This is a great one from Corbett. I love what he's saying about saving our energy for creating a great world, rather than wasting it by fighting a bad one, and begging for its scraps.
Such in important shift in PoV!

Please expand on why you think it's a shift. I really don't get how it's new. The only thing I can think of is that, maybe I might have beaten Corbett to this conclusion and assumed he was already there? I doubt I could beat or challenge Corbett in much of anything, especially as I'm not interested in competitions.
Months and months ago, (like 6 to 15, I don't recall when) I shared some (similar) images of trees growing from dead rotting stumps and rotted out trees leaving a vine lattice standing like a ghost of a tree - as analogous to a new nimble alternative system replacing the old, organically rather than competitively or violently.

I meant an important shift for the collective conditioned human mind.
I think it's key for the collective mind to shift PoV from disempowered subjects to the empowered collaborative Being that it already is.
We have been hornswoggled into believing that we must please some sort of perceived overlord, and the more we have appeased it, the more it has lorded-over. The more we then fight it, the more it gains legitimacy and saps our energy, etc.
To see ourselves as, say, the collective amniotic fluid from which unlimited creativity can and does grow, is a far cry from the sorry state the human mind has been conditioned to think in. (subjects and objects in a world, rather than one limitless field of energetic activity.)
I'm cutting lots of corners here but that's sort of what I meant. A deep bow to you for seeing through the many-layered veil of delusion, and glimpsing the true power that is our inborn nature.

I guess I read too much and latched onto the "newness" of this, our good old goal, to shuffle off our shackles, to put it crudely. To even attempt to say it any better I'd have to take up far more space and still fail at surpassing how brilliantly you summarily stated it.

Hah, we cross-posted and so I hadn't seen your longer commentary above.
Thank you for your kind words :)
What is new, or fresh, is new sometimes only in the framework of when it strikes minds that have heretofore been blinded and intoxicated by indoctrination.
The actual truth of Reality has been being transmitting itself all along, but only a very few have been listening.
The more we "normalize" the knowledge of our inherent power and basic goodness, the less "new" (and that often translates to "scary, for some")
and the more natural it will become.

Indeed, more profound pontificating. Formosa, a fountain of wisdom.
I'm very curious to see what he comes up with next to further this grand overview of an alternative hive-rejection of the powers and systems that be. I hope it's not just a one-off or rarity.
