The key to the future of the world, is finding the optimistic stories
and letting them be known. ~ Pete Seeger
Scientists are now calling this geological epoch, the Anthropocene, the 6th greatest extinction in the history of the earth. The actions of human beings have been as destructive as the asteroid that hit the earth 65 million years ago. We have accelerated the extinction of species to dangerous levels and permanently damaged the biosphere of our one and only planet. We have degraded the air we breath, the water we drink and the land we live on. It now takes a planet and a half to satisfy our current life style. We live on the brink of global catastrophe and yet we are still waging war against the “other”.
Like Cain from the old Bible story, we have not learned how manage our fear and anger so we can solve our inner conflicts. Like Cain, we blame the other. Now the weapon we use is not a knife but nuclear missiles capable of destroying all life on earth. We have not learned the simple lessons that every spiritual teacher has taught us-- to love one another. Instead, we often live entranced by media stories, ignoring the reality of the suffering we cause on this planet. This trance will lead us further down the road to extinction if we do not wake up.
The world needs a miracle right now. Miracles are possible. A miracle is something that happens when you change your story, when you wake up and change the way you think. Stories are the key. And we are all natural story tellers. We tell ourselves stories every day to make sense of our daily experiences. Stories speak to our deeper selves, our subconscious minds and our emotions. Stories have the power to transform our thinking, to motivate us to reclaim our voices so that we turn around and begin walking on the road towards evolution. It’s not too late. We have just enough time. Are you ready to walk with us?
