Rationale behind Spirituality, Science and Public Policy Network

Our current societal structure has led to widespread divisions across the globe, with nations, religions, and cultures creating barriers between people. These divisions stem from a fragmented mindset that attaches itself to beliefs, identities, and past experiences, perpetuating an illusion of separateness. This way of living, rooted in past ideas, desires, and fears, has fuelled conflicts worldwide.

This illusion has become so ingrained that we now inhabit a reality where individuals only prioritise what they identify with, focusing solely on self-preservation and expansion, and acting based on their own desires and fears. Consequently, the policies and actions originating from these fragmented, divided minds have failed to establish order and peace. This is because their source lies in fragmentation, identification, division, greed, and fear. Most policies, hence focus on the benefit of a few than meeting the challenge and the problem holistically.

Furthermore, those governed by these policies are themselves driven by desires, fears, and self-interests, only adhering to policies when it benefits them or to avoid punishment and seek reward. Unfortunately, their adherence is not rooted in a genuine understanding of  what is right and essential for the whole of earth including nature, animals and plants.

We have come to recognise that without a spiritual transformation in the human psyche, any action undertaken by these fragmented individuals will inevitably result in chaos and division. It is only through a spiritual transformation in the human mind that actions can be holistic, optimal, and free from divisiveness.

At SSP Network, we aim to create a platform for individuals and organisations, who are guided by compassion and love, capable of acting with awareness and presence rooted in a spiritual way of life. Our objective is to stimulate transformative change by promoting policies founded on a profound comprehension of human nature and consciousness. By engaging in articulation, education, and research at the convergence of spirituality, science, and public policy, we aim to foster holistic governance, societal advancement, and individual transformation.

Vision

We envision a civilisation where humanity embraces the interconnectedness of all life, guided by profound understanding of the oneness of human consciousness and nature, rooted in the convergence of spirituality and science.
