The only thing constant is change. Since humanity started keeping track of history, this maxim has been presumed correct. Many of the changes, if extrapolated indefinitely, unfortunately lead to the demise of the planet. Why is it that tribal societies, where there is no concept of fashion, maintain harmonious cultures for many thousands of years? A deeper look into the psyche of pre-literate peoples might illustrate to us all that indeed, if we are to survive, a peaceful future will have to resemble our ancient tribal past.

As more and more people have boundary-dissolving insights into nature, and more and more of these people link minds with each other via technology, we can hope for a future where an awareness of the spiritual value of nature is factored into decisions regarding the fate of the planet. By loving each other, dancing with each other, and communicating with each other, we have our best hope for a future where all people, plants and creatures co-exist in peace and harmony.

    So much truth in that piece of writing. It is high time technology was used more effectively to help harmonize our existence with nature and spirit. Makes you wonder who the truly "advanced’ are doesn’t it! Lovely image to go with a nice piece of writing, awesome!

  • I found the writing true and we simply need to re-access as to what direction we are going and be aware of the results of each one. Thanks Craig for your thoughts on this
