Andrew Harvey, Sacred Activism ~ Author, Religious Scholar and Mystic

What is it to be surrendered? To many people (especially in the political sphere) this is a contradiction in terms, how can you be endeavouring to change something yet be surrendered?

Yet, from a Gandhian perspective, being surrendered to the greater good, to doing everything to benefit the greater whole is in fact the coming paradigm that we are entering.

Gandhi expressed it this way. ‘I live in the centre of a circle that has no circumference.

Its called selfless action that transcends service to self.

How do we go about surrendering to a ‘greater power than the self?

Spending ones total life devoted to good, to the community at large and society as a whole.

What are the drivers of this? Or, what is it that pulls one to such continuous, compelling actions?

These are some of the subject matter that Andrew talks to in this riveting and captivating interview.

What is this power that is called God? How is God defined? What is the mystical and powerful force that takes over and activates our passion to create positive change that benefits our society and species?

How do we come 'into a union' with the magnificence of the mystical? How does this transcendence translate into action?

From awakening to that which is beyond consensus reality, to how do we awaken? What are the drivers? How are we an instrument for the divine to make itself known?

We are all here to become awake! When we are all awake - a whole new possibility springs into being … the flowering of consciousness.

In the world of today where daily through contaminated media be it local and global we find ourselves on the back foot as ecological, economic and societal dysfunction gain the world headlines. This is overwhelming so many throughout the community and our society, yet can we find within us the passion and the power to light up our chest cavity and advance goodwill in action and in Gandhis words, be the change we wish to see in the world?

Where does grace come into this? Is it by the letting go of all our ‘accumulated stuff that this clears ‘our field to allow the presence of a mystical experience to reconnect us with the divine?

And what is the divine feminine? Both transcendent and imminent. How come we have been under the influence of a patriarchal system, when all beings are born of a mother? That right up until today our cosmology has all male deities in our localised solar system except for Venus, and now after a bitter battle, Gaia has regained her ancient Greek name for (our) Mother Earth.

That the angelic kingdom has so very few female angels too? Note that in todays patriarchal world, we are being driven by conquest and force, right off the cliff … which Andrews calls a psychotic expression because mindless extraction and exploitation that drives the commercial imperative sees our planet as a lifeless thing. To continue to dissociate and deplete our planet will inevitable take us over the edge …

With the weather patterns becoming hysterical … what are we to make of it all?

Covering the divine marriage of male and female, masculine and feminine, light and dark coming together in the one and with the Masculine having to come into balance with the Feminine. If we dont, then our future will inevitable arrrive, to where such patriarchal domination has unrelentingly driven us?

Also mentioned, that we are all an extension of the one, from Namaste the Hindu greeting and ‘farewell I honour the light behind your eyes I honour the (Atman) God within you.' To us treating all humans as a brother or sister, that all animals are an extension of the divine, or God experiencing what it is to live in a particular animal body or configuration to realise what it is like to live at that level of frequency.

To the fact that 57 billion animals a year are farmed to destruction to feed the human race with such a vast number undergoing unconscious methods of killing. Plus, huge amounts of laboratories and habitat destruction and that we are creating a tsunami of black karma ….

Also commented on, is Findhorn and the communities communication with the non physical counterpart of trees, shrubs plants and flowers, plus the devic energies that were/are present. How does the human race shrug this all off and forget the dispensation that was offered to us?

We need passion like oxygen … as oxygen fires up the flame in a world suffering from a famine of real PASSION. So, how do we refashion the world?

Passionate love in action … and the incidence of ecstatic passion erupting in our life, connects us all to the great mystery that surrounds us and that if the world and the cosmos that totally surrounds us is magic … what does this make us?

The importance of having the courage to stand up for those who have no voice, the poor, the unwell, the animals and all biota.

Sacred activism and trusting in a higher knowing go hand in hand with living in the ever present now.

An exceptionally spellbinding interview that is very engrossing from start to finish, a must for those who are here to bring about a better world, be it locally or globally.

This is a thriller.
