Here at Creating the Future, today is a Monday of all Mondays.
Starting today, we will begin sharing what we have been thinking about, as we have spent the last few months asking ourselves questions such as
“What will it take to create the conditions that will lead to a world that relates to itself from our highest potential as humans?”
“What will it take for all of us to naturally and reflexively respond to each other with kindness?”
“And what programs can we develop at Creating the Future that will move this world towards that way of being together?”
Impossible? Hardly. Unless something is physically impossible, it is absolutely possible!

As Arnold Toynbee noted over 50 years ago, this modern world is in the unique position to “dare to think of the welfare of the whole human race as a practical objective.” As we begin developing the core programs at Creating the Future, that is precisely where those programs will be aimed – at our vision of a world that is thriving physically, intellectually, emotionally, creatively, spiritually.
The “Nonprofit” “Nongovernmental” “Civil Society” “Community Benefit” “Social Enterprise” “Citizen” sector is poised to create that world. We have no other motives but to make our world a better place. We have the resources. We have the knowledge. We are poised, ready, a force to be leveraged to create the world we all want.
Over the coming months here at Creating the Future, we will begin to engage that larger conversation about what it will take to create the path of cause-and-effect that can indeed create a more humane world.
For now, as you head into your week, please start each day by remembering WHY we all do this work. Take a moment to see the whole forest before the week drags you into the trees (and the leaves and the cells…).
Have a great Monday and a great week, all!
