I have created this website for myself as much as for anyone. I am trying to experience the New Story and to learn from and be with others doing the same.
I am trying to adopt a nonviolent lifestyle of service. I try to act more from the heart. I try to be less judgmental and more compassionate. I try to balance doing with being. I endeavor to be more selfless and experience unity with all life.
I try to see everyone I meet as sisters and brothers worthy of love and respect.
I have taken steps to reduce my carbon footprint. I try to shop locally. I have become very conscious of water usage, which as a resident of California is a high priority. I have a spiritual practice and am a member of a spiritual community, which give me deep support and purpose.
Yet, I am driven by old sets of conditioning: habits and patterns of behavior which cling to Old Story: the paradigm of separation. I am one of many in this struggle. I hope that more and more of us become aware of the desperate need for humanity to make the transition to a new way of inhabiting the planet.
As I write and post to this website, I do not pretend to have definitive answers to these issues. I write as part of the struggle to make and be the change I see we must make together. Along with others, I can imagine a more beautiful world and have faith that as we try collectively to do the right thing by the right means, we will evolve into New Story.
So I gather myself up and endeavor to proceed on the path, knowing that for people like me, staying on the path is the goal. That is challenging and rewarding although it leaves me far from the ideal. But as the ideal is always receding, working to stay on the path seems possible.
