TEDxConcordiaUPortland – Sharif Abdullah – A World for All – It’s our Choice
Dr. Shariff Abdullah (he recently changed the spelling of his name for numerological reasons) (1) contacted me recently to inform me of the fact that he’d published a book called Creating a World that Works for All in 1999. (2) His research was independent of Werner Erhard’s, apparently. (3)
That’s pretty exciting to hear and I’ve ordered a copy of his book.
Until that arrives, he’s sent the link to a TedX Talk he gave in Portland, which I offer here.
“We need to create a world where all live as brothers and sisters,” he says here. “Inclusivity needs to be our moral value.”
“We have to get this through our hot-button issues … and elevate the conversation to a whole new level.”
“We live in a spiritually-starved society and nobody wants to touch it. Nobody wants to talk about it.”
“We can create a world that works for all beings.”
“Mark Anielski: We can create an economy of enduring happiness, an economy based on love, not money.”
“I think that creating a world that works for all is an idea that’s worth spreading.”
Unfortunately his book is not available in digital form, which may make excerpting from it somewhat more difficult than with Werner’s. But I’m sure transcribing some of it, with his permission, will repay the effort.

(3) Speak of geographical diffusion of a grand idea.

“There are, guaranteed, many, a multitude, of beings upon the planet who, give or take a little, have been given the same inspiration.” (An Hour With An Angel – The Divine Mother: Welcome To ‘New Time’, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/01/27/divine-mother-welcome-new-time/.)
