Becoming Proactive and Progressive for the Common Good of All

by Niánn Emerson Chase


The Amish

We’re all appalled at the senseless brutality of the shootings of ten Amish girls in Pennsylvania in October 2006 which resulted in five children dying, five seriously wounded, and the suicide death of the shooter. This incident is just one of thousands that happen daily planet-wide that make us question whether we humans deserve to continue living on this troubled and endangered world. And yet, another Amish-related incident happened that makes us proud to be human beings and gives hope for us and our world. Some of the Amish parents and friends of the children who were shot attended the funeral of the man who had done this dreadful deed. They comforted the murderer’s family and friends, assuring them that they held no bitter feelings and that they had forgiven the perpetrator who too is a child of God, though a lost one. The Elder who was the spokesman for the Amish immediately after the shooting incident made this statement to the clamoring reporters:  “We must forgive and move on.” Obviously that is what these deeply religious people have decided to do—forgive and get on with their lives.

I think the Amish community of individuals is able to “move on” with forgiveness because of their understanding of the personal presence of a loving, merciful God and the reality of a spiritual aspect within each of us human beings. They can more easily live clean, peaceful, and environmentally-responsible lives because they realize and embrace some spiritual truths that are practiced in their everyday lives.

The Amish in the “Pennsylvania Dutch” areas have been part of the American landscape and culture since the seventeenth century. They, like most alternative groups and cultures, have in their history suffered for their different ways and lack of compromise with the more mainstream culture. But because the Amish have been around for almost 400 years they are not as persecuted as they once were. People got used to having them around, and their lifestyle has remained basically the same for centuries. They are not growing in substantial numbers; they are not considered political or social activists; and they do not participate much in the mainstream society. Basically, they mind their own business, obey the laws of the land, and are peaceful people.

What most Americans love about the Amish and other non-mainstream groups who have become part of what is considered charming local color is their gentleness and goodness. Their steadfast faith and loyalty to their beliefs is a testament for the majority in the mainstream that humans can create a culture that is compassionate and decent, a culture based upon some level of divine principles. The presence of the Amish and other established religious groups lend not only a diversity to the American melting pot but a hope that if things get too tough there are the Amish and others to rely upon to save our world. (Note though, that most citizens of this country who appreciate the Amish aren’t joining them. In fact, usually the Amish are ignored except when traveling tourists may stop and buy some organic produce or distinctive crafts when in the Pennsylvania Dutch country.)

How the Amish have responded to this latest tragedy is indeed an inspiring model for all people on this strife-torn world to look at. Though the Amish live a lifestyle that may be considered by most “old-fashioned”—not using much (if any) machinery or technology and not being influenced by changing trends of dress and other aspects of our fashion-obsessed dominant culture—they have shown that they are more progressive than many.

What is Progress?

I think that probably any individual or group who has a degree of understanding of some true spiritual meanings and then puts them into practice is considered “progressive” within the realms of the celestials. Now, that does not mean that all religious people are progressive, for note that I stated if they have an understanding of true spiritual meanings and put them into practice. As many individuals realize, many who tout religious language have no or very little understanding of the true nature of God and divine principles, and they most certainly do not put into practice those divine laws, though they talk a good religious talk.

The term “progressive” then applies to any idea, decision, and action that contributes to the actual moving forward of an individual, group, society, or civilization, progressing towards divine pattern which is found on the three levels of reality—material, mindal, and spiritual.

In order then for true progress to happen, there has to be spiritualized meanings and motives behind all decisions, whether in politics, religion, education, medicine, business, science, the arts, architecture, construction, or any other area of life. Within that context we can better understand the statement in The URANTIA Book that “progress is the watchword of the grand universe.”1 Unfortunately, the word “progress” has been cheapened by applying it mainly to financial gain, regardless of the costs to the environment, individuals, and society in general. I all too often hear:   “You can’t stop progress,” when discussing the harmful effects of overdevelopment in an area without concern for the negative ramifications on the surrounding community and natural environment. Irresponsible and unethical growth and development are not progress in the true meaning of progress.

Lah-May, Managing Editor of the Alternative Voice, reiterates what many of us in Global Community Communications Alliance (as well as other progressive people) have said. In her article “Radical Restructuring Needed” published in the last issue she wrote:  “Humankind desperately needs leaders—real leaders—not the ones who are in power now and who have contributed in a big way to the many and immense problems on this planet. Every war, every famine, every environmental disaster, every corporate maneuver to control the world’s resources, etc. demonstrates the ineptitude of the current world leaders. The world needs strong, courageous, noncompromising leaders who can step in and provide direction to turn things around. We need leaders who are in tune with the laws of the universe and will of God—the Creator of all.”

