A short piece on ways of responding to the challenges of 2023
Happier New Year Alex!

(The word ‘psyche’ in Greek means Soul, so in your text replace it with ‘ego’)
According to mystics, every person born at this time will face all the challenges of our time in his/her life time.
Keep up your spirit, courage, love, compassion, reverence and physical body.
Thank you Alex - great piece!
The responses outlined here are also listed by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone in Active Hope, regarding how we approach human-driven ecological and environmental destruction. The Work That Reconnects people have in general been typically pro covid restrictions and all that's gone along with them, and this made me wonder about agendas and how we use the same psychological analyses to diagnose what is going on with whoever it is we think is not seeing what we are seeing. And it's always our own agenda which is the important one, of course.
I would previously have seen climate change etc as our biggest and scariest challenge, and now I see it in the rise of authoritarianism, and the fear of the former as being used to further the latter. Maybe I should be wondering if my fear of authoritarianism is hiding another even deeper issue? Just throwing out my thoughts and not sure where they are taking me!
Brilliant Alex, a truly informative piece thank you.
Together we go forward to create the new world.
Happy new year to you May it brings us freedom on all level’s.🙏🏽🌺🦋
Act for yourself, think for yourself and work for yourself. Find empowerment in self-sufficiency.
We could but we won't
We should but we don't
We mess with the Earth
Want bounty not dearth
So we take what we can
For self-serving man
We escaped from our caves
But the poor are still slaves
And the rich run the show
As all governments know
All our money is debt
Can't pay it back yet
Farmers murder our soil
While we love to burn oil
You can see with your eyes
It's not very wise
Our kids sure will suffer
when the show hits the buffer
Our lives could be good
How I wish that they would
But our culture is bust
We can't do what we must
So that's why I'm mad
and angry and sad
Sensational stuff. I purchased a print of The Good Reset from Bobs Cartoons so I can look at it when I forget where we are trying to get (back) to. I m volunteering, among others, for Australia Exits the WHO https://australiaexitsthewho.com/ which involves global groups trying to rid our nations of the cabals trojan horse - the WHO's IHR amendments. Rather live on my feet than die on my knees. Lion Mum from Downunder.
Love your comment (and afterword) on being anarchic Alex. Verbing it removes the label ! Really enjoyed the clarity and succinct overview of responses (and the illustrations).
