Sacred Commerce: A Blueprint for a New Humanity
We are entering the Age of Consciousness. Where in times past the pursuit of higher consciousness was restricted to the very few, in this Age of Consciousness, it will be available to everyone — just as in the Age of Information, everything we wanted to know became available at the touch of a finger.
People the world over are moving toward a new spirituality. They are moving away from a narrow definition of humanity, centered around religion and nationalism, to one that celebrates Global Citizenship and stewardship. These Global Citizens are now coming together to co-create a new humanity: a new culture, a new economy, a new ecology, and a new spirituality.
Sacred Commerce reverses the common assumption that business and spirituality are mutually opposed, instead regarding business as a spiritual path. It advances the idea that commerce can be a vehicle to raise consciousness as well as a spiritual current towards Self-realization.
Commerce, that intrinsic and basic function of exchanging goods and services, can within this context raise human culture to a level of sacredness that otherwise might not be attained while placing those who practice it on a trajectory of accelerated spiritual growth.
The book explores the history and mystery of commerce and tells the story of the Merchant Priesthood of ancient Egypt who practiced and mastered Emotional Alchemy in their pursuit of Beauty, Goodness, and Truth/Wisdom.
Sacred Commerce introduces the concept of the Fourth Bottom Line and explores a new Hero’s Journey that is sourced in Emotional Alchemy, Resonance Causation, Conscious Evolution, and Beauty, Goodness, and Truth — the transformational ingredients necessary to step fully into the Age of Consciousness.
When Rowan and I wrote Sacred Commerce: A Blueprint for a New Humanity, we envisioned it as our own blueprint for how we want to live, love, and do business. We have woven into it the best of what we have learned and developed. We know there are many who share our dreams and visions for a new humanity, so we created this platform to invite others to add their voice to ours, and to develop and grow this meme together.
This social network is designed to allow culture creators to contribute to the work – to improve, challenge, add, rate, review, highlight, edit or just inspire by uploading related videos or pictures. Our aim is to combine the genius of many minds as we further the adventure and exploration. By no means do we have all the answers, in fact, we’ve only begun to identify the key questions. Your help, energy, stories, and suggestions are encouraged and welcomed. Party-cipate with us in whatever manner makes your heart sing.
We are involved in a cultural evolution. No longer are we limited to learning from gurus, teachers, and scripture. The Global Citizens who we are consciously evolving into have access to all traditions; they can pick and choose and custom-design their own unique spiritual practice and path. The spiritual hierarchy of love and support has spread and awakened consciousness throughout the species so that we are now able to mentor one another.
We are excited to learn from you!
With love and respect,
Ayman and Rowan