Lah-May goes on to say in her article that actual progressive leaders seek, “in humility, what the all-knowing, all-present, all-powerful Creator is trying to lead them to do for the benefit of all of His creation. Progressive leaders consider the whole of creation and apply that radical concept in every area of decision-making. A civilization that sustains life, love, cooperation, peace, and well-being for all people will need leaders who are the most spiritually-advanced. Those who are the most spiritually advanced, don’t concern themselves with religious traditions, dogmas, political parties, or other separating belief systems. They’re concerned about people and their souls. They realize as leaders they are responsible for the development and actualization of those the Creator has entrusted them with.” Note that the souls of people must be considered. In a true progressive civilization, the well-being of persons includes their material and psychospiritual status.


The Amish people’s acts of kindness, gratitude, humility, ministry, love, and forgiveness in the face of unjust brutality reflect some very important basic divine principles that should be practiced on all levels of conflict and confusion—whether within a family, a neighborhood, town, country, or internationally. These people of strong faith are true followers of the greatest Peacemaker of all who walked this world—Jesus. They, as Jesus would today if He were present in human form, allow the peace of the spirit to reign in their hearts and minds in spite of the crazed ways of retaliation that plague this planet. In a civilization of light and life, retaliation is not considered progressive. In fact, it is considered primitive and barbaric.


How quickly those in our consumer-driven dominant culture grab up the language of the more progressive people, often referred to as the “cultural creatives.”2 Those caught in the system of mechanistic materialism incorporate the language of cooperation and kindness into the regular rhetoric and jargon of their advertising and politicking, within the framework of their motives of selfishness, greed, and short-sighted visions. Words that had beautiful and inspiring original meanings are now cheapened as they become part of the newest fad or trend that continues to keep our civilization on its mad course of destruction.

For example, I have noticed that all kinds of businesses, big and small, as well as organizations and politicians are using buzz words like “community,” “family,” “sustainable,” “spirit,” “soul,” “diversity,” “heart,” “eco,” and “natural” to promote their products or ideologies that are not in reality related at all to the word used. Or if what is being sold is related, it’s on a very superficial level, a level that does not bring the degree of change needed to solve serious problems. But it sure does sound good, and it soothes consciences and helps people stay comfortable remaining in a world that (as Omar Bradley once said) has “achieved brilliance without conscience.”

Omar Bradley was a general who commanded the U.S. ground forces in the liberation of France and the invasion of Germany in World War II. He declared after a time of deep reflection on the state of our world:   “Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.”

The Amish may not be scientific or economic giants, but they are indeed giants in ethics and practical peacemaking. But they too need to make changes if they are to be part of the new civilization of light and life that will manifest at some future time. They are a beautiful culture, but their culture must become even more progressive, more proactive if they are to become powerful change agents in helping to reshape our world.

Confrontation is Needed in Order for
the Manifestation of a Light-and-Life Culture

In these times of the adjudication of the Bright and Morning Star versus Lucifer there must be confrontation of evil, just as Jesus openly and in righteous anger confronted the unethical and greedy business people in the courtyards of the synagogue and later the religious and political leaders who used the name of God to serve their own agendas that perpetrated a broken social and religious system.

Change agents shake up the status quo, which definitely needs shaking up. In the last twenty-five years numerous books have been written by progressive people of vision who understand at some level the seriousness and complexity of the world’s problems and realize that the dominant, economy-driven culture in control must be reshaped and restructured in order to save this world from ecological devastation and/or nuclear holocaust. Many of these progressive people realize that spirituality must be applied in all areas in order for a more cooperative and compassionate civilization to emerge.

We change agents of Divine Administration make some people nervous, even angry in our culture-building, exposing of wrongdoing, educating of higher spiritual principles, and giving a vision of a civilization of light and life. Our existence makes some people uncomfortable because truth expressed in community living and in written and spoken language that encourages rethinking, reshaping, and restructuring shakes comfort zones, and many don’t want to think or act outside of their established boxes. For those who do want to jump out of their boxes, they are inspired by change agents (of Global Community Communications Alliance or otherwise) and aspire to become “cultural creatives” themselves.


