The purpose of The Creative Revolution! is to galvanize positive, worldwide non-violent action. Too often the citizens have resorted to violence and the world is saturated with it, night, and day. Surely, it is time to step away from crude, violent entertainment, and vicious methods for solving disputes and misunderstandings. Instead, we need to look for imaginative and creative solutions to solve mankind's dilemma, hence the birth of this project. Rather than use violence to settle disputes, we need to call on more powerful resources. Knowledge, prayer, and intuition are the source of power, and true freedom lies in personal responsibility and conscious awareness. We must pay attention to our surroundings, discontinue thoughtlessly exploiting, and brutalizing one another-and ravishing the Planet. The general public needs to be more deeply engaged to help save our precious Earth, and ourselves from further destruction and misery. Everyone should be intelligently involved by informing themselves and then interacting with community leaders, political authorities, political parties, church leaders, health professionals, and environmental groups. Most importantly, it is essential that we treat each other and all living species with respect, but this is not being done. Daily respect for one another has greatly diminished. Sadly, through greed, apathy and thoughtlessness we are destroying each other by needless wars, by spiteful gossip, envy, and callous indifference. Rapidly, and relentlessly humanity is on a suicidal course-depleting the natural resources of the Planet to the point where our very survival and that of other species is severely threatened. World poverty is a tremendous problem. Disgracefully, there is a huge waste of food, and resources. It is hard to comprehend mankind's inability or unwillingness to express compassion or to spend any time on the topic of our combined destructive behaviour. The purpose of The Creative Revolution is to reach out to those who are genuinely concerned about the state of the world's deteriorating environment, the massive loss of species, human poverty, declining privacy, the erosion of personal freedoms, declining morals, emerging viruses, health issues, and the rapid decline of civility. There are those who would genuinely like to participate in improving things but do not have the time, or the resources to research facts or to locate appropriate persons, institutions, civil society groups, action groups, and cutting edge health discoveries. Consequently, it is difficult to participate meaningfully without credible facts or know what to do, or where to find appropriate and accurate information, guidance and direction, or to whom one should address concerns. Hopefully, this project will remove many of those excuses. The Creative Revolution! is meant to be a stepping stone for motivation. There is nothing definitive about it. Instead, this project is merely a beginning, and one that will evolve and grow over time with enthusiastic participation. In conclusion, I wish to express my gratitude to those who wrote the many fascinating and informative books, and those who formed action groups and put their organizations and information on the Internet-thus making this project so much more comprehensive and accessible than would otherwise have been possible. Undoubtedly, there are some extraordinary individuals, educated, knowledgeable, experienced, and generous but many of these dedicated souls have been tucked away. For the most part, they have remained unknown and invisible to the bulk of humanity, and for this, we are infinitely the poorer. With this in mind, it is my pleasure to draw attention to some of these exceptional persons, and groups throughout this project so that you may learn things you had not heard about and become motivated and inspired-thus giving you the opportunity to advance and add to The Creative Revolution! in your own way.
