The Problem with Leadership

Control Over

The problem with hierarchical “control over” leadership is that it perpetuates crisis. It has its place when there actually is a crisis and fast sound decision making is needed with a recognized chain of command that involves confidentiality, but beyond that it is exploitative. For example, we have seen strong leaders emerge during times of war. When these ‘control over’ structures that are effective in war however, are maintained beyond the crisis they attract people who are interested in positions of power for influence over others and fulfillment of personal greed based agenda.

Creative Mother Earth

Creative Mother Earth

Self-organising and transformational processes are at the heart of evolution and of earth coming into existence as a creative living system with consciousness. Mother Earth has since brought an incredible diversity of life forms into being of which we are one. Humans have mobility and dexterity, an ability to manipulate their environment, and a creative capacity beyond that of any other life form on planet earth.

Beyond Industrialised Mind

To move beyond an ‘industrialised mind’, we need to look outside of the thinking that has created the problems. As the dominant worldview, the industrialised mindset has resulted in the destabilisation of systems and a rush toward the cliff edge of sustainability.

The new sciences that explore systems have revealed a more expansive and inclusive world view that offers solution and transformational outcomes. In this blog I provide an introduction to systems, the related concepts, and what this offers for a better future. I also highlight the incredible importance of indigenous and ancient wisdom for sustainability and transformation.

Thank you Heather, glad you like it. I really enjoyed making this video and will be doing more like it. I was out in the bush again on the weekend, at another special place I go to, and took a whole heap more video to use for sharing of experience in this way. Spent a lot of time connecting and enjoying the energy of Mother Earth. It is wildflower season here and it is a great time to enjoy the expression of beauty as well.

Unite Conscious and Unconscious Mind

We have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind. Amazingly, it is the unconscious mind where most of our information processing happens – 500million bits/second verses 500bits/second of the conscious mind! However, in todays world, the conscious mind has been conditioned and information exchange between the conscious and unconscious mind is often constrained. The good news is we can release these constraints and unite our conscious and unconscious minds for greater access to emotional healing, wisdom and intuition.

Creation Story

Stories are powerful. We all have personal creation stories within that determine our reality and experience in the world. These stories come from our history and often run unconsciously throughout our lives. If we don’t realise this, we will keep creating the same experiences in our lives over and over again. By being aware of the creation stories within us, we can interrupt the old stories and create new ones using the power of our imagination. Change your story, change your reality.

Release not control

We have a transformational blueprint within us. The new sciences tell us our mind, body, emotions and spirit is a self organising system that is self correcting and which has a natural ability for healing, growth and transformation. John talks about the work of The Nature Code which is to help people to free up the natural processes within them by connecting with nature, self, others for healing, growth and transformation.

Industrialised Mind: Opt out of the Game

Whether we like it or not, we have been born into an industrialised world. Over many generations this has had a profound effect on our minds, environment and society. Below I discuss how this worldview has conditioned our minds, shaped our identity and separated us from consciousness that is essential for natural evolution and transformation, and what we can do about that.

Thanks John
A very interesting article and I am coming more aware of this divide between the ‘scientific/rational’ view of the world and it’s dominance which is leading to self destruction.
I’ll stay tuned.

Glad you enjoyed it Vicki. I will soon be posting a blog called “Beyond Industrialised Mind”. For the first few posts I will be outlining a conceptual framework for a process world view. Then I will be able to write more specific and shorter blogs about how this relates to our lived life. Any questions or comments along the way are welcome.

Identity

John explains how our identity, personality and ego are conditioned by a modern, industrialised world. Using the urban landscape as a metaphor, he talks about how our deep, unconscious ‘natural’ mind can be constrained by the conditioning of a mechanistic and industrialised world. When we free our natural mind from this conditioning by connecting with nature, it frees up the natural processes within us to initiate a transformation of self and exploration of our full potential.

Entrain with nature for transformation

John explains the process of entrainment and how we can use it to connect with nature for healing, release, knowledge and transformation. He also explains what we mean by the ‘new sciences’ which include quantum physics, non-linear dynamics and complex adaptive systems. Phew!
