THE CONSCIOUSNESS COMPANY

Conscious Politics

It’s time.

 

When a newly elected Mayor of a capital city says

“…But no, I’m not talking about trying to absolutely fix it.  I think that’s the aspiration…,” *

in response to a question about solving the issue we call homelessness,

he demonstrates that it’s time to infuse higher consciousness into the equation.

Because there’s a difference between an aspiration and an intention.

 

Further, when the citizenry believes that homelessness, as as issue,

is intractable and will likely never be solved,

that it’s “not my responsibility because I work hard for what I have,”

it demonstrates that it’s time to infuse higher consciousness into the equation.

Because beliefs matter and we are wired to be compassionate. 

 

When hard-working staffers of NGOs and non-profits and the like

working on issues from world hunger to environmental protection to mass incarceration

become exhausted and demoralized at work because of the

difficult politics within their organizations,

they demonstrate that it’s time to infuse higher consciousness into the equation.

Because it clogs up the works when our individual and group energy doesn’t match the energy of our goals.

 

When everyday citizens and activists who are angry and fearful and defensive

— which they have every right to be —

make choices and decisions out of anger and fear

and when they talk in terms of fight and protest and defense,

they demonstrate that it’s time to infuse higher consciousness into the equation.

Because anger and rage and fear only produce more anger and rage and fear.
Because anger has far more useful benefits. 

 

When executives and staffers and volunteers of non-profit and social service agencies

— not to mention government employees at any level —

lament the dearth of funding for their projects,

they demonstrate that it’s time to infuse higher consciousness into the equation.

Because beliefs like “there’s not enough” ensures that there’s not enough.

 

All of these people — all of us

are good, open-hearted, dedicated, caring, compassionate, well-intended people.

By no means is that even remotely a question nor is it the issue.

We are just not yet schooled in the importance of clarity when it comes to thinking.

We tend to focus far too much energy on the problems.

And we are not aware of some of the pitfalls of “taking action.”

Indeed, that’s why The Consciousness Company is launching in early 2017.

Because it’s time.

As we launch, it’s exciting to already be in talks with the City of Los Angeles

about possibly doing some work in support of their restorative justice programs.

More will be shared about that as it develops and, really, it’s just the beginning.

Politics affects everything and The Consciousness Company is eager to bring

its expertise to bear on society’s most pressing problems like

homelessness, poverty, and racism — to name a few.

There is much work to be done with politicians.

And activists.  And bureaucrats. And campaigns.  And city governments.

We have done some preliminary work on Housing for Everyone in San Francisco and we

have plans ready to go for any city or municipality dealing with this issue.

We also have plans ready to go for any city or municipality dealing with poverty.

Let’s explore together.

The examples of opportunities listed above are but light brush strokes that point to the kinds

of ways in which everyday higher consciousness can — and should — be employed

to move us much closer to creating what we all want:  a world that works for everyone.

Regardless of who you are or where you work,

if you are a politician or a staffer,

if you are running a campaign of any kind,

if you are an activist,

if you are a non-profit or and NGO working on these kinds of issues,

please introduce your Self and

LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW TO TAKE YOUR VERY GOOD WORK TO NEW HEIGHTS.
