Dear future readers,

You must be somewhat amused to learn of this strange cult of climate change that had so many people in its grip back in the early 21st century. I post just to testify that not everyone was sucked into the craziness. By your time I imagine you have much more advanced sources of energy, maybe fusion power, maybe something else. I’m also pretty sure that your world will be just fine and won’t have succumbed to some of the doomsday scenarios the loonies of our own age predict. By the time you read this, I may well be dead, but I wish you all well for a bright future.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear child,

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 future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
