What I can do for now is use the fullness of my being to see if I can draw individuals, organizations, and communities into awareness and communication with one another, and curate access to solutions that will help them develop towards their potential and flourish.
When either pain or necessity demands that we collaborate, we have far deeper systems and structures available and understand how to do that.

That Flow of Energy should ideally be balanced and optimized for the Reality we are experiencing at any given point in time.
This can be thought along two basic scales:
Ideally, our level of calmness or alertness, and anxiety vs. exploration, should be balanced appropriately relative to the level threats or opportunities in our environment at a given time.
Often, we experience our Reality that is at hand.as either under-energized or over-energized in a way that feels inappropriate or disproportionate to the
The foundation of relating properly to our Selves properly relative to a , and to begin advancing towards it in whatever small way we can.is to organize and integrate our
This is because we are inherently Where We Are.. It is impossible to remain
Understanding Where We Are Going and Why, and beginning to make some small progress , no matter how small, is the key to establishing a foundational Balance of Being, that in turn will allow the Balance of Energy in our to regulate itself relative to our Progress and Environment.
At any given time, we can have three basic orientations relative to the threats or opportunities thatthemselves to us:
In full advanced mode, we are curious and explorational.
In full retreat mode, we are overwhelmed withand .
As we advance towards our Valuable Goal, there are two basic systems that communicate with us to keep us alive and help ussuccessfully.
The first is our.
The second is our.
Human Beings are the most sensitive and advanced scientific measuring instruments in the world.
As we advance through the world, our bodies and minds take in and process an incredible amount of information. The vast majority of this information is processed subconsciously.
Based on the total subconscious processing happening on all mental and physical levels of analysis, our brains and bodies are in communication with one another and our Self.
Together, ourand cause us to experience a set of emotional and physiological states that act something like a traffic signal guiding us.
Remember, this Goal or it cannot function properly.MUST be calibrated towards a Valuable / Worthy
There are three basic elements of body to brain signaling:
These systems use mechanical and chemical signals to communicate to the brain regarding the state and energetic balance of the.
The balance of energy in the system can be conceptualized along a continuum that runs from full calmness to full alertness. In a state of alertness your entire being is primed for action and ready to move. In a state of calm your entire being is relaxed.
At one end of the continuum is pure, deep, relaxed, uninterrupted sleep.
At the other end of the continuum is what we experience as a.
Our Current Best Understanding is that these signals are received and mediated in the Prefrontal Cortex of the brain by the Insula (or Insular Cortex).
The Insula appears to operate like a hub that mediates between somatic signaling and the Prefrontal Cortex, which is often thought of as the seat of. It also mediates signals relating to systems of threat detection and fear, emotions, and the general homeostasis of the body.
The body uses these mechanical and chemical signals to communicate its state to our Conscious Awareness, with the Insula acting as the mediating hub between Consciousness and the total somatic signaling of the body.
When learning how to escape from the grip ofand , it is critical to remember that the is by default switched "on".
The brain then "turns down" the dial as it believes appropriate given the Internal Context and External Context. This is directed by the Prefrontal Cortex, via the Vagus Nerve, which is the main communication superhighway between brain and body.
To aid us on our Quest towards our Worthy Goal, our Prefrontal Cortex uses this information on our Embodied State of Being, along with the total of our environment, to to help us envision various abstract Potential selves, futures, and patterns of action we might take to advance towards our Goal.
These various imagined and envisioned futures represent multiple Potential or that could be implemented.
And the Worthy Goal.are of course relative to our
This is why Wise elders have said that without a Vision the people perish.
The function of our Conscious Agency is then to analyze this Total Set Of Potential Futures in the Abstract realm, and make a conscious decision to attempt to Realize the one that seems most likely to and .
This allows bad ideas and faulty plans of action to die in therealm without resulting in our failure / death in the Physical realm.
It allows us to assess likely outcomes and potentials of various patterns of action prior to the implementation of our chosen Plan of Action.
Theof which Future / Self to manifest then informs the that are set by the Prefrontal Cortex.
When a Consciousness, we can be gripped by a lower order response to the or .or presences itself to us, if we are in a lower state of
When this occurs, thegrabs control of the executive functioning of our Embodiment and causes us to manifest very simplified and unsophisticated behaviors.
When we are gripped by the, it is as if we regress to a far lower and more elementary state of consciousness.
When we are gripped by any of these Primordial Drives (flight, fear, war, rage, etc.), we lose higher order conscious direction. We lose access to the infinite stores of information, memory, pattern languages, sets of rules, and courses of action that would otherwise be available to us.
If we can stay present and not allow theto gain control of us, we open up the tremendous potential to access and consciously choose between a vast array of potential futures.
When one becomes capable of remaining conscious, aware and present in the moment, we gain Conscious Agency by creating for our Selves to optionality to choose among many potential courses of action and rule sets.
When we begin to access and assess alternate Futures / Selves / Rule Sets, our Mind sends signals back "down" to our body that begin to lower our heart and breath rates.
Our Consciousness is able, with , to grow exponentially in its ability to Conduct and Orchestrate all elements of our Being and Embodiment.
This Orchestration and Conducting that allows the Properly Ordered Symphony to manifest is not one of control, but of integration and alignment in service of an overarching and uniting Goal.
The various avatars (future selves) that could manifest themselves to Enact various patterns of actions (plans) are processed as .
This allows our dysfunctional stories to fail and die instead of us.
As a human species, we have come to the edge of the, and we are faced with whether we continue accelerating along our present trajectory and fail / die...
...or whether we allow some of the storeis we are telling our selves to die instead, so that we can progress onwards together towards.
We understand approximately how to do this individually.
The question is: How can we do this collectively, before it is too late?
Our individual and collective Consciousness is absolutely able to transform and heal itself through such a process.
And such a process can be completed within the next 3.5 to 7 years for All, without exception.
