How to balance personal stability
with the plight of humanity by
establishing a sense of global empathy.
You say you want a revolution?
A communal evolution?
To be part of the solution?

…what we are “up to” on this website is creating a Civil Rights Movement for the Soul, freeing humanity at last from the oppression of its belief in a violent, angry and vindictive God, and releasing our species from a spiritual doctrine that has created nothing but separation, fear, and dysfunction around the world.
I see us replacing this dogma, finally, with an ethos of unity and cooperation, understanding and compassion, generosity and love.
If you would like to know more about this movement, please visit this online newspaper often, read each of the articles, and join here in The Conversation of the Century. That conversation is about more than just idle talk. It is about creating and moving energy. Every major shift on the planet was ignited by a conversation. When many people talk about the same thing at the same time, they become very powerful. What we envision here is a global movement that jumps from computer screens to living rooms all over the world…and then from living rooms to the streets, to churches, town halls, city councils, state legislatures, national assemblies, and global seats of power. We see The Global Conversation as a catalyst in changing the world.
At the very least, it will get the stagnant energy of humanity’s evolution moving again. Right now, nothing is working. None of the systems we have put into place to make our world function better are working. Not our political systems, not our economic systems, not our ecological systems, not our educational systems, not our social systems, and not our spiritual systems. None of them — not one of them — has produced the outcomes for which we have collectively yearned. In fact, it is worse. They have produced exactly the opposite. They have generated outcomes we say we don’t even want.
This is a sure sign that something is amiss. There is a systemic problem. And something has to change. That’s where we come in. It is time now for us to re-write Humanity’s Cultural Story. You can begin to do that, joining with others, right here on this website. (See the copy block just above.) And then, join in The Conversation of the Century. You can do that on this website as well. And you can start a Global Conversation Group in your home. And then, get ready…
…we are about to change the world.
…a note about your role with this Internet Newspaper. We hope that you will read the articles here and add to them by offering your reactions, responses, and input in the Comments Section each day. The purpose of the paper is to start a conversation going — we call it The Conversation of the Century — about the events of our days and times, and how they are, or would be, impacted by The New Spirituality.
In addition, we hope you will write frequent Guest Columns, that you will post your observations regarding the content of the book that started all of this, The Storm Before the Calm, and add your insights as to what you believe should become part of humanity’s New Cultural Story.
Today, in the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting, those insights into what our New Cultural Story should be, are especially wanted and desired. So please use this location on the Internet to help launch a New Era for Humanity by bringing your ideas to the fore. Remember, always, at first, it is Ideas that change things!
