(The following mission reading is only for our intermediate and advanced students. The above short form of our mission is all that is necessary to read if you were just curious about what we are doing.)
Be sure to read this updated mission page before reading the following.
The Full Mission of Universe Spirit
- to help educate the new Planetary Citizens, Universe Citizens and Evolutionaries.
- to help you create today’s new ethical livelihoods and the new sustainable and meaningful lifestyles vital to life success now as well as the planet’s future and future generations.
- to provide the personal support systems necessary to help you turn the new ideas, inspirations and tools, which you discover while exploring on the Three Great Adventures of life into lasting lifestyle success habits and lasting well being.
- to create supportive communities for co-responsible universe citizens. (These are communities of life and spirit where you can comfortably be who you are right now while you are applying new ways to grow a sustainable and meaningful prosperity in all areas of your life.
to provide practical and integral lifestyle practices that empower you as a co-responsible universe citizen to achieve your goals in alignment with:
- the success-proven 13.7 billion year old patterns and principles of progressive universe evolution (the Universe Evolutionary Principles of Life,) and
- the life-affirming wisdom from humanity's spiritual heritages of the last 10,000 years. (The Universe Spirit movement integrates the life-affirming wisdom of humanity's spiritual heritages with the facts of science --- without the organizational and systemic pathologies of previous religions and spiritual forms.)
- to help educate the new universe evolutionary worldview leaders, educators, advocates, and activists about the new lifestyle and business practices and new dialectical thinking for complex systems needed for insuring a viable planetary future for all, and about how to be an informed, capable and responsible universe citizens. (We provide this on and off line education at our Universe College.)
If our mission of an integral marriage of science and spirit resonates with your mind and/or heart, we welcome your help in achieving and spreading it.
If you thought about Universe Spirit as a new Universe Evolutionary Worldview aligned, science and spirituality integrated forerunner for what progressive educational and non-denominational organizations will eventually evolve into, you would have a good starting idea about what and who we are. Paradoxically, it was not really possible for Universe Spirit to come into being before the most recent scientific discoveries in universe cosmology and progressive evolution had occurred as well as the vast cross-pollenization and integration of all of humanity's heritage of life affirming spiritual wisdom and science was taking place over the Internet.
What We Do?
First, we help you to learn about and to draw out your own fullest well being, physical abilities, potential, truth, and highest self-reflective Consciousness (Spirit or Soul), to serve your vital needs, your community, the world and all life in the universe.
Secondly, through this learning and serving process we are actively building a universe science rational and congruent, progressive evolutionary mini-culture where science and spirit-aligned community will support your efforts to live your most life affirming personal goals and values.
Thirdly we help make individuals aware that the progressive evolution of the universe has now reached the amazing point where they too can effectively co-create evolution with evolution! And --- that their acts of conscious evolution can also cause dramatic improvement within their own lives thus creating a near perfect win/win/win scenario!
How We Do it?
We live our mission from an open and integral perspective, which includes all of humanity's science and life-affirming spiritual heritages --- while simultaneously transcending their least life-affirming, outdated or pathological perspectives!
We also do it through:
- a safe, balanced and personalized exploration of humanity's universe science and spirituality knowledge bases in enjoyable, often shared discovery experiences,
- intentional and conscious partnerships for aligned progressive evolution on personal, social, spiritual and physical planetary and even universe levels,
- ongoing community and peer to peer (P2P), support to enhance and habituate desired lifestyle improvements and by,
- using an integral science-probability balanced and spiritual wisdom integrated open source collaborative process to continually improve our evolvability to progressively evolve our community, organization, principles and policies.
On our website or at our local events you can explore the three great life and spiritual adventures into Ultimate Reality in a living, evolving and learning universe and organization! These three great spiritual adventures are the epic discovery and life empowerment adventures of today’s new spiritual heroes, heroines, pioneers and leaders. They are the life and universe discovery adventures which release your greatest potentials and consciousness to serve:
- your most worthwhile goals and life-affirming aspirations,
- the Earth and all it's life,
- the amazing unstoppable power-flow of the progressive directionality of the universe's living evolution and,
- the Ultimate Reality that interconnects the lives and existence of all things.
In this complex, fragmented and challenged rapidly changing 21st century, it is our view that now more than at any other time in history the world needs a new balanced, uniting and universe science grounded perspective and stabilizing new form of evolution spirituality aligned with the progressive life flow of universe evolution!
This new universe of perspective can help each individual reach their full potential and their most life-affirming goals as well as support them in becoming an empowered resource to do their part to help resolve the serious global challenges that we all face as the human collective.
Science and Spirituality Can be Integrated
“No encompassing “ working truth” or truth probability of science can ever really be in conflict with the spiritual laws and truths (beliefs) of the Ultimate Reality that interconnects, unites and includes all things. If there is a real conflict, then it is the perceived spiritual laws and truths that are wrong."
