I (Tim) went to a weekend ‘Change Agent’ workshop back in 1999 in Auckland that Robert presented and learnt much - hence I am still enthused as of today.
However Robert is now taking the deeper context of change to another more focused ‘local to global level.’ They are called ‘The 3 Harmonies.’
This below is an introduction to Change Agents, that leads into the Three Harmonies.
A change agent is someone who can bring a vision into a manifestation here in our physical life. Usually it is someone in a catalytic role. Often, they
bring people together and help them focus on something as a shared goal and enable something new to be born.
It takes a certain amount of courage, because a change agent is doing things before everybody else says – ‘oh yes that’s a brilliant idea.’ Change agents
need to recognise the value of some new approach and have the perseverance to shepherd it through to actual manifestation.
Note that not all changes agents are promoting change that you would approve of …
However the change that Robert Gilman promotes is with people who have a caring about what is happening on the planet, a caring for the earth and for its
people and its species and who would like to be more effective in being able to manifest that caring. Robert says that they have this inner intuition
that they are here in this time in history to make a difference. Yet they often find it challenging. Robert’s calling at present is to work with people
who already in their hearts are oriented to making a difference and assist them to be more effective and joyous as change agents
Today the collective unconsciousness is stirring as it recognises that humanity is in a tight situation regarding its collective planetary future.
Robert suspects that there is also within that ‘collective unconsciousness’ the realisation of opportunity for a truly brighter future. (Robert’s use of
‘bright future’ is totally different from the NZ National party’s use.)
He feels that the long-term trends show we are closing in-on, within a generation or two, ending warfare as an institution.
This is only one of the changes that his decades of working in this field lead him to believe are in ‘the works’ .
Humanity has many challenges – the warming climate, species extinction, various social problems, etc. – that we have we have yet to solve. Robert has spent
over 40 years studying and writing about these challenges and now feels that we already have practical, tested solutions to essentially all of them.
The obstacles to implementing these solutions all come back to fear, fear that we have inherited from 5000 years of cultures based on maintaining everyone
in a traumatized state.
For thousands of years the winning strategy for worldly success has been to Enforce the Three Dominations:
- The domination within. Doing everything with will.
- The domination over others.
- The domination over Nature.
During all that time, visionaries and idealists have pursued a different strategy, what Robert calls Embody the Three Harmonies:
- The harmony within.
- The harmony with others.
- The harmony with nature.
As appealing as many have found this approach, it’s not been a strategy for outward success.
The long-term trends of cultural evolution suggest that we are currently in a ‘tipping zone’ where increasingly those who succeed in practical terms will
be good collaborators who embody the three harmonies. Those who pursue domination will find themselves more and more isolated and unsuccessful.
With the goal of speeding up this ‘birth’ of the Planetary Era, Robert has developed an ‘adventure tour to the future’. Called Bright Future Now, it helps people deepen their embodiment of the Three Harmonies so that they can personally
step into that bright future now and be more effective and joyous change agents in service to the Earth and its life. Bright Future Now is a 6-week
online, highly-interactive process that integrates into the lives of busy people all over the world.
