Synergy and Unity of Purpose

The production of biochar as both a spiritual and practical activity by indigenous peoples of the Americas reflected a balanced synergistic relationship between humans and the environment. That unity of purpose and the resulting positive results were upended by the invasion of European settlers, who brought destructive, short-sighted patterns of development with them. It continues today, with the destruction of the rainforests in South America, as well as extractive practices elsewhere, creating an unsustainable and destructive hologram of its own.

As with any hologram, it changes as action changes. We may currently be in a situation that appears bleak globally regarding climate change and, indeed, unless human behavior changes, it is likely to worsen. But as we change our behavior, the situation changes, as well. In his outstanding book, Eaarth, Bill McKibben may have the facts on his side that it may be too late to return to the seasons and biologic milieu we once took for granted, that the carbon parts per billion in the atmosphere may be writing our future reality right now.

But that does not mean that collective action is for naught, or that individual action is meaningless. Indeed, as every great leader since well before Mahatma Gandhi has known, individuals have the power of choice on their side; a power that cannot be stopped by any institution, no matter how supposedly powerful or authoritative. As Jesus said, faith the size of a mustard seed can indeed move mountains. The power of human faith and action guided by Spirit can be transformative. Realities are nothing but interchangeable choices to immortal spiritual beings; even, and especially, in human bodies; in an infinite universe. Recognizing and employing spiritual power is the key to change.
