compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
With deepening states of crisis bringing unrest to all parts of the world,
there is a growing need for change in our ways of thinking and acting.
We now have the choice of either spiraling into deepening peril, or
breaking through to a world of dignity and wellbeing for all.
Throughout its history, humanity has been guided primarily by a material
consciousness. Fearing scarcity, we have continued to pursue material
gain beyond necessity, taking from others and depleting the Earth’s
natural resources. If our aspirations continue to focus only on what is
material and finite, our world will face inevitable destruction.
What is our true nature?
In order to make more enlightened choices and change the course
of our history, we need to return to the basic question concerning
human life. Each and every one of us must ask, “What is our true
nature?” and seek a meaningful and responsible answer.
As Steven Brant has so succinctly proposed in his HUFFPOST contribution
"The thinking “science” of “discontinuous change”
(brilliantly presented by Russ Ackoff in his TEDTalk-like presentation)
is still critically important ...
But I believe now that people will never be comfortable using such
thinking tools if they still live in a world dominated by fear. FEAR
leads the masses to follow so-called “strong man” leaders
(as Trump claims to be). LOVE leads us to be open to exploring
places we’ve never been before.... sometimes partnered with
people we’ve never partnered with before.
