Foreword to the Croatian Edition of The More Beautiful World...
I really needed this right now as I am in the process of deep grief of the planet and being removed from the society and systems that ironically, I never truly felt a part of anyway.. trying to navigate my way to rise to co-create this Beautiful World as everyday it seems relationships are either deepening or falling away. Thank you for your magical words of hope 💜 (from Australia)
I woke up in a funk. On my way to grab some coffee from the local shop, I was noticing all the trash along the roadside, which didn't exist in such a volume before 2020. The recent diaspora from the major metropolitan areas has my little rural town seeing a huge boom and tons of development, meaning tons more waste and in a place that doesn't yet have the tools to manage these things. I've been keeping my heart centered on this idea that you and I both share of a new story emerging, so as not to fall into the nihilism of "humans are shit". It simply hurts to watch the desacralization of the beautiful forest I have lived in my whole life. In general I don't struggle too much with centering, but some days are better than others. Today is one of the worse ones. This article helped me climb back up on my horse. Thanks Charles. You are legitimately one of the only people whom I feel understands my own perception of this story as it plays out. For that I am deeply grateful. Bless 🙏
I always appreciate your articulation Charles and your championing of a collective movement towards a better future. I am hugely optimistic and largely in part because of your writing, the communities I have chosen to align myself with over the past 10 years make me feel directly connected to the groundswell - there is a collective spirit at work. Old structures falling away are a necessary part of the transition and I am awed to see how that is happening on a global level in a way I always sensed was necessary but could never imagine happening. I dont fear it but I have had the good fortune of 15 years to prepare for it since I actively and consciously chose to step out of paradigms of separation and competition.
Filled my heart this morning. Thank you.
I really appreciate this. It is so comforting to know that I am not alone in how I feel. Grateful for your words.
Thanks for fueling the spark of my dwindling optimism.
Reading this strengthens my hope and reaffirms my convictions. Thank you.
A beautiful introduction. So many of us have reached the same conclusion and understanding. A new emergent world of abundance is forming right before our eyes.
"Enightenment is a group activity." Yes! What is discovered between us will help us move beautifully through this space in between💗
I love this Charles. I also love how you shared Novak's artwork. I feel images are very helpful to kindle hope and inspiration. If you ever want to use any of my artwork, you're welcome, free of charge. See www.emmaburleigh.com for example work.
Yessss! Enlightenment IS a group activity!!! My prayer for years has been that we create a golden age of enlightenment achieved through the arts-- a renaissance for this age. It takes the artists and pioneers to take the dream and make it with their hands, words, dances and images. It takes more than hoping or praying to get us there, it demands passion and creative action.
You are not alone.
Thank you for sharing Charles, the book does indeed sound very 'of the moment' within the repeating cycles we have been witness too. I'm sensing it's important we put razor sharp focus on "a future built on a new-and-ancient story of interconnection, trust, synchronicity, and healing." Since we are the ones who can see beyond the veils, then it seems that we are the ones to re-vision and begin building the new Earth in each and every sacred moment.
Charles, please continue to feel encouraged. We appreciate your role in empowering our imaginations towards manifesting the "more beautiful" world. The increasing numbers of hopeful and loving are more than what it seems.
Yes. Religion will not bring back the "good old times". It was just another control system. The eye in the sky was as orwellian when it was "god" as it is now with science.
Tears for Fears - Break it Down Again
Break it down again
So those are my dreams
And these are my eyes
Stand tall like a man
Headstrong like a horse
When it's all mixed up
Better break it down
Oo, oo. Oo, oo
In the world of secrets
In the world of sound
It's in the way you're always hiding from the light
See for yourself, you have been sitting on a time bomb
No revolution maybe someone somewhere else
Could show you something new about you and your inner song
And all the love, and all the love in the world
Won't stop the rain from falling
Waste sleeping underground (break it down again)
I want to break it down (break it down again)
So those are my schemes
And these are my plans
Hot tips for the boys
Fresh news from the force
In the world of silence
"No sleep for the dreaming" say the architects of life
Big bouncing babies, bread and butter can I have a slice?
They make no mention of the beauty of decay
Blue, yellow, pink umbrella, save it for a rainy day
Pray to the power
Play to the crowd with your big hit sound
And they won't simmer Won't simmer
Won't simmer down
Play to the crowd
Last off to heaven just like moses on a motorbike
No revolution maybe someone else somewhere else
Could show you something new to help with the ups and downs
I want to break it down Break it down again
Break it down again (break it down again)
No more sleepy dreaming
No more building up
It is time to dissolve
We are truly living in the times of Revelations and as the veil is slowly lifting many people are waking to the fact that our world was never what we thought it was. We had been living a life of illusion thrust upon us by our captors. We have been dumbed down and fed lies to the point we no longer know who we are, our why we are here. Our entire history is false right down to the prison world we live in. I do not want to go back to the false normal we were living, nor do I want the N.W.O lies for the future. If I can't have real truth and real freedom, I would rather not be here at all. Peace and blessings.
