WE NEED A SENSE OF UNITY -ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
We need a sense of the unity of life and of humans for the sake of human welfare and for the survival of the planet. We need a sense of unity with the cosmos so that we can connect with Reality. But we also need a sense of individuality, for the sake of our own dignity and independence and of the loving care for others. We need it to appreciate each natural form, each animal and plant, each human person in their uniqueness.
All things in the universe are one. They are all made of the same basic matter/energy, and they interact with one another, constantly. All things on earth are one: plants, animals, rocks, oceans and atmosphere. All living creatures had a common origin, all depend on each
other, and shape and are shaped by non-living things. Life has radically altered the earth's atmosphere, and molded many aspects of its geology. The Gaia system is an organic evolving whole embracing the biosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and atmosphere. All humans on earth are one. We descend from the same family of common ancestors. We are, in a quite literal sense, siblings, and like siblings we depend on each other's love and care and responsibility. We are interdependent not just in our families and communities, but in nations, and increasingly on a global scale - just as we are also interdependent with nature and the earth.
THE MESSAGE — ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
When the dimension of time is added to the dimensions of space and the 4-dimensional universal space-time continuum is shaped, two spirits which are located in different spots of space-time will be able to be one, or structural elements of One Universal Spirit, which would compose an inseparable and ineffable being
Humanity is unaware of its great strength, and it is unaware of its great perils. It is these two things that have brought a New Message into the world for the protection and the advancement of humanity. World seeks to protect human civilization and to give it new life, a new purpose and a new direction, to warn you of the great adversities you face now that are greater than anything your ancestors ever had to deal with. Therefore, so much depends on human response — human responsibility, the ability to respond. So much depends upon your awareness and decisions, and your ability to recognize you are living in a time of evolution, in a time of transition into a more difficult and more hazardous world. So much depends upon human intelligence, the intelligence of individuals who can respond to a New Evolution and can share its wisdom and its guidance with others. So much depends upon the power and the presence of Knowledge within each individual, a power and a presence that is so unknown and that it is not heeded by most. You have to love humanity and have great faith in humanity to believe that humanity will make the right decisions and follow the path that will provide a new way forward. You have to love humanity and have faith in the spirit of humanity and in the promise and the talents of humanity despite its tragic and prolonged mistakes.
Do not think another race in the universe will come to save you, for those that claim to do so are only here to take advantage of your weakness and your naiveté. Do not think that if human civilization fails, something better or greater can be established as a consequence. Do not underestimate the power of the time in which you live and the great adversities that you now face that still remain unknown to so many.
Do not lose faith in the power and presence of Knowledge within you and within others to recognize and to respond to this and to see the great opportunity to forge a new union in the human family — a union built by necessity, a union built in the fire of necessity, a union built by the recognition that together you can succeed, where in the past you have failed. The warning is upon you, but the blessing is upon you as well. For life loves humanity and does not want to see you fail or lose your freedom as you emerge into a Greater Community of life in the universe.
You must have this love and this faith and this commitment to humanity as well. If you do, you will begin to experience the power and the grace of Knowledge within yourself. You will see that you too have come into the world at this time specifically to make a unique contribution to certain people in certain circumstances. And though you may not yet realize who these people are or what these circumstances are, you will feel the power and presence of Knowledge moving you, freeing you, reshaping your life, recasting your commitments, moving you in a new direction.
the future of humanity will be a time of transitionMay this blessing be yours to experience, for it is a blessing truly. May these times arouse a newer, deeper commitment and a deeper courage. May you see that your future is before you to be decided at this time of great transition. May you recognize that you as an individual must make these decisions and not simply rely upon others to make them for you. May you recognize that the power and the grace of Knowledge live within you, beneath the surface of your mind. Within your heart, you know things the mind cannot understand, and that your true identity exists beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect, in the power and the presence of Knowledge. May you hear these words with your heart with an open mind to see the great love that they demonstrate and the great respect and trust that they offer to you, who do not yet have your own self-respect and trust. May New Evolution illuminate your life and give you strength and courage to navigate the difficult times ahead, and to speak as one voice in this world, and to forge the foundation for a greater future for the human family.
