A vision for the future of our planet.

Pierre Teilhard deChardin
Activation of Energy

The Shift of the Ages is a prophesized transition from an age of scarcity, domination and division to one of abundance, cooperation and unity. Humanity will learn to operate and co-create our world with awareness, balance and deliberation. A world of harmony and peace amongst nations, races, genders, ideologies and religions.

A world where there is acceptance by all of the many paths available for the human spirit to realize its highest potential through art, music, culture, education, science, religion, adventure and joyous living.

A world where all life on Planet Earth lives in balance, harmony and respect.

A world where perfect health, well-being, abundance and profound inner peace are the norm amongst our brothers and sisters of Planet Earth.

A world where science and technology mature to serve the planet in wholesome, productive and abundant ways that feed, clothe, house and nourish the body and spirit of the world's populations, while nurturing Planet Earth's pristine nature.

A world where sustainable communities are linked together by worthy causes bringing intelligence, wisdom, compassion, sustenance, spirit, and a sense of belonging and unity to everyone.

A world where effective government abides by the principles of Divine Harmony and operates from a vision of humanity's greater purpose.

A world where the people of Planet Earth act as the single being that they are, with vision, intent and conscious creativity while simultaneously honoring and nurturing the Divine Individuality of each member from birth through wholesome education and a holistically-oriented social and economic structure.

A world where all life on Planet Earth joins in a single song of praise and gratitude and reaches out to the heavens for exploration, connection and adventure.

 I believe that as the dreamers of this dream this vision can become our reality. We are the change we wish to see.

Kahlil Gibran on Beauty

On Beauty
 Kahlil Gibran

Where shall you seek beauty, and how shall you find her unless she herself be your way and your guide?
And how shall you speak of her except she be the weaver of your speech?

The aggrieved and the injured say, "Beauty is kind and gentle.
Like a young mother half-shy of her own glory she walks among us."
And the passionate say, "Nay, beauty is a thing of might and dread.
Like the tempest she shakes the earth beneath us and the sky above us."

The tired and the weary say, "Beauty is of soft whisperings. She speaks in our spirit.
Her voice yields to our silences like a faint light that quivers in fear of the shadow."
But the restless say, "We have heard her shouting among the mountains,
And with her cries came the sound of hoofs, and the beating of wings and the roaring of lions."

At night the watchmen of the city say, "Beauty shall rise with the dawn from the east."
And at noontide the toilers and the wayfarers say,
"We have seen her leaning over the earth from the windows of the sunset."

In winter say the snow-bound, "She shall come with the spring leaping upon the hills." 
And in the summer heat the reapers say, 
"We have seen her dancing with the autumn leaves, 
and we saw a drift of snow in her hair."
All these things have you said of beauty, 
Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied,
And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. 
It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth,
But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted.

It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear,
But rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears.
It is not the sap within the furrowed bark, nor a wing attached to a claw,
But rather a garden for ever in bloom and a flock of angels for ever in flight.

People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.
