Audrey Kitagawa

Stepping into Global Citizenship


Audrey Kitagawa works as a full-time volunteer for the United Nations in the rescue and rehabilitation of child combatants forced to fight in civil wars and insurgencies throughout the developing world. Formerly a successful attorney in Honolulu, Kitagawa is also the sole heir to the spiritual legacy of her guru, the Divine Mother, and fulfills the role of teacher, guru, and spiritual mother to her own students around the globe.

In this Voices talk, recorded in New York City, Kitagawa discusses the state of global consciousness—particularly the state of consciousness right here in the USA—and points unequivocally to the necessity of first elevating one's own consciousness in order to contribute to the state of human consciousness as a whole.

Alternately speaking about her work at the U.N. and about the greater spiritual dimension of life, Kitagawa builds bridges between our highest altruistic aspirations and the stark, often primal, reality of our actual condition. Only by striving—and succeeding—to uplift our own perspective, from an individual, national, and even global point of view, to the highest cosmocentric perspective, can we begin to make a difference that really counts.

To illustrate the general state of things, Kitagawa points out that the top three expenses annually in America are: $463 billion on defense or defense- related items, $400 billion on illicit drugs, and $150 billion on alcoholic beverages. Given that a mere $13 billion would insure health and nutrition for all the worlds poorest people, you have to wonder about the average condition of the human psyche and spirit today, and how radically it can and needs to change.
