How I See The World
I believe we live in a time of great global transformation...
- I believe that we are seeing and will continue to witness an unprecedented level of challenge for our planet and our world in our lifetimes, and that this challenge also presents us with an unparalleled transformative opportunity.
- I believe that humanity has a chance - RIGHT NOW - to wake up, remember our sacred connection to the web of life, and fulfill our original instructions - each one of us individually and also collectively as a whole.
- I believe that the best way to meet this moment is for to remember our true nature as connected, relational beings, and for each for us to fully embody our gifts as a contribution to "the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible."
- I believe that "We were born into Beauty, As Beauty, for Joyful Life,", and that it is possible to live our lives, individually and collectively, in a way that brings more beauty, joy, peace, connection, and prosperity for all.
