Children of Gaia — Common Sense
In my travels around the world, I have observed that human beings are not sufficiently conscious enough (yet) to implement some basic, although necessary, changes to move collectively into a peaceful space of oneness. To thrive in abundance, we have to simplify our lives greatly and create the conscious shift in perspective that is required today. Removing the obstacles to the process of awakening would enable us to freely share our beneficial technologies for the use and happiness of all living beings. Surely, many technologies already exist today for us now to embody the principles of love, compassion, empathy, and common sense so that we could support cooperative, sustainable and biodynamic Eden-style farming all over the Earth.
So, first we have to raise our individual and collective consciousness to create more clean conservation zones of scarce resources and preserve the large swaths of untouched nature that still exist in many portions of our outstanding planet. We are Mother Earth! She has the capacity to recuperate and regenerate, and so do we, if we give her a chance to. Instead of trying to mold nature according to our desires that are a clear expression of our misunderstanding about the world — thinking that we are separate from all that is — we should really learn how to take care of the environment that has created us in the first place! (Some religious followers might disagree.)
We see more famine, disease and the extinction of entire species because we are hurting our planet, not because Earth is hell. We are actually part of the Earth that can be the paradise we all know in our heart exists! Most human beings believe that they can claim ownership over parts of the Earth and other sentient beings. That is so ludicrous to me! Humanity looks for other planets because we are destroying our very home! The first step in my humble opinion, as an earthling, is to save the Earth and change our ruthless behavior. We must learn how to feel and care. We have given money the highest priority, but money can’t buy happiness!
The day the majority of people unite as one human family to protect the rights of Planet Earth will be the day that marks the change we have all been waiting for. But as long as we keep waiting for that day to come and go on about our normal business, either negatively pointing out signs of doomsday, or thinking that positive change might come from politicians and law enforcement instead, nothing much will really change for the better. Change has to come from within you, and each and every one of us (including myself)! If the human species, which means you, I, and the majority of everyone else, doesn’t manage to shift energetically in time and create a harmonious balance among each other and within ourselves, between the men and women, the mind and heart, the internal and external subjectively perceived reality, it is just a matter of time before humanity will annihilate itself as a result of man’s stupidity and greed.
Ruthless, heartless, criminally minded, profit-oriented, and self-centered people holding powerful positions have prevented sustainable technologies from succeeding on our planet that could have been implemented decades ago. Geniuses like Nikola Tesla foresaw us living in abundance on Earth, filled with love and cosmic consciousness and without the idea that everything has to be for sale. But his laboratory was burned to the ground and his research papers stolen! Today, women are still fighting not to get abused by men and a lot of people have to struggle for the basics, like access to clean drinking water. The task of removing outdated paradigms seems humongous when everybody holding onto power does so largely as a result of the illusion of separation. Being Love and sharing unlimited and immeasurable amounts of it has always been, and always will be, the final solution and answer to all of humanity’s, often self-inflicted, problems that obviously result from the lack of compassion, or love in action.
The necessary change in the political and financial power structure is what we need today. We can’t afford atomic annihilation or be misguided any longer by unwise leaders who assume authority in the dysfunctional socio-political climate. We must learn how to be tolerant and respect each other’s sacred ways, instead of trying to kill each other on a global scale. Each person should be encouraged to learn how to define their own quest for freedom and take full responsibility for their actions that intertwine our Karmic destiny! Who needs babysitting by the military industrial complex that defines man-made laws, if necessary by corporate manipulation, when the cosmic law is inherent to our basic nature that we can all learn how to feel again when making awakening our priority (versus growing the GDP)!
But do we have enough time to change the prevailing paradigm from fear and scarcity to love and abundance? Leading theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and bestselling author Stephen Hawking does not think so. Based on our common laws and social order, I would have to agree with him, but there is something else that might change the course of our foreseeable future. I hope so!
Buckminster Fuller once suggested that instead of spending energy on dismantling a dysfunctional system, we should focus on building a new functional system instead. Everyone lives on the same planet and this could work in our favor! Albert Einstein said that it is impossible to change a system with the same consciousness that created it. Therefore, our planet and our collective future requires the long awaited consciousness shift that is a frequency alteration and upgrade from low to high and fear to love. After that, we can effortlessly co-create a harmonious planetary society that is capable of moving towards the peaceful, abundant, and unified coexistence with all of nature and each other. Our decision-making process would automatically also shift from the brain to the intelligent heart, from thinking to feeling and from calculation to emancipation.
Does it not make sense to internationally outlaw weapons trade and focus instead on peaceful collaboration rather than war and destruction? If the current political and financial power structures on our planet do not support the harmonious co-creation amongst human beings, due to power hungry and profit-oriented corrupted thinking, we need to turn away from what we have been doing until now and change radically!
Healing our violent his-story can be done by recognizing her-story. Our earthly Mother offers us powerful plant teachers to heal and expand consciousness. Since we have discovered these sacred and secret keys and know how to use them, let’s start doing so on a much broader scale! See the next chapter for details on how?
We have a responsibility to throw the element of uncertainty into the equation that would alter the course of our foreseeable and calculable future so that we are not doomed, as Hawking suggests, unless we find another planet!
