A New Type of Darwinism: Survival of The Most Cooperative – Unity Consciousness

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you.
In between, the leader is a servant.”

— Max de Pree

When you were born, you were given a gift.

Do you know what your gift is?

Your gift might have been apparent from a young age or, like most people, your gifts developed and were recognized over time out of direct life experience.

More importantly, do you realize what this means?

It means you wouldn’t be here if you weren’t just as an important as anyone else in all the history of the Universe. Everyone is given at least one gift.

This makes you in league with Plato, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Dr. Stephen Hawking…

Right now, your mind should be blown. Or you might be half scared out of your wits because it means accepting total responsibility for your life — something that’s been sorely lacking.

Will you finally accept the latest form of your soul’s gentle swan song to be your best self, or will you continue to do things the same way you’ve always been doing them?

“To be or not to be.”

— William Shakespeare

One choice will lead you to your highest potential, the other to the barest existence — a slave to culture and conditioning, a.k.a. Society — where you forfeit your sovereignty and self-empowerment.

Individualism: Your Watershed Moment

You, and others like you, are presently awakening to the realization that everything in the Universe is interconnected and interdependent — an expanded form of consciousness called unity consciousness.

The initial stages of unity consciousness are measurable as the qualities found in emotional intelligence, a term brought to our attention by Daniel Goleman in his 1995 book by the same name.

Emotional intelligence comprises of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill. Do you recognize any of these qualities in yourself?

“True compassion means not only feeling another’s pain but also
being moved to help relieve it.”

— Daniel Goleman

Something happens in unity consciousness. Not only do you begin to take responsibility for yourself, you realize we’re here to take care of each other.

The simple act of taking responsibility, beginning with yourself,  automatically makes you a leader.

Collectivism: Sovereignty and Service 

Unity consciousness goes beyond the egocentric self, fully cognizant that in a symbiotic world, what you do for another, you ultimately do for yourself.

Collectivism recognizes the overwhelming benefit of aligning ourselves cooperatively rather than in competition for the common good to create win-win scenarios.

“Anyone who has ever achieved true greatness made the leap from separation to unity consciousness utilizing her or his gifts in service of humanity.”  TWEET THIS

Fuelled by the power of collectivism balanced upon a substratum of unabashed individualism, self-leadership has the power to transform your life and the world in less than a decade — something that took lifetimes, even millennia, to accomplish under the old paradigm.

And this time, no one is left behind.

First, you must understand that collectivism defined by unity consciousness is not the historical collectivism derived out of separative thinking that calls for self-sacrifice, which isn’t necessary in an abundant world.

Individualism is a critical component cultivating natural diversity and maintaining checks and balances and thus remains.

New Leadership Blueprint

In unity consciousness, individualism and collectivism unite to transcend egoic self-service, creating a supportive environment for the development of every person’s skills and unique gifts.

This is where you step into your power. This is where you thrive.

When you choose to take responsibility and live your highest potential, you have the support of the entire Universe behind you.

 “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self-empowerment and equality are the bedrocks of the New Leadership Blueprint that naturally bring out the leader within.

Yes, finally equality!

Neither you nor anyone else is ever asked to diminish your light for anyone else. In fact, the opposite occurs.

However, all things are not energetically equal. In other words, you will be pushed to let go of bad habits, destructive behaviour — anything in the direct path of your guaranteed success.

You will come to see that personal fulfillment and social responsibility become inseparable as you forge a new way of living and conducting yourself in the world.

Your Gift Is Your Life’s Purpose 

The new leadership blueprint invites you to step into your life’s purpose, which is your highest potential expressed through your strengths (gifts), also known as your inner genius, making you a beacon of light for others to emulate.

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

— Pablo Picasso

That’s all you must do to be a leader. Take responsibility and be on purpose!

Then, when we come together to do what we can’t do alone, we create a sustainable trickle-up world with enough momentum that it becomes its own power source.

Call to Action

You can dumb-down to mirror your surroundings, or you can consciously choose to create an environment conducive to the change you wish to see in your life and the world.

Napoleon Hill said, When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.”

Make a decision and never look back.

