There’s a lot of energy building to create the New World. Over the past few years and right now, on Wall Street and around the world, people are acting on their evolutionary impulse toward greater peace, abundance, joy, and freedom. Because this impulse to align ourselves with what is deepest and truest in our hearts and to create an external world that reflects it is what human beings are designed to do, progress toward it has the momentum of all of human history behind it and cannot be stopped.
This video is from the Occupy Wall Street “protest,” where many are gathered for that very reason.
From the moment we rubbed two sticks together and created fire to bring greater physical comfort and cook food, we’ve been on this quest to truly live up to our own greatest potential. It’s clear that the world we’ve created so far does not reflect that potential. Unlike other points along this evolutionary human journey, not living up to our potential now is more than simply unfortunate. It’s killing us. All of us.
We see signs everywhere that our current way of living is destroying people and planet at a rate and scale that is simply not conducive to sustaining human life—a situation in which there is truly no “us” and “them” in the equation. Now that we can see that our tendency to create a perpetual list of “thems” to fight against has painted us into an evolutionary corner, we’re left with the inevitable realization that we must all work together to ensure our own survival.
I’ve acted on my own evolutionary impulse to create a way for us to work together to do just that, where ordinary people literally create the New World. It’s a dynamic local-to-global, whole-system strategy that uses World-Building Workshops you host locally as vehicles for cohesive global transformation. I hereby invite you to host, participate in, or sponsor one, and transform your life, community, and world all at the same time. If you’re breathing, you’re a world-builder. It’s easy to make a difference. Contact me here to get started.
Dear Occupy Wall Street,
This invitation is for all of you whose evolutionary impulse and love for your fellow human beings has led you to the streets of Liberty Square to stand as one for all of us. It’s an acknowledgment of the profound importance of what you’re doing and an invitation into what’s next: World-building.
The Old World is dismantling itself. It was designed to take humanity to this point, but is proving by its very demise that it’s not capable of taking us forward. You and others are and have been helping humanity see that. As this recognition really sets in, and more of our world systems go defunct, people are likely to get pretty desperate if there’s nothing in place to take us forward. Asking the current crumbling structures to do what they are incapable of doing will have by that point become clearly nonsensical.
We’ll need a concrete, viable way to literally put the world to work creating the New World—a way to channel the energy to create our bright future together rather than destroy people and planet out of desperation. You and the rest of the world are seeing that desperation play out in the increasingly violent and oppressive behaviors of the Old World power structures. This is what happens when fear is present and a way forward isn’t.
That’s where my evolutionary impulse and yours come together powerfully.
You’re now in the process of standing for a world my global world-building design empowers us to create. It’s the critical “how to” for moving forward from the place of recognition you and others have ushered in to cohesive collaborative action where we literally create the New World of the people, by the people, for the people, with the planet.
Some are calling you “protesters.” I don’t see you as that. I see you as potential world-builders. You get at a cellular level that the world you’re “protesting” is no longer conducive to sustaining human life. You’re standing for our collective survival and demonstrating you’ve got the love and chutzpa to back it up—essential qualities of a world-builder.
Some of you are calling yourselves “resisters.” I don’t see you as that, either. I see you as ALLOWERS, because in truth, you’re not resisting anything. You’re actually ALLOWING something so powerful and important, that it’s the key to everything. You’re allowing your spirits to drive the bus, so to speak. You’re allowing your spirit to take precedence over your conditioned human existence to call forth a world that reflects who we TRULY are as human beings, despite the obstacles of a world that reflects who-we-are-not.
I share these qualities with you. I, too, am the 99%. I’m the product of a typical blue-collar family. I have no political aspirations, religious doctrine, or family fortune. I put myself through college and had a satisfying career, which I walked away from several years ago to assemble a way for us ordinary folks to quite literally create a whole New World together. The purpose of my life is to empower this movement, and this movement needs people like us leading it. That is my only agenda.
The qualities we share make us perfect candidates for leading the world-building movement. You’re already leaders of the movement to stop the Old World from driving the human bus off the cliff. That is a huge accomplishment of profound importance. I’m inviting you now—whether you’re demonstrating on the street or not—to lead us in not only turning the bus around, but in building an entirely new one capable of supporting a thriving new humanity.
As I mentioned before, the world-building movement design I’ve developed involves a global rollout of World-Building Workshops people host locally. Because these local workshops are the main vehicle for global transformation, the more of them we do, the faster the New World literally gets created.
We need people to sponsor, participate in, host, facilitate, and replicate them. To that end, here are some specific things you can do:
Gather groups of 30-80 people for an Intro Workshop so they can learn how it all works, identify their roles going forward, and generally be inspired that there IS a viable way forward. Contact me.
Gather groups of 30-80 people for the weekend World-Building Workshop itself and be among the first group of New World-builders. Contact me.
Gather groups of 10-30 investors who are in a position to financially kick-start the global rollout of grassroots world-building. Contact me.
Set up crowd-sourcing activities to finance the world-building. What better way fuel a grassroots movement than to crowd-finance it ourselves? Contact me.
Host a Harley tour stop in your community. I’m riding my Harley into communities engaging folks in powerful large group demonstrations of what’s possible. Learn more here.
Generally, peruse the Creating the New World web site to get a feel for the possibilities and find other ways to engage.
This is a big deal.
I realize inviting humanity to create a whole New World is a pretty big deal. It’s an even bigger deal when the invitation comes with a concrete, viable way to do it. Add in a clear demonstration that among us, we have the reason, vision, power, and technology to pull it off, and it’s a bona fide huge deal. Suddenly, we have no more excuses and no one to blame but ourselves if we—as the elegantly designed, infinitely creative species that we are—continued to bicker and play powerless all the way to our own extinction.
What a colossal waste that would be. And, not much fun. Come on. Let’s start world-building.
