Fierce Wisdom: A Community of World Changers, Emerging Leaders and Freedom Fighters…

There are few things more fun or "social" than interacting, shaping, and evolving with a community of like-minded souls working towards common goals; in this case, the upliftment, self-realization, and personal empowerment of the people of the world.... The great force and benefit of the community is in its sheer mechanics: the contribution of so many voices, so many diverse opinions, and the great range of experience intrinsic in a setting that is available to all people the world over. Therefore, I invite you to:

Introduce yourself, and share a link (if you like...)

Here we break the unwritten rule against self-promotional links in the body of blog comments! I've always enjoyed stretching the rules to their breaking point, so in this case, I am going to ENCOURAGE you to go all out with a link to your website, a blog post, or a link to the work of someone you respect and admire; someone who is working to change the world, make a difference, transform themselves, or break the paradigms of selfish greed, complicity and conformity which have become all but commonplace in our contemporary lives.

This is a brand-spankin' new site so not expecting a firestorm to start out with, but this post will be at the top of the community section for a while, and I expect the community to grow rather quickly so there's a good chance of getting great exposure and meeting some like-minded folks you can possibly even start building alliances with....

More on the Intention Thing

The whole being greater than the sum of its parts, the potential magic to arise from this community is awe-inspiring to consider. I'm looking forward to it...

To those ends, you will find in these pages some of the greatest inspirational, intelligent and practical wisdom from the great, established and emerging leaders of our times, as well as world changers, fighters of the status quo, the rebel spirits and "transformationalists" (I think i just made that word up). It is my intention in this gathering place of great wisdom to help forge a stronger connection between us all, so that the whole may benefit even more, and the individual and collective transformation we seek will have potential to wield a far greater force than it would otherwise.

A Community of World-Changers, Freedom Fighters, and Emerging Leaders

If that sounds right to you, this is your place. Linchpins? You know who you are. According to the good ole' Wikipedia:

The word "community" is derived from the Old French communité which is derived from the Latin communitas (cum, "with/together" + munus, "gift")....

In other words, "the gift of togetherness" -- isn't that grand? This is a place to share that grand, gorgeous gift. - Welcome.

Here are the rules:

1. This is a place for exploring self-realization, leadership, changing the world and general all-around online ass-kicking. Expect to be pushed beyond your comfort zone, and possibly forced to question everything (we generally consider those to be good things.)

2. You are encouraged to adopt a "beginners mind." That is, let go of the belief that you've: a) been there, done that, already get whatever "it" is; b) NOT able to do that because of X experience(s) from your past. For those on the quest for enlightenment and/or world domination, this is sort of a pre-requisite.

3. There are no rules (other than a general ixnay on any sort of bashing or other "uncivil" behavior, which will not be tolerated - sorry weird spammers and other hopeless dregs of society, you are not welcome here - everyone else, carpe diem).

The best way to get into the 'inner circle' and stay in the loop here, is to join the Fierce Wisdom newsletter below, where I will be informing you of the juicy insider stuff every couple weeks. For those anemic to email subscriptions, there's always the RSS feed, and for those die-hard "transformationalists" who want to get updates to their email every day that we post here, there's the subscribe to blog updates via Feedburner option.
