Hello dear Readers! I wish you all a restful and calm entry into 2020. By all indications, the decade and year ahead of us promises to be full of intensity, revelations, increasing awareness on many levels, and changes for humanity. I have heard it described as a decade of “profound truthtelling.” All this past year on this blog, I’ve written about the deep and profound changes our human race is continually confronting, or denying. 2019 brought many revelations about our collective shadow into the light, along with continued Earth changes and extreme weather events. For those readers interested in photojournalism, go to the New York Times, The Guardian.org and Time Magazine’s websites for amazing photo essays of not only the past year, but the past decade on Earth. We are truly all living through the most extraordinary of times.
On the eve of the 2020s, I’d like to offer a thought experiment. Let me take you forward in time about 500 years. Pretend that it is the eve of the year 2525. For the sake of this experiment, a few parameters are necessary. First, there are still humans living on Earth, and we look mostly the same as we have since the start of the 2000s. And there is still wild nature upon Earth, including land animals, creatures of the sea, birds, insects, temperate forests, beaches, rainforests, rivers, mountains, snow and the tropics. It has changed from what it was like a few hundred years ago, but still recognizable to those of us living in 2020.
Here is where it gets interesting. Beyond those basics of life on Earth in 2525, I’d like you to use your imagination to fill in the details of life on Earth. How do people live now? Are there vast cities, small villages, communities? What do people do with their time? Do they still have what we call “work?” What is life like for the children? Do families live together? Do they have pets? What kind of pets do they keep? How do people eat? Dress? Entertain each other and themselves? Are there many different cultures across the planet? How do they communicate? What is transportation like? Is the Earth clean, healthy, sustained without doing the planet harm, like in the old days of the fossil fuel wars? Have the Earth’s people learned to live in a peaceful way, and no longer harm and destroy each other and the planet? Have they learned to go beyond their base instincts and created societies without hunger, disease, and corruption?
Now think about how the humans interact with all the many beings from other planets and star systems they’ve come to know during the past 500 years. Once they stopped fearing the presence of galactic societies, the gateways opened and they began to have contact with many other races from within and beyond their own galaxy. After a certain point, old popular science fiction films from the 21st century were no longer fiction, as people realized their galactic and interstellar friends had been there all along, simply waiting for the proper time to reconnect. The reunions of humans with their star brethren were a joyous time for all. Instead of remaining in fear and dread concerning what they had once considered dangerous ETs, the human family as a whole learned to trust and rely upon vast assistance from their more advanced galactic friends. This process accelerated the huge undertaking of Earth’s cleanup and restoration towards the end of the 21st and into the 22nd centuries.
Dear Readers, I bring this thought experiment to you as a way to encourage each of us to take our future as humans living on Earth/ Gaia very seriously. For this brand new year and decade of the 2020s is an invitation to us all to use our powers of imagination and creativity for the highest good of our race and for our beloved planet. Can we lay down our old, tired fears and anxieties in this new decade, and DECIDE for the Good, the True, and the Beautiful to reign? Aren’t we completely exhausted from the old paradigm of negative and neurotic thoughts, of greed and war and corruption ruling humanity as it has done for millennia? If you, like me, are ready to create a world based upon love as the foundation, and can envision our world as peaceful, the people as fulfilled, joyful, and living in harmony with Nature, then please join me now and in the days to come in imagining a new world—Nova Gaia. It doesn’t have to simply be a nice, yet impossible dream any longer. The old, cynical point of view we’ve been fed throughout the past half century–that it’s impossible to create a better and peaceful world–must be buried starting NOW–There is more light pouring onto our planet than EVER before, more of humanity awakening to the possibility of a better, more just and healthy way for all to live each day, and an amplified presence of light and of love upon Earth. Critical mass for positive change is well underway, and the new decade will usher it in. Won’t you join our movement for a peaceful, just, compassionate, kind and loving humanity? We are many millions strong and growing bigger every day.
Happy 2020 to everyone! May you each be blessed in your lives with peace and love, abundance, joy, and with the unshakeable knowledge that a peaceful, healthy and abundant world is not only possible, but it is being created by each one of us who hold light and love every day through our thoughts, words and actions. I see the light within each of you, and honor your presence.
