Envisioning the Future

Envisioning the Future

A VISION
Planet Earth and all of its living inhabitants are thriving. Human Beings all across every continent are enjoying the best quality of life imaginable. Disease is practically nonexistent. Age related degeneration is minimal, and throughout even the last moments, people live in active independence, with plenty of fresh, rich food and pure water, and in beautiful, comfortable homes. Thanks to such an abundance of material needs, society long ago set aside its conflicts, and now functions with intelligent and harmonious systems. Community and connection is strong and open. Meaningless and obligatory work is unnecessary and people now have the freedom and time to explore life fully. Energy is directed to one’s most desired and creative contribution to society, and to the experiencing of all of the pleasures of living in paradise, including leisure, music and art, and travel. Technology allows us to move around the planet quickly, comfortably, and safely, and we are even exploring the solar system. Meanwhile coral reefs, fish, turtles and whales have reclaimed the oceans. Forests, grasslands, and wildlife have reclaimed most of the deserts. Springs, rivers, and lakes have regained their flow. The climate is stable, and violent weather events rarely challenge people’s livelihood. It is paradise on Earth.
THE CURRENT REALITY
The truth is that there is much work to do to make this vision into our reality. Right now the majority of people on Earth today are suffering from one or more chronic and debilitating diseases, like cancer and diabetes. Dysfunctional minds are as common as dysfunctional bodies, and society is full of resentment, oppression, and violence. For too many human beings today, life is characterized by a struggle to secure just the basic needs of today while chasing the illusion of a better life higher up the ladder of a corrupt system. We work long hours and feel like the cogs of a vast machine that goes on chewing up what’s left of our Planet Earth just to sustain status quo. Indeed the forests and grasslands are succumbing to bulldozers and plows, only to become abandoned deserts after a few years of pumping out chemical soaked, genetically modified crops. Springs, rivers and aquifers are drying up and with it all, the majestic animal species of Earth are vanishing. In the ocean the brilliant coral reefs are dying and becoming algae covered rock, while airplane spotters direct ships to net out the last schools of fish. And we keep on struggling and fighting while the future becomes more and more dim.
THE GOOD NEWS
We know that THE VISION is not a fanciful utopian dream. It IS a choice that we can make right now! Most diseases can be prevented and even cured by changing how we think and feel, eat and drink, and move and rest. Through Permaculture and similar systems of Regenerative Agriculture, we know how to replenish the Earth’s aquifers, springs, and rivers, how to grow more than enough organic, fresh, and nutritious food for all of the 7.2 billion people on the planet today, all while restoring forests and grasslands and stabilizing the climate. The oceans will recover quickly once we take the pressure of overfishing off of them, and once people have an abundance of their material needs, we will be able to heal the conflicts of society and reorganize for peace and prosperity. It can happen FAST! In less than 10 years, we can make THE VISION into the NEW REALITY. We are here to join the countless other individuals and organizations working in Holistic Health and Regenerative Agriculture to make it happen.
