Severn’s plea couldn’t be heeded

Severn Suzuki was 12 when she spoke at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992.

She gave a beautiful speech, a moving plea for adults to change their ways and start caring.

Watch UN delegates listening to her:

Since 1992, adults did not change their ways and damage to the environment got much worse.

Dominant elites do not care. Their attention is on the debt mountain.

But they don’t have a clue on what to do about debts, or about the environment, or poverty, health, war, or anything else.

Ultimately, it is not their fault. In their mode of thinking and belief system there are no solutions to any of the problems facing mankind.

Once you recognise and accept this, you are on the starting line for paradigm change.

You can start paying attention to the inner voice of your eternal consciousness. You can begin to watch life around you as an experience. You can start shedding hatred, judgments and fear.

You can start experimenting with love and observe how your relationships with others improve. You can notice how events become more fluid, how energy flows and how your navigation through life becomes easier.

And the new paradigm will work for society as well as for individuals. It’s a question of critical mass.

But collectively we are not quite there yet. The old system of thought with its fears, egos, competition and violence still has to clear away.

Don’t worry, it will, and you are already contributing to its replacement by higher consciousness.

Fear not, admire the clouds.
