We are sharing a few passages from an inspiring message from Ervin Laszlo: Humanity’s Sacred Mission – 5 Point Upshift Manifesto.

The religions and spiritual traditions often speak of the mission of humanity and claim that we have a sacred or divine obligation to pursue it. The project announced here is based on the proposition that humanity does have a sacred mission, and that seeking and advancing it is of urgent and vital interest. But humanity’s mission is sourced in the universe, rather than in a transcendental Being or Intelligence….

…For conscious and responsible human beings, the creative life-force manifesting in evolution is a life- and consciousness-creating sacred source. Apprehending it and advancing the evolution it produces is a sacred mission. Pursuing it is highly promising. It helps people find meaning in life; and advancing it overcomes the pessimism, inertia and depression spreading among young people in many societies. These considerations are the reason and the basis for creating and implementing the cooperative “apprehending and advancing humanity’s sacred mission” project.

The Five-Point Upshift Manifesto

1 – We are nearly eight billion people on the planet. Are we a peaceful and cooperative community of eight billion, or are we a group of stressed and depressed individuals fighting wars and facing intolerable conditions? This is still for us to decide.

2 – We appear to be heading toward chaos and catastrophe. But our descent is not fated: we can upshift the way we evolve. Every war and aggression, every climate catastrophe, every migrant emergency can reinforce our resolve to find our way to a peaceful and cooperative world.

3 – We are in crisis, and crisis brings awakening. In our case it brings the awakening of a conscious species capable taking its evolution into its hands. Evolution took off in the universe 13,7 billion years ago in the aftermath of the Big Bang and has been unfolding ever since. On Earth it has created a planetary web of living systems, endowed with diverse forms and levels of consciousness. We are not a cosmic accident: we are part of this evolution. We can align with it and ensure our life and wellbeing, or ignore it and risk chaos and extinction.

4 – We can align with evolution in the universe: we can create a world of peace and harmony on the planet. This is a feasible task. In The Great Upshift Thirty-five international thought-leaders show how it can be achieved.

5 – Upshifting to a peaceful and cooperative world is humanity’s sacred mission. It is the mission of a conscious living species to safeguard the presence of life on Earth, and to advance the evolution of the consciousness associated with life.
