Barbara Marx-HubbardBarbara Marx-Hubbard the founder and executive director of The Foundation for Conscious Evolution. Called by Buckminster Fuller "the best informed human on the concept of futurism", Barbara is an internationally known lecturer and the author of several books, including her most recent Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential. She is the co-creator of an intentional cooperative community in Santa Barbara.

This is an excerpt from interview with Barbara which took place on April 17, 2000.



BARBARA MARX-HUBBARD:
I found Adi Da in the 80s through His writing
specifically through Scientific Proof of the Existence of God Will Soon Be Announced by the White House! I read that and was extremely affected by it and recognized that this was a great Teacher and I later wrote an endorsement for it. . . .

As a futurist, I already knew that the capacity of the human race when reconnected with the Divine is far greater than that of Jesus or other traditional Realizers because when you add to their Realization all the new capacities and put that into God-centered consciousness you have a quantum jump. I'd experienced that and it had made me a visionary futurist. But I never felt that capacity in myself until very very recently. So when I was told by this friend of mine who is a devotee to "notice the Adi Da frequency", I took him very seriously. Rolf Carriere, too, had told me about how the Adi Da Energy had Empowered his work with children. . . .

The next time I came to see Adi Da, in January, I asked for His Blessing on the intentional community that I've founded in Santa Barbara. I already felt that the effect of the "Adi Da Frequency", as my friend called it, on my work was real and I was able to locate Him in my heart. And I could feel that instead of this disembodied Christ that I had been using as my focus for the Divine Presence, to build with or to infuse me, I had a real, live Divine Incarnation. It's my prayer that His Blessing can flow to the entire community here in Santa Barbara.

Our community formed in response to a speech I made in which I asked the question: "What would happen if this community experienced its own potential for conscious evolution?" A hundred and eighty-five people signed up and we now have about two hundred people in "core groups" by vocational affinity, who are ready to come together as a whole.

We had two devotees, Eliot Hurwitz and Wes Vaught, along with the head of The Fellowship for Intentional Community, come to join us and consult with us, and we are, I believe, an example of what Adi Da is calling for relative to the cultural reformation of the world through the establishment of human-scale sacred community. Now we are asking for and receiving Adi Da's Blessing but we are not His formal devotees. But we are a real example of how such a community can benefit from Adi Da's Wisdom and Blessing. Our goal as a community is to develop the processes, tools, and templates that any such community could use anywhere in the world.

What I gained from Adi Da's instruction about such "cultural reformation" is that 1) you have to overcome egoity and 2) you have to create human-scale cooperative community. My request to Adi Da on this second occasion was to infuse this community in Santa Barbara with His Blessing, so that we in the Santa Barbara community can serve the world as well as our own participants here in being an example and a demonstration of this new possibility, which will necessarily have to do with honoring Him as the Source of Divine Help and Blessing.

I feel very close to Adi Da, both personally and in my work, and I want to serve His Transmission by including His Message in a radio program I'm starting on Wisdom Radio called "Live From the Peace Room". It will begin in July and it reaches, via internet, all over the world. I said to various devotees I've met that as that program comes on the air I want to serve this Energy of Adi Da in a way that would be useful for His world-Blessing. I don't know yet what form He would like that to take, but I want to serve as a vehicle for His Blessing to flow to all the benignly world-transforming projects that will be linked in the Peace Room.
