We ask that you mention the source of this material in your publication(s), (the World Mind Society, and Matthew Webb) so as to promote the mission of this organization.

There can be no doubt that the world situation
today is grave. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the institutions,
governments, and traditional methods of society, have little effectiveness in
solving a collective crisis of global proportions. In this respect even
wholesale environmental destruction or international war, is not the true
essence of the modern crisis. Political parties and social policies are not in
themselves at the root of human suffering. Wars and corruption are not at
ultimate fault in the failure of world peace agendas. All of these conditions of
the modern age are but symptoms of a central problem, one that is far beyond the
reach of presidents and governments to remedy. Our worldwide social obstacle to
fulfillment as a species, comes from the central root of wrongly focused
consciousness. Therefore, the modern condition stems not from procedural
inadequacy, but from a deep spiritual deficit.


Thousands of years ago we began to collectively assume that the
purpose of life was the accumulation of material possessions beyond need.
Materialism arose through artificial thinking, and we began to fear truth and
our true nature, as spiritual beings. As we turned away from our spiritual
selves, we also began to de-value nature and even that which is called God, as a
spiritual resource. In doing this, we began believing that only what is
immediately perceived by the senses has any value in life. It is this spiritual
deficit which drains the energy away from all efforts at world peace. It is
materialism which robs our natural joy of its sparkle, making fear the
materialists’ ever-present shadow. To reverse the trends of the modern
condition, it is our responsibility to turn away from materialism and the
society which embraces it, to again realize the central purpose of life and
living. This central purpose is the expansion of consciousness. Consciousness
has always driven the course of evolution forward, and even now it is the
central foundation for every reading eye, every breath, and every act we
perform. To expand consciousness is therefore to fundamentally change and
improve our every act in life, and also to intentionally evolve ourselves and
our planet as conscious beings.


There can be no political solutions. The systems and laws
created by humanity are not the essence of reality, and cannot be the source for
our renewed progress in peace and spiritual prosperity. We cannot realistically
expect to find peace and fulfillment within the folly generated by politics or
modern governments of any kind. The reason for this is clear. There is yet a
much higher order than that which has been invented by courts, popes and
presidents. This higher order is known as Nature, and its edicts are those of
Natural Law. In applying ourselves to this higher order completely, and without
allowing interference from the inferior laws of human-kind, we are then freed to
ascend and evolve at will. But to accomplish this significantly greater degree
of enlightenment, the willingness to both reject society, and disregard its
petty considerations as irrelevant, is extremely useful. Modern beliefs in the
Dollar as God for instance, simply must be dethroned, and so must the
governments and corporations who peddle such religious notions. To reject
materialism is therefore necessary to significantly progress on the path of
spiritual realization. This act becomes a matter of lifestyle, and not just
intellectualism. In so doing we find that our only true need is to satisfy the
intentions of both our own souls and Nature/God.


The road to greater self realization is endless, and there is
no such thing as ultimate enlightenment, only higher and ever higher levels of
spiritual embodiment. One of the main obstacles to progress on this road, is
belief in that which is not in accord with natural law. In other words, belief
in the false, is as sure a deterrent to real progress, as is apathy and
ignorance. To expand our consciousness then, it is of paramount importance to
re-evaluate all the suppositions which make up the modern world. In so doing we
find that society has been permeated by the lies of centuries. These falsehoods
are a block to not only personal enlightenment, but world peace. The more false
beliefs are removed from the mind, the more consciousness will tend to naturally
expand. Likewise, the more consciousness expands, the more we tend to challenge
the status quo in the most fundamental manner, because clarity and love allow
insights into what is normally accepted as unchallengable.


Those who have already challenged the falsehoods of our day,
have emerged victorious in their defeat of personal illusion, to a great extent.
It is they who are ready to cooperate in the spirit of good will, for the
further growth of not only themselves, but the entire planet as well. In some
practitioners the realization of what is naturally true and therefore worthy of
life focus, (and what is not) has grown to a great extent. At this point they
are prepared to engage the power of their consciousness to actually
manifest a new world. It is understood at some level by such
persons, that intent is a force of consciousness which is capable of not only
transforming the self, but also the environment in which we live. As we combine
this inner force of Intent together for the sake of mutual upliftment, our
spiritual will begins to reverse the trends of society. In effect it begins to
transform the state of the World Mind, or collective consciousness of society.
Such effects are manifest initially on a psychic level, and subsequently on the
physical level of social relations. Just as love is made perceptible when lovers
enter an otherwise cold room, so too is are the loving intentions of meditators
from around the world, in combined focus.


