"Without collective awakening the [environmental] catastrophe will come," he warns. "Civilizations have been destroyed many times and this civilization is no different. It can be destroyed. We can think of time in terms of millions of years and life will resume little by little. The cosmos operates for us very urgently, but geological time is different.

 

 

"If you meditate on that, you will not go crazy. You accept that this civilization could be abolished and life will begin later on after a few thousand years because that is something that has happened in the history of this planet. When you have peace in yourself and accept, then you are calm enough to do something, but if you are carried by despair there is no hope.

"It's like the person who is struck with cancer or Aids and they learn they have been given one year or six months to live. They suffer very much and fight. But if they come to accept that they will die and they prepare to live every day peacefully and they enjoy every moment, the situation may change and the illness may go away. That has happened to many people."

- Thich Nhat Hahn

 

 

The spiritual crisis of the West is the cause for the many sufferings we encounter. Because of our dualistic thinking that god and the kingdom of god is outside of us and in the future - we don't know that god's true nature is in every one of us. So we need to put god back into the right place, within ourselves. It is like when the wave knows that water is not outside of her.

 

"Everything we touch in our daily lives, including our body, is a miracle. By putting the kingdom of god in the right place, it shows us it is possible to live happily right here, right now. If we wake up to this, we do not have to run after the things we believe are crucial to our happiness like fame, power and sex. If we stop creating despair and anger, we make the atmosphere healthy again.

"Maybe we have enough technology to save the planet but it is not enough because the people are not ready. This is why we need to focus on the other side of the problem."

- Thich Nhat Hahn

About Me Goal-oriented and very driven. Spiritual, but don't like to confine myself with religious labels. Religion is a man-made construct. Hopeless romantic, enamored with the concept of love, if not the entire process :) Very passionate, and I fight for my convictions. I'm a lover and a fighter, the best of both worlds.

What Gives Me Hope Life has been around for millions of years. Nothing we can do, even as destructive as we are, will ever completely extinguish it. Life always finds a way.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Enact more stringent restrictions on offshore drilling procedures, if not ban the practice altogether.
