Are You Building A New Paradigm During Transformational Shift?
The transformational shift occurring on the planet is accelerating. Do you see it? Feel it? Know it? I have noticed there are new structures emerging. As old unsustainable paradigms are falling away, new components are taking priority.
For instance, have you noticed how transparent the world has become? Behaviors that had previously been covered up obscured or even acceptable are now on display for the world to see. Viral on the internet are acts of aggression towards people in public and private spaces, infidelity in relationships, illegal business practices, institutional corruption, and environmental dumping.
The old paradigm of protecting and developing our own interests often at the expense of others, scarcity mentality, division and separation, and power over another are all becoming exposed and unacceptable. Replacing that viewpoint is one of transparency, collaboration, honoring diversity, holism, mutual accountability, integrity, authenticity, and interconnection. Transformation can be terrifying and exhilarating as we navigate our personal life, relationships, organizations, families, communities, and global community as new rules are being created a moment to moment.
Are You Focusing on a New Paradigm?
Is your focus on what is disintegrating or what is emerging?
There is a story describing the power of our intention and attention.
“The Wolves Within”
An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, let me tell you a story.
I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times. He continued, it is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.
But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.
Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit. The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked, which one wins, Grandfather? The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, the one I feed.
Building New Paradigm Together
As we experience the acceleration of this shift in the world, we remind each other to share our gifts, talents, strengths, vision and creativity to contribute and build the new paradigm and world view. Does your vision contribute to evolving consciousness on the planet in such areas as healthcare, business, education, public policy, environment, government, human services, nutrition, global citizenship, laws, artistic expression, communication, financial markets, or fitness? Make time and space to connect with your inner passion and invite your unique expression into the world.
If you live in the twin cities and are interested in meeting to support each other in bringing your creative work into the world, consider joining us every other Tuesday from January to March for Manifesting Your Vision class.
