Inspiring Your Authentic Week

Just do it!

Posted: 31 Mar 2008 02:04 AM CDT

We are in a race to the end of society.

Whether this is ‘end; as in purpose or ‘end’ as in termination is a choice we make every day.

When we are afraid we can be aggressive and violent. When we are at peace we are loving and collaborative.

It is a shame then that so much of our programming is for fear.

We face unprecedented challenges as a society – diminishing resources, climate change and fundamentalism (of any sort).

In the West civil society has moved to a point where all out war would be seriously unpopular. This is not so true of China and India, who may still need to complete the catastrophic bloodletting phase of their history.

Is it possible for a society to leapfrog that phase?

Those of us who seek peace in our lives have a responsibility not only to be loving in our immediate community, but to spread our love and peace around the world.

Historically wars are fought in ignorance and not in awareness. When two populations (or individuals, or communities) do not understand each other and a dispute arises, for whatever reason, the result is usually conflict – hot or cold.

If we are to evolve to a peaceful and sustainable society we must spread cultural understanding and love of (rather than fear of) diversity.

This is not necessarily some great geo-political mission, it is also an every day habit in our conversations, communications and actions.

Recently I have had the privilege to have contributed to the beginning of an expedition that aims to carry this message in a very physical way across Europe and Asia.

Seb Mower was working in an Estate Agents in Abu Dhabi, when we spoke, and struggling to contain his passion for adventure and connection.

In our coaching session we uncovered Seb’s life purpose to: “Push the boundaries of connection, to persuade other people to theirs to develop a greater individual sense of responsibility for our collective future.”

Seb’s interpretation of and response to this is to organise a carbon neutral, overland expedition that will connect cultures and inspire others to pursue their life’s purpose.

Seb already has an initial page up for his web site and will follow this up with blogs, video diaries to tell the story as it happens.

We do not all need to take such radical action, but we do all need to change our lives in subtle ways that will enable us to live in love and peace.

I am here to help people do just that.

If you have not already, please read my FREE e-books on Authentic Leadership and Life Purpose, both available for download at www.authentictransformation.co.uk

I can also help you personally or your business or organisation find more peaceful (and profitable) ways to to be both in direction and leadership. Either individually or through events.

If you are ready to move forward and would like some help please take a look at www.authentictransformation.co.uk to see what is available or reply to this e-mail.

On the 13 June I will be hosting a one off Authentic Transformation Day in Liverpool, England. It would be lovely to see you there.

With love
