I wanted to write you a different kind of note today...
It's an intense time in the world right now. Last night in the US we had our first presidential debates, California is having its worst fire season ever, and there is so much crazy going on. I wanted to reach out to you today and check in. How are you - truly??
I recently watched a documentary that I wanted to share with you. Social Dilemma was an incredibly eye-opening journey into the algorhythms of social media platforms and how our minds, lives, and world are being shaped by companies like Facebook, Twitter, etc. It got me looking in a totally different way at the impact of the enforced separation and digitization in the world right now.
Even though people can be challenging to be around at times... we require interaction. True interaction, actual conversations, and hey - even touch if we can get it!! We are social people and right now this very fundamental aspect of our nature is being controlled in so many different ways.
But the thing that keeps me moving, creating, choosing joy - is that I know I have choice. I know that nothing and nobody can control me, my mind, my life, my future. Now more than ever is a time for us to come together and create the future we would actually like to see.
I and some beautiful people on my team are going to be making phone calls to actually say hello!! To have conversations. For no reason at all - other than to create a world where separation cannot exist - and where technology does not dominate our interactions. I am asking for so much more in-person interaction these days - even if it's on the phone. And in person - YES!
I do not wish to live in a digitized world. I wish to live in a world where I can see your smile, hear your breath, hug you. Where we celebrate the absolute beauty of the earth and each other. Where difference & consciousness are our greatest global assets.
Now more than ever, we have to create it. If we don't - technology and corporate interest will.
So, my sweet, beautiful, phenomenal friends... what can we all choose today that will create a different world and a different future? There is no choice too small or insignificant. WE have the power to change things. The planet is asking for something so different right now. It truly is up to US to reach out to each other, interact, connect, engage, and create the future we would like to have.
Gary Douglas recently offered this question that I am asking every day:
What future would I like to have, that I am willing to create?
What do you know?
