Jessica Davidson has an inspired and ever-timely post about Active Hope and the Spiral Transformation that I’m really happy to share with you.

When I hear the word hope, I always think of the great writer, statesman, dissident, and transformative leader Václav Havel s insight about hope:

Václav Havel (1936-2011). Václav Havel Library Collection.

“Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.”

In her post on Active Hope and the Spiral of Transformation, Jessica writes:

“Last time we introduced the idea of Active hope and the stories that shape our society. The old myths are failing and the new ones are still being shaped, so we find ourselves poised between worlds – lost, confused, and a little freaked out. It’s hard to keep up with the pace of change or make sense of what’s happening.

The temptation is to turn away, but our problems will only get worse if we refuse to look at them.

So what can we do?”
