You and Raffi agreed this is a video worth posting at Occupy Cafe.  I love it!

Charles Eisenstein is one of the truly important visionaries alive today. I highly recommend his two books: The Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics. My only complaint about Charles is that he sometimes veers a bit too close to naivete. His use of the word "love" is one such example - a word which is also used far too often here and within the #OWS movement.

There is probably no word in the English language more commonly used and more universally misunderstood as "love". It can refer to anything from sexual lust to spiritual longing, from friendly affection to interpersonal attraction to lifelong committed attachment. And it can mean self-love (narcissism) or attachment to an object, a philosophy, an ideology or a goal, mission or institution. It can also be simply a biological survival instinct, like hunger or thirst, initiated by neurotransmitters such as pheromones, dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.

He also, however, uses the terms "connection", "community", "intimacy" and "meaning". I would urge us to use similar words which better communicate to a wider audience precisely what we intend.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
