As we enter into a pivotal year for us and our world, it’s clear that the role of community has become key to the way we navigate the huge changes that life seems to be bringing our way. I’m taking the opportunity with our Face Book community to personally express my deepest gratitude to you for all that you do to support our grow-ing virtual family, as well as all that you do to make the big community of our world a better place.
I want you to know that I’ve never been more optimistic about our future and the world that is emerging before our eyes!
THE STAGE IS SET
It’s no secret that the world of the past is gone. The conventional ways of thinking and living that we’ve grown accustomed to—the ways we’ve thought of jobs, careers, money, wealth, security, healing and the role of America in the larger world are falling away before our eyes, faster than even those who knew the changes were coming could have expected. It is a fact that you and I are witnessing the greatest shift in power, wealth, resources, and thinking in recorded history. And while the experts have their viewpoints regarding what lies at the root of specific crises and what “went wrong” with this or that, when we step back and look at the big picture, the reason for such massive change becomes obvious: the world of the past is no longer sustainable...
CHOICE POINT 2012
While ancient traditions and modern science underscore the magnitude of our time in history, they also remind us of a powerful fact: It is through our choices that the outcomes will be determined.
The question is this: How do we tip the scales of peace, co-operation and healing in our favour?
Specifically, how do we create an environment:
That supports fair and sustainable economies?
That shares Earth respectfully and compassionately with all life?
That bridges the issues that tear at the fabric of society?
THE SHIFT IN THINKING
... it will take every one of us, and the diversity of our beliefs and ideas, and the love for life that we bring to our global community to birth the world of our greatest destiny rather than succumb to the darkness of our greatest fears. For those who can embrace the learning curve of our past without judgment, the future becomes the palate for new industry, new jobs, new forms of expression, and new communities based upon sustainable, ways of thinking, living, and being in our world...
Personally, I’ve never felt better about the future and the possibilities that await us. Now it’s up to us. We’ve already made the choices of peace and cooperation in our hearts. Now it’s time for us to live those choices in our world. I look forward to working with you as we do so, together, throughout this new year of 2012, and beyond.
