What is Mission? - Mission 4
|What is Mission?|
Mindful of the central importance of the imaginal process, MISSION has established an Institute for Self Transformation. This Institute will nurture a more conscious understanding and nurturing of the inner change process. The Institute has pioneered in the use of the Leminiscate Approach to self and societal transformation and will use this as its central methodology in nourishing the emergence and/or further development of imaginals.
For a further elaboration of imaginal cells and an appreciation of the importance of imaginals or imaginal individuals for creating a better world, kindly click this article: “The Butterfly Effect and Societal Transformation”.
The challenges of the nation are many, systemic, and multi-dimensional: climate change, deforestation, trade deficits, narrow economic base, transactional and trapo politics, injustice, conflict, criminality, budget deficits, taxation without service, corruption, moral decay, poor quality education, shallow media, poverty, homelessness, drugs, egotism, meaninglessness, and materialism. (For a more comprehensive treatment, read “Challenges Facing Philippine Society, Our Role in Creating These Challenges and the Necessity for Change”.)It is clear that the challenges facing the country are not just political. Thus, a narrow focus on a purely political, state-centered approach would miss the point.
We need to simultaneously address human/spiritual, ecological, and societal questions. We need to advance integral sustainable development (ISD) and its seven dimensions of ennoblement: ecological, economic, political, cultural, societal, human and spiritual. We need a society, human, and nature-centered approach to uplifting our nation and contributing to the betterment of the world.
