In his January blog on Substack.com, Charles Eisenstein lists some old stories that humanity has acted on as real and some Next Stories which are the explorations of another reality for humanity. Many of us have been explorers of the Next Stories already in one degree or another.
In April 2023 we will discuss five of the Next Stories. What evidence is there for this Next Story?
What would life be life if it became a norm for our society?
Tuesday Dates: April 4,11, 18, 25
Tuesday Time: 10:00am PT. (11amMT; 12 noon CT; 1pmET; 6pm GMT) This supports our European friends a time to join the discussion. Everyone is welcome to both calls.
Thursday Dates: April 6, 13, 20, 27.
Thursday Times: We will meet for one hour weekly on Zoom, 5:30pmPT on Thursdays. (5:30pmPT,6:30pmMT, 7:30pmCT, 8:30pm ET)
There are 29 Next stories identified by Charles Eisenstein in his blog in Jan 2023. Read the blog and get as excited as I am to talk about these ideas and the evidence in our lives that the next stories are beginning to be lived not just dreamt!
For those of you who write Creation Exercises, we can also explore how those can be part of our discussion and exploration!
April 4 & 6
Old Story: The events and people we encounter in life are basically random.
New Story: Every person we encounter and everything we experience mirrors or reveals something in ourselves. Synchronicity reveals an implicate order to the world.
April 11 & 13
Old Story: Change happens through the application of force. Therefore, human progress means greater and greater ability to apply force, and to manipulate the world with greater and greater precision.
New Story: Force is but one means through which creative intelligence is made manifest. The universe operates through morphic resonance: any change that happens anywhere, no matter how small, contributes to a field in which that change happens everywhere.
April 18 & 20
Old Story: The world outside the human is deterministic or random. It has no innate intelligence or order. Life evolved essentially by chemical accident.
New Story: Intelligence, order, and life are basic properties of the universe. The world is full of beings, and of being. Order and complexity emerge spontaneously out of chaos.
April 25 & 27
Old Story: The great purpose and destiny of humanity is to bring order and intelligence to a world that has none of its own.
New Story: The purpose of humanity is to participate in the unfolding of life and beauty in the cosmos.
Elektra Porzel, the Director of the Language of Consciousness Institute, will lead this discussion group as we explore how we see each Next Story evidenced in the world and in our personal searches. More of Charles Eisenstein’s thinking can be found in his book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible. Recordings will be available to those who participate.
