If you were given an opportunity to create a new identity, who are you going to become? 

Who are we that is not someone who goes to a job?

Who are we that is not able to go to the gym, the swimming pool, the cafe?

Who are we that is not the taxi driver for children’s activities?

Who are we that is not the hustling entrepreneur building an empire?

Sitting by the beach, watching the seagulls, a lone surfer catching a wave, people in small numbers doing their morning walk, I think about our sudden rich opportunity to drop below the noise of an identity crafted through both our choice and the expectations of society over decades.

Who are we that has time. Plenty of time. Time that we never imagined possible?

It is extraordinarily scary to feel into the questions that have been peripheral to our busy-i-ness. To really breath into the spaciousness of no-thing-ness.

And, who are we that goes each day into the frey of services to those who are in dire straights, that faces the anxiety, the fear, illness, terror, death….

Our culture has had an Earthquake hit it, off the Richter scale. 

Now we get to consider, not just who we are, but also how we are as a community, a culture, as citizens, as stewards to our precious home planet.

Rather than deny, or run from, we might step fully into the void. Take a hand if you can, it’s easier that way.

And rather than long for a return to same same, we might ask how we can work together for a better future for our children’s children.

If you were given an opportunity to create a new identity, who are you going to become? 

Through all of this, let us not waste the moment.

About Christine McDougall


As the Founder and Chief Steward of Syntropic.world – Christine works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth than most through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science) and the working laws of Universe to enterprise design and human co-ordination. She has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today. She is committed to the creation of Syntropic enterprises as ubiquitous.