Through group meditation we are making perceptible and
cumulative shifts in the "world vibration and intent", (World Mind). In so
doing, world meditations act as a psychic/social purifier, of international fear
and discord. The world crisis can ONLY be effectively addressed at this level of
international and domestic action. Political and social reform
cannot in themselves be successfully implemented by
throwing dollars at the collective symptoms of spiritual disease. Only by
addressing the root of the modern crisis, in the expansion of consciousness, do
we have any real hope of the lasting improvement in the human condition. This is
true because no system or constitution, no matter how noble its original
intention, can afford lasting peace so long as the consciousness of those who
implement it remains lacking. The maintenance of high(er) levels of
consciousness, using a progressive intent on the other hand, can take any system
or document, no matter how corrupt, and turn it into a productive and satisfying
social collective. Let us then turn our attention away from corrupt political
parties, social systems and governments, to the true source of governance which
cannot lead us astray. Let us return to nature and natural laws, to God and soul
for real nurturance in the application of genuine wisdom. In accomplishing this
we expand the essence which underlies our every act, and which the soul knows
well. This essence is consciousness itself, composed of energy, awareness and
intent, just like everything else in the cosmos.


There are very notably six major focuses, or
intentions, which have consciousness-expanding properties. These six are
described intensively by the Perpetual Raising series as;





  1. Energy, (the progressive gaining thereof).



  2. Vibration, (or love, and the progressive raising thereof).



  3. Clarity, (or awareness of awareness, and the progressive crystallization
    thereof).



  4. Expansion, (of the progressive enlargement/manifestation of any
    state).



  5. Right Intent/action, (ever increasing spiritual will).



  6. Right alignment, (the deepening of one’s connection to God, Nature and
    soul).



These have been described in detail previously, (see the
Perpetual Raising). The reader is invited to explore how these six intentions,
or focuses, combine to greatly expand ones’ consciousness raising efforts.



For the practitioners’ reference, the following table
demonstrates the effects in combining two or more elements of consciousness
expansion. This table reflects very similar results at the personal, group and
worldwide levels. Cross-reference the six elements of consciousness expansion
below to find their combined result. Note that clarity combined with clarity,
(the first cross-referenced cell below) simply results in more clarity, and
therefore an "X" is shown. Clarity combined with love, (vibrational height)
results in "Ecstasy, enhanced intelligence, great spiritual insight", etc…

Naturally, the graph above only shows the simple
combination of two types of Intentions at a time. For the advanced meditator who
has a disciplined mind, all six of the above elements can be used
simultaneously, or one after another in succession. In so doing the advanced
practitioner can render much greater results than those shown above. But in the
group setting where practitioners specialize in their Intentions, each
participant need only focus upon one type of Intent at a time, while keeping
aligned with other specialists and their effects. Such specialization amplifies
the group-mind strength of the meditation, to expand the consciousness of all
involved. This accounts for much of the psychic power inherent when
meditators specialize in their Intent, for the good of the group.


Individual practitioners and groups are invited to explore the
potentials of the multiple focuses listed above, in the World Raising
meditations. This table is only a rough outline of the potentials involved with
the multiple use of the six intentions above. Many potential effects other than
those listed are very possible. Only experience and experimentation will reveal
greater specifics, (and exceptions) which exceed the scope of this present text.


