No more prizes for forecasting the rain; only prizes for building the ark. Let's get it done!
Authentic evolutionary leaders are guided by their inner spiritual practice, lead with their heart, live by their values everyday, and maintain a beginner’s mind of teachability, receptivity and humility, ever available to new insights and revelations.
If we take some deep breaths, let go of our agenda, and open up to the presence of love, the spirit of guidance will let us know how to participate in creating—and enjoying—a future that works for us all.
As we live the greatest shift in power, wealth, technology and beliefs the world has ever seen, our personal choices of cooperation and sharing become our collective answer to the crises of our shift. This Evolutionary Leadership group is simply giving a name and a focus to the cooperative movement that is emerging spontaneously throughout the world.
Conscious business leaders understand that as the most powerful institution in society, business must assume responsibility for the whole—the planet itself, and all its people and creatures.
We are standing at a major crossroads in human history. We are being called to evolve to a higher level of consciousness, cooperation and co-creation of a world that works for everyone and all life forms. If we fail to answer that call, we risk the total destruction of all life on the planet.
I would like to invite people to engage in conscious conversations where, through heart-centered listening and being truly present in the moment, a deeper more authentic connection occurs.
When we face mounting challenges and overwhelming crises, we are tempted to see philosophy as a luxury item that we can no longer afford. It’s not! In fact, in the face of overwhelming difficulties, philosophy, which is the pursuit of truth, becomes more important, not less.
The universe has become self aware within us. We have the responsibility to be stewards of its future evolution.
Within each individual is the indivisible. Our work is to find the Song of Our Heart and to courageously bring it to the world with audacity, imagination, passion and grace. And, through engaging our mojo, inspire others to do the same. Now that's how we change the world; one swinging heart at a time!
In our time, when so many people are looking for ways to make the world a better place, more and more of us are going to have to be spiritual heroes: to be willing, in all our imperfection, to be exemplars of what’s possible and to stand for spirit in a disbelieving world.
Mutual respect, cooperation and collaboration among individuals, communities and organizations of like-minded people world-wide can collectively create enough conscious coherence to form a "critical mass" to shift the consciousness of the planet.
Without a doubt, we are living in the most important time in human history. The very future of life on our planet is dependent upon the individual and collective awakening of each one of us.
Everything in our world is sacred and interconnected - and we're in the midst of an epochal shift to recognizing that truth in every realm of human endeavor. It's a magnificent time to be alive and participate in this evolutionary leap.
Reality is my God and integrity is my religion. Scientific, historic, and cross-cultural evidence is where I go for guidance and inspiration—not ancient texts or mythic beliefs. My ultimate commitment is to grow in right relationship to reality and assist others and our species in doing the same.
If we want to get back to the garden, we have to become the gardeners.This is the secret door to paradise – co-creativity –humans and nature partnering as artists to bring the world of living beauty into ever fresh forms for the shared sacrament of pure enjoyment.
As we humans learn to live in a living universe, awakening our capacity for collective consciousness is our most critical and creative challenge.
To be/work/love from a place of true and pure authenticity catalyzes a state of grace beyond linear explanation. It’s a kind of spiritual alchemy... When all stops at the center. When the noise of material life fades and all distracted motivations dissolve... In this place, one sees clearly and choices cannot help but be authentic. You stand at the cocreative edge and hold hands with the universe.
All through the ages our great wisdom teachers - our evolutionary elders - have issued a call to humanity to fulfill our evolutionary destiny through an awakening of consciousness. This global call to conscious evolution fulfills our individual and collective maturation as humans and marks our advance to sustainable cultures and the flourishing of our human family. We have arrived at our moment of choice.
The future of business will be forged by those brave enough to embrace a new union of formerly rival ideas: conscience and commerce; meaning and measure; tolerance and conviction…..logic and love.
Higher levels of consciousness are easy terms to roll off our lips yet is most recognized in another by their presence. That presence can best be felt by those who are able to be in this world yet cut through what distracts others.
And the ancient heroic ones offered the torch and said "make the world better." Those who receive the fire embark on a profound journey to greater self knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and soul growth.
To meet the tough global, integrated challenges of today, we urgently need to raise the level of our collective leadership. We need to increase both our global intelligence (mind) and our planetary empathy (heart) in order to a give birth to a just and sustainable civilization.
The call of this moment and all moments is to seek the light and face the darkness without and within with an unflinching commitment to journey each day at least a little toward enlightenment – living in love, fearless, joyous and free – in service to this glorious and wounded world.
As difficult as things are, in many ways these are the best of times. We are called to surrender and to be carried over the falls of evolution into the oneness, holiness, solutions and love that wait for us far beyond what we know.
There is a radical need for a new natural philosophy based on our new knowledge of the cosmos, the world, the cross-cultural mix of knowledge and understanding, potential evolutionary directions, and our own emerging realities.
The only solution is our own conscious evolution.
