We are here on Earth to learn how to become more caring.
The fight against a nuclear waste dump next to Lake Huron continues. Go to SOS Great Lakes for excellent updated and background information. Honourable Catherine McKenna, federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change has delayed decision on Ontario Power Generation's request for a licence - again - and invited further public input through the early months of 2017. Concerned citizens also made deputations in autumn 2016 at the Great Lakes Public Forum, to request recognition of radionuclides by the International Joint Commission as `chemicals of mutual concern.' See the media release on radionuclides by the Canadian Environmental Law Association and Beyond Nuclear (USA). Also go to Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump website to sign the petition, see the latest news media coverage, plus videos and related information. Join those of us who continue to intervene actively to stop this deep geologic repository from receiving a licence, by writing letters to your government representatives. Consider the well-being of the planet for our children and future generations.
Awakening to possibility is the promise and hope through our life journey, a constant through life that never abandons us. Simply in being alive we are lifelong learners, to whom life lessons continue to be offered. Growing closer to our human potential, however, means the most important lessons arrive in ways unanticipated, unsought and, regrettably, often unnoticed, by our conscious mind.
A profound truth is that it is we who abandon possibility whenever we resist opportunities to open our minds, and our hearts, to new experiences that deepen and expand our understanding about life and living. Another universal truth is, that possibility remains within us, as an undercurrent in the river of life, indeed, as a hearkening of the soul to call us toward our human potential.
The quest for learning can bestow riches for the mind, the heart, the body and the soul. The `flower of life' symbol is a metaphor for the knowledge we can freely choose to gather. This ancient symbol of sacred geometry is universal, and is said to represent patterns of creation from any living cellular structure on earth to the galaxies.
Indeed, the adventure of life is not limited to the global travels that we take, even when they are to the farthest reaches of the earth. As well, whether on the home front or abroad, it is through opening the door to our interior landscape that we discover, and can choose to develop, a range of innate ways of knowing that include the human heart.
The project of our time is not what the enchantment of technology is bringing to us. More pertinent is what we can bring to the design and applications of technologies that can complement the evolution of human consciousness. Each and every one of us - our ways of knowing once awakened - potentially can heal and transform a troubled world. Thoughts and actions that are life affirming are what conceive the energetic possibility of wellness, joy, love and peace to be experienced among the human family everywhere on this sacred Earth.
