tiny acts: new earth rising
everyday millions of us wake up. we eat and drink. we might go to school or work. or help others in some way. we buy food. we use a phone and a bank. we consume media. we shop. we go out. we travel. we chat with our friends.
without some of these actions humans could not live. companies would not be built. some communities might not exist. our global economy would certainly cease to function.
which is to say that though we sometimes may feel like small fish in a very big pond – in fact we have tremendous power
the problem is absolutely not that we do these things. it is HOW we do them.
are we part of a fair global economy for all – or are we enabling a system that disconnects us from ourselves, each other, and the earth, while taking advantage of the many to benefit the few?
we’re on a journey back to a more connected, humane, and fair system of living, working, and being. one tiny act at a time we can begin to evolve our way to an infinitely more peaceful, meaningful, and sustainable way of life for everyone who is up for it.
the only question is how?
no two ways are the same.
everyone has their own path back to themselves, each other, and the earth.
a small part of our broken world belongs to each of us.
how is something you buy made and who benefits? does your work place treat everyone fairly? what could benefit from your voice?
what part of a new earth might be calling you?
citizen journalists, creative cats, budding social entrepreneurs, social media nuts, good idea people, producers, make it happen peeps, and community organisers:
together we can create, inspire, launch, and share research, campaigns, memes, new ideas, experiments, events, and other tiny acts that can redirect our power as citizens, consumers, and workers, and spread this learning far and wide.
an energising multimedia collaboration has been planned. learn by doing about how to get your act off the ground. skill swap. consider. explore. share. help others to do the same.
to join our citizen-led communal making grab a cup of something warm and schedule a quick chat. we’ve got loads of evolving to do and there’s something for everyone:
flow on said the trees.
their roots reached far into the ground from where they connected with all the other living things down there.
flow on they said. as they converted all that energy to make some much needed shade for my hot and tired limbs.
flow on said the trees as they cared for each other – sharing food with sick trees, and turning carbon dioxide into oxygen for everyone.
flow on they said as they dropped a sweet orange at my feet.
as I listened I heard them sharing the mysterious secrets of life and everything.
flow on they said. life is short. there are things to see and beauty to be made. be strong. there are seeds to be sown and games to be played.
with the leaves. and the wind.
find the way back to more connection and the powerful energy of life flowing everywhere. an infinitely more peaceful, meaningful, and sustainable way of being awaits.
the only question is how.
no two trees are the same.
everyone has their own path back to the earth. and their own way of getting their.
fellow humans. like the ground on which we walk, we are so much more than we appear to be. fantastic seeds of evolution are sprouting. and the time is now.
