What we-the-people can do
All game changing ideas and if not now when??
As I'm sure you have experience with your local community building - getting folks on board with a way of thinking is a great challenge. How have you approached sharing these ideas, and what has been the response?
I've been wondering how important this "unified vision" piece is - after all, we all have different ways of contributing to the greater good - whether it be a religious/god or spiritual path/guru, a scientific lens with system thinking, a political passion for finding the workable next steps, an artistic expression of loving kindness, a servant-leadership model of helping and mentoring others, a calling to build a family and raise kids with compassion - it all belongs and is all a part of the great awakening. I may be completely wrong, but I think the "thing" that unites us is unspeakable, un-namable, not leveragable to push agendas.. and yet, it does unite us, and it does help us make a collective impact.
My emphasis is on teaching awakening. The more us that awaken to who and what we really are underneath what comes-and-goes between our ears, the more the outer reality will sort itself out naturally.
Suzanne, how successful has anyone in the consciousness movement been at starting a new political party (anywhere in the world)?
I celebrate the task you have taken for yourself. One aspect is acknowledging the many positive practices available to us. Another is to put pressure on governments to stimulate people power. The other aspect is a wisdom council. Is this correct? To encourage people to do all three? Do you have a wisdom council?
