The human home requires very little, clean air, clean water, food, a roof over your head and love. That, is all we need. Each and every one of us, from the arctic to the tropics.
There are around eight billion of us, give or take a few toenails. To survive into the future we must share our home with all other creatures and be mindful of their particular needs on land and in the sea.
Life and living is a strange thing. It defies description, even for those with a religious bent. It is the only unifying element of this planet. We are all alive with the gift of life, the good, the bad, the indifferent. And life is a tapestry woven from the will of nature with all of its exquisite diversity.
The living foundation of nature is the forest. Trees are the pipeline of the planet, a master stroke of genius that maintains this gift of life going from minute to minute to day to day in the tic-toc of the sun.
All of life is one and all of life is unity in a form of singularity that nobody understands.
The planet needs repair and I call on the human family for help. I am very encouraged. Here is my right hand to hold…
I was given ancient knowledge of the world as a child and was asked to give it to you.
I have written library of books for you to read. One is about simplicity for you and your household. The others are about trees and forests. These hold new ideas in medicine and health. Then, I have taken five years to cross the world to do a film, ‘Call of the Forest,’ as an outreach program to save the global forest system. The film is screening next week in Vancouver and from there across Canada.
Just now, I have finished, ‘The Celtic Connection,’ a book of ancient wisdom and kitchen table philosophy. This book is based on the Brehon Laws of sharing the commonage of nature while respecting it. Protect one’s forests. Pick up a shovel and an acorn. Start planting more trees.
Now I give you my left hand. We are holding hands across the world, just you and me: a daisy-chain of people will get things done…. Oh yes!
