Let’s Have A Conversation….RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW

Namaste, Global Conversation Community. As we approach our thirteenth month since the launching of the site, we have seen our numbers grow substantially. BUT…as our site continues to grow, we still see the same problems in the world, repeating over and over and over again. Why, may you ask?

The problem is that we are sitting back. Being CONTENT and being PASSIVE. Reading, writing, and…..moving on with our lives.

I must admit that I am just as much a part of this as everyone else. For the past year or so, I have written my articles, submitted them, and have gone about my daily business. I have NOT added enough comments to our other delightful editors, I have NOT delved fully into getting discussion about my own articles going, and I certainly have NOT created as much spiritual change in the world as I desire to make.

BUT…things ARE about to change. A new version of my grandest vision is manifesting itself. As I’ve grown and changed, I’ve seen just how much I can be – and I can do. No more ‘self-imposed limitations’. No more ‘I can’t’. No more ‘I don’t have time for this’. Because, honestly, what could be more important?

As the current banner for The Global Conversation says, “When an entire culture refuses to believe that it has anything to do with what is occurring, it cannot do anything about what is occurring.” What we think is clearly not meshing with what we are doing – and NOW is the time to change that. IF we start thinking, acting, and being spiritual not just internally, but EXTERNALLY and INTERPERSONALLY, the world will feel the difference. For when we share, we grow. And when we grow, we thrive.

Let’s BE the difference makers. Let’s BE that thriving energy of the moment. Let’s BE that soul in Oneness – moving closer and closer together. Instead of day in, day out, my post, my article – share you voice, EVEN if you don’t think you have anything exceptional to contribute. Every moment spent invested in spiritual discussion and conversation is another moment of light shining upon the entire universe. And who doesn’t want more of that?

So yes, I WILL respond to every comment on my posts, every email I receive, and (guess who finally created a Facebook!) every friend request in my inbox.

Hit me up for some seriously amazing spiritual discussion. I’m here and ready to change the world. Ready to join me?

    Erin,
    I have been thinking over and over with my soul on how to help change the world the best that I can, and we have come up with something that might help everyone.

    Along with Neal’s new culture story, when talking with others in my family about GOD, I have started talking about how ones soul chooses which experiences we will be having in each life and from that perspective I have made some ground. So instead just talking about our experiences with family members to where God and them are separate, I tell them that they are not living this life on their own, —–I tell them that they are living it according to how they set their life up with their soul before being born. This has generated a lot of them talking and some are listening. I hope this help some.

      Every drop of insight lights another candle of illumination. Thank you for making the universe a more enlightened place.

    Bravo Lauren, I empathise with you completely, I too write, post and occasionally comment on other people’s posts. I have changed my life extensively to live the purpose I believe is mine yet I still allow societal norms to exists as excuses, which has kept me from fully committing.

    But now I accept your challenge, I will live each day being discontented with the way things are and look at the whole of life to see what I can see that may be of help in fixing the ills that plague our species.

    So where shall we start? What is the first topic to explore? Can we honestly look into these things? Seriously you, me and everyone else who says that want change, can we investigate the issues and come upon something completely different? Something that is not merely an adjustment of what we have done so far. We need new!

    Let’s do this. It will not be easy, egos will be hurt, ideals will be shattered, and identities will be left wanting. From a backdrop of genuine love, anything can be said.

    • Lauren Rourk

      Yes we can. Yes we will.

      The name of my blog has changed to reflect the movement of youth-not just teens, but every young person with an enlightened spirit-to take that step forward and lead us into a new world.

      You’re absolutely correct. It won’t be easy. It won’t be without hurt. But it will be a journey that will change everything.

      Starting now.
