While the concepts of wholeness and the Four Questions were now embedded in my personal unconscious, it was not clear at the very beginning of my research just how these “tags” would manifest themselves into my consciousness. As it turned out, I provided them little conscious attention while just allowing them to remain below my conscious level and wait for them to manifest themselves naturally.
This is how it happened. I decided to go to the Shenandoah where I visited Charlottesville, Virginia and Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. I would also take an excursion up the mountains via Skyline Drive.
In my active imagination, the words written by Jefferson in our Declaration of Independence emerged and became quite prominent.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, and that among them were life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
What was strongly resonating with me here was:
- That from a soulfully inspired perspective of the collective unconscious, the word “among” was not intended to be restricted to just three rights. But that additional basic or inalienable rights would emerge and become manifest.
- That these inalienable rights were indeed gifts of unconditional love being offered by Creator God to the emerging human condition.
It was as if the concepts of wholeness and the Four Questions would now become operative in my unconscious and connects with the Jeffersonian triad and unpack an even deeper perception of and detail to our emerging giftedness.
A more complete development of the modes within Creation would become a reality for me.
Yes, the gift of physical ENERGY would precede all modes of giftedness. Without physical energy there would be nothing to sustain LIFE energy.
But the gifts of chemical energy and DNA or an ordering or ORDER energy would also precede LIFE.
Now the gift of LIFE itself would become a reality.
Following the reality of individual life, such as in the story about Adam in the Book of Genesis, there emerged a need for a mate for Adam and the gift of family or COMMUNITY energy was born.
Now there emerged this physical four-dimensional manifold: ENERGY, ORDER, LIFE, and COMMUNITY.
Indeed, each modality is energy.
The next gift in the emerging chain was LIBERTY. Liberty would lead to a further definition of sub-modes within the very general mode of PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. While pursuit of happiness had come to traditionally mean in societies that one can do whatever one pleases, it was becoming clearer that as we were making changes, indeed, a paradigm shift in our world views of reality, a merger of some deeper values such as the interaction of awareness, authenticity, unity, and wisdom needed to be included in any chain of giftedness. Otherwise, mankind would continue to be both personally and universally on journeys of mass dysfunction.
AWARENESS followed the modality of LIBERTY.
AUTHENTICITY followed the modality of AWARENESS.
ARTICULATION followed the modality of AUTHENTICITY.
Now there emerged the second four-dimensional manifold: LIBERTY, AWARENESS, AUTHENTICITY, and ARTICULATION.
Again, each of these modalities is energy.
With the emergence of the eighth modality, ARTICULATION, I was almost expecting the emerging imagery to stop. But it did not stop. Additional modalities would continue to emerge and manifest themselves in my consciousness. These included in their order of emergence:
The modality UNITY followed ANTICIPATION.
The modality VISION followed UNITY.
The modality WISDOM followed VISION.
The modality CREATIVITY followed WISDOM.
Now there emerged the third four-dimensional manifold: UNITY, VISION, WISDOM, and CREATIVITY.
Three sets with a four-dimensional manifold each denoting a total of twelve modalities offers a deeper and more complete definition of Creator God’s unconditional love and giftedness for mankind. Now a Circle of Wholeness emerges and connects each of these Twelve Modalities in a unified presentation of reality. Later, I would publish a summary paper on these concepts entitled, The Unitas Hypothesis.
It was interesting for me to perceive that each of these modalities which, individually represented energy and were loving gifts from Creator God, there began a newer and much broader resonance for me as to the authentic nature of Creator God. It was becoming very clear to me that not only was Creator God love but energy as well.
While still on top of the mountains in the Shenandoah, I was led to find the meaning of the name “Shenandoah.” Twenty-five years ago there was no internet so my journey took me to the local library in Charlottesville. Here, the librarian took me to the stacks and pulled out a book entitled, “Daughter of the Stars.” I sat down at a table and to my amazement, as I opened the first page, there was a description that the name “Shenandoah” was the name of a Native American princess “Clear-Eyed Daughter of the Stars.”
