Working with Oneness

Front Cover
The Golden Sufi Center, 2002 - Religion - 155 pages
Working with Oneness brings mysticism into the center of the marketplace -- into the world of business and technology -- and shows how we can work with it in everyday life. Humanity has been given access to the secrets of oneness, but we need to learn how to work with them. The dynamic energy of oneness has the potential to heal the planet and revolutionize life more than we can imagine, but it requires our individual participation and awareness to become fully alive.

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee provides a blueprint for working consciously with this energy. He stresses the need to change from hierarchical, patriarchal power structures to organic patterns that allow for the free flow of energy and ideas. The Internet already provides a model for a non-hierarchical structure, and the explosive growth of the Web shows the potency of this model. It portrays a unified network that has the potential for global consciousness. We need to understand the dynamics of oneness that gave birth to this model, and how it can function on all levels. On a physical level it can enable goods to flow directly to where they are needed. On the level of human consciousness it points to an interconnectivity of consciousness as the next step in our development.

Working with Oneness discusses a number of additional important topics, including: the changing energy structure of the planet; the power of individual consciousness; the danger of the desire for spiritual security; the return of joy to everyday life; the awakening of the heart of the world; a new understanding of magic; the use of the imagination; and mystical participation in life with the energy of oneness.

Working with Oneness shows how to participatein life free of the patterns of the past, so that the divine can come alive in every moment of every day.
