"The primary cause of global warming is from humans, mostly burning of fossil fuels to
How have we gotten to the point where we are looking at the possibility of human extinction? In our attempts to control life on Earth we've failed miserably. Rather than recognizing that everything we need is provided, we perpetuate the belief, that to survive, we must struggle.
"In complete control. Pretending control, with dignified authority. We are charlatans...
I believe this poem has answers for us. I believe that being the "brush" means that we are the "tools" through which this "painter" creates their art. We are like Pinocchio and Gepetto is the universal force of creation, pulling the "strings". And when we let go of control. we align with this infinite force. In those moments we feel expansive, alive, and inclusive. We've all felt it.
"There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we've been waiting for."
There is a flow to life of great beauty, where synchronicity and magic are the norm. To align with this "flow", we must know how to recognize it. Lean into the voices of inspiration, intuition, and love. Abandon your investment in the thoughts that tell you that to get by you need to struggle, lie, manipulate, hide the true you, or become rich or famous.
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
The balance of our planets air, water, and soil has been trashed. As we are moving closer to the "precipice" of environmental destruction (and our very existence), we are seeing beyond our perceived differences, to recognize that we are one family. We are learning that each person has
skills, gifts, talents, and ideas, unique to them that can be a contribution to the well being of life on this planet. We are stepping out of fear and isolation, into Love.
