Entering the Century of Dialogue

Universal Intention - accepting the challenges of today and taking action

Universal Intention – accepting the challenges of today and taking action

A historic event was unfolding over Peace Weekend, Sept 20 & 21 ’14. The Dali Lama gathered the 9 religion’s of India together to discuss secular ethics and the environment of the world!

The Dali Lama declared the this Century the Century of Peace and how to achieve it – a Century of Dialogue!

Renee of Inside  was inspired to create this image as she listened to the plenary sessions of this historic gathering. The leaders of the nine religions in India gathering together for a dialogue. What Renee heard from these leaders was in tune with her philosophy and life’s passion. Peace will only come through mindful dialogue. The three things she enjoyed hearing from these sessions was: 1. We are all the same. there is no difference between us. 2. We all need two things, grain and clean water. 3. If the water is polluted??????, If there is no grain??????

Inside perspective of  why does a century of peace depend upon a century of dialogue?  

Peace comes from learning how to build a friendship based upon trust. Good friends are ones that have experienced you as trustworthy.  Bad friends are ones who have learned not to not trust you through experience. What determines trustworthy behavior?  Ethical behavior based upon shared values.

Values are universal and shared by all people.  We are  all the same and  we share the  same qualities of  human function.  These qualities are the four aspects of self;  mental, emotional, physical  and belief.  We all have the same needs for relationships,  survival and happiness and are entitled to achieve happiness in our life.  We are all entitled to relationships built upon respect and equality.

How can we create a culture of ethical behavior?  Through education, practice and commitment.  It begins with accepting the challenge and taking action.  It is only through personal change that one can be the change they want to see in the world.

A great starting point is learning a vocabulary of values.   Inside value programs are designed to start where you are and available for personal development, for the office, organization and education institution.  They are available for both adults and children.

InTouch Talk App ~ In Testing stages ~ Launching this month!

InTouch Talk App

Intouch Talk encourages understanding and connection in relationships.  Using easy tools in one’s practice can focus one’s attention turning experience of “no choice” into having “choice.” 

InTouch Talk focuses on “universal values” and developing one’s inner vocabulary of “value needs” and felt sense “feelings.” The next step is practice.  Combining the two,  learning and practice, opens ones conscious awareness and transitions ones from unconscious habitual behavior into one of conscious awareness.  At this point of conscious awareness one is more willing to exercise self-empathy and empathy for others.  It is this heart-felt connection that increases ethical behavior and is the point of caring that creates change.  “This is “green behavior.”
