I am grateful for growing awareness of our connections.
Everyone I know is grateful for growing awareness of our connections.
Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet is grateful for our growing awareness of our connections.
Because of the shutdown of the American government, more of us are aware of our connections to each other, to the environment, to the simplest things in living.
Because of that awareness, we are realizing we have the power, together, to do things.
Amazingly, a coalition of groups reelected our current president.
A coalition of people have accomplished amazing things in other countries as well.
It feels to me like our growing awareness of all of us is taking us in the direction of wanting to see good for all of us.
The issues have gotten so big and they affect all of us in very visible ways.
I am grateful for the solutions already in place in so many countries.
It is wonderful to read the actions that have been taken in Paul Hawken’s book Blessed Unrest and in his book which he co-authored, Natural Capitalism.
Clearly, we love solutions.
And, apparently, this opportunity has come about where we will now demand them.
It has been amazing to watch the degradation of democracy in our own country.
But it will be even more amazing to watch it be restored on an even stronger foundation, one of awareness, starting right now.
