In recent years leading environmental scientists
and other advocates for ecological sustainability
have been alarmed by the impact corporate
globalism has inflicted upon the ecosphere.
It is now apparent that without a radical
transformation of the current economic system
further loss of biodiversity is inevitable.
Yet for this to take place there needs to be a
collective metanoia, an internal epiphany or a
paradigm shift of social consciousness.
Many experts agree the current modus operandi
of the global economy is self destructive and
Currently this global automaton is founded on
the incorrect premise that both human cultural
values and indigenous life forms are less than
This need not be . . .
Not only has this global corporate agenda
threatened nation-state sovereignty, but now
special interest groups have claimed the power
to control and manipulate public policy.
Historically, science has always dominated policy,
until just recently. I believe we have simply lost
place of our true priorities. As a result nothing
seems more important than racing to catch up
and save our fast-track economy.
We simply need to see the cost of remaining asleep
is far too great.
If we do not make a commitment to changing course,
We are no better than a hoard of lemurs making a
mad dash toward the end of the earth. Racing not only to
our own doom, but to the devastation of all that
Since before recorded history this green and blue
biosphere we call earth, has more than just
sustained all life. Even today after thousands of
years of exploration, we are only beginning to
understand Mother Nature’s wonderful secrets.
Yet, here we stand on the brink of total self
We seem to have forgotten this is not only our
only home, but the home of countless other
sentient beings and the myriad symbiotic
ecosystems that depend on them.
Undeniably, there is an inherent architecture
already built in to this finite network of life
systems we call home. Right now as you are
reading this, exotic healing plants, vital life
giving organisms and irreplaceable animals are
becoming extinct faster than ever before.
The balance has been broken . . .
The saddest thing is, no one knows how many
undiscovered life forms are being obliterated by
our blind ambition, ignorance and apathy.
Even the most basic elements of life reflect a
high degree of structure, function and design.
From sub-atomic particles, to atoms and
molecules, to DNA, proteins and enzymes . . .
there is, without a doubt, an underlying primal
purpose that can only be defined as pure
The truth is, it takes intelligence to recognize
intelligence and appreciate it.
Reconsider the once unbreakable food chain that
feeds the very cells of every living thing on Earth.
In truth this food chain, is an interrelated super
network of living threads, permeating every facet
and every dimension of your life and mine.
From mineral deposits created by ancient sea beds
to single celled homeostatic soil organisms, to the
food in your garden . . . every aspect of this
dynamic living planet nurtures you in ways you
can hardly imagine.
Their is a hidden code that connects the energy
of the planet to your every cell. It’s far bigger
and many times more complex than our simple
DNA. Every cell in your body communicates with
every one of your six hundred trillion cells that
you call your body, constantly.
This amazing super network of communication is
carried out by even a greater number of
molecular antennae. These molecular antennae
are part of what scientists have named your
epigenome. This is the once hidden link between
your DNA switch board, the life systems that
nurture you and the food you eat.
There is nothing that separates you from the
living world you know as your environment.
It has always been this way, and shall always be
this way. Scientists are discovering we are
undeniably inter-linked with the world in a very
real sense of the word.
The new science of epigenetics has disproved the
old dogma of genetic determinism. Your genes
are not the assumed master controller of the
miracle of life.
Evidence based science has just begun to
decipher the real master code. The final answer
is being revealed in the mystery of the
membrane of the cell.
The membrane of your cell and all life on Earth
are intimately interconnected by the basic
elements, the star dust that gives you life.
Your mind, your lifestyle and your food are the
master keys to your health and the health of our
This is an important and timely revelation that
with it comes a great freedom, an unstoppable
power and impeccable responsibility.
In other words as we allow the destruction of the
life systems on Earth, we are also permitting the
death of the cells within our bodies. To heal the
Earth and Sea is to return to the natural pathway
of healing for us all.
Next time I want to discuss why we continue to
allow big pharmaceutical, biotechnical and
agricultural chemical companies to disrupt our
planet’s critical balance? Are corporate global
special interests groups and greedy opportunists
who are only thinking of themselves justified in
manipulating the environment?
