Earth is Our Home

November 18, 2015 — 2 Comments

Yes, the Earth is big. Probably way bigger than any of us can imagine… Just tap into the ever-reaching mountains touching the heavens … the blue, bottomless ocean …  and the softest sand dancing with the dunes of the desert.

If there is one thing I would like you to get from this video, it is that: The Earth is big. And we all share it.

It is our home. 

And yes, I only mention the Paris attacks in this video. I am not even trying to get the list right. It is too long. Too many beautiful amazing places on Earth have been hit by terrorism. Beirut, Nairobi, New York, Moscow… What occurs for one of us occurs for all of us!

It is time for change. 

So I am using Paris to show you something about you. You, my friend, have a choice. 

You have a choice of who you be in the face of tragedy.

You have a choice of you would like to be on this Earth.

Will you go for the trauma and drama — or will you be the possibility of something completely different?

Is now the time?

Be you.

PS. I wrote an article for the Huffington Post called ‘Not on Our Watch’. If you would like to explore what Tomorrowland could truly be like, go HERE to read it.

Our brothers and sisters in Paris, we are with you. As fellow citizens of this beautiful planet…what occurs for one of us occurs for all of us.

Sometimes out of the greatest tragedy comes the greatest possibility. Sometimes it is what we require to wake ourselves from the slumber of apathy.

We don’t necessarily have a choice about everything that gets created in our world, but we do have choice in how we respond.

Would we all be willing to ask what contribution we can be to make sure this never occurs on our planet again?

Will it happen again, someplace else? Maybe. But what can we step up and be willing to be that would change our world and reality so this can no longer happen in any of our cities, states and countries around the world?

East and west are irrelevant. We ALL live on this planet together.

Now is the time for the voices of possibility and awareness to speak up. Now is the time for us to stop being silent. If you would like to see something different as your world, BE the energy of that showing up in the world.

Know that it can exist. Don’t deny it. Don’t negate it. Stop believing that it has no value. Your awareness of something different and something possible, is what has the greatest value at a time like this.

What do you know that will change the face of our planets future that you haven’t been choosing?

If we would recognize this planet as our home, what would we all choose that we are not yet choosing? And if we did choose it, what might occur that hasn’t yet been able to?

Let’s stop letting the future of our planet be in the hands of those that scream the loudest and hate the most.

Let’s take back our future and recognise we have the capacity to create a kinder, gentler, more inclusive, less judgmental, less vitriolic world.

It is within our grasp.

WE, together, can create it.

If not us, who? If not now, when?
