PROOF 21 – Forward Not Back

Hello Reader,

I just scheduled a COVID vaccination. I found myself thinking about things I might “get back to” doing, like travel, group exercise classes, and eating indoors at restaurants. I have to say, after the last year it all feels a little foreign. Not bad, just foreign.

A thought came to me – rather than “getting back to” the way life was before the pandemic, what if I consciously created life going forward? And, created it in a way that helped generate a thriving future for humanity, not just myself, my family, my community? What would that look like?

As we begin to engage with more of the world post-pandemic, what if we all took on bringing about a world that works for all? What might that look and feel like? What would that look and feel like in your life? What actions might you take? Who might you talk to that you haven’t before? What new conversations might you have?

I invite you to take some time to imagine what that would look and feel like – in life and in your life. Begin to generate what thriving looks like going forward – for you and for all of humanity.

All of us at NOW hope the stories below inspire you to dream big!

What We’re Reading – Reason For Hope

Dr. Jane Goodall’s revolutionary study of chimpanzees in Tanzania’s Gombe preserve forever altered the very, definition of humanity. Now, in a poignant and insightful memoir, Jane Goodall explores her extraordinary life and personal spiritual odyssey, with observations as profound as the knowledge she has brought back from the forest.

What We’re Listening to – The Soul of Money with Lynne Twist

This week’s guest Lynne Twist has worked her entire career looking at the soul of money and how it manifests in our lives due to a culture of money. She is founder of the Soul of Money Institute and has dedicated her life to alleviating hunger and poverty. Today, she is going to set the record straight on a lie we have all been living and help us find a future where we can thrive in our own life with regards to our finances. Lynne’s myths of scarcity, surprising truth of sufficiency, and a very simple solution to our predicament are sure to knock your socks off.
