Reimagining social media

In a fresh, insightful episode of the Sacred Changemakers podcast, we sit down with visionary Kieron Bain to explore the future of ideas, information, and social media through his groundbreaking project, Panjea.

Key takeaways:

  • Pitfalls of current social platforms: Discover the three major issues plaguing today's social media—exchanging content for visibility, seeking validation, and manipulating user behavior to drive consumerism.
  • From consumption to creation: Learn how shifting focus from passive consumption to active creation can transform social spaces into environments that value and foster creative contributions.
  • Blockchain technology: Understand the complexities and pioneering solutions involved in building a social network based on blockchain technology.
  • Future vision: Envision a future where technology supports creativity, inclusivity, and mirrors the vast potential of human imagination.

Fun fact: The name "Panjea" reflects the platform’s goal to bring everyone back together into a unified, interconnected community just like the supercontinent it's named after!



Work and life in balance

When it comes to creating change in the way we live and work as humans, we really enjoy reading the insights from Paul Millerd's "Pathless" newsletter. In a recent issue, Paul offers valuable insights on redefining work and work-life balance, providing a refreshing perspective for those seeking a more meaningful and balanced life. Paul explores a model of "good work" for their upcoming book which resonated with us. Here's a quick breakdown:

  • Good work: Core activities that energize and fulfill you, reflecting your inner ambition.
  • Inner ambition: Your desire to contribute and create, giving life energy and meaning.
  • Complementary activities: Activities that support and sustain your good work, such as reading, deep conversations, and leisure.
  • Good enough work: Work that funds your good work and aligns somewhat with your core values, even if it isn't your ideal.
  • Bad work: Work that leaves you feeling cynical and detached, risky to do long-term due to hidden costs.

These insights encourage us to rethink our relationship with work and consider how we can create a more balanced and fulfilling life by prioritizing meaningful activities, building supportive communities, and embracing flexible work schedules.


Embracing synchronicities

In life's journey, we often encounter moments that feel profoundly meaningful, as if orchestrated by an unseen force. These moments, known as synchronicities, were explored by Carl Jung in Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle. Jung described synchronicity as events that are meaningfully related but not causally connected.

Recognizing these moments can lead to a life filled with purpose and peace. Synchronicities serve as guideposts, pointing us towards a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. By following synchronicities, we can find our true purpose and connect with a higher consciousness. Here are three tips to recognize more synchronicity in your life:

  • Stay open and present: Practice mindfulness through meditation and journaling to enhance your awareness.
  • Trust your intuition: Pay attention to your dreams, hunches, and recurring patterns in your life.
  • Observe meaningful coincidences: Notice when unrelated events seem to guide you towards your goals.

For instance, if you’re considering a career change and repeatedly encounter people or resources related to your dream profession, these could be synchronicities guiding you forward. By tuning into these moments, you can trust that the universe is supporting your journey.

Embracing synchronicities requires a shift from a purely rational mindset to one that honors intuition and the mysteries of life. By following these meaningful coincidences, you align more closely with your true self, finding purpose and peace in the process.

The benefits of following synchronicities include increased awareness, guidance, and inner peace. In the end, synchronicities remind us that life is a rich tapestry of interconnected experiences.
