Ever more frequent and
intense dire events beset all of Earth's living
creatures. What we humans have grown accustomed to, and to depend
upon, shakes on quaking ground. Detracted from the light still shining,
the forebodings of
our experts and our own concerns can easily
evoke anxiety, even gloom. "Will
life continue on this planet?" There is reason to wonder. That turbulent times are upon us is no
longer in question. Nor is the question of how they can be avoided still
open. The consequences of our
human past and present choices are playing out. The still open
question is will any life survive them?
there still time?
still can and do occur outwardly with changes in mind and
hearts. It is this fact that even now makes our 'present', either for happy or
unhappy results. With understanding
what is occurring, and our part in it, changes must, 'will' come about.
The future is willed. There is not
only a Flood
of water portending now, but a virtual flood of many events brought about by
our own choices and volition, though we may not yet be aware of all aspects
of this doing. None of us are only victims, but creators of our
The rate of change is exponential, and there there is a lag of decades between the time the causes begin to build and the eventual effects unfold. We are told as one example, that what is now occurring stems from choices we made in the 70's, We have yet to begin to see how the radical buildup in C02 in the period between 1970 and now plays out. Standing today the highest it has been in 900,000 years, we are told. Climate change is of course just one of the many rapidly worsening scenarios that are playing out.
The author had a dream in the early 80's in which a man told him that unless those who knew what was occurring did what they knew to do, and could do, that extinction was coming. If this dream was a true one, It could be assumed that at that point it was not too late. About 40 years has elapsed. Too late now? Could be, but as far as I can see. we best be setting to doing what we know and can do, now.
Will Life survive?
The intent behind this web site is to help explore practicable things we can do now to be prepared for what is sure to come; not to avoid or prevent what is already on it's way. Of course, the measures we take to keep from making the same dire consequences will not be wasted time or effort and will have its positive effects. This however is not the full extent of what is now required. There are events unfolding which few have imagined possible. What now might appear to be over-kill, going further than necessary, can instead more likely be not enough. What we invest our will and volition towards must also cover these eventualities.
If life is to continue beyond the culminating period of absolute chaos resulting from our own choices, it must be done while conditions still allow for it. There also needs be new forms and structures for human life readied, suitable and standing for the sustenance of life in the period of restoration of balance. As example, physical structures still standing that have withstood the culminating period and enough knowledge and tools from the past civilization to aide beginning anew. One advantage will be that there will also be fewer old obstructions that now would block their manifestation and growth. Ground for the new will be cleared to nourish and build the new. What knowledge, what ideas, what skills talents, and expertise which serves life now and during the extremes, and while restoration occurs must by free choice be applied now by those who understand clearly what is occurring. Certainly not everyone, or even nearly the majority of persons, will be aware and ready to face the stark realities we now must face and act upon.
This is the call, to do what we do know, and can do. One man, one Noah is not enough. It will now take Noah US, answering the call many of us are now hearing.
Why would anyone say such ominous and threatening things as this? It is not out of fear, but love. Not out of a sense of hopelessness, but engendered action, accomplishment and from a strong sense of purpose; determining our destiny, not playing victim to it.
Facing these realities
full-on is inspiring, stimulating, purposeful and
rewarding. The good news is that there always are alternative ways to influence and create
what we choose. For
certain, not everything beneficial under the sun has yet
been tried. There are new ways, even new possible social structures
arising to awareness from out of the complexities of our
Life begets LIFE, it sparks, conceives, leavens, expands, grows, extends ... exponentially! We must be certain now not to discount or underestimate any opportunity, no matter how insignificant it might appear, or the possibilities it holds. Even a smile. The Sun still shines, and will keep shining, over the earth. It is not yet over for human and other life on earth, if ... we make it so.
Small beginnings catch hold. Each adding our own two-sense worth, sharing what we have
learned, our insight, talents and skills,
fulfilling our hopes, ideals and vision for even a better, beautiful world, inner and
outer, making it so.
... and how do you see it?
