The antidote to our collective viral rage, to the rise of the dark side

I have rage.

The art of Citizenship, being Democracy and Big Blue Sky

We inhabit a world divided. The chasm multiplies each second. And into the abyss we only see more of the same. More debt, more congestion, more broken down cities, communities, suicides, violence, racism, xenophobia, isolation…..hate.

Everyone starts at zero. What we fail to consider in our haste-to-the-top world is that moving to Mastery is not just about learning skills. True Mastery is a way of being. We reach Mastery through falling down and getting up again. A thousand times. Or more. This shapes us the person, as much as we learn the skills required. In … Read More

What is ‘cheap’ labor?

  We humans are being called to account. Our system of capitalism – a system that has been built, that could only have been built, entirely on the ability to NOT count for many externalities, such as the cost of Earth to create ‘fossil’ fuels, as well as the cost to release the ‘waste products’ of fossil fuels into the … Read More
