Change the World?

4 Dec

Can we change the world? Or is it our perspective that needs changing? I created this presentation to try to clarify for myself how my external world and internal world are elegantly fused and insanely intertwined. How change in ‘my’ world affects change in the ‘outside’ world…

As we change our mind, practice a higher vibration, fall in love with our intimate beautiful selves, I believe that the world will reflect our attitude right back to us. All things change when we do. 
I’ve used images and words to help shift conscious awareness from local to universal and back again. Let me know what you think. 
I’ve also included the meditation to be read at Slide 9 ( yep – old school- but what do you call it if not a ‘slide’?!) click the link at the very end for the meditation.

This was our discussion last night at class – a slide show on changing the world.

Whew…three weeks since our last Monday night class. Snow days, Chicago film screenings, lots of happenings! 

Great to be together in the same space again  : ) 

Much love,

In the world of system theory, I am a ‘flow-through’. Energy, information and matter flows into me and is transformed through my experiences and intention as it continues on its way. I am amazed by this, but it makes me think how often I misuse the tremendous potential I hold if this is true.

More often than not, I falter around in my little version of myself as ‘self-world’. I can’t see anything beyond myself, or others with whom I identify, and I put all my energy and effort into protecting my beliefs, my beloveds and the ‘life’ I have precariously carved out for myself. I use my capacity for thinking and desire to create myriad levels of separation; ‘me vs. ‘them’. I know where I stand, right? I know who I am.

Yet, as you read these words, and the concepts they contain, a part of me extends into you. The ‘process’ that is me has extended far beyond my skin, into the cortex of your brain. I have flowed right into you. How do you separate me from you? Or you from those around you? This is the much larger ‘selfness’ of which I am becoming aware. I find myself more often than not re- experiencing the world as my extended self and its story as my extended story.

But after all, I have a place in this world, my own identity and a separateness that defines ‘who-I-am’. –or do I?  Do I need separation to belong? Or can I just pull up a chair and join the family?

And now that I know that how I choose to live my life affects you, will I choose to give you more chaos or bless you with harmony? I used to think that I was only accountable for the transformation of myself, but now it seems that to some degree, although not my intention, I find myself accountable for the transformation of my world as well.
