Greetings Friends Everywhere!
Our world is composed of many different races, nations, political affiliations, religious affiliations, and philosophical perspectives; but, despite our differences, we all share the transcendent desire to be healthy & happy and live in a healthy & happy world.
My name is Soren Sorensen and I am the creator of the Center for a Better World, which was born from my desire to help create a better world.
I believe that our world and its inhabitants (not just humans) are extremely
precious and should be protected and nurtured with every thought,
word, and action. I also believe that as we become evermore conscious
of how our thoughts, words, and actions influence and alter each
other and the ever-expanding world around us, we naturally become ever-more
individually and collectively responsible for the well-being of our
ever-expanding world. Please note that our "world" is quickly expanding beyond the Earth!
With these beliefs in mind, I have been continuously considering this important set of questions for more than 30 years:
1) "What is the greatest threat to the long term health and happiness of our world?"
2) "What offers the greatest benefit to the long term health and happiness of our world?"
Over the years, I have come up with many closely related answers; but, ultimately, I believe that:
1) The greatest threat is GREED + TECHNOLOGY. Ultimately, greed can cause a person to attempt to control everything and everyone around them by any means that may seem necessary - no matter how unthinkable to a healthy mind!
Unfortunately, the vast majority of our human family is already effectively divided, disabled, demoralized, distracted, and controlled by extreme dishonesty, deception, and physical/mental/emotional manipulation.
(For more information, please read: "Know Thy Enemy".)
2) The greatest benefit is offered by EXISTENTIAL ENLIGHTENMENT*. Ultimately, existential enlightenment causes one to realize one's own true nature and true relationship to all else that exists.
Such realization not only eliminates greed and (gradually) frees one from others' attempts to control them; it also inspires them to help others and to help create a better world.
(For more information, please read: "Know Thy Self".)
*IMPORTANT NOTE: There are many different paths that lead to existential enlightenment. Rather than choosing one of them (or creating yet another path), the Center focuses on validating and illuminating existing paths by promoting "Global Enlightenment" (one of our Eight Empowering Intentions).
I believe that global enlightenment is, indeed, critical to the well-being of our world; but I feel strongly that each individual person should choose and follow the path that they feel is best for their current perspective and circumstances.
I also believe that we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of how great life on planet Earth can be. All we need to do is free ourselves and get serious about the business of creating an ever-better world. Can you imagine what might be possible?
How great can our world be?
LET'S FIND OUT!
The Center for a Better World exists to
liberate, unite, and empower our human family
to help create an ever-better world.
With all of these things in mind, I have designed the following things:
Ultimately, I see the “Center” as an organization that serves all who intend to actively help
create an ever-better world (aka the “Alliance”). Although I have some partially developed ideas, I don’t claim to know how the Center can best serve the Alliance. In fact, I don’t think any one person can know such things. That being said, I believe that, together, we can create ever-better answers to this and any other question that arises. And we would be well served to create ever-better questions too!
Make no mistake, the current state of the Center is inherently based upon my limited questions, answers, time and other resources. Naturally, it can become infinitely more by integrating others’ questions, answers, time and other resources. Therefore, please experience this web site as an extremely rough outline of some powerful possibilities. Also note that I have been designing a fantastic next-generation (far beyond FaceBook, etc.) social community and networking platform that is both intentional and fun. If built, it would naturally replace this web site altogether.
To be clear, I am looking for bright minds and pure hearts. I am looking for wisdom, intelligence, and creativity. I am looking for talent, skills, funding, and other practical resources. I am looking for people that genuinely want to help create an ever-better world, even though they may or may not know exactly how they can help. If you feel inspired by what the Center and Alliance could become, I am looking for you!
Would you like to help create a better world?
P.S. Your comments, suggestions, and questions are always welcome.
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT MY PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE?
I have published three books that, together, should give you a fundamental understanding of how I see things. That being said, this organization is not about how I see things; it is about how to best create an ever-better world.
Naturally, I bring my unique life experience and personal perspective to this organization, and others bring theirs. Together, as an organization, our collective perspective becomes ever-more powerful as ever-more inspired and pure-hearted people join us.
The most important thing is that we, as an organization, stay aligned with our mission: "To help create a better world by liberating, uniting, and empowering our human family to help create an ever-better world as ethically, effectively, efficiently, and enjoyably as possible."
I welcome your inspired and pure-hearted contribution.
