The Heroic Journey That Returns Alt-Right Extremist Thinking to the Margins

The world as seen by Alt-Right views depletes the life that the OneEarth worldview describes. So many rightwing, dehumanizing views have come through the media coverage of the 2016 election and its results, that OneEarth people could become exhausted in critique. So, here’s a suggestion: practice being a 20-80 person. That’s 20% energy and time in critique and 80% energy and time acting toward and speaking for OneEarth living. Since it’s easier to speak about what’s bad than what’s good, does the following help with the 80%? It comes at the start of the last chapter in my next book, From Egos to Eden, where I describe arriving at the conclusion of a heroic journey—the heroic journey to keep Earth livable. Is this heroic journey not even more important for us in a Trump presidency and in an era when Alt-Right extremism is crowned as a point of view to be considered alongside other points of view rather than treated as thinking that belongs on the margins of human choice?

The Haudenosaune People Impart a Saving Message

On this eve of Thanksgiving Day, 2016, thinking of where we are ecologically with our country and planet, I want to read again the words of the Haudenosaune people delivered to the United Nations in 1977. Given that the history of Thanksgiving is for Native Americans one of betrayal and bloodshed, I wish to hear them say what they bring to current efforts of all who work to keep Earth livable. The following is excerpted from my forthcoming book (available February 14, 2017), “From Egos to Eden.” In 1977, at the United Nations Conference on Indigenous Peoples, the Haudenosaune presented “A Basic Call to Consciousness, the Hau de no sau nee Address to the Western World.”

Is Regaining the Power of the Eden Story Important for Today?

Jeff EdwardsSome time ago I asked Jeff Edwards, a friend from days past whom I’d not been in touch with for awhile, whether he’d be willing to take a look at my book manuscript and comment on it. The book, From Egos to Eden (available February 6, 2017), opens with a chapter on the Eden story. But then goes on to talk about the civilizational and ecological crises we are in as a summons to a “heroic journey,” the name for an overall story structure popularized by myth-master, Joseph Campbell (See his Hero with a Thousand Faces, 1949). The subtitle is Our Heroic Journey to Keep Earth Livable. I am both surprised and pleased that Jeff focused his remarks on Eden.

Words that Describe This OneEarth Website! Which Do You Use?

How can a person who does not know about this website find it? Or let me say it another way, if you were looking for a website(s) on the topics covered here on “The OneEarth Project,” what words and phrases would you type in, hoping the mysterious search engines would get to a site where you’d go, “Wow! Just what I was looking for!” I want your help. Send me an email, lee@jubilee-economics.org, with your suggestions.

Words I’ve thought of follow. But some of them, though accurate, name emerging thinking. I like the words, but if they don’t help people find us online, then other words need to be used.

How Eden Is a Name for the Archetype of "The Garden" and Energizes Earth-size Living

Consider for a moment that the largest topography of consciousness that we humans can move into is named Spiritual Consciousness. In Spiritual Consciousness symbols and myths renew what we make conscious in daily life in this topography. The primal image of a verdant Garden that lives within all of us archetypally is especially important to our Call to keep Earth livable. The Garden is an evolved, healthy ecosphere, local and planetary, which we aspire to and which Earth appears bent on evolving. In the consciousness of MultiEarth civilization, the Garden lives mostly in the underworld because egos and civilization have judged it too utopian to be practical.

Was Eden Ever an Ecologically Balanced Historical Place?

Eden is not a utopia lost. It is not a Garden of magical thinking or innocence. It is an evolved, healthy ecosphere that is alive in our conscious mind, and lives even more strongly in the regions of our unconscious. It exists mythologically to guide and shape OneEarth living. In various forms, it may exist biologically and ecologically. Earth appears intentionally bent on evolving it. We can inhabit it, but only if we have conversations with ourselves and others that frighten the bejesus out of our egos.

I'm Hoping You'll Help Distribute My Next Book (Here's What It's About)

Here’s what I’m hoping for: that you will help improve the distribution of the book I’ve been working on the past couple of years. Below I give you a description of it—From Egos to Eden: Our Heroic Journey to Keep Earth Livable. Finally, I’ve finished the manuscript of the book. It’s been edited. I’ve made changes. Lots of them. It’s been formatted and I’ve read through it looking for changes needed in the format. And off it goes to Ingramspark who will print two review copies. Then I will go through it yet again. David Wogahn will go through it too. His company, Authorimprints (just up the road in Carlsbad, California) does the work of formatting my manuscript, getting it publish-ready. He’s good, fair, and personable. A really fine colleague to an author who’s made the choice to publish independent from publishing houses (though he can help with that too).
