Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

My Secret: Peripheral vision; keep a look out for other challenges
or new solutions all the time.

When you accept everything around you as a resource, as a learning opportunity, and as reminder of inter-connectivity, then you open yourself up to new ways of seeing, new ways of communicating, new ways of understanding, new ways of empathizing, new ways of creating and new ways of being.

When you see the world around you as an ally and stay open to all the possible solutions and the impossible ones, you are able to manifest solutions that work. This may sometimes mean honoring the cultural fabric of the context you are in, or it may mean dissolving social, legal, economic, scientific, relational, or other, agreements (rules) individually and collectively that you have assigned to the world you live in.

It is seeing with your heart, with your mind, with your soul, with your wallet, with your family, with your studies, with your neighbors, with your computer, with the entirety of your experience.

Maintaining multilateral and multidimensional perspective is maintaining peripheral vision. It is also seeing those next to you, who are also changing the world with you, because it is not me changing the world, it is us.

Top-notch, direct Evidence.

"It is seeing with your heart, with your mind, with your soul, with your wallet, with your family, with your studies, with your neighbors, with your computer, with the entirety of your experience."

and "Maintaining multilateral and multidimensional perspective is maintaining peripheral vision."

One-shot, one-kill on that Mission, IMO.

I believe I may often quote this!

Great.

This is an excellent post. +1 for spark.

This concept of peripheral vision is extremely important when we are mapping "white spaces" and creating "blue oceans" through our interpretations of the "long tail" of causes, actions or outcome by looking beyond our subjective reality and creating our own paradigm to inspire, imagine or innovate.

I feel so happy to see you bringing the context of "...honoring the cultural fabric of the context you are in, or it may mean dissolving social, legal, economic, scientific, relational, or other, agreements (rules) individually and collectively that you have assigned to the world you live in".

Amazing. I will remember this.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
