We continue the presentation of Larry’s proposals for a participatory integrative spiritual approach.
Creating a Global Spiritual Commons and its Relationship to the Open Source Spirituality Process
“A Global Spiritual Commons is defined as a common and free access spiritual wisdom resource, cyber hub and network created and expanded by any and all individuals or organizations who wish to share their spiritual wisdom and experience in an open source collaboration and co-creation. The Open Source Integral Spirituality process and spiritual and administrative principles listed below this section facilitate the expansion, maintenance and the free and open use of the Global Spiritual Commons.
What is most exciting about the results of these online and offline open source integral spirituality collaborations is that they not only expand the Global Spiritual Commons, but they also create a place where you will find both a place and process where everyone can share in the spiritual wisdom from humanityâ€™s vast heritage or add and share the wisdom from their own spirituality or personal experience to help emerge new visions and perspectives of the Divine. The global spiritual commons is becoming humanityâ€™s vast central knowledge base of all spiritual wisdom, which can be more fully collected, organized and, freely distributed through multiple system and multiple channel delivery systems. The multiple delivery systems and channels will specifically adapt this continuously expanding spiritual knowledge base for more effective and easier user assimilation by tailoring the presentation of this wisdom specifically to an individualâ€™s unique learning style, personality, current psychological development level, culture or other important isms.
In the dynamic, integrally-informed evolutionary synthesis process of the co-creative assembly and inclusion of all of humankindâ€™s spiritual wisdom in this global spiritual commons, there is a natural pruning that occurs resulting in the emergence of more useful and/or appropriate spiritual wisdom. In some cases this newly emerged wisdom will transcend earlier spiritual wisdom in its universality, inclusiveness, meanings, values, or in the way that it better integrates all spiritual and physical life wisdom into more useful maps and metaphors for not only the co-creators and participants in the global spiritual commons, but for all of humankind. In the following Principles for Building an Open Source Integral Spirituality section much more will be said to help define what is the Global Spiritual Commons, what it specifically does and what are the Open Source Integral Spirituality processes and principles.”
