You and I did not expect a global pandemic that requires us to shelter-to-place, while “essential” workers risk their own health to serve us, others are unemployed; inequity and uncertainty abound. It will take a long-range perspective before coming to terms with the good, bad and ugly of the current conditions, with which we as a species are grappling.
However, three things are clear at this point:
- Your personal evolutionary journey is not separate from the evolutionary journey unfolding in the world. You and I are inextricably connected to one another and to Mother Earth.
“We work from within ourselves toward higher consciousness, greater freedom, and more complex order to effect change in the world, first and foremost through our personal evolution.” – Barbara Marx Hubbard
a. In what ways are you seeing or feeling greater connectedness?
b. At this time, what are you observing about/from Mother Earth?
On a personal and collective level, we are being called on to release what no longer serves us mentally, emotionally and physically, in order to make space for what wants to emerge through this paradigm shift.
“Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals.” – Margaret Mead
a. What are you willing to release mentally and materially?
b. As a society, what must we release structurally and systemically?
- Now is the time to envision the world we want for our children, grandchildren, and 7 generations.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Chief Seattle
a. With whom are you aligned and willing to co-create a healthier world?
b. What does a healthy world supported by healthy sentient beings look and feel like?
For some of you, this may be the only or last time you will have to affirm, co-create and manifest a world in which we accept our:
- connection to one another, while respecting our unique differences,
- responsibility to be good stewards by reducing our carbon footprint, minimizing air, land and water pollution, and environmental racism.
“There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.”– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
If you are open and willing, I would love to dialogue with you, as a conscious, concerned and creative community to explore these and related questions. Please respond yes to this article and I will provide pertinent information regarding the upcoming dialogue.
