Inspiration & insights along the path toward happiness & wisdom
We don’t have anywhere else to go. No other planet in the solar system is a suitable home for human beings. It’s this world or nothing. That’s a very powerful perception and, so again we’re messing around the global environment in a very serious, very stupid way. It’s not enough to say that corporations can do whatever they want as long as they make a profit, not if they’re putting at risk people all over the world. They can’t.
I think there’s a certainly a chance of us getting out of this mess, but not by business as usual. Not by the idea that we shouldn’t plan ahead. Not by the idea that anybody can do whatever the hell they want and it doesn’t affect the environment. So, there has to be a new way of looking at the future and that is that we are all humans and that we are the same species on one fragile little planet.
We are all in this together, and we have to work together.”
“A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet. One of the great revelations of the age of space exploration is the image of the earth finite and lonely, somehow vulnerable, bearing the entire human species through the oceans of space and time.”
