The value of listening for the human family

The human family will come together when simply listening to one another supersedes having the “right” answer. What is important is to value and affirm one another. If we can do this, we will have the entire human family talking and listening to each other. This short existence is a special time for each person, a time for sharing ideas, exploring creativity, and basking in the glow of one another’s approval.

Corporate Social Analysis and Action – Part 1

1. Discover entire work force in the social networks (use Connect6 and LinkedIn Recruiter).

2. Segment the discovered individuals into various categories of strength by analyzing each individual’s likes/interests/personal content (use Brandwatch, Facebook Graph Search and SocialBro).

3. Encourage all employees to enter and beef up LinkedIn profiles and join company specific groups.

4. Analyze Yammer and Chatter and Sharepoint data for untapped solutions to lagging initiatives, do the same with all corporate email exchanges.

5. Fund internal social TV (model this after internal corporate news providers).

6. Direct specific employees to join online industry/interest groups associated with their job title/department/silo/region (discover these using the native search within specific networks).

7. Encourage complete connection of employees to one another in LinkedIn to the 100th percentile.

8. Fund all employees to have Executive level accounts and undergo LinkedIn training.

The Common Thread

…and they uploaded a strand of their DNA into the machine. And the machine displayed all of their experiences plus the experiences of their ancestors in personalized filmographies, photo journeys and highly detailed chronologies. And networks formed around these discovered memories, these forgotten stories. And these networks became an all-consuming modality of entertainment, education and invention. The onion of human history was opened further as a result…the maze of human memory became visible….the possibility of “piecing it all together” took on profound implications. And, in the midst of all this digital retrospection, they discovered a common thread.

2015: A Fully Woven World Focused on Jubilee

The potential to weave humanity into a unified function has never been greater. And the desire to do so on the part of humanity may be stronger than ever as well. The cause should be a global Jubilee.

What is a Jubilee: It has been said that forgiveness opens possibility, creativity and engenders unity. Forgiveness is the basis of a Jubilee. In the ancient world, a Jubilee was that time when everyone returned to their home field and all debts were forgiven. The world was reset in this way. For some this may seem impossible. But on a global level we must do it. We must reset this global community and begin again in the simplicity of forgiveness, the abundance of Jubilee.

Here’s the present context: The technology for discovering others with similar interests is here. The technology for initiating a project with a global group is here. Within a 24 hour period, a single message can be spread through enough of the world to cause awareness and action. And, of course, the technology for analyzing results is here, giving humans the power to instantly refine a message, to improve rapidly. Our collective ability to knit a completely woven world is here.

We love to work/play together: While it is true that sovereignty and independence is vital to the human spirit, it is also true that humans love to be united in doing something. This is the essence of romance: to unite with others and become one. On a collective level, the excitement at a rock concert, sporting event or festival reflects this human tendency to join as one around a cause. We love to work hard and play hard, to push and to rest, to breathe in and breathe out. The image here is of glasses raised in a cheer at the end of a day.

The moment has arrived: Now is the time to integrate the best of the past and the best of the future. Now is the time to study globally popular past projects that helped humanity. Now is the time to weave our incredible technologies with our perennial love of life for the betterment of all. Now is the time to activate the joy of youth and the wisdom of the aged in a blossoming, an opening. And there is no better global celebration than forgiveness and Jubilee, a reset for all.

Imagine this vision as you reset this summer. Let it seed deeply. 2015 is close. We can do this.

Deep Transparency requires Deep Compassion

To face a real demon, you must first look inwards and conquer your own darkness. ~Luis Marques

Humans have brought two distinct digital worlds into being during the last 10 years: an “exterior” world of websites & apps and an “interior” world of emails, texts & private messages. The veil between these worlds is growing very thin.

A significant layer of privacy is being quietly withdrawn: your Google & Facebook searches are already public information. Soon your emails, texts & private messages will also be searchable, first by marketers and then by anyone.

But have no fear. Transparency foments evolution — to see “everything” creates more choices and opportunities. We are a species that can hold the occult with compassion — the hidden material of life can be met with grace. Your attitude towards this change is an important deciding factor in how you will be affected by the cultural shift of opinion regarding transparency.

So, ask yourself now, will you still love your best friend, your spouse, your community, when you can discover their Facebook searches, when you can read their emails & texts, when you can listen to their phone calls? Will the private opinions of others cause you to boil with rage & jealousy, or will you surrender to the freedom of “truth”?

Certainly, a massive period of resistance to the invisible is currently occurring. This is because everyone knows how powerful the hidden realm is. What you cannot see is currently animating what you see. Leaders with high stakes and numerous other special interests groups are the only obstacle to a totally clarified eco-system of data. And, as we have seen through Assange and Snowden, this is changing — the “truth” is coming out.

Transparency can potentially be used by the collective to quickly resolve serious issues affecting our survival. The truth really can set you free…and a culture where this freedom reigns already exists on this planet. This new culture is similar to the free love generation of the 60’s: people who are comfortable being “naked” in the digital sense (and probably in all other senses) and who are compassionate with the shadow material of others.

So what will it be, my friend? Will you continue to worship the cabal, to bow to the coven, to respect “privacy”? Or will you open the invisible, display the full archive of secrecy, grow comfortable with the next layer of “truth”, of “reality”.

It is easy to bring shadow to the forefront and call upon the hangman, the man with the axe. This is even banal. It is not so easy to open a book of “Deep Transparency” and be compassionate.

The world is about to discover whether it can forgive its devils or whether it will perpetuate a culture of war.

As a person who daily analyzes and studies signals in social networks, I advise you to practice opening your kimono completely with those you trust. Test your ability to have grace on yourself and others in such a circumstance. As a culture, we must be ready to stand naked before one another and come to this process with humor, grace and, above all, deep compassion. This is our only path away from total destruction by the cabals, the covens and the secret societies that continue to rule our human domain.
