EVOLUTION IS HAPPENING NOW
Evolution is about change. Anyone doing social change work, anyone trying to improve conditions, anyone trying to empower, succeed, innovate, heal, strengthen, renew, transform, enlighten — or even conquer or destroy — is engaged in evolutionary work.
Ultimately change is happening all the time — and we’re all involved — whether we notice it or not, whether we want it or not. Some very stable-seeming things — like mountains and stars — are changing in ways or at speeds we cannot easily see, or are made up of a dance of smaller changes. Furthermore, evolution doesn’t stop: Changes over here in my world evoke changes over there in yours. We keep striving to get to a place that is more comfortable, more enjoyable, more successful, more whole — changing things for everyone else as we do. All the little changes in our personal lives add up to bigger changes in our shared world — just look at climate change for a vivid example. Those big changes then influence our personal lives, which shape our neighbors, the economy, and the future of our planet….
We are on a cusp of unprecedented crises caused by the appalling obliviousness with which we use our awesome collective power. With climate change, extreme economic imbalances, the degradation of democracy, dangerous technological developments and many other dangers and collective stupidities, we’re rapidly moving into a ‘change or die’ situation. These crises will bring changes we can barely imagine. We have brought ourselves to a brink of both calamity and transcendence at a global level. Business-as-usual — the source of our security — is now becoming ever more clearly The Problem. So we find ourselves blessed/cursed (both!) with a marriage of opportunity and necessity: We can and we must transform ourselves and our social systems into a truly wise force for conscious evolution — a whole new way of being a civilization.
That is why we are here. It is the next chapter of our evolutionary story.
