WHOLE SYSTEM COMMUNITIES BY DESIGN
Culture change happens as a conscious co-creative emergent process. Below I describe my vision for an online community that I am creating called ‘Changing Normal’. A collaborative process for designing and developing a more livable and sustainable future. I will be an interactive website featuring an open and flexible framework using ‘community domains’ to provide a comprehensive approach for building real-life communities that are designed with the whole-system in mind. Participants will be invited to use this environment to share their talents, unique creativity, and passion with others. The long term goal is to transfer designs from the online environment into real-life communities.
WHAT IS A CULTURAL MYTHOLOGY?
A cultural mythology arises when informing messages (mind), expressed through metaphor (emotion), are transfered through a collectively connected medium (body). This is how our shared reality is created, controlled, and sustained. Each person’s true Identity can get suppressed by a an unconsciously arising shared belief system. This is when myth takes on negative connotations. However, once an individual awakens to the myth-making method, each holds the power to become creators of grand new worlds. This can not be done until one’s ego is transformed to align with both personal and shared realities. The work of ChangingNormal.com is founded on the dream of a new mythology arising. One that is globally aware, and speaks to the magnificence of our individual and collective manifesting potential.
WHAT IS CHANGING NORMAL?
Writer Jon Rappoport best addresses the idea of what NORMAL is in his many articles. I suggest you start with ‘How I Put Together The Matrix Revealed‘ and go from there. I have yet to find another like Jon who so eloquently speaks to the creation of multiple realities and how our essential creative nature is being suppressed. [Caution: His writings are not for weak minds whose belief systems are easily threatened.]
