All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
– Arthur Schopenhauer
My vision, shared below, is not yet “true” – not yet in form – in my current reflection of reality. I hesitate to share it because it could be seen as science fiction-fantasy, or my own brand of insanity, or perhaps it could be our future. It may not unfold as I’ve pictured it – it may be even better – but its meaning for me is contained in its essence. I hold it as a reference point for a possible, future self-evident truth. Co-created in an inspired state, it is described in four iterations: local, regional, national, and global/galactic.
My vision for every client I coach, and each coaching conversation I have, is that they see their own magic, that they touch something amazing within themselves to know without question that what they are made of at their core is finer than the purest gold, the most luxurious silk, or the finest diamond.
If you realized how beautiful you are, you would fall at your own feet.
– Byron Katie
I want whoever is sitting in front of me to experience their hearts melting because they’ve seen their own divinity and awakened their own deeply held vision to clearly know of the gift they bring to the world, whatever it may be. Then from that profound experience, they can go forth and freely give their gift fueled by their unwavering knowing of themselves, their own true value, and their connection to their higher power, whatever they may call it. They will have experienced their true self and from that experience and awareness, will be free to live in the highest authentic expression of their life. That’s my hope for each coaching session I do. Will we realize that in each conversation? Maybe not. But maybe, and that’s our goal.
What will the impact be of more and more people realizing what enlivens them, moving into that and giving the gift they bring, making the world a better place? What will happen when one person’s awakening gives others the permission they themselves need to in turn awaken? What will the result be as that goodness spreads and pays itself forward? What will be the impact of my work and the work of others, of one person at a time, one after another, having breakthrough coaching sessions, or reading inspiring books or blogs, or listening to podcasts, becoming enlivened and inspired, moving into the joy of their greatest contribution to their family, their community, their workplace, their country, or their world? What will be the impact of that spreading outward in organic, grassroots, inspired sea change? In my vision, I see amazing abundance, wonderful upliftment, overflowing joy spreading – a rebirth, an irresistible regional healing and renaissance impacting all areas of life.
What will the impact be of more and more communities experiencing rebirth, awakening, and inspiration? What will the effect be of communities emerging into harmony, acceptance, and love? What will happen when joy creates efficiency, effectiveness, and flow? What will happen when other communities see the benefits and want to discover the same flow and start implementing their own inspired systems, processes, behaviors, and ways of being? What will happen when the inspiration and joy scale across region after region to affect an entire nation? What will happen when that nation no longer needs to prove itself in competition with other nations but is simply creative, powerful, and aligned in integrity out of grounded, harmonious expression of life? What will happen when flow, joy, and consciousness create unparalleled ease, when integrity of government is the natural outcome and grassroots collaboration swells into automatic, joyful, creative expression of life? What will happen when the highest of art, science, consciousness, and spirituality align and merge into a foundational understanding so profound that its enabling power lifts all inhabitants into states of unparalleled inspiration and ineffable joy? That nation’s life and abundance will overflow and its bountiful way of being and coexistence will automatically prevail over other nations divided against themselves. A complete and whole nation will be impervious to less evolved paradigms, less inspired ways to life.
Global / Galactic
What will happen when the energy, bounty, and consciousness of nations spread to a tipping point, overtaking all the nations of the world? Will it be the dawn of a truly remarkable new age more amazing than our wildest dreams? What if we’re then living in full awareness of our deep interconnectedness, of the knowledge of our oneness with each other and all that is? Will it not mean that our world has become a beacon of light for our neighborhood of the galaxy? What energy and essence will we be emanating to our galactic neighbors? Will our planet now actually be a generator? Will we, for the first time, be giving back, contributing as an uplifted world to the consciousness of the Universe itself? What if, in our recognition of our connectedness and our Oneness, our world has become an access portal to God, in full connectedness to Creation? What if, in our amazing evolution as a world, in our liberating ourselves of all disconnection, strife, and conflict, we become a synergized, illuminated planet, that by such a profound change in connected consciousness, we become a portal to the deepest essence of Creation, a transcended planet, and our world reverberates throughout the Universe as a vortex to God?
Did I not warn you: fantasy, insanity, or future?
This is my inspired view of what our world might be – a prototypical vision perhaps unlike anything you’ve ever heard or read. I realize it might be egotistical to think my version of “the future” is the best possible future for all concerned. I’m open to it being different, even better. I’m sharing it here to help bring the essence of it into form. Reality is created twice: first in our dreams, hearts, and minds; and second in our physicality according to the vision deeply held within us.
Let us create a compelling vision that is bold yet simple, communicate it clearly and consistently, then share, build, and synergize it, together with other bold, courageous, creative people. It then cannot help but come to pass.
