Getting Ready to LEAP: Summer 2018

The manuscript for LEAP: The Case for The Country of Earth was completed in January 2018. Since then Markus has been working with an editor to prepare it for publication. This process is presently due to be completed in early Fall 2018.

LEAP will be published on Earth Day, April 22, 2019.

Review copies of LEAP will be available for anyone to review beginning in late Fall 2018. Details on this program will be announced in the coming months.

Lynne Twist: It’s About We

The experience of we, is also the experience of oneness. Our society, our culture is rooted in separation rather than oneness. And that is the heart of our environmental crisis, our inequality crisis, our injustice, our sense of violence. Collaboration is the source of prosperity, it’s the source of the future, it’s the source of everything we value. It’s the source of resolving every single issue on this planet.

The Practical Wisdom of Thomas Jefferson

I’ve been reading some of Thomas Jefferson, and came across this.
~ Markus

The Practical Wisdom of Thomas Jefferson
aka A Decalogue of Canons for Observation in Practical Life” (original title)

  1. Never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day.
  2. Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
  3. Never spend your money before you have it.
  4. Never buy what you do not want, because it is cheap; it will be dear to you.
  5. Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
  6. We never repent of having eaten too little.
  7. Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
  8. How much pain have cost us the evils which have never happened.
  9. Take things always by their smooth handle.
  10. When angry, count ten, before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.

I found that, given the way the people of that time spoke and wrote, it takes a bit of time to ponder each one, to have it sink in. But its all very good advice.

No wonder the guy was the one who was asked to write the Declaration of Independence.

More quotes by him, and other information about Thomas Jefferson and his life, can be found at monticello.org.

The Soil Story

The Soil Story is an important place to begin to understand both the nature of the global mega-crisis we face, as well as how we as individuals — working together on all levels — are the solution. The video is short, just under 4 minutes, and entirely worth your time:
