Thoughts on why we are here - now

They died alone

April 4, 2020

In 2010 I researched solutions to the climate crisis after being trained in 2007 by the honorable Vice President Al Gore’s Climate Realty Project. I became a mentor with the group and traveled to help train others. I found that we humans are addicted to oil causing the sixth mass extinction. We are in the age of the Anthropocene. I learned to meditate seriously using Holosynch because I was sick from the realization that any solution was impossible. I prayed for divine intervention. Then in 2014 I went to Chartres, France to study with Ubiquity University's Wisdom School. They use ancient techniques and the original Liberal Arts education which is known to be the oldest form of higher education in the Western world. It dates between the 8th century BC and the 6th century AD, a time known as Classical Antiquity. Philosophers of the seven liberal arts include Pythagoras (570 - 495 BC), Socrates (470 - 399 BC) known to be the father of political philosophy and moral philosophy and Aristotle (384 - 322 BC). I thought surely this group standing on the shoulders of such giants could help transform humankind to be in harmony with Mother Nature. In one particular class on the philosophy of Alice in Wonderland with Carolyn Myss, I asked specifically, “How do we pursue divine intervention in the climate crisis?” After a moment of thought she stated, “Words matter. We do not pursue divine intervention, we accept it.” It turned all my impossibilities into possibilities.

COVID-19 is not the answer to prayer. It is a wake-up call. I read recently in the Twitter-verse that the name of the book written about this time will be called, “They Died Alone”. I ponder my place in the world, my place in this in-between-time, waiting, alone. Even with my family, I am alone inside my mind. But also tethered. As I ride the back of fear, I go deeper and deeper within. I accept grace.

This is my piece of art called, "Just Add Water", from everyday objects akin to how artist Marcel Duchamp envisioned such. I created it in my 2019 summer dissertation class, my brilliant professor Melissa Pritchard led me to discover the "energy" of my thesis which is oddly "extinction can be fun". What I gathered this to mean is that I will grow beyond my present understanding to my purpose for my life and this process and my encounters will be joyful. Join me in "adding water to life" and we will discover the future together.
