Meet a Great Teacher!

Timothy Wilken

I am currently studying the teachings of Marc Gafni who I first heard speak in June of this year. I soon purchased two of his books: SoulPrints and The Mystery of Love, but what were most valuable to me were his audio lessons: The Erotic and the Holy and The Soul Prints Workshop. Marc is a Master Teacher, perhaps the ‘LEONARDO’ of teaching.

His main interest right now is in building a community of enlightened humans. He has hopes that our human species can evolve into a fully adult race. He understands that humanity’s survival can only occur if we decide to ‘grow up.’ This would require that we begin treating each other with respect and kindness. We will need to talk together. We will need to work together. And, most importantly, we will need to think together.

When we stop creating new problems, we will discover solving our old problems just got a lot easier.

If we choose to live intelligently, making our decisions based on mutual understanding and good information, we can be much more efficient then we are today with our trial and error decision making, and our great ignorance of each other’s  lives and values.

Marc is at the leading edge of this new co-Operative way of thinking.

iEvolveMarc Gafni writes: The future of our world depends on the great realization of love: that which unites us is infinitely greater then that which divides us. For the first time in the history of the human race, we are able to rise beyond the place of our birth, our religion of origin, our family circle and choose to live our highest truth. This truth transcends and includes all of our personal history even as it invites us to our singular and unique evolutionary destiny

The Spiritual teaching for this age must be drawn from all of the great traditions of Spirit, pre-modern, modern, and post-modern. These great understandings must be lovingly integrated into a space of open heart, community and insight that has the power and the compassion to guide us on the next stage of our personal and global journey.The lineages are the great teachings of Spirit developed by the great communities and masters of all the ages, in all parts of the world.

Translineage means that we are moving towards transcending and including the Great Heart, Mind, and Body truths of all these lineages into an evolutionary integral Spiritual teaching. This is a down to earth, elegant, gorgeous teaching which embraces all facets of your Unique Life.

Until very recently, you, like many other people received the lineage transmission of the Spiritual system that was dominant in your place of birth. You may have received it consciously. More likely, like most people in modernity, you received it unconsciously.

By lineage transmission we mean the absorption into your being of the great ideas, insights, maps, heart and mind knowings of a great tradition of Spirit, by whose lights you could orient and guide your life.

Usually the Spiritual transmission that you received was confused and diluted at best. You did not know quite how to integrate the apparently contradictory insights of modernity and post-modernity with what you understood to be the great truths of the wisdom traditions. …

For the first time since the advent of modernity and post-modernity we can confidently tell you that there is a better way to live. We call this way TLP: Trans-lineage Path – Practice for the Future. It  is the next wave of Spirit. It is the clear direction of Spirit’s evolutionary trajectory.

It is the way of heart aflame. It is the embodied way of ethical being. It is the way of wide and deep mind. It is the way of sustained Spiritual practice and constant acts of kindness and loving. It is the way with direction, intention and purpose.
