Craig Hamilton

In this enlightening Tipping interview, evolutionary teacher Craig Hamilton tells us that the biggest shift happening on the planet right now (which underlies all the other shifts we are experiencing) is that the universe is becoming “self reflective”.

Craig explains that this process of the universe becoming aware of itself is actually happening through us, through human beings…and it is this burgeoning reality that may be the fundamental nature of the ‘tipping point’ being framed out on this site!

What I love about Craig’s worldview, and the ‘evolutionary’ perspective in general, is that he is not scared to take the grandest possible stance on what the tipping point phenomena actually is.

Craig exemplifies this in our talk when he provides a wonderful visual of the present moment being time smack dab in the middle of 40,000 years of the past and 40,000 years of the future.

When you actually sense into what life was like 40,000 years ago for human beings, and you try to sense into what 40,000 years in the future might hold, it alters your perception of the present moment quite drastically.  When listening, try and feel into the visualization…you will see what I mean :)

The most critical piece to understand, according to Craig, is that what makes this moment in time so unique is that we have the ability to access the impulse driving the evolutionary process.  To Craig, accessing and connecting to this ‘evolutionary impulse’ is the key for not only our individual happiness but also potentially the transcendence of human beings!

The greatest thing about Craig is that as a teacher and speaker, he transmits pretty complicated stuff in a simple and easy to understand manner.  If you are interested in learning more about is work, please click here, and also share this talk with your friends who might be interested in learning more about evolution!

Love, Todd

Neale Donald Walsch and The Great Disruption!

January 18th, 2012

Listen to Neale Donald Walsch:

Neale Donald Walsch

Many of you know Neale Donald Walsch as a spiritual luminary/author who has spent most of his literary career ‘conversing with God’. His latest book is a little different others in his ultra popular series, and is aptly titled The Storm Before The Calm. In this book Neale takes a sobering and realistic view of the current human situation and names the global crisis so many of us feel as the ‘great disruption’.

Needless to say, it is an honor to have interviewed Neale…anyone that has sold more than 8 Million books has had a real impact on the collective consciousness and it was a thrill to garner his wisdom on the current challenges we face.

Interestingly, the first part of our dialogue was very direct. He spoke clearly about how world governments are going to try and control the Internet, create laws around the spread of free ideas, and even ‘turn off’ the world wide web if it becomes too problematic. NDW was speaking very Thrive-like!

I found his words particularly enlightening given the current SOPA and NDAA laws the US government are desperately trying to enact.

Neale then went on to frame out the spiritual dilemma we face by posing a powerful question: how is it that a species of 6.9 billion evolved individuals (or so we claim) have failed to manifest a world where peace, love, unity, security, prosperity are the norm…when a seemingly VAST majority of people want these things?? Its a powerful question of you think about it, and made me ponder, ‘yea, what is it that’s holding us back’?

I’m not going to give his answers away, because the way he expressed himself in answering his own question was a real gift (and I highly encourage you to listen to the interview) but essentially he told me that we have been wanting to wrong things…and that human beings have been collectively asking the WRONG question.

When I asked him what the right question was, I thought I might get some vague, spiritual answer….but I did not. He was very direct.

Anyway, ENJOY Neale Donald Walsh on Worldwide Tipping Point…and DEF read his latest book: The Storm Before The Calm

David ‘Avocado Wolfe’: Chinese Herbs, Medicinal Mushrooms, Goji Berries and Tipping Our Well-Being

January 17th, 2012

Listen To David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe:

Play

David Wolfe

I’ll be honest, David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe has been sort of a hero of mine for the past 10 years since I first discovered his work.  It’s not just the actual content he creates but the manner in which he lives his life.  You see, David is an explorer, someone who is out in the world experimenting with various forms of health, well-being, and consciousness that helps us attain a greater lens of understanding about how the rest of the world holds this unique time to be living!

And his message is critical to generating a tipping point as human beings have gotten so off track in the areas of health and well being….how we grow and consume food and how we heal our bodies when we are sick.  Listening to David’s message is crucial right now, and he brings up a quote by Socrates which I believe sums up our dialogue quite well:  “All wisdom is remembering”.

David and I talk for quite a while about Chinese medicine and how the Chinese are by FAR the most advanced in the world when it comes to holistic and herbal medicine.  David talks to us about something the Chinese are doing called ‘Fingerprint Identical Transfer’ technology, a process by which we open up and extract unbelievable heaps of healing energy from plants and herbs that are not even part of the conversation in the western world.

