A Global Shift In Consciousness

I believe we are watching the rumblings of a tectonic shift in human consciousness right now. I imagine (and secretly hope) that will affect almost every human system you can imagine. The way we work, the way we connect, the way we play.

By the end of my life, I expect to look back and think that sitting in traffic for hours on end to commute to cubicles in city centers is archaic and odd. Creativity will be the new labor currency, the skill most needed in the marketplace. All forms of therapy will be considered mainstream.

Maybe we’ll be living on Mars?

If you could fast forward one, two, or three decades, how might you envision not only your life but the lives of the people around you? What will the world be like to live in—more peaceful or more polarized? Is the sun setting on humanity or will we continue rising? Will our emotional, political, and economic problems be solved? And if so, who will have solved them?

And more importantly, what do you hope for? What do you hope it will be like?

Close your eyes and imagine a future that you love.

Open your eyes and make that future come true.

No one else is going to do it for you.
