To catalyze healing, awakening, and transformation within individuals, and within the consciousness of
humanity as a whole.
We live these values and inspire them in others:
- Creating a culture of recognized oneness in which all may seek an abundant, extraordinary life
- Pursuing self-actualization as the fastest means to solving humanity's greatest challenges
- Being willing to evolve inefficient and out-dated ways of doing things so that we can create a planet that cultivates and celebrates life
- Delivering extraordinary results to our members and the rest of the world by becoming our highest selves and being of service to the planet
We believe in creating heaven on earth, and are committed to living that experience now.
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." ~ Buckminster Fuller
Never in the recorded history of humanity have we had access to as much material wealth and technology as we do today. Simultaneously, never in the recorded history of humanity have we had as much isolation, anxiety, depression, poverty, and mental illness as we do today.
Could it be that there is something about life on this planet that we have fundamentally misunderstood? Could it be that there is something about living a life of meaning, purpose, and joy, that despite our material advances, we have failed to grasp?
The greatest challenge facing humanity right now is not one of pollution, poverty, or disease. Our greatest challenge is not a specific country or form of government or type of people. Rather, our greatest challenge is one of consciousness.
Careful examination of human behavior, while considering Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, will inform you that humanity as a whole is in a state of survival mentality.
Me against you, us versus them, "what's in it for me?" - this mentality can easily be seen throughout human culture and stems from a worldview in which one must constantly fight for survival.
When one feels, even erroneously, that their survival is in peril, they will act out of accordance with the spirit of humanity. Compassion, charity, forgiveness, understanding - these all go out the window in survival mode.
The challenge then, is to elevate the collective consciousness of humanity out of survival mode and into higher states of existence. Using Maslow's model, this would include self-actualization and transcendence. In these states, one naturally experiences a life-changing oneness with not only one's fellow human beings, but with all of Life Itself.
As individuals enter and embrace the higher states of consciousness, they naturally want to cultivate and celebrate life. In these higher states, we realize that we are all connected. We realize that what we do to the least, we do to ourselves.
Over the millennia, humans have devised various forms of government and economic systems. But despite how "enlightened" any system is, the shortcoming is always the consciousness of the individuals that employ the system. As an example, capitalism can destroy the planet while allowing a very few to become obscenely wealthy at the expense of all, or it can foster competition and creativity and inspire the technology and resources to create heaven on earth. But in order for the latter to take place, an elevation of consciousness is needed.
At the Selvica Institute for Awakened Living, our mission is to increase the consciousness of humanity. We help individuals leave fear-based and survival mentality. We help individuals explore self-actualization and transcendence and do the work that deep down they feel they were put here to do.
As part of our mission, we are reinventing and reexamining many of the old ways of doing things. We are creating and evolving a new business model, one that exists not to accumulate wealth for the good of the few, but for the good of all of life. As part of that business model, we support various charities that are in alignment with our values. We support those individuals who want to make a difference in their communities or in the world. And we help and support all seekers of an abundant, extraordinary life.
