It Will Politically Change The Way We Do Things
The minute you make up your mind that the way you see things makes a difference, it will make a difference in the way you see things — and do things.
The above quote has been a theme of my writing for ten years about “The Process of Illumination”, describing a process of illuminating, understanding and expanding our collective worldview one worldview at a time. I believe that we, the American people are beginning to see that the way we see things makes a difference. That belief is the reason for this blog.
The way you see things is important to me and the way I see things is important to you because the way we see things has consequences for everyone and the planet. Ten years ago most people agreed that the direction the world was heading was not where they wanted to go. But they apparently didn’t see that changing direction was up to them, or they didn’t see change was possible, or they didn’t see how they could make a difference. This was a case of “the way you see the problem IS the problem”
Today, even more people believe that the direction America is heading is not where they want to go. And it seems that recently many people are beginning to see that the solution to changing direction is up to them. Since the way we see things determines the way we do things, this is good news. What we the people do and don’t do, in todays world of turmoil, surly will have important consequences for everyone and the planet.
I believe expanding our collective worldview is beginning to happen. We are beginning to make up our minds that the way we see thigs makes a difference. And this makes a difference in what we do and don’t do. Changing the direction American is heading could depend on a collective worldview of we the people making up our minds.
Our minds are the source, and properly directed, the solution to all our problems. The Dalai Lama
A small group of people changing the way they see things could become a large group of people, which could become a majority. A majority of people making up their minds that the way they see things makes a difference — can make a difference.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
