Yes. You read that right.
The future of the sustainable enterprise is NOT in any Silicon Valley that gobbles up rare-earth materials in the technological frenzy to escape from Earth.
It is happening quietly, as you read this, in a network of “Carbon Valleys”, far from cities, across an ecologically conscious world.
These ‘Nuclei’ are geographic spaces, co-owned by passionate individuals, who are unafraid to challenge centuries of status-quo. This is where systems for a new way of living, learning and earning are getting propagated. Modeling a new-kind of nature-based, sustainable micro-enterprise, making it the probable industry of the future.
The Best part? This is nurtured as much by a community of stakeholder-consumers as it is by a new community of interdependent Eco-entrepreneurs. No indifferent middle-men. Just well-wisher “Hiteshis”, on either side of the conscious transaction, who voluntarily apply a new definition for value, on resources other than money, like water, earth, air, energy and the means to grow food and other value-add materials and products.
Who are these people?
Well, they’re just like you and me, everyday warriors who’ve just decided to step away from the cobbled path.
They come from a diverse background – from social workers to IIT engineers; doctors to architects; farmers to development professionals; corporate executives to senior bureaucrats; management experts to experts in appropriate technologies.
These are folks who can naturally commit to a vision for self and community, Self discipline, Strong will, Care for others and Entrepreneurial thinking.
“What we consume, we repay with interest, treating Mother Nature as the all-nurturing owner” – they proclaim with pride and a deep sense of mission.
Just ponder this for a moment:
Nope, this is not any imaginary “Shangri-la”. You just have to get out and look for them, there quite a few already! Sounds strange and almost unbelievable, doesn’t it? It was for me to at first, but not anymore, now that I’ve witnessed this revolution first-hand.
An evolved soul who happens to be a much sought after astrologist-numerologist just sent me an encouraging New Year’s Wish suggesting 2018 adds up to 11, a powerful number, which promises to stir up everyone from their slumber to realize lofty dreams, motivating them towards spirituality and Mother Nature.
Are you ready to be woken?
