A graphical array of what we all love

The Big Picture perspective changes everything. Our commonality is found in Nature’s fundamental principle that everything is connected; we are each a whole and part of a larger whole that sustains all Life. We are one human community that will survive and thrive together as brothers, or none of us will.

The Big Picture Changes Everything!

  1. Under the Big Picture, a narrow selfish perspective is increasingly detrimental to the well-being and longevity of all life on the planet.

  2. As millions awaken from their own limited view to seeing everything from a larger perspective, “The Shift Movement” rises in numbers and passion. The deeply embedded drive to survive and thrive is aroused and activated.

THE BIG PICTURE - EARTH SPEAKING

The Big Picture is our interconnectedness with all things and each other. No matter what your creation story is, we are One people, One family, and One Earth–our only home. For the continuance of all Life, this is what Earth might tell us if it could speak your language:

“Listen up...This is Earth speaking

  1.    I am a living, breathing organism functioning to support all life, including
         you.

  2.    You do not have dominion over me. I am the Big Picture you must take into
         account in all your decisions.

  3.    You are One family on this planet—all part of me. What you do to me, you
         do to yourselves.

  4.    You can no longer fail to get along. Either you are all going to survive and
         thrive together as brothers, or you will all die together as fools.

  5.    You foolishly fight futile, wasteful, and destructive wars that drain your
         ability to focus on and care for the whole and each other.

  6.    You ignore me and let the four beasts of Ego, Envy, Avarice and Ambition
         dominate your thinking and behavior—to your own peril as a species.

  7.    You must either align yourselves with my universal and non-negotiable laws
         or suffer unbearable catastrophic consequences.

  8.    You cannot continue to grow in numbers and expect I will always be able to
         support you. You are stressing out my ability to carry you much longer.

  9.   You cannot continue to recklessly extract my resources and expect they will
        last forever.

  10.    You cannot continue to produce long-lasting toxic chemicals and expect
         not to suffer.

  11.    You cannot continue to undermine the diversity and regenerative capacities
         of my ecosystems and expect you will be spared.

  12.    You cannot continue the inequitable distribution of resources and expect
         your human needs will be met.

  13.    One last reminder: I am the only home for all of you. You have no other
         home to which you can escape. Forget Mars. Get this your only home
         in order and you will all be blessed.

How large is the Universe anyway? How many galaxies? How many suns? How much Life is out there?

The “Law of One” is the original law of creation—the supreme law over all laws in all dimensions. “We are all ONE.” All related. All beings exist intrinsically within and of the One-Source. It is love-based, and belongs to everyone of every creed.

“He who experiences the unity of all Life sees his/her own Self in all beings, and all beings in his/her own Self.” Buddha

A BIG PICTURE PERSPECTIVE

EVERY PERSON HAS THE CAPABILITY OF MAKING THE DIFFERENCE NEEDED.

No one is perfect. No one has all the answers. But we are going to need each other more than at any time in humanity’s long history. So we need to talk. Every voice and action is important. We not only need to be more responsible personally, we need to influence policy-makers, legislators, and businesses to re-evaluate priorities in alignment with our long term survival and welfare. We shape our systems, and those same systems have shaped us.

Here are five Life conditions needing to be addressed by EVERYONE no matter what religion, economic status, political stance, location, race or job. Each one effects every person on the planet, and could determine our survival chances.

  1. 1.We must learn how to live without fossil fuels, for they WILL run out shortly.                                    • Peak oil

  2. 2.We must learn how to live sustainably before Earth no longer can support life..                  • Sustainability

  3. 3.We must preserve quality of life, i.e. reduce pollution, toxicity and undernourishment.     • Quality of Life

  4. 4.We must abolish wars, (the great DETRACTOR from what we urgently need to accomplish.)      • Ending Wars

  5. 5.We must learn how to serve the larger, sustaining whole, as well as ourselves                           • Taming the ego 


Paul Hawkin describes the shift this way:

An awakening, a rising, a revolution, a movement is growing and spreading silently across the world. It has no center, no leader and no central ideology. This is a civil rights movement, a human rights movement, an environmental movement, a democracy movement. A movement of movements – it is the coming world…This movement doesn’t seek power. It seeks to decentralize power. It is conducive to life. It is humanity’s immune response to heal political disease, economic infection and ecological corruption...This Blessed Unrest is in us all.”     (watch)~Paul Hawken, Blessed Unrest