In one form or another, over the ages this spiritual truth testing principle for determining authentic spiritual truth and wise belief has been repeatedly made by the founders, mystics and theologians (like Tomas Aquinas) in most major religious denominations...

- One of the Key Reasons Why Universe Spirit was Formed
An Important Perspective on Spiritual Collaboration and Why a Diversity of Spiritual and Religious Organizations is Important
For those with a spiritual inclination, we are also a Open Source Spirituality where individuals and organizations can share and collaborate upon collective spiritual, scientific and philosophical wisdom. By merging those wisdoms, a higher, and broader spiritualized vision of ourselves and the world will emerge. We trust that these new inner and outer world visions will dramatically enhance the development of effective solutions to individual, social and planetary challenges. We trust it will create a just and sustainable world that works and even thrives for every one now as well as for future generations.
It is not our intent to create or support that there should be only one world religion nor do we believe that such a thing is advisable. We believe that the Ultimate Reality values and delights in the variety of spiritual/religious and personal diversity. Spiritual and personal diversity serves as a vital communication and teaching tool for the many different personality types, individual psycho-social developmental levels and multitude of cultures. We believe in the critical necessity for many unique approaches and without this essential diversity, life and spirituality would be like the sound of an orchestra playing a symphony with only one instrument. It would lack depth, harmony and balance.
We honor the many spiritualities and religions of the world like individual stories and chapters in a book by one great author/source. To the reader each separate story in the book still retains its own indispensable value and uniqueness and can be appreciated individually, or as a valued component of a compilation of stories that reflect an author's history and their ongoing relationship to their body of work.
We believe it is vital that our evolutionary, integral and open meta-spirituality to continue to evolve from and with the ongoing evolution of humankind's collective spiritual and scientific wisdom and the transformative and evolutionary experiences of our members. We hope that when appropriate, other spiritual organizations and individuals will do the same. After all, evolution loves diversity and diversity is essential to sustainability.
Evolution Spirituality and its Appreciation of Other Spiritual and Religious Traditions
Evolution Spirituality recognizes there is a universal and transcendent core found within all of the world's authentic spiritual traditions. It is the Ultimate Reality and source of all reality and its universal qualities.
Evolution Spirituality recognizes all of the world's spiritual traditions contain within them diverse, effective and often complementary processes for achieving spiritual growth through the direct spiritual experience of Ultimate Reality.
The differences in the plurality of processes is an essential and necessary result of our cultural, developmental, learning style and individual personality differences. Ultimate Reality can be encountered, conceptualized, and responded to in numerous and diverse ways. These different perceptions of Ultimate Reality represent both different aspects of Ultimate Reality itself and/or perceptions conditioned by cultural, learning style and individual personality differences.
The most common forms of direct spiritual experience have been described as a numinous experience of the holy or a mystical experience of unity. These forms of core direct spiritual experience have been found to be substantially similar in different cultures and religions. This lends credence to the perspective that universal direct spiritual experiences underlie and interconnect all the major world religions.
Evolution Spirituality holds that by assembling and sharing both the universal and diverse aspects of the processes of direct spiritual experience from both individual experience and the world's spiritual traditions, the tools for supporting these transformational experiences can be made more easily available and understood. Therefore, the process of an individual's own direct spiritual experience can be significantly enhanced.
Evolution Spirituality promotes direct spiritual experience of Ultimate Reality to develop the spiritual awareness that creates the realization of the immanence of the Ultimate Reality in all beings and things of the universe. From this awareness and realization all beings, life and nature becomes a sacred reflection and expression of Ultimate Reality. From this awareness and realization, one's relation to everything in the universe is transformed.
We believe that because of the Infinite nature of Ultimate Reality, the theological systems of the world's spiritual traditions will always provide a unique, but partial view of this infinite reality. Therefore it is important to experience as many of these unique, but partial views of Ultimate Reality to obtain the most complete, universal and complimentary experiences of Ultimate Reality from the world's great spiritualities. - Back to Top -
A Key Reason Why the Evolution Spirituality Meta-Spirituality has Emerged
Evolution Spirituality was evolved into being because it was believed that a new type of Open Source Spirituality, evolutionary meta-spirituality and omni-denominational spiritual organization created in the post-postmodern age with post-postmodern technologies, science, philosophy and information could do most of the above spiritual activities in new and better ways. This would then result in more spiritual and social benefit for both the individual and the world. It was also believed that the older forms of pre-global tribal, ethnic, or nationalistic religions created with pre-modern, traditional and even modern thinking and technologies were inherently either too incomplete or incompatible for effective and efficient problem solving use in these global, post-postmodern times.
The pre-global, pre modern religions also inadvertently and unintentionally help to cause many of our global religious or social problems (such as religious intolerance.) We believe that if a whole new type of post-postmodern, integrative and integral open source spirituality honoring both the highest Essence of all religions and the rationality of our current post-postmodern science would come into being, many of the current religious and social problems would increasingly grow to be less of a problem or cease to exists.
