START BEING WHO YOU ARE
- GO FASTER
are you going to do to go faster... that is different
which will achieve NEW results?
I have a suggestion: END CO-DEPENDENCY
have friends (off the Net, in everyday life) who we don't want
to stir up too much... because we are (we think!) dependent on
them. So we don't say too much to them.
Say.... there are ten million people in the world who are
putting most of their efforts for changing the world INTO THE
INTERNET. But, on the Net we are mostly meeting people who feel
like us... we are meeting the rest of the ten million.
Each of us - roughly - has ten friends in everyday life. With
us, that's 110 MILLION PEOPLE. Out of 110 million people - our
social circle - 100 million people are doing nothing / they
don't know what's going on / they are waiting.
Instead of us ten million 'activists' just talking to
ourselves on the Net, and creating small change by finding a few
new people, how about us changing the everyday world by
indicating to our sleepy and frustrated friends it's time for
them to get involved?
If we don't do that - if we don't communicate properly to the
people we meet face-to-face - we are in effect living a lie.
A man came into my place yesterday talking the same old stuff...
complaining about things which are not important (his way of
showing he's not happy). I faced him with the world situation.
He threw up a few more avoidance-of-reality manoeuvres. I
persisted. Part of me said: 'Don't hurt this person, Michael -
they are just lost'. I carried on talking about what is
important in the world, and how change is happening right now on
a huge scale. I was gentle, but strong.
He left here as a new person.
whole manner was different when he left.
This is my new policy. I couldn't do it before because I
couldn't see the problem. Now I can see the problem, I feel I
can start to do it... bit by bit... one person at a time.
If ten million join in this effort,
it could be an important strategy to 'make the difference'. This could be called: 'The
Global, Standing Up Straight, Human Domino Effect'.
we don't do it, we are living a lie.
We are either part of the problem, or part of the solution:
must do what we conceive to be the right thing and not bother
our heads or burden our souls with whether we will be
successful. Because if we don't do the right thing, we will be
doing the wrong thing and we will just be a part of the disease
and not part of the cure." ~ E. F. Schumacher
co-dependency, and START being
FASTER AT CHANGING THE WORLD
Perhaps these numbers could be increased tenfold. Perhaps there
are a hundred million people who are acting to help the world,
and our network of friends and close contacts extends out to
include a total of one billion people. Influencing one
billion people in a vital, new way is very quickly going to
begin changing the entire world.