David speaks to us about various forms of healing, and our collective need to get back to the source wisdom that is right in front of our faces.  He touts the benefits of medicinal mushrooms, drinking spring water, broccoli, marine phytoplankton, super foods (like chocolate), and more.  He has a real passion for the benefits of Chinese Goji berries and I ask him about this particular berry and why its so important…and he explains in detail why Goji is the center of the Chinese wheel of health and well being.

Guys, if we are going to generate a true Worldwide Tipping Point than we need to start remembering how to treat our bodies and health…and begin accessing the wisdom all around us. I hope you enjoy this interview because I did :)

This interview had a LOT of information, as David has a lot to share.  He says the best site to garner all his info is The Best Day Ever and I highly recommend you checking out the site.  Almost all of his talks, recipes and content is shared on this site…..

Biomimicry and Architecture for the Future: Janine Benyus

January 17th, 2012

Listen To Janine Benyus:

Janine Benyus

I am ecstatic to have Janine Benyus in the tipping series not only because its relevant to have a few scientists in these dialogues, but also because she is one of the leading voices in the emerging field of Biomimicry, which can be explained quite nicely as: Innovation inspired by nature.

In our interview Janine calls human beings ‘toddler’s with matches’, and I just love this phrase!  She gives us necessary perspective that in biological terms we are a very young species, one which has evolved to the point where it will either destroy itself or transform into it’s next stage of development.

On the hopeful front, I find the type of science the Biomimicry represents as a potential harbinger regarding where we are on the evolutionary path.  I mean, how COOL is it that science has evolved to the point of recognizing that certain things in nature work while certain things do not, and that we can consciously choose to study the things that are working, learn from them, mimic them, and give ourselves the best chance of continuing on.

Biomimicry looks to the natural world for successful organisms, things that have been here for millions of years, and searches for helpful clues as to their longevity.  We can then put these design features into use in real-world architecture and creation.  Buildings based on the principles of a tree, water systems flowing like the contours of a leaf….incredible stuff!

Biomimicry is a breath of fresh air, utilizing the best of human consciousness, awareness and compassion. Imagine designing buildings, cities and even whole countries based on the principles of how nature works…this is the tipping point in action!

More About Janine

Janine is President of the The Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit organization whose mission is to naturalize biomimicry in the culture by promoting the transfer of ideas, designs, and strategies from biology to sustainable human systems design.

She has authored six books, including Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature. In this book she develops the basic thesis that human beings should consciously emulate nature’s genius in their designs.

2012, Crop Circles and Mystical Phenomenon: Daniel Pinchbeck

January 16th, 2012

Listen To Daniel Pinchbeck:

Play

Daniel Pinchbeck

When I decided to start this website and interview series, one of the first people I thought about interviewing was Daniel Pinchbeck.

I read his book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl a few years back, and was blown away by his relentless quest to understand the mystical prophecies surrounding 2012, and his voyage around the globe to acquire a clearer lens as to what it all means.

As many of the tipping interviews touch upon, there is something special and unique happening on Planet Earth right now.  Much of the phenomenon is right in front of our face, and many people would argue that the myriad of social, political and economic systems being challenged, even questioned, at this time is part of some form of transcendent leap humanity is undergoing.

Bt what about the other stuff…the things that our thinking mind, our intellect, can’t quite grasp?  I am talking about mystical phenomenon: psychic powers, extraterrestrials, crop circles, spirit guides, ancient prophecies, angels, and all the potential marvels that the greatest science-minded, rational folks of our planet can’t explain (or simply dismiss)!

For a moment try and imagine what human awareness, human consciousness, might be like in the year 3012.  Is it so hard to conceive that in 1,000 years from now the phenomenon we currently hold as ‘mystical’ will be very real and integrated into our existence in ways we can’t possibly understand or foresee right now?

Use that same imagination and go back 1,000 years to the year 1012, and visualize what those people would think if they experienced life in 2012.  Do you think they would say there is some magic in the world?  What do you think these people would say about iphones, airplanes, and the Internet…would these things even be in the realm of comprehension about what is possible? No way.

So together, lets begin wrapping our heads and hearts around all the realities in the world, our lives, and this universe that we simply have not evolved to the point of comprehending yet!  Enjoy the Daniel Pinchbeck interview because some of the things we discuss (new concepts of time, crop circles, mystical phenomenon) are 1000% part of the tipping point we are amid.

