Musings on My Mission
All I want to do is to make the world a better place.
I was gifted with a good mind, and I bet it was my daddy asking about the other two points when I’d come home with a 98 that got me my proclivity for perfection.
Another thing I’ve been blessed with is comfort. Since I love sugar and butter and I think of exercise as a dirty word, without deserving it I’ve always been healthy. And, I’ve never struggled with money, either from not having enough or from having so much that life is about minding it. The universe has taken care of me. All I’ve had to do was come up with ideas.
In the first third of my life, I did well at traditional things. I was a star at New York University (Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude), a cooking fool (I wrote The Anybody Can Make It, Everybody Will Love It Cookbook), a post-impressionist painter (I had a one-woman show), a wife of a major comedy writer, a mom of three girls, and a working actress. In 1970, after being Mrs. Him for 14 years, I got unmarried and started my second life, looking for me.
I’d had babies instead of social conscience in the ‘60s, but in the ‘70s, when all of us were in consciousness kindergarten and I was out of my marriage, I got steeped in the Human Potential Movement where I traveled on mind-expanding avenues and landed in whatever gave rise to everything. Then, I used my new smarts producing projects and events where people chewed on how it will be when human beings care about each other as much as they care about themselves.
I made up games for grownup children, from dealing with the new technologies of transformation that were part of the Association of Humanistic Psychology, to my Challenge for Champions “happenings” where people of the new persuasion got to socialize, to salons at my home where speakers told us what life’s all about, to taking to the streets for guerilla theater. These were projects and events where self-aware individuals had opportunities to meet and to further the consciousness shift that was sweeping through humanity. Then, I was “discovered” and I was primed for speaking on the guru circuit by 36 episodes of The Cosmic Fuel Pump that were on a local TV station.
Nineteen years into that rabble rousing, I got another gift when I grabbed my pen every morning for a few months to write what a voice that called itself the Intelligence had to say. I put it in a booklet and Inside the Intelligence: Mapping the Path to Oneness has been a guide for me ever since, wising me up about how to create a healing rather than a hurting world. In 1989, when I put up my first website, I tuned into the Intelligence and this is what it said:
There is a logic to human existence. This is an intelligence speaking. It is the wisdom of the circle.
Dialogue is the necessary activity now to save the earth. Everyone sees glimmers of a peril looming; all must attend. Reordering must come. It will not result from legislation or from mediating between warring factions. Any imposition will just create more war. No, this needs to BE an otherness that births inside the womb of now.
This is the voice of humanity’s soul. Snap to attention. Come off the meditation cushion. The family needs to forge. The mother is overblown with pregnancy. A creature must emerge.
We have stripped ourselves, prayed ourselves, and meditated ourselves into readiness for evolving together. Who knows where we can go? Into other dimensions, or other solar systems, or able to read each other’s minds? What are glimmers in our eyes perhaps can ignite, but first oneness has to be our way. Recognizing Spirit as what we are expressing and not what we are looking for is the alchemy that transforms. I am devoted to helping that occur.
On my homepage, www.SUESpeaks.org, you’ll see my podcast, Searching for Unity in Everything, where I talk to thought leaders about what they would do if they ruled the world. And, you’ll also see how I’ve been adding good cheer to people’s lives at this challenging time by supplying A DELIGHT A DAY.
Actually, nothing makes me happier than making other people happy, so come along and join me on my wild ride to the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
I pledge allegiance to myself,
Which is also all of you
And to the grand idea
Of which we are all a part,
With truth as reality for all.