Jesus said to be in the world but not of it. What does that exactly mean? What does that look like? I think that the Amish, in their decisions to remain simpler in their lifestyles and not be part of the industrialization and technolization of modern society, believe that is how they are in the world but not of it. And it is true that with industry and technology have come many problems, but also with this modernization have come many solutions to solving major problems in a fast-growing planetary population.

Along with the horrors of modernization are the wonderful achievements. In every era, every generation there are the good and the bad that come with material and intellectual advancement. If spiritual meanings are not brought in and practiced in this advancement, then problems and horrors do arise.

As I wrote in an article published in the Alternative Voice a couple of years ago:    “We humans are a mass of inconsistencies and contradictions. It seems that we have within us the capacity to hate just as intensely and deeply as we can love, and we can be just as cowardly and compromising in our dishonesty and greed for power and materials as we can be courageous and noble in our willingness to put our lives, and egos, on the line for ethical and moral ideals.” I go on to state that if humans do not tap into the spiritual circuitry innate within them, they can become crazed and brutal, or indifferent to other people’s suffering. “If an individual, or group, or culture does not build ideals and values on spiritual reality (not human religious doctrine), then most humans will show their teeth in a brutish manner when scratched or squeezed,”3 as many have done towards us in Divine Administration, and as they did towards the Amish decades ago before the mainstream was comfortable with their presence.

It has been said that “what we do in the world flows from how we interpret the world.”4 I say that individuals’ understanding of circumstantial reality and our memories of events are influenced by our premises, perceptions, and prejudices. If persons do not have an expanded understanding of spiritual principles or scientific data and are full of fear, resentment, disgruntlement, dissatisfaction, and so on, imagine how they perceive the world and their circumstantial reality. Scary isn’t it? If a leader of a nation surrounds himself only with people of one mindset, say of a military mindset or a religious fundamentalistic perspective, the decisions of that leader can be pretty destructive and out of God’s divine pattern.

A New Language for
a New World

Walter Brueggeman, in his book The Prophetic Imagination, states:   “It is the vocation of the prophet to keep alive the ministry of the imagination, to keep on conjuring and proposing futures alternative to the single one the king wants to urge as the only thinkable one.” Within that context Jesus was a prophet for He encouraged the ministry of the imagination and presented a vision of a much better world, what He referred to as the “Kingdom of Heaven,” that could happen through personal spiritual transformation of individuals which would eventually result in a manifestation of a kinder and more cooperative civilization that was founded upon divine administration principles.

Global Community Communications Alliance and Church offers “New Millennium Spiritualution Thinkshops” for change agents. These are designed to expand progressive people’s understanding of divine administration principles that need to be implemented in every area of civilization. Terminology is introduced that is new or enhances already existing concepts that describe and define what a future civilization of light and life will look like.

Just hearing or seeing some of the terms or “Aquarian concepts” can stimulate our imaginations, minds, and hearts to resonate with a vision of a world transformed by love, wisdom, courage, and light. Consider this language related to Divine Administration:   planetary sacred home, destiny actualization, ascension science, the physics of rebellion, spiritual destiny mechanisms, CosmoSynchronicity, humility management, purity of purpose, ascension administration, cosmic focalized communication, cosmic wheel of interrelated destiny, CosmoPoliticos, individual actualization motive, starseed positional management, Starmotion, and Spiritualution. That’s just a smattering of the concepts that are expanded upon in these New Millennium Thinkshops.

I think we all understand the need for good leadership on all levels, from within a home to planetary level. Back to Lah-May’s article referred to previously. She comments:  “...let’s be honest and realistic—effective leaders need to have willing followers. If a radical, capable leader gives direction on how to unite to achieve the necessary goals, will we as individuals be willing to drop our own agendas for the common good of all? Would we be willing to make personal adjustments at all levels of reality—the physical, the mindal, and the spiritual—in order to help others meet their God-given destinies, not to mention our own? Would we be willing to forgo our getting what we want when we want it for lifestyles that are more sustainable to our planet? For example, would we accept eating mainly seasonal foods that are locally grown and produced? Would we be willing to take public transportation and perhaps cut down personal trips to once a week? Would we be willing to radically change our concept of housing and no longer pursue the Great American Suburban Dream and instead see the wisdom of community-based housing, even perhaps downsizing our living situation? Would we be willing to accept that there can be more to God than what our circumscribed religion and belief system currently defines, and then be open to expanded truths? These are just a few of the questions and challenges that each individual must face if we want to contribute to the survival of our species.”5

