We are not speaking here of life after death in some mythical heaven, but life more abundant in real time in history. We are speaking of the next stage of our social evolution. A Spirit-Motivated Plan of Action for the 21st Century We now know that a plan of action or program is encoded in the genes of every living organism that guides it from conception through gestation, birth, maturation, and death. Planet Earth is a living system. Is it not possible, then, that there is a prepatterned (but not a predetermined) pattern or tendency, an encoded design for planetary evolution just as there is for biological evolution?
We buried food with our dead. We had intimations of immortality. We listened for voices and heard signals from gods, from higher beings. The universe appeared alive. Yet we were born into a natural system of killing and being killed. Earth is an environment of violence. Millions of species act as biological weapons, consuming each other alive for survival. For all our cruel behavior, however, humans were the first to attempt not to kill, to try to preserve species, to bring compassion into the natural system.
In many instances our existing systems are not humane; homelessness, hunger, disease, and poverty consume the lives of hundreds of millions of people and the environment continues to degrade. We can view the reactive and conservative ways of the past few decades as a survival mechanism as the caterpillar's immune system rigidly holding on to old structures until new social systems are mature enough to function. As we enter the 21st century, millions of people are awakening in every field, culture, Page 12 and ethnic group.
