Joel Sartore is a photographer and a contributor to National Geographic Magazine.  I say this as an introduction, not because I think you need to be a photographer or a speaker, or a highly successful anything, to contribute from your own expertise to the welfare of our society and to the welfare of the Biosystem.  You can do what you can do, and what you can do is enough, so long as you educate yourself well enough that you do not do more harm than good.  Watch Mr. Sartore’s pitch here:

“I am now fully aware of what multiple chemical sensitivity, or MCS, is and how it is affecting my life and the lives of my children.  I wish with all my heart that I had known 20 years ago so that I could have prevented some of the harm that has come to myself and my family.  But how could I have?  MCS is a hidden disorder.  It is a much maligned and misunderstood disorder.  To understand it, one must understand the whole evil underpinnings of our greedy commercial system.  Who wants to think about that?  Who wants to acknowledge that our entire way of living is toxic, built on lies and greed?  That’s a real downer, right?”  Quote from blog, Sound as a Crystal

 We cannot fight and win over a superior power, but the superior-power aggression methods don’t work anyhow.  They never have.  All they do is recycle the toxic sorts of human power trips.  And there is no human power trip that can defeat the superior power of the Biosystem.  The Biosystem response will be to quietly and passively CHANGE until it reaches a new kind of balance that does not include humans.  That’s what WE can do that will work to change the future rather than to just repeat the victim/perp cycle over and over again.  The time has come that we can grow a new kind of human social system that is based in achieving a human-friendly balance of power among ourselves and between ourselves and the Bosystem.

But we cannot do this without reducing the human population because there is no longer enough food to just wait around until we get it right; it would be better if we reduce the population in human-friendly ways, rather than wait for Armageddon.  The only way to do THAT is to discuss the issue among ourselves.  Frankly, I think that is the lesson that God is waiting for us to learn. 


 "Much of what passes as Christianity is a negation of the Sermon on the Mount," Gandhi said in a famous lecture to the YMCA in Ceylon in 1927. Though that still rings true, he helped Christians around the world reclaim the nonviolence of Jesus, and reminded us of the central importance of the Sermon on the Mount.

Bare Bones Biology 153 - Compassionate Earth Walk

The Compassionate Earth Walk is a spiritual pilgrimage

honoring our place within the community of life.

 

The human species is at a crossroads.

Our decisions now will profoundly influence the future of our children and of the whole earth.

 

The Keystone pipeline has become a poignant symbol of the risks of fossil fuels, the tension between economic priorities and human well-being,
and the threat of climate change to all life on earth.

We trace its route through the Great Plains with peace and compassion,

eager to hear all voices, including the wordless voice of the natural world,

blessing the earth with each step,

listening, witnessing, and offering service.

 

We walk as a prayer for all earth's children,

 

The walk is intergenerational, intercultural  and interfaith. 

Join us.

Questions for discussion. 

(1) What is the most important need in my community and who should be involved in a dialog about that issue.

(2) How does this need differ from the needs of the ecosystem?  How do you know what the ecosystem needs?  Which is more important and why?

Question for Discussion:

How can you develop a small, local, life-supporting community that seeks information about the real facts of Life, while at the same time making our human lives less competitive and more compassionate?  

Activity:

Look at the pictures in this blog.  How many things do you see that cannot be recycled by the corposystem.  Don’t forget the flyspray they used on the horses

Recommended Action/Question for Discussion: 

I’m tempted to suggest that you start an argument and consider what methods you use to win.  And what are the results.  But in fact I doubt that you need to know more about how to argue.  So instead I suggest you find a person with whom to discuss an issue and see how long you can keep it going without either of you having an obvious emotional reaction (because this will be a serious subject.)  Maybe you could try this one – http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/11/26/why_birth_control_is_still_a_big_idea

“In the United States, especially this year, any occasion when contraceptives and public policy overlap seems to be an excuse to fight about other issues.”

 Question for Discussion:  What is a community?  What is your community?

 

Suggested Action:  Purchase a $20 copy of the movie Economics of Happiness, or borrow a copy from the Peach Clubhouse.  Find a couple of friends who have not seen the film.  Invite them to dinner, a viewing of the film, and discuss the question above.   Better yet, go to The Economics of Happiness second annual convention in March -- in Australia!!  And/or, join The Economics of Happiness networking hub http://www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org/
