Climate change hits home, in a big way. It changes the earth, and it changes the human atmosphere: the choice between service-to-self and service-to-others becomes a minute by minute imperative. Some succumb to the former:
This isn’t just the perception of “scarcity,” as set up by the illusory fiat “money” system that rules us; this, folks, is real scarcity, as only our planet’s elemental fire/earth/air/water biosystem can deliver.

Now that climate change is affecting millions of people in a very big way, we have one good reason to meditate on Death, because when we let go of that fear, we move into unknown mental, emotional, and spiritual territory, a charged, transformed atmosphere that we will need to inhabit as we struggle through these perilous times.
