The 11th Hour

Today's highlight was the documentary The 11th Hour. The title refers to "a time which is nearly too late" and the subject of the film was the environment. I don't encourage piracy but this is something I think deserves to be watched by anyone who has been concerned by the environment at least once. So take some time and youtube it, download it through Netflix or whatever tickles your fancy.

I don't mean to be pushy but Ignorance is not bliss. It's an illusion, deception, falsehood, it's negligence. It's not taking a step forward, it's basically sitting down and rotting. Knowledge is power and yes, power corrupts. But it's not the rule nor the exception. It's a choice. It's how we use the knowledge. Knowledge can be flawed if it's not complete. Some of our great discoveries yielded great results but at the same time they did not have the full knowledge of the consequences. So, if you think about it, sometimes knowledge does not corrupt but rather incomplete knowledge is corrupt itself. Once knowledge is complete our own heart will make use of the knowledge.

Rather than thinking of filling your self of knowledge, be aware. Have awareness of the source, present state, benefits, downsides, consequences and then, make a CHOICE. We always have the power of choice and while we can change our choice, be aware that some choices have permanent effects. It's good if you make a choice for the greater good, remember that sometimes it can be too late.

If you can, if you please, help and let's stop the suicide of our own species. You don't have to do everything, just two things... start do something and spread the word. Take a step.

Enough preaching, peace.
