The simple answer is YES … unequivocally YES!
The challenge is that very few people currently know that it is possible, or feel able to do anything practical about making it happen; in other words they feel ‘helpless’ to intervene.
I remember years ago listening to a seminar where a person said they were “afraid of making a commitment”, and in their particular case it was to do with a relationship.
The seminar leader responded with something like, “The fact that you have distinguished that you are afraid (or distinguished whatever) means that you are already 90% of the way to resolving or solving your particular issue.”
Wow, once I have distinguished something I have done most of the work!
Unless you have distinguished an opportunity or a problem it simply doesn’t exist (in your reality) and so nothing will or could alter.
This morning I called at a local fruit supply to buy some apples and honey, and while I was waiting for change I shared a little with the shop owner about the possibility for all humanity to live together in peace and to live a billionaire’s lifestyle within a very short number of years. Buckminster Fuller believed that this transformation of life ‘as we know it’ on our planet could happen within ten years of us all working together.
What struck me was my friends reply, that he felt we should just look after ourselves and be happy with that and be happy doing whatever we are doing.
His reply is absolutely valid and is the way I had viewed my life for many years because I didn’t know that anything else was possible, except perhaps a bigger house and a better car and more exciting holidays.
Today, that’s not the case and I am a strong supporter and a Founding Member of Your Healthy Planet.com an organisation whose mission is to provide a structure that brings health, wealth, joy and abundance to planet earth. I am clear that abundance is possible for all humanity and is achievable in my lifetime.
In the 1980’s Buckminster Fuller expressed the URGENCY for us to share that it is now possible for us to provide for everyone on planet earth at a very high standard of living. In fact he foresaw the opportunity for each of us to become one of four and a half billionaires on planet earth, that being the population of the time.
Buckminster Fuller had a close friend who independently touched many people from far and wide with his concerts, his music and the words that he wrote. Last weekend I reviewed a business course called Money & You and these words from the first verse to one of John Denver’s songs, “It’s About Time” spoke to everyone there.
There’s a full moon over India and Gandhi lives again.
Who’s to say you have to lose for someone else to win?
In the eyes of all the people, the look is much the same,
for the first is just the last one when you play a deadly game.
It’s about time we realize it, we’re all in this together.
It’s about time we find out, it’s all of us or none.
It’s about time we recognize it, these changes in the weather.
It’s about time, it’s about changes, and it’s about time.
Was Buckminster Fuller correct with his prediction of us all living the lifesyle of billionaires; or is the media, big business, our governments and the people who were retrenched right when they say “it’s touch out there, jobs are declining, business growth is slow and costs are increasing”?
How do I as an individual get some clarity and find out what is really going on? How do you distinquish what is true and what isn’t?
Bucky felt that you must do some of your own thinking … do your own inquiry and challenge what you are told. The internet makes research very easy and what you discover may not always be accurate, so listen to your intuition too.
The two major influences on our lives today are our accelerating rate of change, meaning we have more and more new discoveries (e.g. an artificial heart that may be in clinical testing within 2 years) PLUS the growing interconnectedness or networking of people all around the world.
Not all of these ‘new’ discoveries benefit all mankind. If one lives in fear then they must invest time and resources to protect themselves and to deal with the real or perceived fear. Today we spend almost three times as much money on weapons and security as we do on providing a decent standard of living for everyone.
Today an idea can be ‘flashed’ around the globe in a matter of seconds, whereas one hundred years ago it would have taken months, and been fraught with danger. People are learning quickly, more quickly than ever before. As Bucky had also said “You cannot learn less, you can only learn more.”
Our knowledge and our resources continue to increase at a faster and faster rate.
We are “smarter”, better prepared (than ever before), we produce much more food than we need, some two to three times the amount of food necessary to feed everyone, and yet 17,000 people a day die of hunger, everyday!
How can we let that be?
We appear to have a water and energy shortage, or crisis’, but when I did my research I quickly found it was a crisis of ignorance and in fact there is no shortage of water or energy.
Organizations such as GENI and the Permaculture Research Institute just to name two, have been helping educate and implement solutions in needed areas for decades now. Today you can access their information immediately via the internet.
You can also get a summary of important information from Your Healthy Planet.com a new and exciting project of the Sustainable Children’s Fund. Membership is free and you can also participate as a Founding Advertising Member if you like to advertise your product or service.
I am becoming more and more aware and present to the wonder of creation and am in no doubt whatsoever that the future of humanity is in good hands.
We have more learning experiences to deal with I imagine, but the future that I see is very very bright. Ask yourself, “What is the future that I am helping create?” If you haven’t given it a lot of thought yet then I invite you to become a Billionaire For World Peace today!
