USING historical analogies in order to predict the future of how to
IS NOT working. On a planet which is experiencing an ever
accelerating rate of "changing change", one must ask -
"ONE strategy, it seems to me, leads us into a richer way of life, into a
deeper reciprocity with the land around us, and with the myriad beings that
comprise this land. This IS a very different notion of truth from the one
that holds sway right now within conventional science, which is still trying
to figure out the 'truth ' of 'how nature works ' - It seems to me that a more
fruitful understanding of truth would ask how we can live in right relation
with this rainforest, so that neither we nor the rainforest are suffering. If we
are going to study humpback whales, how can we as a human community
and a humpback whale community flourish as parts of the same world?
I’m not interested in pursuing the questions of: what is a humpback whale?
How does it work? What are its mechanisms? To even ask those questions
presumes that I am something other than an animal myself - that I am
some kind of bodiless mind, a pure spectator of nature, rather than a
participant in it."
A revolutionary is part of the political world; his approach is through politics. His understanding is that changing the social structure is enough to change the human being.
A rebel, as I use the term, is a spiritual phenomenon. His approach is absolutely individual. His vision is that if we want to change the society, we have to change the individual. Society in itself does not exist; it is only a word, like "crowd" - if you go to find it, you will not find it anywhere. Wherever you encounter someone, you will encounter an individual. "Society" is only a collective name - just a name, not a reality - with no substance.
The individual has a soul, has a possibility of evolution, of change, of transformation. Hence, the difference is tremendous.
The rebel is the very essence of religion. He brings into the world a change of consciousness - and if the consciousness changes, then the structure of the society is bound to follow it. But vice versa is not the case, and it has been proved by all the revolutions because they have failed.
No revolution has yet succeeded in changing human beings; but it seems we are not aware of the fact. We still go on thinking in terms of revolution, of changing society, of changing the government, of changing the bureaucracy, of changing laws, political systems. Feudalism, capitalism, communism, socialism, fascism - they were all in their own way revolutionary. They all have failed, and failed utterly, because man has remained the same.
We have to be rebels, not revolutionaries. The revolutionary belongs to a very mundane sphere; the rebel and his rebelliousness are sacred. The revolutionary cannot stand alone; he needs a crowd, a political party, a government. He needs power - and power corrupts, and absolute
power corrupts absolutely.
Human consciousness has not grown for centuries. Only once in a while someone blossoms - but in millions of people, the blossoming of one person is
not a rule, it is the exception. And because that person is alone, the crowd cannot tolerate him. His existence becomes a kind of humiliation; his very presence feels insulting because he opens your eyes, makes you aware of your potential and your future. And it hurts your ego that you have done nothing to grow, to be more conscious, to be more loving, more ecstatic, more creative, more silent - to create a beautiful world around you.
"The Book of Understanding" by OSHO
The global, whole system change, infrastructure, which will allow peace on earth to be established, as a result of assembling the CHANGEL Project "Lego™ building blocks", will never be attained unless the very first CHANGEL "Lego™ building block" IS SOUND. The minimum, equitable, equality of thinking environment can only be based on integralist and post integralist values, beliefs & behaviours, as opposed to postmodernist values, IF IT IS 2 BE ALL-inclusive and NON-exclusive of ALL the values of the evolutionary spiral.
In consideration of the above, let us contemplate
& deliberate the need and, I would suggest, our
responsibility, to replace our opinions, so often
based on the intended misinformation
perpetrated by religion, politics, science,
business and the media, with the information
which underlies the wisdom of understanding
that emenates from the experience of practice,
both individually and collectively, of the
integrity of action of responsibly
implementing the ideas which flow from
THE process of knowledge being gained
Let us therefore start that process in the knowledge that the door may still be opened, whose key has been lost and could be found again ... Cerca Trova
THE KEY, to ALL the problems, with which HOMO SAPIENS and the planet
IS now faced, IS a sustainable solution which addresses the fact that ...
FOR those that understand no explanation is necessary
FOR those that don't understand no explanation will suffice.
IT IS only by LISTENING to the CHILDREN that this sustainable solution can be
established such that we can indeed BE PART OF SOMETHING BETTER, and no better
example of the wisdom of children has been exemplified, than by the Mughal emperor,
Akbar the Great.
In order that the CHANGEL Project facilitates a better understanding between men and women, adults and children, rich and poor, west and east, Microsoft and Apple, no better example can be followed than that which has been provided by Bill Gates and his management policies for Microsoft ...
Bill Gates has said "when I was 19, I caught sight of the future and based my career on what I saw. I turned out to have been right". His mother said to his wife-to-be on the eve of their wedding "for those that have everything, much IS expected".
Start by doing what is necessary ...
then what's possible ...
and suddenly you're doing the impossible.
St Francis of Assisi
