Seeing the Seer Series: How Good is Your Vision?
The first event was SUPERB!!!
I believe that 2013 is the year that people, not just here but all over the world, can begin living conscious lives of bliss, peace, contentment, love, and freedom. These things are not the products of our fate — they are our divine birthright.
Consider the following poem
The Paradox of Our Age is….
We have taller buildings but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
we spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy it less;
we have bigger houses and smaller families;
more conveniences, yet less time;
we have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgment;
more experts, yet more problems;
more medicine, but less wellness;
we take more vitamins but see fewer results.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values;
we fly in faster planes to arrive there quicker, to do less and return sooner;
we sign more contracts only to realize fewer profits;
we talk too much, love too seldom, and lie too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve added years to life not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We’ve conquered outer space but not inner space;
we’ve done larger things, but not better things;
we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less;
plan more, but accomplish less;
we make faster planes, but longer lines;
we learned to rush, but not to wait;
we have more weapons, but less peace;
higher incomes, but lower morals;
more parties, but less fun;
more food, but less appeasement;
more acquaintances, but fewer friends;
more effort, but less success.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication;
drive smaller cars that have bigger problems;
build larger factories that produce less.
We’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;
tall men, but short character;
steep in profits, but shallow relationships.
These are times of world peace, but domestic warfare;
more leisure and less fun;
higher postage, but slower mail;
more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; t
hese are times of fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, cartridge living, throw-away morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to prevent, quiet or kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
Indeed, these are the times!
No longer must we choose to make this paradox our reality.
How WE choose to live is OUR choice — and the world is our mirror. The moment we decide to change ourselves — the moment we decide that we’re not going to accept anything less than the full fulfillment of our life’s purpose: peace, freedom, contentment, love, and bliss — this will be the moment OUR entire world changes… the next the world will change.
I know all the people involved in this project feel the same way too. They understand that this isn’t about a weekend workshop or a fun little talk on a saturday…
It’s about COMMUNITY.
It’s about linking together people who CARE to SUPPORT one another. To live in unconditional love and not appraisal of our performance. To be who and what we are — without needing to change that to fit into anyone else’s graces. To be perfect and accepted, exactly as we are… and to be supported in the process.
So tell me: what’s your vision like? What’s your dream?
If it’s anything like ours, welcome to the family 🙂
