Which Pieces of Solving Your "Universal StewardHeirShip
Benjamin Franklin said: "The destiny of America is not power, it is light." We believe the ultimate destiny of the USA is enlightenment or "enlightening the world" as inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. We have a vision of how "The United State of Americans" can help fulfill our destiny and provide enhanced opportunities for "betterment for 100% of humanity". That includes establishing a network of non-profit CAN DO! Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers that will provide expanded access to "Successful Living Skills for the 21st Century" including the relatively new field of Infopreneurship.
These forthcoming books from the new cause oriented Company, Universal StewardHeirShip, Inc. introduce StewardHeirShip and present a vision and Strategic Implementation Matrix™ for helping individuals, organizations and communities realize and actualize more of their potential and capacity for addressing the increasing social, economic and environmental challenges we face together. The opportunities inherent in those challenges and the increased focus on personal development, spiritual enlightenment and sustainable living were predicted in an article, Future Market Place: Consumer Heaven, from the 1997 issue of The Futurist.
Our Ultimate Vision is a world of more fully actualized individuals living in a higher and more enlightened consciousness of StewardHeirShip™ as our shared destiny. That encompasses Bucky Fuller’s vision of “betterment for 100% of humankind”, Arthur Morgan's works including The Great Community, Donald Curtis’ vision in his book, Helping Heaven Happen and an adaptation of Abraham Maslow's work to our vision of fostering the cocreation of "fully actualizing communities". Our vision also incorporates the principles and practices of Community Economic Development that include Self-Help, Empowerment and Capacity Building.
Our Mission is to: facilitate spiritual, personal, community and global empowerment and enlightenment; foster personal, social and global transformation; and help millions of people A.R.K. (Awaken to Spirit, Realize more of their potential and Know how to discover and cocreate their ultimate destiny (whatever that means to each one) by publishing, producing and distributing programs, products and services that accomplish those desired outcomes.
Our Co-creative Organizational Strategy. The cofounders believe that what we are cocreating together is far beyond any company or non-profit organization. It is beyond a university, religion, philosophy, or any particular discipline or field of study. Our programs address mind, body and spirit, etc. and they encompass most if not all of the major developmental disciplines such as personal, professional, organizational, community and economic development and spiritual enlightenment.
* S.P.I.R.I.T. When we use the words spirit and spiritual, we're not talking about religion. We define those words as Stewardship; Purpose; Integrity; Responsibility; Inspiration and True identity (remembering we are spiritual beings having a spiritual experience temporarily in a human form). We deeply appreciate the work of Judi Neal, Director of the Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace and Patricia Aburdene’s great work in Mega Trends 2010, Seven Trends That Will Change the Way We Live, Work and Invest. She reported in her book that 3 of the 7 trends were spiritual and the most significant trend was spiritual, especially in the world of business.
