On The Periphery

"Our challenge is to open the mind so it can catch up with reality." In the course of listening closely to Otto Scharmer's Awakin call while transcribing it, I heard this startling observation from him. That sums up exactly the dilemmas we occasionally find ourselves in, personally and collectively. Why do we or others around us sometimes seem to fall behind in the perception of reality? Perhaps because we're privileged, or because we become deeply embedded in the social system. As Dr. Scharmer himself said during his call, "...the future never shows up in the center first. The future shows up at the periphery first." Hearing it put so succinctly really brought it home.
