Sensemaking a SpiritDAO community-created weekly column about applying our philosophy and practice to everyday life.
This weeks contributors: Ron Rivers
In the age of crisis, the pursuit of self-actualization and alignment with the single truth and relational universe is paramount. As individuals, we must recognize our inherent power to shape our lives and contribute to the collective well-being of humanity. One of the most effective ways to achieve this alignment is through self-organization, time management, and effective planning. These practices not only empower us to navigate the complexities of modern life but also enable us to align the observable infinities (the universal itself and human imagination) and most greatly express our individual divinity in the moment.
Self-organization is structuring our lives to promote personal growth, productivity, and well-being. By organizing our thoughts, emotions, and actions, we can better understand our place in the relational universe and make choices that align with the single truth. This involves setting clear goals, prioritizing tasks, and developing routines supporting our individual actualization journey. When organized, we can more effectively direct our focus and energy toward activities that bring us closer to our envisioned future.
Time management is another aspect of individual alignment with the single truth and relational universe. The change we create is incremental by the nature of being human. We only have so many specific moments in a day to leverage. The same cannot be said about our creations or the directions we choose when applying focus and energy. By managing our time effectively, we can allocate our resources towards activities that contribute to our personal growth and the betterment of humanity. This involves setting priorities, breaking tasks into manageable steps, and developing strategies to minimize distractions and maximize productivity.
In Self-Actualization in the Age of Crisis, we review a single map explaining a simple process of maximizing your impact within specific moments (below). However, there are several schemes and technologies you can use. There is no wrong way of organizing your efforts, only your way. Starting with our small ritual of visualization, you imagine an ideal future that you seek to bring into the present. From there, you identify a handful of essential things that would need to happen to realize this vision, breaking it down further until you can catalog actionable tasks. This empowers you to express your core values of flexibility, awareness, enthusiasm, and courage. At any point in time, you can return to your planning efforts to explore what to focus on next, saving you time and frustration. It also supports flexibility in what you work on and how you work towards it. So long as you are focusing on your productive efforts, you are bringing your vision closer to life.
Effective planning is setting realistic objectives, identifying potential obstacles, and devising strategies to overcome them. If this concept frightens or confuses you, don’t stress. One of the most common but often overlooked aspects of becoming better at managing your moments is research and learning. Creation requires us to leverage imagination, which roots itself in curiosity. In a relational universe governed by the single truth, there is no “right” or “wrong” path, only those that bring us closer or farther from our vision. Through effective planning, we can ensure that our actions are purposeful and directed toward the realization of our full potential. Most importantly, our core value of awareness empowers us to redirect whenever necessary.
Combining self-organization, time management, and effective planning supports individual alignment with the single truth and relational universe in several ways. Firstly, these practices enable us to develop a deeper understanding of our unique time experiences and the role we play in guiding the direction of our time experience. By cultivating this awareness, we can make more informed choices that align with the single truth and contribute to the collective well-being of humanity.
Consider also the benefits of how self-organization, time management, and effective planning foster a sense of personal accountability, routine, discipline, mastery—active soulcraft. As we become more aware of our actions and their consequences, we are more likely to make choices that align with the values we choose to embody. This sense of responsibility is essential for the collective transformation required to overcome the challenges of the age of crisis.
💀 Some minor setbacks that were discussed during our Town Hall: Initially we we're planning to leverage DAOLens as our platform, but the team has been radio silent for time some time. We've been working with them around a list of bugs, but are now considering alternative routes to host community operations and knowledge.
🔨 Development of our onboarding process and content continues to progress.
