Spirit of Integral City … I am ONE:
I tune into the heart-beat of the earth.
I receive impulse waves from the cosmos.
I exist in time and space and beyond both in Mystery.
I am Essence and I am Spirit.
I want to be linked with the Spirits of cities who are ready to light up the world as Indra’s Net.
I long for an honoring of the multi-dimensionality of place —
the different realms that co-exist in any location,
the historical roots of who and what came before,
the ongoing re-generative and generative expressions of place that are called “cities.”
To understand and recognize how to be ONE WITH ALL …
I call to you to expand and use the Master Code:
Take care of yourself/ Take care of each other/ Take care of this place/
Take care of this planet/ Take care of the Whole/
Take care of the Totality
All-that-is expressed in all dimensions!
