THE ADVENT OF UNITED HUMANS : ‘A realization is emerging that everything we want, love, value, andhope for- everything that is enduringly important to us- depends on healing all of us into wholeness’-
of it all would be that in our own relationships, one would prefer a kinder, more humaneworld… Why then would grow ups take to arguments and Wars…?HUMAN NATURE: O! We always seem to have a Rationale, a Reason, an Alibi… call them explanations for our failures on Earth…
“It’s just human weakness”,Subject to human error,We are only human, It’s human nature, you know.”
There always seems to be a Separation from our humanness, We All seem to Believe in the
‘Human quintessence’ of our Lives, we all agree that we are humans, then why the disagreements?
“WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS” : ‘In actuality, if brought to the foreground, this agreement is the root thatnourishes and supports all the branches of human diversity and would allow us to act in concert.”Former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn once famously remarked:
“The day after a nuclear attack, what would we wishwe had done? Why aren’t we doing it now?”
The truth is that TRUE SECURITY REMAINS POSSIBLE ONLY THROUGH HUMAN UNITY:
Presently,rapid proliferation of polarizing forces, lethality, technical advances in warfare and communication, has made usless distant but certainly more vulnerable… Current measures seem impractical, and latent widespread resentment among groups and individuals pose unprecedented perils and challenges… To achieve humanagreement, we need some sort of an “insurance policy” against risks…
How do we then release and harness our universal human agreement?WE COME TO THE “MESSAGE OF HUMAN UNITY” :
In the True “Spirit” of Freedom(s), Let us join theworld’s six billion human beings… let us embrace our shared innate potential, make sincere efforts to ‘Unlearn’ our learned habits of inhumane and violent interactions, 9/11 was crucial, but there happens to be something more urgent and imperative, our major responsibility, our CHILDREN, our planet’s past, present & future! Weneed fresh perspectives, because the Lives of Others, including our very own, are at stake…The Cost Benefits of Economies investing in highest shared human priorities rather than WARFARE areenormous…like diverting a percentage of Military Expenditure to Social Development, like Health & Education…
SRI SRI AUROBINDO (“LIFE DIVINE”) has been followed from “THE IDEAL OF HUMAN UNITY”:To curb deforestation & reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, to tackle climate change, Renewable Energy can be used to improve access to Food and to Light, and to promote Enterprise. Projects with potential to play asignificant role in offsetting carbon emissions can actually drive Policies on Climate Change… incubating newenterprises, & obtaining subsidies, credit & soft-loans for end-users at micro-credit and institutional levels, andthese include Solar PV pumping systems (installation), Solar home systems, solar lanterns… A Renewable EnergyProject can generate both profit and employment. Profits include Pay Less for Power, and yield more reliable and better quality of light besides off course Employment-generation and profitable initiatives such as Drinking Water.Traditionally, Poverty-alleviation has been linked to schemes offering food, clothing and shelter. There is now agrowing understanding that Poverty can be alleviated or even eradicated by providing better and more dependableenergy, specifically Renewable Energy. ‘Way of the Future’ (in India, RE systems are expensive, not widelyavailable, and often unreliable), RE forever remains the best option environmentally, as also for Social Uplift…One has to look for creative ways to provide RE reliably & relatively cheaply to disadvantaged sectors. RE isGender-friendly and easy to operate.
