| | I've wanted to do this for some time now.
As I was reading the blog post by Steve I recalled the mission statement of a spiritual center I go to here in San Diego called UNITY.
"Inspiring personal greatness and transforming our world with love"
The part that always got me was the "transforming our world with love" part.
I made an internal decision about 2 years ago that I was going to change this world (in as massive of a way as possible) for the better. When I look back at who I was and how I felt as a child and teenager, I realize now that I have always felt that way. Becoming an adult and going through the changes and inherent stresses that seem to commonly accompany that seemed to block that natural feeling that I have had since as far back as I can remember.
I want to change this world, however that may be (as this is still unfolding for me) in a MASSIVE way.
I know that even literally helping your neighbor will effect positive change in the world, and I realize that if everyone did this simultaneously, that it would actually work. But this is not going to happen anytime soon and I have a tugging feeling to change things on a bigger scale.
I have been effectively independent for a long time and started a business in the middle of the recession, while losing my house, without a job or any start-up capitol. But I realize that in order for my desires to come to fruition, I need to become effectively interdependent (thanks 7 habits).
I would love to do what was proposed in the blog by Steve.
My question is: Who is going to take the reins and lead the way? I understand their may be many leadership positions that would form as time went on, but who is REALLY going to start this and give it the systems it needs for structure and consistency.
It's easy to talk about an idea. It's a whole other thing to actually get it going and maintain it.
