'The Biggest Secret of Life' ~ YouTube video by Gregg Braden.... followed by a quote from Barbara Marx Hubbard.
How do we perceive crises? I love how Barbara names it!
"The crises of our time are evolutionary drivers that spur us to evolve beyond where we are today. Right now our whole social system is withering, leadership is faltering and failing, and problems are escalating exponentially, giving us very little time to change. At the same moment, millions of pioneering souls are seeking a higher order of life, that is, NEW STRUCTURES and not just new projects. They are searching out or they are creating new systems and innovations in health, education, environment, energy, business. In the great 13.7-billion-year tradition of nature itself, these innovations are creating the conditions for an evolutionary leap. They are creating what the complexity theorists call a 'strange attractor' toward a higher order culture. This attractor - which offers greater consciousness, freedom and compassion - is emerging subtly everywhere, but is not yet coordinated, connected or visible. We have not yet 'connected the dots.'"
