Earth





To the question of 'optimism vs pessimism'... i like what Paul Hawken says:
..::"If you actually look at the science about what is happening on Earth and your aren't pessimistic... you don't understand the data... But if you meet the people who are working to restore this Earth and the lives of the poor... and you aren't optimistic... you haven't got a pulse"... http://EcoDelMar.org/paul



Noam Chomsky's video about "Climate Change"... ... i think what Noam is saying... along with his wonderfully lucid history lesson... is that the CEO's of industry are, in effect, locked into a kamikaze mind-set... if they hesitate, slow down, step back to think... or show what others will call fear, they will be replaced... and if they keep going full speed ahead... we all literally risk human extinction... please see: http://ecodelmar.org/NOAA/ and http://ecodelmar.org/phytoplankton




"Placing the blame or judgment on someone else...
leaves you powerless to change your experience.

Only taking responsibility for your beliefs...
gives you the power to update them...

~ Byron Katie





... We appear to be living in a world of "Ego vs Love"... it's the same old story... with updated semantics... repeated over and over since the beginning of time...

... and while every pursuit of happiness, just for the "ego" always ends in great pain...

... every pursuit of happiness for the "common good", always ends in Peace... unless it temporarily stumbles... and there will never be a "reason" good enough to ever give up on Loving One Another...

... how can you tell which road you are on... it's easy... do you walk with Peace in your Heart... or an ego plotting it's next attack in your mind... both are there... the choice is always in the Now... which one shall we exercise today...

- http://EcoDelMar.org/one/ -



... It's like we've all been traveling along life's highways enjoying the beautiful ride... and now... when we double check the road map.... the road ends up ahead...

... we are venturing into un-charted climate territory for all of humanity... on a beautiful planet plentiful "air" for all it's breathing Life ... totally dependent on the health of the "Oceans" for that "air"...

... some say speed up... some say slow down.... some wish to go back... some say it's too late to go back... most of the scientists say we have a really big problem... and ignoring this problem won't make it go away.... slowing down certainly seems to be a logical suggestion... and trying to understand what is causing the problem....

... many of the "corporations" still want to go full speed ahead because that always worked in the past... i think enough of us now know that was never a very wise option... and in fact, that option gave more power to the corporations.... and the governments are apparently more devoted to the corporations than the people... so who can we turn to... we all know to Reduce our carbon footprint... to Reuse, Recycle, Refuse unnecessary consumption... and we all try to do whatever we can not to exacerbate the problem...

... Peace is certainly more sustainable than war for as long as we all have "enough"... and there is a lot of disagreement over where to draw that line.... how much is "enough".... and the powerful corporations are willing to send your children to die to get "more"... for them... when will we say "enough is enough"... and now that we know that the old consumerism paradigm is actually dangerous for Life on Earth.... is there an organization that is Peacefully saying "enough is enough"....

... is it too late... nobody really knows... do you want to help... that's like asking do you want to take your next breath... of course you do.... it's innate within every Living cell to want to Live... and we all want to enjoy Life... and share the Joy of being alive... we all want to "belong" here... we don't want war and hate... we all innately want to live happily in Peace... and to share with one another...

... so i will "share" a link to some suggestions that you are welcome to share... or not... it's up to you... i do not try to tell you what to do, that's not the way of Peace.... your inner choice is the way of the future.... there is a beautiful "Heart" in every one of us and all the answers are already there... they always were...

... now i know there are some semantics involved here, but let's put the semantics aside so we can communicate... we don't need to ask anyone for the answer because they might answer with "words" or even "advertisements" that are not actually true for you.... and the "messages" that comes from your own Heart is True for you... and for all of us... we feel a calm Peace when we do Listen to Our Heart... and that is the way we Know... sustainable Peace...

... i am not trying to make a play on words...

... and now i will share a link to 311 pages of suggestions that you are welcome to share... or not...

Environmental Ecology... and Mirror Neurons

Now that we "know" about mirror neurons.... we "know" that we absolutely need for many others to "know"... in order to obtain a critical mass... it takes a village to protect the environment...


This is also why www.ACIM.org works best in a group setting... and this is why... "when two or more are gathered in my name... i am there...



This scientific "mirror neuron" discovery... that every human's primary drive is to build a community... to work together ... and to help one another... this "discovery" lights a candle that we can all add Light to... knowing it is our heritage... it is our Nature to be loving and kind to one another... and not competitive frightened slaves to the buccaneers who want us to "think" we must worship wars that are only designed to build an empire for the elite "in crowd"... leaving "We The People" homeless... after we fought and died in their wars... and watched them give the bankers and CEO's our tax bailouts... for their golden parachutes... i think Nomi Prins says it well in this video: http://Youtube.com/watch?v=zGKlpsGdO8c



We are the Living colors of Life... ... animated by Love... made of trillion year old stardust... Joy Lives in our sharing of the Light and all that it gives... in that open field between here and there... we write our Living poems in the sand... Love smiles gently and adores each one... we are the wandering artists, the poets, singers and dancers... with Gratitude, Love Lights our way...


Our Souls resonate to the songs of the whales.... they practiced for millions of years before we arrived... surely we could hear them singing while we were in the water with them... it is the universal call to Belong... although we were born knowing this... we became domesticated in competitive societies at war for survival and dominance... at last Awakening... to realize we graduated Life at Birth... Awakening in the Now to Love... the songs of the Whales resonate in our Soul...


Truth will always pass the test of time... forgive the semantics to get the message... if we think of attack and fear... we are thinking from the ego's side... and when we think thoughts of treating our neighbors as ourselves, we are thinking from the Heart side... this Truth has been stated for thousands of years... simply understanding this Truth is not enough to bring it to Life... it must be Lovingly taught from our Soul and in each Spoken breath... the Loving world you waited for was always the Now... the only moment we ever evolve is Now... Forgiveness lets go... free again to create the Now you Love and Naturally want to Share...


