Specializing in Designs for Conference Calls, Zoom Backgrounds, and Social Calling, with a focus on Peace, Harmony, Unity, Endangered Species, and Environmental concerns!
Hi there, I am interested in and working for world peace and for environmental concerns. This site is about becoming active. As I am a graphic and fine artist, one of my ways of helping is to make statements visually, and so I've made and will continue to make designs for Ts and Mugs, etc. which are available for sale so that everyone interested in making a difference can make their concerns known – preferably in peaceful groups and marches. Check out other vendors too. The important thing is that now is time to become a majority–numbers count. We are not going to be able to save many of the animals, plants, insects, and ecosystems threatened, and we won't be able to bring back what's already extinct. One may think this is too depressing. Yes, much is sad; however, there is so much to be positive and excited about. We can help, many wonderful and astounding stories of people making a difference exist, and I will include links to some of these. We must stop adding to the problem–reducing atmospheric carbon emissions, putting carbon back where it belongs, in the dirt—No more fracking! Preserve national parks. Return lands to their original state. Help clean up rivers. Remove lawns and grow meadows. And though extremely controversial, for those planning on having kids, limit the size of your family to no more than three: seeking to achieve zero population growth. Help make strong the movement toward 100% Green. There are many opportunities, and I believe this is where our economic future lies. Make this century be called The Environment Revolution. It's time. There will be (actually already are) many changes that we must address and need to prepare for. Let's embrace the changes and learn to work with them. This is going to be a very challenging time, and we are up for it. Look what we've been able to accomplish in the past. Imagine what we can do in our future. So despite the fair amount of pain associated with this site, as well as with the changes in our lifestyle, it is for good. Walk into a department store and ask, where does all the surplus go? For some it this site will be a wake-up call. Please join me and thank you. World Peace? Absolutely. Earth and World Peace go together. Learn to treat everyone and everything with dignity and respect. This is not a site of sound bites, as one may have already guessed. For millennials, I welcome you to express your thoughts beyond 140 characters. Your lives depend on this. It depends on stepping outside of yourself and working hard. Working for the good and watching it manifest, with the help of hundreds of others, make life worthwhile. Lastly, I am a Nichiren Buddhist, and, hence, my job is earth and world peace, I share a little about this beautiful practice, and I share a little about my fine art career. These, including the section on environmental issues, are categorized and found in the right-hand column with respect.
This is not a usual blog. First, It consists of a lot of essays and articles, many quite long, mostly written by me with the help of a lot of experts in a variety of fields and, therefore, connect to specific topics primarily related to environmental issues. Contributors via my research are quoted, given recognition, there are book recommendations, and there are links to original articles and videos for more information and for donations. I am not affiliated with any of these organizations that are asking for donations to help save chimpanzees, for example. Second and lastly, another difference is that I update articles when new information is found that needs to be included. So articles that one may have read a while ago may have new information. As a result, all articles will remain pertinent over time. In essence, they are living documents. If no longer pertinent, I will mark it as such, though keep it on the blog for research purposes.
As mentioned above, I am interested in helping to create an earth and world peace (environmental issues) movement. Fortunately, environmental concerns are becoming something that people think about, talk about, and are acting on. There have always been people who truly took to heart the many aspects related to working in harmony without the planet and have done many great good deeds contributing to improving our environment and spreading what they have learned despite some of them being forgotten in library stacks: fortunately there the internet. And, of course, the process of trying to figure out many of the environmental issues threatening our lives, either through simple grassroots efforts or rigorous scientific studies, is ongoing. Environmentalists are growing in number and speaking out as the collective consciousness is now recognizing what our future will be if we don't choose to act. There is not a lot of time. Get involved and VOTE.
One could say those wanting world peace are among the silent majority. Hate talk is so prevalent these days. I'm hoping that I can encourage people who are angry, fearful, or apathetic to take action for good. For the angry, the energy lost to the negative can be channeled to help, and they will feel better about themselves, discover real love of life and self, and how light this makes them feel. I very much want that for them. For the fearful, I hope I can encourage them to face their fears and take control of their lives. And lastly, the apathetic might discover that they can actually do something really important that will make them want to get up in the morning. For those in this population who think, what's the point, all is lost anyway; I encourage them to realized that this is simply not true and they can do something about it. It is time to act, or it may very well be that there will come a time when all is lost. Now I'm not a therapist, and I cannot fix anyone. I can make suggestions, possibly a little guidance, and give encouragement, but bottom line, each and every individual must recognize that they are responsible for how their lives look. I CANNOT FIX YOU; YOU MUST FIX YOURSELF. I believe that everyone can do this.
Also, most people believe that the attainment of world peace is a pipe dream. That doesn't mean that we give up on this noble cause. It is a daunting task as it involves taking notice of one's own actions and changing themselves first. Treating people as one's equal regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual differences and preferences, and social class is challenging. Treating people respectfully and hence with dignity, well, one just needs to look at the angst that has been created in our political arena to know that this too is a mountain to climb. I believe World Peace is doable. We are one; we are made of the same stuff. We are getting better. Believe it or not, the 20th and so far the 21st centuries, despite all the wars and conflicts we know about due to mass media, was and is the most peaceful era in humankind's history.
