We are witnessing massive disruptions in the natural world as Earth attempts to restore balance to itself through accelerated climate change & increasingly violent weather patterns. We live in unsustainable structures hogging too many resources & taking an enormous toll on ecosystems. We also eat processed food infused with deadly chemicals that wreak havoc on our bodies.
Our societal constructs are teetering on the edge of similarly massive & tumultuous shifts. We spend the weekend polluting ourselves with disruptive media & poisonous intoxicants to break from survival stress.
We think & speak to ourselves & others in demeaning & self-defamatory ways that have far-reaching adverse effects on our physical, emotional, & psychological well-being. We divide. We gossip. We consume. And now we have people fighting the symptoms of social inequality with the same shortsighted tactics we see the Western medical model using to fight disease. The more we fight symptoms, the sicker our society gets because the root of the issues remains unexamined.
But once we can get real & take a long, hard look at the core issues humanity is facing & take responsibility for the imbalances we have created… Then, we can make the Giant Age: a shared vision of a balanced, sustainable system supporting everyone in being fulfilled on all levels of their being.
