OK, so imagine this. The freeways in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago, San Francisco and New York are without a single car, still, quiet, no traffic at all. All trucks that transport food and goods across the country are sitting back at the docks. All the planes are grounded. The U.S. and indeed the world is at a standstill. You can’t get to work and even if you could, your company can no longer function, there’s no oil, no gas, and no way to fix the problem.
That is the scenario that CNN tells us will actually happen by 2009, if nothing changes, and our fuel consumption continues at its current rate because we cannot produce fuel fast enough to meet the demand. At some point, in the not too distant future, we will be out. The U.S. uses one-quarter of the available fuel today. That is why your gas prices are so high. The oil companies know this and are raking in the profits while they can. That is why they refuse to put ethanol pumps at their stations.
Meanwhile we are also continuing to ignore the issue of global warming as if it isn’t real, or it’s someone else’s problem. So we still use regular light bulbs, we continue to buy baggies, canned aerosol sprays and all the other polluting materials and products and we feed our egos with Hummers and “ the bigger the better” choices for transportation. Instant ego gratification and ease are more important than the future of our children.
Some say, those who see the problems are simply naysayers, predictors of doom and gloom. Check the facts for yourself. It’s time to wake up.
We are living on this planet as guests and we have not been good guests. We have not taken in to account the needs of our neighbors or the needs of our future generations. But I believe in us. I believe that we can still turn the tide and begin to be responsible. Here are the reasons I believe in us.
This is a huge, ripe opportunity to create things the way we really want them to be if we wake up. We are learning about the power of manifestation in nearly every best seller, on Oprah and in DVD’s and movies. There are more awake people on the planet than ever before.
Globalization, the Internet, is our effort to grow out of a hostile win/lose economics into a global family that works for everyone. Every country for the first time in history was united in prayer before the war started. We are cooperating in other ways; communication, interfaith dialog, travel, money exchange, space stations, international treaties.
Our youth have unprecedented power to create a better world through Internet communication and they have little interest in racism, warfare, prejudice or greed. They have set up sites like, Youth for Environmental Sanity, The Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Youth Alliance, The World Spirit youth Council.
In places where there is no money, people are creating their dreams- China with the red flag canal, in Africa where schools are being held in Quonset huts, in countries where people are relying on insight, intuition and inner wisdom that matches the earth frequency.
Economies and personal lives are beginning to be measured by quality of life. More people are feeling the dissonance that comes from acting out of harmony with one’s inner truth and what is best for the planet.
We have the know-how to shift to clean sustainable economies that work for everyone with new technologies that are nontoxic and recyclable.
At the same time that global warming is a looming threat that already effects everyone, it can become the greatest peace process as well for the same reason.
When I first began teaching in the late 70’s and during the 80’s there were less than 200 websites on anything spiritual. Today there are:
- Spirituality 96,100,000 sites
- Consciousness 90,400,000 sites
- Global warming 110,000,000 sites
- Enlightenment 51,800,000 sites
- Awareness 423,000,000 sites
We are learning more today about sacred geometry, energy systems, our relatedness to the planet and every other sentient being, healing, reincarnation, simultaneous time and other realities. Science is now proving all the things that metaphysicians have been saying for ages. The scientific community has made a 180-degree turn around about the issue of consciousness and they are now positioned to prove the things that spiritual teachers have been teaching.
So the issue becomes that we are beginning to understand that we are participants’ not just passive receivers of reality. Every decision we make counts. Every thought we have counts, and all of it is creating our future here, right now. There is no doubt that we can fix this. The question is what kind of world do you see—and are you willing to create it?
