In the first year of school they teach us that our planet goes around the Sun. What is probably less known is that the planets in our solar system together with the Sun travel together through the infinity of space. Our planet has never been and will never be in the same place in twice. We are literally flying on a spaceship through the universe.
"The only barrier that's blocking us from living an abundant life
is our unwillingness to share" - Dr. Dragos
One late evening in my office I was studying satellite images of the Earth when I had this flash of insight about ourselves as human beings. Our planet has been traveling through space for millions of years. At a certain point in time, out of nowhere you show up on this spaceship Earth. You have everything you need here to live a beautiful, safe and abundant life. Nature regenerates the food supply every year without any special deliveries from outside our planet. The water is purified when it goes from liquid to gas to liquid, the air is cleaned in a beautiful exchange between people and forests. The magnetic field of our planet protects us from the harmful radiation coming from space and the atmosphere burns everything that will fly towards Earth (well, at least almost everything if you ask the dinosaurs).
"Nothing happens. We do it to each other" - Dr. Dragos
You read in the news about the wars that take place on the other side of the world, the exploitation and aggression in far away countries, the violence in the neighboring cities, the poverty in another town or the injustice between people in corporations. If we are to honestly embrace reality so that we can make a change, we must to accept that nothing actually happens in our world. We do it to one another.
