CandiceODenver Candice O'Denver San Francisco Today there is so much freedom for all kinds of people to live the way in which they want to live—primarily due to the social activism of the last forty years—but there still isn’t enough. Since the beginning of her life, Candice O’Denver has known many people who have made many profound changes in the world. She has always seen the power of community organizing; people gathering together to enforce change where change is not wanted or accepted. Candice has been involved with all of the great movements: civil rights, domestic violence, international women’s political caucus, and as one of the founders of Big Sisters; however, Candice O’Denver has seen through her own social action work and through that of others that, until we know the nature of mind, we will not be able to accomplish the goals we wish to accomplish with social action. It is impossible because the organizations and institutions are comprised of people, and if people do not know what to do with things like desire, pride, anger, hatred, arrogance, envy, jealousy, etc., there is going to be chaos in that organization with constant breakdowns, no matter how many different management teams or new ideas are brought in to try to straighten things out. The things that we see in society are a mirror image of us, because we all together created the society. By everyone being educated in the nature of mind, we have a new idea of what teaming is—people coming together using all the technology available to solve a common problem. Candice O’Denver feels strongly that providing education in the nature of mind is social activism of the greater order. This is social activism of today, and we must have priority for social activism because everything else we want to be socially active about needs to be fueled by the beneficial potency of open intelligence in order to be successful.
