|Our society is moving rapidly into a new era where the industrial-age
systems are beginning to break down. Have you noticed how rapidly
our economic climate is shifting? Mega-corporations are losing
billions and laying off tens of thousands regularly; our government
struggles to maintain an obsolete Social Security system; and
our bank system has lost its credibility. We can react to these
changes with fear, dread and blame, or we can experience these
changes as an opportunity to grow as a culture. These systems
functioned as our "institutional parents" and were entrusted to
care for us for our entire lifetime. Out of the failures of these
systems, new systems and technologies are arising to empower individuals
to create their own prosperity, health, and security.
These new systems provide an opportunity for us to take personal
responsibility for our actions and our well-being. Our society
has an opportunity to move out of a collective adolescence and
to create a world where security comes from a connection with
our own Source--our own Creative Power.
We are beginning to focus our collective energy into projects
that sustain a higher quality of life for each of us and for the
planet. As we realize that we are all intimately connected in
a living ecosystem, we will create an enlightened planetary civilization
that operates out of a sense of global responsibility. A cooperative
civilization -- one focused on common concerns -- asks, "What
would we like to accomplish?" and gets down to the business of
co-creating a future of prosperity and abundance.
In the holistic community in Dallas, I see a group of people that
believe in a better future, and are joyfully creating it in the
present. I think you'll find this issue of The Holistic Networker to be Dallas' best source of new ideas and opportunities.
