Read these short blog posts to explore the Conventional and Natural Paradigms, and what it might mean to you to Re-Align with Nature.
Why is it that so many of us are working so hard to address the multiple environmental and humanitarian crises we’re facing, yet we’re not making the headway needed?
I believe that to make real change, we — individually and collectively — need to see and understand the world, how it works, and our role in it, very differently. We need to recognize and let go of what I’m calling the Conventional Paradigm, and shift to living from our Natural Paradigm.
Although I may be using new framing or terms, I am certainly not alone in this thinking.
“A sustainable economy won’t mean much if we are still driven by a desire for unceasing consumption and mired in unhappiness and alienation.”
~ Navi Radjou
“Nothing about the inherent nature of business dictates that irreversible environmental damage, poor labor standards and conformity in leadership are prerequisites to profit. Successful stewardship of our businesses can exist alongside responsible stewardship of our communities and planet. Future generations are counting on it.”
~ The B Team
“If you want to “save the world”, you must first “find” your own consciousness, otherwise everything you do, regardless of good intentions, will be unconscious, will reflect and reinforce the unconsciousness of the world. It is the consciousness of the world that you are trying to save.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
So we need to shift our paradigm so that we, collectively, can begin to undo the damage that we’re doing.
But we also need to shift our paradigm so that each of us, individually, can live in a way that is more inspired, more creative, more wise, and in alignment with our own values, everyday — even at work.
If you’re curious how this might work, I invite you to download the [free] Tiny Transformation Workbook which will give you tiny peeks into the “Conventional Paradigm” and the “Natural Paradigm”, and then a tiny experience of intentionally living from your Natural Paradigm.
