Are the Forces of Greed and Ignorance Too Entrenched?

One of the most important ways in my experience to gain new knowledge, to have new ideas and to share new ideas, as well as to explore new fields and nurture creativity, is dialogue. I have used dialogue with scientists, philosophers and business people. The form of dialogue has become my main mode of working and of gaining knowledge. I do read a lot of books also, but I will read books especially when they follow a dialogue or when they are supported by a dialogue. Dialogue is an exchange of ideas that involves attentive listening, a spirit of trust, a spirit of cooperation, a readiness, an openness to new ideas, and all of that needs time. In most interviews, you really don’t have that time, but this program, New Dimensions, makes the time. This is why I admire New Dimensions so much, because for years, for decades, you have carved out the space–the physical space, the space in time, the emotional space, the conceptual space, the interpersonal space–in which true dialogue can take place. This is why I admire this program and am very happy to return to it again and again to have genuine dialogue with you.

Are the forces of greed and ignorance too entrenched? We say a resounding – NO! How many times have you said to yourself that nothing will change for the better because the forces of greed and ignorance are just too entrenched? Have you despaired of being able to contribute toward the good because you feel you are too small to make a difference in the face of the enormous challenges we face?

The truth is that for decades many social profit organizations and global activists have been working relentlessly and powerfully under the radar in moving the dial toward a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world. This is because of individuals such as you and these efforts are now becoming visible. The steadiness of vision is paying off. The kinds of breakthroughs, transformations, and shifts taking place are the result of decades of work, commitment, intention, and actions, both small and large, of many who have been tirelessly standing on the barricades of change for a better world for all.

 Let me ask you a simple question: WILL YOU SUPPORT THIS BUILDING MOMENTUM WITH A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION? New Dimensions has been seeding the public dialogue for over 40 years and we are looking to expand our efforts to reach more and more persons with these inspiring, informative, and life-enhancing dialogues. Be the change you want to see in the world and do something extraordinary by becoming a member/donor toward a world that works for all.

Join the New Dimensions team with a financial contribution now! You’ll be glad you did.