If 'divide-and-rule' has been the major operating system of the last few hundred years, and has led us to the current crises that exist today -- perhaps 'connect-and-self-organize' is a way to a healthier, thriving, more just and balanced world at all levels: personal, interpersonal and systemic.
What joy, realizing the ever present great natural perfection of everything, just as it is! What pure relaxation, knowing ourselves to BE the unified field and power of natural intelligence itself ---- inseparably, spontaneously, acausally, timelessly, immutably, blissfully, infinitely expressing and collaborating in and as life --- as creative expressions, leaders and agents of compassionate wisdom, intrinsic ethics, and skillful means, in practical action for the benefit of all everywhere.
We are on the threshold of the greatest adventure in human history — conscious evolution! New-edge science offers a bold and hopeful vision of the next “holistic” stage of human civilization and what each of us can do to fully participate as co-creators of the world to come.
Knowing we co-create our own evolution calls us into the greatness of our beauty, wisdom, compassion, skill, grace and courage to live into a new story of what humanity can be.
I strongly believe that meaningful change in the Muslim world will take hold when Pragmatists—and not just moderates—are chosen to lead. In a predominantly tribal world Pragmatists can lead, moderates follow. My work is informed by Psychology at the Large Scale that designs for the emergence of healthy cultures.
Through the power of your heart’s intelligence you can move beyond your limitations into a new reality that allows you to become a more conscious co-creator and true custodian of the planet and its future.
The chaos in the environment is a reflection of the disorder in our minds and hearts (invironment).
The Evolutionary Leaders represent a New Perspective on the many ways in which the Human Collective can Serve to Enrich Humanity and the Environment as a Whole.
Through the evolution of consciousness, we become partners with spirit in the grand pageant of development wherein our personal evolution is directly linked with our participation in social evolution.
For hundreds of years we have acted against nature by defining ourselves as separate from our world. What is now called for, in the midst of the continuing crises in our current way of life, are measures far more radical than individual instances of economic, political or ecological reform. We now require nothing less than a revolution in our thinking, in our entire paradigm.
Small acts of generosity elegantly reduce our mental footprint. It is that internal simplicity that will seed a cultural shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, isolation to community, and scarcity to abundance.
People of the world who hear the Call to Consciousness acknowledge that we are called upon to move from limited thinking to the emerging awareness of our inherent unity. Yet it is our future generations who will BE and live this. May we help be their WAY and support their future of evolutionary leadership in this revolution of social consciousness.
The times we live in are calling us all to a new level of love and service. What a joy to answer this call together!
In the end the human story is a healing story, and Earth's whole system healing will be an initiation into an even greater story of cosmic unfolding.
We live in a time when evolution demands a convergence of our inner work, our outer work, and our networks. A meta-sangha is beginning to form, in which teachers and students and activists are surrendering ego to birth a much-needed “just-in-time” transformation of human culture.
What the world needs now are Evolutionaries, committed activists and advocates, positive agents of change, interested in conscious evolution, who recognize the urgent need for our own culture to evolve, and for each of us to play a positive role in that outcome.
The brave are fearless, but the benevolent are invincible.
The struggle for justice is as old as tyranny itself, and the longing for a world guided by love is as deep as the human heart. Thank you for joining in the ancient struggle to build a new world.
The next great frontier is not outer space, but inner space: research and development into the untapped potentials of human consciousness.
If bacteria could learn to cooperate without benefit of heart or brain, surely we humans should be able to as well.
When we start to truly connect with the wisdom within ourselves, as well as the wisdom that lies beyond us, a shift starts to happen. I believe the time has come for individuals and organizations awakening to this balance to come together in love and power, to join hands in this movement, and to collectively create a positive future together.
Not already knowing is a quality that is inherent in the evolutionary perspective, because we intuit that entirely new ways of seeing, being and acting are possible. This intuition gives us the freedom to let go of attachment to the way things are and open ourselves up to new possibilities.
A thousand difficulties doesn’t need to make one doubt. Let your life reflect the ever emerging good for all the world to see.
“We put ourselves in the only place of immediate, inexhaustible benefit, each one of us, united together in the invisible fabric of invincible, seamless solidarity — open intelligence” (awareness, clarity, nature’s own intelligence, implicate order, Tao source consciousness, God....).” --Candice O’Denver
Each one of us faces questions in all spheres of our lives; and yet the answer to every question lies within our hearts, and is accessible through stillness and love.
When you let go of trying to get more of what you don't really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, it expands.
To become evolutionary in one’s thinking one needs to believe that more is possible. It’s about moving forward and not only activating one’s highest potential but taking it a step beyond that to a zone where true evolution takes place.
We all want to be a force for positive change. Yet, until we actually make the choice for care over indifference, faith over control, humility over ego, and uncertainty over certainty, we will be less than effective. Becoming a true evolutionary-- one who is able to midwife the unmanifest potentials of life into the manifest world, requires great character, commitment and courage.
