It seems that our modern industrialized culture has lost or rejects the critical wisdom of interconnectedness. In order for civilization to have a sustainable future in our fast changing world, we have to get out the competitive separatist mindset and introduce the ancient wisdom of interconnectedness and collaboration.
Nature presents great examples of successful sustainable systems and provides a powerful portal of leadership transformation.
Some of the key principles of nature include collaboration, interconnectedness, diversity, adaption, resiliency, balance and harmony. If people apply these principles in their daily lives, the world would be a much more sustainable and hospitable place. The fact is that the live we have created is just not working for millions of people. We are trapped in a prison of limiting beliefs of how to create joy and happiness in our lives.
In order to create a safe, joyful and sustainable future we have to do something different. In order to do something different, we have to think differently. We need to elevate our thinking to a new level of consciousness. A level that can free us from this mental prison. So how do we do it?
We are beginning to realize that the old ways of competition and survival of the fittest are not sustainable for people, businesses or the planet. Nature may be our most qualified life coach, with millions of years of experience in creating sustainability. It’s time to look to her wisdom for some answers. It’s time to do something different. Let’s try smarter – not harder!
