Improving the Prosperity and Well-Being of Society

     The prosperity and well-being of our society has been built on our increasing knowledge and wisdom and our ability to co-create with others to build the world we live in today. One important resource I have found very valuable is Riane Eisler’s book The Chalice and the Blade. She concludes from her extensive research that there have only been two societal paradigms that humankind has successfully used to facilitate human survival. One she refers to as the domineering paradigm and the other the partnership paradigm. Her view is that “The domineering paradigm likely leads humanity to a tragic evolutionary dead-end, the equitable and sustainable partnership paradigm is both biologically possible and culturally attainable”.

    The process of learning how to love ourselves and each other enables us to be better partners in achieving the goals that facilitate the well-being of all. From my personal research I believe the primary challenge we face is not recognizing the need to embrace the partnership paradigm, but rather how to achieve the transition from the domineering paradigm while sustaining and improving prosperity. This website contains personal insights I have gained over my life’s journey. The foundation for achieving this transition is each of us hearing and pursuing the purpose of “Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let It Begin with Me.”
