Just For This Moment
We could sit here all day
talking about how the news man is always lying
or how both parties are functionally the same
or how the Bastards toil endlessly to hide the truth from us
or how we know better than all those foolish brainwashed sheep
who are just trying to survive another day on this earth.

We could sit here all day doing that.

just for this one moment,
we could look inward
and be honest with ourselves.

ivica, you haven't responded to my statements (supremacy, other lifeforms, 'script').

I did my best in #279, but, nanning, your perception and interpretation of it differs, i see no need to continue, take care. :)

nanning, boring as repetition is but we have to refresh memory sometime:  Arctic Café 2019-09-18 UNCCD COP14.

Planet is here to support us, this is a platform upon which we live and this platform has to be ideal for life.
When I say life - all life, you cannot make it in such a way that this works only for human beings not others.
Every creature has to live, they are far more important for maintaining the balance in this planet than human beings,
Without human beings the planet will do very well, so all life here has a life of its own, they are not here to serve us.

These are the things that need to get across to the humanity. Thank you very much.

“A Blessing For Anyone”

Amazing New Song By Michael Brunnock Based On A Poem By Caitlin Johnstone

We need to seize the means of creating culture, take it out of the hands of the social engineers who have us all stanning for billionaires at the expense of the planet, and start making beautiful, inspiring, healthy memes to feed our hearts and souls with. This is one such effort to do so.

We have to protect whales from us so that whales can help diversity and sustainability of life, our lives included!

The Sea Shepherds Protecting Humpbacks From Whaling! | The Blue Realm | Real Wild Documentary, Published Feb 7, 2019

"Humpback whales were hunted to the brink of extinction until a moratorium was implemented in the 1980s. After finally rebounding in numbers, whaling nations are exploring ways to re-open the hunt. In Antarctica, Japan is targeting minke, fin and now...humpbacks. We explore how The Sea Shepherd Society is protecting Humpbacks from these attacks!"

Re: ´scientific´ japanese harpoons
...this year is historical, it is the first one where there will be no whaling in international waters. This has been a longtime mission of ours, as some people know, the Japanese fleet has retreated from the Southern ocean.
"Captain Paul Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, has lived an adventurous life. He’s been shot at, imprisoned, and threatened more times than he can remember. For what? For having the audacity to believe that maybe, just maybe, whales have rights and should not be eradicated from this planet for human benefit. His war with those who believe otherwise has spanned over four decades, and, in his words, he’s far from done."

Just an idea to consider or not, i watched almost none of it:

"It is widely recognized that GDP alone is an inadequate measure of a nation’s progress. Human capital, well-being, innovation, resilience and agility alongside GDP are critical measures of economic and social progress. What can government, business and civil society leaders do to better capture the less-tangible factors of inclusive growth?"

Wave of Bliss

The minds runs on  In search of happiness  Without understanding the nature of life
Your desire is just a small fish  But it grows into a whale  And even after catching the whale  You still want another small fish
The waves are only on the surface of the sea
Deep inside, the fish are free

Marriage of Economy and Ecology

A really big issue.

"A recognition of the contribution whales make could be a valuable alternative to costly and untested proposed technological solutions, such as capturing carbon directly from the air and burying it deep underground."

"Wherever whales, the largest living things on earth, are found, so are populations of some of the smallest, phytoplankton. These microscopic creatures not only contribute at least 50 percent of all oxygen to our atmosphere, they do so by capturing about 37 billion metric tons of CO2, an estimated 40 percent of all CO2 produced. To put things in perspective..."

"Exactly how much should we be willing to spend on protecting the whales? We estimate that, if whales were allowed to return to their pre-whaling numbers—capturing 1.7 billion tons of CO2 annually—it would be worth about $13 per person a year to subsidize these whales’ CO2 sequestration efforts."

Why people should be involved?

...   No policy is going to work, unless people cooperate and make it happen
...   the largest wealth we have is our population
...   Wether we will harness this population to become a solution, or we will leave it unharnessed and become a major problem, is in our hands.
...   So educating the population, getting the population inspired and involved is the only solution in the world. Really.

Hi nanning,
"do your thoughts own you or do you own your thoughts" is a question not a sign of anything.
Let me use other words:
one makes (an unpleasant...) thought and then fights that thought (in order to retain control or whatever nonsense), how come?
(Isn't that like the right hand bites you and the left hand fights the right one to protect you?)
Why to produce such thought in the first place? We must learn to use them consciously.

(recall a life risking situation - say while driving a car:
one acts fast and avoid disaster, thoughts were shut off at that event because they are too slow and of no use - or more 'poeticaly': thoughts betrays hidding like a coward, coming later to give a comentary.)

Cooperation with UNCCD goes on,
Sadhguru and Ibrahim Thiaw (UN Under-Secretary-General and UNCCD Executive Secretary) are speaking about the future of land and our role in it:

... in all the 16 states that I went to every chief minister and every politician of some substance participated in the event
... prime minister received the document
... within the 24 hours they formed committee to look at it
... within 2.5 to 3 months it became official recommended policy for all the 28 states

... this happened only because there were 162 million people backing the whole movement
... people have to express what is it they want ...

Some excerpts from "How to Be Part of the Solution?" video given previously:

   ...slowly we turned the mindset around in the last 3 years... that is not necessary to have a billion dollar research and everything, it is simply by observing nature we can replicate the same things effortlessly, so this turnaround of mindset is the biggest achievement of Rally For Rivers.

   ...we (isha-outreach) got acredition from UNCCD.

   ...I thought the government will be the biggest challenge... but we crossed that threshold took almost 2 years of relentless pursuit.

   ...Cauvery is very important because it is demonstratable model for the rest of the tropical world...
