Our times’ mind-heart disconnect has greatly affected our lives and, via a ripple effect, the rest of existence. We are a holographic reflection of our planet, and our mother, Earth, is crying. The Earth’s axis has shifted and this has created severe changes in global weather, as well as in seismic and volcanic activity. Our mother is suffering: rainforests are being chopped down for quick profits, pesticides are being used on crops, polluting water and our bodies, armies of cars are filling the air with megatons of soot, and islands of plastic garbage are floating in the Pacific Ocean. The health of our environment is taking a heavy toll and will not sustain human life forever. When recently the Earth shook and gigantic sea waves arose in Japan, killing thousands and destroying everything in their wake, the world woke up to realize a fundamental truth: regardless of its growth, and the forward march of what we call civilization, humanity stands powerless before Nature’s fury. In our quest for progress, we have shown only disregard for the environment and life on this planet, ever believing ourselves superior—an entity apart from Nature. In our game of outsmarting the natural laws, we have given birth to myriad ecological disasters. A survivor from Sendai wrote recently:
…Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at this moment. And somehow, as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide.”
No human being can stand apart from the environment because each of us is a part of Nature, a divine reflection of the Universe. We live in a holographic universe—we are a projection of our environment just as it is a reflection of us. In our universe there are no limitations on the extent to which we can alter the quilt of reality. Our perception of reality is the tabula rasa for us to draw upon. Everything in reality would then have to be seen as a metaphor, for even the most accidental events are an expression of some fundamental symmetry. By discovering the unity that is basic to all things in the cosmos, we understand that the change begins with us.
“The Universe is worked and guided from within outwards.” H. P. Blavatsky
