About the ability to sustain life

Many people who work with sustainability stuff receive loads of money for their projects and the result is often null. It is unbelievable to witness what a waste of time and resources…

Sustain-ability…Isn´t this about the ability to sustain life?… What can politicians sustain when they often know nothing about life?… What are they/we capable of sustaining other than greedy shortsightedness, self-delusion and empty rhetoric?…

How can they/we ever find stringent solutions when we never listen, failing to take the pulse of immediate reality?

A very good answer for this comes from sprinklinthoughts.wordpress.com:

” Listen… Listen to what is around you – to your heart, your soul, and your own mind. Slow down and catch up to your real self.”

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. Before we can make any real progress toward true sustainability, we must face the fact the we cannot possibly continue living like we do… things must change – and they will. They are changing right now.
    Politicians… are all about sustaining themselves (kind of OK as we all want to live, but not OK if at the expense of their constituents and our landbase) and then sustaining the system that supports their greed. But I find it more and more difficult to fault the person as this is all a semi-natural result of any large system… the system gets so big that eventually it becomes a type of all encompassing organism which has only one goal – growth. Unfortunately, in this case, that growth is more like a cancer or parasite.
    Thank you for the link & plug.

    Well, they will change depending on our readiness to confront this truth if we reach a critical mass of consciousness.

    The house is burning, and many stubbornly refuse to admit: “Oh, don´t be so obnoxious, it is not so bad, don´t exagerate…” and continue watching American Idol or God knows what…
