Swami Beyondananda's 2006 State of the Universe Address

Swami Calls for an Up-Wising Wise Up, Everybody ...The Evolution Has
Begun!

By Swami Beyondananda


For years now, we've been hearing "shift happens," and wondering
when, where and how. Now finally, it looks as if the shift is about
to hit the fan. This is good news for all those shift fans who've
been wondering if the new age will arrive before old age does. Of
course, if you're looking for signs in the news, you won't find
them. At least, not yet. The news might as well be called
the "olds," because the world still seems stuck in greedlock, ruled
by fossilized fools fueled by fossil fuels. But I have been
receiving encouraging intelligence reports that say indeed, humans
are becoming more intelligent. Yes, people everywhere are wising up.
And that's great, because we could sure use an up-wising!

The evolution has begun. But before we see changes in the old needy-
greedy, we humans must change our consciousness -- and the first
step is becoming conscious of how unconscious we've been. As the
saying goes, the truth shall upset you free, and last year saw lots
of disillusionment. But what better to free us from the far more
dangerous condition of illusionment? If we want to stop the abuse of
power, the first step is to disabuse ourselves. So, here's some good
news: Despite a massive media impropaganda machine that feeds the
public "babblum" (strained bullshit made digestible for a simple
child's mind), more and more Americans are reading between the
lyins' and peering behind the Irony Curtain.

In 2005, Americans had to face the sad realization that the Bush
Administration's "pro-life" stance appears to be limited to the
unborn and the brain-dead. Despite being panned by critics
everywhere, the Iraqi Horror Picture Show continued its run, as
thousands and thousands of born fetuses - ours and theirs -- lost
their right to life. While we may or may not have saved face by
staying there, we have most definitely lost ass. And we've been
assured we'll be stuck in that morass until -- well, until there's
no more ass to lose. Meanwhile, more and more Americans reached
another sad conclusion: We're not in Iraq to keep the peace, we're
there to keep the pieces.

The signs of up-wising are everywhere. Even the most unpleasant
stories are beginning to break through the soundless barrier and
defy the President's "don't ask, don't tell" policy: "You promise
not to ask us what we're doing, and we promise not to tell you."
Although we've been inundated with "fear-gnomes" and ominously
warned we have to protect ourselves in this dogma-eat-dogma world, a
majority of Americans are no longer comfortable with the notion that
the only way to defeat the "evil-doers" in the world is to out evil-
do them. Although our President has assured us that "we don't
torture," it is now common knowledge that we simply send detainees
to countries that do torture when we want them to "testify under
oaf."

As for those progressives who've been whining that the
President "never listens" to them, well it turns out he's been
listening all along. And thanks to the so-called Patriot Act (which,
I understand, is about to be renamed the Eternal Insecurity Act), it
looks like he'll be able to listen in even more -- all in the name
of making us safe. But now even some Republicans are beginning to
see that there's a difference between protection and the "protection
racket." And with the recent revelations about Tom DeLay, Jack
Abramoff and other gold collar criminals, some of the more devout
conservatives have come to realize that the "family values" they
voted for bear an uncanny resemblance to Soprano Family values.

If there was any warm feeling in 2005, chalk it up to climate
change. Katrina hit, and in the government's response we saw a
future when at last all Americans will be equal -- where everyone
regardless of race or creed will be treated like Black folks.

Alarming Policies Have Awakened Millions!

Fortunately this is the State of the Universe Address, and from a
universal perspective, things are humming along quite nicely. It
turns out that the Earth is the talk of the Universe these days. In
fact, the odds-makers at the Intergalactic Enquirer say the odds are
actually in our favor: "We're betting on the human race to reach
critical mass before they get to critical massacre." And we could
beat the odds, if we finally gave up our addiction to getting even
and got odd instead. It stands to reason. If each of us used our
unique oddness to improve the odds for everyone, there would be no
need for getting even.

Yes, the up-wising has begun, and intergalactic observers are saying
that we have none other than George W. Bush to thank. How is that,
you may ask? Well, I am reminded of a story my guru Harry Cohen Baba
used to tell. A well-known minister died and arrived at the Pearly
Gates at the same time as a cab-driver from New York. The cabbie was
ushered in, but the clergyman was left waiting outside. After
waiting and waiting and waiting, he finally called over the
attending angel. "Excuse me, but I'm a renowned minister. How come
you let that cab-driver in, and I'm left waiting out here?" "Well,"
the angel said, "when you preached, everyone slept. But when he
drove, everyone prayed."

For millennia, spiritual teachers have been calling on us to go for
the highest common denominator, but we've always seemed to end up
with the lowest common dominator instead. And now, George W. Bush
has done what preachers, teachers and other far-sighted visionaries
have failed to do up until now: His policies have been so alarming,
that he has awakened a slumbering body politic that slept through
all previous alarms. Where others have failed, he has people all
across the world praying, "God help us!" And instead of waiting for
an intervention from above -- after all, we cannot expect to be fed
intervenously forever -- people are beginning to help themselves,
and even more importantly, help each other.

Sure, there are still plenty of Not-Sees out there who insist on not
seeing that we humans are all in the same boat. The good news is,
more and more Americans are getting that sinking feeling that
there's only one Earthship, and ignoring a leak because it's "on the
other side of the boat," is a mistake of titanic proportions.

