Everything is changing all the time. This makes the search for understanding very difficult. The path is always shifting, and new doors are always opening. It seems that life is more complicated than the simple dualism of "Right & Wrong" and "Good & Bad". The only thing that I feel that I can rely on as a guiding force is love. When I am faced with a difficult situation, I ask myself "what is the most compassionate way? How can I be more loving, and create more peace and harmony with the people around me?"
There has to be a way to live on this planet that is sustainable. I don't believe in any sort of fatalism that claims that human beings are a cancerous parasite doomed to self annihilate. We have the potential to be a very beneficial part of this planetary ecosystem. Let's gather together and begin discussing ways to achieve this. How about solar energy, wind power, geothermal heat, & tidal power? What about electric cars, and maglev trains? What about local food? Can we feed our communities with small scale agriculture? How can larger scale industries and agricultural operations become more sustainable? Let's think, think, think! There are solutions to our problems, I know there are. And once we discover what seems to be a solution we must act. We must actually do something to change. We must find ways to manifest our visions in the real world.
Ultimately we need each other, and we need the Earth. A gigantic military force can't create peace, and an industrial society that relies on oil for its energy can't sustain itself. The future will be defined by those who develop ecologically sustainable methods for meeting the needs of all life on the planet.
Good luck on the path,
Much love, and hope for humanity!
