Occupy Heart bridges inner transformation with outer systemic changes.
A core, fundamental principle of economy is commonly overlooked and often undervalued, yet, vital for the change we ultimately seek—the realization of dignity and worth at an unassailable level.
From a broader perspective, the Occupy movement expresses a deep shift in human awareness, a shift toward reclaiming human value...to occupy, to own, our very existence at an unprecedented scale in human history. The word "own" meaning to assume responsibility for. When people know their true worth, in their bones, they are no longer available to be sold, bought; held down or held out.
People who know their true worth are naturally sustainable. There is no inner void to attempt to fill. Most importantly, value for life is cherished above all "things".
What does a new economy look like? (parting share)
I appreciate your enthusiasm to direct and focus new economy conversations, David. You needed to be on the call to understand that the nuance of "new economy" we explored is at home in this location...at least to start.
Lest old-timers assume they know what the discussion entailed via the title without being present for the call, the content and context has not been covered in the way we unfolded the conversation last Friday.
I agree that ultimately we'd like to have convergence, but sometimes particular strands of thought need to be developed in their own right before merging into similar-though-not-alike streams of communication.
What you are pointing to does, however, illuminate our need for a better indexing system for aggregating "new economy" discussions as well as other topics. Please remember, also, that each cafe call will initiate its conversation in its respective discussion thread before it moves out to the wider forum.
Thanks for sharing. It is valuable for folks to explore like-topics. ALSO, the better posts and threads are tagged, the easier it will be to search and aggregate them.
