Earth, Gaia, Home, The only place humanity has ever known.
We are born with infinite potential, to Love, to Give, to Nurture. We’ve built world wonders and walked on the moon. We’ve built cities in size and complexity as a testament of our power, we’ve created wonders upon which our ancestors would marvel in awe. We pride ourselves to have the ability to reason, to create art, to ponder the repercussion of our actions. Yet with all that genius and all that power that has gotten us this far we haven’t realized that most of our lives have simply been reduced to this.
Our food, is no longer food, but food like products.
Our water is filtered human waste that is being channels back to us for consumption.
Our waste, conveniently redirected away from the city so we don’t wallow in our own filth.
From the first day we are born, till the day we die, we are thought to label, separate, isolate and condemn others that are not like us. Black or White, Pepsi or Cola, Nike or Under Armor. As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun. Yet why haven’t we learned anything from our century’s deep rich history that defines us today?
Why do we have to pay to live on a planet that we were born on?
Is there really a shortage of food? Or is it only available to those who can afford it?
If we are truly free, why are so many people fighting for freedom?
We spend our precious life energy working in jobs we don’t like to buy things we don’t need.
The Human being has simply been turned into a walking, talking, breathing…. Billboard.
Never before in history has a generation diligently recorded themselves accomplishing so little.
We do not have the wisdom to understand that in order to win, no one has to lose.
Whether you are just now starting out your life or whether you are looking forward to a peaceful retirement, it is never too late to stop and look around and ask yourself… is this the reason I am here?
