The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

Dear child,

You will be 37 now. I hope I’m still around for you. If I am, I will be 64. I hope the world has learned to take it easy. It’s doing everything but that as I write this. You know all about it. The take make waste nonsense. There seems to be no end to the madness of it all. I hope the world has learned how to ‘do nothing’. If I say this now people will think I’m being lazy. They will think I want the government to give me stuff for free. I hope the world has moved on from all that. You know you don’t need anything to be happy. To be fulfilled. I always knew you would make it. And because I knew that, I knew that the world would make it too. I hope you are happy and well. I hope all your friends are happy and well. How is your little brother? He will be 34. These days he is hard to control. I hope he is a bit more tame but not too much. He loves you more than anything else in the world. He kisses you to sleep every night. You kick him all night long and take the blanket from him. He cuddles up next to you. My eyes are welling up. I love you so much. You make the world more beautiful by being in it. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. And don’t give in to the temptations of mediocrity just so you can fit in. You have always fit in. Since the day you were born. I would know. I was there. Your mother put you on her breasts and you drew first milk with your eyes closed. You were a natural. You were amazing at everything you wanted to do. You loved people for who they were. You cried for people’s pain. You laughed with them. The world just went and got a little lost and you did all you could to stay sane. Stay beautiful. Stay human. Yes we humans have had it rough in the past. Killing off our cousin species and most of the animals. But you knew there was more to being human than the sum total of the past. You were and still are the beginning of beginnings. The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.