The only way to Peace always includes your brother... the road to war is walked alone by thousands... the choice is always yours... and the only moment of true choice is Now, forever... the only time you can awaken is Now... there is no other time... only fear suggests that you can sleep for a Lifetime... only Love calls you to awaken... the choice is always yours... it's just that simple.... the only moment you can live is in the Now... and yet it is always fear that keeps you distracted into the past and future...

http://EcoDelMar.org/share


Heaven is as near as your next breath.... every brother and sister is created to be as divine as you are each willing to Be... only doubt and fear veil our divine vision... the courage of love lights our way... your brother will see the Light in your eyes when you see it in his... and in this Light, what you share gives you both immeasurably more... every leaf on a tree shares the flowing water given by the roots... every molecule contributes to the wholeness of Life... we overlook the wholeness, if we count each leaf as 'separate'...


We all graduated Life at birth... yet we seem to have forgotten we were born to Live... so we collect posessions as if we must win some imaginary game before we die... as we forget to Live...

... somehow i am reminded of a quote from ACIM.org

..:: " Christ's vision has one law....... It does not look upon a body, and mistake it for the Son whom God created. It beholds a light beyond the body... an idea beyond what can be touched... a purity undimmed by errors, pitiful mistakes, and fearful thoughts of guilt from dreams of sin... It sees no separation.... And it looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and all events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees.

..:: " This can be taught; and must be taught by all who would achieve it.

..::"From the standpoint of the oceans," Guinotte says, "there is no escaping the fact that we are going to need major reductions in our CO2 emissions -- something like 80 to 90 percent. When we see governments arguing about reductions of 10 to 15 percent, I think all of us in the marine science community need to say that CO2 reductions of this scale are simply not going to be sufficient. We have to get 'off' of fossil fuels." ASAP...

..::"The fossil record shows that high CO2 concentrations have likely played a big role in mass extinctions of marine life in the past. "If marine systems start to crash, it may well be too late to stop the train," says Guinotte. "Governments are likely to panic and make irrational decisions; international tensions could certainly heat up. These are the kinds of things that keep me awake at night. I continue to hope we can get it turned around. But it will take political will, and so far, that has been in short supply."...

Acording to NOAA... Ocean Acidification is now unstoppable... a year ago NOAA said it would take about 100 years for the Ocean's pH to re-balance... now they say it will take tens of thousands of years... and no one knows to what extent Ocean Acidification will effect the phytoplankton... and if we do loose the phytoplankton... can we come up with an alternative oxygen source soon enough... when CO2 concentrations get too high, trees stop functioning ... and if forests will fail... crops will fail... the methane hydrates will vaporize and burn out of control... still half the American voters say none of this is real...


It is so frustrating to realize that we have spent trillions on NASA space exploration and massive Military war machines... and such a small fraction of that budget on Oceanic research... and the Oceans are our "Life Support System"... our Oceans are the unbiblical cord for all of the known Life in the entire Universe... and still. industry uses the Ocean as a cheap toilet for toxic waste.

While scientists have warned us of the environmental impacts for decades... yet big oil propaganda groups have been able to keep so many voters confused... just like they did with tobacco and industrial chemical dumping into the Oceans... the bottom line was always their top priority... that's what they called "success"... i call it http://ecodelmar.org/MBA_blindness/




.... the human ego is more dangerous than any species to ever crawl, walk, swim, or fly.... the human ego is causing the downfall of all humanity.... indigenous people Listen to the Spirit of Nature... the Trees... the Rivers... the Oceans.... indigenous people Know Nature... the ego knows it wants to "win"... and dominate others to get what the ego thinks is profitable for the ego.... totally blind to the most beautiful experiences of an entire Lifetime... the ego becomes hopelessly addicted to me... me... me... more... more... more.... Never Knowing Peace... never knowing how to Be One with Nature....

The Oceans need...
more help and less hurt...

Oceanographer Sylvia Earle is urging us all to share our images of the beautiful underwater world... to help make everyone aware of the truth of what is happening to our Oceans... in the hope that it's not too late... the following video on Ocean Acidification is a brilliant contribution to the potential saving of life on Earth... please share it... when Sylvia says: No Blue... No Green... she is dead serious... although her graceful manners, beautiful smile and peaceful tone of voice... leaves us at Peace... there is an urgency beyond words within her soft-spoken smile... http://ecodelmar.org/sylvia



Images of Nature are a great reminder of who we really are... Living Beings who are an integral part of Mother Nature.... our materialistic life style tends to isolate us from this awareness... we urgently need these reminders to balance the tons of advertising that mesmerize us into becoming Consume-AA-Hollicks... Mother Nature is literally being destroyed for profit by industrial giants who only have the bottom line as their top priority... and the more we purchase their products.... the less chance Life on Earth will ever have of a pristine future... Planet Ocean

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come Alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

~ Howard Thurman





..:: " My basic belief is that first you need to realize the usefulness of "compassion"... that is the "key" factor... Once you accept the fact that "compassion" is not something childish or sentimental, once you realize that compassion is something really worthwhile and realize its deeper value... then you immediately develop an attraction towards it... and your personal Willingness to cultivate it...

~ The Dalai Lama



"The most complete and true happiness comes in moments when you feel right there, completely present, with no ideas about good and bad, right and wrong -- just a sense of open heart and open mind."

~ Pema Chödrön



"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."

~ Albert Camus



"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."

~ John Lennon



There are only two motivational factors in all of Life... fear and Love... and of those two... only One is real...
