When we come to it
Humanity is at a crossroads. In every way--- spiritually, emotionally, morally, ecologically, and technologically---we are standing on a precipice, looking out over a strange, new landscape. Never before have people had such power, such opportunity, and such challenges.
We have the power to obliterate human life or feed everyone on earth. We have the tools to create fuel from hydrogen or vegetable oil, yet our national policies we are still being shaped and controlled by the oil industry. We can cure disease, but our cures give rise to increasingly antibiotic resistant bacteria. We have choices about when, how, and how many children to have, yet children are still being born addicted to drugs, abused, and neglected. We can fly to Mars, extremely make over our bodies, alter our DNA, clone animals. We have access to global communications as well as the inner workings of our own psyches, and yet, for the most part, we are only using them to do more of the samecompete for survival until we die of stress related diseases, in a world that seems to be spinning out of control. Why are most of us are not happier as a result of all this progress?
We live in a promised land only dreamed of by our ancestors, in which most of us reading this have warm homes, enough to eat, and the strong likelihood that our children will grow up to have children of their own. Yet we are strangely empty. What will give our lives depth and meaning in this brave new world? What values and visions will guide us?
We can reflect, dream, and create. It is up to us, now , to choose how we will evolve, and who we will become, as individuals, as a culture, and as a species. In this moment you and I are creating the planet's future, as we create our own. We need to call upon the most ancient wisdom, combined with the most cutting edge technologies, to invent completely new ways of living, working, thinking, and loving in the 21st Century.
