I am sitting here trying to find my entry point into all of what is churning around in my mind and heart. It is very difficult to find the doorway to a nice clear hallway of unfolding story, instead I see all of these peepholes that I can’t quite fit myself through. I know each of these peepholes leads to the energy core at the center of what is tumbling around in my heart and head. Some of these peep holes are about friendship and traveling companions on this journey towards this evolutionary leap of consciousness that we all are on together. Some of these peepholes are about ideas, commitments, dedications, and actions that are stirring around in that energy core and wanting to be seen and acted upon. Some of these peepholes are about possibility and some are about despair and they both point to the same place. Some of these peepholes are about the Summit. Some of these peepholes are about the I and some are about the WE. Some are about love and respect and some are about humility and power. So many peepholes….. where is a man to start?
So let me start with the energy core and see if I can trace my way out to the peepholes instead of the other way around.
As many of you know Lynne is doing some amazing things in this world. She is in the business of shifting paradigms, world views and pointing evolution. Her book “The Soul of Money” and business The Soul of Money Institute are about shifting us from a consciousness of “MORE” to a consciousness of “ENOUGH”, especially focused on money and possession. The natural extension of that work became her next focus “The Pachamama Alliance” which is all about creating a relationship with the earth in such a way that we move from “MORE” to “ENOUGH”. Pachamama is working with governments to rewrite their constitutions to give rights to nature as well as humans so that trees and rivers and animals are protected by the constitution like we humans are. They have already succeeded in Ecuador and are moving into relationship with other governments large and small.
The next stop on her journey has been to partner with some other folks in initiating a grassroots movement that is a call to action for all of humanity to shift the paradigm noticeably in the next 4 years called 4 YEARS GO. The thinking behind it is that most of think of transformations in 4 year increments, the transformation of high school and college and the presidency. We hold 4 years as a cellularly recognizable timeframe in which we can create a transformation. If we declare today both our responsibility for and the vision for our world in four years and then begin living into that commitment we can literally create a great turning towards life and away from destruction. The other thing that 4 YEARS GO declares is that there is an urgency and that if we don’t step into transformation and this great turning, if we don’t take responsibility both individually and collectively there is not much long term hope for life on this planet. This is not fear based reactionary talk this is information coming from future trending labs around the world where scientist were scratching their heads and feeling depressed until Lynne and some others had them add into their equations the Human Transformation factor. When that was added in the scientists found heart again and could model possibilities.
So as you can probably tell, the portholes of possibilities opened up for me to know more clearly what my work is in the world. It has become clearer and clearer that the work in developing co-active coaches and leaders who can hold a transformative agenda and guide the folks that they touch towards this great turning is extremely important work. We need to leverage the Human Transformation Factor and we are the ones to do it.
The reason I went to chat with Lynne was to let her know what we were up to in the Summit. She is giving the climactical Keynote speech where we move from gathering wisdom to creating commitment. I think she is the perfect person to move us into a collective commitment and individual commitments based on that collective commitment. In the mean time I am working on my 4 YEARS GO commitment. You could too, go to the website, click on the link above or this one 4YEARS GO and make your commitment and then come back here and let us all know what it is.
