The world is currently in a stage of great transformation. We are beginning to realize that the old ways of competition and ‘survival of the fittest’ are not sustainable for individuals, businesses, or the planet.
We are now on the verge of something amazing. We have been given the opportunity to evolve our thinking. Although, at the same time, the planet is in the worst condition it has ever been in. Our unconscious acts of violence and pollution are resulting in the destruction of the very planet that allows us to live. The biggest threat to our existence is our own ignorance and our own unwillingness to change. With the industrial revolution came new technologies that allowed our species to flourish; what was once seen as a sign of growth and prosperity is now being looked back upon in hindsight as one of our biggest mistakes.
But it is not too late. We are aware of the destruction we have caused and are still causing to this planet, and we are still alive—meaning that we still have time to change. We have reached the point in our history where we have to decide to either evolve as a species and change our lifestyle, or continue to act in destructive ways killing not only our planet, but all life on it, including ourselves.
Since the biggest threat to the planet is our own behavior, the only way we can save ourselves is by changing our ways. In this book, we take an in-depth look at the ways in which humans are destroying the planet, the reasons why we are ignorant of the damage we cause, and the ways in which we can deprogram our unnatural and destructive habits and adapt to a more healthy and sustainable way of life. As we come to understand nature and ourselves, we will realize that world peace is only achievable through inner peace.
If we want a peaceful world, we must all become peaceful people. Though this is only the beginning; the real challenge lies in changing our lifestyles to be more in tune with nature and to interact with our world in ways that preserve the environment not only for ourselves, but for future generations as well.
We can no longer ignore the effects of our disconnected and self-centered ways, and time is running out before it will be too late to heal the damage that we have done to the Earth.
Conscious Collective informs the reader about the current state of the world and draws awareness to the changes that we must make as a species. If we want a better world, each of us must take responsibility for helping to create it.
