Harlem IS World Community

That is, it is a community that works for all. (The evidence is everywhere and it wants more)

Time and time again the "Harlem Experience" and happenings in Harlem represent, points to and demonstrates the possibility for peace in the world.  Community organizer Chet Whye is one dynamic man who has through recent years been perhaps the most instrumental person in building and creating community in Harlem.

I direct you to Chet Whye's photo albums on facebook, several of which depicts activities he's orchestrated and/or captured the illustrates my point.

You want world peace?  You want a community that works for all.  You want a happy and vibrant commuity? 

Harlem is one place you can look too for what's possible for the world.

Listening is as important as Voice

In fact, it is more important in my view.

In my last post, I wrote about the power of one's voice; that is one's speaking.

In this Ted Talk, Tony Salvador talks about the power and importance of listening for a better world.

He shares some strategies for being a better listener:  He says we must lose preconceptions of what is being said.  He says we must be vulnerable and open to new ideas, and to not be afraid to hear what we'd rather not hear.

He states;

We're hearing still, I beleive, what we want to hear, we're certainly not listening for what's not being said.

The information presented by Mr. Salvador coupled with the information presented by Julian Treasure in my last post entitled "The Human Voice... Creating Sound Consciously For A Better World" are keys to a better world when we engage in conversation using the "voice" as presented and "listening" as described.

The Human Voice

In his recent TED Talk, Julian Treasure decribes the power of the human voice.

It’s the instrument we all play.  It’s the most powerful sound in the world probably. It’s the only one that can start a war or say I love you and yet many people have the experience that when they speak people don’t listen to them.  Why is that?  How can we speak powerfully to make change in the world.

He suggest there are a number of habits we need to move away from.  They are as follows:

Penultimate (exaggeration)
Dogmatism (confusion facts with opinion)

In conclusion, he raises the following powerful questions.

What would the world be like, if we were to speak powerfully to people who were listening consciously in environments which were actually fit for purpose?  Or to make that a bit larger, what would the world be like, if were creating sound consciously and consuming sounds consciously and designing all our environments consciously for sound. That would be a world that does sound beautiful and one where understanding would be the norm.

So then, how directly to the point Mr. Treasure's talk is to the Creating A World Community Initiative that has as it vision the "consciously created community" that is described as follow:

A group of individuals who have chosen freely to take a stand and come together as one voice. That voice is the voice of the community where each one recognizes that he/she is vital to the life force of the whole. Newly inspired, they take ownership, bringing forth their highest expression of love, courage and integrity in reverence of the community. Their relationships are deep, lasting and authentic as they continue to stay true to the ever evolving consciously created community. They are moving together as a body of one.

I find this video supportive of our Creating A World Community conversation and the post with the same title as above inspirational and instructive.

I am magnificent! I am blessed! I am worthy!

I am steppping up to the plate and manifesting the vision of Creating A World Community

That is a World That Works For All.

That world is available to us right now by respecting, and in fact honoring one another, no matter their beliefs, opinions or views.  While at times we may find another's actions an infringement upon our freedoms, we are committed to engaging in a Conversation For Possibility with them that finds resolve that works for ourselves and the other without necessarily compromsing anyone's particular stance or action.

As you watch Shakira’s video “La, La, La” reflect how you will dare to have that Conversation For Possibility when you are challenged by others in your life and in doing so how that will contribute to making this a better world for all.

I Dare You!

Nelson Mandela

Born July 18, 1918, Mvezo, South Africa and died December 13, 2013.

Thanks to Google who celebrates the life and contributions of Nelson Mandela today on its main search enginge page, I am reminded of his powerful messages and work in making the world work for ALL.

  • No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion.
  • People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
  • What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.
  • Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.
  • For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
  • The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall.
