Six Essentials of Creation Spirituality:
One: The Universe, and all life within it, is fundamentally a blessing.
Two: It is through the work of spiritual practice that we move beyond fear into compassion and discover our deep and true selves.
Three: The spiritual journey can be understood as a dance moving in and out of four mystical paths:
- awe, delight, gratitude, joy (known as the Via Positiva)
- uncertainty, darkness, suffering, letting go (known as the Via Negativa)
- birthing, creativity, passion (known as the Via Creativa)
- justice, healing, celebration, rebirth, resurrection (known as the Via Transformativa)
Four: Every one of us carries within us the capacity to be a mystic, to be creative, to be visionary, and to be an agent for positive change. It is our responsibility to cultivate these capacities for the benefit of Earth and all it’s creatures.
Five: We rejoice in and courageously honor the rich diversity within the Cosmos which is expressed in every individual and embodies multiple cultures, religions, and ancestral traditions.
Six: Ecological justice is our priority as an imperative for the healing, sustainability and harmony among our species and the entire Earth community.
