“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
― Richard Buckminster Fuller
OK the systems (political, economical and spiritual) in place now are pretty unworkable. More and more people are seeing naked Emperors (The Emperor’s New Clothes – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). What do most want to do? Tear down the wall, forcibly rip apart the old systems and leave in their place…well…surely almost anything must be better than this, right?
I like R Buckminster Fuller’s idea of building a newer better model but I believe we better get working on it because the old ones built on lies and greed and paranoia are falling apart quickly.)
Of course many people are working on new perspectives and new ways of being (Thrive Movie Going Free | Thrive among others). Tearing down old ways is relatively easy, building something new, now that’s a challenge. One I believe we’re all up for.
I hope everyone had an amazing Earth Day and got the chance to be out in nature for a bit today. I attended an amazing meditation group meditation workshop here in Vancouver run by Brad Morris of Cowabunga Meditations (http://cowabungalife.com/). Of course any day that starts with me walking the dogs out in the backyard barefoot by the garden tends to be pretty great. Much gratitude.
