This is the season of possibility. I see a lot of possibility for Earthseed. Here’s some of the things I see on our horizon.
When we conscientiously set goals, we are engaged in an activity that has its roots in the processes that shaped galaxies from the raw material of the Big Bang and that shaped oak trees from chemical information in the nucleus of a seed. In terms of matter, “we are stardust,” but in terms of our conscious intentions, we are of the very thing that shaped stars out of the primordial nebulae — we are an intentional part of the great process of the World.
People voted for change, but it seems many did so indiscriminately. They wanted change, any change at all. And, as a result, we will all reap the whirlwind. But we are not powerless. They sowed Change, so we must Shape it.
God is not causing Climate Change. God is Climate Change. Realizing this may be the first step toward making the system-level changes which are needed to avoid ecological collapse.
The essentials are to learn to shape God with forethought, care, and work; to educate and benefit their community, their families, and themselves; and to contribute to the fulfillment of the Destiny.
