Invitation to announce yourselves to each other !! 20 years ago In New Zealand I presented at their first “Be the Change” conference. Today as I reflect, I see what was put in place that day paved the way for us to be experiencing our current reality with a level of equanimity!
The first thing we have to do if we are going to change the world is to let the world know that we are here. We have to tell each other about each other. We have to “announce” ourselves to each other! One of the biggest reasons that people do not see themselves as “world-changers” is that they imagine themselves to be standing alone against overwhelming odds. It is as if we are all living by some Silent Agreement.
The Agreement is to keep our views largely to ourselves and to remain unknown to each other.This is not an agreement that we are keeping because we want to. It is not even an agreement that we are keeping consciously. We are keeping this agreement unconsciously, without even knowing that we are doing it. We keep this agreement by “going along,” by “giving in,” by “accepting” life “as it is.” NDW
