To begin to understand how to make a difference, you must first know what our issues are. Current events are constantly inundating us with information, and much of history the unbalanced cycles we have continued to recreate. However, the solutions have existed in parallel for longer than our collective culture of ‘civilization’. As a result, there are few models of true alternatives available today.
“We’re entering a world where one person can kill all of us, and all of us could actually fix everything.”
~ Thomas Friedman
This movement is focused on several aspects of bringing about a global cultural shift that enables us to look forward to a truly different and life-affirming, love based future that benefits all. The resources we promote are important components in establishing a more balanced approach. They educate us on our options we have, and help us to understand how to step outside of our current perspective to look at our world with renewed vision.
As Louise Hay affirms, change comes from within. A shift in consciousness, perspective, or understanding is where all great change begins. This is precisely the approach we advocate for anyone who wants to get involved with claiming a new world based on love, respect and compassion for all of life. To expand your understanding, we invite you to explore the various ways to get engaged, as well as our recommended resources.

Unplugging from the Matrix
Ishmael by Daniel Quinn is the first in a trilogy of books that takes you on a journey of origins dating back more than 10,000 years.
Told in the context of a novel, Quinn deconstructs the illusion of ‘civilization’ and its underlying premise that our way ‘is the best way to live’. It provides a powerful examination of what tribalism really is, why it works, and continues to be a sustainable format of human life through hundreds of thousands of years of anthropological evidence.
Forging A New Future:
There are projects and initiatives popping up all over the world. People are doing many things to create sustainable communities, such as inserting green spaces into existing urban areas, creating wind farms, installing solar panels, and plotting new gardens, to name a few. These things make us feel good about doing something, but what if there were more powerful ways to contribute?
The way we see it, these are merely symptoms of the same diagnosis. They ultimately recreate within a system of belief and society that are still poorly focused at their basis.
A true alternative that would address the foundational shift required to usher in a new age of balance and integration with nature, lies in the vision and plans carefully developed by the Venus Project. Founder Jacques Fresco, was a social engineer with the vision to uplift the quality of life for all humans in the world, and the planet itself. His work, along with that of Roxanne Meadows, who now leads the Venus Project, provides answers, plans, and an overall approach to how we can live successfully and sustainable, for generations to come.
