“If you want to change the world, throw a better party.” So says Rick Ingrasci, a life coach, author, and friend of Rupert Sheldrake, a well-known biologist and author of ‘Science Set Free’. When I read this in Sheldrake’s fascinating interview in the February issue of The Sun magazine, I said to myself, “That is exactly what we need!”
But how do you do that? How do you get people really excited about spreading the universal benefits of peace, love, and kindness? Speaking from an American perspective, I am stumped. The adrenaline pumping, violence ridden entertainment of so many movies, television series, and video games that increasingly more and more people are using for “fun” is a very tough competitor indeed.
But I refuse to let that challenge stop me. I am on a campaign to spread peace and love, and make it as fun as possible. It will take creativity, patience, and determination, but I am bound and determined to make it happen. Hmm…music, art, dance, non-violent games…there are many possibilities. I would love to have your input. To create change, there must be bold action and progressive thinking.
Rupert Sheldrake combines science, spirituality, and philosophy to explain behavior, memory, and genetics. He is definitely a progressive thinker in his field, and controversial to those in the scientific mainstream. But is it not these so-called “crackpots”, that bring about the most amazing ideas, inventions, and future-changing elements across the annals of history? Whether you agree with him or not, Rupert Sheldrake takes risks worth taking. The future of humanity, and this beautiful earth is dependent on minds such as his.
I do not compare myself with Rupert Sheldrake. But I admire him. I know this world is going to need some major awakening to bring about the change in behavior that is needed to create world peace. If I am called a crackpot along with other optimistic peace lovin’ folks in this beautiful world, so be it. I embrace my inner crackpot and celebrate her with great joy!
So, time to get the thinking caps on people. What kind of peace party, peace train, peace movement would you throw? I know we can do it, just like ‘The Little Engine That Could”. I know we can, I know we can, I know we can…
And we will.
Peace and love,
