Reclaim Paradise; Reset for the Common Good
Our global society is facing unprecedented change, termed “The Great Reset” and “The New Normal.” In a societal reframing, what takes hold depends on the path taken. We can Reclaim Paradise on earth or fall deeper into Corporate Rule. Actively engaged in the reset are the corporate elite, we must also actively engage for the Common Good. By focusing on the local trigger for systemic change we can use proven ways to shift it to serve the common good. This is not about anarchy; it is about utilizing the existing system so that it serves the people, instead of supporting corporate greed and the removal of liberties. Maui County’s shift from Corporate Rule to Home Rule provides a template for global system change.

IN THE HIGH-ENERGY ZONE:the Six Characteristics of Highly Effective Groups
This is about what we all long for – what we need and desire most in life. We look for it everywhere: in our relationships, in our work, in our play, in religion or spirituality, in every arena where we hope for fulfillment. Ironically, though it seems so elusive, it is actually everywhere, all around us, ever available, all the time. Energy.
We may call it by different names: spirit, passion, enthusiasm, or life force. We may desire it in different forms: joy, love, health, abundance, well-being, and connectedness. But it is all energy. Everything consists of energy. When we speak of energy, we think of an invisible force, without form. Yet solid objects are intense energy patterns. What we call “feeling” and “mood” are actually flows of energy. All human activities and transactions are the result of flows, or exchanges, of energy. While this concept of energy may seem abstract, unrelated to the practical aspects of daily life and work, it is actually a presence and a factor in everything we do. It is at the very foundation of all that we do.

Paul Deslauriers’ exciting and motivating action manual - Seven Steps to Reclaim Democracy – is not about launching protests that go nowhere with today’s politicians. It is about replacing them with your elected lawmakers starting at the local and county level where “the 99% have a strong say…all the way to the top.”
If there exists a better book to light this path to electing good public officials, let me know. Ralph Nader
