Creating a New Earth

There is a growing human spirit that is fighting against the violence of humanity towards itself, the planet and animals we share consciousness with. As Albert Schweitzer and Mahatma Gandhi have taught; Until we extend a circle of compassion and nonviolence into our story this planet will never find peace.

Project Beyond Impossible is working to usher in the higher consciousness of peace and nonviolence. We are working to bridge today’s interregnum to a higher consciousness


While in prison in 1930, Italian theorist Antonio Gramsci wrote how the public had lost faith in their leaders, but could not visualize how to enlighten, or displace them. “The crisis,” he wrote in perhaps his most famous quote, “Today’s issues consist precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum, a great variety of morbid symptoms appear

In Gramsci’s period between World War One and World War Two many felt, just as today, the controlling class was not ‘leading’ but ‘dominating. Largely the masses no longer bought into what they were being told, but they did not see nor know how to create a bridge to cross over to a better world. They could not vision beyond their level of consciousness. And therefore they could not transition Beyond the Impossible.

We believe that human consciousness is ready to cross over today’s interregnum. While it may seem impossible as we look at events today across the World in Ukrania and China, a higher way of thinking is just an enlightened thought away. Change your thoughts, change your world.

Join with us in building a bridge to this new world. A world that no longer destroys its people, animals, air, forests, farmlands, rivers and oceans 

Please accept this NY Times audiobook, A NEW EARTH. narrated by the author Eckhart Tolle. Learn how you can transition to this new consciousness.

Nonviolence Manifesto for Peace

1-Democracy, peace, and nonviolence can no longer be a spectator sport. Everyone, every day must participate in Democracy to bring an end to violence, and create a World of Peace  It must start in our hearts and manifest into our actions. We must no longer be violent to those who think differently than us, look different from us. While at first, we may not be consistently strong to act nonviolently in thought, word, and deed we can keep nonviolence as our goal and make progress towards it daily.

2 -Teach nonviolence in every University, Public, and Private school in America.

3 -Incorporate nonviolence into our Constitution. Have the knowledge and practice of nonviolence written into our National State and Local Legislation.

4 -Remove violence from the way we nourish ourselves. Understanding that the food we consume, how it was treated in life, and in death becomes who we are. And, what we feed our bodies also feeds our souls. End the violent killing of all animals in factory farming and factory agriculture. We must not be timid but act fearlessly and decisively to revitalize our planet and endangered animal species and our companion animals.

5 -Live in the real, not the virtual world. Practice daily mindfulness, yoga, or prayer on nonviolence and peace. Do so and you will live in Awe and Wonder each moment. As said by Gandhi, Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. Live with a mind of nonviolence, peace, and happiness in what you think, what you say. Learn and teach INTENTIONAL LIVING. Live an intentional and creative life of love and nonviolence towards humanity,  animals, and the Planet. Be happy intentionally. Remember that happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Salto mortale;  Be fearless, take risks. Freedom is not free. Ignore fear and leap into the void. You will never be 100% ready. Take the risk and do it anyway. When all humanity stands up for nonviolence, we shall have Peace on earth. Peace is born in each person’s heart. It is your birthright.

6 -Become intelligent and brave leaders, not followers. Dont leave democracy and your life and freedom to chance, or politicians or business leader. Start with yourself, only then can you lead others. You’ve been given a mile of freedom. Don’t take only an inch. Be curious, read daily, develop a higher consciousness and higher thinking. Democracy can no longer be a spectator sport. Everyone, every day must participate fully in Democracy to bring an end to violence, tyranny and build a world of peace. We must lead with our hearts and our heads. Then others of a like mind will follow you.  You must live your life fully with the highest values, beliefs and respect for all living things.

7 -There is a season for all things under heaven. A time for war and a time for peace. This is the time for courage and for peace. We have followed the path and the breadcrumbs for many years, and now it is the time to reap the harvest of peace and prosperity. Together we can cross over to a kinder, more conscious, nonviolent, and vibrant world of green forests, clear waters, and blue skies. A world where all sentient beings live together as one.
8 -Decide how you want to live in this world. There are two ways to live. You must choose one. Live Hopeful or live Fearful. I chose Hopeful. I see people who are manifesting a bridge to a new world. People who are bridging today’s interregnum. Working each day to build a world of peace, nonviolence and peace for all humanity, animals, and our planet.

We produced two TEDx events in 2020 & 2021

The theme of each TEDx Dupree Park Event in 2020 & 2021 was Seeding Greatness. Based on one of our guiding life principles summed up in this ancient Greek quote. “Great societies grow, and blossom when their people plant trees, they know they will never sit under.”

Happy picture of our amazing TED speakers who came from across the globe to speak on our TEDx Dupree Park stage in December 2021.

We and our team believe that, across the globe, community elders, leaders, and people must come together and step forward to fiercely and eloquently speak their hope and passion for Peace & the future of mankind. We are awakening and remembering our story of oneness with all; humanity, animals, nature, and this communal blue dot we all call home. Soon we will grow stronger, blossom, and become closer together as a community, humanity, and world”.