We Are the Leaders We've Been Waiting For

America, the world's only super-power, doesn't need a revolution.
We've already had one, thank you. What is needed now -- and what has
already begun -- is the American Evolution where enough of us wake
up and see that those two political parties have been partying on
our dime, and we the people haven't been invited. Time to go beyond
choosing the lesser of two weasels. If we want to evolve the dream
of our Founding Fathers -- instead of devolve into the nightmare of
Big Brother -- we must become the leaders we've been waiting for.
I've said it before. The only force more powerful than a super-power
is a Super-Duper Power -- the power of the people plus the power of
love. And anyone who doesn't believe we are a Super-Duper Power,
well they have been super-duped!

It's true, many people still feel that the affairs of the world
should be left to the bolder and badder among us. But look what that
leaves us with: Are you satisfied choosing between Saddam Hussein
and George Who's-Not-Sane? Now I know those "God, guns and guts" Old
Testament Christians might have forgotten, but Jesus did say that
the meek shall inherit the earth. In all undue immodesty, maybe it's
time for us meek folks to boldly step forth and accept our
inheritance.

For just as 2000 years ago Jesus stood up to a class that placed the
rule of gold above the Golden Rule, today we face the modern version
of the Pharisees -- the Phallusees, I think they are called. They
cynically cloak themselves in religious robes, but the only power
they trust is the power of the stick. Well, there's another old
saying: It doesn't matter how big your stick is, if you stick your
stick where it doesn't belong, you're stuck.

Another sign of the up-wising and coming evolution is that people
are growing dissatisfied with the positionality of "my side vs. your
side," and are seeing the whole issue of sides from a new angle:
Maybe we're all on the same side. For example, this argument between
creationism and evolution is just another way for dueling dualities
to steal our energy. I believe in both. I believe the Creator
created us to evolve, otherwise Jesus would have said, "Now don't do
a thing till I return." I have it on good authority that the Creator
is pulling for us: "Come on, you children of God. Time to grow up
and become adults of God instead."

Time to Overgrow the System From the Grassroots Up

The time for revolution and overthrowing has past. Now we need an
evolution where we "overgrow" the current dysfunctional system from
the grassroots up. You are probably familiar with the story of the
Native American grandfather who tells his grandson that there are
two wolves fighting inside all of us: The wolf of fear and anger,
and the wolf of love and peace.
"Which wolf will win?" asks the young boy.
"Whichever one we feed," replies the grandfather.

And so when people ask me to predict what will happen, I tell them
the only thing I can predict with certainty is the uncertainty of
any prediction. The future's just too unpredictable these days. This
is a Universe of infinite possibilities, so it all depends on which
futures we invest in.

There is something far more empowerful than predictions, and that is
Tell-A-Vision. If you're fed up with the current programming, my
advice is turn off your TV and tell a vision instead. That way, we
will have healing and functional visions to step into -- and that
beats what we've been stepping into. So I will tell my vision for
2006: This is the year of the American Evolution, where all those
who prefer the Golden Rule to the rule of gold get past left and
right, and come front and center.

I see Americans of all political stripes, plaids and polka dots (not
to mention solids), choosing to face the music and dance together.
Sure, we'll have to learn some new steps, but it's time for a new
dance - A-Bun-Dance. That is where we get up off our assets, move
our buns, and dance together in rhythm and flow. And what better way
to turn the funk into function, and leave the junk at the junction?

I see us in a new reality show -- Extreme Planetary Makeover --
where everyone can play and everyone can win. Just think. Something
more compelling than reality TV ... it's called reality!

I know, I know. Only a crazy person would dare to propose anything
that sane. But maybe it's time to declare the current
institutionalized insanity illegally insane, and set about building
a sane asylum big enough for all six and a half billion of us. As my
guru Harry Cohen Baba has said, "Life is like a good deli. Even if
something isn't on the menu, if enough people order it they have to
make it." So what kind of new world order are we ordering up? Do we
feed the wolf of fear and buy into the "it's every man for himself"
story? Or do we nourish the wolf of love and evolve into the "we're
all in it together" story?

If we're going to be a Super-Duper Power, we have to be super-duper
powerful in activating the power of love, and cultivating the power
of joy. So laugh more. Why not? We all know there's something funny
going on. The wall of lies cannot withstand the vibration of
laughter. All seriousness aside, only a farce field that combines
truth and laughter can bring down the Irony Curtain once and for all.

Release the old story -- been there, done that -- and speak the new
story into the world. Dare to imagine what we could be doing if we
weren't spending so much of our livelihood on weapons of deadlihood.
Think about it ... think tanks where they think about something
other than tanks. Young people living for their country instead of
dying for it. Health and education fully funded, and the Air Force
having to run a bake sale so they can buy a new bomber.

Can we change the course of history? Can we shift our karma into
surpassing gear? I cannot say for sure, but if we choose to give up
that old Dodge and trade it in for an Evolvo, that's a good first
step. So ... let the Evolution begin. We don't have to wait until
the first Big Shot is fired. If we create a powerful enough field,
the Big Shots will end up firing themselves.

May the FARCE -- as always -- be with us.
