It is not a secret that we are living during a time in human history filled with many challenges. From the recent pandemic, global political unrest, the climate crisis, to lack of equitable economic conditions in various countries, we are facing difficult times.
Is it ever going to get better? Probably not without divine intervention, but we can try our best to do our part towards enabling a better society.
This past summer, Society 2045 had a series of interviews with change makers seeking to improve the way society works.
Society 2045 is a community of people from around the world seeking to co-discover a vision for the year 2045. The goal is to connect with leaders of emerging communities and movements across society and come together to co-create a better future.
In an interview with Stewart Levine, we discussed his vision of the year 2045 and ways to improve the world’s present condition. Stewart Levine is a lawyer and author who has been studying human interactions and effective communication for the last few decades.
According to Stewart, the world will get worse before getting better. The level of misunderstanding and conflicts will increase among the human species. With the changing world, the environment will also reach its edge. All these factors will make the world difficult to live in.
For all the problems, people will come up with one solution: fighting and verbal conflicts. They will not think of any other alternatives until the pain becomes unbearable.
One of my mentors used to say, “When the pain of not changing becomes greater than the pain to change, that’s when people change.”
Continuing on the course we are on, as a species it will cost us productivity, emotional well-being, and other mental distress. The cost of conflict will become the wake-up call for people to search for an alternative solution.
Stewart, through his research, understands the need for a human-to-human empathetic relationships to better the world. He knows the essence of unity and power in humanity. When all the resources are on their edge, the world will face a major crisis. Alternatively, a better understanding of the situation and humans caring for each other will take the world to new heights.
Positive collaborations are the need and solution for the upcoming and present era. Opening to the influence of other beliefs and listening to their perspectives will enable a significant step towards positive collaboration.
Stewart is inspired by his father’s ethics and follows his saying wholeheartedly that “If you are not learning, you are not alive”. He has also taught the art of human alignment in his books, which directly leads to better actions towards any situation.
Being an author and lawyer, Stewart has come across many influential and visionary people. All of them have inspired him in a way that would make him think apart from money and conflicts.
He is the inspiration of many because of his influential thoughts and steps taken for a better world.
“We all collectively need to be prepared to take a step forward towards a better future.”
It Takes a Village
According to Stewart, all the un-concentrated industries with narrow approach, all the activities that lead to environmental disbalances, all the little television commercial are distracting people from the core understanding of humanity.
Everyone is using resources for ruling the present world in the now. Most are not taking the holistic scientific approach for preserving the environment for future generations.
Organizations need to get ready to bring positive change into society. Whether it is dealing with racism, saving resources for the future world, organizations need to stand together with a better vision for society, and do their part as a collective.
Stewart is ready to accept the challenge of contributing as much as possible to build a safe and harmonious future world.
Through his e-learning programs based on his books and his collaboration skills, he brings society together with a single vision. People will be ready to listen and learn new facts. They will jointly work on better approaches to living without conflicts.
He has started different help groups to figure out and manifest the vision of this future society. He is building leaders for the world with human alignment, who will stand further with a single vision of making the world a better place to live in.
He is teaching the art of letting go to avoid conflicts between people to live free from any pressure of outcomes. These are just some of the efforts that together can bring lots of significant changes in society.
“For us to experience more harmony we need to seek human alignment instead of conflict and do more listening to each other with empathy and love.”
Stewart’s vision for more human alignment for society in 2045 is groundbreaking. It will be amazing if we are able to achieve his vision in the coming years. Check out the interview here:
