“The idea of a pollution-free environment is difficult for us even to imagine, simply because none of us has ever known an energy economy that was not highly polluting.” (Lester Brown, Worldwatch Institute)
The film, 2040, shows us we already possess everything we need to transition to new economies, systems and ways of living, organizing and being….beyond the outdated money systems, industries, social agreements, belief systems and politics that now pollute the web of life.
Global waves of people are everywhere rising, rebelling, organizing and creating to highlight the problems and to rollout incredible solutions.
Expectation rules outcome, and people at large are now reflecting an expectation that reality be underpinned by ethics, sustainability, accountability and wellbeing for all.
In short, everything has changed and is continuing to change. It is literally an unstoppable evolutionary wave, gaining momentum by the hour.
There is no turning back.
The days of behemoth, bloated companies and nations putting profit and privilege before planet, species and people are coming to an end in the swirl of exponential deconstruction and reinvention taking place.
We are living the threshold and transition points that at a crescendo point (sometimes called ‘the hundredth monkey effect’), coalesce and propel people and systems into new foundations entirely.
The Aztecs spoke of ‘suns’. Not literal suns, but time periods which related to the birth, death and rebirth of cycles, and that all serve different evolutionary purposes. It is said we are in transition from the Fifth Sun to the Sixth Sun, a transition period that began in 2012 and ends in 2021.
From 2021, we will have landed into the Sixth Sun and its evolutionary focus upon the earth, the environment and are capacity to evolve into responsible caretakers.
As we transition, we are figuring out those ways of being and systems that will reflect learning how to be here, consciously respectful of the web of life, and co-creating accordingly.
In the meantime, Koyaanisqatsi (from the Hopi language) may be what we are experiencing:
- crazy life
- life in turmoil
- life out of balance
- life disintegrating
- a state of life that calls for another way of living
As we co-create our ways now to reverse the pollution of our collapsing systems, we are called now to remake ourselves with fresh energy. All that we require is already here, dependent only upon our will to make manifest, in more sacred partnership.
Transitions are messy, but they ultimately herald another way of living. Once-firm certainties dissolve, we flail for a time in the grief of what no longer exists or works, our ships sunk, and we discover we have washed up on a new beach entirely….and learn how to move forward.
The time of the Sixth Sun draws near. Bypass your old programs and seeming certainties, find your feet in the Field, join the others…and create.
Expectation rules outcome: what are you expecting and what will thus be your outcome?
