Why “The Shift”?

Because...

  1. 1.Current life conditions are leading to disaster for all life on earth.

  2. 2.Old thinking isn’t going to save us. We need a global mind-shift.

  3. 3.Moving in a different direction is our only chance to survive and flourish.

  4. 4. Not only must we shift, we must proceed with the speed, money and energy equivalent to WWII’s armament campaign. 

“In a time of crisis, pressures mount for Life to take care of itself—to evolve, to awaken and do what needs to be done to survive and flourish.”

And, as individuals get well, society gets better.”

Ann Wilson Schaff

Our beliefs, habits, and “comfort zone” all reinforce the population explosion.

text Selling Out American Children by John Walsh

Walsh wrote; Too often what parents are trying to teach their children contradicts what they are doing.” And children learn by watching what we do - not by what we say. Until we get honest about that we’ll keep on doing what we’ve always been doing, and that will not lead to a brighter future.
