Marc Gafni on Evolutionary Unique Self & the Unique Self Symphony (Part 18)

Continued from part 17.

Actually, there’s enormous ground for hope. This is not a mindless sense of techno-optimism, which blithely ignores reality. It is the awakening of our deepest nature as Outrageous Lovers expressing through us the unique creativity that is our most essential self. It is true that we have limited resources, there are limited resources, but there’s infinite resourcefulness. Infinite resourcefulness is grounded in Source. To live as Source is to live from your Unique Self. Unique Self as the womb of evolutionary creativity is the ground of hope and optimism.

Creativity is the most natural expression of selfhood in the world. What specialization ultimately means is that you specialize as you. It is about reclaiming your own innate specialness. Specialness not at the level of ego which is comparative. “I am more special than you” which has an edge of aggression and even violence underneath it. But rather specialness at the level of Unique Self which is your essential nature. “I am special and from the place of my specialness I honor and delight in your specialness.” Your specialization is God having a Lori experience. God having a Jeff experience. No one can do Jeff like Jeff can. And if Jeff’s willing to have a Jeff experience – if he’s willing to move beyond the fear, and to step up – if Jeff is willing to step out of limitation, and live the full, infinite, creative glory of Jeff-ness, then there’s going to be a unique gift emerging from Jeff’s life that’s going to galvanize Terry. Because when Terry meets Jeff in the full awake aliveness of his Evolutionary Unique Self something’s going to be born from that meeting. Terry’s going to be moved and awakened, because when authentic Unique Self encounters occur, in a place beyond the politics of the contracted ego self, evolution happens. The reason reality occurs in this way is because we each have a piece of each other’s story. We each have a piece of each other’s creativity. When we meet as creative artists in the Evolutionary Unique Self Symphony, an Evolutionary We Space is formed.

The cultural goal of Evolutionary We Space is no less than the evolution of the good, the true and the beautiful. That is the evolution of consciousness. The inside of consciousness is love itself. To foster Evolutionary We Space through the coming together of Evolutionary Unique Selves is to participate in the evolution of love. It’s the ability to address poverty; the ability to ensure that there is not a child on this Earth who doesn’t have food. It is to guarantee that there is no youngster who doesn’t have full access to education. It’s the ability to honor the unique dignity and story of every unique human being. It is to know that every story deserves to be lived and heard, and received, and told, and engaged. That’s a full possibility – if we but live from the consciousness of Unique Self and commit the outrageous acts of love that are the natural expression of our deepest unique identity. Together we form a larger collective We Space that can move anything with the power of collective Outrageous Love.

Taken from a first draft text from the forthcoming book The Path and Practice of Outrageous Love by Marc Gafni and Kristina Kincaid, this series elaborates on a critical advancement of the Unique Self Dharma that Dr. Marc has developed after Your Unique Self was published.
