There is a new way to be human. There has to be, because our lives are at stake.

In the old way of being human, the global economy, global conflicts and the seismic shifts of social media and technology result in uncertainty, anxiety and apprehension about the unknown. The old way accepts the cynicism of the world with a resigned, bystander-victim mentality about life. The old way of being is built on compromises, resulting in choices that compartmentalize your life and keep you from being authentically you. In the old way, spirituality soothes your yearnings but keeps you sedated on a stunted journey that ignores much of what life has to offer. Your life is deeply affected by the old way. 

And yet, you have a choice. 

Your unique humanity is part of the spiritual fabric of the entire human story. In fact, the Holy yearns for you to be 100% alive and profoundly authentic—because without your full participation, those who need you most will miss out on what only you can give. 

What if you quit accepting life as it is, and stop settling for so little? What if the world really can change? And what if that change begins with you?
