Countdown to a NEW WORLD

Yesterday morning -- before the tragedy in CT unfolded -- I began what I call a countdown to a NEW WORLD. I'll share here in case anyone not on Facebook has an interest in chiming in, or just connecting in your own way, silently.

We're working toward creating a NEW WORLD...one founded in Love, Compassion, Peace, Cooperation, Unity, Integrity and Truth. Join us in focusing on these New World Principles so we can manifest them, together. We MUST shift our present course.


FRIDAY, 12/14/12 -- 7 Days to a New World

1. SATURDAY 12/15/12 TODAY'S FOCUS: TRUTH




As part of Wishadoo!'s Countdown to a New World, today's focus is TRUTH. Most agree that we MUST shift our present course. A critical component of moving forward in Love, Compassion, Integrity, etc., is that we must be Truthful, with ourselves and others. A special section in the Wishadoo! forum was created to have an ongoing conversation about our Truths:

2. SUNDAY 12/16/12: UNITY

5 Days to a NEW WORLD! TODAY'S FOCUS: #UNITY

YOU ARE BUT ONE DROP, YET YOU ARE THE ESSENCE OF ALL.







In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, CT (being mindful of tragedies occurring across the globe each and every day), many hearts are broken. This collective pain and grief shows us is that we do not exist in isolation. We are intrinsically tied to one another. What you do and who you are affect
s The Whole. We are interconnected in myriad ways, both visible and invisible. To be fully human (and humane) is to recognize this connection and see yourself in others. This is the essence of The Golden Rule.

Our connection goes beyond Humanity, of course; we are inextricably linked to all life on Earth, and the Earth Herself. True Unity extends beyond Humanity to encompass all forms of life.

6. MONDAY 12/17/12: COOPERATION




4 Days to a NEW WORLD! TODAY'S FOCUS: COOPERATION

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.


That is a simple truth. It's also true that all change starts within, yet for it to manifest in the world around us and create the shift we seek, we must work together. We need more cooperation, less competition. We need to see that we're all connected, rather than view people as "the other."

It's time to have discussions about our priorities and values, and work together to put them into action. (We can discuss priorities and values here: http://tinyurl.com/c3mjrmq)

WE MUST REMEMBER THAT WE ARE EACH ONE PIECE OF THE UNIVERSAL PUZZLE.

12. TUESDAY 12/18/12: INTEGRITY




3 Days to a NEW WORLD! TODAY'S FOCUS: #INTEGRITY

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching. It is not conditional. It doesn't shift during storms. It is constant and unwavering. It is your inner image of yourself. In the sea of Humanity, Integrity is our moral compass as we strive to become Whole.

To create this New World we must embrace Integrity, not only in our personal
lives, but in our relationships, families, communities, businesses, governments, social structures and institutions.

Wishadoo! was build on a foundation of Integrity. It is a solid foundation. Please JOIN US at www.wishadoo.org, as we do the work of creating a New World. Invite your family and friends, too!

13. WEDNESDAY 12/19/12: COMPASSION

Last edited Wed Dec 19, 2012, 09:19 AM - Edit history (1)




2 Days to a NEW WORLD! TODAY'S FOCUS: #COMPASSION

Compassion isn't sympathy, it isn't pity. Compassion isn't some pie-in-the-sky, Pollyanna dream. It's not about "fixing" anyone or anything. Our vision of Compassion is discussed a LOT at Wishadoo!:

Compassion is to be lived, it seeks physical expression. It calls upon us to be tender, to be gentle and see the deeper reality of human possibilities. Compassion is recognizing ourselves in others and asks us to BE PRESENT, in spite of our human frailties and failings, and in the face of the world's pain and suffering. It is never about changing the world, it's about changing ourselves.

At times the most compassionate act is to be attentive and loving toward our own needs and dreams.

Please JOIN US at www.wishadoo.org, as we do the work of manifesting Compassion and creating a New World. Invite your family and friends! At its heart, Wishadoo! is a social network, where those of like mind and like heart are gathered with focused intent, with many tools to put these values into action in a practical way, including our Wishlist -- a "craigslist of Compassion." http://www.wishadoo.org/wishlist/

Many thanks to Wishadoo! member, Molly Rice, for the photograph which has come to represent the heart of Wishadoo! in so many ways. ♥

14. THURSDAY 12/20/12: PEACE

]

ONE MORE DAY TO A NEW WORLD. It is our choice. We can start anew, within ourselves, each and every day by making that choice, not only on 12/21/12. Learn from the past, release it with gratitude, and begin again. Forgive yourself, forgive others. Be mindful of making choices from a place of Love and Peace, not fear and anger; simple, not necessarily easy.

"Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."

BE LOVE
BE TRUTH
BE UNITY
BE COOPERATION
BE INTEGRITY
BE COMPASSION
BE PEACE

BE ALL OF WHO YOU TRULY ARE.

Please JOIN US at www.wishadoo.org, as we do the work of manifesting LOVE, TRUTH, UNITY, COOPERATION, INTEGRITY, COMPASSION and PEACE, and creating a New World. Invite your family and friends!
