IT’S (ALWAYS) YOUR DECISION

The drive to survive and thrive is a common bond rooted in our nature. And at no time in history has “The Shift for Life” been more critical than now.


No one here is saying what you “should” do. No one is recruiting you for a cause. And no one is claiming to possess the whole truth about anything. What you think about and do is your decision.


Hopefully, enough people will rise up to make the difference needed.

we are

One people, One family, One planet, with One Chance.

“We come together as brothers and sisters, not to blame, complain or demean, but to uplift, inspire and activate our individual and collective aliveness for the benefit and well-being of all life, including our own.
No ideology, religion, political persuasion, or socio-economic background separate us from this common purpose that bind us together as One.”

Are You Ready?

Behind “The Shift” are YOUR actions for “a more just, compassionate, spiritual fulfilling and sustainable world.”

(the Pachamama mission)

The Dalei Lama says, “Don’t struggle to make things other than they are.”

The moment is irreversible.

All you can do is choose your response to what is. And your choice brings about a new reality of YOUR making. And that’s powerful!

THE TRIM TAB FACTOR

In order to turn a large ship in a different direction, a small change in the trim tab will move the large rudder for making the turn. The “trim tab factor” is a metaphor for The Shift. If we’re smart, we will activate creative trim tabs for altering humanity’s errant course.

The Shift In Action

“Nothing so satisfies a life as knowing

                there is something to do,

                that one CAN do,
  and that is needed by the world at large.”

Philosopher William Hocking’s final words to humanity

“I BELIEVE YOU have the power to change the world”

“I believe ordinary people can do extraordinary things”

Think of these pages as grist for thinking how you might possibly serve “The Shift” more effectively than you are now. Examine your passions, abilities and purpose and match them up with what’s needed. How you participate is up to you.

Aliveness and Alignment

Like a single cell in our big toe has an interest in serving the toe AND the whole body at the same time - so too, a person has an interest in simultaneously serving the Self AND the Whole which sustains our lives. That’s how nature is designed to work. We either align with it, or continue in defiance toward unbearable catastrophic consequences. How far off course can we go before that happens?

For thousands of years, we’ve been moving and more and more off course–distancing ourselves from the Whole that sustains our lives.

To move back into alignment with nature’s universal and non-negotiable laws, humanity will have to “Shift” its course in order to survive and thrive long term. Getting back to our innate aliveness is the path for doing that.
