Hello friends and fellow integralists,
The haphazardness of my social media presence after writing “Soulfully Gay” and “Rising Up” over the past decade
………….. as Teal and Turquoise and Indigo and Violet and …. unfolded………… (in plain language, as I grew more fully into being an evolutionary, systematic thinker, intuitive, visionary, and mystic)
is now revealing a more wieldy package of discrete nodes. There are many moving pieces, so I want to let my friends and fans know the landscape.
Here’s how things are shaping up as of the Fall 2017.
(a) “Integral Cauldron” (for Magic/Magick/esotericism),
(b) “Brave New Words” (for autobiography), and
(c) “Unitive Spirituality” (a newly launched newspaper column for the LGBT community & beyond). (BTW my old blog, GaySpirituality.com, was transferred to a new owner last year.)
Note: my website also has info on my books & 11 years of my blog archives from 2005 – 2016.
A new spiritual autobiography, tentatively entitled Brave New Words, written in both English and Lingua-U, is slated for completion in 2020. (This will include expanded details on my so-called “Indigo period” including my relationship with the spirit I am calling the “Archangel Queibriel”.)
2. THE “PRACTICE” BLOG with a (more or less) daily blog at The Kalendar and http://thekalendar.com/ – This is where I do my daily contemplative practice, in a feedback loop for the public. As it is done in real time, it will vary somewhat according to my travel schedule and need to attend to other obligations.
The Kalendar is the temporal Konstruct (Sacred Time) of my worldview artistry. It is inspired by the calendar of the T’ai Hsüan Ching -Taixuanjing
I will not regularly cross-post these writings with my Homepages, so if you want to follow this stuff, you must subscribe to the blog and/or FB feed or Twitter feed.
A book on Spiritual Practice is planned for 2019.
3. THE EMERGENT WEBSITES / FB Pages – works in progress
(a) LINGUA-U.COM / Lingua-U – “Lingua-U, The Unitive Metalanguage”, is the priimary linguistic Konstruct (Sacred Thought) of my worldview artistry, stay tuned here for more as the book & other writings emerge in the next several months. It presentsa Prologue; two Sutras, one on Lingua-U proper and another on a second new language, Jai’ai, and a new “Kernel” for Integrative World Spirituality, a new scriptural genre which is a cross between a Sutra and an Application Programming Interface (or API).
The Lingua-U book will be sent to reviewers in December 2017 and published in 2018. I am committed to ensuring that an electronic version of the book is available 100% free of charge to the public.
(b) INTEGRALISM.ORG / [future website TBA in January 2018] / Integralism– Integralism tracks my contribution to the broader world of Integral Spirituality, drawing especially from Ken Wilber, Terri O’Fallon, and Aurobindo.
Integralism includes theory and practice related to the holistic Konstruct called the Wheel of Spirit, which evolves the traditions of indigenous and aboriginal spirituality (with nods of gratitude to my Mexican grandparents and ancestors in Mesoamerica).
*** Our world is in a period of time when we must reclaim key aspects of the primordial magical worldviews of our ancestors if we are to survive and thrive in times threatened by the real possibility of Apocalypse. The Wheel of Spirit is my effort to reclaim indigenous spirituality in a smart, philosophically robust way that includes pluralistically as much wisdom as possible from as many tribes as possible, past, present, and future. ***
When complete, the future Integralism website will present collaborative visions on the future of interfaith and interspiritual work in the Abrahamic traditions.
(c) INTEGRALMAGIC.COM / “Integral Magic Circle” FB Group, will be relaunched in 2018 or 2019 with writings and conversation specifically evolving the T’ai Hsüan Ching -Taixuanjing, Magick, and Thelema. These are a series of works to be written over 5 to 10 years. Highlights include:
(c/1) The Bear-Yak Zodiac (a.k.a. The New Zodiac), a contribution to mythopoetic astrological wisdom.
(c/2) The Stone-Star Tarot (a.k.a. The New Tarot), a contribution to the heritage of Carl Jung, Archetypal psychology, and Tarot-based esoteric thought. Three Decks of the Tarot are envisioned, each of 52 cards, to be used as flash cards for Lingua-U language instructions.
(c/3) Uvoha (a.k.a. The New Atlas), a contribution to geomancy and a response to aspects of George Gurdjieff’s philosophy via Arnold Keyserling.
(c/4) The New Map of Subtleties (a.k.a. The New Tree of Life), an update of Kabbalah-based wisdom which replaces Hebrew with the letters of the International Phonetic Alphabet as incorporated into Lingua-U.
(c/5) Klock (a.k.a. The New Klock), along with the Kalendar, one of the key vision-logic interfaces to Integral Magic, using the 24-hour clock.
(c/6) Untitled (a.k.a. The New Map of the Heavens), a work on the Divine Names including the new 270 Names of Allah revealed in “Lingua-U: The Unitive Metalanguage”.
4. COMMUNITY – I am active in the “Integral Agape” community forum where I share interesting links and contribute to general discussion topics of interest to integralists and evolutionaries. I am also a member of a few other Integral, Magic, Christian, interfaith, and LGBT discussion groups and often respond when tagged.
*** On a personal note, as my focus turns primarily to completing my books and websites, I will strive to be less “reactive” to the noise in social media. I hope you’ll notice a positive shift in the way that I engage on social media. ***
5. BRIDGE OF LIGHT – My ministry to the worldwide LGBT community and allies is now focused on the annual Bridge of Light holiday, with info at Bridge of Light – LGBTQ Worldwide Holiday and http://bridgeoflight.lgbt
6. THE KALENDAR SERIES – My sci-fi/fantasy book series is in the process of being fully reimagined as entertaining literature for pre-teens and adolescent children. The second edition of THE BLACK STONE and the first editions of its sequels, THE RED JEWEL and THE BROWN SWORD, will be finished in 2019 or 2020.
Book One of The Kalendar Series was published by Tangent Publishers, an imprint of Integral Publishers, in 2016.
other Internet and social media projects that I’ve started or participated in somewhat will probably need to be backburnered really soon. As you can see, I’ve got a lot on my plate ……………… plus my day job and getting/staying healthy ……………. and life & love …………… I won’t announce anything formally; obsolete stuff will just go away or disappear into the archive when the time comes.
Thanks for following along with me on this evolving path of my spiritual walkabout, a maze of murkiness turning more into a labyrinth of unfolding layers, ever approaching a peaceful equilibrium.
L: Light, Love & Law,
Joe Perez – Author
