Conversation is powerful. Conversation often emerges based on where we place our attention. Our attention takes in information from around us and opens it up for discussion.

The challenge is that generally conversations are limited based on the belief systems and values that make up our culture.

If we imagine culture as the values and belief systems that become normal for a group of people, or even an entire country, we can see how they determine how we understand ourselves and our place in the world. These values also determine how we make meaning and define purpose in life.

From here, culture informs how we design and coordinate the actions we take.

If our attention is always placed on the old ways of doing things, the old ways of knowing and being - our conversations will always be the same and continually reinforce old patterns and actions.

If you are like me, you feel that our existing culture is driven by a paradigm of separation, dominance, and authority over nature. It results in human centric beliefs within nature and the destruction of ourselves and our planet.

In this paradigm, people are defined by how much they can contribute to an economy of extraction, not by who they are as conscious beings.

5 years ago (2009) I founded Collective Evolution to be a part of changing conversations being had around me and the world. My goal was to help create a shift in consciousness.

I had no idea our platform would grow to reach many millions of people, but I had a sense that my thoughts were important and I needed to make space to allow the idea of Collective Evolution to emerge.

Slowly, I’m seeing the collective conversation in the world begin to change. Because there are now more conversations for people to explore, entirely new and outside-the-box ideas are emerging as possibilities in people’s consciousness.

This is what I mean by changing the conversation. It creates a ripple effect we can’t possibly imagine in the complexity of our collective consciousness and is the basis for how we explore ideas beyond old paradigms.

Do you have a sense or hunger to explore something new? To respond to what feels like a crisis unfolding in our world? What can you do to attune to new conversations? How can you seek them out and ignite them with those around you?

Transform you, transform the world.
