From iKE’s forward for the book Wholarian Vision:
Have you ever had this experience? You are introduced to someone and you immediately sense a strong connection. You both feel like long-lost friends. As you talk and get to know each other, you find that you have much in common and communicate with great ease. There is a bond and a comfort level that defies the short time you have been acquainted, and a deep-down feeling that you have actually known each other a very long time.Now imagine having that feeling more often. Imagine recognizing each person you encounter as a long-lost friend and being comfortable talking to people you have never met before. Imagine a world where no one is truly a stranger and we all recognize our connections to one another. I am personally excited by that possibility and look forward to experiencing a world full of friends.
The good news is… it is possible. What I just described is the concept behind Wholarian Vision. Even though you may not have heard of it before, the idea has been around forever. Ancient philosophers spoke of our connection to each other and our oneness. Most religions refer to the beginnings of all life starting from a single entity. Even science backs the belief that everything in the universe originated from a single point in time and space. But contrary to philosophy, religion and science, we have lived as if our independence is more important than our interdependence. We have seen ourselves as completely separate from one another. And, more often than not, we have focused on our differences rather than our similarities.
Lately we have all witnessed the advent of environmental shifts, the continuation of global conflicts, and the results of unprecedented man-made disasters all shrouded by a general “dis-ease” permeating our societies. Much of this stems from the human persistence to make decisions from a view point of separation, not oneness. Rather than making choices that benefit the whole, choices are made to benefit a specific group. Instead of thinking of the long-term ramifications to the planet and future inhabitant, thoughts are focused on immediate goals and ego-driven agendas.
But, we have a choice. We can change this thought process now. By incorporating Wholarian Vision into our daily lives we can reverse these trends and begin to see ourselves as part of a greater entity. As Wholarian Visionaries we bring a global perspective to our decision making process which helps us all make healthier and more meaningful choices. And, by recognizing ourselves as part of the whole, we are less likely to try to cross the finish line alone and more likely to do what is best for the entire team.
s a seminar leader, filmmaker and writer, I love to inspire people in every area of their lives. And leaving this world a better place for my two beautiful daughters is one of my greatest hopes and dreams. I truly believe that if we all realized our interconnectedness and lived our lives with Wholarian Vision, we would accomplish this goal. I have no doubt that oneness is the true reality and we need to wake up to the concept in order to create a more sustainable way of life for ourselves and for future generations.
One of my favorite mantras is, “All that I see is me.” Quite simply, this is what Wholarian Vision is all about. As each one of us awakens to this reality, we realize the power of One… One love… One life… One world.
