Mobilising Consciousness

Kia Ora, A Maori Greeting from Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our planet is an Eden, a biosphere in a bubble, teeming with mega trillions of biota, all experiencing what it is to live. All tightly coupled and intermingled as a colossal organism, that integrates atmosphere, oceans, rocks and trees in a dynamic symphony of relationship ... however in the last 100 years living has changed and they are now changing exponentially.

Today humanity sees itself as the most powerful and controlling of species, yet it has in so many ways lost touch ... when in fact we are all integrated and part of the vastness of the web of life, but have lost our intuitive virtues and our way of 'being' with all of nature. We have become separated from the fragrance of springs blooming daffodils, tui bird song and the expansion and contraction of the seasons - in concord with the deep pulse of the great mother beneath our feet. The feeling of at onement with all that is.

We have forgotten our roots and our long lost extending connection.

Where once we heard the breeze whispering, the river burbling, the trees murmuring, and the rocks confiding their part of a greater Mother earth that pulsed with days of light and under a canopy of stars, cycled through the darkness of star light to a new day.

Now our economic footprint is stamping out our ecological foot print. In doing so crashing through 'the garden' with out us being aware that it is one.

What are the ways we can scale back and withdraw in a 'sustainable retreat' as James Lovelock the father of Gaia theory implores? How can we create our way into balance once again?

If we love our children and our grand children action has to be taken ASAP.

If you have doubts about our environmental pollution and global warming, visit China like I have recently done and spend a good deal of time from Beijing to Shanghai and see through the industrial haze of where such ‘progress’ is leading us. Then travel to India and see where this headlong dash carries us to.
Yet, the people of these countries deserve their day in the sun too.

We need to awaken the local and global community to what it is happening to find solutions and take action.

Climate change is upon us. Stand bare foot out in your garden, a park or in a creek or river and feel from your heart. You will ‘know’ that our world is changing ... fast.

Yes, there is a way through, contrary to many view points - we are evolving and there will come a time when the Noosphere unfolds and that humanity breaks through into a higher evolutionary / spiritual reality however, first we must come to a deeper realisation that we are on the threshold of momentous change and we are also causing it.

Yet we are all part of the solution. All of us.

What are the solutions that we need? Is your government talking about them? Sweden is working at being fossil fuel free by 2020. Today 80% of the food grown in Sweden is organic. Are the Swedes visionaries?
The answer has to be yes!

Who am I ?

I live around the curve, in Aotearoa New Zealand and flew in 'near earth orbit’ as crew with Air New Zealand for 17 years for a total of two years at altitude. Flying trans Pacific, trans Continental, trans Atlantic and trans Australia and up into many destinations in the East.

I witnessed oil slicks and dark rainbow coloured films across the great Pacific ocean, brown and red dust smothering the pristine snow over Northern Canada and Greenland, brown and yellow soils in Malaysia where lush tropical rain forests had once stood and after being clear felled, monsoon torrents washed away the top soil, followed by the tree stumps to leave nothing but the naked earth to bear barren witness. Then often, twice a month I would fly through the atmospheric debris of Los Angeles smog.

I have seen with my own eyes what is happening within the biosphere to our magnificent planet and feel concerned enough to devote my life to convey a wake up call.

Are you with me?

Can you supply me with solutions?

Cooperation is vital.

Arohanui,
