From the perspective of social change, we know that our world is waking up and taking responsibility for what is happening. When I read the following article it is a “feel good” article about the future of our social change. 2045 seems like a long way off but when we look around today, we can see the movement happening already.
Below is an article from Richard Sauerman, The Brand Guy, whose blog you can find on Firebrandtalents.com, offering us information about current projects for change. It is refreshing to hear about the positive social solutions he is experiencing with his colleagues. As we move through our own process of understanding our lives, we understand our connection to the empty space and what we can do to fill it.
2045 is the year when the first human colony will be set up on Mars. The year when technological singularity and artificial intelligence are expected to be a daily, living reality. The year when we will all be driving [or not driving] self-driving cars.”
It is nice to hear positive expectations for the future. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in all the negative around us. Then when we think about how lucky we are to be experiencing a shift to a more socially aware motivated humanity across the entire planet, it is amazing. Visionaries are amazing individuals, they are the ones that have shaped the positive solutions for society changes throughout our history.
The perception of visionaries is not clouded by the present issues, but they focus on what can be done. I, for one, am grateful to be able to experience the social change we are seeing now. Putting ourselves and others first, including our lovely planet, instead of blindly accepting old, destructive ways, makes me feel grateful that I am here to be part of such a shift in society.
We have learned about many new socially conscious business ideas, and I imagine there are many more to come. We know about the Keshe Foundation (Free Energy), Tesla’s New Solar Battery Energy System, and cleaver ways to clean up damage that we have done to our environment over the eons. Recently I read about a term: Culture Industries. You can follow that link to Wikipedia and learn more.
It’s time to fill that space with a world of our choosing. We can fill that space with socially conscious, aware of our oneness connections that creates a new, life-friendly, experience for all of us.
Creating Positive Social Solutions seems to be the challenge for many living in this lifetime.
I am on-board with Mr. Sauerman. Are you?
Thanks For Reading.

This is a long but great quote:
“Many social justice or social activist movements have been rooted in a position. A position is usually against something. Any position will call up its opposition. If I say up, it generates down. If I say right, it really creates left. If I say good, it creates bad. So a position creates its opposition. A stand is something quite distinct from that.
There are synonyms for “stand” such as “declaration” or “commitment,” but let me talk for just a few moments about the power of a stand. A stand comes from the heart, from the soul. A stand is always life affirming. A stand is always trustworthy. A stand is natural to who you are. When we use the phrase “take a stand” I’m really inviting you to un-cover, or “unconceal,” or recognize, or affirm, or claim the stand that you already are.
Stand-takers are the people who actually change the course of history and are the source of causing an idea’s time to come. Mahatma Gandhi was a stand-taker. He took a stand so powerful that it mobilized millions of people in a way that the completely unpredictable outcome of the British walking out of India did happen. And India became an independent nation. The stand that he took… or the stand that Martin Luther King, Jr. took or the stand that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony took for women’s rights—those stands changed our lives today. The changes that have taken place in history as a result of the stand-takers are permanent changes, not temporary changes. The women in this room vote because those women took so powerful a stand that it moved the world.
And so the opportunity here is for us to claim the stand that we already are, not take a position against the macro economic system, or a position against this administration, although some of you may have those feelings. What’s way more powerful than that is taking a stand, which includes all positions, which allows all positions to be heard and reconsidered, and to begin to dissolve.
When you take a stand, it actually does shift the whole universe and unexpected, unpredictable things happen.”
