A true legend in the space of conscious evolution, Barbara Marx Hubbard passed away just after 6:30PM MT on Wednesday April 10th 2019. Below is a statement from Caring Bridge with more details:
“Barbara was taken off of life support around 4:00 MT this afternoon and this beloved visionary and social innovator passed away, tonight just before 6:30pm MT. Thank you for your love and thank you for carrying your contribution to the next phase of our social connectivity forward in honor of yourself and the impulse of evolution through you, in you, as you.”
Barbara was well known for her work as an author, speaker, visionary and futurist. She is the subject of a biography by author Neale Donald Walsch, The Mother of Invention: The Legacy of Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Future of “YOU.” She authored many powerful and important books relating to the field of conscious evolution, very much like the work we do here at CE and certainly has inspired the work our ourselves and many others in the space.
Clear in her work, Barbara felt that if, as humanity, we could integrate newly emergent scientific, social, and spiritual capacities, we would have the ability to transform ourselves and our world in such a way that we’d move beyond the current global crises we face today, and could bring about a world full of potential.
As Evolutionary Leaders Council members, I only had the pleasure to interact with Barbara a couple of times via email and Zoom meetings. It was even in those brief interactions that you could see such a light in her eyes and spirit that you knew an incredible message and energy was being shared. I say this after my interactions with her, not just in her passing.
Her work and message will carry on in what she left within collective consciousness.
Here is the full statement from her website:
Dearest Beloved Friends,
It is with great personal sadness that I share with you that our beloved Barbara has passed into the next world just a few hours ago.
Barbara you were a blazing light in this world.
The Wild Stallions that moved you were yoked to the evolutionary impulse itself. Evolution was awake as you in Person. Reality delighted in having a Barbara experience.
You felt the ecstatic urgency of the evolutionary impulse moving through you all the time.
You took the pain of depression and turned it into the joy of evolutionary activism.
You took fate and turned it into destiny time and again.
You were the greatest Evolutionary Story Teller of our time.
Your dreamed of social synergy, of the Peace Room, the Office for the Future, you incarnated a vice presidential bid, a historic speech at the democratic national convention, the great Foundation for Conscious evolution, all of these were the vehicles you audaciously manifested for the impulse.
Abraham Maslow, Bucky Fuller, Jonas Salk, and so many more, including this writer, – you charmed us all, you recognized us all, you inspired us, you called us forth with you.
Friends, allow me for a moment to be intensely personal. I spoke to Barbara last Friday evening. She was filled with life. We were going over the evolutionary code I had written for evolutionary church the next morning.
Barbara, I called you the next morning. The nurse said you were not well. She held the phone to your ear; you said filled with life, “Marc” …and that was the last word you spoke. I flew to the hospital to see you right after church – on the next flight – expecting to meet you after the surgery – awake and fully alive. You did not wake up.
It is trite to say but it all happened so fast. I thought we had at least several years left to deepen the work and take everything to the next stage, and to drink many glasses of the wine you so loved along the way.
You were ninety and a force of evolutionary nature.
We communicated several times a day on evolutionary thought or vision. Each letter was clear, potent and reaching for the future. You lived in the future. In so many ways you were a memory of the future human. And in so many ways you were simply human.
Oh my God, I/We will miss you.
Barbara, we will hold a first memorial service for you this Saturday morning at Evolutionary Church. We will send everyone a link tomorrow. But I know you loved a big party.
So for your central memorial service -we will do exactly what you asked us to do. We will – all of us together throw a big Evolutionary Party, live streamed on line and in person.
We created together the Wheel of Co-Creation 2.0. Together we placed “hearts desire”; at the Center of the Wheel of Co-Creation.
At the Evolutionary Party, everyone in your honor, inspired by your calling forth, will speak their hearts desire for the sake of the evolution of love.
Barbara – We promised you we would throw the party – you promised to come.
So we are counting on you to show up.
Tears streaming down my face.
A Great Leader has passed.
A Great Feminine Co- Creator – reborn again and again through what she called Regenopause – a woman who was getting newer every day and never got older – has left our world.
A Great evolutionary has passed.
A great light has gone out in the manifest universe.
But I/We promise you Barbara, all of us – I/we will continue our EVOLUTIONARY PARTNERSHIP. Deeper than ever, with more evolutionary joy, with radical commitment, with mad love and delight.
A great sun has set.
A new sun must now rise.
The torch has been passed. We must all pick it up and light the world on fire.
Evolution must become revolution. The New story – “evolving the very source code of evolution” is not only possible but urgently necessary as we stand between dystopia and utopia.
Barbara love, do you like what we wrote here, do you want to edit it or rewrite it as you often did with me?
I love you Barbara. We all love you.
Tender, Audacious, Wondrous, MADLY. Maddening…
You are blessing.
You are the goodness of evolution pouring into reality.
You spoke the word. You were the Logos.
We will continue to speak the word, to tell the story until the world is transformed and every unique self knows they are personal expressions of the evolutionary impulse itself, worthy of infinite dignity, and joy.
All people are born creative. Let us create together – with you guiding us Barbara – from the new world which you are already lighting up.
