Climate March in London for start of COP21 – 29/11/15

  
Today people gathered in Park Lane opposite Hyde Park for the Climate Justice and Jobs March.  We had some powerful voices representing our global society which feels threatened by climate change and lack of action. Politicians from Liberal Democrats, Labour and Green Party but none from our Conservative government who had been invited. We heard speakers from nations most affected especially Global South and in spite of the rain our spirits were lifted by standing in solidarity. It was good to see the thousands who had made the effort to be there and to see the children’s involvement too! The rain didn’t last long and the wind became strong from time to time. Much creativity went into some costumes, animal masks and banners. We enjoyed the carnival atmosphere with the drumming and the Nanas singing new and familiar anti-fracking songs!

It is time for people’s voices to be heard and our problems are all inter-related. Plans for a Citizens Summit and other events in Paris alongside #COP21 are going ahead. 

I did some livestreaming on Bambuser/HilsView #ClimateMarch includes the speakers.

Warriors and the Four Natural Enemies

Powerful words! ❤

Becoming Awareness

warriors-danceAnyone can try to become a man of knowledge; very few men actually succeed, but that is only natural. The enemies a man encounters on the path of learning to become a man of knowledge are truly formidable; most men succumb to them. – Don Juan, The Teachings of Don Juan

In The Teachings of Don Juan, don Juan discussed the four natural enemies with Castaneda. These, he explained, are fear, clarity, power, and old age. Moving through my life I have found that most warriors are able to overcome fear. They are committed to facing their fears, defying it, and eventually defeating it. In their new states of fearlessness they begin to explore new areas of awareness which brings them to a state of clarity.

Clarity, however, presents a deeper battle, one that sometimes stifles a warrior’s growth. As a warrior arrives to a state of clarity their…

Keep calm and balanced. 

  Well the media have plenty to talk about these days and who do you believe? It is shocking what is going on with killing and many are suffering. It is easy to get drawn into all the dramas and better if one doesn’t give it much energy. Mainstream outlets certainly don’t report on issues I care about and I do not like the constant repetition or brainwashing techniques used to push a certain agenda on us. So whether we use social networks online or get our ‘news’ elsewhere we have to use discernment. What’s true for one person maybe not for another. We aren’t taught to question everything that’s for sure and look beyond the story and dig a bit deeper!

So with the powers focussing on war and terrorism, it’s quite a distraction from issues of climate and the COP21 talks in Paris. We weren’t holding our breath that the corporate world would come up with solutions that would be good for our environment in any case. Now the agenda is pushing more division and fear into the global population and those that can see this are spreading love and caring for each other, the environment and all creatures that need protection.
