Your email series is so great– I love the positivity and hopefulness of the project. The issues we collectively face are so grave, but that doesn’t by any stretch mean that positivity and hopefulness aren’t appropriate. In fact, I think it’s the opposite — that the urgent issues of our time demand the most positivity we can muster. Prima Mundi is clearly going to help establish that path, and give people a way to express their willingness to hope and to help.

Thank you for the great work you are doing and the way you are doing it. Sharing quality information on the latest Earth news, in a way we can use it, is so needed at this time. I was pleased to see Chief Looking Horse featured with the Dalai Lama and other visionaries of this crucial time. You are indeed “a voice crying in the wilderness”, and you are heard and appreciated.

Lee Temple is a modern day renaissance man.
His command of so many fields such as cosmology, science, philosophy, psychology, spirituality, ecology and systems thinking is truly impressive.
He puts all this knowledge together in a lyrical, informative and practical presentation designed to provide us with all we need to make informed choices and take wise action to save our planet.
His mapping has a moral imperative: we must transform our consciousness and act.

We are in a tremendous fix. We burn a lot of coal and gas and oil on a daily basis in this world—as a result, the atmospheric concentration of co2 has zoomed past the maximum safe level of 350 parts per million, and now nudges 400 ppm. As a result, the Arctic, and most of the other ice on the planet, is melting swiftly; as a result, the oceans are 30% more acidic than they were a generation ago; as a result, we see a steady and devastating increase in both flood and drought.
This is the first truly global problem that we’ve ever faced. The sources of the trouble aren’t found everywhere—many people on earth burn little or no fossil fuel—but the effects can now be found in every corner of the planet. In fact, many of the hardest hit places are ones that have done little to cause the crisis.
We don’t lack for answers: renewable energy is now a very real possibility, not just a hope. But the forces of the status quo—especially the big energy companies—do everything they can to keep us from getting there. So the world really does need to unify, in order to stand up to their millions. We’ll never outspend Exxon, but unified we can find other currencies to work in: passion, spirit, creativity. It’s been so gratifying to watch millions come together for demonstrations around the world—but this movement needs to get much bigger, to include as much of humanity as it possibly can.
Big crises can lead to big, powerful changes. Let’s hope we can make that happen here!

He uses the language and lenses of science to reveal the essential nature of the universal creation process, so that we might better understand the magical, miraculous spirit embodied in its mechanics and behavior—the spirit that is the bedrock foundation of humanity and our world.
