The story of Atlantis
Those who take over the Earth
And shape it to their will,
Never, I notice, succeed;
The Earth is a vessel so sacred
That at the mere approach of the profane
It is impaired.
And when they reach out their fingers it is gone.
Tao Te Ching
There is no beginning. There is no end.
1. Introduction: survival and growth
SOME CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN in the hope of finding what they are looking for at the summit, only to discover that that it goes down the other side again. They believe that life is about what they want.
Others climb the mountain to get a better view, a vantage point from which they can better see, knowing that this is what they need to be able to share the vision. This vision enables them to gain the knowledge to climb the next mountain together.
The Book of Outcomes is the third Book of The One Project, which enables a sustainable reconnection, learning, survival and growth with one-another, and then, consequently, The One.
The One Project, which is ‘The Project of The One’, contains key messages, including psychological, philosophical, economic and spiritual truths, plus the practical systems and frameworks for uniting them, and then combining them morally and collectively for the common good.
Each of the three Books explains different levels of 1understanding, the reasoning and the results, and consequently the outcomes that can result from ‘free will’, if one chooses to morally collaborate and co-create, thereby manifesting a connected, holistic and sustainably moral path for Human Beings to journey together and to become sustainable together on Earth. Without this collaboration and morality, the survival of the Human species is unsustainable.
The three Books, including The Book of Life and The Book of Intention, were channelled and written for the benefit of every Human Being. They help to sustain life, both on Earth and in the life to come. The One Project therefore shares these key temporal messages and the connected vision that have been both experienced and channelled from the Divine Essence to enable this sustainability, along with the consideration of the many collaborative and collectively moral choices that need to be made by each Human Being.
Human choices will result in either a sustainable or unsustainable future for Humanity, and for each and every person and their soul and spirit.
Since the ills of a society can only be changed by a critical mass of collective free will, moral sustainability can only be attained by a conscious and unified purpose for the common good. A belief in the common good is not an object, or something simply to be observed; it is an objective ideal, something to be morally sought, acted upon and sustained: a sacred message and answer that had already been given within The Golden Rule: Love another as one-self.
Consequently, the conscious reconnection across societies for the common good cannot be sustainable without good values that are both accepted and commonly shared. Conversely, immorality is a separation (the meaning of sin) from one-another and the shared environment that sustains life itself. Immorality can never be sustainable, and can never sustain anything, because a focus on the self without the value of collaboration cannot produce lasting benefits; it is a contradiction. As shall be seen, immorality can never be both constructive and benevolent, either to one-self or for one-another.
2Benefits befit the good; benevolence is good of one’s own volition. It is therefore a choice.
The promised space of time for moving this awareness of choice forwards, the conscious mindfulness of Humanity with the unity of purpose for the common good, has therefore come; it is called the Transformation of Human Consciousness. This is therefore the coming of the promised space of time for collaborative and moral change, and of harmony, balance and peace, to create a new beginning to be called The Golden Age. The vision of The Book of Outcomes, and the three Books of The One Project as a whole, is to consequently reconnect, co-create and collaboratively live in a world with lasting moral and beneficial value, which is then also socially, economically and ecologically viable and sustainable for all Human Beings.
The collaborative and moral values and messages given within The One Project can also be developed and applied by giving, learning, sharing and teaching based on experience. It is a collaborative and collective process of connecting the personal and individual experiences, perceptions, perspectives and the given and jointly shared knowledge that has been accumulated between different cultures and diverse people across the world and throughout history, from both East and West.
By using this moral know-how and the gift of conscious and free will choices for the common good, this benefits each and every Human Being and therefore one-another. This moral and holistic philosophy, this innate wisdom and passion that is held within the soul and compassion of spirit of every Human Being, also unites the faith and belief systems of the common good.
Such a world is not difficult to imagine.
Imagine a world that is:
• based on giving and sharing; all Human Beings equal, free and empowered;
• a place where one would intend for another none other than would be intended for one-self;
• taking pride in the way people are learning and growing, that they can think, intend and act collaboratively, constructively and benevolently for the common good;
• living and Being so that the children are empowered to create fulfilment for everyone and for the others yet to come;
• this fulfilment with one-another, for one-another;
• a Garden, Earth’s Eden, for reconnection with Nature and God, The One, as Intended.
Where God confronts darkness:
The Book of Outcomes is a blueprint for the survival of humanity and the battle between Light and dark.
It contains key messages of The Golden Rule - treating others as you would wish to be treated.
The Book of Outcomes integrates Eastern and Western philosophies and addresses all the required components, including leadership, socio-economics, the environment, technology and climate change.
This is where God, The One, casts Light over darkness and helps every human being to become fulfilled in life and afterlife, helping every culture, belief, and human science, to learn and grow.
The Book of Outcomes enables every faith system, community and science of the common good to unite and sustain, through shared values, as One.
