#WWUC @NWCreativeUnion ~A Longer View

Keeping with what seems to be a running theme for the month...I'm stealing the inspiration from "The Celestine Prophecy" by James Redfield.

A collection of Nine insights, today's prompt comes from the second...A Longer View.  This insight challenges us to go beyond the common history...beyond the technological advances, beyond the trends and to the actual "thought evolution" of our history. If you could stretch your memory out over 1000 years...I think our milestones are much larger than putting a man on the moon...what made us even try? We are talking, within this physical realm, our almost "unseen" evolution.

Today, I'd like you to ponder our history. Spend some time with the quotes included. When did the shift start? Where can we expect to go from here? If you look back over the past 1000 years...where does it take you when you look towards the NEXT 1000.

1000 years back...1000 years forward....can you feel the weight of our evolution. Are we now prepared to learn from the lessons. Where do we go from here? Our planet is dying, our societies are struggling, the line between the have's and have-not's grows ever more defined. How did this do we change? 

  • Post a response to your blog in the creative medium of your choosing. Draft 1000 year timeline in charcoal, capture a renaissance in water color, write your way through the dark ages...however you are prompted, feel free to express it.
  • Copy the exact address of your post. Paste to Mr. Linky, add your name and click that submit button.  Just that easy.
  • Be sure to visit others who are taking part. Explore their work. Share your thoughts. Start a conversation.
  • Share, tweet, tumble and pin. This is what we are all about. Sharing the good work of others in  an effort to Wake Folks Up! This is our world....let's redefine our era and make this shift happen!
  • You have until Sunday morning to respond. No pressure...just some time to let your creativity flow.

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
