We Are Living Our Lives In Boxes of Our Own Making

Common Personal Beliefs

  • "My life has no meaning. There is no purpose to life."
  • "This is as good as life gets. This is how it is, and my life cannot get better."
  • "My emotions come from a reptilian part of my brain and I need to overcome them."
  • "My stress, anxiety, and depression are mental illnesses."
  • "Suffering as I do is a fundamental part of life, and I cannot change that."
  • "If I think positively about life, then everything will be alright."

Common Societal Beliefs

  • "People are lazy. You have to have a boss tell you what to do."
  • "People will not work if they are not forced to have a job."
  • "Nature is ours to control and dominate."
  • "Human nature is about competition, winners, and losers."
  • "People must turn to the private sector or government to fix society's biggest problems."
  • "The right answers are only held by either the religious traditions OR science."

Time to Declare Our Interdependence

"The further human society drifts away from nature, the less we understand our interdependence."
- Peter M. Senge

We believe humanity needs a radical transformation of how we view nature, ourselves and how we can collaborate

Recognize Nature As Life - Declaration of Interdependence graphic

Nature is not
ours to control

We recognize we are part of nature and wholly are wholly interdependent with its systems. Our bodies, our food, our air and water are nature.

Seek Freedom and Dignity - Declaration of Interdependence graphic

We weren't born
to live in boxes

We are reclaiming my autonomy by breaking free of the boxes of our own making. We seek the freedom from our limited beliefs and the beliefs institutionalized by society.

Live My Radical Purpose - Declaration of Interdependence graphic

Life does have
real meaning

We are reconnecting with our innate power to live life with Radical Purpose. Purpose is not a target outside us, it is a path inside which we can learn to follow.

Collaborate With Respect - Declaration of Interdependence graphic

Humanity is not only
about competition

We leverage our collective intelligence to bring about new ways of being, working and governing by working with awareness and transparency.

Make A Collective Impact - Declaration of Interdependence graphic

Fundamental change
comes from people

We were born to come together and make a purposeful impact on the world. Collectively there is nothing we cannot change. The power is ours, we need to make it count.

Radical quotes - quote icon

Neither working for someone nor paying someone's wages ought to give you power over them.

Mary Parker Follett, Management Consultant

Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning.

Viktor Frankl, Psychologist

Albert Einstein, Physicist

If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.
