The mission of this book, the training and the website is to teach leaders how to systematically elevate themselves and others to their highest level of well-being, empowered to accomplish great things on planet earth. The book and training workshops support leaders as they design and build an arcology of well-being in the location of their choice, living and working together at the highest level of unity with their circle of like-minded family and friends. These arcologies can be built nearby or in the poorest places in the world to elevate the circumstances of others quickly and permanently.
FAQ: IS THIS COMMUNISM? SOCIALISM? OPTIMISM? IS IT A CULT? WHAT IS IT?
The answer is simple: It's a co-op.
The initial response might be to label an arcology of well-being as “socialism,” but socialism is nation-wide, enforced by law and doesn't enjoy the benefits of a free marketplace. The beauty of Plan 777 is it successfully interfaces with capitalism in a small, nimble, privately owned and voluntarily joined, cooperative environment. This plan may have some aspects of socialism such as health care, but it also has some aspects of a free market, with the opportunity to start your own business and operate in the open marketplace that socialism doesn't allow.
We will instead populate an arcology of well-being with families who own Mom and Pop businesses, because family owned businesses have the unique flexibility to fully utilize the giftedness of everyone in their family, the capitalist, the artist, the technology buff and everyone in between. By focusing around the Mom and Pop business, an arcology can create an advanced contribution economy without disturbing the global economy. We can create an entity that does very well in the open marketplace. We can craft and mold an economic system that supports the well-being of each individual without leaving some frustrated or so utterly unsatisfied while others are loving life in a purely capitalist economy. A hybrid perhaps? A combination of Capitalism and Contributionism that seeks to meet the needs of ALL PEOPLE rather than a select few.
Families of multi-generations will join our efforts to create an economic system and social structure with higher values that protect those family members that it usually crushes. Because they are related there will be a tremendous amount of love between them and a strong desire to ensure their well-being. In a capitalist society, we are forced to leave behind our loved ones who can’t seem to figure out the game. We have no way of helping those who can’t find a job or can’t make ends meet without putting our own household in financial jeopardy.
An arcology will start with 100 multi-generational families who live there, not just those who are dissatisfied with the world as it is but the entire family, those good at making money and those who are not. Rather than dividing and dispersing family members into “employment” with different companies and corporations as we see in capitalism, arcology members will work together for the common good. Arcology businesses would enjoy a gift economy in relation to the members who live there and when engaged in community service, while at the same time seeking out capitalist transactions in relation to people outside the arcology. In so doing, the arcology will be distinct from the economic and social system of the world, yet present itself externally as another member of that world, having a positive influence on that world.
When an arcology brings in a gifted expert, that expert will then bring her entire multi-generational family with all of the gifts that go along with each member of that family. They will work together as a family on some projects and work on their own as individuals on other projects. They have the option to join one of the teams within the arcology to offer their personal strengths, knowledge and expertise while they also assist their families with the Mom and Pop businesses they bring to the arcology. Each member of the arcology will have the freedom to manage their time by writing and offering a Contribution Agreement that makes them happy. They are free to modify the agreement as their life purpose develops. They will never be forced to work at a job they hate or spend long hours at one thing while being forced to neglect equally important aspects of life. The end result will be a new economic system and social structure that has the express purpose of developing well-being for all.
Some might call this the "gift economy." Others call it a "tribe." We simply plan to have the same kind of relationship that we now have with those in our own household, freely sharing and providing for the needs of our larger household. When our "tribe" generates prosperity, their capacity to share will expand to support the most vulnerable of our population such as orphans, widows, disabled veterans, foster children, unwed mothers and the homeless. We don’t have to go looking for these people. They are members of our own family. Everyone reading this can think of someone in their family, an aunt, an uncle, a niece, a nephew, a grandmother or grandfather who is in great need of your help right now, but you may not have the means to help or even know how.
The final and most important aspect of the plan is to branch out from the arcology where you live to build a sister arcology somewhere in the world where there is great need. This step is crucial to the development of global well-being. Rather than expecting third world nations to become part of the game of capitalism, we will offer a buffer between them and capitalism that will give them the edge they need to survive and thrive in today’s economy. The exact same edge we gave ourselves.
As the first arcologies are built, we will have some examples of best practices to use for our future calculations. It is important to your own well-being that the number of people you include in your tribe would in your own estimation be sustainable.
Our strategy is to facilitate a paradigm shift to create a generation that understands well-being and will design a new economy and social structure with well-being as the bottom line. It all starts with the online discussion here at GlobalWell-being.org. This is the open door to living and working in one of our newly designed well-being habitats.
Our experiments will be a model arcology that we can build around the world. The results, through trial and error, will be happier people, better quality of life, a healthier world and a sustainable future for the planet.
COMMONALITY WITH ALL MANKIND:
We are all one! We have the same inner workings no matter who we are or where we come from. The 7 Dimensions of love correspond with the energy centers of the body. Each center activates the next as they are fulfilled and satisfied. When we work together to satisfy and fulfill our need to survive in safety and security, we can open to the next dimension of love, and the next and the next, allowing more and more people into our circle. The final result is Global Well-Being as we embrace all people without judgment or prejudice.

AWARENESS EDUCATION PROGRAMS:
We plan to build a new community model and social structure that includes a small self-contained economy that supports the larger, global economy. We start with education that will build communities "from the inside out." Higher thinking will lead us to global well-being in ways that even a child can understand. Our approach is so comprehensive that we can partner with every uplifting organization in the world.
We offer many of our educational programs free of charge through the internet to ensure that our profound message will be accessible to the world's poorest children and their families. We can lift the entire population of the world to plan for well-being on all 7 levels with 7 concrete steps and 7 applications for each. We regard each individual as a great asset, identifying, developing and implementing their greatest strengths for the common good.
We hope to influence families, communities, governments and corporations to voluntarily adopt the 7 questions of well-being below as a guideline for all decisions. Business owners, attorneys and politicians who can answer "yes" to these questions will be supported by GlobalWell-Being.org.
7 Screening Questions:
Survival Industries Must be Not-for-Profit
We believe that survival is an inalienable right for every man, woman and child, therefore the industries that ensure survival must be protected from profiteering.
Governments and corporations have taken over each of the elements of survival industries starting with the raw elements that were given to us freely by Mother Nature. We must stop the global practice of withholding these for profit especially water and food.
We hope to pass laws prohibiting the generation of profit and withholding of products that support basic life needs. Profiteering is the greatest conflict of interest ever conceived when applying it to the basic needs of human life.
We ask governments and corporations to adopt the protection of survival industries as one of their primary concerns. The industries below must be protected from all profiteering and given freely to all mankind.
Reclaim Survival Industries
The corporations took over each of the industries that ensure survival, dismantling the family owned business while systematically destroying the planet. Their goal was to create an invisible barrier between us and the things we need. This invisible barrier is called "money." We believe that the basic needs of life must be owned and operated by the community itself, not by international profiteers. Survival industries must therefore be "reclaimed" by community cooperatives and mom and pop businesses that only seeks to produce enough to support the community in which they live.
