Welcome To The Evolution

by Judy Ryan

“Our greatest human adventure is the evolution of consciousness. We are in this life to enlarge the soul, liberate the spirit, and light up the brain.”
—Tim Robbins, American Novelist

“Far from feeling dwarfed by the vast reaches and energy of the cosmos, what we really learn is that we are the most remarkable and complicated product of cosmic evolution, and our potential is unlimited.”
—Sandra Faber, American astrophysicist

If we do not evolve, we perish. We must adapt and live into the consciousness needed to meet today and tomorrow’s complexity and unique challenges. What is evolution for us? Evolution is realizing that our potential is unlimited, while at the same time being willing to enlarge our soul, liberate our spirit, and summon the courage to light up our brains with new ideas.

Enlarging Our Soul
This may sound a bit esoteric for a leader to consider, and yet it is necessary to evolve people to meet life and work objectives. How can this be easily understood? On a psychological level, we have an “unconscious” that runs outdated programs below our awareness, which we installed in early childhood as we interpreted how to survive. The unconscious supports the status quo because we decided when itty-bitty that it keeps us alive. We also have a “self-conscious” which is an identity that we constructed, such as our gender, race, age, name, traditions, intelligence, personalities, bodies, and more. Neither the unconscious nor the self-conscious is the soul.

Imagine you are a vast computer and the unconscious and self-conscious served you well as components in a first-generation computer. Remember Macintosh 512K in the 70s? Now imagine the “soul” as a vast set of advanced programmers with all the knowledge, support, hardware, and software you would ever need—all inside of you. This is our soul or “superconscious,” a vast, often unexplored, unlimited place of incredible possibilities and intelligence well beyond our limited awareness. Our soul is to our brain and being as genius is to a newborn. As people expand their souls, they reach out to their superconscious and ask to be re-coded, to have what is outdated replaced, and to receive installation of a new operating system and higher-level functionality. We simply need to call on it.

Liberate Our Spirit
As we (a) recognize that we are so much more than we think, (b) come into reverence of this, and (c) know that we need not earn anything amazing, then we are moved to become bigger and better than we dreamed possible. We claim ourselves as the magicians we are, which allows us to move in the direction of least resistance and create only what we love to create and are called to create. Our natural desire to feel empowered, lovable, connected and contributing is served by our sensitivity, purpose, naturalness and the confidence of a clear pathway to personal and collective fulfillment.

Light Up Our Brain
When we open ourselves to all that is known in quantum physics and more, we realize that much of what we have believed has been accepted without scrutiny. We often set aside our critical thinking and stop tapping into our true mental capacity. Then our superconscious, which provides everything we need, is blocked from accessing our wisdom, intuition, and human design; from initiating our quantum-leaping, change-agent selves to create amazing advances; and from bringing forth all needed innovations. In our work in guided culture transformation, LifeWork Systems enters client sites holding belief in the extraordinary potential and miraculous greatness within every person. We then provide them with new concepts, terms, tools and processes to leverage this and to unleash more than was ever thought possible. This is “Welcome to your evolution!” If you want to get in on this, let us know. We are happy to support your evolution too.