Generation Z’s TransGenerationals are doing just that. Our youngest generation will be the first generation like no other before us that get we really are here to create Heaven on Earth.

But, what are you going to do?

Are you going to resist? Cave to old habits that are getting you nowhere?

Or are you committed to discovering who you really are?

Courageous.

Focused.

Singular.

Good.

Worthy.

And that’s without even doing anything yet. Just wait! You get bonus gifts.

You are the gift. Give the gift of you to another.

Understanding Automation and the Digital Transformation of Labour

RPA, or robotic process automation, is becoming an increasingly disruptive force within the global economy. A complete transformation of labour — a Fourth Industrial Revolution — is already upon us, driven by advances in the areas of artificial intelligence. AI has already begun to impact both the philosophy and practice of business, and as it accelerates to include a wider range of applications, will become increasingly intertwined in all areas of life.

For millennial workers today, the workplace is changing beneath our feet. Technology jobs may offer flexible perks and benefits, and technology itself clears a path for efficiencies untold — but is there anything lost in the ongoing quest to further quantify, automate, and outsource natural human intelligence?  A thorough examination of its ethical implications is imperative as both its power and reach becomes more total.

The Evolution of Automation

The evolution of technology triggers an avalanche of societal and economic consequences. And the greater marriage of human intelligence to machine intelligence has, throughout history, meant many unforeseen changes. Incorporating more advanced AIs into our world means many new questions, as these bots are (at least in some sense) working as functional participants in society. How should they be programmed to make choices that reflect an ethical awareness and responsibility?

AIs, fundamentally, are computer programs capable of autonomous decision-making. Within the last 300 years, automation technology has disrupted the lives of all human workers. When work first moved from the farm to the factory in the 19th century, labour met a new reality — the meaning of a “job” was redefined as people left behind an agricultural life for public work in mills and factories powered by machinery. Automated manufacturing gained further momentum during World War II in the manufacture of military supplies. In the 1950s and 60s, following the war, the United States experienced a second period of industrial upheaval. Many companies introduced newly sophisticated computers to the workforce, automating processes and functions to gain competitive advantage.

Gaining Momentum

The 1960s were defined by a willingness and a capacity to challenge the status quo — in 1964, IBM introduced the first mass-produced computer operating system, setting to motion today’s fast-paced era of digital innovation. Today, the combined force of digital technology and automation continues to redefine the nature of “work” and what the future of jobs will look like.

Erik Brynjolfsson, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and his collaborator Andrew McAfee, imagine that “Digital technologies — with hardware, software, and networks at their core — will in the near future diagnose diseases more accurately than doctors can, apply enormous data sets to transform retailing, and accomplish many tasks once considered uniquely human.” To come out ahead in the oncoming “race against the machines” depends on “recognizing the problem and taking steps such as investing more in the training and education of workers.” 

Evolving With Automation

Millennials are the largest generation working today. Employees in this demographic — digital natives — do have a much easier time adapting to new technology and digital workflows compared to older generations. Many millennial workers don’t want to find ways to conform to old, outdated business practices. When faced with a sluggish traditional job market, swathes of the millennial labour force have moved online to participate in the growing “gig” economy.  New platforms, like UpWork, TaskRabbit, and Textbroker, allow economic activities to be accomplished by on-demand freelancers rather than full-time employees. 

The future, they say, belongs to the fast. And according to futurist Dr. James Canton, “It is largely a matter of coevolution. With automation driving down value in some activities and increasing the value of others, we redesign our work processes so that people are focused on the areas where they can deliver the most value by partnering with machines to become more productive.”

Many workers in the “millennial” generation realize that in order to compete with computers, they must complete “natural intelligence” tasks with ever-greater speed and efficiency. This means handing out certain jobs to automation software, or even intelligent digital assistantsWhile there may be less paid work available for IT specialists, accountants, or even customer relations associates in the future, “social” skills and roles requiring collaboration with both humans and machines are in increasingly greater demand.   

However fast it will happen, there’s no doubt that a great shift is on the horizon. Working alongside “intelligent” bots and navigating the new digital economy will demand fearlessness in the face of digital automation. Remember we are only human, but in the future, that may be our greatest advantage.
