C1–The Shift In Action

Be thinking about YOUR role and what you could and want to do.

---------------------------------------------

The big picture illuminates how nature’s laws operate unerringly to bring about the way it is, whether we acknowledge that or not.

From a higher level of consciousness we can see the way things are, and from there rises hope, inspiration and possibility.

Intelligent guiding principles put us all on the same page where the shift work carries on – each playing a part, and together making the difference needed.

If we can do that, the possibility that we will survive and thrive looks pretty good.

An awakening, a rising, a revolution, a movement is growing and spreading silently across the world.”             Paul Hawkin

A movement of possibility from a higher perspective

One people. One family. One planet. One Chance.

Ordinary people taking the lead

We can’t wait for the people with big money, high positions and power to take the lead. Though they could and must play a part in this, more likely it’s going to be the work of tens of millions of people growing in awareness, making different choices, influencing public policy, electing the right officials, and innovating for the well-being of all life—a more just, compassionate, and sustainable world. The time is now. Every moment presents an opportunity.

Aliveness awakens the global heart

As you explore these pages, be thinking about what matches up with your passion, ability, and meaning as it relates to The Shift.

Though they could and must play a part in this, more likely it’s going to be the work of tens of millions of people growing in awareness, making different choices, influencing public policy, and inventing fresh approaches to build a just, compassionate, and sustainable world. One by one. Moment by moment.

The [positive] Shift in Action

Humanity’s shift will happen—whether it’s ugly, brutal and calamitous, or uplifting, humane and exciting. Our focus is on the latter path. The Shift is both personal and global; immediate and long term; spontaneous and thoughtful.

As it unfolds, the people with big money, high positions and power could and must play a part in it. But at this stage, leadership is coming mostly from the tens of millions of ordinary people growing in awareness, making different choices, influencing public policy, and inventing fresh approaches to build a just, compassionate, and sustainable world. One by one. Moment by moment.

Below are examples of various modes of shift activism:

Visioning • Creating • Organizing • Educating • Supporting.

Below are examples of various categories of shift concern:

EconomicEnvironment • Peace • Political • Social-Spiritual

WE CREATE THE POSSIBILITY

The Shift is upon us, and we are the Creators. What appears to be impossible, is possible when enough people are carrying out the vision of a world that works for the benefit of all Life. The Shift begs us to question and seek out the answers the Universe gives.

A massive people’s movement is spreading rapidly around the world

Paul Hawkin; “An awakening, a rising, a revolution, a movement is growing and spreading silently across the world.

It’s hard to recognize a great shift when you’re in the middle of it. The first grat shift was the Agriculture Revolution that began 10,000 years ago. The second great shift was the Industrial Revolution starting in mid 19th century. The Shift we’re in now is most important, because this time around all life is at stake.

A massive people’s movement is spreading rapidly around the world.

It’s individuals and organizations collectively making the difference


Here are five Life conditions that ought to be addressed by EVERYONE no matter what religion, economic status, political stance, location, race or job. Here are four daunting conditions:

  1. 1.We must learn how to live without fossil fuels, for they WILL run out shortly.                                    • Peak oil

  2. 2.We must learn how to live sustainably before Earth no longer can support life..                  • Sustainability

  3. 3.We must preserve quality of life, i.e. reduce pollution, toxicity and undernourishment.     • Quality of Life

  4. 4.We must abolish wars, (the great DETRACTOR from what we urgently need to accomplish.)      • Ending Wars

  5. 5.We must learn how to serve the larger, sustaining whole, as well as ourselves                           • Taming the ego 

“This is a civil rights movement, a human rights movement, an environ-mental movement, a democracy movement. It is the coming world. This movement doesn’t seek power. It seeks to decentralize power. It is conducive to life. It is humanity’s immune response to heal political disease, economic infection and ecological corruption.”

Paul Hawken speaking at a Bioneers Conference: An awakening, a rising, a revolution, a movement is growing and spreading silently across the world. It has no center, no leader and no central ideology.”

The Largest Movement in the History of Humankind

The greatest SHIFT

humankind has ever known 

“Aliveness” is the source of inspiration and intention behind the greatest SHIFT humankind has ever known. 


Paul Hawken describes the shift . . .

An awakening, a rising, a revolution, a movement is growing and spreading silently across the world. It has no center, no leader and no central ideology. This is a civil rights movement, a human rights movement, an environmental movement, a democracy movement. A movement of movements – it is the coming world…This movement doesn’t seek power. It seeks to decentralize power. It is conducive to life. It is humanity’s immune response to heal political disease, economic infection and ecological corruption...This Blessed Unrest is in us all.”     (watch)~Paul Hawken, Blessed Unrest

What Is Your Part In The Largest Movement in Humankind’s History?

 

It takes just enough” people to shift humanity

in a life sustaining direction.

How many people is “enough”, and how much power will it take? No one knows.

But, if too few participate, it simply will not happen.

The Third
Great Shift...

is far more important and crucial than either the Agriculture Revolution or the Industrial Revolution because now, ALL Life is at stake.

So, this Shift is a Planetary Project!

From a higher level of consciousness we see the way things are, and from there hope, inspiration, possibility and activism rise and spreads—creating a movement so large it cannot be stopped.

The question is always, how can we speed it up, work smarter, and be more relevant to what is needed to survive and thrive for the long term?

The only way to know is to do like they do at the NASCAR race tracks, “ladies and gentlemen—start your engines!