Nassim Haramein: Deriving Energy From Empty Space Key To Tipping Point

January 4th, 2012

Listen To Nassim Haramein:

Play

Nassim Haramein

Perhaps the biggest challenge science has faced over the last hundred years has been to decipher the nature of what is commonly referred to as a ‘unified theory’ for the way the universe operates.

As smart as we like to believe we are, human beings still cannot reconcile major differences between how we understand things to work at the very smallest levels (subatomic) and the largest levels (cosmic or astrological).

And because the things we observe in the night sky, like the stars and planets, must be made from the same general stuff the things we experience in our daily lives, like our bodies and water, this is a pretty big quandary to have while claiming to be so intelligent!

Even though there have been new developments over the last few years with the promise of adequately explaining how the whole thing works (like string theory and super string theory), there is still great debate among the Planet’s intellectuals.

A NEW Way Of Looking At It

Today’s Tipping interview, Nassim Haramein, has some unique insights into this great debate and has quite a different perspective from many of today’s mainstream scientists.

Although somewhat controversial (to some he is the next coming of Einstein while to others he is a quack with no bite to his bark), Nassim’s ideas are absolutely captivating and revealing in terms of the type of consciousness that may need to manifest if a global tipping point is going to take hold.

One of Nassim’s coolest assertions is the idea that science has been looking at the WRONG things for hundreds of years.  Traditionally, human beings have looked to the stars and planets, oceans and forests, bodies and organisms to try and figure out the laws of the universe (it makes sense to try and figure it out from things easy to observe).

Nassim looks at it the other way, and focuses on what comprises 99.99% of the known universe: empty space.

His life’s work has been spent decoding the nature of empty space and his most recent paper claims to prove that right here and right now human beings have the ability to extract endless amounts of energy from space itself.

This claim would revolutionize the way that we look at the universe, and would revolutionize the manner by which human beings operate as a species on this planet.

If Nassim is right, and his paper proves to be true, the changes that might occur from such a discovery could transcend the very nature of what it means to be a human being.  To say the least, it would be a huge step to generating a worldwide tipping point!

When listening to Nassim, put yourself in the space of ‘what if’.  I mean, what IF Nassim is right?  And we thought ‘the world is flat’ was a funny falsehood to believe in!

Much Love and HAPPY New Year to all of you wonderful Tippers!

Todd

Janine Benyus and Biomimicry on Tipping the Planet

January 2nd, 2012

Janine Benyus

Biomimicry or biomimeticsis the examination of nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements to emulate or take inspiration from in order to solve human problems. To me, this is one of the most exciting scientific endeavors taking place on the planet right now and I am THRILLED to interview Janine Benyus who is one of the world’s leading experts in the field!

Humanity has seemingly forgotten that nature provides us with all the information we will ever need to build a thriving and sustainable world. I mean, the earth has been here for billions of years and it is STILL here. We have veered away from accessing and utilizing this knowledge as we grow, grow, GROW at an unnatural pace bypassing all the incredible wisdom around us.

Biomimicry is a breath of fresh air, utilizing the best of human consciousness, awareness and compassion. Imagine designing buildings, cities and even whole countries based on the principles of how nature works…this is the tipping point in action!

Jean Houston, Margaret Mead, Helen Keller on Tipping!

Jean Houston

One of my all-time favorite quotes is the Margaret Mead gem: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has“.

THIS is the Tipping Point experiment in a nutshell, and today I am thrilled to be interviewing Jean Houston, one of the great story tellers of our time!

***

If you are not familiar with Jean’s work, this is a ‘MUST hear’ interview. She talks us through the current state of the world from the perspective of a cultural anthropologist who has spent 40+ years working on the ground in over 100 countries with the intent to deepen our understanding of what it really means to be a human being.

Because Jean consults with many of the world’s top business and political leaders, she gives an interesting perspective about how these people hold the whole systems shift we are ensconced.

We talk Jeffrey Sachs, Occupy Wall Street and also about her encounter with Helen Keller when she was a child.  She speaks of our collective need to nurture healthy learning communities, and the power of human potential through the vehicle of creativity.

Jean’s life has been mythic journey and her views about what is happening on the planet right now are relevant and enlightening!

There is also a comical moment where I was positive I heard Jean say ‘I have come to believe that we are NOT going to make it’ and I am glad I push her on this because what she said was actually quite different.

In the end, this interview symbolizes why I started this website in the first place…and I encourage you to share this beautiful dialogue with friends and family!

A Tipping Point in the World of Finance- David Martin

November 28th, 2011

Replay David Martin:

Play

David Martin

The interview with David Martin is a truly unique one on Worldwide Tipping Point.  David and M-CAM (the organization he runs) have planted themselves within the heart of what many feel is the true darkness within our society: the financial arena.

