“HELLO! Look at me. HELLO! I am so ZEN. This is BLOOD. This is NOTHING. Hello. Everything is nothing, and it’s so cool to be ENLIGHTENED. Like me.”
― Chuck Palahniuk

The issues of our time:

  • War
  • Greed
  • Poverty
  • Sickness
  • Climate change
  • Loss of species

The list is endless.

I’m not a fatalist, but it’s difficult to see how we pull back from the precipice where everything ends…for all of us.

But if you had to start somewhere, it wouldn’t be to change the hearts and minds of those you see as part of or the problem. No, it would be to demonstrate by personal action how we wish the world different. Absent that it’s difficult to see how we survive beyond the next millennium or two.

Of course, it’s a message we’ve heard many times before, but isn’t it about time we took it to heart?
