Behind the Scenes on Planet Earth with Gordon Davidson

Feb 27, 2015 09:12AM ● By Lee Walker

Gordon Asher Davidson, the author of The Transfiguration of Our World: How a Light Alliance is Transforming Darkness and Creating a New Earth, will lead a talk at 7 p.m., March 13, at Unity Church of Bonita, and a daylong seminar from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 14, at the Bonita Shores Club. Davidson, the founding director of the Social Investment Forum, has offered clients deep spiritual guidance and transformational consulting for more than 20 years. He co-founded the Center for Visionary Leadership with his wife, Corinne McLaughlin, with whom he also co-authored two books, Practical Visionary and Spiritual Politics.

Natural Awakenings asked Davidson about his views on light, darkness and the unfolding of Earth and humanity.

What prompted you to explore the spiritual dimensions of light and darkness?
Several very powerful experiences at a young age opened the door for me into beautiful realms of light. As a result, I experienced how we are all interconnected and ultimately one with all the life around us. I have a lifelong interest in and passion for spiritual questions regarding why we are here, what happens to us when we die and how we can help each other become more enlightened human beings. I’ve also explored many different spiritual traditions and had a consistent, deep meditative practice for most of my life, which ultimately led me to contact with higher spiritual beings.

What can you tell us about the forces of light and darkness throughout history?
Earth was created to be a beautiful, garden planet, with all of its abundance available to nurture the evolution of life. Throughout history, this has been the foundation of teachings by spiritual masters of all traditions. Every spiritual master has offered lighted teachings encouraging humanity to make a free choice to follow the ways of love and service, which brings harmony and joy, as well as spiritual and material fulfillment. However, humanity’s ability to choose either the way of light, love and the good of all or the way of darkness, selfishness and control allows every individual to experience the karma of his or her choices and learn why the higher spiritual path is best. Thus, we have had the struggle between light and darkness for a very long time.

How is a higher plan for Earth unfolding?
Earth and humanity are intended to evolve into a lighted civilization where the energetic frequencies of love, sharing and higher purpose are the organizing principles. This requires a complete reorganization of the planet, which is occurring steadily as human beings are awakening and demanding a more enlightened political, economic and social order.

The revelation of corruption and wrongdoing in many institutions is creating transformation with major political and economic reforms, and reorganization is steadily being implemented behind the scenes. This will eventually emerge into the full light of human understanding.

What are the most useful things we each can do to assist this unfolding process?
We can hold this higher plan in our consciousness every day, seeing it fully realized on Earth. We can meditate individually or in groups and direct lighted ideas and vision for humanity’s positive future into the mental field of humanity. We can share these ideas with whomever might be open to them.

We can raise our vibrational frequency to live in a continuous state of love and joyful expectancy as much as possible, and we can support lighted individuals and groups to take positions of leadership to guide and transform world systems.

It is also important to provide practical assistance to those in the greatest need in the world. We need to change the world atmosphere from fear and insecurity to relaxed goodwill, as well as to ensure the world’s people that they will be safe, respected and provided for, so they can build creative, joyful lives.
