A powerful Valedictory Address on decolonizing ourselves.
Change the Story, Change the Future
Choice-making beings of many possibilities, we humans live by shared cultural stories. They are the lens through which we view reality. They shape what we most value as a society and the institutions by which we structure power.
When we get our story wrong, we get our future wrong.
We are in terminal crisis because we have our defining story badly wrong. Seduced by a fabricated Sacred Money and Markets story, we live in indentured service to mon- ey-seeking corporate robots and relate to Earth as if it were a dead rock for sale.
Communications technologies now give us the capacity as a species to choose our common story with conscious intention. This is a moment of unprecedented opportunity to create a future consistent with our true nature and pos- sibility as living beings born of a Living Earth born of a Living Universe.
An authentic Sacred Life and Living Earth story is emerging. It has ancient roots in indigenous wisdom. If embraced, it changes everything.
Change the story, change the future.
