Reexploring the Godhead
Rev. Laura George, J.D, serves as Executive Director of The Oracle Institute and author of The Light: And the New Human.
Since the dawn of consciousness, humanity has crafted false belief systems about God: mythological and anthropomorphic depictions of “The Light.” Today, many people seek a new theosophy and an integrated Godhead, worthy of our 21st Century minds and hearts. We are reexploring the Godhead – well beyond the New Age inquiry of the last century. Instead, “New Humans” recognize the many social, scientific, and spiritual forces that are shifting the Godhead toward belief systems founded on a genderful/genderless concept of deity.
The reason for our inquiry is clear: The ancient religions and antiquated holy books no longer suffice to provide meaningful, relevant answers to the primordial questions of human existence. Rather, it is the current merger of science and spirituality, coupled with the new concept of Holism, that provide New Humans with cutting-edge answers. Thus, while no new theosophy is yet on the horizon, the religion of tomorrow will be based on a “Tower of Truth” that includes the best of philosophy, psychology, physics, ethics, neo-humanism, and panpsychism.
The lingering issue will be how to placate (and possibly subdue) the old humans who still subscribe to outdated dogma that validates the barbaric “eye for an eye” moral code. We also have the issue of how to handle those who still believe God is a guy in the sky. Thankfully, the patriarchy associated with “Daddy Deism” is slowly losing ground, which is why we see the Culture War growing and the rise of White Nationalism – an ugly backlash akin to Custer’s Last Stand. The emerging “God Gap” in belief systems is just getting started, incidentally. Look for more mayhem during this “Great Cusp” – the period of intense socio-spiritual chaos that always accompanies a major paradigm shift.

In short: When the Godhead shifts, so does the paradigm. And since people of faith vastly outnumber atheists, expect new and novel theosophies. Let us hope that New Humans adopt increasingly more sophisticated and peaceful belief systems about the cosmos and our interrelationships. Over time, as the Spectrum of Consciousness continues to vertically expand, we should start seeing positive patterns of both individual growth and societal maturity – to the benefit of believers and atheists alike.
