Dr. Seuss Has It Right!

onbeyondzebraimage

We are undoubtedly in the throes of huge change these days. As I have mentioned in previous posts, the ‘armageddon’-like lore around 2012 is ubiquitous and inescapable. Also inescapable is the fear and visceral survival emotions that are surfacing as we move through this process of change. The grip is powerful and requires the greatest vigilance to maintain some semblance of uprightness in its presence.

Our latest gambling adventure offered one such moment and illustrates how we can become caught up in this grip so easily!  Unlike our last exquisite celebration, this experience (losing)  became a doorway for all the fear, lack and self-flagellation floating in the collective consciousness to spew from my mouth.  The darkness of that focus engendered a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness. It made me consider that the old adage “Money is the root of all evil” is true – for we are enslaved to its presence, its value and we measure our own value by the amount of it we have in our lives – the more we have, the happier and more secure we are taught to believe we will feel. Without money we will not survive! Our instinctual behavior these days is to ‘hunker down’,  weather the economic downturn and eventually resume life as it was…the status quo to which we are indentured and prostituted…consuming to feel better, happier and  grow our personal bubble of survival even at enormous cost to our planet.

Then, as Wisdom always seems to do, I discovered a very interesting and uplifting article in Shift magazine, the monthly publication of Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) entitled: The Adaptive Organization which can just as easily apply to The Adaptive Organism (we humans being one of those organisms !) It speaks of the inevitability of change that occurs both in nature and in human systems. This evolutionary impulse is precipitated by strain (an engineering term referring to tension created within structures or functions that result from destabilizing events).  That we are in the midst of a destabilizing event of global proportions is irrefutable. The notion is proffered in this article that embracing change and learning from it is the next  adaptive step we must take. The linear, broken system we cling to (the status quo we scramble to return to) –our monetary system, our education system, our isolated, individualistic values  no longer are able to respond to the complexities of our present circumstances.

Chaos, Opportunity and the Power in Change

from Kellie:

We just returned from a conference called Families in Global Transition where we presented a workshop on how Voice Dialogue and its transformative process is supportive to families and individuals who spend the better part of their lives as global nomads – moving from posting to posting either in military, missionary or corporate work environments. The effects on all family members is substantial and this conference has been providing essential resources for the past 11 years to assist, listen and support adjusting to unfamiliar cultures as well as repatriation when the tour of duty is over. We were honored to be offering a new approach that clearly (our perspective) provided another tool for grappling with the monumental changes that ensue when relocation is a ‘normal’ life occurrence. As we proceeded with our presentation, the question arose about the category of our coaching – was it coaching or therapy? On the surface, it was an innocent enough inquiry but an answer was not readily available nor was it anything we had even considered as significant to our message. Yet this one question still perturbs and in the search for a  succinct response, much has emerged. From that one item, a plethora of further questions have surfaced: Continue reading

Save this day for future reference!

from Kellie:

“Escaping” to Black Hawk ( a gambling casino village nestled in the mountains west of Denver) seemed like just that – an escape from the To Do list of our business and from the collective consciousness of fear and constriction that is so predominant these days. The decision to ‘go play’ had been preceded by a whiny rant that ended with “I give up! I just give up! I am tired of DOING!!” So it was that we found ourselves driving through the mountain vistas enroute to our playground….fugitives on the lam sensing freedom with every mile traversed. It felt good to drive that meditative drive through some pretty spectacular country. I felt the smile emerge from the inside out as I took a deep breath of release.

That is how the day began ….. how it ended exceeded our wildest imaginings! Continue reading
