Why do we contribute to events of this Nature?
Humanity as a collective has moved away from its natural state of being, that is in harmony with all of nature. It is from nature that humanity has arisen and derives its sustenance.
Humanity in its pursuit of consumerism in a predominant state of doing, as opposed to being, is destroying the environment on which it depends for survival, creativity and wellbeing.
This apparent inability to live in harmony with nature reflects disharmony within ourselves collectively.
We tend to ridicule and even attack any that attempt to live outside of the accepted paradigm or demonstrate to others how to be self sufficient of mind, body and soul. This reflects deep insecurity and surely a lack of wisdom, or at least a lack of willingness to act wisely. Most of us are complicit in this, either by action, inaction or both.
We support and advocate any activity that helps others to remember this most important aspect of our lives. Humanity has drifted far from nature and it would seem that it is attempting to ‘conquer’ nature and even destroy it. This has arisen in the pursuit of false dreams of happiness derived from possession, consumption and obedience to corporatism, and one may say, addiction to obedience. Not to mention extreme indifference and arrogance relating to the rest of life on planet earth.
True there are many people in the world living harmoniously with the rest of life, but on average as a collective, we still have a lot we can do differently.
We have ‘unlearned’ all that was once considered wise. It seems we need to reverse this process, which is surely a process of remembering, it is instinctive, many of us know this to be true, it is felt in our hearts and we feel the growing pressure of its re-emergence. We can not deny it……we ignore it at our own demise.
It is for this reason we are committed to working in the fields we do. Any activity, action or endeavour that leads an individual or more to this remembering process is highly valuable. Essentially also, if it is achieved with no ‘real cost’ to the environment or disadvantage of others.
This is no small achievement!