To become those genuine spiritual leaders that our world so desperately needs in order to create an actual future cooperative civilization—true “peace on earth”—somebody has to begin to make such sacrifices and develop the self-restraint needed to sincerely serve others and take care of them, before our own needs. As a great Hopi prophecy says:  “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Good will eventually outshine evil.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is in our recognition of a loving divine Parent and our personal relationship with Him that we then can begin to truly find our real selves, open up to our personality circuitry.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We humans not only have innate within us the desire to love and be loved, but also a desire to find God, to experience God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of our greatest challenges is to coordinate our humanness with the divine within us. Jesus did that in one life, and He said that we humans can accomplish what he did.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your message should have a flavor of universalism to it in order to appeal to many different types of individuals.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Epochal Revelation takes our understanding of concepts and blows our mind—expands our minds in all directions. It is constipation of the cosmic mind to be stuck in dogmatism and fundamentalism.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Integrated into the patterns and plans of God for the whole are the choices that individuals make.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A mature person doesn't pretend that they are more than who they are. A mature person will be transparent.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A lot of the suffering we go through is a result of resisting the Spirit of Truth, resisting our own expansion. If we allow God in, the suffering can be transformed into something greater.

Isn't our highest destiny to be in the eternal moment striving to be more godlike, more open and receptive to the leadings of the Threefold Spirit within us, regardless of what we are doing?

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our experience of accepting God's and others' forgiveness, we are empowered to forgive those who hurt us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is difficult for a person to recognize the goodness in others, to acknowledge others' accomplishments if he or she does not have some level of self-respect.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As you choose to spend time to develop your relationship with God and deepen it, your capacity for loving other human beings unselfishly will expand and deepen and broaden.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As we become more aware of the goodness of God and His standards within divine pattern, at the same time we become more aware of the evil in the world that stands in stark contrast to goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Even though our physical bodies show signs of aging, we are forever young in our eternal present and in our eternal future.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We know that there have been many people who have been considered failures in life and yet, from God's perspective they were some of the greatest people that walked the planet.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you are not moving forward, you are not alive. If you are not tapped into that spirit of God and you are not tapped into the realization of who you are as a child of God, you are not really alive.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Living at higher levels of super-consciousness is living in the eternal moment, fully present with those around you.

My hope for all humanity is to experience the reality of knowing that we all are in the richness of our eternal present within our destinies.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Living in any form of community reveals both our gifts and our limitations.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

I think that innate within all humans is the desire to always reach for something higher, something more divine.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We are not just any tribe. We are the reunion of the goodly flock, the regathering of the eagles.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Part of genuine community is learning how to confront in a compassionate, respectful way, and also learning how to receive confrontation in a humble, gracious way.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Drop your baggage that holds you back from liberation.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We are multicultural and need to identify with all cultures as our planetary brothers and sisters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The destiny of this world, the world of the beloved Christ Jesus the Creator Son of Nebadon, is to move into light and life through the brother- and sisterhood of humankind.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the destinies of individuals is to see the hand of Providence in their lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Failure is a learning episode.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus gave inconvenient truths.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our cooperation with the Threefold Spirit of God, we can have quantum leaps of growth and healing in our adversity rather than being broken by it.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The changes that are happening are cosmic in scope.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In this moment you are a being of God in His hand. Let Him squeeze the junk out of you.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is the foundation of a truly religious person.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the First Activist, and He provides the pattern for all of us humans to become pro-active.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The sign of maturity is being able to admit failure. And every human being fails.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The tribulation is meant to lead to the purification of ourselves.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The destiny of every woman is wisdom.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Having fun and enjoying life is the best way to become spiritual.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is that divine nature within us that can empower us to rise to the heights of love that is reflective of God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As mortal ascending sons and daughters of the Universal Father, it is our destiny to be continually and increasingly filled with the truth, beauty and goodness of the circuitry in divine pattern.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We need to grab onto the higher aspirations of wanting to be a more loving person, of being in God's perfect will moment to moment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we truly see each other as family we are the tree of life to one another.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Always in any truly great movement that brings any kind of progress to the planet, there is the presence of both men and women.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You don't pick babies off of trees. You have to go through labor. It is well worth it. Every civilization has to go through labor to progress materially, mindally, and spiritually.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Friendliness is being interested in someone else.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Truth and beauty are of the heart and mind; goodness is putting into action the beauty and truth of God and divine ideals.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Wisdom requires that we determine the probabilities of manifesting the possibilities.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Those who are true problem-solvers see the potential in the circumstances before them. If you cannot see the potential, nothing will really change.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our tiny culture here as an EcoVillage and intentional community is much more than that; it is the outworking of the Trinity’s influence in all our lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

