He writes today...
Our world right now is in a state of worrisome turbulence and chaos. If we are to achieve any measure of success in creating a more peaceful, just, sustainable, and healthy planet, it will require more than the participation of governments and businesses.
We'll need a critical mass of consciousness.
To any observer, it’s obvious that the United Nations is struggling to fulfill its declared Millennium Development Goals:
Eradicate extreme poverty
Achieve universal primary education
Promote gender equality and empower women
Reduce child mortality
Improve maternal health
Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
Ensure environmental sustainably (center to our efforts)
Develop a global partnership for development
I feel that the only solution is the creation of networks of creativity and “love in action.” A social network like LinkedIn is the perfect place for groups to organize this solution, through a process that is creative and self-organizing. New ideas would be offered, and as people backed them with time, effort, and funds, the solutions would become self-organizing – they would grow along natural lines of enthusiasm and support, bypassing blocks imposed by special interests and nationalism.
A dynamic network can be initiated by any community leader who has passion and commitment to create a better world. There would be an initiation fee to join the network, and each member would be responsible for bringing two other members to the network with similar resources and commitment. This would create a financially sustainable model.
The banking and financial transactions would be transparent and published weekly on the Internet. Projects and NGOS (non-government organizations) would be identified by the network for support, and then a democratic vote by all network members would determine which projects are to be funded. A simple notation such as a like would suffice as a vote in favor.
A critical mass of people need to be engaged in the process while also undergoing personal transformation through spiritual practices of every kind.
Critical Mass can change the world and it starts with YOU!
If this idea resonates with anyone reading this article, I would be happy to serve as a convener of the process. My personal strengths as determined by The Gallup Organization’s Strength Finder process are:
In this phase of my life and career, I feel that I can best use my resources to help create a critical mass of consciousness for personal transformation that will ultimately lead to social and global transformation. So my big idea is to reach 100 million people to be the change that they want to see in the world. Anyone wishing to join this network should notify me as well as make any suggestions on my page.
