“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“There’s no use trying,” said Alice. “One can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” replied the Queen. “Why, sometimes I’ve believed six impossible things before breakfast.”

“If it’s not impossible, it’s not worth trying.”
When we created the Evolution Revolution early in 2015 with the help of wonderful teammates and visionaries, I set a goal of 10,000 members by New Year’s Eve. A lot of people thought that was impossible, and today we’re well over halfway through the year and well under halfway there. So maybe they were right. But I don’t believe it. And I’m asking you today to help us change this Goal into an Accomplishment: TEN THOUSAND MEMBERS BY NEW YEAR’S.
It’s very fair to ask: “Why? What does it matter how many members we have? Why lay down such a marker? Why measure success with a simple number?”
Let me answer by saying that this isn’t about measuring success. This is about making the impossible possible. And the impossible thing that we wish to make possible has nothing to do with enrollment, it has to do with achievement.
What the Evolution Revolution seeks to achieve is the igniting of a global shift in our most fundamental understandings of God, of life, of who we are, of why we are on the earth, and of how we can achieve at last our highest potential as a species of sentient beings through the simple process of completing our Soul’s agenda.
The chief problem facing humanity today is that we don’t know who we are. Some of us have forgotten that we even have a thing called a Soul. Others of us believe that we have a Soul, but have completely forgotten why it has taken on the body, what it is doing here on this planet, and how to achieve what it has set out to do.
The result of this basic misunderstanding is life as we know it on Earth. A daily experience filled with terror, violence, suffering, sadness, struggle, anger, and despair. And not just for a few of the world’s people, but for the majority of them.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We have created this way because we don’t understand what we are doing here. We don’t understand what God wants from us. We don’t understand who and what God is. Hundreds of millions of us don’t even believe there is a God. What they imagine life is about, God only knows.
And I mean that literally.
There is something we can do about this, but we would have to care enough to even bother trying. And what could make us care enough? Ah…let that be our question for the day.
The answer circles back to our reason for being here in the first place. The answer has to do with our True Identity, our Actual Agenda, and our Real Yearning. The identity, the agenda, at the yearning of the Soul.
If you would like to talk about this, if you would like to have a two-way conversation with me on this subject, let me know in the FORUM area of this website. If there is sufficient interest, I will set up an international Conference Call and we can have a wide-ranging discussion that could activate one of the most exciting global ventures the world has ever seen–with you as a huge part of it. But before we can ignite such an undertaking, we must be clear about who we are, what we are doing, and why. So let me know, by posting a comment in the Evolution Revolution FORUM, whether you have any interest in this at all.
Oh yes…the question about the 10,000 members goal…
The point is to make our voice loud enough that it will be heard when we begin in earnest to undertake the single most daring, and perhaps the most significant, project inaugurated by any organization of citizen volunteers in the past 1,000 years: Project Expand Beliefs.
The intention: to expand the world’s mind about God, and in so doing, to change the world’s experience of itself.
This can be accomplished only when we return the focus of our day-to-day activity to our Soul’s Agenda, and life itself to its Original Purpose.
Can we do this? Impossible, you might say. Ah, yes, I’ve heard that before…
