PARADIGM CHANGE

    There are beautiful writings about paradigm change.  Describing it
    is a difficult task.  The director of the Omega Institute invited women
    to join a conference to discuss and create ideas.  Please see the
    letter by Elizabeth Lesser and Eve Ensler ... Omega/ VDay Letter

    Creating a New Paradigm

    "All the darkness of the world cannot put out the light of a single candle."

    The Old Paradigm

    Together, we can and will create a new paradigm on Earth. Yet in order to give
    meaningful suggestions for this, we first need to speak candidly about what's
    happening in the world at present. It appears that there are factions within the
    world's power elite which desire to exert as much control as possible over the
    world. Their primary means for establishing control are through promoting fear,
    secrecy, and polarization, and through distracting people from their deeper
    purpose in life. As these factions gain ever greater power and control, our
    freedoms and liberties are increasingly taken away, sometimes without our even
    realizing it.

    Fear is used as a powerful tool of control by these factions of the global elite.
    "The terrorists want to kill us all. Your job, savings, and retirement are no longer
    secure. You are either for us or against us. We might be attacked at any time."
    All of these messages push us towards fear. And by encouraging us to focus
    blame on others such as terrorists and "evil" leaders, the global power brokers
    push us away from feeling in control of our lives and towards the role of
    powerless victims. The more we slip into fear and being victims, the easier it is
    for us to be manipulated.

    Secrecy leads to control through preventing the exposure of hidden agendas,
    and through breeding distrust, suspicion, and paranoia in the world. In the name
    of "national security," we are told ever more frequently that we should not know
    what is happening behind closed doors in government. Yet we are encouraged
    to keep vigilant watch over our neighbors, over those who question the
    government, and over those who look or act different from us, as they could
    secretly be terrorists in sheep's clothing. Rampant suspicion and secrecy are
    causing us to lose touch with the common humanity we share with all around us.

    Polarization leads to "us vs. them" ways of thinking. Divide and conquer is a
    tactic that has been used successfully by the power elite of the world for
    centuries. As long as people focus on blaming and attacking "the enemy," they
    are not likely to look for the deeper causes of their problems. Controlling
    factions of the power elite work to keep public and media attention focused on
    issues which divide us into two polarized camps, so that their greatest concerns
    of power and control go unnoticed. The power brokers then control both sides
    of the divided public by assuring that corporate ownership of the media and key
    candidates from all political parties support their deeper power and polarization
    agendas, which often involve war profiteering.

    A final subtle, yet powerful method of gaining control is to distract people from
    their purpose in life. Consider that television, radio, and movies are filled with
    ever more greed, violence, and empty sex. Our educational system increasingly
    prioritizes passing tests over developing intelligence and creativity. Excessive
    corporate control of the media limits what news we receive, and often shapes
    our decisions and the way we think. Our attention is subtly being diverted from
    our deeper purpose in life to the more superficial attractions of sex,
    consumerism, and money.
    As people succumb to fear, secrecy, and polarization, and as they lose touch
    with their sense of purpose in life, elements of the global elite are able to exert
    ever more control over our lives and world.

    The New Paradigm

    What can we do about all this? Ultimately, it is the collective fear, secrecy,
    polarization, and loss of purpose within all of us that has allowed leaders to take
    power who would subvert democracy, and who would take away our freedoms
    and liberties. By each one of us making a commitment to work on these issues
    both inside of ourselves and out in the world—and to inspire others to do the
    same—we can change our collective direction and build a solid foundation for a
    new paradigm. Several actions can help us to take firm steps in that direction.
    Develop purpose and intentions for your life. To live full, rich lives in today's
    complex world, it's vitally important to give your life clear direction by exploring
    what is deepest and most meaningful to you, and by developing life purpose and
    intentions based on this. Then choose to live your intentions and follow your
    purpose to the best of your ability every day. By choosing to live with clear
    direction and focus, life becomes deeper and more meaningful. This then
    weakens the seduction of consumerism and media hype which distract us from
    our purpose, and allows us to more effectively focus on creating a new
    paradigm.

    Choose to transform fear into acceptance and love. When we notice ourselves
    feeling fear, we can trace the roots of that fear, so that we are able to identify
    our core issues and deal more consciously with them. We can open to guidance
    from friends, teachers, and spiritual sources in helping us to move from fear to
    acceptance and understanding. We can also transform our fears through
    welcoming the ever-present love of God, and the love that lies always deep
    within our own hearts, and in the hearts of those around us. In doing this, we
    begin to recognize fear as an invitation to growth.

    Become aware of when you are playing the role of victim, and choose instead to
    take personal responsibility for creating a new paradigm. In blaming others for
    our problems, we often avoid taking responsibility for how much we are
    involved in creating these problems through the choices we make. Whenever
    we catch ourselves playing the role of victim by blaming others (including the
    power elite) for everything that's wrong in our lives, we can choose to take a
    look inside ourselves, and to explore and take responsibility for our role in
    what's happening. By focusing less on blaming others, and more on improving
    ourselves, every one of us can make a difference both in our lives and in our
    world.

    Avoid secrecy and encourage openness and transparency. An important way we
    can do this is to work together to inform friends and colleagues about the major
    cover-ups being hidden from the public. Then in our personal lives, when we
    notice ourselves keeping information from others, we can examine our motives
    for this secrecy. Are we withholding information out of our own self-interest, or
    because this is really what's best for all involved? And on a deeper level, where
    are we avoiding being honest with ourselves?

    Move beyond polarization and the focus on "good vs. evil" and "us vs. them."
    Consider the possibility that all of us are doing what we believe to be right
    based upon our beliefs, circumstances, and upbringing. Each of us has a place
    in our heart that wants only to love and be loved. As we focus less on blaming
    and judging "them" and more on supporting the highest motive in all people—
    including members of the power elite—we increasingly come to see that we are
    all one human family, and that we can choose to transform our world by working
    together for the good of all.

    And finally, come together in groups and communities to support each other in
    making these positive changes. In these groups and communities, we support
    each other in transforming fear into acceptance and love. We exchange
    information about all that is being hidden from us and explore ways to move
    beyond polarization. We also share our life purpose and intentions and
    encourage each other to live these as fully as we can. And we inspire each other
    to take responsibility for our lives and to be the best that we can be. When we
    gather in community to support each other in these intentions, we join in
    building a growing network of inspiration and empowerment around the planet.

    These suggestions emphasize changing the collective consciousness of the
    world by transforming both our own personal lives and the world around us. Let
    us do all that we can to stop destructive behaviors of the global power elite. Yet
    let us not overly focus on changing the outside world without first having a solid
    internal foundation, lest we fall into blaming others, and into the polarizing "us
    vs. them" ways which only further divide us. By reminding ourselves that the
    most powerful change starts inside each one of us, we can develop more
    balance and strength to then work towards positive change out in the world.
    As we change ourselves from the inside out, we send ripples of inspiration and
    healing out into the world. By joining together in groups and communities to
    support each other in this, those ripples become waves which powerfully help
    to create a new paradigm for all of us.
