A different theory of change

All masterplans failed me. Fortunately, and unavoidably. When I was a pre-teen, my mom’s master plan for me was that I should become a doctor or a lawyer. …

Yesterday afternoon, I started a 1-person Liberation Front. The liberation is from the oppressive urgency of responding immediately to the multitude of towering tasks of connecting dots in a “collective wisdom” ecosystem. …

The more I tune in

with the miraculous intelligence

of the organs and cells of my body,

the more waves of awe and gratitude arise ~

gratitude to all the ancestors,

who have been cultivating it

since the Big Bang.

If I am not

only my body, my thoughts, my emotions, and sensation,

what I really am?

What else than a nexus of the same undivided life

that is connecting everything within

and flowing through the web of my relationships

from which it composes me without?

When death would take me out,

I will outsmart it by feeding the web

with enlivening cross-links,

so that the “I” can go

and life can keep flowing through it, uninterrupted.

The first wood bud of the Spring on the pear tree in our garden, in Brighton.

The “wood bud moment” of human organizing is when the meme of a generative & transformative initiative jumps from one mind to another, where it is absorbed by a fertile terrain.

I think of an initiative as generative when it generates more collective energy than it consumes. The initiative is…

Birthdays are not only for blowing out the candles, receiving cards, and celebrating with family and friends. In some of the ancient wisdom traditions, they’re also privileged times for vision quest, personal ceremony, and other forms of introspection.

When I’m writing from off the top of my head, what comes through, most frequently, is ephemera and throw-away phrases with very short shelf-life.

When I’m writing from my soul, it’s like being in a conversation. It can be a conversation with a friend, my wife, children, an inspiring stranger…

A foundational myth is being born in our time.

It is the planetary journey towards a new world of being,

an expedition into our interconnectedness in a higher harmony.

To fulfill itself, the energy of the Myth

is seeking to marry the energy of the Method for collective awakening.

Change is happening. For better or worse. For better and worse.

Change is a fact of life. Trying to make it happen is futile or worse, given the unintended consequences of any linear, corrective action in a complex and volatile world.

I’m a recovering change-maker. Not only that, but I…

More contagious than the virus itself…

A reality show in which hundreds of people are dying in remote countries due to an unabated viral infection is no fun. Much less so when the virus has reached the town where I live.

Listening to people “frustrated with developmental stages,” I’ve just realized:

Only when the energy of the Green wave carries itself to its peak, only then will start the Teal wave emerging and growing the next stage of human consciousness into a society-shaping force.

Early- and middle-Green are threatened by the perceived hierarchical tendency in “stages of development.”

Early-stage Teal can be trapped in fighting back and calling them the “mean Green meme.”

Surfing all waves, maturing Teal will embrace and support Green and work on creating the conditions for its trajectory to complete itself.

In fact, when that work appears, it is one of the signs of maturing, embodied Teal that previously existed mostly in the cognitive realm.
