I have tremendous personal passion for our environment and the current challenges we are facing as the human species to maintain our existence on this beautiful planet called “Mother Earth”.
In my recent interview with author Lee Van Ham about this groundbreaking book titled ” Blinded by Progress” we speak about the many challenges we are faced with, but probably most importantly our need to break out of the shackles of our own thinking and illusions which hold us back from making the changes that must to occur for the human species to survive.
As many of you might be aware, American’s utilize the equivalent resources of about three earths. Not only is this this statistic alarming, but at our current rate of consumption it is certainly not sustainable.
As Lee states “We need to move from a Multi-Earth view to a “One Earth” view. One where all human beings can have a chance to live a life with the natural resources, food and shelter to maintain a reasonable standard of living.
Embracing the One-Earth view will require a spiritual shift within all human beings, one where we start to see our world at “we” and not just “me”. We can no longer separate ourselves, and label others a poor, an undeserving. We need to throw out our judgements, and embrace a world united as one focused on the needs of all humanity.
In my interview with Lee we discuss what is needed to awaken our species both from a position as consumers to one as stewards of this planet’s resources. I know you will resonate with Lee’s message and his passion for the topic.
