Barbara Marx Hubbard often says: “Crises are drivers of Evolution.” Marc Gafni and the Center for Integral Wisdom have learned that in a very personal way.

As Maureen Metcalf puts it in her new blog-post “Leveraging a Crisis as the Foundation for Future Transformation By Maureen Metcalf:”

Barbara and Marc “are modeling the behaviors they teach as they confront this challenge, and are working to leverage what would for others be a crippling crisis and share the culture of collaboration and unique contribution to a conscious world. They are talking about an evolution of our culture!”

She even adopts Marc Gafni‘s language:

“…in the face of outrageous pain, we must demonstrate outrageous love.

Here is what that means to me:

  1. marc gafni, gafni, dr. marc gafni, marc gafni scandal, marc gafni smearIdentify where and how you can uniquely contribute to the world you want to live in. Identify your vision and values. What will you focus more energy on or start doing? What behaviors do you amplify, and which change based on your values?
  2. Identify what you want to stop doing so that the “old way of doing things” slowly withers to make space for a world that is more peaceful.
  3. Identify who you invest your energy in and who do you want to spend less time with?
  4. marc gafni, gafni, dr. marc gafni, marc gafni scandal, marc gafni smearIdentify how you can make these changes in your organizations. How are you creating businesses that thrive and evolve to create the next evolution of the world? If you are leading an organization, are you looking toward innovation in your products, your mindset, and your behavior? Remember that most of life is a package deal.

We each have unique skills and abilities, as well as life situations. We are each called to make changes in different ways. I invite everyone reading this to consider how you can invest your time in the positive changes you want to see in the world, as planting a positive seed can flourish and grow around the world as others contribute to the changes we have started. Others will continue to nurture it so that we can all help one another and soon we will have a forest of change.”
