What is synergy, really?

While preparing for a conference call about how to support more expressions of actual synergy in the world, I went into meditation and asked the question, “What is synergy, really?” Somehow the usual notion of synergy as the whole being greater than the sum of the parts felt insufficient. Intuitively, I sensed that there was more information available about how and from where this greaterness arises. In particular, I could “see” that what makes the whole more than the amalgamation of the parts comes not from some complex interaction of the parts as much as through an opening that the parts are coherently able to invoke.

Below is what came through during the meditative inquiry.

1. Synergy is a luminous expression of THE ONE behind the entire Game of Creation. It reaches from FREEDOM well into the territory of delusion as a compassionate act.

2. The constituent parts of a given system that are said to be in synergy are collaborating to create the conditions for the emergence of a truly new manifestation. These conditions are a kind of opening to the Ground of Spontaneous Being within conditioned reality. The new manifestation emerges through this opening, from the profound depths of Being.

3. Synergy is therefore facilitating direct Creation by the MOST LUMINOUS ONE, the “rays” of which combine to form the truly new creation within the bounds and conditions of that which has already been created. At the same time, this new creation overflows the apparent boundaries and evolves the conditions as an expansion of Consciousness.

4. As a technology of invocation, synergy is a siddhi – a power that lies latent within each and every one until it is awakened. This siddhi can be developed and mastered by individuals, groups, and even organizations.

5. Embedded within the Ground of Spontaneous Being there is a Light source that emanates new subtle material into the dimensions of existence. This light is always on, always searching for an opening through which to deliver “spiritual medicine” for the Mind that has gone astray.

6. This spiritual medicine of actual synergy is always unique, and is always an expression of indivisible Totality. It is a corrective, compassionate response to the sufferings of the Mind that has attempted to divide itself.

7. Looking to understand this medicine in terms of the components that have assembled to invite it forth is futile. Even though there is the appearance of causal relationships between the parts and the whole – for this preserves the veil of Maya – no formula for repeating true synergy will ever be found. Synergy is far beyond that which can be mechanized.

8. The deepest roots of synergy are beyond Buddha and the Christ, and beyond all that has ever been named. The invocation of synergy reaches all the way to the Source of Being.

9. An aptitude for enlightenment is a requirement for those who would invoke synergy where it is needed the most. Presence; discernment; willingness to serve the Whole; the capacity to listen deeply, to the point where one’s ears become the ears of Divinity; utter and total commitment to Good; and the longing for a world that is free from all delusion… These are some of the attributes that are needed. The more awakening one has, and the more these capacities have been developed, the more synergy will course through the life of the one or ones becoming thus realized.

10. Transfiguration of bodies is the by-product of synergy. Expect a miracle. Expect a new body. Expect a healed world. Expect that all of these experiences are your birthright within this lifetime. The only ingredient that has been missing is the correct understanding of what synergy is. The instant – this instant – that such information is made available, the Light that is hidden within the deeper domains of substance will begin to emerge and assume the forms that are required for the healing of all life forms and the restoration of Heaven as a lived experience.

11. Synergy is thus a miracle technology of the MOST LUMINOUS, to be wielded by those who have realized the GREAT NUMINOSITY beyond all appearances of the uncountable realms of Creation. These keys have been given on this sacred day in the unspooling of Divine Time. This ever-widening moment is indeed the long-awaited dawn of the New Humanity.

The New Consciousness

The “New Consciousness” – or “New Pattern” of activity and consciousness on the planet – is both the knowledge and experience that All of Life, and everything in Nature, is One Whole and Indivisible System of Being. This One Whole System has countless layers of individuals and collectives expressing all manner of possibilities, and yet there is only One Process going on. 

Naturally, what is one and indivisible cannot truly be separated into, for instance, Evolutionary Leaders and not-Evolutionary Leaders, even though we may speak that way as a convenience. The experience of our physicality becomes supremely joyful when we realize that, whatever the appearances, there is nothing outside of our One Shared Being, and nothing can ever be “other.” The genius of Creation is that what appears to be outside according to the five senses is always present in some form on the inside. There is always a correspondence that can be discovered, and especially when we are curious about how the One Whole System functions, our abilities to tune into Nature’s subtle, though always available, information channels are awakened. 

Since there is only a single Whole Living System, it is true that, to paraphrase Chief Seattle, “whatever we do to the Web of Life, we do to ourselves”… and this applies equally to our fellow beings. To condemn anyone or anything that appears to be outside of us gives rise to external conflict and produces disease inside of us. Similarly, to condemn anything on the inside energizes conflict on the outside as well as disease processes within. Each and every form of rejection, no matter how subtle, produces conflict within our One Shared Being. This conflict will eventually show up as challenges for our individual and collective bodies, and these challenges will be experienced in one form or another by all. All such episodes are a call to the New Consciousness; they are a means of getting our attention so that we might choose to step into the greater wisdom that is beckoning. Wherever there is conflict in any form, there is the opportunity to realize the New Consciousness more fully. And in this New Consciousness, there are much more empowered ways of transforming and healing the world. 

For one living in the New Consciousness, the richness and texture of life are radically enhanced, and there can be experiences of an almost overwhelming joy. One who lives in this New Consciousness experiences a state of vastly expanded identity without losing the beauty of individual experience or the ability to attune, discern, enjoy life, and make decisions from wisdom. Individuality is fully expressed within the New Consciousness, and at the same time one’s words and actions are naturally harmonized and aligned with the Whole of Nature, offering immeasurable benefit to the One Whole System. Thus we come to realize that there is actually no trade-off between the good of the individual and the good of the Whole. Instead, there is Synergy. The individual and the Whole are indivisible, and the well-being of one is the well-being of All. At the same time, the diverse multitude of temporary distinctions and expressions becomes the basis for the experience of… Beauty. 

From the perspective of the New Consciousness, the entire progression of human events is seen as a movement from the entrenched belief in separation and the myriad painful reflections of that belief, to ideas and experiences of interconnectedness, and finally to the direct knowing and joyful experience of underlying indivisibility. Although codes of conduct and moral injunctions have served to maintain a semblance of coherence on the playgrounds of earlier stages, these structures are successively released as one’s capacity to move in a way that is attuned and aligned with the Whole increases. Thus the individual who lives in this New Consciousness has realized the natural, comprehensive, and spontaneous harmony, which cannot be imposed or even taught, but which must inevitably awaken. Once the New Consciousness has awakened, the true and lasting Peace is finally lived as the obvious and most fulfilling choice.
