Pops and Kma went to hang out on the lawn of the Yavapai County Courthouse. They brought a beach ball that has the print of Spaceship Earth on it. It shows continents, oceans, and clouds as if a picture of it was taken from a satellite. They also brought the Global Goals soccer ball, a spongy Nerf type ball with a 6” diameter, a new Frisbee, and a new book about the Sound Current that they had just bought at the new age shop across the street from the courthouse. They played a little Frisbee until Kma began to have concerns about her throwing arm.
Pops was the one who insisted on going to the courthouse lawn. He thought they could perhaps make their presence known in Prescott and that they were there to inform people about Mother Earth and the Global Goals. Prescott was the ideal sleepy town to make the “2030 Movie of Life” shot at one frame per day. After sitting out in the cold wind for a couple hours, they agreed this perhaps wasn’t the best idea. They could see that it would take a long time to attract and explain the goals to folks. Pops wanted to create an atmosphere of play. He had taken things too seriously throughout his life and as he edged closer to 100 years old, he realized that time had slipped by him. He was already an old man and had never taken the time to play. He still was working on being able to walk on his hands, his levitation trick, and he was dying to get out on the water and to take his beginning windsurfing skills to the next level. He also realized that his year or retirement was quickly coming to an end. It was during this year that he was supposed to do the writing that would save the world. He left his job as school principal at the end of June 2018. He saw the beauty of the 15 year plan of the global goals and how the Muslim students, teachers, and parents at his school got excited and did many projects for the global goals. The kindergarten students at his school would be graduating from high school in 2030, the year the goals were supposed to be complete. They were highly ambitious goals, but he could see from just the response in America, that movement towards the goals was taking much too long. “At this rate,” he thought, “things won’t change much for the graduating class of 2030.” He knew he had to do something different, but he didn’t know what.
Pops also saw that he had only 35 days left till he completed his 180 days of writing. He was feeling pressure. He had completed a lot of creative entries and had many heroes for his “2030 hall of fame,” but as far as he knew, no one, other than Kma, had even read anything he had written. He knew deep inside that he had something unique to share but he didn’t know how to do that. He didn’t use social media because it took too much time from his day, but with only 35 days remaining, how could tell others, the world? He had no social media friends and no friends in Prescott Arizona where he had just moved to with Kma. Would he and Kma hold meetups, go to meetups, open up an office front? There were all kinds of possibilities.
After sitting with Kma for a couple house on the Courthouse lawn, it was clear that this method of play and talk would just take too long. Pops paced the room with a deadline and the problems of the world on his shoulders. He thought, “Perhaps it is not up to me to change the world. Perhaps the world is perfect as it is and I should just let it be. Perhaps the world is some kind of training ground for different kinds of mastery. He could live his remaining days on Earth with Kma in some corner of the Earth where he and Kma could quietly explore the mysteries of life together, they could learn Spanish, and he could hang out with peeps who love to windsurf. He was afraid that it was going to come to that. In his reality, working on Global Goals didn’t pay anything, but they still had to pay for rent, their car, travel, and food. Pops asked his guides for help. “What is the next step?” Pops and Kma regularly followed the axiom “Follow Your Excitement without any expectations.” They rephrased the blurb to “Follow Our Xcitement” and made the acronym “FOX” out of it. They had named their first attempt of a business out of FOX. They were excited to flip a home, just like they had seen many do on TV and so they created “FOX Homes” which later was repurposed to The Master Storytellers. They were finally successful in flipping their home, but it wasn’t a flip. It was more of a slow roll over. They moved into the house they had wanted to flip and three years and a lot of love later, they sold their beloved home and set off to their next adventure to the state with the motto of “God Enriches.” They followed their excitement without expectation to the courthouse lawn, but it was not what they expected, but this move, this action, helped to trigger their next decision. As the question of “What to do next” smoldered in Pops’ heart he decided that he would have to go into meditation to quiet his thoughts and calm his heart.
There were only 35 days remaining of the 180 day story. Pops almost felt the same when he was a school principal. When the school had only 35 days left he would still put in 100% effort until the very last day of school when the very last student left the campus and he could then finally feel a sigh of relief – no students were seriously injured during the school year, no one sued the school, and there were no tragic events. Now with only 35 days left, he began to question if the year of early retirement was a waste of time? He thought that he could have spent the time down on some sunny beach windsurfing and learning about plant medicines. He was shown that the 35 days was more like a finish line. It was visible to him. He would put all of his energy into the next 35 days until he crossed the finish line of June 10th, 2019 and then he would stop his posting of anything on their website of 2030.one and trust that the enlightened business owners would take over the Global Goals. It was his and Kma’s dream to create a better world. Perhaps it was only for him to create the better world inside his own heart just as he imagined each individual on the planet would do. He imagine 8,000,000,000 gurus on planet Earth who were constantly evolving and learning about the love, truth, and beauty inside of their own hearts.
As Pops sat quietly in meditation and listened to the Sound Current, he imagined reaching out to as many people on the Planet who were not only ready to play, but to take some actions towards the 17 Global goals. He imagined churches, mosques, and temples working together to clean up the oceans. Schools and businesses would take on a goal and empower their employees, students, and affiliates with a sense of purpose. He could see that it was time for him to take on social media to see what it would take to create a following. He would say something like, “How to change the world in 30 days or less.”
After his meditation he shared his idea with Kma and she liked it. He imagined it would be a tricky path to follow because the solution was not just the Global Goals but it ran much deeper than that. The mystery was in the nature of the infinite. “What would it take to get everyone talking about the infinite,” he wondered?
Pops felt good about the idea of playing with social media for 30 days. He looked at where 30 days fell prior to the June 10th deadline and it was on Mother’s day, Sunday May 12, and that was perfect. He knew that Mothers have a huge positive impact on the vibe of the world and now, many mothers had made it through the ranks and into positions of authority proving that they could do things as good as or better than men. He thought, “Perhaps this is the time for Mothers to talk.” Pops imagined a world of 50/50 for men and women working together. In his mind, he imagined a world where he had many brothers and sisters throughout the world and they all worked together to help each other and Mother Earth back to health. He would sit on the idea until he completed his morning the next day and then finalize his decision as to how he was going to race to the finish line of the 34 remaining days.
