Couples Commitment Ceremony

download (5)Marriage, they say, ‘Is an Institution’,

One that was created a very long time ago

for various reasons that made perfect sense to

those that were

Part of that old world view.

Historically,

in most cultures, married women had very few rights of their own,

being considered, along with the family’s children,

the property of the husband

as such,

They could not own or inherit property,

or represent themselves legally.

Over time,

A lot of these ‘Non-Equanimeous’ perspectives have been Transcended…

Another big step up In the

Evolution of Human Developmental Stage Growth

is the Transcendence – From

Myth, Magic & Miracle Based Ethnocentric ‘religious’ views…

And moving up to the next stages:

Modern Rational

Post-Modern Rational

Pluralist (every one is equal)

To Finally…

Integral

Beginning the 2cd-Tier of Human Conscious Awareness

Of which about 5% are currently now operating at.

There are some very valid points to consider with stage growth,

You can’t skip stages…

At best you can accelerate your growing process…

But

for a lot of people,

They are stuck in a ‘traditional’ Spiritual rut.

The downside of ‘traditions’

is that

it keeps a lot of Progressive Higher Perspectives

Stifled.

Way back ‘when’…

No specific ritual was prescribed for celebrating a marriage:

“Marriage vows did not have to be exchanged in a church,

nor was a priest’s presence required.

A couple could exchange consent anywhere, anytime.”

Then…

Decrees on marriage of the Council of 1563

made the validity of marriage dependent upon

the wedding taking place before a priest and two witnesses

Thus

Establishing the Doctrine of

Bringing in the fear of God and the Dogmas of Church

into Love.

Still,

about 40% of Americans are currently drawn to this perspective…

Which seemed like the ‘thing to do’ 500 years ago,

Heck ‘

‘We’ had just started to figure out the Earth was Not indeed ‘Flat’

:-O

The ‘Theology’ of the times, mixed up with combining the power of the state

Gave a mighty strong Authoritative pressure to

Believe in the unbelievable

Have Un-rational ‘Faith’ in the Myth, Magic and Miracles

Required by Church & state

Before your True Love could be

‘Sanctioned’ in accordance to Church Doctrine

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A few hundred years ago,

the transcendence towards the next higher 3rd-person perspective emerged

~ The Modern ‘Rational’ ~

The capacity to take an

Objective, Scientific, Universal Perspective

and thus the switch in identity from a

Local Ethnocentric identity

to a universal or global world-centric identity occurs

A switch from “us”

to “all of us.”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

In the late 1960’s,

The emergence of… Postmodernism.

Where Traditional modernity introduced a 3rd-person perspective,

This new stage-known variously as:

pluralistic, postmodern, relativistic, sensitive, individualistic, multicultural

came with the emergence of

a 4th-person perspective

The capacity to

Reflect on, and criticize, 3rd-person perspectives,

including science,

Leading to a multitude of different or pluralistic views.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Only a few decades ago developmentalists began to notice

the emerging of the next

Highly Integrated Level.

Integral

Begins the 2cd-Tier of Human Conscious Awareness

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Abraham Maslow had called

1st tier – “deficiency needs”

and 2nd tier – “Being needs”

The 1st tier levels are

Partial, narrow, excluding, separative, and driven by deficiencies

2nd-tier levels are

Inclusive, embracing, comprehensive, integral, and driven by abundance

Only around 5% of the worldwide population

is at integral levels of development.

The Inspirations of creative wholeness tend to trend things upward towards

More

Embrace and more integration of many perspectives…

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

To ones that have transcended Ethnocentric religious perspectives of

only accepting and unconditionally loving those within their group of followers

Those at Higher developmental growth stages

can no longer ‘resonate’ with constraints of Lower stage perspectives

But yet

Still feel Inspired to Express their Love to a Higher Source

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This is a Non legal and Non Binding Marriage of True Love that recognizes the Eternal Being in each other

A Union of Soul Mates

Not a pesky Bureaucratic Formality

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Those on

The emerging second tier of Human Developmental Growth

are on the cusp of

Personal Awakening.

They have grown as far as the leading edge of society

and now are Naturally inclined towards a Spiritual-ness…

A key aspect of Spirituality is the ability to

‘Be’ in the moment.

In ‘this’ moment, a life together is fulfilling

Later down the Road of Life…

The ever present moment may bring uncharted directions to pursue

for Inspirations we can’t see currently.

To Limit one’s self with the huge burdens legally required to buy yourself out of

a legally binding commitment

Seems quite the unnecessary expense of wasted time and money

If the heart is just not in it anymore

There should be a natural conclusion to move on…

Not a new car’s worth of Lawyer fees and court costs.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And Oh Yea…

No One Is Going To Hell

for Not accepting Myth, Magic or Miracle based Doctrine of a Church wedding

Or

for being among the 41% of first time marriages that end with Lawyers

The societal trend is towards more couples choosing the path of

A Commitment Ceremony
