  • Critical time
    7 billion on the planet...
    we are transforming our home
    we must adapt
    we must move to a new drum beat
    turn away from the culture of competition
    the who's bigger, badder, richer
    borders and walls must come down

    We live this culture of contest...
    government is a contest of power greed
    education a contest of grading and recognition
    recreation is even a culture of contest
    religion too
    we serve the strongest
    worship the strongest
    together but separate
    so much disparity
    what we need is co-operation
    we are the human tribe

    It's past time to become blind to borders
    remove barriers of skin, language, religion and wealth
    what faces one will eventually face us all

    We humans have been given the unprecedented capacity for cooperation
    we have great minds
    but competition
    does not support our best interest
    creativity is a strong motivator
    the desire for meaning
    the joy of working together
    is a deep source of motivation
    time has shown
    a culture of cooperation is


    I heard this the other day
    this novel thought
    ''the function of the state is to create wellness...''
    for the individual
    for the family
    for the nation
    for the planet..

    If at every crossroad
    at each of the 1000's of choices we make each day
    if every choice we made was the most compassionate, life affirming choice...
    from what we purchase
    to who and what we vote for
    the world would change

    So I ask myself
    with each choice
    at each crossroad
    what if with true awareness
    I choose the most compassionate
    the one that will be most life affirming?
    for wellness

    What if each time I buy a product
    or when I vote
    for who and what
    what if I choose the one that will create wellness
    for humans and for the planet?

    What if you did too?
    simple simple
    the gift of free will..

    It's been proven...10% is all it takes
    just 10% for the population to agree and shift the consciousness of our nation
    which 10% is up to us

    It is the nature of our character that will decide what our world will be...
    is profit the bottom line...
    or will we shift to wellness?
