OUR PLANET IS ALREADY OPERATING TO THRIVE IN ONE WAY AND YET HOLDING ITSELF BACK IN ANOTHER WAY.
WE JUST NEED TO BE AWARE OF WHAT I WOULD ARGUE TO BE THE TRUE STRUCTURE OF OUR PLANET - IT'S DESIRE TO BE A PLANETARY PARADISE - AS WELL AS OUR WILD NATURES AND THEN WE COULD BE ENABLING A FULLY THRIVING PLANET...
Our planet is already being honest with itself and endeavouring to thrive in that we are all born - every species - to ‘want for ourselves/love ourselves’. The only reason that us humans are unaware of our true 'wildly perfect' natures and so are battling with our very own natures (subsequently inhibiting the full thriving of our planet) is because we have got too zoned in on the intricacies of our planet and have got ‘lost amongst the trees’ instead of being able to see the big picture of how our planet wants to thrive as a planetary community of infinite, wild & perfect 'planetary creatures'...
There are some facts that are apparent for ALL of us to see, we just need to be aware of them...
1... [IN OUR ‘PERSONAL’ LIVES] We are all born wanting for ourselves/loving ourselves (our true primal nature and purpose) but we have these falsehoods that we humans - as a society - have told ourselves and so a lot of our existences are a self created battle between our primal ‘wanting for ourselves', to ‘be’ to our maximum and all of the dishonest ideas that we have about ourselves that we inflict on ourselves, to hold ourselves back. [This is obviously a big statement to make but I think that I can prove this to absolutely be the case by examining our 'wild natures' in my E-Handbook, 'Our Planet - A Love Story'.]
2... [IN WHAT WE HAVE CALLED OUR ‘PROFESSIONAL’ LIVES] We humans have a way of living that revolves around giving/taking from one another. We have created ‘money’ as a way to give and take easily between one another. We offer ‘services’ and ‘products’ to enable one another to thrive. And it is this last fact - that we ALL live by offering one another ‘services’ and ‘products’ to enable one another to thrive - that a lot of us are blind to.
In our conversations, we talk about ‘greedy corporations’ or ‘planet loving not for profits’ but all of these labels are real ONLY to the person making them up in their head, when they think about a certain organisation.
What EVERY organisation has in common is that it is set up TO SERVE. Each business is just going about it in a different way AND the only different ways available are: A. They are operating in full awareness of our planetary structure and recognising that we are all wild, perfect creatures or... B. They are NOT operating in full awareness of our planetary structure and recognising that we are all wild, perfect creatures.
Every single business has been launched to provide an opportunity for SOMEONE to thrive in SOME WAY. We have channelled our own primal drive to ‘be to our maximum’ by developing a way of living where we are all offering one another ‘ways to thrive.'
Between A and B there is just a sliding scale of what impact we have. For example, some businesses trigger the poisoning of water for miles around and subsequently kill 1000000s of creatures who relied on that water source, by drilling for planetary ‘power sources’.
Another business might grow and sell flowers. Another business might run wild swimming events and another business - what we might call a ‘charity’ - might run a sanctuary for animals. Etc Etc.
Each of these businesses/charities (which in essence are ALL just organisations offering different services) have 2 things in common: they are ‘serving’ our planet in some form - and seeking to fulfil their own ‘wanting for themselves/loving themselves’ in the process - AND they are all on a sliding scale of how much they enabling every part of our planet to love itself and to thrive.
In the 'Our Planet - A Love Story' E-Handbook I reflect further on how (in our personal lives and then what we have called ‘our professional lives’) we can be aware of our actual planetary structure as a 'planetary paradise' and our own wild, perfect natures and what it looks like to honestly all thrive together: enabling a planetary love story, in EVERY aspect of our lives (personal and professional).
In the ways that we are unaware/being dishonest with ourselves about the reality we exist within, we are holding ourselves back from relishing and unleashing all that we might be capable of (as we have not recognised that we are wild, perfect, power ITSELF and that we are set up to live such incredible lives).
