Uprising! Arab Spring

by Louise Diamond, Global Systems Initiatives, Washington, DC

As people across the Middle East and North Africa rise up against repressive regimes, they are providing the rest of the world with many lessons: lessons in courage, in determination, in people power, and more. They are also offering us an exquisite example of complex systems change, from which we have much to learn.

I have often written about the shift in worldview that the human family is undergoing – from a reductionist, mechanistic understanding about how things are in the world that sees everything as separate, to a holistic, integral view that recognizes the interconnectedness of everything in a larger whole. The uprisings we are witnessing in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iran, Bahrain, and elsewhere are expressions of that shift. Continue reading

Balance in the Contemplative Life

by Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler, Contemplative Outreach Ltd., NJ

All who provide Contemplative Outreach services do so in consideration of, and in balance with their personal, family, and professional responsibilities.
- Contemplative Outreach Administrative Principle #7

Contemplation is both silence and action. Therefore as Centering Prayer deepens, it sets in motion the deeper desire to share what we’ve received with others from the depth of our silence. We share with gentleness, ease and balance and we listen for just the right moment to do so. We are not interested in sharing our insights, reflections and practices for the sake of self aggrandizement. Rather we are motivated in serving from self-emptying love. Continue reading

A Taste of Living Oneness

by Alan Zulch. Alan has been working for the Global Oneness Project and has just recently joined the Kalliopeia staff. He has a deep connection with Japan and with their traditional culture of Satoyama, which can be described as “a place where people and nature harmoniously exist, where biodiversity flourishes, and where the human spirit and creativity thrives.” For more articles, please check out Alan’s blog called Satoyama Spirit.

Earlier this year I had the great pleasure of visiting Jeffrey Irish, a fascinating fellow in southern Japan who, as an American expatriate, is garnering considerable regional renown for his twelve years of residency in a tiny rural Japanese farming village, including two years as village head.

Jeff came to his current position in an equally unlikely way. Following college he got a job with a large Japanese construction company and showed sufficient business acumen to be asked, with two other employees, to start a U.S. branch of the company in New York City, a branch which ultimately grew to 180 employees as he moved up to become vice president.

The Three Layers of Interconnectedness

by Louise Diamond, Ph.D., president of Global Systems Initiatives

What would our world look like if we understood that everything is interconnected? But REALLY understood it!

That question drives my understanding of national security and all the inter-related global issues and systems crises we currently face. Because we understand now that we live in an interconnected world, it behooves us to understand what interconnectedness is, and what it means for our policies on national security.

Interconnectedness is at the heart of systems thinking. Continue reading
