When it comes to vision, just do it!

There is a sentiment that consistently comes up in my conversations lately. People have ideas, they have visions for something better, they have intentions… and they wonder how to get there from here. My answer is very often, “Just do it. It’s not that complicated.”

The marks of a progressing civilization

When I desire the happiness in our children, and mark our progress as humanity by that, I am not referring to children as never crying. I am not ruling out other marks of a progressive society, but merely desiring a shift in priority. What does our society claim as proof of our progression? Happiness is something more than self-satisfied, self-interested, and self-serving. It something greater than an innocent or unaware naivety.

No Pressure for climate change… or is there?

Spirituality starts with nature. Without a relationship there, without a realization of our dependence on the planet, it is too easy for our values to get out of sync. As we seek to live in sustainable (even additive!) community, it is paramount that the consideration of our earth is remembered as part of that community.
