Evolution or Extinction - the Bigger Picture
Last night I was watching a Discovery Channel DVD from their series The Planet, and realized that these times are transition times for all living things on the planet; people, plants, animals, water life, birds of the air, and insects. All life faces the possibility of extinction. Humanity is being forced to re-examine its values, attitudes, actions, beliefs, and the part we play in the biosphere, both as nations and as individuals.
Over-consumerism cannot continue because all of life is living in a sewer that gets worse as we go along. The global crisis is painful, but it cannot be avoided if the planetary biosphere of all living things is to survive.
The present international dialogue and discussion of errors in thinking is necessary before we either drown in our own pollutants, or escalate our fears of each other into global war. This is still a possibility. Ideally we will get beyond this phase of evolution to a stage of respect for the views and freedoms of others, and a balanced way of living on the planet that does no harm to the biosphere. This is about evolution, our evolution to an expanded and higher way of thinking. We must evolve, or be destroyed by the planet itself.
We have the gift of consciousness and the ability to make choices that affect the entire planet. We are a global consciousness that exchanges information using the latest technology and this exchange of information will eventually lead to making plans together as one mind. It is said that other great Earth civilizations have reached this stage and destroyed themselves, because they could not evolve in their thinking past the need for power and control over each other and the planet. It is also said that some civilizations have reached this stage, gone beyond, and left for the stars. It could be us, if we make the right choices.
"Evolution is consciousness become aware of itself."
Would like to read your comments. There is hope.
