Spirituality manifests in the world as integration. Realization is the ultimate integration and transcends all worldly concerns. As the truth intersects with the realm of form, it expresses itself as transcendence. Transcendence is the principle of inclusion. Inclusion is the method of integration. Cultivation of integration is the way of transcending separation through inclusion. Ultimately, all must be included for permanent peace to be found. This is true individually just as it is true collectively. In order to best serve the spirit of collective inclusion we cultivate integration in the personal field. Indeed, the personal field is the only field within our power. And ultimately, there is no separation between the personal and the collective fields. There is only our awareness of this clear presence and the transient forms that comprise our experience. Knowing this is recognition of the ultimate ground that includes all and transcends even the movement towards integration.
