We can work in our own communities, we can think globally and act locally. But another thing we can do is to think better thoughts about the world, to challenge our own negativity biases and to have better conversations.
As Ken Wilber says, ‘Thoughts are things.’ There is a morphogenic field of thinking in the kosmos. To think a higher-level thought is actually a contribution to the kosmos. To have a higher level conversation is a contribution to the world. Don’t minimize that.
So watching your own thinking is one thing you can do. And then, get out and open your eyes, and your heart, and your mind, and your hands, and your wallet, and do some good.
“Having higher-level conversation” is one of the things I’m focusing on these days. One way is by hosting the Integral Living Room gathering (with Diane Musho Hamilton and Terry Patten) October 9-12, at The Integral Center in Boulder. We do conversation as a practice.
