Cosmic storyteller and corporate shaman Jim Channon explains Project Earthrise (Part 1)

Project Earthrise (Part 2)

As the VisionForce team prepares for a summit in Hawaii with corporate visioning expert and futurist visionary, Jim Channon, in February 2008, we find ourselves naturally dancing with Jim’s vision.

Imagine this scenario….

1. Oil companies realize they are liquid transportation companies and start to move fresh water to needy places on the planet.

2. Major engineering companies respond to rising seas and create canals that take the excess water into barren lowlands inside the continents where it is needed.

3. The national military forces of the planet merge to form natural security teams and restore their respective parts of the earth's forests, plant life, watersheds, wildlife and the biosphere above all that.

4. That schools recognize that content is already available on line and change their courses to life skills, learning based pursuits, and a new partnership with nature.

5. That Universities build upon the science of conscious evolution, a visionary mindset, and life force living intelligence and then structure their experience based curricula to that end.

6. That government decentralizes into bioregions and organizes military units, school kids, fire departments and others to generate food foraging forests in all available sites for complete global food security.

7. That neighborhoods take on a wide variety of energy producing solutions to become fully independent but not totally separate from the power grid.

8. That web-based democracies attend to their regionally based constituents and use the global web intelligence system to optimize local living.

9. That railheads, airports, and warehouses converge to be able to launch global air rescue missions that deliver major emergency living villages to all peoples globally within hours of a disaster.

10. That the global public achieves a clear unifying identity and the pre-emptive political power to defang the nuclear arsenal and its fear based factions while offering alternative product lines for the military industrial complex.

11. That we accept the notion that life is more likely to exist in the galaxy than not and prepare for the real benefits of new connections.

12. That we embrace a new level of profound simplicity and reintroduce creativity as a replacement for things and mindless entertainment.

Hey Antares...!
Reconnecting to your world and my dormant hippie side... and it's nice! Even though Channon's vision as listed above sounds more idealistic than practicable (#1: besides the lack of the profit motive, oil transportation channels wouldn't align with flows to and from where water is needed, would they?), some of them reverberate with ideas I'd for some time buried within myself and that are valuable in and of themselves, eg #4, that instead of churning out drones (as well as consumers) for the industrial machine, schools should focus on what would make the children happy in their lives, I reckon...

My world and your world, sweetheart, are they not the same? Perhaps not... or we would have spent much more time together than we did! But it's always a joy to see or hear from you - and you know that will forever be true :-)

Jim Channon's use of the phrase "Spaceship Earth" reveals that he has learnt much from R. Buckminster Fuller - the unlikely inspiration for a popular self-reinvention seminar called 'Money and You' which has been disseminating the notion of Win-Win scenarios and cooperative synergy for decades to corporate types. The paradigm shift happens invisibly. First nobody believes you and then suddenly it seems like everybody has always known something to be so. Einstein said: "If at the first an idea doesn't seem absurd, it will probably prove to have no validity" - or something to that effect (I'm quoting from memory!)

We may have been tuned to different stations and we may have danced to very different beats - but the love that links us makes it all quite irrelevant. Now you're a parent too and you will want your child to experience heaven, not hell. And both reality options essentially are holographic projections of our own ingrained beliefs, though other lifeforms certainly have a large say in how reality manifests.

If the so-called powers-that-be appear almighty now it's only because the mass media have conspired to make them look that way - yup, it's amazing what Hollywood-style hype can do to influence human perceptions and behavior. An integral part of the maturation process is reclaiming power from our parents; likewise we'll have to reclaim our authority and sovereignty from the corporations and the bureaucracies that have usurped it for so many generations!

Come visit in 3D soon :-) xoxox

Corporate shaman?

Oxymoron, I say!

Ha ha, and I hardly blame you for pointing that out, Sharanya. I felt an ironic twitch in my thinking muscle too - and I for one maintain a healthy skepticism about folks who attempt to "work within the system." However, I did scan Channon's energy and took a look at his website before deciding to plug his Project Earthrise on this blog. Most times I'd rather admit to being mistaken and be called gullible than reflexively block out anything that triggers my own built-in prejudices. So I'm giving Jim a chance. I must confess that what convinced me that this man is a bona fide visionary was his Arcturian connection. Few humans are aware of this, Sharanya, but the Arcturians have been quietly transferring evolutionary codes into the quartz beds around sacred spots like Mount Shasta and then planting their emissaries on the planet to seed receptive minds with
new blueprints. I'm not Arcturian myself but I have good friends who are and they're a solid bunch of evolutionary guides who generally prefer to work along technical lines, bringing about engineering breakthroughs and so on. Indeed, there are a great many things occurring right now on our dear old planet below the radar of public awareness and well beyond the ken of those who think they're in the know - this explains my general optimism :-)

Speaking of oxymorons: the faction most receptive to Bucky's design innovations was actually the Pentagon which ordered hundreds of geodesic domes for their research facilities in the Antarctica - and on the dark side of the moon!

End of the day, if you think of a shaman as really a showman (and almost all effective showmen are powerful shamen), then the oxymoron might seem a bit less moronic :-)
