Roadmap to the Future: Part One
Get the story straight.
Here’s my story. I was a whiz at college. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude from NYU. I am good at figuring things out. And I have Inside the Intelligence, a communication from the unseen world that tells me tells me what I am supposed to figure out. It involves getting this world moving. Here we are, warring with ourselves and between nations, and not dealing with the danger we are in from nature’s ravages. How to get into forward motion? With our interconnected world vulnerable to system-wide upheavals, which could include humanity’s extinction, this is a body of ideas for speeding up our evolutionary process to act as one interconnected humanity.
This roadmap to the future is in three parts.
Change who we think we are. Go from wanting the most money to wanting the most good. Every culture has a creation story that clues people into what is expected of them. Adam and Eve is about humanity being born to suffer. Now, even science shows us we are born good, here to flourish. In a lineage from Pierre de Chardin to Thomas Berry to Brian Swimme, my #1 storyteller, we get the Universe Story. If humanity makes it, that story will underlie reality. We’re riding the horse in the direction it’s going. The most important and most basic thing to do is to teach that story to everyone now. It will get people feeling good about being human and wanting the best for everyone. That would get us creating the world we’d like to be in.
To impress you with how important a creation story is:
One way for telling humanity the Universe Story is in a film. There is a script of Brian Swimme excerpts from talks he has given and an animator ready to start working at the beginning of September!
Part 2 next week. How to organize ourselves for we-the-people to act. And I’m always looking for thinkers to think with.