Groups and individuals are invited to try variations on the
meditational themes presented in this article series, (and that of The
Perpetual Raising)
. Practitioners within local groups may opt to
mutually focus upon only one of the six consciousness expanding focuses at a
time. A group may meet for instance, for the expressed purpose of gaining mutual
clarity, and projecting this sole quality to each other and the world. Greater
love, energy, right alignment, expansion, and spiritual will, may also be the
sole subject of group or individual focus, for the duration of a given
meditation. The most highly recommended technique however, is the specialization
of Intent within the group, meaning that each individual member take on one of
the six specialized roles above, for the good of the collective focus. When
meditators do this, they employ their specific focus in both raising themselves
and everyone else in the group AS ONE. Generators for instance, will
raise chi not only into their own bodies but all others present, by visualizing
the entire group as gaining energy, (see Perpetual Raising series). The minimum
recommended number for such specialized groups, (where each of the six
consciousness expanding elements is represented) is seven. This number includes
the six focuses above, as well as the position of Field Coordinator or Guide,
(see the Perpetual Raising series). Additional participants over the recommended
seven, are perfectly acceptable and desirable, due to the Group Mind
principle
.
In the case of our Global Group Mind Meditations, such
focuses render similar psychic effects, except at a distance. Remember that
consciousness is not bound by time or space.


Thus far we have discussed the raising of the World Mind of
Humanity, particularly in Part 3. The consciousness of the Earth however, (the
Earth Mind) may be raised even more readily than that of the World Mind.
Interestingly, the individual and group-mind raising of the Earth Mind, results
in various psychic effects, which are generally more pleasant for the
practitioner. Earth-raising Intentions create feedback that is qualitatively
different than that received from most modern human communities, or the World
Mind in general.


To focus awareness upon Nature, is to implicitly align ones’
consciousness with the plants, animals and minerals which compose it. Most
animals and plants do not possess the same mental capacities as the human being.
This fact however, does not imply that the consciousness (intent, awareness and
energy) of plants and animals, is to be underestimated. Plant and animal life
renders very sophisticated effects upon the fields of consciousness at large,
especially in terms of group mind influence. Their collective effects are
in fact very deep ones, reflecting a natural state of being which humanity has
currently forgotten, (for the most part). A forest for instance is a local group
mind, which is itself a splinter of the overall Earth Mind, just as a human
community is a splinter of the World Mind. The psychic effects of a forest,
(particularly one which has not been recently disturbed by human interference)
is a source for healing and spiritual regeneration. This is especially true of
old growth forests.


The natural states of being found in wild areas have very
profound qualities, which we may regain if the Intent to do so is in place.
Among these qualities are high, wide-spectrum vibrations, (feelings) high energy
levels, a purity of Intent, and expansive, unobstructed clarity. Even Divine
connection, (right alignment) is enhanced in nature. For these reasons, the
Native peoples of the world have always rightly considered nature to be their
very source and temple of God, and worship its forms accordingly.


In acquiring natural states of mind, we are returned to the
dignity of a balanced lifestyle, and deep wisdom for right living. The
practitioner should take every opportunity to align themselves with Nature and
natural areas, so as to regain their many psychic benefits. Alignment with the
Earth provides a psychic cleansing of the body/mind. The high vibrational levels
of natural areas, and their full spectrum of radiated, (psychic) emanations,
balances our state of being. They make us more receptive to the inputs of the
soul and the Divine. With knowledge of consciousness we may even access the
wisdom of the Earth Mind, as the holder of eons of wisdom, just as Native
peoples have always done. The Earth Consciousness maintains those states of
right living and evolutionary Intent, which benefits all creatures. Thus it is
an indispensable resource for spiritual regeneration, in this current
artificial-ized age.


To achieve greater mastery of the self and progress as souls in
bodies, we must make full use of our Earth connections, for these are our true
foundation as biological beings. So long as we are in a physical body, we must
attend to the physical realities of existence and spiritual practice. There is
no better way to care for the balance and well being of the mind and body, than
to stay aligned with the Earth Mind. This is accomplished in large part through
natural and practical living. It is also accomplished by communing with nature,
while in meditative states of consciousness. The same is true for our collective
consciousness. For society to regain its balance and natural wisdom, we must all
return en masse, to the Earth for council and healing. This is an inherent part
of spiritual practice and cannot be neglected.


