Moving from the Third Day of Creation to the Third Insight of the Celestine Prophecy, we see the world not as a mere material construct, but as a matter of energy. According to the insight, ¨We now experience that we live not in a material universe but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing of attention in the desired direction (“where attention goes energy flows”), influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives.¨
In our Agricultural/Industrial systems, our food, and indeed all of the ¨stuff¨ that we use in our day to day operations, are something ¨out there¨ and separate from us, things that are created by other people and that we must attain. However, there is now a growing understanding of our symbiosis with the world and a realization that these things which sustain us need not be so far removed. As a matter of fact, it may just be this a symptom of the Agricultural/Industrial mindset which has created such a feeling of separation and disparity in so many of us. Fortunately, that mindset is changing into a more fully developed understanding of our place in the world and how it truly operates.
With the recent scientific findings now reinforcing what the spiritually minded have known for a long time, we are fully understanding that even the material world that we so take for granted is nothing more than energy in motion. Should we be able to recognize that, as well as our ability to harness and cultivate the kind of energy we want to see reciprocated in our lives, we will be able to use own own energy to nurture the life around us, in people, in animals, and in plants.
On a practical level, this means that we will be able to develop a healthier relationship with the community of people around us, and with the food that will fill our tables. No longer to we need to subjugate ourselves to food that is grown with genetic modification and harsh poisons where profit is the grandest motive. By integrating permaculture design and realizing the potential we have by growing food throughout the land we share with one another, we have the ability to grow food with the energy of love instead of merely money. And if we can harness that potential in the food we grow, we can also use that energy to transform our relationships with people from the competitive order of industrialism to the collaborative nature of true wisdom.
