Community Vs Individual

Posted on July 10, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

While reading the book entitled “The Biology of Belief” by Bruce Lipton, an inspirational thought grabbed hold of me, a realization that God, in his infinite creative being, revealed just how intricate are the pieces, yet simple the whole.   The Bible, time and again tells us that we as individuals, to stay alive, must be part of the tree, for separated will eventually whither and die.  We must be part of a community, each with an individual purpose, serving our part of the whole. Helping each other, sharing, caring, growing, together as a community.

 We as individuals are also made up of a bustling community of over 50 trillion individual cells, individual intelligent beings that can survive outside our body on their own, but imbued with intent and purpose, actively seeking an environment that will support their survival, while at the same time, avoiding toxic or hostile ones.

If you were to look at our world as a planet, it too is made up of  individuals forming a community.   

 However, recent advances in genome science show just how intricate are the pieces with an additional mechanism of cooperation among the species.  Living organisms actually integrate their cellular communities by sharing their genes.  Until recently it was thought that genes are passed on only to the progeny of an individual organism through reproduction.  As it turns out, genes are shared not only among the individual members of a species, but also among members of different species. 

Each individual cell contains a memory, a memory of an experience.  These experiences are shared among other cells and organisms, to enhance the total memory “learned” experiences, which by the way is not an accident, it is natures way of enhancing the survival of the organism.  By sharing these memories, they influence the survival of all organisms that make up the community. We as individuals are a community, a community of 50 trillion cells. 

 This message should be taken to the world, that each person that makes up the world, must also work in collective unison to share our learned experiences, caring sharing, and growing together,  thus ensuring the survival of our world.

You make a difference

Posted on July 27, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

A friend and I were talking the other day about life purpose and how we can make a difference in the world. How can one person make a difference? Sometimes it doesn’t feel like you have anything to contribute. After all, you’re just one person. Just an ordinary person. Right?

Molly’s interest is in eco marketing and she hopes what she’s doing will help others become aware of what they can do to raise awareness of being green. Namely companies in their marketing/advertising campaigns.

It may not feel like it when she’s making deadlines or filing paperwork but Molly is making a difference. Not only is she making the companies aware of their contribution to being green, but she’s making the consumer aware how they can contribute. A win-win situation.

One person makes a difference. Never doubt that.

It doesn’t have to be anything as big as green marketing. I thought it was funny Molly didn’t think she’s doing anything big. She says she’s just doing her job, putting her twist on it by emphasizing being green. But each of us has the ability to make a difference whether you’re a big company, an advertising agency or an individual consumer.

Next time you wonder if you’re making a difference, take a look at what you do, what you say, what you think. All of it makes a difference even if it feels like you’re just doing your job.

You make a difference.

georgeI can tell you from personal experience that you can make a difference.

About 15 years ago, I engaged in a battle of enourmous proportions along with folks from all parts of the country, from New York State to North Carolina, including Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and all the way from Texas to Colorado and California to Alaska. It became a passion, even though it was totally volunteer work, and I wasn’t getting paid. 

The battle involved convincing state environmental regulatory agencies, who were actually on our side, to stand their ground against the EPA and the oil companies who, as part of the 1990 Clean Air Act, had called for a mandate to use a  left over toxic and hazardous chemical in the refining process, as an oxygenate to be included in gasoline in major  cities and areas that the EPA had determined to be not in compliance with air quality standards due to high exhaust emission levels. 

I had the opportunity to speak at a National Lawyers Environmental Conference in Houston in April of 1997.  I had submitted a detailed report to the conference to speak on entitled “How The  EPA is Violating The Clean Air Act.  Before I actually made the 2 hour talk, I had many reservations about my credibility, my past experiences, and the thought contimually went through my mind “Who am I to speak in front of all these folks.”  But the funny thing is, God works his magic in mysterious ways. 

The  day before I was to make the talk, I just happened to receive in the mail a copy of Readers Digest, which I enjoyed reading in my spare time, and in the “Quotable Quotes” section a quote jumped out at me that read something of the order, “It matters not a persons credentials, what makes the difference is having a cause”  That one phrase gave me the courage and determination to stand before a large group of attendees at this National Environmenal Conference of Environmental Lawyers from all over the US, and talk confidently about the problems this additive was causing all over the US, and how the oil companies manipulation of the EPA and the Clean Air Act, was doing untold damage to rives, lakes and water tables, as well as the health problems it caused including asthma, bronchitis, and even heart stress from the fumes. 

It took a few years to get the states to stop using the additive, but it is no longer being used in the US.  I can’t begin to tally the number of illnesses and deaths that were as a result of its use. The old excuse, “There are too many other things that could have caused it”  was their scapegoat.
