"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

-Harriet Tubman, abolitionist and humanitarian, an important member of the "Underground Railroad" (1820 -- 1913)

We are entering a new year and continuing along the path of a Consciousness Revolution, an event that has been anticipated for centuries by indigenous cultures. This is an ideal time for us to ask ourselves what it means to be human on this tiny space station, Earth, at this moment in history, to recognize that we must take the individual and collective actions necessary to turn crises into opportunities, to commit to daily actions that will transform that recognition into reality, and finally, to realize that doing all of this isn't just necessary; it's fun.

Achieving all of our goals will be possible as we pursue the goal of revolutionizing consciousness -- as we think about the world and ourselves in a new and enlightened way. In order to pursue our mission to create a just, peaceful, and sustainable world, we recognize the importance of transforming ourselves from the inside out, starting with our hearts and minds.

Every crisis presents us with an opportunity to make a difference. Taking initiative during times of natural disaster and civil unrest leads to the changes that the world needs to see now. Stepping into the gaps caused by crises with courage and responsibility allows us to create a bright future for our children and grandchildren. We have the power to make sweeping lifestyle changes at home and to empower our leaders to do the same.

The corporatocracy wants us to consume more and more as their profits and power grow; yet, we are called upon to resist with purposeful action. It is time to educate those around us so that the movement to reduce consumption and to empower responsible businesses can become stronger. Not only is rampant consumption feeding into the corporatocracy, but it is also threatening the future of our children in every way from their food sources to their health.Through our purchasing decisions, we send powerful messages to the corporations. It is time now for those messages to be about creating an economy that cleans up pollution, helps starving people feed themselves, and develops new energy, transportation, communications, banking, education, and marketing systems -- instead of about more militarization and pillaging of the earth.

After we commit to daily actions we see our goals become achievements and our dreams become reality. As I suggested in a recent blog, when you identify a cause that inspires you and email at least 10 people every day urging them to act around that cause and also asking them to email 10 of their friends, you manifest magical powers.

Setting clear goals helps us to be intentional about changing poor habits into powerful ones. Writing those goals down and sharing them with friends and family creates momentum and accountability. We can transform ourselves with each dream that starts in the heart and becomes reality.

It takes just one voice to start a movement. One voice is joined by hundreds and then thousands more voices to create an insurmountable energy for change. All over the world, we can and will continue uniting and demanding for the right of the people to be served. Strong grassroots movements will be unstoppable with enough of us behind them.

Let 2014 be the year that you dedicate yourself like never before to your transformative journey and your practice of living in a new consciousness. No matter what goals you set for yourself in the new year, one of the most important actions you can take is to educate those around you about these issues and how to make an impact regarding them.

Let's dance together, soar together, and share our passions with others.
