The more aware I become of how unprepared our government, our institutions and businesses and many of us in the general public are to address the issues associated with the graying of our population; the more certain I am about the need for a new national dialogue designed to identify the real challenges and uncover new and effective solutions for individuals and members of organizations and communities in the time of Demographic Revolution.    It is a time that some experts say will see as much as 50% of our population and the population in most industrial countries in the world over 50 years of age for the first time in history.  Many of these same experts say that in such a world the majority of us ‘who weren’t born yesterday’ will have to be more responsible for our own well-being and for the quality of our own lives?

I’ve been reflecting on this a lot lately and yesterday, as I was taking a long walk along one of the quiet, country roads that winds its way through the hills around my home in of Santa Fe, I found myself thinking about a series of questions I believe are important for all of us to answer They are not easy questions, of course, but then what questions worth their salt ever are?

Here are just a few 

What if… you have a destiny, a specific reason and purpose for being alive and you are not fulfilling it?

What if…your life is a precious gift, and each moment is a choice point, an opportunity to learn something or avoid it, to wake up to new levels of meaning and purpose, loving and consciousness or to keep on doing the habitual and the less than effective?  

What if…you have it in your power to live your life as fully, as joyfully, powerfully and grace-filled as you have ever dreamed possible? And what if this is the only way you will ever know genuine inner peace, and a sense of satisfaction, alignment and fulfillment?

What if…life isn’t about how much you make, what you own, or what other people think of you, but about how you show up inside yourself and in the world through your thoughts words and actions every day?

See what I mean about not easy questions?  Well if you’re interested in exploring some of your answers and finding people like you who are no longer interested in living on the sidelines, they you’ll enjoy watching the Ageless Living Series on your local PBS station and you’ll also enjoy visiting and spending time with some of the Wisdom Keepers you’ll find there.
