I preoccupy myself Imagining If. First, it’s imagining being in a paradise on Earth where we care about each other as much as we care about ourselves. Then, it’s imagining getting there. It wouldn’t require a big leap. We are on the cusp of a shift of worldview, and, if we bend in the right direction evolution’s proclivity to evolve toward higher states of consciousness will do the rest.
With heaven’s wind in our sails, maybe a little trimtab action that mortals like me could get behind would steer our course toward sensing humanity as one entity. I imagine having the pulpit. Like Greta riveting people to how dire our situation is, I get everyone focused on coming up with what to do.
To get us over the danger we’re in, where the extinction of humanity is a real prospect, imagine if we gave everyone on Earth food, shelter, education, and health care. Then, with survival handled, humanity could work together on how to be in the world. To get us into the right frame of mind, imagine a worldwide campaign that encourages kindness: school programs for little kids, billboards, Saturday Night Live sketches, reminders everywhere could make the whole world a sweeter place.
“When we start seeing ourselves as one united human species, there’s no telling where we will go.” I saw that somewhere recently. Yes! I can imagine us creating the more beautiful world our heart know is possible and all it would take is for us to come to our senses! I am devoted to doing what I can to help that occur.
