Lectures for the 2013 Cruise
Keynote: The Spiral of Life
Within the infinite ocean of the universe, a spiral of life has arisen, culminating in human beings. This class will explore the origin and development of the cosmos, humanity’s biological and spiritual evolution, and the seven levels of consciousness that unfold naturally as we return to God or One Infinity.
Lecture 1: Food and Spiritual Development
Food creates body, mind, and spirit. Eating is the transformation of consciousness from the mineral, vegetal, and animal worlds to that of human beings. The secret for realizing health and happiness, freedom and wisdom, is in front of us, day by day, in every dish we consume. How to choose food, how to prepare meals, and how to absorb and harmonize with our natural environment through food are keys to humanity’s personal and spiritual development.
Lecture 2: One Peaceful World
Modern humanity is facing a biological and spiritual crisis. The most critical problem confronting us today is not geopolitical, economic, religious, or ideological. It is the question of whether we can continue to survive and develop on this beautiful planet and maintain our human quality in the face of overwhelming health and environmental challenges. This lecture will explore how the natural, organic foods movement, complementary and alternative medicine, the peaceful transmutation of elements, and the development of a planetary commonwealth will peacefully unify the world and lead to the transition from homo sapiens to homo pacificus and homo spiritus.
