When Werner Erhard first called for “a world that works for everyone” in around 1980, it was a radical concept. (1)
I remember when I grappled with it, I couldn’t imagine how such a world could come into being.
Now that question has been answered: A Fifth-Dimensional world is a world that works for everyone. Unconditional love and unitive consciousness will prevail. The combination of the two, affecting everyone and everything, will create a world that works.
Back then I was deeply mired in Third Dimensionality, as were we all and I couldn’t see the solution to the problem. Werner could see it however because he was enlightened and was probably acting on what he saw as a result of his enlightenment – or its further unfolding. (2)
There are two ways in which a Fifth-Dimensional world works for everyone.
The first is our internal state and the second is the way in which we regard everyone else.
Just from the few tastes of love I‘ve had in the last two weeks and multiplying that by factors of ten or a hundred, I can see that, if I were in Fifth-Dimensional consciousness right now, I’d need little, desire little, probably own little, etc. I’d be content with love and bliss and joy.
So my internal state would be conducive to a world that works for everyone.
Moreover, the way in which I’d regard others, from a place of love, compassion and sympathetic joy, and the fact that all others would also be in the same place, would mean that any departure from happiness and pleasant conditions would be quickly remedied.
But then, there would be no such departures. They could not exist in the elevated vibrations of the Fifth Dimension.
So we could say that Ascension itself will naturally lead to a world that works for everyone.
The trick is, and this is where we lightworkers come in, to create that world now, while we’re not in Fifth Dimensionality.
We can sit back and wait for it and it’ll come but we have an excellent opportunity instead to develop our skills by working diligently now for that same world, without the advantages we’d have after Ascension.
Moreover, as lightworkers, we’d be fulfilling our mission to see that as many folks come with us as possible by laboring strenuously for that world that works (and there are those lightholders for whom the words “laboring strenuously” won’t apply).
How do we act Fifth-Dimensionally when we’re not yet Fifth Dimensional?
First of all, we can trust. Why trust? Well, if we don’t know the way, we’re going to have to hear about it from others. And we’re going to need to trust the best accounts we can find if we want hints on how to get there sooner than the rest … like now.
Trust who? Trust the most credible sources we’re aware of, who are telling us what life is like ahead of us and urging us to love, be compassionate, be generous, etc.
Second of all, we can see and extend the trend. Have you not noticed that our emotional floors – the point below which we never go emotionally any more – has risen? Can we not see that, as it rises, we feel more and more love, calmness, mental silence, etc.? Can we not distinguish that as a trend and, if we can, can we not extend it in any way we can now and into the future?
Thirdly, when in doubt, love. Love is what this whole thing is about anyways. . We’re asked to realize our true identities and one way to say what that is is that our true identity is love. The mind is the barrier to love so let go of thoughts and just love, as Mary Magdalene said, with power and abandon.
All our efforts are maximally aided at this time. There’s so much love washing our planet and so much help, as S.N. Goenka would have said, that we’re bound to be successful, bound to be successful.
So we can understand what a world that works for everyone would look like and we’re building it. No, we’d rather not wait to have it handed to us on a silver platter because we know that we can learn and grow from this work. So we’re building Nova Earth now and the biggest step we’ll ever take in that process is just to love.

“Transformation does not negate what has gone before it; rather, it fulfills it. Creating the context of a world that works for everyone is not just another step forward in human history; it is the context out of which our history will begin to make sense.” (Werner Erhard – A Shot Heard Round the World: A World that Works for Everyone at http://www.scribd.com/doc/143329822/Werner-Erhard-A-Shot-Heard-Round-the-World-A-World-that-Works-for-Everyone
