Discovery & Awareness
DISCOVERY! DISCOVERY! DISCOVERY!
AWARENESS! AWARENESS! AWARENESS!
These 2 words have been in my consciousness lately! Listening to the news and documentaries, most of the time people, scientist, doctors, ...etc. talk about discovering. Can it be that we have now realized that everything we need is there? Is the cure for cancer not so much in finding something that is not there but in realizing that all the pollution, pesticides, insecticides, preservatives, fertilizers, nuclear spills, etc. is the cause of cancer? Could it be that we need to be aware that a healthy way of life is the cure for cancer and other diseases? Maybe our pursuit for money has blinded from the negative effects of what we perceive as development!
When I read the book: The Transformation of Desire by Diarmid O'Murchu I realized that the sensible way of life is just about considered a utopia because it makes so much sense. Yet it will require such a shift in our way of thinking.
So, as Anthony De Mello used to say to those who would ask him what was the most important attitude to have he would always answer: AWARENESS, AWARENESS, AWARENESS.
Could that attitude save our planet? I think so. What do you think?
