Default The new spiritual awakening... and poly?

This was inspired by Manno's post Paradigm Shift to Polyamory. This is what I thought that post was going to be about:

Whether or not people are aware of it, there is a significant paradigm shift occurring on this planet right now. I am feeling it in unusual ways. Synchronicities, parallel themes, people around me adopting a different language, etc.

I feel in my heart that we as a species are coming to a turning point in evolution. Recognizing the bond we all share, just beginning to acknowledge the tip of the mysterious iceberg we call our Universe....

And I wonder how polyamory may fit into this. Poly has been around for centuries, so perhaps not. It just seems to me that being open to loving many is congruent with being open to recognizing that we're all "ONE".

My airy-faerie rant for the morning.

A new consciousness can't get here fast enough.

I have seen glimpses of it: large gatherings of folks who feel free to be themselves, mindful of the interconnected web of life around them and respectful of the individual entities therein.

I'm seeing it too.

Lately, it's been everyone experiencing synchronistically that they can no longer exist under the same rules anymore. What needs changing is going to come to a head right now.

I have felt it too... people doing stuff they swore they would never do... it makes me have so much hope for our planet and the inhabitants of it... I just wish more people would get on board with making this world a whole world of huge consciousness. Not in terms of religion, but of being aware of everything on a worldly level.

Yes, we often comment on it. There are so many changes happening, and in so many different areas of society.

In relation to the OP, poly does seem to be a part of this transformation. Who knows what role it will take in the coming years?

Perhaps it will eventually replace traditional old-world polygamy in some cultures...

This is an old thread but being new here and exploring this wonderful forum I would like to comment.

For some time now I too have felt that there is a "shift" happening. Significant to me personally, the awareness that has enveloped me has brought me to where I am now. Difficult to express in most circles is the fact that this inhibited woman developed into a sexually expressive woman as my relationship to my heavenly Father developed true intimacy. Never in a million years did I feel it possible or necessary to "talk" to Him about my sexuality and my feelings concerning that aspect of my life. Who prays during sex? Sadly, not many have even thought of the idea or if they have it was considered wrong. My relationship with Him, the ability to express all of my hurts, fears and desires & recieving His immense love & thoughts about me brought me to polyamory. Mind you, I was never aware that there was such a word or way of life. I only knew about polygamy. My knowledge of polygamy was limited to the oppression and control of women of which left a bad taste in my mouth.

Outside of myself and in my circle of influence, I have observed minds becoming open, an external awareness of others and the epiphanies of our connectedness they experience. I've seen church elders finally accept exciting new ways of worship, breaking away from the dogma of tradition. I could go on forever...

It's beautiful and exciting to observe in others and experience ourselves. It gives me hope in my heart that one day we can all, justbeloving.

I heard this recently. "Humans are the universe becoming aware of itself."

WOW!! Brilliant observation! The thought that came to me when I read that is... that the universe expressed itself through the creation of humans ... "humans are the universe becoming aware of itself"... would be like coming full circle wouldnt it?

Just a thought, sometimes there is no real logic behind them, but thats what makes me who I am

That is what has brought me here. I have had my spiritual awakening and was wondering how it will manifest in my love life. one of the teacher's I like Adyashanti says relationships will change from being about sex to being about oneness. So I have started to study tantric sex as I'm very interested in energy and how wonderful this oneness experience is and how to bring it into my sex life. Seems like many men are scared of me right about now. lol There is a large group of oneness blessors collecting more and more as 2012 approaches. you can google oneness blessing or Deeksha if you are interested in the movement spearheaded by Sri Amma Baghavan and the oneness university in India. Serious movement occurring but more needs to help usher in 2012. I can see poly becoming more and more normal at least for me.
