We come from the country, desert, forest, coast, mountains and frozen lands. We live in towns, cities, rural communities and remote homesteads. We are humanity and we have given ourselves the governorship of this magnificent planet. If you could step back and observe this planet with honesty and compassion, what would you see? Could you spend thirty minutes on this exploration, either in contemplation, observation or meditation? Could you record the vision before you so future generations could absorb your discoveries?
It is time to see the totality of our grand and magnificent planet, with all its hardships, inequality, imbalance and unsound political systems and extreme beliefs. This is the age of emergence – where we see the distorted and misguided egotistical commentaries with sharp clarity. Those who can recognise the signs of disharmony can stride forth and shatter the mirage. Those that come next can inform the masses. Then reconstruction can emerge in a way that benefits land, people and animals.
We have amazing minds, but while we are in service to the preservation of ourselves and our families only, our compassion is limited. We are bombarded with imagery of the luxury goods that tell us we deserve more than others, but equality asks more of us. Envy, greed and desperation are the catalysts that sparked a thousand wars! No food, housing, jobs and schooling creates the frantic migrations that unsettle many nations. Anger stems from those who have lost everything. Anger stems from those that must accommodate their misfortune. The world has become a very small place and mass change means we must work together for better quality of life – for all! There are many solutions, but each must make their own way forward. We are naturally emotional creatures with knowledge to impart and love to give, but we need to let go of fear and regain our trust!
Make plans that begin to include the greater community. Offer something, give and receive, dedicate some part of your talents and compassion to people, animals and environment. This is our interwoven purpose.
