I write. Not published, but I write, and as much as I would like to write a book and get it published, I have some serious doubts about whether I will ever get around to it. And I think, writing a book, it’s a one-way communication, not necessarily a bad thing, but I like dialogue, so I hope to develop a dialogue here on this blog.
I think this is a fascinating time to be alive. We live in a time on this planet which will determine the future of humanity. Of course this has always been true, but now there is an urgency, and we are seeing the consequences of our actions in “real time”.
Stop, Reflect, & Listen . . . The name on the header. Very important. Many dimensions to it, so I will do my utmost to make my readers Stop, Reflect, & Listen . . . and observe the world around us, we are all together on this fragile planet which is our home. Let’s take care of it, and ourselves, we are after all an integral part of this biological system, interacting with all other parts, and responsible for the reality we create.
And it seems that we aren’t doing a very good job.
What is a Resilient Humanity? This is a theme and one which will develop over time. It is borne of my strong feelings about our society, human beings, and our environment, the nature and landscapes in which we live and are an integral part of. And there is cause for concern; things are looking exceedingly darker, thrusting us into situations where we must make choices on how we want to live. This process of awareness is ongoing, and choosing not to make choices is also a choice, and something we are also responsible for. So what are the choices we have? I think it begins with asking some basic questions:
Where am I now? Where do I want to be? and, How do I get there? I hope you join me in exploring these questions, and sharing your answers.
It should perhaps also be noted here that I live in Stockholm, Sweden, where my wife Kathrin and I run Open World Café, an organic lunch café and gallery, where we regularly organize events and activities around the subjects of sustainability and leadership, healthy food with the goal of stimulating the senses to promote sustainable change.
