To the Editor:
Deep gratitude to all who give of your precious life energy toward a better community and world.
Caring for one another and our home, Mother Earth, is perhaps our highest and most urgent calling. We are late in the 11th hour of our profound opportunity to awaken within the emergent dream of a future that works for all. We are being urged to co-create at the deepest levels of our individual and collective consciousness, a new dream, story, culture and communities of active, healing hope and well-being.
Well-beingness is at the foundation of right relations. Right relations are at the root of ending violence, war, mass incarceration, racial injustice greed, arrogance, ignorance and much more. Love dissolves fear and strengthens all our relations. If we truly act profoundly to care for the Earth and one another, we will rise in well-being and sufficiency for all. We have the freedom to act in love and peace, to see that no one is hungry, alone and in need. We have the inner strength to rise to engage the challenge of climate, population, food, energy, water, equality, equity, health, and abundant learning for life, in a debt-free society.
I traveled to the climate gathering on the national mall on Sunday, Feb. 17, and met our larger self, in the mutual presence of deep unity and resolve to create together the resilient communities we need. Thanks to all the community support here in Athens, the organizers all around, the 56 on the bus to D.C. from Athens, and the approximately 50,000 broadly diverse D.C. gathering of kindred spirits. This is a call to the Great Turning, the new dream, story and culture, that is ours to live together as neighbors, in the peace of healthy watersheds, foodsheds and forests… near and far. The urgency is upon is all, and all are invited. The urgency is upon is all, and all are invited.
