“The illiterate of the 21st centurywill not be those who cannot read & write, but those who cannot unlearn and relearn.”
Two days into the transition from Israel to California, the first miracle is that I have virtually no jetlag and made the 10-hour time change instantly! However, after five-weeks in Tel Aviv, there is a very strange unwinding in my body but its unimaginably more challenging to accept what’s happening in my emotional and recognitive realities. What I’m realising is the almost unimaginable toll that comes with living in a nation state that’s constantly under threat from those outside its borders, and worse is living with the tension of being a divided land.
Listening to politicians and people on the street toss verbal sticks and stones is bruising my heart as heavy clouds attempt to darken my heart. Only knowing what I know, working with others who are open-hearted, open-minded, and serve with loving hands, and meeting others who get what the last 28-years of my life –and the rest of my life– are all about, is what keeps my head high enough to see the rainbow.
It’s time to understand that children who don’t really understand ‘the game’ of “I’m right, You’re wrong”, or “Us vs Them”. No parent or teacher can make sense or explain to a child what the politicians are up to.
Keeping my promise to return in two weeks is not an option, and I am begging for those who realise how privileged they are to live in a world without the daily threat of real war to help. It’s time for those who can to step up and become those who will , coming together to make a positive difference, living lives that display courage and a true reverence for life. We will soon announce the Director of the BeLonging Projects in Israel, and if you want to honour diversity and help teachers, kids and parents celebrate Unity, please donate to this amazing project. Raising a generation of adults who respect themselves and others is the key to the equality that is essential to genuine freedom. This project is an experience whereby kids discover that the assumption of unity without diversity is fabricated, and utterly fails. It’s about children learning to uphold noble principles and values that include the right to health and well-being, transparency, compassion, fairness and integrity.
Imagine the future with this and the next generation embodying these traits…
Imagine ‘Thought leaders’ understanding that living requires the constant renewal of the foundation that is essential to re-establish connections and keep communication clear…
The Mereon Matrix is showing us how to rebuild our lives and our relationships in order to harmonise our actions with the harmony implicit in Nature herself. The BeLonging Projects give children the experience of self-discovery and learning new ways to live with one another and on the planet. This programme helps empower the Future by lifting teachers, kids and parents to a new perspective, this, the only place from which they can clearly see the way forward, and then walk together to open Age of Transformation.
Thank you so much for passing these thoughts on and doing whatever you can do to help.
At the Heart of The BeLonging Project is true knowledge,
wisdom that makes it far more than a programme for teachers and kids…
it’s about learning to live wholly and fully and co-creating loving relationships;
it’s about building sustainable businesses and more!
