Are We Standing on the Edge?

Are We Standing on the Edge?

This we know: Humanity stands at the precipice. We must quickly decide whether we will continue to desecrate and destroy our planet, or whether we will make the needed changes and sacrifices that allow all of earthly existence to survive and thrive. We are asked to consciously co-create a new reality in which to fulfill our greater, more noble destinies. Indeed it is the very reason that each of us is presently living upon Earth.

This we know: We are summoned, and how we respond is critical. Do we step up to the plate and begin to make the necessary changes, or do we continue to complain, turn away, and wait for others to change?

This we know: We already recognize where change is needed. We already know what each of us must do to become the change we wish to see in our world. We know that there are needy, sick, poor and homeless; and that every one of us makes a difference. And we all realize that we have come to Earth for just such a moment as this.

We may not fully know how to change, we may not fully know what to do, or even if we can succeed. But begin we must! Humankind will surely perish if we do not try.

This we know: Each world begins with You and Me. All of us are Beings of Energy and Light. We are invited to participate in the most sacred task of creating a new world. We already know that all change and creation begins within. So please take a moment or two, or three or more …. Please enter into the silence and stillness at the very core of your being, and please begin the inner process of creating a sustainable and caring world….Continue reading on

Yes we are. It just take us time to decide...

Bunk! Want to save the world... get rid of Monsanto and the long list of political whores that trade our collective future for bucks. We need less soul searching and under-sink recycling and more strong and unified voices that demand the changes needed to save our environment. In the end we will be what is destroyed while the Earth just keeps going on and on.

Yes ... we are on the edge of a precipice. I think it is a cultural and religious cliff that is before us.

CATHLEEN: KUDOS woman. You've hit one of the many nails - maybe the most important one - on the head. It's the "hurrah for me and F you" attitude and life style. Don and I CAN! :-))

Will we change before catastrophe strikes? It's just not human nature to do so, because change requires sacrifice, and very few people have the sense to see that their personal well being may have to take a hit, even if their long term survival depends on it.

To all climate/global warming deniers, please take the few minutes it will take for you to watch this video. Global warming and it's impact on the planet could not be explained any better. Even you, should be able to watch and comprehend.

Well said, thank you!

Dynamite artice, said just right ... you don't always like the truth but there's no getting around it -- deal.

None of us has all the answers but we each have personal gifts. Combined with those of others the energy created is powerful ... for good or bad, that's the choice.
