Emanuel Kuntzelman is a lifelong spiritual seeker who has dedicated his life to raising environmental awareness, promoting cultural understanding and advocating for world peace through social action. A philosopher, writer, public speaker and social entrepreneur, Emanuel is the founder and president of the Chicago-based, non-profit organization Greenheart International. Founded in 1985, Greenheart International has built a foundation of cultural understanding across the globe while promoting environmental initiatives, personal and social transformation and fair trade practices through Greenheart’s numerous branches. As a result of Greenheart International’s efforts, each year over ten thousand students and young adults have opened their eyes to new countries and cultures while logging over 50,000 volunteer hours across the globe. From an early age, Emanuel was awakened to the sense of responsibility we all have to create positive change and help society on its evolutionary path. Believing that travel was an important component to cultural understanding and world peace, Emanuel set off on a spiritual path that led him to the islands of Formentera and Ibiza, Spain, and eventually to Madrid. While living most of his life in Europe, Emanuel has focused much of his recent efforts on social movements taking root in the United States, as well as Europe, founding the Ibiza Spirit Festival in Spain. Believing in the power of cooperation, Emanuel is currently contributing his efforts on building the growing collective of the Global Purpose Movement, a community of over 50 like-minded organizations collaborating to create a world that works for everyone. He also continues to promote personal development and social transformation through seminars, workshops and events. Enjoying the role of motivational speaker in evolutionary conversations, Emanuel has co-moderated the Institute of Noetic Science 16th International Conference in 2015, and regularly hosts panel discussions as part of ITP International’s Falkirk Series in San Rafael, California. Emanuel also enjoys applying the emerging understanding of new paradigm science to the business world. He is currently collaborating with a wide variety of business initiatives, including his work as founding member of the Conscious World project, in conjunction with systems scientist and philosopher Ervin Laszlo. Emanuel is also co-founder and president of the Foundation for the Future (Fundacion por el Futuro) based in Madrid, Spain, created to promote cultural understanding and environmental consciousness through the support and creation of educational programs and ecological projects based in Spain. In addition to his duties related to Greenheart International, the Global Purpose Movement and the Foundation for the Future, Emanuel is also a writer and regularly blogs about his Evolutionary Wave Theory, our singular moment in time and the importance of moving beyond empathy and into social action to create real change in the world. Emanuel’s debut book, Riding the Wave of Global Purpose, is forthcoming.

The Intelligence of the Cosmos

We are living in the most critical time in human history. And there are two main reasons for this grand affirmation: firstly, we live in an age in which science has given us the essential understanding of who we are and why we are here; secondly, our civilization is now facing the greatest challenges we have ever seen… Sophisticated technologies have allowed us to explore the microscopic makings of the quantum world, revealing a fascinating realm of the in-formed Akashic field underlying all reality. As for this being the most challenging time in history, one only needs to look at the exponential growth of population and environmental deterioration combined with the uncontrolled increase of armaments and material greed to conclude that, unfortunately, there has been no other time that remotely compares with today.

The new paradigm of science that reveals interconnected oneness and instantaneous, nonlocal communication confirms the positive side of Einstein’s proposition that life is, indeed, miraculous. The universal mind of consciousness is infusing existence with meaning every step of the way. On the other hand, we could say there is a five-hundred-pound gorilla in the room that very few of us recognize. Whereas Jane Goodall informs us that gorillas and chimpanzees demonstrate a sense of awe at the wonder of nature, inclined as they are to marvel at the beauty and mystery of a waterfall, we humans seem to be so entranced in our material world that we have lost the ability to appreciate our natural surroundings. So many of us no longer wonder why; we simply focus on getting more material wealth before the Earth’s resources are exhausted. The “hard problem” then is not so much who we are. The evidence for an intelligent field of consciousness is becoming so extensive that even materialist science will soon have to acquiesce and admit its existence. The harder problem seems to be why are we here? Laszlo gives us a short and definitive answer to aspire to: we are here to transmit more and higher consciousness into the universe…

Knowing that our purpose is to evolve and contribute ever higher consciousness allots a full sense of meaning to our existence. Recognizing that the evolutionary process is applicable to the development of our consciousness and that we likely live a multitude of lives adds even more profound purpose to who we are and why we are here. It makes us realize that we are responsible for every creative act, whether thought or deed, that we produce as living beings. As products of the Source field of consciousness (God, Origin, Zero Point Field—however we care to label it), we are co-creating the new consciousness with all of humanity and the Source itself. We are one, and we are all in this together. We therefore must welcome with widely open arms a shift to a cosmo-centric view that provides the framework for embracing the higher values that we have always held dear, but have forgotten in our efforts to count up everything measurable along the way. All of this paves the way for a worldwide cultural transformation that will open a path toward living in harmony, peace, and supercoherence.
