compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
My soul-mate and I have raised two daughters aged 33 and 31 years and a son of 29 years and they in turn - with their own partners - are raising our first six grandchildren. Individually they're all completely different - apart from the distinctive "GROVE-nose" - the dominant-gene physical nose - and the propensity to be nosey - so to speak - to the point of always wanting to know and understand .
The best thing my children have said of me - is that " he always moved heaven & earth to
get back home to the family as soon as possible - when travelling the world espousing his
'art of the possible' message "
I travelled into London, last night, to hear the message of another traveller.
He had just arrived from Zurich and made the point that he had found the journey from Zurich to London akin to that from London to Calcutta - and he should know because he has spent a lot of his life in India in search of the answers to his own questions - Who am I & Why am I here.
I am of course talking about Andrew Cohen.
Despite all that is being presently discussed in open forum including the LETS GET REAL zPod - I found his introductory overview to Evolutionary Enlightenment compelling & akin to Tony Blair's earlier master class in how to deliver a party conference speech - in Manchester.
I also found Andrew Cohen's reference to the fact that this particular phase of evolutionary consciousness had been going on for about a hundred years or so - absolutely thought provoking - from the point of view of the likes of Aurobindo, Einstein, Dawkins, Hawking, Graves, Pirsig, OSHO, Beck, Harding, Wilber etc.
I have been - a subscriber to the WIE Magazine for some time having previously purchased copies from our local Borders - sympathetic to the evolving format of the publication and welcoming of its broadly diverse perspectives. I have also listened for many hours to Andrew Cohen's " The New Enlightenment " - but his talk last night was for me absolute confirmation that my own long standing commitment to selfless and compassionate support for pushing the edge in the face of apparent intransigence from all around me - has not been a waste of my time - and has provided renewed motivational energy to my ONE and only SELF.
Hail to Brian & his team @zaadz - for providing the mechanism by which
through every consumer transaction on earth,
2. giving the children the responsibility and support to administer & manage such a
project and BE the ones who decide where/how, the money raised should be spent,
has the potential to establish penny on as THE lego building block template which
could glue together all activities involved in the eradication of poverty, so often
talked about by the ‘communities’ of politics, religion & science, in line with the
