I was chomping at the bit before Occupy Wall Street to have a game to play. Now, I’m gangbusters. It’s the same objective as the occupiers – to make a world that works. I want to be riding that energy with others. What a good time it is to link up.
I’ve always loved this quote:
Seek, above all for a game worth playing. Such is the advice of the oracle to modern Man. Having found the game, play it with intensity – play as if your life and sanity depended on it. (They do depend on it.)…Though nothing means anything and all roads are marked “no exit,” yet move as if your movements had some purpose. If life does not seem to offer a game worth playing, then invent one. For it must be clear, even to the most clouded intelligence, that any game is better than no game. – The Master Game by Robert De Ropp
When I created my non-profit I named it Mighty Companions:
Now comes a period of settling down. This is a quiet time, in which the teacher of God rests a while in reasonable peace. Now he consolidates his learning. Now he begins to see the transfer value of what he has learned. Its potential is literally staggering, and the teacher of God is now at the point in his progress at which he sees in it his whole way out. ‘Give up what you do not want, and keep what you do.’ The teacher of God needs this period of respite…when he is ready to go on, he goes with mighty companions beside him. Now he rests a while, and gathers them before going on. He will not go on from here alone. – A Course in Miracles
So, I’m after a new wave of Mighty Companions.
What are the things that can get us to the tipping point, where there is fundamental new thinking going on? What can give new thinking a boost? The crop circles are but one mindblower among others.
I’m checking out whether there’s interest in Los Angeles for face to face engagements.
If you are fans of my movie, this is for you. You need to be willing to be on a team to spread the word about What On Earth?, and to rabble-rouse for other things that could wake the world up to a bigger reality than the one in which we are so violent with one another and abusive to the planet. (See Outside the Box Ideas, column left, for things we might play with.) This time, you have to be savvy about the internet and social media.
The invite to put our heads together is for Sunday, November 6, 3-8 pm, at my house in West Hollywood. Those who’ve come before know that thanks to my housemate, you get treated to delicious food, and that the crop circle phenomenon attracts very interesting people! I’m looking for responses from old buddies, people who’ve come to previous fan events, and friends I haven’t met yet. I’ve missed the pleasure of good company on a somewhat regular basis and hope there’s enough interest to do it again.
Make a Comment on this post to tell me you’d like to come. I screen Comments and unless you have more to say than that you’d like to take part – which I welcome and will post — I’ll just collect the info and won’t post it. If you are someone who wishes you were in L.A. to take part, Comment to tell me that, too. I’ll collect a list for what could develop into an internet branch of The Club of One Heart. And tell me where you live in case there’s enough response to set up live branches.
For more about where I’m coming from, which in essence hasn’t changed for a long time, see my archival site that I put up before the switchover to this format in 2001.
I pledge allegiance to myself,
Which is also all of you
And to the grand idea
Of which we are all a part,
With truth as reality for all.
