Imagine a world where

trees, plants, animals, air, water and earth

are respected beings.

Humans are animals

Let us live in communities of harmony

We all know that there are those people, corporations and the like that are resisting their responsibility for Global Warming. We are also a part of contributing to Global Warming by the nature of living in the civilized world – this is a matter of degree. Unless we have exercised a radical position we are at effect of the power-possessors to contribute to global warming.

Those that remain entrenched in a position those human beings and our carbon emissions do not contribute to the natural phenomena of Global Warming. That Global Warming is a good thing because it means longer growing seasons. This is the reasoning.

Oil and its producers are here to stay. As oil becomes increasingly limited it will become more expensive allowing those rich in oil to stay powerful and the rest of us will pay. There are plenty of scenarios that define the problems of Global Warming and point to solutions on through the Internet and common sense alternatives.

By continuing to resist the Oil Rich effectively insulate themselves from the suffering of the world so they can stay comfortable in their mindset reinforced by their wealth.

Change is difficult. We are raised in dysfunctional families. From the inside this looks and feels “normal” until we compare ourselves to others and to a model of health. In other words we become used to or familiar with the dysfunction of our childhood and these maladaptive behaviors are woven into the fabric of our lives. Then we may work to overcome our dysfunction and live happier lives. Even if we are miserable or unhappy in some way we get comfortable in this place and fall asleep to our unhappiness. Perhaps we were born into the middle class in the USA insuring a level of comfort insulated from the poor in America and in the world; an out-of-sight out of mind rubric.

Comfort allows for a modicum of safety and allows resistance to change to form. We are comfortable in our place and don’t want change. Or we want change without having to work for it. We want some things to change while maintaining our comfort.

Change is uncomfortable. We are leaving our comfort zone to live in an uncertain place where anxiety and fear to the unknown flourish. It may feel “wrong” to change.

Good psychotherapists create an environment where the client may change. Spiritual practices help resist the comforts of sleep for change and transformation to flourish.

In 1992 the frequency of Planet Earth changed. The frequency of the patriarchy changed to something different, but no one knows what the difference will look like. Some have called it a partnership paradigm. We can look at recorded history to see how the matriarchy was different from the patriarchy and we might surmise the nature of that transformation. To us the Huns came across Asia and Europe and decimated the matriarchy and that happened in “the blink of an eye”.

Global Warming is a catalyst for partnership alliances to form to help the most people survive and help balance to world so we are in harmony we Earth instead of using her as an “it” to plunder.

 

Imagine a world where

trees, plants, animals, air, water and earth

are respected beings.

Humans are animals 

Let us live in communities of harmony, with the adage:

“What I do to you I do to myself.”
