Let's imagine...

Imagine all the people living life in peace…
I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one.

John Lennon

As we come to the close of 2016, a year of many challenges, changes and upheavals, some of us are challenged by how life is playing out here on Earth.

With the more frequent, extreme weather events causing loss of life and damage to the natural environment and to man-made infrastructure, we are reminded that our ecosystem is fragile and balance is threatened.

War and armed conflict, fear and fear mongering are ever present in life on Earth. (If not in our lives and in our backyards, then in our living rooms, on TV.)

A lack of hope and feelings of powerlessness are being expressed at the ballot box in democracies, with results that reflect discontent with the way things are. Surely the underlying foundation of life on Earth, the principle that is at the core of the Earth Trust ‘the interconnectedness of all life’ can help to inspire and inform our way forward...

For some, the ‘web of life’ is the language that expresses this fundamental principle of life.

‘a profound change of perception and thinking is needed if we are to survive’

The Web of Life
Fritjof Capra 1995

As we contemplate the dawn of a new year, this worldview, where we all live, feel and think of ourselves as being a part of the Earth and all of life being related, may help us create a more respectful, sustainable and peaceful world.

Scientific Guidance aligns with Ancient Wisdom

A few words of inspiration from an acclaimed scientist!

“Look deep into nature and there you will understand everything better.”

                          Albert Einstein

Is this not how the Custodial peoples on this Earth lived and learned and gained their wisdom?

Good News Story

The Earth Trust is currently offering support for a pilot program where investors can join with custodial people to grow a business while caring for their country, and handing on custodial ways of working with land and native plants.

The Aboriginal community, the investors and those interested in the wider world can all benefit, while protecting, respecting and caring for the natural environment. Remnant rainforest will be preserved while reforesting where rainforest once was… It is an innovative venture and is being developed in partnership with the Gumbaynggirr people and Galnyamba Ventures.

There will be more of this story to share as it unfolds.
