So ... how do we do this? How do we go from our habitual "every cell for itself" consciousness that has caused our current "mining disaster" to acting on the evolutionary truth that we are in reality "all cells in the body of humanity?" How do we shift from survival of the fittest to thrival of the fittingest?

First we must move from the fear-based Homeland Security to the love-based Heartland Security and realize our one true security is in the land of the heart. While the beliefs in our head fool us all the time, the love in our heart is foolproof. When we face up to love, we can face down the fear.

What this means in practical reality is that we must step across the "red-blue" political divide that has kept us separate and show our true colors as one purple people. Yes, we have all been wounded by polarizing politics, so let's give ourselves a purple heart and take the next courageous step to cohere around our shared "heart core" values and become we, the purple.

I have a dream that the rednecks shall lie down with the blue necks and we tune out the polarizing mainstream media, which is sadly a brainwashing machine stuck on spin. More than ever, we need forums not againstums, dialogue instead of debate. When the body politic stops mass-debating and chooses to have healthy, pleasurable intercourse, we will finally create a healthy brainchild together.

This February, we celebrate Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial and our friend Richard Lederer (the anagram master known as Riddler Reacher), tells us that when we scramble the letters in "Barack Hussein Obama," we get "Abraham is back: One U.S."

You don't have to be a Barack-backer to see that instead of relying on leaders from above, the next evolutionary step is for us to become the leaders we have been waiting for. I am Lincoln. You are Lincoln. We are Lincoln. And by linkin' together, we free ourselves from slavery to the divisive beliefs in our minds and form a more perfect union in the land of the heart.

Sure, these ideas may seem far-fetched, but we are nearer to fetching them than ever before. Remember, we are now living in a world gone sane. Change is ahead, change is afoot and everything is changing from head to foot. Like it or not, we are destined to have heaven on earth. Might as well get used to it.