All the pessimist sees is the problem. When you allow God into how you see things, then you are transformed into a positive person who sees the potential in divine pattern.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Let us not forget the soul within each of our human brothers and sisters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

By choosing to act the part—the "fake-it-till-you-make-it" process—the spiritual forces can help you to actually become the part.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The gift we've been given in The Cosmic Family volumes and The URANTIA Book allows us to come into our cosmic minds and see ourselves as universe citizens.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our role is to stay in our superconscious minds, to make decisions from our higher selves.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus was then. Christ Michael is now.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We all well know how important it is to realize that your idea of what power is may not be God's idea, and our idea of God's timing may not really be His idea of timing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Life is a pilgrimage, a spiritual journey. On a pilgrimage, living is a journey where we are looking for spiritual epiphanies, spiritual enlightenment, growth, and healing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God will give you the desires of your heartÑnot the transitory desires, but the ones your soul desires. Your true self is what will be granted to you eventually with God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Reading and integrating Fifth Epochal Revelation and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation helps us to become citizens of this universe.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our understanding of wealth is relative depending on where our values and standards are.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The presence of Providence or a sense of God's hand in your life has many layers and levels of richness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is in those moments of expressing genuine love and concern for another human being that I have experienced the most happiness and fulfillment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Peace begins with individuals, with each of us finding our place as ascending sons and daughters within the divine pattern of the Universal Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Welcome those times in your life when your comfort zones are challenged, as this will help your soul to grow.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We are becoming more Christ-like, more God-like, day-by-day, as we persevere.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A very important aspect of our spiritual growth is being put in situations where we really have to learn to be thoughtful of others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We must help construct our inner selves, our higher minds and souls in order to bring about mindal and physical healing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

For you to truly forgive someone, you have to first experience that state of grace of God's forgiveness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

When aligned with divine pattern within perfect personality pattern, you don't have confusion and find your true self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We get so caught up in our mundane lives and physical bodies—what they do to us and what we do to them—that we forget what we have around us and the great cosmic family we have here with us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

There are many people who, through their desire to become better, have unknowingly submitted themselves to the leading of the indwelling Thought Adjuster.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order for individuals and groups, cultures, and nations to move closer to a world of light and life, we all have to get out of the stagnant water of doing the same thing over and over.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the destinies of every person is to somehow experience Providence in their lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you have goodness in you, you have greatness in you. If you see goodness in another you see their greatness. That is how we need to view each other.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The purification of the planet can happen through cooperation of human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In that salvation from self (with a little "s"), you begin to really move into your true identity of who you are, unfolding in that unique personality circuitry that is only yours.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Though high intelligence does enhance our ability to do more good for more people, it is the essence of love that perpetuates gentleness, compassion, and forgiveness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Meditation is being still before God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You cannot really love God, receive His love, and grow and expand in that divine love without simultaneously loving other persons.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your true point of origin is God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is the destiny of every single child of God on this planet to discover the Father—the First Source and Center—to develop a personal relationship with Him and to grow in true self-esteem.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your destiny is to find yourself in God and ascend into your personality.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A truly wealthy person fills their being with the spirit of goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to experience healing, reconciliation with God, and genuine community, we must be close and intimate with every facet of ourselves, including every shadow and every spot of light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Have the courage to claim the authority of right and the authority of goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

My first and most important significant "other" in my life is God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is a love-saturated Person, and the foundation of all of His/Her laws and principles are based on love. We humans are at an embryonic state of understanding the true nature of love.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Fear disables us from truly being alive in divine pattern, from unfoldment into our personality circuitry.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You should ask yourself, “What can I do to become a problem solver verses a complainer?”

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is always better to give more time and energy to those who are willing to build towards a positive future.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Physical death need not be final, but merely a graduation into a sanctuary of sacred space where correction, rehabilitation, and healing happens.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

From an eternal perspective evil is not real; love is real and of eternal value.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

True community happens when we continually correct our error so that we may love and serve others more purely.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Leave your worries, fears, and burdens behind and cross the rainbow bridge of God's spirit within you and step into peace, power, healing, and joy.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God's time lag of mercy and justice cannot be controlled by any of us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Cooperation with God requires moment-to-moment decisions to think and act from our higher minds, to become spiritized.

-Niánn Emerson Chase
