes to a higher communal vision, it only attracts people who resonate with this same subtle frequency. Therefore, it is essential that people with this Gift meet people face to face at the beginning of their relationships and that they do their business in the flesh. The 54th Gift has a deep instinctive understanding of money and energy through this genetic resonance to the liquid nature of memory. Wherever energy or money is kept in a liquid state and allowed to flow between people and organizations, prosperity is engendered. When it is frozen or amassed for too long it prevents further expansion. The same laws that apply within the human body also apply to society and economics.
As the energy of the Gift of Aspiration reaches higher frequencies it becomes more spiritual. Thus these people also understand energy flow and transformation as taught by various yogic systems and disciplines… The flow of prosperity is directly proportional to the flow of energy at all levels within your life, beginning with your own body, which is the foundation of all journeys to higher consciousness. The 54th Gift is the base plate for all systems of alchemical transformation from lower states of frequency into higher modes of consciousness, and as such it is an extremely powerful and influential gift.