DISSOLUTION OR UNITY : ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
We live in a time of cosmic bifurcation, we live in a time of unprecedented existential threats to life on Earth, including climate change, deforestation, food insecurity, and wildlife numbers in free fall, human overpopulation. the society is in turmoil. There is more and more violence. There’s more and more conflict. We are acting as if we are unconnected to our own nature, to our environment, our own world and we produce high entropy and non-coherence . While the universe shows increasing complexity the human society shows disintegration. What dissolves? all the traditional systems of thought, metaphysical , theological, ideological, all the traditional identities that separated us. The question is: will we get lost in the dissolution or will we unite in a higher consciousness, the cosmic consciousness? We forgot that we are part of nature, and we need to come back to this realization and live accordingly, we are built into nature, and our well-being is linked to the health of nature and the evolution of the universe. We need a sense that we are part of a larger whole, and that this whole has coherence.
We are a part of the whole but we have lost this sense, this intuitive wisdom, there is a higher reality than the one in front of our eyes. It is the intuitive recognition of our oneness with nature and with each other. Does that mean that nature is in essence a reflection of the higher consciousness of the cosmos. Cosmos is a whole, the nature is a whole, intrinsically interconnected system. Life is a whole system. The biosphere is a whole system. It’s time to reconnect to the spirit, to the intelligence that is the invisible but real governing force in the universe. We must allow our own intuitive intelligence to guide our hearts. While, we have discovered the awesome power of the atom, the incredible power of information, and all the things we can have when we join them together. We are using this discovery indiscriminately, for the immediate satisfaction of our selfish wants, without regard to what it does to others, to nature, and so ourselves. We are not owners but partners in life and the universe.
POST-POLITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS : ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
I am part of nature, and nature is part of me. I am what I am in my communication and communion with all living things. I am an irreducible and coherent whole with the web of life on the planet. Nature, the human community and the universe is connected with the Cosmos. We recognize the deep truth that I am the other. This expresses the concept from contemporary physics of “entanglement”, which is a quantum phenomenon. All atoms, all cells are connected, deeply.” The friendship is the connection we feel for each other, wherever he is, other people, animals, plants, stars. I am part of society, and society is part of me. I am what I am in my communication and communion with my fellow humans.I am an irreducible and coherent whole with the community of humans on the planet.
The separate identity I attach to other humans and other things is but a convenient convention that facilitates my interaction with them. My family and my community are just as much “me” as the organs of my body. My body and mind, my family and my community, are interacting and interpenetrating, variously prevalent elements in the network of relations that encompasses all things in nature and the human world. The whole gamut of concepts and ideas that separates my identity, or the identity of any person or community, from the identity of other persons and communities are manifestations of this convenient but arbitrary convention. There are only gradients distinguishing individuals from each other and from their environment and no real divisions and boundaries. There are no “others” in the world: We are all living systems and we are all part of each other. Attempting to maintain the system I know as “me” through ruthless competition with the system I know as “you” is a grave mistake: It could damage the integrity of the embracing whole that frames both your life and mine. I cannot preserve my own life and wholeness by damaging that whole, even if damaging a part of it seems to bring me short-term advantage. When I harm you, or anyone else around me, I harm myself. Collaboration, not competition, is the royal road to the wholeness that hallmarks healthy systems in the world. Collaboration calls for empathy and solidarity, and ultimately for love. I do not and cannot love myself if I do not love you and others around me: We are part of the same whole and so are part of each other.
THE WORDS ARE POWER - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
At the dawn of the third decade of the 21st century, the existence of humankind has become highly perilous. We are cutting down our forests, exhausting our fresh water aquifers, and losing our vital top soils. We are stripping the life from our oceans and replacing it with hundreds of millions of tons of plastic waste. We are flooding our environment with toxic industrial chemicals. Our pollution is driving climate change that causes heat waves, droughts, and wild fires that shred the fabric of life on the continents. And we are bringing new generations into the world, millions who require access to the resources of a dignified existence. The scope and breadth of the threats to life are increasing day after day. This is not a sustainable mode of development.