David’s mission is to change the world of monetary exchange from the inside out.  As you listen to this interview, you will get a sense that the manner in which David and M-CAM hold financial transactions is very different from what we usually hear.

How so?  For one they focus their attention on the human implications of value exchange, something our culture has apparently forgotten about if you read the newspaper or watch the news.

If a shift is going to occur within the economic realm, I think the energetic that David and M-CAM bring will play an important role as it is time we truly recognize how far our system of money exchange has evolved away from our most basic human values.

There is a lot I am excited about with this interview, but perhaps the most thrilling piece to David’s work for me personally is a platform M-CAM has built called Global Innovation Commons:

Using The Current System For Radical Global Change

As most people are aware, the global patent system is a platform used to halt the spread of creative ideas much more than it is utilized to spread the benefits of creative, life-supporting innovations.

In fact, over 90% of the patents ever filed are virtually buried and never used, as they serve the primary purpose of protecting existing patents making it extremely hard for new innovations to manifest in the world.  Business as usual, right?

The only problem is that we are living in a world where 2 billion people live on less than $2 a day and 17,000 children die of starvation every 24 hours.  And some of these ideas, these patented concepts that are used to protect the wealth of giant corporations (for the most part), could be utilized to alleviate this massive amount of suffering.

But the innovations are stifled, stuck in the matrix of legality that would make it impossible for some small village in Ghana (as an example) to access, say, a life-supporting water filtration system that some mega corporation ‘has a patent’ on.

Or are they?  David Martin and M-CAM claim this is not the case, and they have built an incredible platform called Global Innovation Commons that unleashes the use of existing intellectual property to a global community.

As it turns out, the global patent system is not as global as you might think.  Each and every patent granted to an individual or a corporation would need to be filed in every country individually in order for it to have a truly exclusive global claim.

And it costs a lot of money to file patents in every country, which is why very few patents are filed this way.  You see where this is going?

David and M-CAM recognized the gap in coverage within our ‘global’ patent system and built a technology called Global Innovations Commons which:

1)   Searches every patent in the world

2)   Figures out which countries the patents have not been filed

3)   Compiles the results in a database for global citizens to access

Do you see how incredible and brilliant this is?  M-CAM has been working with groups from all over the globe who have come on to Global Innovation Commons, found relevant patents that address specific problems, and are implementing culture shifting innovations that are helping people live better lives.

To me, this is a prime example of the Tipping Point in action and the connective power of the Internet in its finest form.  Like a tree breaking through a sidewalk (which we see all the time but rarely recognize how incredibly powerful it is), Global Innovation Commons is changing the world from the bottom up.

Listen to my full interview with David (above) to hear some great examples of how Global Innovation Commons is being used ALL over this planet!

Marianne Williamson- Are We PAST The Point of No Return?

November 15th, 2011

Replay:

Play

Marianne Williamson

 

One thing I will say about Marianne Williamson: she is FIERCE!

In this Tipping Point interview, Marianne speaks very clearly to the ‘bottom up’ movement that is happening around the globe, a phenomenon she claims is literally changing the world from the inside out.

She speaks to the fact that right now 2 billion people on this planet live on less than $2 a day…and that current human reality sees 17,000 children die of starvation each day.

Marianne’s voice is needed in these times, and listening to her I hear echoes of ‘Mother Earth’ coming through saying ‘stop, look around you, look at the insanity, it is time for change’.

The activists may not love this conversation, but that’s OK.  I think one thing we are uncovering in these Tipping interviews is that there are countless ways to look at this widespread calling for social change happening all around the globe.

To deny the spiritual component, the part that holds the potential for a critical mass of us to wake up and ‘tip this thing’ might mean denying the source code phenomenon that holds the purest potential for the tipping point actually taking hold!

So I ask all those solely committed to activism: what IF the chaos that humanity is ensconced really is just part of the evolution of our species? What can we learn from this?

This does not mean that we should stop activism and action, NOT at all!

But perhaps fostering a healthier relationship between those who focus on the spiritual awakening and those who cater to activism is where the REAL change can happen.  Perhaps this is when the worldwide tipping point REALLY takes place!

Enjoy and share, thanks!

More About Marianne:

She is an internationally acclaimed author and lecturer. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers.

Four of these have been #1 New York Times Best Sellers. A paragraph from her book ‘A Return to Love’, beginning “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” – often misattributed to Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural address – is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.
