Dream ON!

forestecosystem-04

Over the years I have had a series of seemingly precognitive dreams about the future of human civilisation. Now, one could be forgiven for assuming that these may have an apocalyptic or distopian flavour, however this is not the case, and each time I receive another instalment in this dream series it refreshes my sense of hope and joy, and faith in humanity.

Resonance Academy Delegate Program

Resonance Academy Delegate Level 1 Program is both a mind-shifting and knowledge expanding experience, which fully supports the emergence of a new chapter in the story of our planet. Taking this course of study has given me much needed confidence to believe in a positive future for humanity.

The program offers a comprehensive introductory series of course modules offering insight into ancient and modern history as it relates to our understanding of the nature of the universe in which we live. Included are in-depth explorations into the evolution and development of human technology and scientific knowledge. All this in a scientifically grounded integrative framework of understanding that allows a new view of our unfolding potential as a species to emerge.

Participating in the pilot model of this program allowed the opportunity to contribute feedback and potential resources with a view to improving the overall course offerings for future delegates, and represents a working example of collaborative research and development that truly enlivened my educational experience.

The programs course structure allows for absorption of the concise yet profound body of information provided, as well as time for further research into the concepts shared in the body of the courses. Regular generative interaction with faculty and fellow students throughout the duration of the program helps to increase the coherence of the cohort and encourage ongoing dialogues to develop and extend as we become catalysts for change in all areas of both our professional and private lives.

I highly recommend engaging this opportunity to consciously and intentionally ‘level up’ our understanding of what is possible, as an individual human being, and for the potential of all living beings everywhere.

A big thank you to all the production team and faculty, and especially to Nassim for his tireless years of work which have culminated in the opening of this Academy – Bravo!

Sanity option – Hope for the future.

James Greyson outlines a set of implementable strategies by which the human species may rescue the future and experience viable quality of life for all on earth. The conclusion to his introduction states:

“The flood of problems, locally, regionally and globally, already exceeds the capacity of researchers, policy-makers and the wider society to cope. The strategy of handling problems one at a time, a bit at a time, has not worked and cannot work. The solutions are not to be found where they are being sought, within the narrow territory of each symptom. Time is short but a new strategy is available: it is the ‘system’ that must be fixed, not all the separate symptoms. The boundaries of what is realistic need not be set by the struggles of the past nor current economic conditions. What is possible must match what is necessary. Habits of thought, world-views and economic rules-of-the-game can be switched from accelerating the planet crunch to reversing it. The goal of global security, implemented by the proposed policy switches, offers the possibility of future stability, security and prosperity. These switches redirect attention from the daunting list of changes that would be seen if things were working, to the manageable list of changes to make things work. This is not academic nor complicated and if acted upon people would soon wonder why it wasn’t done long ago.”

In this short and to the point talk, Deepak Chopra makes explicit many of the points we need bear in mind as we work with the code and the knowledge engines that will underpin the metamorphosis of human civilisation and the experience of life on earth. He also offers his expertise as a consultant in this area free to initiatives working along this line, I for one would like to talk with him about that 🙂

Legendary heroes of the future.

Several visionary characters, with the background and experience to count as effective influential actors, are among my “long view” choices for future heroes of this transitional time in human history.

In this posting I will introduce us to these humble giants, and describe why it is they will be remembered as some of the most powerfully influential movers and shakers of the early 21st century.
