For generations, we’ve aspired to an ideal of ‘world peace’, yet nobody really knows what that actually means. The truth is, we don’t know what peace is. We don’t know what it would take to have or maintain it, and we most certainly aren’t willing to do what’s necessary to make it ever come close to being a reality.
The fear is palpable. Never in my short lifetime of 44 years have I seen or experienced something like this COVID-19 event, and it’s quite revealing, if not frustrating, annoying, infuriating and humbling. It will, ultimately, be a positive shift for us all.
It’s clear that as a species, we need the ideas of climate crisis, and global economic and political collapse. We need these seemingly insurmountable challenges to both unite us, and to force us to break through the patterns and paradigms that have brought us exactly and perfectly to this intensely catalytic point in modern history.
