In order to make anything change, just create the


space.That is not created by our actions but by our
presence." P.Senge

ComPassion
Compassion is not a relation between a
person in pain and the comforter, but
between two people of equal rank. We can be
Present in others dark places, if and when we
have already burnt ours, ie. We have become the

We need to fully experience all


that connects us within the human
experience. (Christ as Jesus ? ) PemaChdrn

Vaclav Havel
I think there are good reasons for
suggesting that the modern age has ended.
Today, many things indicate that we are
going thorough a transitional period, when it
seems that something is on the way out and
something else is painfully being born. It is as
if something were crumbling, decaying, and
exhausting itself, while something else, still
indistinct, were arising from the rubble.
(1994)

Transcending our
selves
In this postmodern world, cultural conflicts
are becoming more dangerous than any time
in history. A new model of coexistence is
needed, based on man's transcending
himself.

Knowledge

Knowledge is coordinated action

emerging from consensus.


Knowledge is not an object or data
you can own, it is a process
inspiring participation.

The New Culture is a culture of the heart, which leads


people to fraternization, to brotherly lives. Love will
manifest itself through the Heart. In the old Life Love
started with joy, and ended with sorrow. In the new
Life, however, Love starts with sorrow and ends with
joy. Beinsa Douno

It seems that the only real sustainable


advantage in our fast changing world
depends on how quick and deep our
learning can be in organisations and
in the whole of society.P.Senge,

Learning
Is not to aquire information on what we
already know,
Not even to master the skills of how to do

It means to create a generative space for the


unknown to emerge.
Learning is sweaming in the flow of meaning.

Inter Are
Do not try to save the
whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing
in the dense forest of your
life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your
life
falls into your own cupped
hands
and you recognize and
greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worthy of rescue.
