Without question, all things are interconnected. As John Muir, the first elected president of the Sierra Club, explained:
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
In other words, we are all interdendent on everything else. My paraphrase of what Jane Benyus of Biomimicry Institute demonstrates, a life well lived is one that makes life more livable. In other words, we live a life that make it better for everyone and everything. More about Jane Benyus’s work and Biomimicry is available at this post: Parallel NOT Linear Means Create Positive AND Prevent Negative
This week Ocean Robbins of the Food Revolution Network promoted FREE access to a movie, “The Need to GROW“. This movie demonstrates and emphasizes these interconnection attributes of life on earth and and how they can be used to make life better for all.
The movie demonstrates multiple ways to improve our life that also will diminish problems. To me, it is important to understand, these actions will make our life better today and also make a better tomorrow more likely.
Know that these benefits are not deferred, they are immediate. We feel better right away, we become part of the solution and not part of the problem. It is an emotionally powerful way to practice paneugenesis.
Here is the trailer.
To practice paneugenesis is to generate comprehensive improvements to creating pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic interactions so everyone and everything benefits. Why would we do anything else?
I look forward to hearing how you incorporate these ideas into your life and the related benefits you experience.
