Birth: When the Spiritual and the Material Come Together

by Shari Arison

THE OLDWORLD IS COLLAPSING AROUND US. THE PERSONAL, THE INTERPERSONAL, THE MATERIAL, THE ENVIRONMENTAL, AND THE POLITICAL—THEY ARE ALL NOW IN A STATE OF FLUX, OF VOLATILITY, OF CHANGE. We are facing a new world, a world we have never known before. A world in which the familiar laws and traditional perceptions will no longer be of help to us. A world in which the conventional differences between the economic-business-material and the spiritual is nolonger valid. We are facing a world in which the spiritual andthe material come together.

The old world is collapsing around us. Not all at once, but in a process that started several years ago and is now reaching its climax. Like a wound that needs to be cleansed in order to heal, this climax is also accompanied by pain and suffering, by an infection that must be purged. This purging burns, causes pain, but this pain is essential. So that we can begin anew, we need to cleanse ourselves from what we do to ourselves, from what we do to each other, from what we do to our environment and to our world. The ever-growing aggression, the erupting wars, the collapsing economy, the poisoned air, the hostile media, the raging epidemics—all the plagues of the world are our infection. It is from these that we must free ourselves and heal ourselves in order to reach the new, the clean, the altered.

For too long humanity has acted with an outrageous lack of responsibility. We lost our balance and shifted our world out of balance. We wanted everything for ourselves. We failed to look at the overall picture and did not take into consideration those with whom we share the world—other human beings, living creatures, the earth and its resources, the entire planet. We focused only on ourselves. We took everything for granted and thought that the world wasmeant to serve us, that everything in it was created for us,and that all of it would still be here tomorrow. This arrogance has led us to the point where we are destroying our world—in every way, and not just environmentally— with our very own hands.

I believe we must understand that if we want change, we must create change. It is not in the hands of governments, nor in the hands of leaders or gurus, nor in the hands of the powerful or the wealthy. It is in our hands, the hands of each and every one of us. All of us have a share in the future, at every level: personally, interpersonally, politically, economically, and environmentally. Everyone must focus on his or her part, whether they are businesspeople or farmers, high-tech workers or schoolteachers. We must find our essence, to understand, to accept, and to respect first ourselves and then the Other, to contribute our part.

For most of my life I have received messages—images and worded communications, sometimes even in an ancient language—that come to me from above. In the past, I used the help of channelers who interpreted the messages for me, but today I know how to receive those messages directly, without the need for interpretation, without the inevitable bias that takes place when information passes through someone else’s filters (to stress this point, I use in this book two different words to describe the same phenomenon: “channeling”—given to me by another, and “message”— communicated to me directly).

About two years ago, I received a message in which I was told to prepare myself for an impending collapse. My response was not economic; I did not rush to sell my assets in order to prevent losses or try to make a profit. My only response was to continue with even greater determination on my path, on the path that I and the companies in the Arison Group have followed in recent years: a powerful and decisive process aimed at realizing the Group’s vision.

My purpose in this book is to share the path I have traveled, in the spiritual realm and in the business realm, to share the insights I have reached regarding the essential connection between the two, to speculate as to the nature of the new world we are approaching, and to reveal my business spiritual model—a new model for a new world, which will enable individuals, companies, and even states and nations to transform the collapse all around us into change, and to bring together the spiritual and the material, and from this meeting, give birth to a new future.
