I’m telling you, there is enormous power here for you, too.
Lately I’ve been really excited about imagining an army of social change warriors beginning to gather around the planet.
Maybe there is an environmental activist working in Antarctica, a teacher creating inspiration in a corner of Detroit, a Russian diplomat attempting to redirect Putin’s insanity, or an artist in Boston bringing joy to her neighborhood.
Their social change visions vary widely, and likely they don’t even use that terminology. But what they all have in common is a deep determination and optimism about the future they want to create – the better world they want to bring to fruition.
I believe that chaos, confusion and destruction – much like the kind we are currently witnessing in various parts of the globe – is the high temperature and pressure necessary to transform the carbon of our worn out world into the diamonds of a healthier, more sustainable future.
It is happening right now. You may not be able to see it, but I can.
All across our planet – likely even along the path you travel every day – those who are tired of the world as it is and envision something so much better are beginning to remake, reinvent, reenvision the world as we know it.
And how exciting! How thrilling!
From the ashes that now seemingly surround us, strong, determined, hopeful, warriors for health and peace and connection and (dare I say it!) LOVE, are amassing.
And what they are imagining, what they are assembling, what they are building – brick by brick – is amazing. It is beautiful. It is a world to behold.
Like it or not, if you are reading this, you are among this group of social change warriors, too. Deny it if you like, but I know the truth.
Deep inside of you lies a vision for a better world, a world that you will help bring to life. Through the power of your imagination, your belief, your drive and your optimism.
Have no doubt, dear ones. A better world awaits us.
We just need to roll up our sleeves and start imagining it into being.
