I’m in Colorado for the next four days … sort of. I’ll be attending (sort of) a conference on the future of the world. Actually, I’ve subscribed to the webcast of all the presentations in the main ballroom. Some of the most advanced thinkers in the world will be addressing topics such as:
Tribalism versus globalism
The disparity in wealth
Fake news and hate propaganda
The misuse of sexuality
Environmental degradation and the denial of climate change
Immigration and protection
How do we deal with massive change? How can we create an inclusive world in which we accept our differences and see them as an opportunity to build something new? “What’s next for human evolution?”
The older I’ve become, the more I’ve been living in “I don’t know.” Sure, I’m smart enough to think through complex issues but multiple mysteries of life continue to present themselves. Perhaps the rational mind is only a part of the puzzle solving. Can I open to insights that seem to come from elsewhere?
Starting tonight on my laptop, I intend to fall into “beginner’s mind”. With the glass close to empty, what will Spirit fill it with? What connections will emerge over the next four days? What moments of serendipity will say hi? To what extent could I have been a presenter at the “What Now?” conference? I do know that I have a part to play.
Tomorrow through Monday, I’ll give you my take on what I’m hearing. Perhaps windows will open for all of us.
If you’d like to join in, go to integrallife.com. On the dropdown menu, choose “Live”. Scroll down to “Upcoming Broadcasts” and pick “What Now?”. Scroll some more until you see words in orange: “Click here to purchase the webcast.” It costs $125.00 US. If you become an Integral Life member, it’s $100.00. You need Google Chrome or fancy browsers that I don’t recognize. Internet Explorer won’t work. The first session starts at 7:00 pm tonight.
See you there?
