How to save the world in 6 days
The phrase "how to save the world in 6 days" came to me about three years ago. It comes from the Ancient Myth of the world being created in 6 days. Today, we're kind of on the other side of that with this "Rite of Passage" that Humanity is currently undergoing.
So I wondered: If we COULD save the WORLD in 6 days, where would we start?
1) Well, for one thing, maybe 6 days is a metaphor for 6 generations and it's not so crazy.
2) So, what are some of the key, deep, tangled, root-ball issues we should really begin to notice?
When we notice that so much of what we identify as "problems" are actually just symptoms, can we trace back to 6 (or so) key tangles that are at the ROOT of things? and if so, what might those be?
A Fundamental worldview shift.
As Henry FORD said, (he's he guy who invented the cars), "Those are the BEST reasons I've ever heard about why this can't be done. Great work!"
He was speaking to a group of engineers he had hired to build the engine for his horseless carriage.
"Now, I'm going to pay you again for another week of work. Let's call it 6 days. :) Now that we know all the BEST reasons it can't be done. Like, really, guys, I can't argue with these reasons. You're right. It absolutely cannot be done those ways. Now, go give me equally good reasons for how it can be done."
I am currently driving a Civic Hybrid, 2008. The HORSELESS CARRIAGE wasn't built in 6 days. But the seed of it took root.
What can't we do in 6 generations if we put our minds to it?
Maybe, just maybe, we can help heal mother earth of all her suffering.
