” The world we live in Now” serves the purpose to show how everything is connected. I am using publications from the (liberal) media, in general written by independent experts, so we have a halfways neutral perspective. It also serves the purpose to point out that old systems are indeed crumbling, with a chance to simply – disappear.
This does not need to be scary. In fact, this is a great time to not let uncertainty get the better of us. It is our job now to be as optimistic as we can be. Not by denying reality, but by viewing all the changes as a fertile ground for a New Earth to arise.
We all are part of it. We all are called to assist it’s birth.
What is it we see ? We see the market economy crumble, together with the monetary system. Related to this are such fundamental questions like the value of work and employment, democracy and the widening gap between the interest of governments and the people who they are supposed to represent, or have even voted for them, we see the effect of a wasteful management of resources and energy, as well as the effects of natural disasters on food and food prices.
And we see the empowerment of the individual by means of interconnectedness.
Indeed, it is important for everyone to realise that we are not powerless. It is up to us if we let the world sink into a nightmare, or change the quality of the dream. Yes, many people are suffering in the world of today, there is much chaos, upheaval, disease, unfairness and violence. But there are also so many signs of people standing up and taking things into their own hands, much to the benefit of those around them.
I would be interested to hear of your experiences and observations. It does not need to be huge – just examples how an old world, that was driven by unconscious forces of greed and separation, is turning into an unified New Earth, that is emerging upon a foundation of respect for nature, resources and people. A New Earth that does not follow the quest of the individual for personal gain and comfort, but rather the natural impulse to serve common good and wellbeing, in an understanding that we are not separate from each other.
