It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
Is your house on fire? I agree with Greta Thunberg when she said,
"I want you to act as if your house is on fire, because it is."
Climate change is just one issue. How are we going to overcome all the epic challenges when it looks like everything is on fire!
James “Gus” Speth - Author of 7 books and a champion of fundamental systemic change with The Next System Project offers some insights,
“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
I believe complicated problems do not require complicated solutions.
Every problem holds the answer to its solution.
Within scientific circles, high carbon dioxide levels are accepted as significantly contributing to climate change. While scientist struggle to develop carbon capture technology, a perfect technology already exists, it is called a TREE.
Planting a tree is a simple solution you can do today to improve our environment. The Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees campaign is one coordinated effort toward a global goal of planting a Trillion Trees.
The cultural and spiritual transformation Gus Speth speaks of, can sound as complicated and overwhelming as dealing with climate change. Scientists may not have found a way to remedy “selfishness, greed and apathy” but WE CAN!
If fear is a root cause for so many problems, could we invent a love amplifier? A technology that restores harmony, eliminates fear and amplifies love in our personal lives and world. Love amplifiers already exist! It is called a HEART.
FEELING YOUR HEARTBEAT is a simple solution to reduce toxic levels of fear in our social culture. We don’t need extensive scientific research to prove we are breathing. Our direct experience is all the proof we need.
The Billion Heartbeats Challenge is a simple solution to a complicated world. You don’t have to understand how electricity works to turn on a light switch and we don’t need to understand why planting trees or feeling our heartbeat is beneficial, we can simply do it.
A HEARTFUL HARMONY REFRESH is how we can put out the fire of selfishness, greed and apathy. By planting Harmony, we extinguish the cause of all fear based complications.
A Heartful Harmony Refresh is a simple skill with three easy steps,
• feel your physical heartbeat
• be aware of your breath
• relax your body into calm
This heartful state of being supports a lifestyle of energetic buoyancy, where life can flow with more harmony, calm, ease, intuition, confidence, safety, concentration, aliveness, gratitude and generosity. As Heartful Harmony becomes an effortless habit, you will experience increased relaxed confidence and “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

With a Heartful Harmony Experiment: The Billion Heartbeats Challenge
It is interesting to note, almost every mammal, including humans have about one billion heartbeats in a lifetime. Humans have on average a heart rate of 60 to 70 beats per minute. An elephant can have 30 beats per minute for around 70 years with about a billion heartbeats. While a hamster with a fast pulse of 450 beats per minute, can squeeze a billion heartbeats into three years.
THE BILLION HEARTBEATS CHALLENGE
Heartbeats for Harmony!
Our epic goal is to bring together one Billion Heartbeats to amplify our personal experience of Harmony and share more Harmony in our world!
We will begin our extended one year Harmony Experiment with the Billion Heartbeats Challenge December 12, 2019 and build momentum through December 12, 2020, culminating in gathering one billion human heartbeats all together at one time. Will you join us? How many heartbeats can you contribute to the cause?
It is easy to participate in the Billion Heartbeats Challenge. The basic commitment is to connect our hearts in a HARMONY REFRESH of feeling your heartbeat, breathing and relaxing for 12 minutes, the 12th of each month. Simple!
There are two main ways you can contribute your 12 minutes of heartbeats on the 12th of each month. It’s will be even more powerful and fun if we synchronize together in GOLDEN HEART TIMES.
Choose one of the harmony wave options to give your Heartbeats for Harmony.
• One Minute Harmony Wave - feeling your heartbeat for one minute each hour for 12 hours
You could set a timer to remind yourself to feel your heartbeat for one minute each hour at the designated Golden Heart Times of 1:01 - 2:02 - 3:03 - 4:04 - 5:05 - 6:06 - 7:07 - 8:08 - 9:09 - 10:10 - 11:11 - 12:12. or,
• 12 Minute Golden Harmony Wave - feeling your heartbeat for the first 12 minutes of one hour.
Or you can just feel your heartbeat any time you want for 12 minutes. It is only 12 minutes a month no matter how you do it!
The Harmony Wave is synchronized globally by minutes not hours so you can start at any time in your time zone.
I plan to host a live gathering the first 12 minutes of each hour the 12th of each month at 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM Central (CST) You can register at www.BillionHeartbeatsChallenge.com for reminders, tips and updates.
Our hearts are timeless, so anytime is a good time to feel your heartbeat! The more you feel your heartbeat the more Harmony will be amplified in the world.
You might be wondering how many of us will it take to contribute a Billion Heartbeats for Harmony.
Based on the average relaxed heart rate of 60 beats per minute, 12 minutes is 720 heartbeats and 12 minutes each month for 12 months is about 8,640 heartbeats so it would take 115, 740 people committed to taking the 12 minute 12 month challenge to bring together One Billion Hearts for Harmony.
To join 1 Billion Hearts in Harmony simultaneously at one time, we need 1,388,888 people to feel our heartbeats for 12 minutes. This may look like a big number but consider, Ellen has over 4 Million viewers every episode, she could easily invite one billion heartbeats at one time.
If you are serious about being part of Gus Speth’s cultural and spiritual transformation to solve the problems of “selfishness, greed and apathy” you can massively amplify our progress by feeling your heartbeat 12 minutes each day and as often as you can. It would only take 3,815 heartful people to feel their heartbeat for 12 minutes each day to reach our 1 Billion Heartbeats for Harmony goal. Are you one of these Heartful Souls?
