I can imagine going to a place of great comfort and beauty where I meet with
a number of different people, representative of varied interests,
excited about this project
from a variety of angles -- because of the work itself, not specifically
about a single bottom line, i.e., "how much money it will
make." [Even so, with just a little studied consideration,
it's soon obvious how this web has quite a number of very strong
channels for financial success.] That understanding aside [and
these are people passionately motivated to ensure a triple bottom
line], we soon are immersed in a stimulating conversation about how
we may collaborate along the wealth of avenues this vehicle for a new
kind of global unity offers.
a literal consciousness-expanding work of global proportions.
provisions for language translation – requiring a whole team in itself.
– presentation, context languaging of the fundamental ideas.
business aspects, including taxes, nonprofit status, money
management/accounting, employees, …
creation of a board and what will be the role and commitment
that would mean for each of its members.
technical side of webmaking and upkeep.
expertise, including publishing and necessarily our own
PR, marketing the concept [one option:
local hospice staff, or people they might suggest; they do
a stunning job with this in their organization].
out-front business end, which will be substantial, including
memberships, sales, protective guardians of all the live
interactives [especially those concerning children], revenue
processing and accountability.
many necessities for having our own legal counsel onboard.
aesthetics and savviness of setting up expansive and very popular
venues for online communities – and nurturing each one into
its own quite substantial presence.
“PDD”/Physical death and dying concerns.
Within that subweb there will be several highly
fluctuating populations or communities:
children dealing with grieving; ditto for teens and for
adults; legal issues; home funerals and green burials; networking people to other websites/experts,
etc., like suicide crisis help and for those who are grieving;
the creation / collection / making available of numerous data
and forms [e.g., state laws regarding death, essential
forms and where to get them, legal procedures sate by state --
OR: links where to find this kind of reliable
Something not up yet is a page devoted to Hospice, which in many
cases now also includes palliative care! People may not know
there are now for-profit hospices.
I currently work at the original nonprofit hospice in my
city and have learned a great deal in the year that I have been
there that would doubtless be very helpful, such as dispelling
myths about legal and monetary aspects that would otherwise
prevent people from utilizing these incredible services.
And similarly for the “LLR” / the Larger Life Reality Portal
with all its variegated offerings, looking squarely at the
underlying ideas where visitors are first introduced to
subweb will be the educational hub of the multiple sites about
the basic ideas and introducing all the subsites, including an
extensive library for onsite materials and an exhaustive
booklist [think amazon.com] including their and our reviews and
the option to write their own commentary [monitored carefully].
It will have a free membership page much like a yahoo
homepage that will offer a number of ways to accumulate their
favorite pages from the sites [except for areas that are
membership based and fall outside their field of choices, such
as, someone would or would not have access to pages in the DTCII
or ESC membership subwebs, depending on if heshe is a member of
either. If so they
would be able to access it from their personal pages.
and related needs.
data entry and editing on the front and back ends of the site.
Networking across a rich platting of many different
interests, talents, needs, support; across several very large
“subwebs”/thematic interests – online and off [offline and
online example: EHE
organizing of conferences in the many ways that can be done,
online and off.
interpretation and “salability” of what it takes to make
this material / these ideas as familiar and magnetic as the
terms “near-death experience,” “out-of-body experience”
now are to most people.
customer service and question-answering; our email setup; will
we offer a phone option and if so under what conditions?
We have by
this time talked many times on the phone, or gotten together in smaller
numbers, etc., and everyone will be familiar with what is on the two sites.
For everyone who
makes the choice to take on the adventure, part of the terms will be
they are in agreement with the overall project and its goals in the
spirit for and of and by the Experiencers themselves – their own
collective Voice, the social-organizational key.
Other “voices” will also be present, including another
powerful voice – that of what Rhea herself preferred to call
“students” of these Experiencers and their Experiences, rather than
“researchers,” which she mapped out in some detail in her background
papers. I would much prefer
this second group to be publicly open about their own such experiences,
but I would not ask that from anyone.
As to Experiencers’ preferences about whether to attach their
names to their EHEs, I will follow Rhea’s take on this, which is,
it’s a personal decision, of course.
By “happy,” etc., I do not mean they have to agree with
everything. But if others
are inspired to take a significantly different approach, such as to
Rhea’s work, to the emphasis on Experiencers, or the idea of the New
Story, this is not the right project for them.
We meet for several
days to begin to iron out who is committed to this and to be as explicit
as possible about what that means for each individual, to really get to
know each other in this context; to brainstorm networking for exactly
the right fit for everything and how all this will look and feel in the
final wash of going public. We
will discuss what’s on the websites, suggestions for improvement or
additions or where there are inaccuracies.
We need to make a special point to really look at any possible areas of
disagreement or discord and see what we can do with anything of this
nature that comes up.
We will also take a
deeply studied look at money in all ways.
Where’s the money coming from to initiate and sustain this
through thick and thin [I have some ideas I’m excited to look into,
for starters]. We will each
consider how we will arrange our lives with this “new child” in our
midst, with what will become its many care-givers and devoted tribe.
It is a huge undertaking that, if it is the success I envision it
as a meta-community / information site, will require no small number of
co-adventurers! What will be
our organizational model and how do we set this up?
We need a timeline with which to work and initial capital.
There will probably
be regular such gatherings as all this begins to form itself into surely
the ultimate path-making journey we can take together – for the sake
of the Earth as well as Humanity and, in Rhea’s soaring words,
“until we travail no more.” After
all, a world-wide consciousness revolution, based on the many millions
of people who have had and have such experiences, as well as those who
may not consider themselves to be Experiencers and whom I think of as
EHE Empaths, is no small thing! We
are together a movement such as has never been seen on this Earth.
And who knows, this may be a similarly unprecedented development
in the ‘discarnate’ realms as well.
Ahhh-TheLight.com and wHeretwoworldsTouch.com comprise what can
become one of its primary torch bearers.
Imagine our entire
species Waking Up to that MORE that it means to be Human.
What a thought! I
believe Rhea’s own Project of Transcendence, along with many EHEers
who point to this phenomenon, each in their own way – from the very
ground of their beings and experience -- is
THE New [Global] Story.
