The whole world is wondering – “What happens now?”
You may be so excited you could pee your pants. You may be so scared you could pee your pants. Either way, it seems everyone is about to pee their pants. At this point, I would like to mention if you feel like killing yourself, you can do it without actually dying. It’s easy – you just make a decision to be reborn, accept that things are the way they are, and move forward with the energy flow. 1-2-3.
I know, it takes different folks longer to adjust to shock than others. Not all drugs work the same for every patient – your results may vary. But a dramatic change is being thrust upon everyone at once, and no one is left untouched.
That’s why I am buying stock in you and me this election. Because together, we are the ones who can really change things. We can’t be responsible for the actions of other people, and personally, I can only try to do good for myself and other people every day. What about you?
This has been and continues to be a weird time for everyone. And the flow of the people is certainly flowing towards life-affirming decisions, made by each of us. That means being open to learning new skills that are helpful to the entire community. It means meeting other people in your community, and volunteering to help the community. That can mean teach other people the good things you know how to do. People who do the jobs like sewer management (crappy, but necessary) should be given extra benefits, don’t you think?
Do you have a crappy job right now? Maybe right now is the time to bring yourself back into your own mental school and learn new skills helpful to the new green economy. If you are already living a green lifestyle, good for you – don’t rub it in other people’s faces, just help them learn how to do it right. We need more permaculture teachers.
We can fix the planet and live happy, healthy lives. We just need to remain positive and be nice to one another while we work things through. It’s an exciting time for the people of planet earth.
And that means if we choose to move forward as humanity, we can take evolution to the next level, emerging from our chrysalis and realizing a new dawn of cooperation. Or, we can tear ourselves apart with divisiveness and end up dying just the same. The choice is clear for people with clarity of thought.
But who defines clarity of thought? When else are so many people asked to think about the same thing at the same time? It is causing enormous reflection for all of us.
