Week 10 – A New Story of the People

Charles Eisenstein begins the Ted Talk speaking how the little things people do matter in the world, even though the outside world might not be aware. Other countries see the world as more for you is more for me, while our country sees the world as more for you is less for me. This way of thinking can be adopted for a better world to live in. The new story is spoken to be adoptive of these types of thinking to help the world by many regenerative methods.  The old story way of thinking is that the individual is too small to have influence on the world when there is so many bigger powers on this world for it to matter significantly. The logic says what good could it possibly do, and this is a old way of thinking that must be changed. People think that force and shame will be the only way to change this mindset when that is not actually true. When people change the mindset of thinking that a corporate CEO is different then “us” and think that everyone is similar, not separate, will the movement be more proactive to see there is a chance. It goes to speak about love and not hate. I can see that the spread of love to people that technically is not one of “us” can change the foundation of the way people have mindset in place. Part of the love, speaks to the interconnection and reliability of people toward each other. The new story speaks in the personal level and how it starts at each and every person first rather then a group. He continues to speak about the lack of people working with our hands and continuing to work with nature hand in hand. The purpose of people is to work together and empower each other.

Eisenstein makes great points which people have to work as one and this is something that starts with people on an individual basis. We can’t sit and wait for a bigger force to begin this movement with force. It takes intuition to begin the initiative to think more regenerative and live a life with more interconnection with our neighbors.

  1. “Other countries see the world as more for you is more for me, while our country sees the world as more for you is less for me.” But which other countries? I, personally, thought the was referring to other time periods. Plus, yeah, our country sorta blows, but we can’t forget to make the distinction between people and state; you already know that theres always a few groups of good people left, so we shouldn’t shun them for sake of efficiency.
    And i think this last sentence here is huuuuge: “It takes intuition to begin the initiative to think more regenerative and live a life with more interconnection with our neighbors.” Intuition. We/it really are/is pretty simple. Anywho, revolution in the streets!
