The Third Metric

I have been following what Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post has been talking about with her Third Metric. I think that she is really on to something, a change that has to happen in the 21st century if we are to prosper as a species. We have to redefine, and I think we are, our relationship with ourselves, our families, our work and more.

She writes a nice little article here. Enjoy.

Farmageddon


Watched Farmegeddon The Movie today. I highly recommend this to everyone in the USA.

http://farmageddonmovie.com/

It is a little over an hour long. I saw it on Netflix.The movie tells the story of small, family farmers providing safe, healthy foods to their communities who were forced to stop, often through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies. The movie succinctly poses and addresses the question "why is this happening in 21st century America?"

Evoking both sympathy and anger for those farmers violently shut down by overzealous government policy and regulators, Farmageddon stresses the urgency of food freedom. Though the film deals with intense scenes and dramatic situations, the overall tone is optimistic, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals' rights to access food of their choice and farmers' rights to produce these foods.

Reading list of Books for Sustaining Humanity

I believe that the 21st century will be pivotal for the human race. If we do not move from competition to cooperation across the globe and take better care of this planet, this lovely floating rock in space, then the planet will not take care of us. Mother nature has her way of dealing with these situations and they tend to happen very quickly.

I have come across a couple of reading lists that will help.

Brian Eno's Reading list: 20 essential books for sustaining humanity

The Journey is greater than the Inn

There are no wrong roads taken to anywhere; there are no accidents. As we go along there are course corrections that we can make, and every experience that we have in our life is there to teach us something...”Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
