Welcome to our new ONE VISION site
When Jan and I first came together in 1994, we both had the idea of founding a community of like-minded people. But property costs money, and at that time we had precious little.
Jan had founded a small spiritual group in Hampshire, and whilst preparing to give a talk, I happened to look up the word "community" in the dictionary. I was surprised by what I read.
"A group of people bound together by a common ideal or purpose". No mention of bricks and mortar anywhere !
And so the idea of a virtual community was born. We realised that physical location was unimportant providing that strong communication links were established. But what would that common ideal or purpose be ??
Paradoxically there were actually two visions :
A world in which everyone does their best, at what they love doing most, for the benefit of all, with no thought of reward, other than the sheer joy of giving.
A world in which everyone is free to explore, discover and express their own unique spirituality, in an atmosphere of unconditional love and total acceptance.
Ideas are magnetic, and attract like energy to them. In Conversations With God II we read :-
"Your world, and the condition it is in, is a reflection of the total, combined consciousness of everyone living there ……
Group consciousness is something that is not widely understood - yet it is extremely powerful and can, if you are not careful, often overcome individual consciousness. You must always, therefore, endeavour to create group consciousness wherever you go, and with whatever you do, if you wish your larger life experience on the planet to be harmonious.
If you are in a group whose consciousness does not reflect your own , and you are unable at this time to effectively alter the group consciousness, it is wise to leave the group, or the group could lead you. It will go where it wants to go, regardless of where you want to go.
If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be drawn to you."
Can we as individuals influence that change ? I believe that we can. In fact I believe that we cannot avoid being part of that change. Just by being here we cannot help but play our part. What we can do is choose what influence we have.
Einstein wrote that we cannot solve the problems of the world whilst we remain at the level of consciousness we were at when we created them.
This website has been created for just two people – me and you …
Me, because I need to bring together all the ideas that have been shared with me over the past 20 years, and so that I can start working on the only person I can change, as Michael Jackson wrote, the man in the mirror.
You, because I believe that your arrival here was no accident. Maybe you will find a clue or two that will help you on your journey, or perhaps you might have some ideas to share with me that will help me on mine.
This looks set to be an interesting ride. Maybe we could take that ride together for a while ?
