Change Main Page
What is here and why ...
Articles in this area are presented under four headings:
1 - Global Change: Articles that examine the landscape of general change issues.
2 - Change Transition Series: Articles and topics based on a book written by Ed Ayers, the editor of WorldWatch Inst.
3 - Storm Warnings: Here are articles with a different perspective all together ... to get us to think about the times we live in and underlying realities that exist with the common change issues.
4 - Window's Overall Transition: A book outline that links to downloadable chapters. The entire transition from topic to topic in this outline is the origin for developing WindowView.
The book chapters cover an array of topics that span from the material to non-material aspects of our being. The book is not polished, nor formally published (but is copyrighted), yet the research and care in assembling these writings is evident in footnotes and background support.
The key to this window is seeing another side to a truth we understand from everyday life. This reveals the rest of the view on what life is.
The Key Is: Let's look at global and climate change from another more unique perspective.
This helps to build the WindowView Paradigm that in turn leads us to understanding our future—this perspective is a look from now to eternity.
A further word about why ...
Originally our articles intended a 'wow factor' concerning ominous global changes. There are serious issues arising from numerous forms of change. But, now we all know change, in one form or other, is happening—this is nothing new! In fact, today it's all old news!
The present set of 'change articles' offer a chance to explore the back drop to the current debate. A persistent and ever more complex matrix of changes will simply turn the heat up on the debate.
Primarily, what is changing in the earth's environment is really a driver to force humans to think about themselves.
This always starts in the realm of concern for our physical well being. Survival may seem the main issue. This misses a vital vantage point the window offers:
CHANGE ... as viewed in this window moves us to think beyond our material experience!
Consider ... does change relate to both a material and spiritual side to our being? The window is open to this broader view.
We expect anyone who ventures to talk about a spiritual side to change issues will be shouted down by fanatics who are over whelmed by their sense of needing assurance of survival now. They speak of saving the planet and saving us—now! They are short sighted ... the window looks to a far horizon and a bigger picture on life and purpose.
Keep in Mind: Change begs us to look at who we are and where we are going.
Also, the science and harmony areas will get you thinking about other aspects to life and purpose from additional perspectives.
Explore this area to think about change in the world, in the environment, and in the way people look at and regard life.
What might be different about the way you react to change if you see how life is unique, by purpose, and goes beyond the temporal experience lived in the present moment.