The root cause of our ills stems from a mistaken way of thinking. What exactly does this mean? it means that we have been thinking of ourselves mainly as material beings, while denying our spiritual nature. Because we think that we exist as material beings and nothing more, we place first importance on protecting our bodies from harm and prolonging our material existence. Our spiritual nature, if considered at all, is treated as a secondary aspect of our physical being—something not to be taken seriously. To us, the only things that matter are the phenomena that appear in the material world—things that can be seen, or heard, or touched, or measured, but we know that our senses deceive us, the senses are a construction of the brain. What we consider a real world is an illusion. The domination of the positivist and materialist thought leads to irrationality and destruction.
Yet where has this approach led us? Has it brought us a sense of happiness and fulfillment? Rather than living each day in a spirit of joyful cooperation, with our hearts filled with bright hope and happy anticipation, we have isolated ourselves from others and viewed them as rivals or enemies. Our thoughts are flooded with suspicion, fear and greed, leading to an endless cycle of war, poverty, starvation, and environmental destruction. Unless we wake up soon and pay attention to our spiritual nature, there will be no future for humanity on Earth.
Words are life. Words are light. Words are power. Words are energy. Words are truth. Words can enliven and words can also kill. Words can give hope, or plunge us into despair. People use words to build peace, and use words to make war. Words can create walls between cultures, religions, and nations. And words can also build bridges. The existence of an individual, a family, a community, a country, and our planet is being led to good or to evil through the power of the words we speak. The words we speak are responsible for everything that happens in this world. We, therefore, must be responsible for the words we speak. On behalf of future generations, I hope that each of us will do all we can to speak only bright, light-filled words, so that one day, our descendants will be born into a world filled with light. There is no time to lose. Starting at this very moment, I hope all of us will take a close look at the words we have been using and make constant efforts to fill them with brightness.
No one is going to change our lives for us. No one is going to change the world for us. It is time for each of us to recognize the prodigious, creative power that is unleashed by each word we speak, and to consciously speak only words filled with gratitude, encouragement, and good intention. From this moment forward, let us choose words that resonate with love and forgiveness for ourselves and others. We can certainly do it if we take just one step forward. One step at a time, one word at a time, we can uproot the germs of tragedy and of isolation in our consciousness and convert them into waves of happiness and conciliation. For the sake of ourselves, for the sake of Mother Earth, and for the sake of future generations, let us use words that contribute to the positive evolution of humankind on Earth.
BETTER THAN GOLD - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
Better than grandeur,
better than gold is the shrine of love,
the haven of life is a heart
that can feel a woe in affliction’s hour,
better than pride and vanities is the balm
of a tender hug with its soothing power,
when all decay and fade away trust the blessings of heaven.
WITH HUMBLE HEART - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
All this universe, to the furthest stars,
all beyond them, is your flesh, your soul.
And one day, under the great sky in solitude and silence,
with humble heart shall I stand face to face with the abyss,
then, I think, i will understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water, and why flowers are painted in tints, why there is music in leaves,
and why the waves sending their chorus of voices
to the heart of the listening earth when I sing to make you dance.
TREASURES - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
Treasures come in so many ways:
The sun that lights the cloudy days,
a rose that blooms within an hour.
a baby that staring with a wandering gaze,
a dolphin’s dance on ocean waves,
a sky full of snowflakes of rarest form,
a beautiful white and peaceful dove.
We’re all part of that magical dust
which fills our soul with light.
YOU KNOW MY CHILD - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
My child, let your life come into the world of darkness
like a spark of light, without flicker and pure,
and thank them in silence.
You know, my child, they are cruel in their greed and envy,
their words are disguised knives thirsting for blood.
But do not be afraid, my child, go and stand in their hearts,
and let your gentle eyes fall on them
like the forgiving serenity of the night.
My child, let them see your face and so they know it
meaning of all things, let them love and love one another.
Go, at sunrise, open and lift up your heart like a blooming flower,
and at sunset, bend your head
and silently complete the worship of the day.
Remember, my child, gods and demons,
ghosts and elves are fragments of one,
built by the hand of the abyss.
So, move on, go to the shore of the vast darkness,
there, is the Great Meeting of Children,
there, the sea gives a smile to the beach,
there, sing the waves facing death.
