Hello Dear Friends, Cultural Creatives & Seekers Everywhere,
For over 15 years, scientists have been warning the public and government that human behavior has precipitated the planet’s Sixth Mass Extinction Event. The previous five mass extinction events were due to natural causes such as tectonic plate movements, massive earthquake and volcanic activity. The last extinction event occurred over 66 million years ago when a giant asteroid hit the Yucatán Peninsula in southern Mexico. That massive collision upended the web of life resulting in over 75% of all organisms going extinct, including all the dinosaurs.
Today’s civilization has undermined the biosphere to the degree that NASA researchers have concluded that our current “industrial” civilization is facing an irreversible collapse within the next few decades. The only way out is predicated on radically changing human behavior and culture.
The media has consistently been silent on informing the public of the imminent threat of our own extinction. Instead, the news has focused our attention on troubling current issues such as racial, religious, and economic upheaval, the Covid pandemic, and now the war in Ukraine. Perhaps the reason for the silence regarding the extinction is the fact that corporations are the primary source of the problem. Consider the following:
- Once thought to be a boon to humanity, nuclear power, the byproduct of which is radioactive waste, has poisoned the environment without consideration of the consequences of managing deadly radioactive waste and the breakdown of reactors at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima.
- Once thought to be an advance in global marketing and commerce, plastic packaging has polluted the oceans and led to the creation of a massive floating island of trash in the Pacific.
- Once the source of energy that powered the industrial revolution, the burning of fossil fuels has created a life-threatening CO2-induced greenhouse effect and a layer of blackened soot on arctic ice precipitating the rapid melt of the polar ice caps.
- Once deemed a miracle of industrial agriculture, phosphate fertilizers have polluted the soil and contaminated the water table. Fertilizer pollutants in agricultural drainage along the Mississippi River have created a massive “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico.
These are but a few examples wherein corporate interests have undermined the web of life and are contributing to our imminent extinction. Yet, these corporations claim they have no responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Even more insidious, to sustain profits, violating corporations have spent major investments to influence the media and persuade the public that scientific claims of an impending planetary disaster are simply hyperbole.
A “Scientific Rebellion” was organized in 2020, a protest against highly publicized international climate discussions, such as the United Nations Climate Change Conferences, wherein attendees have continuously disregarded proposed targets for limiting atmospheric CO2 without consequence of a penalty. The Rebellion’s online demands state that current actions from governments and corporations are “grossly inadequate” to safeguard future generations.
The deteriorating environmental situation is now so out of hand that scientists are leaving their cloistered labs and engaging in acts of “rebellion” to awaken the public to the imminent dangers. On April 6, 2022, NASA climate scientist Peter Kalmus, and three other environmental protestors, chained themselves to the J.P. Morgan bank in Los Angeles. This bank was chosen because of its investments in underwriting fossil fuel companies’ efforts to expand oil production … the single highest polluting industry in the world.
Kalmus explained, “I’m taking action because I feel desperate, we’ve been trying to warn you guys for so many decades that we’re heading towards a [f*ing] catastrophe, and we’ve been ignored, the scientists of the world are being ignored, and it’s got to stop. We’re not joking. We’re not lying. We’re not exaggerating. It’s the 11th hour in terms of Earth breakdown, and I feel terrified for my kids, and terrified for humanity.” Hours after the protest began, 100 police officers dressed in riot gear, eventually removed the four chained protestors and arrested them.
Following Kalmus’ lead a few days later, over 1,000 researchers around the globe joined the largest ever “scientist-led civil disobedience campaign.” Climate scientists in Washington, DC, chained themselves to the White House fence and were ultimately arrested as they demanded that U.S. President Joe Biden declare a “climate emergency.”
I believe a well-informed public would totally rally in support of global efforts to avert the impending ecological disaster. Unfortunately, the greed of violating corporations seeking profits, without acknowledging or being held accountable for the environmental damage resulting from their products, have done their best to keep the public in the dark as to the planet’s dire situation.
The reason I am presenting you with this story is that evolution is a participatory event, each of us is playing a part in determining the future of the planet. You hold a key in resolving the impending nightmare. It is time for the population to collectively voice their opinions and “vote” with their money, to reign-in runaway corporate control and to assign a major role for corporations in regrowing the Garden. The resolution lies in an informed public that can save civilization, creating a world beyond survival. Heaven-on-Earth is a reality.
The take-home message is to recognize that our health, happiness, and harmony, are the driving force in manifesting our evolution! It is time for us to get involved!
With LOVE and LIGHT,
At this time we are planning for these events to occur and will notify you if there’s a change in schedule.
Years of lecturing around this beautiful planet have provided me an opportunity to encounter wonderful Cultural Creatives that are helping to bring harmony into the world. Each month, I want to honor these cultural creatives by sharing with you the gifts they have shared with me.
This month I would like to honor singer-songwriter, Annie May Willis, and her new single, Born for These Times, a truly relevant and powerful song for this era. Annie wrote this song at the beginning of the pandemic, inspired by the resiliency and depth of the human heart and the idea that we are all contributing to the outcome of our collective fate.
I think the lyrics of the song are worth repeating:
Here we are together, after all
After all the separation and the illusion of control
A common conversation we’re having now
About our survival and what’s important to the soul.
We were born for these times
The heart surrenders and opens wide
Pulsing with the beats of change
and bravely feeling all of the pain
The choice is ours to make now, which way we go
A thousand directions, but one devotion to this love
What changes are we willing to make inside?
Inside our collective crazy mind?
We were born for these times.
The heart surrenders and opens wide.
Pulsing with the beats of change
and bravely feeling,
and bravely feeling.
Come join me and the Heart Coherence Collaborative for the 100 Day Heart Coherence Challenge! The event is entirely free and consists of 100 days of heart coherence meditations, interviews from amazing guest speakers, and fantastic community support! You can register for the event HERE.
Also, follow the Heart Coherence Collaborative on Instagram @theheartcc and subscribe to their YouTube channel, Heart Coherence Collaborative where they will be releasing clips and reels of the event.
I am honored to be interviewed by Dr. LuLu Shimek on the Genetic Genius podcast. In the interview, I discuss epigenetic revolution: everything about energy, photons, stem cells, genetics, DNA and planetary evolution.
Two years ago, I had the opportunity of presenting a lecture for The Graduate Institute in Bethany, Connecticut. At the time, I made a wonderful connection with one of the Wellness Educators, Kahseim Outlaw. Kahseim shared with me that he was writing a book for his own child that he thought might be helpful for other parents.
I recently reviewed his work, We Are Enough, an illustrated book with a powerful empowering message for children. Hopefully, parents reading this book to their children will pick-up the fundamental insights through “osmosis.” We Are Enough supports readers/listeners in becoming more centered, grounded, and connected individuals by recognizing their “enough-ness.” This book reminds us that our existence is a gift and once we recognize that, we can begin to create the beautiful lives that we all came here to enjoy.
