Three ways we can support positive change:
- Stand up and say no when we see things happening that we know in our hearts are not right
- Create and support new organisations and ways of doing things that are more ethically sound. This may simply be a decision to buy as much as possible from local sustainable sources and minimising purchases from non-ethical and multinational corporate organisations. Be conscious of where and how we spend our money. It makes a real difference.
- Being part of the current paradigm shift and evolution of consciousness, which can be seen as a convergence of science and spirituality; a deepening of ourselves as a human beings undertaking inner work that enables us to be the change we want to see in the world.
Moving from a worldview based on classical reductionist science, where everything is understood by knowing what it is made of and power is considered to be held by individual political parties resulting in a ‘power over’ world view, to one based on Quantum science and Systems Theory where everything is understood to be in relationship and interrelated, that nothing can be done in isolation and that relationship between the parts is key. This is a win win world where the sum of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
For thousands of years we have been developing more and more sophisticated ways of making, doing, working and living. Our material world is full of creature comforts and sophistication. Yet as a race we are no happier we are actually more stressed and diseased. As we wake to the errors of our ways we must challenge many of our core beliefs.
Now is the time to take stock and find a new, elegant and simpler way forward. To look inwards with our ingenuity and engineering skills to where the key to our happiness truly lies rather than outwards to the myth of the material consumer-based world. Making use of the wisdom from indigenous peoples, eastern philosophy and the best modern therapeutic practices we can re-engineer and transform our lives into new possibilities that can live in harmony with each other and this our beautiful mother earth.
Business as usual is suffocating us and we have to find another way. The Fold is an organisation and organism intent on this transitional transformation to a new way.
