Manifesto of the Sovereign Integral
Manifesto of the Sovereign Integral
- There is no space more sacred or powerful than another.
- There is no being more spiritual than another.
- There is no thing more divine than another.
- There is no tool or technique that accelerates the unfoldment of consciousness.
- There is no truth that can be written, spoken, or thought unless it is conceived and expressed through the Language of Unity.
- First Source transcends Wholeness.
- All the fragments of philosophy, science, and religion, even when unified, represent but a fractional picture of reality.
- The mysteries of your world will never be understood through inquiries that are based in the language of the mind.
- Perfection is a concept of wholeness misunderstood.
- The conditions of peace, beauty, love, and security are merely signposts to wholeness, as are their counterparts.
- To live in the Wholeness Perspective is to value all things as they are and to bear witness to the unity of their expression.
- No being requires knowledge other than their unique Wholeness Perspective.
- There is no hierarchy. There is only One That Is All.
- There is no model of existence outside of the model of self-creation.
- True Freedom is access to First Source.
- A being cannot get closer to First Source than in the existence of a moment.
- The sovereign being and First Source are reality.
- Having a physical body does not limit you, anymore than having legs on an eagle prevents it from flying.
- All conditions of existence are facets of the one condition of the reality of unlimited self-creation.
- There is no pathway to First Source.
- Unfoldment, evolution, growth/decay cycles and transformation are all bound to the same premise of separation in linear time.
- The hidden harmony is found with joy, while the obvious brings indifference.
- The farther you enter into the Truth the deeper your conviction for truth must be.
- There is understanding of the world precisely to the degree that there is understanding of the Self.
Commentary on the Manifesto of the Sovereign Integral
The Sovereign Integral is the transparent Being of expansion,
uniquely fit for the era in which we have begun to enter.
Instead of commenting on the twenty-four bulleted items in their order within the manifesto, we are going to examine them according to the themes they present.
The groupings I have created are only one example of how the statements of the manifesto can be interpreted. You may see these arrangements differently, which is fine because each of us can only seek the truth from the standpoint of our own experiences and views of the world. Nevertheless, the more we attempt to live according to the manifesto and the other characteristics of the Sovereign Integral, the clearer our understanding of the statements will be because they are inherent to the Sovereign Integral itself.
With this in mind, I encourage you to study them and formulate your own understanding of their meanings and how they may apply to your everyday life. After all, the down pouring of insights that we all experience from our exposure to the teachings of Lyricus contribute to the collective understanding of these materials for others, and thereby contribute to the Genetic Mind— the collective consciousness of humankind.
If we are going to work toward establishing ourselves in the awareness and behaviors of the Sovereign Integral, then we will be well served by reflecting on their meanings. Guidance and facilitation have their place in psycho-spiritual study and practice, but in the end, each individual is left with their own actions, feelings, and ideas. The contents of consciousness, stored in the mind and accessed through the brain, represent our experiences in the world around us. Consequently, these emotional reactions and stored memories manifest and form our individual personalities. This being so, the Human Instrument becomes the vehicle for a persona largely constructed from our relationships with our parents, extended families, friends, teachers, and co-workers. In most cases, until we turn within to examine our egoic tendencies, beliefs, prejudices, and stances relative to the world around us, we will have difficulty comprehending the nature of the Sovereign Integral, not to mention the other five components, including the Spirit Intelligence of First Source, the Remnant Imprint, the Wholeness Navigator, the Phantom Core, and the Human Instrument.
As we turn within, reflecting on our subjective lives, we will likely encounter a vivid contrast between the inner world of the Sovereign Integral and the inner world of the ego with its well-established thoughtforms, beliefs, and attitudes generated from contact with the objective, outer world. Therefore, an examination of the twenty-four points of the Manifesto offers another opportunity (in addition to the other WingMakers/Lyricus resources) to expand our awareness to incorporate the Sovereign Integral’s wider and deeper awareness into our everyday consciousness. The outcome of our efforts ultimately shifts from taking on the qualities of the Sovereign Integral to actually becoming the Sovereign Integral.
At this point, after reading the Manifesto, you may be wondering how mere words on a page can put you in touch with such an abstract concept as the Sovereign Integral. This is a good question, especially when we realize that words and language are double-edged swords in that they can clarify as well as mask the many abstractions of psychology and spirituality. For some insight into this point is the following quotation:
“The substance of your design is awakened with the words that form the concepts of your enlarged self-image. And these words are not merely spoken, but they are seen, felt, and heard as well. They lead you to the tone of equality and the perception of wholeness. Allow these words to wash over you like a gentle wave that brings you buoyancy and movement. It will sweep you to a new shore, and it is there that you will begin to uncover your true nature and purpose.”
– The Blueprint of Exploration, p. 7.
This passage strongly suggests that words can fulfill a purpose beyond that of the clarifying or masking comprehension and understanding. The extract implies that words can be encoded in such a way as to direct the influences of the higher frequencies, vibrations, or tones emanating from the level of the Sovereign Integral. In other words, the statements in the Manifesto may very well be coded in a fashion similar to the paintings, poetry, music, and philosophy being brought forth by James.
