What is a futurist?
And, what does it mean for you to be sovereign and free?
Dr. Vandana Shiva and I dive deep and unpack these questions on this episode of Catalyst Talks here.
Dr. Vandana Shiva has been recognized as one of the most powerful voices of truth in the world.
In a time when futurists tell a story based on financial markets, technology trends and a world they wish to see, we actually do have a choice whether we acquiesce to the vision or not.
A futurist's vision is predicated on their world view.
We can simply choose a different timeline, possibility and notion of reality that fits the world we choose to see instead. This is the difference between destiny and fate.
Its all based on worldviews.
Fate plays out when we acquiesce to probabilities based on trends- be it in our personal lives or in the collective. Destiny finds her way when we choose possibility over probability. Destiny requires courage, leadership and visionary thinking. Destiny is claimed through sovereign thinking.
Sovereignty is a function of knowledge, wisdom, discernment and choice.
When we take in the information we hear- as is, like this is the way it's going to be because the market says so, or trends in technology say so-we have a choice to decide if that's true. One might be convinced we don't, but we really do.
We have a sovereign choice to determine our destiny.
The reports we read and stories we hear about the future of AI and technology are just a critical mass of people agreeing on the way they want the world to go, with a bunch more people acquiescing.
Sovereignty is your freedom of choice to see the world a different way.As a sovereign futurist, the future I see is quite different than the one I hear predicted left and right.
In fact, it's quite similar to the vision of powerhouse, Dr. Vandana Shiva.
She is a legend of truth, a visionary for a healthy world in harmony with each other and nature and in this episode on Catalyst Talks we traverse some pretty mind opening territory.
As a transformational leadership coach (attorney) and business alchemist to change agents, I'm on a mission to help leaders speak their truth, live their purpose and create a deeper positive impact for themselves and the world.
That's why I had to invite my shero of 25 years, a true catalyst, on the show... to model what it is to be an unstoppable for for good in this world.
She's written law in India, she's written international laws on Bio Safety and GMO's. She's taken on Monsanto and issues of biopiracy, intellectual property, environmental justice, regenerative agriculture, seed sovereignty and farmer's rights.
Listen to this powerhouse challenge what we think is truth on a whole other level here.
