What's This Mission All About?

It’s simple: to make a difference, and to help others make a difference too. This isn’t a crusade or mock spiritual journey - this is as real as night and day.

I see us having created a world that’s sinking more and more into decline. Who's to blame? Humanity - no-one else. For centuries we’ve been plundering so much that’s good in the world, and now it’s our turn to stand up and give something back. What happens if no-one stands up? We all fall down. It’s a simple as that. So, what can we do? For a start, let’s get back to basics: practising the fundamentals of humanism. Let’s tap inside each of us and discover respect for one another. Let’s have compassion and understanding, Let’s do our Human Revolution, and look at what each of us can do to create benefit and value in the lives of those around us; our families, our friends, our colleagues. Let’s look at the causes we’re making … are they good, or are they bad? Remember the adage, “What goes around, comes around …” well, that’s cause and effect, right?

Now, what if you’re in disagreement with this? That’s fine. Like I said once before, this isn’t a soapbox for preaching, it’s an open house for ideas, experiences, and realisations. So, if it doesn’t sit comfortably with you, then that’s okay … perhaps you’d like to have a look at the inquiry below, or forget what’s you’re reading here entirely. You choose. But for those of you who feel you have something to give, or are already on that path of giving, then I’d love to hear from you … in the meantime, I’ll hand you over to the inquiry!

INQUIRY: Where do you see yourself making a difference? What is it you have to offer? Is it something that’s been grinding away inside for years, or is something that’s appeared recently or only just now? What does it look like? What will it create?

ACTION: What can you do today to start making this happen?

Now go and do it ...
