The path to co-evolution
gemeinsam und bewusst für eine gesunde Welt
We draw a path for how, from our individual self perspectives, human beings can approach ecosystem consciousness through collective experiences. The path is not linear. The strands of development for the individual – as well as the collective – run parallel, are mutually dependent, have a feedback effect and interact with each other.
how am I, what can I do, and what do I want
A reflective process that moves one from merely existing to an awareness of oneself by addressing the questions: how am I, what can I do, and what do I want. The many small individual parts of the self are found and assembled through this process. In combination with one’s own authenticity – i.e. the idea of recreating oneself in accordance with the Self – a holistic picture of one’s own identity is enabled. This provides the answer to the question of “who am I” and empowers human beings to take authentic actions in accordance with their own autonomy. With this consciousness, Homo Sapiens learns to determine his own values and create meaning for his own life.
Change of perspective
Seeing another’s point of view. As a passive process, the change of perspective can be compared to an awareness of the diversity of people and their thought patterns and opinions, without performing any action as a result. The focus is on tolerating others and accepting differences. Here, individuality and conformity enter into a trial of strength in which the individual strives to preserve his or her own autonomy and at the same time to derive meaning from another’s point of view. The change of perspective triggers a questioning of one’s own ways of thinking and moral norms. It shows the person the necessity of his own positioning and the meaningful justification of his actions.
The ability to express one’s own perspectives, to reflect on other perspectives, to position oneself in relation to them and, where appropriate, to integrate them into one’s own. There is a constant reflection and readjustment of one’s own attitude. Co-perspectivity is the state in which the diversity of perspectives is implemented in consciousness. The individual consciousness includes the perspectives of others situationally and holistically and integrates them, provided that they are consistent with one’s own set of values. All attitudes are perceived as equal. A purely egocentric pleasure/unpleasure rationale gradually becomes more abstract and develops into a new establishment of norms that breaks with conventions.
what can we do and what do we want
The finding of oneself in the context of the collective is a continous reflexive process that addresses the questions: how are we, what can we do and what do we want. The subject here is “we”. The collective consciousness as a spiritual unity and as the seat of the collective will is that which determines the actions of the collective. All participants work for the good of the community. Supported by trust, transparency and security, a process takes place that integrates the whole into one’s own being. Diversity, tolerance and equality represent the shared strengths of human communities. A constant feedback to self-awareness takes place and the two processes develop a reciprocal relationship with each other. Collectively recognized ideas, values and knowledge bases that have been historically handed down, manifested through society and anchored in the individual merge – and in this way something new is created: the answer to who we are, and with it the group identity, the world view of the collective consciousness. Collaborative action emerges; the basis for diverse forms of society.
A reciprocal culture of inspiration in which different creative thinking skills are connected with each other and thus develop visions playfully and easily in the interaction of different influences through the ingenuity of the collective we. Underpinned by lateral thinking patterns, the focus is on generating, exploring, developing, reflecting and discarding ideas – total immersion in co-creative flow, far from conventional thinking patterns – emotional and free. It’s about ideas with valuable input for a society that lacks it. In co-creativity, the primary creativity, a creative impulse from within, free of evaluations and rationality meshes with the secondary creativity, the critical questioning of the idea as a reality check. In addition to developing ideas, a process of connection takes place on an emotional level between people who work together co-creatively. Intrinsic motivation and co-perspectives are essential for this process.
The realization of co-creatively consolidated ideas and the stabilization of a space in which visions become creative processes. Primary and secondary creativity are inclusively connected, resulting in manifestation. This happens on the basis of mutual mindfulness, sense of responsibility, foresight and trust, as well as on a common canon of values, a common identity – the we-consciousness. Individual qualities are seen and applied in a targeted manner on the basis of an intrinsic motivation, whereby many diverse people are involved in the process as part of the whole. This whole, the project, is in turn also seen only as part of another whole. This is achieved from the point of view that each activity is of equal value and is seen as an essential part of co-creation.By combining the various creative competencies and the mutually inspiring resonances of the individuals, each participating individual, carried by the We, becomes here the shaper of his or her own life.
The understanding that everything interlocks, is a part of, lives with and through everything else, exponentiates and extinguishes itself. Seemingly unrelated phenomena that are distinct from one another are recognized as interrelated and interwoven. They condition and complement each other, despite apparent separation.
The world is seen not only in terms of its factual connections, but also in terms of its emotional ones. It is about recognizing correlating systems – ecological, economic, social, cultural as well as political. Co-complementarity is an understanding that works locally, regionally, nationally, globally and universally. It is the recognition that all parts of a circle are what make it a circle.
how one is, what can one do and what does one want
A realization dawns that everything that exists is part of a whole; that everything has the same worth, and a sense emerges of an interconnectedness with all other elements, species and types on this planet. The human behavior of categorizing, judging and stereotyping falls away; the divisions of the world dissolve. Cultural identification is borne of equivalence and its multiplicity is seen as a social surplus. Boundaries of thought and self become transcendent. The personal need of fulfillment recedes into the background and self-centeredness is eliminated. It is no longer about the development of the individual; rather, identification with the communal – a holistic development of the world assumes greater importance. It is a consciousness that demands action: to recognize cycles, to live and to create real and wholesome perspectives. This paves the way for the holistic development of potential. Self-actualization takes place in the context of ecosystem consciousness and uses the qualities of individuals to bring about holistic change. Ecosystem consciousness is a reflexive process and addresses the questions: how one is, what can one do and what does one want – without a hierarchy and with equal value – and thus approaches the answer to the question of who one is.
Steadying and applying co-complementarity consciousness in the context of the world. Integrating knowledge of interconnections and systems into one’s own actions and viewing everything on this planet with the same value.
From the perspective of global equivalence, it is about understanding what changes are needed – small and large – to restore the ecosystem and to recover the human spirit.
It is the level of development in which everything on this planet is given equal space and lives in co-existence peacefully with each other.
Everything is one. One is everything. The human species assumes a supportive role on the planet and operates in a connected manner and on an equal footing with all other elements, species and types. All parts of the ecosystem develop in a holistic equality of evolution.
One is mindful, one is just, one is fair, one is free – one is one.
