Focus Your Energy, Not On Fighting the Old, But on Building the New

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” This is a quote from a character named Socrates in Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. As it stands, modern day peaceful warriors are utilizing Gar Alperovitz’s concept of “evolutionary reconstruction” as an alternative to revolution.

This idea of evolutionary reconstruction helps us to focus our energy on building the new so we can eventually replace the old. While the old system decays and slowly dies around us, we, as evolutionary reconstructing peaceful warriors, can build the new by using the ashes of the old as compost for the garden of the new. We have a choice: learn to live in ashes, or rise like a phoenix. Here are five ways to focus our energy on building the new.