The World Raising meditations mentioned previously, (for use in
World Mind improvement) may also be used in the context of Earth Mind benefit.
Basically, the same procedure may be employed in Earth Raising as those
mentioned in Part 3 of this series. Groups of practitioners may meet at a
specific time and place that is appropriate for meditation. In Earth Mind focus,
the place of meditation is ideally a natural area such as a forest. It should
also be one that will be relatively undisturbed. Holding the meditational
setting in a natural area is not a necessity, but it is a bonus for the
achieving and maintaining of higher consciousness. The felt, psychic emanations
of plants and animals act to relieve the stress of urban living, implicitly
performing the function of psychic protection and spiritual purification.
Forests act as a literal "psychic buffer" from the general stress and fear in
society. This makes them ideal places for meditation and psychic/spiritual work
of all kinds. If it is not possible for the group to meet in a natural area,
then an acceptable alternative will have to be a communion with nature via the
power of thoughtforms. To employ thoughtforms of this kind even while in the
midst of a large city, one need only hold the visualization of being in a deep
forest, (preferably involving all of the senses of sight, sound, touch, smell
and even taste). By picturing yourself in a forest in this way, you create a
resonant thoughtform-connection with nature, which is the second best thing to
being there yourself. Perform this thoughtform connection for 3-10 minutes prior
to your Earth Raising meditation.



Note the differences in the following meditation, to the World
Mind-raising format, (see Part 3);



1) Employ the usual procedure for meditational preparation.


2) Meditate together using a pre-agreed meditational form, such
as the Chakra Meditation. This step may be shortened according to preference,
and the experience level of the group.




  1. Once the desired state of consciousness has been gained, meditators may
    then


  2. then turn their focus to one another. A raising of mutual
    consciousness through group mind focus, will always enhance the group’s
    ability to project higher states of being into the environment. A group which
    first elevates itself through the mutual Intent raise, is then
    in a better position to psychically aid the Earth Mind. The higher the level
    of consciousness of an individual or group, the higher will their
    psychic/spiritual effects be, as a principle



    Note;


    The group may opt to include the local surroundings they are
    in, as a part of the mutual, group mind enhancement process. Each meditator
    may visualize and feel not only the psychic connections between themselves,
    they may also visualize and feel the connections with surrounding trees,
    animals, the land in general, etc. In essence, practitioners may include in
    their group mind, such entities as trees, animals and even surrounding
    regions.


    The group can then to proceed to raise its mutual level of
    consciousness through the Intent to do so, (as described by The
    Perpetual Raising
    series). The recommended length of this step is
    about 15-30 minutes, as coordinated by the Guide or other facilitator. Once a
    group has raised its collective level of consciousness to a degree that is
    mutually satisfactory, they may then proceed to step four.




  3. Step 4 consists of the employment of a group visualization of the entire
    natural world. Visualize our planet as if seen from space. See in the
    mind’s eye all the great remaining forested regions, the deserts, oceans,
    rivers, plains, the atmosphere, polar ice caps, the molten core beneath the
    surface, etc., of the Earth.




  4. While maintaining the image of the planet in the mind, see the influence
    of the group in the form of a bright light, extending out from the local
    region in which it exists, and spreading rapidly over the entire Earth, (and
    all of its natural areas).




  5. Expand the group mind state at the same time, while visualizing the
    expanding light in step five. Feel love, clarity, energy, right alignment and
    spiritual will expand outward from the group, (as registered by
    the feeling/Awareness throughout body). It is important to do this while
    maintaining the light visualization
    . Send love, clarity, greater
    energy, Divine connection, (right alignment) and spiritual will to all parts
    of the planet, including the Earth’s core and surrounding atmosphere. In
    sending these out simultaneously, a group of seven or more meditators can
    create a very powerful psychic effect. This effect is of great aid to the
    Earth Mind. Practitioners will note that after they send out such intentions
    for the aid of the Earth, it will respond by sending a reciprocating wave of
    consciousness back to the group on a progressive basis. The higher the states
    of consciousness sent into the Earth, the greater will its psychic feedback
    become. This is sometimes not the immediate case, when dealing with the World
    Mind of humanity. Be prepared for this feedback-reciprocation, it can give you
    an enormous spiritual boost!



  6. Intend that the Earth Mind as a conscious entity, gain the best
    possible benefit from the projected qualities of the group. Intend that
    the effects so projected, render permanent benefit for the Earth Mind and all
    of its creatures in general. In so doing you will gain the support of the
    Earth Mind, and achieve very high states of consciousness, (as well as receive
    profound insights on many occasions).
