If we are to thrive as a species in the 21st century and beyond, it is critical that we address the core symptoms and root causes of our society’s dysfunction from the inside-out, ground-up and top-down and evolve from an extractive, exploitative, war-based civilization to one that is regenerative, abundant, harmonious & thriving.
The Symptoms & Root Causes of Dysfunction in our Society
Pollution, war, poverty, disease, climate change and destruction of…Continue
"Man has come to dominate the planet thanks to two essential traits. One is intelligence. The other has been the absolute willingness to kill anyone and anything that gets in his way." ~Stephen King
Recently I saw the movie Lucy and while it was entertaining, it's kind of amazing how a movie about using the full capacity of our mind was written with so little mental capacity and imagination. Rather than Lucy using her incredible abilities to develop and…Continue

If you could increase your profits by improving the health, wholeness and happiness of your employees and organization would you?
It would seem that the answer to the foregoing rhetorical question, would be a resounding "Yes!" especially when the ROI on comprehensive, well-run employee wellness programs can be as high as 6 to 1 (Harvard Business Review, 2010) and eco-conscious, sustainability programs on average have a ROI of 2 to 1 (Bloomberg, 2011).
Despite the groundswell of…Continue

What if we could create a world of AWE -- Abundance, Wellness and Enlightenment -- a thriving and harmonious world that fosters humankind's potential for love, brilliance, beauty and kindness?
I am convinced that we can create such a world and am seeing a rapidly growing groundswell of people awakening and collaborating to transform our world.
There are, however, many people who still believe that those seeking to create a more thriving, loving, abundant, well and enlightened…Continue

I had a major revelation today (September 19, 2013) about the potential and possibilities for humankind. The timeline, dimension and illusion of our current "reality" is at the edge of transformation. . .
While walking through a redwood forest today, I stopped to embrace a beautiful redwood tree. Although on the outside, the tree looked healthy and strong, during my embrace, I could feel its life force was weakening. I…

Merrill Ward, AWE's Chief Enlightenment Officer, just shared this inspiring piece about transformation that I am compelled to share this with you. . .
Birth, Death & Metamorphosis
As the sap begins to pull back from the branches of the trees, and the leaves begin their inevitable shift into the vibrant reds, rich golds and deep purples of Autumn, my mind, body and spirit generally tend to begin their own withdrawl into the inner realms of Self as well. The…

We are each part of a Global Human Agreement (“GHA”) that creates our current reality. The GHA shapes our external and internal worlds and the way we relate to each other and our environment. Much of the GHA results from implanted programs that we perpetuate both consciously and unconsciously. These programs shape our view of the world, dictate our behavior and create our “reality.
In order to manifest a new reality, we need new tools that allow us to replace the programs…Continue
Be it - Create It. Anything you already are is easy to create. We often try to create our world without creating ourselves. Creation occurs from the inside out. Our external environment is only a reflection of our internal being.
We often pursue and strive to be something we are not, and in so doing compromise and limit our power of manifestation and the extraordinary potential we each hold. Rather than being extraordinary creators, we conform and fit in - to be…Continue

A friend of mine, Geoff Workman, compiled the chart below showing the astronomical inflation we are experiencing. Inflation is the hidden tax that covers the costs of the $20 trillion Wall St. bailout, the $1.2 trillion dollar war in Iraq and Afghanistan and the trillions of dollars of subsidies, pork barrel and inefficiencies of our Federal Government.…Continue

David Korten provides a good summary of the difference between Wall St. and Main St in his paper entitled "A Real-Market Alternative" (http://csrwiretalkback.tumblr.com/post/3300155425/a-real-market-alternative).
"The Wall Street economy," according to Mr. Korten, "is centrally planned and managed by big banks and corporations for which money is both means and end. The primary goal is…Continue

The language of the universe is vibration. We are simultaneously receiving, processing and transmitting vibrations that shape our “reality” in a co-creative jam session with the universe.
Vibrations are the language of the universe. Everything has vibration - from our thoughts, emotions and feelings, to the sounds we hear (and don’t hear) and the electromagnetic spectrum which contains the light and colors we see (and don’t see).

Over the past two decades, organizational structure, governance and capacities have undergone critical examination, but largely remain bureaucratic. In order to thrive in the 21st century, organizations must go beyond examination and experimentation into application. New technologies, globalization, voluminous cross-platform-multi-channeled information, and rapidly changing market-social-economic-political conditions are requiring the application of dynamic whole-systems organizational…Continue

This dream is not about change. It is not about fixing the old system with the same mindset, tools and behavior that created the…Continue
