Why does the world need you to want more joy?


We are slowly breaking the biosphere that sustains us and the society that is meant to nourish us.  

In pursuit of profit we have sacrificed our happiness and freedom and continue to push our ecosystems to the point of collapse.  

A perfect storm approaches.


But the radical change we need won’t come by demanding more honest governments or fairer political systems or a more equitable distribution of wealth or more Royal commissions etc etc etc etc.

Let’s be realistic

So many of us have tried.  But greed, corruption and human frailty win every time, as it has done throughout history.  It is winning now, isn’t it? We are destroying the planet for a fist full of dollars.

We need a different kind of revolution; one that happens at a personal level, don't we.

The world needs happy, well-adjusted human beings who live with a deep sense of joy and presence whose happiness comes from within rather than by consuming more stuff  …..   and so their  choices will be more caring of other people and more sustainable for the biosphere. 

In case your are curious
