The reverence of life

I was looking for inspiration for today’s Beauty. All of these quotes are connected.

We need 98% of change or we will face 98% extinction. Bucky Fuller 1978

Change is scary, but the status quo is deadly. Ryan Holiday

You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. C.S.Lewis

No economic interest, under any circumstances, can be above the reverence of life. Artur Manfried Max Neef

Colonisers go to war with Nature and call it a business opportunity. Ayisha Siddiqua

When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologies justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live. Sarah Kendzior

You can’t use an old map to explore a new world. Einstein

It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted in a profoundly sick society. Krishnamurti

We must change our systems urgently. The status quo is killing us. The old maps no longer serve. Using the same level of thinking that got us here will not get us there. Reverence of life must be the ground of being, the Source intention for all actions. We must find a way to reconcile the horrors humans have inflicted upon the other and Earth, and navigate a future that enables the past transgressions to be accounted for. 

All of these actions are complex, requiring an understanding of the whole system. It will take many, aligned, coherent and deeply connected to the Pattern Integrity of the Source of life. 

Coordinating people holding different perspectives and ideologies around the singular purpose of all actions supporting the reverence of life is the challenge.

We can rise to that challenge if we care enough for a collective future.
