Can we choose to evolve as a species?
I’m sure that this question is not something even the wisest sages can answer with certainty.
That said, if you believe in evolution I suppose we all can’t help but evolve, right? I mean the climate is changing, the food supply is changing, medicine is changing, technology is changing… so, ostensibly, we do evolve to keep up with these changes in order to survive…right?
I’m most interested to see the kind of changes we can make as a world when empathy and compassion are prized as much as charisma and power. I’m fascinated to know what will happen if- or better yet, when- the power of love outshines the darkness still looming on the planet. I am waiting to see if we can choose more community or more me-culture.
I suppose it all comes down to that wise Gandhi saying: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
I’m pretty sure you can choose to grow and evolve yourself. Deepak Chopra thinks so. But I guess it comes down to whether or not you believe it is possible….right? Do you think its possible to consciously evolve? xoxo Dana
