I tried an experiment recently.
Rather than just create a blog post as a statement, I decided to post it as a question on Facebook.
What I found fascinated me! I got 28 comments and started a fun conversation.
Well – here is the original post I was going to write:
The consciousness revolution is a necessary precursor to the sustainability revolution.
Because “Problems cannot be solved by the level of awareness that created them.” (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Albert_Einstein)
The finger-wagging, guilt-trip inducing environmentalist, and the depressed and jaded deep green ecologist will not deliver the sustainability revolution. From that consciousness, their actions stimulate an equal and opposite reaction, keeping us all stuck.
Of course there is a chicken-and-egg element to consciousness and sustainability, each spurring the other.
And they are both, visibly, happening simultaneously.
But until we get the center of gravity of humanity’s consciousness to a higher level, we will not be able to get sustainability to stick.
