"Simply put, it is as if, when we put ourselves aside, divest ourselves of the weighty burden of our habits, knowledge, and memories, we are free to make all things new--or rather, make a place where all things might be made new and spoken for the first time."

-- Christopher Bamford, from "Negative Capability" in the Summer 2005 issue of PARABOLA

monthly intention

June Inspiration:

Each one of us is a thread in the tapestry of the collective unconscious, and the colors we exude and the texture of our energy affects the look, feel, and health of the whole picture. From this higher perspective you can literally see our strong connection with each other. We are each responsible for the bigger picture by the manner in which we join the tapestry. This month we seek to inspire you to consciously think about your contribution to the tapestry of civilization.

IONS monthly intentions for a global shift in consciousness:

  • I picture the world as it is today, knowing that I am a part of this planet's evolutionary design. I choose to live to my fullest capacity in a spirit of openness, intellectual integrity, and freedom.
  • I am conscious that I have a role in the unfolding story of humanity. I am connected to the whole. My intentions find a deep resonance in the hearts and minds of others.
    Together, we stir the depths of human ingenuity, creativity, and collective healing.
  • Together, we are part of an evolutionary pulse bringing into focus our collective responsibility for planet Earth and its diverse peoples.
  • My intention is to be in a place of wisdom, compassion, and abiding exuberance for serving our common work and the greater good.
