Welcome to the companion monthly magazine to our upcoming book “From the Titanic to the Ark – Handbook to Survive and Thrive in Epic Times” to help you plan, protect and prosper!

We share important aspects in preparing ourselves for transformation. The hardest work will be emotional as we welcome a complete shift in paradigm (our view of the world and our relationship to it) – in other words there will be no familiar frame of reference since change at this order of magnitude is not history repeating itself. What's more, nobody has been here before....which is to say we are all here on the leading edge - no followers looking for leaders, no leaders gathering followers - we do the work together shoulder to shoulder…and we’re making it up as we go!

For our well being, it is crucial that we do so consciously! Should we be asleep at the wheel, we couldn't help but waste valuable energy resisting 'ever changing form' by projecting our perspective backward in guilt or forward in anxiety – this is giving away our power. Rather, by becoming self aware and authentically present, we arouse the genius within while summoning creative intelligence to work through us – standing ever ready to anticipate and harmonize with real time events. And of course, let us look to one another side-by-each for support and encouragement. The obvious starting point is right here, right now. Surf’s up – let’s catch a wave!

There's Beauty In The Breakdown

Key Distinctions/Insights: And taking this one step further, if we can agree that a transformation means exactly that – changing of form – than we realize that everything about the old must ‘breakdown’ in order to make way for the new - the ‘breakthrough’. 

However, before form can change, thinking must change first. The power of thought to cause transformation cannot be by degrees – it must be by order of magnitude of a complete paradigm shift. So with that said, this entire process unfolding in real time may feel enormously tumultuous and “out of control” (isn’t it already?) before we arrive at our new place. And the greatest work won’t be physical so much as it will be emotional and psychological.

Here's the best news of all! A breakdown cannot occur without a breakthrough - every breakthrough is attached to a breakdown - they come in pairs. In fact, a breakdown is your clue that the breakthrough is around the corner perhaps still hidden from view though absolutely on the verge of emerging into its fullness. Haven't we all had so many experiences that at first seemed negative and with hind sight proved to be an incredible blessing? When we recognize the landscape for what it truly is, we develop trust, faith, belief and confidence....then we can observe how good things accelerate on their way to finding us!
