Seeing the Light-Resources in All Primary Relationships

Looking through the lens of “how much,” I see the available resources, at all three levels of perceived reality.  At the possibility-light level, I am aware that what exists depends on what I give my attention to.  A simple example helps here.  If you have ever thought about going camping, throwing a party, designing a […]

Agreements on “How the Relationships Interact”

4th of 5 posts on “Lenses for Seeing Agreements” A third question now arises, asking how, through the agreements we make, the abundance and vibrancy questions interact with each other, the five relationships, and the three levels of perceived reality.  How do the agreements address all three levels of reality, for you, me, us, nature, […]

Why Utopias Go Nowhere in The Circle

Utopias, places where everything is perfect, are not real.  They are to be found nowhere, which is the etymology of the word utopia, from the Greek ou “not” + topos “place” or nowhere.  The recent movie The Circle suggests a utopian solution, where everything is designed to be nice.  Like many utopian designs, the basic premise […]

You Are The CEO — The Chooser of Experiences and Outcomes in Your Life

Who determines the experiences you have and the outcomes you achieve?  Can we humans choose these?  What does the “terrain” of human choice look like?  Is it in our nature to be able to choose? For thousands of years philosophers have explored the frontiers of the nature of the human being.  What they found was […]

iCo–The Power of Co-hosting

Colleagues in the global Vibrancy community have been working for many years on the concept of co-hosting.  We have found it to be a very powerful way of inviting and leading much greater impact resilience. First of all, what do we mean by co-hosting?  We started with the analogy of a party.  Are we holding […]

The Metamemetics and Epimemetics of What Homo lumens Experiences in Human Agreements

Are people predisposed to unconsciously accept and consciously choose certain kinds of agreements?  Do some people tend towards more vibrant or less vibrant experiences of the five primary relationships (to self, other, group, nature, spirit)?  Are people conditioned by the group’s agreements or do individuals condition the group’s agreements?  Do the agreements of a group […]

The Regenerative Power of the Tangibilization Process

We human beings require heat energy to live.  Through the process of living, most biological beings take in energy, break it down into useable parts, and then release the remaining energy, which other beings then take in.  Where does this energy chain start?  How is it generated in the first place?  It starts with light […]

What Could You Do With a Surplus of Human Energy?

“Calories measure the energy resources of a civilization, and with a surplus of calories .. early communities were able to invest in infrastructure and organizational complexity” (Jonathan F.P. Rose, 2016, The Well-Termpered City, New York: Harper Wave, 44-45).  When there is no surplus,  focus is on getting enough calories–what comes in immediately goes out.  With a […]

Is Your Awful Day Better Than My Okay Day? — The Hills and Valleys of Human Agreements — Seemingly Similar Terrain, Different Map

Sometimes we have great days, sometimes okay days, and sometimes downright awful days.  Most of us seem to experience all three.  Some experience more great days, others more okay days, and others more awful days.  When we experience great, okay, or awful days, we experience similar realities, right?  Our emerging picture of the social topography […]

Agreements Field Mapping

You interact to have experiences and to get results. That is why you do what you do. The agreements you consciously choose or unconsciously accept define how you interact. Those agreements are based on embedded, interwoven assumptions. Our experiences, outcomes, agreements, and assumptions form an “agreements field.”  A field is the environment in which individuals […]
