The Awakened Learner

Awakened Learner

We began one of the final chapters in my recent book, Awakening from the American Dream, with this quote from business guru Seth Godin: “How can you squander even one more day not taking advantage of the greatest shifts of our generation? How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?”

America the Beautiful

hat a country! The mid term elections just completed (as of November 5, 2014), and cost a record near 4 billion dollars, including about $12 per voter each in Alaska, Iowa, and Arkansas. Voters in Kansas returned Governor Sam Brownback - despite the generally acknowledged failure of his tax cutting financial strategy that has emptied state coffers. Brownback’s opponent was leading in polls until a four million dollar infusion of funds during the final three months, plus the airing of TV ads that linked him to a Kansas Supreme Court decision to overturn death sentences in 2000 (He had nothing to do with that decision.) turned the tide. As one local aide quipped, “Hey, this is freakin’ Kansas, man!”

I concluded my latest book with a review of what we termed “The Five Primary Statements of Awakened Experience.” These are: I am enough, I am loved, I am needed, I am awake, and I am happy.

The Awakened Leader

Master Charles Cannon

The world needs a new kind of leadership. This is obvious on every level, from the most personal – being accountable for one’s own life experience – to global affairs. Who is capable of steering in safe, healthy, progressive directions?

In my recent book on Awakening from the American Dream we spoke about awakened leaders and one of their primary character traits: they learn. This stands in stark contrast to leaders who enforce their views, based on past success or failure, on present situations. They learn too, but in a fundamentally different way. Their learn how to adopt old strategies to fix problems (created by their same thinking), rather than learning new strategies and applying them to create truly novel results.

A New World

Commitment

As we enter the holiday season another chance to wipe the slate clean and begin fresh presents itself. The concept of “New Year’s Resolutions” represents our annual attempt to commit to new habits, healthier ones than those we’ve struggled with for the past year. In just a few weeks many people will be vowing to lose weight, to achieve more, to stop or start doing something. But, as most of us know, this is much easier said than done.
